Set To Launch Blockbuster Music Video From Three Perspectives On Each Artist’s Facebook Page
Watch The First Visual Exclusively On Julia Michaels’ Facebook Here
Three of the hottest artists in the world, KHEA, Julia Michaels, and Becky G, have united for a joint single entitled Only One featuring Di Genius. Get it HERE via This Is M Records/Interscope Records.
This blockbuster collaboration embodies the intersection of genres and cultures on one instantly irresistible bilingual anthem with Argentine trap phenom KHEA, Mexican-American global superstar Becky G, and Southern California-raised Grammy nominated, multi-platinum singer and songwriter Julia Michaels. It all happens over a laid-back guitar-laden beat from Grammy winning Jamaican producer Di Genius (Drake, Shakira). Read about how the song came together on Rolling Stone, HERE.
This one of a kind effort required an equally massive rollout, so (instead of just one) three music videos will accompany the track. Directed by NAVS and produced by Compostela Films & Arts, the visuals depict a high-octane escape from a futuristic prison shot at the real-life Mira Loma Detention Center in Lancaster, CA (previously used by I.C.E.). In order to tell the story, the artists star in their own respective narratives. Additionally, Di Genius makes a very special cameo, becoming a catalyst for the big break…
The first video, told from Julia’s point-of-view, just premiered exclusively on her Facebook Page. Watch it HERE. The second drops on Becky G’s Facebook Page on July 22nd. The final video premieres on KHEA’s Facebook Page and all video platforms on July 29th.

Troye Sivan released “Dance To This” featuring Ariana Grande – a track from his forthcoming album, Bloom. The song is today’s Apple World Record. Listen for Zane Lowe’s interview with Troye on Beats 1 today at 10:00 AM PT. Download/stream “Dance To This” HERE and view the visualizer HERE.
Sivan said, “‘Dance To This’ is about that moment when you feel like you’ve been to enough house parties or events, and staying home and like, making out in the kitchen and cooking dinner sounds like a much, much better alternative.”
Bloom, which will be released by Capitol Records on August 31, is now available for pre-order everywhere. Fans who pre-order the digital album will instantly receive “Dance To This” plus the singles “Bloom” and “My My My!”
USA Today said, “One of the most intriguing young talents of his generation is Troye Sivan, whose track My My My! is one of 2018’s best singles.” Naming it one of the Best Songs of 2018 (So Far), Billboard noted that while Troye’s earlier singles “suggested a teenage artist prepping for the leap to greatness…‘My My My!’ evidences an adult who’s already there, brimming with confidence from the first chopped-up synth moan.” Combined global streams of “My My My!” are approaching 200 million. Views of the official video have surpassed 30 million.
NYLON said, “It’s Troye Sivan’s year. If this past January’s ‘My My My!’ single cemented him as a budding gay icon, his latest release, ‘Bloom,’ is his grand flowering.” #Bloom was the #1 worldwide trend on Twitter the night of the track’s release. Rolling Stone praised the “glamorous, gender-bending video,” which can be seen HERE.
Tickets for The Bloom Tour are on sale now at LiveNation.com and TroyeSivan.com. Multiple dates are already sold out and a second show has been added in San Francisco. The North American headline run, which kicks off on September 21, will include Troye’s first-ever show at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall (October 9) and performances at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles (October 30) and The Masonic in San Francisco (November 1 and 2). See below for itinerary. All tickets for the North American dates will include a CD copy of Bloom.
Troye supported his 2015 debut album, Blue Neighbourhood (Capitol Records) with two sold-out North American tours. Blue Neighbourhood, which topped the iTunes charts in 66 countries, has sold more than 2.5 million adjusted albums worldwide and is certified Gold in the U.S. Streams across all platforms exceed 2.5 billion while video views have topped 500 million. The single “Youth” claimed the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hot Club Play chart and has been certified Platinum in the U.S. Troye has appeared on the covers of Rolling Stone, Out, V Magazine and, most recently, The New York Times’ Sunday Arts & Leisure section. His numerous awards include a Billboard Music Awards trophy and two GLAAD Media wins.

Signed to SB Projects/Interscope Records, a joint venture between Scooter Braun’s SB Projects and Interscope, Social House features creatives Michael “Mikey” Foster and Charles “Scootie” Anderson who have written and produced songs for prominent artists ranging from Ariana Grande to the recent Jennifer Lopez track “Dinero Ft. DJ Khaled & Cardi B.” Produced by Mikey and Scootie, “Magic In The Hamptons Ft. Lil Yachty” also features production by multi-platinum producer Tommy Brown.
When the duo first moved to Los Angeles, Mikey and Scootie spent weeks couch surfing, finding themselves among other scrappy yet determined artists, in a highly social and creative environment that became their fraternity, family, party spot, studio and home. During a session at home, Mikey and Scootie decided to, for the first time, create a track for themselves. In that moment, Social House was born.
Social House has produced songs that range from a dark, urban feel to more upbeat rhythmic-pop, with their creative lifestyle shining through the feel-good character of their music that explores the diverse influences in their innovative production style.

Ebenezer releases visual for “Stats” featuring Col3trane, lifted from debut EP Bad Romantic. The video premiered earlier today via Complex UK, the video sees Ebenezer and Col3trane drenched in moody lighting weaving through secret corridors and London backdrops as the song unfolds.
“My good friend Dir.Lx and I had so much fun making this. Can’t wait for you to hear more of what’s to come,” speaks Ebenezer.
Bad Romantic grips you from first listen and is a project that warrants multiple playbacks, truly showcasing his own signature UK rap aesthetic. An ode to real romance, the EP jumps from energetic deeper trap sounds on tracks like “Till I Die” and “Catch Feelings” and transitions to slower vibes with more emotive tracks like “South of France” and “Nostalgia,” overall rounding this project off as a stunning first EP from Ebenezer.
In a few short years Ebenezer has worked with the likes of Rejjie Snow, Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign and Craig David. With a string of successful tracks released last year such as “F**K IT,” “Survival” and “Cliché,” Ebenezer is carving his own unique path – one of emotionally tinged R&B with hints of trap, completely void of the usual pretence that’s flooded the genre. In a way, it could be described as conscious turn-up music, but without a holier than thou message. The project sets Ebenezer apart from everyone else, as someone from London with a story to tell.
Born in Homerton, Ebenezer spent most of his childhood at a cousin’s house in Hackney along with his brother and sister. While his mother was busy holding down three jobs, Ebenezer and his brother spent most of their free time listening to music, watching MTV Base and learning to produce.
