Dreamer Boy – Crybaby

Dreamer Boy is back with more sweet nostalgia on his new single “Crybaby,” out today via slowplay/Caroline: LISTEN HERE. The track arrives alongside a trippy, retro-styled video inspired by David Bowie, George Harrison, and the tales of Dreamer Boy’s youth. It’s a glittery, technicolor fantasy that surrenders to the childlike freedom of hopping on a bike, jumping on a trampoline, and spinning in circles.

The single debuted this morning as an Apple Music 1 World First Premiere with Zane Lowe. “I just don’t see a future where many, many of us don’t absolutely fall in love with Dreamer Boy,” Zane Lowe said about the song. “I just think the music is so flawless.”

The visuals match the track’s misty psychedelia: WATCH HERE. “I’ve been holding them back when I’m feeling like that,” Dreamer Boy sings over a blurry swirl of guitars. “Crybaby” reveals the singer/songwriter at his most vulnerable. “This song is about friendships, courage, and love,” he says. “I wrote it after a psychedelic experience that led to an outpouring of emotions that were bottled up for a long time. This song is meant to be that release.”

Dreamer Boy’s Previous Accomplishments

This is Dreamer Boy’s second single this year, coming on the heels of “Know You” and its accompanying video, which featured clips submitted from fans and friends. He’s been building that following organically, hitting the road with the likes of Clairo, Omar Apollo, The Marias, Still Woozy, and more since introducing his “cowboy pop” in 2018. PAPER Magazine wrote that “Know You” is “a track with mesmerizing synths and an overwhelming feeling of nostalgia that will have you chasing after the feeling of not knowing someone, but wanting to.”

Dreamer Boy’s independent breakthrough, Love, Nostalgia, drew acclaim from Milk.xyz, Elevator Magazine, and OnesToWatch, who called it a “multi-dimensional narrative of summer romance and teenage dreams. A wavy time capsule that transports you from 90’s MC-808s to the woozy dream pop of 2019.” The album’s follow-up single, “Puppy Dog,” received praise from The FADER, and had Clash comparing its “blissful naivety” to Rex Orange County and its “choppy guitar” to Prince. The track has amassed 7 million streams and counting.

Stay tuned for more to come from Dreamer Boy.

Trippie Redd – I Got You × Busta Rhymes

Today, genre-bending rapper and singer Trippie Redd drops “I Got You” produced by Wheezy and featuring Busta Rhymes, out now via 10K Projects/Caroline. The single samples the iconic 2002 Busta Rhymes and Mariah Carey track “I Know What You Want” and features a guest verse from Busta Rhymes himself. Its accompanying music video, directed by Aidan Cullen, aligns with the single’s 2000s feel with Trippie Redd parading through high school in a varsity jacket that reads “Pegasus.”

LISTEN TO “I GOT YOU” HERE
WATCH THE MUSIC VIDEO HERE

One of the most versatile and creatively daring artists in hip-hop today, platinum-selling rapper, singer and songwriter Trippie Redd has landed four consecutive albums in the top 10 in just three years’ time. With the November 2019 release of A Love Letter To You 4—his first-ever album to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart—Trippie offered up his most dynamic body of work to date, delivering a 21-track effort that amassed over 125.9 million streams in its first week alone. With his penetrating lyrics and nuanced but hard-hitting vocal performance, the 21-year-old Ohio native continually defies genre boundaries, embedding his melodic take on rap with elements of rock-and-roll and heavy metal to ultimately create a sound that’s wildly experimental yet massively appealing.

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. 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 in 2017.

Since then, he has had a deep commitment to evolving his sound and to constantly create new music, but despite his desire to continually evolve, there are certain qualities that endure across all of Trippie’s music—most notably, his penchant for crafting songs that hit on a visceral level. “I like making timeless music,” says Trippie. “You’ve got to think of a timeless concept—love, hate, anger, sadness—all that shit is timeless. And if you can make something without it just meaning one thing, people can feel it and turn it into their own. That’s what makes it timeless.”

