Migos – Culture III

Migos  (Quavo, Offset and Takeoff) proudly present their anticipated new album, Culture III out now via Quality Control Music/Motown Records. It is available on their official store with a limited Gallery Dept. capsule collection. Get it HERE.

The anxiously awaited third installment serves as the finale of the blockbuster Culture trilogy. As a knockout climax, it spotlights their nimble ad-libs, bulletproof bars, head-spinning hooks, and irreplaceable chemistry. Not to mention, it’s stacked with A-list co-stars, including Drake, Cardi B, Justin Bieber, Future, Polo G, Youngboy NBA the late Juice WRLD and Pop Smoke to name a few. They celebrate the release with the music video for “Modern Day.” Between the jet-skis, rare automobiles, private planes, and smoke, Migos trade equally high-octane rhymes in this luxurious big screen-worthy visual. Watch it HERE.

They’ve taken over the game with one major move after another this week in support of the album. After setting social media on fire with the tracklisting and artwork reveal, they graced the stage of NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon for a performance of the new record “Avalanche.”

Dressed to the nines in black suits complete with black fedoras and shades in the music video, they deliver a smooth and slick rendition of the tune accompanied by a full band, uplifting this anthem with horns, live drums, and guitar solos.

Today, they will throw the ultimate PORTL party with the Migos Culture III Hologram. They’re set to host the hologram appearance simultaneously at 6pm ET via PORTL at select locations in Atlanta, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Miami. 

Last month, they paved the way for the album with “Straightenin.” It has already racked up north of 52 million worldwide streams and 21+ million views on the music video. Plus, it holds the #5 spot on Spotify’s Rap Caviar and popped off as “#1 Most Added at Urban Radio. Meanwhile, its predecessor, “Need It” [feat. YoungBoy Never Broke Again], has amassed 94.3 million Spotify streams and 56 million YouTube views on the music video. 

Culture stands tall in the pantheon of great hip-hop series. The original platinum-selling Culture bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 in 2017 and garnered two 2018 GRAMMY nominations, including “Best Rap Album” and “Best Rap Performance” for the Billboard Hot 100 #1 “Bad & Boujiee” [feat. Lil Uzi Vert]. On its heels, Culture II elevated Migos to rarified air. It capture #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and pick up a double-platinum plaque. To date, they have gathered 25 billion streams and 68 billion YouTube views. 

The internet and the game have been begging for Culture III for three years, and now Migos have delivered.

The culture belongs to them.

Ski Mask Cover Art via WMA Agency

12AM × Jutes – Ski Mask

Prolific storyteller 12AM has enlisted Canadian R&B artist Jutes for his latest single “Ski Mask” out now via Sony Music Canada.

The hard-hitting track encompasses infectiously melodic vocals escorted by 12AM’s ability to captivate audiences with his storytelling prowess. With lyrics outlining love and what can be put on the line to keep it, “Ski Mask” is one of many chapters to come.

“Me and Jutes have been wanting to put out a song for so long together but we had to have the right one.. we made a couple records here and there but once I freestyled the hook for ‘Ski Mask’ we both knew this was the one. He laid his verse down and bodied it and it made me step my game up on my verse,” explains 12AM.

“Ski Mask” arrives as a follow up to “come over” and “Voices” whose success resulted in early rotation on Apple Radio 1, premieres with Travis Mills and media coverage from cultural tastemaker Lyrical Lemonade, among others. Adding to mainstream radio and media coverage, praise for upcoming releases can be seen on social media from artists such as Travis Barker, Tyla Yaweh, and Elijah Woods.

Los Angeles-based, Ottawa native Matthew Dubois, better known as 12AM, is an emerging alternative R&B singer stemming from the ever-expanding Canadian music scene. Earning love from streaming platforms and radio alike, 12AM’s releases have landed consistent debuts on new music playlists in the US and Canada, garnering early support in rotation on Apple Music 1 Radio which led to premieres with Travis Mills for “love dies” and “come over.” Notably 12AM boasts over 15 million streams with 6 million of those branching from viral tracks: “Voices” and “come over.”

