Becky G × Burna Boy – Rotate

Global superstars Becky G and Burna Boy have joined forces on their latest track “Rotate” which is out now via Kemosabe/RCA Records. Listen HERE. Becky G says, “Rotate” to me is a celebration. I think it’s evident that futbol holds a special place in my heart and having Burna Boy join me on this made sense because ultimately I wanted to embody the perfect pre-game song that gets the blood flowing, makes you want to dance and enjoy the sport.”

Burna Boy says, “This is a song that inspires you to aspire and I’m truly honored to be a part of the champions league journey. Writing it came from a place of positivity. The belief that no matter who or where you are, whatever your background or your origins are, there is no limit to what you can achieve when you put your mind to it! I believe we are ALL champions!”

“Rotate,” which was co-written by both artists along with SoFLY, Nius, DiGenius, Elena Rose, Nate Campany and Jin Jin and produced by SoFLY, Nius and DiGenius, is currently featured in the 2021 Pepsi global football campaign “Music Keeps Us Fizzing’  which launched earlier this week. The lyrics and beat of the track, Rotate’, are inspired by this year’s roster of Pepsi football talent and are a tribute to the beautiful game.

SAYGRACE today releases a new single entitled “Used To” via RCA Records. CLICK HERE to listen now.

SAYGRACE says about her inspiration for the new track: “I was dealing with fuckboys and commitment phobes and as a result developed this kind of tough exterior really tryna protect my heart. Out of nowhere, I found myself falling in love for the first time ever, all mushy in a serious relationship.  I was like ‘wtf this is so weird, how did this happen how is this real’ and ‘Used To’ is just an expression of all that inner turmoil.”

SAYGRACE has enjoyed over 167 million streams of her hit single “Boys Ain’t Shit” including her original version as well as her collaborations withpowerful female artists including Flo Milli, Tate McRae, Audrey Mika and Becky G on new versions of the hit single. Check those out HERE.

The Brisbane, Australia born singer/songwriter SAYGRACE made the conscious decision to put the version of herself she wants to be into the world. She created songs that tells girls they don’t have to have it all figured out or succumb to pressure to be something they’re not. That it’s okay to just be yourself. And that it’s okay if you don’t know who that is yet. SAYGRACE’s “Boys Ain’t Shit” is an anthem for all women who feel like swiping, doing emotional labor, and the interchangeable nature of modern dating is dehumanizing. Her debut EP, The Defining Moments of SAYGRACE: Girlhood, Fuckboys & Situationships, is her manifesto.

Becky G – My Man

Today, global superstar Becky G releases new single “My Man” along with the music video via Kemosabe Records/RCA Records. The track, which was produced by Di Genius, was written by Becky alongside Di Genius, Elena Rose, Edgar Barrera, Fresh, Maurice “Verse” Simmonds, Janée “Jin Jin” Bennett and Jenni Rivera. 

Inspired by Jenni Rivera’s “La Gran Senora”, the song is a fun and flirty expression of female empowerment as it takes on the narrative of staying with your man through ups and downs, thick and thin. The video, which was shot at home and inspired by spending time nonstop with your partner during quarantine, features Becky alongside her boyfriend, LA Galaxy player Sebastian Lletget. It was directed by Pedro Paulo Araujo of 2 Wolves/SOTA. 

Becky G says, “I always loved the perspective Jenni Rivera sang from on “La Gran Señora” and thought that it was so different. It’s a unique perspective that is never really shared in songs, so I thought it would be dope to bring an up-beat 2020 Becky G flow to a concept story like that with my Spanglish style.”

“The music video is a true moment that has now been captured forever. This pandemic will be something Sebastian & I will never forget. Sharing a “fly on the wall” point of view to the silly and competitive side of us from behind closed doors and that people usually don’t get a chance to see, was so much fun. We really didn’t feel like we were shooting a video, we were just being us.”

Singer, songwriter and actress Becky G was born for the spotlight and her multifaceted career is shaping up to be nothing short of iconic. The 23-year-old global superstar’s achievements include two number one hits on the Billboard Latin Airplay Charts (“Mayores” & “Sin Pijama”), a starring role in “Power Rangers,” and guest-starring in Fox TV’s Emmy-winning “Empire” series. She won two 2018 Latin American Music Awards, for Favorite Female Artist and Favorite Urban Song (for “Mayores”) and was awarded YouTube’s Diamond Play Button for surpassing 10 million followers on the platform. Becky G has toured alongside Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, J Balvin, Fifth Harmony and Jason Derulo and has recorded collabs with Pitbull, Daddy Yankee, Maluma, Anitta, Natti Natasha, ZAYN, Bad Bunny and CNCO, among others. 

Becky has been honored by the Latin Recording Academy as one of the Leading Ladies in Entertainment (2018) and by her home city of Inglewood, California for her contributions to the Hispanic community; she has been recognized as one of Rolling Stone’s “18 Teens Shaking Up Pop Culture” and one of Billboard’s “21 Under 21”.

Becky G – SAYGRACE

SAYGRACE today offers a brand new remix of her Tiktok-topping hit entitled “Boys Ain’t Shit (Estos Chicos No Lo Son Remix)” Featuring Becky G.
Listen Here.
 
The video for ‘Boys Ain’t Shit’ has already enjoyed over 5 million views, and the single has been trending on TikTok with over 200k video creations.

This remix is the latest offering from SAYGRACE who released her critically-lauded debut EP last month entitled The Defining Moments of SayGrace: Girlhood, Fuckboys & Situationships. 

SAYGRACE says: “I am honored to have Becky G join me on this new version of my song. She’s such an accomplished performer and songwriter, who like me, also started out as a teenager in this business, and I am blown away to hear she’s a fan.*”

Adds Becky G about lending her voice to “Boys Ain’t Shit”: “I loved the original song so much and wanted to jump on it! I feel people around the world, no matter what language they speak, have related to the sentiment of the song at some point in life.”
 
“Boys Ain’t Shit” finds SAYGRACE flipping the script on a man who pushed her to the breaking point — but instead of vectoring in on the problems in their situationship, SAYGRACE turned the track into an anthem for all women who feel like swiping, doing emotional labor, and the interchangeable nature of modern dating is dehumanizing. 
 
SAYGRACE released a trilogy of videos for featured tracks on her EP – “Boys Ain’t Shit, “Doin’ Too Much,” and “Gone” , all representing the viewpoint of SAYGRACE’s younger self.
 
Offers SAYGRACE about her EP: “The things that I’ve gone through have made me a little rough around the edges and hard for some people to take, but it’s who I am. I’d rather be this way than be a version of myself that makes you feel more comfortable,” she says.
 
SAYGRACE thinks of her lyrics as a message to the younger version of herself, and a message to any woman who needs to hear it; that in a world that’s always trying to shrink you, you can be as big as you want. “As woman we’re told all your value is placed on how fuckable you are, but I refuse to accept that as reality,” she says. “What I realized as I got older is that nothing is more powerful than divine feminine energy and when woman come together and support each other the possibilities are infinite.” SAYGRACE is all about finding her place and her power as a young woman despite sometimes still feeling like a lost kid in this big world. 
 
Her EP, The Defining Moments of SayGrace: Girlhood, Fuckboys & Situationships, is her manifesto.
