Today, Marshmello, Imanbek and Usher join forces to release a brand new smash hit single “Too Much” along with an accompanying action-packed, futuristic “mini movie” directed by Christian Breslauer (Chris Brown, Marshmello, Migos, Roddy Ricch, Lil Baby). Listen/ Watch it HERE.
Co-written by Marshmello and Imanbek and starring Usher, “Too Much” is a high energy track about being there for the one you love: “Whatever you ask of me you don’t have to worry, there’s no such thing, that’s too much.”
Each of this trio of hit makers has enjoyed a slew of major successes in this year alone. Marshmello’s latest “OK Not To Be OK” featuring Demi Lovato topped the Billboard Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart at #1 and entered the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, joining 3 other of his Hot 100 charting singles this year including “Be Kind” with Halsey, and “Hate The Other Side” and “Come & Go” with Juice WRLD. Usher’s latest single “Bad Habits” released last month is a Top 10 hit at urban radio and is the follow up to “Don’t Waste My Time” featuring Ella Mai which topped the Billboard R&B chart at #1 in June 2020. Burgeoning producer Imanbek broke out wide this year with his remix of Saint Jhn’s “Roses” and became the first Eastern European producer to enter Top 5 on theBillboard Hot 100 Chart, peaking at #4 position with over 1 billion streams on Spotify, with Rolling Stone proclaiming his “Roses Remix” “2020’s Song of the Summer.”
Marshmello sported a Premiere Apparel Tie Dye Hoodie to promote his new song and music video with Demi Lovato. The electronic music artist and pop singer took to Instagram on Thursday to share the release of their track “OK Not To Be OK” and the accompanying music video. In the photos, Marshmello is wearing a tie-dye hoodie by the LA brand Premiere Apparel.
The color-infused “Rain Forest Hoodie” pairs perfectly with the DJ’s electronic sound, and is one of the brand’s many tie-dye signature styles. Premiere Apparel creates clothing with colorful, mesmerizing designs and comfortable fits.
Marshmello and Lovato teamed up with the non-profit movement Hope For The Day for this collaboration. The pair are working with the organization— whose motto is “It’s OK Not To Be OK”— to start a conversation about mental health and eliminate the stigmas and judgment that go along with it. While promoting the song, Lovato shared a message via Instagram on Thursday, which was also Suicide Prevention Day, expressing her struggles with mental health and encouraging her followers to check in with themselves and loved ones.

20-year-old electronic producer Surf Mesa follows his smash hit “ily (i love you baby)” ft. Emilee with a new single, “Somewhere” ft. Gus Dapperton, released today.
“The bittersweet track melds elements of electronic, alt-indie and left-of-center pop, offering a wistful look back at an ill-fated relationship,” a press release reads. The video captures Surf’s trademark summer vibes as it follows him on a day trip to the Southern California desert with members of LA girl skateboard crew GRLSWIRL and Loaded Skateboards in tow. Mara Whitehead (DeathbyRomy, Bright Eyes) directed the video and Ben Del Guercio (Bodysnatch) produced.
Surf Mesa’s breakthrough hit, “ily (i love you baby)” ft. Emilee, is now certified gold in the U.S. and only continues to reach new heights with global streams now surpassing 400 million. He also recently released his remix of Marshmello and Halsey’s smash hit “Be Kind”; which flips that power-ballad pulse into a tumble through side-chained synths and broken beats. Listen HERE.
Gus Dapperton has exceeded 100 million streams and sold 17,000 copies of his debut album, Where Polly People Go To Road. On top of that, he joined BENEE in “Supalonely,” garnering 50 milion streans in the U.F. alone.
YUNGBLUD shares his explosive new song “Strawberry Lipstick” and its equally outrageous video. Released via Locomotion/Interscope Records, “Strawberry Lipstick” is the brand-new single from the British singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist full-length sophomore album, due out later this year. Stream/download “Strawberry Lipstick” HERE, and check out the video HERE.