No stranger to media coverage and acclaim from tastemakers, praise can be seen coming from industry key players such as Lyrical Lemonade who said “12AM has been having a massive year without being able to tour, the Canadian [and LA-based] artist has an innate ability to craft big choruses which is why more and more artists are tapping in to use his melodic talents.”

A prolific storyteller, 12AM consistently writes for other artists as well as himself. 12AM can be seen frequently working with Elijah Woods and Omer Fedi (Kid Laroi “Without You”), (24kGoldn & Iann Dior “Mood”) and (Lil Nas X “Montero”) also regularly working with producers Midi Jones, Bizness Boi, and NGHT NGHT. Apart from writing and making music, 12AM has an extensive touring background, in his most recent run touring North America with Souly Had, 12AM completed over 30 show dates on a single tour amassing sold out venues in Salt Lake City and Toronto. Touring accolades include dates with Internet Money, Iann Dior, Jez Dior, 24kGoldn, Jutes, and Trevor Daniel. A one-of-a-kind artist, 12AM’s passion and pain shine through his music-making and unique narrative ability.

With highly anticipated upcoming releases with Travis Barker, Jutes, and Pyrex, paired with the heavy hitting management team of Tes Siyoum (Tyla Yaweh) and Alec Strasmore (ex-Post Malone), 12AM is creating the pathway for a summer 2021 takeover. 12AM’s repertoire is only at its inception, the future looks incredibly bright for the multifaceted and highly talented singer.

Adore Me × Bebe Rexha Capsule Collection

Adore Me has never been a celebrity-driven brand but when the opportunity to work with Bebe Rexha was presented, they knew they couldn’t pass it up. Bebe has always been a powerful voice on body positivity and inclusivity – the themes most near and dear to Adore Me’s heart.

But the timing really matters to us, too, says Assiya Assanbayeva who is a content strategist for Adore Me. As we head into a summer where America’s re-opening, we’re excited that we have someone like Bebe Rexha to spread the message that it’s okay to celebrate and have fun. As a lingerie brand, making our customers feel happy, confident, and sexy is at the core of what we do – and after everything we’ve collectively been through, we truly hope we can spread some joy to our customers with this collection.

The collaboration was built around products that are unafraid to be sexy and playful, like both Bebe Rexha and Adore Me. Just like Bebe Rexha crosses genres from pop to country to rap to rock, Adore Me has always been driven to serve all styles of lingerie to all types of customers of all sizes. We hope the collection reflects this. Who better than a lingerie brand and an inspiring musician to help us through a hot vax summer. 

You can read more about the partnership and see the launch video here.

Onika Unlined

Pretty in pink! Made of recycled nylon lace, Onika has the best of both worlds: sexy and cute. This sheer plunging bodysuit features statement cut-outs with gold-ring hardware, a G-string back, and also has adjustable straps and removable cups. 

Fun fact: for her first lingerie photoshoot, Bebe Rexha wore this bodysuit before the photoshoot to get her feeling more comfortable, and as Bebe told WWD, Bebe Rexha is discussing her lingerie. Her current favorite is the Onika bodysuit.

Margaritte Unlined

Feel like a rockstar! This push-up balconette bra is all about lace and attention to detail. Margaritte features sexy cleavage with intricate details, gold-ring hardware, and removable pads. Plus, it is made from recycled nylon lace and comes with a matching bikini and cheeky panty. 

Fun bra-fit fact: With Margaritte bra on, you won’t have to worry about a wardrobe malfunction. The wings of this longline bra are wide enough to help secure the bra around the body and avoid it flipping up. The trick here is the support coming from the top back elastic, while the bottom elastic is made a little softer to not dig into the skin.

Ambrey

Ambrey is perfect for layering or wearing on its own. Made of custom lace in a botanical motif, this dark green bodysuit features a high-cut leg line and a thong back for a smooth and seamless feel.  

