Several activations are planned between now and the end of the year to honor Michael’s epic creation which won a record setting 8 Grammys, smashed musical barriers and changed the frontiers of pop music and videos forever.  Michael Jackson’s Thriller has spent more than 500 weeks on the Billboard album chart and has sold over 100 million albums since its release on November 30, 1982. The first such activation is the first drop of new merchandise featuring the special Thriller 40 logo which is now available exclusively through the MichaelJackson.com Official Site.

MORE ABOUT THRILLER:

Thriller holds a modern-day record of 37 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard. It was the first album in history to spend each of its first 80 weeks in the album chart’s Top 10, a feat only reached by one other album in the nearly four decades since. During its 112th week on Billboard’s album chart, it became the first title ever to be certified RIAA 20X multi-Platinum (October 30, 1984) and became the first title ever to be certified more than RIAA 30X multi-Platinum in 2015 and since has been certified at 34x Multi-Platinum.  

Worldwide, Thriller went to #1 in practically every country in the world, including the UK, France, Italy, Australia, Denmark, Belgium, South Africa, Spain, Ireland, New Zealand, Canada and apartheid South Africa and remains the biggest selling album of all time with sales in excess of 100 million.  Seven tracks from the album became Top 10 singles, and three, Beat It, Billie Jean, and Thriller, went No. 1. 

The music on Thriller was so singular for the time it defied any definition of rock, pop or soul that had gone before. Beat It was a new kind of pop-rock hybrid and demolished the longstanding segregation between black and white music with Eddie Van Halen’s incendiary guitar. On The Girl Is Mine, two men, one white and one Black, banter about the same girl. On the same album were songs like the African-rooted Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin and the rhythm and blues-based Billie Jean.   

Michael set out to revolutionize how to tell a story and entertain on a grand scale through film but faced roadblocks. Despite the luscious cinematography, dramatic narrative and spectacular choreography of Billie Jean, a fledgling MTV, which was programming white rock artists almost exclusively, refused to play it. Epic persisted. Once the wall came crashing down, MTV’s ratings soared and a door was opened for a generation of African American artists. “He was MTV’s Jackie Robinson,” said cultural critic Touré.

Next, came the unforgettable short film for Beat It, which featured Michael bringing two gangs together through the power of music and dance. And then there was Thriller. Premiered at the AVCO Theatre in Los Angeles in 1983, it sold out every night for three weeks. No other video before or since has generated such excitement and has such a hold on our attention, such that 40 years later we all share it as a collective memory and it remains the only music video to be inducted into the elite National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.

Music from Thriller and Michael’s other hit albums is featured in the hit Las Vegas show Michael Jackson ONE, at the Michael Jackson ONE Theater in Mandalay Bay Resorts and Casino and in the acclaimed Broadway musical MJ The Musical at the Neil Simon Theatre in New York, which was nominated for 10 Tony Awards last week. Michael Jackson One by Cirque du Soleil is an electrifying fusion of dance, acrobatics, virtual parade of ‘wow’ moments that introduces the audience to the world of Michael’s music. Powered by his greatest hits heard like never before in an amazing state-of-the-art surround sound environment. ONE takes the audience on a visual and musical immersion through 63 dancers and artists with aerial performances, vivid choreography and driving stunts that use urban/hip hop language as a tool for exploration.

Michael has sold more than 1 billion records and remains one of the top streaming artists in the world.

MILES × LØLØ – THE INTERNET

LA-based singer/songwriter and rapper MILES unveiled his new single, “THE INTERNET,” featuring LA by-way-of Toronto pop-punk artist LØLØ. Punctuated by bouncy guitars, breezy beats and a melodic flow, the track is a sunny anthem leading into the summer season. Listen HERE. The accompanying music video is also out and highlights the challenges of dating in the modern era. Of the song’s inspiration, MILES explained with a laugh, “It’s about scrolling online during quarantine, seeing beautiful women, and knowing there’s no chance.” Watch the new visual HERE.

Of the new collaboration, LØLØ added, “I got connected with MILES through my manager and label, and we instantly hit it off in a session. A few weeks later, I saw him tease a song concept on TikTok, and I made a duet to it, without thinking too much into it. He saw it, felt there was something there, and we got back into the studio and actually turned it into a collab.

