When most of us get good news, we throw a party. For YouTuber JC Caylen, he was already at a party when he learned his good fortune.
“I was doing a follow spree at a party," said Caylen, ever the social-savvy businessman. The 23-year-old social-media star's manager kept texting him a final countdown as the two watched his compilation album, Neptones, ascend to No. 1 on the Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart. And when it finally got there, all Caylen could think was, "Whoa, that's awesome."
While Caylen joked that he never even though his album would make it to the top 30, let alone No. 1, it's not that much of a surprise to the rest of us. Neptones is the latest compilation album from Heard Well, a record label started by YouTube star Connor Franta, Big Frame talent manager Andrew Graham and entrepreneur Jeremy Wineberg. While it's the first one to hit the top spot, its predecessors -- compilation albums from the likes of Franta himself and Lohanthony -- all saw chart success.
