5 Seconds Of Summer Honor Queen With Cover Of “Killer Queen”

In honor of the life and legacy of Freddie Mercury and Queen, and in celebration of the upcoming biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, multi-platinum band 5 Seconds Of Summer release a cover of Queen’s 1974 seminal hit, “Killer Queen” today at all digital providers.  Stream/Download “Killer Queen” HERE.

Says 5SOS, “Queen have been such a massive influence on us as a band.  Their unique harmonies, the fluidity to their songwriting and how they each used their own musicality to back each other up have always inspired us.  We chose to cover, ‘Killer Queen’ because we kept hearing it while writing our third album, Youngblood and were so enamored by the production and their early realization of the minimalist approach to the track.  For us, the exploration of individual vocalists in a band is incredibly important and Queen helped us to see the future of how we want to sing, in addition to how we play our instruments.  As a pioneer of individuality, Freddie taught us what it means to embrace the idea of truly being yourself and that’s a part of Queen that lives on in their music now, more than ever.”

The song, produced by Linus, follows singer-songwriter and musician, Shawn Mendes’ acoustic interpretation of the iconic 1981 No. 1 hit, “Under Pressure” and was recorded as the second installment in a series of three artist covers in support of the Mercury Phoenix Trust (MPT).  The MPT was founded in 1992 by Brian MayRoger Taylor and Jim Beach to support the global fight against HIV/AIDS. 5SOS, together with Universal Music Group (UMG) and Queen, will donate net profits of the track to the MPT.

“Everyone at the Mercury Phoenix Trust is thrilled that 5 Seconds of Summer have joined our global campaign fighting AIDS in celebration of the movie Bohemian Rhapsody. Thank you 5SOS for giving us such an impeccable version of Freddie’s classic Killer Queen,” said Queen’s manager, Jim Beach.

LIL YACHTY x COVER

Today Lil Yachty shares his cover art and a March 9, 2018, release date for Lil Boat 2.

Lil Yachty, aka Lil Boat, aka “King of the Youth” is a 20-year old Atlanta native, a Grammy-nominated singer, rapper, producer, creative designer, branding genius and fashion icon who smashed onto the scene two years ago with his debut mixtape Lil Boat. In May, 2017, he released Teenage Emotions which entered The Billboard Top 200 at #5 and remained on the charts more than four months. Since then he accumulated nearly 3 billion streams, found himself on the covers of Paper and FADER magazines, as well as landing the cover of The New York Times Men’s Style section and a XXL Freshman cover. Rolling Stone said his album “Teenage Emotions” was a “landmark moment that may change the way people rap”, while The New York Times Magazine dubbed him as an artist “that tell us where music is going”.

 

The New Yorker :

“It’s commonplace for young rap stars to claim that they’ve transcended hip-hop; it’s rarer for them to actually do it. Yachty does”.

 

Noisey :

“Besides the actual sun, there is no source of joy in the world right now brighter and more sustaining than Lil Yachty. So basically, the moral of the story is: cancel all your plans and stay at home, and instead just understand that the Goodest Night has now been had, by one Lil Boat, Esq. You will never have as good a night as Lil Yachty had Apologies”.

 

The New York Times  :

“Lil Yachty’s excellence doesn’t originate in his choice of words, or even in the rhythm, he delivers them & he has created an alternate universe in which traditional narratives of rap excess are reframed as fantastical stories. And on the whole, his songs are dreamlike and entrancing. Lil Yachty has created an alternate universe in which traditional narratives of rap excess are reframed as fantastical kiddie stories. He has mainlined Gucci Mane’s vocal quirk a penchant for odd rhyme structures cloaked in unlikely melodies and distended it to absurdist lengths”.

 

The Source :

“It’s something about Lil Yachty as an artist that makes purveyors want to rush towards him in complete and utter approval”.

 

Esquire :

“The sheer obvious joy that Yachty takes in making music is one of his best qualities, and its infectiousness is one of the main reasons why people are flocking to him the way they are. It’s beautiful to see someone so fully consumed by their passion, and inspiring to see an artist so confidently exploring his form”.

 

Rolling Stone :

“Lil Yachty is probably going to change the world ».

 

Complex :

“Yachty in his own unorthodox way has put hip-hop culture in a choke-hold. He doesn’t show any signs of relinquishing his grip.”

 

Vibe :

“You can’t deny the fact that he’s one of the most authentic rappers in the game ».

 

Pitchfork :

“Yachty is the master of our joy.”
