Becky G, 360 MAGAZINE

Becky G – SAYGRACE

SAYGRACE today offers a brand new remix of her Tiktok-topping hit entitled “Boys Ain’t Shit (Estos Chicos No Lo Son Remix)” Featuring Becky G.
Listen Here.
 
The video for ‘Boys Ain’t Shit’ has already enjoyed over 5 million views, and the single has been trending on TikTok with over 200k video creations.

This remix is the latest offering from SAYGRACE who released her critically-lauded debut EP last month entitled The Defining Moments of SayGrace: Girlhood, Fuckboys & Situationships. 

SAYGRACE says: “I am honored to have Becky G join me on this new version of my song. She’s such an accomplished performer and songwriter, who like me, also started out as a teenager in this business, and I am blown away to hear she’s a fan.*”

Adds Becky G about lending her voice to “Boys Ain’t Shit”: “I loved the original song so much and wanted to jump on it! I feel people around the world, no matter what language they speak, have related to the sentiment of the song at some point in life.”
 
“Boys Ain’t Shit” finds SAYGRACE flipping the script on a man who pushed her to the breaking point — but instead of vectoring in on the problems in their situationship, SAYGRACE turned the track into an anthem for all women who feel like swiping, doing emotional labor, and the interchangeable nature of modern dating is dehumanizing. 
 
SAYGRACE released a trilogy of videos for featured tracks on her EP – “Boys Ain’t Shit, “Doin’ Too Much,” and “Gone” , all representing the viewpoint of SAYGRACE’s younger self.
 
Offers SAYGRACE about her EP: “The things that I’ve gone through have made me a little rough around the edges and hard for some people to take, but it’s who I am. I’d rather be this way than be a version of myself that makes you feel more comfortable,” she says.
 
SAYGRACE thinks of her lyrics as a message to the younger version of herself, and a message to any woman who needs to hear it; that in a world that’s always trying to shrink you, you can be as big as you want. “As woman we’re told all your value is placed on how fuckable you are, but I refuse to accept that as reality,” she says. “What I realized as I got older is that nothing is more powerful than divine feminine energy and when woman come together and support each other the possibilities are infinite.” SAYGRACE is all about finding her place and her power as a young woman despite sometimes still feeling like a lost kid in this big world. 
 
Her EP, The Defining Moments of SayGrace: Girlhood, Fuckboys & Situationships, is her manifesto.

Isabel Merced × Papi

“‘Papi’ goes hard. Another Latin banger for the books.” – 360 MAGAZINE

Isabela Merced introduces her solo music with the brand new single “Papi.” Get it HERE via Republic Records.

“It’s a blend of everything that inspires me,” Isabela describes her music. “I’m very influenced by Latin music like salsa, reggaeton, cumbia, and bachata. I’m experimenting with instruments and sounds from Peru, because they’re beautiful yet untouched by the mainstream. There’s also an energy and edge that comes from urban and rhythmic. It’s a new take on Latin pop with my own Peruvian spice and attitude. I’m welcoming everyone into my story.”

The new single was co-written by Isabela, who worked with Andrés Torres and Mauricio Rengifo [“Despacito”] as co-writers and producers, co-writer Kennedi Lykken [Ariana Grande, Jonas Brothers], in addition to being co-written and executive produced by none other than powerhouse Justin Tranter [Justin Bieber, Julia Michaels].  Isabela arrives with an undeniable anthem topped off by Latin flavor and passionate pop prowess. Integrating Spanish and English, she fluidly writes lyrics similar to how she speaks—in bilingual fashion—making the music reflective of her voice and fitting what feels right in the moment.

“Papi” also kicks off her career as a solo musician under the name Isabela Merced—a tribute to her grandmother Yolanda Merced and her Peruvian heritage.

Merging a bold attitude, uncompromising spirit, unassuming pop appeal, and Latin melodies, 18-year-old singer and songwriter Isabela Merced turns up with an undeniable, unmatched, and universal sound of her own. Born in Ohio to a Peruvian mother and American father, she learned to speak Spanish before English and gravitated to Latin as well as classical and pop. Around the same time, she fell in love with The Wizard of Oz, watching it on repeat and developing an ambition to act. She fulfilled this ambition at 10-years-old with her Broadway debut in Evita under her birth name Isabela Moner. Critically acclaimed roles followed in everything from blockbusters such as Sicario: Day of the Soldado and Instant Family to a starring turn as the title character of Dora and the Lost City of Gold and in NETFLIX’s much-anticipated Let it Snow. Simultaneously, she honed her chops as a vocalist and picked up piano and ukulele. Making waves throughout 2018, Isabela contributed “I’ll Stay” to the Instant Family soundtrack and joined Sebastian Yatra for “My Only One (No Hay Nadie Más),” which amassed over 27 million Spotify streams. Signed to Republic Records, she makes her official debut as Isabela Merced with “Papi” in 2019.

