LIZA OWEN SHARES FIRST SOLO SINGLE “WHY AREN’T WE HAVING SEX?”

(July 10, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – After amassing cuts for some of the world’s biggest stars as a songwriter, Liza Owen steps into the spotlight with her debut single “Why Aren’t We Having Sex?”

Get it HERE via Epic Records.

On the track, a dirty bass groove and slick beat give way to a hook highlighted by the most pervasive quarantine question of all, “Why aren’t we having sex?” Her sultry voice takes flight as she delivers an empowered and engaging anthem that’s as flirty and fun as it is fiery. Meanwhile, the music video emanates the same amount of heat. Liza transfixes in a wedding dress and white cowboy hat as the visual intercuts various couples asking and acting on the title’s question. Liza enlisted the help of her friends to make cameos including PRETTYMUCH’s Edwin Horonet and fellow songwriting powerhouse Ali Tamposi.

Flaunt Magazine exclusively premiered the video earlier today and spoke with Liza about the song. Watch the video now HERE.

“I wrote ‘Why Aren’t We Having Sex? ‘ a few hours after checking into the most ridiculously sexy house I’ve ever stayed in,” said Liza. “It felt like a ‘70s James Bond villa. With the mood being just right, the light just right and the drinks flowing…Isn’t that the question on everyone’s mind?”

“Why Aren’t We Having Sex?” might just be the ultimate post-lockdown anthem.

Get ready for more from Liza Owen very soon!

Liza Owen spins pop upside down and all around with unfiltered lyrics, undeniable melodies, and unapologetic spirit. Of Cambodian descent, she originally hails from the English countryside. Breaking into the business, she initially lent her sharp lyricism to the likes of Selena Gomez and BTS as a songwriter. While on a recent writing retreat in Palm Springs with her key collaborators who also happen to be her best friends, she envisioned and enacted her next chapter, building a launchpad for a solo project. As if guided by serendipity, she stumbled upon a pink neon sign with the words, “Why Aren’t We Having Sex?” and used it to illuminate a Studio 54-themed party she hosted. Those words seeped into the concept of her first bold and bright banger “Why Aren’t We Having Sex?” Now, she has all the makings of a smart and subversive star.

ZARA LARSSON RELEASES NEW SINGLE & MUSIC VIDEO “LOVE ME LAND”

(July 10, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – The pop superheroine the world needed returns right now…

Today, multiplatinum artist, singer, songwriter, and activist Zara Larsson is back with a new single and music video entitled “Love Me Land.Get it HERE via TEN/Epic Records. This marks her first release of 2020.

On the track, an orchestral warbling chant rings out as she announces, “Here I am, lost in ‘Love Me Land’. It flows right into a sexy bass line that reverberates under strings and her ecstatic falsetto before she urges, “Touch me in the way that you do, no matter who’s in the room, I see you sweating. Co-written with the powerhouse team of Justin Tranter and Julia Michaels [Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Dua Lipa], the song integrates elements of discoball-ready Swedish pop into future-facing R&B. 

Meanwhile, the music video matches the heat as she dances solo in a sparse cube straight out of a sci-fi fantasy. Tune in HERE at 7am PST/10am EST to watch the premiere!

About the single, she shared, “I wrote ‘Love Me Land’ with my friends Justin and Julia after a long period of writing for my sophomore international album. It felt like a kind of ‘eureka’ moment in understanding the journey I’ve gone on in discovering what it is to be a woman and an artist. The song is about accidentally falling in love but owning it, and I think that combines two things I love and do well – female empowerment and pop bangers! At the moment, we’re all experiencing this scary unknown world and having to endure some hard realities; I hope this can provide a little escapism for everyone, because sometimes dancing can solve everything, even just for a moment.”  

The song paves the way for the arrival of her anxiously awaited second international album and what promises to be one of the biggest pop blockbusters of the year. Get ready…

Her growing catalog boasts one smash after another, including the triple-platinum “Never Forget You” with MNEK, the platinum “Lush Life” and “Ain’t My Fault, and, most recently, 2019’s gold “Ruin My Life. Out of dozens of nominations, she has received various awards and honors at the Swedish Grammi AwardsNickelodeon Kids’ Choice AwardsMTV EMAs, and more. Gracing the stage of the 2017 Nobel Prize Peace Concert, she performed the platinum “Symphony” with collaborators Clean Bandit. Emerging from lockdown in 2020 with a fierce, focused, and feminine fire, Zara arrives with a bold and boundary breaking body of work for her second international album.

On the track, which was produced by C.J. Plays, he bobs and weaves between fluttering bars and entrancing melodies before serving up a soaring refrain.

