Chris Tucker to Host EBONY Power 100 Gala

EBONY Magazine announces the host for its annual EBONY Power 100 Gala and this year’s special award recipients.

Acclaimed actor and comedian Chris Tucker will steer the star-studded event.

Distinguished industry leaders to be recognized with the EBONY Icon Award and Inaugural Chairman’s Award

Following the recent unveiling of its prestigious annual EBONY Power 100 List in celebration those whose work and heroism continue to inspire and influence society, EBONY magazine has announced the host for this year’s highly anticipated EBONY Power 100 Gala, presented by Nationwide, taking place in Los Angeles at the Beverly Hilton on Nov. 30.

EBONY is also pleased to announce the recipients of this year’s coveted special awards which will be presented during Hollywood’s star-studded spectacle.

Helming the celebration of the 2018 EBONY Power 100 list honoring crusaders, innovators, disruptors, business titans, entrepreneurs and MVPs who are making a difference in the community at the EBONY Power 100 Gala is international award-winning actor Chris Tucker. Once a frequent stand-up performer on Def Comedy Jam in the 1990s, Tucker is best known today for playing Det. James Carter in the Rush Hour film series. Chris is currently returning to the stage on his stand-up comedy tour that has received rave reviews all over the world, while spending much of his spare time traveling and working with his foundation.

EBONY Media Operations CEO Michael Gibson will present the inaugural Chairman’s Award to former BET Chairman and CEO Debra Lee. The trailblazing business dynamo joined BET as executive vice president and general counsel in 1986, was promoted to president and COO of the network that reaches approximately 78 million homes in March 1996 and to chairman and CEO in 2005. She guided much of the 38-year-old network’s growth beyond music and into entertainment, news and public affairs programming, including original movies, late-night talk shows and concert specials, with successes such as bringing to cable The Game in 2014 and the miniseries. The New Edition Story in 2017, the launch of BET.com and the acquisition of the television rights to Black Girls Rock!

This year’s prestigious EBONY Icon Award will be presented to Motown Records. There simply isn’t a name in music more synonymous with era-defining hits, star-making, and innovation than Motown. Started in Detroit with a dream and an $800 loan, Berry Gordy’s Hitsville USA became a cultural behemoth that swiftly hooked pop culture with a brand new beat. The unmistakable, irrepressible sound of young America didn’t just dominate the charts–it crossed the racial divide during the social upheaval of the 1960’s. The hits and cultural influence doesn’t stop as Motown and its family of imprints explore new genres in partnerships with labels including Quality Control Music, which set the stage for signings of Migos and Lil Yachty. In recognition of the brand’s iconic relevance and impact, EBONY is pleased to honor Motowns decades of success. The award will be accepted by Motown President, and EVP of Capitol Music Group. Ethiopia Habtemariam, who is also honored in the Women Up category for her outstanding leadership in the music industry.

Habtemariam, whose former title, President of Urban Music & Co-Head of Creative for Universal Music Publishing, is responsible for revitalizing the storied label that boasts hit makers NE-YO and Erykah Badu. Habtemariam has ushered in a new generation of artists with acts like JAMESDAVIS, Lil Baby, City Girls, and BJ The Chicago Kid. Last summer, Billboard magazine recognized her as Universal Music Group’s Most Powerful African-American Woman.

“We are delighted to announce our celebrated host and award recipients for this year’s EBONY Power 100 Gala,” says Gibson. “Since unveiling our 2018 EBONY Power 100 List last month, the anticipation and buzz throughout the country has been very exciting to see. This year’s gala will surely prove to be the most memorable to date, and I would like to personally congratulate all our honorees.”

The 2018 EBONY Power 100 List recognizes the most influential and inspiring from the business, philanthropic, entertainment, and social activism communities in the following eight categories: Community Crusaders, Disruptors, Entertainment & Arts, Entrepreneurs, Innovators, MVPs, Power Players and the coveted Women Up.

Madison beer, 360 MAGAZINE

MADISON BEER × OFFSET

Independent pop singer-songwriter Madison Beer has released her brand new single “Hurts Like Hell” featuring Offset today.

Co-written by Charli XCX and Madison, featuring Migos’ Offset, “Hurts Like Hell’’provides fans a glimpse of what’s to come from Beer’s debut album due for release in 2019.

On the new single Madison explains, “The song’s production feels really new to me — it’s got a vibe in the beat like I haven’t heard before. I love Charli XCX, so getting to work with her was really inspiring. Offset felt like the perfect fit for the track. He’s one of the most talented, professional, down to Earth artists I’ve ever worked with, and his verse absolutely kills it.”

