Another one…

After practically breaking the internet with news of its arrival, GRAMMY® Award-winning multiplatinum artist, music industry visionary, innovative influencer, mogul, and mega-producer DJ Khaled unveils the biggest hip-hop event of the summer and his twelfth full-length album, KHALED KHALED, today via We The Best Music Group/Epic Records. Upon going live, it already vaulted to Top 5 on the iTunes Overall Top Albums Chart and #1 on the Hip-Hop/Rap Chart in addition to trending worldwide.

DJ KHALED RELEASES BLOCKBUSTER NEW ALBUM ‘KHALED KHALED’

Get it HERE.

Throughout the week, he has amplified anticipation with a series of viral Instagram posts. He teased the video for “Thankful Thankful” [feat. Lil Wayne & Jeremih] and racked up 600K-plus views, while his post of the official billboard generated 1 million-plus views in under a day! The streets and the culture have been waiting for this one with equal excitement, so he had to go as big as possible on release day (would you expect anything less though?).

This morning, he unleashed what might be his biggest and boldest video yet for the new single “Sorry Not Sorry” featuring guests JAY-Z, Nas, James Fauntleroy & Harmonies by the Hive. The song unites New York kings JAY-Z and Nas as they lock into a lyrical crossfire of historic “Song Cry” before James Fauntleroy drops a melodic and unforgettable hook.

Khaled and Co-Executive Producers (his sons) Asahd Tuck Khaled and Aalam Tuck Khaled assembled a downright unbelievable tracklisting. The album boasts soon-to-be fan favorites “Just Be” [feat. Justin Timberlake], “We Going Crazy” [feat. H.E.R. & Migos], “I Did It” [feat. Post Malone, Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Baby & DaBaby], and “Let It Go” [feat. Justin Bieber & 21 Savage], among others. Not to mention, it includes the double-platinum “POPSTAR” [feat. Drake] and platinum “GREECE” [feat. Drake].

Check out the full tracklisting below.

The Anthem King has returned with an album that shares his birth name and represents him to his core—KHALED KHALED.

He’s still the best…

ABOUT DJ KHALED:

For over two decades, the very mention of DJ Khaled has implied an elevated level of musical greatness, entrepreneurial excellence, and cultural impact. You’ve heard him across a GRAMMY® Award-winning multiplatinum catalog, seen him in blockbusters such as Bad Boys For Life, caught him on the cover of Rolling Stone, watched him on numerous television programs, and felt his presence from the streets all the way up to the Barack Obama White House. He has achieved dozens of multiplatinum and gold certifications, including the sextuple-platinum Billboard Hot 100 #1 “I’m The One” [feat. Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper, & Lil Wayne], quadruple-platinum “Wild Thoughts” [feat. Rihanna & Bryson Tiller], and double-platinum “No Brainer” [feat. Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper, & Quavo]. The latter propelled his 2019 album, Father of Asahd [We The Best Music Group/Epic Records], to the top of the charts. Not only did it garner a platinum certification, but it also became his third consecutive Top 2 debut on the Billboard Top 200 and emerged as the “#1 Most-Streamed Record” upon release. To date, he has moved 20 million singles and 6 million albums in addition to gathering 4 billion-plus streams.

Not to mention, he launched We The Best Music Group—a record label, management, publishing, and production company and in-demand studio. As a committed philanthropist, he founded his 501(c)3 organization The We The Best Foundation. It uplifts individuals throughout underserved communities across the United States and supports various non-profits. He has supported the fight against COVID-19., U2 frontman Bono recruited him as the first social media ambassador for Project Red, and he serves as the national spokesperson for Get Schooled. Now, the power of this legacy defines his thirteenth full-length album—which bears his birth name—Khaled Khaled [We The Best Music Group/Epic Records], preceded by two chart-busting bangers alongside frequent collaborator Drake, namely “POPSTAR” and “GREECE.

LAMB OF GOD PREMIERES LIVE VIDEO FOR “MOMENTO MORI (LIVE)” FROM LAMB OF GOD (DELUXE VERSION) DVD

(March 19, 2021 – Los Angeles, CA) – LAMB OF GOD has premiered the official video for “Memento Mori (Live)” from the Lamb of God: Live in Richmond DVD, which is part of the upcoming Lamb Of God (Deluxe Version), due out March 26 via Epic Records. The live track is also available now to stream on all DSPs here.

The video, which was filmed in the band’s native Richmond, VA, for a September 2020 livestream, is available today on YouTube and the band’s website at http://lamb-of-god.com

Pre-orders for the three-disc deluxe version of last year’s self-titled album are available now. The set features the critically acclaimed 2020 release with two bonus tracks and a live version of the album, along with a DVD featuring the first of LAMB OF GOD‘s two ultra-successful livestream events from the fall.

