UNITES GLOBAL MEGA-STARS ON THE BLOCKBUSTER SINGLE FROM UPCOMING SOUNDTRACK ALBUM FOR SONY PICTURES’ BAD BOYS FOR LIFE COMING JANUARY 10, 2020

BLACK EYED PEAS X J BALVIN DROP NEW TRACK & VIDEO “RITMO (BAD BOYS FOR LIFE)”

(October 11, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – Pacing for the most-anticipated comeback in recent memory, Black Eyed Peas resurface with a smash on par with their legendary run of hits…

The six-time GRAMMY® Award-winning, genre-bending pioneers x history-making reggaeton superstar J Balvin—who remains one of the hottest acts in the globe today and possibly the biggest Latin star of the millennium—share a new collaborative single entitled “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)” today. This marks the group’s first release under their newly minted deal withEpic Records. Uniting these two titans, this is undoubtedly the biggest song of 2019, to say the least. 

Get it HERE!

The song heralds the arrival of the anxiously awaited Bad Boys For Life Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Album. It lands in stores and at all digital retailers on January 10, 2020. Meanwhile, the mega-anticipated Bad Boys For Life—starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence–opens in theaters everywhere the same day. It stands out as the third installment of the classic Bad Boys franchise, one of the most successful action series of all-time.

“RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)” similarly captures the high-octane action the franchise remains known for. Breaking boundaries, it fuses Black Eyed Peas’ inimitable hybrid of hip-hop and pop with Balvin’s incendiary and infectious take on reggaeton. Fittingly, the word “Ritmo” translates to “Rhythm” in English. The song impacts Top 40, Latin, and Rhythm Crossover on Monday November 4. Meanwhile, Colin Tilley [Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna] helmed the accompanying music video intercut with explosive sequences from the movie.

Check it out HERE.

After two decades signed to Jimmy Iovine’s Interscope Records, Black Eyed Peas find a home with Sylvia Rhone at Epic Records. They join an iconic roster and align with the culture’s most trusted label.

Black Eyed Peas co-founder will.i.am said, “I wanted to reimagine ‘The Rhythm of the Night’ by Corona and give it a minimal, futurist, afro-fused reggaeton vibe. The final song and video feel like the classic next level futurism that the Black Eyed Peas are all about.”

J Balvin added, “I’ve been a Black Eyed Peas fan for as long as I can remember. They are legends!! and it’s an honor to join them and become part of the sound of Bad Boys for Life.”

Sony Motion Picture Group’s President of Music, Spring Aspers also said, “What a thrill to bring together the Bad Boys franchise with top global artists the Black Eyed Peas and J Balvin. I’m beyond excited to be partnering with Sony Music and Epic Records to deliver this amazing soundtrack.”

Last week, Black Eyed Peas jetted to Brazil to co-Headline RockInRio. Meanwhile, they appeared on Luciano Hucks’ show the day after. Next up, they fly to Australia & New Zealand for the next leg of their tour, and then wrap up on stage at closing ceremony of the SEA Games in the Philippines on December 11 for a performance of “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life).

Black Eyed Peas continue to set the rhythm for the globe in 2019, 2020, and beyond.

It stands out as the latest track to be uncovered from her anxiously awaited second full-length and one of the most anticipated albums of 2019, Romance—coming very soon.

“Easy” illuminates yet another side of her artistry. Plucks of harp and keys glisten alongside a sparse beat as her angelic delivery powers vulnerable verses. This bold ballad builds towards the catchy and confessional refrain, “I always thought I was hard to love until you made it seem easy.

Next up, Camila makes her Saturday Night Live debut this Saturday October 12. Expect a powerhouse performance from the singer. Tune in to NBC.

RAJA KUMARI RELEASES MUSIC VIDEO FOR “KARMA”

[October 8, 2019 – New York, NY] GRAMMY® Award-nominated songwriter and rapper Raja Kumari unleashes the official music video for her track “KARMA” today. The Sam Madhu-directed visuals premiered earlier today via The FADER, who described the video as “balanc[ing] historical Indian imagery with neon colors.”

Check out the video HERE.

