Half Time Show Analytics x Talkwalker

SUPER BOWL LIV – Half Time Report – Social Media Says Shakira Stole the Show

As the Super Bowl rolls on, here is a look at the first half (and halftime) updated social media results from international Social Media Analytics Firm Talkwalker. These numbers were updated at 8:45 p.m. Sunday.

Shakira has 1.17 million mentions so far!

J-Lo has around 250,000. 

If mentions alone tell the story, Shakira stole the show, but Shakira does have a much more active fanbase on social media – more so than Lopez.

Others with big numbers, include:

Latin artist J-Balvin, who was also part of the halftime show, has 74,000 mentions

Bad Bunny with 145k mentions.

The first big joke of the halftime show on social was people comparing Bad Bunny’s outfit to Ali G’s. 

Pepsi Halftime Show had 186,000 mentions

Sentiment surrounding the halftime show was 44% positive, 6% negative (remaining 50% neutral), according to Talkwalker

Below is a heatmap around the halftime show conversation, with several important trends to note. OIf course it’s a huge topic of conversation across the country, like every year, but the conversation is just as heavy in Colombia, in Mexico City, Rio & Sao Paolo, and in Puerto Rico, due largely to the performers. Conversation is also popular in Britain – where the NFL is trying to grow the game.

Sturgill Simpson x North American Tour

Today, GRAMMY® Award winner Sturgill Simpson shares the music video for “A Good Look,” a standout track from his critically acclaimed fourth full-length album – available HERE via Elektra Records – and Netflix Original anime film of the same name, “SOUND & FURY.” Watch the “A Good Look” official music video HERE.

Featuring high-octane animated footage from the “SOUND & FURY” film, the visual captures the breakneck action, frenetic pace, and intensity of the artist’s immersive vision set to psychedelic disco breaks, ripping guitars, and stadium-size hooks. The video was directed by Simpson’s “SOUND & FURY” collaborator, founder of influential animation studio Kamikaze Douga, and sought-after filmmaker Jumpei Mizusaki.

Next up, Simpson kicks off his much-anticipated “Sturgill Simpson: A Good Look’n Tour” on February 21 in Birmingham, AL. Meeting widespread demand from audiences everywhere, it visits over 40 cities with two-night stands scheduled for Asheville, NC, Detroit, MI, Minneapolis, MN, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, CA, and Nashville, TN. Numerous dates have already sold out in advance. Presented by AEG Presents, the tour features special guest and acclaimed country breakout star Tyler Childers. Simpson has also partnered with CID Entertainment to offer travel packages with all net proceeds benefitting the Special Forces Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides immediate and ongoing support to the Special Forces community and their families. $1 from each ticket sold for the Sturgill Simpson: A Good Look’n Tour will also be donated to benefit the Special Forces Foundation.  Tickets and more information on the exclusive travel offers can be found HERE. Check out the confirmed itinerary below.

Anointed a critical favorite for its uncompromising scope, endless attitude, and flawless execution, “SOUND & FURY” closed out 2019 as a fixture on numerous year end lists, including those by Rolling Stone, Billboard, NPR, Vulture, Esquire, Noisey, and more. Simpson’s live performances and album have been met with fan and critical praise alike: 

“A PROUDLY REBELLIOUS RECORD.” – Los Angeles Times

“Sound and Fury begins much in the same way as Simpson’s recent live set: with AN EXPLORATORY PSYCH-BLUES JAM …As a guitarist, Simpson is uninterested in conventional guitar god shredding; his playing is CURIOUS, FLUID AND FULL OF WONDER.” – Rolling Stone

“…he can glide between synth-rock, glam, dancefloor-fillers; songwriting is king in his world. It doesn’t matter if he’s playing a dreamy campfire song or a two-minute instrumental stomper. Simpson is the one dictating his sound…” – Pitchfork

“Anyone who says guitar music is dead hasn’t listened to the new Sturgill Simpson record.” – Entertainment Weekly

“Sound & Fury is the best case for musicians using Netflix in wild ways…..THE YEAR’S MOST HYPNOTIZING LONGFORM MUSIC VIDEO.” – Indiewire

“The Sound & Fury closer is the BEST THING SIMPSON HAS EVER DONE …It’s hard to imagine any other rock ’n’ roll show achieving anything like the same visceral power.” – Billboard

