GLOBAL SUPERSTAR MEGHAN TRAINOR UNVEILS NEW EP THE LOVE TRAIN TODAY

Love Train News Slider

FEATURING THE SMASH BOP “ALL THE WAYS” AND HER VERY OWN WEDDING SONG “MARRY ME”

(February 8, 2019 — Los Angeles, CA) — Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and whether you’re planning on smashing bae’s junk to smithereens or making out with a pint of Phish Food, you need some fresh Valentine’s Day bops to get you in the mood for L♡VE. And MEGHAN TRAINOR has got you covered with her new EP, THE LOVE TRAIN [Epic Records.]

You know you want it. And you can freakin’ get it b*tch. On all digital platforms right HERE.

Meghan’s seducing your ears this V-Day, and you know she knows a thing or two about romance. Unless your phone’s been broken for a hot minute, you know that Meghan just got married to the ginger from Spy Kids, and trust when we say, girl is feeling the love. She took a break from her busy schedule to record some fire tracks in Los Angeles alongside frequent collaborators and producers Andrew Wells [5SOS, Fall Out Boy, Jason Mraz], J KASH (Maroon 5, Charlie Puth, Kesha) and Tyler Johnson [Harry Styles, CAM].

We know you want to hear songs about all the hot newlywed sex Meghan and Daryl Sa-BAE-ra are having (did you see what we did there?). Which is why you’ll love the banging’ single “All The Ways.” Billboard was wet for “All The Ways,” calling it “another fun, danceable track to fall in love with.” And would Billboard lie to you, girl?

But perhaps the piece de resistance (that’s French for “Wig Snatch”) is “Marry Me,” a romantic acoustic guitar and ukulele-tinged Awww Fest which delivers all the feels (and then more feels). Meghan wrote the song thirty days after meeting Daryl, and it was so good that she walked down the aisle to it. We know, it’s a little bit #Vomworthy, but also, am I chopping onions right now or are those tears rolling down my face? I’m not crying, you’re crying. 

And as always, our Grammy-Winning, Diamond Single-having QUEEN didn’t just come to play — she came to slay. She’s serving vocals on the passionate, Celine Dion-esque power ballad “After You.” Plus, Meghan’s serving your insatiable thirst for dance-ready bops with the upbeat banger that is “Foolish.” It slaps so hard you’ll be stanning for days.  “As if all the PDA, including foot massages, butterfly kisses and piggy back rides aren’t cringe worthy enough, says her brother and videographer Ryan… I’ve got to film it all!”

Choo choo betch! The Love Train is leaving the station and you better get on board.

Be on the lookout for more surprises very soon as she prepares for a landmark 2019.

Tracklisting:

1.         “All The Ways”

2.         “Marry Me”

3.         “I’m Down”

4.         “After You”

5.         “Foolish”

6.         “Good Mornin’ Featuring Gary Trainor (yes, her dad)”

Grammy-Award winning singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Meghan Trainor emerged with her 2014 breakout single “All About That Bass” and disrupted contemporary music with nostalgic pop beats and powerhouse vocals that delivered a worldwide anthem for female empowerment. Trainor cemented her rising status as one of the most prominent artists in popular music by charting seven multi-platinum singles, releasing two platinum albums, selling out three headline tours, writing multi-platinum hits for top pop and country artists, and receiving countless industry awards and nominations worldwide.  She is one of only five female artists to receive a diamond certification for her hit single “All About That Bass” which shares the RIAA Gold & Platinum Awards top honor with only 15 other singles in history.

“Dior is shaping up to be one of the most exciting voices in music, and with the release of ‘Nobody Knows,’ it’s easy to see why. Dior’s lively spirit is palpable throughout, and his signature smooth and laid-back flow is the icing on this delectable sonic cake.”– ONES TO WATCH
“…the LA-based up-and-comer continues to make impacts with every new song…” – HYPEBEAST “…[a] soul-bearing lyricist with a bright future and an interesting backstory.” – NYLON

[January 14, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA] Today, Los Angeles-based rapper, singer and songwriter Jez Dior shares the official music video for his latest single “Nobody Knows (featuring Jackson Guthy).” Watch the music video HERE. Additionally, the song officially impacts radio today. Stream/purchase the track at all DSPs HERE via Epic Records.

