JENA ROSE LIFESIZE CHESS MUSIC VIDEO – CHECKMATE

Cuban-American gen-Z artist Jena Rose hit a 5-week streak on MTV’s Friday Livestream with Kevan Kenney, joining a-list artists including Harry Styles and Zayn in the fan-voted Top 10 rankings. The larger-than-life music video, “Checkmate”, released via Gem Street Music and Sweety High, was inspired by “The Queen’s Gambit” and her lifelong fascination with chess. The pop track visually follows Jena as she takes the power back in a toxic relationship. Watch here.

Since releasing “Checkmate” in June, Rose has experienced tremendous momentum across social media and DSPs. By the numbers, “Checkmate” has generated 4.65M total views and streams, 450K monthly Spotify listeners and 70K new TikTok followers. Additionally, the “Checkmate” sound has been used in 8.3K videos.

The single kicks off an exciting new chapter for Jena Rose and prepares listeners for her forthcoming debut EP Baby, Maybe. The project is slated for release later this year and will feature collaborations with all-star co-writers/producers including Nick Furlong and John Feldmann (Blink 182, Panic! At The Disco).

Christened a “tour de force” by American Songwriter, Jena has toured with Aly & AJ, Echosmith and Why Don’t We, attended NYFW (dressed in Alice+Olivia, Anna Sui, Tom Ford, etc), and worked on brand partnerships with Tommy Hillfiger, FabFitFun and MAC.

About Jena Rose

Growing up with a father who immigrated from Cuba and a mom raised in Chicago, Jena was inspired by a wide array of musical influences from a very young age. Displaying a precocious talent early on, she started playing her own songs on tour with AJR, Echosmith and Why Don’t We when she was only 17-years-old. Trained as a multi-instrumentalist, singer and dancer, with over 1M social followers and 10M likes, she is an artist to watch in 2021. Gearing up for a slate of releases, fashion week, and her debut EP, Rose will be back on tour just as soon as the world allows.

BAD CHILD — “ROYALTY REMIX”

Today, singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist known as BAD CHILD reveals the ominous “Royalty Remix” of a previously released track in collaboration with LA-based indie-alterative artist No Love For The Middle Child through Capitol Records. You can listen HERE.

“Royalty” was originally released earlier this year as a track on BAD CHILD’s debut record Free Trial. BAD CHILD recalls on the original track, “‘Royalty’ is a song I want to scare people with, it’s about wanting too much and becoming enveloped in greed. It’s very angry and NIN inspired it heavily.” The intensity of the track is enhanced with the remixed version of the original.

Over the past three years, BAD CHILD has quietly been gathering momentum as an artist with only a handful of releases including his debut EP, Sign Up, a COVERS EP including reinterpretations of songs by Harry Styles, Bill Withers and Soundgarden plus his debut full length record Free Trial. He has quickly become one of the most exciting alt acts to watch; profiled in Complex, HillyDilly, Sidewalk Hustle, Atwood Magazine, Wonderland Magazine and Toronto Star.

His song “Candy,” featuring Ryan Chambers, was included on the soundtrack for the highly publicized Netflix film, To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You. And last year, BAD CHILD’s single “Blood” was featured in a global Apple Watch campaign.

BAD CHILD’s eccentric music and unique vision landed him on the festival circuit in the summer of 2019 playing some of the world’s most prestigious line ups including Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds and Osheaga.

Peach Tree Rascals "Oh Honey (I Love You)" from Kristin Robinson at 10K Projects for use by 360 Magazine

PEACH TREE RASCALS — OH HONEY (I LOVE YOU)

Today, California misfit collective Peach Tree Rascals share a new music video for “Oh Honey (I Love You),” a sentimental track off of their debut EP, Camp Nowhere, released March 26 via Homemade Projects/10K Projects. Produced by James Bahmen and directed by creative house Kids Don’t Know, the new music video shares the enduring love story of an elderly couple in flashbacks to their younger years, when they first fell in love. Starring bandmate Joseph Barros as the main character, the new video is a testament of lasting enduring devotion, featuring cameos from each of the Rascals. Watch the music video for “Oh Honey (I Love You)” HERE.

The new music video arrives shortly after Peach Tree Rascals’ breakout hit “Mariposa” became RIAA-certified Gold, and after the group’s new cover of John Mayer’s “Stop This Train,” available now exclusively on Amazon Music. In the past year, the group has received praise from Billboard, Forbes, The Fader, VMAN, BuzzFeed, and more.

Peach Tree Rascals largely wrote and recorded their debut EP Camp Nowhere in seclusion, finding inspiration while camping. Centered on themes of recovery and healing which they attribute to their increased time outdoors during quarantine, the Rascals debut EP is a comforting and optimistic album for the times.

