City Girls release Face Down via 360 MAGAZINE.

City Girls – Face Down

City Girls release “Face Down” via Quality Control Music / Motown. Listen HERE.

This marks their third brash, straight-talking single this summer, as the Miami rappers’ third studio album is close to arriving. In June City Girls’ JT and Yung Miami gave the world the ‘rich, young and pretty bitch anthem’ “I Need A Thug”, followed by the clever word-play of the “Pinata” single. In addition JT’s “No Bars” came last month, as well as being prominently featured on Diddy’s “Act Bad (featuring City Girls and Fabolous).”

Wasting no time swaggering into summer, they have also played festivals such as Rolling Lou’s California and Miami, as well as Sumer Jam Houston. City Girls’ last album came back in June 2020, which was “City On Lock.” At the time, that project went on to debut at number 29 on the Billboard 200 chart. It was led by hit singles such as “Jobs” and “P**** Talk” featuring Doja Cat.

The trailblazing duo left their mark on 2022 with “Top Notch” featuring Fivio Foreign and “Good Love” — an up-tempo linkup with R&B legend Usher. The latter was the latest in a long line of outrageous hits stretching back to 2017’s “Fuck Dat N***a.” Since then, they have landed platinum records with bangers like “Act Up” and the Cardi B-assisted “Twerk.”

Having recently been named one of the 50 greatest rap groups of all time by Billboard, Yung Miami and JT are primed to make your summer bad – real bad. Times two. 

With more than 15 billion cumulative streams to their credit and co-signs from hip-hop heavyweights ranging from Missy Elliott, who directed the video for 2021’s “Twerkulator,” to Lil Wayne (a featured artist on 2020’s “Pussy Talk”), City Girls are a legitimate phenomenon, who continue to rewrite the rulebook with every new release.  





Blackpink release the girls via 360 MAGAZINE.

Empowering and upbeat, “The Girls” debuted on BLACKPINK’s THE GAME — their hugely popular mobile game. This new song celebrates the quartet’s unstoppable rise to the top and perfectly encapsulates their defiant, fun-loving attitude. 

“Stop sign, we burning it down,” BLACKPINK sings over bouncy beats on the addictive chorus. “Better watch out, we coming in loud.” The hitmakers then fire off a warning: “Bang bang! Just playing around, don’t mess with the girls with the girls with the girls.” JISOOJENNIEROSÉ, and LISA are known for their innovative videos (they have a record 90M YouTube subscribers) and “The Girls” is no exception.

In addition to releasing new music, the foursome will perform at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles on the final date of their WORLD TOUR [BORN PINK] ENCORE on August 26. The extended leg featured shows at major stadiums across the US. Starting on August 12th, BLACKPINK performed at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, and Oracle Park in San Francisco.

The enormous success of BORN PINK is just the latest achievement in what has been a meteoric ascent for the K-pop group. After releasing global hits like “How You Like That” and their song with Selena Gomez “Ice Cream,” BLACKPINK released THE ALBUM in 2020 to universal acclaim. The captivating project debuted at No. 2 on both the U.S. Billboard 200 and UK Official Chart, and sold more than 1.4 million copies worldwide, making BLACKPINK the first K-pop girl group to sell over a million units.

With “The Girls,” BLACKPINK begins a new chapter as the group continues to win new fans the world over.

Landrover Defender and rapper Kano launch new TikTok page via 360 MAGAZINE.


Defender is heading into new territory once again with the launch of its official TikTok account in collaboration with pioneering British rapper, songwriter, and actor Kano.

Famous for heroic capability and exceptional all-terrain adventures, Defender is now exploring a musical world it has much in common with. Like the best music, Defender represents losing yourself in the experience and taking the road less travelled. The official new TikTok account will deepen this connection.

Music artist and actor, Kano, said: “Defender is an icon that can trace its roots back to the very beginning of a genre it now defines. As a musician, I aim to be as real as possible and innovate in a similar way, so I can relate to that journey. What’s more, Defender is more relevant today than ever and is completely unmistakable – which is the kind of aesthetic I strive for in my own music.” 

