bülow Releases “Get Stupid” Music Video

Award winning and multi-platinum pop iconoclast bülow has released a music video for her new single, “Get Stupid,” today via Wax Records /Republic Records/Universal Music Canada.
 
Watch the video for “Get Stupid” HERE.
 
The track is off the JUNO Award winner’s latest EP Crystalline released earlier this year and was produced by Mike Wise, who produced several songs on the EP. When discussing the accompanying video for the song whose concept was envisioned by the singer herself, bülow commented, “When I was younger, I wanted to be an inventor, to create things. I think everybody strives for the feeling of self importance, trying to find their ways to be remembered. My character created a flying device, it didn’t work out, but that wasn’t the end.”
 
The German-born Toronto-based artist, who made a name for herself with the smash hit, “Not A Love Song,” is set to take the stage at multiple festivals this summer including the iconic Lollapalooza in Chicago and Osheaga in Montreal, Canada. This summer’s festival run follows bülow’s SXSW,  Bonnaroo and Bunbury Music Festival debuts earlier this year. In addition to finding success through her own musical endeavors bülow appears on the GRAMMY Award winning duo The Chainsmokers latest single, “Do You Mean,” and performed the track on The Today Show in New York City’s famed Rockefeller Plaza in June of this year. And while bülow’s summer is packed with festival performances, the singer-songwriter has no plans of stopping as she’ll be re-joining Lauv’s tour this fall after supporting the singers tour dates in Asia earlier this year.   

Johnny Orlando’s Debut EP

Johnny Orlando Announces Debut EP, TEENAGE FEVER, Plots Headlining North American Tour &

Drops Dreamy New Single “SLEEP”

Singer-songwriter and fan favorite Johnny Orlando shows no sign of slowing down. Set to share his first solid musical statement in the form of his debut EP, Teenage Fever, out March 15, followed by a headlining North American tour this spring, the recent JUNO-Award nominee for Breakthrough Artist of the Year also drops his dreamy new single, Sleep today.

Tickets for the Teenage Fever Tour are on sale February 18 at johnnyorlandomusic.com. To pre-order Teenage Fever, click here. See full track listing below.

Sleep”, co-written by Orlando, his sister Darian and Swedish collaborators Linnea Södahl (Zara Larsson, Anne-Marie) and Hampus Lindvall (Zara Larsson), is the second single from Johnny’s upcoming debut EP. The pop Swedish-influenced song about living in the moment and not wanting that moment to end showcases Johnny’s maturing sound and songwriting skills.

“We wrote ‘Sleep’ for anyone who’s ever experienced that feeling of never wanting to be apart from someone who you love to spend time with. I felt that it was a very real and relatable thing that people experience at some point in their adolescence,” said Johnny. “Linnea first came up with the concept for ‘Sleep’ – it’s almost like there’s a word for it in Swedish, or it’s a common feeling, that we don’t really think about in English, and that’s why I think it’s so unique.”

Out March 15, Teenage Fever marks Orlando’s biggest release since signing with Universal Music Canada and Island Records. Emanating confidence and charisma over danceable electronic grooves and a subtle hip-hop bounce, Orlando levels up his take on pop. The EP highlights his ever-evolving songwriting skills as he co-writes all six tracks with his sister, Darian Orlando, and a range of acclaimed collaborators including Mike Wise (bülow, Dvbbs, RALPH), Linnea Södahl (Zara Larsson, Anne-Marie), Nick Ruth (Ryan Tedder), Jordon Manswell (Daniel Caesar) and Matthew Burnett (Jessie Reyez, Daniel Caesar). The EP also features previously released single, “Last Summer” which sits at over 17.3 million global streams (and growing) across all platforms.

“I’m very excited and so grateful that I have this opportunity to share my debut EP,” added Johnny. “‘Teenage Fever’, represents those experiences and feelings all teenagers have while trying to navigate their high school years. It tells the story of my journey, and I hope it will give people a more personal insight into my life and experiences. We spent about a year making this project and it means so much to me. I worked with so many cool people with different backgrounds and from different places, which gives it a lot of character and makes every song unique. I’m so happy to share new music with fans and hope they love it as much as I do – I can’t wait to see the reaction live on tour!”

Juno Award-winning critically acclaimed rapper Jazz Cartier shares his new single GODFLOWER. It’s available at all digital retailers via Universal Music Canada/Capitol Records.

Get it HERE.

Speaking to his panoramic vision, an intriguing concept drives the record. He comments, The driving force of Fleurever is duality whether it’s battling the balances of love and money, risks and rewards, right and wrong, or living and dying. I shed a lot of old layers in order to grow new wings.

A tastemaker favorite, XXL placed him at #1 on its Canadian Artists You Should Know, Noisey crowned him, one of the leaders of a new wave of hip-hop, and Billboard wrote, Jazz Cartier reigns from the Canadian capital. In a review of How Did I Get This Deep? Pitchfork claimed, Jazz Cartier has been tipped as the next big rapper out of Toronto, and if the lead single from his forthcoming Fleurever mixtape offers any indication, he may have finally arrived.
