LIL TECCA – FASTER

Launching another era now, multi-platinum rapper Lil Tecca unleashes his new single and video “Faster” today.

Listen to “Faster”: HERE
Watch “Faster”: HERE

The skittering beat gives the track a distinct jolt as Tecca tears through verses with undeniable charisma. Between bold and blunt bars, he carries a catchy chorus, You moving faster. In the accompanying visual, he lives the high life surrounded by models in the back of a luxury car and in an opulent hotel room. He surveys the night skyline alone as he raps in the midst of penthouse debauchery.

It sets the stage for more music to come from Tecca very soon.

Tecca dominated the US on his “Tecca Loves You” tour and he will continue to take stages by storm with his performance at Rolling Loud New York on Saturday, September 24 and on his tour that continues in Europe starting in Zürich Switzerland on October 13 and ending on November 7 in Lisbon, Portugal. More information on the tour is available HERE

Tecca’s latest album, We Love You Tecca 2, notably marked his third Top 10 debut on the Billboard Top 200. It also bowed at #6 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart, making for his third Top 10 debut on the respective chart as well. Meanwhile, “Never Left” and “Repeat It” vaulted on to the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Top 30 and has already tallied over 800 million global streams. Right out of the gate, We Love You Tecca 2 received widespread acclaim. HYPEBEAST cited among “the 10 best projects” of the week. HotNewHipHop proclaimed, “Lil Tecca has already proven to be a solid hitmaker in the industry, and with each new album, he impresses his fans with his summer vibes, catchy melodies, and solid hooks.” HipHopDX highlighted his “infectious jubilance,” and wrote, “Tecca’s bubbling raps have always straddled the line between Hip Hop and pop, finding catchy melodies throughout.” REVOLT declared the album “has more hits than a great number of artists twice his age.”

The sequel carried on the legacy of its predecessor, We Love You Tecca. In 2019, the original mixtape bowed at #4 on the Billboard Top 200, went platinum, and amassed 6.6 billion-plus streams.

Posting up over 8 billion streams and claiming multiple platinum certifications, Lil Tecca has quietly cemented himself as one of rap’s most vital rising superstars. In 2020, his full-length debut album, Virgo World, bowed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 and yielded two Hot 100 entries—namely “Dolly” with Lil Uzi Vert and “When You Down” feat. Lil Durk with Polo G. HotNewHipHop praised it as “a great starting point for the 18-year-old. Tecca first exploded with his platinum-certified mixtape, We Love You Tecca, and his breakout quadruple-platinum single “Ransom” in 2019. He reeled in acclaim from New York Times, Billboard, HYPEBEAST, Complex, and many others in addition to selling out shows on his first headline run, the We Love You Tecca World Tour. He launches into his next chapter with more new music coming this year.

Imagine Dragons recently made history again. “Thunder” achieved a diamond certification, enshrining the quartet as “The First Band/Group in Music History to Achieve FOUR Diamond Singles.” Meanwhile, their new double-disc opus Mercury — Acts 1 & 2 (KIDinaKORNER/Interscope) bowed at #12 on the Billboard Top 200 and earned some of the best reviews of the band’s career to date. Rolling Stone attested, Imagine Dragons still know how to efficiently stomp stadiums into rubble,” and American Songwriter hailed it as “a celebration of life.” Consequence of Sound applauded, Act II is an even more intimate gesture that further explores themes of loss and recovery, and The Associated Press summed it up best as “the sound of a band getting its arena groove back.

The 32-track epic album debuted on Friday, July 1st, and marks the boldest artistic statement of the band’s career thus far. Executive produced by Rick Rubin, the double album includes hit singles “Enemy,” “Bones,” and “Sharks” and expands on 2021’s Mercury — Act 1. While Act 1 explores themes such as love, faith, pain, passion, and loss, Act 2 focuses on sorting through personal loss and the biggest existential questions of their career.

Listen to Mercury — Acts 1 & 2 HERE. Target is also offering an exclusive CD featuring an alternative cover and extra track, available HERE.

To bring both halves of the record to life on stage, Imagine Dragons will take to the road and kick off a massive US stadium tour that will begin in August, making stops in Boston, Toronto, and their hometown of Las Vegas before wrapping up in Los Angeles, CA in September. The summer tour marks the band’s biggest North American shows of their career. Check out the full itinerary HERE.

