Saweetie “Pissed” Music Video

Today at 12p PST, Saweetie unveils the music video for her red-hot new single “Pissed” (produced by Cronkite). Watch it HERE.

Get “Pissed” HERE via ICY/Artistry Records/Warner Bros. Records

Developing a reputation for larger-than-life visuals, hip-hop’s hottest new leading lady once again delivers a big screen-worthy clip. Saweetie spares no detractors with one razor sharp rhyme after another as she wilds out on-screen, displaying the stunning and sexy confidence that squarely positioned her as 2018’s fastest rising star.

Expect her to make history in the new year!

“Pissed” followed up her London On Da Track collaboration, “Up Now” [feat. G-Eazy & Rich The Kid]. Meanwhile, it earned looks from Complex, Rap-Up, and more. Saweetie never stops making headlines. She recently made her major tour debut with Drake and Migos. In addition, she lent her lyrical flow to remixes for pop superstar Dua Lipa’s “IDGAF” and Anne Marie’s global hit “2002.”

Flaunting nineties rhyme reverence, fashion-forward fire, and endless charisma, SAWEETIE—born Diamonté Harper—can go bar-for-bar with the best of ‘em, and fans and critics immediately recognized and responded to that. Within six months, she cracked 400 million cumulative streams, garnered a gold plaque, and earned the praise of Billboard, Fader, and Noisey as Los Angeles Times pegged her as “one to watch this year.” Drawing on a passion for poetry and numerous years of rapping in the car, she turned her love for words into vivid verses during 2018 on the High Maintenance EP.

Born in Santa Clara of African-American and Chinese-Filipino descent and raised in Sacramento, the California native went from MVP status as a high school volleyball champ to becoming a shining student at USC. Initially, she deferred her rap dreams to achieve a degree in Communications before being discovered at a Downtown Los Angeles Puma event by current manager Max Gousse [Beyoncé, YG, Ty Dolla $ign]. At Artistry Studios, they produced her 2017 knockout viral smash “ICY GRL.” Driven by a bulletproof flow and one clever line after another, it racked up 300 million combined streams between the original and Kehlani remix, achieved a gold certification from the RIAA, and soared to #1 on Musical.ly. She also earned the early endorsement of gatekeepers such as Vibe, XXL, HipHopDX, and MTV. Touting a new partnership with Warner Bros. Records and Artistry Records for her label Icy, she’s rewriting the rule book and breaking the stereotype of the female emcee. Armed with tracks like “B.A.N.” and “Good Good,” High Maintenance features production courtesy of Zaytoven, Hassan, Saweetie, Cash Money AP, and Gousse.

Jordan Hollywood Releases The Video for “Finally”

Just recently, the 25-year old rapper-singer-songwriter and Broward Country native Jordan Hollywood releases his music video for “Finally,” which is the title track off his Quality Music Control Music debut EP FINALLY.

Watch the video HERE and listen to the EP HERE

In “Finally,” Jordan continues his trend of having cinematic visuals working with his longtime video director Christian Breslauer. The opening scene finds him in the center of a storm. This symbolizes Jordan’s feelings about people who betrayed him. He was hurt but instead of dwelling he channels that energy into hustling harder. The final scene displays half the room waking up from a slumber, which symbolizes people are finally starting to notice Jordan Hollywood.

“Finally” has so many different emotions for me. These built up emotions turned me into a new person. People counted me out. People turned their backs on me. People have been sleeping on me my whole career. Now people are finally waking up,” said Jordan on the video.

Jordan also recently released the music videos for “Leave Me” and “Let Me Find Out” which features Lil Baby. The video gained over a million views within a week of its release and now clocks over 7.5 million views. “Let Me Find Out” is also impacting airwaves as the second most added song at urban radio.

Jordan has been in the game as a co-writer for French Montana, Jason Derulo, and more. He spent time ghost writing for different rappers. Jordan has been releasing music since 2011 as a teenager and has collaborated with Yo Gotti, Lil Baby, Ronny J, Tory Lanez, Lil Durk, Hitmaka, and longtime producers SkipOnDaBeat (G-Eazy, Kodak Black) and platinum record making producer Smash David (Big Sean, Khalid, Chris Brown). Jordan comes from the diverse Broward County, the same area that spawned a slew of rappers from Kodak Black, Smokepurpp, Lil Pump and the late XXXTENTACION.

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.
