thuy – i hope u see this (deluxe)

Vietnamese singer-songwriter thuy (pronounced twee) released the deluxe edition of her critically-acclaimed debut EP, i hope u see this. The fourteen-track project is a reflection of thuy‘s truth, unraveling the complexities of love through a utopia of harmonies that spotlight heartbreak, love, empowerment, and self-confidence. i hope u see this (deluxe) introduces five more reasons as to how thuy is paving the future for modern R&B in her own right. 

“The deluxe project is a continuation of the theme that I’m closing the door on the past in order to enter a new chapter in my life,” thuy said with excitement about the deluxe EP.  

i hope u see this (deluxe) is a cohesive body of work that celebrates thuy‘s innate musicality. It’s a consistent approach, meant to be played in any setting that honors emotion. Songs like “distance between us” prove that thuy’s regaining control over those overwhelming thoughts and unwanted feelings that have sapped her energy over the years. Her smooth vocals permeate the work, flirting over bouncy percussion that grinds into a catchy hook with “inhibitions” featuring P-Lo

When trying to make sense of thuy, you’re introduced to a fiery songstress that’s capable of making the best out of a bad situation. “in my bag” featuring Destiny Rogers channels those elements of misfortune into a deeper meaning that encourages listeners to remain focused in the face of adversity.  Diving deeper into the remix, thuy explains, “the ‘in my bag’ remix with Destiny Rogers is a major women empowerment anthem and that’s why I knew I wanted to get another female artist on it. Destiny Rogers was the perfect feature for this remix; she just exudes confidence and drive. I wanted to really embody the idea that women can be bosses and to never count us out of anything because we always come out on top!”

Lute's deluxe "Gold Mouf" album cover art via Umusic for use by 360 Magazine

Lute – Gold Mouf Deluxe

After crafting an entrancing debut, headlined by his gripping issues with anxiety and self-doubt, North Carolina MC Lute quenched fans’ thirst for more music with his deluxe release of Gold Mouf, including “Luther’s Freestyle,” “Run It Back,” and “Like Wine.” The latter receives the visual treatment from 12VY as GRAMMY-Award winner DJ Drama bolsters Lute’s lyrical exercise with his braggadocios adlibs. Standing in front of a fleet of cars, including a cherry red BMW, Lute’s confidence reigns supreme as he barks at his detractors with a series of jabs: “Shit, so fuck who ain’t believin’ me/ Can never say I’m wack, ’cause you rap niggas never seein’ me.” “Like Wine” comes on the heels of Lute’s recently released videos “Eye to Eye” and “Changes.” Check out Lute’s latest offering HERE

The GRAMMY-nominated rapper’s newest project is just one of many exciting developments in recent weeks. Lute performed at the long-awaited return of the annual Dreamville Festival last month, with his set praised in a shoutout from Complex. He also joined his labelmates for two cuts on the D-Day: A Gangsta Grillz Mixtape compilation, which debuted in the top 5 of Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Top Rap Albums charts. 

With Gold Mouf Chronicles, Lute gets vulnerable about his battle with anxiety, and the toll it had on his family.  He also shares his bout with open-heart surgery that left his future up to fate. While the procedure was successful, Lute’s experiences have a lasting mental and physical impact. But rather than succumb to his fears, Lute valiantly wears his vulnerabilities on his sleeves, advancing his skills as an MC and deepening his connection with his fans

$kinny – Have A Nice Trip

Today, Los Angeles-based, Saudi-Arabian singer, rapper, songwriter, and producer $kinny drops his anxiously awaited new album Have A Nice Trip via Universal Arabic Music. The album was executive produced by Swizz Beatz—listen HERE.

The album features his new single Salam” with Swizz Beatz and French Montana, out today alongside the official music video—watch HERE. The video stars $kinny, Swizz Beatz, and French Montana and includes impressive video effects that portray iconic Saudi Arabian monuments and Arabic elements, allowing the three artists to continue to bring their Arabic culture into the mainstream.

On “Salam,” $kinny says, “‘Salam’ is a magical record. It started off with an Instagram post from Swizz listening to my song. He sent me a direct message, and we ended up in a studio that same night. It was one of the greatest moments in my career so far. We played that song at least 100+ times that night!”

Swizz Beatz comments, “Being the executive producer of Have a Nice Trip was easy because $kinny is super talented. He’s not just an artist, he writes and produces, which made the process even better!! My favorite part of making ‘Salam’ was the energy the record has. I know it will give off!!” French Montana adds, “That hook represents everything I stand for.”

