MONSTA X RELEASE NEW ALBUM ALL ABOUT LUV TODAY

(February 14, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – Unveiling one of the most-anticipated musical events of 2020, history-making K-pop super group and worldwide phenomenon Monsta X unleash their anxiously  awaited new album, ALL ABOUT LUV, today.

Get it HERE via Epic Records.

Once again making history, ALL ABOUT LUVmarks the first all English-language album released by a K-pop group ever. It also immediately connected with enthusiastic fans everywhere. The single “WHO DO U LOVE?” [feat. French Montana] clocked 47 million streams and 31 million views thus far followed by“SOMEONE’S SOMEONE” [11 million streams and 19 million views], “MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT” [7 million streams and 5 million views], and “LOVE U” [7 million streams]. 

ALL ABOUT LUV merges sounds, styles, and cultures on one pop epic. Spanning emotional highs and lows, the album details heartbreak in “HAPPY WITHOUT ME”before getting cheeky on the catchy “GOT MY NUMBER. Speaking to the group’s dynamics, “BESIDE U” [feat. Pitbull] remains a standout with global implications, bridging boundaries as it unites “Mr. Worldwide” and the Korean force of nature.

In order to celebrate the record’s arrival, the group launch a series of sold out events and immersive activations. Today, they take over the Sunset Strip. They will host an All About Luv pop-up at the iconic Tower Records on Sunset Boulevard (12pm-8pm) and personally appear for a meet-and-greet (4pm-5pm). The pop-up includes merch, CDs, and more. Then, they’ll head up the street to the world-famous Roxy in Hollywood for an album release event featuring a live performance and Q&A session. 

Tomorrow, they host a sold-out in-store signing at Barnes & Noble at The Grove, which also promises to incite pandemonium. They bring this excitement to the East Coast next week with an album playback, Q&A, and live performance at Chelsea Music Hall in New York on February 20.

Entertaining fans everywhere, they take the stage at the TODAY Show on February 20. The next day February 21, they’ll perform on The Kelly Clarkson Show.

Opening today and running through February 28, Monsta X also launch a Sony Square activation. This immersive fan experience encourages highly shareable Instagram moments as well as offers exclusive merch and more.

It’s ALL ABOUT LUV and Monsta X in 2020.

Monsta X consistently made history in the U.S. throughout this past year. With “WHO DO U LOVE?”, they became “only the second K-Pop group ever to enter the Top 40 Airplay Chart.” By way of an historic performance at Life Is Beautiful in Las Vegas, they emerged as “the first male K-Pop group to perform at a major music festival in the United States, and stood out as the first K-pop group in history to hit the stage at iHeartRadio Music Festival the same day. Additionally, they made their United States television debut on Good Morning America, followed by electric performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Ellen DeGeneres Show and became the “first K-pop group to perform on the Teen Choice Awards.” Not to mention, Monsta X charted on the Billboard Social 50 for over a year, remaining one of the biggest social media bands in the world. They also sold out their U.S. arena tour—which culminated at fever pitch during a triumphant headliner at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Co-written by Beer and produced by frequent collaborator Leroy Clampitt (who worked with Madison on her debut EP, As She Pleases) the minimalist backdrop highlights the passion, poise, and power of Madison’s vocals. In the accompanying music video, she sings alone on the ground before rain pours down and she finds herself submerged. Its intense bold beauty mirrors the spirit of the song.  “I wanted to give my fans more of a taste of what’s to come from my upcoming album Life Support, and with “Selfish” being my most personal and intimate song yet it felt like Valentine’s Day was the perfect time to share it.” says Madison.

Her debut EP As She Pleases boasts over 700 million streams globally 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. She’s attracted the endorsement of Time, Complex, NME, The Guardian andBillboard who named her among its coveted “21 Under 21” list, and has a social following that reaches an audience of over 14.3 million on Instagram and 2.5 million on Twitter. 2020 sees Madison begin her relationship with Sony where she, along with First Access Entertainment who have A&R’ed her debut LP, licensed the album and will release it via Epic Records. This unique deal has left Madison where she thrives – commanding complete creative control through writing her own songs, producing and creating her own visuals.

