CAMILA CABELLO RELEASES NEW VERSION OF PLATINUM SELLING, “NEVER BE THE SAME,” FEATURING KANE BROWN
‘CAMILA’ SURPASSES ONE BILLION STREAMS AND IS FIRST ALBUM OF 2018 TO BE CERTIFIED PLATINUM
“HAVANA” CERTIFIED 5X PLATINUM
(April 27, 2018 — Los Angeles, CA) — Global chart-topping singer/songwriter Camila Cabello has joined forces with multi-platinum-selling country breakout artist Kane Brown to release a new version of Camila’s growing smash hit “Never Be The Same.” The genre-crossing track is out today and already setting social media ablaze. Listen HERE!
The stunning collaboration combines each artist’s unique star power that separately has propelled them to the top of multiple charts. Both artists are currently surging with Top 5 singles – Brown with his stirring ballad “Heaven,” and Camila with the platinum-plus initial release of “Never Be The Same.” Last month Camila released the sultry video for the hit song, which you can watch HERE. It is the second single from her recently-crowned platinum debut album, CAMILA, the first album of 2018 to be certified platinum. The song is currently #2 at Top 40 Radio, with Rolling Stone hailing it as ‘Camila Cabello at her best, even at her most tormented…’. Genre-busting Brown deftly lends his “viscous and rich, low and wide” (NY Times) vocals to the new track.
Today’s release continues Camila’s culture-bridging domination of the pop landscape. Her sold-out headline “Never Be the Same Tour” winds down its North America trek in the next week with a slate of Canadian and east coast U.S. shows on tap before heading overseas in June. Soon after, Camila will join Taylor Swift this summer on the star’s eagerly awaited Reputation tour. Last week, Camila added to her growing list of industry accolades, receiving four 2018 Billboard Music Award nominations: Top New Artist, Top Female Artist, Top Collaboration, and a Billboard Chart Achievement nod. Along with her nominations, she will also perform live on the Billboard Awards, which will air Sunday, May 20th at 5pm PST/8pm EST on NBC.
Camila’s triumphant cross-country trek is buoyed by her record-setting debut album which topped the charts in the U.S. and around the world. CAMILA debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Albums chart the same week her enduring mega-hit “Havana” (featuring Young Thug) reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. She is the first female artist in 15 years to simultaneously lock down her first #1 on both charts in the same week. Last week “Havana” was certified 5X platinum by the RIAA, continuing its unprecedented stature as one of the pinnacle breakthrough hits of recent memory. “Havana” had the longest run at #1 on Billboard’s Top 40 Radio chart in 5 years in addition to holding #1 for 5 weeks in the UK (The British Sunday Times hailed Camila as ‘the biggest pop star in the world’), the longest running female #1 single on the British charts since Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ in 2011. Camila has truly become a global phenomenon, with her self-titled debut notching the #1 spot on iTunes in 100 countries, breaking the record for most iTunes #1 peaks for a debut album, male or female. Camila has also turned the streaming world upside down, setting record Spotify numbers with multiple hits, surpassing a billion streams with CAMILA and totaling more than 2 billion Spotify streams overall to become the 37th most streamed artist of all-time.
Breakthrough country star Kane Brown broke onto the scene and topped the Billboard Top Country Albums for 11-weeks with his platinum-selling self-titled debut effort, earning him the best new artist country debut of the past three years and setting a record as the only artist in Billboard history to simultaneously top all five Country charts. A three-time Billboard Award nominee and double Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM) nominee this year, Brown’s current single, the Platinum-selling “Heaven,” is quickly rising (Top 5) at Country radio. “Heaven” has held the #1 slot for 7 weeks on Nielsen’s On Demand Audio Core Country Streaming chart and is Brown’s third track to achieve Platinum or Multi-Platinum certification. “Heaven” follows Brown’s ACM nominated, breakthrough #1 multi-platinum single “What Ifs” featuring Lauren Alaina, which was 2018’s #1 most-streamed country song. The 24-year-old singer/songwriter has garnered over 1 billion on-demand audio and video streams including 81 million views for “Heaven,” available HERE. Brown continues to break records– from his Chapter 1 EP (2016) which was the highest-debuting country EP of the Nielsen SoundScan era to his #1 debut album Kane Brown, which became the sole country album released since December 2016 to receive RIAA Platinum certification status and the only country album to achieve 11 weeks at #1 in the same time period.
Camila’s sold out “Never Be The Same Tour” continues with shows in Toronto and Montreal this weekend, then heads on to Boston on April 29th, Philadelphia on May 1st, and New York City on May 4th, with shows scheduled in the UK and Amsterdam for early June.

HYPEBEAST PREMIERES MUSIC VIDEO FOR FIRST SINGLE “CODE OF HONOR” FEATURING FUTURE & SCHOOLBOY Q
WATCH THE ALBUM TRAILER
(March 26, 2018 – Los Angeles, CA) – Artist, producer, A&R visionary, and “The COOLest DJ In The World” DJ ESCO will unleash his anxiously awaited major label full-length album, KOLORBLIND [Freebandz/Epic Records], available for download and streaming at all digital retailers and platforms Friday March 30, 2018.
It’s available for pre-save with a fan incentive of exclusive KOLORBLIND merchandise HERE.
This album is a reflection of Esco, who is, in fact, color blind. Esco’s meaning behind the title KOLORBLIND, is that “there are no boundaries, no black and white, no red and blue. When you listen to the music it’s purely enjoyment for musical purposes,” says Esco.
This morning, Hypebeast exclusively premiered the music video for the first single “Code Of Honor” [feat. Future & ScHoolboy Q] which is available for streaming and download at all digital retailers now. Over ice cold beats and pulsating production, Future’s raw verses collide with brash bars from ScHoolboy Q before a hypnotic hook takes hold. It’s unshakable and undeniable.
In the music video, Esco cruises the Hollywood Hills before landing at a wild house party flanked by red hot foreign whips and even hotter models. It’s the perfect gateway to KOLORBLIND and yet another banger from the Freebandz icon.
Watch it HERE.
On Friday, he first gave fans a preview of what to expect by sharing a hyped trailer on WorldStarHipHop. Excitement is only just beginning to ramp up for the record’s arrival.
Beyond his musical ubiquity, DJ Esco recently linked up with Diesel for his own collection. Expect more high-profile fashion moves and collaborations soon. He’s also hosting a weekly residency at Drai’s in Las Vegas every Thursday beginning April 19 through May 31!
A cornerstone of today’s sound, DJ Esco has maintained his place at the forefront of 21st century hip-hop. Future’s official DJ since 2008, and executive producer of the multi-platinum DS2 back in 2015, which is Future’s biggest album to date. He also executive produced the 2017 back-to-back Billboard Top 200 #1 platinum powerhouses, Future and Hndrxx. In addition to dropping underground favorites such as Ball Like Me in 2012 and No Sleep in 2014, his 56-night stay in a Dubai prison infamously inspired Future’s 2015 classic mixtape, 56 Nights. Between endless touring, 2016 saw DJ Esco drop Project E.T. The latter yielded the smash “Too Much Sauce,” which racked up over 76.4 million Spotify streams to date.
