ABOUT ARIANA GRANDE

With her powerful vocals and astonishing range, Ariana Grande has emerged as one of the most magnetic and massively successful performers in pop music today. At age 24 she’s delivered three platinum-selling albums and surpassed 18 billion streams, in addition to nabbing four Grammy Award nominations and landing eight hits in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. With 2016’s critically acclaimed Dangerous Woman, Grande both boldly defies expectation and reveals the full force of her voice (recently hailed as an “extraordinary, versatile, limitless instrument” upon Grande’s appearance on Time’s “100 Most Influential People” list).

Since making her full-length debut with 2013’s Yours Truly (featuring the game-changing, triple-platinum smash “The Way”), Grande has brought her striking vocal presence to a genre-blurring breed of pop, taking on R&B, soul, and electronic music with equal nuance and assurance. Arriving in 2014, her sophomore effort, My Everything, garnered a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album and spawned the 6x-platinum hits “Problem” and “Bang Bang” (a Grammy nominee for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance). Grande embraced a more uncompromising vision than ever before in the making of Dangerous Woman. With People noting that the album “celebrates feminine might,” Entertainment Weekly praised Grande for “having something meaningful to say with that jaw-dropping voice — one of the most exquisite in pop today.” Grande wrapped up her widely lauded Dangerous Woman Tour in support of the album last year, performing 85 arena shows worldwide.

Through the years, the longtime actress and former Broadway star has proven the scope of her talent by appearing on Scream Queens and Hairspray Live! and showcased her comedic chops by hosting Saturday Night Live. With her social media following now surging past 200 million, Grande has also earned numerous accolades from the MTV Video Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards, and American Music Awards (including the highly coveted Artist of the Year prize).

Ariana’s recent single “No Tears Left To Cry” debuted at #1 on iTunes in 88 countries worldwide and began the next era for her upcoming fourth full length studio album Sweetener.  With the release of “Not Tears Left To Cry” she became the first artist in music history to see the lead single from her first four albums debut on the Top 10 on Billboard Hot 100.  This year she has graced the prestigious magazine covers of TIME’s Next Generation Leaders, FADER, and British Vogue.  The highly anticipated album, Sweetener, will be released Summer 2018.

SOCIAL HOUSE RELEASE DEBUT SINGLE

anta Monica, California, June 8, 2018 – Social House, the Pittsburgh native musicians, writers and producers, release their debut single “Magic In The Hamptons Ft. Lil Yachty” today, June 8th, via all http://smarturl.it/MagicInTheHamptons.  Listen to “Magic In The Hamptons Ft. Lil YachtyHERE.

Signed to SB Projects/Interscope Records, a joint venture between Scooter Braun’s SB Projects and Interscope, Social House features creatives Michael “Mikey” Foster and Charles “Scootie” Anderson who have written and produced songs for prominent artists ranging from Ariana Grande to the recent Jennifer Lopez track “Dinero Ft. DJ Khaled & Cardi B.” Produced by Mikey and Scootie, “Magic In The Hamptons Ft. Lil Yachty” also features production by multi-platinum producer Tommy Brown.

When the duo first moved to Los Angeles, Mikey and Scootie spent weeks couch surfing, finding themselves among other scrappy yet determined artists, in a highly social and creative environment that became their fraternity, family, party spot, studio and home. During a session at home, Mikey and Scootie decided to, for the first time, create a track for themselves. In that moment, Social House was born.

Social House has produced songs that range from a dark, urban feel to more upbeat rhythmic-pop, with their creative lifestyle shining through the feel-good character of their music that explores the diverse influences in their innovative production style.
