NOTE MARCATO RELEASES NEW SINGLE & MUSIC VIDEO FOR “RAFIKI”

DEBUT ALBUM “BEACHBUM LIMBO ARRIVES OCTOBER 2, 2020 

(September 18 – New York, NY) – Projecting a vision unlike anything else in the game, bold, brash, and buzzing artist and producer Note Marcato uncovers his debut single for “Rafiki”today.  

Get it HERE via Epic Records

Note Marcato took to Instagram Monday evening giving fans a cinematic introduction with a must watch trailer that announces his debut album “BeachBum Limbo” will arrive October 2nd, 2020

To accompany the trailer, he just unleashed the music video for “Rafiki”. With the echoes of a skittering beat, Note Marcato vaults from bouncy verses into a fluttering, yet fiery refrain on the self-produced track. Meanwhile, the avant-garde music video opens with an introduction to “Who Note Marcato is.” It all forgoes asking listeners to raise their hands and instead demands they lift the mask covering societal insecurities.

Watch it HERE via Vevo/YouTube.

He paved the way for the project with the buzzing single Blackheart 39.” Now, “Rafiki” his second single brings us closer of his forthcoming album BeachBum Limbo. Executive produced by BL$$D, the project features production by G Koop (Rihanna, Migos) and Soundz (Justin Bieber, Chris Brown), with guest vocals from Anatti, Nelson Mandela’s grandson, among others. Ten of the tracks were produced by Note Marcato himself.  You can hear the angst and love within the lyrics as much as the meticulousness the young artist put into each track’s mix. So that the listeners can experience the same energy the 6’4” comet channeled to birth his EP, each song plays chronologically to when it was recorded.  

His face and sound will be long remembered.

About Note Marcato:

Whether introduced to Note Marcato in-person or through his music, there are two characteristics that will remain impressed upon you: the wattage and amorphousness of his star power. The 19-year-old producer and songwriter takes zero form. There isn’t a box that fits him, nor a space he can’t imbue. The only borders associated with the New York University Clive Davis Institute pupil is his professional moniker. Note Marcato is an Italian representation of the 3-4 music note, which is intended to be played the loudest. Marcato’s sound doesn’t prioritize volume as much as it does an exponentially higher standard. The evidence lives on his Epic Records debut EP, BeachBum Limbo, a project not for the times, but of and for many eras, some of which haven’t arrived yet. Note Marcato is a gift from Later. 

That Note Marcato’s debut was inspired by blue skies and warm tides makes perfect sense. BeachBum Limbois an oceanic body of sonic that offers waves of colorful vibes and emotions. It possesses an urgency that belies the age of its author. “I make music as if I’m trying to save the world,” says Note Marcato. His creative intention explains why his singular sound belongs to no particular region yet manages to represent the globe. His modus operandi: Break the rules and create tomorrow. 

“Normally your Marcato is the climax of a song or parts of it,” he says. “So I wanted to try and make an entire album where every song is Marcato.”

NEW VIDEO OUT FOR “SUPER HOT” OUT NOW

BLAC YOUNGSTA & MONEYBAGG YO RELEASE THEIR JOINT MIXTAPE,CODE RED TODAY

(September 18, 2020 – New York, NY) – Today marks the release of Blac Youngsta and Moneybagg Yo’s collaboration, Code Red released via N-Less Entertainment/Interscope Records with Epic Records/CMG Enterprises. 

Listen to Code Red HERE.

The Tennessee natives have major history – they both got their start in the same hip-hop group, Memphis Greatest Unrated (MGU) before their careers took off. As the years went by, they went on to work on several tracks together including fan favorite “1 2 3,” an undeniably hard-hitting track that appeared on Bagg’s critically acclaimed album Time Served. The single went on to amass over 140 million streams globally, reach gold status and chart top 5 at Urban radio. With Code Red the pair continues to showcase their electric chemistry, “it felt like some 2pac and Biggie shit the whole time we were recording” Blac Youngsta shares while Bagg stated, “I knew this project was going to be hard, every time we link it’s pressure.” The thirteen-track project includes features from Yo Gotti, 42 Dugg, City Girls, DaBaby and more as well as a video for “Super Hot.” 

