Calum Scott

In honor of National Coming Out Day, breakout U.K. artist, singer, and songwriter, Calum Scott premieres “A Coming Out Story” on Vevo. The poignant profile, is an incredibly personal look at how Calum found the courage to be honest about himself through music and discusses his emotional journey from childhood into adulthood to find his authentic self.

“I know that there are people young and old struggling with the same questions, and living with that relentless fear and heartbreak,” says Calum. “I make the music I do because I want to inspire the right kind of conversations. If one less kid can grow up without hiding who they are along the way or having to believe that who they love is something that will make them lonely, then everything I went through will be worth it.”

Calum showcases his soaring falsetto on his debut album Only Human out now on Capitol Records. Only Human hit #1 on iTunes in over 20 countries, sold over 1 million in adjusted album sales, and has amassed over 1 billion combined streams. Billboard said, “Scott’s stunningly pure voice is affecting enough in itself, but his lyrics on every one of the (album’s) tracks are vulnerable and raw.His hit single, You Are The Reason featuring three- time Grammy nominee and vocal powerhouse Leona Lewis, is already certified Gold and has over 750 million streams worldwide. Calum’s new track, “What I Miss Most” out now, unfolds as a triumphant homage to his hometown of Kingston upon Hull, located in Northern England. He will release his new single, “No Matter What” on October 19th.

Calum was nominated for a Brit Award for Best Single, for his version of Robyn’s Dancing On My Own, which became a global sensation with over 1 billion streams worldwide, and is now Platinum in five countries.

Damian Marley x Living It Up

DAMIAN MARLEY “LIVING IT UP” VISUAL AVAILABLE NOW EXCLUSIVELY ON TIDAL

Today, Damian “Jr Gong” Marley premiered the music video for his impassioned single “Living It Up” off his GRAMMY Award-winning fourth studio album, Stony Hill, exclusively on global music and entertainment platform, TIDAL.

 

In the visual, Marley takes his son back to his hometown in Jamaica to share the culture of where his father Bob Marley grew up and where reggae music was born, as well as the parallel between his upbringing and where he is now.

 

The video was directed by Gil Green, and filmed in Trenchtown, Stony Hill and Port Antonio, Jamaica.

 

“If I have to pick a single track that represents the theme of the album overall, I would say it is probably Living It Up, it represents my history. It comes down to where my father is coming from and where my mother is coming from, it’s not likely that people from these two worlds meet up like that on a regular basis and have children. That whole journey, I think is an inspiring story in itself” says Marley about the track.

 

Previously, the TIDAL artist-owner collaborated with the platform to debut the visuals for “Speak Life,” “Stony Hill to Addis” DocumentaryTIDAL X: High Times, a 4/20 celebration. “Medication“, “Nail Pon Cross” as well as performed during TIDAL’s annual charity concert in 2016, TIDAL X: 1020.

 

 

TIDAL’s commitment to connecting fans with their favorite musicians has spanned dozens of livestreams, thousands of ticket giveaways, and an extensive array of exclusive content – including: TIDAL X Brooklyn, the annual star studded benefit concert; TIDAL X livestreams from Chance the Rapper, Ty Dolla $ign, Alicia Keys and more; exclusive album premieres such as Beyonce’s LEMONADE and Rihanna’s ANTI; unique content including 21 Savage’s 30 Days with 21 Savage, Rick Ross‘ album annotations and more!