In addition to performing Lamb Of God in its entirety, the performance features an encore of four songs including “Ruin,” “Contractor,” “512,” and the debut live performance of “The Death Of Us,” a new song the band wrote and recorded in quarantine for the Bill & Ted Face The Music movie and soundtrack. The DVD also includes a new director’s cut with bonus material. Watch the trailer for the deluxe package now at https://youtu.be/ihoFtYAfgEc. Digital copies will contain only Disc 1 and Disc 2. A separate vinyl edition of Lamb Of God – Live From Richmond, VA will also be available.

The first single from Lamb Of God (Deluxe Version), “Ghost Shaped People,” has already received a response equal to the fervent reception the original release received last June, holding at number one on the Metal Contraband metal radio chart for four weeks in a row.

Lamb Of God, the quintet’s first new album in five years, was met with universal acclaim upon release – not only among major rock journalists, but with all strata of metal fans around the world.  

But critics, media and the industry aside, perhaps the most telling statistic is the year-end US Metal Radio chart, where the new album dominated at #1 by a massive margin (over 2,000 more spins than the album at #2).  Lamb Of God spent nine weeks in the #1 spot and never left the top 10 since debuting on the chart in February. Metal Radio is the lifeblood of the US metal world, largely staffed by college students and regional tastemakers, playing the music that they know their local metal fans want to hear. 

LAMB OF GOD’s self- titled album reached the coveted  #1 spot on Consequence of  Sound’s Top 30 Metal + Hard Rock Albums of 2020, stating, “Along with bringing in the New Wave of American Heavy Metal, LAMB OF GOD have been one of music’s most important acts over the past 20 years. From their phenomenal instrumentation to the potency of their sociopolitical lyricism, LAMB OF GOD remain titans of the genre, continuing to craft remarkable works of thrilling and captivating adrenaline… also proves to be a profound work of heavy metal… perhaps the most important metal album of 2020. It’s not only the album of LAMB OF GOD’s career, but the heavy album of the year.”

At iTunes, LAMB OF GOD has landed at number one on the Overall, Rock and Metal iTunes album chart upon release.

LAMB OF GOD eagerly awaits their return to the road to support Lamb of GodTheir North American co-headline tour with Megadeth and support from Trivium and In Flames has been rescheduled to begin in July 2021 and their headline tour in the UK and co-headline tour with Kreator in Europe will take place in November and December 2021. Tickets for both tours are on-sale at lamb-of-god.com/tour

LAMB OF GOD deliver the album of their career with self-titled effort…This album isn’t just an awesome release from LAMB OF GOD, but a perfect record to unite metalheads as one.” – Consequence of Sound

“There is a world-weary pessimism that permeates right to the bones of LAMB OF GOD’s breathtaking eight LP.” – Kerrang!

“The band has been vocal about the good place it’s in right now, and it shows in these songs.” – Metal Injection

LAMB OF GOD know, after all, that their true essence is a brutish machismo and that they are a vehicle for total catharsis.” – Rolling Stone

“This is a record that’s the most authentic version of the band LAMB OF GOD want to be.” – NME 

“The Virginian metal stalwarts’ self-titled album – their first release with Adler’s full-time replacement Art Cruz – boasts all the neck-snapping technical riffage and burly roars we’ve come to love,” –

Revolver’s  25 Best Albums of 2020.

The song resounds as the definitive rendition of “ilym” and fulfills an original wish by its creator.

“We always knew we wanted a female feature on the second verse of ‘ilym, ever since the day we wrote it,” says John KROSIE was able to capture the other side of the story in the most natural and seamless way. I love that the record can now take on a new meaning by showcasing that push and pull of feelings in a strong, committed relationship.”

Meanwhile, the duet represents a dream come true for ROSIE

“I remember the day I first heard John K and fell in love with his music, September 26th, 2018,” she exclaims. “Since that day, I’ve been a fan and dreamed of collaborating with him.  Little did I know, a few years later, I would not only be part of his project, but I would have the privilege of working with the most enthusiastic, hardworking, and humble artists I’ve met. I am honored to be featured on ‘ilym, and I couldn’t be gladder to share this experience with John!”

RIAA Platinum-certified single “if we never met” propelled him into 2020, with a version featuring Kelsea Ballerini and a return to the TODAY Show to perform the song.

Featuring those stand out singles and so much more, John K now presents his highly anticipated project, love + everything else

No filters, no Facetune, no Vsco, no makeup, no bullshit. What you see is what you get with 21-year-old singer-songwriter Rosie. “I want to be transparent. Everything is exactly as it appears,” she says. “The scale of emotions that everyone feels is such a spectrum. The bad days are equally as important as the good days.