Today, Variety ran an exclusive piece on the new single and album—read it HERE.

$kinny presents Saudi culture from a fresh perspective, infusing the traditions, inspirations, and sounds of his heritage into an otherworldly brand of hip-hop irreverent of borders and boundaries, yet firmly rooted in the future. He says, “My vision is to make timeless music. From hard energetic records to smooth melodic vibes that take you for a ride, I’m here to push the envelope and give the world a new vibe. I hope my music helps my fans go through the bad and good times. I want my songs to be there for them when they’re happy or sad… also that they should be confident in who they are and always be themselves, dreams come true so be careful what you wish for.”

In March, $kinny dropped his first two singles from the album, “Saudi Most Wanted” and TAMAM” feat. Fat Money. The songs were released with music videos, which instantly trended at #1 and #3 respectively on YouTube in Saudi Arabia upon release. On Have A Nice Trip, he blends cultures and brings people together like never before. Additional collaborations on the album include Belly and King Bach. It follows $kinny’s 2020 single “My Blocka” and breakout projects, 2017’s Late Night Blvd  EP and 2019’s Thank You For Nothing.

Stay tuned for more to come from the buzzing artist this year.

ABOUT $KINNY
Music delivered solace for $kinny, and he consistently reciprocates now. The Saudi-Arabian artist grew up in Los Angeles as the child of an American mom and Saudi-Arabian dad. As such, he experienced life in between philosophies, traditions, and cultures. In the midst of this ebb and flow, he embraced music wholeheartedly. Since emerging in 2015, he has generated tens of millions of streams and incited tastemaker applause from the likes of The FADERViceXXL MagazineHotNewHipHop, and more. 2017’s Late Night Blvd EP saw him go bar for bar with titans such as Freddie Gibbs and Ice T. However, Thank You For Nothing established him as an international force to be reckoned with. It clinched #1 on Apple Music Middle East as the banger “Never Snitch (Alhumdulilah)” vaulted to #1 on Apple Music Middle East and took over YouTube as #1 on Trending. As a producer, his influence can be felt across Belly’s See You Next Wednesday as he cooked up Die For It” feat. The Weeknd & Nas and Money Table” feat. Benny the Butcher. Signing to Universal Arabic Music, he ignites his biggest and boldest chapter yet in 2022 with his new album Have A Nice Trip, featuring his latest single “Salam” with Swizz Beatz & French Montana.

Legendaddy Garners 600M Streams

Daddy Yankee‘s critically acclaimed chart-topping magnum opus and final album, LEGENDADDY, has already eclipsed 600 million global streams and counting in less than a month! Speaking to the excitement around the last chapter of his genre-defining career, his farewell tour, “LA ÚLTIMA VUELTA” (The Last Round), has already sold out in advance of its launch this summer. He also recently shared the music video for “X ÚLTIMA VEZ” with Bad Bunny. It has generated 40 million-plus views thus far.

Upon release, LEGENDADDY landed as the #1 Latin Album in the World! It bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top Latin Albums Chart, arriving as his fifth consecutive #1 debut on the respective chart. Additionally, it catapulted into the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 at #8, marking his highest position on the chart to date and the first Top 10 in 15 years since 2007’s El Cartel: The Big Boss. Additionally, it soared to #1 on the Spotify Weekly Top Albums Chart.

LEGENDADDY incited widespread critical applause. Variety proclaimed, “Spanning over three decades of music, the 19-track collection captures the essence of reggaeton, salsa, dancehall, rap, trap, bachata, EDM, and Caribbean influencers,” and The New York Times noted, “The most dynamic moments come when Yankee reaches for the magic of the past—whether indulging in boastful hubris or summoning listeners into dance floor reverie.” Rolling Stone awarded the record “4-out-of-5 stars” and raved, “He’s going out in a blaze of glory.

Right out of the gate, LEGENDADDY took over Spotify worldwide, ascending to #1 on the Global Album Chart, achieving the biggest streaming day of his career on Spotify with a staggering 35.7 million streams—almost double his prior career best. The album reached #1 in 19 markets, including Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Mexico, Spain and more on Apple Music‘s all-genres list. Additionally, five of the album’s music videos have vaulted into the Top 10 on YouTube. He has bested his own personal records with the album—and it has only just begun to catch fire too.

