blackbear releases a new single — “1 SIDED LOVE” — today via all digital retailers. An official video for the song is coming soon.
Listen to “1 SIDED LOVE” HERE
Written and produced by blackbear, Joe Kirkland (Dua Lipa), and Jurek, “1 SIDED LOVE” is the first track to be released from the singer, songwriter, and producer’s upcoming new album, ANONYMOUS, which will be released by Beartrap/Alamo/Interscope Records on April 26.
Blackbear ended 2018 with a sold-out show at the Palladium in Los Angeles. He spent much of last year in the studio working on ANONYMOUS, which follows 2017’s cybersex. Born Matthew Musto, blackbear put out three independent albums (2015’s Deadroses and Help and 2017’s digital druglord) prior to cybersex. In addition, he released a self-titled album with his hip-hop duo mansionz in early 2017. Featured on the certified Gold digital druglord, “do re mi” became blackbear’s first single to crack the Billboard Hot 100; the track has since gone double platinum. A remix of “do re mi” featuring Gucci Mane was released in July 2017, and reached No. 5 at Rhythmic and No. 26 at Top 40 radio. Meanwhile, its video has racked up more than 101 million views on YouTube.
The OZUNA music phenomenon stands with the astonishing 23 nominations at the annual Billboard Latin Music Awards ceremony in 2019. In this way, the Puerto Rican singer breaks records, becoming the most nominated artist during a single gala in all history of this prestigious award.
After taking the prized award as “Artist of the Year” at the 2018 awards gala, Ozuna returns to the same stage, with an extremely solid artistic career, which has led him to become an icon of urban music of this new generation. Notably, the artist recently surpassed the record of Justin Bieber as an artist with more videos that exceed one billion views on YouTube, with a total of 7 videos, in addition to being crowned as the most viewed artist globally in 2018.
On this occasion, the “bold-eyed black man” of Reggaetón takes over the most important categories of the twenty-ninth installment of these awards, thanks to the resounding success of the songs that come from his albums “ODISEA” and “AURA”, both productions released to the market under the independent label DIMELO VI and distributed by Sony Music Latin. Also, with his collaboration in the anthem “Te Boté”, and of course, the single that revolutionized Spotify, all digital platforms and brought together three different cultures in the same melody: “Taki Taki”, a song that knew how to show the world the level and artistic quality of this young Dominican-Puerto Rican root interpreter.
Ozuna will say “present” in the following categories of the night, in which he appears as a singer and composer:
Artist “Latin Rhythm” of the Year, Soloist / Latin Rhythm Artist of the Year, Solo
The Billboard Latin Music Awards gala will be televised from Las Vegas, Nevada on Telemundo, on Thursday, April 25.
British singer/songwriter Jamie N Commons releases the video for his latest single “Won’t Let Go” today. “Won’t Let Go” was written by Commons and produced by Sam De Jong and is available now at all digital retailers. Commons is currently in the midst of a tour opening for Jacob Banks (see remaining tour dates below).
Born in Bristol in the late 80s and following that with a stint in Chicago, Commons returned to England set on a music career studying at Goldsmiths in London, notorious for its host of luminary alumni. Commons released The Baron EP in 2011 followed by his KIDinaKORNER/Interscope debut Rumble And Sway EP in 2013 showcasing his whiskey-laced growl. Commons’ workmanlike approach has been fed further by the work he’s doing for others. Among his successes, he co-wrote the hit “Jungle” for X Ambassadors with Alex Da Kid and Sam Harris, and toured with the band. He also had a Beats by Dre ad, and was featured on Eminem‘s ‘MMLP2’ album. Commons won Music Week’s Sync Artist Of The Year in 2016. This past year Commons composed the music for the summer blockbuster “Skyscraper” starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. These experiences opened his ears to a spectrum of genres, making him more interested in the path pop music is taking.
Below is a list of remaining tour dates for Jamie N. Commons supporting Jacob Banks:

Jessie Ware begins the year as she unveils new track “Adore You,” co-written and produced by Joseph Mount (Metronomy) and mixed by James Ford. The song is available now via PMR Records / Friends Keep Secrets / Interscope Records. Ware’s latest offering was lauded yesterday on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show as “Hottest Record In The World.” Listen to “Adore You” HERE.
“Adore You” is a continuous reminder of Ware’s ability to transcend the British clubbing scene in sophisticated fashion. Boasting an ethereal core and sophisticated vocals all round, “Adore You” is a fresh cut of classic UK house and dance music from the soul powerhouse. The tracks funk-infused and rhythmic production, thanks to Metronomy’s Joseph Mount, harmonises Jessie’s captivating sound, exciting a subtle essence of nostalgia to keep the spirit of clubbing music alive.
