The track appears on Sting & Shaggy’s collaborative album 44/876 (Cherrytree/A&M/Interscope Records), which to date has spent sixteen weeks atop Billboard’s Reggae chart. Watch the video HERE.

Set in Miami and inspired by the hilarity and hijinks of classic buddy-cop TV shows and films, the light-hearted video sees the pair playing detectives reporting to their police Captain (Bauer) and partnering up for a host of frenzied action and stunts on a mission to find Roxy, a dangerous fugitive, in an exhilarating visual that encapsulates the spirit of the duo’s compelling and dynamic partnership.

The track, co-produced by Teflon (Wyclef Jean, Fat Joe, Ruff Ryders) and Martin Kierszenbaum (Sting, Mylène Farmer, Lady Gaga), appears on Sting and Shaggy’s chart-topping, island-inspired album, 44/876 (Cherrytree/A&M/Interscope Records), which debuted at #1 in Germany and has reached Gold status in both France and Poland.

Jaden Smith’s “Goku”

Multitalented visionary JADEN SMITH unleashes a brand new single entitled “GOKU” today.

Get it HERE!

Over a barrage of unpredictable electronic production, JADENS flow transitions from hyper-charged verses into the hypnotic and hard-hitting hook, “I feel like I’m GOKU. Named after the hero of Dragonball-Z, the track veers in and out of thick percussion before storming towards this anthemic chant. This brash and bold banger moves at the frenetic breakneck pace of the anime with which it shares its name. If you close your eyes and listen, it’s as cinematic as it is catchy. It’s the perfect follow up to Jaden’s club banger, “GHOST”.

PETE YORN x SCARLETT JOHANSSON

Today, Pete Yorn & Scarlett Johansson share the music video for their latest single “Iguana Bird.” Watch it HERE.

Directed by actress, producer, and filmmaker Bonnie Wright (best known for her role as Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter series), the clip serves as the perfect visual companion to the song. “Pete Yorn and Scarlett Johansson’s new single ‘Iguana Bird’ evoked for me that new loneliness you feel in the wake of a break up, having spent every moment with someone you now have to create new memories that feel forced and out of touch with what you know,” Wright told PAPER about the track. “I was inspired by the dance scene in Jean Luc-Godard’s film ‘Bande å part’, most particularly Anna Karina’s character, and the vulnerable beauty often explored in French cinema during the 60s. I have been an admirer of LA-based choreographer and dancer Nicola Collie for a while and it was such a joy to direct her in this enclosed world we created for the music video.”

“I have been a fan of Bonnie’s work,” Yorn says about working with Wright. “She came to us with a visual concept that really captured the emotion behind the song in an original way.”

The song remains a standout from the pair’s critically acclaimed Apart EP, available at all digital retailers now via Capitol Records. Forbes praised the “fun” track, while High Snobiety called it a “charming duet carried by a wave of crashing guitars.”

Last month, Yorn launched An Evening with Pete Yorn, the You and Me Tour. The critically acclaimed gold-certified singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist performs along the East Coast and Midwest on the intimate run. Tickets for the remaining dates, including limited edition options to purchase VIP backstage experiences where fans can meet Pete, watch soundcheck and even attend a pre-show performance of a song in the dressing room, are on sale now. Full routing can be found below and visit PeteYorn.com for more details.

Apart continues to incite applause from fans and critics alike. In an extensive feature, Entertainment Weekly claimed, “The dreamy alt-pop on the new EP demonstrates that the creative kinship between the troubadour and the movie star is much closer than you might expect.”
