Niall Horan × “No Judgement”

NIALL HORAN UNVEILS NEW VIDEO FOR “NO JUDGEMENT” FEATURING VIRAL DANCE SENSATION BOSS BABY BRODY AND HIS FAMILY

WATCH HERE

HEARTBREAK WEATHER, HORAN’S NEW ALBUM, IS OUT NOW

Boss Baby Brody – the four-year-old boy who went viral when his mom posted a clip of him dancing to “The Nutcracker” – takes on Niall Horan’s “No Judgement” in a new video, which premiered today. View HERE Brody, also known as “Tiny Dancer” and “Baby Fosse,” was named “Dancer of the Week” by The Radio City Rockettes and has earned praise from “Good Morning America,” and numerous other media outlets.

The joyful clip – directed by Kanya McMahon, who also helmed Horan’s “Heartbreak Weather” video – depicts an average day at the Schaffer family household. When Boss Baby Brody and his sister Dylan grow bored watching TV, they venture into their parents’ walk-in closet, where they find costumes and dance with abandon to Horan’s “No Judgement.” Soon mom Danielle and dad Bobby join in the fun. When brothers Jackson and Roman arrive home, it becomes a full-on family dance party.

The lyrics to “No Judgement” read like a family anthem to the Schaffer’s, who are longtime fans of Horan, and they felt inspired to offer up their take on the track. When you’re with me, no judgement You can get that from anyone else You don’t have to prove nothin’ You can just be yourself The original video for “No Judgement” celebrates the unconditional love between an elderly couple, with Horan serving as narrator. MTV News hailed it as “a quirky, charming, kinda gross love story.” View HERE.

“No Judgement,” which has already racked up 55 million combined streams worldwide, is from Horan’s new album, Heartbreak Weather, available HERE. Heartbreak Weather came in at No. 1 on the NPR “All Songs Considered” list of the week’s top 10 new albums. Newsweek said, “‘Nice to Meet Ya’ and ‘No Judgement’ are suave works of seduction…[while] ‘Put a Little Love on Me’ is a tender, piano-focused ballad.” Stereogum observed, “The Forecast Is Improving For Niall Horan.” American Songwriter noted, “Horan guns right for the eye of heartbreak’s storm…He feels the sting quite viscerally, yet instead of writhing around in his misery, he fashions his acoustic guitar in new smoldering settings or opts to dance it out into the wee hours of the morning.”

Queen Naija – Butterflies Pt. 2

Preserving unprecedented momentum from a breakthrough 2019, platinum-certified R&B singer and songwriter Queen Naija officially shares her new single “Butterflies Pt. 2” today. Get it HERE via Capitol Music Group. It stands out as the sequel to her recently platinum-certified 2018 single “Butterflies.”

It intercuts intimate real-life moments between Queen Naija and her boyfriend Clarence White. Cycling through actual Facetime chats and iPhone video, it seamlessly reflects the vulnerability of the track itself. Over acoustic guitar-laced minimal production by Rice N’ Peas [Kiana Ledé, Bazzi], emotion shines through the verses as she confesses, “I still get butterflies.”

“Butterflies Pt. 2” sets the stage for an even bigger 2020 as she readies her anxiously awaited full-length debut album for release very soon.

HRVY, 360 MAGAZINE, Capitol Music Group

HRVY – Me Because Of You

HRVY released his new single, “Me Because Of You,” and the accompanying video. The internationally renowned, Platinum-selling pop artist recorded the song in Oslo, Norway with producer Earwulf (Jason Derulo). HRVY co-wrote “Me Because Of You” with his fans in mind, crediting them for making him the artist he is today. Download / stream “Me Because Of You” HERE

The official video was helmed by filmmaker Matthias Hoene. In a nod to Hoene’s 2016 film, The Warriors Gate,  HRVY ducks into an antique shop to avoid being mugged and finds a glowing red orb that changes the direction of his life. It opens a portal to a world that, while futuristic, also evokes the joyous sense of adventure and belonging HRVY’s global travels have brought him. View “Me Because Of You” HERE.

“I’ve never felt more connected to music that I’ve created. The last couple of years have been a huge learning curve and have helped me write much more emotive songs as I’ve actually been able to experience real life events,” says HRVY. “This song is super important to me. It came from a fan’s comment on Instagram, which is mad to say that it’s now become its own song. I remember sitting on a plane on the way back from Asia and thinking of a way to represent this new music and new me. I drew a really terrible sketch on my phone of the world that me and my music lives in.“ 

Combined streams of HRVY’s songs now exceed one billion – with more than 250,000 streams in the U.S. alone – and he has 13 million followers across his socials. “Me Because Of You” is the follow-up to  “Million Ways.” Released in November 2019, the single amassed over one million global streams in its first week and four million video views in the first four days. Hailing “Million Ways” as “a synth-laden anthem,“ Wonderland said, “HRVY is undoubtedly one to watch.” A BBC Radio 1 Brit List artist, HRVY’s 2019 collaborations included “So Good” with Danna Paola, “I Miss Myself” with NOTD, “Don’t Need Your Love” with NCT Dream and “Younger” with Jonas Blue. His 2017 viral hit, “Personal,” has attained 12 global certifications, including Gold in the U.S. He visited over 23 countries and played to over 300,000 people last year across a European headline tour, supporting slot on The Vamps U.K. arena tour and festival performances.

