SHARES CINEMATIC MUSIC VIDEO FOR “SAFE”

VISUAL PREMIERED ON COMPLEX EARLIER TODAY

(February 22, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – Critically acclaimed Seattle, WA rapper Travis Thompson releases his brand new RUNAWAYS EP today. 

TRAVIS THOMPSON RELEASES NEW RUNAWAYS EP TODAY

Get it HERE via AMBAUM/Epic Records.

In tandem with the project’s arrival, he shared the music video for “SAFE.” Watch it HERE! The cinematic clip hinges on a 360-degree shot of a suburban home in transition as its denizens face life’s trials and tribulations in raw, real, and relatable fashion. Airy synths and sparse production bristle against hypnotic admissions such as “I’m under too much pressure.” It all culminates on the hummable hook, “There’s a place in my head where I’m safe in my head.”

“SAFE” represents just one facet of the EP.

Elsewhere, the lead single “Eyelids” hinges on powerhouse rapping and a hyper-charged hook. “I Wish” leaps forward with nimble rhymes and bold proclamations over a synth choir. Meanwhile, “Father Forgive Me,” which already clocked 3 million-plus Spotify streams, pairs old school flourishes and new school bars. In the end, RUNAWAYS primes Thompson to really take flight like never before.

Check out the full tracklisting below.

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 titan Macklemore 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-lengthYOUGOOD? 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 Records and RUNAWAYS EP.

FEATURING THE SMASH BOP “ALL THE WAYS” AND HER VERY OWN WEDDING SONG “MARRY ME”

GLOBAL SUPERSTAR MEGHAN TRAINOR UNVEILS NEW EP THE LOVE TRAIN TODAY

(February 8, 2019 — Los Angeles, CA) — Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and whether you’re planning on smashing bae’s junk to smithereens or making out with a pint of Phish Food, you need some fresh Valentine’s Day bops to get you in the mood for L♡VE. And MEGHAN TRAINOR has got you covered with her new EP, THE LOVE TRAIN [Epic Records.]

You know you want it. And you can freakin’ get it b*tch. On all digital platforms right HERE.

Meghan’s seducing your ears this V-Day, and you know she knows a thing or two about romance. Unless your phone’s been broken for a hot minute, you know that Meghan just got married to the ginger from Spy Kids, and trust when we say, girl is feeling the love. She took a break from her busy schedule to record some fire tracks in Los Angeles alongside frequent collaborators and producers Andrew Wells [5SOS, Fall Out Boy, Jason Mraz], J KASH (Maroon 5, Charlie Puth, Kesha) and Tyler Johnson [Harry Styles, CAM].

We know you want to hear songs about all the hot newlywed sex Meghan and Daryl Sa-BAE-ra are having (did you see what we did there?). Which is why you’ll love the banging’ single “All The Ways.” Billboard was wet for “All The Ways,” calling it “another fun, danceable track to fall in love with.” And would Billboard lie to you, girl?

But perhaps the piece de resistance (that’s French for “Wig Snatch”) is “Marry Me,” a romantic acoustic guitar and ukulele-tinged Awww Fest which delivers all the feels (and then more feels). Meghan wrote the song thirty days after meeting Daryl, and it was so good that she walked down the aisle to it. We know, it’s a little bit #Vomworthy, but also, am I chopping onions right now or are those tears rolling down my face? I’m not crying, you’re crying. 

And as always, our Grammy-Winning, Diamond Single-having QUEEN didn’t just come to play — she came to slay. She’s serving vocals on the passionate, Celine Dion-esque power ballad “After You.” Plus, Meghan’s serving your insatiable thirst for dance-ready bops with the upbeat banger that is “Foolish.” It slaps so hard you’ll be stanning for days.  “As if all the PDA, including foot massages, butterfly kisses and piggy back rides aren’t cringe worthy enough, says her brother and videographer Ryan… I’ve got to film it all!”

Choo choo betch! The Love Train is leaving the station and you better get on board.

Be on the lookout for more surprises very soon as she prepares for a landmark 2019.

Tracklisting:

1.         “All The Ways”

2.         “Marry Me”

3.         “I’m Down”

4.         “After You”

5.         “Foolish”

6.         “Good Mornin’ Featuring Gary Trainor (yes, her dad)”

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.

His robust delivery glides over a stomping groove and bluesy beat before culminating on the commanding chant, “Wake up and get yourself to church, yeah!” The track embodies his effortless hybrid of American gospel, UK R&B, and ambitious, arena-ready pop. To accompany the song, he also shares an appropriately energetic lyric video.

Following its premiere on Apple Music’s Beats 1, the track cracked 1.5 million streams and 1.5 million views for the music videoEarmilk proclaimed, “The record is a rousing piece filled with slices of confessions, heartfelt realizations enhanced by angelic handclaps and a gripping chorus.” However, Vogue UK put it best, “Listening to Samm, you can’t help but have a smile on your face.

