DJ KHALED’S GRATEFUL BOWS AT #1 ON THE BILLBOARD TOP 200

(Los Angeles, CA – July 5, 2017) Taking the crown yet again, GRAMMY® nominated, multi-platinum artist, producer, entrepreneur, author, and music guru DJ Khaled bows at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 with his tenth full-length offering, GRATEFUL [We The Best Music Group/Epic Records].

Get the album HERE!

Achieving 149,127 equivalent sales in total activity, this notably marks his biggest first-week at #1 Overall and #1 Hip-Hop, his second consecutive debut at the top of the chart in under twelve months’ time, and his seventh Top 10 entry overall since 2008.

It’s been an unbelievable journey to this milestone. Khaled took the first step on the road to GRATEFUL with his high-profile GRAMMY® press conference where he announced the impending release. That five-month journey culminates now as he clinched #1. Note, this is also his first #1 with infant son Asahd Tuck Khaled its Executive Producer.

Kicking off release week, he ignited the BET Awards with an unforgettable performance and starred in a hilarious Daily Show skit with Trevor Noah followed by a packed in-store at Urban Outfitters’ Space 15 Twenty the day the album dropped, and finally an appearance on ABC’s The Chew too. Watch it HERE!

Meanwhile, Apple Music, Spotify and Tidal dedicated widespread support on and off platforms. . Congrats to DJ Khaled, Asahd, We The Best, Roc Nation and Epic, for a #1 album yet again on the Billboard Top 200!

Sylvia Rhone, President of Epic Records states, “Grateful marks an incredible time in music as DJ Khaled continues to set the bar for creative excellence. His passion and work ethic are unparalleled and the impact that he has on culture is reflected as he claims the number 1 spot.”

Meanwhile, GRATEFUL has been a mainstay on multiple online charts. It’s consistently held #1 on Apple Music Overall and Hip-Hop/Rap. Moreover, the latest single “Wild Thoughts” [feat. Rihanna & Bryson Tiller] has taken off! Not only it a multi-format smash, but it surpassed 68 million Spotify streams in less than a month and moved to #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. Meanwhile, the platinum-certified “I’m The One” [feat. Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance The Rapper, & Lil Wayne] holds the #2 spot, giving Khaled two of the top three songs in the country!

Moreover, it has received mass critical praise. Entertainment Weekly wrote, “Khaled’s ability to summon music’s Avengers remains unrivaled,” and Rolling Stone affirmed, “Grateful has a guest list stronger than most award shows.”

Khaled introduced Grateful with one of music’s hottest hit streaks in recent memory. “I’m The One” became his first #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and achieved RIAA platinum status in less than six weeks and also landed #1 in United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand! Meanwhile, “Shining” [feat. BEYONCÉ & JAY-Z] simultaneously pinned down #1 at Urban and Rhythm Radio. “Wild Thoughts” stood out as the #1 Most Added at Top 40, Urban, and Rhythm upon impact, and it’s replicating the same crossover success of its predecessors and then some. Check out the full Grateful all-star tracklisting below.

At a closer look, you might find a subtle theme at the heart of Grateful. It released June 23, its executive producer and Asahd was born October 23, it boasts 23 tracks, and he just dropped a collaboration with the most famous 23 of all—Jordan. It’s a number with history behind it. That history expanded with Grateful.

The keys to the kingdom belong to Khaled and Asahd— the youngest album executive producer in history. It’s a year to be Grateful.

FRENCH MONTANA ANNOUNCES ANXIOUSLY AWAITED ALBUM “JUNGLE RULES” OUT JULY 14

(June 26, 2017 – Los Angeles,CA) – Red hot off a seismic BET Awards performance yesterday, French Montana shares the details for his highly anticipated second full-length album, “JUNGLE RULES” [Coke Boys Music/Bad Boy Entertainment/Epic Records]—arriving July 14, 2017. The GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum rap icon, influencer, and philanthropist excitedly uncovers the album cover. After first mentioning the big news at the end of his set, he immediately began trending all over social media!

The worldwide smash “Unforgettable” [feat. Swae Lee] not only stands out as a global phenomenon, but it also sets the tone for the new album as a whole. Between a heavenly hook from Swae Lee, he delivers confessional verses over an unpredictable tribal electro beat. Already his fastest Top 40 riser, the track just received an official RIAA platinum certification and has clocked over 158 million Spotify streams and 101 million YouTube/VEVO views after only 2 months since release.

Last night, he offered up a landmark performance of “Unforgettable.” After collaborating with YouTube sensation Uganda’s Triplets Ghetto Kids on the song’s video, he surprised the kids by flying them out to Los Angeles. He made their dreams come true introducing them to America and inviting them to accompany him during an historic show at the BET Awards. It brought the audience to its feet. Watch it HERE.

Earlier this month, French screened his riveting documentary Project: Unforgettable — “My Project, Their Reality” in front of tastemakers in New York. The heartfelt visual follows him to Uganda. He returns to the continent of his birth to track down YouTube Triplets Ghetto Kids after finding fascination in their videos. Along the way, he awakens with inspiration, witnessing the culture firsthand and undergoing a transformative experience that went on to define the album and yield the music video for “Unforgettable.” It’s as powerful as it is poignant.

Describing the documentary, Billboard put it best claiming, “His level of motivation is back at an all-time high.” The full length documentary will be released the week “JUNGLE RUGLES” arrives.

French is with his biggest, boldest, and best work to date. Moreover, he’ll be taking this new music on the road, announcing a series of international headline gigs and dates supporting The Weeknd on the Starboy Tour. Check out the full itinerary below.

NYC DUO SECRET WEAPONS RETURN WITH NEW SINGLE “GHOST”

LOS ANGELES, CA – June 23, 2017 – Critically acclaimed Brooklyn duo SECRET WEAPONS share their new single “Ghost” today. The song is the first release from the group’s anxiously awaited full-length debut, As The Setting Sun Comes Crashing Down On Me [Epic Records]—coming soon.

Get “Ghost” HERE.

Once again, the twosome—Gerry Lange and Dan Rocco—strike a delicate balance between alternative energy and subtle pop melodies on the elegantly hypnotic track. It’s the perfect mix of artful production and entrancing vocals. To put it simply, “Ghost” haunts in the best way possible. In addition, the boys premiered the official music video this morning with Nylon. You can watch the cinematic visual HERE.

Right out of the gate, the song has earned early kudos from Earmilk who wrote, “This track is sultry, elusive and most certainly a groovy new addition to that summer playlist,” while Nylon added, “The tune has the infectious sounds of a saxophone, with a ridiculously catchy chorus reminiscent of a tune off of something from Michael Jackson’s Thriller.”

“Ghost” offers a formal introduction to As The Setting Sun Comes Crashing Down On Me, arriving later this year. Be on the lookout for more soon!

The duo’s debut single “Something New” peaked at #1 on Hype Machine and garnered praise from Billboard and Elvis Duran who dubbed them “Artist of the Month.” Meanwhile, they performed the song on NBC’s the Today Show with Kathie Lee & Hoda and went on to support Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy, and Weezer on the road. To date, the track has amassed over 4.1 million Spotify streams and counting. Following the release of their self-titled Secret Weapons EP, the guys hunkered down and began work on what would become their debut album—out soon!