Camp Nowhere came from the idea that a lot of people have been using the isolation of quarantine and the state of the world to dig deeper into themselves and figure out what’s important to them,” rapper/singer Tarrek shares. “For some it’s discovering a new hobby, or that it’s time to move on to a new place. For PTR, it was taking a week in Yosemite to dive into our creativity. We’ve always done a combination of sounds that inspire us all. This feels like all of our inspirations mixed together.”

To date, Peach Tree Rascals has garnered 400M+ streams across platforms and count 6M+ Spotify monthly listeners. Their breakthrough hit “Mariposa” charted to #1 on the Alternative Radio Chart and has been co-signed by Lizzo and Harry Styles.

WHO ARE THE PEACH TREE RASCALS?

More of a brotherhood than a collective, The Rascals blend a seemingly effortless knack for melody with layers of rich harmony and R&B grooves. Recording together since their high school days, producer/mixer Dominic “Dom” Pizano, rappers-singers Issac Pech, Tarrek Abdel-Khaliq, Joseph Barros, and creative director Jorge Olazaba united with the intent of seeking musical growth and companionship. With most of the members being second-generation Americans (the sons of Palestinian, Filipino and Mexican immigrants), they quickly realized a deep, natural connection with one another, and grew into a single, harmonious unit. You can buy their merchandise HERE.

Male pattern baldness article illustration for 360 magazine by Kaelen Felix

Embrace the Shine: What Being Bald Says About a Man

Bald men are more likely, on average, to say that they’re sexier than their hairy counterparts. However, those with hair are more likely to be terrified at the prospect of losing their hair, leading to an apparent discrepancy. Regardless of how an individual man feels about hair loss, there are actually many social benefits to shaving off your locks.

Here’s the Honest Truth: Partially Bald Men are Less Attractive

When men and women were polled to determine what was more attractive: men with hair or without it, there tended to be a consensus that either or was up to preference. However, if you’re partially balding, have a bald spot on the top or sides of your head, you’re considered less attractive on average. They were also perceived as weaker compared to bald men. 

Many men keep a bit of hair on their head, even if they’re balding because it’s difficult to accept their hair is receding. If you’re not ready to completely get rid of your hair, you can purchase expensive hair plugs or try a finasteride tablet treatment plan. 

On Average, Bald Men are More Attractive than Those with Hair

You don’t need to worry about keeping those locks forever because women consider bald men incredibly attractive. Plenty of celebrities like Jeff Bezos, Jason Statham, and Bruce Willis have no hair on their heads, and they’re among the most high-profile, rich stars in the world. Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, is actually the richest man on earth.

None of them needed hair to achieve their goals or attract a partner – and neither do you. There’s just something about being bald that entices women, and it’s probably the fact that you don’t care about social expectations and embrace your true style. Realize that a lack of hair doesn’t mean a lack of masculinity or attractiveness!

Bald Men are Seen as Stronger 

Men with entirely bald heads were perceived to be more masculine, taller, dominant, and about 13% stronger than those with full heads of hair, according to this United States study conducted in 2012. This association with masculinity may be appropriate for men who want to hold power in government to shave off all thinning hair completely.

Many other magazines have tried to mimic this study to see what their viewers thought. The Guardian photoshopped celebrities without hair and compared them to their typically hairy selves. About half of the celebrities selected were seen as appearing more powerful without hair, including Harry Styles and Simon Cowell.

Bald Men Are More Intelligent

Researches from Barry University in Florida created a social experiment that asked if baldness in men made them more physically attractive, aggressive, tolerant, or mature. They found that men with fuller hair were lower than bald men on all of these metrics – including intelligence. All ratings were consistent with all of their participants.

The reason for this is because bald men are typically older, though obviously, that isn’t always the case. Older men are seen as more intelligent and wiser, which can only come with experience. Men no longer need to have a piece of paper to hold the appearance of intelligence; you only need to shave off those hairs!

Bald Men are Seen as More Sexually Potent

Male pattern baldness is associated with too much testosterone in the average person’s body, which is the primary sex hormone. However, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. Baldness is actually caused by a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a derivative product of testosterone.

While baldness doesn’t actually make you more sexually potent, you can use that rumor to your advantage. After all, baldness doesn’t make you stronger or more intelligent; it makes you perceive these traits. What’s the harm in your potential partner thinking you’re better in bed because you’re bald?

Harry Styles × Vogue

By Cassandra Yany

Harry Styles made history Friday as the first male to grace the cover of US Vogue. Styles defies gender stereotypes in the fashion magazine, which has become a point of controversy on social media in the days following its reveal.

On the cover of the December issue, Styles is photographed in a field wearing a pale blue, lace Gucci dress. He is featured wearing different skirts a number of times throughout the spread.

