On The Verge of Stardom: Q+A With Rising Female Rapper, Malaynah

You just released your new single ‘Outta My Face’ tell us about the inspiration behind this song.

The inspiration behind my new single ‘Outta My Face’ was my energy and positivity I have within me. I wrote that song to inspire others to have the same energy that I do and surround themselves with that same positivity as well. 

You will be performing at the upcoming Welcome To The West music festival, how do you feel about being the only female rapper in the lineup? 

Being the only female on the Welcome to the West lineup means so much to me. I get to represent all the ladies on this lineup with so many legends. It makes me feel pumped up and ready to show everyone what I bring to the table. 

What are you most excited about for this performance?

I’m most excited to let my fans hear some of my unreleased music I’ll be performing. 

Cardi B reposted your video where you freestyled over her track “Money” and it hit over 12 millions view on her Instagram. What was your initial reaction?

When Cardi B reposted my freestyle video, my initial reaction was “NO F****** WAY.” I couldn’t believe it. I was so happy and proud of myself. That day was just filled with all kinds of emotion. 

We hear you began writing songs when you were 12 and secretly rapped in front of your bathroom mirror. When did you decide to share your talents in public and what made you decide to not keep it a secret anymore?

Performing in front of my family and getting the support I needed to actually put myself out there played a really big role with my decision to start posting my videos on social media platforms. Then when I got the response everyone in my family was telling me I was going to get, it made me just want to keep going. 

What or whom inspired you to start rapping?

What inspired me to start rapping was the reaction I would get when I would perform. When people were listening to what I was saying, and shared that a line I wrote hit home for them. Their reaction was just priceless. So I figured, if I can help people get through something by my words, I want this forever. 

What are you most excited about in your career right now?

Right now, I’m mostly excited about all the new songs and projects that are going to be dropping soon.

Do you have any new upcoming projects in the making?

Yes I have an E.P. that is going to be coming out very soon! 

If you could have one dream dinner guest, who would it be?

If I could go to dinner with ANYONE, I think I would want to sit down with J. Cole.

Jose Mourinho Discusses Video Assistant Referring

World renowned football manager Jose Mourinho, and recently retired footballer Samuel Eto’o took to the LaLiga Headquarters in Madrid to discuss speed & innovation in football, including the hot topic of Video Assistant Referring [VAR]. 

The duo spoke at an exclusive event, as they helped launch the global partnership between LiveScore and LaLiga. The collaboration will see LiveScore support the Spanish league’s new Replay360º feature, an Intel-powered technology, that will allow La Liga audiences to access 38 individual camera positions across Spanish stadiums, delivering football’s most immersive coverage. 

The duo were also joined on the panel by LaLiga President, Javier Tebas, who explained how the partnership is further evidence of the league’s drive to introduce the right technologies to improve fans’ matchday experience both inside the stadium and at home, LiveScore Ambassador, Jose Mourinho, commented: 

“It is important football continues to innovate and embrace technologies that can develop the game for clubs and leagues but, and I say this after my first summer as a fan, that the emotion remains in football. LiveScore’s partnership with LaLiga most definitely puts the fan first.”


The discussion comes at an exciting moment for technology in football as the Premier League becomes the latest competition to introduce Video Assistant Refereeing (VAR), after its introduction to LaLiga in the 2018/19 season. Mourinho believes that this is a positive move for the sport.

“Of course, as a manager sometimes you receive a favorable decision and sometimes a disastrous one. I like the essence of VAR to reduce human error and we will all learn it and adapt to it, but I hope we will still maintain the raw excitement. Before, when a goal went in, I used to look at the referee, now I look at the screen!” 

With its core pillars of speed, simplicity and reliability, LiveScore has been at the forefront of the drive to use technology to enhance the experience of fans across multiple sports, and football in particular.

Anuel AA and Ozuna “Adicto”

Latin GRAMMY© winning producer Tainy taps Latin trap rapper Anuel AA, and reggaetonero Ozuna for his latest single, “Adicto” out now on Interscope Records/ Neon 16. “Adicto” was featured as Zane Lowe’s World Record today on Apple Music’s Beats 1 and is available now at all  digital retailers

The Zak Facts directed video comes just in time for cuffing season, highlighting the trios trysts with love. Coming out swinging as a solo artist, Tainy powers back-to-back hits such as, “Callaita,” with Bad Bunny, and “I Can’t Get Enough” with benny blanco, Selena Gomez, and J. Balvin — the mogul continues to thrive on the music scene. View the video for “Adicto” here.

