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

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

 

The song is HERE via Sony Music Entertainment.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

ABOUT CHEVELLE:

Since the release of their full-length debut Point #1 in 1999, CHEVELLE have stood at the forefront of hard rock, consistently evolving and progressing while delivering a series of ubiquitous and inescapable anthems. 2002’s breakout Wonder What’s Next would go platinum, yielding smashes such as “The Red” and “Send the Pain Below, while its follow-up This Type of Thinking Could Do Us In reached gold status. In 2011, Hats Off to the Bull landed at #9 on the Billboard Top 200 and delivered “Face to the Floor. La Gárgola crashed into the Top 5 at #3 and boasted “Take Out the Gunman.2016’s The North Corridor represented new heights for the group, marking its fourth Top 10 bow on the Billboard Top 200.

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Below is the tracklisting for On This Holiday, which resounds with all the illuminating warmth of the holiday season!

JESSIE JAMES DECKER SHARES ROUSING NEW SINGLE “BOOTS”


POWERHOUSE COUNTRY POP SIREN RETURNS WITH COUNTRY POP BANGER

 

(September 28, 2018 –Los Angeles, CAToday, powerhouse country pop singer/songwriter Jessie James Decker gets back to what she does best, winding it up and walking tall with a scorching new single, “Boots,” delivering her brassy vocals and bring-it-on authenticity with a little extra baditude on this one! Get it HERE. The song is also featured in Just Fab’s fall campaign starring Decker, who recently announced teaming up with the online retailer for a boot-focused collaboration.

 

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

 

The spirited “Boots” has all the signature attributes of yet another hit from the down-to-earth artist. It’s been nearly a year since she shared new music, coming off the successful cycle of last autumn’s Epic Records debut album, Southern Girl City Lights, her second studio album. The release went live as the #1 Country Album on iTunes and arrived as a chart-topping entry on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, Decker’s first #1 on that platform. With the anthemic “Boots” sure to be celebrated by Decker fans as another awesome display of her prodigious range and talent, she is once again putting the country world on notice that no one can fill her BOOTS!

 

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

 

Most recently, she’s added in-demand author to her growing list of accomplishments. Offering a wider glimpse into her amazing journey, she’s written a gorgeously illustrated lifestyle book, Just Jessie, My Guide to Love, Life, Family, and Food, set for release by Dey Street Books on October 2.

The GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum producer, rapper, influencer, and philanthropist teases new highly anticipated album with three new tracks led by the title track and first single No Stylist” [feat. Drake] as well as “Nervous” and “Juice.” 

 

Get it HERE via Coke Boys Music/Bad Boy Entertainment/Epic Records.

 

Shimmering synths and a beat-thumping underscore the hypnotic and high-fashion No Stylist, which celebrates leaders and rule breakers who have broken barriers in fashion and hip hop throughout the years. Meanwhile, French’s inimitable cadence bobs and weaves towards a falsetto chant, “Iced out, no stylist.” Capitalizing on longstanding and explosive chemistry, Drake turns up with a fiery cameo of his own that scorches on impact with each bar.

 

Additionally, the rappers returned to the Big Apple in order to shoot the song’s cinematic music video on French’s home turf. A few legendary surprise guests make appearances—including Dapper DanSlick RickCam’ron and more to be revealed soon. The music video officially premieres on Friday September 28, 2018.

All three anthems set the stage for the 2019 release of his anxiously awaited third full-length and follow-up to 2017’s chart-topping and gold-certified, JUNGLE RULES. He hinted at more to big things on the horizon when gracing a recent cover of Billboard. Check it out HERE.

 

French Montana season is upon us…

 

     

 

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.

LEGENDARY GLOBAL ICON MARIAH CAREY RETURNS WITH NEW MUSIC

SHARES NEW SONG “GTFO” AVAILABLE NOW

NEW SINGLE “WITH YOU” COMING IN EARLY OCTOBER

BOTH TRACKS FROM NEW STUDIO ALBUM OUT LATER THIS YEAR

(September 13, 2018 – Los Angeles, CA) – Today, incomparable, multi-platinum, multiple Grammy award winning global superstar Mariah Carey (the best-selling female artist of all time with 18 Hot 100 #1 hits) returns with the first taste of her new music, “GTFO,” available worldwide now. Get it HERE via Epic Records!

