One of the most massively successful K-pop groups in music history, BLACKPINK have redefined the global pop landscape since first bursting onto the scene in 2016. Along with boasting the #1 most-subscribed artist channel on YouTube, the South Korean quartet has achieved such boundary-defying milestones as scoring the highest-charting album by a female group in over a decade and becoming the first K-pop girl group ever to perform at Coachella (the largest music festival in the U.S.). Comprised of JISOO, JENNIE, ROSÉ and LISA—all immensely charismatic vocalists, dancers, and fast-rising fashion icons—BLACKPINK began their meteoric rise with their 2016 debut “SQUARE ONE” and further proved their crossover power with “SQUARE UP” (a 2018 release that quickly cracked the Billboard 200).
Soon after signing with Interscope Records through a global partnership with YG Entertainment, the group made their full-length debut with 2020’s immediately iconic THE ALBUM. THE ALBUM shot to #2 on the Billboard 200 and landed three singles on the Billboard Hot 100: “How You Like That” (the iconic single that shattered several YouTube records, including fastest video to cross 150 million views), “Ice Cream” (a collaboration with Selena Gomez that broke the record for highest-charting female K-pop group on the Hot 100), and “Lovesick Girls” (a track that’s sold over 1.4 million copies worldwide, making BLACKPINK the first K-pop girl group to sell over a million units). Through the years, BLACKPINK have also garnered a number of major awards (including an MTV Video Music Award for Song of the Summer as well as three E! People’s Choice Awards), collaborated with superstars like Dua Lipa and Lady Gaga, performed on “The Tonight Show,” and starred in BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky (a 2020 film hailed by the New York Times as an “endearing documentary that emphasizes each member’s individuality”). With over 6.3 billion career Spotify streams to date, BLACKPINK have unveiled their wildly anticipated sophomore album BORN PINK. In less than a month, the group will hit the road for their 2022/2023 world tour kicking off on October 15 in Seoul, South Korea.
For people who want to switch to smoking alternatives, vaping is usually their first choice because it is seen as a better option. However, our article on Vaping and Smoking reveals that this is not the case. A vaping device heats a liquid substance that makes it possible for inhalable vapors to form. While this contains different chemicals from the substances in cigarettes, it’s not necessarily better. This is because of the chemical called diacetyl in the liquid, which causes a common lung disease called ‘popcorn lung’ that blocks airflow. Studies have also concluded that other chemicals in the vapor are linked to the development of lung tumors.
Given these, it’s best to move away from vaping as a smoking alternative. Instead, try these better alternatives:
Nicotine pouches are small pouches containing a small amount of nicotine. They’re made to be put in the mouth, specifically between the lip and the gums, and spit out after use. The nicotine is then absorbed orally into the bloodstream. Because of this, they don’t involve the inhalation of vapors. Pouches are also very discreet, adding to their convenience. Another thing you will like about them is they come in different strengths and flavors. The bestsellers sold on Prilla often come in classic flavors like mint and citrus, and fun ones like mango and berries. In terms of strength levels, more milligrams means more nicotine. Usually, it ranges from 3mg to 8mg. Nicotine pouches are better alternatives because they’re discreet and offer various flavors.
A nasal spray gives you a dose of nicotine through the nostrils. The formula is not inhaled but rather absorbed through the nose. This alternative is best for those who want an instant dose of nicotine throughout the day. The Nicotrol nasal spray can be used for up to 8 weeks. However, if you’re prone to colds and a runny nose, this won’t be a suitable option for you. Because it works by spraying more liquid into your nasal passages, it may only serve to further irritate your nose in these cases.
Nicotine lozenges are tablets containing a dose of nicotine. They are to stay in your mouth, between the gum and the cheek. Nicotine is absorbed through the mouth and into the bloodstream. Do not bite, chew, or swallow them as these do nothing for nicotine absorption. Instead, allow them to dissolve, and they’ll be gone in 20-30 minutes. Because they’re oral products, lozenges typically come in flavors. Reynolds nicotine lozenges come in mint, dark mint, crema, and berry. They’re also available in soft and hard forms for your preference. Lozenges are perfect smoking alternatives if you want to feel like you’re having candy.
