Indie artist OTR has signed to Astralwerks, who released his new single, “Heart” ft. Shallou, today. Shallou’s searing vocals paired with OTR’s evocative piano create a poignant yet ultimately transcendent track with the indelible refrain “We get out alive/in your heart.”

Shallou an independent artist who has earned SiriusXM #1 spots with tracks like “Lie” and “Begin” and landed on the Billboard Dance charts played “Heart” live for the massive crowd that gathered in the Sahara Tent for his set at both weekends of Coachella 2019.

Ryan, the 26-year old aerospace engineer-turned-producer behind OTR, uncovered his passion for music in 2012, when he began tinkering on a dusty, run-down piano in his college dorm lobby to break up the routine of classes and studying. Shortly thereafter, he picked up a guitar and began experimenting with Logic on his MacBook Pro. Taking an internship in Japan in 2014, he found himself living in the small town of in Kurashiki, with no friends and a major language barrier. To combat the isolation, he purchased a keyboard and a train pass and spent all his free time making music and traveling to bigger cities. When he returned to the States, Ryan moved into a neighborhood on the outskirts of downtown Cincinnati known as “Over-the-Rhine” or OTR. The once-neglected area had undergone a renaissance that mirrored his own journey of discovery as music went from hobby to career goal, so it became the ideal name for his project.

As an independent artist, OTR has released a series of singles and the 2018 EP Unfold, racking up more than 7 million cumulative streams across DSPs. The Line of Best Fit observed, “OTR produces complex summer tinged pop that begs to be danced to.” NYLON noted, “A song called Bliss has a lot to live up to. Luckily [it] achieves just that-tenfold.” Praising his 2018 collaboration with Blondage, “Cold Facts,” Ones To Watch said, “we’re confident with just one push of the play button, you will become an instant devotee.” Last week, Thissongissick premiered OTR’s remix of RKCB’s “Know Love”, and noted, “he has really outdone himself another incredible release.”

Logic Makes History with DEBUT NOVEL SUPERMARKET

LOGIC MAKES HISTORY AS DEBUT NOVEL SUPERMARKET DEBUTS AT #1 ON NEW YORK TIMES PAPERBACK FICTION BEST-SELLER LIST – FIRST-EVER BY A HIP-HOP ARTIST

SUPERMARKET SOUNDTRACK DEBUTS AT #6 ON ALTERNATIVE CHART – A FIRST IN LOGIC’S MULTI-FACETED CAREER  

NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO “CONFESSIONS OF A DANGEROUS MIND” – TITLE TRACK FROM FORTHCOMING ALBUM – EXPLODES WITH A COMBINED 30MM PLAYS

Grammy nominated, multi-platinum, pop culture multi-hyphenate artist Logic (aka Bobby Hall) makes history once again, becoming the first-ever hip-hop MC to author a New York Times fiction bestseller, as his debut novel SUPERMARKET (Simon & Schuster, publica­tion date March 26th) officially tops today’s prestigious Paperback Fiction list at #1.  The novel, which held on to #1 retail at Amazon and Barnes & Noble all week, has been described as a fresh, funny, and deliciously dark thriller that stands on its own as a propulsive and entertaining excursion into madness and creativity, cementing Logic’s flair for cinematic storytelling.

At the same time, Logic’s accompanying SUPERMARKET “soundtrack” album, simultane­ously released March 26th via via Def Jam Record­ings/ Vision­ary Music Group, debuts at #6 this week on the Billboard Alternative Album chart, an ‘Alt’ chart first for Logic.  Exploring new genres, the melodic soundtrack presents a guitar-driven, live band sound, as Logic teams with acclaimed multi-instrumentalist and producer Mac DeMarco on several tracks.

Logic’s April triple-play is rounded out by an explosive new single and video released last week, “Confessions Of a Dangerous Mind,” the title track from his upcoming fifth studio album, release details to be announced in the weeks ahead. In its first week out, “Confessions Of a Dangerous Mind” has accumulated nearly 20 million streams, and 10 million collective views of the video.

SUPERMARKET and the forthcoming CONFESSIONS OF A DANGEROUS MIND follow-up YSIV (September 2018), the fourth chapter of Logic’s Young Sinatra saga.  Logic galvanized the MTV VMA audience last summer with his impactful performance of the album’s first advance single “One Day” featuring Ryan Tedder and over 200 immigrant children, their siblings and parents. View the live performance HERE.

