Y2K x BBNO$ – Wawawa

Artist/producer Y2K and rapper bbno$ have joined forces once again to release the addictive earworm “Wawawa”. Listen HERE and watch the video HERE.

Says Y2K, “Wawawa’ (nearly titled Lalala 2) is the next installment in a 3 part fantasy saga about a halfling who journeys across the world to a volcano to destroy an evil ring. Wawawa was written remotely due to the pandemic, not something that bbno$ and I have ever really done before. As a result the record ended up changing and evolving over the course of multiple sessions/notes spread out this summer and into fall. I’m stoked on the result, and I hope our listeners feel the same!”

Ari additionally notes, “Also I am dressed as a hot mom in the music vid.”

“Wawawa” is the first joint offering since the release of their 2X Platinum viral hit “Lalala” which peaked Top 5 on the Global Spotify Chart and was routinely in the Top 20 on Spotify’s U.S. chart; listen HERE. Y2K and bbno$ also released the high octane “Lalala Remix” featuring Grammy Award winner Enrique Iglesias and Multi-platinum, Grammy, Juno and Polaris Prize nominated singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen. Listen to “Lalala Remix” HERE.

bbno$ concludes, “Lalala or Wawawa, you have one to choose wrong answer you will die.”

Carly Rae Jepsen – It’s Not Christmas Till Somebody Cries

Listen to “It’s Not Christmas Till Somebody Cries” HERE

Pop dynamo Carly Rae Jepsen is bringing some much-needed Yuletide cheer a little early with her cheeky new song “It’s Not Christmas Till Somebody Cries,” out today on 604/Schoolboy/Interscope Records. The snappy, synthy jingle—which grapples with vegan boyfriends, political uncles, and grandpas on edibles—sees the Grammy-nominated star doing what she does best: finding the joy in every situation, even when tears are falling. “It’s Not Christmas Till Somebody Cries” is available now at all digital retailers.

Crafted with acclaimed songwriters and producers Benjamin Romans, CJ Baran, and James Flannigan, the disco-pop merriment of “It’s Not Christmas Till Somebody Cries” was a chance for Jepsen to embrace the good, the bad, and the ugly of her favorite time of the year. “I love the old fashioned movies and the family traditions and the excitement of gifting presents and decorating the tree and and and… my list is endless,” she says. “But each year the pressure to have the perfect Christmas always ends in tears. I call it Christmas versus expectation.”

“Christmas holiday is my favorite time of year. I love it,” says Jepsen.  “But so often emotions run high and expectation versus reality is something I’d like to shed some light on and hopefully some laughs too in the process. So if you are lucky enough to get to be with the ones that matter most to you this year- embrace it! And if things go south just remember, “the secret is to sing a little song to survive… that it’s not Christmas till somebody cries!”.

This is the Canadian artist’s second gift to fans this year. In May, she released Dedicated Side B, a sleek set of dance-pop pleasures filled with all the unbridled optimism Jepsen first displayed on her 2012 debut album Kiss. The album is a companion piece to 2019’s Dedicated, which features the buoyant singles “Party for One,” “Now That I Found You,” and the Jack Antonoff-produced “Want You in My Room”—all of which were named among the top songs of the year by outlets including Rolling Stone, Billboard, Stereogum, and Pitchfork.

Carly Rae Jepsen’s pristine, prismatic pop has long been the blissful soundtrack for first kisses and swirling romances, but the multi-platinum Grammy, Juno and Polaris Prize nominated Canadian star’s knack for distilling a sea of emotions into brilliant songcraft has wooed critics as deeply as fans. The singer, songwriter, and actress first burst onto the international scene in 2012 with the sly and sublime “Call Me Maybe.” That blockbuster hit from her breakthrough album, Kiss, topped charts in over 47 countries, sold over 20 million singles, and was certified Diamond in the U.S. It also earned her two Grammy nominations for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year. Since then, she’s amassed even more acclaim across the music spectrum. On her 2015 synth-pop stunner E*MO*TION, Jepsen collaborated with Sia, Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes, and Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend), expanding her sonic palette with shimmery synths and euphoric dance beats that channel the sugary rush of new flirtations. Noisey declared it the pop album of the year, while the beaming single “I Really Like You” went platinum. Her 2019 follow-up, Dedicated, covered even more musical and emotional ground, as our most hopeful romantic continued to chase her bliss through a breakup. The Atlantic called the album “brilliant” with its “godlike bops.” Jepsen returned again in May 2020 with a gift for her fans: Dedicated Side B, a buoyant set of dance-floor candy that affirmed her status as pop’s undefeatable ambassador of love.