Spotted: a little triple dart detail on the sides of the lace cups makes sure the bodysuit fits comfortably around the bust. Plus, it’s sewn with soft threads, so it doesn’t rub against the most sensitive area.

Avara Unlined

Bustiers are a big trend of 2021, and Avara is the first cropped bustier we’ve ever made. While this underwire black lace bustier’s floral details evoke a sense of boudoir chic, the pleated-side mesh panels add it some extra edge. Avara comes with a matching high-leg cheeky panty for a full jaw-dropping look.

Fun bustier-fit fact: front and side boning add extra support to the bustier, while mesh panels allow a bit of stretch for more comfortable wear.

QUIN NFN AND LIL2Z “BACK AND BETTER” from Hannah Haines for use by 360 Magazine

QUIN NFN × LIL2Z – BACK AND BETTER

Today, Austin, Texas rapper Quin NFN releases his latest single “Back And Better,” featuring Lil 2Z, available now via 10K Projects. Following the success of their YouTube hit “Sewed Up,” released in April 2020, which has amassed over 11M streams and counting, Quin NFN and Lil 2Z’s “Back And Better” acts as a reunion for the two rising stars and a surprise treat for fans. 

The first song Quin ever made was a remix of a track by Chicago’s teenage drill rapper Lil Mouse. The song earned him a local buzz in his neighborhood and Austin at large, as the city began to take notice of the then-15-year-old who was just beginning to make noise. His momentum only grew when he released the video for “Gametime Pt. 2,” a track that finds Quin at his most aggressive, and promoted the clip on the SayCheese platform. Quin stayed consistent while maneuvering the pitfalls of Austin’s small scene and, a year later, he shared a snippet of the song that would change his life. Within days, the video for “Talkin’ My Shit,” a bass-heavy dose of Quin’s charisma and swagger, went viral, and his promise to his mom became a guarantee.

After signing with Elliot Grange’s 10K Projects in 2019, Quin released his debut album 4NUN, with features from PnB Rock and NLE Choppa. The project, which has garnered over 115 million U.S. streams since its release, found Quin challenging himself to push his rowdy sound further. But his latest project QUINCHO, out March 27, is a full-on showcase of his impressive versatility. Though he makes sure to still deliver turn-up anthems, like the rambunctious single “Ok Cool,” Quin also leans into his melodic bag to deliver catchy tracks like “All Blue.”

Despite all his success, Quin still lives in Austin, where he can be near his mom and where he’s most comfortable. He wants to be an example of how to handle growing rap fame for those that come after him in Austin, something he had to learn largely on his own. “I don’t really feel like I had a chance to look back and reflect on everything yet,” he says. Given how quickly he blew up, Quin says he’s now focused on mastering his craft. “There’s still a whole lot of stuff I’m learning and trying to perfect,” he says. “But I get better every time I go to the studio.”

GRYFFIN × KYLE REYNOLDS - “BEST IS YET TO COME” from Noelle Accardi from Interscope Records for use by 360 magazine

GRYFFIN × KYLE REYNOLDS – “BEST IS YET TO COME”

L.A.-based artist/producer Gryffin has just unveiled a new single entitled “Best Is Yet To Come” with buzzing California singer Kyle Reynolds. Released via Darkroom/Interscope Records, Gryffin once again crafts the ultimate summer anthem with an engaging electronic soundscape heightened by Kyle’s soaring delivery and powerful hooks. The track and accompanying video showcase the promise of an endless summer as the world comes back to life. “Best Is Yet To Come” is available now via all digital retailers, watch the video here or listen here.

Earlier this year, Gryffin teamed up with Two Feet for single “I Want Love” which thus far has generated over 9.5 million Spotify streams and garnered critical acclaim. EDM praised, “This idyllic track showcases a balanced blend of seemingly juxtaposing styles.” Additionally, his 2019 anthem “Tie Me Down” with Elley Duhé has surged in popularity once more. Exploding on TikTok, it has recently inspired over nearly 3 million videos in the past month alone. To date, it has amassed nearly a quarter-of-a-billion streams and views. Gryffin also recently announced the first dates for his return to Las Vegas for a 2021 Wynn residency, tickets now on-sale here.

