JUANES – Un Dia Normal

Celebrating a milestone anniversary for one of Latin Music’s seminal and uplifting albums this century, Universal Music Latino has announced two special 20-year anniversary editions of JUANES’ record-setting and global breakthrough album, Un Dia Normal. A digital-only 20-year Anniversary edition (remastered in HighResAudio and Dolby Atmos) is now available at all major Digital Music providers, while a limited vinyl, CD and cassette special edition (providing fans with a combination of demo recordings & Juanes‘ personal commentary) can now be pre-ordered HERE. Here’s what people had to say. 

“Twenty years ago, Juanes released his breakthrough album…  with its mix of catchy pop, cutting rock, and traditional Latin sounds, Un Día Normal took him to an entirely new level. It spent 92 weeks on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart, setting a record at the time, and it spun off gigantic back-to-back hits such as ‘A Dios Le Pido,’ ‘Mala Gente,’ and ‘Es Por Ti,’ all songs that helped define pop-rock in Spanish for that era. The album won six Latin Grammy [awards], including Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Record of the Year—and it made Juanes a star. …he remembers putting together the album during a hectic, emotional time, filled with highs and lows that inspired the sound of the record. He talks about the changes he was going through at the time, how he drew from his past, and how Un Día Normal changed the game,” said Rolling Stone. 

“One of Latin Music’s greatest… and most essential albums…  Juanes‘ contagious beats and socially conscious lyrics were a huge success… single ‘A Dios le Pido’ became a Latin anthem… and  ‘Un Dia Normal’ conquered the Billboard Latin Albums chart for two straight years, remaining in the top 10 for 92 weeks and won [six] Latin Grammy awards. …it perfectly captured the mainstream possibilities of singing in Spanish,” said Billboard.

Juanes on the Album

“I was passing through a very dark moment and a very light moment, and I think Un Día Normal really showed that in the music. Songs like ‘A Dios le Pido’ and ‘Es Por Ti’ were inspired by my family, my hope for better days, and also my wife, actually. I was completely in love and I thought at [the] time that my life was really changing in a very positive way. Un Día Normal reflected all of that. At the beginning of my musical journey, I started with folk music from all of South America. It was very normal [for] me to listen to tango and bolero, rancheras, vallenatos, cumbias. Then, when I became a teenager, I became crazy over rock music. I was an extremely big fan of heavy metal and Metallica. And then at some point around my twenties, I just realized that I needed to go back to my roots and I wanted to bring some elements of all of that to my music.”

The Una Historia Cantada Tour also created one of the Latinx community’s biggest viral trends of 2021, as thousands of fans took to social media—posting the moment they presented tickets to their parents as a gift around Father’s Day. With the 2022 dates set to go on-sale this week, look for a possible repeat social presence in tandem with Cinco De Mayo and Mother’s Day.

The press conference ended with Los Bukis presenting a Mother’s Day gift to a special group of mothers who won the chance to be flown into Los Angeles for the announcement. The mothers in attendance came in from different cities on the upcoming U.S. and Mexico tour to help celebrate the final shows. Each of them were gifted two tickets to the tour stop in their cities together with a beautiful Mother’s Day flower bouquet and Los Bukis memorabilia. 

About Los Bukis

Founded in 1976 by cousins Marco Antonio Solís and Joel Solís and dissolved in 1996, Los Bukis recorded 16 studio albums that quickly won the public’s heart and produced numerous chart-topping and Multi-Platinum to Diamond certified songs that are among the most revered by fans across the Latin Music spectrum. The Houston Chronicle details that, “Los Bukis emerged in the 1970s as a new force in the grupo genre with a cornucopia of hits. By the ’80s, they completely dominated Mexico’s pop-music scene.”

Tokischa × Rosalia – Linda

Tokischa and Rosalia’s new hit single “Linda,” has been trending, with the music video becoming #1 in the world. Here’s what people are writing. 

Mitu said, “Tokischa & Rosalía’s Worlds Collide in a flirty and fierce club banger. “A hard-hitting [but] vibrant and bouncy new single… dropped [with] a stylish music video filmed in the Dominican Republic” wrote Complex. “To no one’s surprise, it’s an absolute bop from start to finish that showcases the talent of both women while delivering something fresh and an equally noteworthy sound” raved Remezcla. Consequence stated, “The Spanish superstar and polarizing Dominican up-and-comer… deliver a snappy, sexy number…  and steamy music video…that’s as uncompromising as the musicians themselves.”

“Rosalía and Tokischa vindicate ‘uncomfortable’ feminism in their new song, Linda,”  El Mundo stated. 

Many more publications have been speaking very highly of this dance banger. You can find the song HERE and watch the music video HERE

About Tokischa

Her vocal tone is instantly identifiable and is another major factor in making her songs distinctive.

This project is built upon a love of music instilled by my family, appreciation of my culture, and the discovery of the songs and artists that first completely stirred my soul.  ‘These are the songs that reside deep in my heart and continue to be a map to which I constantly return to remember who I am, where I come from, and where I am going. These songs were all recorded live, with the intention from the very beginning of performing them in a very special concert setting.

