Bhad Bhabie – Miss Understood

From viral sensation to multi-platinum hip-hop phenomenon, 18-year-old Danielle Bregoli (aka Bhad Bhabie) is a true 21st century star, known worldwide for her mischievous flow, razor-sharp wordplay, and unstoppable charisma. With over a billion global streams thus far, the Florida born rapper has emerged as a landmark talent.

Today Bhad Bhabie returns to the music scene with sizzling visuals for her lead single “Miss Understood.” Directed by Tiny Tapes and Orazio and filmed in Los Angeles the high energy video will be featured on her forthcoming EP.

Amidst an aesthetic of neon lights, blurry screens, paparazzi and dollar bills, the video’s opening finds the rapper donning a dominatrix like outfit and welcoming fans into her world to share a story about love, haters and decadence. She says, “the video for Miss Understood has some fire sexy looks and a real intimate feel. It’s definitely a new kind of video for me.”

Co-written by London Jae (Beyonce, Rihanna, Cardi B) and produced by Go Grizzly (Future, Nicki Minaj, Kehlani) the song’s hook “They say I’m trouble, but maybe I’m just misunderstood…” seems apropos for the star who sometimes finds herself in hot water for being so outspoken. This time Bhad Bhabie has channeled all her passionate energy into creating a new more mature sound while continuing to carve out her own niche in the hip hop world. “I’ve definitely evolved with my sound. My new music is less gimmicky, I feel like a lot of my old music was kinda childish. I was young, I was 14 and 15. Now I’m 18 and I’m definitely going to show that I’m more mature with my content and delivery.”

With her increasing catalogue of chart-busting hits, social media triumphs, and seemingly non-stop artistic growth, Bhad Bhabie is unquestionably one of today’s most successful new superstars. She has catapulted herself from a meme to a globally recognized influencer and artist boasting over 1.5 billion global streams. She seamlessly moves between worlds of social justice and sexy, with a massive OnlyFans account and she also made headlines this year speaking out against Turn About Ranch and the “troubled teen industry.”

Having previously collaborated with heavyweights Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Yachty, City Girls and Lil Baby and more. With this new project she hopes with this project her listeners can finally get a feel for who she is as a woman, artist and human being. Whether she’s talking about relationships, finances, breakups or the glow up, Bhad Bhabie is letting her ingenuity manifest itself. It’s the way she speaks, dresses and creates.

Breakthrough singer, songwriter and musician Joy Oladokun’s new deluxe album, in defense of my own happiness (complete), is out today via Amigo Records/Verve Forecast/Republic Records. The special extended edition includes all 14 tracks from her major label debut, in defense of my own happiness, as well as the ten additional songs from her self-released 2020 record, in defense of my own happiness (the beginnings), and one new track, judas.

In celebration of the new music, Oladokun will be featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered” this afternoon speaking with host Ari Shapiro, and recently made her debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert performing sunday from Nashville’s newly opened National Museum of African American Music. 

Released last month via Amigo Records/Verve Forecast/Republic Records, in defense of my own happiness finds Oladokun forging her own path, sharing the unique perspective she’s gained from living in today’s world as a black, queer woman and first-generation child of Nigerian immigrants. Born in Arizona and now living in Nashville, her musical exploration began at age ten when she was inspired to learn guitar after seeing a video of Tracy Chapman—the first time she’d ever seen a black woman play the instrument. 

Recently named one of the “Best Albums of 2021 So Far” by Rolling Stone and Variety, and one of Billboard’s “Best Albums by LGBTQ Artists of 2021 So Far,” in defense of my own happiness features special collaborations with Maren Morris (Bigger Man), Jensen McRae (wish you the best) and Penny & Sparrow (heaven from here) and continues to receive widespread critical praise: 

“She has a remarkable ability to distill how forces at work in the world…she can make even social and political protest feel like an intimate, warmly human act”—NPR Music 

“a serious talent with a kind of low-key, casual ease…she’s always seeking out the light to point the way, making for one of the year’s most uplifting listens.”—Rolling Stone 

“one of the hottest new singer-songwriters making music…surgical songwriting and soulful vocals that will send chills down your spine on each repeat listen.”—Billboard

“Joy Oladokun is a rare talent who manages to dissect Christianity, queerness, race and mental wellness with a delicate yet determined touch”—Vogue

“Oladokun’s message is not only timely, but essential.”—them.

