SUMMER WALKER – SUMMER SERIES

R&B streaming supernova Summer Walker is back to release her Amazon Music Live EP Summer Series. The five-track offering includes live performances of fan-favorite Summer records, including “Over It,” “Playing Games,” “Session 32,” “Throw It Away,” and “Unloyal.” Stream “Summer Series (Amazon Music Live),” here

Summer has enjoyed a string of stellar performances over the last few months, beginning with her sold-out concert, A Hot Summer Night, last June. She continued her fiery onslaught at London’s Wireless Festival last month, where her rousing effort amazed the crowd and left her awestruck by their courteous reception. 

This week, she’ll take her talents to New York’s Hulu Theatre this Friday at the prestigious Madison Square Garden before heading out to Detroit’s Fox Theatre on August 17th. In recent months, Walker also landed prominent feature appearances alongside fellow music heavyweights Kendrick Lamar (“Purple Hearts”) and The Weeknd (“Best Friend (Remix).”

After being nominated for the Billboard Music Awards and BET Awards, Summer earned another nomination at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. Nominated for Best R&B Video, Summer’s R&B scorcher “No Love (Extended Version)” featuring Cardi B and SZA sits at 19 million on YouTube and remains a contender for song of the year in the R&B space. 

In its original form with Summer Walker and SZA,No Love” instantly lit up charts upon its debut last November. The song surged to No. 1 on Apple Music’s U.S. Top 100 chart and, though it wasn’t an official single at the time, also debuted at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 to become Summer Walker‘s highest-charting hit. The collab appears on Summer’s Still Over It, which broke the record for the album for the most one-week streams ever by a female R&B artist and was the first R&B album by a female act to top the Billboard 200 since 2016. Those achievements led Summer to be honored with the Chartbreaker Award at Billboard’s annual Women in Music.

Doechii New Single "she / her / black bitch" Cover Art via U Music Group for use by 360 MAGAZINE

DOECHII – SHE

Today Doechii drops her first EP for Top Dawg Entertainment / Capitol Records she / her / black bitch. Listen HERE.

The EP includes production from Kal Banx, Hit-Boy, Bankroll Got It and Devin Malik, and is Executive Produced by Anthony ‘Top Dawg‘ Tiffith and Anthony Moosa Tiffith Jr.

The project cements the Tampa native as a distinct voice whose versatile talents range from quick-fire bars to seductive singing. On she / her / black bitch Doechii outlines different layers of her life experience: from villainous to confident to soft and sad, and to overall proving that she matters. As NPR stated Doechii reclaims and spits back at anyone who dares to diminish her power.

Many times I’ve been referred to as a bitch as a way to gaslight me out of certain spaces, something I think many people can relate to in one way or another,” says Doechii. “Lots of people will call you various names for doing something differently.

So I decided to take ownership of the black bitch and title my EP she/ her/ black bitch and reclaim that motherf***ing power, Doechii continues. So if you’ve ever been put down for being yourself, just remember you’re powerful and unapologetic- these songs are for you.”

In 2022 the Doechii came out swinging, chosen as an XXL Freshman and tapped as an Artist to Watch in Rolling Stone, NPR, Vulture, Complex, Uproxx, Pigeons and Planes, FADER, and more. Doechii performed on both The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and on the mainstage on the BET Awards. She was also chosen as the RADAR US Cover Artist at Spotify; the VEVO DSCVR Artist for June; the BET Artist of the Month; MTV‘s Push Artist for July; and Billboard crowned her both Artist of the Month and a Queer Game-Changer. Doechii‘s record Persuasive also made Obama‘s Summer playlist.

Doechii has dominated since the release of her unwaveringly original EPs 2020s, Oh the Places You‘ll Go, featuring the viral smash Yucky Blucky Fruitcake, and 2021’s BRA-LESS. This new release continues a hot streak for Doechii following the brazen Bitch I’m Nice the rebellious Crazy and the seductive Persuasive (which SZA later jumped on).