Måneskin Tops Global Charts

MÅNESKIN ON TOP OF THE WORLD #1 ON THE SPOTIFY GLOBAL CHART WITH BEGGIN’ AND AT #8 WITH I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE

The Groundbreaking Young Rock Band Surpassed Olivia Rodrigo’s good 4 u And Notches A Third Day With The Platform’s Most Streamed Song In The World, And Is The Only Artist With TWO Tracks In The Chart’s Top-10

Måneskin is a high-octane powerhouse of onstage charisma and youthful energy… [they] transcended linguistic barrier[s]… break down gender barriers and champion self-expression… There is something very revolutionary about them. – THE NEW YORK TIMES

ITALY’S MÅNESKIN REIGNITES ROCK – Måneskin is leading the charge for the return of rock as the Eurovision winners light up global charts. They won with ‘ZITTI E BUONI,’ but it’s their English-language material, natch, that’s primed them for an international breakthrough. The band’s cover of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons’ ‘Beggin’ has soared on Spotify’s global chart, followed by ‘I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE…  Will Måneskin be the act that ends Olivia Rodrigo’s run at the top of Spotify global? – HITS Daily Double

Måneskin, the world’s most-streamed Italian artists on Spotify – with 34 million streams in the last month, just broke another unprecedented record, skyrocketing to number 1 on the Spotify Global Chart with Beggin’, and also cracking the world’s charts with I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE and ZITTI E BUONI.  All three of the tracks recently reached #1 On Spotify’s U.S. Viral 50 chart. 

Zitti e Boni and I Wanna Be Your Slave are part of the band’s new album Teatro d’Ira – Vol. I, released on March 19, certified platinum in Italy and now basts over 400 million streams.

Following their epic win at the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest, Måneskin have climbed up the charts worldwide, achieving unprecedented results for Italian artists: they are the first Italian band in the history to crack the UK Singles Chart with two singles at the same time – at #6 and #10 – and collecting new gold and platinum certifications every week, in Italy and around the world.

MANESKIN ARE COMING FOR THE U.S. NEXT – the young Italian rock group has become a force to be reckoned with this year. And in just the past few weeks, their profile in the United States has taken a giant leap…Maneskin’s English-language single ‘I Wanna Be Your Slave,’ a song now helping to bring rock music back to the airwaves in the United Kingdom, started rocketing up the U.S. charts as well. ‘I Wanna Be Your Slave’ hit the top of Billboard’s Hot Hard Rock Songs chart the week of June 26, becoming the act’s first stateside No. 1. It makes perfect sense when considering the accessible strain of rock that Maneskin produce — a bouncy, guitar-fueled sound that brings to mind the 2000s garage rock explosion… Yet Maneskin’s production style is more polished, lending itself to the massive amount of radio airplay and internet spins they’ve amassed – LOUDWIRE

There’s an alluringly dark look in Damiano David’s black-lined eyes that’s almost like a challenge… David looks like he was hewn by an ancient Roman god of rock and roll — and sex. When I think of a sex symbol, I think of David… His band, Måneskin, is pushing boundaries and bringing a modernized glam rock into the limelight. Their surge to popularity hopefully marks a resurgence era of rock… While many of the artists I characterize as glam rock used their ambiguous, flamboyant dress as a form of expression for their sexuality, Måneskin is normalizing a more gender-fluid presentation…Måneskin could care less about social constructs. Everything about them is art… These 20-year-olds are embodying the Gen-Z tendency for nonconformity and a distaste for machismo’s objectification of women and hindrance of men’s actions and appearance. The way they present themselves is a visual treat… [and] completely badass… The way that Måneskin incorporates gender-bending fashion is tantalizing and only adds to their sex appeal …There’s a spirit and sensuality. They’re starting a conversation and to me that means they’re doing something new and right… Måneskin’s conversion of glam rock into a modern rock look, while creating global hits is going to make them eternal. – Megan Ramsey. Daily Nexus

BIOGRAPHY

Revelation of the year, Måneskin, which means moonlight in Danish, is formed by: vocalist Damiano, bassist Victoria, guitarist Thomas and drummer Ethan. Some band members have been friends since junior high, but they started playing together only in 2015. Their sound is characterized by a combination of the different members’ music influences: a mix of rock ’n’ roll, rap/hip hop, reggae, funky and pop, all held together by lead vocalist Damiano’s soulful voice. This combination of vibes is also reflected in the band’s look, made unique by each member’s fashionable style. The young artists had the chance to really stand out and reach out to the public at the X Factor 11 live shows, where they unexpectedly dominated the stage, a great endeavour given their very young age. Chosen, their debut single that was released during the show, boasts several million streams and views and was certified double platinum. Chosen is also the title of their debut EP, released in December 2017 by Sony Music and produced by Lucio Fabbri, which was certified platinum just two months after it was released.

