JON BELLION SHARES OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR “STUPID DEEP”
Single Is From His New Album, Glory Sound Prep
North American Headline Tour Kicks Off June 12
Today, Jon Bellion revealed the official video for his current single, “Stupid Deep.” The New York-based artist partnered with director Daniel Brown (ODESZA, Portugal. The Man) to weave a mythic tale of self-discovery that is set at sea. Bellion did all the visual effects himself. View “Stupid Deep” HERE.
Bellion will launch an extensive North American amphitheater tour on June 12 at The Met in Philadelphia. The summer headline run, produced by Live Nation, will include a July 12 concert at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre and an August 10 hometown show at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater on Long Island. See below for itinerary. Tickets are available here.
“Stupid Deep” is from Bellion’s new album, Glory Sound Prep (Capitol Records/Visionary Music Group), which includes collaborations with GRAMMY-winning producer Quincy Jones, Roc Marciano, RZA, B.Keyz and Travis Mendes. Billboard said, “Bellion seamlessly intertwines sounds of pop, R&B, hip-hop and rock through his electrifying songs.” AllMusic praised it as “Epic in scope” and noted, “Glory Sound Prep sees Jon Bellion again alternating effervescent dance-pop, melodic reflections, and more fractured, urgent hip-hop. This time, he draws on an even broader sound palette that incorporates synths, strings, horns and more.”
Glory Sound Prep is the follow-up to his RIAA Gold-certified 2016 debut album, The Human Condition, which has sold more than 1.5 million adjusted albums and amassed upwards of 1.7 billion cumulative streams. “All Time Low,” the lead single, was a Top 10 hit at Top 40 radio and is now certified 3x Platinum.
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. He co-wrote and co-produced Christina Aguilera’s 2018 single, “Fall in Line” featuring Demi Lovato.

British singer/songwriter Jamie N Commons releases the video for his latest single “Won’t Let Go” today. “Won’t Let Go” was written by Commons and produced by Sam De Jong and is available now at all digital retailers. Commons is currently in the midst of a tour opening for Jacob Banks (see remaining tour dates below).
Born in Bristol in the late 80s and following that with a stint in Chicago, Commons returned to England set on a music career studying at Goldsmiths in London, notorious for its host of luminary alumni. Commons released The Baron EP in 2011 followed by his KIDinaKORNER/Interscope debut Rumble And Sway EP in 2013 showcasing his whiskey-laced growl. Commons’ workmanlike approach has been fed further by the work he’s doing for others. Among his successes, he co-wrote the hit “Jungle” for X Ambassadors with Alex Da Kid and Sam Harris, and toured with the band. He also had a Beats by Dre ad, and was featured on Eminem‘s ‘MMLP2’ album. Commons won Music Week’s Sync Artist Of The Year in 2016. This past year Commons composed the music for the summer blockbuster “Skyscraper” starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. These experiences opened his ears to a spectrum of genres, making him more interested in the path pop music is taking.
Below is a list of remaining tour dates for Jamie N. Commons supporting Jacob Banks:

Eminem-signed, Compton-bred rapper Boogie has shared a new single and video titled “Silent Ride.” With the track released via Shady Records/Interscope Records, the video for “Silent Ride” is directed by Gina Gammell and Malcolm Washington for Vanishing Angle production company.
Check out “Silent Ride” by Boogie HERE.
Praised by Pitchfork as “one of the West Coast’s most promising young rappers,” Boogie has also announced a January 25th release date for his forthcoming album, Everything’s For Sale. The album marks his first full-length for Shady Records/Interscope Records.
Since making his debut for Shady Records/Interscope Records in December 2017, Boogie has released such acclaimed singles as “Self Destruction” and “Deja Vu.” Arriving last August, the latter was hailed by HotNewHipHop as a “smooth new offering” built on “lush basslines.”
Born Anthony Dixson, Boogie got his start in music after joining a church choir at the urging of his mother. He soon started writing lyrics and crafting melodies, and later enrolled in Long Beach City College to study recording. With his debut mixtape Thirst 48 arriving in June 2014, Boogie had his breakthrough with The Reach—a 2015 mixtape that spawned the Jahlil Beats-produced “Oh My,” whose viral success cemented him as one of the most refreshingly honest new voices emerging from the West Coast. Releasing Thirst 48 Pt. II in 2016, Boogie found his raw, unfiltered lyricism earning praise from artists like Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, and Eminem, who signed him to Shady Records in October 2017.
A lot can happen in the span of one minute.

The milestone release is a nod to his evolution as an artist as he is free to venture out with progressive unconventional sounds that pay tribute to the kind of tolerant community we’re all looking for…the one where we are accepted as we are.
“Café Bleu is an imaginary neighborhood spot where everyone is free to come hangout… nobody needs to know your name or your history and you can figure out your next moves in life without judgement. With this being my 10th solo project, I feel like I’m in a place where I am free to make choices without having to worry about the reactions of those choices. It’s a very liberating feeling. As an artist, I am now more open to exploring television, film, screenwriting and more.”
Today, also marks Dummie’s major motion picture debut in the Eminem produced and Joseph Kahn directed satirical film Bodied. Starring as a seasoned battle rapper named Prospek, Dummie coaches the outsider about the in-your-face rapid fire street battles. The film has already won the Toronto International Film Festival People’s Choice Award as well as Fantastic Fest’s 2017 Audience Awards. Bodied has been met with critical acclaim earning a 92% positive approval rating from Rotten Tomatoes and rave reviews from RobertEbert.com, LA Times, Slash Film, The Verge, Coming Soon, Joblo and The Globe and Mail.