MEGHAN TRAINOR’S HIGHLY ANTICIPATED THIRD ALBUM TREAT MYSELF OUT NOW

(January 31, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – The time has come.

GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter, and producer Meghan Trainor drops her third album, Treat Myself [Epic Records], today, and Dr. Phil wants everyone to TREAT THEMSELVES and listen to it!!!

Building on their friendship and Meghan’s lifelong obsession with him, she finally “is in love with herself” says Dr. Phil

He promises, “The lyrics are about being a strong person filled with positivity…just like I taught her on the TV.”

Before encouraging everyone to “Treat yourself to Treat Myself,” Meghan actually gets Dr. Phil to say the words “funky” and “bopping” to his own astonishment—and that of anyone who’s ever watched him.

What better way to introduce Treat Myself

Get the album HERE

Meghan preceded the record’s arrival with a string of fan favorites. The boisterous and bold platinum single “No Excuses” clocked over 106 million Spotify streams to date, and at the end of 2019 she performed the soaring album opener “Wave” [feat. Mike Sabath] on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The Voice. Earlier this month, she unveiled “Blink” to critical acclaim with Rolling Stonedubbing it, “a motivational anthem.” Meanwhile, Idolator predicted Treat Myself as “shaping up to be well worth the years-long wait. I feel comfortable saying that based on the quality of bops like ‘Blink’.”

The brand new single “Nice To Meet Ya” [feat. Nicki Minaj] showcases another side of the superstar. Over throwback nineties R&B production, she slides from slick verses towards a whispered refrain before the iconic Queen, Nicki Minaj, goes wild on the beat with fierce and fiery rhymes.  Watch the official video HERE, inspired by the 80’s Cult Classic Movie, Working Girl.  Elsewhere on the album, she welcomes the freshly reunited Pussycat Dolls to guest on the cheeky “Genetics,” which playfully pokes fun at perceived plastic perfection. “Babygirl” represents an emotional high point as Meghan locks into a heavenly harmony with a choir on a resounding reminder to “Love Yourself” before an eighties-style dance drop. Meanwhile, she joins forces with rising pop star AJ Mitchell on the sassy and spunky “After You.” Everything culminates on the finale “Have You Now.” Its skittering synths and danceable claps build towards a tender plea, “Don’t let me down, stay with me for life.”

Check out the full tracklisting below.

Speaking to her worldwide influence, Meghan recently joined The Voice UK as a judge for this season, adding to a growing list of film and television credits and enchanting audiences yet again.

This Spring, she hits the road alongside Maroon 5 in support of the album and her biggest stage production yet. View dates HERE.

MADISON BEER RELEASES LEAD SINGLE FROM DEBUT ALBUM, “GOOD IN GOODBYE”   “GOOD IN GOODBYE” VIDEO YOUTUBE PREMIERE WITH EXCLUSIVE FAN CHAT   DEBUT ALBUM SET FOR RELEASE THIS YEAR

(January 31, 2020 – New York, NY) – Today, singer-songwriter Madison Beer unveils “Good In Goodbye,” the highly anticipated debut single off her forthcoming full-length album, on license from First Access Entertainment to be released on Epic Records later this year. The track, co-written and co-produced by Beer, hits streaming services today, with the accompanying visual premiering on YouTube Music/VEVO. Check out the single HERE.

In the captivating video, Beer confronts her toughest adversary—herself—in an immersive video game-style landscape armed with colorful firepower, ninja stars, and a whole lot of attitude. Beer, an embodiment of the “Girl Boss” generation, directed the video herself. It’s the ultimate breakup anthem for the ASMR age. You can watch the video HERE.

