About Wizkid:

Grammy award winning singer/songwriter Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun (aka Wizkid) began his career in music when he was just 11 years old in Lagos, Nigeria. His first record, Lil Prinz, was recorded in 2001 in collaboration with Glorious Five, a group consisting of Balogun and his friends from church. In 2006, he started pursuing music full-time, at first collaborating with various Nigerian pop acts including OJB JezreelNaeto C, and Banky W. By 2011, he was ready to record his debut studio album as a solo artist: Superstar was released via Empire Mates Entertainment to great critical and public acclaim across Africa, propelling him to stardom in his home country. After multiple delays and label disagreements, Balogun released his sophomore album titled Ayo in 2014. This second studio album had a multitude of guest appearances, including a spot from Femi Kuti. It also featured Balogun’s global breakthrough track “Ojuelegba.” Not only did the single cement his status as one of Nigeria’s biggest pop acts, it was also picked up and remixed by Drake and Skepta, thrusting Wizkid into the international spotlight. In return, Wizkid appeared on Drake‘s 2016 smash single “One Dance.” 

In March 2017, it was announced that Wizkid had signed a major deal with RCA and Sony International, which released his third LP, Sounds From the Other Side, later that year. A handful of singles appeared in advance of the album, including “Daddy Yo”, “Sweet Love” and “Come Closer”, and were successful; the latter is certified Gold in the USA and the UK . 

Following his impressive international campaign, Wizkid refocused energy on his Starboy imprint in Africa. From releasing viral records like “Soco” with his affiliate acts to securing partnerships with brands such as Puma, Wizkid has solidified himself as a millennial pioneer for African entertainment. As an ode to his hometown, Wizkid released his fourth full-length project titled Made in Lagos in 2020 with guest appearances from Burna BoySkeptaDamian MarleyH.E.R, Ella Mai, and more. The album is the highest charting Nigerian album on the Billboard 200 of all time, the longest charting Nigerian album of the century on Billboard World Albums chart, and the first and only African album to be RIAA certified Gold in the US with half a million in sale units. Hit single “Essence” became the first Nigerian song to feature on the Billboard Hot 100 and peak #1 on US urban radio. Made in Lagos, along with his Grammy award winning feature with Beyonce and five sellout shows at the o2 Arena, prove Wizkid’s movement to be one of lasting global impact.

Making major moves to kick off the summer, GRAMMY® Award-winning R&B icon, songwriter, producer, actress, and entrepreneur Brandy inks partners with Motown Records—as announced today.

To celebrate the big news she just delivered a showstopping performance of “Rather Be” as part of the first-of-its-kind performance and content series launched by Motown Records and COLORSxSTUDIOS in honor of Black Music Month. Her instantly recognizable vocals take flight on this fan favorite from 2020’s B7.

Right now, Brandy is putting the finishing touches on her anxiously awaited eighth full-length offering and Motown Records debut—coming very soon.

This will undoubtedly be Brandy’s boldest, biggest, and best era yet, and it begins now!

Brandy has defined the sound, style, and soul of modern R&B. Throughout her incredible career thus far, she has earned a GRAMMY® Award and sold over 40 million albums worldwide, cementing her as an indisputable and inimitable global icon. At the same time, she has appeared in dozens of television series and films, including famously starring in Moesha as the lead character, garnering a NCAAP Image Award.

Meanwhile, her sophomore opus Never Say Never has notably moved 16 million units worldwide to date, while Complex christened her quadruple-platinum debut, Brandy, among the “50 Best R&B Albums of the 1990s.” Most recently, B7 bowed at #12 on the Billboard Top 200 and closed out 2020 on year-end lists from Billboard, Rated R&B, UPROXX, and more.

JIMMY JAM & TERRY LEWIS – JAM & LEWIS VOLUME 1

Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis are no strangers to the top of the charts. However, this time they’ve returned as artists for the first time in their storied career!

This past weekend, the Grammy-Award winning legendary production duo recently turned artists took over Apple Music when their anxiously awaited debut album, Jam & Lewis Volume One [BMG], captured #1 on the Apple Music Overall Top Albums Chart. It is available here. The record is also on track for an impressive debut on multiple Billboard charts.

At the same time, the latest single “Somewhat Loved (There You Go Breakin’ My Heart),” [with the multi-platinum, multiple Grammy award winning, New York Times #1 Best Selling author and global superstar Mariah Carey] has risen to #16 at radio, according to Mediabase. Of the latter, Billboard wrote, “A subtle piano vibe before a heartbeat and finger-snap beat bubbles up. By the time the chorus kicks in, the song fattens up with a ticking, bass-heavy thump as Carey croons.” It followed on the heels of “He Don’t Know Nothin’ Bout It” [with Babyface], which held a spot in the Top 5 of the Billboard Top R&B Songs Chart for a staggering 16 weeks and has spent nearly a half year in the top 10.

