In this article, you’re going to find the main tricks on how to make your Insta content popular and thriving amongst all the other lookalike content.

The more users register in Instagram’s system, the harder the whole process of online promotion actually becomes. This social media platform is probably the most strict when it comes to new guidelines and rules and that’s the additional reason why developing your content might become a big problem. That’s why paid promo services are much-needed and the offer on the market of these services keeps on growing daily. Yet things are not that easy anyway: because of how huge this market is, there are lots of scammers and indecent promo-managers who use bots and other machinery to promote their clients’ accounts. A chance to buy Instagram likes can really affect your online life positively and further, we’re going to tell you how exactly it can happen.

Remember this: you shouldn’t be trying to fool the techs that work for Instagram, so therefore, you cannot use the services that exist because of bots. Unreal and inefficient likes that are actually no people but just empty pages will lead you nowhere. To get yourself popular on the platform and looking like an already successful vlogger you really need to pay attention to the services that exist because of the cooperation between real people. Finding an agency that sells such services can be hard. Most of the time the opportunity to wind the number of thumbs up works just because a company has a certain pool of fake pages that are able to follow their clients and create a visibly successful profile. 

If you choose to buy fake services, your money will be quickly spent and the results won’t be there, because any social media platform’s techs are currently trying to get rid of all the fake accounts that are present on their website. It happens because people are visiting social media looking for social interaction, and fake accounts are just littering the space, making it inhuman and unhappy. You have to hold on a second and spend some more time on finding a decent company that sells decent services: but do you have time and energy for that? We don’t think so: people who’re trying to create quality content are usually over the head busy and cannot find a spare minute to read a single review. 

That’s why we’re here: we want to give you a small clue on how you can make your life easier: skip the research and come to Soclikes.com as we are the company that cares for their clients at each step of online promotion. We have been on the market for social media promotion for years and we have totally figured out how to work quickly, efficiently and with no risks for our customers. 

Promotion with Soclikes; step by step guide. 

If you’re new and you don’t know much about online promotion, you can always ask for help in the chat on Soclikes.com. We’re trying to always stay online and help our customers as soon as possible. You can ask about something that’s bothering you, you can ask what packages are the best ones to combine with one another and you can also ask for an individually created package if you cannot find something that suits your needs quite right on the website. 

Usually, the delivery itself takes us several hours from the moment that you’ve created your order and have paid for it, but sometimes it can take a little bit longer and can last through 24-72 hours. It all depends on the size of the pack that you have chosen and on the amount of work that our managers are going through right now. In any case, there is no need to worry if a service isn’t coming your way at the same second that you’ve paid for the pack. It’s going to be here in the exact amount that you have chosen and your likes count is going to grow immensely right behind your eyes. And all the likes that you’re going to get will be coming from actual living people who have their own accounts on Instagram and who’re willing to cooperate with us as a promo company, 

Our workers are always here to fix everything as soon as possible and they are constantly active in chat on Soclikes.com. If talking in the chat isn’t quite for you, you can always use our support team email address that you’re able to find in the contacts section. We’re trying to give our clients maximum informational and technical support to make them comfortable while buying from us. We also have tons of paying options available: from MasterCard and Paypal to rarer such as cryptocurrency and some specific online wallets. 

Don’t hesitate and postpone — you’ll never know how great the online promo can work for you if you don’t try it. We have the widest variety of available options and you can always create a promo campaign that would consist of several packs: in our opinion, this method gives the quickest and the most astonishing results in the shortest time. 

Y2K x BBNO$ – Wawawa

Artist/producer Y2K and rapper bbno$ have joined forces once again to release the addictive earworm “Wawawa”. Listen HERE and watch the video HERE.

Says Y2K, “Wawawa’ (nearly titled Lalala 2) is the next installment in a 3 part fantasy saga about a halfling who journeys across the world to a volcano to destroy an evil ring. Wawawa was written remotely due to the pandemic, not something that bbno$ and I have ever really done before. As a result the record ended up changing and evolving over the course of multiple sessions/notes spread out this summer and into fall. I’m stoked on the result, and I hope our listeners feel the same!”

