JAXX – APPAREL

21-year-old artist Jaxx releases his new single “Apparel” featuring Tuxx. Filled with a hypnotic beat and an energetic dynamic, “Apparel” lets Jaxx’s talents shine through. Listen to “Apparel,” produced by Taz Taylor, Rio Leyva and FRANKIEONTHEGUITARHERE and watch the music video, directed by Daniel Jordan KHERE

Earlier in the year, Jaxx released his single “Too Often,” an impressive new single laced with braggadocio, slurred melodies, and a free sense of adventure. The single received early support from Billboard on Fresh Finds and Teen Vogue on Best New Music.  He followed the release with his second single “Autumn” which received support from Billboard again as well as Lyrical Lemonade, Daily Chiefers and others. 

About Jaxx:

Playful and confident, Jaxx combines expressive melodies and free associative flexes to deliver otherworldly anthems for dream chasers. The 21-year-old artist flashes his gifts on “Too Often,” a glittering new single laced with braggadocio, slurred melodies, and a free-wheeling sense of adventure. Modern, experimental, and casually resolute, the tracks reflect the impulses of an artist who picked up a rap career on a whim — which is pretty much what happened. 

Born and raised in Arizona, Jaxx was holding down a potential career as a pro skateboarder before he ever considered music. By Jaxx’s late teens, his older brother was making music of his own, and after seeing him perform, Jaxx found a new calling. After recording his first songs on an iPhone in a church parking lot, he got his first dose of attention when he released “Ride With Me,” a melodic rumination on loyalty. After the track collected over 100K streams, Jaxx built his momentum with subsequent singles like “Road 2 Nowhere” and “Like This!” After spending time in the studio with Internet Money, Jaxx unloaded “Domino,” an ethereal 2021 single that led to more momentum and the chance to level up like never before. 

Looking ahead, Jaxx wants the accoutrements of music superstardom. He also wants to be a source of relief for fans, a group that continues to multiply. Jaxx has the opportunity to build his community by hitting the studio with new ideas and a belief that his best work is ahead of him. “Since I’ve been making music, every song keeps getting better,” he shares. “I’m more excited to put out new music than I’ve ever been.”

NO1-NOAH × SUMMER WALKER

NO1-NOAH UNLEASHES HIS LONG-AWAITED VIDEO

“BONJOUR” FEATURING SUMMER WALKER

 “Bonjour” Lives on NOAH’s Captivating EP ‘You Should Come Over’

Singer-songwriter NO1-NOAH (Ghetto Earth Records/Interscope Records) steamrolls his way back into R&B contention with the video for his sweltering collaboration “Bonjour” with Summer Walker. The pair float on the flirtatious flex and blend NO1-NOAH’s enticing sensuality and self-assurance with Walker’s trademark honeyed vocals that fueled her to billions of career streams and multiple Billboard records in the last year. The video directed by Arman Mitchell and maliaSHUTup finds the melodic twosome enjoying a dinner party amongst friends after NOAH enjoys some quality time with the apple of his eye. “Bonjour” resides on NOAH’s seven-song collection You Should Come Over. Watch HERE

Along with “Bonjour,” NOAH has a fistful of highlights on his latest EP. First, he has “Bounce,” a braggadocious vibe set on an appropriately bouncy melodic beat, and “Thank God,” which has NO1-NOAH diving into the hip-hop lane, a sign of his genre versatility that will only develop with future projects. During this past BET Awards Weekend, NO1-NOAH hosted a mixer leading up to Summer Walker’s hotly anticipated A Hot Summer Night In LA at the Crypto.com Arena. There, the rising singer joined Summer onstage to perform their collaboration “Bonjour.”

After displaying beams of promise on Walker’s sizzling anthems, NO1-NOAH inked a deal with her label Ghetto Earth Records in December 2020. Her first artist, NO1-NOAH, looks to rattle the cages of R&B with his sticky hooks and mastery of contemporary R&B’s melodic stylings. Despite a young career, the newcomer has already skyrocketed to more than 130 million streams in the U.S. alone. The budding star also sharpened his live performance skills on the road with “The Summer Walker Series” concerts, which recently played dates in Houston, Chicago, and Dallas.

