Gwen Stefani – 15th Anniversary

After achieving global success as a performer, songwriter and frontwoman for No Doubt, Gwen Stefani released her first solo album – Love.Angel.Music.Baby. – on November 23, 2004. To celebrate the 15th anniversary of its release, the album has been remastered by five-time GRAMMY® nominee Chris Gehringer (Rihanna, Drake, Lady Gaga) of Sterling Sound. Interscope Records will release Love.Angel.Music.Baby. – 15th Anniversary Edition in digital format on November 22.

Stefani, a three-time GRAMMY® winner, will perform a medley of songs from Love.Angel.Music.Baby. on the Top 11 live results show of “The Voice” airing Tuesday, November 26 at 8pm ET/PT on NBC. She is now in her fourth season as a coach on the Emmy®-winning NBC series. Today, Stefani reissued two items from the original Love.Angel.Music.Baby merchandise collection – a hoodie and a t-shirt, both including a digital download of the remastered album. They are now available at www.shopus.gwenstefani.com

Hailed as “an irresistible party” by Rolling Stone and a “ferocious declaration of independence” by Q Magazine, Love.Angel.Music.Baby. is an exuberant reinvention of the music that influenced Stefani in her youth – a genre-spanning work that encompasses new wave, hip hop, electropop, soul and more. The album has sold more than 15 million units worldwide to date. It is certified Platinum or greater in 10 countries, including 5x Platinum in the U.S. Love.Angel.Music.Baby. was nominated for two GRAMMY Awards®– Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album – and the first three singles also received GRAMMY® nods.

Stefani addresses her decision to record a solo album on the lead-off track and first single, “What You Waiting For?,” which she wrote with Linda Perry. Produced by Nelle Hooper, the song topped Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart and spent 20 weeks on the Hot 100. “Rich Girl” featuring Eve and produced by Dr. Dre followed. It marked Stefani’s first top 10 entry on the Hot 100 and claimed the No. 1 spot on the UK Official R&B Singles chart.

In six short weeks, The Neptunes-produced “Hollaback Girl” ascended to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, where it spent four consecutive weeks, giving Stefani her first No. 1 single on the chart. “Hollaback Girl” was the first song in history to reach one million digital downloads and topped Billboard’s year end Hot Digital Songs tally in 2005. Views of the accompanying video, directed by Paul Hunter, are nearing 200 million. Driven by the success of “Hollaback Girl,” Love.Angel.Music.Baby. climbed to No. 5 on the Billboard 200 in June 2005. The album spent 78 weeks in total on the tally. Other singles included Cool,” “Luxurious” and “Crash.”

Her follow-up album, 2006’s The Sweet Escape, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and contained the Hot 100 top 10 smash “Wind It Up.” This Is What The Truth Feels Like, Stefani’s third solo effort, entered the Billboard 200 at No. 1 in 2016 and includes her powerful No. 1 single “Used To Love You.” You Make It Feel Like Christmas, her first holiday collection, was released in 2017. To date, she has sold more than 50 million units worldwide.

Stefani will perform at “Christmas at Rockefeller Center” on December 4, airing live on NBC. She will conclude her two-year Las Vegas headlining residency “Gwen Stefani – Just A Girl” at Zappos Theatre at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in May 2020. Tickets are available HERE.

Aidan Cullen, Halsey, Axwell, 360 MAGAZINE, Capitol Music Group

Axwell × Halsey

Acclaimed producer Axwell – of Swedish House Mafia, Axwell/Ingrosso – has remixed Halsey’s new single, “Graveyard.” Released today by Capitol Records, the track is available for download /streaming HERE. View the static video HERE.


Halsey performed “Graveyard” on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” yesterday. View HERE She is nominated for three American Music Awards – Artist of the Year, Favorite Music Video (“Without Me”) and Favorite Song – Pop/Rock (“Without Me”).


“Graveyard” is from Halsey’s new album, Manic, which is set for release on January 17, 2020. Fans who pre-order Manic in digital format will instantly receive “Graveyard” plus her 5x Platinum hit “Without Me” and “clementine.” Exclusive album/merchandise bundles are now available at Halsey’s online store.


