Little Mix – Break Up Song

The new era of Little Mix begins today with the release of their new single “Break Up Song.”

Listen HERE and watch the lyric video HERE

Written by Little Mix’s own Jade, Perrie and Leigh-Anne with Kamille, Frank Nobel and Linus Nordstrom, “Break Up Song” is an anthem about getting over a relationship, featuring an indelible melody and swirling 80’s synths, all wrapped up in another of the band’s trademark stunning vocal performances.

Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall have established themselves as the world’s biggest girl band – they have sold over 50 million records worldwide, collected over 17 million Spotify listeners, received over 3 billion YouTube views, and collated 12 billion streams worldwide. 
2019 witnessed Little Mix win their second Brit Award – this time for Best British Video for “Woman Like Me,” and perform the same song live at the Brits. They also won two Global Awards for Best Group and Best Song, followed by their 4th EMA Award for Best UK & Ireland Act.

This year Little Mix launched a brand new TV series for BBC One, Little Mix The Search. The series, made by ModestTV, will see the band creating bands and becoming mentors to a new wave of talent. The singers who make it into new bands will live together and gain access to Little Mix’s inner circle who have contributed to their phenomenal success, including vocal coaches, songwriters, producers and stylists.

This summer Little Mix will be going on tour playing at stadiums across the UK in June and July, including a massive headline show at London’s iconic Hyde Park for British Summertime on July 6.

Rising artist UNFITS on their first single “Satisfy Me” and working with legendary producer Emily Haynie

The music industry is a fickle beast. There are so many bands that spend years on the touring circuit pushing to build a fanbase, without ever seeing success. And then, on the other hand, there are some artists that hit it out of the park on their first up at bat, thanks to a combination of talent, ambition, and a myriad other factor that can be difficult to pin down. 

UNFITS are a band that seem destined for overnight success. Led by vocalist El Sueño and collaborator Eric Scullin – both of whom have written and recorded with artists like RZA (Wu Tang Clan) and the legendary emcee Royce da 5’9 — the band has been on a wild trajectory over the past few months, amassing a major following nearly overnight thanks to the success of their first single “Satisfy Me.” Recorded by Grammy winning producer Emily Haynie — known for his work with Kanye West, Lana Del Rey, Eminem, Kid Cudi, and Lady Gaga — “Satisfy Me” has already received more than 1.2 million streams and will be featured on the band’s debut album, slated for release later this year. 

Listen to “Satisfy Me” by UNFITS on Spotify – https://open.spotify.com/artist/3OOBfhRysJwpfrT8TmSxQV?si=q4_lAsVhSkKKTNO1aamZYQ

We spoke with El Sueño about the band’s rise to success, the new single “Satisfy Me,” and the upcoming music video for the song, which was shot in 7 countries around the world with a cast of social media celebrities like The Real Tarzann and Jay Alvarrez.

360 Magazine: Tell us a little bit about your background. When did you start writing music?

El Sueño: I started writing music when I was 10 years old on acoustic guitar and piano…mostly inspired by Bob Dylan and The Clash.

360 Magazine: You’ve already worked with some impressive artists during your career. What was it like collaborating with RZA? Did seeing his process inform how you work?

El Sueño: Hearing RZA tell us stories about New York City’s five boroughs, getting shot at, and ultimately using the power of music as his way out resonated deeply. Music is sometimes more than just an artistic medium, it’s a redemption. RZA’s process deeply affected our creativity and fearlessness about being artists.

360 Magazine: We love “Satisfy Me.” Can you tell us a little bit about the song? What was it like working with Emile Haynie?

El Sueño: “Satisfy me” is how I felt after visiting 50 countries, and feeling like I had seen everything in excess, but still searching for something to be satiated.

