Jon Bellion’s “Stupid Deep” Video

JON BELLION SHARES OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR “STUPID DEEP”

Single Is From His New Album, Glory Sound Prep

North American Headline Tour Kicks Off June 12

Today, Jon Bellion revealed the official video for his current single, “Stupid Deep.” The New York-based artist partnered with director Daniel Brown (ODESZA, Portugal. The Man) to weave a mythic tale of self-discovery that is set at sea. Bellion did all the visual effects himself. View “Stupid Deep”  HERE.

Bellion will launch an extensive North American amphitheater tour on June 12 at The Met in Philadelphia. The summer headline run, produced by Live Nation, will include a July 12 concert at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre and an August 10 hometown show at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater on Long Island. See below for itinerary. Tickets are available here.

“Stupid Deep” is from Bellion’s new album, Glory Sound Prep (Capitol Records/Visionary Music Group), which includes collaborations with GRAMMY-winning producer Quincy Jones, Roc Marciano, RZA, B.Keyz and Travis Mendes. Billboard said, “Bellion seamlessly intertwines sounds of pop, R&B, hip-hop and rock through his electrifying songs.” AllMusic praised it as “Epic in scope” and noted, “Glory Sound Prep sees Jon Bellion again alternating effervescent dance-pop, melodic reflections, and more fractured, urgent hip-hop. This time, he draws on an even broader sound palette that incorporates synths, strings, horns and more.”

Glory Sound Prep is the follow-up to his RIAA Gold-certified 2016 debut album, The Human Condition, which has sold more than 1.5 million adjusted albums and amassed upwards of 1.7 billion cumulative streams. “All Time Low,” the lead single, was a Top 10 hit at Top 40 radio and is now certified 3x Platinum.

Bellion got his start with a series of mixtapes featuring his original songs all recorded in his parents’ basement. He built a remarkable following by sharing his music directly with listeners, giving away more than 200,000 free downloads of 2014’s The Definition and playing live for fans on two sold-out national tours. Also a sought-after collaborator, Bellion co-wrote and produced “Trumpets” for Jason Derulo and co-wrote the GRAMMY Award winning, 10x-Platinum hit “The Monster” for Eminem and Rihanna. He co-wrote and co-produced Christina Aguilera’s 2018 single, “Fall in Line” featuring Demi Lovato.

The Bullitt Mustang and the Stock Market

The Fascinating Facts About the Bullitt Mustang’s Link to the Stock Market

By Robert Folsom

In October 1968, the action film Bullitt came to theaters. The movie starred Steve McQueen, who defined the idea of “cool” for a generation. Other famous faces in the film included Robert Vaughn, Jacqueline Bisset and Robert Duvall. Yet, there was one other star of the movie: the Ford Mustang GT Fastback. Bullitt helped make the Mustang as cool among muscle cars as Steve McQueen was cool among Hollywood stars.Rob

The ’68 Mustang from Bullitt plays the star to this day. It became the main attraction at the 2018 Detroit auto show, unveiled as the authentic mustang from the movie by the family who had secretly owned the vehicle for 40 years.

The car is so memorably cool and such a unique brand, that Ford Motor Company has brought a commemorative Bullitt Mustang model to market once, twice, and now a third time. Remarkably, all these appearances came at very specific junctures in the stock market.

Bullitt debuted in theaters in October 1968, the very month that the Dow Jones Industrial Average registered an important peak. The stock market index stayed mostly below that price peak during the 1970s and early 1980s. Yet in 1982, the trend turned, and a years-long bull market unfolded all the way into 2000. In 2000, at a major top in the Dow, Ford announced the launch of the 2001 Bullitt Mustang.

What followed was a bear market and the lowest lows of the early 2000s. But the trend turned again, and the market once again registered new all-time highs that carried into 2007. That year, Ford announced the launch of the 2008 Bullitt Mustang.

After that launch came a brutal bear market and the Great Recession. Then the trend turned higher, once more reaching new all-time highs in 2018. And, you guessed it, in 2018 Ford announced the launch of the 2019 Bullitt Mustang. So:

  • The 1968 movie Bullitt and Mustang GT coincided with a major peak and the onset of a bear market,
  • The first commemorative Bullitt Mustang model coincided with the 2000 peak and the onset of a bear market,
  • The second Bullitt Mustang model coincided with the 2007 peak and the onset of a bear market, and
  • Most recently, the third Bullitt Mustang model coincided with … to be determined.