Directed by GT Films (Lil Baby, Lil Yachty, Birdman) in “Super Hot” the duo matches their notable energy,“the video shows what you get from me and Bagg every time we do a song together it’s always something SUPER HOT,” says Youngsta. The Tahj Money produced track is a fiery, no-holds-barred banger about being the two being on an entirely different level of status, a level unreachable that the two have both achieved. Earlier this year Bagg told Billboard “every time we get together, it’s a movie” which is evident in the vibrant video filled with fancy bikes, beautiful women, and expensive jewelry. 

Watch “Super Hot” HERE.

LIZA OWEN RETURNS WITH BRAND NEW SINGLE “GETTING GOOD”
“Liza Owen could just be the UK’s next breakout pop star.” – Notion
“A hazy yet poised grace that soothes the soul and enchants the ear.” – Complex
 
September 17, 2020 (Los Angeles, CA) – Pop songstress Liza Owen returns to the spotlight unfiltered with her brand new single, “Getting Good” via EPIC Records. Written alongside co-writers Julian Bunetta, Shungudzo, John Ryan, Andrew Haas, and Ian Franzino and produced by ASL, “Getting Good” tells the ultimate story of self-destruction and the lengths we go to leading ourselves down the wrong paths. Listen to the track on all digital streaming platforms HERE, and check out the visualizer HERE.
 
Reminiscent of early 90s guitar-driven grunge, the song opens with a hypnotic rhythm played on the triangle, instantly drawing listeners in. In the chorus, Liza echoes, “I’m getting good at wasting time, With my friends in neon lights, Live a lifetime in one night, I’m getting good at counting cars, Getting good at hating songs, Getting good at getting gone,” fully embracing the song’s theme. “Getting Good” explores the dualities that live inside all of us in a raw, honest, and unapologetic fashion – true to Liza Owen’s nature.
 
“This song is really about self destruction and recognising that sometimes we’re all a bit lost,” says Liza. “It’s kind of a dark song, but there’s also a weird sense of empowerment in just owning that darker side of yourself and all your floors.”
 
Earlier this summer, Liza Owen released her fiery debut single, “Why Aren’t We Having Sex?,” asking the pervasive quarantine question that’s on many people’s minds. The song and its equally sultry music video premiered exclusively via Flaunt Magazine and gained additional praise from NoisetrendHollywood Life, and Euphoria, who called it “a sexy sonic gem [that] sets the tone for what is hopefully even more spicy music to come from Owen.” Watch the music video HERE.
 
About Liza Owen
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, returning with her next unforgettable single “Getting Good.”

NEW PROJECT COMING THIS FALL

JOHN K RELEASES NEW SINGLE “HAPPINESS” TODAY

(September 11, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – Recently RIAA-certified platinum pop singer and songwriter John K is back with a brand new single “Happiness” today. Get it HERE via Epic Records. It also heralds the arrival of his forthcoming new project due out this fall.

This unpredictable and undeniable anthem showcases the scope of his sharp songwriting and dynamic voice. Spreading some light for the age of quarantine, the track builds from soft guitar-laden verses into a falsetto-spiked hook as he asks, “Happiness, where you been? Where you gone? Are you coming back?”

About “Happiness,” John commented, “I’m part of a group chat with friends in the music industry, and years ago, we started what we call ‘The Song Game’ where every week we pick a topic and each of us have to submit a new song. One week, the theme was ‘HAPPY’, and our friend (Jesse Fink) submitted the first verse and chorus of ‘Happiness.’ We all loved the concept and knew it was special, but ultimately decided it didn’t fit the direction the project was going at the time, so we shelved it. Fast forward two years later, the world shuts down, and there’s just a big question mark hanging over everybody’s head. Suddenly, it couldn’t be more relevant to personify happiness as a person you haven’t seen in a while. We wrote a second verse and finished the song, knowing we didn’t want to wait any longer to release it. I’m so proud of ‘Happiness’ and can’t wait for my fans to hear it.”

John’s breakthrough single “if we never met” just received a platinum certification from the RIAA garnering over 225 million streams and counting. Additionally, his 2020 track “6 Months” has eclipsed 22 million streams, while the official video premiered on tmrw Magazine who named the visual, “perfect for current times when we’re all longing to leave quarantine and see our loved ones again.”