Nicotine patches are placed on the body—normally, the upper arm, shoulder, or back—allowing the skin to absorb nicotine. They can be worn for up to 24 hours and their dosages range from 7mg to 21mg. Because they’re patches, they are very subtle and can be hidden under your clothes. The NicoDerm CQ is the best patch because it supplies a steady flow of nicotine as the day progresses. This way, you’ll get equal amounts of nicotine at all times of the day. Patches are great if you don’t want to take oral or nasal alternatives, and you aim for day-long nicotine consumption.
Vaping is as harmful as smoking. With alternatives like lozenges, patches, nasal sprays, and lozenges, it’s easier to quit smoking and improve your health.
What is brand identity? It might seem like a simple question, but it’s actually quite complex. Brand identity is the totality of how your customers perceive your company. It comprises everything from the name and logo to the customer service experience and the way you communicate with everyone on social media. In this article, we will discuss why brand identity is so important and how you can create a strong, unshakeable brand identity for your business.
How Your Brand Identity Can Set You Apart
In a world where there are thousands of businesses all selling similar products or services, it can be hard to stand out. Your brand identity will make you unique and memorable in the minds of your customers. You will attract new customers and keep existing ones coming back for more.
Creating a strong brand identity starts with having a clear understanding of who your target audience is and what they are looking for. Once you know this, you can start to create visuals and messaging that will resonate with them. It’s also important to be consistent with your branding across all channels, from your website to your social media accounts. This will help people quickly recognize your company and what it stands for.
Why Brand Identity Matters
Your brand identity is important because it can help you build trust and credibility with your customers. Customers are likely to do business with companies that they feel good about and can easily identify. An awesome brand identity can also help you charge more for your products or services, as customers are often willing to pay a premium for brands they trust and admire. Investing in a professional branding agency or designer is one of the best ways to ensure that your brand identity is on point.
How To Build Your Brand Identity
There are a few key things to keep in mind when building your brand identity. First, you need to make sure that your branding is consistent across all channels. This means using the same colors, fonts, and overall aesthetic in everything from your website to your social media posts. Second, you need to be clear about who your target audience is and what they are looking for. Once you know this, you can create messaging and visuals that will resonate with them. Finally, always be consistent with your branding. Consistency will help people quickly recognize and remember your company.
Take your brand name, for example. It seems simple enough, but there needs to be a lot of thought that goes into it. The name you choose should be reflective of your company’s values and what you want people to think of when they hear it. It should also be available as a .com, on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, and anywhere else you want to have a presence. One may ask, “what’s in a name?” and the answer is “everything.” If you can’t figure one out, there are many helpful name generators that can help you find the perfect name for whatever you’re trying to convey.
This level of thought needs to be given to every element of your brand identity, from your logo to your website design to the way you talk about your company on social media.
If you’re not sure where to start with creating or improving your brand identity, we suggest working with a professional branding agency or designer. They will be able to help you create visuals and messaging that reflect your company’s values and what you want people to think of when they hear your name. Investing in strong brand identity is one of the best ways to ensure that your business is successful.
A strong brand identity is essential for any business that wants to be successful. It can help you attract new customers, build trust and credibility, and charge premium prices for your products or services. Build your brand correctly, and you will be on your way to a successful future.

August 17, 2022, Auburn Hills, Mich. – Dodge is taking a giant step forward on the performance brand’s road to an electrified future, revealing the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT, a perception-shattering concept that reimagines what a battery-electric vehicle (BEV) can be. The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept offers a glimpse at the brand’s electric future through a vehicle that drives like a Dodge, looks like a Dodge and sounds like Dodge.
The two-door Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept was unveiled today at M1 Concourse in Pontiac, Michigan, during the third day of the three-day Dodge Speed Week event series, which featured announcements and reveals of Dodge performance products.
The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept muscles aside the boring BEV paradigm and replaces it with an electrified vehicle unlike any on the road today. A new propulsion system drives the Charger Daytona SRT Concept with performance that exceeds the Dodge brand’s famed SRT Hellcat engine, accompanied by an industry-first BEV exhaust sound.
The concept’s modern exterior styling incorporates subtle Dodge heritage cues while also exceeding aerodynamic targets. Interior design elements connect to create a driver-centric, immersive experience through sounds, displays and lighting features that change inside and out at the push of a button.
