New Release by Gabi Demartino

From recently making headlines by appearing in Ariana Grande’s viral “Thank U, Next” video to being a bonafide influencer with over 13.2M combined followers, Gabi Demartino will release her most personal song yet in time for Valentine’s Day. Her new single  Cold Room releasing February 14th, 2019, will allow her massive fan base to see her in a completely different light.

Gabi Speaking About the Meaning of “Cold Room”

“Cold Room” is a song I wrote 3 years ago while I was forming unfamiliar feelings for a friend. I knew it was more than a friend but never wanted to confront the situation because I was afraid the feelings weren’t mutual. I  never wanted to cross the line and ruin the friendship. I decided to release this song now, because it came on shuffle in my car while driving through a blizzard on the east coast. It is the most relatable, confident, upbeat love ballad that I have ever written and thought maybe it could help a few relationships blossom this Valentine’s Day. I want this track to help people in similar situations. Hopefully this song can send shivers down some spines and chill some veins. Pun- intended!

February 21, 2019 — (Santa Monica, CA) — The video for the recently released song from Yungblud & Halsey feat. Travis Barker – 11 Minutes (Locomotion / Geffen Records) is available HERE.

The video, directed by award-winning filmmaker Colin Tilley, explores the emotional stages of grief and loss to tell the story of 11 Minutes.  “We don’t realise how much we need something until it’s taken away from us,” says Yungblud.  “We are so distracted and focused on what’s next, we can fail to see what is actually in front of us.”

New Music from YUNGBLUD with Halsey feat. Travis Barker

By Katelynn Dunn

YUNGBLUD’s new single with Halsey and featuring musician (also former Blink-182 band member) Travis Barker is out now. The song titled 11 Minutes “tells the story of a perfect tragedy that reflects modern love within our society. We are so distracted and focused on what’s next, we can fail to see what is actually in front of us. We don’t realise how much we need something until it’s taken away from us,” says YUNGBLUD.

YUNGBLUD – 11 Minutes (with Halsey feat. Travis Barker)

Made with producer/songwriters Matt Schwartz (Cold War Kids, Kylie Minogue), Zakk Cervini (Good Charlotte, Mayday Parade) and Chris Greatti (Grimes, Black Veil Brides), the hypnotic track combines moody guitar work and high-powered drumming with Halsey and YUNGBLUD’s urgent vocal exchange to spin the story of a couple that sabotages their relationship before it’s really even begun by caving in to societal pressures.

With Halsey – the GRAMMY® Award-nominated, multi-Platinum singer/songwriter who recently topped Billboard‘s Hot 100 with her 2x Platinum hit “Without Me” – and GRAMMY® Award-nominated musician Travis Barker – who has sold millions of records with his bands blink-182, Transplants, +44, and solo work, and made Rolling Stone’s list of the greatest drummers of all time – YUNGBLUD found like-minded souls who shared his vision.

“Working with Halsey and Travis was a fucking dream – at the end of the day we’re all rock kids,” says YUNGBLUD. “We grew up with a mutual adoration for the genre so it completely makes sense that we would come together and try to modernise it.”

New EP by TJ Porter

HARLEM RAPPER TJ PORTER DROPS NEW EP “NO DISTURBANCE”

LISTEN HERE:
https://TJPorter.lnk.to/NoDisturbance

HE WILL BE FEATURED IN DEF JAM’S UNDISPUTED COMPILATION, OUT MARCH 8TH!

“NO DISTURBANCE” TRACK LIST:
1. I CAN’T
2. THE DON
3. HARDER THAN EVER (FEAT. JAY GWUAPO & KJ BALLA)
4. CHEATED

“TJ Porter is leading Harlem into the future.” 

“He cuts through beats with ease & takes an approach that most artist don’t.” 

“His rhymes, deft and sharp with Harlem’s natural proclivity for quick wit and bucket drummer cadences, are leavened by a singsong delivery that sounds modern, but anchored in a traditionalist’s slickness.”

