Justin Love has today unveiled a new song, Bad Mind, a moody R&B track and his second release of 2019. Bad Mind revolves around Love’s sensual vocals, channeling his affection and reflective attitude with sweet melodies over the dark and hazy production. The single takes an intuitive approach to ‘Bad Minds’ discussing a past relationship, and the tumultuous state he’s experienced through their endeavors. Never one to bite his tongue when it comes to expressing his feelings on wax, Love creates a sensible composition that fully embraces his vulnerability.

“My love wasn’t enough, so she decided to search for love elsewhere. She rather the night life.” – remarks Justin Love about Bad Mind

Justin Love was born and raised in New Jersey; with Puerto Rican, Cuban and Chinese roots. Having picked up a local buzz in his hometown, where he honed his performance skills by singing to onlookers at his local mall, Love has developed a rabid following since his early busking days as an adolescent. Love has since earned a Grammy nomination for a songwriting credit on H.E.R.’s smash hit Focus and has amassed millions of streams as an artist in his own right. He’s been lauded by industry heavyweights like Nicki Minaj, Alicia Keys and Jermaine Dupri, propelling Love into the top tier of emerging artists to watch in 2019.

Bad Mind is one of a string of singles that Love plans to release over the coming months, gearing up for a big year ahead. Check out the music video for his previous single – Runaway.

Bad Mind was produced by Source (who has also produced for Fetty Wap, NBA Youngboy, Kirko Bangz among others).

Rising star, Lilimar, is the embodiment of class and style. She is a young, energetic and gorgeous Latina – born in Venezuela to Cuban parents – and is the accumulation of everything Young Hollywood strives to be. She is best known for her series regular role on the Nickelodeon series “Bella & The Bulldogs,” but can now be seen starring in the networks popular new series: “Knight Squad,” which returns for season 2 in early 2019. Lilimar stars as the lead role of “Sage” a very interesting witch, that is full or fire and fury (but in a good way!). “Knight Squad is set at a magical school for knights in training, where two mismatched students form an unlikely alliance to protect each other’s secret and pursue their dreams,” according to a Nickelodeon show description.

Off-screen, Lilimar has used her strong social presence to set empowering, self-love social initiatives like #FreshFaceFriday and #StarGazeSaturday; with the goal of lifting up her followers and encouraging them to embrace their unique beauty and individuality.

I was really excited to start both of these on my socials, because I just love connecting with my stargazers (my supporters). I’m so incredibly grateful for every ounce of love & support they show as it always keeps me so positive and happy so I wanted to do something that shows that I support THEM just as much.” – Lilimar

The goal is to encourage young people to break boundaries and not be afraid to show the world who they really are beneath the make-up, the clothes, and fake images we try to portray online. We live in a world where we’re forcing ourselves to achieve perfection through photos instead of embracing our true natural beautiful selves. Connecting directly with her fans on these topics, Lilimar discusses issues that teens think about today like peer pressure, family, owning your individual power, societal norms in the modern age.

Her messages of truth and self-love are the reason why she’s poised to be America’s newest sweetheart.

Halston dare, 360 MAGAZINE

Halston Dare

Singer-songwriter and popular online content creator, Halston Dare drops new single Something Special today.

Halston Dare is not your average pop star. Growing up in a musical family to a Cuban American, immigrant father, Halston grew up with music in her blood. As a child, she grew up listening to classic 70’s, 80’s and 90’s music from the likes of Patti Labelle, Phil Collins, Bryan Adams, Donna Summer and Whitney Houston. As one of the brightest young voices in both the musical and digital influencer space, Halston is used to wearing many hats. “I want to be known as the girl who does it all. Music, fashion, make-up, sports. I want people to know that I’m a real person.”

Halston’s creative savvy and relatable personality has helped her amass a following of over 150,000 fans on instagram.