I wrote the song while drinking tequila in the back of a tour bus in less than 10 minutes and recorded it on my iPhone. It somehow found its way to Emile Haynie, who called me and asked me to meet him at Charlie Chaplin’s old studio to produce the song. At first when I heard Emile Haynie wanted to work on it I thought it was a prank. He had produced two of my favorite artists of all time (Lana Del Rey and Kanye West). It was like the Beethoven of pop and culture calling to work. Incredibly honored and grateful to be able to learn from him and work on new music now.

360 Magazine: You shot the music video for “Satisfy Me” in seven countries around the world. What was the shoot like? Can you tell us anything about the video?

El Sueño: I love film and am inspired by Ridley Scott and Christopher Nolan. So I decided to take a stab at directing the music video. Nothing could have prepared us for going  with the team into war zones in Ukraine, and shark infested waters in Moorea. I think this is the first music video where we actually had a real strong chance of actually dying while we were shooting it.

360 Magazine: How did you connect with The Real Tarzann and Jay Alvarrez?

El Sueño: I met the Real Tarzann and Jay Alvarrez in Bora Bora for Saving The Reefs. We hit it off and have become close friends, and we’re now shooting a reality show.

360 Magazine: You have just released your first single with The UNFITS. What are your aspirations and plans for 2020?

El Sueño: I want to take music fans on a musical journey through our upcoming album and live on the road. All I want to do in life is connect with other people and share the redemption I found in music with the world.

360 Magazine: Is there anything else you would like our readers to know?

El Sueño: Don’t be a little glitch.

Nick Jonas, Jonas Brothers, 360 MAGAZINE

JONAS BROTHERS COMEBACK

After mounting the biggest comeback of the decade last year, GRAMMY® Award-nominated trio Jonas Brothers release their first new single of 2020, “What A Man Gotta Do,” today. Get it HERE via Republic Records.
 
“What A Man Gotta Do” charges forward on upbeat acoustic guitar and a percussive groove. This high-energy bounce culminates on the hook where they coyly ask, “What a man gotta do to be totally locked up by you?” Continuing a tradition of event-level visuals, the group also reveals a blockbuster music video co-starring their significant others: Priyanka Chopra Jones, Sophie Turner, and Danielle Jonas. Directed by Joseph Kahn, the band and the ladies put their own smart, satirical, spirited and sexy twist on classic films such as Risky Business, Grease, and Say Anything.
 
Watch it HERE
 
The broadcast premiere for the video will air on MTV Live, mtvU and the Times Square Viacom billboard at 6AM EST today.
 
Jonas Brothers will pull out all the stops next Sunday January 26 when they perform “What A Man Gotta Do” live for the very first time at the 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards® in Los Angeles. Plus, they vie for the “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance” statue at the ceremony.
 
Be sure to tune in to the broadcast on CBS.
 
The song arrives hot on the heels of the band’s blockbuster comeback album, Happiness Begins. Not only did it bow at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, go platinum, and set the stage for the sold out Happiness Begins Tour across arenas everywhere, but it also yielded the Hot 100 #1 smash “Sucker,” which proved definitive for 2019. Most importantly, it set the stage for the biggest, boldest, and brightest era of Jonas Brothers yet.
 
Be on the lookout for more surprises and big news very soon.

The preeminent male group of this century, Jonas Brothers opened the floodgates for a new era of titans in pop music. Following a six-year hiatus, Jonas Brothers took 2019 by storm with the surprise release of their critically acclaimed and widely successful single “Sucker.” The double-platinum single debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100, becoming the first #1 for the band and the first #1 debut from a group this century.  The song emerged as a cultural phenomenon, ranking #1 on Billboard’s critic’s picks list of the “50 Best Songs of 2019,” and standing out as the top song on U.S. Radio in 2019, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. 
 
