I don’t think another project would be able to get the same steam and success that No Control did. The reason No Control was so successful is for a bunch of reasons that all came together at the same time - people were frustrated because of the narratives that were being carried out last week, people were frustrated because of the lack of ot4, people were frustrated because of Louis’ voice getting shat on by Shahid, people were frustrated because Zayn left and we didn’t get another single from FOUR.
I think it would be hard to replicate those circumstances again for another song.
For No Control…I mean, we can make as many new events and stuff as we want, but if we can’t get the whole of the fandom onboard then then it won’t have the same widespread effect that last week did. We’ve tried.
I mean, I’m following like 50 radio stations right now. When I see them tweet out a call for requests, I reply to their tweet asking for No Control. That’s what I’m doing right now and if something makes /everyone/ pick back up again I’ll hop right onboard again too. I’m happy to answer asks putting out a call to radio stations too.
Who knows, maybe when the results of the Billboard poll come out everyone will get excited and hyper about it again.
(Also I’m bitter at Saturday Night Online, they should have played No Control last night, the hashtag #RomeoPlayNoControl trended in 7 COUNTRIES, people were putting in work, they just didn’t want to play it.)
So! If people give me suggestions and are willing to organize something that they think will get everyone going again for No Control, I’m happy to do what I can, but the fandom in general has a short attention span and focus. And I don’t particularly feel up to starting all over again with a new song.