Embracing sobriety, he put his head down and immersed himself in his craft. During 2019, he made waves with the Pink Cloud EP. The project attracted plugs from BossipElicit MagazineBeyond the Stage Magazine, and Variancewho dubbed it, “a welcome appetizer.” As the follow-up single “88 Floors” racked up 280K YouTube views within a few months, he signed to Epic and leapt ahead creatively once again with his 2020 single “I Am.

KILLY AND PRODUCER Y2K TEAM UP FOR NEW SINGLE “OH NO”

“This ain’t like last time

This is the last time”

(July 10 — Los Angeles, CA) KILLY continues his quest for world dominance today with the release of his new single, “OH NO,” featuring production from Y2K (known for viral hits like “Lalala” with bbno$ and “No Sad No Bad” with KILLY). The uplifting breakup anthem, driven by soothing guitar strums and 808s that are just as active as they are addictive, provides another catchy yet nostalgic offering for new listeners and fans alike.

Get “OH NO” HERE via Epic Records.

“Hate to say, but I feel like it might be time for us both to move on,” sings KILLY, nearly reaching a wail, as he laments the difficult but necessary end of what’s been a rocky romantic relationship. The sentiment seems to align with his knack for collecting accolades and moving on… 

This year started with a 4th JUNO nomination for his sophomore project Light Path 8, followed by the release of the heavily-anticipated and sonically advanced track “Sailor Moon” as well the video for his trap-lullaby “Drought” with 16yrold. His growing catalogue habitually displays his versatility and emphasizes his staying power, as he introduces us to the next chapter of his ascent.

“OH NO” packed with mainstream appeal and brimming with emotion, has the qualities fans have come to expect from his music, including instant replay value and the distinct ability to evoke euphoria.

Later this month, KILLY will bring “OH NO” to life with the help of creative director Ryder Ripps (making his  directorial debut), known for his work with Kanye West, Travis Scott, and most recently art direction for the late Pop Smoke’s posthumous debut album.

About KILLY:

If alien means belonging elsewhere, perhaps KILLY is someone who belongs everywhere. The shy rockstar finds himself at home in the eclectic and the contradictory, effortlessly pairing petaled shirts and spiked glasses, suturing vulnerable lyrics to heavy, sinister instrumentals. Born in 1997 to Bajan and Filipino parents in Toronto, Khalil Tatem was painted by a mosaic of influences from a young age, from Kanye West to Speaker Knockerz to Tommy Lee Sparta.

During high school, he rooted himself into the community and nurtured “Killamonjaro” for two long years. His ascendance felt lightspeed as he independently released his debut project Surrender Your Soul, garnered multiple platinum and gold singles, and took to the road for a world tour. After two years on the road, he tethered stories across time and space from his journey in his project Light Path 8. This was followed by his connection with Epic Records. With this partnership, he continues to cultivate each track with the same care as “Killamonjaro.” Privileging quality over quantity, he fine-tunes each project with meticulous precision, elusively hinting to fans at what’s to come. Even with numerous accolades to his name, he’s just getting started.

If KILLY is an alien, he’s one who can use his diverse upbringing to weave himself anywhere—one whose legacy is already written in the stars.

RENCE RELEASES NEW SINGLE “SOMETIMES THINGS JUST FALL APART” TODAY   OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO OUT NOW

“One artist to keep an eye on very closely in 2020.” – Wonderland  

“There are some artists who don’t want anyone knowing who they truly are, but Rence’s openness is one of the best qualities he possesses as a musician… Rence is consistently killing it and you don’t want to miss it.” – Lyrical Lemonade 

(June 26, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – Maintaining momentum with one anthem after another, genre-defying singer, songwriter, and producer Rence uncovers a new single and music video entitled “Sometimes Things Just Fall Apart” today. Get the song HERE via Epic Records and watch the official video HERE.

Regarding the track, Rence commented, “This song is about coming to terms with what is out of your control. I’d been trying so desperately to figure out why one thing or another didn’t go my way, and I was struggling with these big questions of purpose and fulfillment. This song is the remedy—sometimes, things are just gonna fall apart no matter how hard you try, and that is OK.

“Sometimes Things Just Fall Apart” pairs his delicate delivery with soft solo acoustic guitar. As the strings squeak, his voice slips into a heavenly harmony with the admission, “Sometimes things just fall apart, and you never know, how they’ll go. Directed by Daniel Jordan K of buzzing music video and media collective Overcast, the accompanying visual opens with Rence in a pool surrounded by Polaroids. Emerging from submersion and into the sunlight, the clip follows his journey to the tip of a mountain and acceptance under gorgeous blue skies. It might just be his most inspiring video yet. The visual premiered earlier today via TMRW Magazine, who said, “The uplifting track with an earworm chorus that won’t get out of your head long after you’ve listened is one of Rence’s best singles yet.”