Making history once more, the band delivered their third #1 album debut with the release of their platinum-selling album Happiness Begins. The band continued to soar with their sold-out “Happiness Begins Tour,” with over 1 million tickets sold.  The tour received unanimous praise with Billboard writing, “The ‘Happiness Begins’ Tour feels like a celebration of everything in the Jonas Brothers’ career, but also the beginning of their larger-than-life new chapter,” and The Washington Post claiming, “There hasn’t been a boy band in recent history that’s made a comeback quite like Jonas Brothers.” Moreover, Rolling Stone summed it best, “Following a six year hiatus, it almost feels like the Jonas Brothers are bigger than ever.” 
 
The band closed out a banner year with the release of “Only Human,” another Top 5 hit on both Top 40 and Hot AC radio airplay charts. What’s more, they garnered a bevy of awards, including a 2019 MTV Video Music Award for “Best Pop Video” and two 2019 Teen Choice Awards for “Artist Of The Decade” and “Choice Summer Group.” Plus, they were nominated in top categories at the American Music Awards, including “Favorite Duo or Group Pop/Rock” and “Favorite Song Pop/Rock.” Most recently, they notched their second GRAMMY® nomination for “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.”

Oh Wonder, No One Else Can Wear Your Crown, 360 MAGAZINE, Olga De La Iglesia

Oh Wonder – Happy

Oh Wonder welcomes you warmly into 2020 with their brand new single “Happy” out today—listen HERE! The new track arrives just weeks before the band’s fast-approaching third album, No One Else Can Wear Your Crown, is released on February 7th. The duo has also unveiled international dates for the “Wear Your Crown Tour,” which is on sale now at www.ohwondermusic.com. See a full list of dates below.
 
“Happy” is the fourth glimpse at what is to come from Oh Wonder’s highly anticipated third album, and once again finds the band putting modern, millennial love under the microscope. Inspired by the moment you realize you are able to wish your ex well with their new love, and actually mean it, “Happy” was in fact written by the band about Anthony’s ex-girlfriend; an irony that isn’t lost on the band who sing the track together, as a couple.
 
No One Else Can Wear Your Crown was written and self-produced in Oh Wonder’s own home studio, before being co-mixed with Cenzo Townshend (Bat For Lashes, Christine & The Queens, Jungle). In its 10-track entirety, it’s a record that explores a host of different emotions and experiences—some forged on the road on their last world tour, which included 300,000 world-wide tickets sold, and others from taking a break and reflecting on all that they’ve accomplished as a band so far, which includes a Top 10 album, a billion streams worldwide and global sold out tours.
 
It’s therefore unsurprising that No One Else Can Wear Your Crown has an overriding message of self-acceptance, empowerment and joy. It’s there in their brand new single “Happy,” as much as it’s in the Carpe Diem chorus of first single “Hallelujah”—a song of defiance that Josephine and Anthony wrote for anyone that has ever been told they can’t do something.
 
Ultimately, it’s difficult not to leave No One Else Can Wear Your Crown feeling uplifted and entirely convinced of the power of Oh Wonder. Recharged and ready for the next chapter, Oh Wonder appears more able than ever to just make it work: whether navigating the big questions of how to live and work with your partner down to the everyday drama of what happens to your dog now you have to go back on tour. No One Else Can Wear Your Crown is a candid, restorative set that offers a welcome antidote to our turbulent times, from a band firmly writing their own bright future. Ask, believe, receive.

FROM THE LEGENDARY ROCK BAND

‘WHO’ TO BE RELEASED DECEMBER 6 ON INTERSCOPE RECORDS
 
AVAILABLE ON ALL STREAMING SERVICES NOW
PRE-ORDER THE ALBUM NOW http://thewho.lnk.to/NewAlbumWE
 
‘Their best (album) since 1975’
The Times
“An all-rocking, all windmilling, spikily thought-provoking album”
Mojo September 2019

As opening lines go ‘I don’t care, I know you’re going to hate this song, and that’s fair we never really got along’ from The Who’s new single “All This Music Must Fade” is perhaps the most confrontational and catchy of 2019 so far.  “All This Music Must Fade” is available now at all digital retailers. Pre-order the new album, WHO, now.