Her 15th career Hot 100-charting hit, “Graveyard” has amassed more than 100 million combined global streams. Appearing on 41 New Music Friday playlists, “Graveyard” is the most added track of her career. It has topped Spotify’s Today’s Top Hits playlist. The official video – directed by Anton Tammi (Lykke Li, JIL) and starring Sydney Sweeney (“Euphoria,” Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood) alongside Halsey – racked up more than four million views in the first 48 hours and now has more than 25 million combined views. PAPER likened the video to “a ‘Euphoria’ bonus episode.” Billboard said, “We all need an escape from reality sometimes, and in her new video, Halsey is taking us on the escape of a lifetime.” Check the clip out HERE.


Since 2015, Halsey has amassed over 23 billion streams worldwide and sold more than nine million adjusted albums globally. She has played sold out dates on five continents (including New York City’s Madison Square Garden), been nominated for a GRAMMY® and appeared on a wide variety of magazine covers, including Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan, NYLON, Forbes, Playboy and Billboard. Her 2015 debut album, BADLANDS, was certified Platinum by the RIAA within one year of its release. Halsey claimed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 with 2017’s Platinum-certified hopeless fountain kingdom, which contained such hits as the 2x Platinum “Now or Never” and the 4x Platinum “Bad at Love.”


The success of “Without Me” has made Halsey the first and only female artist to have at least three songs chart on the Billboard Hot 100 for 50 weeks each. Rounding out the trio of songs are the 2x Platinum “Eastside,” her collaboration with Benny Blanco and Khalid, and The Chainsmokers’ 10x Platinum “Closer,” which she featured on. “Without Me” spent two weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 in early 2019, marking her first solo single to reach the top spot. It now ranks as the longest-running Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hit by a female artist of this century. She is the first artist to rank at Nos. 1 and 2 simultaneously on Billboard’s Hot 100 Pop Songs radio airplay chart. In March 2019, Halsey became the first artist in history to replace herself at No. 1 twice on the U.S. Pop Songs Airplay chart when “Without Me” returned to No. 1, bumping “Eastside” from the top spot. “Without Me” is the most-played song of 2019 at U.S. radio. She featured on BTS’ Platinum hit, “Boy With Luv,” and, more recently, alongside Future on “Die for Me,” a track from Post Malone’s new album.


Halsey continues to push creative boundaries, expanding her influence and impact beyond music. After making her film debut in the animated 2018 summer movie Teen Titans GO! as the voice of Wonder Woman, she was seen in A Star is Born, starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. She continues to use her voice to speak up for causes she passionately believes in, including disenfranchised youth, women’s rights, mental health and the LGBTQ community. GLAAD honored her in 2018 as “Outstanding Music Artist.” She recently won the Hal David Starlight Award, presented by the Songwriters Hall of Fame, plus a VMA and two Teen Choice Awards.

Chris Lake × Fisher

By Michelle Pisnoy × Vaughn Lowery

6,000 EDM-loving college students filed into the Shrine Expo Hall Thursday prepared to dance the night away. The floor and balcony were packed as Chris Lake and Fisher took to the stage at their sold out show. Throughout the evening, a horde of fans pulsed to every beat the B2B DJ’s created.

At 10:00 pm, the mob of music lovers got rambunctious in anticipation of their performance. Minutes afterwards, the lights were dimmed and the audience began to cheer. Bright lights flashed, the beat began to intensify and the EDM lovers got even rowdier. Fisher and Chris Lake came out and started to perform mixes of different songs. The duo kept the audience engaged by switching between different beats and songs like “Crowd Control.” As soon as the track commenced, the fans began jumping up and down as well as singing along to the lyrics.

Chris Lake then played hit song, “Turn Off the Lights,” featuring Alexis Roberts. The LED lighting technology was in succinct to every beat of the record. At times, almost blinded the hypersensitive congregation, but they didn’t appear to mind. The night came to a culmination when Fisher played “Losing It.” He added synthetic melodies which made it more enchanting than the studio version. The crowd absolutely lost it, singing at the top of their lungs until the lights turned back on.

Harry Hudson Drops Video For “Just Slide”

Harry Hudson unveiled the video for his latest single “Just Slide” feat. Jaden Smith —watch and share HERE. “Just Slide” was produced by notable producers Mike Dean [Kanye West, JAY-Z, Travis Scott, 2Pac], Jess Jackson [Tyga, Jason Derulo, Chris Brown] and John Ho [Danity Kane, Kimbra]. The video was filmed in Biloxi, MS, Toronto, ON, Salt Lake City, UT and Calabasas, CA while Harry was on his headlining Can Cowboys Cry Tour last fall.

Of the video, Harry says, “It’s a continuation of the Can Cowboys Cry saga with an unexpected and surreal twist. The story will continue in the next chapter of the journey and my next project.”