On the meaning behind the track, Gryffin says “Best Is Yet To Come is a song about not knowing or being able to predict the future, but being hopeful and optimistic that better days are on the horizon.”

Be on the lookout for more music from Gryffin soon!

“I Want Love” followed Safe With Me”, featuring rising star Audrey Mika, and “Cry,” a collaboration with Swedish singer/songwriter John Martin hailed by EDM.com as a “scintillating future pop record that tugs at the heartstrings.” In addition, Gryffin’s recent output includes “Hold You Tonight,” a breathtaking collaboration with platinum-selling country artist Chris Lane. Premiering in April, the acoustic-guitar-laced track marked Gryffin’s first new music since the release of Gravity — a widely acclaimed album including hits like “Remember” ft. ZOHARA (a track that shot to #1 on Dance radio), “OMG” (a #16 hit on the US Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, featuring Grammy Award-nominated singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen), and “Body Back” ft. Maia Wright (#16 hit on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart). With its incredible lineup of collaborators and guest artists, Gravity also features “Hurt People” (a collaboration with singer/songwriter Aloe Blacc, co-written by Bastille frontman Dan Smith) and “Baggage” by Gryffin with Gorgon City ft. AlunaGeorge (praised by Dancing Astronaut as a “perfectly poignant and danceable requiem to the summer season”).

Known for his kinetic fusion of dance-pop and future bass, Gryffin recently earned RIAA gold certification for “All You Need to Know” with SLANDER ft. Calle Lehmann — a 2019 release that’s now surpassed 100 million streams. The chart-climbing single appears on Gryffin’s debut album Gravity, which hit #1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Albums chart soon after arriving in October 2019.

ABOUT GRYFFIN

Born Dan Griffith, Gryffin got his start in music as a classically trained pianist and guitarist and also played in several bands. After receiving an electrical engineering degree from the University of Southern California, he pursued a path in music production, drawing equally from his carefully honed musicality and edgy ingenuity. Gryffin made his breakthrough in 2016 with two singles showcasing his melodic take on dance music: “Heading Home” ft. Josef Salvat (which shot to #1 on Spotify’s US and Global Viral charts) and the Bipolar Sunshine collaboration “Whole Heart.” In addition, his 2017 smash single “Feel Good” — with Illenium and featuring Daya— peaked at #18 on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay charts. Gryffin’s major triumphs also include “Tie Me Down” ft. Elley Duhé (which hit #2 on the Spotify US Viral Chart and #9 on the Global Viral Chart), “Remember” ft. Zohara (which garnered 6.5 million streams in its first few weeks and earned support from Tiesto, who featured the track on an Instagram story), and “All You Need to Know” with SLANDER ft. Calle Lehmann (a gold-certified smash that’s now surpassed 100 million streams). Arriving in October 2019, Gryffin’s debut album Gravity quickly climbed to #1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Albums chart.

Quavo × Lids Atlanta Braves Hat Release

Rapper Quavo has partnered with Lids to design his first, limited-edition Atlanta Braves hat. 

This exclusive, special edition cap infuses the Braves’ 1995 World Series win over the Cleveland Indians. Featuring unique, Atlanta-inspired patches, it also has a vintage-inspired 1995 World Series patch on the front of the cap, iced out with a frost-like finish. One of Quavo’s favorite features of a fitted cap growing up were the patches, which served as inspiration during the designing process. The hat, an homage to the historic city and his hometown, includes special details such as the Braves’ red and gold logo, a white embroidered A for Atlanta, a gold World Series embroidered trophy, as well as a Quavo Huncho inspired patch. The patches and design of the hat are very obviously inspired by Lord Fubu’s hats, which Quavo has notably been wearing all year and even shouted on Complex today.  

