CAMILA CABELLO UNVEILS DEBUT SINGLE AND VIDEO “CRYING IN THE CLUB”

(May 19, 2017 — Los Angeles, CA) — Multiplatinum award-winning singer and songwriter Camila Cabello shares her much-anticipated debut single “Crying in the Club” today via Epic Records/SYCO. Hear it HERE and watch the video on VEVO HERE. “Crying in the Club” is the first release from her upcoming debut solo album The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving. After revealing the album title on social media this past weekend, Camila explained, “The hurting, The healing, The loving’ is the story of my journey from darkness into light, from a time when I was lost to a time when I found myself again.”

Camila co-wrote “Crying in the Club” with Sia and it was produced by Benny Blanco (Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran). Driven by her powerhouse voice and irresistible charisma, “Crying in the Club” sports a hashtag-worthy hook “crying in the club.” Not only is it bound to be one of the summer’s biggest songs, but it also introduces this multi-talented artist’s next chapter. Top listeners on Spotify during the first week of release will be rewarded with an exclusive Camila t-shirt.

On Sunday, May 21, Camila takes the stage at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas for her television debut performance of “Crying in the Club” live from the T-Mobile Arena at 8:00pm ET/5:00pm PT on ABC. In addition, Camila will perform a special encore of another new song “I Have Questions” along with exclusive content and behind-the-scenes for Comcast Xfinity X1 users, immediately following the live broadcast of the Billboard Awards. “I Have Questions” will be available globally at 12:00pm PT on May 21st.

“Crying in the Club” arrives hot on the heels of “Bad Things”—Camila’s #1 double platinum-certified smash collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly. Among many accolades, “Bad Things” claimed #1 at Top 40 radio, generated over 240 million Spotify streams, garnered a platinum plaque, and received “Best Collaboration” at the Radio Disney Music Awards. It also set the stage for her upcoming solo record.

Camila spent the first part of 2017 quietly working on what has become her new album. Devoted to every detail, she wrote or co-wrote each song, collaborating closely with a bevy of heavy hitters such as Pharrell, Frank Dukes, Charli XCX, Ryan Tedder, MXM, Diplo, Benny Blanco, Sia, Stargate and more. As a result, the music tells her story like never before, inviting fans closer than ever and showcasing her spirit as an artist.

During an interview with Newsweek, Ryan Tedder recently declared, “She’s not only an incredible singer, but she’s also the most talented young artist I think I’ve worked with in songwriting in the longest time.” Diplo described her as “amazing.” Of working with her, Charli XCX proclaimed, “Honestly I was floored.” Meanwhile, Shawn Mendes put it best calling her, “The best female vocalist ever.”

In 2015, Camila teamed up with Shawn Mendes for the platinum-certified duet, “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” which reached 10 at pop radio and hit #20 on The Hot 100 chart. Camila is currently featured on J Balvin and Pitbull’s “Hey Ma” from the worldwide hit film Fate of the Furious and its chart-topping soundtrack. The trio delivered an explosive performance of “Hey Ma” at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards. Beginning her solo career after four years in Fifth Harmony, she had earned a veritable smash in the form of “Bad Things” with MGK. As a result of its success, she became “the first female artist to hit #1 on Top 40 Radio with and without a group.” Camila and MGK gave show-stopping performances on Ellen, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. She also graced the cover of Seventeen Magazine, Billboard, and Latina in addition landing on Time‘s “The 25 Most Influential Teens of 2016.” Camila has earned four top 20 songs on The Hot 100 chart – two with the group and two as a solo artist.

J HUS RELEASES DEBUT ALBUM TODAY VIA BLACK BUTTER RECORDS / EPIC RECORDS

(MAY 12, 2017 – NEW YORK, NY) Today marks the release of COMMON SENSE, the debut album by J Hus via Black Butter Records. A diverse body of work, the album features tracks with Burna Boy, MIST, MoStack and Tiggs Da Author. Full track listing below. The title track from the album was recently premiered via MistaJam as his ‘Hottest Record’ and its already blowing up a storm.

New track “Common Sense”, co-produced with The Compozers and Mark Crown of Rudimental features live drums as a self-assured Hus starts as he means to go on. “I wanted to start the album very confidently, 100%. People often think of me as a singer, and I wanted to reaffirm myself as a rapper. I’ve got bars!” As for the title of the album and Hus’s answer is similarly self-assured. “It’s common sense to listen to J Hus,” he laughs, “Why would you listen to anything else?”

