Continuing a non-stop year, Jessie Ware releases her latest single, “Hot N Heavy,” today. Co-produced by SG Lewis, “Hot N Heavy,” is a captivating and soulful dance track. The song comes straight from What’s Your Pleasure? The Platinum Pleasure Edition, the deluxe offering from her 2020 UK Top 3 album, out June 11via PMR Records/Friends Keep Secrets/Interscope Records.
The track brings back the electrifying dancehall energy that was so beloved on Ware’s most recent singles. Co-written by Jessie, Shungudzo Kuyimba, Model Child (Danny Parker) and SG Lewis, “Hot N Heavy” brings in familiar influences of 80’s electronica and the modern sensibilities that makes Jessie’s music so memorable. This, along with her truly outstanding vocals & tongue-in-cheek lyrics, really set this track up to be the soundtrack to summer.
“Hot N Heavy” comes along with what has been a stellar 12 months for Jessie Ware. Earlier this year, What’s Your Pleasure? re-entered the UK top 10 following a performance on Graham Norton, alongside her BRIT nominations for Female Solo artist and Mastercard Album. June 2020 saw Jessie gain not only her fourth UK Top 10 album of her career, but also her highest charting record at No.3 on the UK Official Album Charts.
As if this wasn’t amazing enough, she went on to release her first cookbook and continued her immensely popular podcast Table Manners and recently hit a massive milestone of 21 million individual listens, featuring household names such as Dua Lipa, Kylie Minogue, YUNGBLUD, Robbie Williams, Alanis Morissette, Dawn French, and Dolly Parton to name a few.
Catch Jessie live when she embarks on her UK 2021 tour that has been rescheduled for this December.
Today, with the release of her vibrant, retro-pop video for “Get It Out,” the LA-born, Tel Aviv-based singer/songwriter Talia Londoner shares the first taste of her euphoric musical sound, destined to place her among the next generation of pop stars. Combining the vibrant feminist visuals of early Madonna and the classic emotional style of Katy Perry, Robyn, and Kylie Minogue, “Get It Out” was produced and designed with renowned Penthouse photographer, Hank Londoner, and director, Boaz Aquino, taking listeners back to the anthemic, party pop of the 1980s. It’s the first single from Londoner’s debut EP, out this fall.
Talia’s style and aesthetic was shaped by a uniquely colorful background, growing up the daughter of Penthouse head photographer, Hank Londoner, and prima ballerina, Susan Freedman Londoner, in an iconic LA home commonly referred to as “the Dollhouse.” Boasting a bright yellow facade and an unmissable red door, each room surprised guests with a different color and floral textured wallpaper, creating a bright whimsical environment for the aspiring creative and host of colorful characters who came through its doors each day. The dollhouse is the birthplace for Talia’s bold and honest approach; it’s where she learned that truth and a willingness to reveal all of your colors can be a glue that bring people together. The making of “Get It Out” was a complete family-affair, with both Hank and Susan contributing to its production, design, and styling.
Transplanting from LA to Tel Aviv in 2013, Londoner found herself in high demand as a songwriter, collaborating with prominent groups like UK’s Invisible Men, Simon Cowell’s former head of A&R Anya Jones, Cutfather, and Israeli producer Oren Emanuel. After making it to the Top 10 on “The Voice,” she toured the country and saw numerous radio hits with the Israeli electro-pop outfit, Let’s Mars. The release of “Get It Out” marks Londoner’s return to the US after a whirlwind trip abroad, and the birth of her unique brand of timeless pop that she hopes will unite and inspire.
“’Get It Out’ is an uplifting, 80-inspired self-love anthem about letting go and feeling your way to freedom,” adds Londoner. “It’s a love letter to myself and to you.”
Talia is certainly an artist to watch this year! We can’t wait to hear what she comes up with next.
Following the recent release of his video for “Desperate” featuring Nina Nesbitt, unstoppable hit-maker Jonas Blue has now unveiled the sun-soaked video for the release of his fresh anthem ”Wild.”
Taken from his debut album Blue, the melodic hit was directed by creative mastermind Daniel Carberry and sees Jonas embrace Latin American culture alongside Puerto Rican rapper Jhay Cortez, (best known for his J.Balvin collaboration “Estan Pa Mi”), Argentine actress and singer TINI, and UK songwriter Chelcee Grimes (responsible for several huge hits from the likes of Dua Lipa, Kylie Minogue and Olly Murs). “Wild” sees all four artists unite during the video amid a vibrant flurry of bold colors on a warm afternoon in the peak of summer.
Enjoying another truly stellar year in 2018, Jonas Blue launched his own record label Blue Future, releasing a flurry of huge hits from his debut album Blue, including Liam Payne and Lennon Stella collaboration “Polaroid.” With Jonas also racking up the sound of the summer on Jack & Jack collaboration “Rise” the anthem – which has amassed almost 1 billion global streams – has also been nominated for Best Video at the 2019 BRIT Awards.
Amassing 5 BRIT nominations in his career so far, Jonas has also accrued over 6 billion streams worldwide and 35 million single sales. Cementing his reputation as a true worldwide superstar, the latin-inspired video for Jonas Blue’s latest single, “Wild” is out now!

