Rvssian – Only The Team

PLATINUM CERTIFIED PRODUCER RVSSIAN RELEASES NEW SINGLE “ONLY THE TEAM”

WATCH NOW!

Platinum-certified producer and artist, Rvssian has today released a new song “Only One Team” featuring young hitmakers Lil Tjay and Lil Mosey. The single has all the makings of a hit single with its synth laced beats and Rvssian’s pension for addictive melodies. “Only One Team” is a departure from Rvssian’s usual dancehall and Latin trap sounds but an evolution of the work he’s done following past collaborations with French Montana, Cardi B, 21 Savage and more. The song follows previously released single “IDKW” featuring Shenseea, Swae Lee and Young Thug and appears on his label Rich Immigrants, a joint venture with Interscope Records. Speaking more on the making of the song, Rvssian had this to share:

“This song is a new sound, coming from Lil TJay’s past music with added rock influence in the guitar production and his unique flow and melodies. Bringing in Lil Mosey and his signature cadence make the whole thing certified.” Lil Mosey added “Rvssian and I have been talkin’ about getting a song together for a min. Me and Tjay both young and getting money so it’s a dope moment for our generation.”

About Rvssian

Tarik “Rvssian” Johnston, a young Uptown kid from Kingston, Jamaica started his music career at just 16 years old. He established his independent label Head Concussion Records and began producing. An ear for platinum hit-making sounds, Rvssian’s success knows no border or genre lines. His catalog has surpassed over four billion streams across platforms with multiple of those becoming certified platinum hits. He has successfully pioneered the dancehall and Latin music spaces and is now looking to take over the mainstream worlds of pop, hip hop and rap. Now at home at his new label, Rich Immigrants (a joint venture with Interscope Records) Rvssian puts on his executive hat to help break artists who live in the Caribbean diaspora towards mainstream popularity. Shenseea, Jamaica’s reigning princess of Dancehall, is the first artist signed to the label and she is joined by Kosa and Big Bvng (childhood friends from Belize). Rvssian also continues to experiment with his own music releasing one-off singles that continue to place him in the cultural zeitgeist of music and on the charts.

Alec Wigdahl × “Cologne”

SINGER/SONGWRITER ALEC WIGDAHL PREMIERES NEW SINGLE “COLOGNE”

Today, Minnesota-bred singer/songwriter Alec Wigdahl shares a brutally honest but infectious new single called “Cologne.” Released via Internet Money Records / 10K Projects, “Cologne” finds the 19-year-old artist taking on a more beat-driven and dynamic pop sound — a perfect backdrop to his airy vocals and romantically tortured lyrics. Check out “Cologne” HERE

Produced by Wigdahl along with Internet Money founder Taz Taylor, Nick Mira (A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Kevin Gates, Juice WRLD), and OkTanner, “Cologne” marks a major departure from the stripped-down sonic palette of Strawberry— Wigdahl’s debut EP for Internet Money Records / 10K Projects, released last December. Despite its more elaborate production, “Cologne” offers up the same raw emotion that Wigdahl has always brought to his songwriting. As Wigdahl explains, that fearless honesty ultimately serves as a vehicle for personal connection.

“I love the kind of songs that are incredibly specific to the artist’s life, but when you listen it hits you right in the chest — almost like it’s happening to you,” says Wigdahl. “In my own music, I try to be as personal and vulnerable as I possibly can, so that everyone can feel like the song was made for them. I want them to feel like I’m narrating their story at the same time that I’m narrating mine.”

Based in L.A. but originally from outside Minneapolis, Wigdahl took up songwriting at the age of 15, initially using music as a form of therapy. After teaching himself to play guitar by watching videos of his favorite musicians, he put out a self-produced EP called On My Mind his senior year of high school. Upon graduating he headed to Boston to study at Berklee College of Music, but quickly dropped out and returned home to enroll at the University of Minnesota, compelled to continue with his D.I.Y. approach to music. Those instincts proved to be right on target when the Internet Money team reached out to Wigdahl after discovering his songs on social media. By the end of last summer, Wigdahl had signed his deal with 10K Projects and soon set to work on Strawberry.