Carly Rae Jepsen – Me And The Boys In The Band

Carly Rae Jepsen releases a tribute to her love of travel with the boys in the band!

“On the road. That was the life. I miss travel and performing and my band mates who over the years have become my adopted brothers,” says Carly Rae Jepsen. “Through romantic relationships good and bad I have always found myself again in the late-night conversations with my band. Here’s to all the shows we have played and have yet to play. The late-night dancers we turn into on the long bus drives and the tourists we become in the early mornings. Here’s to nostalgia city and keeping close the ones that know you best. Can’t wait for more. Till then a from home “pick me up” song from all of us to you. Me and the boys and the band! Big thanks to Jack Antonoff, Tavish Crowe, Jared Manerika and Nik Pesut for making this jam come together from a distance.”

Watch the video clip for “Me And The Boys In The Band” HERE.

Later this month Jepsen will throw a karaoke party to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of her critically acclaimed album E*MO*TION.  Jepsen asked her fans to send in videos of themselves singing and dancing to their favorite E*MO*TION track. Tune in to YouTube on August 27th at 6pm ET to join Carly for a special celebration!

Gwyn Love Never Have To See You Again

Oklahoma born pop singer-songwriter Gwyn Love unveils her debut single “never have to see u again” via Canadian indie label 604 Records. The label, who is home to Canada’s biggest acts such as Carly Rae Jepsen, Dallas Smith and Marianas Trench, marks their first American signee with Gwyn.

As a huge fan of Canadian pop-rockers Marianas Trench, Gwyn reached out to 604 Records President Jonathan Simkin, asking about an interview for a school project. After mentioning she was a musician herself, he asked her to send along a demo. A few months later, he signed her to his label. Growing up in small-town Oklahoma, Gwyn Love knew she was destined for something bigger. Now, as the first-ever American artist signed to 604 Records — she’s ready to take on the world. Drawing mainly from her own life experience, Gwyn maintains she’s hardly ever at a loss for words when it comes to songwriting — musical motivation and vision are always priority one. Her debut single “never have to see you again,” which premiered via CelebSecrets, speaks to just that. It’s a song the artist says she believes becomes more powerful each and every time she hears it — an anthem that constantly re-ignites the happiest of moments when everything in her life really started to come together. It’s a kind of honest lyricism that is sure to set Gwyn apart from the pack.

Carly Rae Jepsen

Multi-platinum Grammy, Juno and Polaris Prize nominated singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen today releases a unique version of fan favorite track “The Sound”, from her recent fourth album, Dedicated, via Schoolboy/Interscope Records.
Recorded and filmed live in Lapland, Finland – with the support of House of Lapland, Finnair and Visit Finland – “The Sound (Live in Lapland, Finland)” sees Carly and her band strip back the song’s more electronic elements and replace them with organic, more tranquil, instrumentation. In what is a rare moment for an artist, both audio and video were recorded fully outdoors – and the accompanying performance video captures the picturesque setting of the record, on a remote lakeside jetty in Lapland’s Ruka-Kuusamo region. 


“The Sound (Live in Lapland, Finland)” is available now at all digital retailers. Watch the performance HERE.


Says Carly of Lapland: “Nature is a part of my childhood and my very best memories. Here in Lapland I’ve been amazed by how the quiet space allows for ideas to float into my head. It has been unlike anything I have ever experienced.”


Having just played more than 40 shows, including multiple sold out shows in New York and Los Angeles, upcoming behind the scenes footage from the Lapland experience shows Carly and her band taking a moment to relax, while partaking in some of Lapland’s more traditional pastimes. Perhaps best known as “the home of Santa Claus”, it also showcases a different side to Lapland, including the striking “midnight sun.”


Carly is currently in the middle of her Asian tour run and next heads to Australia and New Zealand, for her first ever headline shows in those countries.
