ELLE Canada September Issue

ELLE Canada’s September 2018 issue features Tracee Ellis Ross as our cover star in a high-fashion photo shoot inspired by the best of the fall 2018 runways. In a playful and politically charged interview, Ellis Ross—who was recently nominated for an Emmy for her role on hit sitcom Black-ish—opens up about her love of fashion, growing up with Diana Ross, what she does with her downtime (including her secret to the best salads) and how she really feels about aging.

“I don’t want to feel like I’m hostage to an Instagram version of myself. My belief is that all these lines on my face and neck and the softness in my legs and my body are evidence of a life lived.”

Other issue highlights:

• Trend Report: Every trend we’re obsessed with this fall.

• ELLE Guide: How to create and define your own signature style.

• Feature: Are you being financially unfaithful to your partner?

The September issue of ELLE Canada, featuring Tracee Ellis Ross, hits newsstands on August 6, 2018.

TROYE SIVAN PAIRS WITH ARIANA GRANDE

Troye Sivan released “Dance To This” featuring Ariana Grande – a track from his forthcoming album, Bloom. The song is today’s Apple World Record. Listen for Zane Lowe’s interview with Troye on Beats 1 today at 10:00 AM PT. Download/stream “Dance To This” HERE and view the visualizer HERE.

Sivan said, “‘Dance To This’ is about that moment when you feel like you’ve been to enough house parties or events, and staying home and like, making out in the kitchen and cooking dinner sounds like a much, much better alternative.”

Bloom, which will be released by Capitol Records on August 31, is now available for pre-order everywhere. Fans who pre-order the digital album will instantly receive “Dance To This” plus the singles “Bloom” and “My My My!”

USA Today said, “One of the most intriguing young talents of his generation is Troye Sivan, whose track My My My! is one of 2018’s best singles.” Naming it one of the Best Songs of 2018 (So Far), Billboard noted that while Troye’s earlier singles “suggested a teenage artist prepping for the leap to greatness…‘My My My!’ evidences an adult who’s already there, brimming with confidence from the first chopped-up synth moan.” Combined global streams of “My My My!” are approaching 200 million. Views of the official video have surpassed 30 million.

NYLON said, “It’s Troye Sivan’s year. If this past January’s ‘My My My!’ single cemented him as a budding gay icon, his latest release, ‘Bloom,’ is his grand flowering.” #Bloom was the #1 worldwide trend on Twitter the night of the track’s release. Rolling Stone praised the “glamorous, gender-bending video,” which can be seen HERE.

Tickets for The Bloom Tour are on sale now at LiveNation.com and TroyeSivan.com. Multiple dates are already sold out and a second show has been added in San Francisco. The North American headline run, which kicks off on September 21, will include Troye’s first-ever show at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall (October 9) and performances at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles (October 30) and The Masonic in San Francisco (November 1 and 2). See below for itinerary. All tickets for the North American dates will include a CD copy of Bloom.

Troye supported his 2015 debut album, Blue Neighbourhood (Capitol Records) with two sold-out North American tours. Blue Neighbourhood, which topped the iTunes charts in 66 countries, has sold more than 2.5 million adjusted albums worldwide and is certified Gold in the U.S. Streams across all platforms exceed 2.5 billion while video views have topped 500 million. The single “Youth” claimed the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hot Club Play chart and has been certified Platinum in the U.S. Troye has appeared on the covers of Rolling Stone, Out, V Magazine and, most recently, The New York Times’ Sunday Arts & Leisure section. His numerous awards include a Billboard Music Awards trophy and two GLAAD Media wins.

SOCIAL HOUSE RELEASE DEBUT SINGLE

anta Monica, California, June 8, 2018 – Social House, the Pittsburgh native musicians, writers and producers, release their debut single “Magic In The Hamptons Ft. Lil Yachty” today, June 8th, via all http://smarturl.it/MagicInTheHamptons.  Listen to “Magic In The Hamptons Ft. Lil YachtyHERE.

Signed to SB Projects/Interscope Records, a joint venture between Scooter Braun’s SB Projects and Interscope, Social House features creatives Michael “Mikey” Foster and Charles “Scootie” Anderson who have written and produced songs for prominent artists ranging from Ariana Grande to the recent Jennifer Lopez track “Dinero Ft. DJ Khaled & Cardi B.” Produced by Mikey and Scootie, “Magic In The Hamptons Ft. Lil Yachty” also features production by multi-platinum producer Tommy Brown.