An, environmentalist, mental health advocate, guitarist, vocal producer, songwriter, and now major label recording artist, Rosie’s achievements come from her undaunted resilience – a retaliation against life’s harder realities.

Immersive Reality Music Experience Takes Incredibly Lifelike Visuals to New Heights

NEW YORK – March 18, 2021 – The future of virtual concerts is here. Epic Records singer songwriter Madison Beer is debuting her groundbreaking new immersive reality music experience in its entirety exclusively on TikTok LIVE.

An ultra-realistic digital avatar of Madison so incredibly lifelike she has to be seen to be believed, will perform songs from her debut album, Life Support, in a dazzling, special effects filled showcase premiering on Madison’s TikTok account (@madisonbeer) at 3PM PT/6PM ET on Friday, March 19th.

Brought to you by Sony Music Entertainment, TikTok, and Verizon in partnership with Sony Immersive Music Studios, the Madison Beer Immersive Reality Concert Experience takes place in a full digital recreation of the Sony Hall concert venue in New York City and features a stunning presentation of Madison that reimagines what’s possible for music in virtual spaces. 

The experience is powered by cutting-edge innovations in real-time 3D creation technology and virtual production that highlight the incredible new opportunities for artists to push the boundaries of their imagination and creativity.

Said Beer, “Experimenting with virtual production technologies for this performance was like nothing I’ve ever done before. Exploring new ways of bringing my music to fans was a really fulfilling experience, especially in a time where we can’t physically be together to experience live music.”

Said Sylvia Rhone, Chairwoman and CEO, Epic Records, “Music fans have never seen a virtual concert like this. Madison Beer is transforming the viewing experience with this unique and visually groundbreaking showcase of her innovative vision, and we are thrilled to be helping her share it with the world. Supporting the development of cutting-edge immersive experiences like this is one of the many ways Epic Records works to create differentiated opportunities for our artists to expand their creative options and delight fans.”

Said Corey Sheridan, Head of Music Content & Partnerships, TikTok US,“At TikTok we are proud to drive the cultural conversation and support artists providing the kind of communal, interactive music moments that we’ve all sorely missed during the pandemic, and Madison Beer’s virtual experience is as close to being at a concert as you can get from the safety of your own home.”

Life Support is a candid, audacious and sonically eclectic statement from a self-made star who refuses to play by pop’s usual rules. It sees Madison where she thrives – commanding creative control through writing her own songs, producing and creating her own visuals. 

Expressing and inspiring a rollercoaster of emotions through spellbinding vocals over a broad-ranging sound-bed reflective of Madison’s own diverse musical tastes, Life Support is experimental, honest and ardent. The album explores mental health, the dizzying highs and rock-bottom lows of toxic relationships and the atypical life that Madison has led since famously being discovered on YouTube at age 12.

Get it HERE via Epic Records.

With over 14 million followers, Madison Beer is an active member of the TikTok community, amassing more than 1.5 billion views on her videos that engage with loyal fans who and share new music.

The brother duo of Pete and Sam Loeffler teamed up once again with longtime producer Joe Barresi, writing and recording throughout 2019 and 2020. The results are an intriguing and inimitable body of work, with themes that reveal themselves throughout the album’s 13 songs.

The multiplatinum Chicago rock band have generated close to 1.7 billion global streams, earned 12 number 1 hits, and sold out shows worldwide. Their catalog spans the double-platinum Wonder What’s Next highlighted by the double-platinum smash “The Red” and platinum “Send The Pain Below” as well as the platinum This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In) and gold Vena Sera. They’ve landed five Top 10 debuts on the Billboard Top 200, including Sci-Fi Crimes [2009], Hats Off to the Bull [2011], La Gárgola [2014], The North Corridor [2016] and now NIRATIAS [2021].

Produced by the legendary Mike Dean [Travis Scott, Kanye West], the track hinges on stark piano as the vocals immediately draw the spotlight. Uplifted by soft strings, his show-stopping voice alternates between intimate verses and a seismic refrain with sweeping cinematic scope. It illustrates his evolution as a songwriter, vocalist, and artist, bringing new power to the forefront of his sound.

The song, AJ explains, is about the beginning of his career when he first arrived in Los Angeles to chase his dreams, and a toxic situation he found himself in while a member of the content collective Team 10.  “Once the cameras turned on, the dynamic changed. Everyone was all of a sudden like, ‘Oh, I love you’. When the cameras shut off, nobody talked to one another. Everybody was staring at a phone. I was young, so it was weird for me to understand. The only thing that saved me was music. Once again, it took me away—just like it did back in my hometown of Belleville, IL.” 

