This what I was thinking before. I.e. that inside the exec's brains, all they're doing is making a plan completely based on how much money they can make.Originally posted by pepper
We can only guess why RCA has decided not to go the preferential treatment route. Perhaps they feel that they waited too long with both Kelly and Justin's CDs, and don't want to risk having Ruben and Clay fall out of popular consciousness. Perhaps they feel that publicity for Ruben will help Clay's sales, and that publicity for Clay will help Ruben's. Perhaps they'll flip a coin or decide on alphabetical order or age order or shoe size order to determine which CD should be released first. Most likely they'll do it based on which release date for which CD will give it the best chance at high sales figures.
I don't care too much when they release the cds, i.e. together or separately. If they release Ruben's first, cool. If they don't, whatever. I'll be buying both of them. I just re-watched one of the shows as I was labeling my videos, and I fell in love with both of these guy's voices all over again.
I'm fine with them releasing Ruben's cd first. I think they'll both do very, very, well, and I can't wait!
