About Trippie Redd:

Since delivering his debut mixtape A Love Letter to You in 2017, multi-platinum-selling, chart-topping rapper/singer/songwriter Trippie Redd has continually defied genre boundaries, embedding his melodic take on rap with frenetic elements of rock-and-roll and heavy metal. A self-professed workaholic, Trippie has now debuted five consecutive projects in the top 5 of the Billboard 200 chart.

Born Michael Lamar White IV and raised in Canton, Ohio, he grew up on hip-hop icons like Tupac Shakur, Nas, and Jay-Z, but later became fascinated with the shock-rock of Slipknot and Rob Zombie. As he recalls, the urge to create his own music arose soon after his older brother (an aspiring rapper who went by the name Dirty Redd) died in a car accident when Trippie was 10. “I took his dream and did it myself,” Trippie says now. Drawing much of his inspiration from the free-flowing style and inventive lyricism of Lil Wayne, Trippie began recording in his cousin’s basement and later relocated to Atlanta to further hone his skills, quickly landing a record deal with 10K Projects.

Though 2020 brought its fair share of adjustments for the rapper with the arrival of COVID-19, Trippie used his time in quarantine to make some of his boldest career moves yet. He made his Hollywood acting debut in a cameo during an episode of Lil Dicky’s critically acclaimed DAVE. He also dropped his highly anticipated album, Pegasus, on Halloween. The mythical LP, which debuted at #2, included the intoxicating “Excitement” featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR and showed Trippie bridging the generational gap with the legendary Busta Rhymes on “I Got You.” The deluxe version of Pegasus comes in the form of NEON SHARK, a collaboration album with production from Travis Barker.

ELHAE – SEPARATED

WATCH THE VISUAL FOR “SEPARATED” HERE

STREAM “SEPARATED” HERE

Emerging as a melodic force of nature, rare groove enthusiast, singer and lyricist, Elhae releases his music video for “Separated“ out now. A follow up to his infectious “Fun Fact“ single featuring Rick Ross, “Separated” showcases a more complex side of Elhae that his fans have yet to experience. The beautifully shot visual, directed by Loris Russier, captures the emotional dynamic between two lovers who are desperately trying to hold on to their union, but ultimately realize that they’re better off apart. The visual portrays raw imagery with emotional highs and lows as Elhae painfully sings of heartbreak and love lost. Watch it HERE.

Praised by XXL as being “the next R&B sensation that’s about to make a huge wave in the industry,” the visual encompasses all the elements of a classic period piece tied into a modern-day love story, proving that Elhae’s creativity and talent are both layered and timeless. “Choosing “Separated” as a single was a no-brainer for me. I just think it’s such a relatable song in the sense that everyone’s been there before, in that heartbroken space, that disappointed space.” Elhae continues, “It’s not an easy topic for most, but on the other side of it usually comes growth and wisdom.”

“I was really stoked to have Loris Russier direct the video. My creative director Siwoo Lee really put me on to his work and I just loved the colors he was using, the shots and angles he used to convey emotion.” Elhae continues “I knew he’d be the right guy for the job. Although it’s impossible to show a whole relationship in 3 minutes, the goal was to try to show how good things can be and then instantly not be with someone you love. The song is really emotional, and I just wanted to pair that with something just as emotional visually. I love how everything came out and excited to work on more projects with Loris in the future.”

Known for his creativity and incredible attention to detail, Elhae’s vision for the single’s cover art was inspired by the parable of Samson & Delilah, a story of man who lost his strength due to putting his trust into the wrong woman. Produced by P2J (Beyonce’s Brown Skin Girl) and co-written by Ari PenSmith (Doja Cat, Snoh Aalegra) “Separated” showcases Elhae in rare form as he boldly sings “I’m man enough to take the blame for my mistakes, it’s unfortunate you wanna try again, I can’t relate.”

In addition to XXL, Elhae has garnered glowing praise from The FaderBillboardVibeThe Source, and more. His 2016 album All Have Fallen produced hits like “Doesn’t Matter” (feat. Kehlani) and “Needs,” which has over 19M Spotify streams. 2017’s Aura II EP boasted the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted “Bang Your Line,” which adds to its 24M Spotify streams every day. Outside his solo work, Elhae has collaborated with stars like Lecrae and Eric Bellinger. Following his 2018 Coachella performance, he released his conceptual album Trouble in Paradise (2019).

About Elhae:

North Dakota-born and Georgia-raised singer, artist, and visionary ELHAE approaches R&B like a film director would, choosing every element carefully, ensuring an intricate level of cohesion, and building his own world. Since catching fire in 2015 on the independent Aura EP, he worked towards eventually architecting such a world. The follow-up All Have Fallen yielded fan favorites such as “Doesn’t Matter” [feat Kehlani] and “Needs,” which clocked 19 million-plus Spotify streams. In between, he garnered glowing praise from the likes of The FaderBillboardVibeThe Source, and more as Sprite named him among its P.O.U.R. (Purveyors of Urban Reality) program. The 2017 sequel to Aura, the Aura II EP, boasted “Drama,” “Something,” and the popular “Bang Your Line” [feat. Ty Dolla $ign]. The latter ignited 24 million Spotify streams and counting. Meanwhile, he lent his voice to high-profile collaborations with Lecrae, Eric Bellinger, and many others in addition to supporting blackbear on tour.

2018 saw him grace the stage of Coachella for the first time in front of 40,000 fans as he diligently worked on new tunes in Los Angeles, Miami, and Atlanta. Inspired by childhood favorite albums such as Kid Cudi’s Man on the Moon: The End of Day, Childish Gambino’s Because the Internet, and Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City, he developed an airtight vision with a detailed plotline for his next release. In 2019, the vision unfolds over the course of his twelve-track conceptual project, Trouble In Paradise [Atlantic Records], introduced by the intoxicating first single “Hennessy.” His sound is about to blow up on the biggest canvas possible now.

7715 New Song and Video

The Southern California-based alternative pop band 7715 released a new song titled “Lost in Boston” on Tuesday.

The song is accompanied by a music video that you can see by clicking right here.

The lyrics of the song suggest the band has met someone in Boston they love spending time with. The video leads us to believe they’d prefer the sunny beaches of Southern California, but they’re willing to stick around in Boston for a minute if it means they can get a personal tour of the city from this stranger at the bar.

“Lost in Boston” follows “Gone,” 7715’s song from earlier this year featuring Lil Aaron, and this summertime anthem will be featured on the band’s debut EP “Encino,” which is slated to release in September.

7715 most recently accompanied Bryce Vine and Mod Sun and is comprised of four members. JP Clark, the songwriter, has written for artists like Blink 182, blackbear, Bryce Vine and Lukas Graham. Stu Da Boi raps, Tyler Wilson sings and Daniel Geraghty plays guitar and produces the songs.

Their name came from the address of the house that came to be the band’s birthplace. While partying, jamming and partying some more, they found that they could combine their talents to make songs that are magnets to ears.

Robert Grace – Fake Fine

Irish pop newcomer Robert Grace releases “Fake Fine,” marking Robert’s first release with Sony Music Germany/RCA Records. Robert has the ability to write slices of cool heartfelt pop readymade for radio and his current single “Fake Fine” is no exception. Showcasing Robert’s skills as a songwriter and a performer in his own right, “Fake Fine” sums up the trials and tribulations of living in the current climate.

“The song is about pretending to be ok when you’re really not,” says Robert. “When everything is all an act. You might not even be in a bad situation but still, for some reason somethings not right and you’re trying to figure out what that something is.”

Robert has developed into a hugely in-demand songwriter, having co-written tracks with Dan McDougall, Blair MacKichan, and Josh Wilkinson. His previous track “Moving Fast” was track of the week on 2fm and his song “The Good Place” was added to the influential “Easy” playlist on Spotify. The Kilkenny singer-songwriter has performed at Ireland’s biggest festivals Electric Picnic & Indiependence, as well as co-writing with some of the most prestigious songwriters in the UK.

“Sounding like a cross between Lauv, Twenty One Pilots and blackbear, “Fake Fine’s” fun melody and tone offers an upbeat feel to the track’s thought-provoking lyrics about the trials and tribulations of living in the current climate. It’s readymade for radio play.” Record of the Day UK

“Robert is the Irish version of Troye Sivian and Lauv writing and producing slick commercial pop songs readymade for daytime radio” Eoghan McDermott, Presenter 2fm Breakfast Show

Quinn XCII – A Letter To My Younger Self

Quinn XCII’s third studio album, A Letter To My Younger Self, was released today.

With the release comes a lyric video for one of its tracks, “Am I High Rn” feat. blackbear.

“This song is song about being high for the first time and dealing with the feelings of paranoia, excitement, worry,” says Quinn XCII. “It really encapsulates the ability to just accept what you’re observing and let things be as they are.”

“A Letter To My Younger Self ultimately attests to the joy of living in the moment and learning to trust your instincts at any age or phase of life,” A press release reads, “It unfolds with a nostalgia-soaked but forward-thinking collision of pop, hip-hop, alternative, and soul… The result is a body of work that radiates an undeniable hope even as Quinn XCII dives into painful subject matter, each track elevated by his warm vocal presence, kinetic rhythms, and complex yet addictive melodies.”

“The message I want to get across is to not beat yourself up too much when things in life aren’t going your way,” Quinn XCII adds. “In those moments, some things may seem like the most intense and important thing you’ll ever go through, but try to remember that it’s all just a very small chapter in a much greater life story.”

Since 2015, Halsey has amassed over 25 billion streams worldwide and sold more than 11 million adjusted albums globally. She has played sold out dates on five continents (including New York City’s Madison Square Garden), been nominated for a GRAMMY® and appeared on a wide variety of magazine covers, including Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan, NYLON, Forbes, Playboy and Billboard. Her 2015 debut album, BADLANDS, was certified Platinum by the RIAA within one year of its release. 

Halsey claimed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 with 2017’s Platinum-certified hopeless fountain kingdom, which contained such hits as the 2x Platinum “Now or Never” and the 4x Platinum “Bad at Love.”

The success of the 6x Platinum “Without Me” has made Halsey the first and only female artist to have at least three songs chart on the Billboard Hot 100 for 50 weeks each. Rounding out the trio of songs are the 4x Platinum “Eastside,” her collaboration with Benny Blanco and Khalid, and The Chainsmokers’ 11x Platinum “Closer,” which she featured on. “Without Me,” which took Favorite Song, Pop/Rock honors at the American Music Awards, spent two weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 in early 2019, marking her first solo single to reach the top spot. It now ranks as the longest-running Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hit by a female artist of this century. She is the first artist to rank at Nos. 1 and 2 simultaneously on Billboard’s Hot 100 Pop Songs radio airplay chart. In March 2019, Halsey became the first artist in history to replace herself at No. 1 twice on the U.S. Pop Songs Airplay chart when “Without Me” returned to No. 1, bumping “Eastside” from the top spot. “Without Me” was the most-played song of 2019 at U.S. radio. She featured on BTS’ Platinum hit, “Boy With Luv,” and, more recently, alongside Future on “Die for Me,” a track from Post Malone’s new album.

Halsey continues to push creative boundaries, expanding her influence and impact beyond music. After making her film debut in the animated 2018 summer movie Teen Titans GO! as the voice of Wonder Woman, she was seen in A Star is Born, starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. She continues to use her voice to speak up for causes she passionately believes in, including disenfranchised youth, women’s rights, mental health and the LGBTQ community. GLAAD honored her in 2018 as “Outstanding Music Artist.” In 2019, she has won an AMA, the Hal David Starlight Award, presented by the Songwriters Hall of Fame, a VMA and two Teen Choice Awards.

Yoshi Flower releases New Song and Video

Yoshi Flower comes back with the latest track “Validation”, out now on Rock Mafia/Interscope Records. Earlier this year Paper Magazine named Yoshi Flower as one of their 100 names worth getting to know in advance. Check out the video shot in Southern California, HERE

The up-tempo, electronic/trap tune begins with Yoshi delicately singing “you’re so beautiful to me, can’t you see,” however, the song is not as sweet as his voice sounds. His lyrics debate the constant feeling we seek out more than ever in the era of social media – “validation.” Although the internet allows us to easily connect with others and access endless information, the dark side can be unsettling. Yoshi goes on to sing “I just spent a ticket on these new dress clothes, you’re not impressed though…just searching for validation…” The nostalgic visual, directed by Alex McDonnell, serves as a metaphor for how everything comes full circle. We’re all on a constant ride of wanting acceptance from one another. Yoshi ends the track the way he began, singing, “but you don’t need no validation. Baby ‘cause, you’re so beautiful to me, can’t you see.”

Last year Yoshi Flower signed to Interscope Records, released his debut mixtape titled, American Raver, toured with blackbear, Elohim, SG Lewis and opened for Dua Lipa. This year, he played his first 5-city headline tour, a string of showcases at SXSW and just last week, wrapped up a sold-out tour opening for K-Rap group, Epik High. Additionally, he released “Dirty Water,” which premiered on HYPEBEAST and led to L’Officiel calling the track a “demonstrative of Flower’s ability to transcend multiple genres of music, as he continues to elevate his eclectic sound by blending hip hop with electronic-pop, creating music that is not only of the moment but is uniquely his.” Yoshi continues to work on new music and is set to play Lollapalooza in August.