Halston started sharing covers of her favorite songs on Youtube a few years ago. She then branched out into the world of makeup, beauty and lifestyle. Her fanbase grew rapidly and when she finally released her single “Drowned Love”, it was received to much fanfare. Her fans instantly connected to the raw emotion and personal narrative. Over the years, Halston has fostered a uniquely deep and personal relationship with her fans. “Lots of fans I’m actually friends with. I rely on them as much as they rely on me. Let’s be friends, tell me about your day. Tell me about your problems.”

More About Halston:

Unlike many young musicians, Halston did not wait to get discovered. By age 11, the plucky and vivacious curly-haired preteen was googling agencies and managers and setting up her own meetings. That year, she heard an advertisement calling for aspiring young singers and Halston jumped at the opportunity. She begged her parents to attend the audition and because they saw her passion and dedication, allowed her to go. She attended the audition and the agency ended up flying her to Orlando, where she sang Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing” in front of 5,000 people. That’s when Halston and her family realized the stage was Halston’s home.

She then picked up piano and started vocal lessons. It was actually her first vocal coach who introduced Halston to song writers and producers and helped hone her talents. She started writing original music that she felt compelled to make. She says her lyrical inspirations come from a mix of real life and fantasy. “I love writing based on fairytales and stories I make up in my head. I love sharing my hopes, fantasies and daydreams.” Recently, Halston has been taking a much more personal approach to songwriting, writing about personal situations and real life events. Her new single “Something Special”, details a real-life situation about infatuation, dealing with ego and the misadventures of youth.

Aside from music, Halston is passionate about global issues like environmentalism, animal rights and female empowerment. Halston’s message has always been about empowering young women and making them feel important, beautiful and valued from the inside out. “In today’s Instagram world, we’re always comparing ourselves to these fake, filtered photos and that’s not really realistic. That’s just what people want them to see.” She says. “I want young girls to know that they’re beautiful the way they are and that they don’t have to look like an Instagram photo to be enough.”

For the future, Halston is excited to keep performing, making original music and connecting even deeper with her fans and followers. As Halston looks ahead she advises her followers to chase their dreams and follow their hearts, “If you want to sing, SING! Reflect you, show everyone how you can be the best you can be. If someone tells you, you can’t. Don’t listen to them. The only person who can stop you is you.”

A. N. Other Fragrance offers luxury scents at affordable prices

Miami, FL – December 27th, 2017: Four of the perfume industry’s most coveted artists have united to unveil a luxury portfolio of limited edition fragrances that is redefining the value proposition of the perfume business by offering a superior quality collection at an affordable price.

 A. N. OTHER is a newly launched signature fragrance line for men and women, conceived by Gilad Amozeg and Ariella Appelbaum based in Miami. The husband and wife company founders considered the decades-old traditional approach by the leading perfume conglomerates to be stagnant and withering, and therefore set out to challenge the conventional wisdom of today’s fragrance industry by carefully crafting a luxury brand with a new story for today’s millennial.

 A. N. OTHER is developed by a handpicked group of world-renowned perfumers, whose excellence has been harnessed to create a line that reflects their own unique character and personality. Each individual was given a blank canvas and unlimited budget to curate their own signature scent that is uncompromising in quality, using the very best ethically sourced raw ingredients and materials from Gold Standard certified manufacturers. The result is a gender-neutral Parfum grade portfolio of four unique fragrances that pays tribute to creative freedom – each capturing a moment in time – encouraging the wearer to write their own personal story through memories the A. N. OTHER scents bestow.

The esteemed group of perfumers assembled for the startup venture, considered to be the first of its kind and unprecedented for the fragrance industry, include David Apel – creator of Bond no. 9 Wall Street and Tom Ford Black Orchid; Nathalie Benareau – creator of Phlur Hanami and Olmsted & Vaux; Carlos Viñals – creator of Christian Dior Higher Energy and Patricia Bilodeau – creator of Jo Malone Red Roses. The A. N. OTHER debut collection of limited edition fragrances for 2018 is now available to order online at www.an-other.com and comprise of four core scents – WoodyOrientalFloral and Fresh. Each signature perfume is priced at $80 for 100 ML and $50 for 50 ML.