Boasting an ebullient blend of Dancehall, Afrobeat, Grime, Rap, Garage and R&B, ‘Common Sense’ is a musical revelation, an emotional rollercoaster ride into the inner musings of an inner-city musician. As well as his signature sound – some say UK Afrobeats, others AfroGrime – there are nods to others influences too. Production over the entire album comes from Hus and long-term collaborator JAE5, with additional production on select tracks by Tiggs, Show & Prove, The Compozers, Mark Crown, TSB and iO.

His explosive first single “Did You See” (Top 15 Official Charts, Radio 1 A-List) has already clocked upwards of 12m views on Youtube thanks to the ridiculously popular, meme-worthy refrain, ‘Did you see what I done? I came in the black Benz, left in the white one’. Boasting African inflections and Jamaican patterns, the melody-heavy bounce picks up where 15th Day left off. Bouff Daddy is a similarly straight-up Afrobeats banger, as Hus leans and bops over JAE5’s playful beat. “In my area, bouff means money, so whenever I go back to my area, everyone’s like ‘the bouff man, the bouff Daddy’,” explains Hus of the title. “A lot of the words I use, people might not know what they mean, so you have to listen to the music to catch on, to work it out. To me, it’s normal, it’s just how we’ve always spoken in east London.”

The love-soaked Closed Doors features sax and piano. “I could be talking the most mad crud, but when you have live instruments it just makes me more emotional. I don’t know why, it’s mad,” Hus points out. “I feel more spiritual; I really feel the music.” The track ruminates on Hus’s prowess with women – I’m a bad-man lipser, he brags.

Clartin’ is the album’s angry moment as Hus takes on the haters; Plottin’ takes the tempo all the way up as JAE5 delivers a shimmery summer anthem that harks back to the late nineties. “I wanted that UKG sound. At that moment in time I was thinking about the Streets. I was really into him, very influenced by him, so I wanted something that sounded like Original Pirate Material. I liked that he didn’t really care – the way he rapped was like he was just speaking to the listener. I saw that as so sick.” The mischievous Like Your Style was inspired by a trip to Ireland and features Hus’s attempt at the Dublin brogue – ‘What’s the craic, what’s the storehh’. “It’s very cheeky, that one, but you know the girls in Ireland are crazy, man. There’s something about that place that gave me so much inspiration, even though I’ve only been once.” An album highlight sees Hus team up with Burna Boy on the upbeat Good Time. The pair met first in Nigeria, before teaming up at a London studio when Burna was in town. “Burna Boy is a wavy, wavy, wavy artist from Nigeria, he’s very big out there,” Hus explains. “He’s a cool brudda. I’ve been a fan of him for a very long time. And he’s very cool when I’ve met him. He’s a proper guy.”

On Spirit, Hus digs deeper into himself to discuss his past life when he took the path less righteous. ‘They can take away my freedom, they can’t take my spirit,’ he sings of his time spent in prison back in 2015. “When I was inside, I used to listen to a lot of radio. I thought if I could make a tune that would go on radio that could then be heard in prison, then I could almost talk to myself, myself in prison. I wanted a song that could really resonate with people in that situation. So if any of my tunes get played on radio, it’s great, but if that one gets played on radio then I’m going to be so happy. I made this one to try to keep everyone’s head up. It’s a purely positive message.”

In March, Walker received the prestigious honor of being named Elvis Duran’s “Artist of the Month” on NBC’s Today Show.

By 2016, the troubadour uncovered his own sound through layering rap-style production, electronic shine, and traditional acoustic power fueled by dynamic powerhouse pipes. As songs such as “Fly Away With Me” took off, Walker earned the praise of Pigeons & Planes, Clash, Sunday Times, BBC Radio 1, BBC 1Xtra, Beats 1, Earmilk, Complex UK, Source UK, Eargasm, and more. Simultaneously, he’s enchanted crowds on tour alongside the likes of Gallant, Jake Bugg, and more in addition to selling out a run of dates in early 2017.

SOLIDIFIES SUCCESSFUL LONG-TERM PARTNERSHIP WITH LA REID AND MARIAH

NEW STUDIO ALBUM FROM MARIAH EXPECTED LATER THIS YEAR

(April 10, 2017 – Los Angeles, CA) – Multi-platinum global superstar Mariah Carey, the best-selling female artist of all time with 18 Hot 100 #1 hits, inks an exclusive joint partnership of Butterfly MC Records and Epic Records, a division of Sony Music Enter­tainment, it was announced today by LA Reid, Chair­man and CEO, Epic Records. Terms of the agree­ment call for additional repertoire by the artist, beginning with a new studio album expected later this year.