Shot on location in Denver, CO and Salt Lake City, UT during Dior’s Fall 2018 tour, the video was directed byVoyager (Alex Meader andConnor Hair) and premiered earlier this morning via Complex. Dior’s most captivating visual to-date, the video showcases a more personal side to him, which perfectly complements the song’s sentiments. Featuring the story of a budding romance, the video highlights the rush of being fully spellbound by somebody. Interspersed with clips of Dior traveling on a sold-out tour, where he can’t stop thinking about his love interest, the visual showcases the highs and lows of infatuation. The concept of the video takes inspiration from Dior’s real life, representing the struggles he has dealt with in his own relationships while being a touring artist.

“’Nobody Knows’ is a love song, but not just about the glamour of being in love…” Dior tells Complex. “Relationships are hard. No matter how perfect somebody may seem to you, there will always be issues to overcome in any relationship. With the video we tried to portray that & actually shot it across two different states while I was on tour. It was definitely a different experience traveling while shooting a video… We had everything from trying to balance playing shows AND filming, to a drive-by shooting happening on location. It was a tough one, but I think it turned out to be really special.”

“Nobody Knows” is poised to anchor a breakthrough year for the genre-bending artist. Produced by Chris Wallace and Matt Rad (who have both worked with Dior on several past singles, and have credits individually across artists like Keith Urban, One Direction, Lupe Fiasco, Thirty Seconds to Mars, among others), the anthemic track is set to appear on Dior’s upcoming debut album, which is due for release later this year.

2018 saw much growth for the budding star. “Nobody Knows” follows the Summer 2018 release of singles  Cocaine,” Kiss You Good” and “Come and Go (featuring ROME),” which have received millions of streams across platforms since release and received acclaim from the likes of BillboardComplex and more. He spent the Fall on a 21-date North America tour, in support of Azizi Gibson, taking his energetic live show to venues such as Baby’s All Right in New York City and The Roxy in Los Angeles—check out a video recap of Jez on the road, performing in Boston HERE. This past summer, he opened for rapper NONAME in the U.K. and performed at the HYPE Festival in Germany.

Dior’s music has amassed over 45 million global streams overall, and in 2018 his music was streamed for over 1 million hours on Spotify alone. Now with his upcoming album, 2019 is poised to be Jez Dior’s biggest year yet. 

About Jez Dior:

A mold-breaker right out of the gate with a slew of notable mixtapes and EPs, Jez Dior has expertly threaded his hip hop and rock influences into a genre-bending aesthetic all his own. With emotive singles such as “Sober,” and “2 Birds” released to acclaim last year, and independently released projects like Scarlett SageThe Funeral and Youthanasia, he’s cleared the decks for his upcoming album that melds his honest perspective and gritty L.A. roots into new sonic heights.

Growing up in a musical family with punk rock guitar legend Steve Dior as his dad, he’s deftly absorbed his unique background and influences (from the Doors to Nirvana to Eminem and Kanye West), forging a hard-hitting identity with confessional lyrics that pull no punches. Dior’s music has drawn critical acclaim since the start, with Nylon calling him a “soul-bearing lyricist with a bright future and an interesting backstory” and Hypebeast exclaiming that “the LA-based up-and-comer continues to make impacts with every new song…” He has also received attention from the likes of Complex, TIME Magazine, Billboard, XXL, Clash, VIBE, Alternative Press and more. He possesses a riveting live show that has seen him open for the likes of Chance The Rapper, B.o.B. and most recently Noname, while sharing the stage with the likes of Kanye West, J. Cole, G-Eazy (whom he has also collaborated with) at festivals around the world and more. Dior’s catalogue is near 1 million monthly listeners on Spotify, with his 2018 summer single “Cocaine” placed on the coveted New Music Friday playlist. Along with his own music, Jez Dior runs his own imprint, Funeral Crew.

RECEIVES FIRST TWO GRAMMY AWARD® NOMINATIONS

OPENS INTERACTIVE MOTEL 21 ART EXHIBIT IN ATLANTA

TOP 10 DEBUT ON BILLBOARD TOP 200

(Los Angeles, CA – December 21, 2018) Today, GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum-certified rapper, artist, and visionary 21 Savage releases one of the most anticipated hip-hop albums of 2018 and his second full-length, i am > i was [Slaughter Gang/Epic Records]. 

Get it HERE

Upon going live, the record staked out a spot at #1 of iTunes Overall Top Albums Chart and the Top Hip-Hop/Rap Albums Chart. It’s on track to be his second consecutive Top 10 debut on the Billboard Top 200 as well.

i am > i was represents the dawn of a new era for the Atlanta trailblazer. These tracks see him evolve as lyricist and storyteller, while retaining the sheer sonic power and ironclad songcraft that initially cemented him as a juggernaut. It’s raw. It’s real. It’s 21 Savage.

