Pre-Save Stagger EP HERE, Stream “FYB” HERE

After emerging as one of the most quietly disruptive forces in culture, GRAMMY® Award-nominated alternative insurgent Poppy will unleash her new Stagger EP on October 14, 2022. It notably marks her debut for LAVA Records/Republic Records.

She comes out of the gate swinging with the new single “FYB. Powered by a thrash-and-burn punk riff, a barrage of distortion grinds up against her insidiously melodic delivery. It cycles through a hypnotic hook as she repeats, “Fuck the world, it’ll just fuck you back. A fittingly captivating visual accompanies the track. In the clip, Poppy walks on a spinning animated globe under the glow of lively hand-drawn planets.

“FYB” stands out as something of a clarion call for the multi-faceted maverick as it sets the stage for a whole lot more to come this year and in 2023.

ABOUT POPPY:
Poppy has no regard for convention, genres, labels, assumptions, or expectations. Instead, she eclipses all of them in the flames of an intensely uncompromising creative spirit with no rival. By burning everything down and building a vision of her own out of the ashes, she represents a future where high art and high fashion equal subversion of the highest order. Following a quiet grind, she reached critical mass with I Disagree.

Standout “BLOODMONEY” even garnered a GRAMMY® nod for “Best Metal Performance, lifting her to rarified air as the “first-ever solo female artist nominated in the category.At the same time, she electrified the stage at the GRAMMY® Awards. Throughout 2021, Poppy only maintained her momentum with the EAT (NXT Soundtrack) EP, Flux, and So Mean EP. She steered the vision entirely—from the aesthetic to personally directing multiple videos. Infiltrating the mainstream, she has notably collaborated with Victor and Rolf on the Flowerbomb fragrance with L’Oreal and with KOI Footwear on two pairs of signature shoes. Casting a shadow over multiple forms of media, she has also penned two graphic novels, Genesis One and Poppy’s Inferno, and her short film I’m Poppy premiered at Sundance Film Festival during 2019.

As always, she only looks forward with the release of Stagger EP and the dawn of a new chapter unlike anything else you’ve heard, seen, or felt before. Poppy is here.

Chace's New Single "MARIYA" via 360 MAGAZINE

CHACE – MARIYA

CHINA’S BIGGEST DANCE ARTIST CHACE RELEASES NEW SINGLE/VIDEO “MARIYA”

LISTEN HERE WATCH HERE

Today Chinese electronic producer/singer-songwriter, Chace releases the brooding track “Mariya” off his forthcoming debut album. “Mariya” comes with an accompanying eerie visual
“Mariya” continues to tease the overall mysterious tone of the album following the previous single
In My Head.” It contains a mood rendering and psychedelic inducing tonality. On “Mariya” Chace does it all. He arranged the music, wrote the lyrics, and sings and producers on it.

The whole song shows the charm of “Mariya” from the central perspective of the suitor seen in the video. The deep and magnetic voice creates an empty and blurred atmosphere with the bouncing light.

With each track, Chace continues to pave his way as one of the forerunners of a forward-thinking generation of artists in Asia melding Western influences with their own sounds. A self-taught producer and songwriter, he has collaborated with TchamiYellow Claw, and Moksi. When he was 17 years old, he became the first Chinese DJ to play Belgium’s iconic Tomorrowland festival in 2017. Since releasing his debut EP DestinationChace’s music: a delirious mix of evocative house, UK garage, and pop has earned him praise from tastemakers across the world. Billboard dubbed him a “pop and dance music prodigy,” COMPLEX called him a “Rapidly rising producer,” and VICE stated that he’s “The face of China’s rising EDM scene.” In 2021, DJ Mag China named him producer of the year.

Multi-platinum-selling global superstar Khalid, who was named one of Time’s Most Influential People of 2019, has taken the world by storm since his first single, the certified diamond “Location” (released right before his high school graduation) exploded onto the scene leading to a major label deal with Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records followed by the release of his debut album, the 4x platinum-certified, American Teen. His sophomore album Free Spirit, released to critical acclaim in 2019, was declared a New York Times “Critic’s Pick” and was called “superb” by the Associated Press. The album, which has been certified platinum by the RIAA, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and features the GRAMMY-nominated multi-format #1 single “Talk”. Free Spirit has garnered over 13.4 billion streams worldwide.