The colorful and empowering clip was created by an all-female team in collaboration with Kumari and Madhu. In speaking about the video, Kumari told The FADER

“KARMA is a reminder that beautiful things come to life when strong women put their skills together. The video was done by an all-female team. It started as a collaboration between myself and Sam Madhu, which explores transitions from art to reality and remixes cultural elements from the past and the future. It is inspired by traditional Indian aesthetics and futuristic cyberpunk worlds.

Sam basically developed the idea of a neon universe in which I’m the central character, where traditional Indian elements like Rakshasa masks, goddesses and tigers are reborn with contemporary, neon aesthetics to create a universe where I appear as an array of compelling, powerful female characters. So you’ll see a latex matrix-inspired Rakshasi, a neon devi with her shocking pink tiger, a futuristic laser goddess. The video was so fun to make, and I feel like it represent a real female-empowerment moment. “

The song itself is produced by Sean Garrett and packs a passionate and powerful punch locked and loaded with robust rhymes and fierce delivery over a throwback beat with international resonances, which Idolator says finds the artist “coming into her own.”

BLOODLINE was released this February on Epic Records and can be streamed on all DSPs HERE.  The 5-track project also boasts the acclaimed single “SHOOK.” TIME Magazine commending it as a song that “drips with blustering self-assuredness,” and its Gil Green (Drake, Kanye West)-directed music video has amassed 5.5 million-plus views. Along with Sean Garrett, the EP also includes production work from Danja

Currently, Kumari is a judge on the MTV India show Hustle, mentoring the next generation of artists in a rap battle competition show. It was the highest rated premiere in the network’s history. After completing her own headlining North American tour, she recently performed alongside Wiz Khalifa in New Delhi and was the first Indian artist to perform at the F1 Festival in Singapore. Look out for more new music from the budding superstar, coming soon.

JEZ DIOR RELEASES DEBUT ALBUM HANDLE WITH CARE TODAY

[October 4, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA] Today, rising genre-bursting songwriter, singer and rapper Jez Dior releases his anticipated debut studio album, Handle With Care.

Get it at all DSPs HERE via Epic Records.

The 11 track project features recent singles “Don’t You Worry” and “Please Don’t Go,” along with previously released tracks “Cocaine and “Nobody Knows (ft. Jackson Guthy).”

Along with the album, today Jez releases the official music video for “Please Don’t Go.” Watch the Johan Anderson-directed visuals HERE.

On the heels of 50 million-plus streams, sold out shows, and acclaim from the likes of Time, Billboard, Complex, Nylon, Hypebeast and beyond by 2019, Jez Dior pulls together hip-hop, alternative, and pop into a powerful and personal patchwork, sharing his struggles and story as if speaking candidly right from a therapist’s couch. With an unbiased and unfiltered space for thoughts, feelings and emotions, he encourages others to open up the same way. 

About the record, he commented, I’ve always used music as a form of therapy and writing Handle With Care saved my life. This album is the story of the first 27 years of my life and is the difference between me joining ‘The 27 club’ and living. The name comes from the fact that this project is my entire life up until this point bundled up into something very fragile and delicate—just like me. I wrote these songs while battling depression and overwhelming anxiety, while dealing with heartbreak, death, and psychological trauma. I know that this music will speak to and help anyone going through similar situations. I can’t wait to share it with the world.”

Written mainly over the course of the past two years with trusted collaborators ROME of Sublime, Chris Wallace [Lost Kings, Sheppard) and Matt Rad , Handle With Care captures those sentiments perfectly. Album highlight “On My Own (featuring Goody Grace)” features an acoustic guitar that resounds through a hazy beat as Goody’s soulful crooning gives way to confessional verses from Jez. He and Goody lock into a hypnotic hook that immediately captivates. Meanwhile, bright guitars give way to handclaps and a sweeping choir on the uplifting and undeniable “Don’t You Worry. Between a six-string lead, an empowering hook exudes stadium-size ambition as Jezreassures, “No, I won’t let go. Through the highs and lows, don’t you worry, no.” On “Please Don’t Go, his cadence slides from intense raps into a singalong chant backed by acoustic strumming.

