#Orion. #Friday. #That is all.



I can’t stop looking at this picture… so many questions….

Do any of these people look like dancers??

Is he wearing baggy pants because he’s doing flips and other wild dance moves??

Is he wearing huge sneaks because he’s doing flips and other wild dance moves??

Is that the same shirt from Numb??

Was he up all night in a scraggy basement trying to escape from a serial killer??

okay, I guess that’s 5 questions 😆

What do you guys think??


Ways to help #Orion chart:

  1. Pre-order it now! (if you haven’t already… that helps a lot, apparently)
  2. Or on Friday, buy it, gift it, buy it again!
  3. When you do buy it, give it a star rating (5/5 ‘natch) and glowing review (turns out, those do count)
  4. Share it or even just mention it all over the place on social media (Billboard actually counts that too, along with YouTube views)… but try not to be obnoxious about it, which has the opposite effect (learned that the hard way, lol)
  5. Like & RT any media that plug #Orion… they keep track of these things
  6. Keep double-streaming #UpAllNight on Spotify or whatever streaming service you use (instructions here)
  7. Buy & gift it some more

I am certainly no expert, so if you know any other tips, please put them in the comments!


Is this not the greatest IG comment in the history of comments? 🙂

    Yes to everything. I L.O.V.E. how your mind works!!!!

  2. Grammyj says:

    You are a super Fan! You do more promo for David for Orion than his new PR person. Thanks for this fan-site. (Hopefully more promo is coming from David and his team).

    • TOfan says:

      aww thanks, Grammyj… I don’t go all hard-core promo for everything he does but I legitimately fell in love with UAN and more peeps need to hear it! (And I also have Say Me stuck in my head, so I’m basically excited for the whole EP!)

      Plus, David clearly doesn’t have as many hard-core fans as he used to but I figure if we work together, we can do great things… you may say I’m a dreameeerrrrrrr 🙂

  3. Jo says:

    I guess those pants aren’t too baggy. At least I can’t see the outline of his underwear in them LOL. Excited to see the new video and buy the new music!!! Streaming 24/7 on Spotify. Thanks for showing me how. 🙂

  4. mlpb3 says:

    David just posted a snippet of the UAN video on Instagram 🙌

  5. peppertara says:

    From the snippet David shared looks like a fun video. Guess the clothes are casual as is the video, looking forward to it! From the picture he posted I thought this must be the family that took him in! (although I do like your ponderings TOfan “Is he wearing baggy pants because he’s doing flips and other wild dance moves?? Is he wearing huge sneaks because he’s doing flips and other wild dance moves?? . Haha.
    Thanks for all the reminders re promo. 🙂

    This is a long story but really worth reading…

    It’s about XL, Adele’s label, and they sound awesome, not taking on too many artists so that they can do right by the ones they have, love this quote:

    “To do a record label well is so similar to being an artist,” Russell told me. “You have to be bloody-minded, and you have to be awkward. You have to be, like, ‘I’m doing it like this.’ It doesn’t matter what everyone’s saying it should be like. Every artist you’ve ever loved has done that.”


  7. TOfan says:

    Great quotes from David… “the ‘Up All Night’ singer” … love it! 🙂


    “I know I’m sappy, but I think it would be nice to put more emphasis on the good talent … it’s not just we’re going to make fun of you, that always hurts me to watch,” the “Up All Night” singer, 26, shared. “I think it’s super sad, playing with people’s emotions. I think Idol could do without it. They can get millions of people watching without having to humiliate people.”

    Archuleta added that he’s also excited for Katy Perry to judge contestants. David is excited to start his touring on June 1st for his new EP Orion. “I felt really unsure of myself and depressed for a while, but I learned to come trust my own voice and I wanted to share that message with my fans.” Archuleta tells Us

    “I love Katy, she’s always honest. She’s nice, but speaks her mind,” he told Us. “I think people will feel refreshed hearing from her. I think that’s why Idol worked because Simon [Cowell] was so brutally honest.”

    I’ll stop spamming myself just wanted to share that my pre-order just downloaded and aslkdflakjfkajflkajfjafakfj… here’s a quick recap:

    – bawled like a baby for Say Me so of course I had to listen to it again
    – and again
    – held my breath until Invincible started and OMG EVEN BETTER THAN I EXPECTED! I had hoped it would build into a David-ish anthem and YES!!!!! PUNCH THE AIR!!!! YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE INVINCIBLE!!!!

    I will admit to getting the urge to turn down the background music a tad at times so I could hear more of that glorious voice but details, details… love love LOVE THIS WHOLE EP! SO MANY AMAZING SONGS!!!!

    So proud of our D. So proud. *sobs again*

    So what did you guys think??????

  9. peppertara says:

    Yes, yes and yes! Love David’s EP, he should feel proud. All the songs are so good. Say Me is just so beautiful and moving, love Invincible, stellar song! Numb and UAN are such terrific songs. The whole EP is a winner! Great job David.

  10. Grammyj says:

    The UAN video is up https://youtu.be/2bppv5wy4mY

    It is way better than I expected! David is dancing!!! The story line is great and at the end David invites all viewers to subscribe to his you-tube channel.

  11. Grammyj says:

    Behind the scenes video for UAN

    At the end David says there will be more videos to come!

  12. oliveoil says:

    O M G !!!!!!!!!!! The video is soooooo amazing. !!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE it !!!! And David can REALLY DANCE !!!!!!!!!

  13. mlpb3 says:

    Video was shared by a fan. It is still unlisted so I’ll wait for David. The video page says “This video is unlisted. Be considerate and think twice before sharing.”

    • Grammyj says:

      I didn’t see any warning when I played it. Not sure why it would matter. It’s counting the views. Not sure why David hasn’t released it yet unless he’s waiting for Twitter to be up. What a time for it to be down.

      • Grammyj says:

        Where is David? The video link is being shared all over so it’s too late now. I’m sure he will just post it to his social media. Not sure why he hasn’t yet.

  14. oliveoil says:

    Didn’t know that. Definitely will wait till official release to share 🙂

  15. TOfan says:




    LOVE THIS!!!!!

    So can we share this baby yet???????

  16. peppertara says:

    What a wonderful video!! Way to go David…..and all that dancing, love it! When I first watched it I thought….that guy is a good dancer, looks like David, lol. Then I realized it was David, so good and so much fun. The guy can move! Really nice message and feeling in the video for such a great song…yep…probably his best. Maybe he’ll do some of that dancing in his concerts. 🙂

  17. David dancing, amazing like a shooting star! I have waited years for him to dance with all the musicality I knew was there. Now let there be so much more. I could watch him dance for a very long time.