Sam Smith – To Die For

On Friday, February 14, Capitol Records will release Sam Smith’s new single, “To Die For.” Opening with a sample from the 2001 cult film Donnie Darko, the new track pairs soaring strings and evocative piano with Smith’s distinctive vocals and the plaintive confession, “I just want somebody to die for.”

“Releasing this song is going to be a wild one – I feel like it’s from one of the deepest parts of me,” explains Sam Smith. “I wrote this with Jimmy Napes and Stargate in L.A. during a time of self-discovery and heartbreak. This is for all the lonely hearts out there on another Valentine’s Day xx.”

The global superstar’s previous collaboration with Napes and Stargate, 2017’s “Too Good At Goodbyes,” is certified 4x Platinum in the U.S. and has attained more than one billion streams on Spotify. “To Die For” follows Smith’s trio of 2019 releases – “How Do You Sleep,” which has amassed over 600 million streams worldwide, “I Feel Love,” a cover of Donna Summer’s disco classic and Smith’s collaboration with Normani, “Dancing with a Stranger,” which has sold more than 10 million units and racked up over two billion streams worldwide. A No. 1 airplay hit in the U.S. & U.K., “Dancing with a Stranger” achieved Platinum status in 19 countries, including the U.S., where it is certified 2x Platinum.

Since the release of their 2014 debut album, In The Lonely Hour, Sam Smith has sold over 25 million adjusted albums worldwide. They have won four GRAMMY Awards®, an Oscar, a Golden Globe and three BRIT Awards. Smith’s sophomore album, The Thrill Of It All, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 2017 and also topped the charts in the U.K, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands and Belgium. Rolling Stone awarded The Thrill Of It All four stars.

DUKE DUMONT – THERAPY

Multi-Platinum-selling record maker & DJ, Duke Dumont, has kicked off the year with new single “Therapy,” out now via Astralwerks. Stream the single HERE and watch the visualizer HERE.

A heart on sleeve, piano-driven vocal house record, “Therapy” injects an anthem upon ravers. The single follows Dumont’s “The Power,” a collaboration with Moroccan-English singer-songwriter Zak Abel that has clocked up over 35 million streams worldwide. 
Multi-Grammy-nominated Dumont has amassed over 2.5 billion streams across his back-catalogue of previous anthems, scoring platinum-selling UK #1 singles to timeless records such as ”Ocean Drive.” 

Duke embarked on a busy tour schedule during 2019, performing at internationally renowned festivals such as Creamfields, Ultra Korea, HARD Summer, Harbourlife and Field Day. As well as travelling across the globe, Dumont also linked up with fellow chart-topper MK for three US shows at the tail-end of the year, in Washington DC, San Francisco and New York. Looking ahead, Dumont has recently been announced to play at US premier festival Coachella 2020 as well as EDC Mexico in February. 

About Duke Dumont:
 
Hailing from Rayners Lane (NW London) now residing in Laurel Canyon (LA), Duke Dumont was initially born deaf.  With corrective surgery this directly shaped the way he interprets sounds, with tone and timbre taking precedence over linguistics, which inadvertently shaped his approach to record making.  Since then, Duke defied all odds and proved that his well-crafted productions either become viable hits or infectious club records, boasting billions of plays across the globe.

Topping the billing on various stages worldwide, with his DJ career starting in NW London, learning his craft at such iconic institutions as Fabric (London) to Panorama Bar (Berlin) and playing some of the biggest stages from Coachella (USA) , Exit (Serbia) to Splendor In The Grass (Australia).
 
He has since branched out to numerous residences in Ibiza (Amnesia & Sankeys) and Las Vegas where Duke shares his philosophy; “The goal isn’t for record sales, or attention-grabbing tactics. It’s for producing records with longevity and soul. If my records can out live me, i can die happy”

City Girls, rap, hip-hop, 360 MAGAZINE, Capitol Music Group, duo, Billboard Magazine

CITY GIRLS × BILLBOARD

City Girls have done things few female hip-hop duos or groups have managed, and as their momentum continues to rise Billboard magazine chose to recognize them as the face of what’s to break in 2020 as they continue their trail-blazing winning streak and reach new heights.

The duo, comprised of JT and Yung Miami, has become one of the most successful female hip-hop duos in the history of the Billboard charts. Racking up more than 1.3 BILLION streams, a pair of certified-Platinum Top 40 hits, becoming the #6 most played artist on urban radio (with singles “Twerk” and “Act Up” reaching #1 at Urban Radio), and raves from critics world-wide. City Girls will continue to dominate in 2020. They recently released “You Tried It” off their highly anticipated album which is coming soon.  

