Urban Electric Artist Aazar Releases New Single

Following a recent track with Grammy winning, dance-duo, The Chainsmokers, French DJ and producer, Aazar is just time for the summer with his debut single (via Interscope Records) – “Diva (featuring Swae Lee & Tove Lo)” – the rhythmic, hip-swaying banger is available today via all digital retailers.

An Ode to Modern Divas in all their forms: from the most badass to the most glamorous, dancers or boxers. Aazar wanted us to celebrate in a fun and uninhibited way the diversity of the “Carefree Divas” of the World. Watch  Aazar, Swae Lee, and Tove Lo dance around the streets of Los Angeles in the video directed by Original Kids HERE.

The trio teamed up after Aazar was asked about his dream collaborations. “’ Diva’ is a very special record to me. I produced this record a few years ago and I always wanted a vocal on it. Here we are now, with Swae Lee and Tove Lo…I couldn’t be happier” says Aazar of the track. After sharing his appreciation of Swae Lee, Aazar (Alexis Duvivier), coincidentally ran into him at Paris Fashion Week. Without hesitation, he told the Grammy-nominated rapper that he’s a producer, a huge fan and believed that one day they would work together. When he reached out to Swedish singer, Tove Lo, who thought the song “felt like a golden egg dropping into [her] lap,” he wasn’t confident of a response. Tove was immediately on board after finishing a writing session for her album back home in Stockholm. Calling it the “fastest and smoothest collab ever,” she sent her vocals back within forty-eight hours.

More on Aazar: Paris-based producer and member of Point Point, Aazar, has been immensely busy in the studio working on an abundance of exciting new music this year. Having produced official remixes for the likes of David Guetta (Flames) and Martin Solveig (My Love) as well as powerful collaborations with Cesqueaux, Yellow Claw & Moksi (Shanghai Nights Album), Aazar is generating an undeniable buzz around him and his music. His more recent collaboration with The Chainsmokers on groundbreaking track ‘Siren’ has been streaming non-stop worldwide. Aazar’s live career is also on the rise, continuously touring around the world and playing for new audiences in Europe, Asia, USA as well as celebrated festivals such as Tomorrowland, Encore Beach Las Vegas, Mysteryland, the momentum is clear in Aazar conquering these territories. In contrast to the globe-trotting exploits of this artist, Aazar has also been spending a lot of time in the kitchen, as his gourmet alter-ego Chef Aazar. Interesting and tasteful, exactly how Aazar approached everything in 2018 and before; and 2019 is going to build on this trend since he already has some exciting stuff cooking.

Reebok x ComplexCon

Today, Reebok unveiled the first sneaker in their highly anticipated limited edition, R58 capsule collection with the release of the Aztrek R58, which was available only at ComplexCon.

The series, which encompasses three of Reebok’s key sneakers, nods to the brand’s heritage as well as the grit and attitude of their co-founders — encouraging wearers to be unafraid and push the limits beyond the conventional. The Aztrek R58 ($120) also nods to the brand’s 90s heritage as the original off-road runner and features shades of black, yellow and red with all three Reebok logos artfully placed throughout.

To celebrate the shoe’s debut, Swae Lee (Rae Sremmurd) stopped by the Reebok booth and got a custom tattoo from artist Miryam. Brand partner Trevor Andrew also stopped by.

In partnership with basketball legend Allen Iverson, Reebok also debuted the long-awaited follow-up to the Answer XIV, the Iverson Legacy. Featuring an entirely new design, the sneaker is the first collaboration between the two in four years and pays tribute to Iverson’s life and career. Championing his legacy both on and off the courts, the Legacy features design elements from his first five Reebok models and reinterprets them for today. Fans of Iverson will recognize details like the ghillie lacing system, iconic I3 jewel logo and woven heel tab from the Question, Answer I, Answer II, Answer III, Answer IV.

Officially launching November 17 on Reebok.com for $160, Allen Iverson made an appearance at the Reebok booth to officially unveil the sneaker. Along with the black/white colorway, a custom version from sneakerhead and former Complex editor, Russ Bengtson was offered as an exclusive for ComplexCon attendees. Bengtson’s shoe, which nod’s to Iverson’s unprecedented legacy, is inspired by classic Iverson models as well as his various tattoos — featuring a bold, red and camo pattern throughout. The red leather nods to the Question and Answer I, while the multiple patches bring in a lot of other Iverson-themed graphics, an easy way to let people personalize their own pairs.

Sony Pictures Entertainment and Republic Records have teamed up for the first time to create a contemporary musical companion for the upcoming feature film. The two camps worked closely to create a soundtrack in support of the multi-cultural protagonist of the film, Miles Morales. The music from the soundtrack will span multiple genres including Hip Hop, Latin and Pop and look to portray what a teen like Miles is listening to across the country.

From the creative minds behind The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street, Phil Lord & Christopher Miller, comes Spider-Man™: Into the Spider-Verse, a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that’s the first of its kind.  Spider-Man™: Into the Spider-Verse introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask. Directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman from a screenplay by Phil Lord and Rodney Rothman and story by Phil Lord, the producers are Avi Arad, Amy Pascal, Phil Lord & Christopher Miller and Christina Steinberg.

“Post and Swae have delivered a song that’s both heroic and emotional, which is exactly what a Spider-Man story needs.  It’s anthemic, but also heartfelt — the perfect soundtrack for Miles to discover the Spider-Man inside himself,” said Spring Aspers, Head of Music, Creative Affairs Worldwide for Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Motion Picture Group.

SremmLife 2 drew acclaim from the likes of the New York Times, who noted that “the quieter innovation on this album is how, thanks to the more-meditative production, SremmLife 2is at times a commentary on and an updating of decades of Southern club rap.”

Released in 2015, Rae Sremmurd’s first full-length SremmLife debuted at the top of Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Rap Albums charts, in addition to cracking the Top 5 on the Top 200 Albums chart its first week.
