Kim Viera releases new single “AY AY AY” feat. Pitbull

Puerto Rican singer and songwriter Kim Viera releases her brand new singleAy Ay Ay feat. Pitbull today.

Listen to “Ay Ay Ay”: HERE

Kim’s sultry vocals ride over the summer-ready production verse by verse leading up to an addictive catchy hook. The Pitbull collaboration adds an extra flair creating a dance-ready hit.

In many ways, Kim Viera was destined to merge cultures in her music. Growing up of Puerto Rican descent in an artist-friendly New York household, her parents both worked in the entertainment industry. Dad launched, owned, and operated a live production company, and Mom could be heard as a backup singer for Willie Colon, Ruben Bladés, and more. Yearly vacations in Puerto Rico represented that balance as the travel mixtape spanned Selena, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, La India, Sia, Brandy, and Whitney Houston. A vocal powerhouse, she made her introduction on viral hits alongside YouTube mega-star Kurt Schneider in between writing for superstars such as Lil Wayne. In 2016, she landed a major label deal with Republic Records and made waves by contributing “Tribe” to the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for Pitch Perfect 3. This anthem quickly clocked 1.8 million Spotify streams. Along the way, she honed her “American Latina” style and set fire with her single “Como” feat. Daddy Yankee. It exploded as an international smash with 40.8 million cumulative streams and counting, while the music video surpassed 24 million views in under a year. Meanwhile, she garnered acclaim from Billboard and NPR who pegged it among “Our Favorite Latin Songs This Week, upon release, setting the stage for her first 2019 anthem “Here For Ya” and now “Ay Ay Ay” feat. Pitbull.

Social House “Haunt You” Video

Buzzing LA duo Social House—made up of Michael “Mikey” Foster and Charles “Scootie” Anderson—reveal the video for their latest single, “Haunt You,” today—watch and share HERE!
 

Billboard, who exclusively premiered the video earlier today, hails it as “Foster and Anderson’s most emotive, vulnerable work yet.” Of the song, the duo says, “This video is an ode to our loved ones. A reminder to cherish the time we have.” Released last month, “Haunt You” has already received praise from MTV, Stereogum, CNN, Business Insider, Idolator, PopCrush, Ones To Watch and many more. It is the first track from Social House’s debut EP, Everything Changed…, out on August 9th via School Boy Records/Republic Records.

Magic In The Hamptons” feat. Lil Yachty, which has over 100 million streams to date. Stay tuned for more from Social House!
 
Both born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA,
 Michael “Mikey” Foster and Charles “Scootie” Anderson initially struck a chord by sharing feelings from behind-the-scenes. The musicians met by way of producer Tommy Brown, sharing a house and creative hub in Sherman Oaks, CA. Together with Brown, they collectively penned and produced multiplatinum number one smashes such as “thank u, next” and “7 Rings” for Ariana Grande’s blockbuster thank u, next. One day, the pair cooked up an idea they couldn’t part with, which resulted in their debut single as Social House, “Magic in the Hamptons” feat. Lil Yachty. Not only did the track surpass over 100 million cumulative streams within a year, but it also paved the way for widespread acclaim from Billboard, Refinery29, HotNewHipHop, LADYGUNN, Ones To Watch and more.

Monsieur Job To Perform at the Colombia Billboard Latin Music Showcase in Bogota on July 26

The Band Will Join Wisin & Yandel, Greecy, Cosculluela, Choquibtown, Arthur Hanlon and More for A Spectacular Night of Multimedia and Music

On the heels of their highly successful and widely talked about performance at the ICON Awards in Colombia on June 13th, the fast rising international Pop/Latino/Underground group Monsieur Job will be performing alongside some of the industry’s top artists including Wisin & Yandel, Greecy, Cosculluela, Choquibtown and Arthur Hanlon at the Colombia Billboard Latin Music Showcase on Friday July 26th at the Movistar Arena in Bogota. Last year, the Billboard Latin Music Showcase was held for the first time in Bogota, where Colombian artists such as Manuel Medrano, Maia and Gusi, among others performed.