About LETTERS LIVE
LETTERS LIVE first took place in December 2013 at the Tabernacle in London and quickly established itself as a powerful and dynamic event format that attracted outstanding talents to performing remarkable letters in front of a live audience.
Inspired by Shaun Usher’s international best-selling Letters of Note series and Simon Garfield’s To the Letter, LETTERS LIVE is a live celebration of the enduring power of literary correspondence. Each show always features a completely different array of great performers, reading remarkable letters written over the centuries and from around the world. One of the joys of Letters Live is that one never knows who is going to take to the stage or what letter they are going to bring alive.
The independent publishing house Canongate, who created and developed LETTERS LIVE, subsequently partnered with the film and television production company SunnyMarch to build Letters Live into an even more far-reaching and ambitious project. Their shared vision is to harness the power of letters through curated events of exceptional quality and to develop a multi-media platform that delivers the most memorable letters to people all around the world.
As well as celebrating the pain, joy, wisdom and humour expressed in letters, LETTERS LIVE has from the outset been committed to promoting literacy and to fund-raising for literacy charities. This remains an important part of its activities both in the UK and abroad.

“DISCOVERY” SELECTED BY ZANE LOWE AS A “WORLD FIRST” RECORD ON APPLE MUSIC’S BEATS 1
Today, Kailee Morgue uncovers her new single “Discovery, which was selected by Zane Lowe and played as a “World First” record on Apple Music Beats 1. Check out “Discovery” Here!
“Discovery” hints at the scope of Morgue’s vast creativity and musical sorcery. Over delicately chilling production, she delivers breathy verses and a lovelorn refrain that immediately captivates. In addition, to celebrate the release of “Discovery” Morgue has created an intricate lyric video for the track. See the full lyric video Here!
On the track Morgue stated: “Writing ‘Discovery’ definitely brought out a vulnerable side of myself. The song really emphasizes a feeling of abandonment and loneliness but in a hopeful way. It’s a mixture of this happy and sad feeling that I hope my fans can relate to as all emotions can be complicated.”
“Discovery” arrives hot on the heels of the viral hit “Medusa,” which quietly transformed the artist into a palpable phenomenon. Upon release, it launched to #2 on Hype Machine, was premiered by Fader and received “Best Track of the Week” by The New York Times, Line of Best Fit, MTV, Coup de Main and reached #2 on the Canadian viral chart on Spotify.
The 19-year-old songstress first teased out the track in 2016 with a brief Twitter video, and it ignited a viral reaction spawning 100,000 “likes” overnight. Over an airy minimalistic soundscape, Morgue exorcises a, hypnotic, and heartfelt melody with haunting and powerful lyrics.
“Medusa,” which originally premiered on Fader, was produced by CJ Baran [Melanie Martinez, Panic! At the Disco, Carly Rae Jepsen] is the first official release by Morgue but be on the lookout for more news soon. In addition, she recently posted a cover of label mate Post Malone’s smash hit “rockstar” ft. 21 Savage. The track is a follow up to a previous cover she posted of “Feeling Whitney” back in January. Check out the “rockstar” cover here!
Tattooed, green haired, and anime-obsessed 19-year-old Phoenix-born and Los Angeles-based gothic pop siren Kailee Morgue casts a sonic spell with her music. A self-described “introvert” and the second oldest of six kids, she found solace in the sounds of fellow sonic sorceresses such as Stevie Nicks and Gwen Stefani as well as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and more. By the age of ten, she picked up her first guitar, began quietly penning music, and eventually started posting tracks on Soundcloud. Between a gig at Jack in the Box, an 18-year-old Kailee found the beat for “Medusa” on YouTube back in 2016 and cooked up the single. As “Medusa” became an underground phenomenon, she inked a deal with Republic Records in the summer of 2017.

“Medsua’ is clean pop with a dark edge, a catchy song”- Pigeons & Planes

Critically acclaimed alt-pop duo POWERS—Mike Del Rio and Crista Ru—share their brand new single “Just Kids” today. Get it HERE via Republic Records.
An unshakable and unpredictable anthem of youth, “Just Kids” segues from a verse highlighting Crista’s delicate crooning into a tropical house-style drop and chantable hook. It’s the latest track to be released from the group after a string of unforgettable tracks released in 2017 including “Closer,” “Man On The Moon,” “Heavy” and “Dance.”
About the song, POWERS commented, “We were both still living in New York at the time, carving out our own existence with each other and the city when the initial seed of the song started. “Just Kids” was partially inspired after reading Patti Smith’s book of the same title and going through our own journey as Patti did in the 70’s. There’s something about undressing someone, figuratively- and in reality, that can feel so playful and eternal. Creativity and connection are what keep us taller children after all and we wanted to write a song about that.”
POWERS is Mike Del Rio and Crista Ru. If you haven’t heard their names, rest assured, you’ve heard their tunes. After Del Rio inked a publishing deal with Alex Da Kid (Rihanna, Imagine Dragons), his eclectic writing and productions started popping up on TVs, playlists and radios everywhere. Working with top artists such as The Chainsmokers and Kylie Minogue, Del Rio most recently made waves by producing the international hit “Lost on You” by LP, the anthemic “Jungle” for X Ambassadors[feat. Jamie N Commons & Jay-Z] and executive producing The Knocks’ So Classic EP (on which POWERS wrote and featured on the title track “Classic”). On the flip side of this creative powerhouse is songwriter and bassist Crista Ru. Aside from lending her distinct vocals and unique top lining to POWERS, her credits read like a “who’s who” of the recent pop landscape . From penning the lead tune from Selena Gomez’s Stars Dance album to working with Swedish duo Icona Pop, Ms. Ru has a poignant knack as an artistic muse and a searing-hot songstress, stirring the two together to push forward the sound of alternative pop. Previously in 2016, their infectious romper, “Beat of My Drum” shot up to the top of the Spotify Global Viral Chart and was featured as a lead song on campaigns for Garnier & Sprint. Following up with an equally impactful “Loved by You” and “Sunshine,” the band has reached over 60 million cumulative streams on Spotify, topped Hype Machine several times and received the coveted Emerging Artists Spotlight on iTunes.