The new TikTok account seeks to inspire Defender clients – known to have a great passion for music – through innovative collaborations with renowned artists such as Kano. The debut tie-up features the ground-breaking artist alongside Defender 90, showcasing its authentic, purposeful design and unmistakable reductive silhouette.

The launch of Defender TikTok also sees the brand form a new digital community in parallel with the community of Defender owners. Kano has an authentic and innovative approach and is a pioneer in the British music industry. The Defender account will inspire and connect with an entirely new group of people with content created just for them. Award-winner Kano and Defender 90 headline the launch as the Defender for a new generation – the ultimate combination of power and purpose.

Defender can trace its roots back to the original 1948 Land Rover and has evolved to become one of the most capable and recognisable 4x4s in the world. It is designed to rove the land and conquer any environment, enabling clients to be exceptional with endless possibilities.

Mark Cameron, Managing Director for Defender, said: “Defender and music can both unlock powerful emotions, inspiring whole communities to go their own way, break new ground and embrace all kinds of adventures. Launching our new account with Kano – a pioneer who has helped shape UK music and is a role model in that industry – is a fitting way for the Defender brand to make its TikTok debut.”

Fittingly, Defender embraces connectivity, featuring JLR’s awarding-winning Pivi Pro infotainment, controlled via an intuitive dash-mounted 11.4-inch touchscreen.

Pivi Pro supports Wireless Apple CarPlay as standard. Wireless Android Auto® is also supported for easy music streaming. With a choice of powerful and innovative Meridian sound systems, Defender is the perfect place to stream music of any genre and be immersed in the audio experience.

Embedded apps such as Spotify also mean clients can enjoy curated playlists with just a tap of the screen, with their favourite music at their fingertips or via a simple voice command. Software Over The Air capability means Defender is always up to date while its dual eSIM design provides excellent connectivity.

Defender represents an entire off-road family comprising 90, 110 and 130 body designs, with between two and eight seating options and a compelling choice of powerful and efficient powertrains, including plug-in electric hybrid and mild-hybrid options to provide a Defender to suit every situation and allow clients to embrace every opportunity and environment.

Now you can listen to the Hallmark Channel on the go! Get ready for the highly anticipated debut of Hallmark’s Mahogany Presents, “Crimson Hearts Collide,” the latest addition to the scripted podcast space! Starring Malinda Williams, Amanda Seales, and Keith D. Robinson. The all-new original podcast series is set to release its first two episodes on August 24th, with subsequent episodes airing every Thursday.

Episode 101 – “Unexpected Inheritance”

(Available Thursday, August 24)

Listeners will be transported from New York City to Alabama and into the lives of “Crimson Hearts Collide’s” three main characters: Sonora Williams (Malinda Williams, “Soul Food”), a top lawyer in New York City, her best friend, Kelsey (Amanda Seales “Insecure”) and handsome cowboy, Zeke Summers (Keith D. Robinson, “Sister Swap: A Hometown Holiday”). 

One day, Sonora receives a letter in the mail that changes everything! She has an uncle who just passed away and left her an inheritance, a farm in Alabama. For her entire life growing up in foster care, she was told she had no family, leaving her to wonder, if he knew about her, why did he not come for her?  In search of answers, Sonora travels down south to collect her inheritance and discovers her uncle has left her his most prized possession, the farm.  

While in Alabama, she meets the people who keep the farm running. Sparks fly when she meets and falls for real-life cowboy Zeke Summers, who is clearly not happy with his new big-city boss. Sonora’s world falls apart when her law firm postpones her big promotion to partner, and her newly discovered cousin, Eloise, lays legal claim to the farm Sonora has just inherited.

Episode 2 (Available Thursday, August 24)

Sonora desperately tries to get more information about her boss, Laura’s sudden change of heart. Meanwhile, she discovers that the farm is deep in debt. Family friend Minnie bonds with Sonora as she helps her with a hair emergency and fills her in on Uncle Chuck’s flawed business dealings. Apparently, Chuck’s compassion is what got the farm in trouble. This only adds to the mystery of why Uncle Chuck never reached out to Sonora. The revelation that Zeke’s heart is taken puts a damper on Sonora’s attraction. While a workers’ crisis sends the farm into a deeper debt spiral, Cousin Eloise treats the farm as her personal retreat.