Expect more unparalleled, genre-bending music from the multi-faceted Doechii, the self-proclaimed swamp princess.

Lady London – Lady Like: The Boss Tape

Trinidadian/ Jamaican American artist Lady London released her “Lady Like: The Boss Tape;” a series of her most acclaimed freestyles since she surfaced in the rap scene in 2018.

The New Jersey/ New York artist possesses a wide range of talents, from being a rapper, songwriter, poet, published author and educated woman, there’s not much that she cannot do. Her music reflects her drive, and “Lady Like: The Boss Tape” highlights all the best parts of her music.

This compilation of freestyles showcases London’s talent of freestyling, which gained her praise on social media. In her tracks, London remixes some iconic Hip Hop tracks and gives them her own flare. Featured tracks include “Lisa Story” ft. Dub Aura that samples “Get Me Home” by Foxy Brown and “Long Live Shamello” that remixes Busta Rhymes’ “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See.” Check out the full tracklist below.

The popularity of London’s freestyles has gained widespread attention, earning herself co-signs from Cardi B, Nas, Timbaland and so many more. Sitting at 618k followers on Instagram, London has established a loyal fanbase that has supported her music through the years. Lady London continues to elevate the rap scene, and last year she released two standout singles; “Money Over” and “Never,” which is her most personal record to date.

Lady London is one artist that you will want to keep on your radar as we dive into 2022.

About Lady London

New Jersey-born and Los-Angeles based rapper Lady London is known for her rhythmic lyricism. While her mother was Jamaican and Father Trinidadian, her childhood was divided between East Orange, New Jersey and the Bronx, New York. Hip hop culture has been an integral part of her life, as her uncle was Chino XL, and she grew up inspired by artists like JAY-Z, Lil Kim and Whitney Houston. In college, London was on a pre-med path, but still expressed her love for the arts while putting on successful poetry shows. In 2018, she posted one of her poetry videos online, and the video went viral with 8-million plus views. After London obtained her Master of Science from Keck School of Medicine at USC, she also was accepted into the school’s medical program.

Ultimately, London put her dream of medical school in the past to chase her dream of music. She talks about the decision, stating, “everything changed, I figured I could always go back to school. Convincing my West Indian family was very interesting. They didn’t understand why I was willing to give up everything I had been working towards. I knew I had to do music, though. You can’t run from destiny.”

Moreover, London’s career has taken off since 2018. This artist has generated millions of views online with her own original music. Her single released in 2021, “Money Over,” accumulated 500,000-plus views on YouTube as the one and only Cardi B described London as “the most slept on” to social media. London serves as a SAVAGE ambassador for Rihanna’s FENTY. Giving a performance in support of Black Lives Matter at the BET Awards, London caught the attention of many, eventually becoming co-signed by Diddy and Revolt TV.

“There are multiple levels to me,” Lady London clarifies. “I’m not one-dimensional. I really take my craft seriously. I consider rap to be an artform—not a trend. I’ve studied cadences, timing, breath control, double and triple entendres, and syllables. It almost breaks down to an exact science. I pay attention to verbiage, semantics, and diction. I’m a connoisseur of rhythmical composition in its purest form. I’m just a boss.”

Lady London continues to prove herself in the rap world as a force to be reckoned with.

Lil Nas X × Vevo

Grammy Award-winning artist Lil Nas X and director Christian Bresauer have partnered exclusively with Vevo for the latest installment of Vevo Footnotes, revealing every hidden reference and new information about the making of their iconic Industry Baby music video.

WATCH THE MAKING OF INDUSTRY BABY | VEVO FOOTNOTES

In the visual for the now Platinum-certified hit song, Lil Nas X discusses the inspiration and controversy surrounding the making of the video. He also talks about personal items he used on the set, improvised choreography and the most uncomfortable scenes to film with co-star Jack Harlow. The song appears on Lil Nas X’s chart-topping album MONTERO out now.

