*As mentioned in our interview with popular radio hosts MikeAdamOnAir & ItsMcGinn, fan requests are an important part of radio play.

What To Do:

Below is an auto-tweet that will require you to insert an @. By clicking “REQUEST TWEET” below, you will be brought to a pre-generated tweet that will have copy to request Two of Us. You must place the @ of the radio station you want to request #TwoOfUs on at the end or the beginning of the tweet. You are encouraged to add emojis, words, photos/videos/gifs, and any creativity to the tweet so they are not too repetitive. Be original, have fun!

You can also head over to our LouisT91Radio twitter account dedicated to radio promotions and requests and retweet and reply to those tweets as well.

Radio play is a crucial aspect of the promotion of #TwoOfUs, as locals will hear the song and Shazam it, purchase it, interact with it, and it contributes to chart positions in the US. Let's get requesting!
