Many aspiring artists have become major stars by posting covers online. However, just singing the songs you love isn’t quite enough to capture the internet’s attention.
Here are the three kinds of songs that you should be covering.
1. The popular song cover will bring in the views.
Covering popular songs comes as a no-brainer. However, not every cover artist has to be singing Katy Perry’s latest hit just to get views. Instead, you should learn to play the songs that are the most popular in your favorite genres, whether that be a ukelele rendition of a Kanye song or an acoustic version of ACDC.
2. The highly requested cover will satisfy your target audience.
Growing your audience should come second to maintaining the audience that you already have. By covering highly requested songs, you’ll satisfy your main audience and keep them coming back for more.
3. The “underground” song will bring attention to both you and another rising artist.
Covering a song by a band or singer who’s yet to hit the mainstream will bring attention to both your talent and the other artist’s work. Also, these kinds of covers have a better chance of being seen and therefore shared by the original artists.
Covering songs is a great way to increase your online presence. Record these three kinds of covers to both grow and maintain an audience for your music.
