Puerto Rican urban breakthrough artist Javiielo released his debut album Santuario along with the single “BYE” featuring Omy De Oro. WATCH THE VIDEO HERE.
Excitement around Javiielo has never been higher with the latest release of his new 21 song album Santuario, cementing the young Puerto Rican’s place amongst Latin urban music’s elite. Led by the track “Bye” ft. Puerto Rican rapper Omy de Oro, Santuariotakes listeners on a raw and emotional journey about heartbreak, love, and life’s ups and downs.The featured single, “Bye” is a sexy song about courting a woman who seems unattainable due to her beauty and attributes, yet in the end Javiielo is confident enough to win her over with his smooth talk and seductive compliments.
The music visualizer, directed by Ness.PR, is as sexy as the song, showing Javiielo at ahouse party with his friends dancing, drinking and vibing out. The party-starter track illustrates Javiielo‘s musical diversity showing he can make a club hit with as much addictive potency as his love songs.
With silky smooth vocals and a danceable reggaeton beat, “La Nota” featuring Brray, Joyce Santana, and Nekxum sets the tone for the start of the album, as they talk about having a good time and being with a woman. In “365” Javiielo declares his love for a woman, as he’s always talking about her at home, in the studio, in other countries, and misses her as he dreams about her everyday. In “En Read” Javiielo’s vocals create a clear melodic tone as he sings about having one night with a lover, but wanting another although the situation is complicated. Javiielo further explores a complicated situation in “Incompatibles” ft. Giglo y La Exce & Nekxum when he sings, “When I’m with another I think of you more // When you leave, I’m dying to have you” but this time he is emotionally exhausted and ready to move on, despite still missing his lover. He talks about being healed but not over the relationship, singing “We descended from heaven into an abyss.”
Santuario comes after the release of his last three singles, which totaled over 10M+ streams. With this new album, Javiielo is looking to replicate the success of the last collaboration and smash hit remix of his song “Pa Los Gustos Los Colores” which generated over 100M+ plays worldwide. With the excitement of his album release, Javiielo is set to perform his new music at the Monitor Latino Music Awards on November 30th.

I wanted to tell a story of what it meant to be a man, growing and learning and dealing with my vices. Protecting my peace, while navigating the challenges of life. This song is a turning point in my mental journey. Addressing fears, seeking therapy, paying homage to those who are living.. its a lot to unpack in the verses but at the end of the day it feels so good to be alive and creating and I’m grateful for every moment.”

On August 19, The Last Artful, Dodgr(she/they)releases debut album Hits Of Today. Most recently, she tagged Young M.A for a new version of her previously released hard-hitting track “Cloverfield.” The album features “Cloverfield” and “Hullabaloo” produced by Take A Day Trip which were both released earlier this year. Dodgr also collaborated with Mark Ronson who produced “HOT” and Fred Ball who produced “You.” HIGHSNOBIETY commended Dodgr’s “exceptional, elastic voice and a bewitching grasp of melody.” With co-signs from Anderson .Paak, Mark Ronson, Portugal. The Man, and more, Dodgr is set for a breakthrough year. On the release of the album Dodgr states, “I gotta have a baby Pluto set of balls on me to name my debut album Hits of Today. Either that or I’m completely delusional. Guess we all have to be a lil’ delusional to keep picking ourselves up after the blows we take on the daily.”
An idea that sprouted from an acid trip in 2013, revealed itself to be much more than a collection of short, catchy songs that I had initially planned to create. Many heartaches & tower moments along the way would alter the course of the album’s narrative — turning it into a journey of experiencing and healing through heartbreak in the 21st Century. I played with genres like my exes played with my heart. so best believe there’s a “hit” for nearly every mood & everyone that listens.”

“LaZy, but i have goals” tells a true story of how North Ave Jax is on his way to becoming a big-time hero in the small town of Burlington, VT. The 10-track debut project journeys vicariously through the 20 year-old’s artistic ethos as well as his ability to resonate the sustenance of hunger and success. LISTENHERE
‘LaZy, but i have goals‘ fulfills the idea that goal setting and goal achieving are not dependent on whether you live in a small town. Through 10 tracks the mixtape serves to communicate a heart-felt understanding of those who may have lost their way or are struggling to find it as nothing worth having had come easy for North Ave Jax while growing up in section 8 housing on North Ave. Irrespective of him becoming one of the state’s best athletes, the 20 year-old carried himself stoically which led to a constant battle with his inner struggles of anxiety, substance abuse, and everything in between.
The debut mixtape characterizes North Ave Jax’s impactful lyricism through the dark experiences and situations he has gone through in which he has only been able to express musically. ‘LaZy, but i have goals‘ not only ventilates Jax’s thoughts and feelings to the world but also details the sustained effort of coming face to face with issues emanating from drug addiction and lack of self-love that inevitably led him to drop out of high school, lose touch with his friends, and completely isolating himself for the time-being.
This project builds purpose to individuals who assimilate to those factors of feeling inadequate to today’s societal standards. In the course of the mixtape’s themes, North Ave Jax wholeheartedly brings his vision and imagination to fruition as the dynamic duo of goal setting and goal achieving conceptualize that his goals are not one bit modest.
The audio visual for the mixtape’s focus track, “Eastside”, as narrated by hometown close friend and director Kelly Butts-Spirito, recounts the trials and tribulations of North Ave Jaxand how their genuineness bond and brotherhood has led them one step closer to their fondest dreams and ardent desires. Through their passion for creativity and humble beginnings filming music videos in an empty parking lot and recording freestyles on a gaming microphone, ‘LaZy, but i have goals‘ sends a broad message that growing up may not be what it seems and that it’s not too late to become the person that you actually are who you may want to be.
Over the last few months, North Ave Jax has had successful releases such as “Trust Nobody”, “Play Dumb”, and “The Fall”, as well as a complete 750 person sold-out hometown show at the Higher Ground Ballroom which took place April 16th in Vermont. North Ave Jax is only at the start of his career, stay tuned for more exciting announcements to come later this year.
