Tana – Hell Yeah

Gearing up for another massive moment, 15-year-old phenomenon tana (f/k/a BabySantana) serves up a new single and music video entitled “hell yeah” today via Galactic Records/Republic Records. Listen to “hell yeah”HERE. Watch the music video for “hell yeah”HERE.

The track’s otherworldly and off-kilter production offsets his dynamic melodic flow. He cuts through the beat with ethereal melodies and an engaging and entrancing hook. The accompanying visual seamlessly captures this sonic ebb and flow.

It arrives in the wake of “swagging like this” with Lancey Foux and “nyc.” The latter reeled in over 1.3 million Spotify streams in addition to receiving critical acclaim. Right out of the gate, office raved, “[tana], who is known for his brief but genius tracks and adds ‘NYC’ to the list of songs you wish were longer” and hailed the track as “filled with a frenzy of hard-hitting lyrics from his prodigal mind.

Recently, he concluded a full-scale North American tour with multiplatinum chart-topping rap phenoemnon Lil Tecca. Next up, he will appear at Rolling Loud Toronto September 9-11 and Rolling Loud New York September 23-25 before supporting Tecca on tour across Europe.

Earlier this year, tana’s “off the leash!” feat. yvngxchris & Luisss racked up north of 26.2 million Spotify streams. Daily Chiefers applauded it as a “fucking banger” and urged, “each drop is seemingly better than the previous one.” DJ Booth touted it among the “Best Songs of the Week” and wrote, Santana declares himself ‘off the leash, which has the young Georgia rapper gnashing through crunchy production and features from yvngxchris and Luisss.

With catchy chameleonic flows, a predilection for otherworldly melodies, and skill that far belies his age, 15-year-old rapper and creator tana roots his vision in versatility. The Columbus, GA native presents an ambitious perspective on hip-hop, separating himself from the pack by disregarding convention and pushing past every boundary. As a kid, tana instantly gravitated towards music, listening to everyone from Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz to Soulja Boy and Pitbull. By 12-years-old, he taught himself how to record, working out of a tiny bedroom closet in complete D.I.Y. fashion. Under initial the name BabySantana, he slowly, but surely gained traction on Soundcloud with a series of uploads. Lil Tecca jumped on his “Prada (Remix), and Pitchfork showed love to the collaboration in 2020. He parlayed this momentum into an explosion with “Antisocial” [feat. Slump6s], gathering 76.1 million Spotify streams and 5.6 million YouTube views. Its sequel “Antisocial 2” [feat. Slump6sYung FazoXhuloooSSGKOBE] posted up 23 million Spotify streams as “14” [with KA$HDAMI] reeled in another 24 million Spotify streams. Concurrently, XXL summed up his rise, “more and more artists are grasping hip-hop earlier than ever, and creating it in their own way. BabySantana surely fits the bill.” After amassing hundreds of millions of streams and earning acclaim, he emerges as an inimitable force on his 2022 debut project, and more to come.

The official music video, directed by Rogen “Ruption” Walker (Aidonia, Konshens, Shenseea,) was shot in Portland, Jamaica, and immediately grabs the attention of all with Tosh’s hard-hitting presence as she pays homage to the 90’s golden era of Dancehall with a splendor aesthetic and enriching allure. 

Tosh shares, “It was important for me to highlight the dynamic of the Jamaican culture through our fashion, attitude & art form. From the vibrant colors of the tropical- lux landscape, the fashion which pays homage to Caribbean & Dancehall fashion with subtle nuances of couture, to the grit of our expression throughout the video. I wanted the person watching “Cum Yah” to gain an authentic experience of my culture for those 3 minutes & 7 seconds.”

ZEEKR 001 BREAKS TWO GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS

  • ZEEKR has successfully broken two Guinness World Records at an event in China
  • The premium all-electric 001 vehicle broke the record for the fastest drift ever achieved by an electric car hitting a maximum speed of 207.996km/h
  • It then went on to take the title for the fastest electric car slalom at 49.05 seconds

Premium electric mobility brand ZEEKR has announced its luxury all-electric 001 vehicle has broken two Guinness World Records.