The promising songwriter was named one of Billboard’s 15 Hip-Hop & R&B Artists to Watch in 2020. Touted for his “ethereal vocals and intrepid lyricism,” NO1-NOAH first caused shockwaves in the R&B world when he appeared on Summer Walker’s EP Life on Earth on the standout tracks “SWV” and “White Tee.” He also recently joined Summer during her headlining set at The Roots Picnic earlier this month. With publications such as Rolling Stone and XXL already praising NO1-NOAH for his extraordinary talents, You Should Come Over heralds the coming of the newest star in the R&B universe.

DREAMER BOY – HUES

The unpredictable singer/songwriter Dreamer Boy breaks down the lingering emotions of a breakup on his reflective new single “HUES,” out on June 30, 2022 via slowplay / Harvest Records. Listen HERE. The brooding alternative-tinged track comes on the heels of his summery acoustic-pop anthem “JUMPSHOT!,” which showcases the Nashville-based artist’s immense versatility.

“Seeing your world change around you, being in and out of love, and seeing the good and bad from the person you are with is what HUES is about,” says Dreamer Boy. “The actual idea of the walls changing colors as you are magnetically connected to a person but seeing how the good may be slipping away. This song represents the push and pull of that relationship, even after feeling used, and only being there for them, you end up back at their place falling into their world again.”

On HUES,” Dreamer Boy (born Zach Taylor) captures the fallout of love freshly lost. Opening with a slithery electric riff, he soon reaches for his acoustic, letting loose a vulnerable lament. “I still smell your perfume,” he sings, the familiar fragrance keeping him second-guessing. Even with a 90’s-style record scratch cutting through the mood, the sadness is palpable as the track builds to a dramatic, electrified climax.

With HUES,” Dreamer Boy continues to flex his eclectic sonic palette, following “the perfect carefree summer anthem, dripping with nostalgia” of “JUMPSHOT! according to V Magazine and the thrilling synth-pop of “OVER EVERYTHING.” Previously, he teamed up with multi-Platinum New Zealand star BENEE on ARE YOU LETTING GO?,” a captivating collaboration that brings out the ethereal sensibilities of both shapeshifting artists.

The two are currently on the road together on a North American tour, which close out on June 30 in Los Angeles. On tour, Dreamer Boy has been performing his newest singles alongside tracks from his acclaimed 2021 album All the Ways We Are Together. As open and emotional as songs like HUES are, it’s been an opportunity to connect with even more hearts and minds.

Beyoncé – Renaissance

Recently, mega-star Beyoncé presented the artwork of her highly anticipated album, Renaissance.

Beyoncé stated in her Instagram post, “Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time in the world. It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving. My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration. I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to release the wiggle. Ha! And to feel as unique, strong, and sexy as you are.”

Rock The Bells, the global lifestyle brand and preeminent voce for classic and timeless Hip-Hop founded by LL COOL J, announces it has partnered with New York native street artist, Jay Shells, for a special Rock The Bells Festival themed edition of his viral “rap quotes” project.  

The project first launched in 2013, where multi-disciplinary artist, Jay Shells, began installing over thirty street signs with lyrical references to Hip-Hop songs at their appropriate NYC location. The project helped highlight Hip-Hop’s deep rooted connection to the streets, places and neighborhoods that fueled the creativity and lyrics behind the music. Over the past 9 years, the Rap Quotes project has expanded to other Hip-Hop hotbeds featuring iconic quotes from rap legends across Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Houston and Atlanta.