ABOUT JOHN K

Known for capturing the essence of an eternal summer, Florida native John K quietly cemented himself as an independent artist to watch in 2017 when he was handpicked as Elvis Duran’s “Artist of the Month,” allowing him to appear on the TODAY Show with a performance of his breakout single “OT.” Crediting his soulful vocals and effortless cool to influences ranging from Bill Withers and Donnie Hathaway to Jon Bellion, Ed Sheeran and Drake, he continued to make waves in 2019 by signing to Epic Records and releasing his if we never met EP, which landed him features with Billboard, Rolling Stone, Forbes and more. RIAA Platinum-certified single “if we never met” propelled him in into 2020, with a version featuring Kelsea Ballerini and a return to the TODAY Show to perform the song. Garnering over 225 million streams, “if we never met” was followed by the heartfelt single “6 months” where he continued to stake out coveted real estate on top Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music playlists. Now, John K returns with “Happiness” and prepares for the release of his highly anticipated project this Fall.

INDIA SHAWN UNVEILS NEW SINGLE & MUSIC VIDEO “MOVIN’ ON” FEATURING ANDERSON .PAAK !

August 28, 2020 – (Los Angeles, CA) – Today, acclaimed Los Angeles singer, songwriter, and artist India Shawn presents a new single and music video entitled “Movin’ On” [feat. Anderson .Paak]. 

Get it HERE via Epic Records.

The accompanying cinematic visual notably marks the directorial debut of three-time GRAMMY® Award winner Anderson .Paak and features cameos from the esteemed group The Free Nationals and R&B singer/songwriters Ambré and Kirby.

The video premieres today on BET Soul and also on YouTube with an exclusive fan chat.

About the song, India commented, “ ‘Movin’ On’ is the magic that happens when you get your dream producer D’Mile and dream collaborator Anderson .Paak on the same track! It’s good energy all around, which helps to anchor the message of moving away from a toxic situation into a space that feels GOOD.

Watch it HERE

In the clip, India sips a little too much at a friend’s wedding only to wake up the next day with a new focus on wellness, self-care, and change in the aftermath of a relationship’s end. In addition to lensing the action as his official directorial debut, Anderson .Paak’s face pops up in the most surprising of places (on a flower girl at the wedding reception and on a flexible yoga instructor in the park). The beat channels nineties R&B as India’s dynamic delivery once again captivates on this bold breakup anthem. The song continues a longstanding musical relationship between these two disruptors as India has joined The Free Nationals on tour around the world and most recently for an NPR “Tiny Desk” concert. 

“Movin’ On” arrives on the heels of her recent single “NOT TOO DEEP” [feat. 6lack]. The latter has already generated 1.9 million Spotify streams, while the music video clocked 588K-plus YouTube views. Receiving critical praise, UPROXX placed it among “All The Best New R&B From This Week That You Need To Hear, and Rated R&B exclaimed, “She is more than ready and capable of telling the world what she has to say.” Nylon featured the song on “Soundcheck: The 10 Best Music Releases of the Week” and described it as “a cut for those crucial incense-lighting hours. 

ABOUT INDIA SHAWN

Los Angeles songstress India Shawn champions self-love and divine femininity within her soulfully sultry, psychedelia-infused R&B. Breaking into the business during 2010, she penned songs for everyone from Chris Brown and Diddy-Dirty Money to El DebargeKeri Hilson, and Monica as part of the writing collective Full Circle. Following her 2012 debut Origin, she made waves and turned heads as an artist with “I’m Alive”—which Solange Knowles touted on the 2013 Saint Heron compilation. Opening for Raury and Ryan Leslie, she lent her voice to Ludacris’s chart-topping Ludaversal and served up the Outer Limits EP during 2015. Along the way, she garnered praise from tastemakers, including HYPEBEASTBillboardOkayplayerRolling OutVibe, and more.  In 2019, Kanye West sought her out to perform as part of the historic Sunday Service at Coachella 2019. Anderson .Paak also invited her on the road to finish up the year as she began recording her next chapter.

About the track, Rence commented, “Taken at face value the lyrics of ‘Strawberry Blonde’ tell a story about someone worried about everything – their past, the future, everything – their unsureness is taking a toll on the relationship, and signals aren’t clear. To me, it’s the secondary meaning that really rings true. As I sat with the song for a while, I realized that I was talking about myself thinking things too much. I assumed we’re free of blame and worry, when really we’re the ones freaking out.”

