Julia Michaels Releases Intimate Video for “Body”

Grammy® Award-nominated multiplatinum singer and songwriter JULIA MICHAELS just released the video for “Body,” a deeply personal song from her latest release Inner Monologue Part 2. Watch HERE.

The video premiered on Teen Vogue yesterday alongside an as-told-to essay where MICHAELS touched on the

inspiration behind her new song and video, and her own experiences with learning to love herself. Of the video MICHAELS says, “In the video for “Body,” I came up with the idea to start in a bunch of layers, and by the end I’m completely stripped. The second verse of the song is me talking about how I cover up. I wear big, oversized sweatshirts so that I can cover my body. I do all these things to make me feel more comfortable in my own skin, but really it’s making me more uncomfortable when I take it off because I’m constantly masking myself. I wanted to show people how I am versus how I could be.”

Julia will bring the song to life on the second leg of THE INNER MONOLOGUE TOUR which kicks off October 16 in Tempe, AZ and stops coast-to-coast. Check out the full confirmed itinerary below. Tickets are on-sale now HERE.

GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer and songwriter Julia Michaels has transformed the pop music landscape not only from behind-the-scenes as one of the most in-demand songwriters, but in the spotlight as a solo artist as well. Her rapid rise can be attributed to identifiable honesty in every lyric, as exemplified in her triple-platinum selling debut single “Issues”.  In 2018, she garnered GRAMMY® Awards nominations in the categories of “Best New Artist” and “Song of the Year” for “Issues,” which amassed nearly 2 billion streams worldwide.

Continuing that success, “Issues” notably became “the top-selling debut single by an artist in 2017,” and placed as the only solo female composition on Variety’s “30 Most Consumed Songs of 2017.” As a songwriter, MICHAELS has co-written 21 titles that have charted on the Billboard Hot 100, eleven of which have hit the Top 40, including “Issues.”  Those songwriting credits include smashes like Justin Bieber’s “Sorry,” Selena Gomez’s “Good for You” [feat. A$AP Rocky] & “Hands To Myself,” and Hailee Steinfeld’s “Love Myself.”  She’s alsowritten titles for Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani, Linkin Park, Ed Sheeran, John Legend, P!NK, Maroon 5, Jessie Ware, Janelle Monae, KeithUrban, Shawn Mendes and more.  The cumulative worldwide stream tally for songs she has co-written is 20 billion to date.

Since her debut as a solo artist, MICHAELS has built an enviable touring resume, joining artists like Maroon 5, Keith Urban, Shawn Mendes, Niall Horan, and P!NK, around the globe.

DJ Snake “Carte Blanche”

Multi-platinum producer DJ Snake has released his highly anticipated sophomore album, Carte Blanche. Available now via all digital retailers, Carte Blanche includes appearances by such heavy-hitters as Cardi B, Offset, J. Balvin, Sean Paul, and more.

Listen to Carte Blanche by DJ Snake HERE.

Carte Blanche features the double-platinum single “Taki Taki” ft. Selena Gomez, Ozuna& Cardi B — the second global #1 record for DJ Snake. After premiering in September, “Taki Taki” became the ninth-fastest music video of all time to amass 100 million views on YouTube. With its video now at over 1.4 billion views, the track also hit #1 on the US Hot Latin Songs chart and #11 on the Billboard Hot 100. 

With its title translating to “the freedom to do whatever one chooses,” Carte Blanche finds DJ Snake fully embodying that spirit by breaking all musical and creative boundaries. A native of Paris, he names his country’s cultural melting pot — as well as his worldwide travels in recent years — as a key inspiration in bringing the genre-defying sound of Carte Blanche to life. To that end, the artwork for Carte Blanche features images of the iconic Arc De Triomphe (a global symbol of freedom).

In addition to “Taki Taki,” Carte Blanche includes hits like “Enzo” (a collaboration with Sheck Wes, featuring Offset, 21 Savage & Gucci Mane), the India-inspired club smash “Magenta Riddim,” and the bilingual summer anthem “Loco Contigo” (with J. Balvin & Tyga).

Released last month, “Loco Contigo” is accompanied by a wildly colorful video from Colin Tilley (an award-winning filmmaker known for his work with Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, and Nicki Minaj). Check out the “Loco Contigo” video HERE.

