Monsta X Premiering FIRST English Single

 International K-Pop Sensations, Monsta X, continue their worldwide onslaught with the announcement of their first all English language release of their title track, “Shoot Out,” exclusively revealed by Billboard“Shoot Out” English version is set to drop THIS Friday November 9th at 6:00pm KST / 4:00am EST on all streaming platforms; with JoJo Wright of 102.7 KIIS FM exclusively premiering the single on Friday November 9th at 9:00AM Pacific. Monsta X have already made a huge impact in U.S. media with OC Weekly calling them “power players in the K-pop game,” Metro UK comparing their fandom to the likes of One Direction stating “…the Hammersmith Apollo on Sunday night looked like the intense sort of fan dedication not seen since One Direction were a thing,” and  PAPER Magazine stating “You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that Monsta X’s darkly textured but nonetheless high-energy music is the reason why they stand apart from other acts in the vibrant (and constantly expanding) K-pop scene.”

Monsta X is currently preparing to cause pandemonium stateside once again by making history as the first K-Pop group to perform at the iHeart Radio Jingle Ball, where they will be performing the English version of “Shoot Out” for the first time. The first of five dates will be kicking off in Los Angeles on Friday November 30th alongside household names such as Cardi B, Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, G-Eazy, Khalid, Normani, Dua Lipa, Alessia Cara, Calvin Harris, Bazzi and Bebe Rexha.

The Korean version of “Shoot Out” has already made a huge impact on both Korean and U.S. shores by picking up 4 consecutive #1 wins on the prestigious Korean TV Shows; M Countdown, Show Champion, SBS MTV’s “The Show,” and Music Bank.

Billboard noted “This week on the charts, “Shoot Out” climbs from No. 10 to No. 8 on Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales chart, marking the band’s ninth top 10 on the chart.” https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/k-town/8483568/monsta-x-shoot-out-english-version-radio-premiere?utm_source=twitter&utm_source=t.co&utm_medium=referral&utm_source=t.co&utm_medium=referral

The band are in the midst of making a huge impact on our shores with their 2nd Album Take.1, ‘Are You There?’ debuting on the Billboard World Albums chart at No. 7; marked the week of November 3rd. Not to mention their 47 week streak on the Billboard Social 50 Chart. Monsta X is causing a unstoppable wave of interest here with their 2nd Album and title track “Shoot Out”, with PAPER Magazine stating “Shoot Out” is niche enough to catch the ear of the most cynical music critic, and accessible enough, via the band’s perfectly synchronized harmonies, to appeal to the masses” and MTV describing it as“..a thundering beat, slick pop-rock chorus, and sensual visual.” Earmilk also added “Brimming with the grit and sensual rhythms that are core to the band’s musical style, “Shoot Out” is about the inescapability of fate and the importance of filling life with love.”

Marc E. Bassy Drops “Postmodern Depression”

Bay-area pop/R&B powerhouse Marc E. Bassy returns today with his new five-song EP, Postmodern Depression, which features lead single “Love Her Too” with fellow Bay-area rapper G-Eazy.

Of the song, Bassy says “‘Love Her Too’ was that end of the session jam that turned into a real song—it was me waking the guys up and convincing them this last jam of the day was something special.” He continues, “Postmodern Depression is me battling with culture. It’s about trying to grow up in a scene that glorifies the opposite of what it is to be a wholesome individual. It’s about me always coming back to music and being forever saved by songwriting.”

Singer, songwriter and producer Marc E. Bassy made waves with his critically acclaimed 2016 debut Groovy People EP. Among a tracklisting of hits such as “Morning” and “Dirty Water,” it vaulted “You & Me” [feat. G-Eazy] onto the Billboard Hot 100 as the track generated 260 million-plus Spotify streams and achieved a platinum certification from the RIAA within two years. Hot on its heels, he dropped his first full-length, Gossip Columns, and landed yet another smash in the form of “Plot Twist” featuring Kyle. In the album’s wake, he co-headlined the Bebe & Bassy Tour alongside Bebe Rexha and launched his Gossip Columns Tour, selling out venues coast to coast. Along the way, the artist received widespread praise from Billboard, Complex, Hypebeast, XXL, Hot New Hip Hop, The FADER, Spin and many more. Positioned for pop supremacy with his forthcoming second full-length set for 2019, Bassy’s rise to the top is just beginning.

STEFFLON DON ANNOUNCES BRAND NEW SINGLE SENSELESS

Last year, Stefflon Don went from strength-to-strength to cement her reputation as London’s most formidable young talent. From winning Best Female at the MOBO Awards to Best Newcomer at this year’s NME, the Clapton-raised star continued to defy expectations, managing to release both the gritty Skepta-featured track Ding-A-Ling as well as the anthemic dancehall of her debut single Hurtin’ Me (which saw the artist land her first top 10 single). Less than six months later and Stefflon Don has world domination in her sights; having recently covered both ES Magazine as well as the last ever issue of NME, gone platinum on Hurtin Me (1.5m singles sold), amassed a monstrous 225M worldwide streams. With recent collaborations with the likes of Future, Quavo, Big Sean, Halsey, Ne-Yo, Bebe Rexha, Jeremih, MC Fioti, Niska and Calvin Harris, there seems to be nowhere Stefflon Don can’t go.

Senseless builds and builds on what Stefflon Don fans love her for; insanely catchy pop hooks and her utterly unique Jamaican flow with a strong female point of view. The track is set to be inescapable this year and will no doubt catapult Stefflon Don even further into the global mainstream. This summer Stefflon Don will be joining G-Eazy on his upcoming UK tour as well as appearing at festivals across Europe, the UK and US including the Radio 1’s Biggest Weekend and Capital’s Summertime Ball.

While Bassy has been a much buzzed-about singer/songwriter since the release of 2016’s Groovy People EP, Gossip Columns further showcases Bassy’s recognizable crooning, amplifies his song-crafting capabilities and takes the listener on a themed-journey into his personal world. “I chose this album title because these tracks are essentially sensationalized stories from my personal life, experience and observation,” says Bassy. “I have always dug into these stories as sources for inspiration, and being based in the muck and mire of Los Angeles, a tabloid-ish picture is what I have painted within this album.” Catch Bassy reveal more about the songs on Gossip Coumns and air some of the new tracks this weekend on Beats 1’s Noisey Radio (Saturday at 9amEST/6amPST & Sunday 9pmEST/6pmPST).