LIL BABY'S "THE WORLD IS YOURS TO TAKE" VIA 360 MAGAZINE

Lil Baby – The World Is Yours To Take x FIFA

Lil Baby Drops New Single “The World Is Yours To Take” To Be Featured on Official FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Soundtrack

The Grammy-nominated rapper partners with Budweiser to release inspiring anthem for the upcoming FIFA World Cup

Today, Grammy-nominated rapper, mogul, and philanthropist Lil Baby is partnering with Budweiser to release “The World Is Yours To Take,” a new single that will be featured on the first-ever Official FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. Soundtrack and in campaign content from Budweiser, The Official Beer of the FIFA World Cup. The high-energy anthem samples the iconic chorus from the hit song “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” by Tears For Fears, inspiring fans to begin their journey towards greatness. The pop song transcends generations and geography, punctuating the go-getter energy Budweiser and Lil Baby were after for the collaborative track.

Listen to “The World Is Yours To Take” HERE and watch the lyric music video HERE.

Four years ago, sports fans around the world were gathering for the 2018 FIFA World Cup just as Lil Baby began on his path to superstardom with the release of his first album. Now, the Atlanta native and globally recognized rap phenomenon is using the global stage of the FIFA World Cup and partnership with Budweiser to reflect on his journey and inspire fans to go for it.

“My new track with Budweiser for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Soundtrack is a special one for me. It is about the journey we’ve all been on over the last few years and celebrating what’s next. When I started in music in 2017, I went all in on a dream that brought me to where I am now, and that’s what I want fans to feel when they hear the song. I hope it makes you feel like you’re walking out onto the pitch at the World Cup making moves toward your own dreams, whatever that means to you,” said Lil Baby.

One of only eight singles featured on the Official FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Soundtrack, “The World Is Yours To Take” will be celebrated on Lil Baby’s 28 birthday with a live performance at the Budweiser Hotel at the tournament. Budweiser and Lil Baby aren’t stopping at a global hit single; the pair will team up with amazing artists around the world to release new versions of the song and shoot the music video at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar that will take place from November 20 until December 18, 2022.

ABOUT LIL BABY:

Some artists define a genre, but Lil Baby defines a generation. The GRAMMY Award-winning rapper has smashed records, made history, and impacted the course of modern hip-hop with his instantly identifiable and inimitable style. He has garnered dozens of multi platinum certifications and tens of billions of streams as arguably the biggest new rapper to emerge this decade. Following the success of his platinum full-length debut Harder Than Ever in 2018, he seized #1 on the Billboard Top 200 with 2020’s My Turn, becoming “the year’s #1 selling and #1 streaming album in the US.” At first, it cemented him as “2020’s first and only artist to go double-platinum,” but it has since gone quadruple-platinum and has logged 85 weeks in the top 10 of the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, marking the longest top-tier run in the chart’s history.

He notably tied Prince and Paul McCartney for Billboard Hot 100 hits and Taylor Swift for “most weeks atop the Billboard Top 200 in 2020” with a total of 6. Out of eight nominations, he scored his first GRAMMY Award in 2022. He has appeared on the covers of Rolling Stone and the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Power Players Issue in addition to receiving honors from VEVO, Rap Caviar, the Apple Music Awards, and more. He teamed up with Lil Durk for The Voice of the Heroes, marking his second #1 debut on the Billboard Top 200. It’s just the beginning though. He’s bound to revolutionize the culture again with his third album in 2022. Most recently, he released “Right On” and “In A Minute” which both songs debuted on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. This feat puts Lil Baby in rare territory, making him the youngest of only 12 artists to have ever landed 100 or more songs on the Hot 100. This generation belongs to Lil Baby.

Rini Jain, South Asian Content Creator and American Influencer Award Nominee, attends New York Fashion Week, culminating with an exclusive by 360 MAGAZINE.

Rini Jain Storms NYFW SS23

By Krish Narsinghani, Vaughn Lowery, Dhruv Bhatia

Creator and fashion influencer/model, Rini Jain, covers this year’s New York Fashion Week with 360 Magazine. We sat down with her to hear all the hot takes and highlights on one of fashion’s biggest weeks.

What shows did you attend at this year’s NYFW?

