About JAGMAC

Growing up in a large, lively Filipino-Polish-American household, the six-piece, whose name comes from the first initial of its members’ names from youngest to oldest: Jared, Angelique, Gabriel, Manjo, Alyssa and CJ, discovered the shared power of their talents and bright personalities as a unit and began bringing their vision as a musical group to life, delivering music with the power to resonate in every corner of the globe. By integrating sounds, styles, and spirits from around the world, JAGMAC inspires culture and music to move as one. To date, the group has tallied over 3 million YouTube views, 2.6 million Spotify streams, and received media acclaim from the likes of Billboard, Hollywood Life, KTLA, Just Jared Jr, J-14, Tiger Beat, AXS, and Substream Magazine among others. Recognizing a collective power to unite even the most seemingly disparate of vibes, the siblings have also garnered an incredible following on TikTok, accumulating over 71 million views and 740K followers.

Combining their love for pop, dance music, hip-hop, and rap, JAGMAC’s explosive, upbeat songs are impossible to categorize as any single genre. Instead, the group’s music is connected by a simple mission: to spread positivity. They’ve been successful in this mission with their hit, feel-good songs taking them to arenas and stadiums around the globe, sharing the stage with the likes of The Chainsmokers, CNCO, Becky G, and Ava Max, in addition to performing at Arthur Ashe Stadium at the US Open, Times Square for Wonderama hosted by David Osmond (nephew of Donny and Marie Osmond) and co-hosted by Coco and Breezy, and London’s iconic O2 Arena opening for Little Mix on their U.K. tour.

Since forming the band in 2014, one performance after another paved the way for JAGMAC’s quiet rise independently. Upon release, their single “Soldiers” reached #1 on Billboard‘s Breakout Chart for Dance Club Songs, peaked at #15 on the Dance Club Songs Chart, and #5 on the Commercial Pop Chart. In 2018, JAGMAC released their debut EP featuring title track Right Back With You” which shot to #6 on the Commercial Pop Top 30 in the UK and #3 on the Upfront CLUB Top 30 UK. That same year, the band was crowned Radio Disney’s Next Big Thing placing them in good company with alumni such as Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, Alessia Cara, and Why Don’t We. They soon returned with their sophomore EP, Like A Band, featuring lead single and title track “Like A Band” which launched to over 1 million streams and received support from Sirius XM and Spotify on the Pop Remix, Happy Beats, and Dance Rising playlists. “We Found Love” is the latest in a string of singles from the band joining “MASARAP” which pays tribute to their Filipino heritage and “Motivation” as it speaks to the moments that inspire the band to continue chasing their dreams.

For JAGMAC, 2022 is looking to be their biggest year yet, thanks to a new management partnership with Jeffery David of Cranberry Management, who guided multi-platinum band Echosmith to worldwide status. “I am so excited about all things JAGMAC and what they are about. The songs are so good and what they stand for is something the world really needs right now which is LOVE,” shares David.

It’s safe to say, JAGMAC shows no signs of slowing down. Stay tuned for even more new music from the band coming soon!

K-Pop Cravity × “Bad Habits” Release

K-POP GROUP, CRAVITY, RELEASE

PERFORMANCE VIDEO FOR BAD HABITS

OFF THEIR 3RD ALBUM, SEASON3. [HIDEOUT: BE OUR VOICE]

K-Pop boy band, CRAVITY, has released their highly anticipated performance video for “Bad Habits” today. The B-side track is off their 3rd album, SEASON3. [HIDEOUT: BE OUR VOICE], released earlier this year. With an ambitious drive to turn the year 2021 into CRAVITY’s, the members wasted no time speaking to places like Good Day New YorkiHeartET CanadaRadio.com, and many more, about their success thus far and the creative process behind the album.

“We shot the performance video for “Bad Habits” using many new techniques we haven’t tried before, for example, shooting with night vision or lip-syncing to a lower angle camera through a glass pane. The dance routine was really fun to perform and suits the mood of the song really well,” says Rapper Allen. The leader of the group, Serim, adds “We had a very short time to prepare for our B-side track promotion, but we’ve worked super hard to complete it in success.” 

The main theme for the performance video of “Bad Habits” is ‘Nocturnal,’ and viewers can see the members’ dynamic moves and performance on the night of the full moon. They’ve turned into bad boys with funky visuals and will draw full attention by showing more matured and developed skills. The song “Bad Habits” is meant to showcase a different side of the CRAVITY members with a more rough and tough persona. The lyrics tell a story of 9 members who will not collapse in this world but will clearly show their own way to survive through it. EXY from K-Pop Group Cosmic Girls (WJSN) participated as a lyricist on this track with underground trap beats. In addition, 3 CRAVITY members [Taeyoung, Allen, and Hyeongjun] participated in the draft version of the “Bad Habits” choreography, further showing their artistic abilities.

CRAVITY’s debut album, released in April 2020, SEASON1. [HIDEOUT: REMEMBER WHO WE ARE] caused a wave of intrigue and excitement here in the states, with mentions in PAPER MagazineAccessiHeartJ-14MTV NewsEarmilkTeen Vogueand Rolling Stonewho referred to their title track as “An anthemic track from the K-pop rookies that combines 808-style riffs with the melodic sensibilities of early-2000s boybands (extended dance break included).” In addition to that, CRAVITY made a splash on social media, debuting at No. 12 on Billboard’s Social 50 chart for the week dated April 25.

CRAVITY has also garnered the title “Super Rookie” over in Korea due to their debut album’s success, which hit No. 1 on the U.S. @iTunes Top K-Pop Albums chart, making them the first #Kpop rookie group to debut in 2020 to earn this achievement. CRAVITY has marked their relentless movement, sweeping the rookie of the year awards at various music awards ceremonies in Korea. Even after releasing only two albums, their achievements were more than enough to show their presence in the K-pop scene, giving them the title ‘2020 super rookie.’

The inspiration behind the name, CRAVITY, came to fruition through the combination of “Creativity” and “Gravity,” Starship Entertainment’s new boy band for the first time in five years since Monsta X. Consisting of nine members, [Serim, Allen, Jungmo, Woobin, Wonjin, Minhee, Hyeongjun, Taeyoung, and Seongmin], CRAVITY, which is also an acronym for “Center of Gravity,” is meant to attract/gravitate listeners into their unique universe, by pulling them in with their creativity, charm, and pure talent. As humans, we all have our own “first experiences,”; whether that be in school, society, or in a relationship. When encountering new relationships, we sometimes prepare ourselves by running from the starting line at full speed, hearts racing, butterflies in our stomach, but at the same time, we are afraid. We are hopeful, but we also experience despair.
