The hottest breakout multi-platinum hip-hop superstar of 2019 and Cash Money West recording artist Blueface releases new single “Close Up” featuring Jeremih today. Get it HERE.
The track illuminates another side of Blueface, showcasing his diverse talents as he delivers a West Coast love song.
On the heels of the stratospheric success of his debut EP, Dirt Bag, Blueface is putting the finishing touches on his highly anticipated full-length album—coming very soon.
Blueface flipped rap upside down in 2019 with his own flow, flare, and fire. Dirt Bag yielded one banger after another with “Bleed It” [68 million Spotify streams], “Daddy” featuring Rich The Kid [49 million Spotify streams], “Bussdown” featuring Offset [14 million Spotify streams], and “Bussin” featuring Lil Pump [9.7 million Spotify streams], to name a few. As part of his recent inclusion on the XXL “Freshman Cover,” the outlet proclaimed him “one of the hottest new acts in the game” and claimed “the 22-year-old rapper has drawn comparisons to legends like E-40 and Juvenile due to the off-kilter flow that finds him rapping against the current of whatever beat he’s on.” Echoing this sentiment, Complex wrote, “his cadence—skittering and almost comical—doesn’t fit neatly into the current (or past) landscape of hip-hop. But that’s exactly what makes him so interesting.”
Last night, JBL Fest’s CLUB JBL Event brought together some of the hottest talent for live, VIP performances and appearances in Vegas. Priyanka Chopra Jonas took a break from promoting her latest movie to have some fun as the host of the night, showing up with her husband and surprise guest Nick Jonas. Additional appearances were made from the “Vanderpump Rules” cast alongside dynamic performances by Bebe Rexha and DJs Armin van Buuren and Tigerlily.
Today, NE-YO released Another Kind Of Christmas (Motown Records/Compound Entertainment), his first-ever holiday album. The three-time GRAMMY® winner brings his own unique point-of-view to the season with five newly-penned tracks and reimagined versions of thoughtfully-selected Christmas classics – including “Someday At Christmas,” a plea for peace written by Motown songwriters Ron Miller and Bryan Wells for Stevie Wonder during the Vietnam War, and Marvin Gaye’s “I Want To Come Home For Christmas,” inspired by the plight of prisoners of war.
“NE-YO says, of the album “see you this Holiday season and every holiday season after! Think you’re gonna love it that much!”
“Just Ain’t Christmas” candidly captures the pain of a Christmas Eve break-up while the playful double entendres of “Open Mine Tonight” celebrate what goes down after the kids go to bed. “Talk About It” evokes childhood Christmas memories, complete with the inevitable family dramas that unfold – “somebody gon’ fight, somebody gon’ cry, somebody gon’ try to leave/Then they gon’ squash it all right before it’s time to eat.” NE-YO, Satori and Dre Island each take a verse on the reggae-influenced “Christmas Vibez,” which imagines a tropical holiday getaway for two. Other guest artists include Candice Boyd on “Carol Of The Bells” and RaVaughn on “Someday At Christmas.”
NE-YO puts his stamp on such standards as Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas,” “Merry Christmas Baby,” originally recorded by Johnny Moore’s Three Blazers, and “The Christmas Song,” which was written by Robert Wells and Mel Tormé and first recorded by the Nat King Cole Trio. He recorded Another Kind Of Christmas in Montego Bay, Jamaica with longtime collaborator Curtis “Sauce” Wilson producing many of the tracks.
NE-YO has sold a cumulative 20+ million adjusted albums worldwide. He has won three GRAMMY® awards and been honored with a total of 14 nominations, His first single, 2005’s “So Sick,” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was certified quadruple Platinum. Since then, he has racked up a collection of hit singles – including “Sexy Love,” “Closer,” “Because of You,” “Miss Independent” and “Push Back” featuring Bebe Rexha and Stefflon Don. Three of his albums have entered SoundScan’s Top Current Albums chart at No. 1.
He has proven to be as powerful with his pen as he is in the recording studio and on stage. The Las Vegas native quickly became known as a go-to hitmaker, penning bangers like Rihanna’s “Unfaithful,” “Russian Roulette,” and “Take a Bow,” along with Beyoncé’s 2006 breakup anthem “Irreplaceable” and songs for such artists as Jennifer Hudson, Usher, Carrie Underwood, Celine Dion, among others. NE-YO’s film and television credits include “Save the Last Dance,” “World of Dance,” “Battle: Los Angeles,” “Stomp the Yard,” George Lucas’ “Red Tails,” “Empire,” “The Wiz Live!” and “Step Up: High Water.”