MILES creates big, high-energy tracks that people can relate to when navigating life and relationships. Early Rising called “MISS INDEPENDENT,” MILES’ first-released single of 2022, a “brilliant feel-good track that continues his exciting trajectory to becoming a household name,” while MUD Magazine praised his “unique sound” that is setting him up to be “one of [their] favorite artists.” MILES is also currently in the studio working on new original music, slated for release this summer. Stay tuned for more to come.

About MILES

MILES’ story might be almost as wild as his fusion of breezy hip-hop, earthshaking pop, and grimy rock. The St. Louis-born and Los Angeles-based singer and rapper bobs and weaves past genre lines with an unpredictable and undeniable style of his own. Predestining their son for music, mom and dad named him in homage to jazz icon Miles Davis. In turn, MILES cranked his old man’s jazz records as well as Kirk Franklin, Bill Withers, Lauryn Hill, Black Eyed Peas and Lil Wayne. Slowly, but surely, MILES developed a following online before cooking up “WHAT IN TARNATION” (2020) back in St. Louis. Beyond inspiring thousands of TikTok videos, it raked in millions of streams as he signed to Elektra Records. He maintained his momentum with the captivating, high-energy follow-up singles “DESPERADOS” and “MOSH PIT.” His new releases with Elektra kickstart a new era for this exciting artist to watch.

About LØLØ

Born and raised in Toronto and now calling LA home, LØLØ has become an undeniable presence in the pop-punk genre. The singer-songwriter has created a striking presence both online and on stage with her effortlessly cool attitude and sharp lyricism. In 2020, LØLØ created a buzz on TikTok where she reimagined music’s biggest hits. Putting her adept lyrical skills to use, she rewrote verses from the opposite perspective of the song’s subject, while still maintaining the original integrity of each song’s tempo and rhyme scheme. Most notably, her take on Taylor Swift‘s “Betty” from “Betty’s Perspective” caught the attention of Swifties and went viral on the platform. In late 2021, LØLØ released her electric EP overkill, which came directly on the heels of her 36-stop US tour with pop-punk titans New Found Glory and Less Than Jake. LØLØ has been compared to Paramore and Avril Lavigne by Billboard, as well as receiving critical acclaim from Paper Magazine, MTV, Kerrang!, American Songwriter, Ones to Watch, Alternative Press, and many more. People Magazine called her an “Emerging Artist making their mark in music” and to date she’s amassed over 35 million streams on Spotify with her numbers continuing to climb exponentially. LØLØ is on the brink of superstardom, so stay tuned as there’s much more to come.

Addison Grace – Immaturing

Salt Lake City-based musician and TikTok star Addison Grace finally releases his highly anticipated debut EP, Immaturing, along with its fourth single, “I Don’t Wanna Fall In Love,” out now. In addition to the five-track EP, Addison Grace will hit the road beginning this August across the U.S. on his debut headline tour with support from Sydney Rose on all dates, and Kate Stephenson and Leanna Firestone on select dates. Tickets are on sale now HERE.

On the rock-leaning, Cameron Hale-produced (Claud, Neon Trees, Khalid) “I Don’t Wanna Fall In Love,” Addison Grace questions and challenges traditions like marriage and a picket fence, and gets sick of swiping to find love. Instead, Grace hopes for more out of life than just what might be expected of him and refuses to live a mundane, ordinary life. Beginning at age 18, Grace illustrates what they don’t want to be doing at ages 23 and 43, singing, “I don’t wanna be 23 / with a white picket fence / no job and no degree / if that’s in then / I don’t wanna fall in love / love, love, love, love / I don’t wanna be 43 / living half my life, nothing to show of me / if that’s it, if that’s it / maybe, maybe it’s just me.”

“I Don’t Wanna Fall In Love,” challenges the societal idea that one needs love to find happiness, that perhaps one might be better off prioritizing self-love, and finding joy within one’s self instead of searching for it in others. It’s a track that came to Grace unexpectedly with the help of producer and songwriter Luke Arens and the aforementioned Cameron Hale. Grace explains, “IDWFIL was a song I never expected to write! It started as a song that was about being frustrated about not being able to find love but then, with Luke Arens help, it turned into a song about wanting to find joy in being ‘just you’ and hating that society tells you that you need love to find happiness,” says Grace. “Cameron Hale, the producer, helped me make it the angsty pump-up song I needed and wanted it to be. I guess overall I never expected this song to exist but I’m unbelievably happy it does now and I think a lot of others will be happy too.”

Grace could not be more ready to bring listeners into the warm, approachable world they’ve built with Immaturing. Grace explains, “I’ve been so excited to finish and release this set of songs and finally have my first official EP! Immaturing started as a group of independent songs that somehow ended up perfectly telling what it feels like to grow up. While the order of the songs plays a key role—each song still has its own feel, its own story, and I hope everyone can find their own way to relate regardless of where they are in life. This is, quite literally, my teenage and young adulthood told in music form.”

The EP’s previous three singles have each been met with praise from a slew of leading tastemakers and garnered millions of streams. The second single from the EP, “Makes Me Sick,” also produced by Hale, caught the attention of Billboard, who wrote, “The result is a heartbreaking anthem dedicated to self-sabotage, where Grace details their exploits in navigating the lovesick feeling they’re caught in. EUPHORIA lauded, “What makes ‘Makes Me Sick’ a highlight of Grace’s discography is its raw and honest vulnerability into something as complex and deeply felt like love. It’s a song for the people who have been hurt in the past; the ones who are unsure of if they deserve better treatment by whoever comes along next.”

Vulnerable fan-favorite and lead single from the EP, “I Wanna Be A Boy,” allows Grace to discover more of themselves and their gender identity, amassing over 1.4 million streams on Spotify alone. Glasse Factory wrote, “I Wanna Be a Boy” is immensely touching in both writing and sound. Grace’s hard-earned ability of singing shines beautifully in every second of the track, as he speaks about who he wishes he was, and coming to terms with the difficulty of acceptance.” TREMG called the track, “a tender exploration of identity over an acoustic guitar and thumping beat.”

Conan Gray × Met Gala

Platinum-selling singer, songwriter, and Gen-Z pop king Conan Gray made his Met Gala debut wearing custom Valentino. The look was a dreamy white and silver embellished ensemble with a flowing chiffon cape and was accompanied by shoes by Valentino

The Valentino Custom Made look was specially designed for Conan Gray by Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli. Silver sequins are all over embroidered pants, with a white tulle embroidered shirt and a chiffon cape with Valentino Garavani platform white boots. 

Here is what Gray had to say on the look/inspiration: “It’s an honor to attend my first MET Gala dressed by Valentino. I wanted to create a look that felt simultaneously Gilded Age, yet modern Valentino. My main goal with Pierpaolo and Katie Qian was to capture the message of gilded age elegance and glamor. Above all, I wanted a cape.”

Stylist Katie Qian commented, “I think the final look really captures a modern take on the excess and extravagance of the Gilded Age, all while tying in Valentino’s bold elegance and Conan’s regal personal style.”

This is the third time Gray has teamed up with Valentino, as he made his Coachella debut wearing custom Valentino for both weekends. The looks were put on numerous best-dressed lists for the weekend and had Vogue saying “Conan Gray’s Hot Pink Valentino Look Shut Down Coachella.” Find the review HERE.

Up next Conan will be headed to Europe to continue his 2022 Conan Gray World Tour in support of his sophomore album, Superache, out June 24th. 

About Conan Gray

Since releasing original demos on his YouTube channel at the age of 15, Conan Gray has emerged as one of the pre-eminent pop superstars of his generation. Even after the commercial success of global multi-platinum hits “Heather” and “Maniac“, his music continues to maintain its unflinching authenticity and originality. Gray’s debut album, Kid Krow, crafted by Gray and longtime collaborator and producer Dan Nigro, reached #5 on the Billboard 200, #1 on the Billboard Pop Albums chart and became the biggest new artist debut of the year. In the summer of 2020, when “Heather” topped charts around the world, Sir Elton John publicly praised Gray for being the only artist on the Spotify top 50 to have written the song entirely on their own. With over 7 billion streams, Gray has attracted unanimous applause from a who’s who of tastemakers including Vogue, GQ, V Man, Paper, Fader, Billboard, NPR, MTV, I-D, Wonderland, Clash, Notion, and has delivered rapturous performances on television shows such as Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Late Late Show with James Corden and The Today Show. Gray’s much anticipated sophomore album is set for release on June 24th, 2022.