AJ begins the visual at the piano before we voyeuristically follow him on various analog televisions. Evoking a darker side of reality, it depicts the tension of his relationship and ensuing loneliness intercut with entrancing performance vignettes.  “CAMERAS ON” ignites his next chapter, paving the way for his full-length debut album, Skyview, due this year and executive produced by Mike Dean

Recently, AJ joined forces with Cheat Codes for the collaborative bop “Hate You + Love You.” It has already racked up 5.1 million Spotify streams and counting. Wrapping up 2020, he also collaborated with names like Elle Henderson, Steve Aoki, Captain Cuts, and more.

Since emerging in 2018, AJ Mitchell has consistently asserted himself as pop’s most dynamic new leading man. Averaging over 7 million monthly listeners on Spotify, he impressively leaped past the 1-billion stream mark within three years. In addition to being named a Vevo LIFT artist and MTV Push artist, Variety championed him on its “Young Hollywood” 2020 list. Beyond acclaim from BillboardIdolatorHighsnobiety, and Seventeen, he delivered show-stopping performances at the MTV VMAs and on The Today Show and Good Day New York. In 2019, his Slow Dance EP yielded the gold-selling title track “Slow Dance” [feat. Ava Max]. Including the latter, he has logged four songs on the Top 40 at Pop Radio thus far. Over the past year, he assembled his full-length debut Skyview with the legendary Mike Dean as Executive Producer. Now, the cameras are on, and AJ Mitchell is ready to shine in 2021.

YG, DAY SULAN, & D3 UNLEASH FIRST 4HUNNID COMPILATION GANG AFFILIATED EP

(March 5th, 2021 — Los Angeles, CA)  Emerging to the forefront of the culture as a force to be reckoned with, the 4Hunnid Records crew—YGDay Sulan, and D3—unleash their first-ever compilation the Gang Affiliated EP today. It is available now via 4Hunnid/Epic Records.

The seven-track project sees these three powerhouses light up the West Coast and ignite a new era of California hip-hop in the process. On the first track “OP Vibes,” the YG & D3 tear through anxious 808s with tenacious bars and an ominous refrain. Bass-y piano bolts down D3’s bullet-riddled “Yellow Tape” [feat. DDG] before another hard-hitting hook, while airy guitar wraps around “Roxanne.” Everything culminates on the punchy anthem “My Bruddas” where D3 and YG link with Tay2Xs for one last slick salvo. 

Check out the full tracklisting below.

4Hunnid recently paved the way for the Gang Affiliated EP with the bilingual banger “Bailar” by YG and Day Sulan. Inciting critical applause, UPROXX wrote, “Here YG and Sulan show their growing chemistry over the song’s Latin-influenced production, and L.A. Weekly described Day Sulan as “absolutely on the rise.” Meanwhile, Brooklyn Vegan praised how Day Sulan bounces between English and Spanish on this catchy new collab with her 4Hunnid label boss.” The music video has amassed 529K YouTube Views, while the song racked up 665K Spotify streams. The project also boasts “Hit Em Up,” which is approaching 3 million streams.

ABOUT DAY SULAN:

Struggle shapes us. Practically forged in fire, Day Sulan rose up from Compton with a fierce, focused, and furious style of her own. Of African-American and Vietnamese descent, she endured a broken home and the trials and tribulations of the hood in Compton. Stripping in order to get by, multi platinum YG rapper and L.A. luminary actually found her at Crazy Girls during early 2019. Welcomed into the 4HUNNID family and putting up millions of streams, Day Sulan spoke out on “Her Story,” off YG’s 2019 opus 4Real 4Real, which shot to #7 on Billboard’s Top 200. Now, she ignites her boldest and biggest bars yet on her upcoming debut for 4HUNNID/Epic Records.

ABOUT D3:

Signed to 4Hunnid Records in 2020, Los Angeles spitter D3locked into an unbreakable groove, dropping one bulletproof banger after another right out of the gate. After the independent success of his Gang Szn EP, he joined forces with YG and Lil Wayne on the hard-hitting “Blood Walk” from My Life 4Hunnid, which bowed at #4 on the Billboard Top 200. He kicked off 2021 by teaming up with YG and Day Sulan for “Hit Em Up, generating just shy of 3 million streams and bulldozing a path for the 4Hunnid Gang Affiliated EP. He will be dropping more music in 2021.

LIZA OWEN SHARES NEW SONG & VIDEO “JOSIE”

(Los Angeles, CA – March 5th 2021) The rapidly ascendant, LA-via-Hampshire, British Cambodian pop star Liza Owen shares an epic new single today, titled “JOSIE” via Epic Records.

Following singles, “Why Aren’t We Having Sex?”, “Getting Good” and “Starry Eyed”, “JOSIE” is yet another formidable addition to her musical arsenal – a soaring and anthemic ballad, albeit one underscored by dark lyrics about a friendship gone sour. Once again, Liza flexes her distinctively genre-bending style and taste, with her powerful vocals and wildly infectious take on modern pop further cementing her as one to watch this year. 