Today record-breaking rap duo Krept & Konan announce they will be releasing their highly anticipated forthcoming album ‘Revenge Is Sweet’ on 1st November 2019. To mark the announcement, Krept & Konan have dropped Krept’s ‘Morley’s Freestyle’ with accompanying visual filmed outside Morely’s in Thornton Heath. Watch it here.
The release of Krept & Konan’s second studio album ‘Revenge Is Sweet’ will precedetheirupcoming headline nationwide UK tour which will kick off on 23rd November at Olympic Theatre, Dublin and wrap up on 5th December at The O2, London. The album announcement comes hot on the heels of Krept & Konan fronting BBC Docuseries, The Rap GameUK, a competition series looking for the next big British rap star which was won by Kiico, who is now signed to Krept & Konan’s record label, Play Dirty.
I Spyft. Headie One and K Trap, the first single to be lifted from ‘Revenge Is Sweet’ debuted at #18 in the UK charts on release over the summer, making it Krept & Konan’s secondTop 20 single. It followed the release of Ban Drill (with its accompanying Rapman directed short film), which addressed the controversial move by the State and the Police to ban Drill music. Around the release of Ban Drill, Krept & Konan launched a change.org petition (asking the CPS to ‘stop silencing musicians’) and were invited by Diane Abbott MP to the Houses of Parliament to debate whether or not censoring Drill music and prosecuting Drill artists is an effective way to combat crime.
In 2017 Krept and Konan made history with 7 DAYSand 7 NIGHTS, when they became the first act ever to have two mixtapes simultaneously enter the Top 10 of the Official UK Albums chart. They’ve now notched up a #2 album, two top 10 mixtapes (with 7 DAYS now certified silver), one platinum single (Freak Of The Week ft. Jeremih), three silver singles, and a total of over half a billion streams. The past eighteen months alone has seen Krept & Konan sell out a headline show at Alexandra Palace, perform main slots at Wireless and Reading & Leeds Festivals, and successfully launch their restaurant Crepes & Cones in their native Croydon.
‘REVENGE IS SWEET’, RELEASED VIA VIRGIN EMI, IS AVAILABLE TO PRE-ORDER NOW:
Krept & Konan made chart history in 2017 with the release of mixtapes 7 DAYS and 7 NIGHTSwhen they became the first act ever to have two mixtapes simultaneously enter the Top 10 of the Official UK Albums chart. A UK first (no other British artist has released two mixtapes on the same day),7 DAYS and 7 NIGHTSreflect the two sides of Krept & Konan’s signature sound and boast features from the likes of J Hus, Skepta, Stormzy, Abra Cadabra, Jhene Aiko, Hudson East, Tory Lanez and more.
Krept & Konan have repeatedly broken records while consistently breaking ground – this recent record, is the third the duo have broken: In 2013 their Young Kingzmixtape shot into the top 20 of the Official UK album charts, earning them a world record for the Highest-Charting UK album by an Unsigned Act. In 2015 their debut album The Long Way Home became the highest charting British Rap album in UK chart history after debuting at no. 2 in the official UK album charts.
Krept & Konan, who have received numerous awards (including a BET Award and five MOBO Awards), are universally acclaimed and respected within the global music community. They have collaborated with renowned MCs and singer-songwriters on both sides of the pond – including (but not limited to): Rick Ross, Ty Dolla $ign, Stormzy, Wiz Khalifa, Jeremiah, Skepta, Ed Sheeran and Emeli Sande. Their ongoing critical acclaim and chart success has helped pave the way for the likes of J-Hus, Kojo Funds, Abra Cadabra, Yungen, Mo Stack and Section Boys (to name but a few): if Wiley is the Godfather of Grime, then Krept & Konan are the trailblazers of a second generation/ wave in British urban music artists – from Rap to Afrobeat. In the words of Stormzy, Krept & Konan are “UK rap royalty”.