Last week, Jay Shells brought the “Rap Quotes” project back to New York City, in celebration of Black Music Month and the forthcoming Rock The Bells Festival, where he will post iconic quotes from the full Rock The Bells lineup which includes MC’s LL COOL J, Ice Cube, Rick Ross, Lil’ Kim, Cam’ron, Jim Jones and Juelz Santana from The Diplomats, Fat Joe, Remy Ma, Jadakiss, Scarface, Trina, N.O.R.E, Ladybug Mecca & Butterfly  Digable Planets and Roxanne Shanté. The Rap Quote street signs can be found across New York City, while they last. 

“The Rap Quotes campaign has become a creative journey that’s allowed me to discover a deeper understanding and connection to some of my favorite Hip Hop artists by providing additional context to their lyrics,” says artist Jay Shells. “I’m excited to be working with Rock The Bells during Black Music Month to celebrate the festival lineup and showcase their lyrics around New York City. As long as Hip Hop artists keep making new music, this public art campaign will never be done, and I’m excited to bring it to life in new and unique ways with partners that share the same vision.”

Rock The Bells Festival is a day-long celebration of Hip-Hop culture taking place Saturday, August 6, 2022, in Queens, New York – the week of Hip-Hop’s anniversary (August 11th). The experience will feature live performances, interactive experiences, art exhibits, food, fashion and much more.

The Spider-Verse Is Coming To A End via Mark Bagley for use by 360 MAGAZINE

END OF SPIDER VERSE

THE END OF THE SPIDER-VERSE IS UPON US! In the aftermath of EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE, the upcoming limited series that explores and introduces Spider-heroes from across the multiverse, comes a new ongoing series by two of Spider-Man’s most legendary creators—Dan Slott and Mark Bagley! Just in time for Spider-Man’s 60th anniversary, the two Spidey masterminds will be teaming up for the first time on Spidey to unleash the full potential of the Spider-Verse and its beloved heroes in SPIDER-MAN #1! The new saga will kick off when a threat emerges that will change the fate of Peter Parker and all his fellow Spider icons such as Spider-Woman, Ghost-Spider, Miles Morales, Silk, and more, including the new heroes that will debut in EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE. The series will also tie directly into the events of Zeb Wells and John Romita Jr.’s AMAZING SPIDER-MAN run, picking up plot elements such as Spidey’s new costume and his mysterious association with Norman Osborn!

Morlun is back and he is not alone. Allied with one of the most powerful beings known to the Spider-Verse, the scariest Spider-Villain of all time is making his biggest play and no Spider is safe. Especially not the Chosen Spider himself, Peter Parker. With Peter working for Norman Osborn and using a glider…does he have it coming?

Here’s what Slott had to say about his grand return to Spider-Man:

“How does it feel to be writing Spider-Man again? Like I’m home. Like there’s nowhere else I’d rather be. How does it feel to be working on it with Mark Bagley, one of the greatest Spidey icons of all-time?! Honored, excited, and unstoppable! Mark and I are two guys who live to tell Spider-Man stories. Cut us and we bleed Spider-Man. And now Marvel has entrusted the two of us to bring back their monthly– adjectiveless– SPIDER-MAN title!

“We are not going to let you down. We’re going to take BIG swings in each and every issue! And the first thing we’re doing, right out of the gate, is the Spider-Verse comic to END all Spider-Verse comics!

“THE END OF THE SPIDER-VERSE will see Peter, Miles, and your favorite characters from previous Spider-Verse stories, along with all-new characters from the upcoming EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE mini, slam them all together, and bring the entire SPIDER-VERSE saga to a fiery close! It’s going to have lots of action, surprises, but most of all, it’s going to have a lot of heart! Even though this story will be epic, it will also have a profound effect on Peter Parker. You are not going to want to miss this!”

“Dan and I have been wanting to work together for years, and having the opportunity to be the artist that is there to wrap up his Spider-verse storyline is really exciting,” Bagley added. “Further, I’m thrilled to see where this book takes us from there.”

Be there for the latest evolution of the Spider-Man mythos when SPIDER-MAN #1 swings into shops this October! For more information, visit HERE.

Retailers, don’t forget to order your copies of EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE #1 by Monday, July 4!
