ZARA LARSSON’s HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW ALBUM SO GOOD ARRIVES MARCH 17th ON EPIC RECORDS !

(Feb. 3, 2017 –Los Angeles, CA) Epic Records/Ten’s 19-year old worldwide mega-platinum sensation Zara Larsson, named one of TIME magazine’s “30 Most Influential Teens of 2016,” will release her new album SO GOOD on March 17th. Pre-orders start today. The new album is jet propelled by the brand new single “So Good” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, which is gathering momentum at Top 40 and Rhythm radio formats since it impacted last week.

The “So Good” video premieres today at VEVO, where Zara has over 1.2 billion views, and over 3 million subscribers. Zara will introduce the song when she returns to Ellen on February 7th.

Swedish pop singer Zara Larsson established a strong U.S. audience with her first two back-to-back hit singles of 2015, the RIAA platinum reggae-tinged “Lush Life” and the double-platinum “Never Forget You” (a collabo­ration with Grammy nominated artist/producer MNEK). But prior to that, Zara was already a major star in Europe, thanks to Introducing and Let Me Reintroduce Myself, her two EPs of 2013, and a string of multi-platinum singles (“Uncover,” “Carry You Home,” and “Rooftop”) that appeared on her 2014 album 1.

Since the release of 1, the relentlessly hard-working Larsson has seen her career go into over­drive. In 2016, she was featured on Tinie Tempah’s “Girls Like” and David Guetta’s “This One’s for You,” which was the official song of UEFA Euro 2016. Over the summer, she performed with Guetta during the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2016 EuroCup, and opened for her idol Beyoncé’s Formation World Tour in London. She became part of the Spotify Billions Club for racking up over one billion streams at the digital platform.

Into the fall, Larsson delivered a show-stopping performance at the MTV EMAs in the Nether­lands, where she took home awards for Best New Act and Best Swedish Act. In the U.S., she won the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award for Best Swedish Act, and was nominated for Best New Artist at the MTV VMAs. In the UK, Zara has been nominated for Best New Artist at the upcoming 2017 NME Awards (February 15th); and for British Single of the Year and British Video for “Girls Like” at the upcoming 2017 BRIT Awards (February 22nd).

To date, Zara has performed on nearly every major morning and late-night talk show, cement­ing her loyal and supportive American fan base. Her upcoming North American tour will give Zara the opportunity to do what she loves best: performing live for as many people as possible. “My dream,” she says, “is to stand in front of 25,000 people in a sold-out arena and know that everyone came out to make memories with me. That’s a beautiful thing.”

MAN WITH A MISSION—ULTIMATE LIFE FORM ROCK BAND—RELEASES NEW SINGLE “DEAD END IN TOKYO” VIA EPIC RECORDS

(January 27, 2017 – New York, NY) – MAN WITH A MISSION–the five-piece rock band that blends rock, punk, pop and dance–today (1/27) have released their new single “Dead End in Tokyo,” co-written and produced by Patrick Stump, via Epic Records. Download/stream “Dead End in Tokyo” on the following platforms: iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play and Amazon Digital. The official music video for “Dead End in Tokyo” was also released today and can be seen here. Look for the single to start impacting rock and alternative radio February 20.

“It’s mainly about the city of Tokyo,” says Jean-Ken Johnny (vocals and guitar). “It’s a really crazy city. Almost everything happens there. At the same time, almost everything ends there. I believe there are a lot of cities that have that in common. It’s a common perspective on big cities around the globe. We focused on the people who come to Tokyo, have big dreams, but end up stuck in a dead end. We talked it through with Patrick, and we were on the same page. It was amazing working with him.”

“Dead End in Tokyo” marks the first global single for MAN WITH A MISSION– Tokyo Tanaka (vocals), Kamikaze Boy (bass), Jean-Ken Johnny (vocals and guitar), DJ Santa Monica (DJ) and Spear Rib (drums)–and first release under Epic Records. The track confidently struts along on an arena-ready groove and thick guitars before culminating in the chant, “Keep on living, but you’ll never leave alive.”

“Dead End in Tokyo” illustrates the band’s evolution and embrace of its earliest influences as well. “What we do is rock music, but we mix in other genres we love like hip-hop, alternative, electronic, and metal,” shares Johnny. “That’s what makes a solid rock song. Every time we go to America and perform, it feels like I’m tracing back what I’ve been listening to.”

Meanwhile, the band—whose distinguishing feature is that all members wear differently designed wolf masks during both their concerts and music videos—will be opening up for Guns N’ Roses this Saturday (1/28) at the sold-out Saitama Super Arena in Tokyo. U.S. fans can expect MAN WITH A MISSION to hit the road in the states during 2017; more details to follow.

ABOUT MAN WITH A MISSION:
As the story goes, half-man, half-wolf band MAN WITH A MISSION thawed out of icy coffins in 2010 and tore through Japan with a feral rock ‘n’ roll energy on par with that of Godzilla. Over the course of four albums, most recently 2016’s The World’s On Fire (Sony Music Entertainment), the band became an international phenomenon in their own right. Produced by the legendary Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Korn) and featuring collaborations with ††† (Crosses)’ Shaun Lopez (Deftones, Lupe Fiasco), the record clawed its way to #1 on iTunes and sold over 200K physical copies in less than two months. Since their emergence, they’ve taken a bite out of world-renowned festivals such as Fuji Rock, Summer Sonic, Knotfest and more in addition to touring with Rise Against. Slipknot DJ Sid Wilson shared the stage with these animals during a sold-out show at The Roxy in Hollywood and lent his remixing talents to “Distance.” Moreover, their music has been heard in Street Fighter V and the Japanese release of the Academy® Award-nominated blockbuster Mad Max: Fury Road.