LOOK AT HER NOW

Selena Gomez surprised fans today by releasing “Look At Her Now,” an upbeat song about perseverance. “Look At Her Now” is available today at all digital retailers via Interscope Records.  Selena co-wrote the song with Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter and Ian Kirkpatrick (“Bad Liar”). Gomez says, “I felt having these two songs released back to back completed the story of how one can rise no matter what challenges life brings.  Turning off the noise and living your life on your terms.” Listen to “Look At Her Now” HERE.

For the dance heavy music video, Gomez reteamed with acclaimed director Sophie Muller.  Just as Selena’s previous video (“Lose You To Love Me”), the video for “Look At Her Now” was shot entirely on the new iPhone 11 Pro. Watch the music video HERE.

Yesterday Gomez released the powerful ballad “Lose You To Love Me” available HERE.  Gomez co-wrote the song with long-time collaborators Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter as well as Mattias Larsson and Robin Fredriksson with additional production from FINNEAS.

Selena Gomez New Song

Selena Gomez releases a highly anticipated new song about self-love.  “Lose You To Love Me” is available today at all digital retailers via Interscope Records.  Selena co-wrote the song with long-time collaborators Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter as well as Mattias Larsson and Robin Fredriksson with additional production from FINNEAS. Gomez says, “This song was inspired by many things that have happened in my life since releasing my last album.  I thought it was important to share the music, as I know many can relate to the fact that the road to self-discovery generally comes through the scars in one’s life.  I want people to feel hope and to know you will come out the other side stronger and a better version of yourself.” Listen to “Lose You To Love Me” HERE.


The beautiful music video directed by the acclaimed Sophie Muller (“Good for You”) was shot entirely on the new iPhone 11 Pro.  Watch the video HERE.

At the end of 2017 Gomez was named Billboard Magazine’s “Woman of the Year.” In 2015, Gomez released her critically acclaimed album Revival. The first three singles off the album “Good For You,” “Same Old Love” and “Hands to Myself” went to number one on the US Top 40 chart. Gomez is one of only six female artists to have at least three songs from one album reach the #1 position since the chart launched in 1992.

Gomez most recently executive produced the critically acclaimed Netflix docu-series “Living Undocumented” which created much buzz and discussion regarding the polarizing issue of undocumented people living in the United States.  Earlier this year, she starred in Jim Jarmusch’s film THE DEAD DON’T DIE opposite Bill Murray and Adam Driver, which premiered at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.

Malaynah, 360 MAGAZINE, Felisha Carrasco

On The Verge of Stardom: Q+A With Rising Female Rapper, Malaynah

You just released your new single ‘Outta My Face’ tell us about the inspiration behind this song.

The inspiration behind my new single ‘Outta My Face’ was my energy and positivity I have within me. I wrote that song to inspire others to have the same energy that I do and surround themselves with that same positivity as well. 

You will be performing at the upcoming Welcome To The West music festival, how do you feel about being the only female rapper in the lineup? 

Being the only female on the Welcome to the West lineup means so much to me. I get to represent all the ladies on this lineup with so many legends. It makes me feel pumped up and ready to show everyone what I bring to the table. 

What are you most excited about for this performance?

I’m most excited to let my fans hear some of my unreleased music I’ll be performing. 

Cardi B reposted your video where you freestyled over her track “Money” and it hit over 12 millions view on her Instagram. What was your initial reaction?

When Cardi B reposted my freestyle video, my initial reaction was “NO F****** WAY.” I couldn’t believe it. I was so happy and proud of myself. That day was just filled with all kinds of emotion. 

We hear you began writing songs when you were 12 and secretly rapped in front of your bathroom mirror. When did you decide to share your talents in public and what made you decide to not keep it a secret anymore?

Performing in front of my family and getting the support I needed to actually put myself out there played a really big role with my decision to start posting my videos on social media platforms. Then when I got the response everyone in my family was telling me I was going to get, it made me just want to keep going. 

What or whom inspired you to start rapping?