Born in London, Samm was raised by Nigerian parents, honing his love for Gospel and American soul in a church pastored by his father.  With his 2016 breakout debut ‘The Sound Experiment EP’ and its follow up ‘The Sound Experiment 2, he’s established himself as an inspiring new channeler of soul, coalescing his signature sound around filaments of pop, hip hop, gospel, and R&B.  Hand-picked by Chance the Rapper and James Bay to support their live treks, he’s also spent the past 2 years working and touring with the likes of Pharrell, Rag’n’Bone Man and Maverick Sabre before hitting the U.S. at the beginning of the summer for well-received showcases kicking off his stateside debut.

JEZ DIOR RELEASES OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR SINGLE  “NOBODY KNOWS (FEATURING JACKSON GUTHY)”
(Credit: Connor Hair)

“Dior is shaping up to be one of the most exciting voices in music, and with the release of ‘Nobody Knows,’ it’s easy to see why. Dior’s lively spirit is palpable throughout, and his signature smooth and laid-back flow is the icing on this delectable sonic cake.”– ONES TO WATCH
“…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

[January 14, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA] Today, Los Angeles-based rapper, singer and songwriter Jez Dior shares the official music video for his latest single “Nobody Knows (featuring Jackson Guthy).” Watch the music video HERE. Additionally, the song officially impacts radio today. Stream/purchase the track at all DSPs HERE via Epic Records.

Shot on location in Denver, CO and Salt Lake City, UT during Dior’s Fall 2018 tour, the video was directed byVoyager (Alex Meader andConnor Hair) and premiered earlier this morning via Complex. Dior’s most captivating visual to-date, the video showcases a more personal side to him, which perfectly complements the song’s sentiments. Featuring the story of a budding romance, the video highlights the rush of being fully spellbound by somebody. Interspersed with clips of Dior traveling on a sold-out tour, where he can’t stop thinking about his love interest, the visual showcases the highs and lows of infatuation. The concept of the video takes inspiration from Dior’s real life, representing the struggles he has dealt with in his own relationships while being a touring artist.

“’Nobody Knows’ is a love song, but not just about the glamour of being in love…” Dior tells Complex. “Relationships are hard. No matter how perfect somebody may seem to you, there will always be issues to overcome in any relationship. With the video we tried to portray that & actually shot it across two different states while I was on tour. It was definitely a different experience traveling while shooting a video… We had everything from trying to balance playing shows AND filming, to a drive-by shooting happening on location. It was a tough one, but I think it turned out to be really special.”

“Nobody Knows” is poised to anchor a breakthrough year for the genre-bending artist. Produced by Chris Wallace and Matt Rad (who have both worked with Dior on several past singles, and have credits individually across artists like Keith Urban, One Direction, Lupe Fiasco, Thirty Seconds to Mars, among others), the anthemic track is set to appear on Dior’s upcoming debut album, which is due for release later this year.

2018 saw much growth for the budding star. “Nobody Knows” follows the Summer 2018 release of singles  Cocaine,” Kiss You Good” and “Come and Go (featuring ROME),” which have received millions of streams across platforms since release and received acclaim from the likes of BillboardComplex and more. He spent the Fall on a 21-date North America tour, in support of Azizi Gibson, taking his energetic live show to venues such as Baby’s All Right in New York City and The Roxy in Los Angeles—check out a video recap of Jez on the road, performing in Boston HERE. This past summer, he opened for rapper NONAME in the U.K. and performed at the HYPE Festival in Germany.

Dior’s music has amassed over 45 million global streams overall, and in 2018 his music was streamed for over 1 million hours on Spotify alone. Now with his upcoming album, 2019 is poised to be Jez Dior’s biggest year yet. 

About Jez Dior:

A mold-breaker right out of the gate with a slew of notable mixtapes and EPs, Jez Dior has expertly threaded his hip hop and rock influences into a genre-bending aesthetic all his own. With emotive singles such as “Sober,” and “2 Birds” released to acclaim last year, and independently released projects like Scarlett SageThe Funeral and Youthanasia, he’s cleared the decks for his upcoming album that melds his honest perspective and gritty L.A. roots into new sonic heights.

Growing up in a musical family with punk rock guitar legend Steve Dior as his dad, he’s deftly absorbed his unique background and influences (from the Doors to Nirvana to Eminem and Kanye West), forging a hard-hitting identity with confessional lyrics that pull no punches. Dior’s music has drawn critical acclaim since the start, with Nylon calling him a “soul-bearing lyricist with a bright future and an interesting backstory” and Hypebeast exclaiming that “the LA-based up-and-comer continues to make impacts with every new song…” He has also received attention from the likes of Complex, TIME Magazine, Billboard, XXL, Clash, VIBE, Alternative Press and more. He possesses a riveting live show that has seen him open for the likes of Chance The Rapper, B.o.B. and most recently Noname, while sharing the stage with the likes of Kanye West, J. Cole, G-Eazy (whom he has also collaborated with) at festivals around the world and more. Dior’s catalogue is near 1 million monthly listeners on Spotify, with his 2018 summer single “Cocaine” placed on the coveted New Music Friday playlist. Along with his own music, Jez Dior runs his own imprint, Funeral Crew.