About Imagine Dragons

​​With over 66 million album equivalents and 55 million digital songs sold, not to mention over 110 billion combined streams, Imagine Dragons are one of rock’s biggest bands of the past decade, and they’ve fully reinvented the genre in that time. In short, they own Billboard’s Top 3 rock songs of the 2010s — “Believer,” “Thunder,” and “Radioactive.” Formed in 2009, Imagine Dragons developed a grassroots following with a series of independent EPs before making their major-label debut on KIDinaKORNER/Interscope with 2012’s Continued Silence EP. That same year, their LP debut NIGHT VISIONS entered the Billboard 200 at No. 2, while lead track “Radioactive” topped Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs, won a GRAMMY® for Best Rock Performance, and achieved RIAA Diamond status. After achieving their first #1 at Alt Radio with “Radioactive,” the band immediately repeated this feat with “Demons,” marking the first back-to-back #1’s for the band, with both songs in the Top 5 simultaneously. NIGHT VISIONS is now 7x platinum in the US alone. 2015’s platinum-selling Smoke + Mirrors debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The 3x platinum-selling album EVOLVE followed in 2017, earning a GRAMMY® nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album and unleashing three No. 1 Alternative radio hits: “Believer,” GRAMMY®-nominated “Thunder,” and “Whatever It Takes.” All three songs were also top 5 hits at Alternative radio. “Believer” was the quickest song to reach #1 for Imagine Dragons, taking only 8 weeks to reach the top of the charts, with “Thunder” following closely in its rise to the #1 spot. With these singles, it marked the second time Imagine Dragons had back-to-back #1s, making Imagine Dragons one of only four bands to ever achieve simultaneous Top 5 singles and the only band to repeat this feat. The band’s fourth album and platinum-selling, ORIGINS, debuted atop Billboard’s Top Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums charts, while its lead single “Natural” spent nine weeks at No. 1 at alternative radio.

For their fifth studio album—Imagine Dragons’ first new music since 2018—the band teamed up with esteemed producer Rick Rubin. 2021’s Mercury — Act 1 debuted in the Billboard 200 top 10 and at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums charts. It also launched the singles “Wrecked,” “Cutthroat,” and “Follow You,” with the latter reaching No. 1 on both Mediabase’s Alternative Radio and Billboard’s Alternative Airplay charts. “Follow You” marked the band’s quickest ascent to the top of that Billboard chart, surpassing the respective seven- and eight-week climbs for “Natural” (2018) and “Believer” (2017). Then came “Enemy.” Originally released as the theme to Netflix’s Arcane, the hit racked up more than 4.6 billion combined global streams across two versions (including a collaboration with GRAMMY®-nominated, Atlanta-based rapper J.I.D), helping make Imagine Dragons the highest streaming American band in the US in 2021. In 2022, they expanded the world of Mercury with a double album, Mercury – Acts 1 & 2, including the single “Bones,” which has gathered over 380 million streams to date, and the accompanying music video has scored 38 million-plus YouTube views.  Sorting through personal loss and the biggest existential questions of their career, singer/songwriter Dan Reynolds says the two-part release is about learning to “accept the unknown” and “let go,” healing feelings Imagine Dragons are hoping to share with fans as they embark on some of their biggest shows ever this summer.

Daddy Yankee Album LEGENDADDY via U Music Group for use by 360 MAGAZINE

DADDY YANKEE – LEGENDADDY

Daddy Yankee’s critically acclaimed chart-topping magnum opus and final album, LEGENDADDY, is officially THE BIGGEST LATIN ALBUM OF 2022.

It just went platinum (Latin), and the RIAA has recognized it with the “Top Latin Album Released in 2022 At Mid-Year” Award. Thus far, it has impressively racked up over 1 billion streams and counting.

The impact of LEGENDADDY only continues to grow. The recent music video for “X Última Vez” has amassed over 69 million YouTube views and counting. Rolling Stone fittingly declared, LEGENDADDY is Daddy Yankee’s final victory lap, marking the end of a lengthy career for the undisputed king of reggaeton.” It’s just the beginning though of a massive summer for Daddy Yankee.
Speaking to the excitement around the last chapter of his genre-defining career, his farewell tour “LA ÚLTIMA VUELTA” (The Last Round) has already sold out in advance of its launch this summer.

Upon release, LEGENDADDY landed as the #1 Latin Album in the World. It bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top Latin Albums Chart, arriving as his fifth consecutive #1 debut on the respective chart. Additionally, it catapulted into the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 at #8, marking his highest position on the chart to date and first Top 10 in 15 years since 2007’s El Cartel: The Big Boss. Additionally, it soared to #1 on the Spotify Weekly Top Albums Chart.

