Nicole Zignago - Asi Me Siento Hoy ep cover art via Warner Music Latina for use by 360 MAGAZINE

Nicole Zignago – Asi Me Siento Hoy

Singer-songwriter Nicole Zignago presents her first EP “Asi Me Siento Hoy” and launches a new single 7 Letras,” available NOW on digital platforms. “This is how I feel today” includes his hits “Karate,” “Who would say ft. LAGOS,” “Questions (?),” ”Feelings” and “I Like That I Like You”. Each of the songs that are included in this EP details some of the facets that we face when being in a love relationship.

Her new single “7 Letras” , which accompanies the release of this EP, is a song produced by Manu Lara , Venezuelan producer behind the successes of Bad Bunny, Kali Uchis, Rauw Alejandro and Sebastián Yatra. This song talks about the moment when a message with seven letters, “call me” anticipates the end of a love. It is a song that singer – songwriter Nicole Zignago wrote alongside Marcos Mares , Manu Lara and Borja García Nieto .

“7 Letras” is the second theme in a third of songs that review the phase of falling in love: “Me Gusta Que Me Gustes” and “7 Letras” with the stage in which it ends and finally the moment in which that love is overcome. “7 Letras” is accompanied by a video directed by director José Lupercio , which was filmed in Mexico City in one of the most emblematic former convents, located in the Desierto de los Leones. This is a video that conveys that fear we feel when we are about to lose that love for that person that matters so much to us, and the more we hold on, the more we push that person away. This video clip is now available on Nicole Zignago‘s YouTube channel.

Nicole Zignago is a singer-songwriter of Peruvian descent, born in the United States and a graduate of Berklee College Of Music. She draws the attention of the public for the various covers that she uploaded to her YouTube channel and for being the co-author of the hit “1,2,3” performed by Sofía Reyes .

Bad Bunny Becomes AirBNB Host

With a body of work masterfully dismantling cultural norms and amassing over 9.1 billion plays on Spotify, Puerto Rican singer-songwriter and actor (and occasional wrestler), Bad Bunny keeps making history in his latest endeavor as an Airbnb Host.

After staying in Airbnbs himself in the past year, the chart-topping artist is becoming an Airbnb Host for the first time, inviting select fans to spend a night aboard his larger-than-life, matte black big rig—a one-of-a-kind truck with a 53′ trailer, following the last stop on his sold-out El Último Tour Del Mundo 2022 tour in Miami.

“Being on tour has reconnected me with my fans and the energy they give me during each show in every city we visit is incredible” the artist said. “I’m hoping that by hosting guests in my truck I can give them a chance to feel like they’re on tour with me. This truck has played such a big role in the concept of my tour and my last album that I want to share this unique experience with them.”

The West Coast Customs-designed rig with chrome flames, customized grill and lights, and all leather interiors is inspired by the influential role that trucks have played in Bad Bunny‘s musical success, even appearing on his latest album cover and taking center stage during the opening sequence of his set on tour.

The trailer will offer a glimpse inside the artist’s deeply personal space, with inspiration drawn from some of his most popular music videos including a bedroom decked out in florals like “YO PERREO SOLA,” and other spaces with nods to “LA NOCHE DE ANOCHE,” and “SI VEO A TU MAMA.”

Bad Bunny will open the doors to his big rig for three individual one-night stays occurring on April 6, April 7 and April 8 for two guests each at only $91 a night—a nod to his record-breaking 9.1 billion Spotify streams in 2021. Guests will have opportunity of a lifetime to experience a space that explores Bad Bunny‘s past, present and future, both on and off the stage, including:

  • VIP tickets to his sold-out tour in Miami ahead of the stay (travel and lodging not included) and a virtual greeting from Bad Bunny himself upon arrival
  • Nods to Benito’s Puerto Rican culture and his familial roots, including a kitchen designed to make you feel like you’re in Puerto Rico.
  • A photoshoot with the big rig to live out guests’ inner superstar fantasies
  • A sound system so you can play (or sing yourself) Bad Bunny’s hottest tracks
  • A tour of Bad Bunny’s favorite Miami stops
  • a recorded virtual greeting by Bad Bunny upon arrival

To honor the Puerto Rican community, Airbnb will make a one-time donation to the Fundación Good Bunny, which works to improve the quality of life in Puerto Rican youth through the support of youth arts and sports initiatives.

Those hoping to stay in Bad Bunny’s big rig should note that this stay’s rules require following applicable local, state, and federal rules and guidelines as well as Airbnb’s COVID-19 Safety Practices, which will include wearing a mask and practicing social distancing when required by local laws or guidelines. On-site staff will also comply with local rules and guidelines while on-site and will abide by our five-step enhanced cleaning process.

