Great debut singles are often times building blocks to great careers, while a great debut single is something an artist always dreams of, sometimes it’s not always the case.
A great debut single can have people label you as a one-hit wonder if you don’t live up to the hype, a great single too can also leave an impression on listeners that can last forever