Of the track and forthcoming album, Beer says: “It feels so good to be releasing the first single from my debut album! Touching on a theme that resonates throughout the album, ‘Good In Goodbye,’ is predominately a break up song. It’s about how cutting ties with a toxic person, no matter how tough it can feel at the time, is sometimes the only way forward and you should always find the ‘good’ in ‘goodbye.’ It also touches on the duality of condemnation and self-reflection you often go through at the end of a relationship – a concept which is brought to life in the video where I delve deep into my inner demons, playing myself and my evil twin.”

Prior to signing with Epic Records late last year, Madison achieved unprecedented success as an independent artist with her partner First Access Entertainment. Her debut EP As She Pleases boasts over 700 million streams globally 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 iTunesin 18 countries and in the Top 10 in 42 countries worldwide.

J HUS RELEASES HIS HIGHLY ANTICIPATED SOPHOMORE ALBUM BIG CONSPIRACY

“…J Hus is arguably the UK’s premier rapper. His style, perfected with producer JAE5, blends Afropop, Dancehall, and Grime, and has become one of the definitive sounds of the UK.” – Pitchfork

LONDON, UK – JANARUY 24, 2020 – Today, J Hus—the darling of UK Rap and the Afro-fusion pioneer—has finally gifted fans with his highly anticipated sophomore album, Big Conspiracy, out now. With features from Burna Boy and KoffeeBig Conspiracy is executive produced by JAE5, reuniting the electric duo once again to create magic. The combination ofJAE5’s classic production style along with J Hus’ trademark rap flair and unmatched lyricism create what is set to undoubtedly be one of the most revered albums of the year.

Get it at all digital partners HERE!


In usual J Hus fashion, Big Conspiracy boasts an exuberant blend of Dancehall, Afrobeat, Rap, R&B and even Drill. It is an emotional rollercoaster ride, exploring the inner thoughts and feelings of the East Londoner. The record establishes him as a cross-territory leader: A king of the underdogs, who, across fourteen songs, dispenses with a reflective, lyrically sharp mission brief on himself, his state of mind and his navigational map for prevailing in a game of rigged odds.

The album brings together some of the most significant names in global music with masterful, career-best production from close collaborators JAE5, Levi Lennox, and iO, plus with the addition of TobiShyBoy, Nana Rogues, Skribz Riley and more.


The first two singles from the album, “Must Be” (his first Top 5 U.K. hit) and street track “No Denying” have both quickly become fan favorites and served as tasters for what was to follow. ‘Big Conspiracy picks up where 2017’s Common Sense (the Mercury, BRIT, and BET Award nominated debut album) left off. The classic, cheeky and playful persona of the Hussla returns fusing a plethora of African tones and Jamaican patterns across the album. Vibrant tracks such as “Cucumber” and the Burna Boy-assisted, Jae5, Nana Rogues and Skribz Riley-produced track “Play Play” are heat wave anthems set to take over every single BBQ and party this summer, with Hus reminiscing on old crushes and current link-ups and slick-talking like only he can.

With regard to guest features, joining Burna Boy, Jamaica’s current queen Koffee holds the verses of “Repeat” aloft.  Newcomer Iceé tgm leads the album, providing the chorus and backing vocals on the album’s first two tracks.

“Reckless” is arguably the album’s most anticipated moment – having been teased to fans on socials for just over a year now. On the track, Hus confidently takes on the haters and showcases his supreme lyrical ability. Notably, on Big Conspiracywe see a more aware and conscious J Hus. After a well-documented fall from grace that included a stint in prison in early 2019, Hus studied up and grew up even more. As he elaborated to Wonderland in their 2019 cover story, “you’re gonna hear a more grown up Hus” on Big Conspiracy. “You’re gonna hear music with more meaning.”

The track “Love Peace & Prosperity” hints at Hus’ current world view. Closing track “Deeper Than Rap”, meanwhile, is an analysis of his life up to this point. A lyrical treatise on what he stands for, what he represents, it’s Hus at his most candid and politically poignant. It is to this album what “Spirit” was to the last and the end credits to the thirteen songs that have come before.