Listen to LEGENDADDY HERE.

However, his goodbye is hardly an occasion for tears. Instead, LEGENDADDY might just be the biggest part of the century as he invites a variety of A-list friends to celebrate over three decades of music on this 19-track opus. To herald the record’s arrival, he accompanied the release with nine exhilarating and high-energy music videos for “AGUA,” “LA OLA,” “ZONA DEL PERREO,” “HOT,” “BOMBÓN,” “EL ABUSADOR DEL ABUSADOR,” “IMPARES,” and for his single: “REMIX.” The single’s head-nodding beat and reggaeton production underscore hard-hitting verses and a rafter-reaching refrain. It pops off as a banger on par with his most applauded output. The accompanying visual proves equally scorching, stylish, and sexy.

Watch all of the videos HERE.

From the epic Michael Buffer-led opener “LEGENDADDY” through the emotional finale “BLOKE,” LEGENDADDY traverses a myriad of styles and sounds made famous by Daddy Yankee throughout his iconic run thus far. Other highlights on the album include “CAMPEÓN,” which tackles his career and what it took for him to be a champion in the industry as well as his staple signature tropical fusion sound that he melds together so well with the Luny (Luny Tunes)-produced “RUMBATÓN.”

Not to mention, he attracted his most superb guest list yet. Rauw Alejandro and Nile Rodgers rolls through for “AGUA,” while he and Bad Bunny turn up on “X ÚLTIMA VEZ.” There’s also the unshakable and unforgettable “ZONA DE PERREO” with Natti Natasha and Becky G and “HOT” with Mr. Worldwide himself, Pitbull. Lil Jon and El Alfa team up for the international banger “BOMBÓN” and on “PASATIEMPO,” he links up with Myke Towers for an explosive anthem, while “PARA SIEMPRE” sees him turn up with Sech. He also collaborated with some of the industry’s hottest producers including Play-N-Skillz, Luny (Luny Tunes), Tainy, OMB, JBD, Dímelo Flow, Slow Mike, Nekxum, BK, Jhon El Diver, Wiso, Alex Killer, G.O.K.B., Maki Váez, Scott Summers, Chris Jedi, Gaby Music, Muzik Junkies, DJ Morphius and Blu Rey.

LEGENDADDY stands out as his first album in ten years and his boldest, brightest, and biggest musical statement ever.

For one last time, he will canvas the world on his sold-out “LA ÚLTIMA VUELTA” (The Last Round) tour. Promoted by Cardenas Marketing Network and Raphy Pina, MR Sold Out, the five-month trek includes some of the rapper/songwriters’ biggest headline shows in North America and Latin America to date.

On his retirement, Daddy Yankee said, “Today, I’m announcing my retirement from music by giving you my best production and concert tour. I will say goodbye celebrating these 32 years of experience with this new collector’s item, my album LEGENDADDY. I’m going to give you all the styles that have defined me in one single album.”

That album is LEGENDADDY, and it is here forever.

About Daddy Yankee

As a culture creator, game-changer, agent of change, and groundbreaker, Daddy Yankee has consistently inspired, impacted, and influenced generations of creators. An indisputable icon, he remains one of the most influential artists of all time, bringing reggaeton worldwide for the first time. Latin music and culture would not look, sound or feel the same without him. It’s hard to even imagine the genre itself without “Gasolina,” “Despacito” [with Luis Fonsi] or “Con Calma” [with Snow], and more.

Prateek Kuhad – Favorite Peeps

Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Prateek Kuhad has debuted new single ‘Favorite Peeps,’ the second offering from his upcoming album, The Way That Lovers Do, which is set for arrival on May 20th via Elektra Records. Recorded at Seattle’s secluded Bear Creek Studio with Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers, Vance Joy), the album features 11 brand-new tracks about human love, friendship, and connectivity. The Way That Lovers Do is available for preorder now via Elektra Records.

The deceptively light and sweet sounding ‘Favorite Peeps’ describes a low point in the singer’s life. “I realized how your friends and your family and people who love you , they can really help you push through the bad thoughts in your head,” Kuhad revealed. “And being there for them feels like a responsibility that gets you back on track.”