Core to the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept are three game-changing, patent-pending features that will rewrite the rules of the BEV segment:
R-Wing: A unique aerodynamic pass-through design feature that connects the concept with its iconic Dodge Daytona namesake
Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust: Industry-first BEV exhaust, can reach 126 dB, making it as loud as a Hellcat-powered Dodge
eRupt: Multi-speed transmission with an electro-mechanical shifting experience that’s pure Dodge
“The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept exists because performance made us do it,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand chief executive officer – Stellantis. “Dodge is about muscle, attitude and performance, and the brand carries that chip on its shoulder and into the BEV segment through a concept loaded with patents, innovations, and pertformance features that embody the electrified muscle of tomorrow. The Charger Daytona SRT Concept can do more than run the car show circuit; it can run a blazing quarter-mile. And when it comes to product cycles, it outruns Darwin. Charger Daytona does more than define where Dodge is headed, it will redefine American muscle in the process.
“One day ago, the brand’s first-ever electrified performance vehicle was unveiled, the all-new 2023 Dodge Hornet. Today, we revealed a peek at our eMuscle future with the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept. When we said it was going to be an electric summer for Dodge, we meant it.”
Brotherhood, Meet Banshee
Dodge has built a unique reputation as America’s muscle car brand. In the race to be faster, quicker and more powerful, Dodge is turning the page to a new chapter. The brand’s first-ever electric car isn’t called the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept by coincidence — like the famed Charger Daytona model that was the first vehicle to break 200 mph on a NASCAR track in 1970, the Charger Daytona SRT Concept packs a performance punch.
It does so courtesy of a new propulsion system that joins high-horsepower household names such as HEMI®, Hellcat and Redeye. There’s a new pinnacle of performance in the Brotherhood of Muscle: Banshee.
The 800V Banshee propulsion system powers the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept car and screams performance, making Dodge’s first electric vehicle faster than a Hellcat in all key performance measures. The standard all-wheel-drive system is key to pushing beyond Hellcat performance while also improving all-weather capability.
Unlike typical BEVs, the Dodge brand’s eRupt multi-speed transmission with electro-mechanical shifting delivers distinctive shift points, throwing shoulders into seatbacks in true Dodge style. The Charger Daytona SRT Concept also boasts a PowerShot push-to-pass feature. Activated by the push of a button on the steering wheel, PowerShot delivers an adrenaline jolt of increased horsepower for a quick burst of acceleration.
Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust
While most BEVs embrace their virtually silent electric motors, that just wouldn’t do for Dodge. The Charger Daytona
SRT Concept voices a 126 dB roar that equals the SRT Hellcat, generated through a new, patent-pending Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust system. Yes, Dodge added an exhaust to an electric vehicle.
The industry-first Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust pushes its one-of-a-kind performance sound through an amplifier and tuning chamber located at the rear of the vehicle. The Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust represents the next generation of tactile, bone-shaking, muscle attitude, creating a visceral “Dark Matter” sound profile experience in concert with the eRupt transmission.
Dodge Design, First and Foremost
The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept features inspired design that takes on the challenge of revolutionizing the look of a BEV while offering subtle nods to the brand’s muscle car past.
That design principle begins to unfold up front, where the Charger Daytona SRT Concept’s patent-pending R-Wing redefines the typical Dodge front end, maintaining the characteristically blunt Dodge profile while developing a more aerodynamic vehicle.
The R-Wing, an homage to the original Charger Daytona design and to a key figure behind development of the original vehicle, allows air to flow through the front opening, enhancing downforce. Incorporated into this functional performance hood, the front R-Wing holds true to the brand’s dramatic exterior themes while delivering an aerodynamically improved pass-through design. Carbon-fiber intakes tucked into both sides of the front and rear lower fascias provide an air curtain to assist in aerodynamic performance.
The Charger Daytona SRT Concept combines modern looks with a long, wide and confident road presence. The front grille stands out with cross-car illuminated lighting centered by a white illuminated Fratzog badge, a symbol teased last year by the Dodge brand. The three-pointed Fratzog badge, originally featured on Dodge muscle cars from 1962 through 1976, was previously used without any meaning or context — until now. The return of the Fratzog logo represents the electrified future of Dodge and signifies the brand’s unwavering commitment to its performance heritage, but with new technology capable of pushing limits well beyond the cars of today.
