In case you don’t know who Aubrey O’Day was a part of the legendary girl group Danity Kane and now she is a part of Dumb Blondes, still legendary. Honestly, I love Aubrey. She is the real deal, if you follow her on Twitter you will know exactly what I mean.
Well, Aubrey was on Sway in the morning and she got real about the radio game.
Basically, you have to pay in order to get some plays, that simple.
Oh just in case you don’t know what payola is, according to Wikipedia, it is “in the music industry, is the illegal practice of payment or other inducement by record companies for the broadcast of recordings on commercial radio in which the song is presented as being part of the normal day’s broadcast. Under U.S. law, a radio station can play a specific song in exchange for money, but this must be disclosed on the air as being sponsored airtime, and that play of the song should not be counted as a “regular airplay”.”
It is a big no, no but listen to Aubrey calling out the radio industry while being on the radio, I absolutely love it!
Keep spilling that tea Aubrey!
