MTV PRESENTS: KHALED-CON

(Los Angeles, CA – May 17, 2019After an emotional and monumental rollout, DJ Khaled unveils his twelfth full-length album and the music blockbuster of the summer, Father of Asahd, in stores and at all digital retailers today. Upon going live, it shot to the #1 of iTunes Overall Top Albums Chart and #1 on the Top Hip-Hop/Rap Albums Chart. 

Get it HERE via We The Best Music Group/Epic Records

It’s also available with exclusive merch on his D2C store www.wethebeststore.com.

On Wednesday, The GRAMMY® nominated multiplatinum artist, music industry visionary, innovative influencer, mogul, and mega-producer set the stage for the album’s arrival by sharing a heartfelt and personal open letter on Instagram in regards to the passing of friend, close collaborator, and Los Angeles hip-hop legend Nipsey Hussle. See the full letter below.

In the piece, Khaled, co-writers, producers and label partners are donating 100% of all of their proceeds from “Higher” to Nipsey’s children, Emani and Kross. As “vibrating on a ‘Higher’ level was the essence of Nipsey’s soul, the song amplifies this vibration on the highest level possible.

Last night, he debuted the heavenly music video for the track. Threaded together by some of the West Coast icon’s boldest bars and a skyscraping refrain from the crooner, the song might just be the most powerful in Khaled’s catalog. The visual shares a heartstring-tugging story befitting of his legacy.

Watch it HERE.

Khaled launched a full-scale media takeover on Wednesday. First up, he premiered the album cover art on the Times Square Jumbotron as chronicled by EXTRA TV! Tonight, he hits the couch on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon for what promises to be an unforgettable chat. XXL launches a special-edition issue starring Khaled and We The Best Music Group today—available HERE.

BILLBOARD #1 SECOND ALBUM i am > i was OUT NOW

ON THE COVER OF BILLBOARD MAGAZINE

(Los Angeles, CA – May 7, 2019) Making his anxiously awaited return to the road, GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum-certified rapper, artist, and visionary 21 Savage reveals the details for a full-scale North American headline tour this summer. Produced by Live Nation, the 21 Savage I AM > I WAS tour will kick off July 10 in Oklahoma City and make stops in 20 cities before wrapping up on August 16 in his hometown of Atlanta. Tickets go on sale to general public beginning Friday, May 10 at 10am local time at LiveNation.com. In addition, a limited number of VIP Packages will also be available, including premium tickets, meet & greets, early entry, exclusive merch and more.

Check out the full confirmed itinerary below.

This will be the artist’s first tour in support of his gold-certified second full-length, i am > i was [Slaughter Gang/Epic Records] and biggest headline run to date. The album continues to resound throughout culture. Among many successes, the single “a lot” recently garnered a platinum plaque, nearing 200 million streams on Spotify. Total streams for the tracklisting as a whole quickly approach half-a-billion across platforms. 

Not to mention, it uninspired unmatched critical praise. Proclaiming it “a great artistic leap forward, High Snobiety bestowed a coveted 4.5-out-of-5 score on the album. Variety predicted, “It’s surprising, considering his bona fides – not to mention the A-list guests on this album –  that 21 Savage is not yet a household name…i am > i was should change that.” Pitchfork summed it up best by writing,i am > i was shatters the notion of 21 Savage as a specialist with a narrow purview and audience, and recasts him as a star in waiting, all without forcing him into unflattering contortions. It also cements him as a far more original stylist than other hopefuls from Atlanta.”

Right now, he covers the latest issue of Billboard. Check it out HERE!

21 Savage tears up the road throughout 2019.

Get ready for more surprises.