Why the connection? The book Socionomic Studies of Society and Culture makes the case that trends in the auto and stock markets reflect the larger trends in social psychology. Positive social mood makes society feel optimistic: investors send stock prices higher and consumers buy bigger, faster cars with more horsepower. Negative social mood makes society feel pessimistic: investors send stock prices lower and consumers buy smaller, slower cars with less horsepower. Automakers simply supply the demand of the public’s mood.

The Bullitt Mustang is just one example. You may recall the fast, high-performance “muscle cars” and sporty convertibles of the 1960s bull market; the power-challenged Pinto, Gremlin and Vega of the 1970s bear market; the supersized SUVs that filled driveways during the 1990s market mania; the return of the more compact PT Cruiser and Volkswagen Beetle as the market began to roll over thereafter; and the miniature Smart cars that made a splash during the 2008-2009 auto industry crisis that coincided with a bear market. Check out chapter 29 in the book for a full historical survey of mood, markets and car styling.

The auto industry’s recent embrace of speed, size and power suggests that today’s mood trend is maturing. When that trend turns, buckle up. Rocky conditions will be ahead.

Cameron Hughes Wine

Cameron Hughes founded his company with a simple mission: offer great wines at affordable prices to everyone.

There are two challenges customers face when buying wine:

  • High-end wine is expensive. The average price of a Napa Cabernet scoring 90+ points in Wine Spectator magazine is over $150/bottle, and typically passes through distributor and retailer hands before ever reaching the customer.
  • Buying wine is confusing. Most folks stand in the wine aisle, stare at a huge wall of bottles, and eventually settle on a label that’s interesting enough at an acceptable price and hope they aren’t disappointed.

Cameron Hughes Wine aims to make these problems a thing of the past.

As a négociant (wine trader), they don’t own vineyards or a winery – their focus is purely on finding the best wines and negotiating the best price for our customers. Cameron has worked in the wine industry his entire life, and through deep connections built over decades, has access to top wineries and producers all over the world. They look in every cellar and barrel room, and peek behind every door that says “Employees Only.” Sometimes they buy wine still in the barrel, and other times they buy “shiners” (wine already in a bottle with no label). Regardless of how they get it, the mission is simple: buy the best possible wine at the best possible price.

These deals are made discreetly, and typically protected by an agreement to keep the source winery undisclosed to protect their brand. These wines are also only available online, direct to you – this means no distributor and retailer markups. The result? They’re able to offer $100+ Napa Cabernets for a third of the price, or a $60 bottle of Pinot for under $20 (yes, the exact same wine sold under the original winery label).

Each wine acquired is given a Lot number and sold under the Cameron Hughes label, beginning over a decade ago with Lot 1.

Think of them as your personal sommelier – they curate their store to constantly showcase a wide range of some of the world’s best styles and winegrowing regions, and promise that every wine offered is a benchmark expression of the style and winegrowing region reflected on the label, at the best prices on the market.

Anybody can put wine in a bottle, slap a label on it, and sell it online. But Cameron Hughes Wine strictly does high-end wine at the best price, period. The label is a guarantee of quality for every wine offered.

Rodarte’s Kate and Laura Mulleavy

In the March 22nd issue of InStyle, Rodarte’s Kate and Laura Mulleavy speak on the loyal sisterhood they’ve created including Rowan Blanchard, Dakota Fanning and Shailene Woodley with their darkly romantic designs.

“There are very few houses led by women, and I think that’s unfortunate… The few women I see in those positions worked really long and hard to get there, and I don’t see that with our male counterparts. Someone does one cool collection as a young male designer and they are in a house. We can all leave it to our imaginations as to why that is,” says Laura Mulleavy.

“My sister and I have always been able to relate to Kate and Laura in a special way because the four of us understand the power of a sisterly bond… I’ve always been fascinated by the inspirations for Kate and Laura’s collections,” says Dakota Fanning.


“No matter how niche or specific they may be, they are always uniquely present in each piece… I’m not sure I’ve met any two more authentic women in the fashion industry,” says Shailene Woodley.

“It’s romantic and feminine, and there’s an underlying edge to it, something that’s off… We’re always looking at the ideas of traditional beauty and nontraditional beauty and how they can be seen together,” says Laura Mulleavy.

The issue hits newsstands nationwide March 22nd. Photographs by Amy Harrity. See the full online interview here.
