Tia Tia – Boys Go Marching

Today, buzzing pop trailblazer Tia Tia reveals a new single entitled “Boys Go Marching.” Listen to “Boys Go Marching” HERE.

On the track, a pulsing beat thumps in between acoustic guitar and finger-snaps as she oozes attitude on each verse. She serves up an instantly irresistible refrain with the rhyme, “Them boys go marching two by two Escalades and face tattoos they ask me, Hey whats good with you.”

It arrives on the heels of recent anthems such as 
Night & Day” and “Call Me.” Between the sassy lyric video and showstopping and stunning music video, the latter has amassed over 250K cumulative YouTube views and counting.

Last year, the New Jersey-born and Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter made her debut as an artist with the intoxicating “Red Wine.” Right out of the gate, it claimed coveted real estate on playlists such as Spotify’s New Music Friday and Fresh Finds: Pop. It lit up TikTok with hundreds of thousands of views and even caught the attention of Victoria Justice and the legendary Gwen Stefani who shared it on an Instagram story.

Behind-the-scenes, her songwriting discography includes Justin Bieber’s “Off My Face,” Ava Max’s #1 “My Head & My Heart” and Sabrina Carpenter’s “Skin.” Recently, she notably co-wrote “I’d Rather Have Sex” for Anitta’s blockbuster new album Versions Of Me out now. She also scored a BMI Award for co-writing Ava Max’s “My Head & My Heart.” Emerging as a powerhouse performer, she just lit up the Galore party at Coachella. She also recently graced the Grammy Awards red carpet, receiving praise for her iconic spikey updo from tastemaker publications like Nylon, E! News, Elle, and Vogue.

Watch the “Boys Go Marching,” as Tia Tiagets ready to take over pop in 2022.

GXVE

Musical icon and multi-hyphenated artist Gwen Stefani unveils her first-ever beauty brand: GXVE

GXVE is anything but ordinary. Pronounced “give,” it represents Gwen’s passion for makeup. From her signature sharp brows and bold red lip, Gwen‘s obsession with makeup started at an early age, when she was a makeup artist in Orange County, CA, working the department store beauty counters. Before the music, there was makeup—makeup to get her ready for a show, date night, or even the carpool line.

Nearly 4 years in the making, GXVE was created for the community of creative people who love makeup and find their inspiration there. It offers artistry for all and embraces the “GXVE” and take that happens between beauty lovers when they share their unique forms of makeup self-expression. The “GX” represents the way Gwen has forever signed her name—”G” and “x”—a kiss. 

The bold, high-performance GXVE launch collection features a series of products that are quintessentially “Gwen”. In over 30 years, she has never revealed her signature shade of red lipstick.  Now, fans can enjoy this Stefani staple in 3 different lip formats. All formulas are clean, vegan and cruelty-free and the lipsticks, eyeshadow quads and brow pencils are housed in eco-conscious refillable packaging.

All products range from $24-$48 and are now available exclusively HERE and HERE. GXVE by Gwen Stefani will roll out to Sephora brick and mortar stores beginning March 10th.

GIANNINA AZAR LAUNCES ‘METALLIC’ LINE

Fashion Designer Giannina Azar Launches New ‘Metallic’ Line in Miami This Sunday Ahead of Art Basel

The Collection Features Stunning Evening Dresses Wrapped in Glitter, Metals and Rhinestones, and is a Collaboration with John Casblancas International Center and Model & Talent Management Agency

She has dressed superstars like J. Lo, Gwen Stefani and Brittney Spears. Her designs have been featured worldwide in Vogue, Cosmopolitan and Forbes. This weekend, just ahead of Art Basel, Miami is getting its first look at “Metallic,” the new high-end line of evening wear from fashion ikon and international designer Giannina Azar.

 “My new ‘Metallic’ collection is avant-garde, modern and opulent, draped in glitter, metals and rhinestones and is designed for today’s modern woman who wants to make a statement,” Azar said. “It highlights true metallic tones, in addition to orange, red and black colors and is a design I am extremely proud of.”

Azar is collaborating once again with Amy Dalli, the president of John Casablancas International Center and Model & Talent Management Agency in Miami. The two previously worked together for Miami Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week and on the premiere of Azar’s swim line that debuted at Miami Swim Week.

“Giannina and I met a few years ago and we immediately formed a special professional relationship based on the mutual standard of excellence in all that we do,” Dalli said. “The new ‘Metallic’ collection includes some of the most exquisite designs I’ve ever seen and proves once again why Giannina is such a trendsetter in this industry. I’m so excited to be working with her again.”

Dalli grew up modeling for John Casablancas and acquired the Miami-based agency in 2018. Her goal is to bring the John Casablancas name back to the level of worldwide notoriety it had in the 1980s and 90s. Collaborating with industry legends like Azar is just one way she’s doing that. The 5,000 square foot MTM center in Doral includes a runway room, two makeup rooms, an acting studio and a photo studio to develop and represent talent starting at the age of five.