Ari additionally notes, “Also I am dressed as a hot mom in the music vid.”

“Wawawa” is the first joint offering since the release of their 2X Platinum viral hit “Lalala” which peaked Top 5 on the Global Spotify Chart and was routinely in the Top 20 on Spotify’s U.S. chart; listen HERE. Y2K and bbno$ also released the high octane “Lalala Remix” featuring Grammy Award winner Enrique Iglesias and Multi-platinum, Grammy, Juno and Polaris Prize nominated singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen.

Big $TUNT – Capitalize Off Pain

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS!

INTRODUCING BIG $TUNT: THE ALL AMERICAN SIXTEEN-YEAR-OLD RAPPER FROM YORK, SOUTH CAROLINA

WATCH NEW MUSIC VIDEO “CAPITALIZE OFF PAIN” HERE

WITH OVER 10 MILLION STREAMS TO DATE, LISTEN HERE

At the early age of sixteen, Big $tunt has released his debut music video “Capitalize Off Pain,” shot in his hometown of York, South Carolina, and directed by Dr. Teeth. Watch HERE. In his debut with Block Ent/Columbia Records, Big $tunt unveils a day in his life as he notably juggles his music and high school football career.

About Big $tunt
Rather than run away from life’s trials, tribulations, and tough times, Big $tuntconfronts them head-on in his music, and even uses them as fodder for inspiration. That tenacity can be credited for his rapid rise from the small rural town of York, SC to over 10 million streams, 250K-plus Tik Tok creates, and a deal with Block Entertainment/Columbia Records (all before his senior year of high school). He grew up with five siblings on his mother’s side and another five siblings on his father’s side as the middle child in both. In seventh grade, he teamed up with soon-to-be regular collaborator BiG J5 and cut his teeth on the mic. By high school, they “finally got into a real studio, because there isn’t one in York’. He featured on BiG J5’s “BrandNew Remix” and dropped “Thuggin” and “on gang.” In between, he excelled on the football field, playing cornerback and wide receiver for his school team. He transferred the hustle from the field back to the studio. It shows on his breakthrough single “Capitalize Off Pain.” On the track, a skittering beat and trap bounce echo beneath his singular and surgical high-register delivery. His voice slices right through the production as the hypnotic chant captivates. After racking up 1.9 million Soundcloud plays, it exploded on Tik Tok with countless fan videos.  As he balances hip-hop, football, and school, his grind never lets up with more music on the horizon.

Bella Thorne – Lonely

 BELLA THORNE DROPS NEW MUSIC VIDEO AND SINGLE
“LONELY”

As the first hit song, Bella’s virality and social media influence continues to push her way of confidently creating on the edge. Bella reminds the world once again that she is not afraid to be transparent when it comes to her sexuality womanhood by releasing a song that talks about topics usually seen as taboo by a woman.

“Lonely” finds Bella Thorne expressing her dilemma of being a girl alone who turns to her phone and the people on it to deal with her loneliness. The song brings to light the idea that women and people all over, especially during these times, are turning to their phone to find connection with others.

The idea of being alone is one that is often perceived as bad or as not the ideal situation. Bella reminds her listeners the message that it is okay to feel these emotions. Watch the video here and the teaser here.

Read a Q&A with the singer, Bella Thorne, below.

What is lonely about and what inspired you to create it?

Well, the idea came from my own personal experience. When I am lonely and horny up late at night, I kept looking at my phone going on Instagram scrolling through different apps, really just wanting that attention from someone. I was writing a lot of music at that time as well so I was always in the writing mode you could say. I just kept hearing “I only checked my phone when I’m lonely and horny, only check my phone…” I was just like, man, I keep hearing this and I just had to go into the studio within the next few days to record it, because I just couldn’t get out of my head. Yeah.

It’s been a few years since your last music project, what made you decide to choose “Lonely” as your first release back?

I wanted to choose “Lonely” because I think it’s a great song to really set off the rest of the record. You know, it’s definitely fun, playful, it’s got that pop anthem vibe to it. I just knew it was a strong contender when I wrote it.

What was your creative process behind the song?

