Andy Mineo × Lecrae

In the midst of his “The Return To Never Land” Tour Andy Mineo got the call he’d been waiting for. The world will finally get to see his new music video for “Been About It,” ft Lecrae! With his Never Land II album critically acclaimed with over 7 million streams in 1 week, Andy Mineo, is poised for crossover success.

After 80 million streams from their viral hit, “Coming In Hot,” fans were looking forward to a follow-up project with Andy Mineo and Lecrae. With the momentum built, Mineo hit producer, Sak Pase, producer of “Coming In Hot,” for another banger.

The “Been About It” video features recreation of the album artwork of the most famous hip-hop albums ever released.

“Been About It is a homage to the music that raised me. An homage to the culture and the creators who paved a way for hip hop to be a global phenomenon that I get to be a part of,” shares Andy. “We’ve lost so many iconic hip-hop artists in the past few years and sadly, we wait until people die to give them their props! Lecrae and I recorded this song and a dope video to pay tribute to the artists who have impacted hip-hop and inspired us!”

His partner-in-rhyme, Lecrae adds, “Andy and I are products of Hip Hop. These are some of the albums that shaped our childhood. I especially loved remaking the Tupac album cover. He was iconic.”

The first time the public saw the “Been About It” video was at the Atlanta private VIP listening session. The day before the album release, Lecrae and Andy traversed the Atlanta Beltline, playing the Never Land II album for random people while capturing reactions to the original “Been About It” video. At a VIP meet-and-greet during “The Return To Never Land II” tour, Andy privately showed snippets from the video.

The reactions from everyday people on the belt-line and the texts he received from influencers and media friends were so energizing.

Today Andy Mineo & Lecrae are proud to share their love letter to hip-hop, the artists and the creatives who are keeping the culture alive! You can find some of these memorable album covers recreated in the “Been About It” video:

Nicky Jam – Melancol

Today, singer, songwriter, rapper, and actor Nicky Jam released the music video of the highly-anticipated ballad “Melancol” stemming from his new album Infinity.

“Melancol” is a ballad that surprised all of Nicky Jam’s fans, because it’s the first time we’ve ever heard the artist display his vocal range to that extent, captivating listeners in a melodic trip through the memories of a relationship that will no longer be. It has become one of the most praised songs from the new album thanks to its beautiful melody and impressive vocalizations.

“Everything that has a beginning has an end // All that becomes all, one day becomes nothing // Everything changes here, what did you expect // What goes up has to come down,” Nicky sings in Spanish in the chorus, in this very real scenario that resonates with so many.

The music video, directed by Gus, shows Nicky in a desert alone during a sunset, symbolizing all the beauty of a past relationship that now comes to an end, and then the period of “darkness” before a new love comes along and the sun rises again.

“Melancol” is part of Nicky Jam’s new album, Infinity, his most versatile yet, which takes the listener on a trip through all the genres he has mastered throughout his career, from old school reggaeton to raw and real rap verses, to the romantic and melodic slow-tempo songs that really showcase his singing voice.

360 Magazine is pleased to see artists from other countries thriving internationally. Nicky Jam is also preparing for his upcoming INFINITY TOUR 2022. This will be Nicky Jamߣs first official tour post-pandemic that will hit major cities across the United States and Canada. The tour will kick off in Boston on February 3, 2022, and end in Seattle on March 27, 2022, with stops in New York, Atlanta, Chicago, Toronto, Montreal, Orlando, Miami, Houston, Hidalgo, Ontario, Los Angeles, and San Jose.

Mon Laferte – Amigos Simplemente

Mon Laferte premiered the video for “Amigos Simplemente” today, exclusively through Facebook. It’s a universally relatable love song as Mon sings of that moment when friendship begins to transform, and that simple affection you once felt becomes stronger.

“I want something with you, more than being friends… Let me love you or at least try. It is no coincidence to love you; it is not an accident,” the Chilean artist sings.

The latest single from Mon’s recent album Seis, “Amigos Simplemente” focuses on a young couple who slowly displays to us that there is something more to their relationship than being just simply friends. The premiere of the new video takes place ahead of Latino and Hispanic Heritage Month (LHHM), which is celebrated from September 15 to October 15. Throughout the month, Facebook will highlight stories from diverse artists and personalities from Latino and Hispanic communities that shape the culture of the United States. This year, Mon Laferte is one of the singers honored for her diverse contributions and achievements in America.

SEIS is an intensely personal album inspired by a documentary about Mexican-via Costa Rica singer Chavela Vargas, who is best known for revolutionizing Mexican ranchera music. The songs were born during the global pandemic and heavy isolation, and include carefully crafted lyrics, brought forth from self-reflection, allowing Mon to explore her deepest feelings, leaving nothing but vulnerability at this rare time.

Billboard calls SEIS, “Vulnerable and commanding” and VICE says, “It gives you chills, requiring no knowledge of Spanish to communicate its emotion… a gut-stomping triumph.” BBC Music says, “SEISis her most intimate and courageous yet; tackling complex topics such as misogyny, repression, and injustice, inspired by her lived experiences.”

Tickets are on sale now and a full list of tour dates can be found below.