Last month, Kuhad shared intimate lead single ‘Just A Word,’ which arrived alongside a whimsical music video directed by Alex DiMarco (Khalid, Lauv, Wiz Khalifa). In celebration of the record, Kuhad also announced The Way That Lovers Do tour, a North American headline run which kicks off June 2nd in Dallas, TX. The monthlong trek includes a performance at Lodge Room in Los Angeles on June 7th before wrapping up at New York City’s Irving Plaza on June 28th.

April 19, Kuhad announced additional tour dates in San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto, and Boston due to overwhelming demand, with general on-sale for the new dates beginning Friday, April 22nd at 10am local time (tour itinerary below). For up-to-date ticketing information, please visit HERE.

Last year, Kuhad shared the Shehron Ke Raaz EP, a four-track collection that included an acoustic version of his 2020 breakout hit ‘Kasoor,’ and was heralded by singles ‘Tere Hi Hum’ and the EP’s title track. Kuhad returned to his Indian roots on the project, recording in Bombay and singing in Hindi as he explored the intimate, often hidden worlds that lovers create for themselves. In 2020, the artist announced his signing to Elektra Records, making history as the first solo Indian act to join the storied label. The news was heralded by the re-release of his 2018 breakthrough EP cold / mess, lauded by Atwood Magazine an “an utterly breathtaking, expansive piece of indie folk mastery.” The collection has racked up critical praise from NPRVultureBillboardUproxx, and former President Barack Obama, who featured ‘cold / mess on his 2019 Songs of the Year playlist.

About Prateek Kuhad

Hailed by Rolling Stone India as “one of the country’s leading singer-songwriters,” Prateek Kuhad has been quietly carving out a unique role for himself as a globally recognized pop musician from India for just over a decade. Originally from the northern city of Jaipur, Kuhad, who sings in Hindi and English, easily connects with fans of all ages and backgrounds.

Earning comparisons to indie balladeers like Sufjan Stevens and Jose Gonzalez, Kuhad has generated universal praise and accolades for his pop and folk-driven songs about love and desire in all its forms. His third studio album, The Way That Lovers Do, arrives May 20th via Elektra Records and features 11 brand-new tracks about human love, friendship, and connectivity. Recorded at Seattle’s secluded Bear Creek Studio with Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers, Vance Joy), Kuhad for the first time was writing and recording away from the circle of musicians he was accustomed to being around during the recording process. Ultimately, the process forced him to adapt and learn to work with a fresh set of collaborators, freeing his mind and arriving at Kuhadߣs most authentic album to date.

Prateek’s debut album In Tokens and Charms was an instant hit earning the artist an MTV Europe Music Award, Indie Album of the Year honors from iTunes, and the title of Best Pop Artist at the Radio City Freedom Awards. The album’s opening track, ‘Oh Love,’ captured first place in the prestigious International Songwriting Competition, which previously helped launch artists like Gotye and Passenger to global audiences. Kuhad has sold out auditorium and amphitheater dates across India, landed arena support slots with the likes of Alt-J and Mike Posner, and traveled the world for headline and festival performances in the US, UK, Australia, Singapore, Canada, and France.

Role Model – Rx

Role Model (a.k.a. Tucker Pillsbury) released his debut album, Rx. He also unveiled the music video for the title track.

His previous single “if jesus saves, she’s my type” amassed over 1.5M streams in its first week (Click HERE). Rx is an extremely dynamic body of work. Within it exists an underlying message about the power of a woman. Elements of religion, sex and love layer throughout. Find Role Model’s debut album at all digital retail providers via Interscope Records

Click HERE to listen. 

Role Model says about the album, “In the simplest terms, the album is about the power of a woman and how it healed me the past couple years. As much as it’s telling a story, it also shows the crazy shift in my life. A woman saved me and brought me out of a hole. Lyrically, I wanted to put her on a pedestal, like a higher power.”

The Music Video

The music video for “rx” presents an emotional, performance-based visual. It takes place during a long, lonely drive with a vulnerable Tucker at the wheel. As Tucker drives, the song builds as do his emotions, becoming especially triggered with each chorus. Towards the end of the song, the video cuts to a new frame revealing a girl has been sitting next to him in the car the entire time.

Role Model says about the music video, “I wrote the video to be as simple as it possibly could be. The focus should be on the lyrics and the emotion involved. I think the two frames sum it up perfectly.” In addition, Role Model announced his first-ever “TOURx 2022” World Tour. This is the artist’s most massive tour to date, as he will be performing at larger venues across the U.S., and he will be taking his incredible show overseas to the U.K. and Europe for the first time.