Sometimes Things Just Fall Apart” arrives on the heels of his latest single “Tears In December, which has already racked up close to 800,000 streams. EARMILK described it as “a sincerely reflective song” and claimed, ‘Tears In December seems like it had to be made, and listeners should be glad it was.” Meanwhile, Hollywood Life highlighted how “Rence spins a tale of heartbreak and regret.” However, Lyrical Lemonade put it best, calling “Tears In December” “a song you NEED to listen to before the day is over.

Rence continues to consistently deliver and affirm his status as one of the most exciting new artists to watch of 2020. He recently teamed up with Alex Porat on “happy for you,” with 100% of proceeds from the release going towards the organizations Color of Change and The CEE Centre For Young Black Professionals over the next two months. Earlier this year, he joined forces with Johan Lenox for “i need a vacation.” Meanwhile, his solo releases this year continue to shine with “hate u btw” clocking close to 1 million streams as “Type 2” hits the 1.4 million mark. Notably, Lyrical Lemonade claimed, ‘Type 2’ is the perfect example of why Rence is one of the most promising vocalists in the music industry right now.

Capitalizing on the momentum sparked by the release of his Fall 2019 EP, Rence has received much acclaim and accolades. Pigeons & Planes named him among  “Best New Artists” while his breakout single “Expensive” [feat. Noah Cyrus] recently surpassed 6 million global streams. Having wrapped a North American tour with Christian French this Winter, Rence has gone on to received looks and acclaim from the likes of Nylon, i-D, The FADER, BillboardPaper and more.

“Sometimes Things Just Fall Apart, but at least we’ve got Rence.

About Rence:

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. He introduced himself on the breakthrough independent project, Pink. The lead single “Baby Blue” racking up nearly 10 million streams. 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.  Signing to Epic RecordsRence’s 2019 single “Expensive” [feat. Noah Cyrus] made waves and turned heads right out of the gate receiving looks from NylonBillboard, and Paper. The song now has over 6 million global streams, while the music video has amassed over 800K 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 showed no signs of slowing down with his major label debut EP FALL 2019 and consistent output continued in 2020 with the bold and buzz-y “hate u, btw,” “Type 2,” “Tears in December,” and now “Sometimes Things Just Fall Apart.”

DELILAH MONTAGU RELEASES DEBUT SINGLE  “VERSION OF ME”

Temptation will cut to the core of anyone who’s experienced unrequited love, its poetry direct and shattering

” – Vulture (New York Magazine)

“With a rich, mellow vocal range and influences from Carole King to Father John Misty, Montagu is staking a strong claim to the storied tradition of confessional balladeers” – British GQ

“Shades of Joni Mitchell and Florence Welch on the Londoner’s new track [Temptation], a lovely, plaintive, piano-led lament” – The Sunday Times Culture

(Los Angeles– June 26, 2020) – 22 year old critically acclaimed London based artist  Delilah Montagu arrives today with her highly anticipated debut single Version Of Me, a fearless autobiographical story of self-discovery, out now on EPIC Records. Stream HERE on all digital platforms.

Watch the official video for Version Of Me HERE.

Prior to the arrival of the global pandemic we all now find ourselves a part of, Delilah took herself to Los Angeles where she sparked a connection with producer Robin Hannibal (Rhye, Kendrick Lamar, Anderson .Paak). Here, with the confidence of Robin, she learned how to express and completely own her story for the very first time; an amalgamation which transferred beautifully to this new set of music Delilah finds herself ready to share with the world today.

Speaking about Version Of Me Delilah said, “It’s about wanting to be your true self, but not knowing who that is, or what that looks like. I’ve been trying for so long to find the right words, the right time, and the right way to say how I feel, but when you’re questioning yourself that can be a terrifying reality to articulate. I’m so proud of this song and hope that maybe it can bring others the solace it’s given me.

Of the video Delilah said, “I loved making the music video too, with four of my closest friends and favourite female artists’. Florence Kosky created it and I love that my girlfriend made the art and took the photo of me for the single cover, on my childhood bed in my mums home.”

ABOUT Delilah Montagu

Inspired by artists such as Leonard CohenCarole KingBon Iver, Billie Eilish, Lizzo and James Blake, Delilah is today finding complete power in her own voice as she unashamedly shares her love for her girlfriend online, takes the reins on the creative processes and becomes the driving force in her relationships. And, having battled addiction, heartbreak and shame in the past, Delilah hopes that perhaps her newfound honest vulnerability might help others eradicate their own fears too.