The song, which debuted on the BBC Radio 2 Breakfast show yesterday, opens the WHO album and Pete Townshend describes it as ‘A song is dedicated to every artist who has ever been accused of ripping off someone else’s song. Seriously? Our musical palette is limited enough in the 21st Century without some dork claiming to have invented a common chord scheme’.


The Who has one of the greatest rock legacies in music history, they’re one of the all-time great live bands, have sold over 100 million records worldwide including 9 US & 10 UK top ten albums and 14 UK top ten singles in a career spanning six decades.
Now Fifty-five years after they made their first recordings, The Who is back with their first new album in thirteen years entitled WHO due for release on December 6, 2019.


The eleven-track album was mostly recorded in London and Los Angeles during Spring and Summer 2019 and was co-produced by Pete Townshend & D. Sardy (who has worked with Noel Gallagher, Oasis, LCD Soundsystem, Gorillaz) with vocal production by Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Roger Daltrey, Wilko Johnson).


Singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist and songwriter Pete Townshend are joined on the album by long-time Who drummer Zak Starkey, bassist Pino Palladino along with contributions from Simon Townshend, Benmont Tench, drummers Carla Azar and Joey Waronker, bass player Gus Seyffert and Gordon Giltrap.


The album cover has been created by famed pop artist, Sir Peter Blake who first met the band in 1964 at a taping of the legendary TV show Ready Steady Go. Sir Peter designed and contributed a painting to the sleeve of The Who’s album Face Dances in 1981.


The songs on WHO cover a myriad of subjects including the Grenfell Tower fire, musical theft, spirituality, reincarnation, the power of memory and ‘an old rock star that has lost his marbles’. Singer Roger Daltrey rates it amongst their strongest “I think we’ve made our best album since Quadrophenia in 1973, Pete hasn’t lost it, he’s still a fabulous songwriter, and he’s still got that cutting edge”.

After their triumphant return to Wembley Stadium in the Summer, the band will be embarking on a UK tour featuring a full orchestra in Spring 2020, the dates are listed below.

1/3 TripAdvisor Reviews Are Fake

HotelPlanner.com CEO Tim Hentschel explains how the recent report claiming 1 in 3 TripAdvisor reviews are fake.

Despite the report of fake reviews, Hentschel still trusts in TripAdvisor. “Tripadvisor has always kept a Chinese wall between its review department and advertising department,” according to Hentschel.

Hentschel elaborates that “TripAdvisor’s high traffic numbers mean it has always been able to have an independent review department. The site’s advertising sales have always been independently strong like Google or Amazon.”

Additional Tim Hentschel talking points:

  • “This debate is very old in travel tech circles. Everybody has been trying to build the perfect machine to spot fake reviews, but nobody has gotten close yet.”
  • “There are sites that make you verify a purchase before you can post a review, but those can be tricked as well, especially by a hotel or restaurant generating fake receipts.”
  • “Up to a few years ago the general consensus in travel tech circles was overall rating is a good indication of the quality of the project, i.e. anyone can fake a few reviews, but if you have hundreds and thousands of reviews and they are mostly positive or mostly negative, then that is good sign of the overall quality of the product.”
  • “A large problem are sites that charge companies a monthly fee to keep up positive reviews. Yelp is facing multiple lawsuits for this practice.”

HotelPlanner.com, the largest group hotel booking site in the world, was called the “go-to site” for travel planners by The New York Times.

The Shakes Debut Music Video

Hailing from the depths of Orange County, CA, Indie-alt collective The Shakes debut the official music video for “With Every Moment”.