 

The new song is a tempting first helping from her upcoming new album, due out later this year, whetting fans’ appetites for the album’s stunning kickoff single, “With You,” scheduled for an October 5 release. Both tracks are from her upcoming 15th studio album, her first studio album since 2014. “GTFO” is produced by Grammy nominated/multiple ASCAP award winner Nineteen85, who has worked with Drake and Jordan Manswell (Daniel Caesar), among others. An early treat for fans, atmospheric beats abound on the new track, with Mariah finding even more nuance in her seamlessly-spun vocal repertoire, her velvety, middle-range virtuosity once again dazzling in breathy hues. The sultry track is the first serving of new music from the acclaimed singer/songwriter/producer since inking an exclusive partnership with her imprint Butterfly MC Records and Epic in the spring of 2017. Mariah will share the music video for the new song tomorrow, September 14. The clip is directed by Sarah McColgan (Kelly Clarkson, Charli XCX). Her official single, “With You,” which arrives on October 5, seductively sets the stage for Mariah’s eagerly anticipated album coming later in 2018.

 

The announcement of the new songs, coming on the heels of her much-heralded Las Vegas Residency, ‘The Butterfly Returns,’ marks the impassioned return of one of the most revered and identifiable voices in pop history. She’s also putting the finishing touches on her forthcoming album. The flurry of creative activity has turned up the buzz with her enormous social media following, heightening the unbreakable rapport between the personable star and her avid fan base which she affectionately refers to as her ‘lambily.’ “I wanted to give my fans and everyone a first listen that wasn’t so serious,” says Mariah. “I’ve had so much fun making this album, and I wanted the first moment to reflect that light-hearted spirit.”

 

Mariah’s enthusiasm extends to her recent live endeavors. The multitalented star finished up her Caesar’s Palace residency on September 10 to rave reviews, and will be performing at the eighth annual iHeartRadio Music Festival at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena on September 21. A range of unique promotional ventures are in the works for fall, surrounding the October 5 “With You” release and subsequent video, with more surprises in store for fans to close out the year. Mariah has also announced plans to continue ‘The Butterfly Returns’ headlining show at the Colosseum in Caesar’s Palace in February of 2019.

 

Exhibiting a transcendent vocal ability, irrepressible staying power and unparalleled body of work that only a handful of artists in the modern era have achieved, Mariah Carey is poised to deliver via Epic Records/Butterfly MC Records one of the most accomplished albums of her incredible career.

EPIC RECORDS SIGNS LEGENDARY HIP HOP TRAILBLAZER TIP “T.I.” HARRIS

EPIC RECORDS SIGNS LEGENDARY HIP HOP TRAILBLAZER TIP “T.I.” HARRIS

T.I. SHARES TWO BRAND-NEW TRACKS: “JEFE” FT. MEEK MILL AND “WRAITH” FT. YO GOTI 

NEW ALBUM DIME TRAP COMING SOON

(September 7, 2018 – Atlanta, GA) Today, Epic Records is proud to announce the signing of multi-platinum, multi-Grammy Award-winning artist/producer/actor/entrepreneur Tip “T.I.” Harris. Along with the label signing, T.I. has shared his first taste of new music with two brand-new tracks, available today at all DSPs: “Jefe (featuring Meek Mill)” and “Wraith (featuring Yo Goti).” T.I. is set to release his eagerly anticipated 10THstudio album and first full-length in four years, Dime Trap, later in 2018. Get “Jefe” HERE and “Wraith” HERE via Epic Records/Grand Hustle!

 

Universally recognized as a visionary and groundbreaking entrepreneur—one who led the explosion of southern hip hop music and, specifically, trap, to a mainstream breakthrough–both new songs capture the magnetic rapper at the top of his game; ‘While you were getting going I was getting to it..’ he schools in wicked wisps of wordplay on the mesmerizing “Wraith,” while the hallucinatory “Jefe” overflows with verse and crossbred backing track, including wobblily Spanish horns.

 

Marking 15 years since he released his breakthrough album Trap Muzik, (which helped launch the popular hip hop subgenre), Dime Trap will be the multi-talented artist’s 10th album and truly brings his career full circle. An acclaimed innovator with millions of albums sold and more than 35 million singles, T.I. has been awarded 3 Grammy Awards, 11 Billboard Awards, 3 BET Awards, 2 American Music Awards and more through the years.  Viewed as a seamless collaborator whose prolific musical pairings with seminal superstars include Drake, Beyoncé, Pharrell, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Robin Thicke, M.I.A., Lady Gaga, and others, his recent politically-charged collaboration with Kanye West on “Ye Vs. The People” is also garnering raves. T.I.’s decade-and-a-half stewardship of Grand Hustle Records has produced multiple breakout artists, including Iggy Azalea, Travis Scott, and others, and his purpose-driven 2016 EP Us Or Else courageously addressed police brutality and racial inequality in America, hailed by Rolling Stone as another crucial ‘point on the timeline of the rapper’s growing social conscious.’

