Phone Down

2019 is shaping up to be another massive year for Birmingham born, Jamaican reared Stefflon Don who today announces the release of Phone Down (feat Lil Baby).
“I am so excited about the release of Phone Down. This track means a lot to me, it was the song that got me my record deal and to have Baby on it is amazing. I can’t wait for everyone to hear it!” -Stefflon Don
The video will have its broadcast premiere on BET Jams. LISTEN AND WATCH HERE. 
Signed to the esteemed Quality Control Music / Motown in the U.S., Stefflon Don became Apple Music’s Up Next Artist in 2018, was nominated for BET’s Best International Act Award; and was the first ever British female on XXL’s annual Freshman Class.

Mabel Releases Mad Love

This follows the unstoppable success of recent single Don’t Call Me Up which spent 8 weeks in the top 10 (as well as going top 10 globally on Spotify and landing Mabel her first hit around Europe and the US). Off the back of performances on The Graham Norton Show and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Mabel has also been confirmed as the UK’s first ever Youtube Artist On The Rise which was just launched at Piccadilly Circus with a preview of Mad Love. An extensive run of live dates now follows into the end of the year, including Mabel’s UK & European tour with Khalid. 

Thrilling, unapologetic and liberated, Mad Love is an anthem for women to call the shots and talk about exactly what (and who) they want. Written by Mabel alongside Steve Mac and Kamille, the winning trio behind Don’t Call Me Up Mad Love arrives alongside an iconic video directed by Marc Klasfeld, who has previously worked with the likes of Cardi B, Destinys Child, and Jay Z. Watch the video here. The video further showcasing this fierce, increasingly-fearless young woman living out all her wildest pop-star-dreams, but in thoroughly modern, warts-and-all style. 
It’s this extraordinary journey to where she finds herself now that is encapsulated on Mabel‘s debut album, High Expectations: a record – and a state-of-mind, in many ways – that she has worked towards her whole life (even getting the title tattooed phonetically on her neck when she first thought of it two years ago, knowing firmly that it would never change). At just 23-years-old, the twice-Brit-nominated artist has already sold over 3.5 million singles in the UK (three platinum, three gold, and two silver), surpassed 1 billion streams, and sold out the likes of Brixton Academy. Across her formative singles and first long-form project, Ivy To Roses (which also went silver), Mabel has written with startling candour on young love, identity, girl power, and mental health – topics which are taken to greater heights on High Expectations. And on that road to her first record, Mabel‘s music has become a soundtrack for her impassioned young female fanbase, but also for herself on how to turn those vulnerabilities into your advantages. 
“Talking about it really does give you a kind of confidence, Mabel says now, and that’s new for me. If you’re really going to make a record that talks to people you have to sit and pick at old wounds put everything under a microscope. I would’ve loved that from my heroes when I was kid. That dream of pop stars having a perfect life has gone for our generation.
Stripping away music’s artifice while keeping true to its giddiness and excitement is Mabels special gift. Out of some troubling times she has fashioned a sensational, fizzing debut record, a blue-chip British album which can sit proudly on a global stage next to The Weeknd, Ariana, Drake and whatever Queens B and R have in mind for their 2019. In mood, if not exactly in sound, it has some of the complete realisation of early TLC or Aaliyah, had they spent their teenage years in Sweden, Malaga, or the backstreets of West London. The calling card of High Expectations is the brusque, street charm that hides in plain sight among its hooky gloss, and anchors the albumߣs core theme of expectations (those as a woman, of love, of others, and ultimately of yourself.)
“I want to send a positive message to everyone that’s going to listen to it. I’ve gained so much confidence from writing this album and that’s what I want people to take away. Mabel
Now poised to join the pantheon of international pop greats, her tireless energy, positivity and drive were never going to allow Mabel to settle for anything other than High Expectations. In 2019 watch Mabel meet them and keep reaching higher still.