I was thrilled to be a part of some amazing shows this season like  Pamella Roland, Dennis Basso, Homolog, Selkie, Tia Adeola, Rebecca Minkoff, Tiffany Brown, June79, Melke, Revolve, Bruce Glen, Deity, Leonardo 5th Avenue, and more. I also attended Vogue Magazine’s 130th Anniversary Celebration hosted by Vogue Club. I made sure to catch the glimpses online for some of the other shows that I was invited to, but missed attending those due to conflicts, NYC weather, and traffic like Frederick Anderson, Cucculelli Shaheen, Willy Chavarria, Blonds, KGL (and a few more).

How was this season different from the last season?  

The number of runways, presentations, after-parties, and private viewings was clearly high enough to make up for two pandemic years. The waiting lines and guest lists both seemed more inflated than in the past seasons. Even though the central location of NYFW remained Spring Studios, there were more shows this season that were offsite which made it extremely difficult to commute from one show to the other. There were more Influencers and Content Creators in attendance, highlighting how digital content has been instrumental in helping brands move products. This season, I personally had a record number of show invites and collaborations with designers to wear their pieces during NYFW. Also, NYFW was more international this season with two major Italian houses in the list – Fendi and Marni.

Who were you most excited to see and why?

I was most excited for Pamella Roland and Dennis Basso not only because I truly relate to the unapologetic glamour and glitz in their collections, but also since it was the milestone year and show for both of them. It has been 20 years, and 40 years for Pamella DeVos and Dennis Basso respectively since they launched their own fashion labels. While Pamella Roland set was inspired by the streets of New York with a backdrop that looked like a flower stand, Dennis Basso showcase was at the incredible ballroom at the Pierre Hotel with no dearth of celebrities in attendance – everybody from Martha Stewart, to Kris Jenner, to Carmen Dell’Orefice, and more.

What looks stood out to you?

There were so many. Amongst the shows I attended – Dennis Basso’s furry outerwear, and Pamella Roland’s feather detailing was interestingly used in the pieces. I loved the rich colors and dramatic, avant-garde designs of Melke. I am totally eyeing the ruffles, bows, frills, oversized collars, and bags that resembled pillows from the Selkie showcase. Also, I loved Tia Adeola’s take on knitted fabrics, cutouts, and body-cons. From some of the other shows – I absolutely loved Tom Ford’s look for Bella and Gigi Hadid, and the hot pink suit was so stunning. The patchwork pieces at Coach, and the purple and green sequin look at Fendi certainly caught my eye. Peter Do’s opening look was absolutely magical, a perfect example of fluid tailoring. I also loved Tibi’s stab at menswear, especially the full-denim perfectly baggy look. Marni’s ultra-flared velvet jeans featuring artwork of Flaminia Veronesi was a highlight for sure. 

Were there recurring themes or trends that caught your eye?

Fringes, Cargo Trousers, Sequins, Feathers, plenty of Back-to-School looks, and the color Purple were definitely some of the common trends amongst many shows. 

Which designers did you wear? 

I wore pieces from Ivan Young, Oroy Shakhidi, Bani Pasricha, Kerry Parker, Nirmooha, MAM, Misa Harada, Uncuffed Leather. 

Why did you pick those designers?

I chose a mix of designers and brands that are creatively different and unique from each other, represent different visions, cultures, the pieces that will allow me to experiment and style the looks uniquely, and allow me to present my personal style and creativity. I relate so much to the flamboyance and elegance of the pieces from Ivan Young. At the same time, I was so intrigued with how uniquely Oroy Shakhidi constructs a piece, and its opulent finishes. MAM, Misa Harada, Kerry Parker are some of the brands that allow me to bring that element of “statement” in my looks with their accessories. With Uncuffed Leather, I relate so much with the immigrant story of the designer Olga Barsky, and its vision to create pieces and accessories with sustainable leather. Every season, I make sure I wear a few pieces that represent my South Asian/Indian roots, hence Nirmooha and Bani Pasricha, that I absolutely love. 

What was your vision behind each look?

I usually get inspired from previous eras, mannequins, runways, movies, art and more for my looks. You may describe my style “Mix Match” because I love to create my own looks that are inspired from multiple things at the same time. If I had to describe my look for the Selkie show this season, I would  say “Barbie meets Royal Family”, where I paired a Ruffles Pink Checkered set with feathers details, with gloves that had flower details and a Hat to give it a Royal Family vibe. For another look, I created a modern Audrey Hepburn by pairing a black velvet dress with power shoulders, paired with a statement pearl body necklace. For shows like Dennis Basso, and Pamella Roland, I created an extremely sophisticated, flamboyant, elegant, decadent vibe that totally fit into the vibe of the shows I was attending, by wearing a statement dress embellished with ostrich feathers. 

