About Usher

Usher has changed music, culture and countless lives. Beyond selling over 80 million records worldwide and collecting dozens of awards, he has simultaneously lit up the small screen on NBC’s The Voice and the big screen in blockbusters such as Hustlers. He has also tirelessly distinguished himself as a devout humanitarian, raising tens of millions of dollars for various causes and uplifting youth via his New Look Foundation since 1999. A true outlier, he was equally at home on the stage of his blockbuster 2021 Las Vegas residency as he was on a 2016 government cultural mission to Cuba as part of President Barack Obama’s Presidential Committee for Arts and Humanities. The multiple GRAMMY Award-winning diamond-selling international megastar, actor, dancer, entrepreneur, philanthropist and proud Atlanta resident inspires change yet again in 2022 and beyond.

Thus far, he has gathered eight GRAMMY Awards and emerged as Billboard’s “#1 Hot 100 Artist of the 2000s,” “#2 most successful artist of the 2000s,” and “one of the best-selling artists in American music history,” according to the RIAA. He catapulted four consecutive albums to #1 on the Billboard Top 200, beginning with the landmark diamond-certified Confessions in 2004. He continued to push boundaries with a series of singles and shows before setting the stage for his ninth full-length offering in 2022.

Most importantly, Usher gives back at every turn. Under his leadership, the New Look Foundation provides opportunities for young people in underserved communities, enabling them to flourish and achieve seemingly impossible dreams. He has contributed to numerous philanthropic causes and historic advancements. He penned a moving essay in The Washington Post, lobbying for the recognition of JUNETEENTH as a holiday in 2020. Fostering the national and eventual congressional conversation, he attended the signing of the bill making JUNEETEENTH a federal holiday at its passage during 2021. He has achieved recognition and various honors from the Boys & Girls Club of America, the Trumpet Foundations, and Do Something. The NCAAP selected him as its 2010 Ford Freedom Award Scholar, and Morehouse College honored him with the prestigious 2014 “Candle Award.” In 2022, he takes the stage at The Beloved Benefit, which exists to fortify and transform communities throughout Atlanta.

Madonna × Tokisha release new song Hung Up via 360 MAGAZINE

MADONNA × TOKISCHA

Watch official video HERE.

Directed by Sasha Kasiuha.

Madonna has released a new remix of her global dance smash “Hung Up” featuring Dominican rapper Tokischa, titled “Hung Up on Tokischa” – listen here.

The collaboration first premiered with a live performance by the duo at Madonna’s Pride event at Terminal 5 in New York in June celebrating her career-spanning remix collection Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones. Madonna recently discussed the making of “Hung Up” alongside Stuart Price on the Song Exploder podcast, giving fans a rare look into the creation of the chart-topping track.

Madonna most recently announced the long-awaited “Erotica” picture disc will finally see the light of day after a three-decade delay. Her groundbreaking fifth studio album, Erotica, will celebrate its 30th anniversary on October 20, 2022. In 1992, the album debuted at the top of charts around the world and has gone on to sell more than six million copies. To celebrate the anniversary, a limited edition 12” vinyl picture disc featuring the album’s title track is available now for pre-orders and set for release on October 21. Pre-order here.

Originally scheduled for release during the fall of 1992, the picture disc features a colorized version of the famous “toe sucking” photo taken from Madonna’s Sex book, which was released the same week as the Erotica album. However, the picture disc was cancelled unexpectedly just ahead of release, as the visual was considered too explicit for in-store display back then. The manufactured copies were promptly destroyed, with only a few finding their way into the public’s hands, only adding to the infamous allure of the release.

“Erotica” was the album’s first single and peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, where it spent 18 weeks on its way to earning gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). ““Erotica” was a major hit globally as well, topping the European Hot 100 Singles chart, climbing to #3 in the U.K., and was a Top Five hit in Australia and New Zealand.

“Erotica” also reached #1 in the U.S. on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs and Dance Single Sales charts. A remixed version of the track is included on Madonna’s latest album, Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones. Released in August, the career-spanning compilation was curated by Madonna in celebration of her historic achievement as the first and only recording artist to have 50 #1 hits on any single Billboard chart. In 2020, she topped the Dance Club Songs chart for the 50th time with “I Don’t Search I Find.”

Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones – available now on both streaming and physical formats – dominated album charts around the world following its release this summer. The album debuted at #1 on both the Billboard Top Album Sales and Top Current Album Sales charts. It peaked at #8 on the Billboard Top 200, making Madonna the first female artist with Top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 in each of the last five decades, adding another landmark achievement to her long list of accolades. The album also debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Album and Vinyl Albums charts.

