CARDI B REVEALS!!

It’s all about Cardi B in Fuse’s latest episode of Fuse’s Weekly News Rap hosted by Brooklyn emcee Cryssy Bandz.

After finally unleashing her debut studio album, Invasion of Privacy, the”Bodak Yellow” performer revealed some exciting, life-changing personal news while also dominating music charts and television ratings.

“She dropped a single, and I cannot stop my head from bopping. Her album went gold within a few hours of it dropping,” Bandz raps. “Even Oprah had to take a listen. She probably bumping ‘Bodak Yellow’ cooking in the kitchen. You got an icon bumping to your music, then you killing. Went from Instagram to Love & Hip Hop, now on the billboards winning.”

Along with co-hosting Saturday Night Live, during which Cardi officially revealed her growing baby bump, the Bronx native clarified why she’d kept her pregnancy a secret. Bandz, a mother herself, tipped her hat to Cardi. “You know the haters always got somethin’ negative to say. But knowing Belcalis that stuff could never stop her day. Like why she kept denying rumors saying she was pregnant. She said ’cause people scrutinize, try and destroy a blessing. Plus, when expecting, you should be at peace and live in essence. I would’ve done the same thing, so thank you for the lesson.”

The episode is available now on Fuse’s official YouTube channel.

DUKE DUMONT OFFICIAL “INHALE” VIDEO IS OUT!

DUKE DUMONT DELIVERS OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR “INHALE”
View Here:

Buy / Stream “Inhale” Here:
https://DukeDumont.lnk.to/inhalesingle

GRAMMY-nominated producer Duke Dumont has unveiled his wildly quirky official video for “Inhale,” his single with rising UK talent Ebenezer. View the official video HERE. “Inhale” is available for streaming and purchase HERE via Astralwerks.

Telling the tale of Robert Lloyd’s famous poetic line, slow & steady wins the race, the “Inhale” video showcases the story of a sloth who manages to escape to the office elevator first on a Friday evening, amid the chaotic and violent scenes that break out in the workplace as the clock hits 5pm. The themes of relaxation and living a stress-free sloth-like life transpire through Duke’s lusciously down-tempo melodies on the record, which follows his “For Club Play Only” EP, and Gorgon City collaboration “Real Life”- a hugely popular anthem of the 2017 Ibiza season.

Laced with the slick vocals of critically acclaimed, rising star Ebenezer, “Inhale” relies on a funky-groove led bassline, and electronica synths that give the track a summery feel, and look set to follow in the footsteps of Duke’s previous two UK #1 hits “Need U (100%)” and “I Got U.”

A true global superstar, Duke Dumont has amassed over 1 BILLION combined streams across his flurry of releases to date, and continues to tour worldwide. With a number of shows already locked in for 2018, the Brit will travel to Las Vegas for residencies at Wynn and Daylight, as well as headlining festival slots all round Europe, Australia, San Diego, Chicago, and many more.

Having recently released his Bad Romantic 9-track EP, Hommerton-born Ebenezer has previously worked with the likes of Ty Dolla $ign, Jeremih and Craig David and gained support from the likes of Noisey, FADER, and Hunger. Ebenezer is swiftly gaining reputation as one of London’s hottest exports.

Preceding the release of Duke Dumont’s highly anticipated album, “Inhale” has already racked up nearly 4 million Spotify streams since release, with the official video out now!

Conversation With Coach K

On April 11th, UMUSIC Experience hosted a Masterclass – a conversation with Hip-Hop cultural icon Coach K, moderated by Spotify’s Artist & Label Marketing Manager Amber Grimes at the historic African-American Morehouse College. The event was held at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center to nearly 400 students.

Watch Here: Event Recap

Grimes asked a series of questions about manifestation, trust, adaptation and continuous progress.

Coach K immediately began dropping gems throughout the conversation. “Everything I do is applied to sports and every team needs a coach?” says the former all-state quarterback
football player and scholarship awarded basketball player Kevin Coach K”. Lee when discussing
his relationship with Quality Control, the label he shares with Pierre Pee Thomas.”

Together they run a record label and recording studio and manage artists Migos, Lil Yachty, Lil Baby,
Trippie Redd and many more.

When Grimes asked Coach K how he instills trust in his artist, he says “I let them dream. We let them be visionaries. We not coming to change anything. We just tighten the loose ends.”Coach K knows a great deal about helping artists become superstars by combining their talent
and work ethic while taking risks.”We built our whole company [by] taking risks! Sometimes you gotta take that risk.” Coach K also added that he focuses heavily on the artists’ brands. “ I also believe in brand-building and luck doesn’t come in brand building.”

Both Atlanta natives, Coach K and Amber Grimes were passionate about bringing this event to the historically black Atlanta University Center.

”I have been wanting to do this event for three years,” says Coach K.

“This is my first time doing something like this.”Coach K hopes he can use his life as masterclass to teach others how to become successful.”

There is no book that can teach you about this business. It’s on-job training. If I can let my story lead somebody’s path, I’m with it,” he says. “The day you come complacent is the day it stops. You have to keep going!”

UMUSIC Experience partnered with Quality Control Music, Motown, Capitol Music Group & Caroline to bring the masterclass to life.