Krept & Konan have a huge live following. In addition to performing on the main stages at multiple festivals (V, Wireless, Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds), they have embarked on numerous sold-out UK & European headline tours, most recently performing two back to back shows at Kentish Town Forum and a triumphant sold out date at Alexandra Palace.
Aside from a busy live and recording schedule, the past eighteen months has seen Krept & Konan launch their own restaurant Crepes & Conesin Croydon, and (alongside Radio 1Xtra’s DJ Target) front BBC Docuseries, The Rap GameUK, a competition series looking for the next big British rap star which was won by Kiico, who is now signed to Krept & Konan’s record label, Play Dirty.
Billy Ray Cyrus is making room on the trophy shelf again as the BET Hip Hop Awards honors the Flatwoods, Kentucky singer-songwriter with two trophies for Best Collab, Duo or Group and Single of the Year with Lil Nas X on the record shattering 19-week No. 1 “Old Town Road” (remix, featuring Cyrus).
“Thank you to the BET Hip Hop Awards and hip hop/rap community for the Best Collab and Single of the Year wins. You kept OTR at No. 1 for 19 consecutive weeks. More importantly, you made me feel welcomed into your home and world. I’m dedicating these wins to Mr. Nipsey Hussle – a legend gone way too soon,” Cyrus shared.
Recently, Cyrus learned he was nominated in the Musical Event of the Year category with Lil Nas X during the 53rd CMA Awards after taking home two MTV VMA Moonmen for Song of the Year and Best Direction for Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road (Remix, featuring Cyrus).”
About Billy Ray Cyrus: Billy Ray Cyrus became a household name over the course of his unprecedented career which spans across music, television and theater. Throughout his nearly three decade career, Cyrus has achieved worldwide success as a singer, songwriter, actor and producer. The Flatwoods, KY native exploded onto the music scene when his first album, Some Gave All, debuted on the all-genre Billboard album chart at No. 1 and stayed there for a record-breaking 17 weeks in 1992. The lead single, “Achy Breaky Heart,” became a phenomenon as the single went multi-platinum. After “Achy Breaky Heart,” Cyrus followed up with back to back hits “It Could’ve Been Me,” “She’s Not Crying Anymore,” “Wher’m I Gonna Live When I Get Home?” and the anthemic “Some Gave All.” Cyrus knocked himself out of the top Billboard position with the his second No. 1 album, It Won’t Be The Last, featuring smash hits “In the Heart of a Woman,” “Words By Heart” and “Somebody New.” Cyrus followed up with dozens more that defined country music. “To me, my most defining moment in country was being joined by George Jones and Loretta Lynn on my self-penned ‘Country Music Has the Blues,’” said Cyrus. He also enjoyed a successful career as an actor in “Doc” and “Still The King,” as well as the Disney series “Hannah Montana” with his daughter Miley. Recently, Cyrus has shattered records with Lil Nas X with the global smash, “Old Town Road,” which has remained No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 19 consecutive weeks. Returning to his Kentucky roots, BBR Music Group/BMG released Cyrus’s new single on July 19 with emerging artist Johnny McGuire titled, “Chevys and Fords,” which Rolling Stone Country proclaimed is “a gently rocking country tune brimming with Springsteen-inspired, vehicle-based nostalgia…finds the two vocalists singing about how they come from a long line of Chevys and Fords.’“ facebook.com/BillyRayCyrus twitter.com/billyraycyrus instagram.com/billyraycyrus

A.S.K. AND UNLOCK THE SECRETS: FEW SPIRITS, SEATTLE GRUNGE LEGENDS ALICE IN CHAINS COLLABORATE ON ALL SECRETS KNOWN, 101-PROOF BOURBON FINISHED IN TEQUILA BARRELS
“For us distilling, like making music, is about having the courage to ASK, ‘What if we…’ and being excited to find the answers – unlocking those secrets.” – Paul Hletko, Master Distiller, FEW Spirits
FEW Spirits and Warner Music Artist Services announce today the release of All Secrets Known, a new, limited-release bourbon distilled by FEW Spirits Master Distiller Paul Hletko in collaboration with Grammy-nominated and multi-platinum selling Seattle Grunge pioneers Alice In Chains, whose music has stood the test of time and influenced a generation. Bottles feature a custom-designed label by artist Justin Helton.
