Hot Girl Summer, Megan Thee Stallion, Nicki Minaj, Ty Dolla $ign, 360 MAGAZINE

Hot Girl Summer

“Megan Thee Stallion is at the forefront of the ‘Women’s Rap Renaissance!'”360 MAGAZINE

“This is the year of the ‘hot girl summer’ ”  NBC NEWS


“The lifestyle choice of summer 2019: Hot Girl Summer.” –HUFFINGTON POST


“If you’ve logged onto Twitter or swiped through your Instagram at any point this summer, you’ve definitely seen a post declaring it’s a hot girl summer. The now-ubiquitous phrase, a call to live your most confident and unapologetic life, was coined in the early months of the season by Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion.” – TIME MAGAZINE


“Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion, and her definitive tweet that this season is made for hot girls, made the phrase the season’s most ubiquitous meme, an internet-wide catchphrase.” – WIRED


“Her power lies directly in her self-confidence, honesty, and unmitigated desire to dominate-and not just when it comes to life itself; these qualities pour through her music.” – COMPLEX


“[Megan Thee Stallion] exudes a confidence of an artist that has been mastering the game for at least a decade.” –BILLBOARD


“Her music is unapologetically Southern, with her thick Houston accent bouncing effortlessly over sensual and bare trap beats, allowing her lyricism and delivery to shine through.” –ROLLING STONE


“If you don’t know the name Megan Thee Stallion, you will soon: she’s one of the fastest rising rappers and finds herself rooted in a pop culture moment that’s all about the yeehaw agenda, country-trap and sex-positive messaging.” – PASTE

If one thing is clear, Megan Thee Stallion owns Summer 2019! The Houston based MC and cultural icon, Megan Thee Stallion, continues her hot girl hot streak today with the release of new single, “Hot Girl Summer” feat. Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign. The single boasts production from hip-hop icon Juicy J and features a sample from the hit City Girls’ song “Act Up.” The track is named after the biggest cultural phenomenon of 2019, established by Megan, known as #HOTGIRLSUMMER. The phrase and viral meme not only encompasses everything Megan stands for but has also become a rallying cry for men and women around the world and is catapulting Megan into a household name.

When explaining #HOTGIRLSUMMER Megan states, “it’s just about women and men being unapologetically them, just having a good-ass time, hyping up your friends, doing you, not giving a damn about what nobody gotta say about it.”

Megan has had a monumental year that includes this week’s digital cover of PAPER Magazine, a print cover of The FADER’s Summer issue, being named as one of XXL Magazine’s 2019 Freshman, a late-night TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and multiple radio hits such as “Cash Shit” and “Big Ole Freak.” Her critically-acclaimed project Fever has been praised by the likes of Rolling Stone, The Fader, XXL, Billboard, Pitchfork, Paper, and more.

Beyond being a successful rapper, Megan is currently a college student, environmental activist, philanthropist, Chance the Rapper’s occasional dietary consultant, and life coach for the world at large. Megan has hosted beauty pageants that award scholarships to “hotties” who also happen to be students, organized the first “Hottie Beach Clean Up” in Los Angeles, and still has time to regularly spread the word of hot girl summer on social media. With each move she makes she continues to set herself apart as the most unique, inspirational, and driven artist out right now, so it’s no wonder she can count Kylie Jenner, Drake, Jada Pinkett Smith, Nicki Minaj, etc. as some of her fans.

Due to climate change, hot girl summer will be continuing well into the Fall when Megan joins Meek Mill and Future for their North American Legendary Nights Tour with YG and Mustard (select tour dates below)., but for now she shows no signs of slowing down. Stay tuned for more news as #HOTGIRLSUMMER is far from over!