 

T.I.’s unique perspective and unwavering perseverance throughout the seismic changes of pop culture has seen him expand his Atlanta based Grand Hustle empire into a diverse conglomerate of brands and entities.  His successful forays into music, film, fashion, books, scripted and unscripted television, technology, sports, lifestyle and real estate ventures have garnered him worldwide acclaim as a multi-platform catalyst behind some of the entertainment industry’s most compelling endeavors. Most recently, he’s locked down deals as an artist/co-owner of the global stream service TIDAL, and co-creator, producer and star of the new BET reality completion series “The Grand Hustle,” where T.I. oversees 16 business-minded participants competing for a six-figure salary and the chance to join his coveted empire. Earlier this summer, T.I. reprised his role in the Marvel sequel “Antman & The Wasp, which has grossed close to $600 million world-wide at the box office, and co-produced the musical drama “Glow Up” as part of the PepsiCo’s Creators League. He has also taken his musical talents to Broadway, having recently received a TONY Award nomination for “Best Original Score (Music and/or Lyrics) Written for the Theatre” for SpongeBob Square Pants: The Musical.

 

Also widely recognized for his influence in the community, T.I. has become an activist and dominant force in social issues around race relations, civil and human rights. In response to mass inequality and the murders of unarmed Black citizens, T.I. began his Us or Else movement where he penned a thought-provoking series of op-Eds in the New York TimesWashington Post and Huffington Post, a socially charged album entitled Us or Else: Letter to the System, followed by a provocative short film. Using that as a platform, T.I. launched a formal charitable, social justice and philanthropic arm, Harris Community Works, dedicated to driving systemic change in underserved communities. His most recent philanthropic work includes relief and support efforts for Puerto Rico, Houston, Colin Kaepernick’s Million Dollar Challenge and more. Recently, T.I. became a coveted member of the Mayor of Atlanta’s Transition Team. In this role, he will support the Mayor and City of Atlanta in policy and advocacy efforts that drive the city of Atlanta forward.

 

Now, with his Epic Records partnership on course and his new album Dime Trap about to be released, the fearless game-changer is once again taking his always-evolving artistic franchise to new heights.

ACCLAIMED DANCEHALL/HIP HOP STAR HOODCELEBRITYY RELEASES NEW EP, INNA REAL LIFE

BREAKOUT STAR SHARES NEW VIDEO FOR TITLE TRACK VIA THE FADER

HOODCELEBRITYY AND MASS APPEAL TEAM UP FOR DOCUMENTARY DETAILING HER RETURN TO HER NATIVE JAMAICA, COMING SOON 

(August 31, 2018 – Los Angeles, CA) Today, surging dancehall/hip hop powerhouse HoodCelebrityy releases her new EP Inna Real Life via Epic Records/KSR Group. The 5-track offering showcases the Jamaican born/Bronx-based breakout star’s surefire delivery and melodic Reggae flow. The EP includes a Fabolous and Trey Songz-assisted remix of her hit “Walking Trophy” and title track “Inna Real Life,” which melds her roots and ferocity with a trademark, culture-moving authenticity. Get it HERE!

 

HoodCelebrityy also shares the empowering video for the song today, directed by Picture Perfect (Cardi B, French Montana), which premiered earlier today via The FADER. Looking absolutely stunning, she declares ‘These clothes are mine…everything I have you know I buy…’ the clip following her through her native Jamaica as she espouses the virtues of her iconic code. Watch it HERE!

 

The multi-talented star has also partnered with urban culture chroniclers Mass Appeal to film a documentary – set to release next week – about her first trip back to her home community in Jamaica in many years and for her first live performance there, held at Sugarman’s Beach, Hellshire, in the St. Catherine Parish district where she was born.

Inna Real Life is thematically in step with “Walking Trophy,” her signature single that affirmed her stature as a stylish new stakeholder in the dancehall/hip hop domain. “Walking Trophy” has raked in millions of streams/views, garnering acclaim from tastemakers like Noisey, which praised HoodCelebrityy’s ‘Kanye-like confidence,’ and the New Yorker, which called her one of the ‘new global faces of dancehall.’

Other tracks on the EP include the heart-wrenching opener “Love,” featuring a haunting vocal by the star braced by spare, pitched percussion and piano; the buoyant “Live Life,” rendered in her colorful, expressive chant with verses like ‘I’ll go shine so bright ‘til I’m blind,’ illuminated by popping dancehall synths and her auto-tuned scat, and the ominous “Get Low.”