“Just Slide” sets the stage for new music from Harry Hudson in 2019.

25-year-old “Folk Pop” artist Harry Hudson was born in New Jersey but moved to the west coast at a young age. The singer released his first song, “World Is Gone,” online in 2013. However, during June of that year, Hudson was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and set his career aside to undergo treatment. After eight months of chemotherapy, he overcame the illness in January 2014. Hudson spent the subsequent year rediscovering his inspirations and got to work writing his debut release. Last year, Hudson released Yesterday’s Tomorrow Night, which features his breakout singles, “Yellow Lights” and “Cry For Love,” and blends Hudson’s signature pop Americana sound with folk and rock influences. In support of Yesterday’s Tomorrow Night, Hudson debuted his 16 minute short film, Can Cowboys Cry, featuring his friend and fellow MSFTS member Jaden Smith, as well as his songs “Yellow Lights,” “Cry For Love,” “Gone” and “No Good.” Last fall, Harry embarked on his first ever headlining tour, selling out shows across North America.

T.I. Launches Tech Cypha

This February, Hip-Hop Entrepreneurs are making black history by advancing the technology industry. Clifford Harris Jr, known as “T.I.,” launches a new syndicated investment vehicle called Tech Cypha with business partner Jason Geter and Brandon “BL” Lewis; son of late great boxing promoter and entrepreneur Butch Lewis. Leveraging technologies such as Airbnb, Lyft and Lime through the eyes of hip-hop culture, the team also launched a Los Angeles-based entertainment startup called Culture Genesis. Together, the new collaborative investment strategy allows high-net-worth individuals to participate in trending tech startup deals.

The strategy evolved when Geter and Harris made their first investment 12 years ago into a company called Streetcred.com, a site that allowed fans to go online and share opinions about street culture. While that first deal didn’t work out, Geter and Harris maintained interest in the technology and startup scene to create opportunities for their networks and promote new businesses.

“We learned a lot,” says Harris. “Now, we know where our demographic is.”

For Geter, that demographic is taking advantage of Atlanta’s surging position as a cultural and technological mecca in the United States. Indeed, Atlanta-area startups raised roughly $1.15 billion in 2018, a record for the region, according to data from PitchBook and the National Venture Capital Association.

“Being in the city of Atlanta and with Georgia Tech producing so much talent, and coming from us being within the hip-hop culture, which is always influencing and promoting things, we saw an opportunity,” says Geter. “In the past, we were always looking through the glass window and looking at ways we can participate earlier. And that’s by coming together to pool our resources so we can invest more.”

Through informed mentorship programs and partnerships, Tech Cypha will include using influencers in various fields. Currently, the syndicate includes Lil Duval, Killer Mike, Tamika ‘Tiny’ Harris, Tai Green, Korey Roberson, Stephanie Shirley, and BJ Kerr among others. As an industry leader, Lewis is known for his talent in branding, marketing and partnership deals.

“Often times, we drive technology like social media and apps, but we are never apart of the ownership,” Lewis continues, “Tech Cypha is going to be an investment vehicle looking for promising, early and late-stage startups to invest capital in, assist with marketing and give branding directions. It’s our way of bridging the gap between the culture and technology.”

Jaira Burns Releases “Numb”

Pop artist Jaira Burns (Upscale Music Group/Interscope Records) has just released a brand new song for fans, titled “Numb.” Produced by Thomas Slinger and co-written by Jaira, the mid-tempo track features the singer’s distinct vocals atop a driving pop arrangement. You can listen to “Numb” HERE.

“I love this song for its contrast: The production is so energetic and gives off a party vibe, but the lyrics take on a slightly darker perspective. Sometimes you drink or smoke to temporarily escape reality. This song is for the times when people get faded; not for the reason of having fun, but to feel ‘NUMB’,” says Jaira.

“Numb” marks Jaira’s first single since her contribution to Riot Games’ virtual group K/DA. The quartet debuted their single “POP/STaRS” live during the League of Legends ceremony in Korea last November. The song quickly entered into the top 10 of Billboard’s Pop Digital Song Sales chart and has since amassed a whopping 142M views on Vevo. The project was a fitting end to Jaira’s impressive 2018 where she was named as part of Paper Magazine’s “100 Women Revolutionizing Pop.” With plans to showcase her songwriting abilities, the Pennsylvania native plans to follow up her debut EP, Burn Slow, with new music in 2019.