Guests are responsible for their own travel to and from Miami and for any travel and lodging to attend the concert.

NFT.NYC ROUNDUP

NFTs are unique assets that cannot be replaced by any other programs, often checked and stored with blockchain technology. They can incorporate anything from music to a website domain. The current modern craze is all around digital art. This time 360 Magazine attended one of the largest NFT conferences in North America, NFT.NYC. This was a three-day event, featuring more than five hundred speakers from the crypto, blockchain, and NFT communities.

NFT.NYC 2021

NFT.NYC takes place in New York City. This is the third year running for the conference. We are elevated to attend and participate in this technological ceremony which anticipates the future of artistic creation and shopping. This event has gathered thousands of professionals in the field of NFT and had a 3-day commitment for the showcase and seminar. NFT is now being used in a wide range of scenarios, including art, travel, food, game, etc. As a result, the speakers are from all kinds of industries, We met 3LAU, who is a DJ from Las Vegas, Jan Bodden, who is an NFT gamer, and Gary Vee who is the CEO of VaynerX.

360 MAGAZINE covers NFT.NYC

Spotlight Speaker: Gary Vee

Gary Vee is a Belarusian-American entrepreneur. He is well known for being the co-founder of the restaurant reservation software company Resy. Now, he is one of the pioneers in promoting and supporting the NFT. He has 2.5 million followers on Twitter, many of whom have been initiated into blockchain and NFT through his NFT – Vee Friends collection. It was a great pleasure to have the opportunity to meet him and hear his opinion on NFT.

While he is one of the earliest figures who has been investing and collecting the NFTs, he says that sometimes the technology can go over his head. Instead of focusing heavily on technology, he is more interested in how NFT will help and change people’s daily life. He is optimistic about the future of NFT, however, he still has his concern. He thinks that people are paying too much attention to the value and financial benefit NFT can bring while they ignore the importance of developing NFT itself as a product.

Alma Jimenez: Women in NFTs

Alma Jimenez is a Mexican American artist based out of New York. Alma recently made her own presentation at NFT NYC. Throughout the presentation, she introduces herself and her journey through the space of NFTs. In 2008, Alma funded the Vj Deliria project which is her longest art project to date. Through the project, Alma explores video art and glitch aesthetics. Alma’s NFTs are a reflection of the traditions that represent her heritage. Through Alma’s long term Vj Deliria project, she has been able to meet with a wide range of artists that have been able to help expand her art. Alma has now begun migrating to the metaverse with a mindset of building community, and specifically bringing the Latin American community with her on these new pursuits.

The first exhibition that Alma did in the metaverse was the Latin American Graffiti exhibition that featured a graffiti artist collective from Mexico City. The opening reception of the exhibition was featured in Clubhouse so that a group of artists could meet up in the metaverse and walk the gallery as one. From this first exhibition alone, Alma gathered over twenty-three artists to participate in this new coming of age metaverse experience.

In the following weeks of this exhibition, Alma was invited by Chile’s Ministry of Culture, Art and Heritage to talk about NFTs and crypto art, and the role that they play as a creative economy. Alma knew that she wanted to share this opportunity with other remarkable artists from Chile that were also creating in the NFT space. This exhibition that featured other distinguished Chilean artists was called Chile Diverso NFT. Following this crucial exhibition, they created an Opensea Collection, Oncyber gallery and Cryptovoxels exhibition. The next exhibition Alma curated is called NFTribu, which also translates to NFTribe. The exhibition is nomadic, and the groups move from galleries between differing metaverses. This unique exhibition showcases NFT art that is inspired by Pre-Columbian cultures, indigenous and native people from Latin America. The exhibition is ongoing, and Alma is always in search of more art to add to the exhibition.

Danny Cole: A Prodigy in Creature World

Danny Cole is a 21 years old American painter and interdisciplinary artist from New York City. He attended the NFT.NYC as one of the youngest artists with his art assembles Creature World.

There’s a real beauty in entering those alternative states, like dreaming.” He has achieved 26.3k trade-in volume on the biggest NFT trade market Opensea which has a net worth value of over one hundred million dollars. As a result, his works have even been mentioned with the same breath as Keith Haring.

