CLAIRO’S NEW ALBUM SLING DEBUTS AT #1

Clairo’s critically acclaimed sophomore album Sling, released on July 16th via FADER Label/Republic Records, debuted at #1 on Billboard Alternative Albums Chart, #2 on Top Rock Albums Chart, and Top 20 on Top 200 Chart. This is the highest album charting debut for the 22-year-old American artist, songwriter, and producer. Listen to Sling here.

Co-produced with Grammy® Award winning producer Jack Antonoff, Sling was recorded at Allaire Studios in Upstate New York and features 12-tracks including “Blouse,” which the 22-year-old performed live on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last month. Watch the breath-taking performance here.

In celebration of the widely adored record, Clairo recently announced her 2022 headlining North American tour dates, which are quickly selling out. Tickets are on sale now at here.

Praised for her diary-worthy stories earmarked by her devilishly sharp commentary and angelically intimate vocals. The singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer has quietly threaded these stories into the fabric of popular culture since she first surfaced as a phenomenon out of her dorm bedroom. Following the success of her 2018 debut, Diary 001 EP, Clairo unveiled her 2019 full-length debut album, Immunity (FADER Label). The now 22-year-old received critical acclaim from the likes of Billboard, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, NME, NPR, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and many more. Beyond performing on TV shows like Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, and most recently The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, she has notably sold out headline tours as well as joined the bills of Coachella and Lollapalooza. Her growing catalog includes the platinum-certified “Pretty Girl” and gold-certified “4Ever” and “Flaming Hot Cheetos,” in addition to “Are You Bored Yet?”—her platinum collaboration with Wallows. To date, she has amassed over 3 billion streams and counting. In 2021, she turns the page on the next chapter with her highly anticipated sophomore album, Slingout everywhere now.

Becky Hill x David Guetta New Single Remember

Becky Hill released her new single Remember in partnership with David Guetta.

Today, show-stopping UK vocalist and songwriter Becky Hill released her brand new single Remember, a collaboration with the legendary David Guetta. Remember, which is co-written by Becky Hill and co-produced by David Guetta, is the most recent single to be lifted from Becky’s upcoming debut studio album out this summer.

“My whole career has built up to this moment!” says Becky. “I have a sure-fire single with David Guetta, and an album I’ve spent my whole adult life making is finally coming out. I’ve grafted and strived to reach this milestone for a few years now, and my patience has definitely been tested! But it’s definitely been worth the wait, as my creativity and vision for the album has now come to full fruition. It’s been an honour to collaborate with David Guetta on this release too. I feel so proud of the work I’ve created, and so thankful for the team around me who’ve stuck by me throughout this process. To the first of many, and to a very bright future ahead!”

David Guetta says, “Becky is becoming one of the very rare queens of dance music. She has an incredible voice and it felt so good to go back to house music for this record.”

Remember follows the release of Becky’s Better Off Without You ft Shift K3Y, (which is certified Platinum in the UK after accumulating over 600,000 sales), Heaven On My Mind, (which has accumulated over 65 million streams and is now certified Gold in the UK), and the recently released UK Top 40 hit, Last Time.

Becky Hill’s debut studio album will follow Get To Know, a collection of 13 singles Becky either released herself or wrote and guest performed on. Get To Know is now certified Gold in the UK after being confirmed by Official Charts as one of 2020’s top 5 most streamed albums by a female artist in the UK and peaking at No.16 on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Albums Chart in the US.

With an irrefutable aptitude for writing chart-smashing pop songs and a reputation as a pioneer in the electronic music scene, Becky Hill is one of Britain’s most in-demand musical exports of the moment. She has over 180 songs registered with ASCAP – no mean feat considering only 17% of PRS for Music’s registered songwriters are female – and an impressive string of hits to her name.  Having written and performed on twelve singles which charted in the top 40 of the UK Official Singles Chart, (including two top 10 singles, one number 1, and nine platinum records), Becky has now amassed over 2 billion streams on Spotify alone, and 1 billion streams in the UK. She has over 14 million monthly listeners on Spotify after being crowned the 2nd most-streamed British Female Solo Artist on Spotify UK in both 2019 and 2020.