Simple, vertical details on the front grille add texture while calling back to the brand’s heritage, specifically the iconic 1968 Dodge Charger. The concept distills performance to its simplest form, enhanced by a typically playful Dodge exterior color name, Greys of Thunder, that gives a high-gloss graphite feel with deep textures. The concept’s “waterline” tracks around the sides and gives a planted look while emphasizing the upper portion, keeping the visual weight up high. Subtle, muscular shaping of the wheel fenders accent the body styling.
The vehicle avoids excess decoration — headlights almost disappear, hidden underneath the R-Wing and integrated seamlessly into the aerodynamic surface providing just the functional elements needed for forward lighting. Both the front and rear lighting feature a full width design centered by a 3D illuminated Fratzog badge. The exterior lighting elements are truly unique – even in the dark, you’ll know the Charger Daytona SRT Concept’s silhouette. Flush door handles continue the minimalist design. Brushed aluminum “screaming” Banshee fender badges announce the new propulsion system that drives the concept.
Painted-pocket 21-inch wheels with diamond-cut faces continue the aerodynamic efficiencies with a turbine-like design, and a red Fratzog logo embellishes the wheel center locks. Grey six-piston brakes provide the stopping power.
A new hatchback design is highly functional, giving the concept a dual personality: a beast at the track that can still meet every day needs. The design, along with rear seats that fold flat, offer unexpected utility and storage capacity from a muscle car.
The 12.3-inch center screen, the largest featured in a Dodge vehicle, angles nearly ten degrees towards the driver, and the 16-inch instrument cluster is curved, creating a cocooned, driver-focused feel. An 8-by-3-inch Head-up Display (HUD) puts additional vehicle information where the driver needs it. The slim, instrument panel (IP) and midbolster in Ultraviolet color with blue and silver accent stitching feature a “waterline” that extends cross car. The upper IP is a step higher, an elevation change that creates a sculptural surface floating above the cluster. The Ultraviolet color also touches multiple interior surfaces, such as the console, doors and seats, creating a halo that works with the Attitude Adjustment Lighting™ to enhance shadows and highlights.
A parametric texture unites the interior and provides a connection to the exterior by continuing the inspiration of the 1968 Charger grille detail on the inside. The parametric pattern adds fluidity and sculpture, spanning from the IP to door appliques, beneath the console and continuing to the rear armrests and rear console. The dynamic interior texture has a three-dimensional quality that bounces light and is reactive to the environment, with lines that radiate as they move rearward. Ambient Attitude Adjustment Lighting™ illuminates the texture from below, playing with depth and dimension.
Circuit-like graphics originate on the carbon fiber floor and are strategically placed to surround occupants, flowing under the seats, moving to the center console and IP, and coming back to the driver, a subtle detail that acts as a circuit board, connecting one to another. A unique lightning bolt shape on the accelerator pedal hints at the concept’s electrified powertrain, as does the dual Blue Plasma and Silver stitching that surrounds the entire interior. Carbon fiber door sills feature illuminated white Daytona lettering, with lighted Daytona lettering also found at the top right of the mid-bezel.
Doors and center console follow the sculptural design theme, including only the needed elements. A pass-through area under the console creates a much lighter feel, and clever center console touches include a jet-fighter inspired cap that flips up when engaging the start button. The unique pistol-grip shifter is inspired by the past but with a
modern execution, functioning as a mechanical precision piece that delivers an effortless shift experience when squeezing the pistol grip’s trigger.
A new steering wheel design offers a thinner feel, with a flat top and bottom. The center spoke of the steering wheel is not connected to the rim, giving the steering wheel a floating feel. Paddle shifters are mounted on the steering wheel, with the PowerShot button on the right and drive mode controls on the left. Like the doors, the steering wheel features capacitive touch controls. An illuminated red SRT logo lights up the steering wheel center.
Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept seats are lightweight, race-inspired and slim in design, with an insert that features an abstract, perforated pattern of the Fratzog logo. The unique pattern fades out as it travels down the seat and reappears as it flows toward the center of the seatbacks. The upper seatbacks feature openings and seat bolsters that provide an airy, race-oriented feel, while holding occupants.
The panoramic glass roof gives an open-air feel to the Charger Daytona SRT Concept, helping to include rear passengers in the vehicle experience. The parametric interior texture extends to the headliner surrounding and accentuating the glass area. The carbon fiber “tub” floor and hatch are race-inspired lightweight features, and the large cargo area along with fold-flat rear seats provides more storage space than any previous Dodge muscle car.