GIVĒON recently announced his “Timeless Tour”! The 14-city tour went on sale September 17th and sold out in a matter of minutes. The tour will kick off on November 28th in Detroit, MI. Additional dates below:

About GIVĒON

GIVĒON has made himself one of music’s brightest stars by bringing vivid color, depth, and soul to songs that capture the intensity of life’s twists and turns. After coming to fame via Drake’s “Chicago Freestyle,” the CA native became a force in his own right. GIVĒON had a whirlwind 2020 after releasing his Platinum-certified “Like I Want You” (230 million cross-platform streams in the US). He kept the momentum with “Heartbreak Anniversary,” a gauzy ballad that peaked at #16 on the Billboard Hot 100, garnered over 684 million streams, and earned 2X Platinum status. In March 2020, GIVĒON’s debut EP, Take Time, confirmed his evocative songwriting prowess and would be nominated for Best R&B Album at the 2021 Grammys. His fall When It’s All Said and Done EP further explored the peaks and valleys of love and, when re-packaged with its predecessor in 2021, hit #5 on the Billboard 200. After being nominated for a 2020 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding New Artist, he won BET’s 2021 Best New Artist, and his audience is growing—to the tune of over 1.7 billion streams globally. He even hit #1 on the Hot 100 in March on Justin Bieber’s “Peaches.” That hit helped him win award for Best Pop Song at the 2021 MTV VMA‘s where he was nominated for seven awards including Best New Artist, Best R&B and Best Pop Song. Drake then invited GIVĒON back into his world, this time for a sizzling verse on Certified Lover Boy’s “In the Bible” with Lil Durk—one of a guaranteed run of thrilling collabs to come. And at his festival debut, Lollapalooza 2021, he found a sea of voices who knew his lyrics. But success has never really been a goal— GIVĒON just wants to bear his soul.

ARIA BROOKS Q×A

Aria Brooks (ARIA) is an actress from Atlanta, Georgia who joined the cast of All That in the second half of its first season. Growing up around a family of performing arts teachers and musicians, ARIA has turned to a path in the entertainment industry. We got to speak with ARIA about her debut EP castles and she touches on topics such as mental health and real-life issues affecting youths today.

  1. What has the reaction to castles been like?
    The reaction has been great! People have been streaming it and I am beyond grateful. My fans seem to have the same favorites as I do, which has been cool to see.
  2. What was your songwriting process for your debut EP?
    My songwriting process in general has been based on my mood. I only wrote when I was inspired to write because that’s how my best songs come out. For castles, I started writing in 2020 until the beginning of 2021 on and off because I needed to be in the correct mindset to write.
  3. How long did the production of castles take?
    I started recording in January of 2021. We built a home studio and got to work. The official production lasted from January to March for castles pt.1. We’re still finalizing pt. 2 to be released later this year.
  4. Is there a certain track off castles that you’ve noticed is a fan favorite? If so, why do you think that is?
    The fan favorite has been Dear Brown Girl since I first released it. I did a focus group prior to the release and it seemed to be a favorite then as well. I think that is because of the overall vibe…it’s empowering and very musical.
  5. Do you prefer making music or acting on the big screen?
    I cannot pick which one I like better. Music is my foundation, but I’ve grown to love acting just as much. I think there are pros and cons to both though.
  6. Fans love your single “Fire x Water.” Can you describe the sound of the single in three words for those who haven’t heard it?
    It is mysterious, subliminal, and climatic. I was so excited to share it with the world.
  7. For your 14th birthday, you created the “14 til 14 Challenge” to support tolerance and acceptance. Can you speak a bit more about your vision behind this challenge?
    I didn’t really know what I wanted for my birthday, so I figured I could do some kind of Instagram challenge. I wanted the challenge to have some kind of meaning behind it, so my mom helped me come up with the idea of having a different challenge every day for 14 days. There were challenges that focused on social issues and I am glad I got to educate my followers and bring light to the things that were important to me.
  8. Your followers really seem to love your Instagram Live show, Ask Aria. What did you enjoy most about making the show?
    I enjoyed getting to learn about the industry from people like Tabitha Brown, Kenan Thompson and Chantae Cann. I got a chance to ask for advice that helped me as an artist, and I am sure it helped a lot of my followers as well.
  9. You’re such a young artist who has already done so many amazing things. What is your main focus or goal in the entertainment industry?
    My goal is to inspire people. Sharing my art with the world is like sharing a piece of myself. So, I hope to be relatable and inspiring to people. I also want people to know that prioritizing yourself is not a bad thing. Your mental health is just as important as your physical health.
  10. Can fans look forward to any other upcoming projects/releases from you in 2021?
    I have another single being released this year. I can’t reveal too much, so you’ll just have to wait and see. I am also releasing castles pt. 2 later this year, along with more visuals.

Keep up with Aria on Instagram.

ABOUT YUMI ZOUMA:

Originally created as a long-distance project between friends online, Yumi Zouma is a collaboration drawn from around the world, with members based in New York City, London, and their home of New Zealand.

