LOLA YOUNG’S NEW EP – AFTER MIDNIGHT

British star on-the-rise Lola Young’s brand-new EP, After Midnight, is out now on Capitol Records. Listen here. The four-track EP is accompanied by an official music video for the track “Bad Game,” which can be viewed here.

Previously sharing tracks “Blue” and “Pill or a Lullaby,” Young releases After Midnight in full today, showing herself at her most open and honest. The record tells the story of one night in Young’s life, tracing the hours between midnight and 5 a.m. Young moves from feeling confident and in control to gradually becoming more vulnerable and, eventually, entering a manic state of mind.

The EP is coupled with a beautifully shot short film due out imminently. Directed by Dumas Haddad, it features Young and a love interest, as well as spoken word accompaniment written for the film by the poet Thea Gajik. The film is set in an apartment at different stages of the night, showing her in varying mental states and winding its way through the story of the EP; with Young leaving nothing on the table.

Describing the EP, Lola Young says, “My thoughts, my worries, my past lovers and my present ones too, my guilt, my fears, my dreams, wishes and all the crazy ass thoughts I have when the sun rises and I can’t sleep for shit. After midnight. The truest form of me.”

Last month, she played a sold-out show at Camden Assembly in London. Young will perform at numerous summer festivals and tour the U.K. with Dermot Kennedy in September. View itinerary here.

Hailed as “a star on the rise” by ELLE UK, the 20-year-old artist is fiercely independent and uncompromising. As a live performer she is uncompromising – clearly showing the potential, spirit and individuality that makes her one of the UK’s most exciting new talents. Her work to date – the personal and powerful singles “Bad Tattoo,” “Ruin My Make Up” and “Woman,” her debut collection of tracks, Intro, and second release, the Renaissance EP – received support across the board from the likes of Billboard, Atwood Magazine, Wonderland, British Vogue, British GQ and CLASH Magazine.

DeathbyRomy – Day I Die

DEATHBYROMY RELEASES BLISTERING NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO DAY I DIE

Tickets On Sale Today for Headline Shows At The Roxy In Los Angeles On September 15 & Brooklyn, NY’s Baby’s Alright On October 7

LISTEN HERE – WATCH HERE

‘Day I Die’ builds off chilled-out industrial production before the floor falls from beneath DeathbyRomy’s hook with bone-chilling screams and pummeling metal guitars. That second chorus is the ultimate climax. – PAPER Magazine

Today, alternative agitator DeathbyRomy returns with the explosive Day I Die, her first new single of 2021. The Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter combines undeniable hooks, brash production, metal riffs, and double-kick pummel on the track, which comes with a mind-melting music video courtesy of director Pix3lface. Listen HERE and watch the video HERE, which premiered today on PAPER Magazine.

An anthem for the terminally lovesick, Day I Die finds DeathbyRomy (born Romy Flores) deep in the grips of obsession. Take all of me, make me feel again, she laments. You got something sick and I know I’ll always want it to the day I die. That’s when the gnarled guitars come crashing in and the song takes a crushing turn. Jarring, catchy, and raw, Day I Die captures an artist already known for pushing boundaries breaking even more new ground.

This song is about my relationship with life, death, and love. ‘Day I Die’ at its core is a love song. Love isn’t soft and mushy to me, it’s hard as fuck. Love is god. It’s vibrant and addicting. Love is what fuels me to do all I do, says DeathbyRomy.

DeathbyRomy digs deep for the futuristic video too. Directed by Pix3lface and filmed in Malibu, the Day I Die visual is equal parts teenage dream and total nightmare. DeathbyRomy delivers a blistering performance, intercut with ominous scenes from a house party that she haunts. It’s intense, otherworldly, and beautiful, just like the song itself.

Day I Die follows singles Fiending for a Lover and Kiss Me Goodbye, which landed on multiple high-profile playlists and generated millions of streams. DeathbyRomy also contributed two tracks to the soundtrack of 2020’s Oscar-winning Promising Young Woman, the original Come and Play With Me and a pitch-black cover of the disco classic, It’s Raining Men.

Today, DeathbyRomy also announces two fall 2021 headline shows. The performances will take place on September 15 at Los Angeles’ famed rock venue, The Roxy (tickets on sale HERE) and Baby’s Alright In Brooklyn, NY on October 7 (tickets on sale HERE). The announcement of these tour dates follows DeathbyRomy’s killer performance earlier this month at LA’s Bar Lubitsch alongside Gia Woods, Miss Madeline, and Hollis.

