Riles’s New Single ‘Marijuana’

After skyrocketing to popularity in France where he composed mixed and mastered 1 song per week for a year with his concept Rilèsundayz (+250m views /+220M streams), Rilès is back with a new single “Marijuana”, first track from his debut album and a stunning video featuring Snoop Dogg!

WATCH THE VIDEO HERE!

With “Marijuana”, Rilès is showing us a new side of himself, more soulful and organic. It’s the first joint venture between 3 of the biggest international labels (Republic/Polydor UK/Capitol FR) in many years. Rilès is the artist to follow in 2019. Debut album to be out before the summer.

‘MARIJUANA’ talks about my relationship with cannabis and its counter-productive effects that goes against my habits/mentality. The chorus “Baby, you’ve been on my mind” introduces marijuana in an attractive way, which aims to trick the listener who might think I’m talking about a woman at the very beginning of the song. However, the further you go through the song, the more you’ll notice that I’m talking about the drug and its similarities with woman/sex/lust which are also a drug in a certain way. The video starts with a random work night at my desk when suddenly I’m struck by the need of marijuana. The video depicts the tribulations I go through to try to resist the drug before succumbing to it and ending up laying down in my bed. ‘ –  Rilès

NETSKY recently produced two cuts on the Guetta’s recent album 7, including “Light Headed” [feat. Sia] and “Battle” [feat. Faouzia].

“’Ice Cold’ was such a fun song to make.” NETSKY adds about the new song, “I remember both Stargate and David Guetta making me crank up this demo in a LA studio and all of us vibing to it together.

DMV RAPPER Q DA FOOL DROPS ‘100 KEYS’

Just recently, the 21-year old DMV rapper Q Da Fool debuts his music project 100 Keys.

This is something all his fans were waiting for and now it’s finally here!

Just see below how the world has reacted so far since the release:

“The lyrics and the emotion of a song don’t necessarily have to flow in parallel. Listen to the twinkle-and-snap of his new Zay-produced single, “The Plug,” and you’ll hear Q mood-swing his way through the hook, going from boastful, to exasperated, to incredulous, and back around again. If it sounds like he’s scowling and smiling at the same time, he might be.” – The Washington Post

 

“Fool’s rise may seem out-of-nowhere to many, but the record deal and respect from peers is a vision he started to realise back when he was first gearing up to drop Trap Fever in 2015, even if he didn’t see it exactly panning out the way it has.” Noisey

 

Fresh off of the recent Roc Nation signing announcement, a slew of new releases, and a popular attraction of the press, the Maryland rapper is ready to take storm.

The rapper’s 100 Keys music project is his first official release on a major label. With Grammy Award-winning hit-maker Zaytoven handling the project’s production, Q takes you on a 10-track personal journey that encapsulates DMV life, personal struggle, and resilient redemption.

Much like the punchy, charged up trap song itself, “The Plug,” it is a visual testament to Q’s character. In “Normal Rapper,” Q brings a much appreciated unique flow into this story where he explains why he’s different from his current rap counterparts.

Bonita” staples Q’s presence as a lyrical threat, discussing the importance of friendship and what lengths Q would go to in order to protect the ones he loves. Q also depicts his savage lifestyle in “Fuck up the Mall,” with personal stories of his family fueling the rap fire and cementing Q as a modern lyrical force.

This is only the start for the Maryland rapper. This project will surely elevate Q Da Fool to new heights, and bring him the recognition he deserves.

Check out his new song here!

If you don’t know much about this all-star rapper, here are just a few facts to fuel your brain:

Through his grind, Q Da Fool continues to prove that he is true to both the game and his word.

 

Zander Bleck

Zander Bleck’s single, “Mercy Me” is definitely the summer rock jam. Zander’s incredible vocals and funk pop rock beats make for the perfect on repeat summer road trip tune. Check out more on Zander below!

A spellbinding voice, vibrant charisma and a compelling artist in ascension: Zander Bleck creates epic, anthemic music to propel rock and into the future.

A small town kid from rural New Jersey, Zander grew up geographically close to the towering spires of Manhattan. A talented musical family were prime influences as he absorbed the music of legendary artists from far before his time. A competitive athlete in high school, he moved to New York where modeling paid the bills and set the stage for his journey. “I developed a certain type of fearlessness,” Zander remembers. “When you get that hardened skin it prepares you well for the music business.”

After early successes with his East Coast band “Monument” , Zander went solo. He began focusing on his voice and his writing. Fate connected him to multiple Grammy-winning songwriter Holly Knight and he traveled to Los Angeles to write and record “Temptation,” the song that he recalls, “…changed everything.”

His distinctive voice captured the attention of producer RedOne, hot off the success of Lady Gaga. In US Today RedOne called Bleck’s voice “A mixture of Jim Morrison, Bono, and Freddie Mercury” and added, “There’s no singer like that right now.” RedOne introduced Zander to Jimmy Iovine at Interscope Records and a deal was made. When an executive shakeup reordered the label, Zander shifted to Capitol Records. But his major label launch was not to be.

“I had to get tough or die,” Zander remembers. “It was time to be true to myself.” Social media was key. “I was getting an instant response. Rather than going through the chain, here was the artist and the audience. When I sing a song on social media the message is immediate, to thousands of people all over the world. I started dedicating myself to this connection.”

Collin (Diggs) must make it through his final three days of probation for a chance at a new beginning.