Were any of your outfits influenced by your South Asian background?

Yes, absolutely! I make it a point to represent my culture and showcase amazing Indian designers through at least one of my looks every season. This time I wore a stunning saree from Nirmooha and styled it in a very unique way with gold accessories like gloves, handbag, and vintage earrings. The outfit was an absolute show stealer and garnered compliments from the attendees of the event hosted by Afterpay, the official partners of NYFW, and was also covered by various media houses including Getty Images. 

Why is it important for you to attend Fashion Week?

I am a Fashion Student at heart. I learn something new from every single show I attend, and get inspired to create better. It is a huge opportunity for me to connect with amazing brands and designers, network with like-minded people, have fun and get more creative and experimental with my own outfits during the Fashion Week.

Five Things You Didn’t Know About the Cosmetics Industry

Makeup enhances your natural beauty and can elevate your self-esteem and confidence. When you look better, you feel better most of the time. The cosmetics industry has remained a booming business throughout the ages and shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, there are more beauty products on the market today than ever before, and online shopping has opened the doors for new brands to make themselves known.

Here are some things you may not already know about the cosmetics industry. Basically, it all comes down to buyer beware.

  1. Where It All Began
    The cosmetics industry began in ancient Egypt, although the business as we know it today started in the 1920s. Egyptians considered daily regimes of cosmetic products as ceremonial and symbolic of their health. Their use of sunscreen and eyeshadow was esteemed across social classes and didn’t discriminate against gender.

Ancient Egyptians, like Cleopatra, valued cleanliness and appearance, and this became a symbol of luxury and power. Some claim Cleopatra soaked her ship’s sails in her perfume to announce her arrival. Egyptians began using breath mints, toothpaste, personal hygiene forms and makeup to improve their appearance.

Ancient Roman women began using belladonna, a toxic poison, for cosmetic purposes. These women put drops of belladonna in their eyes to dilate their pupils to make them appear larger and more appealing.

  1. Packaging of Products
    Some cosmetic conglomerates prey on people’s insecurities and falsely claim what their ingredients can do. Most consumers are willing to pay top dollar for the best products to put on their skin to make them look and feel young. Does that make it OK for the beauty industry to target customers with their propaganda? How do you differentiate what is true from false?

Luxury brands are often seen as the better option. A higher price tag and a more prominent name means cleaner ingredients and better products, right? That assumption is plagued by marketing techniques that are not always correct.

Many affordable drugstore beauty products are equally as effective as their expensive counterparts. All it takes is a little research to find items that will suit your needs.

Most manufacturing of personal care products happens in warehouses and factories with quality packaging. Some brands have independent product formulas, so others cannot match them. Typically, one factory makes items for multiple brands.

  1. Play on Words
    The cosmetics industry uses greenwashing marketing terms that are vague for ulterior motives. Every business aims to make a profit. However, some companies seek to make a quick buck from your naivety in believing their hype.

Hypoallergenic and organic are not all-encompassing — there are so many chemicals in beauty products. Unscented isn’t the same thing as fragrance-free. The industry uses fragrances to cover up the smell of chemicals in its products, so unless the label clearly states the product is free of scent, it is most likely not.

Cosmetics companies can claim products are dermatologist-approved without any legal backing. These businesses could involve one dermatologist in the trial or testing of a product and then make this statement. You cannot believe that a product is safe to use simply because it claims to get a doctor’s OK.

Marketing terms like nontoxic, clinically tested and natural are all part of a larger scheme to mislead consumers into buying their products. Do your due diligence and read labels thoroughly to know what you purchase. Don’t buy into the hype simply because of the claims. You might be surprised what you can find in some beauty products that are supposed to be safe and cruelty-free.

  1. Anti-Aging Products
    Some products can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but anti-aging merchandise cannot turn back the clock and make your skin appear younger than it is. If they had this capability, they would need drug classification and a stamp of approval from the FDA.

Companies that market and sell products claiming to reverse or prevent aging are unrealistic. These items cannot change the structure of your skin. There isn’t sufficient evidence to back any of these claims.