It was during the release of the critically acclaimed In Gold EP last year when Delilah was at her worst; who was she? What was she trying to say? Quite simply, she had lost her voice. “I never really told the truth to anyone”, she sings on Version Of Me, a line that might have been true at the time, but today is defunct, as Delilah emerges more emboldened, self-assured and a more urgent songwriter than ever before.

Where In Gold introduced Delilah with its pensive, soulful rumination on coming-of-age, the new music sees Delilah mature dramatically both as a songwriter and as a person. And, reeling from her recent performance of Drive (a collaboration with Black Coffee, which is the #1 most streamed domestic single on Spotify ever in South Africa) at the online Global Citizen concert, organised by WHO in collaboration with Lady Gaga in response to COVID-19, Delilah’s ambition is unstoppable.

FIRST ALBUM IN FIVE YEARS, LAMB OF GOD, OUT NOW

LAMB OF GOD REVEALS NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO FOR “GEARS” + NEW ALBUM AVAILABLE TODAY

(June 19, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – LAMB OF GOD is marking the release of their highly anticipated eponymous album, available today via Epic Records, with a video for the album’s fourth single, “Gears.”

Watch “Gears” now at http://lamb-of-god.com.

In addition to the “Gears” video, lyric videos for five of the album’s tracks are also available today at https://lambofgod.lnk.to/LOG/youtube.

“The day has finally arrived! We are absolutely thrilled to be releasing our new, self-titled album today. We’re all so proud of this collection of songs and feel like they rival some of our best work. As a band, we have a reawakened energy and a renewed creative spark that is evident in these songs and pulses through the entire album. Everyone involved in this project is beyond anxious for the world to hear it. We hope you enjoy it and we thank you for your support!” – Mark Morton 

Guitarist Mark Morton will host a Lamb Of God Twitter listening party tonight with Newbury Comics at 7 p.m. EDT. Follow along on Twitter using the hashtag #LambOfGodXNewbury.

The fact that the band’s eighth studio effort would warrant ‘self-titled’ status is a testament to the band’s pride and satisfaction with these songs and this period in their creativity.

A true collaboration between all members of the band, LAMB OF GOD’s eighth studio album is an amalgam of each individual’s contributions, blended to create a singular style. Guitarists Mark Morton and Willie Adler fuel the album with a mountain of riffs, taking what Lamb of God are known for, and unbelievably, upping the ante to new levels. The rhythm section of John Campbell, looming large as a rhythmic shadow, and drummer Art Cruz, who makes his studio debut with LAMB OF GOD here on this record, underpin the proceedings with passion, sweat and expansive dynamics. Vocalist D. Randall Blythe is as angry, insightful, and informed as ever. Never one to shrink from facing the darker aspects of our nature head-on, Blythe delivers with no punches pulled, and as only he and Lamb of God can in 2020.

Audiences got a taste of the first new LAMB OF GOD music in nearly five years with “Checkmate” back in February, followed by “Memento Mori” and the most recent single, “New Colossal Hate.” All four songs will appear on Lamb Of God, the follow-up to VII: Sturm und Drang (2015). The album was once again produced by collaborator Josh Wilbur (GojiraKornMegadethTrivium), fueled by a mountain of riffs and looming rhythmic shadows. It is also the band’s first record with Cruz, who sat behind the kit with LAMB OF GOD in 2018 and became an official member the following year. In addition to Chuck Billy, the new album features a guest appearance from Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed). Blythe sounds more driven and insightful than ever on Lamb Of God, offering up the angriest and most comprehensive diatribes, addressing modern life in the current landscape, of his storied career thus far. 

Lamb Of God tracklisting:

1. Memento Mori

2. Checkmate 

3. Gears

4. Reality Bath

5. New Colossal Hate

6. Resurrection Man

7. Poison Dream (feat. Jamey Jasta)

8. Routes (feat. Chuck Billy) 

9. Bloodshot Eyes

10. On The Hook

LAMB OF GOD propelled heavy metal into the new millennium two decades ago with the prophetically titled New American Gospel. They followed with 2003’s As the Palaces Burn, which made the Rolling Stone list of the Top 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time. Ashes of the Wake (2004) was the first LAMB OF GOD album to be certified gold by the RIAA, followed by Sacrament (2006), which debuted in Billboard’s Top 10. Wrath (2009) earned the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hard Rock, Rock, and Tastemaker charts and was No. 2 on the Billboard 200. Those No. 1 positions were repeated with Resolution (2012). VII: Sturm und Drang (2015) debuted at No. 3 in North America and in the Top 5 in several countries. The single “512” from VII: Sturm und Drang received a Grammy nod for the “Best Metal Performance,” making it LAMB OF GOD’s fifth Grammy nomination.

