JACQUEES’ RELEASES – NOT JUS ANYBODY FEATURING FUTURE

Dropping what might be his biggest collaboration yet, rising superstar and multi-platinum singer Jacquees serves up a brand new single entitled “Not Jus Anybody” featuring Future today. Get it here.

As a stark piano drips in the background, he immediately captivates with his signature show stopping vocal range on point. Meanwhile, GRAMMY® Award-winning multi-platinum hip-hop titan Future rolls through with otherworldly rhymes and a hazy melody. The track unites two Atlanta forces together once more, and the results immediately overpower in the best way. The music video, directed by Jon J, is available to watch on all streaming channels along with broadcast partners BET Jams, BET Soul, MTV Live and MTVU. Watch here.

Jacquees recently shared “Bed Friend” featuring Queen Naija. Right out of the gate, it racked up over 2 million Spotify streams. HYPEBEAST named it among the “Best New Tracks,” and Vibe raved, “This composition is one that has bedroom burner written all over it.”

Just prior, his single “Freaky As Me” featuring Mulatto eclipsed 2.8 million Spotify streams and 2.1 million views on the video.

Last month, Jacquees took the stage for a performance at the 6th Annual Black Music Honors hosted by Loni Love on Bounce TV. Jacquees delivered a blockbuster tribute performance of honoree Ginuwine’s hit “So Anxious.” Jacquees joined Cece Winans, Montell Jordan, Chrisette Michele, Zacardi Cortez, and more. In advance, he also appeared on FOX’s Good Day DC.

As a testament to Jacquees’ unprecedented success and reign at the top of R&B, the talented singer has achieved several milestones: his debut album 4275 is RIAA gold-certified and has a string of top-selling hits including “B.E.D.”(double-platinum) and “At The Club” featuring Dej Loaf (platinum) and “Your Peace” featuring Lil Baby (gold).

Everything continues to build towards his anticipated next album, coming soon.

On an unbreakable hot streak, with no signs of ceasing, Yung Pooda has proven to be a force with his magnetic appeal as he makes his way to carry the city as Houston’s next up. The 2021 breakout star was recently featured in his hometown daily paper, The Houston Chronicle where the publication exclaimed that Pooda is well on his way to being ‘Houston’s next hip hop star.Forever Tippin” comes on the heels of Pooda’s biggest record to date, “Chicken ‘N Grits” featuring Dreamdoll on the original version and Trey Songz and Dreamdoll for the official remix.

Yung Pooda could be Houston’s next hip-hop star

Houston Chronicle 

Yung Pooda is winning the battle between life and art…

Rolling Out

Nothing holds more weight than a promise.

In 2019, Yung Pooda found himself at a crossroads between the streets and the studio. After performing alongside legends such as Boosie Badazz, Slim Thug, and Z-Ro, recording with platinum icon Paul Wall, and igniting a buzz of his own throughout the country, the Houston rapper made an important pledge to himself. His pledge changed the course of everything to follow in its wake.

 “In the middle of recording and getting in all kinds trouble, I promised God I would get out of the streets and just do music,” he admits. “I stuck to my word.”

Long before this vow, hip-hop called to him as a kid in Orange, TX. Pooda’s mother bumped Naughty by Nature’s “Hip Hop Hooray” throughout the one-bedroom and one-bathroom house built by his grandfather that he and his mom shared with his grandma. As he puts it, “I used to go nuts to that song!” He used to listen to classics from OutKast, JAY-Z, Lil Wayne, Master P, Ludacris, DJ Screw, and more. When Pooda visited dad, pops actually built a home studio at his spot to cook up beats and DJ.  Growing up, he practiced his skills on the mic and sharpened the wordplay, developing a signature style. He sent shockwaves through the city after a successful showcase, earning endorsements from the likes of DJ Hi-Cof Houston’s 97.9 The BOX who said, “He’s always been a lyricist.” Inciting local excitement, he performed multiple tour dates with Boosie Badazz and teamed up with Paul Wall for the single “Beat Up The Block.”

Relocating to Prairie View, he moved into a two-story house with his cousin and two friends where they “were trapping and getting money, but shit got too hectic.” At this point, he reset everything. “There were fights, threats, and all types of shit,” he recalls. “I ended up saying that prayer.”