Monsieur Job has been very busy so far this year, releasing new music including “Vidana”, “Mi Contagie”, “Dulce Soledad”, “Gucci Celine”, “Desechable”, “Fire Fire (Block Remix)”, “Gidi Gidi Gi”, “Tanto Tiempo Sin Verte”, “I Wanna Be Your Dog (Block Remix)”, and “Flexin (Block Remix)” and producing videos for many of the singles including media favorites “Busque Mal”(which was also directed by Iye Teblu AKA Toby Holguin and his production company Mierda Frita) and “Homie (Block Remix)” Feat. Vick D.

Along with the singles and videos, bandleader Toby Holguin has shifted focus somewhat recently, adding writing/directing/acting/producing to his resume with TWO upcoming films – his new debut short film, the aforementioned “Gidi Gidi Gi” which he wrote and directed as Iye Teblu, along with Peruvian film “Un Hombre Sin Ley”. Both are through his “Mierda Frita” production company based in Bogotá, Colombia that dedicates itself to film products like music videos, short films, and feature films as well as film services.

Toby Holguin lives music and gives music life. It was Toby’s vision to create Monsieur Job, a band that will rock you make you move your feet. The band, whose name is derived from “Job” of the bible; a righteous man who is tested by God, enduring many tragedies and hardships while struggling to remain faithful – will make you cry with passion. Formed by Holguin from Cali, Colombia, a beautiful place high in the mountains above the clouds. Toby then asked Charlie Illera from Barranquilla, Colombia, and Leo Jaramillo from Bogota, Colombia to become one musically as Monsieur Job. All of them live and breathe their own style of music combined they are Monsieur Job. Toby, Leo and Charlie spin records as DJs constantly for different pools and venues around the world. Moreover, Toby had the idea to start doing Urban Music besides Chill Out and Electronic Music, which is the vision that created the album “Bass Passi”. They started dropping broken beats with a more festive, shaky, groovy Caribbean Latin flavor turning it into an international exclusive mash up of world talents and a unique blend of genres.

For their debut release, Chow Chow Eyyy Pow Pow, the record has hit the Euro Indie Music Chart at #1 for 9 consecutive weeks as well as progressive singles; “Kick it” Remix feat. Charly Black, “Pica Pica”, Niña Shake Your Body” feat. No Mercy & Vojke Djans and “Chilliando Hangueando” feat. Cholo reaching the #1 position as well, the Digital Radio Tracker Top 10, and Top 200 for Best Albums, #2 for the Billboard Latin Rhythm Albums Chart, and the Billboard Top 10 Heatseekers Albums Chart for their album “Bass Passi”. This album was recorded in Bogota and Miami at Basswalk Studios, Outta Limits Studios in Miami, and Barba Studios in Belgrade and mastered at Sterling Studios, New York.

TJ Porter Releases Debut Album

From Harlem, for Harlem, TJ Porter has established his undisputed street cred with a streak of uncompromising singles and videos – highlighted by “Glowin’ Up,” “Tricky,” “Harder Than Ever,” “Do You Care?,” and of course his hometown celebration “Harlem” – all setting the stage for the release today of VOICE OF THE TRENCHES, his debut album via Def Jam Recordings.

LISTEN TO VOICE OF THE TRENCHES HERE

 With the release of VOICE OF THE TRENCHES, TJ drops the gritty new video for “Harlem,” which COMPLEX hails as “one of the best songs of the year, so far.”

WATCH “HARLEM” MUSIC VIDEO HERE

 “Porter’s bravado bleeds New York,” wrote Billboard passionately this week of the former high school basketball star, whose closest friends include future NBA draft prospects Cole Anthony and Julian Newman. There but for fortune, TJ’s career might have been on the court with them, instead of in the recording studio and onstage. As TJ showed during the recent NBA All-Star Weekend, however, at the Coca-Cola stage performance and then at a special 3-on-3 matchup game, the two driving forces of his life will probably always co-exist. 

