Grammy® Award-nominated multiplatinum singer and songwriter JULIA MICHAELS has announced the release of INNER MONOLOGUE PART 2.
 
The second collection of songs will be available on June 28, 2019 via Republic Records.
 
MICHAELS revealed the news following last night’s 2019 CMT Music Awards where she won “Collaborative Video of the Year” for the country hit “Coming Home” which she co-wrote and features on with Keith Urban.
 
INNER MONOLOGUE PART 2 follows the successful surprise release of INNER MONOLOGUE PART I earlier this year.  Upon arrival, the EP notably debuted at #1 on both the iTunes Pop Albums Chart and #5 Overall iTunes Albums Chart. The collection also boasted standout collaborations on “Anxiety” featuring Selena Gomez and “What A Time” featuring Niall Horan. 
 
In addition to touring the U.S. with P!NK these last few months, MICHAELS also embarked on her first-ever headline tour. After a run of multiple sold out shows, she recently announced the second leg of THE INNER MONOLOGUE TOUR given the widespread fan demand.

Get ready to experience INNER MONOLOGUE PART 2 this summer.
 
GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer and songwriter Julia Michaels has transformed the pop music landscape not only from behind-the-scenes as one of the most in-demand songwriters, but in the spotlight as a solo artist as well. Her rapid rise can be attributed to identifiable honesty in every lyric, as exemplified in her triple-platinum selling debut single “Issues”.  In 2018, she garnered GRAMMY® Awards nominations in the categories of “Best New Artist” and “Song of the Year” for “Issues,” which amassed nearly 2 billion streams worldwide. Continuing that success, “Issues” notably became “the top-selling debut single by an artist in 2017,” and placed as the only solo female composition on Variety’s “30 Most Consumed Songs of 2017.”
 
As a songwriter, MICHAELS has co-written 21 titles that have charted on the Billboard Hot 100, eleven of which have hit the Top 40, including “Issues.”  Those songwriting credits include smashes like Justin Bieber’s “Sorry,” Selena Gomez’s “Good for You” [feat. A$AP Rocky] & “Hands To Myself,” and Hailee Steinfeld’s “Love Myself.”  She’s also written titles for Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani, Linkin Park, Ed Sheeran, John Legend, P!NK, Maroon 5, Jessie Ware, Janelle Monae, Keith Urban, Shawn Mendes and more.  The cumulative worldwide stream tally for songs she has co-written is 20 billion to date.  
 
Since her debut as a solo artist, MICHAELS has built an enviable touring resume, joining artists like Maroon 5, Keith Urban, Shawn Mendes, Niall Horan, and P!NK, around the globe.

Ross will present 12 additional performances of the radiant production at Encore Theater, June 5 – 15; and August 14-24.

Recently she released her latest album, The Medicine Show, released via Concord Records. The namesake of her tour, The Medicine Show deals with universal themes of renewal, reconciliation, reckoning, compassion and, most profoundly, healing. Through the songs she processed the deep fears and hurting she saw in the nation on collective and personal levels; “Shaking” about national anxiety, the unifying “Human Chain” about the hope for healing, and the rocking, anthemic “Love Will Live.” More highlights include the album-closer, “Last Hello” drawing on the incredible strengths and courage shown by the survivors of the Parkland school shootings, and the infectious “Wild and Lonely,” and “Faded By Design,” exploring themes of her past with a new perspective.

SHAGGY

GRAMMY-winning, certified diamond-selling music icon Shaggy kicks into high gear in anticipation of his new studio album Wah Gwaan?! – out next Friday, May 10 via The Cherrytree Music Company, Brooklyn Knights Entertainment and 300 Entertainment. Pre-order is available this Friday, May 3.

Today (May 2), Shaggy will debut the album’s latest single “You” featuring the 19-year-old Canadian singer-songwriter Alexander Stewart with a performance on The Late Late Show with James Corden on CBS. Next week, the duo will grace the stage of ABC’s Good Morning America on Wednesday, May 8 followed by performances on Live with Kelly and Ryan on Tuesday, May 14 and Strahan & Sara on Friday, May 17. Tune in to hear the song that Billboard calls an “irresistibly upbeat EDM/dancehall fusion.”