LEGENDADDY incited widespread critical applause. Variety proclaimed, “Spanning over three decades of music, the 19-track collection captures the essence of reggaeton, salsa, dancehall, rap, trap, bachata, EDM, and Caribbean influencers, and The New York Times noted, “The most dynamic moments come when Yankee reaches for the magic of the past – whether indulging in boastful hubris or summoning listeners into dance floor reverie.Rolling Stone awarded the record “4-out-of-5 stars” and raved, He’s going out in a blaze of glory.

Right out of the gate, LEGENDADDY took over Spotify worldwide, ascending to #1 on the Global Album Chart, achieving the biggest streaming day of his career on Spotify with a staggering 35.7 million streams—almost double his prior career-best. Additionally, five of the album’s music videos vaulted into the Top 10 on YouTube. He has bested his own personal records with the album – and it has only just begun to catch fire too!

Listen to LEGENDADDYHERE

However, his goodbye is hardly an occasion for tears. Instead, LEGENDADDY might just be the biggest part of the century as he invites a variety of A-list friends to celebrate over three decades of music on this 19-track opus. To herald the record’s arrival, he accompanied the release with nine exhilarating and high-energy music videos for “AGUA,” “LA OLA,” “ZONA DEL PERREO,” “HOT,” “BOMBÓN,” “EL ABUSADOR DEL ABUSADOR,” “IMPARES,” and for his single “REMIX. The single’s head-nodding beat and reggaeton production underscore hard-hitting verses and a rafter-reaching refrain. It pops off as a banger on par with his most applauded output. The accompanying visual proves equally scorching, stylish, and sexy.

From the epic Michael Buffer-led opener “LEGENDADDY” through the emotional finale “BLOKE,LEGENDADDY traverses a myriad of styles and sounds made famous by Daddy Yankee throughout his iconic run thus far. Other highlights on the album include “CAMPEÓN,” which tackles his career and what it took for him to be a champion in the industry as well as his staple signature tropical fusion sound that he melds together so well with the Luny (Luny Tunes)-produced track “RUMBATÓN.”

Not to mention, he attracts his most superb guest list yet. Rauw Alejandro and Nile Rodgers rolls through for “AGUA, while he and Bad Bunny turn up on “X ÚLTIMA VEZ. There’s also the unshakable and unforgettable “ZONA DE PERREO” with Natti Natasha and Becky G and “HOT” with Mr. Worldwide himself, Pitbull. Lil Jon and El Alfa team up for the international banger “BOMBÓN” and on “PASATIEMPO,” he links up with Myke Towers for an explosive anthem, while “PARA SIEMPRE” sees him turn up with Sech.

For one last time, he will canvas the world on his sold out tour “LA ÚLTIMA VUELTA” (The Last Round). Promoted by Cardenas Marketing Network and Raphy Pina, MR Sold Out, the five-month trek includes some of the rapper-songwriters’ biggest headline shows in North America and Latin America to date.

That album is LEGENDADDY, and it is here forever.

About Daddy Yankee
As a culture creator, game changer, agent of change, and groundbreaker, Daddy Yankee has consistently inspired, impacted, and influenced generations of creators. An indisputable icon, he remains one of the most influential artists of all time, bringing reggaeton worldwide for the first time. Latin music and culture would not look, sound, or feel the same without him. It’s hard to even imagine the genre itself without “Gasolina,” “Despacito” [with Luis Fonsi], or “Con Calma” [with Snow], and more.

Since 1995, he has consistently conquered charts, toppled records, and made history on his own terms. The magnitude of his accolades proves nearly impossible to match or exceed. Living up to the title of “King of Reggaeton, he has moved north of 30 million records as one of the best-selling Latin music artists of all-time.” Out of hundreds of awards, he has scored five Latin GRAMMY® Awards, eight Billboard Music Awards, 26 Billboard Latin Music Awards, four Latin American Music Awards (including the Icon Award), 17 Lo Nuestro Awards, an MTV VMA, and 10 ASCAP Awards in addition to earning a spot on the Puerto Rican Walk of Fame and the “Presencia Latina at Harvard University. He also stands out as the only Latin Artist with four Spanish-language entries on the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100. He received Songwriter of the Year three times at the 2021 ASCAP Latin Music Awards and distinguished himself as the first urban Latino artist to enter the Billboard Hall of Fame.