This is the first product release from Quavo and Lids after he first partnered with the retailer in late 2019, joining their roster of partners alongside Meek Mill, Melvin Gordon III, Trevor Bauer, Chris Brickley, and Paper Planes. 

This one-of-a-kind cap is only arriving in select Lids stores in Georgia (listed below) and limited quantities online at Lids.com starting this Friday, June 4. Quavo also wore the hat over the weekend at Game 3 of the Hawks/Knicks series, posting an image to his Instagram.

Jonas Blue × Léon – Hear Me Say

JONAS BLUE AND LÉON RELEASE EUPHORIC HOUSE SINGLE HEAR ME SAY, Tickets On Sale Now for Summer DJ residency at Resorts World in Las Vegas, Listen to Hear Me Say HERE

Multi-platinum producer and songwriter Jonas Blue is back today with the euphoric Hear Me Say, a dizzying house track with rising Swedish pop star Léon. Built around anthemic vocals and caffeinated drum rushes, the single arrives right on time, at the cusp of a summer of packed dancefloors, sweaty festivals, and breezy days in the company of friends. Listen here via Astralwerks and view the lyric video here.

Hear Me Say is a hands-in-the-air house track, designed to soundtrack reckless abandon. Neon synth programming gilds Léon’s affecting vocal, magnifying the depths of the emotion. Jonas’ production is detailed but tasteful, nodding both to the fizzy history of rave music and sleek classic house tracks. As Léon sings of romance lost and found, the track builds to a buoyant climax, underscoring one of dance music’s great promises. No matter how you’re feeling when you get to the club, you can always dance through the pain.

Hear Me Say is about a relationship that seemed perfect but the couple drifted apart somewhere along the way, Jonas explains. They will always love each other, and will cherish the memories they created, but it was just not meant to be. It’s about having a voice, and people hearing your voice. It’s about expressing your feelings and not holding back what you want to say.

I’m so happy that this song is finally coming out, Léon adds. It came from a very honest place and I think we all felt how special it was the day we wrote it. I love that it turned out to be a song that you want to dance to, how Jonas made it feel so uplifting and powerful with his production on top of it. It almost has this 90’s feel to it. Can’t wait to see how people feel about it!

This new single is just the latest in a long string of uplifting dance anthems for Jonas Blue. Hear Me Say follows March’s Something Stupid with R&B singer AWA, which also received a stylish video from world-renowned filmmaker and photographer Rankin. These new singles have only further established Jonas as a global dance-pop powerhouse. Thanks to tracks like his beloved Perfect Strangers, he’s been certified platinum over 120 times across the world, attained over 13 billion streams, and sold over 60 million singles. These numbers put him in rarified air, even in the realms of pop music, but they wouldn’t mean anything without tasteful, infectious singles like Hear Me Say to back it up.

Soon after the release of Hear Me Say, Jonas is also plotting a return to live shows. He’s set to perform a sold-out show at London’s Ministry of Sound on June 25. Later this summer, he’ll begin a DJ residency at Resorts World Las Vegas. In partnership with Zouk Group, the first shows are set to take place on July 30 and Aug 13 at AYU DAYCLUB. Tickets are available now. This busy schedule, like Hear Me Say, is proof of Jonas’ continued innovation and attention to detail. Even though he’s on top of the world, he’s still pushing himself with every track and making people dance along the way.

About Jonas Blue

Jonas Blue’s career has been felt the world over with singles like Fast Car, Perfect Strangers, Rise, Mama and Polaroid collectively having been certified platinum over 120 times around the globe. With over 13 billion global streams and over 60 million singles sales to date, Jonas has cemented his name as a main stage DJ and pop powerhouse.

2018 was a landmark year. He released Rise featuring Jack & Jack, which was one of the summer’s biggest global hits, and owned the autumn with Polaroid – his highly anticipated collab with Liam Payne and Lennon Stella. The success of both hits was sandwiched between Back & Forth with Becky Hill and Detroit house legend, MK. Debut album Blue soon followed, the recipient of the Brit Certified Breakthrough Award and later gold status.