Madonna’s meteoric rise began in the New York club scene and she has perpetually kept her finger on the pulse of dance and club culture across five decades. She has continued to collaborate with the most cutting-edge artists and DJs to reimagine her groundbreaking hits. As a result, Madonna has now achieved more remix albums on the Billboard 200 than any other artist. Finally Enough Love is also the highest charting remix album in over a decade.

50 Number Ones spans her entire dance club chart reign with dozens of remixes by the world’s top producers. In addition to fan favorites, the collection also includes a selection of rare remix recordings, with more than 20 being officially released for the first time or making their commercial/digital debut.

ABOUT BLACKPINK: 

One of the most massively successful K-pop groups in music history, BLACKPINK have redefined the global pop landscape since first bursting onto the scene in 2016. Along with boasting the #1 most-subscribed artist channel on YouTube, the South Korean quartet has achieved such boundary-defying milestones as scoring the highest-charting album by a female group in over a decade and becoming the first K-pop girl group ever to perform at Coachella (the largest music festival in the U.S.). Comprised of JISOO, JENNIE, ROSÉ and LISA—all immensely charismatic vocalists, dancers, and fast-rising fashion icons—BLACKPINK began their meteoric rise with their 2016 debut “SQUARE ONE” and further proved their crossover power with “SQUARE UP” (a 2018 release that quickly cracked the Billboard 200). 

Soon after signing with Interscope Records through a global partnership with YG Entertainment, the group made their full-length debut with 2020’s immediately iconic THE ALBUM. THE ALBUM shot to #2 on the Billboard 200 and landed three singles on the Billboard Hot 100: “How You Like That” (the iconic single that shattered several YouTube records, including fastest video to cross 150 million views), “Ice Cream” (a collaboration with Selena Gomez that broke the record for highest-charting female K-pop group on the Hot 100), and “Lovesick Girls” (a track that’s sold over 1.4 million copies worldwide, making BLACKPINK the first K-pop girl group to sell over a million units). Through the years, BLACKPINK have also garnered a number of major awards (including an MTV Video Music Award for Song of the Summer as well as three E! People’s Choice Awards), collaborated with superstars like Dua Lipa and Lady Gaga, performed on “The Tonight Show,” and starred in BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky (a 2020 film hailed by the New York Times as an “endearing documentary that emphasizes each member’s individuality”). With over 6.3 billion career Spotify streams to date, BLACKPINK have unveiled their wildly anticipated sophomore album BORN PINK. In less than a month, the group will hit the road for their 2022/2023 world tour kicking off on October 15 in Seoul, South Korea.

Asst Veep of Wynn Nightlife Ryan Jones speaks to Vaughn Lowery of 360 MAGAZINE about Swedish House Mafia and Calvin Harris final performance

Wynn Scores SHM!

Asst Veep Ryan Jones solidifies residency with Swedish House Mafia at Wynn Las Vegas.

Listen to Ryan Jones on 360 MAG Apple/Spotify podcast HERE.

After individually booking the group members of Swedish House Mafia to spin, Wynn Nightlife decided to build a partnership to include the entire ensemble. This will mark SHM‘s first-ever nightlife residency within North America.

According to Ryan Jones, assistant vice president of Wynn Nightlife, the group has received an overwhelming response, resulting in almost sold out show.  

The first two shows, August 20th and September 3rd, will both be held at the XS nightclub. Although Swedish House Mafia will play a traditional set in the DJ booth, audience members will witness a few surprises on those specific dates. Both shows will happen on Saturday night, around 1:30 am or 2 am and play until the venue closes. With a capacity of about 4,000 people, including 176 VIP tables, Ryan thinks the show will be an enormous success.  

In addition, Calvin Harris will perform on September 17th at XS nightclub. More exciting news will be announced in the coming months.

As an innovative brand which has worked in tandem with both Coachella and the Super Bowl, the Wynn continues to seek new and exciting ways to remain relevant in both the music and entertainment industries.

According to Ryan, with regards to philanthropy, the community outreach program at Wynn Nightlife is robust. To date, the staff has volunteered 2,500 documented hours to various local charities and elementary schools within city limits.

For young people who seek similar positions, Ryan suggests they explore every aspect of the industry before making a decision.