About 21 Savage:

With an unapologetic flow, bulletproof bars, and deadly hooks, 21 Savage left an indelible mark on hip-hop as a true original. His full-length debut, Issa Album, clinched #2 behind Jay-Z’s 4:44 on the Billboard Top 200, earned a gold certification from the RIAA, and garnered widespread acclaim from PitchforkXXL, and more. At the same time, it produced a string of definitive hits for 2017, including the triple-platinum “Bank Account.” Within months of its release, he returned to the top of the charts on the collaborative epic, Without Warning, alongside Offset and Metro Boomin. It landed at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 and yielded the platinum “Ghostface Killers” [feat. Travis Scott]. Simultaneously, he featured on the year’s biggest hit, Post Malone’s six-times platinum“rockstar” and joined his collaborator for a sold out summer tour. Showing a greater 21 Savagei am > i was, brings us closer and takes it to the next level all around.

About DaBaby:

Since ambushing the music scene in 2015, DaBaby, formerly known as Baby Jesus, has made a huge impact on the Carolina music scene well before embracing his current alias. He explains his decision on “DaBaby (Intro),” a short introduction on 2016’s God’s Work Resurrected, his first mixtape under the new moniker. Multiple mixtapes followed in the coming months, with 2017 offering Billion Dollar BabyBaby Talk, Baby Talk 2, 3, and 4, as well as Back on My Baby Jesus Sh!t. 2018 continued in a similarly prolific fashion with Baby Talk 5 and Blank Blank. Baby On Baby, released March 1st, debuted at #4 on Apple Music Top 100, #25 on Billboard 200, and earned Dababy a #1 slot on Pandora’s Trendsetters Chart.

RISING GENRE-BLURRING HIP HOP STAR TYLA YAWEH UNVEILS MUSIC VIDEO FOR SINGLE “HIGH RIGHT NOW”

(Credit: Ryan Jay)

What The Press Is Saying About Tyla Yaweh…

“Tyla Yaweh is already doing big things […] there’s a pop sensibility to Tyla’s music that makes it palatable to the masses…” – Pigeons and Planes

“…the 23-year-old rapper is clearly on his own wave and he’s making music that crosses ‘all genres’ with a tip of positivity.” – Hot New Hip Hop

“[His]infectious energy is a key reason Yaweh was able to win over so many people…” – Billboard

“Yaweh lets loose the sort of rock-tinged, trap-infused R&B that’s earned him comparisons to Swae Lee… With stylistic range, a Post Malone co-sign and a sizable buzz at his back, Yaweh is all set to level up. Get to know him…” – XXL

(MAY 7, 2019 – LOS ANGELES, CA) – Today, rising genre-defying star Tyla Yaweh drops the cinematic music video for his latest single, “High Right Now.” Watch the video HERE!

Earlier this morning, HYPEBEAST exclusively premiered the visual directed by Sebastian Sdaigui [2 ChainzAriana Grande].

“The song is about my life,” explains Yaweh. “I’m living an ultimate high. I went from being homeless to traveling the globe with Rockstars, being able to connect and spread positive vibes to so many people.”

“High Right Now” proves equally intoxicating and irresistible. Yaweh levitates through an ornate church as gorgeous gothic ballerinas sway to the echoes of airy clean guitar and codeine-drenched trap drums. His woozy flows give way to a fiery falsetto refrain, “I’m so high right now. I don’t think I’ll ever come down. With its ominous setting, this alternative hip-hop séance casts an unbreakable spell.

A standout from Yaweh’s new project Heart Full of Rage [London Entertainment/Epic Records], “High Right Now” has already cracked 8.6 million streams and counting, and currently finds him covering the coveted Signed XOXO playlist on Spotify. Meanwhile, the project as a whole recently tallied in excess of 27.5 million streams world-wide.

Right now, he continues to bring his high-energy show on a world tour alongside Post Malone and Jaden Smith in Australia, having recently wrapped a European arena run supporting Malone himself. Yaweh recently shared an explosive performance video of “High Right Now” live from Europe, which can be viewed HERE. At the end of May, he returns stateside for a series of high-profile festival spots over the Summer and Fall, including Governors Ball (Bud Light Dive Bar Sessions), BonnarooFireflyLollapaloozaLife is Beautiful and more. Additionally, he is confirmed for a slew of European sets, including the iconic Reading and Leeds. Check out the confirmed itinerary below. 