Prior to YSIV, Logic debuted at #1 Soundscan with his breakout third album Everybody (May 2017), containing the RIAA 5x-platinum single “1-800-273-8255” (National Suicide Prevention Lifeline) featuring fellow Def Jam artist Alessia Cara and Khalid. The song catapulted Logic to worldwide acclaim as it brought mental health and suicide prevention aware­ness to the critical conversation. It earned Logic two Grammy® Award nominations – including Song Of The Year – and a triumphant closing performance at the 2018 Grammy® Awards (Watch Here).

In the interim, Logic dropped his Bobby Tarantino II mixtape in March 2018, which rocketed to a #1 album chart debut.  BTII spun off the RIAA gold Top 10 singles “44 More” and “Every­day” (featuring Philadel­phia DJ-producer Marshmello), and also boasted features from A-list heavies 2 Chainz, Big Sean, and Wiz Khalifa.  In June 2018, Logic kicked off a massive 33-city North American summer amphi­theater and arena tour, including such major venues as New York’s Madison Square Garden, PNE Amphitheatre in Vancouver, and the Forum in Los Angeles.

ABOUT LOGIC:

Multi-platinum, Grammy Nominated artist Logic (aka Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, aka Bobby Hall) – among the top streaming artists in the world with billions of streams to date – burst onto the music scene through a series of mixtapes that led to a significant, rabid underground fan base. Those tapes – Young, Broke, and Infamous (2010); Young Sinatra (2011); Young Sinatra: Undeniable (2012); and Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever (2013) – garnered millions of downloads and streams.  They jumpstarted a worldwide tour that led up to his record deal with Def Jam Recordings in 2014, and the release of his debut album Under Pressure that year.  Logic kept up the pace with his second album, The Incredible True Story (2015, with the RIAA gold “Fade Away”), followed by Everybody (2017), containing the landmark 5x-platinum “1-800-273-8255” (National Suicide Prevention Lifeline) featuring Alessia Cara and Khalid.  Overlapping Logic’s albums were new mixtapes Bobby Tarantino(2016, with the RIAA gold “Flexicution”), and Bobby Tarantino II (2018, with the RIAA gold tracks “44 More” and “Every­day”).  YSIV (September 2018), the fourth chapter of his Young Sinatra saga, contained “One Day” which Logic performed with Ryan Tedder and over 200 immigrant children, their siblings and parents at the MTV VMAs.  2019 kicked off with the publication in March of SUPERMARKET (Simon & Schuster), the debut novel written by Bobby Hall, which entered the New York Times Paperback Fiction bestseller list at #1 – first-ever for a hip-hop artist.  It was accompanied by the SUPERMARKET“soundtrack” album, which debuted inside the Top 10 on the BillboardAlternative Album chart, an ‘Alt’ chart first for Logic.

Adé

Adé (formally Phil Ade) recently released his brand new EP Always Something.

In case you are unfamiliar, Adé is a Nigerian/Grenadian-American artist known for effortless lyrics and ability to smoothly transition between rapping and singing. He has previously worked with artists such as Logic and Mac Miller, and his new six-track EP features collaborations with Lil Baby, Rich The Kidand Wale. Adé has previously caught the attention of publications such as Billboard, Complex, XXL, HypeBeast, Hot New Hip Hop and more. Beginning a new chapter in his career with a new name and unique sound, Adé is on his way to rap stardom and a chance for his reinvention to inspire on a massive scale. He recently freestyled over Jay-Z’s “Threat” on L.A. Leakers which can be seen HERE.

Adé is the true voice of the DMV hip-hop scene and has fueled a new wave of D.C. rap. His global perspective can be seen on his diverse new EP featuring undeniable anthems and powerful lyrics. As an artist, he is able to deliver music with something for everyone as he combines live instrumentation, hip-hop, rapping, and singing. Ade’s songs focus on the positives in his life and showcase the newfound confidence he has achieved while introducing himself as a new leader in the DMV hip-hop movement.

