LOVE FLOWS FOR ROBBY JOHNSON’S “HATE ME TONIGHT”
Radio Gatekeepers Downloading, Streaming Of Single Pushes It Top 5
(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) Country sensation Robby Johnson’s new single “Hate Me Tonight” won’t be released to retailers until October 30, but early response from radio is topping the charts. Advancing his debut album Don’t Look Back, “Hate Me Tonight” has consistently been a top 5 download and stream on leading music industry distribution platform Play MPE.
The service that station program directors and others use to access single release for listening and airplay has seen Johnson’s latest ranked No. 2 in country for the week ending Oct. 15. The song has continued to spike into the top 5 this week, as well.
Programmers have good reason to keep up with Robby following a groundbreaking introduction with his viral video “South Of Me.” Nearing three million views, the clip went on to top the CMT Pure 12-Pack Countdown for seven weeks and earned Johnson major media including the Late Show with David Letterman, FOX’s Huckabee, USA Today, TV Guide and The Tennessean.
The 13-track James Stroud-produced Don’t Look Back arrives January 12 bearing the new single, in which Johnson sings to a love interest, urging her to join him in facing their problems:
You know I ain’t one to pick a fight
And the last thing I want to do is see you crying
But if we go round and round pretending like everything’s alright
We’re gonna wake up in an empty bed replaying what we should have said
Reliving ways that we could have saved it
Pre-orders for the album begins on October 30 will include instant access to the single and four other tracks – “1, 2, 3, 4,” “Shady,” “Together,” and “I Ain’t The Guy.”
