Nav and Travis Scott Release Music Video For “Champion”

Today platinum-certified Toronto rapper and producer NAV shares the music video for “Champion” feat. Travis Scott. Watch it HERE. The song is the latest single from his full-length debut album, Reckless [XO/Republic Records]. Get it HERE.

Taking over an oceanside estate, NAV filmed the video in Hawaii during the top secret sessions for Scott’s new album, ASTROWORLD, on which he’s also featured. Directed by XO’s very own Amir “Cash XO” Esmailian, the video co-stars Atlanta rapper Gunna, rising star Sheck Wes as well as Don Toliver, the latest artist to join Scott’s Cactus Jack Records.

NAV’s quiet infiltration of pop culture continues with “Champion.” It follows up the success of a string of now RIAA-certified platinum hits, including “Myself,”“Some Way” [feat. The Weeknd], and “Wanted You” [feat. Lil Uzi Vert].

NAV has quietly arrived as one of rap’s most innovative and infectious voices. Early last year he joined forces with powerhouse producer Metro Boomin for the collaborative album, Perfect Timing. Meanwhile, 2016 saw him not only co-produce the GRAMMY Award-nominated “Back To Back” for Drake, but he also featured on and produced the platinum-selling “Beibs in the trap” for Travi$ Scott’s blockbuster Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight. A streaming phenomenon, he regularly averages over 7.6 million monthly listeners on Spotify making him one of the most-listened-to artists worldwide. In addition to selling out solo shows coast to coast, he also joined The Weeknd for The Starboy Tour. Over the last year he’s garnered production credits on tracks with Kodak Black, Gucci Mane, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, and most recently The Carters [Jay-Z & Beyonce]. This tastemaker favorite has also received praise from Rolling Stone, Complex, Billboard, and The Fader.

Interscope Records emcee Dreezy recently teamed up with 6LACK and Kodak Black to let out a few frustrations on a track titled “Spar.”The animated video for “Spar” uses friendly, energetic visuals to convey serious, important issues about America’s current political turmoil.

Today, rising star Ebenezer releases his visual for his track ‘Ask Around’. Directed by Bafic (Mabel/Lily Allen) and his signature style, the video follows Ebenezer on a night out with his friends through a fly on the wall perspective around his city. The video premiered earlier today via The FADER and the song is available at all digital retailers.

‘If you ask around you’ll know we are the life of the party’

In a few short years Ebenezer has worked with the likes of Rejjie Snow, Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign and Craig David. With the recent release of “Cliché” featuring PnB Rock, Ebenezer heightens his musical journey, by genre-bending his emotionally tinged R&B by combining it with trap, completely void of the usual pretence that’s flooded the genre. In a way, it could be described as conscious turn-up music.

Born in East London, Ebenezer spent most of his childhood at a cousin’s house in Hackney along with his brother and sister. While his mother was busy holding down three jobs, Ebenezer and his brother spent most of their free time listening to music, watching MTV Base and learning to produce.

TYLER JACOB

East coast born and bred, Tyler Jacob is a singer/songwriter who got his start in the industry after being discovered singing on the trains of NYC.

At the age of 5 years old, Tyler Jacob started singing and performing in school plays. Tyler says that “I’ve always wanted to sing. It was a natural thing for me.” His family recalls little Tyler putting on shows in the family living room.

“I don’t come from a family of singers. I’m the only one.” 

But it wasn’t until his freshmen year in high school did he realize others thought he had a gift, when he was accidentally placed in a choir class. “The choir teacher asked me to sing, so she could classify my voice.” The rest is history. After the choir teacher heard Tyler’s voice, she had him transferred to Creative Arts High School (CAHS) in Camden, New Jersey.

Tyler’s passion to sing, write and perform his own music, in English and Spanish, pushed him after he graduated from CAHS to move to the big Apple to pursue his singing career. Since then he has gone on to win numerous talent shows , performed on many stages across the US, opened up for Grammy Award winner, Brandy Norwood, and logged studio time with Carvin & Ivan (Chris Brown, Musiq Soulchild, Mario), and Andrea Martin (Leona Lewis, Monica, Mary J. Blige).  

Tyler credits artists like Brandy, Eryka Badu, Lauryn Hill, Aaliyah, Jon B, Marc Anthony, Tank, Maxwell, as some of his influences.