“To continue working with Mariah Carey at Epic has been another rewarding chapter of my career,” said Mr. Reid. “Mariah’s incomparable talents as a singer, with her vocal range that is nothing short of legendary, are matched by her brilliance as a songwriter, producer, and performer par excellence. Mariah’s chart records have established her enduring place in music history, a position that is cherished and supported by her loyal fans worldwide.

“I am putting my heart and soul into making more new music,” said Mariah. “I am so thrilled for this next chapter and to continue working with, and for, everyone that I love.”

Today’s announcement effectively extends the successful long-term association between Epic and Mariah, who was personally signed to the label by LA Reid in 2015. Mariah enjoyed a career-high 2016 that included a sold-out international tour (The Sweet Sweet Fantasy Tour), a hit docu-series (Mariah’s World on E!), a history-making partnership with MAC Cosmetics, a critically-acclaimed Vegas residency (Mariah Carey #1’s at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace), and numerous guest appearances in film and tv. Mariah is set to return to her Las Vegas residency in July and will embark on a North American summer tour with Lionel Richie.

Mariah’s hitmaking career began at Sony Music in with her astounding first five consecutive Hot 100 #1 hits of 1990-91: “Vision of Love,” “Love Takes Time,” “Someday,” “I Don’t Wanna Cry,” and “Emotions.” The quintet kicked off her most recent album, #1 To Infinity (released 2015, on Epic Records / Columbia Records / Sony Legacy), the first career-spanning chrono­logical collection to gather all 18 of her Billboard Hot 100 #1 singles (17 self-penned). That list went on to include “We Belong Together” (#1 for 14 weeks), “Don’t Forget About Us,” and “Touch My Body,” to name a few.

About Mariah Carey:

FRENCH MONTANA LAUNCHES TWO NEW SONGS “UNFORGETTABLE” & “NO PRESSURE”

(April 7, 2017 – New York, NY) – Coke Boys Music / Bad Boy Entertainment / Epic Records’ Grammy nominated, worldwide platinum-selling hip-hop icon, and philanthro­pist French Montana launches two new hit songs “Unforgettable (feat Swae Lee)” and “No Pressure (feat Future)” now available on all streaming platforms.

French found the inspiration for his upcoming “Unforgettable” music video after watching a dance video of Uganda’s Triplets Ghetto Kids on Youtube. The kids’ joyous street dancing inspired French to travel to his motherland of Africa to witness their moves up close and personal. While there, he was completely moved and energized by them as they showed him around their village, reminding him of his childhood growing up in Morocco, North Africa before he moved to New York with his family at the age of 13.

The poignant return to his motherland in Africa is underscored by French’s strong connec­tion to the Triplets Ghetto Kids, and to the emotional crowds of Kampala locals who embraced him on his journey. The pure joy they take in their music and dancing transcends the extreme poverty of the region. The entire project, now the subject of a deeply uplifting documentary film as well, also pays homage to French’s parents, who’s wedding day photo­graph in Morocco graces the “Unforgettable” track cover artwork.

French Montana is one of the most prolific and instantly recognizable players in the game today – with some 300 lead and feature appearances on singles, album and mix­tape tracks and videos. His signing to the new Bad Boy Entertainment/Epic Records part­ner­ship was jointly announced by Mr. L.A. Reid and Bad Boy founder Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs. French Montana is managed by SAL&CO/Maverick.

FUTURE COVERS BILLBOARD!!

Atlanta Rap Hero Future on Making Chart History and Kicking It With ‘Superstar Females’

The Atlanta rap god Future, like other gods before him, is known by many names. He was born Nayvadius Wilburn into a family of street hustlers going back at least two ­generations. As a kid he picked up the ­moniker Meathead, both for his oversize dome and, later, his general gangster ­toughness. When he began rapping in his teens at his cousin Rico Wade’s Dungeon studio — where OutKast was busy ­reinventing hip-hop — he was given the name Future (as in “the future of music,” which is kind of ­mind-blowing, coming from a place making tunes like “So Fresh, So Clean”). And to his friends he’s mostly known as Pluto, which is all at once the title of his 2012 major-label debut, a metaphor for ­getting supremely high and a symbol of the scale of his ambitions. “I’m the astronaut kid,” he says, impassive behind a pair of ever-present sunglasses. “At the end of the day, I’m out of here — above anything.”