The beautifully crafted video was shot and directed by Benny Gigliardi, who does justice for the track. Which stems from frontman and songwriter Sean Perry’s harrowing near-death experience, cited as the main influence for the EP. Benny, who is known for his work with up and coming artists such as Super Whatevr and Hearts and Lions, goes on to describe his process of bringing his vision into fruition:

“It was such a blessing and a pleasure to get to direct this video. I’ve known Sean and Cameron for a couple of years now and we’ve been talking about doing a video ever since we met and I’m so thankful we waited as long as we did. I didn’t necessarily have a storyline in mind for the video, I just wanted to create something visually stunning that would compliment the song and sell an 80’s vibe but also keep it original. Sometimes the best ideas come in the simplest ways, but you also have to be fearless with your approach. But if it doesn’t scare you, where’s the fun in that? It brought me joy to bring this song to life and I hope it does the same for all who see it. This is just the beginning for the Shakes and I’m honored to get to work with them and watch them grow.

The video, does indeed capture Perry’s unique sound which blends 80’s inspired grooves with infectious “Britpop” influenced lyrics and melodies. Comes right on the heels of the young collectives highly anticipated debut EP, released independently on July 23rd, 2018. The Shakes who have had a big year so far since their big break performance at The Troubadour, opening for The Strike earlier this year. Followed by many other key shows throughout Los Angeles and Orange County. Upon the EP’s release, not only were loyal cult followers thrilled, but also a new segment of listeners across the country. Partly due to key, infectious tracks such as “Scumptious” immediately pulling over 200,000 plays through streaming with praise from a wide range of well established music blogs online. You can check out the full EP for yourself on all streaming platforms.

With support from larger artists within the scene, such as Francois Comtois of Young The Giant. Whom featured on their debut single “Somebody” last year. THE SHAKES, aim to be a new refreshing voice within the rock scene and don’t look to be slowing down anytime soon. Already in the works on their next single “Six Feet Below”, coming early this fall.

You can view the cinematic video via youtube and IGTV on their instagram: @theshakesmusic which is cultivated with cinematic tones that are undeniably captivating.

We love APT’s mission of helping artists and fostering a community between them, and we feel privileged to benefit from their meaningful work, and to share it with our guests.”

Featured artists in the space include Logan Grider, an Oregon-based artist and Theresa Hackett, a Los Angeles-based artist, who will both have their works featured inside Manhatta and Bay Room. Hackett’s work incorporates non-conventional materials to create hybrid landscapes while Grider’s pieces showcase an abstract theme.

About Maroon 5:

Maroon 5 stand out as not only one of pop music’s most enduring artists, but also one of the 21st century’s biggest acts. To date, the universally renowned Los Angeles band have achieved three GRAMMY Awards and become “the most successful group in the history of the Billboard Hot 100” with 12 Top 10 entries, sold over 20 million albums and 48 million singles worldwide. The band has additionally earned gold and platinum certifications in more than 35 countries. Maroon 5 won over fans and critics alike with the hybrid rock/R&B sound they introduced on their debut album, Songs About Jane and their double platinum album, It Won’t be Soon Before Long. In 2010, the band released their third studio album, Hands All Over, which featured the hit singles “Misery” and the anthemic “Moves Like Jagger,” which has become one of the best-selling singles of all time. In 2012, Maroon 5 released Overexposed, which quickly reinforced the group’s status as a powerhouse in popular music with all of the collection’s singles rising to the top of the charts. The band quickly also set a record for the most #1’s (six in total) by a group in the Top 40 chart’s 20-year history. Maroon 5’s most recent studio album, V, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart and featured the hit singles “Maps,” “Animals” and “Sugar,” all of which went #1 on the Top 40 chart. The music video for the album’s GRAMMY nominated single “Sugar” has notably logged a record setting 2+ billion views to date. 2017 saw the musicians release two additional chart-topping singles, “Don’t Wanna Know” and “Cold,” as well as close out a massive world tour that touched down in 30-plus countries for 120 concerts in front of more than 2.5 million fans. On this tour, Maroon 5 also became the first American artist to headline two nights at “Rock In Rio” in September 2017.