Aly Ryan

Aly Ryan was born September 25, 1995 to German parents who at the time were war correspondents in Moscow, Russia.

Traveling from one place to another at a very young age she learned several languages and eventually moved back to Germany where she developed a love for the music her father would play for her. Inspired by songwriters like Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Pink Floyd, she soon started writing her own music. At the age of 16, shortly after her handicapped brother passed away, she packed her bags and made the move all the way to Los Angeles on her own.

She has since been working with her favorite producers including legends like Babyface, Red One and Toby Gad, recently releasing her debut single ‘No Parachute’ which has been charting on the Soundcloud top 50 pop chart worldwide since its release with currently over 1 million streams.

Head Of Pop at Spotify Mike Biggane included “No Parachute” on New Music Friday U.S and Major tastemaker Ebro Darden from Hot 97 talked about Aly Ryan on Beats 1 (Apple Music’a Radio station) and introduced the single to the world.

Single #2 “Donate A Dollar” was released September 8th, 2017 and is already at over 100k streams on Soundcloud.

This year Aly also opened for infamous Zane Carney ( who is the lead guitarist for John Mayer) at the El Rey theater and she has collaborated with Post Modern Jukebox (youtube cover band with 3 million subscribers and who tours worldwide} on a cover of “Million Reasons” by Lady Gaga which has garnered a lot of attention on Youtube.

Rolls-Royce

Rolls-Royce tops the list, featured in 11 different tunes by such artists as Future, The Weeknd, and Kodak Black. Ferrari is a close second. Chevrolet, Lamborghini, Bentley, Cadillac, Mercedes-Benz, and Porsche each get touts in several songs. Among non-car shout-outs, old standbys Hennessy cognac and Nike’s Air Jordan sneaker label got the most. We also found that it’s not just alcohol, guns, clothing, and super luxury making it into songs anymore—software, cookware, and even Band-Aids are making the grade.

As far as the song including the most name-checks, the crown goes to “Bad and Boujee” by hip-hop group Migos, which climbed all the way to the No. 1 spot on the charts early this year. It includes 19 brand mentions, from Instagram and Klout to Segway scooters and, um, Crock-Pot slow cookers. Car references are sprinkled throughout the song, too. They rap about a “lamb” and a “frog,” nods to Lamborghini and Porsche. There’s also a reference to the Ferrari 458 Spider, a drop-top convertible that costs more than a quarter-million dollars. The Rolls-Royce Ghost gets some attention as well.

The obvious question when musicians mention obscure brands is, are they getting paid? Sometimes they do. As with television shows and feature films, brands like to insert themselves into pop culture, and music is no different. Dozens of music videos show off stuff from Beats, the Jimmy Iovine/Dr. Dre headphones brand owned by Apple Inc. The item appears in several of Lady Gaga’s music videos, from her breakout hit “Just Dance” to “Poker Face” and “Telephone.” Beats Pill speakers, meanwhile, are clearly visible in videos from Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, and Nicki Minaj.

It’s often unclear what’s a paid placement and what’s not, however, since artists generally don’t disclose the deals. No, Drake wasn’t paid by Rolls-Royce to include the Wraith in “Portland,” or its bigger and pricier cousin, the Phantom, in “Jumpman,” according to the manufacturer. But Chris Brown’s 2008 hit “Forever,” which featured the line “double your pleasure,” turned out to be an extended version of a chewing gum jingle for Wrigley’s Doublemint.

There’s a middle ground, however. Rolls-Royce, for example, will sometimes provide cars to be featured in music videos, said company spokesman Gerry Spahn. When someone uses the car as a shorthand for luxury, it helps the brand, he said. And besides, celebrities and musicians make up about 20 percent of the automaker’s customers, so it has the potential to be a sales strategy, too. 

The $400,000 Phantom is Rolls-Royce’s signature vehicle, but the company has attracted much hype for three other models it’s released since 2009: the Ghost, Wraith, and Dawn. All have garnered song mentions, with the Wraith topping the tally with four.
While parent company BMW AG keeps close tabs on the Rolls-Royce brand, Spahn said they’re more than happy for the exposure. Last year, Rolls-Royce had its second-highest sales numbers ever, delivering more than 4,000 cars to wealthy customers around the world. Even if the car’s desirability increased, production constraints limit the company to a maximum of 6,000 cars a year, said a person with knowledge of its operations.