“Adicto” is the latest single off of Tainy’s upcoming solo project under NEON16 — his multifaceted label recently co-founded with renowned music exec, and former EVP at Roc Nation Records, Lex Borrero. The “Adicto” music video features Tainy’s first-ever close-up as a bonafide solo artist. And the multi-hyphenate, Tainy, plays his renowned keys on camera for his loyalists, as Ozuna croons: “Han pasado varios días y estoy enfermo de ti/ Dime que me hiciste mal/ De mi memoria yo no te puedo borrar/ Dios me va a castigar le prometí te iba a olvidar.”

Anuel AA articulates the growing pains of love, as the MC’s “Adicto” vice on wax is his woman. The thrill of a passionate love often runs its course, and the picturesque “Adicto” video shows both the highs and lows of multiple young lovers. And with the outro, “Bebe yo soy adicto a tu piel/ Yo trato de explicarte y tu no quieres entender,” Tainy, Ozuna, and Anuel AA leave their “Adicto” viewers wondering if the thing they love most is what they are better off without.

“Do You?”

“Do You?” – RJ Word

RJ takes on a unique out-of-the-box approach to ‘pop’ incorporating elements of live brass horns, electronic beats and his signature falsetto melodies into his music. He often spices up his tracks with Latin influences he’s picked up throughout his career while working hand-in-hand with top artists such as Pitbull and Juan Magan. RJ’s new single “Do You?” closely follows behind the recent releases of his pop-funk love ballad “Love Hurts” and electro-pop single “You Played Yourself” mixed by Latin DJ Victor Magan. With an eclectic music catalogue and sound like no other, RJ has set out to break the mold of ‘pop.’

Monsieur Job To Perform at the Colombia Billboard Latin Music Showcase in Bogota on July 26

The Band Will Join Wisin & Yandel, Greecy, Cosculluela, Choquibtown, Arthur Hanlon and More for A Spectacular Night of Multimedia and Music

On the heels of their highly successful and widely talked about performance at the ICON Awards in Colombia on June 13th, the fast rising international Pop/Latino/Underground group Monsieur Job will be performing alongside some of the industry’s top artists including Wisin & Yandel, Greecy, Cosculluela, Choquibtown and Arthur Hanlon at the Colombia Billboard Latin Music Showcase on Friday July 26th at the Movistar Arena in Bogota. Last year, the Billboard Latin Music Showcase was held for the first time in Bogota, where Colombian artists such as Manuel Medrano, Maia and Gusi, among others performed.

Monsieur Job has been very busy so far this year, releasing new music including “Vidana”, “Mi Contagie”, “Dulce Soledad”, “Gucci Celine”, “Desechable”, “Fire Fire (Block Remix)”, “Gidi Gidi Gi”, “Tanto Tiempo Sin Verte”, “I Wanna Be Your Dog (Block Remix)”, and “Flexin (Block Remix)” and producing videos for many of the singles including media favorites “Busque Mal”(which was also directed by Iye Teblu AKA Toby Holguin and his production company Mierda Frita) and “Homie (Block Remix)” Feat. Vick D.

Along with the singles and videos, bandleader Toby Holguin has shifted focus somewhat recently, adding writing/directing/acting/producing to his resume with TWO upcoming films – his new debut short film, the aforementioned “Gidi Gidi Gi” which he wrote and directed as Iye Teblu, along with Peruvian film “Un Hombre Sin Ley”. Both are through his “Mierda Frita” production company based in Bogotá, Colombia that dedicates itself to film products like music videos, short films, and feature films as well as film services.