TAKEN FROM DEBUT 

ALBUM LIFE SUPPORT

WATCH HERE

(Los Angeles, CA – August 21 2020) Today sees Madison Beer release her latest single “Baby” via Sing It Loud/First Access Entertainment on exclusive license to Epic Records. With the drop of the single comes a dreamy voyeuristic video that finds Madison plucked from a picturesque scene and dropped into the dark reality of life. “Baby” is taken from Madison’s forthcoming debut full length album Life Support, out later this year. You can listen to the single here.

“I’m so excited for ‘Baby’ to be out in the world,” states Madison. “The video was such a labor of love – visuals are so key for me. I wanted it to feel cinematic, a little sexy and dark while still being fun. I drew some of the inspiration from cancel culture, and how even when people try to get you down, you just have to go out there and continue to be the badass that you are. I want my fans to put on this song and feel like they can conquer the world.”

Madison’s debut album, a strong personal and artistic statement, is slated for release later this year. “Her soon to be released album,” states V Magazine, “will surely pay homage to her years of growth in the spotlight with an entirely new depth of clarity.” Life Support sees Madison where she thrives – commanding complete creative control through writing her own songs, producing and creating her own visuals. The album will feature previous releases “Good In Goodbye,” “Selfish,” and “Stained Glass” which have a combined total stream count of over 282 million. “Selfish” is now also certified Gold in the US.

Prior to signing with Epic Records late last year, Madison Beer achieved unprecedented success as an independent artist with her partner First Access Entertainment. Her debut EP As She Pleases boasts over 950 million streams and made 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, Beer has over 2 billion streams across her catalogue. 

She’s attracted the endorsement of Time, NME, V MagazineBillboard who named her among its coveted “21 Under 21” list and Rolling Stone who hailed her as a “raising pop star.” Madison will be debuting “Baby” on The Late Late show with James Corden on August 26th.

RICK ROSS RELEASES NEW SINGLE “PINNED TO THE CROSS” FEATURING FINN MATTHEWS

(Los Angeles — August 7) On the heels of the VERZUZ TV celebration of his illustrious 15-year career in the game, Rick Ross delivers a soul stirring new record, “Pinned to the Cross,” which he debuted directly following last night’s Verzuz battle with 2 Chainz. 

The song features supporting vocals from 20-year-old singer Finn Matthews and production from Fuse of 808 Mafia, as well as AraabMuzik. It brings Ross’ time-tested lyrical ability and insightfulness to the forefront, perhaps when his fans need it from him the most.

Get “Pinned to the Cross” HERE [via MMG/Epic Records]

It quickly becomes apparent that Ross has spent much of his quarantine reflecting on the seismic changes society has undergone over the last few months. “We was pinned to the cross since our birth under the sun,” he raps wistfully, lamenting over the Black experience in America, which the Miami rep finds to be exhausting—regardless of one’s tax bracket. 

It’s a style that has become a signature one for the multi-platinum artist, who has built a career and has been victorious in high-profile scuffles on the back of his serene-yet-sharp delivery.  A manner which appears often on his most recent LP, 2019’s Port of Miami 2, the sequel to his critically-acclaimed 2006 debut Port of Miami. Longevity has always been important to Ross, and POM2 marked the seventh of his 10 studio albums to debut in the top two on the Billboard 200 albums chart, including five no. 1 debuts. To boot, his latest single with Drake, “Gold Roses,” earned a RIAA Gold certification and was Grammy Nominated.

In this era of uncertainty, a leader with a powerful and consistent voice is needed. In “Pinned to the Cross” Rick Ross reminds us, he is here to stay.

BAHARI UNLEASH NEW SINGLE “WAKING UP THE NEIGHBORS”

(July 31, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – Today, rising alt-pop duo Bahari release a new single and music video entitled “Waking Up The Neighbors. Get it HERE via Bahari Music, LLC/Epic Records/Heroine Music Group and watch the official music video HERE.

On the track, edgy vocals echo between tip-toeing strings and overpowering bass. The hypnotic duet flutters from haunting verses towards a dark invitation, “Treat me like a stranger. Pick your party favors. Fight until my face hurts. Waking up the neighbors.  

