SHARES NABIL-DIRECTED “YOSEMITE” VIDEO FEATURING GUNNA

IN MIDST OF “ASTROWORLD: WISH YOU WERE HERE” TOUR 

 

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.

BROTHER LEO SHARES NEW SINGLE “PUSH UP” TODAY

brother leo news slider

DEBUT EP COMING SOON 

(November 16, 2018 – Los Angeles, CA)Brother Leo—the alter ego of GRAMMY® Award-nominated Swedish singer, songwriter, and producer Ola Svensson—returns with a new single entitled “Push Up” today. Get it HERE via Epic Records.

 

A bold, brazen, and boisterous anthem, it struts forward on a thick beat and hypnotic horns before his show-stopping delivery takes the spotlight. The chant, “Push up on me, feels like the ultimate invitation to cut loose and party with the buzzing talent.

 

Watch out for the music video’s premiere very soon!

 

The song arrives on the heels of his Fatboy Slim-produced summer single “Strangers On An Island. Within a few months’ time, it clocked 2 million-plus streams and 1.7 million views and counting. Additionally, it inspired the adoration of tastemakers. NME described it as “A gorgeous, laid-back slice of pop magic,” and Wonderland claimed, “You’ll be wanting to direct your attention to the surreal, but mesmerizing visuals for Brother Leo’s Strangers On An Island.

 

Both songs precede the release of his forthcoming debut EP, coming very soon.

 

“Push Up” on Brother Leo now!

 

Named after Svensson’s more confident and free childhood imaginary twin, Brother Leo officially made his worldwide debut in 2018. The dynamic nature of the music aligns with his rather unbelievable story. Long before his emergence as Brother Leo, mom forced her son born Ola to participate in boys’ choir and take piano lessons when all he “really cared about was football.” At only 17, he played professional soccer for former UEFA-cup team Trelleborgs FF. After singing during a school function, friends clamored for him to audition for Pop Idol. Despite his reluctance, he ended up landing a deal in his native Sweden as a result. Unlocking a quirky, clever, and catchy signature style, Ola achieved a string of number ones off the back of his Swedish debut before making his bones as an in-demand songwriter with cuts for gnash, Hailee Steinfeld, Akon, and more under his given name. He assumed the identity of Brother Leo in 2018 and began writing and recording with Mark Ralph [Clean Bandit, Years & Years, Jax Jones], Coffee [Rihanna, Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber], Dan Grech [Lana Del Rey, Liam Gallagher, George Ezra], and more.

About Kodie Shane:

One of Atlanta’s freshest and fiercest voices, Kodie Shane has quickly become a unanimous fan and critical favorite. She offers a fresh take on Hip Hop and Pop, with tightly-wound rhymes, clever lyrics and ear-worm melodies over buoyant, genre-blurring beats that have become her calling card. Across 2016 and 2017, she made a name for herself by serving up a series of hits and critically adored projects. 2016’s debut EP Zero Gravity includes the fan-favorite “Sad” [feat. Lil Yachty], which generated millions of Spotify streams, followed by the runaway success of “Drip On My Walk.” Shane spent 2017 creating even more music, with the ten-track Big Trouble Little Jupiter mixtape and seven-track Back From The Future EP.

 

Across her releases, the artist has garnered praise from The Fader, Pitchfork, Complex, Noisey, Vogue, Pigeons and Planes, Paper, Nylon, W Magazine, Interview Magazine, Mass Appeal and more, with Billboard recently calling her one of 2018’s biggest Pop Stars to watch. Most recently, she covered Teen Vogue’s coveted 21 Under 21 Most Influential issue and Galore’s Spring 2018 Music issue. The budding star has also drawn rave reviews on the stage, having spent much of the past few years on the road, headlining shows around the world as well as opening for the likes of Lil Yachty, Lil Uzi Vert, The Internet, Jhené Aiko, Snakehips, Billie Eilish and more.  With Young HeartThrob, Kodie Shane has become the most exciting new artist to watch in 2018.

SADE RELEASES NEW MUSIC “THE BIG UNKNOWN”, REVEALS OFFICIAL LYRIC VIDEO AVAILABLE NOW

Sade widows press release

(November 9th, 2018 – Los Angeles, CA) – Sade releases a new original song entitled “The Big Unknown” from academy award winning British director Steve McQueen’s latest film, Widows.

 

The song is HERE via Sony Music Entertainment.

 

Widows, from Twentieth Century Fox, Regency Enterprises and See-Saw Films, is a feature-length adaptation of the UK television series of the same name. It opened in theatres across the UK on 6th November 2018.

