Seventeen unveils medley

K-pop stage-breakers SEVENTEEN unveiled their highlight medley today, providing a glimpse into the 9 tracks on the act’s 4th studio album Face the Sun ahead of its arrival on May 27. 

The highlight medley opens with “Darl+ing,” the band’s first-ever English song released last month in advance. It soon segues into a highlight from the lead single “HOT,” a hip-hop based track that encapsulates a riveting listen into the band’s dedication and passion for the path they are on. 

The medley then unpacks the dynamic sonic profile of the 7 remaining tracks, seamlessly transitioning from one genre to another. All 13 members make an appearance across various backdrops and sets, singing along to the rock-infused “DON QUIXOTE,” “March,” the pop sounds of “Domino,” “Shadow,” the mellow vocals of “‘bout you,” “IF you leave me,” before closing to the trap beats of the final track “Ash.” 

SEVENTEEN will showcase live performances of selected tracks during their comeback show at 7 PM KST on May 28. As anticipation peaks, Face the Sun passed the 2 million pre-order sales mark a week ahead of its release, reaching an all-time high for the band. 

The K-pop performance powerhouse also recently signaled their grand return to the concert stage after 2 years and 4 months, announcing ‘SEVENTEEN WORLD TOUR [BE THE SUN].’ SEVENTEEN will kick off the tour on June 25 with two consecutive dates in Seoul, followed by shows in 12 North American cities. More shows are expected to be added to the list, including cities in Asia and a Japan Dome Tour.

ABOUT KAASH PAIGE

Success has come quickly for Def Jam Recordings’ new young star, 21-year-old Kaash Paige. Inspired by an eclectic lineup of artists including Frank Ocean, Mac Miller, Erykah Badu, Isaiah Rashad, and Flatbush Zombies, Kaash released songs on SoundCloud during her sophomore year of high school. In a widely positive reaction, classmates would sing the lyrics back to her in the hallways. (Other early indie postings included “Dnd,” “Orange Sweater,” “Sobriety,” and “Happy Song.”)  The Dallas senior graduated with a new track under her belt, the eternal “Love Songs.”  Within a year, the record had gained viral traction after millions of TikTok users recorded themselves dancing as it played in the background.  The momentum brought Kaash to the attention of Def Jam, the world’s number one hip-hop destination, which issued her debut EP Parked Car Convos and official “Love Songs” video in November 2019.  The track hit #1 on the Spotify viral chart, surpassing over 1.53 billion streams, over 15 million TikTok clips, and over 6.3 million views as the newest Spotlight Artist at YouTube, which named her Trending Artist On The Rise.  The EP spun off two single + video releases, “’64” and“Heartbreaker.”  Kaash followed up in April 2020 with her “Frank Ocean” tribute (“inspired by the feelings you brought to music,” she posted), on the 8th anniversary of his breakthrough “Thinkin’ ’Bout You.”  In between there was “Euphoria,”  a collabo with Don Tolliver and Travis Scott.  Rolling Stone praised Kaash’s “passionate … gorgeous” music, and NPR raved, “the woozy-sounding R&B songs produced by Grand Prairie’s Kaash Paige are reminiscent of artists like SZA and Kehlani.”  A new single + video arrived in June 2020, the sultry “Jaded,” point­ing the way to the August 2020 release of TEENAGE FEVER, her debut full-length studio album.  Kaash – acronym for Kill All Arrogance Stop Hatred – has succeeded in galvanizing her local Lone Star fans with her homegrown sense of self, and is now well on her way to global stardom.  As Ones To Watch summed up, “listening to her music is like falling into a daydream while you watch the clouds in the sky go by.”

Ka$dami – Phoenix

Continuing his meteoric breakthrough, 17-year-old rapper, entrepreneur, visionary and the DMV’s hottest rising star KA$HDAMI revealed a new single entitled “Phoenix.” Listen HERE

On the track, an otherworldly beat rattles underneath his entrancing, engaging and ethereal flow. His hypnotic delivery instantly captivates before his voice takes flight on an airy refrain. The track dissolves into piano before the momentum picks back up with another round verbal wizardry. 

It serves as the follow-up to last month’s “posed2be.” The latter instantly drew critical acclaim. In addition to plugs from Our Generation Music and more, HotNewHipHop wrote, “it’s been a pleasure to watch him evolve and reach new levels with each of his releases.”

Everything just heralds the arrival of his anxiously awaited new project World Damination coming soon.