He’s bound to set the game ablaze with this one…

Additionally, he added another dimension to the groundbreaking rollout for i am > i was by opening the interactive art exhibit Motel 21 in his native Atlanta this past Monday. Each of its rooms reflected a theme on the new record. These installations, performances, and activities directly related to the growing legend surrounding 21 Savage, bringing attendees closer than ever.

In addition, Motel 21 was curated by Executive Producer and Chief Creative Strategist Antwanette McLaughlin of The Spice Group and Creative Director/Set Designer Skye Williams of Set by Skye. Giving back, the artist’s Lead By Example Foundation also partnered with Get Schooled and Juma, a nonprofit organization specializing in financial literacy, to host 21 kids on a private tour. At the end, these young guests received a $1K Amazon gift card. Additionally, he unveiled a new collection of high-quality branded apparel and accessories for i am > i was on the 21 Savage official online shop. For more details, visit HERE.

With all eyes on the future, 21 Savage has been things in store for the new year. At the 2019 GRAMMY® Awards February 10, he’s nominated for his first two honors in top categories such as “Record of the Year” and “Best Rap/Sung Performance” for his feature on the definitive smash “rockstar” alongside Post Malone.

Now, i am > i was has arrived, and 21 Savage tenaciously carves out his place amongst rap’s elite.

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

IN MIDST OF “ASTROWORLD: WISH YOU WERE HERE” TOUR 

 

Travis Scott by David LaChapelle

 

(December 3, 2018) – This week marks a monumental point in Travis Scott‘s career as the artistdominates the charts with the #1 single and album in the United States. Travis’ 2x RIAA platinum-certified “SICKO MODE” has claimed the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. This is the first time Travis Scott has topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart after peaking at #2 on the chart earlier this year upon the release of the single’s video. Additionally, Travis’ album ASTROWORLD has claimed the #1 spot again on the Billboard 200 chart this week, marking the album’s third time to achieve #1 in 2018 after occupying the top spot for two weeks upon its release on August 3rd, 2018. The combined feat of having a #1 single and album is fitting considering the banner year that Travis Scott has seen.

The achievements come on the heels of a whirlwind week that saw Scott release the Nabil-directed video for new ASTROWORLD single “YOSEMITE” featuring Gunna, share the official remix for “SICKO MODE” by Skrillex and perform two star-studded, sold out shows at New York City’s Madison Square Garden in the midst of his current “ASTROWORLD: WISH YOU WERE HERE”tour. Raved Rolling Stone of Travis’ New York City performances, “Travis Scott’s ‘Astroworld’ Tour Is the Greatest Show on Earth.” Tickets for remaining shows are available now HERE.

Additionally, ASTROWORLD being #1 this week means the album has retained a spot in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 chart for the 17th week in a row. Upon its release, the album earned the “second highest debut of the year,” and raised the bar by achieving the “biggest ever first-week streaming total for Sony Music” with 349.43 million streams worldwide. This notably marked the highest pure sales week of the year as well.

Acclaimed by Pitchfork, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and more with Travis Scott gracing the cover of GQ, this takeover paved the way for his debut Saturday Night Live performance, second MTV VMA performance, ASTROWORLD Festival in Houston during which the City of Houston proclaimed November 18th to be ASTROWORLD Day and the gargantuan “ASTROWORLD: WISH YOU WERE HERE TOUR” in 2018 and 2019.

BROTHER LEO SHARES NEW SINGLE “PUSH UP” TODAY

brother leo news slider

DEBUT EP COMING SOON 

(November 16, 2018 – Los Angeles, CA)Brother Leo—the alter ego of GRAMMY® Award-nominated Swedish singer, songwriter, and producer Ola Svensson—returns with a new single entitled “Push Up” today. Get it HERE via Epic Records.

 

A bold, brazen, and boisterous anthem, it struts forward on a thick beat and hypnotic horns before his show-stopping delivery takes the spotlight. The chant, “Push up on me, feels like the ultimate invitation to cut loose and party with the buzzing talent.

 

Watch out for the music video’s premiere very soon!

 

The song arrives on the heels of his Fatboy Slim-produced summer single “Strangers On An Island. Within a few months’ time, it clocked 2 million-plus streams and 1.7 million views and counting. Additionally, it inspired the adoration of tastemakers. NME described it as “A gorgeous, laid-back slice of pop magic,” and Wonderland claimed, “You’ll be wanting to direct your attention to the surreal, but mesmerizing visuals for Brother Leo’s Strangers On An Island.

 

Both songs precede the release of his forthcoming debut EP, coming very soon.

