RISING R&B STAR MK xyz’s NEW EP SWEET SPOT OUT NOW

WATCH THE MUSIC VIDEO FOR “ONE TIME” HERE

After being discovered by Tricky Stewart , amassing nearly 10 million total streams, and garnering praise from BustleWonderland MagazineFLAUNT, and more, Florida-born triple-threat, R&B singer, songwriter and dancer MK xyz uncovers her highly-anticipated debut EP entitled Sweet Spot today. It showcases all her talents and makes an unapologetic statement from MK xyz as an artist who is here to stay.

Listen HERE via Epic Records.

She celebrates the arrival of the six-track project with the music video for the new single “One Time” directed by Madeline Kate Kann. The Hitmaka produced track has an accompanying visual full of throwback vibes between its scenes of skateboarding in the rain, showstopping dance routines, and fly nineties fashion. Meanwhile, she flexes her impressive range over skittering 808s just as the hypnotic hook takes hold and the energy heats up.

About her Sweet Spot EP, MK xyz said, “The XYZ is the Sweet Spot. No labels, no expectations, where we say FUCK the rules. A sexy, yet sweet balance of any and everything.”

EP opener “Dennis Rodman” formally introduces the 22-year-old as she delivers sharp verses and dunks on the clever hook about dating and rebounds. She leans into bass on “Air It Out” with flirty fire, while “GEAUX” seesaws between a thick bounce and a propulsive chorus. Check out the full tracklisting below.

Making headlines and expanding her influence, MK xyz also starred in the new Beyoncé x Adidas#ImpossibleIsNothing campaign spot.

Now signed by RZ3 Recordings, the singer and dancer is poised for a breakout year in 2021.

About MK xyz

MK xyz has her eyes set on redefining R&B, and she’s doing it all on her own terms. The 22-year-old has already established herself as a triple-threat (she flips between rapping, singing, and dancing with ease) ever since the release of her 2020 singles “Lost” and “Pass It” featuring G-Eazy. Since then, she’s received praise from critics like BustleRated R&B, Flaunt and Wonderland.

The artist creates an addictive fusion of R&B, hip-hop and pop, which is best showcased in her debut EP, Sweet Spot. Anchored by the breezy lead single “One Time,” the EP reflects her feminine and masculine sides. There’s also production from OG Parker (Migos, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Chris Brown) and frequent collaborator Hitmaka (Drake, Chris Brown, Ty Dolla $ign). With the release of Sweet Spot and her future music, MK xyz hopes that her self-expression and push for queer inclusivity inspire others to realize their inner superpower.

Daniel Caesar Releases Best Part Video

Two-time GRAMMY Award-nominated platinum-certified R&B star Daniel Caesar shares the music video for his latest single Best Part [feat. H.E.R.] today.

Watch it HERE.

A gorgeous beachside affair, the captivating split-screen clip depicts each respective vocalist walking along the water. The sun glistens off the sand as the voices entwine despite the distance. Dreamy acoustic guitar resounds as Caesar’s voice carries off into the horizon and H.E.R. simply hypnotizes as she maintains her signature mystery throughout the clip. It’s a cinematic exposition worthy of the song’s luscious and lovelorn emotionality.

Best Part stands out as the latest favorite from the artist’s GRAMMY nominated full-length epic, Freudian. Another phenomenon, it’s already racked up over 66 million Spotify streams and counting.

Last night, the duo joined forces for the first late night performance of the track on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!

Watch it HERE.

After recently completing his sold out Freudian World Tour, Caesar descends on Coachella this weekend and next.

Caesar quietly built a platform to reach the top of R&B and soul in 2018. He’s performed everywhere from The Late Late Show with James Corden to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert alongside Chance the Rapper, no less, and Late Night with Seth Meyers. Notably, he even attracted the highest endorsement possible, with Get You appearing on President Barack Obama’s Year-End Best Songs list alongside another Caesar favorite First World Problems.
