FRENCH MONTANA AND DRAKE RELEASE “NO STYLIST” NEW YORK INSPIRED SINGLE CELEBRATING RULE BREAKERS IN FASHION AND HIP-HOP

COLOSSAL “NO STYLIST” MUSIC VIDEO PREMIERES SEPTEMBER 28

 THIRD HIGHLY ANTICIPATED ALBUM COMING SOON

 

(September 21, 2018 – Los Angeles, CA) – Igniting his next chapter with a bang, French Montana releases not one, but three brand new songs today. The GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum producer, rapper, influencer, and philanthropist teases new highly anticipated album with three new tracks led by the title track and first single No Stylist” [feat. Drake] as well as “Nervous” and “Juice.” 

 

Get it HERE via Coke Boys Music/Bad Boy Entertainment/Epic Records.

 

Shimmering synths and a beat-thumping underscore the hypnotic and high-fashion No Stylist, which celebrates leaders and rule breakers who have broken barriers in fashion and hip hop throughout the years. Meanwhile, French’s inimitable cadence bobs and weaves towards a falsetto chant, “Iced out, no stylist.” Capitalizing on longstanding and explosive chemistry, Drake turns up with a fiery cameo of his own that scorches on impact with each bar.

 

Additionally, the rappers returned to the Big Apple in order to shoot the song’s cinematic music video on French’s home turf. A few legendary surprise guests make appearances—including Dapper DanSlick RickCam’ron and more to be revealed soon. The music video officially premieres on Friday September 28, 2018.

 

Maintaining that energy, “Nervous” and “Juice” both showcase the MC in top form, delivering one vibrant verse and hard-hitting hook after another. All three anthems set the stage for the 2019 release of his anxiously awaited third full-length and follow-up to 2017’s chart-topping and gold-certified, JUNGLE RULES. He hinted at more to big things on the horizon when gracing a recent cover of Billboard. Check it out HERE.

 

French Montana season is upon us…

 

     

 

Some artists blur genres, but French Montana blurs borders. His inimitable fusion of classic East Coast rhymes, wavy pop swagger, and international ambition elevated him to the forefront of the game on a global scale. 2017 saw him ascend to superstar status with the blockbuster smash “UNFORGETTABLE” [feat. Swae Lee], which cemented him in the “Billion Club” for streaming and earned a quintuple-platinum certification from the RIAA. Meanwhile, his sophomore effort, JUNGLE RULES, went gold and dominated the charts. At the same time, he has left an indelible mark on communities around the globe. In addition to becoming the very first rap ambassador of Global Citizen, he staunchly supported humanitarian efforts, spanning DACA, the viral Mama Hope #UNFORGETTABLE Dance Challenge, which raised over $500,000-plus, and his Pan-African health and education movement into Morocco with Care Morocco. 2018 also saw him become a U.S. Citizen after emigrating to the South Bronx from Morocco at just 13-years-old.

 

If anyone can not only change music, but the world at large, it’s French Montana.

LEGENDARY GLOBAL ICON MARIAH CAREY RETURNS WITH NEW MUSIC

SHARES NEW SONG “GTFO” AVAILABLE NOW

NEW SINGLE “WITH YOU” COMING IN EARLY OCTOBER

BOTH TRACKS FROM NEW STUDIO ALBUM OUT LATER THIS YEAR

(September 13, 2018 – Los Angeles, CA) – Today, incomparable, multi-platinum, multiple Grammy award winning global superstar Mariah Carey (the best-selling female artist of all time with 18 Hot 100 #1 hits) returns with the first taste of her new music, “GTFO,” available worldwide now. Get it HERE via Epic Records!

 

The new song is a tempting first helping from her upcoming new album, due out later this year, whetting fans’ appetites for the album’s stunning kickoff single, “With You,” scheduled for an October 5 release. Both tracks are from her upcoming 15th studio album, her first studio album since 2014. “GTFO” is produced by Grammy nominated/multiple ASCAP award winner Nineteen85, who has worked with Drake and Jordan Manswell (Daniel Caesar), among others. An early treat for fans, atmospheric beats abound on the new track, with Mariah finding even more nuance in her seamlessly-spun vocal repertoire, her velvety, middle-range virtuosity once again dazzling in breathy hues. The sultry track is the first serving of new music from the acclaimed singer/songwriter/producer since inking an exclusive partnership with her imprint Butterfly MC Records and Epic in the spring of 2017. Mariah will share the music video for the new song tomorrow, September 14. The clip is directed by Sarah McColgan (Kelly Clarkson, Charli XCX). Her official single, “With You,” which arrives on October 5, seductively sets the stage for Mariah’s eagerly anticipated album coming later in 2018.

 

The announcement of the new songs, coming on the heels of her much-heralded Las Vegas Residency, ‘The Butterfly Returns,’ marks the impassioned return of one of the most revered and identifiable voices in pop history. She’s also putting the finishing touches on her forthcoming album. The flurry of creative activity has turned up the buzz with her enormous social media following, heightening the unbreakable rapport between the personable star and her avid fan base which she affectionately refers to as her ‘lambily.’ “I wanted to give my fans and everyone a first listen that wasn’t so serious,” says Mariah. “I’ve had so much fun making this album, and I wanted the first moment to reflect that light-hearted spirit.”