PRAISE FOR 2017’S COMMON SENSE

“The most promising musical exchanges of the last couple of years have been among Africa, Europe and North America, and no album made that clearer than [Common Sense].” – The New York Times, Best albums of 2017

“Every few years, the exuberance of an artist just barely arriving at their adult years brightens the rap realm….The 21-year-old artist did us all a favor by making an album that joined much of the most exciting music coming out of the African diaspora—dancehall, afrobeats, hip-hop, and grime—in a way so fluid that it feels like he needs a new genre exclusively credited to him.” – Vice/Noisey, Best albums of 2017

“As the lead single of his Mercury Prize-nominated debut album Common Sense, [“Did You See”] soundtracked his biggest moment yet, and despite its understated energy, will forever sound triumphant.” – The FADER, 101 Best songs of 2017

“…so consistently excellent that it’s hard to pick a best song.“ – Pigeons and PlanesBest albums of 2017

“The album showed us a more thoughtful side to the rapper and took him, without having to compromise, into the mainstream arena. ” – ComplexBest albums of 2017

“…the year’s best British debut.” – HighsnobietyBest albums of 2017

SET TO SUPPORT EDEN ON NO FUTURE NORTH AMERICANTOUR IN APRIL

RENCE RELEASES NEW SINGLE & MUSIC VIDEO “hate u btw” TODAY

What the press is saying about Rence…

“The song smoothly marries multiple styles, from slick, bass-driven funk to synth-pop…it all pays off, big time.” – PAPER (on “Expensive” ft. Noah Cyrus)

“Rence is one of the breakout stars of 2019” – IDOLATOR

“Rence experiments with his sound on FALL 2019. He considers himself genre-less, hopping between pop, electro, hip-hop, and indie across all six tracks. It’s a bold decision for a new artist, but one that pays off, as it allows Rence to be his most true self. ” – NYLON

“One of the best new artists for December 2019” – Pigeons & Planes

(January 24, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – Putting up nearly 15 million streams in the past year alone and attracting glowing critical endorsements, buzzing genre disruptor Rence shares a brand new single and music video entitled “hate u btw” today.

Get it HERE via Epic Records.

On the track, he picks up a guitar and plucks out a prodding riff buoyed by glitchy beats and keys. He quietly strums out chords before crooning the unshakable and undeniable chant, “She said I hate you by the way…with a smile on her face.

The self-directed and edited music video reflects the sardonically slick sentiment of this breakup send-off. Accompanied by a keyboardist under a gray sky, Rence plays a purple Telecaster on a seaside dock. The clip shifts to him performing on top of a boathouse as frenetic editing moves with the bounce.

Watch it HERE.

Rence continues to receive praise from top tastemakers as well. Pigeons & Planes named him among the “Best New Artists of the Month (December)” and wrote, Rence’s music isn’t easy to classify, but it lives somewhere in the pop world, at least in terms of accessibility. Additionally, The FADER touted the music video for the new version of “I Know” [feat. RIZ LA VIE].

Next up, the rising talent hits the road on EDEN’s No Future North American Tour as a special guest alongside keshi. It kicks off April 23 at House of Blues in Dallas, TX, rolls through major markets throughout the South, Midwest, and East Coast, and wraps up at Royal Oak Music Theatre in Royal Oak, MI on May 20. Check out the final itinerary below.

Get ready for a lot more from Rence very soon! 

ABOUT RENCE

Right out of the gate, Rence’s 2019 single “Expensive” [feat. Noah Cyrus] made waves and turned heads. The song has over 3.5 million global streams, while the music video has amassed over 675K YouTube/VEVO views. Of the latter, Billboard wrote, “Though the beat is quite dynamic, with synths and a toe-tapping bass line, the clip takes a darker turn, following closely with the lyrical meaning.” He also recently spoke at length on this current chapter and more to come with Substream Magazine in addition to sitting down with ONSThe Knockturnal, and ECHO around his sold out live debut at Baby’s Alright in New York. 