More about Adé

In between, growth occurs. Silver Spring, Maryland rapper, producer, and artist Adé (born Phil Adetumbi) underwent such evolution. Under the name Phil Adé, he delivered a string of independent mixtapes, singles, and appearances in addition to collaborations with everyone from Logic and Mac Miller to Raekwon and Bootsy Collins. Starting in 2013, he dove into honing his craft, writing in the studio with a variety of artists, perfecting his own sound as well as his live performance. He ultimately developed his voice immensely. During this time, he made extensive contributions as a writer and featured act to Wale’s #1 opus The Album About Nothing [2015] and Shine [2017], in addition to working with Raheem DeVaughn, Anthony Hamilton, Chris Brown, Eric Bellinger, Mýa, Trevor Jackson, Serayah, 9th Wonder and Bink , while gracing the stage on the sold out SHIN3 Tour. In 2017, he shared the solo single “No Fear” [feat. Tate Kobang and Saba Abraha], which soundtracked WWE NXT and clocked half-a-million streams. Upon the latter’s arrival,Billboard described him as “ready to seize his opportunity at rap stardom.”

However, he changed everything for 2019. He opted to go by simply Adé, signed to Epic Records, and cooked up his first EP of the label, Always Something.

“I spent a long time recording and figuring out what I wanted my sound to be like,” he admits. “I feel like I’m there now. I was able to watch Wale and see a lot of the ‘do’s and don’ts’ of being an artist on a major label and how to behave in different situations. Everything got me to my comfort zone. I’ve found a happy medium between singing and rapping. It’s a new era in my life. That’s why I felt the need to reintroduce myself. I’m definitely more experienced. I’m more comfortable with what I’m doing. Since I wanted to start fresh, I changed my name. This is a clean slate. I’m a new artist.”

At the same time, he still kept his heritage and hometown close. Born to a Nigerian father and Grenadian mother, he grew up with a global mindset when it came to music, going from singing in church to rapping in high school. Coming up in the DMV scene, he also developed an appreciation for the live instrumentation intrinsic to the region’s “Go-go” movement before eventually galvanizing the first wave of D.C. rap.

His perspective informs the diversity of Always Something. The six-track project kicks off with the sharp and fiery flow of “Play Something.” Backed by live drums and wailing synths, he properly makes his introduction by “rapping continuously in freestyle fashion about who I am, where I’m from, and where I’m at,” as he puts it.

Immediately after, “Something New” [feat. Lil Baby] coasts along on an airy beat as he locks into a laidback and confident cadence punctuated by a magnetic turn from Lil Baby.

“I made the song one night after coming home from the club,” he goes on. “My art always needs to be fun. It’s all about seeing what’s going on around me, how people move, and staying focused. Lil Baby killed it.”

Elsewhere, “Something from Nothing” [feat. Rich The Kid] stretches from hypnotic verses into a hard-hitting hook. Another highlight, “Something Real” [feat. GoldLink & Wale], unites three DMV titans on one seismic collaboration. As all of the songs feature “Something” in their titles, the project maintains a true cohesion.

“As I was recording, I kept thinking about the phrase ‘Always Something’,” he elaborates. “I found a deeper meaning. In life, you’re met with negatives, and you’re met with positives. From my experience, I’ve always been able to have more peace and progress when I am focused on whatever good is going on in my life. When it seems like everything going on is negative, it’s easier to move forward when you are focused on the upside. There’s Always Something to remain positive about.”

In the end, Adé’s reinvention paves the way to inspire on a massive scale.

“No matter what’s happening, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel,” he leaves off. “Stay positive. I want everyone to know that.”

“Bobby Hall has crafted a mind-bending first novel, with prose that is just as fierce and moving as his lyrics. Supermarket is like Naked Lunch meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest—if they met at Fight Club.” —Ernest Cline, #1 New York Times Bestselling author of Ready Player One

From one of the greatest creative voices of this generation, Bobby Hall—aka Logic, the Grammy-nominated and platinum-selling recording artist—comes a dazzling debut novel: SUPERMARKET (Simon & Schuster; Publication Date: March 26, 2019). With this publication, Bobby Hall proves that his incredible artistic talents extend far beyond the walls of a recording studio.SUPERMARKET is a fresh, funny, and deliciously dark thriller that stands on its own as a propulsive and entertaining excursion into madness and creativity.

SUPERMARKET opens with Flynn: depressed, recently dumped, and living at his mom’s house. When he gets a job at Muldoon’s, the local supermarket, he hopes that his boring suburban existence will get a spark of inspiration. A diverse group of eccentric coworkers await him. As Flynn gets accustomed to his new gig and makes some friends, his creative juices start to bubble again—just what he needed to jumpstart his novel based on the people he meets on the job.

Crackling with dark humor, extraordinary twists, and larger than life characters, SUPERMARKET is a compulsively readable thriller with echoes of work by Quentin Tarantino, Chuck Palahniuk, and Kurt Vonnegut.