 Fragrance is an emotional product and our goal is to connect with our customers on the deepest emotional level, touching upon values, lifestyle and events that are close to them,” says Gilad Amozeg, co-founder of A. N. OTHER. “Scent can unlock memories and transport us back in time. We like to think of our portfolio of fragrances as “placeholders” that capture youth, optimism, vibrancy, and energy. Our signature line abolishes the norms of today’s perfume industry by ensuring optimum quality in both product manufacturing and package presentation through our chosen suppliers based in Florida. Our Best In Class standard of service excellence will never outsource production to Asia like most manufacturers. Instead, we insist on going the extra mile for the customer with double the expenditure for our line to be made in the USA, without passing this added cost on to the consumer. We are resolute in offering an uncompromising portfolio at an affordable price that focuses on sustainability and ethically sourced raw ingredients and materials. Each fragrance in our collection reflects an extravagance that would typically carry an exorbitant price tag. Our moral compass has given us the guidance to strip away the unnecessary expense for licensing, distribution and celebrity endorsements, allowing us to produce a world-class product that can be sold for less.”

“A. N. OTHER” reflects the brand essence of the newly formed collection – a placeholder or pseudonym used by an identity, person or contributor wishing to remain anonymous – as a name that is yet to be decided. The brand identity allows for the portfolio to evolve each year, introducing a series of newly formed scents created by a new group of revered perfumers, each with a different story to tell.

While committed to supporting local businesses, A. N. OTHER is manufactured in South Florida and is dedicated to the sustainable use of biological resources. From the envelopes and packaging, through to the fragrance ingredients, bottles and caps – all elements of production are focused on sustainability and ethically sourced raw ingredients and materials that make a positive impact on the livelihood of local growers and communities. The A. N. OTHER partners and suppliers have each been recognized for exemplary sustainability management and are signatories to the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity.

The award-winning American perfumer, David Apel, is the creator of Oriental 2018. A dreamy blend of the exotic and the familiar, this exceptional fragrance with a driftwood base uses a rare cannabis accord to accentuate mystical incense notes. Sweet citrus, coffee aromas and edible notes of chocolate and bakery come alive on the skin as the fragrance dries.

French born, Patricia Bilodeau, is the creator of Woody 2018. Developed to fully harness the power of the olfactory senses, this perfume utilizes the tranquil and nourishing qualities of sandalwood to enhance concentration and awaken intuition. An infusion of lush, effervescent pear at the top, adds a distinct uplifting quality and an unmistakably modern appeal.

Cuban—American, Carlos Viñals, is the creator of Fresh 2018. Drawing inspiration from the resurgence of classic gin cocktails, aldehydic top notes shake this clean blend of crisp juniper and Madagascan ginger, alive with a freshness that fizzes and excites the senses. Metallic musk unifies a perfectly mixed blend, enhancing each note and completing the composition.

French born, Nathalie Benareau, is the creator of Floral 2018. This complex, yet playful exploration of light and dark textures brings a modern twist to classic perfumery notes. A rich base of sumptuous dark leather is punctuated by the elegance of night blooming jasmine. Nostalgic notes of sweet cotton candy and herbal mate add a contemporary lightness to the fragrance.

The collective portfolio of A. N. OTHER has resulted in a fragrance line that is pure and authentic, with an investment into the product and formula always remaining of paramount importance for the perfumers and founders. The customer is equally positioned as a priority within this brand philosophy, and is invited to tell the first chapter of a story yet to be told through their own fragrance journey. The Direct-to-Consumer digital shopping experience adopted by A. N. OTHER speaks to today’s millennial, recognizing how online purchasing and shipping efficiency has become the fabric of today’s youth market.