Sharing real life snapshots in song, Rence magnifies his personal perspective through a genre-less palette, bordering pop, alternative, electro, indie and hip-hop all at once, yet never dipping into one for too long. The Los Angeles-based artist, who was born in D.C., spent his formative teen years in Seattle and then moved to New York to attend NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, first allowed listeners to hear this irresistible inner monologue on his breakthrough independent project, Pink. The project’s lead single “Baby Blue” racked up over 4 million Spotify streams as his total tally approached 8 million. Along the way, peers such as Chelsea Cutler and FLETCHER lent support as critical acclaim came from Hilly DillyLyrical LemonadeOnes To WatchElevator Magazine, i-D, Paper  and more. Tastemaker Zane Lowe handpicked “Ways To Go” as his “World Record” on Apple Music’s Beats 1.

Now, he transforms pop on his own terms.

“NO RAP KAP” MUSIC VIDEO PREMIERED EARLIER TODAY VIA THE FADER

KODIE SHANE RELEASES NEW SINGLE “NO RAP KAP” FEATURING TRIPPIE REDD

Praise for Kodie Shane:

“… undeniably sultry.” – The New York Times

“…swaggering displays of bravado and style.” – The New Yorker

“…convention-shattering…” – Paper Magazine

“Kodie is one of Atlanta’s finest out right now.” – Complex

“Young HeartThrob is the purest and most effective distillation yet of Shane’s hybrid aesthetic.” – Pitchfork

(January 17, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – Jump starting the decade with a new anthem, mold-breaking artist Kodie Shane kicks off 2020 with her new single and music video, “No Rap Kap” [featuring Trippie Redd]. 

Get it HERE via Epic Records

“Over the years, Trippie and I have always had a crazy creative space,” Kodie tells The FADER. “It’s ever growing and super organic with no real destination in mind… I can truly say we trust one another in the studio and that’s so rare. In my opinion, this is a great representation of both of our styles collided. We’ve created a lot of shit, but this joint walks us into another realm.”

Skittering beats and woozy bass ebb and flow between Kodie’s nimbly rapped verses as she locks into a hypnotic harmony on the hook alongside multiplatinum superstar Trippie Redd. Together, they harness the raw and real chemistry originally unlocked on their 2018 fan-favorite collaboration “Love & Drugz II, which has clocked over 20 million total streams to date. Meanwhile, premiered earlier today via The FADER, the music video for No Rap Kap places them in a predicament of cinematic proportions. Captured, detained, and interrogated by the “Kap Task Force,” they plead their respective cases before turning up in an undisclosed location.

For the whole story, watch the Azzie Scott-directed [Wiz Khalifa, Queen Naija] music video HERE.

Next up, Kodie will join Trippie Redd on his anxiously awaited North American tour, alongside Blocboy JB. With many cities already sold out, the tour is set to launch on January 22 in Seattle, WA at Showbox Sodo. It rolls through major markets coast-to-coast before wrapping up March 15 at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, CA. Check out the full itinerary below and visitwww.kodieshane.com to purchase tickets. 

“No Rap Kap” follows on the heels of 2019’s “2 Many” (stream it HERE). Receiving widespread acclaim, Billboard touted it among “25 Songs From LGBTQ Artists You May Have Missed In 2019. The outlet wrote, Mustering up all of the bravado usually reserved for straight male rappers, the star takes the concept of a flex and reconfigures it through a queer lens on 2 Many, as she spits bars about not being tied down by any one woman.” Meanwhile, HotNewHipHop proclaimed, “Kodie Shane is still a Rockstar on ‘2 Many’.”

Get ready for a whole lot more from Kodie Shane in 2020 with a series of projects, coming soon.