“Clothes are there to have fun with and experiment with and play with,” Styles says in the cover story. “What’s really exciting is that all of these lines are just kind of crumbling away. When you take away ‘There’s clothes for men and there’s clothes for women,’ once you remove any barriers, obviously you open up the arena in which you can play. I’ll go in shops sometimes, and I just find myself looking at the women’s clothes thinking they’re amazing.”

While most fans took to social media to praise the artist for his redefinition of gender norms in the shoot, some public figures shared their distaste for the photoshoot and Styles’ stereotypically feminine attire.

Coservative author and political activist Candace Owens quote-tweeted Vogue’s post promoting the cover story, saying “There is no society that can survive without strong men. The East knows this. In the west, the steady feminization of our men at the same time that Marxism is being taught to our children is not a coincidence. It is an outright attack. Bring back manly men.”

Styles’ supporters quickly called out Candace, posting TikTok videos of her wearing a pantsuit, citing her hypocrisy. Actress and filmmaker Olivia Wilde responded to Owens’ tweet with a simple, “You’re pathetic.” Styles is set to star in Wilde’s upcoming film Don’t Worry Darling.

Conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro had a similar reaction to that of Owens, saying “Outward indicators of masculinity and femininity exist in nearly every human culture. Boys are taught to be more masculine in nearly every human culture because the role of men is not always the same as the role of women. The Left knows this, of course. The POINT of style doing this photo shoot is to feminize masculinity.”

One of the most recent celebrities to jump to Harry’s defense has been internet personality Logan Paul. On the latest episode of his podcast “Impaulsive,” Paul showed his respect for Styles in his effort to challenge social norms. When his co-hosts questioned his stance on the issue and the “manliness” of the dress, Paul said “What is manly to you? What does it mean? Is manly like being comfortable in your own skin and being comfortable with who you are, regardless of what people think about what you’re wearing?”

On social media platforms like Twitter and TikTok, it is evident that more users praise Styles than criticize him for his bold statement in the cover. Many argue that fashion choices do not define a person’s identity. Despite his detractors, Styles remains one of the biggest names in pop culture and it doesn’t look like his widespread admiration is going anywhere with his first solo single “Sign of the Times” just re-entering the Top 100 US chart on iTunes. 

Harry Styles – Golden

Harry Styles fans from across the world all tuned in to watch his new music video for his single “Golden.”

Following the music video for his single “Watermelon Sugar,” which was released at the end of July 2020, Styles continued the theme of bright colors and zany outfits in the “Golden” video.

Running through the Amalfi Coast, Styles interacts with locals and dances with the blue waters setting the backdrop in the video directed by Ben and Gabe Turner. “Golden” is already certified Gold by the RIAA and is the follow-up single to “Watermelon Sugar” and “Adore You,” both of which are certified Multi-Platinum and hit #1 on the Top 40 and Hot AC radio charts.

“Watermelon Sugar” also topped the Billboard Hot 100, marking his first ever #1 on the chart. The tracks are all featured on Harry’s Platinum certified album Fine Line, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 upon release and was recently named one of the top 500 albums of all time by Rolling Stone.

Vogue said that Styles was seen driving a convertible and a speed boat at the Amalfi Coast leading fans to believe a new video was on the way. They were right. Styles wasn’t just gallivanting around the coast for leisure, though that wouldn’t be a surprise either, he was collecting clips for the “Golden” video.

While Styles has excelled in his solo music career following the split of One Direction, he has also become a fashion icon for his gender fluid looks and fashion pieces that push boundaries. One thing Styles is known to do is wear lesser known designers intermixed with high fashion brands.

For the “Golden” video, Styles chose to wear the designer Steven Stokely-Daley, more notably the white and blue floral pleated trousers seen throughout the video and for the single’s cover. Stokely-Daley graduated from the University of Westminster this year earning his BA in Fashion and Apparel Design.

British GQ reported, “The items sit within Stokey-Daley’s graduate collection, which saw him use deadstock and leftover tweed, chiffon and silk from Alexander McQueen’s material archive, donated to the university by the brand under creative director Sarah Burton’s guidance.”
Styles also wore a piece from young designer James Pink.

Adding more to his repertoire, Styles is investing in a new arena in his hometown of Manchester according to Variety. Set to open in 2023, the project is lead by the Oak View Group and will be called CO-OP Live. “I’m incredibly proud and excited to be partnering with OVG on their plans for Co-op Live. Manchester is an incredible city, filled with incredible people, and I couldn’t be happier being involved in this project,” said Styles to Variety.

Styles is keeping busy this quarantine: new music, new fashion, and even a new building project. He no doubt makes us jealous by frolicking around Italy in the “Golden” video, but while he soaks up the Mediterainian sun, we’ll be watching the video on repeat to feel like we’re there too.
