Maryland bred singer-songwriter Landon Cube releases his new single “Makeup” today.
Listen to “Makeup”: HERE
“Makeup,” which is packed with emotion and reflection, is the singer’s first single with Republic Records. The track follows his previously released tracks “Round n Round” feat. Sprite Lee (15+ million streams), “Drive My Car” (14+ million streams) and “19” (9+ million streams). He also appeared on Lil Skies’ “Nowadays” and “RedRoses,” which both garnered over 250 million streams individually. There’s a poignant yet feel-good vibe that makes 21-year-old recording artist Landon Cube’s sound infectious. The Southern Maryland native has a diverse history within music, punctuated by his versatile catalog. With Landon’s new single “Makeup,” the young star on the rise is geared to level up to the next chapter in his career. At 16, he made the firm decision that music was his chosen trajectory and once he graduated high school, he dropped his introductory cut “Euphoria.” His participation with local viral video crew Cufboys added fuel to the fire, as Landon began galvanizing a fan base through his laid-back authenticity and knack for melding sounds. Through Cufboys he met burgeoning star Lil Skies, as the two joined forces on cuts like “Red Roses” and “Nowadays,” the former impressively hitting one million streams in less than a month. It wasn’t long before Landon was Los Angeles bound and continued his upward mobility as an artist, ultimately joining the Republic Records roster. Landon Cube, who already has over 4 million monthly listeners on Spotify, has already secured a solid following based upon his honest and heartfelt music, and the next phase in his career will bring more of that to the forefront.

Puerto Rican singer and songwriter Kim Viera releases her brand new single “Here For Ya” today in both English and Spanglish.
Listen to “Here For Ya”: HERE
The track is powered by a throwback beat and sultry production, building toward a seismic and soaring refrain carried by Kim’s powerhouse voice. The two versions in English and Spanglish speak to her worldwide appeal.
In many ways, Kim Viera was destined to merge cultures in her music. Growing up of Puerto Rican descent in an artist-friendly New York household, her parents both worked in the entertainment industry. Dad launched, owned, and operated a live production company, and Mom could be heard as a backup singer for Willie Colon, Ruben Bladés, and more. Yearly vacations in Puerto Rico represented that balance as the travel mixtape spanned Selena, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, La India, Sia, Brandy, and Whitney Houston. A vocal powerhouse, she made her introduction on viral hits alongside YouTube mega-star Kurt Schneider in between writing for superstars such as Lil Wayne. In 2016, she landed a major label deal with Republic Records and made waves by contributing “Tribe” to the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for Pitch Perfect 3. This anthem quickly clocked 1.8 million Spotify streams. Along the way, she honed her “American Latina” style and set fire with her single “Como” feat. Daddy Yankee. It exploded as an international smash with 40.8 million cumulative streams and counting, while the music video surpassed 24 million views in under a year. Meanwhile, she garnered acclaim from Billboard and NPR who pegged it among “Our Favorite Latin Songs This Week,” upon release, setting the stage for her 2019 anthem “Here For Ya.”

LOGIC MAKES HISTORY AS DEBUT NOVEL SUPERMARKET DEBUTS AT #1 ON NEW YORK TIMES PAPERBACK FICTION BEST-SELLER LIST – FIRST-EVER BY A HIP-HOP ARTIST
SUPERMARKET SOUNDTRACK DEBUTS AT #6 ON ALTERNATIVE CHART – A FIRST IN LOGIC’S MULTI-FACETED CAREER
Grammy nominated, multi-platinum, pop culture multi-hyphenate artist Logic (aka Bobby Hall) makes history once again, becoming the first-ever hip-hop MC to author a New York Times fiction bestseller, as his debut novel SUPERMARKET (Simon & Schuster, publication date March 26th) officially tops today’s prestigious Paperback Fiction list at #1. The novel, which held on to #1 retail at Amazon and Barnes & Noble all week, has been described as a fresh, funny, and deliciously dark thriller that stands on its own as a propulsive and entertaining excursion into madness and creativity, cementing Logic’s flair for cinematic storytelling.