TRAVIS SCOTT CLAIMS #1 SINGLE AND ALBUM ON THE BILLBOARD CHARTS

 

Travis Scott by David LaChapelle

 

(December 3, 2018) – This week marks a monumental point in Travis Scott‘s career as the artistdominates the charts with the #1 single and album in the United States. Travis’ 2x RIAA platinum-certified “SICKO MODE” has claimed the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. This is the first time Travis Scott has topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart after peaking at #2 on the chart earlier this year upon the release of the single’s video. Additionally, Travis’ album ASTROWORLD has claimed the #1 spot again on the Billboard 200 chart this week, marking the album’s third time to achieve #1 in 2018 after occupying the top spot for two weeks upon its release on August 3rd, 2018. The combined feat of having a #1 single and album is fitting considering the banner year that Travis Scott has seen.

The achievements come on the heels of a whirlwind week that saw Scott release the Nabil-directed video for new ASTROWORLD single “YOSEMITE” featuring Gunna, share the official remix for “SICKO MODE” by Skrillex and perform two star-studded, sold out shows at New York City’s Madison Square Garden in the midst of his current “ASTROWORLD: WISH YOU WERE HERE”tour. Raved Rolling Stone of Travis’ New York City performances, “Travis Scott’s ‘Astroworld’ Tour Is the Greatest Show on Earth.” Tickets for remaining shows are available now HERE.

Additionally, ASTROWORLD being #1 this week means the album has retained a spot in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 chart for the 17th week in a row. Upon its release, the album earned the “second highest debut of the year,” and raised the bar by achieving the “biggest ever first-week streaming total for Sony Music” with 349.43 million streams worldwide. This notably marked the highest pure sales week of the year as well.

Acclaimed by Pitchfork, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and more with Travis Scott gracing the cover of GQ, this takeover paved the way for his debut Saturday Night Live performance, second MTV VMA performance, ASTROWORLD Festival in Houston during which the City of Houston proclaimed November 18th to be ASTROWORLD Day and the gargantuan “ASTROWORLD: WISH YOU WERE HERE TOUR” in 2018 and 2019.

Slick Rick & Blood Orange] completed by a wailing guitar lead. Meanwhile, “8th Grade” represents an emotional highpoint and moment of cinematic confessionalism on tape. Then, there’s the high energy bedroom jam “Stay Long Love You”[feat. Gunna] where Mariah and hip-hop’s hottest new contender lock into a hypnotic harmony. Everything culminates on the emotionally charged piano-driven “Portrait, which illuminates her everlasting range.

ZARA LARSSON ANNOUNCES HER FIRST MAJOR NORTH AMERICAN TOUR, WITH UK’s CLEAN BANDIT, OPENING MARCH 31st IN SEATTLE !

REV_ZL_SoGood_ALB_CVR_5X5_hr

(Feb. 16, 2017 – LOS ANGELES, CA) Hot on the heels of revealing the March 17th arrival of her long-awaited new album SO GOOD, jet-propelled by the title tune single “So Good” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, Epic Records/Ten’s worldwide mega-platinum sensation Zara Larsson today announces that she will kick off her first major North American tour on March 31st at the Showbox in Seattle, opening for UK electro-pop trio Clean Bandit.

The month-long, 20-city tour of the U.S. and Canada – with shows at prestigious rock venues includ­ing the Fill­more in San Francisco, Emo’s in Austin, the 9:30 Club in DC, New York’s Webster Hall, and the Paradise in Boston – wraps up May 2nd at Chicago’s House Of Blues. (Please see dates below.)

Zara’s “So Good” VIDEO premiered February 3rd at VEVO, where she has over 1.2 billion views, and over 3 million subscribers. The clip has generated nearly 7 million YouTube views to date. On February 7th, Zara (with Ty) intro­duced the song on TV when she returned to Ellen; view that live performance HERE. On March 22nd, Zara will appear on ABC’s Good Morning America!

19-year old 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 producer/artist 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 at the UEFA Euro 2016 Opening & Closing Ceremonies, 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, Zara delivered a show-stopping performance at the MTV EMAs in the Nether­lands, where she took home awards for Best New Act and Best Swedish Worldwide 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 was nominated for Best New Artist at last night’s 2017 NME Awards; and for British Single of the Year and British Video for “Girls Like” at the upcoming 2017 BRIT Awards (February 22nd). Earlier this month, Zara was nominated for Favorite Global Music Star at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, taking place at the L.A. Forum on March 11th.

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.”