Yoshi Flower releases New Song and Video

Yoshi Flower comes back with the latest track “Validation”, out now on Rock Mafia/Interscope Records. Earlier this year Paper Magazine named Yoshi Flower as one of their 100 names worth getting to know in advance. Check out the video shot in Southern California, HERE

The up-tempo, electronic/trap tune begins with Yoshi delicately singing “you’re so beautiful to me, can’t you see,” however, the song is not as sweet as his voice sounds. His lyrics debate the constant feeling we seek out more than ever in the era of social media – “validation.” Although the internet allows us to easily connect with others and access endless information, the dark side can be unsettling. Yoshi goes on to sing “I just spent a ticket on these new dress clothes, you’re not impressed though…just searching for validation…” The nostalgic visual, directed by Alex McDonnell, serves as a metaphor for how everything comes full circle. We’re all on a constant ride of wanting acceptance from one another. Yoshi ends the track the way he began, singing, “but you don’t need no validation. Baby ‘cause, you’re so beautiful to me, can’t you see.”

Last year Yoshi Flower signed to Interscope Records, released his debut mixtape titled, American Raver, toured with blackbear, Elohim, SG Lewis and opened for Dua Lipa. This year, he played his first 5-city headline tour, a string of showcases at SXSW and just last week, wrapped up a sold-out tour opening for K-Rap group, Epik High. Additionally, he released “Dirty Water,” which premiered on HYPEBEAST and led to L’Officiel calling the track a “demonstrative of Flower’s ability to transcend multiple genres of music, as he continues to elevate his eclectic sound by blending hip hop with electronic-pop, creating music that is not only of the moment but is uniquely his.” Yoshi continues to work on new music and is set to play Lollapalooza in August.

Zucker and Cutler To Release brent

JEREMY ZUCKER AND CHELSEA CUTLER TO RELEASE brent ON MAY 3RD

“you were good to me” OUT NOW

LISTEN HERE

“a pop power duo” – PAPER Magazine

Singers, songwriters and producers Jeremy Zucker and Chelsea Cutler are surprising their fans with an extended play titled brent, releasing on May 3rd. Their new single, “you were good to me,” is out now—watch the video HERE!

In just three days, “you were good to me” amassed more than one million Spotify streams and is currently featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday, It’s A Hit and Pop Rising playlists. brent was written and recorded by Zucker and Cutler in a remote cabin in upstate Connecticut last December. Read their letter to their fans announcing brent HERE!

When Jeremy Zucker and Chelsea Cutler joined forces for “you were good to me,” it was much more than two rising stars combining their natural-born talents; it was two friends sharing their personal conversations (set to music) with the rest of the world. Over the past few years, Zucker has galvanized a dedicated fan base with his early independently-released EPs and continued with his breakout singles “talk is overrated” ft. blackbear in 2017 and “all the kids are depressed” in 2018. He’s continued his upward mobility by outdoing himself with “comethru,” which has reached a staggering 80 million Spotify streams and 35 million video views. Meanwhile, Cutler has become a force, starting with a series of covers on Soundcloud that gave way to her own self-written and self-produced work, like 2017’s “Your Shirt,” which cracked the Spotify charts with over 62 million streams, and her two-part Sleeping With Roses mixtape series in 2018. Both artists have been paving the way in their respective lanes; however, their union was serendipitous, happening in 2016 at a college neither of them attended: The University of Connecticut. Fast forward three years and two signings with Republic Records, there was no better time to make music together. Returning to a cabin in Connecticut where they first collaborated on their duet single “better off,” Zucker and Cutler wrote and recorded “you were good to me,” a reflective piece on lost love.

BMI STAGE SCHEDULE – SATURDAY, AUGUST 4th

GRACE WEBER | 1:00-1:40pm

“A talented artist who knows how to move you and your body with soulful grooves and real AF lyrics.” – Okayplayer

GRAMMY Award-winner Grace Weber is a star on the rise. An accomplished singer/songwriter, Weber collaborated with Chance the Rapper and Kanye West, co-writing and singing on “All We Got,” the opening track of Chance’s GRAMMY-winning Coloring Book. Her singles, “More Than Friends” and “Elated,” shot to the top of Spotify’s charts, and her performance at SXSW was compared to a “religious experience” byNylon. Beyond her flourishing success, Weber is the cofounder of The Music Lab, Inc, a non-profit organization that provides free music education, career preparation and performance programs to high-school students in her hometown of Milwaukee.