To celebrate the release of the album, Jez Dior will make a special appearance tonight at Emo Nite in Los Angeles. Additionally, tomorrow October 5Jez will host a special album release party for fans at the Hollywood Roosevelt.

GLOBAL SUPERSTAR MEGHAN TRAINOR RELEASES NEW SINGLE “WAVE” FEATURING MIKE SABATH

(September 27, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter, and producer Meghan Trainor shares her brand new single entitled “Wave” today. Get it HERE via Epic Records. The track heralds the impending arrival of her anxiously awaited third full-length album, Treat Myself, coming soon.

About “Wave, Trainor commented, “This song has been in the works for three years, and I’m so excited to finally release it! I’ve never worked harder on a song. Mike Sabath’s production and verse took it to a whole new level. I know my fans have been waiting a long time for this one, and they deserve the best. I’m happy they stuck with me. I hope they love it!”

For “Wave, she joined forces with rising New York singer, songwriter, and producer Mike Sabath [Lizzo, J Balvin, Selena Gomez, Pharrell] who recently signed with Warner Records. It begins with an intimate solo vocal from Trainor, rising towards a sweeping refrain—“Just take me like a wave”—uplifted by a full choir. Soon, the tide ebbs and flows between danceable bass and propulsive percussion before Sabath’s cameo shines.

Meghan and I got really close while working on her new album this year,” said Sabath. “We were in the studio one night working on ‘Wave’ and she asked if I would please do a verse on it. I felt super inspired by her voice and the energy of the people in the studio and was able to one take the verse and then we just filled in the lyric.

“Wave” is set to impact radio on Oct. 7th, and the music video will premiere the same day.

Recently, Trainor contributed “Genetics” to the Netflix hit Tall Girl. Additionally, she covered the Friends theme song, “I’ll Be There For You,” originally by The Rembrandts for the 25th anniversary of the iconic series. Check out “Genetics” HERE and her cover of “I’ll Be There For You” HERE. Also announced today, Meghan has joined the superstar coaching panel of ITV’s The Voice UK. She’ll be taking up a big red chair alongside Sir Tom Jones, will.i.am and Olly Murs.

Trainor has been quite literally everywhere lately. She guested on The Kelly Clarkson Show and graced the stage at the Today Show Citi Summer Concert Series for an unforgettable performance. 

About Meghan Trainor

Meghan Trainor first made history in 2014 with her diamond-certified smash single “All About That Bass.” The GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist stands out as “one of only five female artists to achieve a diamond certification from the RIAA”—an honor bestowed upon only 15 other singles to date. Thus far, she has garnered a GRAMMY® Award and achieved eight multi-platinum singles and two platinum albums, sold out three world tours, penned multi-platinum hits for peers across pop and country, and received countless industry awards and nominations. Expanding her influence, she starred on FOX’s hit series THE FOUR: Battle for Stardom for two seasons. Following 2018 anthems “No Excuses” and “Let You Be Right,” she celebrated Valentine’s Day 2019 with the love-themed six-song The Love Train EP and to kick off the summer, she collaborated with dance music titan, Kaskade, for their song “With You,” paving the way for more surprises to come.

About Mike Sabath

Mike Sabath is a 21-year-old human, singer, songwriter, musician, producer and Warner Records recording artist. He credits the universe for his creative inspiration and serves as a vessel for the frequencies to flow through. Music has always been a part of Mike’s life, starting at 18-months-old when his parents gifted him a lollipop drum that became an addition to his limbs. Ever since then, music has flowed through him and guided him all the way to today where he has gotten to create music with artists including Pharrell Williams, Lizzo, J Balvin, Miguel, Selena Gomez, Usher, Jonas Brothers, Raye, Tainy, Bea Miller and Adam Levine. The day he decided to defer his admission to Harvard University, the universe filled that space with a publishing deal from Sony/ATV that he and his manager, Don Isaac, had been working towards together. A force to be reckoned with, The New Yorker dubbed Sabath as “The Teen-Age Hitmaker from Westchester County.” Mike’s music career has greatly escalated, from his first drum to his first song “The Carlie Song” to his first full album, Let’s Go, released in 2009 that he made on GarageBand when he was 11, to having chart-topping hits with major artists, to releasing his solo project in 2020. Mike is a rare musical talent whose primary focus is to be a reflection of the light in the world and let that guide the rest.

