On behalf of Young Thug and I we will always commit to putting the arts at the front of our philanthropic efforts.” 

 

Young Thug defies categorization and is a true iconoclast. Emerging on Atlanta’s hip hop scene with his 2011 mixtape series, he launched into the mainstream with his knack for melodicism and unique vocal style. Thug’s highly anticipated new album So Much Fun was released earlier this fall. Thug was awarded with a 2019 Grammy for his work and songwriting on Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” – named Song of the Year. He recently earned his highest chart placement on the Billboard Hot 100 with his latest single “The London” ft. J. Cole & Travis Scott and produced by T-Minus. “The London” also earned a spot on Spotify’s 2019 Summer Song Predictions list. Thug was recently featured on Ed Sheeran’s song “Feels” on Sheeran’s collaboration album, No.6 Collaborations Project, as well as Post Malone’s new single “Goodbyes” and on Lil Nas X’s new remix of “Old Town Road (Remix)”. In addition to his music, Young Thug recently launched his fashion brand SPIDER which premiered during Wireless week in London earlier this year. Young Thug is currently on ‘The Justin Bieber Big’ Tour across North America with chart-topping rapper Machine Gun Kelly. The tour kicked off Monday, September 30th, in Toronto, CA and wraps on November 18th in Los Angeles, CA. To check out tour dates click HERE.

Of Monsters and Men announce new album Fever Dream

On May 7th, 2019 multiplatinum Icelandic quintet Of Monsters and Men announced their new album FEVER DREAM to be released on July 26th.

Pre-order FEVER DREAM here and check out albums first single “Alligator” here.

Additionally, the band announced the album with a series of limited edition vinyl available on their online store. Fans can purchase the first edition at www.ofmonstersandmenofficialmerch.com

Released just last week, “Alligator” has turned heads with NME praising it as having a “bombastic and driving sound” and Line of Best Fit calling it “undeniably catchy.” In addition “Alligator” was the #1 greatest gainer in Alternative and #1 most added in Triple A Radio receiving strong support from those who have been waiting for the band’s return.

On “Alligator” co-vocalist Nanna Bryndis Hilmarsdóttir has taken center stage on the song not only as the lead vocalist but also wrote the track as well. On the empowering anthem and what is coming next for the band, they noted, “We are so excited about Alligator, the first release from our upcoming album. The song very much speaks to the excitement and energy that we feel about being back. We can’t wait to share more music and see everyone again.”
FEVER DREAM was co-produced by Rich Costey (MUSE, Vampire Weekend, Chvrches) and is the band’s third studio album.

OF MONSTERS AND MEN went from the talk of Iceland to the top of the global conversation on their 2011 debut, My Head Is An Animal. Not only did the record go platinum, but it also produced an international smash in the form of “Little Talks. The breakthrough single earned a quintuple-platinum certification from the RIAA, made history as “the first song by an Icelandic band to cross 1 billion streams on Spotify, and landed the band performance on Saturday Night Live. The group appeared on official soundtracks for franchises such asThe Hunger Games, The Walking Dead, and Beat Bugs, to name a few. In addition to performing at festivals such as Coachella, Lollapalooza, Firefly, and beyond, they supported Florence + the Machine on a high-profile arena tour. In the midst of this rapid rise, 2015’s Beneath The Skin bowed in the Top 3 of the Billboard Top 200 and the band starred in an episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones in the same year.

Finally, in celebration of the new music, the band has confirmed the television debut performance of “Alligator” on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on (NBC) on May 15th.

Dinah Jane “Bottled Up” Music Video

Dinah Jane recently launched her debut single “Bottled Up” featuring Ty Dolla $ign and Marc E. Bassy on HITCO, and today, she shares the video for the up-tempo, bouncy R&B track. Watch HERE.

The “infectious hit”, according to Idolator, is making the climb up the Radio charts after being the most added song at Rhythmic Radio. “This specific record, I just wanted to come out with people actually vibing”, Dinah Jane explains. “I just wanted to take it to a party scene”. The feel-good vibe of the song is carried over into the video where the dance party heats up, indoors and outside.

Dinah Jane recently performed the track on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Rolling Stone noted, “Jane transformed the Tonight Show stage into a neon-lit club for her performance of the mid-tempo pop track, which includes a sly reference to Fifth Harmony’s massive hit, ‘Work From Home.’ Forbes chimed in and wrote, “’Bottled Up,’ is an infectious dance-pop jam that is sure to make Fifth Harmony fans happy… though it takes the sound to the next level…”

In recent months, in addition to logging many studio hours, Dinah Jane also shot a small role for the Netflix film, ‘The After Party’. And now, with this debut release, listeners everywhere will get to know Dinah Jane like never before as she unveils more music in 2018.

ALESSIA CARA PERFORMS AT THE EMA’s

Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter Alessia Cara has once again donned the symbolic, oversized suit she wore in the “Growing Pains” video, the “Trust My Lonely” video, as well as recent appearances on FallonColbert, and the Today Show for her performances at Austin City Limits and the MTV EMA Awards – where she took home the award for Best World Stage. Alessia told the Today crew: “It’s an artistic way of symbolizing the idea of growing up. Sometimes you kind of feel like you’re drowning and you feel like you’re not ready for the roles life throws at you so this was my way of symbolizing it in an artistic way.” Alessia took to her Twitter account to defend her choices for wearing the oversized suit after some online criticism and received support from Kehlani and Ariana Grande.