Since releasing her 2019 Capitol Records debut EP Love u to Death, DeathbyRomy has been hailed as one to watch, garnering an abundance of glowing writeups. PAPER mag dubbed her Gen Z’s dark princess of pop, while Alternative Press crowned her the next empowering woman to capture your heart in their 100 Artists You Need to Know issue. Her songs have captivated critics and fans, and each new single, Day I Die included, feels like an even bolder left turn, she’s the sort of provocative, exciting artist sure to invade more eardrums soon.

About DeathbyRomy

Singer, songwriter, and dark-pop provocateur DeathbyRomy pays attention to every last detail. She pours both pain and euphoria into her catchy but heavy music, pitting electronic melodies and propulsive beats against hypnotic vocals and deeply personal lyrics. Now 21 years old, the Los Angeles-born Romy Flores wrote her first song at age 5 and began releasing her music at 15, mining inspiration from the iconoclastic artists she was raised on (The Beatles, Bjork, Kanye West, to name a few). With her 2018 debut album Monsters, she soon drew an avid following and found countless fans turning up to her shows adorned in her signature eye makeup. Her Capitol Records debut, 2019’s Love u to Death EP, was short but sickly sweet, emphasizing her unique interweaving of rap boldness, electronic innovation, and raw rock ‘n’ roll passion. As Romy’s sound has taken shape, so has her DeathbyRomy persona: the Harajuku punk fashion, the corpse paint-like makeup, and her hard-earned, utterly badass confidence. 2020’s Kiss Me Goodbye found Romy cleverly bidding farewell to an unfaithful lover over future-forward production, refusing to be second best to a pesky ex while dramatic drops punctuate her decision to choose herself. DeathbyRomy also contributed two songs to the Promising Young Woman soundtrack in 2020. She penned an original for the Oscar-winning film, Come and Play With Me, and covered the disco classic, It’s Raining Men. Day I Die marks DeathbyRomy’s first single of 2021. Gnarly and anthemic, it’s another genre-blending hit from the bold singer/songwriter, who PAPER dubbed Gen Z’s dark princess of pop.

Lola Young – Pill or a Lullaby

Lola Young released “Pill or a Lullaby,” a song from her forthcoming EP, After Midnight. Accompanied only by piano, Young flashes back on moments from the night before, as the dawn finds her in need of a “pill or a lullaby.” She recorded the raw, emotional track in a single take, co-producing with frequent collaborator manuka. Listen HERE.

After Midnight, which will be released by Capitol Records, tells the story of one night in Young’s life, tracing the hours between midnight and 5 a.m. A short film will accompany the EP. A late-night rendezvous takes her from feeling confident and in control to gradually becoming more vulnerable and, eventually, entering a manic state of mind, where she leaves nothing on the table.

Describing the EP, Lola Young says, “My thoughts, my worries, my past lovers and my present ones too, my guilt, my fears, my dreams, wishes and all the crazy ass thoughts I have when the sun rises and I can’t sleep for shit. After midnight. The truest form of me.”

Last night, she played a sold-out show at Camden Assembly in London. Young will perform at numerous summer festivals and tour the U.K. with Dermot Kennedy in September. View itinerary HERE.

“Pill or a Lullaby” follows “Bad Tattoo,” which received its first spin on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. Praising the “soulful powerhouse,” The Honey Pop said, “Lola’s velvet vocals had us drawn in on this track, from the first lyric to the last, and then every single time we’ve played it since then. Brilliant songwriting.” View the official video for “Bad Tattoo” HERE.

Mabel TakeItHome Artwork-final by Ashley Verse from MacKenzie Reynolds, Capitol Music Group for use by 360 Magazine

MABEL × POKÉMON – NEW SONG × VIDEO – TAKE IT HOME

Pokémon’s 25th-anniversary celebration continues with the release of “Take It Home,” a new song from BRIT Award recipient Mabel, who recorded it exclusively for the upcoming P25 Music compilation album. With an infectious beat and bright, summery vibe, the song celebrates being the kind of friend that others can count on. It was produced by Tommy Brown (Kanye West, Ariana Grande) and Mr. Franks (Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber). Listen to “Take It Home” here. The compilation, which will be released this autumn by Capitol Records, is part of a massive, yearlong music campaign from The Pokémon Company International in partnership with Universal Music Group.