Sunset Season EP, featuring singles “Generation Why” and “Crush Culture”. The EP debuted in November, 2018 to widespread critical acclaim from The FaderBillboard, and Ones To Watch, amongst others. In January, 2019, Conan made his television debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers, before opening for Panic at the Disco! for several shows on their arena tour.

Conan has been featured in Paper Magazine, I-D Magazine, and the Sunday Times.

Catfish And The Bottlemen Release New Song “Fluctuate”

Today, Catfish and The Bottlemen share a brand new song “Fluctuate.”

LISTEN HERE

The second new track from their upcoming album The Balance [out April 26 on Capitol Records], “Fluctuate” aired for the very first time today on long-time supporter Zane Lowe’s World Record on Apple Music’s Beats 1 and is now available as an instant download for fans who pre-order the album.

Before its official release, Catfish and the Bottlemen performed “Fluctuate” live throughout summer 2018 as a preview of new music to come, and the song quickly became a fan-favorite. Audiences can expect to hear more new tracks from The Balance during the band’s upcoming U.S. headline tour which kicks off March 12. Less than an hour after going on sale, their show at Brooklyn Steel in Brooklyn, NY on April 3 sold out. Tickets for the remaining shows are available HERE, and full routing can be found below.

“When I’m writing a new song, the audience is all I really see. I get a vision of them in my head before I properly hear the melody or anything like that,” explains front man Van McCann. “If we put three or four of these songs in the set, it’s going to be so strong. This run of shows we have coming up is just perfect timing, getting the chance to play new songs that go hand in hand with a wild night out.”

“Fluctuate” follows the band’s January single release: “Longshot,” which has amassed over 12.8 million global streams and is rapidly climbing Alternative radio charts. The song also scored Catfish and the Bottlemen their highest UK singles chart placing to date. Together with a string of sold-out UK arena dates, the wild reception to their first new music since 2016’s gold-certified The Ride brings renewed attention to the phenomena of the band’s unassailable ascent in the company of a youthful, ever-growing family of fans.

In the breaks between their electrifying outdoor and festival shows, McCann (vocals, guitars), Johnny Bond (guitars), Robert “Bob” Hall (drums), and Benji Blakeway (bass) recorded The Balance over a 12-month period in the company of Irish producer, Jacknife Lee. It was recorded in two, secluded studios; Grouse Lodge, in Moate, Republic of Ireland, and The Chapel in the countryside of East Lincolnshire. The album was mixed by Craig Silvey.

Bohemian Rhapsody is Queen’s Highest-Charting Album in 38 Years

Forget about the king, it’s good to be QUEEN: the iconic rock band scored its highest-charting album in 38 years with the Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack (Hollywood Records), which surged from No. 25 to No. 3 on The Billboard 200 (a 187% increase) and is currently No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 and Top Rock Albums charts.

In addition, Queen’s Greatest Hits Vol I, II & III: The Platinum Collection rocketed from No. 194 to No. 9. The chart activity follows the film’s November 2nd opening in theaters across the country. 20th Century Fox and Regency Enterprises acclaimed biopic was the No. 1 film at the box office upon its debut with an estimated $50 million in weekend ticket sales.

USA Today said it best: Bohemian Rhapsody is a hit all over again.

Bohemian Rhapsody’s hit-packed companion soundtrack is Queen’s highest-reaching album since 1980, when The Game spent five weeks at No. 1.

Alongside the show-stopping Live Aid performances of Bohemian Rhapsody, Radio Ga Ga, Hammer To Fall, and We Are The Champions, the album features other rare live tracks spanning Queen’s entire career, new versions of old favorites, and a choice selection of the brand’s finest studio recordings. Among them are some of Queen’s biggest hits, including eleven all-time greatest anthems that reached No. 1 around the world.

Rolling Stone called the album more than just a greatest hits, praising it as ‘imaginative way to relive the band’ is genius.

Queen currently has a jaw-dropping 22 songs charting on the Digital Rock Tracks Chart, including 7 of the top 10:

1) Bohemian Rhapsody

5) We Will Rock You

6) Somebody To Love

7) Another One Bites the Dust

8) We Are The Champions

9) Radio Gaga

10) Under Pressure

With record sales estimated at 300 million and counting, Queen remain evergreen rock favorites whose glorious catalog of songs continues to thrill fans of all ages across the globe.