ABOUT KODIE SHANE:

Atlanta’s own Kodie Shane asserted herself as one of the game’s most necessary new voices with the release of full-length debut, 2018’s Young HeartThrob (stream it HERE). Not only has Kodie since amassed 64 million streams and views, but she has also achieved widespread acclaim from HypebeastPitchforkThe FADERHighsnobietyPaper MagazineComplexVogue, ELLE and more, found her on the cover of publications like Teen Vogue and Galore, while Red Bull produced a documentary about Kodie’s rise (watch it HERE). Extending the artist’s influence, Sprite tapped her as a face of its “Thirst For Yours campaign (watch the commercial HERE).Young HeartThrob only accelerated her ascent to the top where she will undoubtedly remain throughout 2020 and beyond. Her live show is not to be missed: known for her energetic performance style and Rockstar-level attitude, she wrapped up her first-ever headlining World Tour earlier this year, which was spotlighted by the likes of The New York TimesThe New Yorker and beyond. She has previously shared the stage with the likes of Billie Eilish, Juice WRLD, Lil Yachty, Jhene Aiko and more, having most recently wrapped up a North American tour alongside SAINt JHN.  Now, with more new music on and touring on the horizon, 2020 is Kodie’s for the taking.

ALBUM WAS RECORDED IN LOS ANGELES WITH

ANDREW WATT, DUFF MCKAGAN AND CHAD SMITH

SPECIAL GUESTS INCLUDE ELTON JOHN, POST MALONE, SLASH AND TOM MORELLO

ORDINARY MAN AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER

FRIDAY, JANUARY 10, 2020

“There’s a line in ‘Ordinary Man’ where I sing, ‘I don’t want to die an ordinary man,’ which I don’t think I will,” OZZY says with a laugh.

(January 10, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter OZZY OSBOURNE has set Friday, February 21 as the release date for his new ORDINARY MAN album.  Marking his first new solo music in almost 10 years, the album has been preceded by the release of two singles, the #1 rock track Under The Graveyard,” which was followed by “Straight To Hell” featuring Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash (watch the video here). The album’s title track will be available instantly with any pre-order of the album.  Pre-order the album here.

ORDINARY MAN will be available as a standard CD, deluxe CD, black vinyl, deluxe gatefold swirl color vinyl, picture disc and digital album.  In addition, all physical copies of the album will include a unique code that will allow the purchaser to enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win one of over 300 Ozzy prizes (including an official OZZY laminate to get into any show on the 2020 “NO MORE TOURS 2,” meet and greets with OZZY, a gift certificate to the OZZY global store and much more!).  All details on the sweepstakes can be found at www.ozzy.com.

“It was a lot of fun to do though it’s a lot different from my other albums,” OZZY says of the album.  “We recorded it quickly, which I haven’t done since the first Black Sabbath album.  This made it a different process, which I actually enjoyed.”

Recorded in Los Angeles, the album features producer Andrew Watt on guitars, Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses) on bass and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) on drums.  Beyond the core band, ORDINARY MAN, features a who’s-who of OZZY friends and collaborators including Elton John, Post Malone, and Tom Morello.

“It all just came together,” OZZY explains of the guest stars.  “Slash is a dear friend of mine, as is Elton.  When I was writing ‘Ordinary Man,’ it reminded me of an old Elton song and I said to Sharon, ‘I wonder if he would sing on it?’  We asked and lo and behold, he agreed and sings and play piano on the song.”

KILLY RELEASES NEW SINGLE AND MUSIC VIDEO: “VENDETTA”

[NEW YORK, NY – DECEMBER 20, 2019] Inspiring devotion in his growing legion of fans, KILLY’s auto-tuned melodies aim directly for the pleasure centers of a rap fan’s brain. Coming through covered in diamonds and with some harsh words for his enemies, the Toronto native shares “Vendetta,” a brand new music video premiered by Highsnobiety. Produced by star boy, OUTTATOWN, and Jasper Harris, “Vendetta” finds KILLY weaving between swinging synth chimes and gently dancing hi-hats, keeping his friends close, but his enemies closer: “I gotta keep that shit real close cause’ I’m close with all my enemies/They try to take my soul and come round just to drain my energy/Walk in the store could buy everything/Still can’t put a price on loyalty.”

Get “Vendetta” HERE via Epic Records. Watch the official music video HERE.


“I was in a session with star boy and OUTTATOWN and went 30–we the new wave,” says KILLY to Highsnobiety. “Next time I went to the studio I brought a camera man with me and shot the music video in an hour.”                       .