ABOUT TJ PORTER:

You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take…but TJ Porter is shooting to win. The Harlem native is taking his prowess from the basketball court—hunger, drive and hard work—into hip-hop. “This is a mental game,” he says. “I want to be the best.”

Raised in the Robert F. Wagner Housing Projects, the 18-year-old (born Terrence Reaves) grew up on Nas, The Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur. “My uncle would say, ‘I want y’all to listen to this and by the end of the day, tell me what the songs mean.’” Mature for his age, he began rapping at eight and made his first song at 12. “As a kid, I was always chilling with the older guys in the hood. I would always be rapping.” His natural athleticism led him to want to pursue basketball professionally. For several years, music took a back seat to his hoop dreams.

In 2016, TJ’s career—and life—hit a turning point when his best friend, Chico, was fatally shot in a gang-related incident. He questioned his life in the streets and admits, that he was filled with anger. “I ain’t gonna lie. It changed my life.” Through tragedy sprung hope. He took on “We gon’ ball,” the mantra of his slain friend, and the moniker “TJ Porter,” a nod to the debonair Rich Porter from Paid in Full, and set his eyes on rap as the prize.

With the forthcoming Voice of The Trenches, TJ Porter is ready to tell his story. Autobiographical, he hopes to showcase the many facets of New York City—good and bad. He’s slated to hit the road later this year and release a trilogy of projects leading into NBA All -Star Weekend 2019. More than anything, TJ hopes that his success can serve as a motivation, especially to other young people. “I’mma give you the trenches,” he says. “But these are the opportunities you can get.”

Alfa Romeo Award Winning Car

Arguably one of the most desirable cars of all time, the remarkable 1937 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Berlinetta today was revealed at The Peninsula Paris hotel as the winner of the fourth annual The Peninsula Classics Best of the Best Award.

While eight stunning ‘Best of Show’ winners from top concours around the world competed for the accolade, the Alfa Romeo was the stand-out choice among the judges as the best car in the world. Hailing from Los Angeles, California, the car was entered into the running for the award after being named ‘Best of Show’ at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

“The winning Alfa Romeo is a perfect example of the type of car that inspired us to create this award,” said William E. (Chip) Connor, Chairman and CEO of William E. Connor & Associates Ltd, and co-founder of The Peninsula Classics Best of the Best Award. “To provide an opportunity for car lovers to pause a moment and celebrate flawless design and engineering of this calibre is truly an honour each year.”

The Alfa Romeo is owned by David and Ginny Sydorick of Los Angeles, California. Reflecting on the car’s recent recognition, David said: “As an avid auto-collector, having two cars in the running for this year’s award was truly remarkable. It goes without saying that Ginny and I are ecstatic at the result – a proud moment for us both.”

The winning car was unveiled using a ‘shutter-effect’, whereby individual slats turned in sync to reveal the Alfa Romeo standing proudly within a bespoke-designed, up-lit box.  Following the big reveal, guests at the party, including ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ ‘The Alienist,’ and Girl on a Train’ star Luke Evans, were further treated to a music set from notable DJ and On-Camera Personality, Hannah Bronfman, who was joined by husband, DJ and Entrepreneur, Brendan Fallis.

An automotive jewel engineered by Ingegner Vittorio Jano, the 8C 2900 was designed to compete in sports car races, specifically the Mille Miglia, which it won outright in 1935, 1936, 1937, 1938 and 1947. In racing trim, they dominated all the major competitions, and in road trim, they were the fastest grand touring cars.

Established in 1925 in Milan, Italian coachbuilder Carrozzeria Touring had first licensed Charles Weymann’s system of fabric-covered lightweight frames and then developed its own ‘Superleggera’ construction. Patented in 1936, the Superleggera system consists of a structural framework of small-diameter steel tubes that conform to an automobile body’s shape and are covered by thin alloy body panels that strengthen the framework. The winning vehicle, 412020, is the first of only five known Berlinettas built on the Lungo chassis and is the car that Touring refers to as the beginning of Superleggera.