Liza further explains, “JOSIE was born out of a conversation in the car on the way to the studio. I was recounting a story about some recent drama in my relationship regarding an ex of my partners. I was telling my friends & co writers Ali Tamposi

& Paul Phamous that ‘Josie ‘ was back in town… the rest is history” 

“JOSIE” also comes accompanied by a gorgeously widescreen video directed by Aisha Schliessler and shot, appropriately, in one seamless take at the Sunset Hollywood Villa – a staple Bond movie location. At once sweet, strange and oh so slightly sinister – that is Liza Owen to a tee.

STREAM “JOSIE” HERE

RECENT PRAISE FOR LIZA OWEN:

“With darkly glamorous pop-led soundscapes, singer-songwriter Liza Owen has certainly proven that she is an artist to keep an eye on…” – Notion

“Her infectious singles Starry Eyed and Getting Good prove she’s ready to make it big over the next 12 months.” – Daily Star, Ones to Watch 2021

New single ‘Starry Eyed’ takes her music in a potent direction, and it’s the sound of someone coming full circle, realising their ambitions in the process. – CLASH

Liza spins pop upside down and all around, with defiantly unfiltered lyrics, undeniable melodies and unapologetic grit. Originally breaking into the business writing songs for the likes of Selena Gomez, BTS and Carly Rae Jepsen, this past year she has quietly been putting her very own inimitable stamp on music. Owen has all the makings of a smart and deliciously subversive new star, one who stubbornly refuses to sand down her rough edges or present anything less than an image that is 100% authentic.

GLOBAL POP SENSATION ZARA LARSSON RELEASES HIGHLY ANTICIPATED ALBUM POSTER GIRL

ZARA TO HOST EXCLUSIVE LIVESTREAMED CONCERT ON INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY (MARCH 8TH)

“Poster Girl is a dance record from start to finish, fast-paced and symphonic. Larsson falls into every dimension of love with conviction and female autonomy at the core of her performance.” – PAPER 

“A glossy, disco-tinged twist on classic Swedish pop” – BILLBOARD

“Poster Girl brands Larsson as a pop singer with range, one indebted to the perfection that pop music demands while infusing it with the specific honesty that it often curtails.” – ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

(March 5, 2021- Los Angeles, CA) – Today, multi-platinum pop star Zara Larsson releases her highly anticipated album Poster Girl. The 12-track album is empowering, uplifting and deeply personal – showcasing Zara’s growth as a young woman and capturing her vibrant personality. 

Get it HERE via TEN/Epic Records.

“I’ve grown as a person, making this album,” says Zara. “The thread is me growing up, being more comfortable and more confident. I’m not a teenager anymore; I’m a young woman.”

To commemorate International Women’s Day (March 8th), Zara will be hosting an exclusive online concert where she will be performing songs from Poster Girl alongside some of her biggest hits. The livestream will air exclusively on Zara’s YouTube for a limited time courtesy of iconic Swedish business Ikea and presented by Live Nation (subscribe now for more information to follow).  

Zara is also treating fans to two new visuals – a live VEVO performance of the title track “Poster Girl” (watch HERE ) and the lyric video for the track “Need Someone” (watch HERE)

No mere ‘Poster Girl’, Zara Larsson is that new kind of pop star. At just 23-years-old, the Stockholm-based sensation has showcased her sixth sense for hit melodies with a series of chart anthems (“Lush Life”, “Never Forget You,” ”I Would Like,” “Symphony” and “Ruin My Life” to name but a few). Her first international album, So Good, became the second most-streamed debut by a female artist ever on Spotify. Its follow up, Poster Girl, marks without a doubt her arrival at Pop’s Top Table. Mixing some of the musical loves of her life (the dance floor melodrama of local heroes Abba, the empowered R&B of early Rihanna) with themes of female empowerment, fame, and finding yourself, Zara has worked on the record alongside a formidable list of collaborators: from Young Thug (on new single “Talk About Love”) and Max Martin to Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter (Selena Gomez, Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber), Steve Mac (Ed Sheeran, Years & Years) and Camille Purcell (Little Mix, Mabel). 

The full Poster Girl tracklist can be found below:

  1. Love Me Land
  2. Talk About Love feat. Young Thug
  3. Need Someone
  4. Right Here
  5. Wow
  6. Poster Girl
  7. I Need Love
  8. Look What You’ve Done
  9. Ruin My Life
  10. Stick With You
  11. FFF
  12. What Happens Here 

About Zara Larsson

All women have superpowers. Wielding those superpowers, Zara Larsson provokes and pushes pop music and culture forward with empowered, enlightened and energized anthems that soar and seduce all at once. With every move, she continues to quietly make history and break records. Her RIAA platinum-certified 2017 full-length, So Good, notably stands out as “the second-most-streamed debut on Spotify by a female artist ever,” eclipsing 5.5 billion streams. 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 Grammy Awards, Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, MTV 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 forthcoming international album.

