21-year-old singer/songwriter Jossef has swiftly taken the music industry by storm. Originally from Puerto Rico, as he defines, “it is the place where champions are born, we have a lot of potential.”

Jossef began releasing his own original music at the age of 17, debuting his track “Zumba.” Specializing in the Latin urban genre, Jossef pours his unique flare and attitude into his work. Having a large presence online with over 180K followers on Instagram and 340K on YouTube, Jossef’s tracks typically reach viral status, allowing him to reach a diverse audience. He now belongs to the new wave of artists who have surpassed 100 million streams on Spotify.

“I feel very content and happy for the artistic career I am leading. I admit that I am in [my] best artistic moment, and epic things are coming this year. Music for me is number one, without it there is nothing,” Jossef said while chatting about his career.

Jossef’s prominent social media presence has allowed him to dabble in differing industries. Using fashion as another creative outlet, Jossef speaks to how his style allows him to display more of his individuality to his audience. “Regarding fashion, I am designing a collection of unique, different, and epic pieces. I always try to separate myself from the rest and be innovative and create different things. I like to push everything to the limit and clothes are no exception.”

Though the artist has such a prominent social media presence, his music has cemented himself as an artist on the rise. In 2020, Jossef landed himself a spot amongst Billboard’s “Latin Teen artist to Keep on Your Radar.” He, too, had the opportunity to represent Puerto Rico in the Renown Music industry: MIEDEMA’S Accelerator Program.

Some of Jossef’s other admired pieces include “X2,” DESVELO,” “HASTA QUE ME PERDONES,” “X2 REMIX” featuring Mariah Angeliq and “Algoritmo” with Totoy El Frio, totaling over 15 million streams in all. Regarding his latest release in new track “Que Raro,” Jossef was excited to consider how the track is unique from his other music.  He states, “’Que Raro,’ is a different topic. I like to create and invent things within the musical style of reggaeton. This single has an essence of reggaeton 2004-2005 with a fresh mix of reggaeton from 2022.”

Mati Gomez × Emilia Mernes – Tu Debilidad

Artists Mati Gomez and Emilia Mernes have teamed up for the release of “Tu Debilidad” under Sony Music Latin/La Industria, accompanied by a music video. The song was produced by Gabriel E. Gonzalez and “Rec808″/Silverio Lozada. The video was directed by Santiago Lafee.

“It is a song that I really enjoyed with Emilia, beyond that is something that has happened to all of us, it connected us right away and we gave it our all when we sang it,” says Mati. “I am a dreamer who seeks to identify with many people in the world. I love different things and with this song we want to propose something very fresh and vibrant, something that will change moods! A song that I dedicate to couples who are having unnecessary bad times, this is the song that will remind you that the good often prevails and that it is worth trying and trying even more so when you know that this person is your weakness.”

The project comes after the release of “Verte,” which has over 452 thousand views on YouTube. He also dropped “Mi Viejo” in June which has reached over 522 million views.

HARD ROCK TRIO THE WARNING NEW SINGLE – EVOLVE

As they continue racking up fans, followers, and acclaim from the media and music icons alike, the Monterrey Mexico hard rock sister trio The Warning have emerged to unveil “EVOLVE,” their new single released via LAVA/Republic Records.

“We wrote ‘EVOLVE’ about humanity’s dangerous obsession with evolving,” the band said. “And how sometimes that evolution leads us to slowly leave our humanity behind. Is this dehumanizing evolution right or wrong?”

Produced by the legendary David Beneath (Paramore, Bring Me The Horizon, Breaking Benjamin), “Evolve” is a musical journey led by Daniela Daniela “Dany” [guitar, lead vocals, piano], Paulina “Pau” [drums, vocals, piano], and Alejandra “Ale” Villarreal [bass, piano, backing vocals]. Dany’s vocals simmer with intensity, building tension before exploding into a chorus that unleashes the full force of the energy the sisters bring to every performance. With its signature changes and transformational truth-telling, “EVOLVE” is a track that will keep listeners on the edge of their seats throughout the entire sonic ride. The video, recorded with 16 iPhones and a drone, is a dangerous, fast-paced trip that visually amplifies the anxiety of “EVOLVE” in stunning fashion.

“EVOLVE” comes hot on the heels of the release of their Lava Records debut single, “CHOKE,” for which the band took part in a streamed event/interview with legendary rock tastemaker Matt Pinfield. “CHOKE” cracked over a million streams right out of the gate, drawing acclaim from Loudwire, Rolling Stone Mexico, and Billboard Argentina. Adding to the praise, Pau was called out by the band’s musical peers Olivia Rodrigo and WILLOW for her stunning drum covers of their songs “brutal” and “t r a n s p a r e n t s o u l” on TikTok.

Coming soon: the band has been tapped by Metallica for a cover of “Enter Sandman,” the track that first sent the trio into viral music stardom. The single will be featured on The Metallica Blacklist album, the 30-year anniversary reissue of Metallica’s iconic self-titled 5th album, also known as The Black Album. The reissue is set for release on September 10. In addition, fans will be able to catch The Warning on the road as they perform at the Welcome To Rockville Festival, open for the Foo Fighters in front of a 60,000-person crowd at Mexico City’s Foro Sol, and at a two-night sold-out run at the Troubadour in January 2022.

Stay tuned for more music and news to come as The Warning continues to surge to the forefront of hard rock!