Inna Real Life is an infectious tour de force, with HoodCelebrityy taking on all comers with her raw honesty and melodic tongue-twisting, emblematic of the head-turning flamboyance her aptly named persona evokes. “What you see on Instagram or inna real life is always going to be me,” says the star.  “You can never be wrong telling your own story, and Inna Real Life is my story.” Flexing her own exuberant brand of dancehall and hip hop, and following performances at places like the BET experience, MoMA PS1 Warm Up and the main stage at Hot 97’s iconic Summer Jam, she looks forward to enhancing her live presence stateside in the coming months and sharing songs from her new EP Inna Real Life.

 

ABOUT HOODCELEBRITYY:

Deep Reggae roots were ingrained in Tina Pinnock’s DNA growing up in the St. Catherine Parish district of Jamaica. Tina moved to the Bronx while still a pre-teen, soaking up the infectious hip hop culture she would later fuse into her indelible sound that has reinvented the dancehall genre.   Making the most of her of her time working at a Bronx clothing store, she honed her magical sense of style with impromptu freestyle riffs that dazzled friends and store patrons, alike.  After posting one of these performances to her Instagram account, the star – HoodCelebrityy – was born!   Soon, she was turning out hits like her 2016 street banger “The Takeover,” which deftly injected Trap into the Dancehall genre, delivering acclaimed mixtapes in 2017 and the empowering signature smash “Walking Trophy.”  Hailed as an ‘On The Rise Artist’ by The Source, she’s reaped media attention from Noisey to Fader to The New Yorker, and opened up live shows for Shaggy and Cardi B.  She was also featured on a remix of French Montana’s “Famous” from his gold album ‘Jungle Rules,’ with multiple noted remixes of the popular “Walking Trophy” further extending her growing fan base and garnering millions of views on YouTube, the song’s melodic flow and message of self-love resonating with listeners of all backgrounds.

LAUREN SANDERSON RELEASES NEW EP DONT PANIC!

(August 24, 2018 — Los Angeles, CA) — Today, critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Lauren Sanderson unveils her brand new EP, DONT PANIC!, via Epic Records.

Get it HERE.

The six-track project formally opens up her world—underscored by what’s become a signature hybrid of pop ambition, hip-hop gusto, R&B swagger, and alternative mystique.

She introduces DONT PANIC! with the simmering single “The Only One.” Driven by an unpredictable beat and island-kissed reggae grooves, her rap-style cadence builds towards an infectious and irresistible chant.

Beyond the single, the tracklisting spans the sassy, smart, and sharp “Shut Em Up” and delicately heartfelt “Better Anyway.”

Don’t panic, because Lauren Sanderson has arrived to change pop for good.

She recently wrapped up her successful Trust The Universe Tour, which sold out dates in numerous markets across North America. She made a major splash earlier this year, garnering acclaim from Complex, Cosmopolitan, and more as the breakout single “Written in the Stars” [feat. PnB Rock] eclipsed 1.7 million Spotify streams and 1 million YouTube views and counting.

These stories just don’t happen on their own—somebody makes them happen through blood, sweat, tears, and dreams. Completely self-made, the songstress quietly cooked up her self-released EP Spaces in 2017. Upon release, it captured #1 on iTunes Top R&B Albums Chart with no traditional promotion. Additionally, singles like “Fake Love” and “Anyone” [feat. Former Vandal] would both crack the 1 million mark on Spotify. Last year, she independently routed, scheduled, and booked an 18-city tour. Resonating within the hearts and minds of a diehard audience, she not only has amassed over 283K cumulative social followers, but she also often pens letters by hand for them. Earmilk noted, “The boss lady has been delivering classics for the last handful of years and can never be accused of making music without a message.”

Be on the lookout for more music very soon!

TRAVIS SCOTT RELEASES MEGA-ANTICIPATED THIRD ALBUM ASTROWORLD TODAY

#1 ON ITUNES OVERALL TOP ALBUMS CHART!

INVADES MAJOR CITIES WITH MASSIVE “HEADS” ACTIVATIONS

MERCH BUNDLE AVAILABLE NOW

(August 3, 2018 – Los Angeles, CA) – Welcome to ASTROWORLD!

Today, Travis Scott uncovers his third full-length and one of the year’s most-anticipated releases, ASTROWORLD. Get it HERE via Epic Records and Cactus Jack Records. Upon going live at midnight EST yesterday, it claimed the #1 spot on iTunes Overall Top Albums Chart and #1 on the Top Hip-Hop/Rap Albums Chart where it has remained since.

Its powerhouse tracklisting represents the artist at the very height of his powers, tapping into interplanetary infectiousness on each song. Check it out below!