DAVIE | 2:10 – 2:50pm

“There are many types of musicians; some look good, some move good, some are great songwriters, some are great singers. DAVIE is all of these. He has a sound that fits next to the biggest names in contemporary R&B and that can hang comfortably with the giants of the genre’s past, all the way back to his hero, James Brown.” – Ticketmaster Insider

Inspired by the passion of vintage soul and the emotional uplift of gospel, New Jersey native DAVIE cut his musical teeth singing in churches in a traveling gospel band. His vocal prowess led him to Los Angeles, where he found work singing back-up for artists like Chris Brown, Cee-Lo Green and Childish Gambino. But it wasn’t until he went back to the churches of his youth that he found the key to unlock his own path. His debut EP, Black Gospel Vol.1, is filled with both Davie’s fiery spiritual passion and the celebratory energy of contemporary R&B, making the euphoria his songs can generate palpable.

BONES (UK) | 3:20 – 4:00pm

“This is Trent Reznor-level cool. BONES is doing the whole damn thing, middle fingers to the sky and in full control of their work. Rock on.” —NYLON

To hear them explain it, British duo BONES (UK) is “leading the charge of taking rock’n’roll firmly into the 31st century.” Comprised of vocalist Rosie Bones and guitarist Carmen Van Den Berg, the band has already racked up some serious cred to back up their claim. After hearing an early gig by the duo in London’s Camden Town, rock legend Jeff Beck asked Bones and Van Den Berg to collaborate—as both co-writers and players—on his 2016 album Loud Hailer. After gaining a massive following off of singles “Beautiful is Boring” and “Girls Can’t Play Guitar,” it’s easy to see why they have caught the attention and toured with the likes of: Highly Suspect, Band of Skulls, KOOKS, PVRIS, Skunk Anansie and Miyavi.

MELVV | 4:30 – 5:10pm

“[Melvv] has been thrilling listeners with his jazzed-up dance music for years now…continuing to cement his status as a dynamic provocateur.” – Dancing Astronaut

Melvv is the artist project of Milwaukee, WI producer/DJ Jeffrey Melvin. He started producing music at age 12 after being inspired by a video of Daft Punk’s 2007 Paris concert. Melvv is currently signed to Atlantic Records and has a new EP releasing in the fall, which he will be performing at his Lolla Set.

MORGXN | 5:40 – 6:20pm

“Morgxn captivated fans with his infectious pop musicality that’s expertly infused with deeply personal, complex yet relatable lyrics. It’s in this honesty, vulnerability, and authenticity that morgxn’s music resonates and connects with his legion of fans.” -Ones to Watch

morgxn, at age 8, became the youngest member of the Nashville Symphony Choir, and at age 9 penned his fist song “I’ll Always Be There for You.” morgxn decamped from Nashville to Los Angeles, in order to find “space to think, breathe, and be with myself.” While at a party he was asked if he wanted to meet Stevie Nicks, who sagely told the young songwriter, “You have to keep moving. This world will walk all over you if you don’t just keep going.” This advice changed morgxn’s life and his career. His debut album inspired by loss, Vital, is filled with cascading synth-scapes and cool beats, celebrating the emotional complexities of the human condition. His breakout single, “Home,” has earned nearly 7 million Spotify streams, and even inspired a partnership with The Covenant House, a charity for young runaways.

VERA BLUE | 6:50 – 7:30pm

“There are many things we can be grateful to Australia for…but topping the list must be new alt-pop queen Vera Blue, who is undoubtably on the path to world domination.” – Paper Magazine

Vera Blue is an Australian singer/songwriter who started off playing acoustic folk music before adding lush, sultry electronic elements to broaden her sound. The results are sometimes gentle, sometimes ferocious and always show-stopping, with her commanding vocals front and center. After some crucial collabs with artists like Illy and Slumberjack, she released her EP Fingertips in 2016, followed by her debut album Perennial the following year. Response to both her recorded work and live shows have been rapturous.