In 2020, LAMB OF GOD is re-energized and unrelenting, ready to lay claim to the metal throne.

LAMB OF GOD is:

D. Randall Blythe – Vocals 

Mark Morton – Guitar 

Willie Adler – Guitar 

John Campbell – Bass 

Art Cruz – Drums

Abrams’ production company, Bad Robot – and Epic Records, the track stands out as the official theme song from the forthcoming Apple original series, Little Voice, debuting globally Friday July 10, 2020, on Apple TV+.

Her delicate piano playing drives this bold and bright ballad. She carries the verses with intention and inspiration before delivering an engaging and empowering promise, “If you’re listening, sometimes a little voice can say the biggest things.” 

This marks Sara’s first new music since the 2019 arrival of her fifth full-length album, Amidst The Chaos. Generating widespread acclaim, Variety noted, “[it] establishes that there’s no one in contemporary pop better at flexing mezzo-soprano sensitivity and social empathy like a muscle. It’s the perfect album for anyone who could use a little fierce snowflake pride.” The album features stand out tracks “A Safe Place to Land” featuring John Legend, as well as “Saint Honesty,” which won a Grammy® Award for “Best American Roots Performance.” Additionally, on the Amidst The Chaos Tour, she took the stage at iconic venues such as Madison Square Garden and The Hollywood Bowl.

Stay tuned for more from Sara Bareilles soon.

Her book, “Sounds Like Me: My Life (So Far) in Song,” was released in the fall of 2015 by Simon & Schuster and is a New York Times best seller. Making her Broadway debut, Sara composed the music and lyrics for “Waitress,” and made her Broadway acting debut in 2017 by stepping into the shows lead role. On April 5, 2019 Sara released her fifth full-length and first album of original material since 2013, entitled “Amidst The Chaos.” For this latest body of work, she joined forces in the studio with legendary Academy® Award-winning producer T Bone Burnett.  As a result, the album spotlights her voice as a singer and storyteller like never before, while making an enduring statement.

TYLA YAWEH UNLEASHES NEW SINGLE & MUSIC VIDEO “TOMMY LEE” FEATURING POST MALONE

“[One of 2020’s] Biggest Rising Talents In Hollywood.” – Wall Street Journal Magazine

“Yaweh has quickly emerged as the brightest newcomer among hip-hop’s current crop…” – NME’s The NME 100: Essential new artists for 2020

(JUNE 12, 2020 – LOS ANGELES, CA) – Reaching for next level rock superstardom on his own terms, rising genre-defying force and one of 2020’s most exciting breaking artists, Tyla Yaweh returns with a brand new single entitled “Tommy Lee” featuring Post Malone today.

Get the song HERE via London Entertainment/Epic Records. Along with the track, Tyla also premiered the official music video. Watch it HERE.

Right out of the gate, propulsive production revs up behind Tyla on the track. He croons an unshakable and undeniable chant, “Living life like a Rockstar, pulling up stretch limousines. Between these hypnotic hooks, Post drops his own quotable lines such as “Pulling up wit a drum like I’m Tommy Lee.  The video finds Tyla cruising through fields on an ATV, flanked by Post. The two then transfer to a stretch limo, as they trade bars on the fluidly melodic track while cruising the modern frontier. Shot on location in Utah, it showcases the new definition of a rockstar lifestyle, one that Tyla Yaweh not only embodies but has carried through his career up to the arrival of his upcoming album RAGER BØY, a project as diverse as the man who created it, coming soon.

In anticipation of the release of new music, Tyla has partnered up with Beats By Dre for RAGER BØY TV. Through a series of episodes, Tyla will give an inside look at his world as he gets ready to launch his new album. Watch the first episode HERE, where he gives a tour of his place, Cribs­-style, and offers a sneak peek at what he’s cooking up for this year. Additionally, Tyla has partnered with Monster Energy for an explosive virtual concert as part of the brand’s “Monster Energy Outbreak Presents Live On Location” series. Launching later this month, it will showcase the first official live performance of “Tommy Lee,” plus some of his biggest songs to-date. 