Less than a year since the brand started delivering vehicles to customers in China, ZEEKR has made its mark on the global stage by claiming the titles for the fastest drift ever achieved by an electric car and the fastest electric car slalom. 

The records have fully verified the three core strengths that underpin the 001, it is “fast, accurate and stable.”

The fastest electric vehicle drift requires the vehicle to achieve greater than 160km/h and the 001 was able to achieve a maximum speed of 207.996km/h. Using the 001’s high-performance twin electric drive system, the front and rear were able to achieve instantaneous torque output up to 7,680Nm and an acceleration time up to 100km/h in only 3.8s.

This power and acceleration, combined with the 001’s high-performance chassis suspension system, maximizes body stability and allows the driver to maintain consistent and precise drifting and the car to truly dance right on the edge of the limit.

ZEEKR’s 001 also went on to set a new benchmark for the fastest ever all-electric car slalom. The vehicle weaved between 50 cones equally spaced and completed the course, without touching or knocking any down, in 49.05 seconds.

001’s intelligent electric four-wheel drive system boosted acceleration off the line and enabled excellent handling of the vehicle on the fast and dynamic course. The quality of power distribution and the balance between the front and rear wheels between the cones allowed for the 001 to glide through the cones with minimal disruption from the chassis or tyres, maintaining excellent and stable braking at the end. The strong grip also allowed the vehicle to have better cornering ability throughout.  

World Record Technology for Users

This same driving control technology is in all ZEEKR 001 cars and not only brings users a fun and dynamic driving experience, but it also provides safety through stronger controllability and stability. 001 already meets the five-star safety standards and lays the foundation for solid performance control.

Not only does 001 respond to driver operations in milliseconds, but it also responds to multiple emergency scenarios autonomously. In addition, the newly developed intelligent anti-skid dTCS (distributed traction control system) operates at a processing rate 10 times faster than the mainstream TCS traction control systems.  The outstanding stability performance showcased in the slalom record is also met by 001 users on the road in China.

Adhering to the concept of “don’t be a boring electric car” to develop a pure electric high-performance experience, the 001 also has an excellent driving comfort experience under the powerful power and extreme control fun.

Breaking these two world records, ZEEKR has adhered to its own philosophy to not be “a boring electric car”. 001 users can enjoy an excellent driving comfort experience under world record achieving power and finesse. The perfect integration of smart and electric technology in the 001 will bring users more enjoyment in their travel.

The records were broken in August under the supervision of an adjudicator from Guinness World Records at the CATARC proving ground in China.

ZEEKR Business Update

ZEEKR continues to prioritize and fulfill local market customer orders ahead of a planned European roll-out from 2023, where it will ramp up capacity at the ZEEKR Intelligent Factory – one of the world’s most advanced vehicle facilities – to deal with unprecedented demand for the 001.

ROLLS-ROYCE REVEALS ‘PEBBLE BEACH COLLECTION’ 2022 GLOBAL DEBUT OF THE NEWEST BESPOKE FINISHES

  • Rolls-Royce Motor Cars showcases exclusive ‘Pebble Beach Collection 2022’ Bespoke Commissions during Monterey Car Week
  • Bespoke Black Badge Cullinan, finished in Forbidden Pink, makes global debut, and is a bold reminder that Black Badge isn’t always black
  • Global debut of Crystal over Sagano Green finish on stunning Rolls-Royce Ghost
  • Special Collection Commissions flank Phantom Series II at its North American premiere at ‘The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering’

“Rolls-Royce is Bespoke, and colour plays a crucial role. The world’s premier luxury marque offers 44,000 shades for exterior finish and if a client can’t find exactly what they have envisioned, our colour experts in Goodwood will match any shade to create a ‘Bespoke Signature Named’ colour finish. Jonathan Simms, Head of Bespoke, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars

“We have matched colours from flower petals to shades of lipstick and incorporated gold, silver and even diamonds into Bespoke finishes. We welcome creative and technological challenges from our patrons as it drives us to redefine our own creative and technical limits. The inspiration for Rolls-Royce colour and finish is limited only by one’s imagination.”
Jonathan Simms, Head of Bespoke, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars

As hundreds of the world’s most spectacular motor cars converge on the lawns of Monterey, California, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars reveals the ‘Pebble Beach Collection’ 2022, a colourful and exclusive assemblage of Rolls-Royce commissions. Demonstrating their unrivaled design and finish capabilities, the designers have prepared exclusive Bespoke commissions to be displayed throughout Monterey Car Week. Two of these commissions, a Black Badge Cullinan and Ghost, debut never-before-seen colours and finishes from Goodwood. The commissions will flank the new Phantom Series II at ‘The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering’ as it makes its North American debut during Monterey Car Week.

Black Badge Cullinan in Forbidden Pink extends the Black Badge colour palette to a new level – this selection has never been used before on a Rolls-Royce motor car and is a bold reminder that Black Badge need not be black. With bright, Grace White hand-crafted leather subtly offset by Cashmere Grey highlights, the interior suite defies conventional Black Badge stereotypes. Lime Green leather details add the perfect amount of colour to the interior design. As the rear tailgate opens like the clasp on a fine piece of jewelry, the Bespoke Viewing Suite emerges from Cullinan’s luggage compartment. This iconic feature, for the first time in Peony Pink leather, provides the perfect seat to any Monterey Car Week event.

Complementing this colourful Cullinan is another world premiere in Rolls-Royce Bespoke colour finish, Ghost in Crystal over Sagano Green. Created with six layers of finish; highly skilled artisans from the marque’s Exterior Surface Finish Centre spent hours meticulously hand-polishing each layer. Before the final two clear coatings are completed, the Crystal finish is applied with minute particles of colour specks to create a lustrous, multi-dimensional shimmer on Ghost’s post-opulent design. Running the length of the exterior is a hand-applied coachline that beautifully complements the pinstripe tyres on gloss black painted wheels. The hours of hand polishing are inspected in a specially-designed light booth to ensure a perfect finish before this Ghost was delivered to Monterey.

The design team has created additional Bespoke commissions that will be showcased during Monterey Car Week. These creations will be on display throughout the weekend of festivities and will be offered exclusively through authorized retailers.

Displaying a more mature, reflective, and personal side of Aitch‘s songwriting, My G is a loving tribute from the Manchester rapper to his 12-year-old little sister, affectionately called G, who has Down’s Syndrome. Paired with a music video directed by long-term visual collaborator Kelvin Jones, the visual was filmed at The Langdon Down Centre and features a moving performance from Aitch, as he reminisces viewing old childhood and family photos over a soothing silhouette of Ed Sheeran.

Even across the other side of the world, I feel like I bring a sense of Manchester; whether I’m in London or Australia, I’m still Close To Home.

Taking Close To Home on the road for the first time, Aitch will kick off a sold-out headline in the UK followed by a run in the rest of Europe early next year. On the performance front, recently Aitch was brought out as a special guest during Jack Harlow’s set at the 2022 Wireless Festival.

At only 22-years-old, the BRIT Award nominated artist is on the verge of a global breakout with Close To Home. His debut album showcases his ever-growing songwriting skills. Combining a mature and reflective side with the confident charisma he’s known for, Close To Home is a modern spin paying homage to the lineage of Manchester’s musical history, pairing rich and identifiably local flavor with global ambition. Already under his belt Aitch retains over a billion streams, over 5 million records sold worldwide, millions of followers, and co-signs from the likes of Tay Keith, Sam Smith, Skeptaand more.