The previous week, Future had surprised fans with the self-titled album (his sixth, not counting the hit packed mixtapes he has released through his own Freebandz label), which landed at No. 1, becoming his fourth consecutive album to do so. Then, in a move unprecedented in chart history, HNDRXX arrived just seven days later and replaced Future in the top spot. (Epic Records says the two albums will also be combined into a ­physical release later this year.) Future’s clearly pleased with the success but insists that he ­values authenticity more than ­numbers. “If I’m the biggest artist in the world, cool, but I want to just be me,” he says. “I want my money to be different. I’m not trying to have rapper money. My goal is to be able to get everything from the world that I can get.”

RICK ROSS RELEASES NINTH ALBUM RATHER YOU THAN ME IN STORES TODAY

(March 17, 2017 – Los Angeles, CA) – Building on months of widespread excitement and anticipation, four-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum rap icon and Maybach Music Group mastermind Rick Ross unleashes his ninth full-length album and first for Epic Records, Rather You Than Me [MMG/Epic Records] today. Get it HERE. As soon as the 14-track offering became available at midnight, the record seized #1 on the Top Hip-Hop/Rap Chart and #2 on iTunes Overall.

It’s been a banner week for the artist. Last night, the multitalented icon hosted and performed at the MTV Woodie Awards broadcasted live from SXSW in Austin, TX on MTV. Throughout the proceedings, the MC kept the audience laughing and smiling with his undeniable presence, and he trended online in the process. As soon as the festivities came to a close with rousing applause and cheers, MTV exclusively world-premiered the music video for the Rather You Than Me’s latest single “Trap Trap Trap” [feat. Young Thug & Wale].

With its bulletproof bars from Ross, Wale‘s airtight rhymes, and spacey flows courtesy of Young Thug, “Trap Trap Trap” quickly racked up 1 million Spotify streams. Featured on both Spotify’s Rap Caviar and VEVO, the music video sees the three rappers flexing their signature styles and inimitable bravado in another explosive big screen-worthy narrative you have to see to believe. Watch it HERE.

Rather You Than Me represents the apex of the rapper’s catalog thus far. There are moments of soulful emotion on the likes of “Apple of My Eye” [feat. Raphael Saadiq] and pure rap fireworks during “Powers That Be” [feat. Nas] and “Dead Presidents” [feat. Future, Jeezy, & Yo Gotti]. It holds quite a few surprises too including “Idols Become Rivals” [feat. Chris Rock] and the stunning “Maybach Music V” [feat. Dej Loaf]. See the whole tracklisting below.

Now, Rather You Than Me marks the beginning of a new era for Rick Ross and rap music.

“Untouchable” is the best way to describe Rick Ross’s decade-plus run at the top of rap. Along the way, he achieved five Billboard Top 200 #1 debuts and three #2 debuts, received four Grammy Award® nominations, graced the cover of Rolling Stone twice, and made history more than once. His debut single “Hustlin’” became the “first mastertone ever certified RIAA platinum before the associated album had been released.” He sold millions of singles and albums and cemented his status as one of rap’s biggest and brashest voices. Moreover, he founded Maybach Music Group home to Meek Mill, Wale, and more. Signing to Epic Records in 2016, his “untouchable” streak continues with Rather You Than Me.

JENNIFER HUDSON TO PREMIERE NEW SINGLE “REMEMBER ME”

(March 3, 2017– New York, NY) Multi-platinum Oscar and Grammy Award®-winning global superstar, Jennifer Hudson, will premiere “Remember Me,” her brand new single on Epic Records, this Sunday night, March 5th, on ITV’s top-rated The Voice UK, where she is currently in her first season as a coach. “Remember Me” is available now at all digital and streaming platforms worldwide. Stay tuned for news on the “Remember Me” video.

Underscoring Jennifer’s special connection to “Remember Me” is the fact that she co-wrote the track with Jamie Hartman, co-writer of Rag’n’Bone Man’s worldwide multi-platinum #1 smash, “Human,” one of Sony Music’s biggest global hits of the past year.

“Remember Me” is the lead single from Jennifer’s upcoming Epic Records debut album (her fourth career album), which she is completing with LA Reid, Chairman, Epic Records and executive producer Clive Davis, Chief Creative Officer, Sony Music Entertainment.

