The track is produced by OUTTATOWN, who has worked with Future, Young Thug and DaBaby.

Click here to watch.

The continuation of the storyline from the “Go Crazy” video, which has been viewed over 46 million times to date, the “Say You Love Me” video is the brainchild of Brown and his core team of creatives – Mat Fuller, Matt Goldstein and Jake Miosge. Developed over the course of two months, the video pushes the medium of animation and highlights the team’s affinity with sci-fi, animated TV/films and space. Collaborating with feature film animators, directors and content creators, Chris and his team have several projects slated for release in the future that will further cement the talent and creativity the world knows from him as an artist.

The video was written and directed by Mat Fuller with animation created by Dark Matter FX’s Joe Hobach (Game Of Thrones, Night At The Museum, Ghost Rider, King Kong, Sin City, Blade: Trinity, The Fast & the Furious), Eric Molina (Yahoo Sports, Super Bowl Live, NFL), and Tony Castro (Agents Of Shield, The Smurfs, Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows: Part 2, Bad Universe).

Slime & B has been streamed (audio and video) over 663 million times worldwide across all platforms since its May 5, 2020 release via RCA Records.

Doja Cat – Freak

Today, multi-platinum, chart topping rapper/singer/songwriter/producer Doja Cat officially releases “Freak” at all digital service providers via Kemosabe/RCA Records. The track, which Doja initially uploaded to her SoundCloud last year quickly became a viral sensation on TikTok with over 1.2 million original creations. With over 5 million streams on SoundCloud, she treats fans by releasing the full track across all platforms while she works on new music.

Earlier this week, Doja was announced as one of the first wave of performers for the VMAs which are set to air live on MTV on August 30th at 8pm EST/PST. Doja is also nominated for 3 awards: PUSH: Best New Artist “Song of the Year” for “Say So” and Best Direction for Hannah Lux Davis on “Say So.” The nominations mark Doja’s first major award show nods continuing her breakthrough year. Fans can vote HERE.

Born and raised in L.A., Doja Cat made her first upload to Soundcloud in 2013 at just 16-years-old. She developed a knack for music by studying piano and dance as a kid and listening to the likes of Busta Rhymes, Erykah Badu, Nicki Minaj, Drake, and more. Soon, she went from obsessing over Catwoman (the Halle Berry version) to “crate digging” on YouTube. The budding talent taught herself Logic and how to compose on a midi controller.

Signed to RCA during 2014, she has released her Purrr! EP followed with her debut album Amala in spring 2018, but it was her August 2018 release of “Mooo!” which catapulted her into the mainstream and was met with critical acclaim. With co-signs from Chance The Rapper, Katy Perry, Chris Brown and J.Cole among others.

2019 was a big year for Doja, proving she is a mainstay artist with the release of tracks like “Tia Tamera” ft. Rico Nasty and her breakout hit “Juicy” ft. Tyga which appears on her sophomore album Hot Pink, released in November. She made her late night debut performance of the track on Late Night with Seth Meyers. She was also named the iHeart Radio “On The Verge” artist, with “Juicy” reaching #1 on the Rhythm radio chart and top 10 at Urban. Hot Pink has received rave reviews in the press and continues to be recognized as her strongest work to date with nearly 2 billion streams and video views combined.

Live, Doja has played numerous festivals and live shows including Rap Caviar Live Miami, Posty Fest, Day n Vegas, Rolling Loud LA and will play Coachella, Rolling Loud Miami, Broccoli City Fest later this year.

2020 kicked off another amazing year for the hybrid artist with the success of her single “Say So” continuing to climb the charts. She has delivered electrifying performances of the track on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Voice and The Late Late Show with James Corden. The track is RIAA certified platinum, reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100,  #1 at Top 40 radio for 5 consecutive weeks, reached #1 at Rhythm radio, has over 180 million video views, and over 20 million Tik Tok videos created. The track has been streamed nearly 1 billion times worldwide. The follow up “Like That” ft. Gucci Mane is currently climbing the radio charts sitting inside the Top 20 at Top 40 radio and inside the Top 10 at Rhythm. Doja was also the first Vevo LIFT artist to be announced for 2020.