WATCH ALBUM VISUAL TRAILER HERE

(September 27, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – Today, GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum artist, rapper, producer, and philanthropist French Montana unleashes a brand new single and music video entitled “Writing On The Wall” [feat. Post Malone,Cardi B &Rvssian].

Get it HERE via Epic Records.

This anthem aligns three of music’s biggest stars for a once-in-a-lifetime event-level collaboration. In the literally larger-than-life music video, skyscraper-size FrenchPost, and Cardi stomp through New York, towering over the skyline and turning up a mile above the streets. Backed by a tribal bass line, buoyant beat, and thick bounce, French cruises through tight bars between an instantly irresistible hook courtesy of Post and a sexy cameo from Cardi. This trio of styles ignites pure fire on the hottest posse cut of 2019.

Watch it HERE.

The writing is on the wall—this has all the makings of an end-of-the-year smash…

The track hints at even bigger things on the horizon for French. On Monday, he took to social media to announce the impending arrival of one of the most anticipated rap records of the year, his third full-length album, Montana—out in November. View the cinematic trailer HERE. Of the album, Karim “French Montana” Kharbouch commented, “You don’t have to change who you are. You can bring people into your own world.

Following the news of MONTANA, French was announced as the first “I Stand With Immigrants” Ambassador and launched his very own Karim Kharbouch Coding Fellowship Program on Wednesday. Partnering with The Knowledge House, his fellowship program will support immigrant youth residing in the Bronx, where French and The Knowledge House have already developed their reputation as changemakers in music and technology education, respectively. 

It’s the year of Montana. Be prepared.


Some artists blur genres, but French Montana blurs borders. His inimitable fusion of classic East Coast rhymes, wavy pop swagger, and international ambition elevated him to the forefront of the game on a global scale. 2017 saw him ascend to superstar status with the blockbuster smash “UNFORGETTABLE” [feat. Swae Lee], which cemented him in the “Billion Club” for streaming and earned a septuple-platinum certification from the RIAA. Meanwhile, his sophomore effort, JUNGLE RULES, went gold and dominated the charts. At the same time, he has left an indelible mark on communities around the globe. In addition to becoming the very first rap ambassador of Global Citizen, he staunchly supported humanitarian efforts, spanning DACA, the viral Mama Hope #UNFORGETTABLE Dance Challenge, which raised over $500,000-plus, and his Pan-African health and education movement into Morocco with Care Morocco. 2018 also saw him become a U.S. Citizen after emigrating to the South Bronx from Morocco at just 13-years-old.

If anyone can not only change music, but the world at large, it’s French Montana.

“DARKSIDE” VIDEO OUT NOW

RENCE RELEASES NEW EP FALL 2019 TODAY

Rence has had a breakthrough summer” – NYLON

“Rence is one of the breakout stars of 2019” – IDOLATOR

“Rence maintains his independence in an industry full of clones” – O.N.S

(September 20, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – After fueling widespread anticipation among a growing fan base and tastemakers alike, buzzing genre disruptor Rence unveils his brand new EP Fall 2019today. 

Get it HERE via Epic Records.

Over the past month, “Darkside” and “I know” offered a glimpse at the scope of the artist’s vision, with the visual for “Darkside” being released earlier this week. That vision now fully crystallizes on the six-track project. “super sad” blurs the lines between emotive transmissions and buoyant grooves, while “You don’t wanna know me” tempers lush guitar and a hauntingly hypnotic hook. The finale “Darker” serves up a powerful and poetic denouement punctuated by synth nuances and vocal fireworks. Ultimately, Fall 2019 introduces Rence’s boundary breaking at the height of its power and provocation thus far.

Check out the full tracklisting below!

He summed up Fall 2019 best by sharing, “The mood is darker—not necessarily because I’ve become darker, but because I have a dark side, and it’s been hanging around a lot lately. Basically, these songs are me going a little crazy. They were created while lost in myself and the world…feeling the weight of the world while still trying to keep a positive outlook that so many want from me.”