After that late night that I was talking about, I went in the studio in the next few days, we sat down, we started strumming to it, and thinking about different chords and what not behind it. And then I just wrote it with my fav writing partners in crime.

Can we expect more music to be coming out soon following this first project?

Yes, I am definitely releasing more songs, but I also have videos. You know, I have an arsenal written up of songs that I do want to put out. Every song feels like it kind of matches to different genre, but each song is also kind of a standalone you could say. I would definitely describe myself as like a genre-less artist, in the sense that I’ll be releasing chapters of my life. Whichever songs fit that chapter is the chapter I’ll be releasing, but all the chapters will be different. I intend to keep them that way because that really is a part of who I am. I don’t think artists are stuck in just one lane because as a person you go through a lot in life and you change and you learn, and you decide you like different stuff. I think, watching an artist grow is so important and definitely in this new release of music, you’re going to see that growth.

What are some topics you will be tackling in your music?

I talk a lot of topics. This is a hard question because I kind of like to talk about a lot of things. It just depends on what’s on my mind. I’m either writing from personal experience or thoughts, or I’m writing as a character with someone else in mind, and I’m completely stepping into another person. This actually makes the acting side and the music side really connect, which I personally like a lot.

What originally inspired you to venture into the music industry?

Well, originally, I was really scared of hearing that I didn’t have a voice. I thought I was tone deaf. I still say that because I’m still not sure if it was me or not. My voice was bad, and Disney really wanted me to sing, but I didn’t want to. They talked me into it and I didn’t like it. It was a bad experience and I basically said I wouldn’t go back to music again. But then I did the movie “Midnight Sun.” It was my first time singing again and that was all because singing was very important to the character. I understood so I was down to do it since it was a big part of the movie. That experience kind of set me in a much better tone with music, the whole process really made me fall in love with music. I also got to experience music through the acting side, which is a side that I was already really connected to. I think that connection helped me bond more to the music.

What is different about this upcoming release from past projects?

I think honestly from my heart what’s different is that this recent music is 100% me. You know, I really feel like I finally found my voice, where I want to be, and who I am at this current moment in time and I’ve really gotten to express that thoroughly through my music.

So, you’re really popular on TikTok, how has it been collaborating with some of the hottest influencers on that?

Yeah, it’s been awesome. I love all the TikTok kids and I love meeting and being immersed in a new community. I think the whole TikTok world is so interesting in general with the algorithms, the way it works. It really is so different from any other app. I personally love seeing people on my newsfeed that I’ve never seen before doing the funniest shit, so it’s made me definitely fall in love with TikTok.

What’s next for you, music wise?

Well, I want to release the songs, you know, one at a time and just kind of put a vibe out.

I love these songs and I love these videos that I’ve been working really, really hard on. I directed and wrote every single video and I feel like it definitely matches the music. So, I’m really happy with how everything’s going there, so hopefully that is translated.

Do you have any virtual performances we can look forward to seeing in the near future?

Well if all goes well, and legally everything is approved, then it looks like we might be doing a New Year’s live streaming event or concert with some of my super dope friends that want to be a part of it and just kind of creating a vibe. This is for people that can’t be with their family or friends and they’re watching from home and they want to listen to some dank ass music.

Yet, she found herself following in the normal footsteps of a teenager and enrolling in college, while still working on music and performing at local café’s on the side. It wasn’t until she and her mom were involved serious car accident that forced her to drop out and help her mom recover from injuries that she fully realized how important her dreams were and that was the turning point.

After living in NYC and experiencing the music scene there, she set her sights on LA where she was embraced by the music community of creators and began to pursue her dream, honing her craft and learning to play the guitar most recently. Fast forward to 2020, little did Fousheé  know that her voice would become streamed by millions as the hook on Sleepy Hallow’s viral track “Deep End (Freestyle),” influencing her to reveal her identity as the vocalist in a TikTok video that now has nearly 6 million views. With a clear creative vision and the release of her own full version of “Deep End,” Fousheé  is ready to show the world who she is.