 

Mariah’s enthusiasm extends to her recent live endeavors. The multitalented star finished up her Caesar’s Palace residency on September 10 to rave reviews, and will be performing at the eighth annual iHeartRadio Music Festival at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena on September 21. A range of unique promotional ventures are in the works for fall, surrounding the October 5 “With You” release and subsequent video, with more surprises in store for fans to close out the year. Mariah has also announced plans to continue ‘The Butterfly Returns’ headlining show at the Colosseum in Caesar’s Palace in February of 2019.

 

Exhibiting a transcendent vocal ability, irrepressible staying power and unparalleled body of work that only a handful of artists in the modern era have achieved, Mariah Carey is poised to deliver via Epic Records/Butterfly MC Records one of the most accomplished albums of her incredible career.

EPIC RECORDS SIGNS LEGENDARY HIP HOP TRAILBLAZER TIP “T.I.” HARRIS

T.I. SHARES TWO BRAND-NEW TRACKS: “JEFE” FT. MEEK MILL AND “WRAITH” FT. YO GOTI 

NEW ALBUM DIME TRAP COMING SOON

(September 7, 2018 – Atlanta, GA) Today, Epic Records is proud to announce the signing of multi-platinum, multi-Grammy Award-winning artist/producer/actor/entrepreneur Tip “T.I.” Harris. Along with the label signing, T.I. has shared his first taste of new music with two brand-new tracks, available today at all DSPs: “Jefe (featuring Meek Mill)” and “Wraith (featuring Yo Goti).” T.I. is set to release his eagerly anticipated 10THstudio album and first full-length in four years, Dime Trap, later in 2018. Get “Jefe” HERE and “Wraith” HERE via Epic Records/Grand Hustle!

 

Universally recognized as a visionary and groundbreaking entrepreneur—one who led the explosion of southern hip hop music and, specifically, trap, to a mainstream breakthrough–both new songs capture the magnetic rapper at the top of his game; ‘While you were getting going I was getting to it..’ he schools in wicked wisps of wordplay on the mesmerizing “Wraith,” while the hallucinatory “Jefe” overflows with verse and crossbred backing track, including wobblily Spanish horns.

 

Marking 15 years since he released his breakthrough album Trap Muzik, (which helped launch the popular hip hop subgenre), Dime Trap will be the multi-talented artist’s 10th album and truly brings his career full circle. An acclaimed innovator with millions of albums sold and more than 35 million singles, T.I. has been awarded 3 Grammy Awards, 11 Billboard Awards, 3 BET Awards, 2 American Music Awards and more through the years.  Viewed as a seamless collaborator whose prolific musical pairings with seminal superstars include Drake, Beyoncé, Pharrell, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Robin Thicke, M.I.A., Lady Gaga, and others, his recent politically-charged collaboration with Kanye West on “Ye Vs. The People” is also garnering raves. T.I.’s decade-and-a-half stewardship of Grand Hustle Records has produced multiple breakout artists, including Iggy Azalea, Travis Scott, and others, and his purpose-driven 2016 EP Us Or Else courageously addressed police brutality and racial inequality in America, hailed by Rolling Stone as another crucial ‘point on the timeline of the rapper’s growing social conscious.’

 

T.I.’s unique perspective and unwavering perseverance throughout the seismic changes of pop culture has seen him expand his Atlanta based Grand Hustle empire into a diverse conglomerate of brands and entities.  His successful forays into music, film, fashion, books, scripted and unscripted television, technology, sports, lifestyle and real estate ventures have garnered him worldwide acclaim as a multi-platform catalyst behind some of the entertainment industry’s most compelling endeavors. Most recently, he’s locked down deals as an artist/co-owner of the global stream service TIDAL, and co-creator, producer and star of the new BET reality completion series “The Grand Hustle,” where T.I. oversees 16 business-minded participants competing for a six-figure salary and the chance to join his coveted empire. Earlier this summer, T.I. reprised his role in the Marvel sequel “Antman & The Wasp, which has grossed close to $600 million world-wide at the box office, and co-produced the musical drama “Glow Up” as part of the PepsiCo’s Creators League. He has also taken his musical talents to Broadway, having recently received a TONY Award nomination for “Best Original Score (Music and/or Lyrics) Written for the Theatre” for SpongeBob Square Pants: The Musical.

 

Also widely recognized for his influence in the community, T.I. has become an activist and dominant force in social issues around race relations, civil and human rights. In response to mass inequality and the murders of unarmed Black citizens, T.I. began his Us or Else movement where he penned a thought-provoking series of op-Eds in the New York TimesWashington Post and Huffington Post, a socially charged album entitled Us or Else: Letter to the System, followed by a provocative short film. Using that as a platform, T.I. launched a formal charitable, social justice and philanthropic arm, Harris Community Works, dedicated to driving systemic change in underserved communities. His most recent philanthropic work includes relief and support efforts for Puerto Rico, Houston, Colin Kaepernick’s Million Dollar Challenge and more. Recently, T.I. became a coveted member of the Mayor of Atlanta’s Transition Team. In this role, he will support the Mayor and City of Atlanta in policy and advocacy efforts that drive the city of Atlanta forward.

 

Now, with his Epic Records partnership on course and his new album Dime Trap about to be released, the fearless game-changer is once again taking his always-evolving artistic franchise to new heights.