The playful official video for “Take It Home” finds Mabel trying to unwind in her hotel room after a busy day. Flipping through the channels on the television, she’s delighted to find a Pokémon channel. Comforted by the beloved characters, she falls asleep. In her dream, she follows a Jigglypuff down the hallway and together they explore the hotel, which has been transformed into a dark yet sparkling dreamworld. Mabel takes the stage, joined by a troupe of dancers, and a Pikachu makes a cameo appearance. View the video, which was directed by Sophia Ray (Ella Eyre, Little Mix, Amber Mark) and shot at London’s iconic Savoy Hotel, here.

“I’ve been a fan of Pokémon for years, so I jumped at the opportunity to join the P25 program,” said Mabel. “I had so much fun working with Pikachu and my all-time favorite Pokémon, Jigglypuff, for the “Take It Home” video. I hope the fans love the song as much as I loved working on it to celebrate 25 years of Pokémon!”

Mabel’s incredible talent and pop sensibilities add a massive layer of fun to Pokémon’s P25 Music campaign, celebrating 25 years of Pokémon,” said Colin Palmer, vice president of marketing, The Pokémon Company International. “Music fans are going to love ‘Take it Home’ and Pokémon fans will be delighted to see a Jigglypuff, known for being a bubbly Pokémon who also loves to sing, featured in Mabel’s vibrant video. It’s a pitch-perfect collaborative match for our 25th-anniversary celebration.”

Mabel is the latest artist to join the P25 Music Program, taking her place alongside Katy Perry, who contributed the new original song, “Electric,” Post Malone, who put his own stamp on the Hootie & the Blowfish hit “Only Wanna Be With You” and J Balvin. Mabel recently released her first new single of 2021, “Let Them Know,” a spirited anthem about projecting confidence even in times of trouble.

Fans can keep up with the latest news for P25 Music and more celebrations across the franchise on Pokémon’s 25th anniversary website at Pokemon.com/25Pokémon 25: The Album can be pre-saved here.

Pokémon and music fans are invited to join the conversation online with @Pokemon and #Pokemon25.

About Pokémon

The Pokémon Company International, a subsidiary of The Pokémon Company in Japan, manages the property outside of Asia and is responsible for brand management, licensing and marketing, the Pokémon Trading Card Game, the animated TV series, home entertainment, and the official Pokémon website. Pokémon was launched in Japan in 1996 and today is one of the most popular children’s entertainment properties in the world. For more information, visit Pokémon.

About Mabel

In the last year or so alone, Mabel has won the BRIT Award for Best Female Solo Artist, surpassed four billion streams and 2.2 million adjusted album sales for first album, High Expectations –  the biggest-selling debut by a British woman in 2019 – and added to her formidable catalogue of smash hits like “Don’t Call Me Up” with three more top 10s under lockdown. Futuristic, fearless and feel-good, her first single of 2021, “Let Them Know,” marked the unmistakable arrival of a new era and mindset for Mabel. If High Expectations documented a coming-of-age (and the fact you may actually spend a lifetime figuring it all out), her new material finds Mabel emboldened with experience. Her girl-next-door candor remains, but in embracing dance music’s generational ethos of expression, liberation and inclusion, you witness a woman moving firmly to her own beat. The Guardian hailed Mabel as a “warrior queen” and Vogue praised her as “unflinchingly honest, earnestly positive, and resolutely single-minded.”

The Avalanches Announce Tour

Today Australian sample pioneers The Avalanches announce a 2022 North American tour. General ticket on-sale begins at 10:00am local time this Friday, July 23 at The Avalanche’s website. The tour showcases The Avalanches members Robbie Chater and Tony DiBlasi in an all-new electronic stage setup. Kicking off on February 17, 2022 at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., The Avalanches are set to take the audience on a cosmic journey, as they explore the vibrational relationship between light, sound, and spirit.

The early 2022 North American tour announcement follows a string of recent Australian shows for the duo. The Sydney Morning Herald praised the fantastical show, declaring “The Avalanches deliver a sample of heaven they united The Bowl by focusing on the enduring power of voices in a hive-mind two-man DJ set on an almighty sound system.” Double J agreed noting, “Armed with an array of synths and samplers, Robbie Chater and Tony DiBlasi piece together a glorious, cohesive set that serves as an emotional journey any Avalanches fan should be pleased to take.” In 2017, The Avalanches played their first-ever live shows in America, which included two mesmerizing sets at Coachella that landed in The Los Angeles Times Best Coachella Performances and Rolling Stone’s 15 Best Things We Saw At Coachella.

