Leven Kali Releases “I Get High When I Think About Us” Three-Song Pack

L.A.-based singer/songwriter/producer Leven Kali has released three new songs, “Mine,” “Thursday,” and “Too High” featuring fellow West Coast artists Buddy and Na’Kel. The tracks, written and co-produced by Leven himself, showcase his ability to display modern romance as a colorful, funk-inspired, and dreamy entity. Leven is due to release his debut full length project in the spring of 2019 on Palm Studios/ Interscope Records. A lyric video for “Thursday” is also out today, directed by Palm Studios.

The new tracks come as a follow up to Leven’s October double-single pack, NunWrong With a Lil’ Good Lovin’, which Billboard said “encompass lush, mellow R&B vibes that resemble Anderson Paak’s surreal sounds and the pop elements of Bruno Mars.” This fall, Leven joined Snoh Aalegra on the west coast leg of her tour.

Leven dropped his acclaimed single “Do U Wrong” ft. Syd back in January. Produced by Zack Sekoff (Vince Staples, Thundercat), the track features a writing contribution from Swedish singer/songwriter Snoh Aalegra. In its glowing review of “Do U Wrong,” Pitchfork stated that Leven “is out to write the next episode of California hip-hop: buttery neo-soul vocalism growling electric guitar, and G-funk thumo.” Leven is scheduled to release his full-length project in 2019.

APPLE MUSIC TO BAZZI

Today Bazzi becomes Apple Music’s Up Next artist; Releases highly anticipated album COSMIC

In just a few short months Bazzi has embarked on a meteoric rise to the top of the global Pop charts. Today he officially joins Apple Music’s Up Next class of emerging, global and GRAMMY-nominated artists as he debuts his highly anticipated album, COSMIC, streaming on Apple Music right now.

In an exclusive interview with Beats 1, the 20-year-old singer described the Apple Music honor: “It’s really exciting. Things have been moving really fast. After a year of work and putting everything in order we’re here and it feels really good.” Tune in to Beats 1 right now to hear the full interview.

Additionally, on Friday, May 4, Apple Music will release a special short film featuring Bazzi as well as a brand new acoustic performance video of his hit single “Mine.”

Apple Music’s journey with Bazzi began last summer when the service’s Pop Curator Arjan Timmermans came across Bazzi while browsing Instagram. From there, Apple Music fully championed Bazzi throughout the service from radio and playlists to Beats 1. In October 2017, Apple Music was the first streaming platform to debut “Mine,” which quickly skyrocketed after placement on the popular Today’s Hits and A-List: Pop playlists. By January 2018, Bazzi held the #1 spot across all Apple Music Pop playlists.

“Bazzi’s fine sense of melody and honest storytelling capture a singular, genre-defying vision that is truly one of a kind,” said Timmermans. “He is without a doubt one of the biggest and most important new pop artists to emerge in 2018.”

This spring Bazzi will join Camilla Cabello as a special guest on the singer’s sold-out Never Be The Same Tour.

“When I first listened to ‘Mine’, it stood out from everything that was out- it sounded so honest and original and coming straight from his heart,” Cabello said. “I listened to all of his songs after that and was hooked! I think he has such an original style and it sounds so effortless for him. I think he’s a breath of fresh air in pop music and it’s been so amazing to introduce him to my fans on tour.”