“Hurts Like Hell” comes hot on the heels of the success of Madison’s previous single “Home With You”, which made music history when it peaked within the Top 20 of US Top 40 radio chart, making Beer the first independent female solo artist to ever do so.

Madison Beer is an independent artist breaking in a major way. Her debut EP, “As She Pleases” (which spawned “Home With You”, “Say It To My Face” and “Dead”), has notched up over 400 million combined streams since its release in February. Her Spring/ Summer 2018 headline worldwide tour sold out within minutes of going on sale, while her first ever festival performance at Lollapalooza over the summer was lauded by critics.

This year has also seen Madison make her late-night debut on The Late Late Show With James Corden; feature in Billboard’s coveted “21 Under 21” list of top musicians in 2018; guest on David Guetta’s “7”album; perform alongside Liam Gallagher at Milan fashion Week A/W 2018; grace the covers of numerous magazines worldwide (including, most recently, Flaunt magazine); launch her own clothing collection (with leading online womenswear retailer missguided); and be enlisted as the face of a Bulgari fragrance campaign. All in addition performing live to an audience of 80 million viewers at the Riot Games World Championships Event last week in celebration of her feature on K/DA’s debut track “POP/STARS” which has topped iTunes charts in over 16 territories worldwide within 72 hours.

Madison Beer – who has partnered with First Access Entertainment and is distributed through AWAL – is a fully independent artist consistently praised for her trailblazing efforts and her passion for creating music that empowers listeners. Her huge, engaged and ever growing fanbase, (evident from her 2.6 million+ followers on Twitter, and eye-popping 10. 5 million+ on Instagram), regard her as a pioneer of the ‘Girl Boss’ generation.

All eyes are on Madison as fans look to her first full length studio debut, set for release in 2019.

MIGOS WIN FAVORITE GROUP AWARD

Atlanta’s superstar, Grammy-Nominated trio Migos took home the trophy for Favorite Pop/Rock Group at the American Music Awards last night. The big win comes amid the colossal year they have had with the release of their second consecutive album on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart, CULTURE II (Quality Control Music Motown Records Capitol).
Quavo has also just shared a new futuristic video for “Bubblegum” directed by himself and Daps ahead of the release of his debut album Q U A V O H U N C H O this coming Friday via Quality Control Music Motown Records Capitol. Watch the video HERE. The video comes on the heels of his show-stopping performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last week here performing the previously released tracks from the album “Lambtalk” and “Workin Me”. Additionally DJ Khaled just announced he will be premiering Q U A V O H U N C H O album on his new Beats radio show on Thursday night. Check out the new video for “Bubble Gum” below, share and stay tuned for the new album Friday.

DREI ROS × “LIT”

“LIT” – Drei Ros, Sy Ari Da Kid, Reo Gragun & Tray Haggerty:

Romanian born music artist Drei Ros has spent years spicing up tracks for artists such as Pusha T, Gucci Mane and Kap G. Today, he added to his already impressive collection of hit collaborations with his latest single “LIT” featuring Sy Ari Da Kid, Reo Cragun and Tray Haggerty.

Drei was additionally recently featured on the Latina trap track “Bomberos” alongside Latino/Urbano duo Los Rakas and produced by DJ duo Breakfast N Vegas. The successful single was featured on Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday Latin’ and ‘Beast Mode’ playlists. Both new singles come in anticipation of Drei’s forthcoming debut album “Excuse My Accent,” produced by by 808 Mafia (who produced tracks for Future, Drake, Migos, Travis Scott, DJ Khaled, etc.). The album, which shows a never-before-heard side of Drei as an artist, is set to release October 2018.

Drei has endured grand success in a short amount of time, leading up to the creation of his debut album. He officially began his career in 2009, teaming up with artists Burre Collins and Dyce Dylli to form the band B.O.S.S. (“building our success story”). His infectious Romanian accent added intrigue to his English raps, and brought quick success to several B.O.S.S. singles – ultimately leading to the curation of the band’s album and a tour of the Pacific Northwest.

Still new to the music industry and experimenting with his sound, Drei teamed up with more artists of different backgrounds to dabble with adding his own creative style to a multitude of genres. He’s since paired up with the likes of Jamaican Reggae legend Junior Reid, Alex Mica, Evelyn, Rick Ross, Gucci Mane, Pusha T, Krisha, etc. In 2016, Drei’s music video went viral for “Shake Dat Monkey” featuring JBo of the Youngbloodz (and Messiah on the Latin remix), garnering 3.3M+ YouTube views. Continuing his history of successful collabs in 2017, Drei released the singles “Ordinary Day” featuring Pack The Arcade and “I Need You” featuring Marvelus Fame and Bel. At the beginning of 2018, Drei teamed up with J Romero and Kap G to create “Loco” with an accompanying music video, which has already garnered 1.2M+ views on YouTube alone.