At the same time, Logic’s accompanying SUPERMARKET “soundtrack” album, simultaneously released March 26th via via Def Jam Recordings/ Visionary Music Group, debuts at #6 this week on the Billboard Alternative Album chart, an ‘Alt’ chart first for Logic. Exploring new genres, the melodic soundtrack presents a guitar-driven, live band sound, as Logic teams with acclaimed multi-instrumentalist and producer Mac DeMarco on several tracks.
Logic’s April triple-play is rounded out by an explosive new single and video released last week, “Confessions Of a Dangerous Mind,” the title track from his upcoming fifth studio album, release details to be announced in the weeks ahead. In its first week out, “Confessions Of a Dangerous Mind” has accumulated nearly 20 million streams, and 10 million collective views of the video.
SUPERMARKET and the forthcoming CONFESSIONS OF A DANGEROUS MIND follow-up YSIV (September 2018), the fourth chapter of Logic’s Young Sinatra saga. Logic galvanized the MTV VMA audience last summer with his impactful performance of the album’s first advance single “One Day” featuring Ryan Tedder and over 200 immigrant children, their siblings and parents. View the live performance HERE.
Prior to YSIV, Logic debuted at #1 Soundscan with his breakout third album Everybody (May 2017), containing the RIAA 5x-platinum single “1-800-273-8255” (National Suicide Prevention Lifeline) featuring fellow Def Jam artist Alessia Cara and Khalid. The song catapulted Logic to worldwide acclaim as it brought mental health and suicide prevention awareness to the critical conversation. It earned Logic two Grammy® Award nominations – including Song Of The Year – and a triumphant closing performance at the 2018 Grammy® Awards (Watch Here).
In the interim, Logic dropped his Bobby Tarantino II mixtape in March 2018, which rocketed to a #1 album chart debut. BTII spun off the RIAA gold Top 10 singles “44 More” and “Everyday” (featuring Philadelphia DJ-producer Marshmello), and also boasted features from A-list heavies 2 Chainz, Big Sean, and Wiz Khalifa. In June 2018, Logic kicked off a massive 33-city North American summer amphitheater and arena tour, including such major venues as New York’s Madison Square Garden, PNE Amphitheatre in Vancouver, and the Forum in Los Angeles.
Multi-platinum, Grammy Nominated artist Logic (aka Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, aka Bobby Hall) – among the top streaming artists in the world with billions of streams to date – burst onto the music scene through a series of mixtapes that led to a significant, rabid underground fan base. Those tapes – Young, Broke, and Infamous (2010); Young Sinatra (2011); Young Sinatra: Undeniable (2012); and Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever (2013) – garnered millions of downloads and streams. They jumpstarted a worldwide tour that led up to his record deal with Def Jam Recordings in 2014, and the release of his debut album Under Pressure that year. Logic kept up the pace with his second album, The Incredible True Story (2015, with the RIAA gold “Fade Away”), followed by Everybody (2017), containing the landmark 5x-platinum “1-800-273-8255” (National Suicide Prevention Lifeline) featuring Alessia Cara and Khalid. Overlapping Logic’s albums were new mixtapes Bobby Tarantino(2016, with the RIAA gold “Flexicution”), and Bobby Tarantino II (2018, with the RIAA gold tracks “44 More” and “Everyday”). YSIV (September 2018), the fourth chapter of his Young Sinatra saga, contained “One Day” which Logic performed with Ryan Tedder and over 200 immigrant children, their siblings and parents at the MTV VMAs. 2019 kicked off with the publication in March of SUPERMARKET (Simon & Schuster), the debut novel written by Bobby Hall, which entered the New York Times Paperback Fiction bestseller list at #1 – first-ever for a hip-hop artist. It was accompanied by the SUPERMARKET“soundtrack” album, which debuted inside the Top 10 on the BillboardAlternative Album chart, an ‘Alt’ chart first for Logic.