Fall 2019 is officially here.

Right out of the gate, Rence’s 2019 single “Expensive” [feat. Noah Cyrus] made waves and turned heads. The song has over 3.5 million global streams, while the music video has amassed over 675K YouTube/VEVO views. Of the latter, Billboard wrote, “Though the beat is quite dynamic, with synths and a toe-tapping bass line, the clip takes a darker turn, following closely with the lyrical meaning.” He also recently spoke at length on this current chapter and more to come with Substream Magazine in addition to sitting down with ONSThe Knockturnal, and ECHO around his sold out live debut at Baby’s Alright in New York. 

Sharing real life snapshots in song, Rence magnifies his personal perspective through a genre-less palette, bordering pop, alternative, electro, indie and hip-hop all at once, yet never dipping into one for too long. The Los Angeles-based artist, who was born in D.C., spent his formative teen years in Seattle and then moved to New York to attend NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, first allowed listeners to hear this irresistible inner monologue on his breakthrough independent project, Pink. The project’s lead single “Baby Blue” racked up over 4 million Spotify streams as his total tally approached 8 million. Along the way, peers such as Chelsea Cutler and FLETCHER lent support as critical acclaim came from Hilly DillyLyrical LemonadeOnes To WatchElevator Magazine, and more. Tastemaker Zane Lowe handpicked “Ways To Go” as his “World Record” on Apple Music’s Beats 1.

Now, he transforms pop on his own terms.

TRAVIS THOMPSON RELEASES DEBUT ALBUM RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT TODAY

WATCH VISUALS FOR “MALICE” FT. BEN ZAIDI HERE

(September 20, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) Turning all eyes to the Pacific Northwest, buzzing Seattle, WA rapper Travis Thompson drops his debut album, Reckless Endangerment, today.

Get the album HERE via AMBAUM/Epic Records.

Last week, he primed fans for the arrival of the full-length with the single “Malice” [feat. Ben Zaidi]. Fortified by airy keys and acrobatic wordplay, the track staked out a spot on Spotify’s coveted “New Music Friday” as HotNewHipHop declared it “new heat.” It remains just one of many standouts on Reckless Endangerment though. Watch the cinematic visual for the song HERE.

The album commences with the plink of an out-of-tune piano that bleeds into church organ on“Duality” as Travis raps with focus, flair, and fire. It follows a personal thread as he examines depression and darkness on the somber, yet soulful “Mad Mad World.” Meanwhile, he delivers one of the most intriguing and inimitable collaborations of the year by way of “Glass Ceiling”[feat. MacklemoreSir Mix-A-Lot, & Prometheus Brown]. Over ominous production, these four MC’s initiate a head-spinning lyrical crossfire. He gets confessional on “Pray For Me” before delivering tightly wound rhymes over stark and simple scoring on “Don’t Run” [feat. A-Trak]. Everything culminates on the title track “Reckless Endangerment” where his delicate delivery echoes above acoustic guitar and horns before the powerful refrain, “Maybe one day we can live again.

To celebrate the release, tonight Travis will take the stage at the Showbox in Seattle, WA, giving die-hard fans the first live taste of the album. ADÉ and Nyles Davis are set to join as special guests.  Recently, he revealed the details for a pair of headline gigs across coasts: he takes the stage at the Moroccan Lounge in Los Angeles on October 6 and Kitting Factory in Brooklyn, NYon October 17.  Tickets can be purchased at ambaumblvd.com.

Reckless Endangerment follows up his RUNAWAYS EP, which tallied over 20 million Spotify streams and garnered tastemaker praise. Earmilk wrote, Thompson is confident in his sound and rightfully so, this young rising rapper strapped with verbal dexterity, wide-ranging vocal control, and multisyllabic rhyme schemes. Sonically, he can be compared to a more aggressive, quirkyChance the Rapper; lyrically, he toys with a poetic variety of subjects.”

Get caught up in Reckless Endangerment with Travis Thompson—out now.

