BIG BOI UNVEILS MUSIC VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “CHOCOLATE” FEATURING TROZÉ

(August 4, 2017 –Los Angeles, CA) Today, seven-time GRAMMY® Award-winning, RIAA diamond-certified hip-hop luminary, producer, and member of OutKast—Big Boi—shares the music video for his latest single “Chocolate” [feat. Trozé].

Watch it HERE.

The clip plays out like a movie. Swagged-out in red head-to-toe like an O.G. player, “Daddy Fat Sax” pulls up in a classic ride with four lovely ladies on the way to a “video shoot.” After this hilarious intro, “Chocolate” ramps up into slick and sexy vignettes edited to flow seamlessly with the danceable groove and booming hook—“cho-co-late.” There’s no song more rich and delicious right now!

Given that style, it’s no surprise Dave Chapelle picked the video to play during his intermission.

Check it out HERE.

“Chocolate” is available now on Big Boi’s third full-length solo album and first release for Epic Records, Boomiverse. Get it HERE!

One of history’s tightest and most clever rhyme mavericks, Big Boi’s indelible influence courses throughout two generations of rap music. As one-half of OutKast, he achieved seven GRAMMY® Awards, sold 25 million records, and created a string of music’s most influential work, including Aquemini, Stankonia, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, and Speakerboxxx/The Love Below—which went RIAA Diamond making OutKast the first and only hip-hop artist in history to win the GRAMMY® for ‘Album of the Year.’ Big Boi’s 2010 solo debut, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, bowed at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 and received unanimous critical acclaim with Pitchfork proclaiming it one of the “100 Best Albums of the Decade ‘So Far'” and topping year-end lists from Time, Paste, Vibe, and more.

His 2012 follow-up Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors enamored tastemakers and fans alike and boasted collaborations with A$AP Rocky, Killer Mike, Kid Cudi, and more. In 2015, Big Boi collaborated with Phantogram to create supergroup Big Grams. Their debut self-titled album was released to critical and fan delight.

CAPTAIN CUTS RELEASE NEW SINGLE “COCAINA” FEATURING RICH THE KID & DANIELS

(Aug. 4, 2017 – LOS ANGELES, CA) – Following up their red hot breakout smash “Love Like We Used To” [feat. Nateur], multi-platinum songwriting, production, and remix team Captain Cuts serve up their brand new single “Cocaina” [feat. Rich The Kid & Daniels] today.

Listen to it HERE. Get the single HERE via Epic Records.

Chopping up lines of funk guitars, island swagger, and atomic pop, the song settles into an addictive audio groove that’s immediately impossible to shake. Rich The Kid and Daniels join the fun with catchy cameos before culminating on the intoxicating chant—“Co-ca-i-na!”

About the song, Ryan McMahon of Captain Cuts shares, “We had just come back from a week of writing in Nicaragua with Daniels and a couple friends. Sitting in our dark studio in L.A., we were imagining ourselves back on the beach in Nicaragua and came up with that acoustic guitar riff and all of the Latin percussion. The vibe definitely felt like the lyric needed to be fun and not serious. So, we started talking about falling in love with a party girl who may or may not be a drug dealer…And ‘Cocaina’ was born.”

It’s the ultimate party anthem…

It’s been a busy summer for the boys. They performed their debut show at Summerfest on July 4th with The Chainsmokers and produced the new Neon Trees single “Feel Good,” also out today. Stay tuned for the unveiling of the fittingly outrageous and awesome “Cocaina” music video, premiering very soon as well as more surprises from these pop mavericks.

With over 10 million cumulative Spotify streams and counting, “Love Like We Used To” properly introduced the group’s patented “Retro-Future Pop.” Entertainment Weekly called it one of the “100 Best Songs of 2016,” proclaiming, “Good luck trying to sit still.” Idolator described it as “an unashamedly romantic and radio-friendly earworm,” and Fuse dubbed it, “a major tune.” It’s already amassed over 6 million cumulative streams on Spotify so far.

It’s very possible you’ve already sung along to a Captain Cuts song. Since their 2010 formation, the award-winning multiplatinum-certified songwriting, production, and remix team has left an indelible mark on pop music. The lifelong friends and Los Angeles natives co-wrote the inescapable triple-platinum “Shut Up and Dance” with Walk The Moon and wrote and produced Grouplove’s platinum “Tongue Tied,” Halsey’s “Roman Holiday,” Tove Lo’s “Crave,” Bebe Rexha’s “I Got You,” and more as well as songs for Jennifer Lopez, Tegan and Sara, and many others. They’ve also done official remixes for the likes of Britney Spears, Imagine Dragons, and Ellie Goulding, to name a few. The trio broke genre barriers, mashing up turn-of-the-century emo and rock staples from Blink-182, Paramore, and Say Anything with current pop hits from Fetty Wap, Selena Gomez, and Drake on the 2015 mixtape If You’re Listening It’s Never Too Late and earning praise from Los Angeles Times, Rolling Stone, Spin, Billboard, and Alternative Press, along the way. After a meeting with the Epic Records A&R team, the label signed them as artists, kicking off their next evolution.

WRABEL RELEASES NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO FOR “THE VILLAGE” IN WAKE OF TRANS MILITARY BAN 
PENS MOVING AND HEARTFELT LETTER

(August 1, 2017 – Los Angeles, CA) Tired of staying silent in the face of oppression and injustice, critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Wrabel bravely speaks out with his new song “The Village,” accompanied by an impactful video created in partnership with Spotify. Featuring trans actor August Aiden, the emotional video directed by Dano Cerny gives insight into the difficult experience known all too well to the trans community. Listen to “The Village” HERE and watch HERE.

A stunning anthem of protest, Wrabel holds nothing back and takes a stand with one of his most heartfelt and heavy compositions to date. It’s politically minded. It’s passionate. It’s powerful. It’s purely necessary in these times.

In addition, he penned an open letter regarding “The Village”. You can find it enclosed below.

Letter re: “The Village”

i wrote this song on february 23rd. the day after trump took away federal protections for trans students in public schools. today i release it, just days after he tweeted to ban trans people from serving in the military.

i just wanted to write a simple song letting anyone that feels like an outsider know that the problem isn’t you, it’s them. it’s the village. not in an aggressive us vs. them way, but just because you are the minority… just because people whisper “freak” when u walk down the hall… all of these things… it’s so hard out there… i know it is. these things aren’t pointing towards something wrong with YOU they’re pointing to a humongous problem with the majority… the “them”. there’s nothing wrong with you, there’s something wrong with the village.

two of my biggest supporters are trans teenagers. i’ve had the chance to meet their families. to get to know them. to hear about their struggles and dreams. hi. if you guys are reading this, i need to say thank you. thank you for being YOU. thank you for being honest and courageous and bold and vulnerable and transparent and true. you inspire me to be myself. you inspire me to be fearless in my self expression. my heart breaks for you. what this man is saying and doing. it has to stop. he is giving the village permission to hate. to look at those who are different as wrong and lesser than. i don’t know how else to raise my voice than in a song. and so, i wrote a song for you.

i came out as gay at around 23. i grew up in the church. i came out into a church in los angeles that called it “same sex attraction”. it was wrong. i was wrong. it was evil. i was evil. “unnatural” they called it. “unnatural” they called me. i can’t pretend like i know what it’s like to be trans. to feel those feelings and know those struggles. all i can do is try to speak up and try to relate.

there’s nothing wrong with you, there’s something wrong with the village.

Join Wrabel as he stands up for change and speaks out.