Songs from the album have notably gathered 5 million-plus cumulative streams and counting thus far. Among its blockbuster guest list, Volume 1 also includes Mary J. Blige, Boyz II Men, Toni Braxton, Usher, and more.

Inciting unanimous critical applause, The New York Times attested, “Jam & Lewis Shaped Pop History. They’re Working on Its Future, Too,” and Variety claimed, “This first volume boldly takes the pair all the way back to their flashy, funky time with the Time in its use of Morris Day and Jerome Benton, as well as presenting Mariah Carey, Toni Braxton, Usher and Mary J. Blige in the most dramatic and elegantly soulful settings.” In a four-star review, The Guardian summed it up best as “worth the 40-year wait.”

In other chart news, Jam & Lewis currently hold four entries in the Top 20. As co-writers with H.E.R. on the Double Platinum “Damage.” from her recent #1 album Back Of My Mind, as well as the #8 song on the chart, “Cascade,” with former Mint Condition front man Stokley. Mariah Carey, Babyface, and Stokley’s songs are all affiliated with Jam & Lewis’ Flytetyme/ Perspective label, marking two songs in the Top 10 and three in the Top 20 of the Billboard Adult R&B chart.

Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis have had an unprecedented career as producers, with five GRAMMY Awards, over 100 Platinum certifications, and 16 Billboard Hot 100 Number Ones. They’ve worked with legendary artists including Elton John, Lionel Richie, and Patti LaBelle, composed music for TBS and TNT networks’ NBA basketball broadcasts, as well as the theme to the opening ceremonies of the 1996 Summer Olympic Games. The duo has been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, received an NAACP Image Award, star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame and were recently nominated for a Primetime EMMY Award in “Outstanding Music Direction.”

After 40 years, Jam & Lewis are just getting started!

Deep Covers 187 image provided by Kiera Felton and Republic records for use by 360 MAGAZINE

C.S. Armstrong Reveals Deep Covers 187

Today, critically acclaimed R&B force of nature and 21 century bluesman C.S. Armstrong reveals his brand new Deep Covers 187 mixtape exclusively on Audiomack. Listen to it HERE via Republic Records.

On the project, he brings raw soul to stripped-down renditions of H.E.R.’s “Damage,” Lorde’s “Royals,” Solange’s “Cranes in the Sky,” and SZA’s “Good Days” as his soul-shaking delivery quakes over passionately picked guitar and intense keys. These four tracks will only be available on Audiomack, while his cover of “Limit To Your Love” by James Blake and Feistcan be found on all DSPs.

Carving out his niche with cover songs, C.S. Armstrong has also recently reimagined Gnarls Barkely’s “Crazy,” Summer Walker’s “Session 32,” and Sade’s “Sweetest Taboo.” Additionally, he teamed up with none other than Black Thought of The Roots for “Welcome To America” from the Judas and the Black Messiah Soundtrack. Attracting critical praise, The New York Times highlighted Armstrong’s “gritty vocal choruses.” 

All of this follows the release of “Own Two” featuring Jay Rock which will be included on his forthcoming major label debut album.

Be on the lookout for more from C.S. Armstrong soon.

Born to a single mother in the service with a preacher grandma in his corner,  C.S. Armstrong traveled an unbelievable road one step at a time. At 10-years-old, he preached in church as an ordained minister. At 16-years-old, he earned respect in the streets with his fists. At 18-years-old, he enlisted in the military to serve his country. Eight years later, he rolled into New York and lent his voice to one hip-hop banger after another. His instantly recognizable vocals shined on Statik Selektah’s “In The Wind” [feat. Joey Bada$$ & Big K.R.I.T] and Bun B, Prodigy, and Remy Bank’s “Where’s Your Leader.” His voice also coursed through Action Bronson’s tastemaker-approved Billboard Top 200 chart-topping Mr. Wonderful, in addition to joining the star on the road. Settling in Southern California, he powered Book’s “Last Man Standing” for the official Call of Duty: WWII trailer and dropped a pair of critically acclaimed independent projects, namely Truth Be Told [2019] and The Blue Tape [2020]. His voice echoed on Black Thought’s “We Could Be Good (United)” [feat. C.S. Armstrong & OSHUN] from the critical favorite Streams of Thought, Vol. 3: Cain & Able. Along the way, Dr. Dre became his “uncle,” Republic Records signed him, and he distilled gospel, blues, hip-hop, and rock into a sound as intoxicating and biting as aged whisky. Streamed millions of times and championed by BillboardA COLORS SHOW, and more, OnesToWatch claimed, “The music is something to grow old with.” Now, he tells the story with no filter on a series of singles for Republic Records.

EBEN × Dandelions

Rising singer, songwriter & producer EBEN has announced his highly-anticipated forthcoming project Dandelions, a 5-track collection and short film arriving August 12 via Atlantic Records/Signature Entertainment. The EP is preceded by lead single “Jenny,” with the official music video making its broadcast premiere today on MTV Live, MTVU and the Viacom billboard in Times Square.