Directed by Christian Breslauer (Roddy Ricch, Tory Lanez, Marshmello) the “Strawberry Lipstick” video stars YUNGBLUD, his band, and L.A.-based singer/songwriter Jesse Jo Stark. With a whirlwind intensity true to YUNGBLUD’s chaotic charisma, the visual places him in a series of outlandish scenarios: mixing it up in a boxing ring, dancing in a custom Union Jack dress, lounging in a bathtub full of strawberries alongside Stark. A perfect foil to YUNGBLUD, Stark is a captivating presence.
Co-produced by YUNGBLUD with his longtime collaborators Chris Greatti (Poppy, Grimes) and Zakk Cervini (Bishop Briggs, Machine Gun Kelly), “Strawberry Lipstick” is a delightfully warped love song propelled by the 22-year-old artist’s snarling vocals and larger-than-life energy. With its fuzzed-out riffs and glam-rock flash, the gloriously catchy track also spotlights YUNGBLUD’s gender-bending tendencies.
Endlessly creative, YUNGBLUD also recently announced the upcoming release of his new graphic novel, The Twisted Tales of the Ritalin Club Volume 2: Weird Times at Quarry Banks University. The follow-up to The Twisted Tales of the Ritalin Club (his 2019 debut as a graphic novelist), the comic follows YUNGBLUD and his super-powered friends as they navigate university life and all its drugs, sex, and relationship drama — ultimately finding themselves caught in a trip that may cost them their lives. Due out via Z2 Comics this November, Weird Times at Quarry Banks University is now available for preorder in multiple editions. Go HERE for more info.
Born in Yorkshire, England, YUNGBLUD (aka Dominic Harrison) is a multi-instrumentalist who first picked up a guitar at age two and began writing his own songs at age 10. The 22-year-old artist is known for voicing what he feels are major concerns for his generation, using his music to unite and empower the youth of today. After breaking onto the scene with his self-titled EP, YUNGBLUD made his full-length debut with 21st Century Liability — a 2018 release that channeled his outrage about the state of the world into confrontational yet catchy songs steeped in punk fury and pop melodicism. The following year, YUNGBLUD released Live In Atlanta and the hope for the underrated youth EP, which debuted in the top 10 on the UK Official Albums chart. Over the years, YUNGBLUD has performed to sold-out crowds in over 20 countries and played some of the world’s biggest festivals, including Austin City Limits, Life Is Beautiful, Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds Festivals, and Vans Warped Tour.
Surf Mesa first racked up streams and climbed the charts with his breakthrough hit “ily (i love you baby),” and only continues to reach new heights. Today, Astralwerks released “Be Kind” (Surf Mesa Remix), bringing an upbeat, summery warmth to Marshmello and Halsey’s global smash hit, which amassed over 100 million combined global streams in its first month of release.
Powell Aguirre, the 20-year-old electronic producer behind Surf Mesa, has been making bedroom beats since the 3rd grade. Influenced by ODESZA, Petit Biscuit and Kasbo, Surf Mesa brings a fresh, original perspective with beautiful melodies, warm drums and a dreamy-infinite atmosphere.
“I’ve looked up to Marshmello and Halsey for as long as I can remember. When they asked me to remix their song, ‘Be Kind,’ I knew I had to create something special,” he said.
Ever wondered what your favorite musician is thinking? Starting today, Amazon Alexa is giving you a glimpse into the musings of Halsey and Marshmello.

The video helps set the romantic tone as partners settle into the new normal of quarantining together. It’s the new playbook on how to keep the spark alive. The video was directed by HDTAYFILMS (Bazzi, Diggy). Filmed in LA, the video features Malachiae serenading to his love interest while showering her with roses and affection.