BAHARI RELEASES NEW SINGLES “BIPOLAR” AND “JACKIE KENNEDY”

(Get artwork and press photos HERE)

(March 5, 2021 – Los Angeles, CA) – Today, rising alt-pop duo Bahari return with two new singles entitled “Bipolar” and “Jackie Kennedy. Get “Bipolar” HERE and “Jackie Kennedy” HERE via Bahari Music, LLC/Epic Records and watch the official music video for “Bipolar” HERE.

Both songs embrace the duo’s unique talent in making the extremely personal universal.  “Bipolar” bottles the ups and downs of a manic relationship into a piano-laden, emotional meditation. Strains of soft keys echo beneath a lyrical push-and-pull punctuated by the reprise, “Sometimes, I love you. Sometimes, I hate you. The glitchy bridge breaks underneath the weight of one resounding confession, “I’m fucking crazy for you.” The accompanying music video juxtaposes the bliss of two couples with relationship tension and strife. It depicts the girls—Ruby Carr and Natalia Panzarella—in the throes of this tumult with claustrophobic closeups and intense vignettes. S

Says Ruby, the song “represents the polarizing ups and downs of a relationship. The feelings of being everything to someone, yet nothing at all. This song highlights the push and pull and emotional rollercoaster of being in love. How beautiful it can be but also how hard it is. It’s about our first real love that each of us experienced, and how challenging it can be trying to maintain a healthy relationship whilst struggling with our own mental health, and how deeply ones mental health can affect a relationship. It’s about that burning passion, high highs and lowest of lows.”

Meanwhile, “Jackie Kennedy” sees the girls open up like never before. Written in a ten-minute rush of inspiration, Natalia details the tragic loss of a significant other between stark piano and strings. It exhibits empathy for First Lady Jackie Kennedy with the tear-filled chorus, “We lost a lifetime you and I.

On “Jackie Kennedy,” Natalia says, it “was a song that came out of one of the hardest times of my life. I had just lost someone very suddenly that I was deeply in love with and it was the first time I had someone close to me pass. It was so isolating because of all of the emotions I was feeling that I never really processed the grief until I wrote this song a few years later. I never had any intention of this song leaving my bedroom, but after realizing it helped me I can only hope it can at least be a moment of feeling that someone understands. Right now more than ever we have to check in on each other and be there for one another. It’s okay to feel sad, but it’s really fucking scary feeling alone.” 

Stay tuned for the premiere of the music video, coming later this month. 

These songs follow up last year’s Waking Up The Neighbors and “Savage” remix featuring rapper BIA.  Fall into Bahari’s embrace now. Be on the lookout for more music soon.

Bahari Management: William Derella

About Bahari:

Every so often, two separate journeys collide to form the perfect union in just the right place at just the right time. Bahari blossom from a similar confluence of circumstances. Singer and keyboardist Ruby Carrhails from the tiny island of Lamu off the coast of Kenya, while singer and bassist Natalia Panzarella was born in Nashville but grew up in Southern California. Each of their experiences shapes a dynamic, diverse, and dark take on alternative pop. Generating over 650 million streams and receiving acclaim from LadygunnNylonBillboardOnes To Watch, and more, the Los Angeles-based duo bring a shared vision to life.

After meeting at a songwriting session at 16-years-old, the girls formed a lifelong bond. Shortly after, Bahari initially made waves with “Wild Ones, which generated close to 40 million Spotify streams. They maintained a consistent pace with the Dancing on the Sun EP [2016] and singles “Get Together” and “Fucked Up. Along the way, they supported Selena Gomez and Birdy on tour and teamed up with Zedd, ILLENIUM and Grey for collaborations. After quietly grinding, Bahari earned a viral hit with 2018’s “Savage,” which took on a second life in 2020 with an official remix featuring BIA. Not has did the song generate over 100 million total streams, but the original version also went Gold. Last year, the duo also contributed to the To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You Original Soundtrack. 

Now in partnership with Epic Records, the pair are gearing up for even more new music coming soon.

CHEVELLE RELEASE NEW STUDIO ALBUM NIRATIAS TODAY

(New York, NY – March 5, 2021) – Today, multi-platinum rock band Chevelle unveil their anxiously awaited ninth full-length album, NIRATIAS [Epic Records]. It is available HEREUpon going live, it catapulted to #1 on the iTunes Rock Albums Chart, and #2 on the overall Albums Chart.