“Waking up the neighbors is an ode to the feeling of paranoia, the feeling of chaos in your mind when you realize that things are not as they seem,” says the duo. “This song stems from anxiety and we wanted to showcase the feelings we go through when having those emotions, by bringing in sonic elements that have drastic differences, like the silence, the dramatic drops, the screaming and then the soft harmonies.“

In the music video, the girls go for a covert midnight swim in a neighbor’s pool only to end up around a table choreographed in synch with an out of this world ritual… View it at your own peril now. 

Once again, “Waking Up The Neighbors” showcases the depth and dynamics of Bahari’s world.

Earlier this month, they uncovered a special remix of their viral hit “Savage” featuring a new verse from rapper BIA, along with a brand new video, which Elevator Magazine called “intimate and dark.” The original track has generated over 100 million streams and was certified Gold by the RIAA.  Watch the video for the remix HERE.  Additionally, they joined an all-star bill for a virtual concert in celebration of the vinyl release of To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You Original Soundtrack, in which their celebrated track “Crashing” with ILLENIUM is featured. Watch their performance HERE.

Get ready for Bahari to flip pop upside down in 2020.

Bahari is exclusively managed worldwide by 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 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.

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 38.1 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. Not only did the song generate over 100 million total streams, but it also went Gold. Signing to Epic Records, the pair are gearing up for their 2020 full-length debut and much more to come.

PREMIERES MUSIC VIDEO FOR TITLE TRACK “HELP”

“You need to listen to Morgan Saint” – i-D

“Morgan Saint is the relatable pop star with a vision” – V MAGAZINE

“Pop’s Moody New Hero” – L’OFFICIEL

“Morgan Saint is the honest artist that pop music desperately needs” – GALORE

MORGAN SAINT RETURNS WITH NEW EP HELP

(July 24, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA)  Tastemaker-approved genre-defiant alternative pop antihero Morgan Saint returns with a brand new EP entitled HELP today. Get it HERE via Epic Records.

Additionally, she shares the music video for the title track and first single “HELP.” Watch it HERE.

Shot in green night vision during quarantine, the claustrophobic clip translates the tension of the song’s love triangle into a Blair Witch­-style freak out. Meanwhile, the song fuses skittering hi-hats to her airy delivery before she asks, “Can you love somebody if you love somebody else?” Fittingly, she punctuates this anthem with a scream.

Morgan personally co-produced each song on the EP, assembling a clear vision. She teased out the sexy transmissions of “DON’T BE SCARED” on social media last week, and Idolator christened it “a racy banger…We stan a sex-positive queen!” Whether it be the piano twinkle of “THIS CITY” or the ethereal glimmer of “I DREAMT THAT I KNEW YOU, the project filters emotional confessions through a kaleidoscope of immersive production and impressive vocal delivery. 

Her most personal project yet, Morgan shares, “this new music is a pretty big shift for me. I really completely rejected and broke down every box that I had put myself in creatively. I haven’t held back on anything, and it feels amazing! This project was truly from my heart and brain directly to you. HELP is bold, blunt and honest.”

Check out the full tracklisting below.

Of the EP, Idolator observed, “The growth between 17 HERO and ALIEN was monumental, so who knows where her beautiful mind is at in 2020.

The last time we heard from Morgan Saint was on 2019’s “god bless our souls.” Receiving claim out of the gate, Ones To Watchpraised how she “blessed the world with a means to spiritual enlightenment.” Meanwhile, PAPER called the song a “minimal balled about a dark and stormy love affair” highlighting that “the song’s melodramatic edge and twisty melodies are what truly sell it.” They also included her among “Eight Faces Defining the Future of Fashion” this year. Not to mention, she lent her voice to BEAM’s single “NUMB” and toured alongside Dennis Lloyd and LÉON.

You may recognize Morgan Saint as the genre- and gender-defiant alternative pop extraterrestrial behind a string of critically acclaimed releases since her 2017 landing. The Long Island native picked up guitar and piano as a kid before attending Parsons New School for Design. She incited a growing buzz with the 17 HERO EP in 2017. A year later, the ALIEN EP established her as a fan and tastemaker favorite. Along the way, she received praise from Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Time, Allure, i-D, V Magazine, Interview, Rollacoaster, Notion, WWD, Idolator, Ones to Watch and Paper who crowned her one of “100 Women Revolutionizing Pop.Simultaneously, this intriguing live performer entranced crowds at Lollapalooza and Life Is Beautiful in addition to on tours with BanksGoldfrappLÉONDennis Lloydlovelytheband and more. However, the singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist finally presents the full picture in 2020. Morgan’s HELP EP [Epic Records] casts a glow on the fire, flirtatiousness, and freedom of her personality. At some points, she haunts. At other points, she seduces. Throughout, the songstress clings to unmatched honesty.