With each episode building on the last, “Crimson Hearts Collide” promises to be a gripping, must-listen series that explores the complexities of friendship, family, love, and ambition.

An eight-part series, “Crimson Hearts Collide,” marks the first-ever scripted podcasting venture for the company and a milestone in the continued extension of Hallmark’s legacy brand Mahogany, an iconic 30+ year-old card line brought to life as a Hallmark Media entertainment initiative last year. Mahogany content offerings spotlight storytelling that exemplifies family, community, connection, positivity, and the power of love – all through the unique lens of Black culture.

Tune in every Thursday to follow Sonora, Kelsey, and Zeke and join the conversation on social media using the hashtag #CrimsonHeartsCollide.

Releasing new single and announcing their upcoming album, its a big time for the group IRONTOM.

IRONTOM Announce Upcoming Album

Hailing from the hedonistic capital of the modern world, Los Angeles’ IRONTOM today announce their upcoming album GEL pt.1 with the release of new single Super//Star. Sonically spoofing a Guns N’ Roses-esque, ready assemble, arena rock anthem, the new track is an ego trip fueled by delusions of grandeur. No one can tell you that you don’t deserve everything when you think you are the greatest  Stream.

Filmed in a single shot, the official video for Super//Star is pure rock and roll gluttony and hootenanny. With in-your-face motifs running rampant through all the band’s recent videos, directors Amalia Irons and Max Harper have created an IRONTOM universe where oddity is the commodity Watch.

The band’s October 13 album is the most non-boundary fun they have ever created within. With no limits, and no distinction between being deadly serious or wildly satirical, IRONTOM describes GEL pt.1 like, Opening your front door to realize you are at the top of Mount Everest, but it’s in the center of Hollywood and your only way out is to shoot down a water slide where you witness golden and crusty characters of the self-obsessed and overstimulated. Pre-save GEL pt.1 / Pre-order on CD/ vinyl.

Back in April, IRONTOM began rolling out the singles from GEL pt.1 with their self-aware nihilistic fantasy Con Artist and its accompanying videoSir Elton John praised the absurdity of the track on his Apple Music Rocket Hour show. IRONTOM was also invited by the Red Hot Chili Peppers to take over their SiriusXM channel. And at the end of June, the band set out to brainwash and loot their listeners with Common Chaos. The second single’s official video picked right up in the same universe the last video left off in, painting a visual universe and leaving fans guessing their next move at every step along the way.

This Fall, the band will join AWOLNATION on the road for a run of shows and then head to Latin America for tour dates with the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Between these two tour runs, IRONTOM will host a release show in their hedonistic hometown of Los Angeles at Moroccan Lounge on October 19. All tour info can be found here and below.

IRONTOM is here to be critical of the whole world and everything wrong with it, while simultaneously acknowledging that that includes them. They want to watch the world burn while they pee on the fire. Truths are stretched and lies exist to be satirized in their musical realm. Like a car crash, whether amazed or appalled, no one can look away from the psychedelic world IRONTOM leads listeners through.


It’s hard to know the true origin story of IRONTOM as many different stories have circulated the internet for some time. The band is fronted by Zach Irons and Harry Hayes, who allegedly claim to be fraternal twins separated at birth. Through the help of and 23andMe, they were reunited when they were both 19 years old to form the band in Malibu, California, along with drummer Dylan Williams.

Cutting their teeth playing together during a six-month residency gig they had on a small stage at Six Flags Magic Mountain next to Viper, they found their way into a sound that combines arty post-punk and prog influences with psychedelic flourishes and funk-rock grooves. They lean into the eccentric, satirically commenting on the screwed-up society they know they negatively contribute to themselves.

Acknowledging that childhood is the place to look back to for the root of musical influence, Irons grew up in a very creative household headed by former Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam drummer Jack Irons. Less inspiringly, Williams’ eighth cousin is George W. Bush.

Weaving each release into the last, IRONTOM will unveil their new album GEL pt.1 on October 13. The journey will be unsettling, madcap and uninhibited fun. But full disclaimer; everything that you learn about the band that feels absurd or sensationalized, may very well be the truth.