“As an artist, when I discover music that I connect with deeply, it brings me a sense of excitement that I can’t put into words,” said Ms. Hudson. “That’s how I feel about “Remember Me”. Everything about it is special – from co-writing it with Jamie, to the recording process, to how it made me feel along the way. I just can’t wait to share it with the world.”

“Jennifer Hudson is the defining voice of this generation,” said Mr. Reid when he announced her signing to Epic last year. “Her award-winning presence on records, in film, and on stage, establishes her as one of the premier artists to emerge in this century. I’m enjoying collaborating with my friend and mentor Clive Davis on Jennifer’s first Epic album and excited for her fans to hear what we’re up to.”

“I signed Jennifer in 2007,” said Mr. Davis, “believing her to be the strongest candidate as the next generation’s Aretha Franklin and Whitney Houston. She has become that, as LA and I excitingly reunite to capture Jennifer at her all time best.”

Jennifer’s “I Will Always Love You” live tribute to Whitney Houston at the 54th annual Grammy Awards® in 2012 (the day after Whitney’s death) was an iconic moment; view performance HERE. Jennifer’s live tribute to Prince also gave the June 2016 BET Awards ceremony its climactic moment, as she sang “Purple Rain” in front of an orchestra led by Stevie Wonder on keyboards and guitarist Tori Kelly. Adding to the occasion, Ms. Hudson was wearing the same memorable white hooded tunic worn by Prince the last time he was at the awards spectacular. View Jennifer’s BET Awards performance HERE.

In under a year, he achieved three back-to-back #1 albums on the Billboard Top 200—the platinum DS2, platinum What A Time To Be Alive with Drake, and EVOL. His catalog encompasses double-platinum smashes such as “Low Life” [feat. The Weeknd] and “Where Ya At” [feat. Drake], platinum hits “Stick Talk,” “F*ck Up Some Commas,” and “Turn On The Lights,” and has amassed over 1 billion streams worldwide. Future infiltrated the mainstream performing on Saturday Night Live, Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and more in addition to gracing the cover of Rolling Stone, GQ, XXL, Spin, and many others. In 2017, he goes full Beast Mode yet again, continuing his unbeatable record.

JIDENNA’S MUCH-ANTICIPATED FULL-LENGTH DEBUT ALBUM THE CHIEF ARRIVES IN STORES AND ONLINE TODAY

(February 17, 2016 – Los Angeles, CA) – GRAMMY® Award-nominated rapper, singer, producer, and artist Jidenna unleashes his anxiously awaited full-length debut album, The Chief [Wondaland Records/Epic Records], today. Get it HERE.

Over the course of 14 tracks, Jidenna blurs the lines between genres, cultures, and creeds as he integrates styles into an immersive, intelligent, and inimitable tribalized hip-hop hybrid. Boasting fan favorites such as the simmering new single “Bambi,” which XXL dubbed, “the most interesting song you’ll hear in the next 12 months,” the raucous “Long Live The Chief,” and swaggering “Little Bit More,” the album illuminates the extent of his musical arsenal. Press remains under his spell as Stereogum exalted The Chief as “Album of the Week” and The New York Times wrote, “From the beginning, Jidenna is defying categorization at every turn; his musical range is impressive and thoughtful.” The Chief also boasts guest features from Wondaland visionary Janelle Monáe, St. Beauty, and Nana Kwabena on the anthem “Safari.”
Just yesterday, this multi-talented maverick dropped the cinematic video for “The Let Out” [feat. Quavo]. The track sees Jidenna carry honest and hypnotic bars over an airy soundscape from Nana Kwabena a longtime collaborator and the Ghanian producer behind his double-platinum “Classic Man” [feat. Roman GianArthur]. The clip offers a “night in the life of” narrative as our hero heads to “The Let Out.” Rolling Stone, Billboard, and more have featured the video.
Watch it HERE.
On Monday February 20, Jidenna guests on The Real where he’ll be discussing The Chief in detail with the hosts. Be sure to tune in.
The Chief has finally arrived.
Get The Chief

“At the front of that charge is J Hus, who just released his impressive debut album, “Common Sense,” which uses grime as a steppingstone for a sound that is truly transcontinental, encompassing American hip-hop and West African pop..”

-THE NEW YORK TIMES

“On His Debut Album ‘Common Sense’, J Hus Connects The Streets With African Hall Parties.”

-COMPLEX

“No one sounds like J Hus. The title track of his forthcoming album, Common Sense, is so seriously good we’re bouncing in anticipation for the rest.”