PINK – IRRELEVANT

Critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter and international superstar P!NK has dropped a brand-new track titled, “Irrelevant.” Out today via RCA Records, the protest anthem was written by P!NK and Ian Fitchuk, marking the first collaboration between the artist and the Grammy-Award winning producer and songwriter.

Speaking about the new song, P!NK reveals, “As a woman with an opinion and the fearlessness to voice that opinion, it gets very tiring when the only retort is to tell me how irrelevant I am. I am relevant because I exist, and because I am a human being. No one is irrelevant. And no one can take away my voice.”

With focus on voter’s advocacy, the artist is throwing support behind the organization, When We All Vote, announcing that her proceeds from“Irrelevant” will go to the national, nonpartisan voting initiative created by Michelle Obama. The advocacy group, whose mission is to change the culture around the voting process, seeks to increase participation in each election cycle by helping to close race and age gaps. To date, more than 100 million people have been educated about the voting process, resulting in increased voter registration.

The call to resist continues in “Irrelevant,” as P!NK urges fans to take action and advocate for their rights.

“Irrelevant” is out now. Listen HERE.

It was genius and it was a revolutionary thing,” with Naomi Campbell adds, “George pitched it to me in L.A. and his exact words were, ‘You’re the leader of the gang and unless you say yes, the rest of the girls won’t.’”

“Freedom! ’90,” directed by Oscar nominated David Fincher, has been recently remastered in 4K and will screen in full ahead of the main feature in cinemas worldwide. For local listings for the global cinema event, visit georgemichaelfreedomuncut.com

We honor The Beatles on June 25 for Global Beatles Day via 360 MAGAZINE

GBD

June 25 marks the thirteenth celebration of Global Beatles Day (GBD). Given the state of the world, the event, which began in 2009, takes on a greater meaning this year. The Beatles core message of peace and love is, yet again, a rallying point for a call to action says the event’s founder. 

Faith Cohen, Indianapolis-based GBD founder has in the past suggested honoring the contributions of the Beatles in many ways including playing their music exclusively on that day to sharing historic and personal Beatles photos and memories among the band’s worldwide fan community.  This year, in addition to celebrating the special day (Ways To Celebrate – Global Beatles Day), she has a new call to action for June 25, the date that commemorates the historic worldwide television broadcast debut of ‘All You Need Is Love’ during 1967’s Summer of Love. As it happens this year June 25 coincides with a scheduled Paul McCartney performance at this year’s Glastonbury Festival and a concert appearance by Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band in Hollywood, FL. 

“For 2022, we would like to suggest that the band’s generations of fans around the globe consider sending an online link of the music video of ‘All You Need Is Love’ to 10 people who matter,” says Cohen. “This could be to family, friends and coworkers or elected officials.  It could be kings, queens, princes, presidents, ambassadors, military leaders and law enforcement organizations. We want them to send links to 10 people or organizations that matter in running our world and keeping it going. Then we want them to ask those ten entities to send it on to 10 more and ask them to do the same.  On and on. From the United States, Europe, Russia, China and even North Korea. Send the link to those in power, from the local to global level, who keep the world running.”

Faith asks the recipients to watch the All You Need video and use it as a measure of what the world could and needs to be.  Asked if it is overly optimistic she responds, “That is exactly the point.  It’s an idea that needs to be put out there once again, just as in 1967 when another war and societal pressures were at a boiling point.” Cohen feels that the meaning of the message of Global Beatles Day gives hope when hope is all we have. It’s idealistic but that’s what Paul, John, George and Ringo were in the first place.  Link 10 people who matter in the world to the message, and then 10 more and 10 more etc.

Here’s a suggested message to your chosen recipients but please feel free to ‘get back’ with whatever you deem is appropriate and in the spirit of the band.  

In celebration of Global Beatles day I am sending you this video in the hopes of sharing messages of peace and joy. Please share this with 10 more people who can pass on this message and make a difference. 

The Beatles music and messages made the world a better place.  In continuing to use the date of June 25th for GBD, the holiday invites the world to celebrate the legacy of history’s most famous band. GBD is meant to honor the work of The Fab Four for their artistry and humanity.  It is strictly a noncommercial celebration for 24 hours that gives a nod to what can happen when a message and a song join up at the right time for the right reasons. The day has grown to become an internationally recognized celebration that has gained momentum each year it has occurred, having been recognized and celebrated by the surviving Beatles themselves, the Grateful Dead, The Afghan Whigs, Robyn Hitchcock, Peter Tork and many more. This year the All You Need Is Love video will be utilized as its centerpiece as a call to action. 

 Love is all you need.