 

Track listing for Carte Blanche by DJ Snake:

1. Butterfly Effect

2. Quiet Storm ft. Zomboy

3. When The Lights Go Down

4. Recognize ft. Majid Jordan

5. No More ft. Zhu

6. Made In France ft. PMF (Tchami, Malaa & Mercer)

7. Enzo ft. Offset, 21 Savage, Sheck Wes & Gucci Mane

8. Smile ft. Bryson Tiller

9. Try Me ft. Plastic Toy

10. Loco Contigo Feat J. Balvin & Tyga

11. Taki Taki Feat Selena Gomez, Ozuna & Cardi B

12. Fuego ft. Anitta & Sean Paul

13. Magenta Riddim

14. Frequency 75 

15. South Side ft. Eptic

16. No Option ft. Burna Boy

17. Paris ft. Gashi

 

Carte Blanche arrives as the follow-up to DJ Snake’s first studio album Encore — a 2016 release that debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 and featured the smash single “Let Me Love You” ft. Justin Bieber (a four-times-platinum hit that shot to #4 on the Billboard Hot 100).

Appearing at the world’s biggest summer festivals, DJ Snake will take the stage this weekend at Tomorrowland in Belgium. Visit http://djsnake.com/tour for more info on upcoming tour dates.

Pi’erre Bourne “The Life of Pi’erre 4”

One of the most innovative forces in the rap game today, Pi’erre Bourne takes his artistry to whole new heights on his long-awaited new project The Life of Pi’erre 4, out now on SossHouse/ Interscope Records. With every song written, produced, engineered, and arranged all on his own, the album again shows the uncompromising originality he’s revealed in producing Billboard Hot 100 hits like Playboi Carti’s double-platinum smash “Magnolia,” and Travis Scott’s “Watch” ft. Lil Uzi Vert and Kanye West. Praised by Complex for “redefining trap music,” the 25-year-old artist/producer now brings his creative integrity to a lo-fi yet high-energy sound that’s emotionally powerful and entirely unpredictable.

Check out Drake showing love for Pi’erre’s new project below:  

Tomorrow, Pi’erre will be hosting a show live on NTS Radio at 12pm PST. Listen here: https://www.nts.live

Born in Kansas under the name Jordan Jenks, Pi’erre lived between the Carolinas and Belize during his childhood. He also spent a great deal of time in Queens, New York, where an uncle taught him to use FruityLoops and encouraged him to start making his own music while Pi’erre was still in elementary school. Pi’erre later studied music engineering at the SAE Institute in Atlanta, and soon earned significant cash by recording for local artists. After making his name as a producer, he landed an engineering job at Epic Records, where he quickly found himself in high demand among fast-rising artists like Young Nudy.

During his time at Epic, Pi’erre dedicated his off-hours to working on his own projects, dropping the first installment of his Life of Pi’erre series in September 2016. With both The Life of Pi’erre 2 and The Life of Pi’erre 3 arriving in the next few months, he left Epic at the end of that year in order to devote more time to his own music. As he continued producing for artists like Jay Critch, Big Sean, and Playboi Carti, Pi’erre moved forward with the making of The Life of Pi’erre 4, and in late 2017 scored an artist deal with Interscope Records. 

Since signing with Interscope, Pi’erre has toured with the likes of Drake, Nudy, and Carti, in addition to launching SossHouse (his own Interscope imprint,) and generating buzz with recent singles like “Hacked My Instagram” and “Marie Curie.” In the midst of bringing The Life of Pi’erre 4 to life, he also teamed up with Nudy for the critically acclaimed album Sli’merre—a May 2019 release named one of the year’s best rapper/producer collaborations by Pitchfork, who hailed Pi’erre as “one of the most interesting contemporary rap producers.”

About Gunna

When the history books open up, “Drip” will forever be associated with the meteoric and platinum rise of Gunna. Dubbed “The King of Drip” and pegged “to take over the rap world” by Interview, he generated over one billion cumulative streams and achieved one platinum and two gold certifications within a year. Now, he submerges the whole game in “Drip” on his 2019 full-length debut, Drip or Drown 2 [Young Stoner Life Records/300 Entertainment], and singles “One Call” and “Speed It Up.”

Born and raised in College Park, GA, he immediately gravitated towards innovative hip-hop from the likes of OutKast, Cam’Ron, and Future. Signed to YSL Records, he famously teamed up with label boss Young Thug and Travis Scott on “Floyd Mayweather” from 2016’s Jeffery. Shortly after, he dropped the seminal mixtape Drip Season. 2017 saw him serve up the sequel Drip Season 2 and Drip or Drown. He ascended to superstardom during 2018. Drip Season 3 put up unbelievable numbers, earned Drake’s fandom, and garnered looks from Rolling Stone, GQ, Vogue, Complex, and more. Not to mention, he joined forces with frequent collaborator Lil Baby for the collaborative Drip Harder, which bowed at #4 on the Billboard Top 200. The project yielded the platinum Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 hit “Drip Too Hard” and gold “Never Recover” [with Drake]. He teamed up with Travis Scott and NAV for the ASTROWORLD favorite “Yosemite,” Mariah Carey for “Stay Long Love You,” and Metro Boomin for “Space Cadet,” which they performed on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Plus, he participated in fashion shows for  Pyer Moss, Off-White, and Yohji Yamamoto.