Hailing from the suburbs of Burien, WA, buzzing rapper Travis Thompson threads together emotionally charged and evocative stories with each and every rhyme. He blasted onto the mainstream radar during 2017 after earning the endorsement of fellow Pacific Northwest titanMacklemore who invited him to open up a sold-out North American tour and duet on a seminal performance during The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Capitalizing on this momentum, he rolled tape on his 13-track independent full-length YOUGOOD? and accompanying feature-length film. Appropriately, it premiered at a sold-out movie theater in his hometown. Along the way,“Need You” eclipsed 5 million Spotify streams with numerous other songs crossing the one-million mark. 2019 sees him positioned for stardom with a new deal for Epic Recordshis RUNAWAYS EP and full-length debut, Reckless Endangerment.

“…the LA-based up-and-comer continues to make impacts with every new song…” – HYPEBEAST

“…[a] soul-bearing lyricist with a bright future and an interesting backstory.” – NYLON

[September 13, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA] On the heels of crossing 50 million-plus streams, Los Angeles-based genre-bursting songwriter, singer and rapper Jez Dior uncovers two new tracks—”Don’t You Worry” and “Please Don’t Go”—today. 

Get “Don’t You Worry” HERE and “Please Don’t Go” HERE.

The songs set the stage for the impending arrival of his anticipated full-length studio debut album, Handle With Care [Epic Records], arrivingOctober 4, 2019

Bright guitar gives way to handclaps and a sweeping choir on the uplifting and undeniable “Don’t You Worry. Between a six-string lead, an empowering hook exudes stadium-size ambition as Jez reassures, “No, I won’t let go. Through the highs and low, don’t you worry, no.”

On “Please Don’t Go, his cadence slides from intense raps into a singalong chant backed by acoustic strumming. Be on the lookout for visuals to accompany both songs in the near future.

The two tracks follow a slew of previously released tracks over the past year, including “Cocaine,” which Billboard referred to as “intoxicating,” and “Nobody Knows (ft. Jackson Guthy), which became a Top 40 record at Rhythmic Radio earlier this year. Both are set to appear on the album.

Handle With Care hinges on an honest and cathartic thematic thread from top to bottom.

About the record, he commented, I’ve always used music as a form of therapy and writing Handle With Care saved my life. This album is the story of the first 27 years of my life and the difference between me joining ‘The 27 club’ and living. The name comes from the fact that this project is my entire life up until this point bundled up into something very fragile and delicate—just like me. I wrote these songs while battling depression and overwhelming anxiety, while dealing with heartbreak, death, and psychological trauma. I know that this music will speak to and help anyone going through similar situations. I can’t wait to share it with the world.”

As such, Jez Dior tells his story like never before and urges you to Handle With Care.

Reflecting grunge songcraft, hip-hop adventurousness, and disruptive pop charm, Jez Dior lifts heartache into hypnotic genre-mashing. He ignited an ever-growing following on independent projects like Scarlett SageThe Funeral, and Youthanasia. Moreover, he quietly racked up over 50 million total streams across anthems such as “Lucky Enough” [18.4 million streams], “Old No. 7” [feat. G-Eazy] [16.1 million streams],“Heroin” [9.7 million streams], and “Long Sun” [8.5 million streams] in addition to collaborating with everyone from ROME of Sublime to G-Eazyto Jackson Guthy. Beyond endorsements from ComplexNylonHypebeast, and XXL, he earned the praise of TIMEClashAlternative Press, and more in addition to gracing stages with Chance The RapperB.o.BKanye West, and J Cole. The son of iconic guitarist Steve Dior, he resurrects rock in rap’s image with a confessional call-to-action. Leading the Funeral Crew movement and imprint, Jez Dior’s uprising has just begun.

CAMILA CABELLO UNVEILS TWO NEW SONGS “SHAMELESS” & “LIAR” FROM UPCOMING SOPHOMORE ALBUM ROMANCE
CAMILA CABELLO UNVEILS TWO NEW SONGS “SHAMELESS” & “LIAR” FROM UPCOMING SOPHOMORE ALBUM ROMANCE

(September 5th, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) Today, two-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated multi-platinum and chart-topping singer/songwriter Camila Cabello shares two new singles entitled “Shameless” and “Liar.” Get them HERE via SYCO/Epic Records. Making for a momentous return by the songstress, the new songs start the era of her mega-anticipated second album, Romance. It represents her most personal music to date, drawing directly from autobiographical experiences and translating them into unforgettable songs.

