How do mixtapes, singles, albums work.

Is there usually a certain order, such as...

Release a mix tape or two, then a single, then an album, or album then single, etc.

what is generally the route people take when wanting to reach out to everyone and be heard?

I'm recording rap, hip hop and pop

Mixtape
Then a sinlge from the real album
Then album.

However, many people are releasing "mixtapes" as albums, so then you'd go single, then mixtape.

Doesnt matter though how you do it. The biggest factor is constant, targeted promotion. You can sell a fish a cup of water if you constantly promote.

Thats often the difference in being a dope yet unheard artist, or an OK artist with huge buzz......... Promotion ! ! ! !