Speaking of the track, Jessie said, “I’ve wanted to work with Joe for such a long time and this is the first thing we did in the studio together. This is ‘Adore You.’ It’s just a little something to tie you over with until my next release. It feels fitting to put this out when I’m about to become a new mum again and feel the most confident I’ve ever felt about my music. Happy Valentines, I adore you all.”
It’s been a transformative period for Jessie that has seen her reconnect with her roots. Jessie has been in the studio working on her next album and has released “Adore You” as a taster record for what’s to come.
Today, Catfish and The Bottlemen share a brand new song “Fluctuate.”
The second new track from their upcoming album The Balance [out April 26 on Capitol Records], “Fluctuate” aired for the very first time today on long-time supporter Zane Lowe’s World Record on Apple Music’s Beats 1 and is now available as an instant download for fans who pre-order the album.
Before its official release, Catfish and the Bottlemen performed “Fluctuate” live throughout summer 2018 as a preview of new music to come, and the song quickly became a fan-favorite. Audiences can expect to hear more new tracks from The Balance during the band’s upcoming U.S. headline tour which kicks off March 12. Less than an hour after going on sale, their show at Brooklyn Steel in Brooklyn, NY on April 3 sold out. Tickets for the remaining shows are available HERE, and full routing can be found below.
“When I’m writing a new song, the audience is all I really see. I get a vision of them in my head before I properly hear the melody or anything like that,” explains front man Van McCann. “If we put three or four of these songs in the set, it’s going to be so strong. This run of shows we have coming up is just perfect timing, getting the chance to play new songs that go hand in hand with a wild night out.”
“Fluctuate” follows the band’s January single release: “Longshot,” which has amassed over 12.8 million global streams and is rapidly climbing Alternative radio charts. The song also scored Catfish and the Bottlemen their highest UK singles chart placing to date. Together with a string of sold-out UK arena dates, the wild reception to their first new music since 2016’s gold-certified The Ride brings renewed attention to the phenomena of the band’s unassailable ascent in the company of a youthful, ever-growing family of fans.
In the breaks between their electrifying outdoor and festival shows, McCann (vocals, guitars), Johnny Bond (guitars), Robert “Bob” Hall (drums), and Benji Blakeway (bass) recorded The Balance over a 12-month period in the company of Irish producer, Jacknife Lee. It was recorded in two, secluded studios; Grouse Lodge, in Moate, Republic of Ireland, and The Chapel in the countryside of East Lincolnshire. The album was mixed by Craig Silvey.

Today, Seattle-based singer and songwriter Mark Diamond releases his new single “Road” via Stardog Records/Republic Records.
Listen to “Road” HERE!
“Road” exclusively premiered on Billboard, who hailed it as “a synth-pop tune that sees the singer’s raspy vocals paired with a mid-tempo beat, inducing listeners to sway to the rhythm.” It arrives hot on the heels of the fan favorite “Steady.” Upon release, the single attracted critical praise with Variance describing it as “such a gem.” Not to mention he has amassed over 1.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify and counting.
On the song Mark noted: “‘Road’ was one that just needed to come out. The day before it was written, we decided to call it an early night at the studio and left 11pm. I tried to go meet up with friends but was having a hard time switching back to “reality” after spending so much time in the studio. I went into the studio the next day slightly on edge, so I laid on the ground behind the board and wrote this song. Immediately I felt better — like I had just explained to myself that this is my life now. I needed to realize that it was my choice, and it’s absolutely beautiful to live this way. Hope is important to me these days. I think the world could always use more of it.”
At 25 years old, Mark Diamond is a Seattle native who grew up listening to Tom Petty, Hootie & The Blowfish, The Beatles, R.E.M and Robbie Williams with his dad in his 1969 Chevy Malibu. Up until recently, Mark, now based in Los Angeles, was living in Seattle and working at a coffee shop for the last four years. He has been hard at work on his upcoming project with his debut song, “Steady,” leading the way. The song is included in a very large arsenal of finished tracks that he completed in 24 days with talented writer and producer Richard Craker, writing and recording in both London and Los Angeles. With his music, Mark wants to make people feel every emotion possible. “I have never had more fun making music in my entire life. Music should make people feel good more than it makes them feel bad. Not necessarily ‘happy’ songs, but songs that make you feel better about life than when you started listening to it.”