Tyla released his debut project Heart Full Of Rage last year, which included the break-out single “High Right Now.” A subsequent remix of the track featuring Wiz Khalifa and further singles “I Think I Luv Her” ft. YG and “Understand Me” catapulted the budding star to nearly 250 million global streams. He spent all of 2019 and early 2020 on the road on a sold-out global arena tour with Post Malone and Swae Lee, among others, and made rousing appearances as festivals such as Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Gov Ball, Firefly, Life Is Beautiful, Rolling Loud, Reading and Leeds and more. He further collaborated with names like French Montana, Ski Mask The Slump God, Juice WRLD, PnB Rock and more.

Throughout his rise, the Orlando, FL-native has attracted critical acclaim that is as diverse as his sound. Wall Street Journal Magazine christened him one of this year’s “Biggest Rising Talents in Hollywood” while NME included him in their The NME 100: Essential New Artists for 2020 list. Billboard has described his live show as “sublime,” while Paper Magazine described his visuals as “dark, decadent.” XXL exclaimed “Yaweh is all set to level up. Get to know him,” and GRAMMY.com proclaimed him a “rising charismatic artist.” Idolator perhaps put it best: ”the most exciting thing about the LA-based newcomer is his versatility. He’s equally adept at hip-hop, R&B and pop, which makes him the perfect artist for our post-genre world.” 

Get ready to rage with Tyla Yaweh throughout 2020 and beyond.

WATCH THE LYRIC VIDEO HERE!

(June 12, 2020 – New York, NY) Nottingham’s golden boys Young T & Bugsey are back with another huge remix to their global hit, ‘Don’t Rush’  – this time in the form of a blockbuster U.S remix featuring superstar rapper DaBaby

Get it HERE via Black Butter Records/Epic Records.

On this remix, the North Carolina rapper DaBaby comes through with his unique and playful rap flow and a solid verse, to compliment this amazing track. “Getting DaBaby on the remix was proper sick. It was good to know his team were fans of the song from even before he jumped on it. He done his verse super quick and it was hard! Can’t wait for everyone to hear it now,” says Young T & Bugsey.

‘Don’t Rush’, off of Young T & Bugsey’s highly anticipated debut mixtape ‘Plead The 5th which released at the start of 2020, included other hit tracks such as their Platinum selling, top ten record ‘Strike A Pose’ featuring Aitch, and Stand Up Man to name just a few.

Young T & Bugsey recently made history – becoming the first UK rap duo to ever chart on the U.S ‘Hot 100’ Billboard Chart (peaking at number 84). So far, ‘Don’t Rush’ has garnered well over 30 million views to date on YouTube, has over 90M+ combined global streams, was the most added song at urban U.S radio and reached #40 on U.S Top 40 Radio – all whilst doing over 1M worldwide daily streams, peaking at number #4 on the global Shazam chart and #3 on the U.S Shazam chart, incredibly. Six months after it’s release, the track has also re-entered the UK’s top 40 (after achieving a Top 20 position at the turn of the year) and Young T & Bugsey’s monthly listeners on Spotify has jumped up to 5.7M currently – simply amazing!

YOUNG T & BUGSEY RELEASE ‘DON’T RUSH’ REMIX FEATURING DABABY

The original track, which was released last November (and has been the most viewed video on GRM for over eight weeks) took social media by storm, after going viral globally, with the infectious #DontRushChallenge. The social media challenge took the internet by storm with fans, social media influencers  and celebrities from all around the world taking part (generating over half a billion views under the hashtag on Tik Tok alone). Familiar faces that took part included personalities such as Black-ish’s Skai Jackson, Christina Millian, Shaquille O’Neal, Martin Lawrence, the Cast of Orange Is The New Black, Bruno Mars and much more.

About Young T & Bugsey

Being based outside of London, Young T & Bugsey have had a longer and less-travelled path to success. BBC Nottingham‘s Dean Jackson has championed them from the early days, teeing up support from 1Xtra, who tipped them in 2018. 1Xtra backed a series of successful looks including ‘4×4’, ‘En Route’ and ‘Ay Caramba’, before fully cementing themselves in the UK scene in the last year, with the Top 20 hit ‘Don’t Rush’ and Top 10 smash ‘Strike A Pose’ – both A listed at Radio 1.

Young T & Bugsey recently released their debut mixtape ‘Plead The 5th’ featuring 10 brand new tracks plus ‘Strike A Pose’ and ‘Don’t Rush’.

THE UK’S BIGGEST SELLING SIGNED ARTIST OF LAST YEAR SURPASSES 2 BILLION GLOBAL STREAMS

TOM WALKER RELEASES NEW SINGLE “WAIT FOR YOU”

(June 11, 2020 – New York, NY)  Today, BRIT Award-winning singer/songwriter Tom Walker returns with his brand new single, “Wait For You.” Get it HERE.