The Avalanches recently commemorated the 20 anniversary of their ground-breaking debut album, Since I Left You, with the release of a deluxe edition featuring numerous bonus tracks including fresh mixes from such artists as MF Doom, Black Dice, Leon Vynehall, Sinkane and Carl Craig. The anniversary edition, which just hit No. 1 on the NACC Electronic college radio chart, is available now in vinyl, CD and digital formats HERE. The release and subsequent touring in support of Since I Left You was followed by a 16-year radio silence, which was broken with the release of The Avalanches sophomore album, Wildflower (Astralwerks), which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Vinyl Albums chart and atop the Australian Albums chart in 2016. Their third album, We Will Always Love You (Astralwerks), was awarded four stars byRolling Stone and won the prestigious 2020 Australian Music Prize. Following the release of We Will Always Love You, The Avalanches performed a very special live streamed DJ set on the rooftop of iconic Melbourne institution Curtin House. The duo spun tunes from their own catalogue along with favorites and deep cuts from their vast and eclectic record collections.

The Avalances – Since I Left You Deluxe Edition

The 20th-anniversary edition of The Avalanches‘ groundbreaking debut album, Since I Left You, has been released via Astralwerks. Originally released in Australia in 2000 and in the U.S./U.K. in 2001, Since I Left You was named one of the year’s best albums by critics around the world and later placed in the Top 10 of Pitchfork’s Top 200 Albums of the 2000s and in the Top 20 of Rolling Stone’s Greatest EDM Albums of All Time. Since I Left You 20th-Anniversary Deluxe Edition is available in vinyl, CD, and digital formats HERE.

In the hours leading up to the release of the deluxe edition, The Avalanches shared the visualizer for “Tonight May Have To Last Me All My Life” (MF DOOM Remix), one of the remarkable remixes exclusive to the deluxe edition. A previously unheard vocal contribution on the track serves as a bittersweet homage from the late, enigmatic master of the hip-hop underground, who passed away last October. Daniel Dumilethe, who performed as MF DOOM, was praised by The New York Times for forging “a style that was intricate and imaginative, calling on both esoteric and lowbrow references as well as cartoonish imagery in lyrics that could be poignantly emotional.” Born in London and raised on Long Island, Dumilethe released six albums plus full-length collaborations with Madlib and Danger Mouse, among others.

Prince Paul, the de facto fourth member of De La Soul and renowned remixer of Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick and Queen Latifah, revisits the album’s exhilarating title track and acclaimed British producer/DJ Leon Vynehall brings a profound sense of reflection to his remix of “Tonight May Have To Last Me All My Life.” The deluxe edition also includes fresh mixes from Mario Caldato Jr., who produced the Beastie Boys’ multi-Platinum classics Paul’s Boutique, Check Your Head, Ill Communication and Hello Nasty.

No album ever made history quite like The Avalanches‘ debut. A meticulous labor of love sifted from the second-hand record bins of Melbourne, Since I Left You was an unprecedented act of musical invention filtered through the loving hands of young music-obsessed DJs and musicians to blossom into the ultimate feelgood world party soundtrack. The boundary-pushing orchestration of samples, some say as many as 3,500 uniquely sourced and spliced sound fragments, was unanimously acclaimed as an act of technical genius. But the glowing heart of the project, a story of oneness through time, space, and infinite diversity, was the magic spell that made the world melt in elation.

Since I Left You’s achievement was to break the easy but facile equation of depth with darkness, intensity with misery: on this record, it is happiness that is the complicated and mysterious state.”

The release and subsequent touring in support of Since I Left You was followed by a 16-year radio silence, which was broken with the release of The Avalanches’ sophomore album, Wildflower, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Vinyl Albums chart and atop the Australian Albums chart in 2016. Their third album,  We Will Always Love You, was awarded four stars by Rolling Stone and won the prestigious 2020 Australian Music Prize.

Announced as the inaugural Luminary Artists in Residence, The Avalanches will be performing Since I Left You with Australia’s Adelaide Symphony Orchestra on July 30 as part of “Illuminate Adelaide”: a major new event celebrating innovation, music, art, and light.