“This video represents hard-working women all around the world who just wants to be loved and praised for their efforts,” says Malachiae “As the world is changing by the day I hope this video inspires us all to love on one another more.” Produced and written by Rod Cameron, alongside Malachiae and Jasper Cameron (Tory Lanez, Lloyd, Ciara), “Bedroom To a Club” delivers a sexy take on how to cater to ambitious women who are taking care of business on the job, at home, or in school. With smooth vocals, a little southern screw, and lyrics like, You been working hard all week/ Grinding for the family/ Money ain’t coming easy/ You barely get any sleep/ Let me be your stress reliever, “Bedroom To a Club” is the perfect late-night-date song following his smooth nostalgic heartfelt single “Try To Love.”
Malachiae recently performed in TRILLERFEST, one of the largest virtual music festivals, alongside Migos, Mario, Pitbull, Marshmello, G Herbo, and many more artists to help raise money for those affected by COVID-19. Malachiae is a breath of fresh air.

Internationally-Acclaimed DJ Marshmello; Mike Tierney, founder of Stuffed Puffs®, Richard Thompson Managing Partner of Factory LLC, and Elected Officials Join in the Celebration.
“The texture and taste are a pure marriage. You can tell that Mike Tierney, CEO of Stuffed Puffs put some time into the conception of these bad boys because they are “MMM MMM good!” – Tyler Jacob, 360 MAGAZINE
During a formal ceremony held today, Stuffed Puffs, the chocolate-filled marshmallow that took the summer S’mores season by storm, becomes the Lehigh Valley’s sweetest new employer. Stuffed Puffs Founder and CEO Mike Tierney, Richard Thompson, Managing Partner of Factory LLC, DJ Marshmello and his manager Moe Shalizi joined by Jim Petrucci, Founder and President of J.G Petrucci Co., Inc., Don Cunningham, CEO of Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corp, and Dennis M. Davin, Pennsylvania Secretary of Community and Economic Development, cut the 30’ ribbon on a the new 150,000 square foot plant in Bethlehem, PA.
“Stuffed Puffs will be available at retailers across the U.S. in the next year. The Lehigh Valley offers great incentives for companies to build here,” said Tierney. “With my partners, Richard Thompson and Marshmello, our plan is to have this new plant up and running quickly to meet demand. Meanwhile, Stuffed Puffs’ existing plant in Wisconsin is running 24/7 to satisfy America’s new-found craving for S’mores Indoors™.”
Stuffed Puffs received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED). The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team, an experienced group of economic development professionals who work with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania.
“Food processing is one of Pennsylvania’s most robust and vibrant industries, supporting thousands of jobs and generating more than $5 billion in sales annually,” said Dennis M. Davin, Pennsylvania Secretary of Community and Economic Development. “It is only fitting that Stuffed Puffs, a new, innovative food company, would make the Lehigh Valley in our commonwealth its new home, and we are proud to have helped.”
The building, located at 3900 Burgess Place in Hanover Township, Pennsylvania was formerly home to Guardian Life Insurance. J.G. Petrucci, began demolition and construction at the site in Q1 2019. “We are very excited to welcome Stuffed Puffs to Lehigh Valley Flex Center,” said Petrucci. “Stuffed Puffs is a dynamic innovator in the food industry and perfect fit for this project.”
“The decision of Stuffed Puffs to expand its production operations to the Lehigh Valley is an example of the region becoming a national leader in food and beverage innovation and production,” said Don Cunningham, President & CEO of the Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation
The Stuffed Puffs brand is part of Factory LLC located in the dynamic southside of Bethlehem, Pa. “At Factory LLC we seek innovation and we know Stuffed Puffs is a big winner and the new plant will support our continued growth, because we can’t make it fast enough.” said Richard Thompson, Managing Partner at Factory LLC. “We are looking for the top100 employees to join our Stuffed Puffs team.”
Stuffed Puffs is a confectionery manufacturer that uses a custom designed and highly secretive manufacturing process to make a chocolate-filled marshmallow. The company also has the ability to make multiple shapes and flavors of marshmallows with various fillings. Stuffed Puffs initially launched its product exclusively at Walmart stores and will be expanding to other retailers in 2020.