Gashi – Lies

Gashi releases his new track “Lies” today (listen here). “Lies” is the fourth track to be released from his upcoming sophomore album 1984 which is due out on RCA Records next Friday, August 7th. The 14-track 1984 album sees GASHI exploring and harboring new sounds that will bring you back to GASHI’s favorite time – the 80’s.

GASHI says of the album, “I wasn’t alive during that decade, but I connect so much with everything from that era. I love everything about 80s culture from the music to the films to the fashion and I always wished I could have experienced that time in history. My parents got married in 1984 and some of the greatest music ever made came from the 80s.  I just wanted to make music that made people feel the way I feel when I hear anything from that era.”

Jhené Aiko’s Chilombo Success

Jhené Aiko’s blockbuster album CHILOMBO re-asserts its claim to the title of R&B album of the year this week, as the deluxe edition powers the album to over 46,000 new units. CHILOMBO re-enters the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 at #6, and reclaims the #1 spot on the Billboard R&B albums chart.

CHILOMBO DELUXE adds nine previously unreleased bonus tracks and remixes to the original 20-track album – including the new single “Summer 2020” – with new guest features from Kehlani, Snoop Dogg, Chris Brown, Mila J and Wiz Khalifa. Check out the in-depth cover-story profile of Jhené in the new issue of HITS magazine.

Chilombo (released in March) entered the Billboard Top R&B Albums chart at #1, and the Billboard 200 album chart at #2.  Over 170 million first week streams ranked it as the biggest album debut in four years from a female R&B artist (since Beyoncé’s Lemonade in April 2016), and the biggest album debut of Jhené’s career.

Chilombo arrived on the strength of its five massive advance tracks, with cumulative streams over 700 million to date.  They comprise: “B.S.”  (featuring H.E.R.), “Triggered (Freestyle),” “None Of Your Concern” (featuring Big Sean), “Pu$$y Fairy (OTW),” and “Happiness Over Everything (H.O.E.)” (feat. Future and Miguel).  The visual for another album track premiered in May, “Magic Hour.” The momentum continues to build with the release of “Summer 2020.”

Chilombo proclaims the artist’s full name, Jhené Aiko Efuru Chilombo, as it celebrates her coming into her own personal power. The initial jam sessions where she freestyled the lyrics to each song, took place on  where Jhené’s great grandmother was born. Jhené was inspired by the beauty and power of the island’s volcanoes, having visited throughout the years. Chilombo means wild beast. The volcano is symbolic of the beautiful, yet powerful beast. Jhené Aiko is Chilombo. In contrast to her 2017 album, Trip, which intricately detailed the process of grieving, Chilombo finds Jhené embracing her strength and power, coming into her confidence as a woman, a creator and a healer. She has always embraced magic in her particular brand of soulful, trippy, ethereal R&B, but now on Chilombo she has taken it all to another level.

THE MAGIC HOUR, Jhené’s highly-anticipated 32-city North American tour with special guest Queen Naija, originally scheduled for May-June, will be rescheduled. Special merch and digital album bundles are available at Jhené’s official D2C store.

Pia Mia – Hot

Fresh off the TikTok resurgence of her smash hit “Do It Again,” which spawned more than 5 million videos created and 500 million views on TikTok, in addition to inspiring a dance challenge between Jimmy Fallon and Jennifer Lopez on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, platinum- certified recording artist and actress Pia Mia drops a brand new single entitled “Hot” today.

On the track, handclaps skate through skittering keys as the verses bounce into a steamy, slick, and sexy hook. Teetering back and forth between turn-of-the-century R&B and rapid-fire future pop, Pia Mia turns up the summer temperature as she urges, “You better make it real hot!” Be on the lookout for an equally seductive music video—set to premiere soon.