Jonas Blue × Léon – Hear Me Say

JONAS BLUE AND LÉON RELEASE EUPHORIC HOUSE SINGLE HEAR ME SAY, Tickets On Sale Now for Summer DJ residency at Resorts World in Las Vegas, Listen to Hear Me Say HERE

Multi-platinum producer and songwriter Jonas Blue is back today with the euphoric Hear Me Say, a dizzying house track with rising Swedish pop star Léon. Built around anthemic vocals and caffeinated drum rushes, the single arrives right on time, at the cusp of a summer of packed dancefloors, sweaty festivals, and breezy days in the company of friends. Listen here via Astralwerks and view the lyric video here.

Hear Me Say is a hands-in-the-air house track, designed to soundtrack reckless abandon. Neon synth programming gilds Léon’s affecting vocal, magnifying the depths of the emotion. Jonas’ production is detailed but tasteful, nodding both to the fizzy history of rave music and sleek classic house tracks. As Léon sings of romance lost and found, the track builds to a buoyant climax, underscoring one of dance music’s great promises. No matter how you’re feeling when you get to the club, you can always dance through the pain.

Hear Me Say is about a relationship that seemed perfect but the couple drifted apart somewhere along the way, Jonas explains. They will always love each other, and will cherish the memories they created, but it was just not meant to be. It’s about having a voice, and people hearing your voice. It’s about expressing your feelings and not holding back what you want to say.

I’m so happy that this song is finally coming out, Léon adds. It came from a very honest place and I think we all felt how special it was the day we wrote it. I love that it turned out to be a song that you want to dance to, how Jonas made it feel so uplifting and powerful with his production on top of it. It almost has this 90’s feel to it. Can’t wait to see how people feel about it!

This new single is just the latest in a long string of uplifting dance anthems for Jonas Blue. Hear Me Say follows March’s Something Stupid with R&B singer AWA, which also received a stylish video from world-renowned filmmaker and photographer Rankin. These new singles have only further established Jonas as a global dance-pop powerhouse. Thanks to tracks like his beloved Perfect Strangers, he’s been certified platinum over 120 times across the world, attained over 13 billion streams, and sold over 60 million singles. These numbers put him in rarified air, even in the realms of pop music, but they wouldn’t mean anything without tasteful, infectious singles like Hear Me Say to back it up.

Soon after the release of Hear Me Say, Jonas is also plotting a return to live shows. He’s set to perform a sold-out show at London’s Ministry of Sound on June 25. Later this summer, he’ll begin a DJ residency at Resorts World Las Vegas. In partnership with Zouk Group, the first shows are set to take place on July 30 and Aug 13 at AYU DAYCLUB. Tickets are available now. This busy schedule, like Hear Me Say, is proof of Jonas’ continued innovation and attention to detail. Even though he’s on top of the world, he’s still pushing himself with every track and making people dance along the way.

About Jonas Blue

Jonas Blue’s career has been felt the world over with singles like Fast Car, Perfect Strangers, Rise, Mama and Polaroid collectively having been certified platinum over 120 times around the globe. With over 13 billion global streams and over 60 million singles sales to date, Jonas has cemented his name as a main stage DJ and pop powerhouse.

2018 was a landmark year. He released Rise featuring Jack & Jack, which was one of the summer’s biggest global hits, and owned the autumn with Polaroid – his highly anticipated collab with Liam Payne and Lennon Stella. The success of both hits was sandwiched between Back & Forth with Becky Hill and Detroit house legend, MK. Debut album Blue soon followed, the recipient of the Brit Certified Breakthrough Award and later gold status.

Jonas has made his mark on Ibiza, having performed at hotspots Ushuaia, Cafe Mambo and has successfully hosted his Electronic Nature residency at superclub Ibiza. As we see a return to live performances in 2021, Jonas will be joining Tiesto and Zedd as a resident DJ at Zouk in Las Vegas.

Following on from hits Mistakes and Naked in 2020, Something Stupid featuring AWA kicked off his 2021 in style, smashing its way into homes worldwide as Jonas continues to inspire, uplift, and spread his message of global positivity.

About Léon

Léon released her self-titled album in 2019, after earning a cult-following since her 2015 debut single. The critically acclaimed Swedish artist has consistently delivered with every project, demonstrating her knack for crafting emotive, tender, and unforgettable pop songs. Having amassed over 600 million global streams to date, she is a regular critics’ favorite in the press, racking up praise from the likes of Vogue, Glamour, In-Style, The FADER, and more. In addition to making her late-night television debut on The Late Late Show with James Corden, she has sold out headline shows worldwide and performed at U.S. festival staples including Coachella, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza.