All signs point to a major breakthrough for Tyla Yaweh. One hit of Heart Full of Rage, and you’ll be hooked. Get it HERE.

ABOUT TYLA YAWEH:

A new kind of rockstar, Tyla Yaweh defies everything, even genre. He seamlessly merges R&B, hip-hop, and pop without apology. As a result, he quietly became a phenomenon. Beyond racking up over 30 million cumulative streams, the Orlando-born and Los Angeles-based disruptor has performed alongside everyone from Post Malone to Saint JHN and collaborated with the likes of Ski Mask The Slump God, Juice WRLD, and more. Not to mention, he received acclaim from ComplexHotNewHipHop, and more. Breaking rules and boundaries all at once, he’s primed to explode in 2019 with the aptly titled Heart Full Of Rage.

JOHN.k RELEASES EPIC RECORDS DEBUT if we never met EP

(April 26, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – After igniting over 30 million streams independently and attracting a wildly passionate fan base, Florida soul-pop sensation JOHN.k unveils his debut, if we never met EP, today. Get it HERE via Epic Records.

Just in time for summer, the four-song project spotlights his sun-kissed combo of breezy alternative, swaggering R&B, and clever pop.“Rum n Tequila” sets the tone with its bright acoustic guitar, organic handclaps, and shimmering piano. Buoyed by his deft range and slick falsetto, the track builds from admissions of “listenin’ to Tay Swift” into an intoxicating and confessional chant, “Now I’m sippin’ on my rum n tequila tryin’ to numb all the pain.  Elsewhere, title track “If We Never Met” paints a wistful and nostalgic picture over a vibe-y soundscape, while “1999” winds the clock back with hip-hop cadences and TRL-ready boasts.

Check out the full tracklisting below.

As a big year looms on the horizon, it’s time to meet JOHN.k

With a dynamic voice and effortless cool, JOHN.k invites listeners to experience an eternal summer all year-round. The Florida native quietly cemented himself as an artist to watch and in 2017, Elvis Duran handpicked the independent rising star as his “Artist of the Month. Not only did he land features from NylonBillboardHuffington Post, and more, but he also staked out coveted real estate on top Spotify playlists such as New Music Friday. Within two years, he independently amassed upwards of 50 million streams and charted a bona fide hit in the form of “OT. Signed to Epic Records in 2019, he now brings the sunshine to soul on the if we never met EP.

Born and raised on Long Island, Morgan Saint learned piano and taught herself guitar during her formative years. Graduating from Parsons New School for Design, she gravitated towards music and artists who weren’t afraid to be themselves. With all her songs self-penned, she’s also crafted stunning videos that expand her creative canvas and vividly complement her music iterations as evidenced by her debut EP 17 HERO and follow-up ALIEN.

DEBUT ALBUM SET FOR 2019 RELEASE

BROTHER LEO SHARES NEW SINGLE “SHINE” TODAY

(April 18, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – Brother Leo—the alter ego of GRAMMY® Award-nominated Swedish singer, songwriter, and producer Ola Svensson—unveils a new single entitled “Shine” today. Get it HERE via Epic Records.

Backed by bright piano, a metronomic beat, and lively horns, the track builds from breathy verses into a show-stopping falsetto-driven refrain on which he croons, “Wonder when it’s my day to shine?” He notably teamed up with GRAMMY® Award-nominated songwriter and producer Elof Loelv [Rihanna, Tove Lo] to co-write the tune. 

