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:
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.

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. MØ, 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 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.

Hailed “one of the most anticipated concerts of the year” and “a reggae rock dance party that never lets up,” Sting & Shaggy are currently on the road with their 44/876 Tour in North America, before heading to South America later this month in October and Eastern Europe in November. 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.
Def Jam Recordings – the iconic label and global brand synonymous with hip-hop culture – has partnered with 20th Century Fox on the October 12th release of the Official Soundtrack to the highly-anticipated film The Hate U Give, based on the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Angie Thomas.
Def Jam Recordings’ next generation of stars, Arlissa and Bobby Sessions, join an all-star cast of contemporary and legendary artists including Kendrick Lamar, Pusha T, Logic, Jadakiss, and Tupac Shakur for the official movie soundtrack of THE HATE U GIVE, October 12th.
Arlissa and Bobby Sessions introduce new, previously unreleased songs on the soundtrack, which Variety raves “cleverly mimics the film’s outlook by oscillating between snatches of 2Pac and modern R&B;” South London-bred, 25-year old siren Arlissa, who recently appeared in the August issue Vogue, experienced her first real taste of success with her breakthrough track “Hearts Ain’t Gonna Lie.” Arlissa’s defiant anthem “We Won’t Move” from THE HATE U GIVE soundtrack garnered early buzz at the Toronto Film Festival premiere of T.H.U.G., with Toronto’s NOW exclaiming “the soulful ballad has got ‘Oscar nominee’ written all over it.”
LISTEN HERE: https://Arlissa.lnk.to/WeWontMove
“It’s been a true honor to be involved in something so significant and relevant to today’s social climate,” Arlissa said. “I was one of the millions of people who were deeply touched by the book, so to be able to contribute to the movie, which shines such a strong light on inequality, has been a responsibility I’ve taken with such pride and care. This is not just a film, this is education”
Fiery Dallas rapper Bobby Sessions, who NPR raves “confronts racism with a captivating flow that’s both acrimonious and awe-inspiring,” and whose debut EP “channels the anger and despair that accompany the cycle of systemic racism” according to XXL, performs the eponymous title tune, “The Hate U Give.”
Shaping up as one of the fall season’s breakout movies, The Hate U Give stars Amandla Stenberg as Starr, a teen who is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right. Amandla’s original song “Always” closes out the soundtrack.
The Hate U Give also stars Russell Hornsby, Regina Hall, Issa Rae, KJ Apa, Algee Smith and Sabrina Carpenter, with Common, and Anthony Mackie. The film was directed by George Tillman Jr. (Notorious, Men Of Honor), and produced by Robert Teitel, George Tillman Jr., Marty Bowen, and Wyck Godfrey. The Hate U Give, whose screenplay was written by Audrey Wells (A Dog’s Purpose, Under The Tuscan Sun), is a Fox 2000 Pictures, State Street Pictures, and Temple Hill Entertainment production, distributed by 20th Century Fox.

Buzzing rapper and singer Klondike Blonde shares her new single “No Smoke“ after its world premiere on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1radio show. The single is now available at all digital retailers and the music video was released today via Complex. Click HERE to view!
Klondike says of the song, “In a weird way, “No Smoke” is all about becoming the better version of yourself. I am the ex-girlfriend, and I am better than her.“
Bright, bold, and brilliant colors practically pop off the screen in the visual, which reflects her vibrant and vivacious personality seamlessly. The technicolor dream also perfectly complements her half-blonde, half-pink hairstyle (highlighted by a dyed heart). Between charismatic and cocky bars, the artist’s attitude takes center stage with the intoxicating hook “She don’t want no smoke.” However, Klondike is about to light up the game, deftly angling herself as an artist to watch in 2018 and beyond.
“No Smoke” paves the way for Klondike’s anxiously awaited debut EP, arriving very soon via L.A. Reid’s HITCO Entertainment. The single is the follow up to her track “Drip” which garnered over 2 million views on YouTube in under a month’s time.
ABOUT KLONDIKE BLONDE
Born in Raleigh and raised in the Bay Area, Klondike Blonde‘s perspective has the power to reach listeners everywhere. Breaking boundaries with her sound, innovative sense of style, and Big Gang movement, she brings a much needed energy to hip-hop and pop culture. She began her musical career in high school as a way to escape a not-so positive experience she endured verbal bullying regularly. Shortly after graduating high school in 2017, Klondike relocated to Atlanta where she released her first two songs on Soundcloud, entitled “Big Gang Glocks” and “Love Letter.” The arrival of these two tracks built her a nice buzz and solid social following on Instagram. In 2018, she unveiled her first music video for “Drip,” which garnered 2 million views on YouTube in a month’s time. This caught the attention of established artist and producer Jazze Pha who quickly took her under his wing. Shortly after, she inked a deal with HITCOEntertainment, which she claims, felt like family. Now, she amps up the energy even more with “No Smoke.“

Brokenint sought to mirror the musical fusion of classic House and Trance music in “Dancing Alone” through contrasting visual representations in a raw, warehouse rave space and an idyllic, but nostalgic mid 2000’s Ibiza clubbing experience. Axwell /\ Ingrosso whose songs have racked up a cumulative two billion streams worldwide produced the track, which they co-wrote with Roc Nation signed British singer-songwriter ROMANS. “Dancing Alone” has accumulated over 30 million global streams across all platforms.
Offering both a nod to the legacy and a glimpse at the future of electronic music, “Dancing Alone“ fills the void of the noughties rave trance sound as the duo skillfully combines frenetic synths and driving kick drums. Building upon ROMANS‘ emotive vocals in tandem with a catchy hook, the anthemic track effortlessly dives into a euphoric drop while maintaining Axwell /\ Ingrosso’s characteristic energy. Download / stream “Dancing Alone“ HERE or listen on YouTube HERE.
The duo also announces the launch of a new Amazon Alexaskill. Users can ask Alexa questions to hear their favorite Axwell /\ Ingrosso tracks. The Axwell /\ Ingrosso skill is now live in the Amazon store HERE. To start say: “Alexa, Open Axwell Ingrosso Music.”
Next, ask Alexa:
“Dancing Alone” follows Axwell /\ Ingrosso’s two massive 2017 hits “More Than You Know,” which has been certified multi-Platinum in 16 countries, Gold in four countries and Diamond in two, and “Dreamer,” featuring Trevor Guthrie. The songs are found on the duo’s debut album, More Than You Know. Eight of the album’s 13 tracks have charted in the top 10 of Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart. Cumulatively, Axwell /\ Ingrosso have sold upwards of 13 million adjusted singles worldwide.

Ben has to say on the tracks:
“The recording sessions for Noonday Dream were so varied and over quite a period of time. There were little gems that we didn’t know what to do with but it felt right to put these 3 together, both separate and a part of the album so to speak.”
Listen to all three tracks here:
Ben is now back out on the road, taking Noonday Dream across the US and Canada in September/October before returning to Europe for a stretch of dates in November.