Ratchet, brilliant, and sometimes both at the same time and sometimes neither at all, these women are showing up and doing the work, wrote The New Yorker. The ascent of the City Girls is one of the most unlikely success stories of the past years, with JT sitting in federal prison in Tallahassee, Fl, turning herself in for fraud in July 2018, the same day Drake’s massive #1 smash “In My Feelings featuring the City Girls was released. Yung Miami held down the group: touring, performing festivals, the BET Awards mainstage and MTV Spring Break, Alexander Wang’s fashion week party, doing interviews and accepting awards as City Girls – and always with a shout-out to her best friend with a heartfelt “Free JT!”

These City Girls would not be derailed nor defeated. With the brash, raw, uncensored swagger rooted in the queens who came before them, the duo released music and videos they had banked knowing JT was turning herself in and kept rising and rising up the charts. The accolades and nominations piled up: 2019 BET Hip Hop Awards Nominations for “Best Hip Hop Video” + Single Of The Year”; 2019 BET Awards Nominations for “Best Group” + “Best New Artist”; BET Social Awards Nomination and Won “Issa Wave” Award; Nominated for Billboard Awards’ Best New Artist.

In September Yung Miami happily announced her pregnancy, showing the world what a working woman was capable of. In October, JT was freed, and the internet exploded, with City Girls holding eight of the top 25 trending topics on twitter – not just trending but trending under eight different topics! (#2 JT FREE; #6 JT HOME; #11 JT IS FREE; #15 JT IS HOME; #16 Caresha; #19 Yung Miami; #20 JT OUT; #23 SO JT). Never ones to rest, City Girls returned that same day with the hard-hitting “JT First Day Out;” The City Girls’ rapper takes aim at her opposition and makes sure they know City Girls are here to dominate hip-hop with the legal mess finally behind her. “Left prison with a pimple, not a scratch,” she raps. 

JT and Yung Miami are uncensored and unapologetic sharing a commitment to their hood roots and a bold insistence that the culture they come from shouldn’t stop them from getting a piece of the cash pie. One of the most provocative female hip-hop duos in years, JT and Yung Miami are trailblazers of the next generation of female who speak out as raw and confident — and with as much swagger as the boys and working twice as hard to be recognized.

Kevin “Coach K” Lee and Pierre “P” Thomas of the renowned Quality Control Music label discovered the girls and took their first song “Fu*k Dat N****” from a regional hit to a national smash when it appeared on the seminal Quality Control Presents: Control The Streets Vol 1 compilation.

EDEN – isohel

Vocalist/producer/multi-instrumentalist EDEN releases “isohel” today via all digital partners. “isohel” is the fourth track from his upcoming sophomore album – no future- out February 14th via Astralwerks. His wandering guitar work and gently devastating vocal performance channel the ache of reminiscence.  Download/Stream the track HERE.  A video for “isohel,” filmed in Kazakhstan and directed by EDEN’s frequent collaborators Zhang + Knight, was also released today. The visual features EDEN hitching a ride through a muted purple and gold-hued countryside. Watch it HERE.


“Isohel’s are lines on a weather map that connect all the areas that receive equal sunlight,” EDEN explains. “Light and sunlight have been an odd obsession for me since I was a teenager; I’ve always felt like I was moving toward some unreachable horizon. The song ‘isohel’ is about wishing the best for the people you’ve left behind but knowing that you’re probably better off where you are now.”


”isohel” follows the previously released album tracks, “untitled,” “projector” and “‘love, death, distraction’ which V Magazine deems, “a hauntingly beautiful slow jam that doubles as a reflection of our relationship with our phones, brought to life by the strums of a guitar and Ng’s euphonious ennui…As with everything he creates, EDEN’s thoughtful and methodical approach can be both seen and felt. His knack for succeeding at it is what all great artists should aspire to.”


On his new album, EDEN (Dublin-bred artist Jonathon Ng) takes an outward-looking perspective with the looming threat of the climate crisis informing much of his songwriting. But while its songs often return to themes of finality and loss, no future unfolds with an unlikely splendor that ultimately makes for a transcendent listening experience. As with all his music, no future was recorded and self-produced in EDEN’s home studio in Dublin.

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.

Young explains, “I wrote this song the day before my birthday. It is a song about many things all in one, and about being ‘too much for anyone.’ I think this video is a raw, honest interpretation of how I act and how I am before I get ready to perform.”

Available HERE, the seven-track Intro also includes “6 Feet Under” and “Blind Love.” An atmospheric, piano-driven song about pulling oneself out of depression, “6 Feet Under” was penned by Young and co-produced by Al Shux (Lana Del Rey, Kendrick Lamar, JAY-Z).

She began writing music at age 11. She won the 2015 Open Mic competition in the UK, beating over 9,000 acts with the original song “Never Enough.” Young is a recent graduate of the Brit School, whose alumni include Amy Winehouse, Adele, Freya Ridings, FKA Twigs, Jade Bird, Jessie J, Leona Lewis, Loyle Carner and Rex Orange County.