About the transformative single, he had this to say, ‘Shine’ is the first song I wrote for my upcoming album. In a way, it was also the birth of what would become Brother Leo. I was in a pretty dark place when this song came to life. The writing process out to be quite therapeutic and became a turning point for me, both personally and creatively. To some, this will probably just be another happy tune, and that’s more than fine by me—but for me, it’s something totally different.”

It’s also something of a self-fulling prophecy as he’ll no doubt shine brighter than ever throughout 2019 as he readies his first album for release soon!

Brother Leo remains on the cusp of an international breakthrough. The artist’s November 2018 single “Push Up” just crossed 1.5 million streams. Meanwhile, his Fatboy Slim-produced summer single “Strangers On An Island” clocked over 3.5 million streams and counting. Additionally, NME christened it “A gorgeous, laid-back slice of pop magic,” and Wonderland exclaimed, “You’ll be wanting to direct your attention to the surreal, but mesmerizing visuals for Brother Leo’s Strangers On An Island.

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 gnashHailee SteinfeldAkon, 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 TOM WALKER

Tom Walker brings a whole lot of shine, soul, and spirit to popular music and culture. In doing so, the Scotland-born and Manchester-raised singer and songwriter quietly vaulted towards international stardom during 2018. His breakout single “Leave A Light On” achieved global sales of 2.5 million, captured #1 on iTunes in 20 countries, and went platinum in nine territories including the UK, Netherlands, France, Germany and Australia and gold in four countries. Becoming the “6th most Shazam’ed track in the world,” it also generated upwards of 390 million cumulative streams and 110 million video views within six months. As the song took off, he hit the stage for television performances on both sides of the pond, appearing on UK X Factor twice and on The Today Show stateside. A true live phenomenon, he entertained over 800,000 fans in 2018 between headline gigs and a high-profile tour alongside The Script. Topping off the year, he garnered the ASCAP Vanguard Award, placing him in good company with previous honorees such as Dua Lipa and Calvin Harris, to name a few. Additionally, he received a coveted BRIT Award in the category of “British Breakthrough Artist.”

Still, everything merely set the stage for his full-length debut, What A Time To Be Alive, arriving March 1, 2019 via Epic Records. He preceded the release with an updated version of his fan favorite “Just You And I, which previously racked up over 100 million streams.

 PERFORMED NEW SINGLE ON CBS’S NCIS: NEW ORLEANS THIS WEEK

“NO STYLIST” FEATURING DRAKE CERTIFIED PLATINUM

(April 18, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – Today, GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum artist, rapper, producer, influencer, and philanthropist French Montana returns with a brand new single entitled “Slide” [feat. BLUEFACE & Lil TJay]. 

Get it HERE via Epic Records.

Once again, he drops an event-level blockbuster, joining forces with two of the game’s hottest young talents. French taps into a high-energy cadence, sliding into the pocket with style. Meanwhile, 17-year-old Bronx phenomenon Lil TJay turns up with fresh East Coast fire. Southern California star and West Coast viral disruptor BLUEFACE shows up for a scene-stealing and meme-able cameo with no shortage of personality. It has all the ingredients of a summer smash…

“Slide” featuring Blueface and Lil Tjay was Zane Lowe’s World Record on Apple Music’s Beats 1.

A movie-style music video shot on-location in South Central makes its debut on VEVO/YouTube today. With style and pops of color inspired by Mexico’s Day of the Dead and Dick Tracy in equal measure, the visual unfurls as a psychedelic O.G. odyssey complete with shiny skull heads and monochromatic Al Capone-era suits. It sets the scene for these three stars to drop into the “slide” dance, which will undoubtedly transform into a phenomenon of its own.

BET Jams will debut the video on-air beginning at 9am ET, spinning it every hour on the hour. Additionally, they will display it in Times Square on their billboard-located on the side of the Viacom building.

Watch it HERE!

Breaking the mold yet again, French performed “Slide” for the first time on Tuesday’s episode of NCIS: New Orleans. Tune in to CBS to catch this high-octane performance bookended by 2018’s smash “No Stylist” on-demand.