The Whiskey All Secrets Known (SRP: $75/750 ml), a nod to the name of the opening track of Alice In Chains’ 2009 certified Gold release Black Gives Way To Blue, is FEW Bourbon finished for six months in tequila barrels and bottled at the most rock and roll of proofs, 101 (50.5% ABV). Bold, sweet, and spicy bourbon top notes that have become the hallmark of FEW and led to multiple category awards, are accentuated by grassy agave undertones.
Said Hletko, “There are no two spirits that have a closer association with rock and roll than whiskey and tequila. Bringing together elements of both, but in an unconventional, innovative way, is an illustration of what we try to do every time we distill a new product.”
The Collaboration “Alice In Chains is part of one of very few movements that can be legitimately credited with shapeshifting an entire culture, beginning with their first album, Facelift,” continues Hletko. “For us distilling, like making music, is about having the courage to ASK, ‘What if we…’ and being excited to find the answers – unlocking those secrets. Nobody sounds like Alice In Chains. We were inspired by their courage to create a sound that flouted convention and thought, ‘There are lots of tequilas finished in bourbon barrels, but it’s rare to find a widely-available bourbon finished in tequila barrels. Let’s do that instead’.”
Added Matt Young, EVP of Warner Music Artist Services, “Our team always seeks out the best in the business when it comes to our artist product collaborations. FEW Spirits was a no brainer when the idea first came up to create an Alice In Chains Bourbon Whiskey.”
The Label Design Artist Justin Helton, of Status Serigraph, is no stranger to working with musical giants like Phish, The Avett Brothers, My Morning Jacket, Ween, and The Black Keys created the custom label.
“I’ve been a fan of Alice In Chains forever with Jar of Flies being one of the first CD’s I ever owned,” says Helton. “‘I Stay Away’ and ‘No Excuses’ were on repeat in my room. For this design I found inspiration in the name All Secrets Known. The eye in the mouth is a play on seeing all that’s been spoken. The color scheme is a nod to Black Gives Way to Blue, the album on which the song ‘All Secret Known’ appears.”
Helton designed the label in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, also using a mix of hand-rendered illustrations with imagery from the 1800’s to create a distinct look.
A Legacy of Rock and Roll Partnerships All Secrets Known is yet another foray for FEW Spirits into partnerships with internationally-renowned music acts. In 2006, Hletko partnered with The Flaming Lips to create Brainville Rye Whiskey.
“Brainville led to access,” Hletko said. “Doors started opening and I’ve always felt like when you get a chance to work with cool people you admire, you’ve got to at least check it out. As a long-time fan of Alice In Chains and someone who has at various points made his living as a guitar player, the opportunity to work with someone like Jerry Cantrell, whose sound is unlike any other, was one we were determined to see through come hell or high water.
Limited-release All Secrets Known will be available in CA, CO, IL, NY, and WA and for purchase online through ReserveBar.com.
About FEW Spirits A grain-to-glass distillery since 2011, FEW Spirits produces award–winning craft whiskey and gin in a tucked away alley located in the growing Chicago suburb of Evanston, IL.. A historical town where Prohibition lasted until 1972, Founder & Master Distiller Paul Hletko changed the future of Evanston when he opened FEW Spirits Distillery, the first (legal) alcohol-production facility of any kind to ever open there.
Paul Hletko always knew he wanted to make craft spirits —produced in the local Chicago area—that offered something different, delicious and fun. Living in Evanston, a town that was prime for change after being dry for four decades post the repeal of prohibition, Paul felt it was the perfect home and backdrop for FEW and the brand. Deeply integrated into the brand story, both Evanston and Chicago are crucial elements of the FEW DNA and its inspiration. From its liquid, created from locally grown or sourced ingredients, to the look & feel of the design, which pays homage to the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago— FEW is the true definition of a local Illinois craft spirit.
FEW Spirits features a refreshing and innovative portfolio including a stable of core spirits and several small batch limited edition specialty expressions. Each flagship spirit is a new take on the timeless liquors of the past; distilled from the very best grains, aged to perfection, and bottled under the FEW roof. The small batch limited editions hold true to the premium quality FEW drinkers have to come to love and expect from the brand, but offer something novel to the oft-ordinary taste and style we’ve all grown accustomed to.