Max Leone x CAUTIOUS

THE DARKROOM’S MAX LEONE SHARES “CAUTIOUS”

“burgeoning pop star”–Billboard

“smooth vocals and sticky melodies”–Paper

“gooey and dark but also incredibly catchy”–Alt Citizen

Today, rising songwriter-producer, Max Leone, shares his second single “Cautious” via Darkroom Records. Showcasing a darker side to his unique songwriting, “Cautious” captivates the listener from the onset with smooth guitar lines over a buzzing synth bassline and choppy vocals. Listen and watch the video, premiered earlier today by Billboard and directed by Clyde Munroe in collaboration with Max HERE.

“Cautious'” is out now via Darkroom Records, buy/stream it here.

Says Max of the track, “Cautious is about isolating yourself from the world in an attempt to protect yourself from it, but ultimately discovering that the beauty and meaning in life are often derived through its discomfort.”

“Cautious” is the follow-up to Leone’s debut single “First Grade” which garnered early praise from Paper Mag, the BBC, KCRW, Alt Citizen and more. Defined by soulful, acoustic-led songwriting with left-of-center production choices, Leone’s music calls to mind King Princess, Cautious Clay, or the DIY pop intelligence of Omar Apollo.

Picking up the guitar at age 7, Leone quickly developed a passion for playing and began experimenting with the violin, drums, and piano. Countless after school hours spent practicing, composing, playing in jazz bands, learning production via YouTube and pumping out remixes on Soundcloud eventually led him to attend the prestigious Berklee College Of Music as a guitar principal. After one year, Leone left to pursue music full-time in Los Angeles.

Leone’s forthcoming EP tells his story of navigating a new city alone while chasing a potentially far-fetched dream. Threaded throughout the project are themes of self-doubt, nostalgia, and coping with keeping up appearances on social media while still building real-life connections in a new place.

Becky Hill x U.S. Live Debut

U.K. ARTIST BECKY HILL MAKES HER U.S. LIVE DEBUT WITH AN ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCE AT NYC’S MERCURY LOUNGE ON APRIL 9

LYRIC VIDEO FOR “BETTER OFF WITHOUT YOU” Ft. SHIFT K3Y OUT NOW – VIEW HERE

HILL HAS AMASSED OVER ONE BILLION STREAMS AND CHARTED SEVEN TOP 40 HITS IN UK

Chart-topping U.K. artist Becky Hill will make her U.S. live debut with an intimate, acoustic performance at Mercury Lounge in New York City on Thursday, April 9. BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac has called her “one of the finest voices in pop music today.” With over a billion streams and 20 million Spotify monthly listeners, Hill is now the 2nd most listened to British female artist on Spotify in the U.K. Tickets for this special performance are available HERE.

“IM PLAYING MY FIRST AMERICAN SHOW!! NEW YORK!!” says Hill. “UR in for a treat at the Mercury Lounge as I’ll be playing an intimate, acoustic show on the 9th of April in my 2nd favourite city!”

Renowned for her show-stopping vocal prowess and credentials as a hitmaking songwriter, the 25-year-old artist is one of Britain’s most in-demand musical exports. Popjustice declared her “UK pop’s greatest secret weapon.” To date, Hill has written and performed on seven singles that charted in the top 40 of the UK Official Singles chart yet her roots are firmly ensconced in electronic music. Her songwriting skills have been enlisted by such artists as Tiësto, Jax Jones, Martin Solveig and Little Mix.

“Better Off Without You” is Hill’s first release since 2019’s Get To Know, which Billboard hailed as “electrifying…a must-hear.” A hugely personal body of work that explores the varying stages of love and loss, Get To Know simultaneously serves as an introduction to Hill and a veritable greatest hits collection. It contains the million-selling “Gecko (Overdrive)” with Oliver Heldens, which took the No. 1 spot on the UK Official Singles chart, the UK Top 10 singles “Wish You Well” with Sigala, which has amassed over 100 million streams, and “Afterglow” with Wilkinson, plus the club anthem “Back & Forth” with MK and Jonas Blue. The album also includes her collaborations with MNEK, WEISS and Matoma.