Wah Gwaan?! is Shaggy’s most personal album to date and an emblematic display of his rich sound influenced by all styles of music. He embodies his Jamaican roots on dancehall tracks like “Caribbean Way,” “Frenemy,” “Ketch Mi Up” and “Money Up” ft. Noah Powa. Shaggy balances the seductive energy of rising dancehall superstar Shenseea and GRAMMY-nominated R&B powerhouse vocalist Stacy Barthe on “Super Natural.” His musical worlds collide on “Body Good” ft. Nicky Jam, one of the biggest acts out of the urban Latino scene. Shaggy continues to spread his contagious joy on “Use Me” and “Makeup Sex” ft. Nyanda and reveals his introspective side on “Wrong Room,” an ode about his mother. The artist expands his global reach with the irresistible smash “You” ft. Alexander Stewart and “When She Loves Me” ft. Rayvon. Shaggy and Rayvon have a long hit-making history, spawning ‘90s & ‘00s mega anthems “In The Summertime,” “Angel” and “Big Up.” Shaggy also taps a diverse range of producers including the legendary dancehall brothers Tony CD Kelly and Dave Kelly, Martin Kierszenbaum (Sting, Lady Gaga), iLLWayno (Nicki Minaj, Nas, 2 Chainz), Kizzo and Costi Official. Wah Gwaan?! represents a robust musical journey by a musician/songwriter/entertainer/armed forces veteran that invites the listener in with vibrancy, urgency and hope. Most of all, it captures the Caribbean-forged, energy-infused, adventure-informed musical impulses of a one-of-kind original: Shaggy.

Shaggy will tour throughout the spring and summer. He will also join Sting for a series of shows spanning across the UK in late May performing songs off their recent GRAMMY winner for Best Reggae Album, entitled 44/876, as well as their own respective greatest hits, together.

Justin Love Drops New Single

Justin Love Drops New Single: Bad Mind

2nd Release of 2019 for the Grammy-nominated Songwriter

Stream Bad Mind on All Platforms HERE

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).

In 2015, MICHAELS transitioned from behind-the-scenes as a top songwriter for the likes of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez into a force in her own right. As a solo act, she forged an unbreakable bond with countless fans worldwide and skyrocketed to the forefront of pop. She received two 2018 GRAMMY® Award nominations in top categories such as “Best New Artist” and “Song of the Year” for her debut single “Issues” from the 2017 mini-album Nervous System. “Issues” went triple-platinum, crossed 1 billion global streams, achieved consumption of 10 million, emerged as “the top-selling debut single of 2017, and scored a spot as the only solo female contribution on Variety’s “30 Most Consumed Songs of 2017” list.

MICHAELS fired on all cylinders throughout 2018. Featuring on Clean Bandit’s “I Miss You, she notched her first Top 10 on the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart in addition to co-writing and lending her voice to Shawn Mendes’ “Like To Be You,” Lauv’s “There’s No Way, and Noah Kahan’s “Hurt Somebody. She also landed her first #1 at country radio with Keith Urban’s smash “Coming Home. Not to mention, she wrote for everyone from Janelle Monàe and P!nk to Christina Aguilera and Jesse Ware as the year went on. Meanwhile, her solo single “Jump” [feat. Trippie Redd] cracked 100 million streams as she hit the stage at Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! and the Today Show Summer Concert Series to perform it. Along the way, she toured with the likes of Maroon 5, Keith Urban, Shawn Mendes, and Niall Horan. Most importantly though, these experiences prepared her for INNER MONOLOGUE PART I as she developed not only creatively, but personally as well.

In addition to sharing their stories and advice, top songwriters will inspire by performing some of their most notable hits from the 2019 EXPO stage. Singer, songwriter, producer and musician Matthew Koma, known for collaborating with Zedd on the #1 EDM hits “Spectrum” and “Find You,” and for co-writing the #1, Grammy-winning and triple-platinum “Clarity,” will be on hand to perform from his impressive multi-genre catalogue. Koma, who has also worked with artists including Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson, Shania Twain and Bruce Springsteen, currently fronts his newly-formed West Coast band Winnetka Bowling League.

Oscar-winning songwriter, ASCAP Chairman of the Board and President Paul Williams will kick off the Annual ASCAP Membership Meeting. Additional panels will shine a spotlight on some of this year’s hottest areas for emerging music, from the Atlanta music scene to Latin music’s role in mainstream pop, to songwriting in video games. For the first of these, previously-announced EXPO panelist Don Cannon (2 Chainz, Lil Uzi Vert, Jeezy) will be joined by Atlanta music luminaries like 21 Savage manager Kei Henderson, Capitol Music Group’s Senior Vice President of Global Creative Amber Grimes and Tunde Balogun of LVRN, the multi-faceted team behind D.R.A.M., Raury and 6LACK.

Others added to the EXPO include “Music Business Toolbox” founder Bryan Calhoun.

The ASCAP “I Create Music” EXPO will take place May 2 – 4, 2019 at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles. It is the only music conference completely dedicated to music creation and what it takes to be a professional music creator today, attracting over 3,000 music creators for three days of panels, workshops, master classes, keynotes and one-on-one sessions with the industry’s top hitmakers. ASCAP EXPO panelists participate because they want to give back to the next generation, and the feeling of community and giving back is authentic, infectious and inspirational. Many who come to the EXPO walk away saying that it is a life-changing experience. ASCAP EXPO will be making many more panelist additions in the coming months.