In the video, KILLY shows off his freshest outfits, ranging from black to spotless white, adorning his visage with diamond-encrusted sunglasses. Accompanied only by his driver and an excitable Dalmatian, the artist of Bajan-Filipino descent hops from the studio to his Wraith, daring the opps to match his shine.  “Vendetta” is KILLY’s first new single since November’s “Triple Helix” (Prod. by OogieMane & 16yrold), a futuristic flexers’ anthem with over 2.5 million streams on Spotify.

After a year in which he earned multiple JUNO Awards nominations, shared his Light Path 8 project, signed to Epic Records, toured with NAV in North America, headlined his own European tour, and performed at Lollapalooza and Rolling Loud New York, “Vendetta” and “Triple Helix” heralds an even brighter future for the 22-year-old rapper. Stay tuned for much more from KILLY before 2019 comes to a close.


About KILLY:

After bursting onto the scene with his disruptive single “Killamonjaro” in 2017, the Toronto-born artist of Bajan-Filipino descent KILLY has quickly become one of music’s most exciting artists to watch. On the heels of the hit, his debut project Surrender Your Soul dropped in 2018 via his Secret Sound Club label, giving KILLY’s growing fanbase a taste of his unique knack for melody, fully-immersive creative vision, and personal lyrics that speak to the highs and lows of his journey. His reach has continued to grow steadily: by the end of 2018, he’d attained almost 200 million listens on Spotify alone, and brought his music to audiences across the globe on his “Surrender Your Soul” World Tour. Capping off a break-out year, KILLY released a five-track EP entitled KILLSTREAK, received three 2019 JUNO Award nominations and garnered two Platinum-certified singles. As of today, the budding superstar has accumulated more than 500 million streams across all platforms globally and is Toronto’s biggest rap export since Drake. With his recent signing to Epic Records, KILLY is set to blaze thru 2020, focused on realizing his vision, extending his global reach, and becoming an icon for the new era.

“For ‘Under the Graveyard’ Jonas (Akerlund) developed the story into a ‘mini movie,’” says OZZY OSBOURNE.  “But, to be quite honest, it’s hard for me to watch because it takes me back to some of the darkest times in my life. Thankfully Sharon was there to pick me up and believe in me.  It was the first time she was there to fully support me and build me back up, but it certainly wasn’t the last.”

“Under The Graveyard” recently captured the #1 position on the Rock Radio Chart and has eclipsed 5.4 million streamsworldwide.  It marks the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter’s third #1 on this chart and his first in 10 years;” “Under The Graveyard” is his first new solo music in as many years. It’s the first track from OZZY’sforthcoming album, ORDINARY MAN, due out on Epic Records in early 2020

NEW SINGLE “OUT OF YOUR MIND” FEATURING CHRIS BROWN & SWAE LEE 

(December 6, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – Once again raising the bar with a bold blockbuster body of work, French Montana unveils his anxiously awaited double-side new album, MONTANA [Epic Records], today.

Get it HERE.

Giving fans more as always, it’s available in various bundle configurations with exclusive merch, including Fashion Nova shirts, hoodies, and sweatpants as well as Ethika boxers.

Visit his official site HERE.

Upon going live, it immediately claimed a spot in the Top5 of the Top Hip-Hop/Rap Albums Chart.

Heralding its arrival, he just shared the cinematic music video for “What It Look Like.” Directed by Kid Art [Pusha T, Yo Gotti], the gritty clip places French in the middle of an underground New York City hideout alongside bosses of all stripes. As a Scorpion runs across the frame only to be trapped by a glass, shadowy deals go down before the MC dominates an ominous beat with deft rhymes and a chantable hook, “Hit the club up, what it look like? Hit your block up, what it look like? Saw a hundred million cash, what it look like?…They saw me from the bottom, what it look like?”

It looks like timeless East Coast hip-hop with a 21st century trap edge…

Additionally, the powerhouse record “Out Of Your Mind” [feat. Chris Brown & Swae Lee] will be the next single to take over radio. Boasting unshakable and undeniable cameos from Breezy and SwaeFrench anchors the song with another display of lyrical fireworks.