Jonas has made his mark on Ibiza, having performed at hotspots Ushuaia, Cafe Mambo and has successfully hosted his Electronic Nature residency at superclub Ibiza. As we see a return to live performances in 2021, Jonas will be joining Tiesto and Zedd as a resident DJ at Zouk in Las Vegas.

Following on from hits Mistakes and Naked in 2020, Something Stupid featuring AWA kicked off his 2021 in style, smashing its way into homes worldwide as Jonas continues to inspire, uplift, and spread his message of global positivity.

About Léon

Léon released her self-titled album in 2019, after earning a cult-following since her 2015 debut single. The critically acclaimed Swedish artist has consistently delivered with every project, demonstrating her knack for crafting emotive, tender, and unforgettable pop songs. Having amassed over 600 million global streams to date, she is a regular critics’ favorite in the press, racking up praise from the likes of Vogue, Glamour, In-Style, The FADER, and more. In addition to making her late-night television debut on The Late Late Show with James Corden, she has sold out headline shows worldwide and performed at U.S. festival staples including Coachella, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza.

Nikki Jam/El Alfa illustration by Heather Skovlund for 360 Magazine

Nicky Jam × El Alfa – Pikete

Latin music pioneer Nicky Jam releases a new musical collaboration with the “master” of the Dominican Dembow El Alfa. Together, both Latin-music superstars give life to “Pikete”, a song that promises to become the new summer anthem and is now available on all digital platforms. You can watch the music video HERE

“Pikete” tells the story of a woman who seems unattainable because of her beauty and attitude. The song was born from the composition of its interpreters Nicky Jam and El Alfa, along with Slow Mike, Luis A O´neill, and Juan Diego Medina Vélez, under the record label La Industria inc. The song premiers with its official video, directed by the pioneer of urban genre music videos Jessy Terrero, with the production house Cinema Giants. 

It is not the first time that Nicky Jam and El Alfa have collaborated. Songs such as “Nadie como tú” “Segueta remix” and “A Correr Los Lakers” have united them at a professional level, however, the last interview that Nicky Jam made with El Alfa, through his own talk show, “The Rockstar Show,” generated more than 3 million views on YouTube, and their fans asked to see them together again.

About Nicky Jam

Nicky Jam’s rise and fall story is the story of his genre itself: great fame, hard times and artistic rebirth. As one of the founders of the Urban Latin movement, Nicky Jam began recording music at the age of 11. As a young adult, he quickly rose to the top of his genre creating some of the biggest hits of the early urban movement in the 90’s. Just as he was starting to enjoy his hard-earned accomplishments, his life took a 180-degree turn and he decided to move to Colombia to rebuild his career. After being out of the limelight for 10 years, he released his album Fenix in 2017. The album is now certified Diamond in the U.S. by the RIAA. It contains the biggest singles of his career which are all Multi-Platinum certified: “El Amante,” “El Perdón,” and “Hasta El Amanecer.” 

In 2018, he returned with his first new single titled “X”. The single is a duet with his longtime friend and colleague, J Balvin. This will be a landmark year for Nicky, as he will be releasing his next album.

Tesher × Jason Derulo – Jalebi Baby

BOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD DUO TESHER X JASON DERULO RELEASE REIMAGINED JALEBI BABY, View Visualizer Video HERE, Combined Global Streams Of Jalebi Baby Surpass 100 Million, Tesher Signs Worldwide Deal With Capitol Records In Partnership With Universal Music India

Canadian-Indian rapper/producer Tesher and award-winning singer/songwriter Jason Derulo team up to reimagine Tesher’s global hit, Jalebi Baby. Listen here and view the accompanying visualizer video here.

My goal has always been to bring cultures together and create music that anyone can enjoy, regardless of language or background, said Tesher. Seeing ‘Jalebi Baby’ find listeners all over the world has been amazing, as has seeing big Billboard hits that donߣt neatly fit into one genre or aren’t completely in English. It just shows that people are not only open to hearing new and unique sounds, they crave them.