These songs are basically the story of my life the past couple years and the stories I’ve accumulated – I knew for a long time I wanted my album to be called Romance because these stories are about falling in love.” – Camila Cabello

After changing her online platforms following a powerhouse turn at the MTV VMAs, Camila invited listeners into this world through a series of intensely personal social media posts. She unveiled the title in this video, unlocking her heart quite literally. In the follow-up clip, she went even deeper. Next up, she dropped a clip with the song titles, another with the artwork, and finally a teaser for the “Shameless” music video. Thus far, these teasers generated over 31 million total views and 36 million likes.

The songs similarly mirror this evolution. The emotionally charged “Shameless” showcases a seismic vocal performance from the superstar, stretching from intimate verses into an overpowering refrain over hypnotic guitar, a thick bass line, and propulsive percussion. On the other end of the spectrum, swaggering horns kick off the boisterous and bold “Liar” as it channels Latin vibes underneath the irresistible hook, “Oh no, there you go, making me a liar, I kinda like it though.

To accompany “Shameless, she revealed a sexy and stunning music video directed by Henry Scholfield [Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa & Rosalia]. Watch it HERE.

Next up, she performs for Saturday Night Live for the very first time on October 12. Be sure to tune in! Plus, she received a total of three nominations in top categories at the People’s Choice Awards on November 10 broadcast on E!. These include “Female Artist of 2019, “Song of 2019 – ‘Señorita’, and “Music Video of 2019 – ‘Señorita’.” Also, she was just revealed today as Elle’s October Music Issue cover girl.

These new solo anthems land on the heels of a summer highlighted by stratospheric success. Recently, Cabello smashed a series of records. She broke the record for “most monthly listeners for a female artist in Spotify history” with 61.2 million. Meanwhile, her GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum Billboard Hot 100 #1 megahit “Havana” [feat. Young Thug] became “the world’s most streamed song of all-time by a female lead artist. 

Just last week, Cabello shut down the MTV VMAs with the debut performance of “Señorita” with Shawn Mendes. Not only did the song soar to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, but it also stands out as “the most-streamed song of the summer on Spotify, “second fastest song in history to surpass 100 million streams on Spotify,” and “the biggest single-day debut for a male-female duet in Spotify history.” Additionally, it took home “Best Collaboration” and “Best Cinematography” at the VMAs and “Choice Summer Song” at the 2019 Teen Choice Awards. At 22-years-old, Camila is the youngest person to earn two #1s on the Hot 100 since Justin Bieber in 2017 and the youngest woman since Rihanna in 2010. “Señorita” marks her fourth #1 at Pop Radio and her second Hot 100 #1.

Speaking to the artist’s international dominance, her full-length debut, Camila, soared to #1 on iTunes in 109 markets. It also went Top 5 in 113 markets and Top 10 in 115 markets. Not to mention, it ascended to #1 worldwide in Canada, Mexico, Spain, Sweden, Norway, and the Netherlands and to the Top 3 in the UK, Finland, Australia, Ireland, Belgium, and Switzerland. 

To date, her cumulative audio streams exceed 8.8 billion and video views surpass 3.5 billion.

JIDENNA’S NEW ALBUM 85 TO AFRICA OUT NOW

The project marks the culmination of an unbelievable journey for Jidenna. Following the runaway success of his 2017 debut, The Chief, he was evicted from a rental home after the owner foreclosed without notifying him. He was scheduled to immediately begin a tour that began on the I-85 in Atlanta and ended in Johannesburg. Without a home to return to, he wound up living in cities across Africa and created this masterful soundtrack for a road trip across the Atlantic Ocean. This life-changing shift laid the groundwork for 85 TO AFRICA and what promises to be one of the most dynamic, diverse, and definitive projects of 2019.

As a prelude to this journey, also shared an album trailer. In the visual, Jidenna chronicles the events leading up to his move in honest detail before giving a snapshot of what to expect on the album and this incredible journey.