In a world over saturated with mass-produced spirits, only few remain truly handcrafted, locally sourced and small-batched. FEW has never strayed from this—even as it grows, Paul and his team continue to provide consistently impeccable spirits that are true to their craft roots and reminiscent of their home base.
About Alice In Chains Seminal rock band ALICE IN CHAINS recently toured in support of RAINIER FOG, which hit No. 1 across Billboard’s Rock, Alternative and Hard Music Charts and No. 1 on the iTunes Rock Album Chart and earned them a Grammy nom for “Best Rock Album.” Over the course of their remarkable career, ALICE IN CHAINS (vocalist/guitarist Jerry Cantrell, drummer Sean Kinney, bassist Mike Inez and vocalist/guitarist William DuVall) have garnered multiple Grammy nominations, sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, and amassed a diehard international fanbase whose members number in the millions.
Their discography features some of the biggest and most important albums in rock history, including 1992’s quadruple-platinum-certified “DIRT,” 1994’s triple-platinum-certified EP JAR OF FLIES, which was the first EP in music history to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and 1995’s self-titled double-platinum-certified ALICE IN CHAINS, which also entered the Billboard Top 200 at No. 1. They returned in grand style in 2009 with the critically acclaimed BLACK GIVES WAY TO BLUE, which hit No. 1 across the rock and alternative charts, earned a Grammy nomination, was certified Gold and hailed by Vice as “a record that’s as powerful as anything the band has done.” ALICE IN CHAINS remains one of the most successful and influential American rock bands of all time.

“East delves deep into the pits of his newfound fame and unearths every crevice of fear that often once wore him down. Instead of being entangled by his demons, he’s embracing his paranoia head-on and is rattling off fiery bars in the process.” – Billboard (Oct 4, 2019 – New York, NY) Meteoric Harlem rapper, model and actor Dave East, who is currently earning critical acclaim for his starring role as Method Man in HULU’s new mini-series Wu-Tang: An American Saga, today announces the release of his debut album, Survival, on November 8 – watch trailer HERE.

Dave East’s Def Jam/Mass Appeal saga took off in August 2017 with the release of his lauded mixtape, Paranoia: A True Story. The 13-track mixtape gained traction behind Dave’s Def Jam debut single “Perfect” featuring Chris Brown, whose VIDEO boasts more than 40 million combined YouTube views of to date.
ABOUT DAVE EAST: Praised for his lyricism and raw storytelling, and blessed with a loyal New York following, Dave East is one of the most promising rappers on the scene today. Born and raised in Harlem, he was inspired by older generation East Coast rappers ranging from Notorious B.I.G. to Styles P, Jadakiss, Cam’ron, and Big Pun. After a college basketball stint, Dave’s attention gravitated full time to music. Starting in 2010, he released an array of critically acclaimed mixtapes that earned him widespread recognition in the hip-hop community. His seventhmixtape, 2014’s Black Rose caught Nas by surprise, and resulted in Dave’s signing to Nas’ Mass Appeal imprint. Subsequent mixtapes Hate Me Now (2015) and Kairi Chanel (2016, named for Dave’s daughter), boasted a collective guest list topped by Nas, Styles P, Pusha T, Jadakiss, 2 Chainz, Fabolous, Cam’ron, Beanie Sigel, Rico Love, and The Game, to name just a few. Kairi Chanel led off with the storytelling visual for “Keisha” followed by “Type Of Time”, with over 12 million combined YouTube views to date. After nabbing a spot in the notorious XXL Freshman Class of 2016, Dave arrived on the Def Jam roster late that year. He was first heard on “Gold Digger” featuring A-Boogie, from Def Jam’s Direct Deposit Vol. 2 compilation (February 2017).
Paranoia: A True Story marked Dave’s official Def Jam debut EP in August 2017 (with “Perfect” featuring Chris Brown). The Paranoia 2 mixtape followed in January 2018. It was supported by a 10-minute short film, “The Hated,” a gritty drama centering on two childhood friends who get caught up in the street hustle that eventually lands one of them in the Rikers Island lockup. Dave’s profile was amped considerably on his 23-city cross-country “Paranoia 2 Tour” of the U.S. in January-February 2018. He then jumped into the ring for Beloved( October 2018), a mixtape collabo with invincible Yonkers MC Styles P. The project spun off a single, “We Got Everything,” whose video starring both MCs.