Prior to its arrival, the band unloaded a salvo of singles, all released to acclaim. Lead single “Self Destructor” has already eclipsed close to 5 million streams globally and over 1 million YouTube views on the music video. After emerging as the “#1 Most Added Song, it just broke into the Top 3 at Active Rock, adding to their robust catalogue of hits. Closing in on over 2 million streams, “Peach” garnered critical acclaim right out of the gate. Consequence of Sound praised it as “a grand musical statement from Chevelle.” Meanwhile, “Remember When” also continues to gain traction with Loudwire complimenting the track, noting it’s “spiraling guitar line and propulsive beats,” along with Pete’s “pained and strained emotional vocal.”

NIRATIAS is an acronym for Nothing Is Real and This Is a Simulation, and it represents the band at their dimension-blurring best.  The body of work twists and turns through crushing guitars and haunting melodies like a cosmically heavy roller coaster at the edge of existence. The instrumental opener “Verruckt” sets the tone with its gnashing distortion and laser-precise groove. “So Long, Mother Earth”doubles as a eulogy for our planet carried by an overpowering scream and searing solo. Clocking in at almost six minutes, “Ghost and Razor” culminates on one final distorted exorcism before a pensive spoken word echoes barely above a whisper on “Lost In Digital Woods.

NIRATIAS stands out as the band’s most pummeling and provocative record yet. Teaming with longtime producer Joe Barresi, Chevelle recorded throughout 2019 and 2020 and pieced together an intriguing and inimitable body of work, with themes that will reveal themselves soon.  The album artwork is by Boris Vallejo. The famed and award-winning artist is responsible for the posters used for films like Knightridersand National Lampoon’s Vacation, as well as iconic 70’s and 80’s science fiction novel covers and magazines (such as Heavy Metal).  

Throughout their career, Chevelle have transformed rock music as tried-and-true outliers. The multiplatinum Chicago rock band have generated close to 1.7 billion global streams, earned seven number one hits, and sold out shows worldwide. Their catalog spans the double-platinum Wonder What’s Nexthighlighted by the double-platinum smash “The Red” and platinum “Send The Pain Below” as well as the platinum This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In) and gold Vena Sera. They’ve landed four Top 10 debuts on the Billboard Top 200, including Sci-Fi Crimes [2009], Hats Off to the Bull [2011], La Gárgola [2014], and The North Corridor [2016]. The latter two each captured #1 on the Top Rock Albums Chart. 

With NIRATIAS, get ready to lift off with Chevelle as they elevate into another stratosphere in 2021.

MADISON BEER RELEASES DEBUT ALBUM LIFE SUPPORT TODAY

LISTEN TO/ SHARE MADISON BEER’S LIFE SUPPORT HERE

PURCHASE TICKETS FOR MADISON BEER PRESENTS: LIFE SUPPORT IN CONCERT HERE

(New York, NY) February 26th , 2021- Today Madison Beer releases her highly anticipated debut album, Life Support, nine years to the day since her first post on YouTube. Candid, audacious and sonically eclectic, Life Support is a strong personal and artistic statement from a self-made star who refuses to play by pop’s usual rules. It sees Madison where she thrives – commanding creative control through writing her own songs, producing and creating her own visuals. 

Expressing and inspiring a rollercoaster of emotionsthrough spellbinding vocals over a broad-ranging sound-bed reflective of Madison’s own diverse musical tastes, Life Support is experimental, honest and ardent. The album explores mental health, the dizzying highs and rock-bottom lows of toxic relationships and the atypical life that Madison has led since famously being discovered on YouTube at age 12.

“Writing songs is like therapy for me.” says Madison. “That’s why this album is called Life Support. It helped me get rid of the darkness and see the light. My inspirations sonically are really diverse. I guess I’m not an easy artist to pigeonhole, and a lot of these songs are like nothing I’ve ever attempted before. All of me is laid bare on this album; it’s been a really fulfilling experience to create something that feels so true to myself. Making music taught me a safe way of being vulnerable. It forced me to put my feelings into words, to hold a mirror up to myself and translate that into something tangible. There was a time in my life where the promise of going to the studio was the only thing getting me out of bed in the morning. I’m not exaggerating when I say it’s my lifeline. I can put something into a song and then let it go, send it out into the world. When fans tell me I’ve put a voice to something they’ve been feeling, it’s as affirming for me as it is for them.”