H3000 – Running

“Running” is the second track to be released from H3000. It follows “July Heat,” which Billboard named as one of the best new dance tracks, noting, “Together [Luke Steele and Jarrad Rogers] conjure the futuristic vibes of the year 3000, with their first single “July Heat” giving an optimistic vision of the far-off future. The vocals are pitched up to sound like robots, and the track is a dually spare and brightly glitchy amalgamation that’s altogether sleek as the chrome on your hovercraft.” It’s an interesting electronic track that is simultaneously catchy but also beautifully surreal in it’s instrumentals. 

The two artists met in Steele’s adopted hometown of Los Angeles. Steele recalls, “It was the start of summer in California, which is always such a great time. We just connected. The band is about the heavens and what will be the issues of the heart in the year 3000.”

That connection in the spirit is present across the entire album, each song a hypnotic synthesis of pop, electronic music, and classic song writing that plays like a world unto itself. Steele channels a vision beyond the screen into breathtaking lyrics and melody. Rogers is a perfect yang to Steele’s yin, adding a grounding physicality to Steele’s unmoored writing. A sublime union in the mold of Bowie and Eno or Tennant and Lowe, there’s something more than the sum of its parts here, an alchemical spark that’s easy to hear but hard to describe. 

Whether that’s to the fragility of the human heart, a transformative tragedy or the love of the strange, H3000 comes about from a chance encounter and a musical world yet to be explored. Join “LUKE 18” and “MSTR ROGERS” on this transcendental journey as they take on the year 3000 together.  

About H3000

H3000 is a new creative project from world-renowned musicians Luke Steele and Jarrad Rogers. The Australian-born duo merge deep emotional states with advanced technologies to create transcendental works of music and art, unlike anything fans have experienced before. H3000 will see Steele and Rogers transformed into LUKE 18 and MSTR ROGERS, respectively, for a boundary-breaking visual experience. Both Steele and Rogers have enjoyed major critical and commercial success with their past musical projects. Steele is well known from his days as the dynamic front man for the multi-Platinum selling act, Empire Of The Sun, while Rogers has written and produced for chart-topping artists including Charli XCX, Rita Ora, Lana Del Rey and Avicii, to name a few.

When I visited the Pokemon Café 9; while touring Japan, I got so nostalgic. It took me back to my junior high years. So, when I got the call to be a part of the 25th anniversary celebration alongside Post Malone and J Balvin, I was elated, says Katy Perry. The song’s themes resilience, igniting your inner light have guided my life and also parallel Pokemon’s story and characters. Pikachu is the evolved form of Pichu, so in the video, you see the younger version of me with Pichu and myself in the present day with Pikachu. We both evolve yet retain a sense of playfulness.

Katy Perry has created a vibrant anthem to help us celebrate 25 years of Pokemon with Electric, an amazing song about recognizing one’s own journeys and evolving, said Colin Palmer, vice president of marketing, The Pokemon Company International. We also hope fans around the world enjoy seeing Pikachu team up with Katy in the music video for Electric’s which is a wonderful visual accompaniment to the inspirational song.

NJOMZA X “LUCKY”

Los Angeles-based singer, NJOMZA, has released the live version of Lucky via SinceThe80s/Motown. In the heartfelt single, NJOMZA’s songwriting prowess reflects on the relationships in her life while reminding others to cherish and love the people close to them. In December, she released a black-and-white video directed by herself and Griffin Olis that incorporated home-video footage and other shots, but today is back with a visual in the comfort of her home with a live band.

“Lucky” is the latest release for NJOMZA where uDiscover Music said it’s “a return to the melodic form that caught the attention of NJOMZA’s listeners early in her career.” It follows the gauzy, sensual single “Bite,” which has garnered over 2.5 million total streams and press from MTV, Refinery 29, Flaunt, Dujour, and more. With incredibly strong vocals and melodies, she effortlessly flows between both soulful R&B and alternative pop music and racked up over 50 million global streams to date with releases like 2019’s “No One Is Spared” and her Vacation and Sad For You EPs. The Kosovo-Albanian singer has made quite an imprint in music having been signed to the late Mac Miller’s REMember Music label when she was a teen to co-writing several of the biggest pop records of the last decade.
