Does this make sense?

I was talking with a friend who got a managment deal and her manager made her take down all her songs from itunes cos she said that labels wont be interested in someone if they have songs up already

Maybe im wrong but I think this is BS
Anyone with more know how care to chime in?

Total B.S. In fact the opposite is true. Labels these days, for the most part, won't even consider acts who aren't already rigorously promoting themselves and showing that they have the ability to sell records.

Maybe he's only thinking about little labels, which it might be true for (they won't be doing any decent promo anyway, so want to get there percentage from all early sales to the girls friends etc...) It won't be true for any decent label.

Im unsure
I kinda feel bad for my friend cos shes under the impression now she has a manager she will get a major label just like that
And I keep telling her its not that simple
And now she's believing such BS