Now that Drip Season is underway, it’s never going to end.

blackbear Releases “1 SIDED LOVE”

 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. 

 

Young Thug Wins “Song of the Year”

Young Thug won his first GRAMMY for “Song of the Year” – one of the awards top honors- at the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards, for his songwriting work on Childish Gambino’s “This is America”.

Released in May last year, the song and it’s accompanying visual quickly went viral, with subject matter that touches on gun violence, racism and discrimination within America. The song has racked up nearly 500 million views on YouTube, and makes history as the first rap song to ever win the award.

“This is America” was nominated alongside other hits like Drake’s “God’s Plan”, Ella Mai’s “Boo’d Up”, Black Panther single, “All The Stars”, Shawn Mendes’ “In My Blood”, “The Joke” by Brandi Carlile, A Star Was Born’s “Shallow,” and Zedd’s “The Middle.”

Young Thug also performed alongside Camila Cabello at the ceremony, performing their record breaking song, “Havana” for the broadcast’s cold open. The song, which hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Charts, was also nominated for a GRAMMY for “Best Pop Solo Performance.” The live performance also included appearances from Jay Balvin, Ricky Martin and Arturo Sandoval.

“Performing on the GRAMMY stage was such an honor.” – Young Thug

Young Thug also walked the carpet at the event, spending time with Bebe Rexha and interviewing with GRAMMY winning rapper, Eve for CBS.

Cardi B, Jorja Smith and MØ to play Roskilde Festival 2019

More than 180 music acts will play Roskilde Festival 2019. The Cure, Robyn, Travis Scott, Christine and the Queens, Tears for Fears and many more have already been announced, and they will be joined by 28 new artists from five different continents.

The queen of hip-hop
Straight out of the Bronx, 26-year-old Cardi B is set to headline Northern Europe’s biggest festival. The undisputed queen of hip-hop is responsible for chart-topping singles including Bodak Yellow and I Like It from her debut blockbuster album Invasion of Privacy. With seven Grammy nominations to her name, she is the first female rapper in 19 years to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart and the first ever to have three singles in the top 10 at the same time.

English R&B and pop revelation Jorja Smith is also heading for the stars: Having won the Critics’ Choice at the Brit Awards, Jorja Smith finally released her acclaimed debut album Lost & Found last year. The 21-year-old has worked with artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Kali Uchis and Stormzy, and it is no surprise that she is nominated for Best New Artist at the 2019 Grammys.

Early in her career, Danish superstar  enjoyed a breakthrough on Roskilde Festival’s talent stage. Off the back of her new album Forever Neverland, the Dane is ready to conquer the iconic Orange Stage once again.

Head of programme Anders Wahrén says:
“Cardi B, Jorja Smith and MØ are very different artists, but they’re all bonafide stars. From hip-hop to R&B to pop, they’re shaping the musical landscape, and we can’t wait to see them triumph at Roskilde Festival 2019.”

Bring Me the Horizon are back at Roskilde, this time for a rock lesson on the main stage. Reinvigorated stoner hip-hoppers Cypress Hill are also ready for a triumphant return, 23 years after their last visit, off the back of acclaimed new album Elephants On Acid.

All hail the songwriters of the future
Australian artist Stella Donnelly is one of the most hyped songwriters out there despite not yet having released a full album. Tackling very difficult subjects, her razor-sharp lyrics are personal and brutally honest. Julien Baker, equally, deals with tough issues such as sexuality and self-doubt. She is also part of the alternative supergroup boygenius together with Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus. The latter is also announced today, having released one of the most praised indie rock albums of 2018, Historian.

Virtually unknown outside of London, teenage quartet Black Midi are deemed the next big thing in the UK: Fans of math-rock and noise will have plenty to look forward to here. Plus there’s more from Sophie, Khruangbin, Girlpool and many more.

Roskilde Festival 2019 will be full of talents, and this is reflected in the festival’s Art Zone as well. Danish artists Alexander Tillegreen, Biba Fibiger and Ida Sønder Thorhauge are among the first to be announced for the arts programme along with acclaimed Brazilian artist Assume Vivid Astro Focus who will build a colourful, psychedelic stage in the Art Zone.