 

Sade wrote “The Big Unknown” specifically for Widows’ final scene. Over a series of conversations with Sade, Steve McQueen encouraged her to dig deep within to write a song about loss and survival. The song “The Big Unknown” speaks to the film’s spirit, but upholds the classic hallmarks of her sound, and stands out as another bold and brilliant work from the legendary songstress.

 

In a recent Los Angeles Times interview McQueen was quoted: “It was an honour to work with such a legend. Sade is an incomparable talent and incredible artist who so rarely releases new material, but luckily the original series of Widows had deeply resonated with her.”

 

“The Big Unknown” lyric video features McQueen’s cool contemporary Chicago scenes as a beautiful backdrop to lead character Veronica’s (Viola Davis) contemplation of a future unknown, and the dark times that led to that moment.

 

The Widows’ Original Motion Picture soundtrack album features Sade’s “The Big Unknown” and Nina Simone’s “Wild Is The Wind” alongside an intimate score by Academy® Award winner Hans Zimmer. The Widows’ soundtrack is on sale digitally on 9 November worldwide, in stores on CD on 30 November, and premium vinyl on 28 December 2018 on Milan Records.

 

Commanding high praise from all genres of the global musical landscape, Sade continues to redefine and remain culturally relevant.

 

Sade’s six studio albums have amassed a cool 70 million worldwide sales. Sade’s last album “Soldier of Love” charted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, and the title track garnered a GRAMMY® Award, earning countless critical plaudits and accolades.

 

“The Big Unknown” was composed by Sade Adu and Ben Travers, and produced by Sade, Ben Travers and Aaron Taylor Dean.

USA Release: 16 November 2018

From Academy Award®-winning director Steve McQueen (12 YEARS A SLAVE) and co-writer and bestselling author Gillian Flynn (GONE GIRL) comes a blistering, modern-day thriller set against the backdrop of crime, passion and corruption. WIDOWS is the story of four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands’ criminal activities. Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, tensions build when Veronica (Oscar® winner Viola Davis), Linda (Michelle Rodriguez), Alice (Elizabeth Debicki) and Belle (Cynthia Erivo) take their fate into their own hands and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.  WIDOWS also stars Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Robert Duvall, Daniel Kaluuya, Lukas Haas, and Brian Tyree Henry.

12-TRACK PROJECT INCLUDES SOUGHT-AFTER MUSIC
SPANNING THE ACCLAIMED BAND’S CAREER THUS FAR

(October 26, 2018 – Los Angeles, CA) – Today, multi-platinum alternative rock band CHEVELLE releases 12 Bloody Spies: B-Sides and Rarities, a comprehensive compilation of sought-after B-Sides and rarities. The album contains music from 2002-2016, spanning their acclaimed career and remastered on one brand new collection for the very first time. Get it HERE!

Known for having one of the most devoted fan bases in rock, the band sent a letter to 12 lucky fans last month announcing the project and unlocking the first track from the coveted collection, “Sleep Walking Elite,” which was originally recorded during the sessions for their 2007 album Vena Sera.  Thick, driving riffs propel the track, providing the perfect counterpoint to a hauntingly hypnotic hook and making it a quintessential CHEVELLE offering. The new album also includes another song from the Vena Sera period, “In Debt To The Earth,” which builds with signature Chevelle intensity and is emblematic of the passionate and diverse tracks contained in the full collection.  12 Bloody Spies: B-Sides and Rarities serves up everything from an acoustic version of “Sleep Apnea” off 2009’s Sci-Fi Crimes to an unearthed bonus track, “Until You’re Reformed,” from their second album, their 2002 major label debut, the now-classic Wonder What’s Next.  Also included is the riveting “A Miracle,” a song they recorded as a bonus track for their most recent album, 2016’s The North Corridor, which continued to explore the band’s heavier inclinations.

One of the most creatively fearless bands in hard rock, Chevelle’s 12 Bloody Spies: B-Sides and Rarities reveals a treasure trove of under-the-radar ‘finds’ and hidden gems, as well as other enlightening musical detours that deserve to be considered alongside Chevelle’s incomparable body of work.

Check out the full tracklisting for 12 Bloody Spies: B-Sides and Rarities below.

JESSIE JAMES DECKER RELEASES UPLIFTING NEW HOLIDAY ALBUM ‘ON THIS HOLIDAY’

JJD slider

(October 26, 2018 – Los Angeles, CA) Today, Country pop singer/songwriter Jessie James Decker releases her inspired new holiday album On This Holiday, comprised of timeless holiday favorites powerfully enlivened by the country superstar, as well as stylish new holiday classics. Get it HERE! The new album also features the spirited original, “Baby! It’s Christmas,” which captures Jessie at her vocal best, belting out a radiant tapestry of homespun holiday scenes affectionately unfurled to kick off this Christmas season!