NFT: Merging Verses

The future of fashion is the merging of two verses, the virtual world (metaverse) and the physical world. 360 Magazine this time was delighted to be the media partner of the NFT Project “Merging Verses”. We have launched this NFT at Paradise Club in Times Square Edition. Standing with the idea of women in NFT, we had our after-party featuring our NFT producer Bee Davies who is the founder of Hive Global Media. Paradise Club is an imaginative, chaotic, and highly productive show venue that fits perfectly in Times Square. With its colorful dancefloor and the wonderful performance of DJ RICH GREENE, it was such a huge success, and we were looking forward to our next collaboration! Along with this merge of spaces with NFTS, we are interested to see the trajectory and ultimate impact of NFTs in long-term culture. How will NFTs ultimately influence the way that society consumes food, purchases automobiles or even how we choose to travel? NFTs have already began becoming emerged into our everyday lives and can even change the way we decorate our homes. This integration of NFTs into our society and mainstream culture is something that we are interested in and curious to learn more about.

Nicky Jam Is Seduced By Temptation On His New Single Miami

Available on all digital music platforms

One of the greatest urban-music pioneers, Nicky Jam, unveils his new single Miami, a song that defines the limits of temptation in a long-lived relationship. Could Nicky Jam resist? To find out, fans will be able to enjoy their idol’s new music video on YouTube.

On many occasions, relationships are put to the test by the intervention of third parties, and this is what the new Nicky Jam’s song “Miami” is all about. A very common life story in which a man is tempted to betray his partner with another girl who represents something new, different, and forbidden.

The song has A-class producers such as Dj Luian, Mambo Kingz, and Neneto, under the wings of the record label La Industria INC/Sony Music Latin.

Miami premiers with its official music video, an unprecedented audio-visual production. The video is full of emotion and bright colors, under the lens of the master of urban genre music videos, Jessy Terrero.

“I think that all my fans are going to love this song. It’s all about real-life experiences. Those that can really connect you with the audience, because, unfortunately, heartbreaks are more common than happy endings,” said Nicky Jam.

The videoclip was produced by Cinema Giants INC, and as expected, it was recorded in the city of Miami, Florida. Filmmaker Jessy Terrero did not miss the opportunity to show off the best landscapes in the city, including luxurious balconies overlooking the ocean and bold Miami-style streets where nightlife is the real protagonist.

Listen to “Miami” by Nicky Jam today on your favorite digital music platform.

About Nicky Jam:

Nick Rivera Caminero, known as Nicky Jam, is recognized around the world as a pioneer of Latin urban music. At the age of 11, he recorded his first album …Distinto A Los Demás (Different from the Rest), which attracted the attention of DJs and artists in Puerto Rico.

As a young adult, Nicky Jam quickly rose to the top of his genre with radio hits including “Yo No Soy Tu Marido (I’m Not Your Husband),” “Me Voy Pa’l Party (I’m Leaving for the Party),” “Fiel A Tu Piel (Faithful to Your Skin)” and “La Combi Completa (The Complete Package),” among others. He toured the world and became one of Latin urban music’s first international stars. He was obligated to stop his music career for three years because of some serious personal problems. In 2013, he relaunched with a new image, coming back stronger than ever. He notched five radio hits: “Piensas en ME (You Think About Me),” “Curiosidad,” “Juegos Prohibidos (Forbidden Games),” “Voy a Beber (I’m Going to Drink)” and the global chart-topper, “Travesuras (Mischief).”

In February 2015, Nicky Jam teamed up with Enrique Iglesias to release “El Perdón (Forgiveness)”, his most internationally acclaimed single to date. Tallying over one million YouTube views on the day of its release, “El Perdón” was #1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart for 30 weeks (second longest-running single in the chart’s history). In January 2016, Nicky released “Hasta el Amanecer (Until Dawn),” which gave him the biggest Latin song of the year for the second consecutive year.

In 2017 Nicky Jam released “El Amante (The Lover)” and his very first solo album Fénix. The single “El Amante” quickly became an international hit, reaching 7x platinum, while the album went 11x platinum. The same year, he made his acting debut in the Vin Diesel blockbuster XXX: Return of Xander Cage.

In 2018 he earned three Latin GRAMMY nominations and appeared on the all-star remix of “Te Bote (I Dumped You),” whose video became the most watched on YouTube in any genre during 2018. Additionally, Nicky Jam had the honor of recording and performing “Live It Up,” featuring Will Smith and Era Istrefi, for the official soundtrack of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

His autobiographical series El Ganador (The Winner) premiered on Netflix at the end of 2019, as well as his album Íntimo.

Nicky Jam returned to the big screen in early 2020 with a role in Bad Boys for Life, starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. His most recent single “Fan de tus Fotos” has generated great impact in the music industry, garnering more than 25 million views within a month of its release.