About Bohemian Rhapsody The Film:

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the brand through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound.

DJ Snake ft. Selena Gomez, Ozuna & Cardi B

The official video for “Taki Taki” by DJ Snake featuring Selena Gomez, Ozuna, and Cardi B, directed by Colin Tilley, is out now. A sneak peak of the video first aired tonight in a commercial spot in partnership with YouTube Music during the American Music Awards.

Watch the video HERE.

Currently the most-streamed song in the world on Spotify for a week straight now, “Taki Taki” marks the second global number one record for the French DJ/producer (his first being “Lean On” ft. , his 2015 collaboration with Major Lazer), and a first number one for Selena Gomez, Ozuna, and Cardi B, who is the first female rapper to top the chart.

In addition, “Taki Taki” has peaked as the #2 song in the world on iTunes, and reached #1 on iTunes in 25 countries. Meanwhile, it’s also peaked as the #1 trending video on YouTube in the U.S.

The worldwide smash success of “Taki Taki” was boosted by Spotify’s recent launch of Global X — a new playlist full of rhythmic crossover hits from cultures around the world. Spotify accompanied the playlist’s launch with a unique vertical video for the bilingual, Latin-music-infused “Taki Taki,” which the platform hails as “a true mix of cultures.”

DJ Snake’s 2016 hit “Let Me Love You” ft. Justin Bieber reached a billion streams on Spotify. That achievement makes him only the fifth artist in Spotify history (along with Drake, Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, and The Chainsmokers) to have two songs earn a billion streams each on the platform. DJ Snake first hit the billion-stream mark with “Lean On” ft. MØ, his 2015 collaboration with Major Lazer.

Having toured the world this summer, DJ Snake will return to the U.S. this fall for two very special shows. This Halloween season, the world-class producer will headline sold-out dates at New York City’s Avant Gardner (on October 26) and L.A.’s legendary Shrine (on October 31).

With its worldly rhythms and infectious energy, “Taki Taki” continues DJ Snake’s track record of global hits, from “Turn Down for What” to “Let Me Love You” to the club record of the summer: his India-inspired “Magenta Riddim. “Taki Taki” arrives ahead of DJ Snake’s forthcoming album, which is set to drop soon.

Sting & Shaggy

Sting and Shaggy are excited to unleash the official video for ‘Gotta Get Back My Baby’ today featuring Golden Globe-nominated actor Steven Bauer (Scarface/Breaking Bad) and directed by Michael Garcia. The track appears on Sting & Shaggy’s collaborative album 44/876 (Cherrytree/A&M/Interscope Records), which to date has spent sixteen weeks atop Billboard’s Reggae chart. Watch the video HERE.

Set in Miami and inspired by the hilarity and hijinks of classic buddy-cop TV shows and films, the light-hearted video sees the pair playing detectives reporting to their police Captain (Bauer) and partnering up for a host of frenzied action and stunts on a mission to find Roxy, a dangerous fugitive, in an exhilarating visual that encapsulates the spirit of the duo’s compelling and dynamic partnership.

The track, co-produced by Teflon (Wyclef Jean, Fat Joe, Ruff Ryders) and Martin Kierszenbaum (Sting, Mylène Farmer, Lady Gaga), appears on Sting and Shaggy’s chart-topping, island-inspired album, 44/876 (Cherrytree/A&M/Interscope Records), which debuted at #1 in Germany and has reached Gold status in both France and Poland.

Check out a making-of the video EPK here: https://bit.ly/2CyAfCO

For complete tour itinerary, please visit: www.sting.com/tour.

While in the US, Sting is currently at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot 100 with JuiceWRLD’s “Lucid Dreams” which samples “Shape of My Heart,” written by 16-time Grammy Award winner, Sting and his longtime guitarist, Dominic Miller.
