Josh Johnson – Fallin’

The Daily Show writer, comedian, and artist Josh Johnson has shared “Fallin (With Groovebox & Jesse Cale),” the original work that bookends Trevor Noah Presents Josh Johnson: # (Hashtag), out September 30 via Comedy Central Records. 

“In a special about the world feeling like it’s in free fall, and a year that saw me plunged even deeper into the grip of an online rat race to belong and get attention, ‘Fallin’ is the perfect theme song,” says Johnson. “It’s about comparison and connection, about letting go without being gone and taking time to catch yourself. It was co-written by me and Groovebox, who lends his incredible vocals with a feature from Jesse Cale.”

Vulture named # (Hashtag) one of the ‘Best Comedy Specials of 2021’ saying, “the best representation so far of a comedy special that attempts to bridge what just happened with an effort to reincorporate that experience into the rest of life… Johnson’s cool, controlled, endearing stage presence is completely winning.”

Variety named Johnson a ‘Comic To Watch in 2021’ and The New York Times said, “Josh Johnson is a rising star” in covering his mistape,  Elusive and # (Hashtag). Johnson recently starred in “The Really Cool Converse Club” commercial directed by Tyler, The Creator.

Trevor Noah Presents Josh Johnson: #(Hashtag) is Executive Produced by Josh Johnson, Trevor Noah, Haroon Saleem, Bob Bain, Samantha Murphy, and Mainstay Entertainment’s Norm Aladjem, Derek Van Pelt, and Sanaz Yamin. Ryan Moran and Gabriella Yacyk are Executive Producers for MTV Entertainment Studios.

Johnson just crossed the 50-episode threshold of his podcast, The Josh Johnson Show, where he has freeform conversations about life, love, and comedy with his friend and fellow comedian Logan Nielsen.

half•alive – Make of It

Long Beach based trio half•alive released their new single “Make of It” along with the music video via RCA Records. Watch HERE. “Make of It” is written by half•alive and OJIVOLTA (Kanye West, Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, Halsey, Jon Bellion) and produced by OJIVOLTA. The video is directed by Emma Portner.

Josh Taylor from half•alive says, “as always, there’s so many stories that went into the making of this song. writing, production, etc. but there was one moment of clarity in the writing process one night that felt like the crux to unlock this very personal story of mine which became Make of It. That moment happened when our producer Mark (of OJIVOLTA) stared at me during one of our writing sessions & abruptly asked “do you ever get mad? if so, would a half•alive fan who doesn’t speak English be able to tell if you were just from your tone?” After thinking about the question for a while, I came to realize that there was an anger-sized hole missing in our songs. There were stories that I was restricting myself from writing because I wanted them to be perfectly processed, with happy endings to tie everything together. but sometimes the unprocessed, unhindered emotion is what the song needs. when that was realized, i turned on my mental faucet of unfiltered anger, 45 minutes later, the song was done.”

“Make of It” follows previously released tracks “Summerland,” “Time 2,” and “What’s Wrong” which came out earlier this year. “What’s Wrong,” which was “Most Added” at Alt Radio around its launch, had garnered over 12.2 million streams worldwide. half•alive also performed it on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! last month. Check it out HERE.

Additionally, the band is wrapping up a run of headlining west coast shows with a stop at The Wiltern in Los Angeles tonight and Life is Beautiful Music & Art Festival this Sunday. Next week, half•alive will be hitting the road with Twenty One Pilots on their almost sold out “Takeøver Tour” which starts in Denver, CO on September 22nd. Find the tour schedule HERE.

About half•alive

The music of half•alive breathes, evolves, grows, and changes alongside the lives of the Long Beach trio—Josh Taylor [vocals], Brett Kramer [drums], and J Tyler Johnson [bass]. half•alive officially came to life on the 2017 3 EP, which sparked a palpable buzz on the strength of “The Fall” and “Awake At Night”. Over the course of the next year, they crafted what became their massive breakout “still feel.” which has been RIAA certified Gold, rocketed into the Top 10 at Alt Radio and has over 276 million worldwide streams to date. The video organically surpassed the 10 million mark within two months as the song garnered acclaim from NPR’s coveted “All Songs Considered” and more. The trio sold out their formal debut headlining tour in 2019  which included 2 sold out shows at The Fonda Theatre in LA. The tour also included stops at major music festivals including Lollapalooza, Outside Lands and Bumbershoot. Later that year the band made their late night television debut with a very special performance of “still feel.” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. Check out the incredible and unique performance HERE. They also performed “Runaway” on The Late Late Show with James Corden. In August 2019, they released their debut album Now, Not Yet which has amassed over 472 million worldwide audio streams to date. half•alive was named YouTube’s Artist on the Rise and their live Vevo DSCVR performances of “RUNAWAY” and “arrow” showcase their incredible creative artistry.