His music made its way to Jeff Aronson, CEO of It’s A 10 Records, a boutique label with a distribution deal with Empire, who immediately signed him in 2019. Now, he properly introduces his signature sound and vibes on his upcoming LP, Vivid Pictures. In 2020, Pooda made waves on Tik Tok and mix show radio with the release of his first single, “Repeat Dat” which was produced by GRAMMY® Award-winning duo Cool & Dre [JAY-Z, Beyoncé, Nas] along with a reflective song, “Lies Told”- his thoughtful response to social unrest and police brutality.  This year, his critically acclaimed newest single, “Chicken N Grits” is bringing him to the forefront. C&G has earned over 30 million Tik Tok views, was the #4 “Most Added” song at urban radio and is in rotation at BET Jams, Revolt and YO! MTV Raps. 

 The title track “Vivid Pictures” places cinematic verses in between soulful samples and is at the heart of Pooda’s approach to music and life.  “There’s a deep meaning,” he explains. “I aspire to be an artist and more than a rapper. I’m inspired by Picasso and Leonardo Da Vinci. When I listen to a beat in my head, I’m putting art together. The eyes are the windows to the soul. Everything is clear. Each song gives you a visual like a movie. That’s Vivid Pictures to me. It’s the frequency I want to be on.” 

In the end, Pooda fulfills every promise and leaves his mark on the culture in the process. “When you listen to me, I want you to feel enlightened and great,” he leaves off. “I hope you relate to the emotion and know you’re not alone. I’m young enough to make mistakes and old enough to know better. I’m telling my story. I’m human.”

YUNG POODA #1 NEW SINGLE “FOREVER TIPPIN” #1 MOST ADDED AT URBAN RADIO

Independent Label It’s A 10 Records’ Promo Efforts Put Yung Pooda At The Forefront

This week, Houston-based, emerging rapper Yung Pooda continues to make a name for himself as his new release, “Forever Tippin” beats out stiff competition from major label artists to be the #1 “Most Added” record at urban radio. Get it HERE.

Yung Pooda joined forces with fellow Texan rapper/producer DJ Chose to collaborate on “Forever Tippin” which is a reworking of the classic “Still Tippin'” by Mike Jones, Paul Wall and Slim Thug- who makes a cameo appearance in the riveting “Forever Tippin” video. Less than a month to release, the video has already garnered over one million views and counting and received widespread critical acclaim. See the video HERE.

Signed to It’s A 10 Records, an independent label distributed by United Masters, Pooda has been stealthily building a name for himself with an onslaught of buzzing releases over the past year including “Chicken N Grits” featuring Dream Doll and Trey Songz (on the remix), “Repeat Dat” and “Lies Told.”

“Pooda is the real deal,” says It’s A 10 Records Miami-based founder and C.E.O. Jeff Aronson who tapped the top-selling songwriter/production duo Cool & Dre to oversee Yung Pooda’s forthcoming album. “He is talented, versatile and has a lot to say. We are committed to putting the resources behind him and his upcoming album.

Chiae — "Cash Out" from Ernest Dukes for use by 360 Magazine

CHIAE — “CASH OUT”

The Atlanta R&B singer Chiae (formerly known as Malachiae) returns with a lush and lavish new single, “Cash Out,” out today on Motown. The swirling instrumental produced by T-Minus (Drake, Justin Bieber, The Weeknd) is smooth yet vibrant, setting the tone for Chiae’s tales of romantic encounters in the lap of luxury. You can watch the “Cash Out” visual HERE.

“Cash Out” is the sort of low-key ballad that Chiae has made his name on over the last few years. Dizzy synthesizers and neon sub-bass provide the soundtrack for a song full of easy romance and casual flexing. Chiae sets the scene early on: when a love interest slides into his side of town, he’s busy, making moves at the bank. But he makes time because they both appreciate the finer things in life. Sunny-eyed, he expresses his affection, while letting the instrumental breathe. It’s beautiful, light and sensual, like Chiae’s best songs to date.

This new single follows a string of sensitive and colorful tracks from the vocalist. In 2020, he released “Bedroom to the Club,” a luxe R&B song full of light-hearted come-ons, and “Get to the Bag,” a money-minded cut about providing for the one he loves. These tracks follow four years of EPs, singles and steadily building buzz for one of R&B’s rising stars. Last year, Chiae played TRILLERFEST, one of the largest virtual music festivals, alongside Migos, Mario, Pitbull, Marshmello, G Herbo and many more to help raise money for those affected by COVID-19.

Though Chiae’s just getting started, he’s already had huge success working with fellow Atlanta superstars Migos, playing a lead role in the movie Million Dollar Quartet, and securing national radio and TV plays on channels like BET Jams. “Cash Out” is proof that he remains dedicated to the grind, but that he’s also able to take time to enjoy the fruits of his budding fame, too. With songs as charismatic and magnetic as this, he’s sure to have even more success soon.
