Jordan Hollywood Releases The Video for “Finally”

Just recently, the 25-year old rapper-singer-songwriter and Broward Country native Jordan Hollywood releases his music video for “Finally,” which is the title track off his Quality Music Control Music debut EP FINALLY.

Watch the video HERE and listen to the EP HERE

In “Finally,” Jordan continues his trend of having cinematic visuals working with his longtime video director Christian Breslauer. The opening scene finds him in the center of a storm. This symbolizes Jordan’s feelings about people who betrayed him. He was hurt but instead of dwelling he channels that energy into hustling harder. The final scene displays half the room waking up from a slumber, which symbolizes people are finally starting to notice Jordan Hollywood.

“Finally” has so many different emotions for me. These built up emotions turned me into a new person. People counted me out. People turned their backs on me. People have been sleeping on me my whole career. Now people are finally waking up,” said Jordan on the video.

Jordan also recently released the music videos for “Leave Me” and “Let Me Find Out” which features Lil Baby. The video gained over a million views within a week of its release and now clocks over 7.5 million views. “Let Me Find Out” is also impacting airwaves as the second most added song at urban radio.

Jordan has been in the game as a co-writer for French Montana, Jason Derulo, and more. He spent time ghost writing for different rappers. Jordan has been releasing music since 2011 as a teenager and has collaborated with Yo Gotti, Lil Baby, Ronny J, Tory Lanez, Lil Durk, Hitmaka, and longtime producers SkipOnDaBeat (G-Eazy, Kodak Black) and platinum record making producer Smash David (Big Sean, Khalid, Chris Brown). Jordan comes from the diverse Broward County, the same area that spawned a slew of rappers from Kodak Black, Smokepurpp, Lil Pump and the late XXXTENTACION.

Logic Releases New Album

Multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated Artist Logic, who performed “One Day” with Ryan Tedder on The Ellen Show, presents chapter four of his Young Sinatra saga with the release of YSIV via Def Jam Recordings/Visionary Music Group.

“One Day,” the first advance single from YSIV, with over 46 million streams worldwide, was followed in early September by “Everybody Dies.” YSIV will be Logic’s last physical album, available for a limited time here.

View the MTV VMA live performance of “One Day” video here, featuring appearances from Michael Pena, Judy Reyes, Luis Guzman and more.

YSIV – with features by Wu-Tang Clan, Jaden Smith, Hailee Steinfeld and others (see track listing below) – is the eagerly awaited follow-up to Everybody, Logic’s breakout third album (released May 2017), which debuted at #1 Soundscan.  

Everybody’s RIAA 5x-platinum single 1-800-273-8255(National Suicide Prevention Lifeline) featuring fellow Def Jam artist Alessia Cara and Khalid, catapulted Logic to worldwide acclaim for bringing mental health and suicide prevention aware­ness to the critical conversation. The song earned Logic two Grammy® Award nominations – including the prestigious Song Of The Year – and a triumphant closing performance at the 2018 Grammy® Award.

In the interim, Logic dropped his Bobby Tarantino II mixtape, which rocketed to a #1 album chart debut in March 2018.  BTII spun off the RIAA gold Top 10 singles “44 More” and “Every­day” (featuring Philadel­phia DJ-producer Marshmello), and also boasted features from A-list heavies 2 Chainz, Big Sean, and Wiz Khalifa

In June 2018, Logic kicked off a massive 33-city North American summer amphi­theater and arena tour of the U.S. and Canada, including such prestigious venues as New York’s Madison Square Garden, PNE Amphitheatre in Vancouver, and the Forum in Los Angeles.

Kaepernick Madden Lyrics

By Reid Urban

While Colin Kaepernick made news on Thursday when he was featured in a Nike commercial on Sunday Night Football, he also made news in the video game industry.

Back in early August, EA Sports had edited out a lyric that featured Kaepernick’s name on the Madden 19 soundtrack. It led to outrage and condemnation towards EA Sports. Eventually, they put his name back into the lyrics.

Here is what the lyrics said, courtesy of Big Sean, “feed me to the wolves now I lead the pack and s—, you boys all cap, I’m more Colin Kaepernick.” Where that name was supposed to be said, it was edited out as if it were a profanity.

EA Sports came out with a statement that it was “an unfortunate mistake,” by taking Kaepernick’s name out of the song “Big Bank” by YG on that soundtrack.

This isn’t EA Sports’s first debacle featuring his name. The Madden 18 soundtrack had a song by Mike WiLL Made-It which featured his name, but was removed as well.

Both YG and Big Sean, whose song had Kaepernick’s name in the Madden 18 soundtrack, took to Twitter to express their displeasure with removing his name.

EA Sports also said about the name, “Members of the team misunderstood the fact that while we don’t have the rights to include Colin Kaepernick in the game, this doesn’t affect the soundtrack.”

XXXTENTACION

Tens of thousands of fans, friends, and family touched by the everlasting light of Jahseh Onfroy a.k.a. XXXTentacion congregated at Florida Panthers Stadium in Sunrise, FL to commemorate his life and celebrate the legacy he built earlier today.

Planned by his mom, the public viewing and fan memorial allowed audiences to pay their respects to the multiplatinum game-changing artist together and do so in harmony. A moving tribute video created by Justin Staple, Quinton Dominguez, and Tyler Benz [Vice/Noisey] played for the capacity crowd during the proceedings as XXXTentacion’s music played inside and out of the stadium. Various celebrity VIPs attended, including Lil Yachty, Ugly God, Denzel Curry, Skai Jackson, Lil Uzi Vert, Adam 22 and more. Fans also left thousands of messages on commutative poster boards. XXXTentacion’s tribute video and images from the memorial can be found below.

This represents the culmination of a week of memorials across the country by fans everywhere. Beyond an outpouring of social media support from Kanye West, Diddy, J. Cole, Big Sean, and more, Academy® Award winner Jamie Foxx took to the stage at the BET Awards to deliver a moving message in remembrance. Longtime friend and collaborator Ski Mask The Slump God donned a mask in honor as further tributes poured in from the ceremony courtesy of actor Christian Keyes, Desiigner, and many others. Meanwhile, Meek Mill sported an XXXTentacion shirt during his much talked-about performance of the new single “Stay Woke.”

At the same time, XXXTentacion’s multiplatinum single “SAD!” from the chart-dominating ? ascended to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 as if forever cementing his impact. Leaping from #52 to #1, the song becomes “the first posthumous #1 for a lead soloist since The Notorious B.I.G.’s ‘Mo Money Mo Problems in 1997,” according to Billboard. Eight other tracks hold spots in the Hot 100 such as “Moonlight” at #16, “Changes” at #18, “Jocelyn Flores” at #19, “FK Love” [feat. Trippie Redd] at #28, “Everybody Dies In Their Nightmares” at #42, “The Remedy for a Broke Heart (Why Am I So in Love)” at #58, “Hope” at #80, and “Numb” at #82. At Spotify, “SAD!” crushed Taylor Swift’s record for “Most Streams in a Single Day” and generated over 10.1 million in less than 24 hours.

XXXTentacion remains the voice of his generation, and that voice will live on forever.