When the duo first moved to Los Angeles, Mikey and Scootie spent weeks couch surfing, finding themselves among other scrappy yet determined artists, in a highly social and creative environment that became their fraternity, family, party spot, studio and home. During a session at home, Mikey and Scootie decided to, for the first time, create a track for themselves. In that moment, Social House was born.

Social House has produced songs that range from a dark, urban feel to more upbeat rhythmic-pop, with their creative lifestyle shining through the feel-good character of their music that explores the diverse influences in their innovative production style.

EBENEZER x COL3TRANE x STATS

Ebenezer releases visual for “Stats” featuring Col3trane, lifted from debut EP Bad Romantic. The video premiered earlier today via Complex UK, the video sees Ebenezer and Col3trane drenched in moody lighting weaving through secret corridors and London backdrops as the song unfolds.

 

Watch HERE.

 

“My good friend Dir.Lx and I had so much fun making this. Can’t wait for you to hear more of what’s to come,” speaks Ebenezer.

Bad Romantic grips you from first listen and is a project that warrants multiple playbacks, truly showcasing his own signature UK rap aesthetic. An ode to real romance, the EP jumps from energetic deeper trap sounds on tracks like “Till I Die” and “Catch Feelings” and transitions to slower vibes with more emotive tracks like “South of France” and “Nostalgia,” overall rounding this project off as a stunning first EP from Ebenezer.

In a few short years Ebenezer has worked with the likes of Rejjie SnowJeremihTy Dolla $ign and Craig David. With a string of successful tracks released last year such as “F**K IT,” “Survival” and “Cliché,” Ebenezer is carving his own unique path – one of emotionally tinged R&B with hints of trap, completely void of the usual pretence that’s flooded the genre. In a way, it could be described as conscious turn-up music, but without a holier than thou message. The project sets Ebenezer apart from everyone else, as someone from London with a story to tell.

Born in Homerton, Ebenezer spent most of his childhood at a cousin’s house in Hackney along with his brother and sister. While his mother was busy holding down three jobs, Ebenezer and his brother spent most of their free time listening to music, watching MTV Base and learning to produce.

POST MALONE x TY DOLLA $IGN

CHRIS STYLEZ “FALL FOR ME”

In an era where most indie artists are secretly funded by major labels, and music gets carefully selected by gatekeepers based on the least resistance, people are starving for a change. Rising artist Chris Stylez took a non-traditional path to success forcing people in the conventional music system to question how he pulled it off.

 

Canada-born, New York-based R&B artist Chris Stylez became something of a viral sensation summer of 2016 after his song “Who Is” amassed over 50 million loops on Vine and hit Spotify Viral Charts in more than 16 countries. However, it’s difficult to pin down Stylez as a child of internet culture. With a polished tone reminiscent of a Voodoo-era D’Angelo, and the legendary soul sensation Marvin Gaye, it’s clear that the music comes from an authentic place.

 

Blazing his path from Toronto artist to downtown New York fixture was the product of habitual traveling in search of inspiration. After spending time creating and collaborating in Atlanta and Los Angeles, in addition to touring his way through Europe’s underground music scene, Chris finally landed in NY. Upon meeting Chris in person, Ozy.com interviewer Jeff Vasishta wrote “he seems to know everybody.”

 

Stylez decided to self-fund his releases leading to an organic groundswell of interest. After sending his dancehall influenced single “Relapse” directly to club and mixshow DJs, the record began to chart in multiple cities on Shazam. That led to radio spins in US, Canada, and Australia with no label or radio promoter on board (a practically impossible feat).

 

“It’s soulful, and rebellious—this is me,” says the artist about his newest project ‘In Late, Out Very Early’. The sensuous, memorable songs explore Chris’ roots in Reggae, R&B, and Soul, yet are guided to new landscapes through deft hands in contemporary production by ANYRIOT. The tracks are in no way shy of their overt sexuality, yet are presented in such luscious and enticing restraint that the listener is left wanting more.

 

He collaborates regularly with artists and producers throughout the United States and Europe, while touring internationally, most recently an exclusive SoHo House Tour, performing live in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Toronto, and Berlin.