Below is a complete outline of The Making of Industry Baby | Vevo Footnotes, including key insight from the music video’s executive director and more from Lil Nas X himself.

FOOTNOTES OUTLINE:

0:10 Narration: The Grammy’s in Nas’s jail cell are his actual Grammys.

0:18 Narration: The poster in his cell is an image from the BET Awards show he performed at three days prior to shooting the music video.

0:35 – 0:41 Lil Nas X: I wanted to go to a place people would least expect me to go in a music video. An overly masculine place and make it gay asf. I also wanted to visualize the theme of breaking free from the shackles society places on you.

0:54 – 0:59 Christian Breslauer: This Visual is essentially a giant metaphor to represent Nas’s unwillingness to conform to the industry standards or be caged in because of his beliefs. No matter the scenario he will be who he is and no prison is strong enough to contain him.

1:08 Narration: Nas improvised this choreography on the spot.

1:27 Lil Nas X: I think Shawshank Redemption is a great movie, but it was in no way the main inspiration of the video. Although, it is responsible for the hole in the wall scene.

1:54 Narration: The security guard getting punched by Nas is Colton Haynes, the star of Teen Wolf.

2:22 -2:42 Lil Nas X: The hardest part of making this music video? Honestly? Twerking in front of Jack Harlow. Very uncomfortable lmao. I felt like Jack was in a very similar situation that I was in — having a super huge song and having people counting you out. That’s how I knew he would be perfect for this song.

2:56 – 3:03 Lil Nas X: My favorite scene is where we’re all dancing in the courtyard, but I’m proud of the entire video. I knew the controversy was inevitable, but I thought the video would be super fun, which it was.

3:10 – 3:15 Christian Breslauer: The prison location was our most ambitious day of the two. Choreography scenes in general take the most time to shoot and we only had an hour to shoot each one. We made it happen though, thanks to an Allstar crew.

3:22 – 3:29 Lil Nas X: The song felt like a victory lap but also an underdog anthem, and that’s what I wanted the lyrics to reflect. I wanted a song to remind people I’m not going anywhere.

MÝA — "WORTH IT" from Khalil Miles for use by 360 Magazine

MÝA — “WORTH IT”

Today, GRAMMY Award-winning R&B icon, entertainer and performer Mýa presents Mýa Lan$ky with the new single “Worth It.” Listen to “Worth it” HERE. Watch the lyric video HERE.

On the track, she leans into a seductive and sexy flow with no shortage of style, sass or spirit. Her hazy verses give way to a downright hypnotic bridge as she assures, “Best believe I own it.” The alternative between hip-hop and R&B, she carries the hook with her instantly recognizable delivery, echoing to the heavens and back.

Stay tuned for the premiere of the music video very soon.

Making headlines, she just participated in the very first Pass The Mic: BET Awards Edition. Make sure to watch it HERE.

Regarding this new phase as Mýa Lan$ky, she shared the following statement: “My independent journey has placed me on a path to becoming a better version of myself, redefining success and happiness that does not always coincide with the world’s definition. So when people hear  “Worth It,” I want them to feel strength and courage to leave any situation that does not enhance their lives. I want them to feel and adopt the fight and faith of a warrior which has assisted me in pushing through every challenge, and that spiritual component that’s kept me centered and grounded in such a chaotic world, in hopes for them to be inspired enough to apply it to their own lives by constantly pushing, learning, growing and searching for their own voices and paths of resonance, to ultimately take risks and bet on themselves, so they too can reach their highest selves and ultimately experience peace of mind and a quality life. When they see me, I want them to see what committing to yourself looks like with the clarity that you can get better with time when you pour love into every aspect of yourself. It’s when we get better that we can help others. That’s true wealth, and it is indeed worth it.”

Stay tuned for more from Mýa Lan$ky very soon as she kicks off her most fiery new chapter now!

ABOUT MÝA LAN$KY:
