Rarin – Big Spendin

Fast-rising hip hop artist Rarin has released his new, unflinching single “Big Spendin’” from his upcoming debut mixtape Toxic Ends – out June 25. A trap continuation of his aspirational, ambition-fueled singles that focus on self-growth and not letting other people’s opinions or actions deter you from your own grind, “Big Spendin'” imagines Rarin as the best version of himself, free of heartbreak, self-consciousness, and hardship. Press here to listen.

“’Big Spendin’’ is a full on flexer song,” says Rarin on the track. “Although it talks about a lot of material things, ‘Big Spendin’’ is about ‘leveling up’ from my previous dark state to become the most polished version of myself. It stresses my current mindset and the bold, euphoric feeling of being excited for the future.”

Originally recording music for fun and continuing to create in his bedroom despite his success, Rarin has racked up over 75 million global streams with his string of viral singles including “GTA” and “YESSIR!” which topped Spotify’s viral charts and trended on YouTube. Adding to his hot streak, and distilling rap, pop, and relatable storytelling into his own unique sound, Toxic Ends will follow his recently released singles: deceptive flex anthems that speak to what is achievable in life if you free yourself from insecurity. Previous single “Toxics Ends” imagines what life would be like if we let go of the negative thoughts that hold us back while “SO WHAT! ft. Brxkenbxy” speaks to brushing off minor issues to find value in mistakes without letting them derail you from seizing big opportunities.

Impacted by the sudden loss of rapper Lil Peep and the realization that his own music is also a coping mechanism for many, Rarin puts human connection at the forefront of his art to guide his fans through their own emotional turmoil while processing his own world and sifting through the toxicity that often prevents us from being our best selves. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Lil Peep as well as Travis Scott and Billie EilishRarin’s singles have already received explosive support online, particularly amongst gaming communities such as Fortnite, to soundtrack thousands of videos and feature in large collaborations with creators such as Faze SwayFaze Martoz, and more. A first-generation American born to parents leaving communist Bulgaria, Rarin’s unshakeable work ethic saw him immerse himself in experiences and study classical piano for eight years before discovering rap in middle school.

2021 Eurovision Song Contest

Will there be a shock winner at the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest?

The Eurovision Song Contest is one of the most popular annual events that takes place across Europe. Over 180 million people tuned into the 2019 contest, which was won by the Netherlands. The final of the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest final takes place on 22nd May in Rotterdam, where thirty-nine countries will take part in the live-streamed musical event.

The current favorites to win in 2021

There are a few acts that will be confident of winning the final, with the Eurovision song contest odds placing Malta as 4/1 favorite to win, who will be represented by their act, Destiny. They have never won the contest before but have finished in 2nd place on two occasions. Despite being the favorites, Malta will have to navigate a semi-final before they reach the main stage.

The second favorites to win are France, who are at 5/1 odds. Unlike the predicted winners, France has won the contest on five occasions, however, they haven’t won it since 1977.  Switzerland, Italy, and Bulgaria will also perhaps all fancy their chances of winning this year as well.

Will 2021 see a shock winner?

The United Kingdom hasn’t seen a Eurovision winner since 1997 – on that occasion, Katrina and the Waves won with the song “Love, Shine a Light.” The UK’s representation in 2021 will be James Newman, a singer-songwriter who has had a successful career in the industry – though many bookmakers believe that he is unlikely to win. 

Ireland is also seen as huge outsiders to win, but they are actually the most successful country in Eurovision’s history. They have won the competition on seven occasions, with the last success coming in 1996.

A previous shock winner

The 2011 edition was won by Azerbaijan, and it was seen as a huge shock at the time.  This was their first success in the competition, having only entered for the first time four years previously.

How many times has the host nation won Eurovision?

The host nation of the final has won Eurovision on seven occasions. The last time this occurred was in 1994 when the competition was won by Ireland. Looking back towards the upcoming contest, the Netherlands are, however, seen as huge outsiders to win.

A further brief history of Eurovision winners

The first edition of the contest was held in 1956. On that occasion, it was won by Switzerland. In 1969, four countries won the contest, which was the first and only time in which there were joint winners, all garnering the same score from international judges and the public vote. The United Kingdom, Spain, the Netherlands, and France all came in first place that year.

A few years later, in 1974, ABBA won their contest, and the Swedish pop group would go on to become music icons. Their winning song “Waterloo” is still popular all over the world.

There are several other countries that are yet to taste success in Eurovision. This list includes Iceland, Lithuania, Belarus, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia. Will the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest see a first-time winner?

Monsieur Job Latest Album BASS PA$$I

Blending Latin Grooves with Pumping Electronica, The LP and Its Follow Up Remixes Album Are Bringing Familiar Blend of Urban Beats Mixed with New World Dance Grooves to New Heights with Lead Single & Video

“Chow Chow Eyyy Pow Pow” Feat. No Mercy

Bogota, Colombia (May, 2018) — With their imminent debut on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart this week, South American based Latin/Electronica group Monsieur Job are taking worldwide radio charts by storm with the release of their Single and Video “Chow Chow Eyyy Pow Pow” Feat. No Mercy off their latest BASS PA$$I album and remixes release BASS PA$$I 2 which dropped just last week via Basswalk Latino and Musik and Film!

WATCH: Monsieur Job feat. No Mercy – Chow Chow Eyyy Pow Pow (Official Video)

For their debut release, Monsieur Job’s fuse diverse talents by inviting artists such as; Marty of No Mercy, Kiño, Luis Carlos Toro, Alejandro Gomes Caceres, Sarah Sophia, Elemece, Thiago, Christian Gimenez, Vojke Djans, Diego Caceres, Oscar Moncada, Denis Dzigal, Cholo, Vick D, Mc Lions & Bingi, Kid Corrupt, Dave Floyd, Nacho Alvarez, Pablo Bendov and Aldo Cadiz therefore mixing a variation of many styles recreating genres like Reggaetón Electrónico, Dancehall, Reggae, Dub, Tropical House, Rock, Chill Out, Rap, Trap, Hip Hop, Worship, and Son Montuno involving Afro Cuban and African Succu rhythms.

“It makes some demands of the listener, but none they won’t be happy to oblige. The demands are centered on how artfully ‘Chow Chow eyyy Pow Pow’ upends expectations for pop music in this vein thanks to its strong musical pedigree and vocal presentation. The performance is unfailingly accessible, but there’s a real sophistication present in the song as well.The three and a half minute radio edit of this initial offering from the quartet is augmented by the presence of guest star Martin Cintron, lead singer for the band No Mercy, and the Bronx born vocalist is the added cherry on top of what will likely prove one of 2018’s more delectable musical confections” – No Depression

Monsieur job is an eclectic band formed by Toby Holguin from Cali, Colombia; Stan Kolev from Sofia, Bulgaria; Charlie Illera from Barranquilla, Colombia; and Leo Jaramillo from Bogota, Colombia.

All coming as live band performers, Toby, Stan, and Charlie also regularly spin records as DJs for different pools and venues around the world. Monsieur Job was born out of Toby’s idea to start doing Urban Music along with Chill Out and Electronic Music, which they were making for the album “Bass Passi.” They all agreed and started dropping broken beats with a more festive, shaky, groovy Caribbean Latin flavor resulting in Monsieur Job, an international exclusive mash up of world talents.

The album “BASS PA$$I” album was recorded in Bogota and Miami at Basswalk Studios, Outta Limits Studios in Miami, and Barba Studios in Belgrade and mastered at Sterling Studios, New York.