Toby Holguin lives music and gives music life. It was Toby’s vision to create Monsieur Job, a band that will rock you make you move your feet. The band, whose name is derived from “Job” of the bible; a righteous man who is tested by God, enduring many tragedies and hardships while struggling to remain faithful – will make you cry with passion. Formed by Holguin from Cali, Colombia, a beautiful place high in the mountains above the clouds. Toby then asked Charlie Illera from Barranquilla, Colombia, and Leo Jaramillo from Bogota, Colombia to become one musically as Monsieur Job. All of them live and breathe their own style of music combined they are Monsieur Job. Toby, Leo and Charlie spin records as DJs constantly for different pools and venues around the world. Moreover, Toby had the idea to start doing Urban Music besides Chill Out and Electronic Music, which is the vision that created the album “Bass Passi”. They started dropping broken beats with a more festive, shaky, groovy Caribbean Latin flavor turning it into an international exclusive mash up of world talents and a unique blend of genres.

For their debut release, Chow Chow Eyyy Pow Pow, the record has hit the Euro Indie Music Chart at #1 for 9 consecutive weeks as well as progressive singles; “Kick it” Remix feat. Charly Black, “Pica Pica”, Niña Shake Your Body” feat. No Mercy & Vojke Djans and “Chilliando Hangueando” feat. Cholo reaching the #1 position as well, the Digital Radio Tracker Top 10, and Top 200 for Best Albums, #2 for the Billboard Latin Rhythm Albums Chart, and the Billboard Top 10 Heatseekers Albums Chart for their album “Bass Passi”. This album was recorded in Bogota and Miami at Basswalk Studios, Outta Limits Studios in Miami, and Barba Studios in Belgrade and mastered at Sterling Studios, New York.

MALUMA Releases 11:11 Album

 

Today the global Latin music idol, MALUMA, releases his highly anticipated fourth album 11:11, alongside the music video for his new single ‘11PM’. 

The album, which includes collaborations with Madonna, Ricky Martin, Ozuna, Nicky Jam, Ty Dolla $ign, Zion y Lennox, Sech, Chencho and Farina drops one year after the release of F.A.M.E (May 18, 2018) which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Latin Albums chart  and earned Maluma a Latin GRAMMY for Best Contemporary Pop Vocal Album.

11:11 is a direct signal from our guides, angels and teachers to establish a moment of connection, synchronicity and awareness with ourselves, with the whole. It is a wake-up call, a door to meditate, to listen to our intuition, to look into our interior, time to stop and feel the subtle energies of the universe, it’s a call from our essence, a reminder of our true purpose on earth, it is a call to trust,” says MALUMA about the inspiration for the name of this album and tour.

The muse for 11:11 came to MALUMA earlier this year after a knee surgery that forced him to take time off from performing and touring. Instead of resting as he had planned, he worked non-stop alongside producer and composer Edgar Barrera with whom he also collaborated on F.A.M.E., and the result is an album that reflects the evolution of Juan Luis Londoño as an artist, with a body of music that is positive, fun and empowering.

11:11 Track Listing:
1. 11 PM
2. HP
3. No Se Me Quita featuring Ricky Martin
4. Dispuesto featuring Ozuna
5. No Puedo Olvidarte featuring Nicky Jam
6. Me Enamoré de Tí
7. Extrañándote featuring Zion y Lennox
8. Shhh (Calla)
9. Dinero Tiene Cualquiera
10. Soltera featuring Madonna
11. Te Quiero
12. Instinto Natural featuring Sech
13. Tu Vecina featuring Ty Dolla $ign
14. La Flaca featuring Chencho
15. Puesto Pa Ti featuring Farina
16. Déjale Saber

Brytiago announces “La Mentira Remix”

Brytiago and Rafa Pabon invite their urban collective crew Myke Towers, Rauw Alejandro, Sech and Cazzu to join in on an explosive remix of “La Mentira”

The international star of the urban genre Brytiago, announces the release of “La Mentira Remix” with his partners in crime Myke Towers, Rauw Alejandro, Sech and Cazzu.

“La Mentira Remix” is a collaboration of Brytiago and Rafa Pabón. The remix was produced by Roberto L. Figueroa, better known in the industry as Nekzum, Business Music. The remix is joined by the urban collective crew Myke Towers, Rauw Alejandro, Sech and Cazzugiving this remix a new edge and vibe.