Tay Money – The Assignment

Tay Money flexes on a fiery new track entitled “The Assignment”. Fueled by a skittering bounce, Tay eases into her confident and charismatic bars with an announcement, “I understood the assignment”. Ahead of its release, the track has already made its rounds on TikTok with over 280K videos and climbing. 

“The Assignment” is available now at all digital retailers. Listen HERE.

Tay Money upholds her red-hot streak this summer. In July, she made her U.S. major festival debut with a standout set at Rolling Loud Miami, bringing the crowd to its feet. “The Assignment” arrives on the heels of a string of summer anthems including tracks “Shake” and “Asthma Pump” which both feature the unfiltered lyrics and attitude that have made the Dallas artist one to watch. Having been featured on the digital cover of ELEVATOR, and hailed by FLAUNT as “one of the hardest female rappers of our generation,” Tay’s in the midst of a hot streak that stretches back to the release of Blockedt. She made that EP with heavyweights like Derrick Milano (a co-writer on Megan Thee Stallion’s “Hot Girl Summer”) and Bankroll Got It (producers of hits like “DO DAT” by Stunna 4 Vegas featuring DaBaby & Lil Baby)—collaborations that fed into the boundary-pushing energy of her tracks since. “Shake” showcases an exciting new side of Tay’s style, highlighting her ability to craft emotionally stirring songs while still sticking to her favorite topic―flaunting her assets.

About Tay Money

In just over two years, Tay Money, the Athens-born, Dallas-based rapper has racked up millions of views and streams thanks to her witty punchlines and unique musical approach. Her debut song, “Na Na” marked the beginning of her career as an artist and set the tone for the originality that she would bring to the rest of her records to come. Within months of her first release, she was selling out shows in Dallas and had gained a cult-like following among her listeners (now dubbed Tay Army). 

With her bouncy trap beats, unmistakable Texas twang, and unapologetically catchy rhymes, Tay began to reach commercial success with her breakout song “Trapper’s Delight” in 2018. With what was originally a risky move to expand her music outside the limits of her hometown of Dallas, the video for “Trapper’s Delight” amassed over 1.1 million views in under two months. Since then, she’s continued to release many more viral hits including “Bussin” (11 million YouTube views), “Bussin 2.0” with Saweetie (7 million YouTube views), and “Brat” featuring Mulatto, two of which are on her recently released EP, Blockedt. The widely acclaimed project led to many defining moments for Tay, landing spots on coveted playlists including Spotify’s New Music Friday, Feelin Myself, and Release Radar as well as Apple Music’s The Plug and New In Hip Hop. The project also received praise from FLAUNT who hailed her as “one of the biggest women rappers in Texas”, SPIN who noted that she was “one of the biggest women rappers in Texas”, and ELEVATOR who named her their February cover star. Now, with the cosigns of some of the biggest up-and-coming female rappers, and having surpassed the milestone of over 100 million U.S. streams, Tay plans to build on her momentum with her forthcoming EP.

Tokischa × Rosalia – Linda

Tokischa and Rosalia’s new hit single “Linda,” has been trending, with the music video becoming #1 in the world. Here’s what people are writing. 

Mitu said, “Tokischa & Rosalía’s Worlds Collide in a flirty and fierce club banger. “A hard-hitting [but] vibrant and bouncy new single… dropped [with] a stylish music video filmed in the Dominican Republic” wrote Complex. “To no one’s surprise, it’s an absolute bop from start to finish that showcases the talent of both women while delivering something fresh and an equally noteworthy sound” raved Remezcla. Consequence stated, “The Spanish superstar and polarizing Dominican up-and-comer… deliver a snappy, sexy number…  and steamy music video…that’s as uncompromising as the musicians themselves.”

“Rosalía and Tokischa vindicate ‘uncomfortable’ feminism in their new song, Linda,”  El Mundo stated. 

Many more publications have been speaking very highly of this dance banger. You can find the song HERE and watch the music video HERE

About Tokischa

Tokischa is a rising talent who deconstructs the perceptions and norms surrounding women’s roles. Her style is raw, authentic trap that few artists dare to pursue. In her world, there is no fear of showing society what she does, what she likes and who she is. She promotes a way of life that’s free from hypocrisy and gender stereotypes. Her vocal tone is instantly identifiable and is another major factor in making her songs distinctive. 

About Rosalia

Rosalia is a Grammy & Eight-Time Latin Grammy Winner who has quickly “leapt to the forefront of the global pop landscape” on the strength of her innovative musical fusions and distinctive style.  She has repeatedly shattered barriers for both female and Spanish language artists, while being widely hailed as: “a complicated geniusreflecting femininity and strength… a new generation leader… making Flamenco a global phenomenon… while becoming Earth’s Most Exciting Pop Star.” With the May 2018 release of Rosalía’s innovative breakthrough single “Malamente (Cap.1: Augurio)”-and the fall arrival of her landmark album “El Mal Querer,” fans worldwide quickly embraced Rosalía’s phenomenal vocal capability meshed with her now fully realized fusion of classic Flamenco and other timeless music styles of Spain, with R&B, hip-hop, contemporary Latin-American rhythms and electronic beats. Coupled with Rosalía’s strong influences from industrial visual arts, female empowerment, fashion and choreography, it became clear to critics that: “El Mal Querer is a boundary-breaking modern masterpiece… that has resonated like a shockwave… it stands out from virtually everything else on the global pop landscape.” As a result of the album’s long-running impact, and additional 2019 singles that followed, Rosalia garnered a GRAMMY Award, standout GRAMMY performance, the historic first-ever Best New Artist Grammy nomination for a Spanish Language artist, and eight Latin Grammys, including Album of the Year. Additional acclaim has included two MTV VMA’s, multiple magazine covers-including the annual Sunday New York Times Magazine’s special Culture Cover, highly praised Coachella and Lollapalooza festival appearances, the most watched global YouTube video of 2019 for a female artist, and “Best Music of the Decade” picks from Rolling Stone, Billboard, GQ, The LA Times, Pitchfork and more. While Rosalía has spent a large majority of the last year immersed in the creative process of writing and recording her eagerly-awaited next album, she also finalized landmark brand partnerships with Nike and MAC’s “Viva Glam” campaign, lead the field of LATIN GRAMMY winners for the second year in a row, joined Travis Scott, Bad Bunny, the Weeknd and Billie Eilish all on massive streaming collaborative tracks, and became the first-ever all-Spanish language music artist to grace the cover of VOGUE in the United States, with the unveiling of the January 2021 “Vogue Values” issue, photographed by Annie Leibovitz. Now, Rolling Stone has already declared her upcoming next full-length release as “One of the Most Anticipated Albums of the Year.”

Lana Love – Loaded Gun

Upcoming alt-pop sensation Lana Love has shared her newest single and music video “Loaded Gun.” Backed by a choir of electric and acoustic guitars, Lana’s single underscores the internal battle she faces within herself, as the different sides of her identity are at odds with each other. Fans can watch the music video for “Loaded Gun,” premiering now on Aesthetic Magazine, HERE.

On the new single, Lana shares, “If Post Malone and Lady Gaga (Joanne era) had a song baby, she would be “Loaded Gun”. Production-wise, every element was live recorded from analog to digital. The trap beat was created with trigger pulls, spinning spurs, a 1960s saloon piano, Post Malone inspired 808s, an anti-chorus ear-gasm, and original background vocals we kept in from the demo I recorded in my bedroom. I truly believe Matt Genovese is the only producer who could’ve accomplished this sound in the way he did.”

She continues, “This song is about shooting yourself in the foot just when things start to get good. We all have a dark side that gets to us sometimes—a classic self-sabotage story. The lyrics shine a light on that self-defeating behavior pattern in faith that we have power to change the narrative of who wins.”

The music video for “Loaded Gun” conjures up images of classic western films with a space age twist, finding Lana as a lone ranger in a desert and battling a dark hologram of herself.

“The music video was heavily inspired by my pandemic-induced Star Wars/Mandalorian binge,” Lana admits.

Fans can pre-save “Loaded Gun” ahead of its release tomorrow HERE

Lana Love has announced that her self-titled EP will be released on October 1. Completely self-owned, this EP will share the story of Lana’s turbulent experience in the music industry featuring a plethora of genre shifts, fervent heartbreak, and medical stress.

Every once in a blue moon an artist emerges with an undeniable arsenal of talents and embarrassment of riches, and such is the case with contemporary pop artist Lana Love. The Atlanta-born juggernaut fully embodies the spirit of being multifaceted as a singer, songwriter, classically trained pianist/musician, trained dancer, actor and burgeoning entrepreneur.

About Lana Love

The genesis for Lana‘s musical journey started in Naples, Florida as a precocious 4-year old who was obsessed with Andrew Lloyd Weber’s iconic “Phantom of The Opera” and started playing the song, “Music of the Night,” by ear on piano in her living room. From that auspicious beginning, Lana has been immersed in honing and expressing her artistry in every medium available. By age 7, she had written her first song. She later studied music at the University of Florida and the American Music Theater and Dramatic Academy in New York.

In her late teens, she was featured in several musical productions as a singer/actor/dancer produced by Disney and Nickelodeon that were presented internationally in over 20 countries throughout Europe. Back in the US she has amassed a number of television credits on programs that were broadcast by HBO, Warner Brothers, Discovery Channel, YouTube and Telemundo. She has also opened for mega rappers like Snoop Dogg and Wu Tang Clan, among others, dabbled in EDM and been a featured guest artist on RAF MC’s Latin dance track, “Baila.”

Currently, Lana is the epitome of a female entrepreneur in a male-dominated field. Between finally owning 100% of her masters and joining the ranks alongside the few women that have broken the digital currency barrier with an NFT venture on the horizon, Lana is a lyricist for the Netflix documentary Malinche, written by Nacho Cano and orchestrated by Hans Zimmer.

An entrepreneur and businesswoman at heart, Lana Love’s story continues to exponentially blossom. She is spreading the one message she holds most dearly: everything, absolutely everything, is LOVE.

Young Franco × Golden Vessel – Underneath

Following a near perfect run of singles under a reformed, hip hop dance sound recruiting the likes of rap mogul Denzel Curry, SonReal and rising star Jalmar, Young Franco returns to his indie roots, collaborating with close friend Golden Vessel for new single, “Underneath”. Listen HERE

Young Franco’s career highlights include Apple Advertising Campaigns, support from Zane Lowe and hosting new MTV series, “Back and Beyond” with Thandi Phoenix, “Underneath” acts as an ode to the incredible, feel good alternative sound that established his core early fanbase. 

“Underneath” oozes timelessness, highlighting Young Franco’s ability to shift sounds and genres, while keeping his cornerstone value of quality dance cross over production. Across its just under 4-minute run time, Golden Vessel’s ominous vocals shimmer amidst a cocktail of production flare from Franco. A wobbly bassline combines perfectly with softly tapped piano chords, creating the underbed for a sway worthy alt-pop ballad. As the synth line takes care of the melodic elements in the track’s breakdown, a melancholic ambience is created, channeling the perfect moment for reflection in these unstable times.

On the creation of the track, Golden Vessel stated, “To me it feels like it’s about that corny moment at a music festival or a concert where you’ve spotted someone a couple of times and you lock eyes with them. Your favorite band is playing, and you feel really connected with this stranger even though you know nothing about them.”

About Young Franco

The Young Franco project is currently sitting perched above the clouds, with career highlights being ticked off with every subsequent release. Most recently he collaborated with Filipino-Canadian Director Khrysta Lloren a.k.a NOFAC3 for the music video for Come Thru (feat. SonReal & Jalmar), which premiered via Flaunt. His 2020 single, “Fallin Apart” featuring Denzel Curry and Pell took the already glowing artist to angelic levels. The single received a full addition on Triple J, as well as radio spins globally, and featured on publications such as Clash Magazine, NME, Out Now Magazine, Colors, Sniffers, Happy Mag, Acclaim, Purple Sneakers, Pilerats and more. The track also featured as the soundtrack for Apple’s Airpod ‘Jump’ campaign which has received nearly 10 million views on Youtube and was premiered during the Grammys broadcast.

Rich Gang – Blue Emerald

Rich Gang is back! Cash Money Records co-founder and GRAMMY® Award-nominated rap icon Bryan “Baby” Williams a.k.a. Birdman has joined forces with GRAMMY® Award-winning multi-platinum superstar Young Thug on a new single entitled Blue Emerald. Get it HERE.

The track fuses otherworldly production with a UFO-style buzz as Young Thug slithers through the beat with eerie melodies. It all builds toward a massive and magnetic chant meant to blast off into the fall. 

“This is what y’all have been waiting for,” Birdman says.  “Me and Thugger are back together, and ‘Blue Emerald’ is just the beginning. This is the next era of Rich Gang. It starts now.”

This notably marks the return of Rich Gang—the ever-evolving hip-hop brand and collective founded by Birdman. 2013’s compilation album, Rich Gang, crashed the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 and yielded the gold-selling Hot 100 hit “Tap Out,” featuring Lil Wayne, Birdman, Mack Maine, Nicki Minaj, and Future. Riding this momentum, Rich Gang delivered the multi-platinum smash “Lifestyle” [feat. Young Thug, Rich Homie Quan, & Birdman] and the historic mixtape, Rich Gang: Tha Tour Part 1. The latter project claimed spots on numerous best of the decade lists, including ones by Noisey, Stereogum, and Rolling Stone. Stereogum hailed it as “a classic of 2010s rap music.”

The music video premiered on BET Jams, BET Hip Hop, Vevo and YouTube with Music Choice and Revolt on August 27th at Midnight (12:00 am ET / 9:00 pm PT). Watch it HERE.