Within less than a year, KA$HDAMI has skyrocketed to the forefront of the culture as an innovator, and he’s got the receipts to prove it. Beyond posting up 40 million total YouTube views, he has generated over 200 million global streams, notching two songs with 30 million-plus streams—”Look N The Mirror!” and “Reparations.” He has infiltrated top playlists such as Spotify‘s Most Necessary, Internet People, and big on the internet; Apple Music‘s The Plug and Cloud Rap; and Amazon‘s Fresh Hip-Hop and Breakthrough Hip-Hop. His various co-signs range from Internet Money, Lil Tecca and Cole Bennett to UnoTheActivist, Yung Bans and Trippie Redd who invited him to hit the stage during his Chicago Lyrical Lemonade set and even shared the tracklisting of his HYPERNOVA mixtape. Establishing himself as an entrepreneur, he owns and runs his own clothing line, KA$HWAYZ. Acclaim has also followed from Pitchfork (“Must Hear Rap Song of the Day”), Pigeons & Planes (“Best New Artists”), and more. 

Most recently, HYPERNOVA. raked in tens of millions of streams as XXL raved, “His sense of humor is more off the wall, and his beat choice is unique,” and cited him among “the ranks of new rappers making a name for themselves in the game.” HotNewHipHop highlighted “his growth as an artist throughout his career.”

Kur – The Hold Over

Drumming up palpable buzz, rising Philadelphia force of nature Kur revealed a new bundle of songs entitled The Hold Over via Meek Mill‘s DreamChasers and Roc Nation/Republic Records. Listen to The Hold OverHERE.

To celebrate the project’s arrival, he shared the music video for the new single, “For My Fam.” Watch it HERE. The intense production matches his energetic rhymes as he declares, “I done got so many scars, but I’m grateful.” He instantly captivates with bold bars and a hard-hitting hook. The visual seamlessly translates this spirit to the screen and illuminates his star power. 

He bulldozed a path for The Hold Over with “Road to the Riches” last month. It arrived to garner critical acclaim. HotNewHipHop described him as a “talented lyricist,” and Essence highlighted it among “New Music This Week.” The project also boasts previously released “Sheist,” “Let’s Talk,” and “Play It Cool.”

Next up, he’ll deliver a hometown performance at the Roots Picnic on June 4th.As the story goes, Kur first cut his teeth by leaving the competition speechless during lunchtime cyphers at W.B. Saul High School. Projects such as the Straight From The Kur mixtape and Upside Down Cake EP (where he murdered the beat for Drake‘s “Poundcake“) led to the biggest hometown endorsement possible. Meek Mill shared lyrics from “33 Shots” on Twitter as Kur went on to participate in the 2016 BET Hip Hop Awards cypher with Sam Black, Ms. Jade, Dave East and Young M.A. Around the same time, he joined forces with New York phenomenon Dave East for the EP, Born Broke, Die Rich.

2019 saw him approach critical mass. His project Shakur spawned the infectious “Crack” and powerful “Soul” [feat. Mozzy], eclipsing 10 million cumulative global streams. On its heels, “Spare Me” vaulted to #14 on the Apple Music Hip-Hop and Rap Chart and #20 on the All Genres Chart. This prompted Meek Mill to proclaim Kur as “the soul of Philly”. Signed to DreamChasers in partnership with Roc Nation and Republic, the 2021 LP It Shouldn’t Be Like This elevated his total streams past 77 million.

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.

American Songwriter praised “Famous,” noting that, “SK8 effortlessly blends hip-hop and punk into some newly evolved sound,” and Hot New Hip Hop hailed the song as a, “genre-melting experience.”

Shortly after founding his own imprint, Alignment, and formally signing a joint venture with Atlantic Records via James McMillan’s ART@WAR, SK8 released his major label debut EP, sk8sounds, which was buttressed by the standout singles “Omme(Feat. Wiz Khalifa),” “XXX” and “Mood (Feat. YK Osiris).” Over a year later, SK8 has turned a new page in his career with his first single of 2021, “Famous (Feat. Tyla Yaweh),” and its associated forthcoming project which finds the rising singer seamlessly blending punk/rock instrumentation with his hip-hop origins, the latest but not last development in SK8’s rapidly evolving artistry. Last Day on Earth marks the rising singer’s first body of work as an alternative/punk artist.

Lyn Lapid announced debut EP via 360 MAGAZINE

Lyn Lapid – The Outsider

After releasing a slew of viral singles over the past year, breakout songstress Lyn Lapid drops her long-awaited debut EP The Outsider today—listen HERE. The EP, dedicated to all “the outsiders” like Lyn, features 8-songs, including her new single “Pager” alongside fan favorites like “In My Mind,” “I Guess That Was Goodbye,” and the title track “The Outsider.” See the full tracklist below.