This past May, Pia Mia offered fans a preview of forthcoming music under her newly signed label deal with Electric Feel Entertainment and Republic Records with the release of “Princess”– read more here via Billboard.  Upon arrival, “Princess” earned early tastemaker praise, with PAPER claiming, “the star has returned with the bombastic, R&B-influenced pop track…”Princess is a fun and frisky club anthem.” Idolator declared it “An empowering banger…It’s catchy, upbeat and just a little outrageous,” while Atwood Magazine claimed, “her latest single “Princess” serves as a testament to her ability to create real party jams — with a deeper lyrical layer underneath.” The Honey Pot put it best by serving up “5 Reasons Why You Should Stan Pia Mia.”  Since it’s release, “Princess” has amassed over 3 million global streams and counting.

What’s more, Pia Mia has also released the first few chapters of her first fictional book, The Princess Diaries: Sand, Glitter, Silicone on Wattpad – the global entertainment company and world’s leading social storytelling platform. Pia Mia takes readers through the life of a young pop star named Princess as she navigates life, love, family, and fame. Each week, Pia Mia uploads a new chapter for the community, sharing stories from her heart, flashes of her life and her deepest fantasies. 

At just 23 years old, Pia Mia has cemented herself as a formidable star with a hand in multiple corners of entertainment. A critically acclaimed recording artist with hits like “Do It Again” which recently saw a resurgence on TikTok, and “Bitter Love” under her belt, Pia Mia is approaching 1 Billion streams worldwide; and has collaborated with everyone from Chris Brown and Tyga to YG. She made her acting debut in 2019’s award-winning feature film After, based on Anna Todd’s wildly popular YA book series. On the fashion front, Pia Mia’s unique sense of style has landed her in publications such as Vogue, Paper Magazine and Nylon; and has made her an enviable partner for such brands as Guess, Bebe and Macy’s Material Girl, the latter for which she was handpicked by Madonna to serve as the clothing line’s first-ever fashion director.

PIA MIA – Princess

Today, platinum-certified recording artist and actress Pia Mia returns with a brand new single entitled “Princess.”
 
Get it HERE via Electric Feel Entertainment and Republic Records.

This marks the very first release under her newly minted deal with Austin Rosen’s Electric Feel Entertainment (Post Malone, Louis Bell, Billy Walsh) and Republic Records—just announced via Billboard. Most importantly, it also kicks off what promises to be her biggest, boldest, and brightest era yet.  Newly represented by Founder and CEO of Q&A, Troy Carter, Pia Mia has assembled an all-star team behind her.

On “Princess,” her confident and charismatic delivery builds towards an unshakable hook sampling the 2007 Chris Brown classic “Kiss Kiss.”  A sexy, R&B-tinged dance-pop record, “Princess” reimagines the hit for 2020, with Pia’s female perspective & global pop sensibilities. “Princess” is laden with sassy, tongue-in-cheek lyrics, offering fans a preview of the modern-day anthems Pia Mia has in store. 

“I was in the car on a long drive to a friend’s house playing throwbacks when “Kiss Kiss” came on. I went directly into a studio session that night and made “Princess,”” says Pia. “It’s a fun, unifying record that’s empowering for women without alienating the guys. It brings us all together. Right now, the world is experiencing dark times, and so I really wanted to bring some light. My new music is strong, it’s sexy, it’s confident. It’s about having fun, embracing your sexuality and unapologetically being yourself.”
 
PAPER Magazine premiered a visualizer for “Princess” earlier today. The steamy video was shot via Facetime in quarantine. About the visual, the outlet declared, “the star has returned with the bombastic, R&B-influenced pop track. “Princess” is a fun and frisky club anthem”.
 
Watch the visualizer HERE. (Post & Share)
 
Pia Mia continues to pop up everywhere in 2020. Her platinum-selling 2015 anthem “Do It Again” [feat. Chris Brown & Tyga] recently rushed to the forefront of the culture again. Its resurgence began when Stranger Things star Noah Schnapp uploaded a Tik Tok create featuring his own choreography to the track. Already, it’s spawned over 5 million recreations, and accumulated hundreds of millions of combined views.
