Morgan Wallen Announces Dangerous: The Double Album

As announced last night via his social media, Big Loud/Republic Records’ Morgan Wallen will release his highly-anticipated sophomore album, Dangerous: The Double Album, on January 8, 2021. The vast, 30-track double album is nearly three years in the making, written largely by Wallen throughout the chapter of his career that has established him as “the fastest rising young star in the country” according to Variety. 

With the project’s arsenal of writers ranging from storytelling titans Ashley Gorley, Shane McAnally, Hillary Lindsey, Rhett Akins and Lee Thomas Miller, to two of Wallen’s biggest musical inspirations Eric Church and Jason Isbell, to his closest musical confidants HARDY, ERNEST and Ryan Vojtesak (aka Charlie Handsome), Dangerous: The Double Album further establishes the signature sound crafted by Wallen and producer Joey Moi on his #1 PLATINUM debut, If I Know Me. 

The double shot holds both of Wallen’s current Country radio singles – Top 3 “More Than My Hometown” and Top 30 “7 Summers” – as well as his critically acclaimed cover of Isbell’s “Cover Me Up,” New Year’s surprise release “This Bar,” and the countrified album version of 3X PLATINUM Diplo collaboration, “Heartless.” 

“As y’all may have heard, I announced a double album last night, and I couldn’t be more excited about it,” shares Wallen. “The ‘double album’ idea started off as just a joke between me and my manager because we had accumulated so many songs over the past couple of years. Then quarantine hit, and we realized it might actually be possible to have enough time to make it happen.”

“I also ended up writing quite a few more songs during the quarantine with some of my good buddies. After a few months of production and fine-tuning, I am so proud of what we came up with,” Wallen continued. “I know 32 (eventual) songs sounds like a lot to digest, but I truly did my best to make sure there’s not a song that I would press “next” on.”

“I also wanted the songs to speak to multiple phases of life and have multiple different sounds based on my influences and based on what I enjoy,’ said Wallen. “The three songs that we will put out next week will hopefully encapsulate a lot of the project for you and hold you off until January. Thank y’all!!”

And for Nashville for accepting me into your family. It’s been a great five years since I moved here and thank you guys so much. God bless you!”

“Goodbyes” [feat. Young Thug], and the latest single “Circles”, which has tallied over 77 million Spotify streams and 21 million cumulative YouTube/VEVO views.

Kim Viera releases new single “AY AY AY” feat. Pitbull

Puerto Rican singer and songwriter Kim Viera releases her brand new singleAy Ay Ay feat. Pitbull today.

Listen to “Ay Ay Ay”: HERE

Kim’s sultry vocals ride over the summer-ready production verse by verse leading up to an addictive catchy hook. The Pitbull collaboration adds an extra flair creating a dance-ready hit.

In many ways, Kim Viera was destined to merge cultures in her music. Growing up of Puerto Rican descent in an artist-friendly New York household, her parents both worked in the entertainment industry. Dad launched, owned, and operated a live production company, and Mom could be heard as a backup singer for Willie Colon, Ruben Bladés, and more. Yearly vacations in Puerto Rico represented that balance as the travel mixtape spanned Selena, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, La India, Sia, Brandy, and Whitney Houston. A vocal powerhouse, she made her introduction on viral hits alongside YouTube mega-star Kurt Schneider in between writing for superstars such as Lil Wayne. In 2016, she landed a major label deal with Republic Records and made waves by contributing “Tribe” to the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for Pitch Perfect 3. This anthem quickly clocked 1.8 million Spotify streams. Along the way, she honed her “American Latina” style and set fire with her single “Como” feat. Daddy Yankee. It exploded as an international smash with 40.8 million cumulative streams and counting, while the music video surpassed 24 million views in under a year. Meanwhile, she garnered acclaim from Billboard and NPR who pegged it among “Our Favorite Latin Songs This Week, upon release, setting the stage for her first 2019 anthem “Here For Ya” and now “Ay Ay Ay” feat. Pitbull.

BabyJake releases Debut Single

Singer and songwriter BabyJake releases his debut single “Cigarettes On Patios” today. The Fort Meyers, FL native brings clever song craft on his new track produced by DVLP [Eminem, Lil Wayne] and Shayon Daniels.

Listen to “Cigarettes On Patios”: HERE

BabyJake is the latest music artist to acquire buzz out of Ft. Myers, Florida. After realizing he no longer wanted to pursue college sports, he dropped out to focus on music. In 2016, under his government name, Jake Herring, he self-released an EP titled Little Mess, and followed with a single, “Miami,” which garnered attention online and led him to connect with producers Luyo Mario and DVLP who saw Jake’s true potential for stardom.

He inked a deal with School Boy Records and Republic Records through DVLP’s Transcendent Entertainment imprint after catching the attention of SB Projects with a new name [BabyJake] and a whole new angle to his craft. His debut single “Cigarettes On Patios” is a feel good party cut about living carefree and partying with friends. It’s destined to be the party anthem of the summer, though once the sun sets, BabyJake is geared to mix genres and feelings in a way that’s never been done before. Harnessing his knack for strong songwriting mixed with his love of hip-hop, his music is set to hit hard and you won’t want to miss out.

JEREMY ZUCKER SHARES VIDEO FOR “TALK IS OVERRATED” FEAT BLACKBEAR (Watch HERE – Post & Share)

 

“Zucker is one on the cusp of great things in the pop world, and his uncanny ability to create vibrant atmospheres and complement ’em with easygoing vocals is under the radar, for sure.” HillyDilly

 

Jeremy Zucker has just released the video for his recent single, “Talk Is Overrated” Feat blackbear. According to Jeremy, “the song is about not worrying about things you can’t control. I shot, directed, and edited the music video with that in mind – it’s basically a supercut of my life.” Following the success of his independently released EP’s Beach Island and Breathe in 2015, and his more recent EP Motions in 2016, the multi-talented producer, singer, and songwriter, Jeremy Zucker will be releasing more music later this month.

Jeremy Zucker Bio

Before entrancing listeners across the world, 21-year-old singer, songwriter, and producer Jeremy Zucker had been quietly carving out his distinct sound from a bedroom in suburban New Jersey. A fusion of organic airy beats, lush soundtrack-style soundscapes, and biting tumblr-worthy lyricism, Zucker’s catalog is eclectic: equally care-free and effortless as it is introspectively cathartic. A self-described “social introvert,” Zucker cites Jon Bellion, Blackbear, EDEN, Bon Iver, and Wet among his strongest influences.

In the summer of 2015, Zucker released his first official EP entitled “Beach Island.” The project saw a small amount of success and from there Zucker steadily began to build a dedicated fan base. Later that year he released a stream of singles that would eventually be packaged together as an EP titled “Breathe.” The project’s breakout single “Bout It” quickly garnered millions of streams as it organically spread across Soundcloud and Spotify, drawing the attention of curators and fans across the world. In 2016 Zucker released his third EP, “Motions,” which featured “Heavy,” a song that was later remixed by the recording artist Blackbear who reached out to Jeremy after stumbling across his music on
Soundcloud. The remix, “Make Daddy Proud,” was released on Blackbear’s latest LP “Digital Druglord.” 2017 continues the upward trend for Zucker; he recently signed with Republic Records and is currently gearing up for his major label debut.