Tokyo's Revenge Press Image by Kevin Maya Used By 360 Magazine

Tokyo’s Revenge Q&A

By Sabrina Weiss

Under the alias Tokyo’s Revenge, this youthful rapper’s prestige supersedes his TikTok fame. The anonymous musician’s track “GOODMORNINGTOKYO” blew up on TikTok and topped music charts, but his raw talent and earnest personality translate beyond the app. With his new song and music video “GOTHAM” and new album 7VEN, Tokyo continues to maintain his unique style with anime and comic-book inspiration. 

With humility and honesty, Tokyo navigates his quick rise to fame with his friends, who double as his musical team, by his side. The young talent spoke equally as transparently about his previous struggles with homelessness, personal approach to mental health, and favorite flavor of Starbursts (pink). All the while, Tokyo giggled and challenged us to video game battles. Even beyond his musical talent, Tokyo’s personality gravitates listeners and a loyal following.

When did you begin your music career?

Well, I did some free-style rapping in high school a bit, but that was mostly to fit into different friend groups. Then, for awhile after high school, I was homeless and ended up couch hopping at different friends’ houses. At one point I stayed with some friends who were constantly making music but didn’t know how to engineer it. It was from these friends that I got the inspiration to learn how to engineer the music. At first, I just engineered their music. But, I only started posting my stuff on Soundcloud about two months into me learning how to mix music. I’m not sure why it took that amount of time, something just clicked at that point.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, you were on your As Good as Dead Tour. We saw all the love you give your fans, particularly when you surf the crowd and jump in the mosh pit with your listeners. What was your most memorable moment of the tour? 

Oh man there were a lot of good moments. One of the most memorable times would be when I had to lie to security about whether I was going to get in the crowd. If I were to say yes then they would chase me in there. They go in and grab me as quickly as they can when I tell them I’m going to crowd surf. But, lowkey, I hate when they do that. The crowd is where I get my energy from. So I lied so I could be in there with my fans for longer.

There is a Discord ping in your new song “Gotham.” Do you actually use the chat app?

Well, it’s funny you ask that because I have my Discord open right now. I am constantly in my Discord with thousands and thousands of my supporters. I’ll hop in there and play video games with everyone and chat with all of you. I was actually just in one right before this interview and my buddy knocked on my door and said, “Hey man, you’ve got that interview right now, hop off real quick.”

After you blew up on TikTok, we are all wondering what you will do next. How do you plan on maintaining long-term relevance?

By doing whatever I feel like. I learned early on that I am not striving to have fans and followers based on trends. I want fans, followers, and family who support me through any medium I choose because I feel like I am connected to them more than just musically. Whether it be through YouTube videos or making music, I just want to continue to be connected to my fans. My fans are one of my major support systems.

What made you decide to be anonymous?

The idea of no one really knowing about me and trying to figure me and my personality out through clues in my music, rather than social media, is really appealing to me. I am not super attached to social media because if you try to over present yourself through social media, then people won’t be into your art. I want my music to get my face out, not my social media. Some artists are more focused on being social media influencers rather than their art and I’m just the opposite. I don’t talk much about me, I just talk through my music and let my listeners figure me out.

Along the topic of the modern musician, what do you think the industry is missing right now?

Actually, I don’t think the music industry is missing anything right now. If anything, I think there is too much of everything. A little while ago, I had an epiphany and thought to myself, “The biggest problem we have right now is that we are overexposed to everything.” And I feel the same way about the music industry. 

Only two years ago, you were couch-hopping at friends’ houses and now you have quickly risen to fame. How have the struggles of homelessness made you successful in your career?

It taught me not to get comfortable, ever. Being homeless gave me this huge hunger to never stop doing something, because back then I wasn’t focused on music immediately. I was focused on finding a place to work and to sleep. But, if I was comfortable just living like that, then I would probably still be doing just that.

I always wanted to do something bigger and better than couch-crashing, bigger and better than finding a shitty apartment to stay in and just making enough money to survive. I wanted to level-up to a point that my friends and I can be comfortable forever, and that’s how I got here.

You’ve spoken honestly about your mental health in the past. What do you do to get your head right?