Speaking of “No Stylist, it just received a platinum certification from the RIAA. The Drake-assisted hit also crossed 200 million streams on Spotify this week.

Get ready to “Slide” with French Montana this summer as he readies his new album for release soon.

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 quintuple-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.

Beyond this lead-off, he delivers three more tightly woven anthems on the project.

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.

BILLBOARD #1 SECOND ALBUM i am > i was OUT NOW

ON THE COVER OF BILLBOARD MAGAZINE

(Los Angeles, CA – May 7, 2019) Making his anxiously awaited return to the road, GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum-certified rapper, artist, and visionary 21 Savage reveals the details for a full-scale North American headline tour this summer. Produced by Live Nation, the 21 Savage I AM > I WAS tour will kick off July 10 in Oklahoma City and make stops in 20 cities before wrapping up on August 16 in his hometown of Atlanta. Tickets go on sale to general public beginning Friday, May 10 at 10am local time at LiveNation.com. In addition, a limited number of VIP Packages will also be available, including premium tickets, meet & greets, early entry, exclusive merch and more.

Check out the full confirmed itinerary below.

This will be the artist’s first tour in support of his gold-certified second full-length, i am > i was [Slaughter Gang/Epic Records] and biggest headline run to date. The album continues to resound throughout culture. Among many successes, the single “a lot” recently garnered a platinum plaque, nearing 200 million streams on Spotify. Total streams for the tracklisting as a whole quickly approach half-a-billion across platforms. 

Not to mention, it uninspired unmatched critical praise. Proclaiming it “a great artistic leap forward, High Snobiety bestowed a coveted 4.5-out-of-5 score on the album. Variety predicted, “It’s surprising, considering his bona fides – not to mention the A-list guests on this album –  that 21 Savage is not yet a household name…i am > i was should change that.” Pitchfork summed it up best by writing,i am > i was shatters the notion of 21 Savage as a specialist with a narrow purview and audience, and recasts him as a star in waiting, all without forcing him into unflattering contortions. It also cements him as a far more original stylist than other hopefuls from Atlanta.”

Right now, he covers the latest issue of Billboard. Check it out HERE!

21 Savage tears up the road throughout 2019.

About 21 Savage:

With an unapologetic flow, bulletproof bars, and deadly hooks, 21 Savage left an indelible mark on hip-hop as a true original. His full-length debut, Issa Album, clinched #2 behind Jay-Z’s 4:44 on the Billboard Top 200, earned a gold certification from the RIAA, and garnered widespread acclaim from PitchforkXXL, and more. At the same time, it produced a string of definitive hits for 2017, including the triple-platinum “Bank Account.” Within months of its release, he returned to the top of the charts on the collaborative epic, Without Warning, alongside Offset and Metro Boomin. It landed at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 and yielded the platinum “Ghostface Killers” [feat. Travis Scott]. Simultaneously, he featured on the year’s biggest hit, Post Malone’s six-times platinum“rockstar” and joined his collaborator for a sold out summer tour. Showing a greater 21 Savagei am > i was, brings us closer and takes it to the next level all around.

About DaBaby:

Since ambushing the music scene in 2015, DaBaby, formerly known as Baby Jesus, has made a huge impact on the Carolina music scene well before embracing his current alias. He explains his decision on “DaBaby (Intro),” a short introduction on 2016’s God’s Work Resurrected, his first mixtape under the new moniker. Multiple mixtapes followed in the coming months, with 2017 offering Billion Dollar BabyBaby Talk, Baby Talk 2, 3, and 4, as well as Back on My Baby Jesus Sh!t. 2018 continued in a similarly prolific fashion with Baby Talk 5 and Blank Blank. Baby On Baby, released March 1st, debuted at #4 on Apple Music Top 100, #25 on Billboard 200, and earned Dababy a #1 slot on Pandora’s Trendsetters Chart.