Already, tracks from MONTANAhave cumulatively tallied nearly 1.1 Billion streams pre-release. Plus, total video views for “Montana” album trailer, “Suicide Doors” [feat. Gunna], “Writing on the Wall” [feat. Post MaloneCardi B, & RVSSIAN], “No Stylist” [feat. Drake], “Wiggle It” [feat. City Girls], “Slide” [feat. Lil TJay & BLUEFACE], “No Shopping” [feat. Drake], and “Lockjaw” [feat. Kodak Black] have impressively exceeded 460 million and counting.

Meanwhile, last month’s “Twisted” [feat. Juicy JLogic, & A$AP Rocky] received widespread acclaim. Complex touted it as a “club anthem,” and Billboard proclaimed it as “another haymaker of a single.” HYPEBEAST chronicled how French is “continuing to crank out star-studded collaborative singles.” The latter only increased anticipation for MONTANA. Executive produced by Harry Fraud, this stands out as his most ambitious effort.

Check out the full tracklisting for Side A and Side B below.

The GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum artist, rapper, producer, influencer, and philanthropist also finds himself healthy once again following an urgent hospitalization last week. On Twitter, he promised, “The music is keepin my spirit alive, and it does with the album landing now.

He also took to Instagram to say, “Thank you Everyone for all of the prayers, love and support. I’m finally out of ICU and am getting better one day at a time !!!#Montana.

Now, he properly welcomes everyone to MONTANA!

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 septuple-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.

SOLIDIFIES SUCCESSFUL LONG-TERM PARTNERSHIP WITH LA REID AND MARIAH

NEW STUDIO ALBUM FROM MARIAH EXPECTED LATER THIS YEAR

(April 10, 2017 – Los Angeles, CA) – Multi-platinum global superstar Mariah Carey, the best-selling female artist of all time with 18 Hot 100 #1 hits, inks an exclusive joint partnership of Butterfly MC Records and Epic Records, a division of Sony Music Enter­tainment, it was announced today by LA Reid, Chair­man and CEO, Epic Records. Terms of the agree­ment call for additional repertoire by the artist, beginning with a new studio album expected later this year.

“To continue working with Mariah Carey at Epic has been another rewarding chapter of my career,” said Mr. Reid. “Mariah’s incomparable talents as a singer, with her vocal range that is nothing short of legendary, are matched by her brilliance as a songwriter, producer, and performer par excellence. Mariah’s chart records have established her enduring place in music history, a position that is cherished and supported by her loyal fans worldwide. I look forward to building upon all of Mariah’s success for years to come.”

“I am putting my heart and soul into making more new music,” said Mariah. “I am so thrilled for this next chapter and to continue working with, and for, everyone that I love.”

Today’s announcement effectively extends the successful long-term association between Epic and Mariah, who was personally signed to the label by LA Reid in 2015. Mariah enjoyed a career-high 2016 that included a sold-out international tour (The Sweet Sweet Fantasy Tour), a hit docu-series (Mariah’s World on E!), a history-making partnership with MAC Cosmetics, a critically-acclaimed Vegas residency (Mariah Carey #1’s at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace), and numerous guest appearances in film and tv. Mariah is set to return to her Las Vegas residency in July and will embark on a North American summer tour with Lionel Richie.

Mariah’s hitmaking career began at Sony Music in with her astounding first five consecutive Hot 100 #1 hits of 1990-91: “Vision of Love,” “Love Takes Time,” “Someday,” “I Don’t Wanna Cry,” and “Emotions.” The quintet kicked off her most recent album, #1 To Infinity (released 2015, on Epic Records / Columbia Records / Sony Legacy), the first career-spanning chrono­logical collection to gather all 18 of her Billboard Hot 100 #1 singles (17 self-penned). That list went on to include “We Belong Together” (#1 for 14 weeks), “Don’t Forget About Us,” and “Touch My Body,” to name a few.
