(March 2, 2018 — Los Angeles, CA) — Today, Lauren Sanderson releases her brand new single “Written in the Stars” [feat. PnB Rock] via Epic Records.
Get it at all DSPs HERE. Stream it on YouTube HERE.
The song premiered yesterday on Complex, commenting “If you haven’t heard of Lauren Sanderson, now’s the time to get acquainted.” “Written in the Stars” serves as the perfect introduction to the world of the alternative-R&B-hip-hop temptress. Her smoky intonation entwines with a minimalist beat punctuated by finger-snaps and soulful harmonies before Philly rapper and singer PnB Rock turns up with an entrancing verse of his own. 22-year-old Ft. Wayne, Indiana native Sanderson seamlessly switches from confessional bars into a hypnotic hook that’s as provocative as it is poetic.
Additionally, it marks her formal Epic Records debut, announcing her arrival as the label’s latest powerhouse new voice.
These stories just don’t happen on their own—somebody makes them happen through blood, sweat, tears, and dreams. Completely self-made, the songstress quietly cooked up her self-released EP Spaces in 2017. Upon release, it captured #1 on iTunes Top R&B Albums Chart with no traditional promotion. Additionally, singles like “Fake Love” and “Anyone” [feat. Former Vandal] would both crack the 1 million mark on Spotify. Last year, she independently routed, scheduled, and booked an 18-city tour. Resonating within the hearts and minds of a diehard audience, she not only has amassed over 200K cumulative social followers, but she also often pens letters by hand for them.
With her full-length major label debut on the way, success seems “Written in the Stars” for Sanderson.
GLOBAL SUPERSTAR MEGHAN TRAINOR
NEW SINGLE “NO EXCUSES”
REVEALS ENERGETIC AND COLORFUL MUSIC VIDEO
THIRD FULL-LENGTH ALBUM COMING SOON
(March 1, 2018 — Los Angeles, CA) — Today, GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Meghan Trainor returns with her brand new single “No Excuses,” available worldwide now! Get it HERE via Epic Records.
It’s the first glimpse of what’s in store from her third full-length offering and one of the year’s most anticipated blockbuster releases—coming soon.
Trainor wrote ‘NO EXCUSES’ with songwriter JKash and Andrew Wells. The song is produced by Andrew Wells with additional production by the artist herself. The single tempers swaggering bass lines, bright guitars, and widescreen synths with an instantly infectious call-and-response. The boisterous production underscores a deeper message encoded in the hook, “Your mama raised you better than that.”
“I love how so many women are standing up for what’s right,” says Trainor. “I wanted to write us all a powerful anthem. Sometimes, people talk down to me, because I’ve only been doing this for four years, so I wrote this song. It’s my modern version of ‘R-E-S-P-E-C-T.’ It’s all about equality and being kind.”
Complementing this upbeat and undeniable anthem, she also shared the single’s official music video, shot by Colin Tilley. The high-energy visual brings the words to life as the songstress owns the screen more confident and charismatic than ever.
If happiness had a soundtrack, it would be this album. Trainor triumphantly emerged from a terrifying second vocal cord surgery, four months without speaking, and debilitating anxiety into a fiery and focused force of nature. Empowering herself through self-love and care, she bottles that energy within new music. Recorded primarily with producer Wells, it would be a family affair. On every anthem, she enlisted a choir—comprised of her mom, dad, brothers, and fiancé—to add backing vocals. It’s undoubtedly her biggest, brightest, and best body of work to date.
Stay tuned for more from Trainor very soon.
Grammy-Award winning singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Meghan Trainor emerged with her 2014 breakout single “All About That Bass” and disrupted contemporary music with nostalgic pop beats and powerhouse vocals that delivered a worldwide anthem for female empowerment. Trainor cemented her rising status as one of the most prominent artists in popular music by charting seven multi-platinum singles, releasing two platinum albums, selling out three headline tours, writing multi-platinum hits for top pop and country artists, and receiving countless industry awards and nominations worldwide. She is one of only five female artists to receive a diamond certification for her hit single “All About That Bass” which shares the RIAA Gold & Platinum Awards top honor with only 15 other singles in history. Earlier this year, Meghan wrapped up her first season as a panelist on FOX’s hit singing competition series THE FOUR: Battle for Stardom.

BUSTA RHYMES RETURNS WITH NEW SINGLE “GET IT” FEATURING MISSY ELLIOTT & KELLY ROWLAND
(February 2, 2018 – Los Angeles, CA) Hip-hop legend Busta Rhymes returns with his brand new single “Get It” [feat. Missy Elliott & Kelly Rowland] today.
Get it HERE via The Conglomerate Ent./Epic Records.
Once again, the eleven-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated multi platinum rap icon, producer, actor, and The Conglomerate Entertainment C.E.O lands a lyrical roundhouse at light speed on the track. Joined by two fellow game-changers Missy Elliott and Kelly Rowland, “Bus-a-Bus” reasserts his place at the forefront of the artform, delivering something of a rhyme master class like only he can.
Speaking of rhymes, he co-stars in a brand new Doritos Blaze vs Mountain Dew Ice commercial alongside Elliott and Academy® Award-winner Morgan Freeman and EMMY® Award winner Peter Dinklage, airing this Sunday during the Super Bowl. As Freeman and Dinklage go toe-to-toe in a lip sync battle, Busta and Elliott serve as their coaches. It’s sound-tracked by the spitter’s legendary verse on Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now.”
“Get It” follows up the 2017 hit “Girlfriend” [feat. Vybz Kartel & Tory Lanez]. Not only did it crack 4.4 million Spotify streams, but it also lit up YouTube with 7.6 million views and counting. Additionally, it garnered praise from Rolling Stone, Complex, XXL, Billboard, HotNewHipHop, and more. Shortly after the release, he took the stage at the Kennedy Center Honors for LL Cool J.
Right now, Busta is putting the finishing touches on his forthcoming ninth and first album for The Conglomerate Ent./Epic Records, album title announcement coming soon.
With him back on the mic, nobody is safe!
With his ironclad flow, uncatchable cadence, and unparalleled vocal virtuosity, BUSTA RHYMES has influenced three generations of rappers and musicians since his emergence in 1989 as part of Leaders of the New School. A multi platinum superstar, he went on to release a series of undisputed solo classics such as The Coming, When Disaster Strikes…, E.L.E. (Extinction Level Event): The Final World Front, Anarchy, and more. Along the way, he garnered a total of eleven GRAMMY® Award nominations. Simultaneously, he graced the big screen in blockbusters ranging from Shaft and Finding Forrester to Higher Learning and Halloween Resurrection. Ever the businessman, he serves as the C.E.O. of The Conglomerate Entertainment as well. In 2018, he kicks off another era. Get ready for another album of Epic proportions from BUSTA this year!