Kendy X – Misplaced

California Chanteuse, R&B sensation and singer/songwriter Kendy X announced April 29 as the official release date for her highly anticipated debut project, Misplaced, via her label, Rose Records. The rapturous announcement is backed by the unveiling of the project’s official cover art and tracklist, including her Billboard placed (Peaked #14 on the R&B Digital Song Sales) debut single “For Me” featuring DreamDoll and Kalan.FrFr

Critics have raved over Kendy X. Lyrical Lemonade said, “Rose Records signee KENDY X has a new hit on her hands for the ladies.” “Be sure to press play on KendyX’s brand new ‘For Me (Remix)’ featuring DreamDoll and Kalan.Fr.Fr,” said Revolt TV. “The rising R&B artist breathes new life into her debut single,” said Hot New Hip Hop

Last week, the rising R&B star was announced as the official opening act on Kalan.FrFr’s Never Lose You tour kicking off on April 28 in Orlando, Florida.

About Kendy X

The Chicago-born and Long Beach-raised singer, songwriter, and co-founder of The Rose Fest Music Festival hustles with the heart of an athlete (she was once a renowned gymnast) as she simultaneously projects a fresh and fiery presence across the culture. Kendy X’s vision begins to unfold on her 2022 independent debut project and much more to come.

She devoted the first eighteen years of her life to gymnastics until torn ligaments in her knee derailed an ambition to compete in The Olympics. Along the way, she picked up cello and piano in middle school and always wrote songs of her own. Inspired by her older sister Ry Dope, she penned her first tune at just six years old. Meanwhile, dad played multiple instruments, specializing in guitar and songwriting, enjoying local success in Chicago.

Despite its influence on the periphery of her life, she fully embraced music in 2019.

“After I stopped training, music came in,” she admits. “I found my new passion to focus on. It always got me through difficult times. This moment was no exception.”

From that point forward, she went full steam ahead throughout 2021. Alongside Ry Dope, she launched The Rose Music Festival as a state-of-the-art Southern California festival experience. Not only did the founders perform, but the stacked lineup boasted Mozzy, Rubi Rose, Eric Bellinger, Day Sulan, Stunna, Kalan.FrFr, 1TakeJay and more. At the same time, Kendy X hit the studio and recorded what would become her soon-to-be-released EP. Produced by Ayo & Keyz [Cardi B, Chris Brown, Bryson Tiller], the first single, “For Me,” served as a slick and sexy introduction to her signature style. As the original version generated over 1 million total streams, Kalan.FrFr and DreamDoll stunted on the Remix with surefire star power.

In the end, Kendy X has become just what she was always meant to be—a force of nature.

“Music was always the thing that helped me feel like I’m okay,” she leaves off. “We’re all going through things, but we’ve got each other. I hope people relate to my songs, and they feel a sense of happiness, reliability and love.”

Legendaddy Garners 600M Streams

Daddy Yankee‘s critically acclaimed chart-topping magnum opus and final album, LEGENDADDY, has already eclipsed 600 million global streams and counting in less than a month! 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. He also recently shared the music video for “X ÚLTIMA VEZ” with Bad Bunny. It has generated 40 million-plus views thus far.

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 the 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. The album reached #1 in 19 markets, including Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Mexico, Spain and more on Apple Music‘s all-genres list. Additionally, five of the album’s music videos have 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 LEGENDADDY HERE.

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.

Watch all of the videos HERE.

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 “RUMBATÓN.”

Not to mention, he attracted 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. He also collaborated with some of the industry’s hottest producers including Play-N-Skillz, Luny (Luny Tunes), Tainy, OMB, JBD, Dímelo Flow, Slow Mike, Nekxum, BK, Jhon El Diver, Wiso, Alex Killer, G.O.K.B., Maki Váez, Scott Summers, Chris Jedi, Gaby Music, Muzik Junkies, DJ Morphius and Blu Rey.

LEGENDADDY stands out as his first album in ten years and his boldest, brightest, and biggest musical statement ever.

For one last time, he will canvas the world on his sold-out “LA ÚLTIMA VUELTA” (The Last Round) tour. 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.

On his retirement, Daddy Yankee said, “Today, I’m announcing my retirement from music by giving you my best production and concert tour. I will say goodbye celebrating these 32 years of experience with this new collector’s item, my album LEGENDADDY. I’m going to give you all the styles that have defined me in one single album.”

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.