Recorded during lockdown, there’s a sense of urgency in this deeply personal new track that resonates strongly for these times. Written by Tom along with Joel Pott (George Ezra, London Grammar, Mabel) and Cam Blackwood (George Ezra), produced by Cam Blackwood and mixed by Spike Stent, Tom’s voice has never sounded better. 

“This song is about a mate of mine who went through a life changing event as a teenager,” Tom explains. “It took a long time for him to heal and aspects of what happened have taken a toll on his life. Fast forward to now and he’s one of the most outgoing, positive people you could ever meet.

It got me thinking that we can all go through tough times; it’s what you chose to do after that is important. If something positive can come out of it, that’s a really special thing.”

The deeply personal narrative and emotion is reminiscent of much of Tom’s canon of hits, especially “Leave A Light On.”

Tom, whose global streams have just passed two billion, was the biggest selling UK signed artist last year. He is currently working on a new album, so watch this space for more soon.

(Los Angeles, CA – May 29, 2020) – LAMB OF GOD has released “Routes,” the fourth single from their June 19 self-titled Epic Records release, featuring a guest appearance from Testament vocalist Chuck Billy.

A visualizer for the track is available now at http://lamb-of-god.com. Fans can pre-order Lamb of God, including a new alternate CD cover version signed by all five band members, now at the band’s official webstore: http://shop.lamb-of-god.com

“Routes” was lyrically inspired by vocalist D. Randall Blythe’s time alongside native peoples at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota during the No DAPL movement. This protest, which began with just a few Native women and children camping at the site in protest of the pipeline being built so near to their water supply on unceded treaty land, quickly grew to an encampment of thousands and received global attention.  

Says Blythe, “I went to Standing Rock because I had heard reports of violence committed on the peaceful protestors there by both state law enforcement and private security contractors, and this violence was not reported in mainstream media for the most part. I went to bring supplies and support these people, who were trying to protect their water, and thereby protect everyone, as everything in the natural world is protected. I was there a week, made some great friends, and learned a lot. It was a very profound experience in my life, and I knew one day I would write a song about it.”

Although Blythe conveys his story through the song’s vivid lyrics, he called in his friend Chuck Billy, who is of Pomo Native American heritage, to lend a deeper authenticity to his narrative. “My experience, although my own, was tempered and shaped by the hundreds of years of brutal oppression of Native peoples in our country,” says Blythe. “So, it was imperative for me to have a Native voice represented on the song, and Chuck Billy was happy to be that voice. At the end, there is a call and response section – Chuck calls and I respond. This is intentional. Musically, it is symbolic of my experience there. A native voice leads, bringing forth positive energy and calling to the people to unite, and I reply, providing support. That was my physical experience, and it is reflected in the song.” 

Chuck Billy adds, “It was a great honor as a proud Pomo Native American to be asked by LAMB OF GOD to do some guest vocals on this song. The No DAPL movement by the indigenous people of this country was a historic event. Being able to lend my voice to represent the Native American people, complementing Randy’s storytelling and lyrics, is something really special to me. I’m glad this movement was put in a musical message, and I am extremely happy to have been a part of it.”

Audiences got a taste of the first new LAMB OF GOD music in nearly five years with “Checkmate” back in February, followed by “Memento Mori” and the most recent single, “New Colossal Hate.” All four songs will appear on Lamb Of God, the follow-up to VII: Sturm und Drang (2015). The album was once again produced by collaborator Josh Wilbur (Gojira, Korn, Megadeth, Trivium), fueled by a mountain of riffs and looming rhythmic shadows. It is also the band’s first record with Cruz, who sat behind the kit with LAMB OF GOD in 2018 and became an official member the following year. In addition to Chuck Billy, the new album features a guest appearance from Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed). Blythe sounds more driven and insightful than ever on Lamb Of God, offering up the angriest and most comprehensive diatribes, addressing modern life in the current landscape, of his storied career thus far. 

LAMB OF GOD propelled heavy metal into the new millennium two decades ago with the prophetically titled New American Gospel. They followed with 2003’s As the Palaces Burn, which made the Rolling Stone list of the Top 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time. Ashes of the Wake (2004) was the first LAMB OF GOD album to be certified gold by the RIAA, followed by Sacrament (2006), which debuted in Billboard’s Top 10. Wrath (2009) earned the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hard Rock, Rock, and Tastemaker charts and was No. 2 on the Billboard 200. Those No. 1 positions were repeated with Resolution (2012). VII: Sturm und Drang (2015) debuted at No. 3 in North America and in the Top 5 in several countries. The single “512” from VII: Sturm und Drang received a Grammy nod for the “Best Metal Performance,” making it LAMB OF GOD’s fifth Grammy nomination.