“POWERHOUSE PERFORMANCE … Simpson was here, in a cozy punk club, seeking a real connection, making a real change in the world.” – The Washington Post

About Sturgill Simpson:

A true iconoclast, GRAMMY® Award-winning singer and songwriter Sturgill Simpson has quietly, yet irrevocably disrupted country, rock, and culture at large since his 2013 independent debut High Top Mountain. In 2014, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music garnered his first GRAMMY® Award nod and claimed spots on Rolling Stone’s “50 Best Albums of 2014” and NPR’s “50 Favorite Albums of 2014.” 2016 saw him reach a pivotal turning point on A Sailor’s Guide To Earth. It would be honored with the GRAMMY® Award for “Best Country Album.” Like only he can, Simpson threw the rulebook out the window and flipped everything upside down on 2019’s “SOUND & FURY.” Produced by Simpson, the bulk of the album was recorded primarily at the McGuire Motor Inn in Waterford, Michigan, with his bandmates Bobby Emmett, Chuck Bartels, Miles Miller, who all serve as co-producers along with GRAMMY nominee John Hill (Cage The Elephant, Portugal.The Man, Bleachers). It lived up to his pledge to deliver as “a sleazy, steamy rock n roll record” and was accompanied by a Netflix anime film of the same name, which merged American rock music with Japanese animation in a revolutionary new way. Last year, he also contributed “The Dead Don’t Die” as the original theme song for writer and director Jim Jamursch’s acclaimed The Dead Don’t Die film. Additionally, he remains committed to philanthropy supporting non-profit organizations such as the Special Forces Foundation.

Her 2015 debut album, BADLANDS, was certified Platinum by the RIAA within one year of its release.

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.

Illenium – Pechanga Arena

By Michelle Pisnoy × Vaughn Lowery

On December 6, 2019, Nick Miller, best known for his stage name Illenium, played Pechanga Arena in San Diego, California as a percentage of his “Ascend” Tour. From the visuals to the operation itself, Illenium put on a life-changing show.

Walking inside the sports stadium, there was a storm of people wearing Illenium’s baseball jerseys and if they weren’t wearing it, they were standing in line about to buy one. The floor seats were packed in with fans crying and waiting for Illenium to come on stage.

Finally, Illenium came out playing his guitar, with a flaming phoenix in the background, which added to the singularity of the performance. The production of the show was incredible. The performace had everything you could ask for, and more. From the pyrotechnics aspect of the show, where you could feel the rut from the very back of the room and the multiple co2 machine blasts all brought his album to life.

It was nifty to hear him play all of his tracks from “Ascend,” plus a few oldies, which made the crowd go wild and sing even louder than before. His sets kept a pure balance of explosive drops to melodic tunes, which brought fans to tears.

The grand finale of the show was epic, with “Good Things Fall Apart” being played and confetti shooting into the crowd and onto the set. Overall, the performance was not one to overlook.

They’re the party band that grew into a traveling circus, spawning their own annual event (Beach Goth) and growing an international fanbase, while releasing six studio records that trace a line from garage psych ballads to edgy radio pop. On their first three records – Are You In Or Out? (2009), Hot Tropics (2010), and Hung at Heart (2013) – The Growlers combined reverb-rich waves of vintage surf rock with the dark, slow-burn melancholy of outlaw country. Chinese Fountain (2014) introduced a new, disco-infused direction that saw them move away from their swampy roots and relocate to Los Angeles. The band teamed up with producer Julian Casablancas (and frontman of The Strokes) to make City Club (2016), infusing their sound with Casablancas’ angular melodies and speaker-popping mixes. 2018 brought Casual Acquaintances, a raw collection of City Club-era demos and outtakes that – even as b-sides – ranks with the band’s finest material. Between records they toured constantly, raising their status as icons of the Los Angeles music underground, capable of drawing arena-sized crowds for their hometown shows. On their latest, self-produced record Natural Affair (2019), The Growlers move their DIY aesthetic into an even sturdier, synthier, dancier sound, bolstered by Nielsen’s finest lyrics to date: social commentary, rhymes, and ruminations on the pleasures (and perils) of modern love.