Jalebi Baby, which riffs on the classic South Asian dessert jalebi, was originally released in 2020. With its incredibly catchy chorus, effortless blend of English and Punjabi lyrics and Latin-flavored production, the song quickly became a viral sensation, topping the Shazam charts in 25+ countries and inspiring millions of videos across social media platforms. Jalebi Baby has amassed over 100 million combined global streams to date.

Tesher recently signed a new worldwide deal with Capitol Records in partnership with Universal Music India. This agreement will see Tesher’s music released through a unique partnership between Capitol Records in the U.S. and Universal Music India, who will focus on building his rapidly expanding popularity across India, South Asia and throughout its vast diaspora, whilst finding new fans around the world. In recent years, Universal Music India has led the Indian music market in the expansion of the non-film music, and hip-hop in India, challenging the dominance of Bollywood music on the charts and accelerating the growth of original artists and music within the domestic Indian music market and beyond.

About Tesher

Tesher, a multilingual rapper, singer-songwriter, producer and mixing engineer is bringing South Asian influences to the global soundscape in ways never heard before. His Canadian upbringing and Indian heritage have led him to create genre-defying and energetic music that resonates with audiences beyond his dual identity. Following in the footsteps of K-Pop and Latin acts before him, Tesher authentically bridges the gap between the cultures – owning the narrative and his South Asian identity through his innovative music.

After years of independently uploading his music to YouTube and Soundcloud, Tesher earned widespread recognition for his remix of Lil Nas X’s Old Town Road ft. Billy Ray Cyrus. The remix, which sampled music and lyrics from AR Rahman’s Bollywood hit Ramta Jogi, became a hit on social media and grew Tesher’s online profile. Tesher’s Young Shahrukh, an original hip-hop song inspired by Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, continued Tesher’s string of viral hits and was his first to reach #1 on the BBC Asian Music Chart following its release in 2020.

Standing at the forefront of the globalization of music, Tesher equally belongs to both the East and the West. His career skyrocketed in 2020 when he added his own vocals to his remix of Justin Bieber’s Yummy.After his vocals blew up on TikTok and Instagram, Tesher found fans begging him to create an independent solo record. With that vote of confidence, he was inspired to create Jalebi Baby. The song has since become a viral sensation, hitting #1 on the Shazam charts in 20+ countries and amassing more than 100 million combined global streams.

About Jason Derulo

Forward-thinking, genre-defying, and massively creative, Jason Derulo has staked his claim as one of the most dynamic forces on the global pop landscape. Since breaking through with his five-times-platinum single Whatcha Say, the award-winning singer/songwriter has sold more than 200 million records worldwide. His latest triumphs include emerging as one of TikTok’s most influential users, boasting the 11th overall biggest account on the video-sharing platform, prevailing as the fourth-most-followed male, and regularly amassing over five million views per TikTok post. Now at work on his highly anticipated fifth album and full-length debut for Atlantic Records, Derulo recently delivered a series of smash singles while operating as an independent artist. Those tracks include the wildly catchy Lifestyle feat. Adam Levine, Take You Dancing (a pandemic-era love song that’s inspired over a half-million videos on TikTok), and the double-platinum Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat), a collaboration with New Zealand-based producer Jawsh 685 that hit No. 1 on Top 40 radio, with its official BTS remix reaching the top slot on Billboard’s Hot 100. A truly multidimensional creator, Derulo has also established himself as an actor and businessman, investing in enterprises like Catch L.A. and Rumble Boxing and becoming part-owner of Bedlam Vodka. With his most recent ventures including launching an innovation-minded podcast and developing a line of supplements and fitness products with the Najafi Group and BodyBuilding.com, he’s also partnered with Z2 Comics to create a graphic novel, a project based on a superhero called Uzo, the crime-fighting character he first introduced on TikTok.