 

“Push Up” on Brother Leo now!

 

Named after Svensson’s more confident and free childhood imaginary twin, Brother Leo officially made his worldwide debut in 2018. The dynamic nature of the music aligns with his rather unbelievable story. Long before his emergence as Brother Leo, mom forced her son born Ola to participate in boys’ choir and take piano lessons when all he “really cared about was football.” At only 17, he played professional soccer for former UEFA-cup team Trelleborgs FF. After singing during a school function, friends clamored for him to audition for Pop Idol. Despite his reluctance, he ended up landing a deal in his native Sweden as a result. Unlocking a quirky, clever, and catchy signature style, Ola achieved a string of number ones off the back of his Swedish debut before making his bones as an in-demand songwriter with cuts for gnash, Hailee Steinfeld, Akon, and more under his given name. He assumed the identity of Brother Leo in 2018 and began writing and recording with Mark Ralph [Clean Bandit, Years & Years, Jax Jones], Coffee [Rihanna, Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber], Dan Grech [Lana Del Rey, Liam Gallagher, George Ezra], and more.

She offers a fresh take on Hip Hop and Pop, with tightly-wound rhymes, clever lyrics and ear-worm melodies over buoyant, genre-blurring beats that have become her calling card.

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

Sade widows press release

(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.

From Academy Award®-winning director Steve McQueen (12 YEARS A SLAVE) and co-writer and bestselling author Gillian Flynn (GONE GIRL) comes a blistering, modern-day thriller set against the backdrop of crime, passion and corruption. WIDOWS is the story of four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands’ criminal activities. Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, tensions build when Veronica (Oscar® winner Viola Davis), Linda (Michelle Rodriguez), Alice (Elizabeth Debicki) and Belle (Cynthia Erivo) take their fate into their own hands and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.  WIDOWS also stars Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Robert Duvall, Daniel Kaluuya, Lukas Haas, and Brian Tyree Henry.

MT_TreatMyself_ALB_CVR_10X10_lr

(June 21, 2018 — Los Angeles, CA) — After months of building anticipation and fueling excitement, GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter, and producer Meghan Trainor will release her third full-length album entitled, TREAT MYSELF [Epic Records], on August 31st, 2018. Pre-order goes live today and unlocks instant grat downloads of the scorching songs “LET YOU BE RIGHT,” “CAN’T DANCE,” and “NO EXCUSES” as well as a brand new track “ALL THE WAYS.” Pre-order it HERE!

Earlier this week, Meghan heralded the announcement on social media, detailing “a big surprise” on her Elvis Duran and the Morning Show interview. The next day, she appeared on the program and unveiled the title and release date, taking to social media right after to personally share the artwork.

About TREAT MYSELF, Meghan said, “This album is my best work yet and I’m so proud of what we made. I say “we” because I made this entire album with my family, my friends, and my fiancé. It’s everything I stand for and I’m excited to put an upbeat happy album out for the world.”

Following the release of “NO EXCUSES,” “CAN’T DANCE” and current radio single “LET YOU BE RIGHT,” “ALL THE WAYS” spotlights another side of TREAT MYSELF. It’s another massive and melodic Meghan Trainor anthem and will soundtrack a new marketing campaign for Target, launching June 24. The campaign highlights the retailer’s new fulfillment services, like same-day delivery with Shipt and Drive up, to show guests all the ways they can shop at Target.

A pre-order is live now for the Target Exclusive version of the album, including exclusive remixes of “ALL THE WAYS.” Fans can purchase it at Target.com. This marks the second partnership between Meghan and Target. In 2016, they joined forces to release a Target Exclusive of her second album Thank You.

Right now, Meghan is everywhere! Tonight, you can catch her on a new episode of The Four on Fox 8/7c. Saturday, her seismic Radio Disney Music Awards performance airs on the Disney Channel. Earlier this month, she hit the stage at The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on CBS to perform “LET YOU BE RIGHT,” and opened the Today Show’s summer concert series.

Grammy-Award winning singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Meghan Trainor emerged with her 2014 breakout single “All About That Bass” and disrupted contemporary music with nostalgic pop beats and powerhouse vocals that delivered a worldwide anthem for female empowerment. Trainor cemented her rising status as one of the most prominent artists in popular music by charting seven multi-platinum singles, releasing two platinum albums, selling out three headline tours, writing multi-platinum hits for top pop and country artists, and receiving countless industry awards and nominations worldwide. She is one of only five female artists to receive a diamond certification for her hit single “All About That Bass” which shares the RIAA Gold & Platinum Awards top honor with only 15 other singles in history.