The self-produced quartet have honed their craft of delicate pop tapestries by way of emailed home recordings, resulting in records such as 2020’s acclaimed Truth or Consequences, lauded by FADER as “shimmering nostalgia-pop.”

However, on the fearless new single “Give It Hell,” singer Christie Simpson issues a call of resistance amongst the chaos of our modern age. The song, which was recorded over remote sessions undertaken throughout 2020, showcases an expanded sonic palette of live drums, grand pianos, orchestral strings, and woodwinds revealing a cacophonous glimpse of the band’s fourth and most formidable album yet, out early 2022.

half•alive – Make of It

Long Beach based trio half•alive released their new single “Make of It” along with the music video via RCA Records. Watch HERE. “Make of It” is written by half•alive and OJIVOLTA (Kanye West, Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, Halsey, Jon Bellion) and produced by OJIVOLTA. The video is directed by Emma Portner.

Josh Taylor from half•alive says, “as always, there’s so many stories that went into the making of this song. writing, production, etc. but there was one moment of clarity in the writing process one night that felt like the crux to unlock this very personal story of mine which became Make of It. That moment happened when our producer Mark (of OJIVOLTA) stared at me during one of our writing sessions & abruptly asked “do you ever get mad? if so, would a half•alive fan who doesn’t speak English be able to tell if you were just from your tone?” After thinking about the question for a while, I came to realize that there was an anger-sized hole missing in our songs. There were stories that I was restricting myself from writing because I wanted them to be perfectly processed, with happy endings to tie everything together. but sometimes the unprocessed, unhindered emotion is what the song needs. when that was realized, i turned on my mental faucet of unfiltered anger, 45 minutes later, the song was done.”

“Make of It” follows previously released tracks “Summerland,” “Time 2,” and “What’s Wrong” which came out earlier this year. “What’s Wrong,” which was “Most Added” at Alt Radio around its launch, had garnered over 12.2 million streams worldwide. half•alive also performed it on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! last month. Check it out HERE.

Additionally, the band is wrapping up a run of headlining west coast shows with a stop at The Wiltern in Los Angeles tonight and Life is Beautiful Music & Art Festival this Sunday. Next week, half•alive will be hitting the road with Twenty One Pilots on their almost sold out “Takeøver Tour” which starts in Denver, CO on September 22nd. Find the tour schedule HERE.

About half•alive

The music of half•alive breathes, evolves, grows, and changes alongside the lives of the Long Beach trio—Josh Taylor [vocals], Brett Kramer [drums], and J Tyler Johnson [bass]. half•alive officially came to life on the 2017 3 EP, which sparked a palpable buzz on the strength of “The Fall” and “Awake At Night”. Over the course of the next year, they crafted what became their massive breakout “still feel.” which has been RIAA certified Gold, rocketed into the Top 10 at Alt Radio and has over 276 million worldwide streams to date. The video organically surpassed the 10 million mark within two months as the song garnered acclaim from NPR’s coveted “All Songs Considered” and more. The trio sold out their formal debut headlining tour in 2019  which included 2 sold out shows at The Fonda Theatre in LA. The tour also included stops at major music festivals including Lollapalooza, Outside Lands and Bumbershoot. Later that year the band made their late night television debut with a very special performance of “still feel.” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. Check out the incredible and unique performance HERE. They also performed “Runaway” on The Late Late Show with James Corden. In August 2019, they released their debut album Now, Not Yet which has amassed over 472 million worldwide audio streams to date. half•alive was named YouTube’s Artist on the Rise and their live Vevo DSCVR performances of “RUNAWAY” and “arrow” showcase their incredible creative artistry. Last year, half•alive released their EP “in Florescence,” an audio and visual project that included orchestral arrangements of 4 tracks off their critically acclaimed debut album Now, Not Yet as well as videos for 3 of the 4 songs to accompany them.

She’s an incredible artist whose unique style and vocal abilities have no bounds. There’s no doubt she’ll accomplish great things and we can’t wait to see Tems flourish.”

Apple Music 1 host Nadeska Alexis speaks on their Apple Music Up Next artist Tems’ career and artistry.

Apple Music 1 Host, Nadeska: “Tems once told me that ‘being yourself actually takes more courage than people would imagine.’ In her career that has meant ignoring opinions and pressure to compromise her music, while constantly defying expectations. Her debut EP was raw and addictive, leaving fans hungry for her next release. And no matter how her songwriting evolves, her unique and captivating vocal tone will bring her the spotlight on any original or feature record she touches.”

Tems has been having a standout year since releasing her last EP For Broken Ears. She’s a singer/songwriter/self-taught producer that writes, arranges and produces her music with a genre-blending sound that fuses R&B with soul, reggae and more in her own unique way. Recently, Tems was featured on the standout track “Fountains” on Drake’s latest album Certified Lover Boy and is featured on “the song of the summer” “Essence” with Afrobeats star Wizkid, which recently released a version featuring Justin Bieber. The original version just hit #1 at Urban Radio and #1 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart this week. She’s also worked with various artists such as Khalid, Disclosure, Davido and more. Beyond music, Tems is a gifted clothing designer who has created some of the outfits she will be wearing on her forthcoming U.S. tour.