All the dates of their first 21-date tour produced by Vivo Concerti (February/April 2018) sold out in a few hours. The single Morirò da Re (three-times platinum) was released in March 2018, followed by Torna a casa (five-times platinum). These tracks paved the way for the new album Il ballo della vita  entirely written by Måneskin and produced in collaboration with Fabrizio Ferraguzzo, which was released on October 26, 2018. The record made its debut at #1 on the FIMI/Gfk chart with four singles earning a spot on the Top Ten and, less than two hours after its release, it peaked to #1 on iTunes, cracking, just a day after its release, the Spotify TOP 50 with all its songs and hitting 1 million streams in less than 24h. In February 2019, the band went on tour across Europe, before returning to the best music clubs and festivals in Italy as part of the spring-summer leg of IL BALLO DELLA VITA TOUR, which ended on September 14, 2019 with a special date at Carroponte in Milan. Måneskin then performed at a sold-out special live show held on November 28, 2019 at The Dome in London. 

Damiano, Victoria, Thomas and Ethan have so far earned 23 platinum and 5 gold records, collecting over 140,000 tickets sold and 70 sold-out dates in Italy and Europe. On October 30, 2020 they released their new single Vent’Anni, accompanied by a campaign shot by celebrated photographer Oliviero Toscani. Måneskin won the 71st Sanremo Music Festival with the song ZITTI E BUONI, and then conquered the Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam. The release of their second album Teatro d’ira – Vol. I on March 19, 2021 will be followed by a 13-date tour held, for the first time ever, at sports arenas across Italy, which will kick off in December 2021 and end at the Arena di Verona on April 23, 2022, as well as by a tour across Europe’s greatest Music Festivals, which is scheduled for the summer of 2022.

Stay Connected With Måneskin via their Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music.

Metallica – The Black Album Remastered

Metallica marks the 30th anniversary of its self-titled fifth album—a/k/a The Black Album—with two landmark releases, both out September 10th on the band’s own Blackened Recordings:

The Black Album is one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed records of all time. Its 1991 release not only gave Metallica its first #1 album in no fewer than 10 countries, including a 4-week run at #1 in the U.S., its unrelenting series of singles — “Enter Sandman”, “The Unforgiven”, “Nothing Else Matters”, “Wherever I May Roam”, and “Sad But True”—fueled the band’s rise to stadium headlining, radio and MTV dominating household name status. The album’s reception from the press was similarly charged, building over the years from the top 10 of the 1991 Village Voice Pazz & Jop national critics poll to becoming a constant presence in the likes of Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time. The album’s impact and relevance continue to grow—as proven by one indisputable fact: The Black Album remains unchallenged as the best-selling album in the history of Nielsen Soundscan, outselling every release in every genre over the past 30 years.

To commemorate its 30th anniversary, the GRAMMY-winning, 16x platinum-certified Black Album is receiving its definitive re-release.  Remastered for ultimate sound quality, The Black Album remaster will be available in multiple configurations.

Much more than a mere tribute album, The Metallica Blacklist celebrates the enduring influence of this musical milestone with one of the most ambitious projects ever conceived by the Metallica team: An unprecedented 50+ artists spanning an unbelievably vast range of genres, generations, cultures, continents and more, each contributing a unique interpretation of their favorite Black Album cut.

The Metallica Blacklist offers up new dimensions of the record whose gravitational pull first drew the mainstream to Metallica—and provides new insights into the universal and timeless appeal that kept it there: the boundary-smashing influence these 12 songs have had on fans and musicians of all stripes. The Metallica Blacklist’s 53 tracks find singer songwriters, country artists, electronic and hip hop artists sharing their love of these songs alongside punk rockers, indie darlings, icons of rock, metal, world music and many, many more… and for 50+ good causes: Profits will be divided evenly between charities of the artist’s choice and Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation.

The Metallica Blacklist is a fitting and limitless homage, one that features bands who’ve shared stages with Metallica alongside artists who are younger than the original album. It’s a truly staggering, at times mystifying assemblage of musicians, dozens of whom have little to nothing in common other than the shared passion for the music that’s united them for this album: 1 Album. 12 Songs. 53 Artists. Unlimited Possibilities.

The Metallica Blacklist will be available digitally September 10th, with physical formats to follow on October 1st including 4 CD and a limited edition 7 LP vinyl pressing. Pre-orders will instantly receive multi-platinum selling recording artist, songwriter, philanthropist and trailblazer Miley Cyrus’ version of “Nothing Else Matters” featuring WATT, Elton John, Yo-Yo Ma, Robert Trujillo and Chad Smith, and Latin music superstar Juanes’ interpretation of “Enter Sandman.”

“A Billboard Latin Artist On The Rise… Discovered by Latin producers Chris Jeday and Gaby Music, Lunay… Lunay has had entries on the Billboard Hot 100, Hot Latin Songs and Latin Airplay charts, [and] became a household name with his 2019 hit ‘Soltera’ and its remix featuring Daddy Yankee and Bad Bunny.” – Billboard