Immersive, Electrified User Experience
The Charger Daytona SRT Concept’s cockpit immerses the driver’s sensory experience through performance sounds, lighting features and vehicle displays.
A simple one-button press on the steering wheel lets the driver pick from Auto, Sport, Track and Drag modes, instantly changing the driving dynamics, instrument cluster information, HUD content, performance sound and interior lighting features of the vehicle.

Artist on the rise, EMELINE returns today with her strong-minded and sensually charged new single “Strut” and its accompanying video. Listen HERE and check out the visual HERE.
Co-written by EMELINE, “Strut” finds the Los Angeles-based artist fully owning her sexuality and turning the track’s chorus into a supremely catchy statement of freedom: “I don’t do the walk of shame, I strut.” A dance-ready anthem of self-celebration, “Strut” follows the Rhode Island-born singer/songwriter’s viral smash hit “cinderella’s dead” — an early-2022 release that is fast approaching 100 million combined global streams, over 500 million TikTok views and hit the Top 20 of the Spotify Daily Viral chart and Top 25 on the US Spotify Viral 50 chart. In June, EMELINE was also featured in the Queer Music Week edition of MTV News Presents: Rising.
In a departure from the slow-burning dark-pop of “cinderella’s dead,” “Strut” brings EMELINE’s breathy vocals and sophisticated wordplay to a high-energy backdrop of diamond-hard beats, glistening synth, and retro-flavored horns. Both playful and unapologetic, the result is the latest proof of EMELINE’s gift for transforming self-reflection into spellbinding songs with a powerful impact.
Co-directed by EMELINE and Kate Zamudio, the video for “Strut” follows the free-spirited phenomenon as she struts along city streets, endlessly turning heads with her unbridled confidence. A glorious explosion of pink, the visual also captures EMELINE making out in a vintage car and an old-school phone booth, ultimately inspiring the scandalized bystanders to shake off their inhibitions and dance along with her.
EMELINE has announced a string of US shows in October, with performances at NYC’s Mercury Lounge, Chicago’s Schubas Tavern and the Moroccan Lounge in Los Angeles- tickets available here and dates are below.
Along with “cinderella’s dead” (hailed by Ones To Watch as an “irresistible anthem to rediscovering yourself”), EMELINE’s past output includes “what it means to be a girl” (a December release that speaks out on her experience as a young woman in a dangerously toxic culture) and “this is how i learn to say no” (a massively inspiring anthem for setting boundaries and reclaiming your power) which immediately established EMELINE as a self-possessed artist who’s entirely fearless when it comes to speaking her truth.
A multi-instrumentalist who plays guitar and piano, EMELINE first broke through with her hypnotic single “flowers & sex”: a June 2021 release that hit #4 on Spotify’s U.S. Viral 50 chart, surpassed 10 million global streams within just eight weeks, landed on nearly 30 Spotify editorial playlists, and earned critical praise from outlets like Earmilk and Paper (who noted that the “blunt pop anthem…arrives at a time when people are craving a little self-love and a lot of sexual pleasure after a year of endless isolation”). With her gritty honesty and empowered vulnerability, EMELINE is now at work on more new music driven by her mission of uplifting and supporting women everywhere.
The urban exponents Jeremy G and Catalyna join their voices for the first time to present their new song “Libro“, a song that refers to how the singer made a book thanks to the stories lived in past relationships and the memories of an intense love.
Recently, Jeremy G consolidated his career in the urban music industry, debuting with his single “Desnuda”.“Libro“ is the artist’s second promotional song, under the record label “Y Entertainment” owned by the famous urban-living legend Yandel, a label to which the Puerto Rican singer Catalyna also belongs. Catalyna has collaborated with great artists of the urban industry such as Guaynaa, Yandel, Farina, and others. Her new song “Castigada” along with Young Miko and Cory has been a total success, with more than 3 million views just one month after its premiere.
“I am super happy with this single, being able to present my second song is a privilege, I love what I do, and I get very excited every time new music comes out. Catalyna gave an incredible touch to the song; I feel that it’s just perfect. I also love her work; I hope this is the beginning of many collaborations”. Expressed Jeremy G.

Fortunately, the story has a happy ending because, many years later, they are able to reunite. “Libro“ is available on all digital platforms.
