CYM Releases “Karma,” First Single from Long-Awaited Second EP “Love CYM”

Today, rising R&B singer and songwriter CYM announced the release of her new single, “Karma.” The song was officially released on October 9th and will mark CYM’s first single from her upcoming EP, Love CYM set to launch late December 2019. It was produced by Grammy-winning duo Ayo N Keyz (Cardi B, Chris Brown, Jaden Smith).

“I am so excited about my new single ‘Karma’ and wanted to reconnect with my loyal fans while showing a different aspect of my creativity. I had the opportunity to work on this single with Ayo N Keyz to help me bring my vision for this song to life. The song is about pent up anger and frustration from a relationship that felt one-sided with no reciprocity. Writing this song was cathartic because it was coming from personal experience, and I know so many people can relate to moving on from bad relationships on to something better,” says CYM.

CYM first burst on the scene in the summer of 2016. Her infectious hit Bombs Away was released with much fanfare. The accompanying music/video received thousands of streams on YouTube and plays on Soundcloud as well as spins from radio stations around the country. The success of Bombs Away earned CYM an opening spot on Tory Lanez’, “I Told You” tour. Her debut album Shadows developed in collaboration with K Mack, Liana Banks, Yobo, J-Dot and Rocc featured songs inspired by her musical tastes. It possesses references to pop, R&B, Latin and Caribbean music. Critics praised CYM’s previous single, “Gun Play,” featuring Rich Homie Quan for its trap-infused beat with a twist of pop.

Ayo N Keyz asserts, “When we first heard CYM’s vocals on Shadows, we knew she had something different to offer. Few talents today have the ability to fuse musical genres with such ease. When the opportunity presented itself to collaborate on Love CYM, we jumped on it. We were thrilled to be part of the process and can’t wait for people to hear this exciting new sound.” For more information, please follow @iamcym on Instagram.

ARMIN VAN BUUREN × NE-YO

AIM FOR THE SOUL WITH NEW ‘BALANCE’ COLLAB: ‘UNLOVE YOU

Just one week before the release of Armin van Buuren’s seventh artist album, a huge collab emerges as the most recent single to come off of ‘Balance’. A monumental link-up with none other than R&B/pop superstar NE-YO, ‘Unlove You’ sees the seminal artists explore the subject of a recognizable post-breakup dilemma in their own unique way.

A collaboration as eye-popping as it is ear-catching, ‘Unlove You’ delivers its lyrical message with pinpoint accuracy whilst sporting a club-tinged groove that can do no wrong. With killers vocals, pounding beats and recognizable lyrics that aim straight for the soul, this track shows that being open-minded unlocks a whole new world of possibilities. The track was also produced by award-winning producers Jesse ‘Corporal’ Wilson and Tearce Kizzo.

Armin van Buuren: “Part of the beauty of having no limitations at all in the studio is that I get to work with the most talented people no matter what ‘genre’ they’re in, and NE-YO is no exception. It’s an honor to have worked together. We both built a legacy in our own respective scenes, and I’m grateful we were able to bridge the gap between them through ‘Unlove You’.”

NE-YO: “I already loved this song because of its subject matter, as it’s familiar territory. But Armin’s musical interpretation takes it to a whole other level. The energy is contagious!”

Throughout his more than a decade long career, NE-YO has proven himself to be as powerful with his pen as he is in the recording studio and on stage. The Las Vegas native, born Shaffer Smith, quickly became known as a go-to hitmaker, penning bangers like Rihanna’s ‘Unfaithful’, ‘Russian Roulette’ and ‘Take a Bow’, Beyonce’s 2006 breakup anthem ‘Irreplaceable’, and Mario’s sugary breakout single ‘Let Me Love You’. His first single, 2005’s ‘So Sick’, soared to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, and was certified quadruple platinum. Since then, the triple Grammy winner has racked up a collection of hits, including stream bombs such as ‘Sexy Love’, ‘Closer’, ‘Because of You’ and ‘Miss Independent’.

Prior to the release of the full ‘Balance’ album on October 25, Armin van Buuren already released a handful of new tracks from the album. Previously, fans got a taste of the album through ‘Waking Up With You’ (feat. David Hodges), ‘Mr. Navigator’ (with Tempo Giusto), ‘It Could Be’ (with Inner City), ‘High On Your Love’ (feat. James Newman), ‘Don’t Let Me Go’ (feat. Matluck) and ‘All Comes Down’ (feat. Cimo Fränkel). And now, with the release of ‘Unlove You’ and the fact that there are only seven days to come until the album launch, the wait is almost over.

NE-YO XMAS ALBUM

Purchase Another Kind Of Christmas HERE 

 

Today, NE-YO released Another Kind Of Christmas (Motown Records/Compound Entertainment), his first-ever holiday album. The three-time GRAMMY® winner brings his own unique point-of-view to the season with five newly-penned tracks and reimagined versions of thoughtfully-selected Christmas classics – including “Someday At Christmas,” a plea for peace written by Motown songwriters Ron Miller and Bryan Wells for Stevie Wonder during the Vietnam War, and Marvin Gaye’s “I Want To Come Home For Christmas,” inspired by the plight of prisoners of war.

 

“NE-YO says, of the album “see you this Holiday season and every holiday season after! Think you’re gonna love it that much!”

 

“Just Ain’t Christmas” candidly captures the pain of a Christmas Eve break-up while the playful double entendres of “Open Mine Tonight” celebrate what goes down after the kids go to bed. “Talk About It” evokes childhood Christmas memories, complete with the inevitable family dramas that unfold – “somebody gon’ fight, somebody gon’ cry, somebody gon’ try to leave/Then they gon’ squash it all right before it’s time to eat.” NE-YO, Satori and Dre Island each take a verse on the reggae-influenced “Christmas Vibez,” which imagines a tropical holiday getaway for two. Other guest artists include Candice Boyd on “Carol Of The Bells” and RaVaughn on “Someday At Christmas.”

 

NE-YO puts his stamp on such standards as Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas,” “Merry Christmas Baby,” originally recorded by Johnny Moore’s Three Blazers, and “The Christmas Song,” which was written by Robert Wells and Mel Tormé and first recorded by the Nat King Cole Trio. He recorded Another Kind Of Christmas in Montego Bay, Jamaica with longtime collaborator Curtis “Sauce” Wilson producing many of the tracks.

 

NE-YO has sold a cumulative 20+ million adjusted albums worldwide. He has won three GRAMMY® awards and been honored with a total of 14 nominations, His first single, 2005’s “So Sick,” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was certified quadruple Platinum. Since then, he has racked up a collection of hit singles – including “Sexy Love,” “Closer,” “Because of You,” “Miss Independent” and “Push Back” featuring Bebe Rexha and Stefflon Don. Three of his albums have entered SoundScan’s Top Current Albums chart at No. 1.

 

He has proven to be as powerful with his pen as he is in the recording studio and on stage. The Las Vegas native quickly became known as a go-to hitmaker, penning bangers like Rihanna’s “Unfaithful,” “Russian Roulette,” and “Take a Bow,” along with Beyoncé’s 2006 breakup anthem “Irreplaceable” and songs for such artists as Jennifer Hudson, Usher, Carrie Underwood, Celine Dion, among others. NE-YO’s film and television credits include “Save the Last Dance,” “World of Dance,” “Battle: Los Angeles,” “Stomp the Yard,” George Lucas’ “Red Tails,” “Empire,” “The Wiz Live!” and “Step Up: High Water.”
