    i feel like dvsn tried pretty hard to not be mysterious with the last album rollout

    i also think a lot of artists arent intentionally trying to be mysterious but rather are going thru it behind the scenes and thus disappearing for a while / struggling to put in the necessary work to take the next steps in their career for whatever reason / stuck in a bad deal. but for a lot of fans it looks like theyre intentionally trying to ghost or create an aesthetic

    Carti had a whole promo campaign about being introverted & people painted him as mysterious for not doing interviews lol

  • PinkPantheress used to be mysterious.

  • dvsn wasn’t too mysterious they just decided to make “toxic boyz” their persona and the music wasn’t good enough to excuse the corny image

  • Cowboy Artist

    But it didn't ruin her career.

    Thanks to ICE SPICE! We can rock Pinkpanthress!

  • It’s funny how some of the artists I could name wouldn’t even ring bells or are only songwriters now for a multitude of different reasons

  • I think sometimes that the idea of mystery attached to some artists isn’t fair bc they are actually trying to preserve their humanity in a traditional way that artists would prior to social media but a lot of the examples in the thread were artists who move a specific way for marketing purposes as well

    it’s a fine line fr

  • BIG early

    it worked for The Weeknd

    Ehh at the beginning, but little by little he ended up showing his personality as he went more mainstream.