Will Claye – Wee Hours

Today, hip-hop artist and Olympic medalist Will Claye releases his latest single, “Wee Hours,” out now via Red Bull Records. Written by Claye, “Wee Hours” was produced by Grammy-winning songwriter and producer DJ Khalil, best known for his work with Jay-Z, Kanye West, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and more.

Drawing from his own experiences, the strength of “Wee Hours” lies in Claye’s introspective and poignant lyrics, which he delivers with a West Coast-influenced flair. As the opening melodies and subtle instrumentations float in and out of focus, the single’s smooth production is effortlessly juxtaposed against Claye’s heavy-hitting flow.

“This track is inspired by my city, my people, and the kids who are growing up where I come from,” says Claye of the release. “I wanted to speak for people whose voices have been suppressed. I want to inspire my people and show them that even through all the horrific things we have gone through as a people, we can make it through and rise above it all.”

The release of “Wee Hours” follows the announcement of Elevate, the forthcoming documentary from Red Bull, set for release on Tuesday, June 8. The short film follows Claye as he trains for the Olympics and records new music, working to make his mark on the world. As his moment in the spotlight parallels a cultural boiling point surrounding racial injustice, Claye seeks to use his voice to inspire his community’s youth, serving as a positive role model for the next generation. Watch the trailer here.

About Will Claye
Three-time Olympic medalist Will Claye started his path as a world-class athlete. By way of track and field, he was able to move into starting his brand ELEVATE, music, and philanthropy. Will’s brand grew largely at the London Games in 2012, where he earned a bronze medal in the long jump and a silver medal in the triple jump to become the first man since 1936 and the first American since 1904 to obtain medals in both events. The Phoenix, AZ native of Sierra Leone-descent solidified himself as the #3 triple jumper of all time in 2019 and at the same time released an EP, WEST SIDE STORY, and single “TMS.”

The catalyst for Will’s music career came from artist YG inviting him to the studio and them creating “IDGAF,” what is now known as a classic West Coast record. From there, Will began to create his own lane and his own sound, taking inspiration from Bob Marley, Andre 3000, Snoop Dogg, DJ Quick, Pharrell, Jay Z, Nipsey Hussle, Kendrick Lamar, and Nate Dogg. With a wide array of influences, Will has created a sound that is eclectic and diverse, based on how he is feeling and what is going on in life. He is a rare combination of talent and genuine humility, recognizing that he can use his status as an artist and professional athlete to help others.

GWEN STEFANI AND SAWEETIE TEAM UP ON EMPOWERING “SLOW CLAP”

Watch the video for “Slow Clap” HERE 

Global superstar Gwen Stefani adds yet another iconic pop collaboration to her catalog with the release of Slow Clap” featuring the multi-platinum rap star Saweetie. The empowering track, Stefani’s first single of 2021, is inspired by a mash up of sounds with Saweetie’s unabashed verses. “Slow Clap” featuring Saweetie is available now at all digital retailers via Interscope Records.

The “Slow Clap” video was directed by Sophie Muller, a long-time Stefani collaborator who also helmed the memorable clips for No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak” and Gwen’s solo track “Wind It Up.” Watch the energetic video HERE.

With lyrics about embracing resilience and staying confident despite feeling like an underdog, “Slow Clap” is classic Gwen: “Been the champion, rang the bell / Rocked the bottom, been through hell,” she sings. “Climbed the mountain, now I’m well / I just feel like coming back for the belt.”  Saweetie, whose forthcoming debut album featuring recent drops with Doja Cat (“Best Friend”) and Demi Lovato (“My Girlfriends Are My Boyfriend”), reinforces this confidence with bold and unapologetic lines: “My favorite position is CEO check the stats / Me and Gwen Stefani snatchin’ wigs on the track.”

“Slow Clap” builds on the momentum of “Let Me Reintroduce Myself,”which reached No. 1 on the iTunes chart upon its release. In 2020, Stefani also had two No. 1 hits on Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart with fiancé Blake Shelton, “Nobody but You” and “Happy Anywhere,” and reissued her holiday album, You Make It Feel Like Christmas, with two new songs, including “Here This Christmas” co-written with Ryan Tedder.

A three-time GRAMMY Award winner, Stefani has achieved global success as a performer, songwriter, and frontwoman of No Doubt, and a multi-platinum solo artist, among other accomplishments. To date, she’s sold more than 50 million units worldwide. Her 2015 solo album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. She also spent five seasons as a coach on the Emmy-winning NBC series The Voice where she led contestant Carter Rubin to be crowned the season 19 winner. The classic warmth of “Slow Clap” sets the tone for what fans can expect from Stefani as she plans to release more music this year.