Now, Drei is out to show the world his own sound by releasing an album of his original tracks with “Excuse My Accent.” The trap album mixes English and Spanish languages, giving it the edge of an international appeal. With his Romanian roots and the lessons from his many collaborations molded into the foundation of the artist he has become, Drei’s album will have hints of his past creations – but overall be a never-before-heard music brand for fans that fully embodies this musical mastermind of ‘Drei Ros’ as an artist.

New Music from Julia Micheals and Trippie Redd

GRAMMY® Award-nominated and multi-platinum selling artist JULIA MICHAELS returns with a brand new single entitled “Jump” [feat. Trippie Redd] today. Get it HERE (Post & Share) via Republic Records.

The song heralds the arrival of her anxiously awaited full-length debut—coming soon.

Since emerging in 2015, JULIA has transformed pop not only from behind-the-scenes as a songwriter whose credits span everyone from Justin Bieber to Selena Gomez, but in the spotlight as a solo artist. Her rapid rise can be attributed to identifiable honesty in every lyric. Within just a year since arrival, she garnered 2018 GRAMMY® nominations in the categories of “Best New Artist” and “Song of the Year” for “Issues.

It’s why the industry recognized her with nominations everywhere from American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, Teen Choice Awards and RDMA’s to the MTV VMAS and MTV EMAS.

Extending and expanding her influence, she traffics at the forefront of numerous genres. She lent her voice to Clean Bandit’s international hit “I Miss You,which became her first Top 10 entry on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Dance Songs chart. Right now, she also features on Keith Urban’s latest single “Coming Home” and rising artist Noah Kahan’s single “Hurt Somebody.”  Other collaborations include a duet and writing credits on Shawn Mendes’ upcoming album, songs on Christina Aguilera’s upcoming album, a co-writing credit for Janelle Monàe’s latest “Make Me Feel, and a sample of her vocals on Migos“Gang Gang.Moreover, she’s written on recent albums from P!nk, Maroon 5, and Jesse Ware.

Next up on May 18, she performs “Jump” on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! and on the Today Show Summer Concert SeriesJuly 27.

Julia continues to shine on stage as well. Following sold out shows alongside Shawn Mendes and Niall Horan  overseas, she embarks on her first official U.S. tour, joining Maroon 5 for the Red Pill Blues Tour beginning this June (see dates below).

Conversation With Coach K

On April 11th, UMUSIC Experience hosted a Masterclass – a conversation with Hip-Hop cultural icon Coach K, moderated by Spotify’s Artist & Label Marketing Manager Amber Grimes at the historic African-American Morehouse College. The event was held at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center to nearly 400 students.

Watch Here: Event Recap

Grimes asked a series of questions about manifestation, trust, adaptation and continuous progress.

Coach K immediately began dropping gems throughout the conversation. “Everything I do is applied to sports and every team needs a coach?” says the former all-state quarterback
football player and scholarship awarded basketball player Kevin Coach K”. Lee when discussing
his relationship with Quality Control, the label he shares with Pierre Pee Thomas.”

Together they run a record label and recording studio and manage artists Migos, Lil Yachty, Lil Baby,
Trippie Redd and many more.

When Grimes asked Coach K how he instills trust in his artist, he says “I let them dream. We let them be visionaries. We not coming to change anything. We just tighten the loose ends.”Coach K knows a great deal about helping artists become superstars by combining their talent
and work ethic while taking risks.”We built our whole company [by] taking risks! Sometimes you gotta take that risk.” Coach K also added that he focuses heavily on the artists’ brands. “ I also believe in brand-building and luck doesn’t come in brand building.”

Both Atlanta natives, Coach K and Amber Grimes were passionate about bringing this event to the historically black Atlanta University Center.

”I have been wanting to do this event for three years,” says Coach K.

“This is my first time doing something like this.”Coach K hopes he can use his life as masterclass to teach others how to become successful.”

There is no book that can teach you about this business. It’s on-job training. If I can let my story lead somebody’s path, I’m with it,” he says. “The day you come complacent is the day it stops. You have to keep going!”

UMUSIC Experience partnered with Quality Control Music, Motown, Capitol Music Group & Caroline to bring the masterclass to life.