On the EP, Lyn says, “I would best describe ‘The Outsider’ as a collection of the different parts of myself that I discovered growing up, and how I learned to accept and set myself apart from the community I grew up in and the people I encountered throughout my life. The focus track of the EP, ‘Pager,’ perfectly encapsulates that sort of idea I had, and it’s the one track on the EP where I specifically talk about the kind of community I grew up in. I grew up in an academically rigorous and competitive community where careers in the fine arts were highly stigmatized and discouraged, so you can imagine the kind of reaction I got when I decided not to go to college and pursue a career as a musician; it was kinda awful, and I got a lot of backhanded comments. I knew that music was my true passion ever since I was little, and eventually I figured I could never win everyone over with the choice I made for myself. I learned to stick with the people who truly got behind me and cut ties with anyone who didn’t.”

She continues, “The other tracks on ‘The Outsider’ all talk about the different ways I felt like an outsider growing up and how I learned to cut ties with the toxic people in my life and find the ones who continue to support me today. I hope that anyone who listens to ‘The Outsider’ knows that there will always be a circle of people who will fully accept who you are, and all you gotta do is go out there and find them.”

This spring, the 19-year-old singer and songwriter will support Ricky Montgomery on his headline tour across North America—see the list of upcoming dates below. This follows Lyn’s previous live shows with Eric Nam and Claire Rosinkranz this past winter.

Surpassing 284 million global streams across her catalogue and amassing 5 million TikTok followers to date, Lyn has affirmed herself as one to watch in 2022 with The Outsider. Stay tuned for more exciting news to come from her this year.

ABOUT LYN LAPID

A classically trained musician, unpredictable vocal dynamo, and fearless genre-breaker, Lyn Lapid asserts herself as an individual through and through. At 19-years-old, the singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and member of vocal collective EARCANDY has unassumingly emerged as an unapologetic and undeniable voice for her generation. In 2018, Lyn posted a ukulele and vocal cover of “Best Part” by Daniel Caesar and H.E.R. on YouTube. She went on to deliver D.I.Y. YouTube renditions of everyone from Ariana Grande and Sabrina Claudio to Edith Piaf and Sarah McLachlan, amassing 60 million-plus views and counting on her channel. In late 2019, Lyn launched her TikTok page, building an audience of 5 million followers and over 1 billion views at a rapid pace. Meanwhile, a snippet of her first original, “Producer Man,” exploded. Produced by Dan Nigro [Olivia Rodrigo, Conan Gray, Carly Rae Jepsen, Lewis Capaldi, Sky Ferreira, Empress Of], the song has gathered over 70 million views and 8 million likes thus far and emerged as “the most-viewed unreleased demo on a TikTok video in 2020.” Following “Producer Man”’s breakout success, Lyn debuted a string of viral releases in 2021, including “Itsy Bitsy,” “Infinite,” and “In My Mind.” Not to mention, she received co-signs from Billie EilishBTS’ Jungkook, and Sabrina Carpenter, amassed over 284 million global streams to date, and has been praised by the likes of Rolling StoneBuzzfeedE!

Sylo "Millions" press images via Pat Ryder for use by 360 Mag

Sylo – Millions

Known for delectable tracks like “Ginny” and “FOMO,” Sylo (formerly Sylo Nozra) is back today with a new name and new single “Millions.” Introducing this chapter in his artistry, the Korean-Canadian alt R&B aficionado takes a step into a more intimate side of his musicality that showcases his sultry vocals over delicate production. Written in a remote cottage last fall, “Millions” is a silky love letter written in the form of manifesting none other than millions of dollars. Listen HERE.

Fusing acoustic instrumentation with intentionally stripped back production, Sylo continues to build out his own breed of modern alt R&B. A breezy listen from front to back, ‘Millions‘ is a tender, windows down type of song that begs for the warmer months to come.

Giving a closer look into the track, Sylo said, “This song isn’t about being rich. It’s about letting my imagination run wild.”

At the end of April through early May, Sylo will be joining MICHELLE for a North American run that will hit Philadelphia, Boston, DC and New York. All tour and ticketing info can be found HERE.

UPCOMING TOUR DATES w/ MICHELLE

April 26 Philadelphia, PA – philaMOC

April 27 Washington, DC – Songbyrd

May 3 Boston, MA The Sinclair

May 5 New York, NY The Bowery Ballroom

ABOUT SYLO

Raised in Toronto, ON, Sylo’s take on R&B is inspired by his environment. He was born into a Korean family with religious roots. This inspired him to sing as a child in church services, leading him to learn several instruments at once. Sylo’s musical talents were further enhanced by his older sister who played 90s R&B and hip-hop to full effect. Once he learned how to apply his inspirations onto his own productions, he became driven to write and perform his own songs for the world. Sylo has now become known for his silky records that were created in his own bedroom studio. The work has received global recognition, charting virally on both Spotify and Apple Music. Additionally, his songwriting skills have placed him in studios amongst GRAMMY-winning/nominated songwriters in Los Angeles, London and Toronto. This year will see Sylo on tour supporting MICHELLE and more new music to come.