 “I’m not a basketball player who makes music, I’m an artist who plays basketball, sometimes,” he told the Billboard reporter. “I make music. I want people to take me seriously as an artist. I’m cool with all the rappers and stuff like Meek [Mill] and all, but I need them to take me serious with the music. I want that longevity. I ain’t trying to go to the NBA.”

K-Syran performs

In K-Syran‘s Words:

What a week! From my shoot in a studio in London where I stayed 3 hours in a pool filming underwater shots in the beautiful Three Graces dresses, to flying to Malaga for my Manilva Pride gig.

Spain is beautiful with it’s gorgeous coast line and delicious food.
I arrived the day before so that I could get to enjoy swimming in the sea.
On the big day, Saturday, I was picked up by a lovely man who volunteered to help out. This is why I love performing for GayPride; it’s a celebration of love and everyone is so generous and helpful. The tech went brilliantly with super talented producer Dan Boots and team from Intimacy Records attending, checking sound and images. I didn’t get to meet my dancers but lucky to finally meet amazing Christian Lee Dun who organises Manilva Pride.

We were all picked up at around ten thirty, I was dolled up in my striking green K-Syran designer dress by renowned Zaid Farouki and jewlery by Esfir Jewels – I felt like a diva! There were thousands of people already attending cheering and having a wonderful time.

I had the best time ever on stage with them and the loving fun audience cheering us on. Such a thrill to perform my own songs live in front of an audience who are so warm and generous and to see them dancing to my tunes makes me feel that all the work I do is defiantly worth it!

HEY VIOLET debut new video for “CLOSE MY EYES”

Fresh off a headline mini tour of the U.S., Hey Violet premiere the video for their new track Close My Eye today on Vevo. Watch it HERE. Shot in Los Angeles, the video was directed by Marcella Cytrynowicz who also lensed the video for the bands recent single Better By Myself.

Close My Eyes, which was written by Hey Violet with Sean Kennedy, Tim Anderson, and Aron Forbes (the latter two who co-produced), is the second of four new tracks the band is set to release throughout the spring and summer. The first, Better By Myself, was released in April, along with an official video that can be watched HERE. Idolator called Better By Myself as catchy as it is relatable, while Celeb Mix says the song’s mid-tempo beat and addictive chorus will leave the listener singing [it] all day. Watch Hey Violet perform Better By Myself live at Capitol Studios HERE.

Close My Eyes is essentially about living in a fantasy land, says front woman Rena Lovelis. It’s about the idea of still wanting to be with an ex who has already moved on. There’s definitely a level of denial that goes into being in that sort of headspace because you’re basically rejecting the present reality and not allowing yourself to move forward. The song sounds very calm and chill but in the lyrical content there’s an air of tension because of that refusal to accept things as they are.

Hey Violet’s 2017 debut album From the Outside featured the singles Guys My Age, which has amassed over 250 million global streams, Break My Heart, and Hoodie which is approaching 200 million streams. The album racked up critical praise, including accolades from The New York Times, which called it one of this year’s best and most provocative pop albums. Stereogum noted that it has plenty of attitude thanks to Lovelis vocal and lyrical presence, and NYLON declared, I challenge you to find a debut album as explosive and technicolored as Hey Violet’s From The Outside(the album) pulses with cheeky hooks and middle fingers to the status quo. Lead singer Rena Lovelis’ voice is arena-shaking. You’re in for one hell of a ride.

Over the past few years, Hey Violet, which is Rena Lovelis, her sister Nia Lovelis (drums), and Casey Moreta (lead guitar) have steadily built an engaged fanbase with their powerful, immaculately crafted alt-pop songs. Guys My Age was named one of the Best Songs of 2016 by The New York Times, who called it teen-pop’s revenge: an urgent dark song about sexual rebellion and one of the 20 Best Songs of 2016 by V Magazine. In 2017, Hey Violet was also nominated for an iHeart Radio award for Best Underground Alternative Band, dubbed an Artist Primed For A Breakout by Billboard, and named Artist To Watch by The Guardian, PopCrush, and more. The band has racked over half a billion streams worldwide, sold out their North American headline tour and performed on both The Late Late Show With James Corden and Late Night With Seth Meyers.