There are so many product ingredients that it can be overwhelming and challenging to find what works best for you. Various skin types react to chemicals differently. Your best bet would be to check with your dermatologist to see what they can recommend for you.

Sunscreen is the best preventive measure you can use to protect your skin from the effects of aging. It has anti-aging properties that are essential for your skin, regardless of how old you are. Damage from the sun can accelerate skin damage.

Anti-aging products are typically targeted at older generations who should have been using them for years already to experience any effects or see any benefits.

  1. FDA-Approved Items
    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates beauty products through the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA). However, the FDA doesn’t have to approve cosmetics that don’t have color additives before they are put on the market.

Most beauty products are not FDA-approved and contain many harmful chemicals that you slather onto your skin, falsely thinking they’re safe. On the contrary, some European countries ban cosmetic companies from using over 1,000 toxic chemicals in their products.

It’s a shame that the U.S. doesn’t have the same regard for prioritizing what people use on their skin. It has to approve the food we consume, so why are skin products any different?

It doesn’t quite add up, but it is a leading reason why the cosmetic industry can use greenwashing marketing terms so freely. The ingredient labels on your beauty products are of utmost importance, and you should thoroughly read them before you purchase and use them.

On average, people apply hundreds of chemicals to their bodies daily. From shampoo to makeup to deodorant, they use many harmful things with no repercussions for the industry supplying them. Since these products don’t have to be approved by the FDA, there is no standard for holding companies accountable.

TikTok Star Tyler Regan featured in 360 MAGAZINE

CORNELLIAN TURNED COMEDIAN

Breakout Comedian and TikTok Star Tyler Regan‘s one man skits have amassed over half a billion views

Tyler Regan‘s one-man-show of comedic brilliance coupled with naturalistic writing skills has amassed him a sort of cult-like following with 1.4 million TikTok followers and over 2 million followers across all his social media platforms. His comedy-centric content now has over half a billion cumulative views with topics ranging from office etiquette to Karens.

Although the Cornell University alum has been creating videos since 2017, he’s best known for his solid mix of commentary on politics and current events and clever representation of awkward everyday life experiences. “Finding your voice is a journey,” Tyler says, “… And it wasn’t until the pandemic forced my content to become a one-man show that I truly found mine.”

Having grown up on a steady diet of Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Monty Python and Robin Williams, Tyler fell into the comedy profession by accident, quite literally. The realism in his subject matter and deadpan delivery was honed, in part by the misfortune of a college soccer sports injury. He understood how to identify and distill the humorous elements of everyday life to tell relevant stories because, as Robin Williams says, “Comedy can be a cathartic way to deal with personal trauma.”

The Philly native is currently filming social media content from a vintage 1976 Airstream while on a cross country trip with his girlfriend but when he returns to Los Angeles, he will continue to parlay his online fame into off-line opportunities that encompass collaborative creative writing for film/tv, as well as other multimedia projects.

Pursuing his comedy dreams in the face of despair, Tyler has the potential to occupy a place in America’s cultural heart.

ABOUT TYLER REGAN

For Tyler Regan, a career in comedy was not on his radar. He spent his adolescent and young adult years in Philadelphia tirelessly preparing to become a professional soccer player. However, at the dawn of his childhood vision becoming a reality, he suffered a devastating ankle injury that forced him into premature retirement.

In 2015, Tyler pursued a master’s degree in engineering from Drexel University and settled into an assistant project manager position. Tyler’s then girlfriend was a content creator who encouraged him to craft and post comical videos to his social media platform. He looked at the opportunity as an outlet to escape the boredom of his 9-to-5 and be his authentically weird self. It wasn’t long before his brand of humor attracted an audience and took on a life of its own, which prompted a move to Los Angeles in 2017 but imposter syndrome set in. While he always had an interest in the film/tv industry, even enrolling in film classes that lead to him composing an original screenplay he submitted to a film festival in his early teens and graduating from Cornell with a BA in media studies. 

Once in Hollywood, Tyler continued to put in work by posting daily videos of witty skits alongside actors to his YouTube channel. His dedication and consistency boosted his popularity and kept his subscribers eagerly tuned in for 2 years but he still hadn’t found his niche. And then the pandemic hit. The digital entertainer used the lockdown to pivot to TikTok and build the kind of content he wanted to make with the confidence that his tribe would gravitate towards him.