LAMB OF GOD is:

D. Randall Blythe – Vocals 

Mark Morton – Guitar 

Willie Adler – Guitar

Art Cruz – Drums

EXPANDING ONE OF THE YEAR’S BIGGEST HIP-HOP ALBUMS G HERBO DROPS PTSD DELUXE TODAY

ADDS 14 NEW TRACKS WITH GUEST APPEARANCES FROM LIL UZI VERT & LIL DURK

(May 29, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – Expanding one of the biggest and most impactful hip-hop opuses of 2020, G Herbo unleashes PTSD Deluxe today. The gold-certified critically acclaimed Chicago luminary added 14 new tracks to the chart-topping original, which notably bowed at #7 on the Billboard Top 200 in February and yielded the gold-selling smash and title track “PTSD” [feat. Juice WRLDLil Uzi Vert, & Chance the Rapper].

Get it HERE via Machine Entertainment Group/Orchard/Epic Records.

He preceded PTSD Deluxe with the fiery “Friends & Foes. Right out of the gate it clocked 1M YouTube views on the music video and received various tastemaker looks. HYPEBEAST and Complexboth plugged the clip. Meanwhile, REVOLT.TV described it as “a powerful example of how everything has been feeling during the Coronavirus pandemic. 

Deluxe teems with new bangers. He goes wild on “Real One” [feat. Lil Durk] and lights up the beat on “Smoke. Meanwhile, “Like This” [feat. Lil Uzi Vert] swings from defiant flows into a dynamic hook as he and Philly’s finest go bar-for-bar in a knockout call-and-response. Everything culminates on the soulful “4AM To 8AM” complete with gospel backing vocals, airy beats, and his confessional rhymes. 

Check out the full tracklisting below.

Just in time for Mental Health Awareness Month, G Herbo delivers the definitive version of PTSD and an enduring statement for the culture.

This month, he also took action in the fight against COVID-19. Stepping up to help, Herbo joined forces with Alliance for Safety and Justice to donate 20,000 protective masks to Cook County jails— one of the nation’s largest jails that has been identified among the greatest sources of coronavirus infections in the country. This donation will make a major impact in the correctional facilities and leave a positive mark on the system.

As a whole, PTSD tours the darkest corners of a psyche damaged by the everlasting cycle of inner city violence as witnessed firsthand by Herbo. On the gruff and gritty “Intro, he spits with purpose, passion, and power. From the jump, he announces, “I do it for the have-s and have-nots, as nineties production glistens. The intensity only ramps up from there on “Glass In The Face” [feat. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie]. A centerpiece of the record, “PTSD” [feat. the Juice WRLDChance the RapperLil Uzi Vert] unfolds as an emotionally charged confession, bringing together three of Chicago’s most influential voices—the late Juice WRLDChance, and Herbo—and elusive Philadelphia multiplatinum star Lil Uzi Vert. It paints a picture of urban decay and highlights a pervasive theme with the declaration, “Don’t stand too close to me, I got PTSD.” Meanwhile, soul samples bleed into a crossfire between Herbo and 21 Savage on “By Any Means.” Everything culminates on “Intuition” [feat. 2PRETTY Sonta]. It offers a peek at the light at the end of the tunnel with heavenly vocals and a skittering beat and one final lyrical catharsis.

Quietly putting up over 1 billion streams and attracting widespread critical acclaim, G Herbo emerged as one of the Windy City’s most important presences and a voice for hip-hop at large. He hailed from the notorious Chicago neighborhood of “Terror Town” and went on to drop one explosive project after another beginning with Ballin Like I’m Kobe in 2016. In the aftermath, he lifted himself up to the top of the charts with Humble Beast, which vaulted into the Top 25 of the Billboard Top 200 in 2017. He ascended to unparalleled critical peaks on 2018’s Swervo with Southside. It clinched #15 on the Top 200 and bowed in the Top 10 on the Top Rap Albums Chart and Top 10 on the Top R&B Hip-Hop Albums Chart. Receiving praise from HotNewHipHopHipHopDXDJ BoothThe Four Oh Five, and more, Pitchfork proclaimed Swervo among “The Best Rap Albums of 2018” and asserted, “Through it all, G Herbo never abandons the puns and hater-dismantling bars that have helped him become one of the Windy City’s very best. Boasting collaborations with Gunna “Trained To Kill (Big Body Whips)” and the late legend Juice WRLD “Never Scared, 2019’s Still Swervin maintained his momentum followed by Sessions at the end of the year.