Aminé Drops “Riri” Video

Aminé drops co-directed music video for “Riri”

Portland-based rapper, artist, director, culture shaker and innovative ingenue Aminé delivers his video for “Riri” which he co-directed with longtime visual collaborator Jack Bergert. The video was filmed in quarantine around LA mansions with cameos from the likes of beloved sports broadcaster Taylor Rooks. Aminé even locked writer/comedian Jak Knight, from ABC’s Black-ish, for a closing skit in the “RiRi” video.

“We shot this video before the murder of George Floyd & my knowledge of the Breonna Taylor case,” Aminé writes “but I felt compelled to delay its release for obvious reasons. Activism is essential right now so I put my focus there for the past few weeks. We skipped editing sessions to march in the Black Lives Matter protests. I’m dropping the ‘Riri’ video today because it’s important to show black joy in a time where we’re constantly seeing imagery of pain and suffering.”

Pegged “one of the most creative voices in hip-hop, Aminé shakes the culture every time he releases a new song” (Hot New Hip Hop) and “Riri” is no different. Complex Magazine reportedly “wouldn’t be surpris[ed] if the real Rihanna was caught on Instagram enjoying the new tune.” Hypebeast cosigns that “the centerpiece of ‘Riri’ is Aminé’s soulful hook and reflective lyrics buoyed by bassrich production from frequent collaborator Pasqué.”

In addition to the excitement of the new music video, Aminé has also joined forces with former YEEZY designer Sara Jaramillo and Alice Wang’s ILYSM to offer a $500 grant this week for an artist impacted by COVID-19 shutdowns. Applications for this round of #ILYSM4Artists are due by noon EST on Thursday 6/25 at ILYSM.COM .

About Aminé:

Artists who move culture forward create their own. Aminé’s debut LP, “Good For You” did just that for Portland’s music scene, hiphop and the culture at large — buoyed by his 5x platinum RIAA certified breakout smash “Caroline,” “REDMERCEDES” and “Wedding Crashers” [feat. Offset]. The album which displayed mosaic influence from his parents’ Ethiopian heritage to trailblazers like Kanye West and André 3000, made an instantly indelible impact — scoring a RIAA gold certification, millions of singles streams, Spotify #1s, and 21 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 Songs Chart, peaking at #11. Aminé further solidified himself as a force of nature between explosive festival sets and show-stopping late nights. Maintaining this momentum, while owning his subdued profile and preference for an AirBNB wilderness cabin over a posh studio for recording, Aminé released his self-described 2018 EP/LP/MIXTAPE/ ALBUM “ONEPOINTFIVE.”

Earlier this year, Aminé continued on his promise to change perceptions and defy expectations with “Shimmy” paying homage to his past, while declaring 2020 as his. Accompanied by a co-directed music video love letter to Portland, the song garnered 20 Million streams globally and the gamut of fanfare which you can watch here. Continuing to expand his influence, Aminé also recently appeared on HBO’s Insecure this month.

boys, scaling a mountain, and driving a boat, as he praises the past

Marieme’s New Track: Tumblin

On her new original song, Tumblin, Marieme pairs a melodic, infectious groove with searing social observations to deliver a message that challenges us to make the most of our potential.

Download and stream “Tumblin” here!

Marieme’s upcoming Los Angeles performances include TASTE at Westfield Century City September 29th, and the Ace Hotel in October 18th. She will perform at the Kick4Life Gala at the Angel Orensanz in New York City on November 1st.

On hundred percent of the proceeds will provide educations to disadvantaged boys and girls in Lesotho, Southern Africa, supporting them to obtain scholarships at schools and colleges in the U.S.

Six months after Marieme was born in the African nation of Mauritania, war broke out between Mauritania and her parents’ native Senegal.

Forced to escape. Marieme and her siblings went to live with their aunt in Senegal while her parents moved to the U.S. It would be five years before her parents would be able to bring the rest of the family to their new home in the Bronx. In the States, Marieme initially learned English through the songs of artists like Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears and Destiny‘s Child.