“a stunning major label debut…any Nashville musician worth their salt should be pinching themselves to work with Oladokun, among the most exciting talents this city has seen in years.”—The Tennessean

“the rising singer-songwriter proves her worth as a master storyteller”—American Songwriter

Furthering her breakout year, Oladokun will tour throughout the fall including upcoming performances at Newport Folk Festival, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, and Austin City Limits as well as several dates supporting Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit and Dermot Kennedy. 

Oladokun has continued to receive widespread attention in the past year, including recent performances of album track, breathe again, on NBC’s TODAY and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The song also received a key placement on NBC’s This Is Us, propelling the track to reach #3 on Shazam’s U.S. Top 200 while also charting globally. Additionally, Oladokun has been named a member of the inaugural #YouTubeBlack Voices Class of 2021, an NPR Music/Slingshot’s 2021 Artists to Watch, a Billboard LGBTQ Artist of the Month, Spotify’s RADAR US: Artists to Watch 2021, Amazon Music’s Artists to Watch 2021 and Vogue’s #1 New LGBTQ Artists to Listen to Now, and was recently highlighted as part of HULU’s “Your Attention Please: The Concert ” alongside 24kGoldn, Kiana Ledé, Lil Yachty, and Swae Lee. In addition to This Is Us, her music has been featured on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, ABC’s Station 19 and NBC’s America’s Got Talent.

Lil Yachty – Love Music

LIL YACTHY RELEASES NEW SINGLE LOVE MUSIC WATCH THE VISUALIZER HERE STREAM HERE

Today Lil Yachty has shared his newest track Love Music via Quality Control / Motown. The laid-back single is his first release following his highly praised Michigan Boy Boat mixtape. On Love Music the ever-versatile rapper takes a turn from the rapid-fire, off kilter delivery of his latest body of work. The track yet again demonstrates a new side of Yachty backed by alt-pop production, showcasing his melodic prowess and story-telling abilities. The release is accompanied by a visualizer of the single’s artwork.

After dropping the last chapter to his Lil Boat trilogy in 2020 with Lil Boat 3 (and subsequent deluxe album LB3.5), Lil Yachty entered 2021 soaring with his mixtape Michigan Boy Boat. The tape was a homage to the emerging Michigan rap scene and was packed with features from fast rising midwest rappers. Lil Yachty is keeping busy this year, working on a new series for HBO Max based on the card game UNO, releasing his cryptocurrency YachtyCoin, partnering with Reese’s Puffs Cereal, and promoting his new unisex nail-paint line Crete.

LIL YACHTY – MICHIGAN BOY BOAT

LIL YACHTY ANNOUNCES APRIL 23 RELEASE OF MICHIGAN BOY BOAT, REVEALS ARTWORK

WATCH THE TRAILER FOR THE MIXTAPE SPOTLIGHTING MICHIGAN RAPPERS HERE

Today Lil Yachty reveals the artwork and April 23 release date for his highly-anticipated mixtape “Michigan Boy Boat.” Featuring rappers from Detroit and Flint, Yachty unveiled a behind-the-scenes trailer filmed in the Great Lake State.

WATCH HERE.

Lil Yachty has long been collaborating with Michiganders. Since his 2017 Tee Grizzley collaboration “From the D to the A,” Yachty has been featured on songs with Michigan artists Sada BabyYN JayRNC Mike, and Krispylife Kitdd–and these were only primers.

“Yachty’s upcoming mixtape, Michigan Boy Boat, is an ode to the state where a new crop of MCs is currently restitching the fabric of modern hip-hop. It’s also a testament to one of the 23-year-old rapper’s greatest gifts: his ear for talent,” states Rolling Stone.

In February, Lil Yachty released a video for his song, “Royal Rumble,” which features six MCs from Michigan’s vibrant rap scenes. Along with Yachty, the song boasts Krispylife Kid, RMC Mike, Babyface Ray, Rio Da Yung OG and Icewear Vezzo.

Stereogum wrote of the song/video: “For the past few years, the Atlanta rap star Lil Yachty has been making tracks with the best rappers that the thriving Michigan underground has to offer. Yachty was arguably the first mainstream rapper to recognize the talent of people like Sada Baby and Rio Da Yung OG, and when he records tracks with guys like that, it usually brings out the best in him.” Pitchfork stated Yachty “always holds his own and makes everyone around him sound more motivated than usual.”