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

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.

BREAK-OUT SINGLE “HIGH RIGHT NOW” OFFICIALLY CERTIFIED GOLD

TYLA YAWEH RELEASES NEW SINGLE “STUNTIN’ ON YOU” FEATURING DABABY

(July 17 — Los Angeles, CA) Tyla Yaweh levels up yet another notch this summer with the release of his new single, “Stuntin’ On You,” featuring a red-hot DaBaby and bouncy production from Hitmaka. The official music video for the track, shot by Wolf Sauce and directed byChris Villa, also debuted earlier today. Get the song HERE via London Entertainment/Epic Records and watch the video HERE.

“Stuntin’ On You” seamlessly marries Tyla’s effortless delivery and DaBaby’s enthralling double-time flows, making for one of Tyla’s smoothest collaborations yet. The a bonafide summer anthem is full of exuberant energy in which Tyla begins and ends his verse paying homage to a key innovator on the “Stuntin’” timeline, Cash Money, briefly paying homage to Juvenile’s famous “Ha” flow and dropping a “bling bling” reference to close it out. His partner in rhyme, DaBaby, never has any issues delivering bars of opulence himself. The combo is searing, and the results shine brightly. 

The song comes on the heels of Tyla’s single “Tommy Lee” featuring Post  Malone “Tommy Lee” has become Tyla’s biggest hit to-date: in just under a month, the song has amassed 43 million streams, while the video has topped 18 million views. Additionally, upon release, the song received most added honors at Rhythmic radio and received love across the board on DSPs with playlisting such as Apple Music’s Hip-Hop Rap Songs and Spotify’s New Music Friday and Today’s Top Hits, while continuously staying in Spotify’s Weekly US Top 200, Daily US Top 200 and US Viral Top 50 Charts. Upon release, the track also hit the Top 10 on the iTunes store.  Rolling Stone named him the #1 artist on the latest Breakthrough 25 chart, which ranks the fastest-rising new artists of the month. Most impressive, it is Tyla’s first entry on the Billboard Hot 100. Just last week, none other than Tommy Lee himself joined Tyla and Posty for a special remix of the song, along with a music video. Watch the video for the remix HERE and watch the original HERE

Additionally, his break-out single, “High Right Now,” taken from his acclaimed 2019 debut project Heart Full of Rage, is now officially certified Gold by the RIAA. All of the momentum readies the release of Tyla Yaweh’s upcoming debut LP, RAGER BØY, coming soon.

In a recent interview with NME, which recognizes Tyla as an “Essential Artist” for 2020, the Florida-bred “rockstar” had this to say about his upcoming studio album: “There’s no genre, you can’t put one genre to each song.” He further explained, “it’s just good music…just put your mind in different places you never thought you could be.”

As “Tommy Lee” and “Stuntin’ On You” set the tone, the stage is set for Tyla to Rage throughout 2020 and beyond.

What The Press Is Saying About Tyla Yaweh…
“[‘Tommy Lee’ is] a hedonistic ode to life on the road…” – NME
 
“Tyla Yaweh is undoubtedly on the precipice of stardom…On ‘Tommy Lee,’ Yaweh connects with his big homie for the guitar-laden anthem, which pays homage to the ’90s rock legend.” – Billboard
 
“…this collaboration with Malone [“Tommy Lee”] feel[s] so seamless…” – Complex
 
“[One of 2020’s) Biggest Rising Talents In Hollywood.” – Wall Street Journal Magazine
 
“…[a] rising charismatic artist…Influenced by artists from Jimi Hendrix to Lil Wayne, Yaweh, whose love of fashion doesn’t go unnoticed either, brings together his love for hip hop and rock organically.” – The Recording Academy
 
“…Yaweh is all set to level up. Get to know him…” – XXL

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.