Alongside previously released singles “Good In Goodbye”“Selfish”, “Baby” and “BOYSHIT” (which have a combined stream count of over 500 million), Life Support highlights includethe melodramatic, shape-shifting “Default”;  the otherworldly “Homesick” with its Rick and Morty sample (an homage to Madison’s favorite TV show); The Matrix-inspired “Follow The White Rabbit” set to throbbing bass, tolling bells and twanging guitar; and the country-tinged album closer “Everything Happens For A Reason” – a last look back before moving on. Madison will be performing “BOYSHIT” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on March 1st.

Madison will perform the album in full for the first time at Madison Beer Presents: LIFE SUPPORT IN CONCERT – a fully stylized, globally streamed concert which Madison has developed in partnership with Headliner. The innovative concert will take place at www.headliner.live on March 6th and 7thacross five time zones (see below for full schedule). Tickets are available to purchase now here.

Prior to signing with Epic Records in 2019, Madison Beer achieved unprecedented success as an independent artist with her partner First Access Entertainment. Her debut EP As She Pleasesmade her the first independent female solo artist to break into the Top 20 radio charts, after having debuted in the Top 5 on iTunes in 18 countries and in the Top 10 in 42 countries worldwide. 

Globally, Madison has independently amassed over 3 billion streams across her catalogue and built a huge, engaged and ever growing fanbase on social media with 22.5 million followers on Instagram13 million on TikTok and 3 million on Twitter. She has attracted the endorsements of NME, The Guardian, V Magazine, Paper, Rolling Stone (who hailed her a “rising popstar”) and Billboard who said recent single “BOYSHIT” “makes a late case for one of the best pop chorus openings of 2020.” Madison was also tapped as a VEVO Lift artist for 2021, joining alumni Billie Eilish, Halsey, and SZA, and is the MTV Push artist for March.

The long-awaited debut, Life Support, is defiantly Madison, an album written as catharsis, delivered as a document of all she’s experienced and a self-care guide to coming out the other side.

Don’t just stand there to stand there!” The /singer created a viral frenzy for her 2019 style anthem, “Runway.” After releasing a project independently and inking a deal with Epic Records, she is inevitably poised to be one of Hip-Hop’s most anticipated voices of the new decade. “I’m a threat!” she promises.Born and raised in Northern California, music offered a refuge from a tragic home life.

Like, ‘Bitch, you look like you’re fresh off the runway. I really just wanted to keep making music that got people to move.” Now, with her major label debut EP on the way, she’s about to shine like never before in 2020.

BAHARI RELEASE REMIX OF VIRAL HIT “SAVAGE” FEATURING BIA

“…the epitome of California cool…” – Nylon

“The LA-based duo’s haze of intricated layered music and breathy beats has put a spell all over the music charts…”– Ladygunn
Delicious alt-pop tunes…” – Euphoria
“… the piping hot pop duo[…]base their sound around intricate harmonies and lyrics detailing the realities of their lives as young women.” – Ones To Watch

(July 17, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – Today, rising alt-pop duo Bahari release a special remix of their 100 million stream-generating viral hit “Savage” featuring rapper BIA. Get it HERE via Epic Records/Heroine Music Group. The Los Angeles-based duo—comprised of Ruby Carr[vocals, keyboards] and Natalia Panzarella [vocals, bass]—will unveil more new music very soon.

The original “Savage” catalyzed the duo’s rise and has been certified Gold by the RIAA. Now, the remix incorporates nimble rhymes from BIA amidst airy flutes, cinematic strings, and a hard-hitting hook.  Additionally, they turn up in a sexy and slick accompanying music video.

About this new take, the duo commented, “We decided to write a song that emboldened and empowered us as two young women who had recently gone through difficult relationships. A lot of what we write is very vulnerable, so we flipped it around and said, ‘We feel good about ourselves.’ We needed a strong female artist for the remix, and BIA was a perfect fit.”

On this Saturday, July 18 at 5pm PT, Bahari join the powerhouse bill of a virtual concert event to celebrate the vinyl release of To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You Original Soundtrack.

Singer and keyboardist Ruby Carr hails from the tiny island of Lamu off the coast of Kenya, while singer and bassist Natalia Panzarella was born in Nashville but grew up in Southern California. Each of their experiences shapes a dynamic, diverse, and dark take on alternative pop. Generating over 650 million streams and receiving acclaim from LadygunnNylonBillboardOnes To Watch, and more, the Los Angeles-based duo bring a shared vision to life.

They maintained a consistent pace with the Dancing on the Sun EP [2016] and singles “Get Together” and “Fucked Up. Along the way, they supported Selena Gomez and Birdy on tour and teamed up with Zedd, ILLENIUMand Grey for collaborations. After quietly grinding, Bahari earned a viral hit with 2018’s “Savage. Not only did the song generate over 100 million total streams, but it also went gold. Signing to Epic Records, the pair reup “Savage” with an Official Remix featuring rapper BIA, heralding their 2020 full-length debut and much more to come.