On her soulful self-titled debut EP, released earlier this year, Marieme explores themes of identity, self-reliance and evolution. Shondaland praised the track “Be The Change” as the perfect reminder that women have the power to be the change and that we need to use it.” 

Blackbook hailed it as, “chillingly poignantand noted, “We couldn’t think of a better anthem to lead the protestors.

Dancing about Architecture says, “Marieme does that most rare of things, she makes pop that sounds both grown up and wonderfully infectious at the same time.”

Marieme recently discussed the relationship between self-acceptance and style and her experiences with colorism and bullying in a candid interview with StyleLikeU’s YouTube channel. 

Conversation With Coach K

On April 11th, UMUSIC Experience hosted a Masterclass – a conversation with Hip-Hop cultural icon Coach K, moderated by Spotify’s Artist & Label Marketing Manager Amber Grimes at the historic African-American Morehouse College. The event was held at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center to nearly 400 students.

Grimes asked a series of questions about manifestation, trust, adaptation and continuous progress.

Coach K immediately began dropping gems throughout the conversation. “Everything I do is applied to sports and every team needs a coach?” says the former all-state quarterback
football player and scholarship awarded basketball player Kevin Coach K”. Lee when discussing
his relationship with Quality Control, the label he shares with Pierre Pee Thomas.”

Together they run a record label and recording studio and manage artists Migos, Lil Yachty, Lil Baby,
Trippie Redd and many more.

When Grimes asked Coach K how he instills trust in his artist, he says “I let them dream. We let them be visionaries. We not coming to change anything. We just tighten the loose ends.”Coach K knows a great deal about helping artists become superstars by combining their talent
and work ethic while taking risks.”We built our whole company [by] taking risks! Sometimes you gotta take that risk.” Coach K also added that he focuses heavily on the artists’ brands. “ I also believe in brand-building and luck doesn’t come in brand building.”

Both Atlanta natives, Coach K and Amber Grimes were passionate about bringing this event to the historically black Atlanta University Center.

”I have been wanting to do this event for three years,” says Coach K.

“This is my first time doing something like this.”Coach K hopes he can use his life as masterclass to teach others how to become successful.”

There is no book that can teach you about this business. It’s on-job training. If I can let my story lead somebody’s path, I’m with it,” he says. “The day you come complacent is the day it stops. You have to keep going!”

UMUSIC Experience partnered with Quality Control Music, Motown, Capitol Music Group & Caroline to bring the masterclass to life.

Marieme releases ‘What’s Cool’

Marieme, the bold Senegalese artist who just released her self-titled debut EP via Caroline has contributed What’s Cool, a new original song, to the soundtrack for the forthcoming film I FEEL PRETTY. The track, which was released by Sony Masterworks, is available for download / streaming HERE, where the soundtrack can also be pre-ordered. View the What’s Cool video HERE. The film and accompanying soundtrack will be released on April 20.

Born amidst a war between the African nation of Mauritania and Senegal, Marieme’s unique upbringing shaped her into a brutally veracious artist with a captivating and socially-conscious voice. She will be performing at School Night at Bardot in Los Angeles on May 14.

Marieme caught the ear of the film’s music supervisor, Jason Markey, who thought her music, which explores themes of self-reliance, change, and evolution, would be a good fit for I Feel Pretty. Listen for What’s Cool during the dance party sequence, a key scene in the film.

Jason Markey says, Marieme’s song, What’s Cool is just one of those songs, when you hear it and see it to picture, it just works. I showed the song cut into the scene to Amy Schumer and she instantly told me, It’s perfect, don’t change a thing, and we didn’t.

I FEEL PRETTY, a woman who struggles with feelings of deep insecurity and low self-esteem, that hold her back every day, wakes from a brutal fall in an exercise class believing she is suddenly a supermodel. With this newfound confidence she is empowered to live her life fearlessly and flawlessly, but what will happen when she realizes her appearance never changed? View the trailer HERE