DJ Khaled, music industry mogul, executive, mega producer and multi-platinum award-winning recording artist has been signed to Epic Records by Chairman & CEO LA Reid, in an exclusive deal that encompasses Khaled’s highly successful We The Best Music Group, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2016. Khaled’s hotly anticipated new album, MAJOR KEY, his first release for We The Best/Epic Records, will be available soon.
“Bringing Khaled to Epic is a blessed reunion for me,” said Mr. Reid, who first signed Khaled and We The Best to Def Jam Recordings in 2008. “Khaled is a supremely gifted artist and social media guru whose music has defined hip-hop and R&B for the past decade. With an extremely loyal fan base radiating world­wide out of Miami, every new release by Khaled has now become a firestorm event and his devoted legion of fans only grows bigger by the day. With Khaled’s passion and creative savvy, together with our dedicated and versatile staff, we are poised to reach even greater heights together than ever before.”

“After weeks of consideration I have made a decision on where to land the biggest brand in the game. A brand that has been built from the ground up. A brand that I spent my entire life building even before I gave it a name. Today I proudly announce my new partnership with LA Reid and Epic Records,” said DJ Khaled. “We The Best Music/Epic. Those two brands are synonymous with quality music. Iconic music. LA Reid was the first executive to give We The Best Music an opportunity to distribute my music on a grand scale. It is a very satisfying feeling to realign myself with someone who shares my vision of bringing fans the best music possible. When I think about Epic Records the first thing that comes to mind is Michael Jackson Thriller. An iconic artist with an iconic album and iconic logo. In short I’d like to thank all the people behind the scenes that helped make this partnership a reality. And to all aspiring superstars across the globe I say this I AM SEARCHING FOR NEW TALENT TO PRESENT TO THE WORLD! When it comes to breaking new artists, no one does it better than WE THE BEST MUSIC!! I’m also proud to announce my new album title to the world. Fan luv you’ve been asking me to bless you with new music. The wait is over!!! My 9th album MAJOR KEY is the best album of my career and I do it all for my fans. Stay tuned for new singles alert!!! New artist alert!!!! I’m looking for you!!! It’s We The Best Music/Epic. The next chapter of success has begun. The “machine” is the most powerful it’s ever been! Intact it’s the biggest machine in the game. Don’t ever question it!!!! It’s We The Best Music. It’s Epic. Bless up!”
Referred to in the music industry as the “Quincy Jones of hip-hop & R&B,” Khaled has made dozens of chart topping hit records featuring collaborations with the greatest names in music. His most recent (eighth) studio album, I Changed A Lot (October 2015), entered the Billboard Independent Albums chart at #1 and R&B chart at #2. The album spun off a quintet of chart singles including “They Don’t Love You No More,” “Hold You Down” (RIAA gold), “How Many Times” (RIAA gold), “Gold Slugs,” and “You Mine.”

As one of the biggest personalities on social media, what separates Khaled from the pack is his globally viewed Snapchat account (@djkhaled305), with over 6+ million followers devoted to his inspirational and often whimsical quotes on achieving success in life. In homage to him, Khaled’s legion of worldwide fans are constantly creating short videos and posts on Snapchat as well as other social media platforms, including Instagram (where he has over 3+ million followers) and Twitter (with nearly 3 million followers).
“His Snapchat is a renewable source of relentless positivity,” wrote Jon Caramanica in the New York Times, “a kind of choose-your-own adventure motivational talk. It succeeds in the space between laugh-with and laugh-at; he endlessly replays the same scenes and motifs, a Groundhog Day of braggadocio and encouragement. His catchphrases — ‘Another one,’ ‘Bless up,’ ‘They don’t want you to …’ – have become a lingua franca. He is now the foremost user of the key emoji, and, in his discussions of ‘major keys of success,’ has rescued that emoji from obscurity.”
DJ Khaled released his debut, Listennn… the Album in 2006, coinciding with the launch of his independent label, We The Best. After establishing himself on a series of platinum-selling singles over the next two years (“We Takin’ Over,” “I’m So Hood,” “Out Here Grindin”), Khaled signed his first major distribu­tion deal for We The Best with Def Jam in 2008, under Mr. Reid’s watch as then-Chairman. Khaled’s breakthrough was 2010’s 3x-platinum “All I Do Is Win” (from Victory), followed by “I’m On One” in 2011 (from We The Best Forever). To date, Khaled has sold over 15 million singles worldwide.

We The Best Music Group, founded in 2006, comprises a record label, management company, publishing company, production company, and its own full-fledged studio.