The video was shot in Puerto Rico, themed around the uncovering and toxicness of lies and attraction. All done under the production of Ivan Joel and the art direction of innovator Abner Maldonado, better known as Abez.

“I spent a lot of time planning this remix. I personally called my colleagues and the truth is that the song exceeded all my expectations,” Brytiago.

Recently, Brytiago has been touring through Europe visiting cities such as Madrid and Milan, representing Puerto Rico to its fullest and creating growth and expansion of the urban genre beyond the Latin audience and onto the international market. As of May 2nd Brytiago has started a tour with Darell thru the US that will go thru the month of June.

Latinidad in American Festivals

Until recently, urbane Latin music has been scarce in mainstream American music festivals. Thus, the 2019 Coachella latino lineup is a huge deal because it’s the largest and most profitable one on the planet.

In the past, only a few latin artists have performed at the prestigious venue – Cafe Tacvba and The Mars Volta. In 2010, Calle 13 was the first urbano latino artist to hit the stage. In 2018, there were a total of 11 latin artists such as Helado Negro, Ibeyi, Los Angeles Azules, Kali Uchis and Cuco. Fast forward to the present, there’s 17 latin artists slated to perform at this year’s Coachella – a total win for the culture! As we all know, this roster will and has already attracted a much more diverse audience.

As of late, J Balvin brought reggeaton and latin urbano back to the stage. His performance included reggeaton classics like “Oye Mi Canto” by N.O.R.E featuring Nina Sky and “Rakata” by Wisin y Yandel. Bad Bunny took to the stage on April 14th and returns again on the 21st to make a second iconic show. Los Tucanes de Tijuana (popular group from the late 80’s) graced the stage playing “La Chona” and other hits.

Chilean singer, Mon Laferte, has sold over a half of a million albums in Latin America and is also listed on this year’s lineup. Her career began on a singing competition show in Chile, Rojo.

In short, the amount of Latin as well as minority artists added to major festival lineups will continue to develop, namely due to Beyoncé’s Homecoming.

Andy Vargas Goes Solo

SANTANA LEAD VOCALIST ANDY VARGAS TO RELEASE DEBUT SOLO SINGLE

“THE BEAT” ON MARCH 29TH

ESPN “Music Of The Month” To Feature “The Beat” In April

Watch the video HERE.

Santana lead vocalist Andy Vargas struck world-wide fame over a decade ago when he became the lead-singer for the iconic rock band, led by 12-time GRAMMY Award-winning artist Carlos Santana. Twenty world tours later, Vargas is now stepping out on his own with an up-tempo, soul-rock single, “The Beat,” out March 29th on Hip Spanic & Souleros Records. “The Beat” showcases Vargas’ signature Latin R&B sound – Souleros – a blend of “soul” and “boleros” influenced by classic funk and R&B/soul music. Souleros is also the name of his band.

“The Beat” will also be featured by ESPN’s “Music Of The Month” this April. 

“It is such a privilege to be recognized by the world as the voice for the legendary Santana. For many years, I have performed alongside my mentor, Carlos, who has always taught me to reach greater lengths in my career. I have learned so much about music through world cultures and have been influenced by world class artists I’ve had the privilege of collaborating with over the years. It’s an honor to now showcase my own music, which I consider to be the sound of the ‘New Chicano Soul,’ alongside my band Souleros,” says Vargas

2019 will be an exciting and action-packed year for Vargas. In addition to releasing the English and Spanish versions of “The Beat,” he releases his full-length, solo debut album in August (date tbd), preceded by several singles (including a guest appearance from Carlos Santana on a new version of “Oye Como Va”).

Vargas also will embark on a worldwide tour with Santana in celebration of 50 years of Santana’s music, the 50th Anniversary of Santana’s Woodstock performance (including a performance on the iconic Woodstock Stage at Woodstock 50), and the 20th Anniversary of Santana’s ‘Supernatural’ album.

The “Supernatural Now” tour with the Doobie Brothers kicks off June 22 and includes headlining dates at the Hollywood Bowl on June 24th and a series of New York area dates in late August.

His masterful soul-tinged voice has also graced stages with Enrique Iglesias, Patti Labelle, Taboo of the Black-Eyed Peas and Yanni, among others.