I wake up and take a super long, burning hot shower. And then I think of everything but music. I don’t try to force myself into the music. I wake up and remind myself that I am a regular person who came from one place to this place with my best friends. 

We all focus on each others’ mental health more than anything else, and the music is tied into that. I try not to think of music as a job, because it wasn’t a job to us prior it was an outlet for all of our feelings. We play Smash Bros, go out and do something, and then if we are in the zone to make music, then we make music. If not, then maybe tomorrow! There’s no pressure.

Surf Mesa x Somewhere

SURF MESA SHARES OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR SOMEWHERE

RIAA Gold-Certified Hit ily (i love you baby) Accumulates Over 820 Million Combined Global Streams And Climbs To Top 10 At Top 40 Radio genre-blending wunderkind [Surf Mesa] has teamed up with Gus Dapperton to deliver yet another song-of-summer contender; Flaunt

View “Somewhere (ft. Gus Dapperton) Official Video Here.

Surf Mesa and Gus Dapperton are enjoying a ride in the country until a car crash sends them on a detour to purgatory in the official video for their single Somewhere. Their spirits are drawn to an isolated house and a mysterious woman played by model/actress Havana Liu who lures them inside. Director Dane Ray (Nathan Bajar, Quiet Luke, Delicate Steve) teams up with director of photography Jesse Bronstein to evoke sleek 80’s thriller films that mirror the track’s pulsating out-of-body essence, using double dolly shots to simulate ghost-like movement. The video, which PAPER premiered earlier today, was shot in the historic town of Stony Point, north of New York City, where centuries ago, the Battle of Stony Point proved to be a turning point in the Revolutionary War.

Combined global streams of Somewhere have surpassed 7 million. In its premiere of the song, Flaunt said, Astralwerks artist Surf Mesa is a fresh talent who’s well on his way to becoming a household name. With his latest offering, Somewhere, the genre-blending wunderkind has teamed up with Gus Dapperton to deliver yet another song-of-summer contender; LADYGUNN observed with a pulsating beat and ebbing and flowing ballads.

Somewhere is perfect for any occasion. CULTR noted, The melding of this duo’s creative minds has generated a warm, melodic vibe that categorizes this single in the feel-good genre. Somewhere is the follow-up to Surf Mesa’s Gold-certified hit ily (i love you baby) ft. Emilee, which has amassed over 820 million combined global streams and climbed to top 10 on the U.S. Top 40 radio chart. Refinery 29 praised the dreamy-pop stylings of ily (i love you baby) and placed the track on its Labor Day Weekend 2020 playlist. The song also found its way onto Rolling Stone’s Music At Home: Staycation. A lullaby best accompanied by the rocking of a hammock [an] earworm of a song.

Surf Mesa talks about ily (i love you baby), Somewhere and collaborating with Marshmello and Halsey on the remix of Be Kind, in this interview with The Knockturnal. Gus Dapperton has surpassed 165 million career streams and sold 25,000 album equivalents of his debut album, Where Polly People Go To Read. His new album, Orca, was released earlier this month on AWAL. He kicked off 2020 by joining BENEE on the global hit “Supalonely,” which has achieved over 400 million Spotify streams in the U.S. alone.

About Surf Mesa:

File under mellifluous; That’s how Los Angeles’ Powell Aguirre likes to think of the music he makes as Surf Mesa. It’s electronic, but full of organic texture. It’s rooted in dance, but sounds best by the light of the full moon. It’s sweet, but also thoughtful. In other words, as Surf puts it, music for good feels. That phrase certainly sums up his biggest hit to date, ily (i love you baby) featuring Emilee, a tropically tinged bop that was born on TikTok, but quickly conquered listening platforms around the world, amassing over 820 million combined streams to date, topping U.S. and Global Viral Charts, and debuting on Top 40 radio. Early press has included Rolling Stone, Billboard, HITS, Idolator, Soundazed and Fresh Music Freaks.

Though he’s only 20, Surf has logged an impressive number of hours honing his craft. He grew up in Sammamish, Washington, outside Seattle, where an older brother hooked him up with FL Studio when Surf was in third grade. The summer after his senior year, Surf broke his leg and was bedridden for months. Unexpectedly, that time stuck at home paid off in the form of an EP, titled bedroom, of course. When the cast came off, he wasted no time moving in with musician friends in Los Angeles.