Teeth sharpened and harrier than ever, they set their sights on North America for a 2017 takeover.

GRAMMY AWARD®-NOMINATED, MULTI-PLATINUM SELLING SINGER/SONGWRITER, PRODUCER, BUSINESS ENTREPRENEUR, AND REALITY TV SHOW SUPERSTAR KEYSHIA COLE RELEASES NEW SINGLE “YOU” FEATURING REMY MA AND FRENCH MONTANA

(January 27, 2017 – New York, NY) Four-time Grammy Award®-nominated, multi-platinum selling singer and songwriter, producer, business entrepreneur, and reality TV show superstar Keyshia Cole releases new single “You” featuring Remy Ma and French Montana exclusively on Fader.com today. Keyshia will perform “You” for the first time on Jimmy Kimmel Live! January 30th at 11:35PM on ABC. Followed by performance and interview on The Real February 7th at 11:00AM on FOX.

Check out the song HERE

Last month the songstress announced that she signed an exclusive contract with Epic Records. Keyshia stated on the Instagram post “I take pride in saying I’m now a part of the Epic Family!! And a goal that my Epic fam and I mutually share is to take this passion to new heights!”

Keyshia Cole exploded onto the R&B and pop scene in the summer of 2005, with her RIAA platinum debut album The Way It Is (A&M), featuring the RIAA platinum single “Love.” Its successful run established the passionate young Oakland, Cali native among the pantheon of crossover Urban stars. She won VIBE’s Next Award and was nominated for a slew of top honors at the NAACP Image Awards, BET Awards, Viewer’s Choice Awards, Soul Train Awards, American Music Awards, and Urban Music Awards. This avalanche of success dovetailed in the summer 2006 with Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is, her first reality TV show, which aired for three seasons on BET through 2008.

The 2007 release of Keyshia’s second album Just Like You, with guest appearances by Diddy, Missy Elliott, Lil’ Kim, Too $hort, Anthony Hamilton, T.I., and others, coincided with the second season of her TV show, sending the album to a #2 Soundscan debut and RIAA platinum sales. The platinum single “Let It Go” (featuring Missy Elliott and Lil’ Kim) was the first of three #1 R&B smashes, including “I Remember” and “Heaven Sent.” Keyshia earned her first Grammy® nominations at the 2008 awards, for Just Like You as Best Contemporary R&B Album, and for “Let It Go” as Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. The following year, “Heaven Sent” qualified for Grammy® nominations as Best Female R&B Vocal and Best R&B Song.

Keyshia’s third consecutive RIAA platinum album A Different Me arrived at the end of 2008, to another #2 Soundscan debut. The album spun off a trio of Top 10 R&B hits, “Playa Cardz Right” (a posthumous duet with 2Pac), “You Complete Me,” and “Trust” (featuring Monica). Keyshia’s 23-city A Different Me Tour of May-June 2009 was her first headlining tour.

Into the new decade, Keyshia balanced her new role as a mother with her recording career, starting with the release of Calling All Hearts at the end of 2010. 2012 marked the launch of a new reality series, Keyshia & Daniel: Family First, which underscored the making of her new album, Woman To Woman, released at the end of the year. Keyshia’s most recent album, Point Of No Return (2014), was distinguished by the fact that 8 of its 11 tracks were issued as music videos, extending into early 2015. In February 2015, she premiered her third and most recent reality TV series, the 8-episode Keyshia Cole: All In.

RICK ROSS RELEASES NEW SINGLE “I THINK SHE LIKE ME” FEATURING TY DOLLA $IGN

(January 27, 2017 – New York, NY) – After steadily teasing its release all week on his social media, four-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum 21st century rap legend and Maybach Music Group mastermind Rick Ross shares his brand new single.

Following up 2016’s “Buy Back The Block” [feat. Gucci Mane & 2 Chainz], this is the first official single from his forthcoming ninth full-length album and anxiously awaited Epic Records debut, Rather You Than Me [MMG/Epic Records].

Excitement for “I Think She Like Me” has been building online throughout this past week. On Wednesday, Ross uncovered the single artwork via his Instagram which immediately ignited fans, causing a social media frenzy. Yesterday, he debuted a short clip from the music video, and his followers went wild. Now, he premieres the full video on VEVO. In the visual, he goes from kicking it by the pool at a ritzy waterfront Malibu estate to a sexy masquerade ball steeped in mystery. The song’s soulful production harks back to Teflon Don, while his inimitable gruff delivery carries impenetrable bars between a sultry and sizzling Ty Dolla $ign hook. There’s a lot to like about it!

At midnight, he penned a touching and honest statement about the last eleven years and the release of Rather You Than Me. “This album is more than just another project for me. It’s a product of strength, perseverance and determination. Rather You Than Me is a testimony,” going on to add, “I owed this to my supporters. Y’all that been rocking with me since we came out The Port of Miami. Without you none of this shit really means anything. Rather You Than Me…I hope y’all feel this.” Read the full piece HERE.

“Buy Back The Block” introduced the album with a bang. It already cracked 4 million Spotify streams and counting, while the cinematic music video notched over 11 million YouTube/VEVO views. Complex called it, “A big moment,” while Pitchfork, Spin, and others featured it.

“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 the impending release of his ninth full-length Rather You Than Me.