Lil Yachty has been busy. In between developing a heist movie based on the card game Uno, a series for HBO Max, diving into crypto currency, partnering with Reese’s Puffs cerealremixing the Saved by the Bell theme song, and becoming a favorite on TikTok, “hes a mentor and a mogul…”he’s become an elder statesman of a certain brand of young superstar — and something like the Gen Z answer to Diddy” (Rolling Stone).

Bankroll Freddie by DJ BRUCE BRUCE for 360 Magazine, by Quality Control/Motown Records and Ernest Dukes

BANKROLL FREDDIE x “ADD IT UP”

Rising Arkansas rapper Bankroll Freddie stays true to his name, counting up the stacks on his new hustler’s anthem “Add It Up, out today via Quality Control/Motown Records. Freddie’s first release since signing with Motown is a celebration of his success; he takes the occasion to flex the price of his new cars, neck-breaking jewelry, and designer clothes. The single arrives alongside a cinematic video that finds the rapper running countless cash through a money machine and speeding through his hometown of Helena, Arkansas.

Backed by haunting keys and thundering drums, Freddie catalogs every comma on this ominous trap banger. He raps with unshakeable confidence, his Southern drawl enhancing the nonchalance he shows in spending his pocket change. While Freddie celebrates leaving the streets for the industry, he delivers a flex in nearly every line: “40 on my AP / Wait until I cop the Lamb, gone make these niggas hate me.” Keenly aware of the envy he’ll inspire, Freddie asserts his place in the rap game with a confidence as impressive as his stacks of cash.

Add It Up” comes on the heels of Freddie’s 2020 debut album, From Trap to Rap, which boasted features from Lil BabyYoung DolphLil YachtyMoneybagg YoTay KeithRenni Rucci, and more. In May 2020, he released “Quarantine Flow”, a rapid-fire track that showed off his dextrous lyrical gifts. “Add It Up” is just the first of many 2021 tracks from one of Quality Control and Motown’s most promising talents.

TM88 – “Tokyo Nights”

TM88 RELEASES “TOKYO NIGHTS (FEAT. MADEINTYO)”

LISTEN HERE

MORE NEW MUSIC FROM TM88 COMING SOON 

Today, GRAMMY Award-nominated powerhouse producer, artist, DJ, and Taylor Gang affiliate TM88 drops “Tokyo Nights (feat. MadeinTYO).” Listen HERE.

The track comes in hot following TM88 producing “P2” off of Lil Uzi Vert’s  Billboard Top 200 number 1 album, Eternal Atake in addition to following up from TM88 & Smokepurpp’s joint single “RR.”

“Tokyo Nights (feat. MadeinTYO)” has a late-night cruising vibe to it. The track features fellow Atlanta native, MadeinTYO, known for his hit “Uber Everywhere,” rapping about the ladies and foreign cars encountered in a night out in Tokyo over TM88’s tranquil yet vigorous beats.

“I really wanted to bring the feel of a real Tokyo night to life racing through the neon light streets with a couple of beautiful women and just living the night of my life with my bro MadeinTYO,” says TM88.

The track came together organically at TM88’s home studio in LA when he was cooking up beats with all of his homeboys around -Southside, Travis Scott, Trinidad James, Sheck Wes, and Wheezy. TM88 recalls MadeinTYO pulled up and was ready to work after the duo already made 8 songs together that week. The rest was history. TM88 is a staple in the Atlanta trap scene and hip-hop.

As an artist he holds over 70 million streams and has collaborated with Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug, Future, Juicy J, Gunna, Moneybagg Yo, Wiz Khalifa, Project Pat, Lil Yachty, Valee and more. Under his belt, TM88 has production credits building an impressive discography of both superstars and rising rappers from Drake “Company”, to 21 Savage “Drip”, to Travis Scott “Nothing but Net” to the late XXXTENTACION “going down!”. Not to mention TM88’s somber infused beats are a key component to Lil Uzi Vert’s global smash-hit “XO Tour Llif3.”

The record is currently seven-times platinum certified from the RIAA. Cementing himself as a singular voice within Atlanta, TM88 maintains his position at the forefront of the pack. In fact, he does more than just influence the style of his hometown; he regularly pushes it to level up. He went from selling beats for $40 a pop at 12-years-old to co-founding 808 Mafia and eventually arriving as a solo musical force on the heels of a string of smashes.

“TM88 (is) serving as one of the hottest track makers in the industry now”

“(A) hitmaker”

“Atlanta’s finest” 

“The producer’s enchanting beats have served as the base to a plethora of hits along the years if you check the liner notes”