ILLENIUM “Good Things Fall Apart” Music Video

After crossing 21 million cumulative streams in just a few weeks’ time and vaulting on to multiple charts, ILLENIUM shares the epic official music video for his new single “Good Things Fall Apart” with Jon Belliontoday. 

Watch it HERE

“Good Things Fall Apart” is available for streaming and purchase HERE via Astralwerks.

The clip places the two artists on a galactic voyage beyond the outskirts of an imperiled planet. Donning regal navy blues and backed by a full band, they perform the song mid-flight in between action-packed vignettes of the ship’s crew attempting to regain order in the cockpit. Flashes of bright light match the peaks of Bellion’s stunning delivery as ILLENIUM’s rich production reverberates. Everything culminates in an entrancing blast as a fiery phoenix fittingly rises into the fore during the final shot. Strikingly, this science fiction mini-epic also hints at more to come…

“Good Things Fall Apart” blasted off with stratospheric success upon arrival. During its first week at radio, it became “#1 Most Added at Alternative.” Additionally, it debuted at #13 on the Billboard Dancechart. To date, total streams have surpassed 21 million and counting. Attracting acclaim, Billboard dubbed it, “a happy slice of emo-inspired with a side of radio pop.”

 “Good Things Fall Apart” also paves the way for more new music very soon. Now, it’s on the fast track to become the crossover smash of the summer! 

The song comes hot on the heels of two explosive anthems from ILLENIUM. To date, his single “Crashing” featuring Bahari has amassed nearly 40 million total streams. Meanwhile, the follow-up “Pray” featuring Kameron Alexander soundtracked a new HBO documentary.

Plus, the recent “Pray” remix packaged engendered enthusiastic critical acclaim. Dancing Astronaut  placed it on an NMF Roundup. YourEDM praised it as “intensely varied,” while RunTheTrapproclaimed it, “a phenomenal remix pack.”

 Also, be sure to catch ILLENIUM on tour. He recently performed a DJ set at Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas.. Next up, he’s set to touch down Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, continue his Las Vegas residency at Hakkasan, and headline both Madison Square Garden(September 21) and Red Rocks Amphitheater (October 10, 11, 12) in the fall. Dates are selling out rapidly. Remaining tickets are available here:http://illenium.com/tour/

ILLENIUM creates immersive emotional experiences, displaying an adeptness for crafting aural arrangements that vary in style, beauty, complexity and depth. With two full-length albums to his credit and sundry singles and remixes, he has surpassed the one billion stream mark across his discography.

His debut album, Ashes, was released to critical acclaim in early 2016. Awake followed in 2017 and hit #1 on in the iTunes Electronic Dance Charts in 12 countries. Named one of the “10 Best Dance/Electronic Albums of 2017” by Billboard, it included such singles as “Feel Good” (with Gryffin featuring Daya) and “Crawl Outta Love.” Praising the album as “a gorgeous collection of future bass, piercing vocals, and barefaced lyrics,” Dancing Astronaut said, “While it might seem premature to call an album a ‘masterpiece,’ no other title would fit Awake so well.” Billboardobserved, “The phoenix is ILLENIUM ‘s mascot, and Awake is the emergent moment of that story.”

ILLENIUM’s Awake Live headline tour captivated audiences across the country, and sold out such renowned venues as The Shrine, Terminal 5, Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, Aragon Ballroom and Red Rocks. His remix of Flume’s “Say It” earned him an Electronic Music Award for “Best Remix” in 2017. ILLENIUM’s recent collaborations include “Don’t Give Up On Me” with Kill The Noise ft. Mako and “Gold (Stupid Love)” with Excision ft. Shallows.

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.