Inspired by Forrest Gump, “Jenny” likens a doomed relationship with a cheater to the trials and tribulations of the iconic film’s namesake, while an organic bass line gives way to bold horns and handclaps as EBEN’s voice flutters from intimate verses into a hummable hook.

 “I was thinking, ‘Damn, Jenny put Forrest through it, and nobody really talks about that’,” said EBEN. “So, I decided to make a song. It’s about the moment of breaking up. You realize you’re always going to be hooked to this individual. You know it’s bad—but you keep going back. It’s not healthy. However, it’s the perfect intro to the ‘Dandelions’ story, and it’s got a nice summertime vibe.”

Co-penned/produced by EBEN alongside collaborators Asia Whiteacre (LouisTomlinson, 5 Seconds of Summer), Matt Campfield (Kehlani), Danny Klein and Modesty (H.E.R., Bebe Rexha) and featuring additional writing from Corbyn Besson of Why Don’t We, the Dandelions EP will drop alongside a stunning short film comprised of music videos for all five tracks. Directed by EBEN’s close friend Evan Hara, the movie was shot guerrilla-style over the span of three weeks along the West Coast from Portland throughout California. Together the EP and film take viewers on a psychological journey through the emotional stages of a breakup.

Hailed by Billboard for his “smooth pop-rap vocals” and deemed “immaculately polished”by Ones To Watch, EBEN has quickly risen to the ranks of today’s top new artists. The Cincinnati native made his major label debut with his 2020 Honeydew EP, which featured the earworm lead single “Sad Song” as well as rally cry anthem “The Kids Are Alright.”

Having amassed over 20 million career streams to date, EBEN has also proved to be an engaging live performer having supported Why Don’t We on their sold-out 8 Letters Tour, which packed arenas and placed him on hallowed stages such as Radio City Music Hallin New York City. Coming further into his own with Dandelions, EBEN took the past six months to dive deep into his artistry and experiment with his overall sound.

“I’ve really embraced who I am,” he explains. “I’ve had a lot of new experiences and met some people who impacted my life. I grew and took in all of these life lessons. I found that fire within myself. I finally became good with who I am. I have control of my destiny now. I’m confident.”

H.E.R. – Back Of My Mind

We’re halfway through 2021, and H.E.R. (who is halfway to EGOT status), has not let her foot off the gas! Today, the Grammy and Academy Award winner releases her highly-anticipated full-length album, Back of My Mind, via MBK Entertainment/RCA Records. Click here to listen.

Clocking in at 21 tracks, Back of My Mind includes a star-studded lineup of guest features by Chris Brown, Ty Dolla $ign, Cordae, Lil Baby, Thundercat, Yung Bleu, DJ Khaled, Bryson Tiller, and YG. Producers Hit-Boy, KAYTRANADA, Cardiak, Rodney Jerkins, DJ Camper, and more provide lush and repeat-worthy productions, leaving adequate space for the four-time Grammy Award winner’s pristine vocals (and guitar shredding skills) to shine throughout. R&B at its core, Back of My Mind showcases H.E.R.’s unique versatility as a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.

“This collection of songs comes from feelings and thoughts that I’ve had in the back of mind,” says H.E.R. “That’s where I live sometimes. Some things I talk about in my music and other things I may have been afraid to say or admit. I’m finding freedom in being truthful with expression.”

H.E.R. kicked off 2021 in the most stellar of ways by winning two Grammy Awards – Song of the Year for “I Can’t Breathe” and Best R&B Song for her contribution to Robert Glasper’s “Better Than I Imagined,” plus an Academy Award for her powerful song “Fight For You” from the Warner Bros. Pictures’ film Judas and the Black Messiah. Her recent show-stopping performance with Chris Stapleton on the CMT Music Awards was proceeded by equally impressive performances on the Billboard Music Awards with DJ Khaled and The MigosiHeartRadio Music Awards’ Elton John Tribute, Oscars: Into The Spotlight special, Super Bowl LV, and more.

Currently gracing the cover of VarietyH.E.R. is starring in her own special episode of Amazon’s Prime Day Show, featuring music from the new album. On June 21, iHeartMedia will host the iHeartRadio Album Release Party with H.E.R. featuring an exclusive performance and an intimate conversation with Angie Martinez. The event will stream on the FOXSOUL YouTube channel and FOXSOUL.tv., and broadcast across iHeartMedia’s R&B, Rhythm and select Hip Hop radio stations at 9pm ET/6pm PT.

The dynamic performer will return to NYC’s Rockefeller Center on June 25 for her second Today Show summer concert, followed by performances at the BET Awards on June 27, and her first-ever concert with the LA Philharmonic at The Hollywood Bowl on August 13 & 14.