The multiplatinum Missouri City, Texas-born and Los Angeles-based 21st century iconoclast and trendsetter preceded the release with a sensory onslaught of activations across the country and online. He made the decision to adorn iconic locales with a gold inflatable replica of his head—notably found on the cover artwork shot by renowned photographer David LaChapelle as the carnival-style entrance to ASTROWORLD. Travis “Heads” popped up at Screwed Up Records in his hometown of Houston, Minute Maid Park where The Astro’s play and just a stone’s throw from the site of the original Six Flags Astroworld park he frequented as a child, the BAPE Store in New York City, Times Square, Magic City in Atlanta, and Amoeba Records in Los Angeles.

Find the (Day) and (Night) variations of the cover enclosed as well as three striking new press images.

Online, he shared a cinematic trailer for ASTROWORLD earlier this week, and it generated 4 million views in less than two days. The track “Stargazing” offers a sci-fi trap soundtrack as our hero braves a lonely and snowy planet to deliver these game-changing and groundbreaking transmissions to the masses…

Additionally, he launched exclusive merch in celebration of the record that sold out in less than 30 minutes on Wednesday. Fans may bundle new merch—unveiled daily—with purchase of the album. Check out the bundle options HERE—get yours fast as they WILL sell out.

Following show-stopping and historic live sets at Lollapalooza, Rolling Loud, and beyond this year, he takes over HARD Festival this weekend with what promises to be nothing short of an epic live set. Check it out on Sunday, August 5 via livestream HERE.

There’s nothing in this galaxy like ASTROWORLD. You may never want to leave…

It’s like the entire Earth shifted on its axis when Travis Scott first landed. Not only did the Missouri City, Texas-born and Los Angeles-based artist, producer, songwriter, designer, style icon, and Catcus Jack Records founder forever change hip-hop, but he indelibly and irrevocably impacted the culture. His second platinum opus Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight crashed the Billboard Top 200 and Top Hip-Hop/Rap Albums Chart at #1 in 2016. “Goosebumps” [feat. Kendrick Lamar] earned RIAA triple-platinum status, the Young Thug collaboration “Pick Up The Phone” [feat. Quavo] went double-platinum, “Beibs in the Trap” [feat. Nav] soared to platinum, and “Through the Late Night” [feat. Kid Cudi] became gold. Penning and featuring on various cuts for Kanye Yest’s Cruel Summer and Yeezus, Travis first left his mark with 2014’s seminal Owl Pharaoh and Days Before Rodeo mixtapes. He instigated a movement online—a precursor to the “Soundcloud Rap” phenomenon. Powered by the triple-platinum“Antidote” and gold “3500” [feat. Future & 2 Chainz], the 2015 Rodeo garnered a platinum plaque and stormed the Top 200 at #3, while notching his first #1 on the Top Hip-Hop/Rap Albums Chart. Everything set the stage for Astroworld. He preceded it with the platinum “Butterfly Effect” and promises of “the best music of my career.”

About THE FRAY:
The Fray – Isaac Slade (vocals, piano), Joe King (guitar, vocals), Ben Wysocki (drums), and David Welsh (guitar) – were signed to Epic Records in 2004, after their first two indie released EPs had gathered strong radio airplay, and won them a widespread organic grassroots following around their native Denver. The Fray rose to prominence when their debut single “Over My Head (Cable Car)” became a Top 10 hit in 2005. The next year, “How to Save a Life” was heavily used in a pro­mo­tional campaign for ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy and both singles were subsequently certi­fied 5x-platinum by the RIAA. The Fray’s debut album, How to Save a Life was named the best-selling digital album to date. Live at the Electric Factory: Bootleg No. 1 (2006), recorded at the famed Philadelphia venue, bolstered the Fray’s rep, followed in 2007 by the EP, Acoustic In Nashville – Bootleg No. 2. Their self-titled RIAA platinum second album arrived in 2009, feat­uring the back-to-back hits “You Found Me” (4x-platinum) and “Never Say Never” (platinum). Scars & Stories (released 2012), produced by Brendan O’Brien, was inspired by the Fray’s trips to Rwanda and Germany, and included their RIAA gold single “Heartbeat.” Their most recent studio album, 2014’s Helios, was produced by Stuart Price (the Killers, Madonna, Keane) and Ryan Tedder (Adele, One Republic). It carved out new directions for the Fray, and included their RIAA gold Top 10 hit, “Love Don’t Die,” which they performed on NBC’s Today Show and Tonight Show. The Fray have sold over 4 million albums and over 20 million singles worldwide.