What inspired me to start rapping was the reaction I would get when I would perform. When people were listening to what I was saying, and shared that a line I wrote hit home for them. Their reaction was just priceless. So I figured, if I can help people get through something by my words, I want this forever. 

What are you most excited about in your career right now?

Right now, I’m mostly excited about all the new songs and projects that are going to be dropping soon.

Do you have any new upcoming projects in the making?

Yes I have an E.P. that is going to be coming out very soon! 

If you could have one dream dinner guest, who would it be?

If I could go to dinner with ANYONE, I think I would want to sit down with J. Cole.

Refinery29’s Style Out There

WATCH NOW: SEASON 3 PREMIERE OF REFINERY29’s SERIES

Style Out There

Refinery29 returns with season 3 of the award-winning video series, Style Out There. With over 23 million views over the last two seasons, host and journalist Connie Wang digs back into the way clothing has given women a way to speak out, look within, and identify the forces that limit their potential. Through these stories, Wang discovers the powerful way fashion illuminates social and political issues, ranging from the connection between sexy clothing and sexual assault to instances when cultural appropriation can actually be both useful and productive.

Episode One of Style Out There is Now Available

In episode one, Connie Wang explores the cultural phenomenon of Disneybounding. Despite Disney’s strict rules prohibiting adults from wearing costumes inside its theme parks, die-hard fans have found a creative way to nerd out with their clothing.

Episode One Highlights:

On What Draws Disneybounders to Disney’s Films and Theme Parks:

“I didn’t grow up speaking English, they would take me outside of class to teach me how to speak English and I felt like that was pretty much Ariel. She was not feeling really part of the Mer-world but not too much part of the human world. Her story to me was very like I get it, I’m in that in between space, I’m neither here nor there and that’s okay and I can be part of both worlds.” – Evette, Disneybounder

“Disney to me is selling a feeling of happiness and joy and magic and nostalgia. No matter how uncertain the world seems, Disney kinda stays constant and consistent.” – Chelsea, Disneybounder

“In a land of synthetic monuments, Disneybounders have found real reasons to share hope, friendships and fanny packs. If the world looks better through rose colored glasses, maybe I’ll grab a pair? Hey, those could go great with a piglet disneybound.” – Connie, Host

On Disney’s Growing Diversity:

“We’re going to see a queer prince one day. We’re going to see a Vietnamese, a Japanese, different parts of Asia we’re going to see a Latina princess from Puerto Rico, from Cuba, from South America. I feel like slowly we’re going to get there one day.” – Evette, Disneybounder

Style Out There will premiere new episodes every week on Refinery29’s YouTube channel, exploring Japanese Cholas subculture in Nagoya, the rise of Afrofuturism across the globe, the American Escaramuzas, and Jamaica’s dancehall queens.

LILIMAR

*Featured image by Amanda Elkins

Rising star, Lilimar, is the embodiment of class and style. She is a young, energetic and gorgeous Latina – born in Venezuela to Cuban parents – and is the accumulation of everything Young Hollywood strives to be. She is best known for her series regular role on the Nickelodeon series “Bella & The Bulldogs,” but can now be seen starring in the networks popular new series: “Knight Squad,” which returns for season 2 in early 2019. Lilimar stars as the lead role of “Sage” a very interesting witch, that is full or fire and fury (but in a good way!). “Knight Squad is set at a magical school for knights in training, where two mismatched students form an unlikely alliance to protect each other’s secret and pursue their dreams,” according to a Nickelodeon show description.

Off-screen, Lilimar has used her strong social presence to set empowering, self-love social initiatives like #FreshFaceFriday and #StarGazeSaturday; with the goal of lifting up her followers and encouraging them to embrace their unique beauty and individuality.

I was really excited to start both of these on my socials, because I just love connecting with my stargazers (my supporters). I’m so incredibly grateful for every ounce of love & support they show as it always keeps me so positive and happy so I wanted to do something that shows that I support THEM just as much.” – Lilimar

The goal is to encourage young people to break boundaries and not be afraid to show the world who they really are beneath the make-up, the clothes, and fake images we try to portray online. We live in a world where we’re forcing ourselves to achieve perfection through photos instead of embracing our true natural beautiful selves. Connecting directly with her fans on these topics, Lilimar discusses issues that teens think about today like peer pressure, family, owning your individual power, societal norms in the modern age.

Her messages of truth and self-love are the reason why she’s poised to be America’s newest sweetheart.