 

The 10-track album (an additional track “My Favorite Holiday” is available exclusively via Target CD purchases) finds Jessie displaying both her countrified command of the holiday repertoire and her ability to put her trademark vocal notches on some of the season’s best loved treasures. Among the tracks are “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” with its infectious-retro backbeat complementing Jessie’s joyful embrace of the song, “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire),” Jessie giving it a slightly more up tempo pacing completed by twangy guitars and her authentic down-home vocal that sets it apart from other renditions. The sultry “Santa Baby” coos and carouses, while the Jessified “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” finds the star strutting her stuff around the evergreen and earning a place alongside Brenda Lee’s definitive version of the holiday staple. “Wonderful Day,” is another original gem with Jessie vocally capturing memorable snapshots of the season. Her plaintive “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” achingly rises to the song’s heartfelt sentiment, with the Latin-tinged “Christmas In Cabo” destined to become a classic holiday getaway song.

 

To celebrate the release, Jessie will be performing a holiday-themed show at City Winery in Nashville on December 5. The intimate performance will feature special guests and showcase the diverse songs from her Epic Records holiday debut album. Fans can purchase tickets to the show HERE! Jessie has also been announced as part of the star-studded lineup for the 2019 Stagecoach Music Festival, held in Indio, CA next spring. The 13th edition of the annual California fest will take place from April 26-28, with Jessie taking the stage on Saturday, April 27.

 

Jessie’s holiday album launch follows a busy autumn for the charismatic star. Recently, the spotlight has been on her rollicking new single “Boots,” which was featured in Just Fab’s fall campaign starring Decker, who recently teamed up with the online retailer for a boot-focused collaboration. She also released a gorgeously illustrated lifestyle book this month, Just Jessie, My Guide to Love, Life, Family, and Food, which arrived as a New York Times Best Seller. The book offers never-before-revealed personal moments and a wider glimpse of her amazing journey. Welcomed by her fans for its embrace of family and Jessie’s openness about real life topics, she was also featured on Good Morning America talking about the new book, as well as hosted 2018 American Music Awards red carpet pre-show which was streamed live.

 

Singer, songwriter, TV personality, fashion designer, beauty and lifestyle influencer/entrepreneur, Jessie James Decker has emerged as a multi-platform juggernaut the past five years, juggling fashion brands like her personally designed Kittenish line, successfully partnering with a leading makeup brand, and co-starring in her own hit reality show Eric & Jessie: Game On, on E!, alongside her husband, retired football star Eric Decker. But it’s her passion for music that has made the multi-talented artist one of country music’s true breakout firebrands. The singer’s authentic style immediately captivated listeners everywhere on her 2009 self-titled debut, which yielded the gold-certified single “Wanted.” 2016’s Gold soared to #1 on iTunes Top Country Albums chart and took #5 on the Billboard Current Country Albums Chart. Hitting the road, she sold out every date of her tour. In 2017, her powerful live Blackbird Sessions EP clinched #2 on iTunes Top Country Albums Chart and #6 on the Overall Top Albums Chart. She was also tapped to host the Red Carpet at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards in addition to landing features from the Los Angeles TimesDU JourPeopleRolling StonePop SugarE!Access HollywoodUS Weekly, and more. She continued to keep it real with her Epic Records debut album, Southern Girl City Lights. Her second studio album, the release went live as the #1 Country Album on iTunes and arrived as a chart-topping entry on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, Decker’s first #1 on that platform.

The inspiring siren pulls no punches, with a rousing chorus amped up by soaring harmonies and scalding verses as the righteously feisty Decker warns all tongue-waggers to beware: ‘I hear ‘em talking…but talking ain’t the same as walking a mile in my boots…,’ Jessie rocking with both barrels of her trademark country firepower!

 

The spirited “Boots” has all the signature attributes of yet another hit from the down-to-earth artist. It’s been nearly a year since she shared new music, coming off the successful cycle of last autumn’s Epic Records debut album, Southern Girl City Lights, her second studio album. The release went live as the #1 Country Album on iTunes and arrived as a chart-topping entry on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, Decker’s first #1 on that platform.

“Swizz Beatz is over two decades in and still going in. After producing hit after hit for a who’s who of artists over the years,

the Bronx veteran puts himself on the main stage once again with his new Poison album.”

-XXL

“’Poison’ features the illest. The veteran producer’s execution behind the keyboard is legendary,

and a long list of artists can attribute their success to Swizz Beatz’s ear for hit records.”

-HNHH

“Swizz Beatz coaxed something new out of Young Thug on ’25 Soldiers’; Poison is largely a classicist’s affair.”