Then one night scrolling TikTok, he came across Batesville, Arkansas’ Emilee Flood playing an acoustic cover of Frankie Valli’s 1967 hit Can’t Take My Eyes Off You. Captivated by her honeyed voice, Surf dropped the audio into his DAW and, within hours, had posted his remix on SoundCloud. Soon, label reps were blowing up his phone. He signed with Astralwerks.There’s no shortage of collaborations in the works, beginning with Surf’s remix of Marshmello and Halsey’s Be Kind and his new single, Somewhere ft. Gus Dapperton. While the electronic landscape evolves at a dizzying speed, Surf knows what he wants from his own music. He calls it electronic alternative; a style that balances digital textures with piano, guitar, and even acoustic drums, and focuses on songwriting as much as sick beats. It’s catchy. It’s chill. It’s mellifluous.

About Gus Dapperton:

If you’ve struggled with the many tentacles of depression and its ability to pull you under and away from family and friends from your entire world you’ll recognize that sentiment. It’s the opening line of First Aid, the lead song from Gus Dapperton’s new album Orca. Over spare acoustic guitar, miked so close that it sounds nestled in your ear, Gus delivers the line, and if you’ve followed the 23-year-old’s career from the bright and charming early singles and EPs to 2018’s full-length album Where Polly People Go to Read, you’ll recognize that the singer-songwriter-producer has entered new territory here. Since joining AWAL in 2018, Gus has achieved tremendous career growth. He has surpassed 165 million career streams and sold 25,000album equivalents of his debut album, Where Polly People Go To Read. His videos have amassed 30 million views on YouTube. A press darling, he’s had features in Pitchfork, Wonderland, SPIN, i-D, The New York Times, Vogue, Brooklyn Vegan and more. After selling out multiple global tours on the last album campaign, Gus is ready to once again take the world by storm, with his new album, Orca, released earlier this month. Gus kicked off the year by joining artist BENEE on her single “Supalonely,” debuting at #88 on the Billboard Hot 100, marking Gus’ first appearance on the chart. It is exploding at DSPs, amassing 188 million streams in the U.S. alone, its growth propelled by a Tik Tok dance challenge, which has seen over 11 million videos created. Hitting the US Top 40 radio, it is quickly becoming a global success, with adds at BBC Radio 1 and Capital Super List (UK), NRJ (France + Norway), Puls and DLF Nova (Germany), Q Music and 3FM (Netherlands), and was the most added track at commercial radio in Australia.

About Astralwerks:

Established in 1993 in New York City, Astralwerks was the brainchild of Caroline Records staffers who saw an opportunity for a label focused on the nascent electronic and ambient scene. Now based at the historic Capitol Records Tower in Hollywood, Astralwerks has emerged as a modern, artist-first label and the #1 market share leader for dance/electronic music in the U.S. Combining a scalable, independent and global-thinking ethos with the ability to tap into the resources of a major label has enabled Astralwerks to sign such artists as ILLENIUM, Jonas Blue, Alison Wonderland, EDEN, ZHU and Alesso. As a testament to its pioneering approach, Astralwerks has amassed 30 GRAMMY nominations, taken home six GRAMMY Awards and had historic releases from the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Swedish House Mafia, Halsey, Porter Robinson, Phoenix, Eric Prydz, Fatboy Slim and many others. The label has also released such massive singles as the 5x Platinum Happier by Marshmello + Bastille and FISHER’s Losing It.

Doja Cat – Freak

Today, multi-platinum, chart topping rapper/singer/songwriter/producer Doja Cat officially releases “Freak” at all digital service providers via Kemosabe/RCA Records.

Tyga which appears on her sophomore album Hot Pink, released in November. She made her late night debut performance of the track on Late Night with Seth Meyers. She was also named the iHeart Radio “On The Verge” artist, with “Juicy” reaching #1 on the Rhythm radio chart and top 10 at Urban.
