Last year, Nnena showcased her range and versatility on her EP  …Just Cause. The four-track EP features Childish MajorDaVionne and WESTSIDE BOOGIE – the latter on the standout track “Come Again.” This new project follows the release of her debut EP Bipolar AF, the first release from the partnership between Loud Robot, the record label from JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot and RCA Records.

Additionally, Nnena was featured on Insecure: Music From The HBO Original Series, Season 5soundtrack with her memorable single “Fun,” which is currently the second highest streamed track on the album on Spotify. This week Nnena had her late night television debut performing the track on The Late Late Show with James Corden – watch it here

An incredible writer, lyricist, rapper and vocalist, bursting with effusive energy and a massive personality, the Cleveland native, born Nnena Adigwe to Nigerian parents, credits some of her robust, descriptive storytelling impulses to her past screenwriting experience. Nnena began writing comedic sketches during college and that soon led to working on more full-fledged projects—the kinds of works that needed sound tracking. Rather than pay licensing fees, she tried her hand at making her own music.  Her music reflects her eclectic influences ranging from Otis Redding to Millie Jackson, from Queen Latifah to Miriam Makeba to Kendrick Lamar and especially  “Lauryn Hill, she molded me the most,” along with other neo-soul genre artists Musiq Soulchild and Jill Scott, as well from Drake, J. Cole, to Tiwa Savage.

Nnena is currently working on her debut album; stay tuned for more music coming soon.

“Past The Naked Eye” tour dates:

11/30 – Atlanta, GA – Masquerade Purgatory Stage

RICH THE KID RETURNS WITH “MOTION”

RICH THE KID RETURNS WITH A NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO “MOTION” — ANNOUNCES SIGNING WITH RCA RECORDS

LISTEN HERE / WATCH HERE

Rich The Kid is back with the release of his new single and video “Motion” – listen here / watch here. Over a hypnotizing, melodic beat, Rich spits bars and punctuates his return to music. Directed by DREWFILMEDIT, the visual captures Rich in motion during his daily life. Talking about the new single Rich states, “If you not having ‘Motion’ you have nothing.” The latest drop also comes alongside the announcement of his signing to RCA Records. 

Watch “Motion” HERE.

Born in Queens, New York, Rich found himself immersed in the street rap scene, particularly the escalating beef between Jay-Z and Nas. At just nine years old, Rich was taken by their slick wordplay. New York may have given him his penchant for lyrics, but Atlanta gave him his swag, as he was bound for the South at 11 and started listening to artists like T.I. and Outkast thanks to his uncle. Rich started creating his own music and promoted it through social media, but in order to double down on getting his songs played, he networked heavily and built relationships to get his music heard. In March of 2018, he cut the intoxicating track “New Freezer,” Kendrick Lamar hopped on the track shortly thereafter and a star was born. The double platinum track was followed by the triple platinum colossal single “Plug Walk” later in 2018. The World Is Yours album debuted that same year, followed by The World Is Yours 2 in 2019. In March of 2020, he dropped Boss Man just as the pandemic leaned in, boasting collaborations with the likes of Lil Baby, Nicki Minaj, Post Malone and several others. “The pandemic allowed me to get my mojo back and build a body of work,” Rich explains. “The next album I’m releasing is from songs I’ve recorded through quarantine up until now.”

For Rich, his motion also includes spreading his wings, as he’s gearing up to release music exploring different genres, collaborating with new artists and more. The motion won’t stop from here.

Check out “Motion” and stay tuned for more coming from Rich The Kid.

”NEW UNKNOWN” by Captain Kirk Douglas

CAPTAIN KIRK DOUGLAS UNVEILS HIS NEW SOLO ALBUM ‘NEW UNKNOWN’ 

Captain Kirk Douglas is one of the hardest-working guitarists in music today. Today, longtime guitarist for The Roots, Captain Kirk Douglas, releases his second full-length solo album New Unknown under the artist name Hundred Watt Heart. Listen to New Unknown HERE

Recorded over the course of the pandemic in his Long Island childhood home, New Unknown captures both the uncharted territory Kirk enters as a soloist and the unforeseeable impact of the pandemic on our society at large. The album’s focal track, Land of Look Beyond, is a psychedelia-tinged devotional to mother nature and the importance of returning to one of its roots. In the song it is the chorus, he reflects, Time has flown // All that’s been experienced Has caused us to bloom.

New Unknown is a sonic culmination of many steps taken during a time when most avenues in our collective lives were closed, Kirk says of the album. Each step involved taking action by reaching into myself or reaching out to another human being and every outcome inspired me to take another action and then another. The result is a creation of organic rock music delivered with power and grace. It brought me a lot of joy and I want to share that with whoever it may resonate with.”

New Unknown captures Kirk its introspective spirit and highlights his powerful presence as a frontman in his own right. Previously released singles, like We Can Be One, featuring a simmering beat and boisterous horn section, received tremendous praise. American Songwriter called the single soul-shaking, while WXPN raved, we can be assured [the album is] something to look forward to. Meanwhile, the rock-forward single, Over The Ocean, was called a terrific display of Douglas’s riff-writing talent by Guitar World. Similarly, his latest meditative release, Breathe In, was championed by mxdwn which called it a track full of introspection.

Audiences worldwide recognize Captain Kirk Douglas is scorching singular style as a six-string powerhouse. Joining The Roots back in 2003, he has supplied guitar and background vocals for a series of critically acclaimed Top 10 albums on the Billboard Top 200, including The Tipping Point [2004], Game Theory [2006], Rising Down [2008], How I Got Over [2010], and Wake Up! [2010] with John Legend. The latter garnered a pair of GRAMMY Awards, namely Best R&B Album and Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance for Hang On In There. In addition, his guitar powered The Roots tastemaker-approved, And Then You Shoot Your Cousin in 2014. Between countless sold-out live shows, he holds down guitar duties for the band nightly on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. He also notably forces with Gibson Guitars to release his own signature SG model. Inciting widespread applause, Guitar Player has celebrated Kirkis blazing fretboard work, and American Songwriter noted, His wild, bending solos careen off the staccato, precise drum fills from the group is leader and drummer, Questlove. Recorded at Electric Ladyland Studios, he dropped his debut Turbulent Times under the moniker Hundred Watt Heart. Of the latter, Rolling Stone applauded his melodies that range from contemplative, blues-tipped and soulful to raw and raucous.

NURKO – ETERNITY

On August 19, 2022, New York producer NURKO returns with soaring new single Eternity” featuring Dayce Williams, out via Astralwerks. Listen to the dreamy floor-filler HERE. The single is NURKO‘s first release since signing to the boundary-pushing electronic music label.

The wistful track finds vocalist Williams desperately attempting to salvage a relationship. “Tell me what you mean, I’m in the in-between,” he sings. “Isn’t it obvious that I wanna do you right?” Meanwhile, NURKO‘s production is slow-burning, growing from stripped-back, angelic string plucks into a whirlwind build and cascading drop. It’s an explosive backdrop to match the chorus’ impassioned refrain: “I’m praying for eternity.” Dreamy yet hard-hitting, “Eternity” proves that NURKO is already a master of emotionally rich electronic music.

The track follows the release of Arrival Remixes, a collection of artist remixes stemming from NURKO‘s debut EP Arrival, released back in March. The original EP-which includes singles “Disappearing Now” featuring Chandler Leighton and “Lost Without You” with Crystal Skies and KnownAsNat-earned rave reviews from the dance world, with EDM Identity calling it a “heart-fluttering masterpiece.”

NURKO broke through in 2021 with the biggest song of his career so far, “Sideways.” The collaboration with ILLENIUM and Valerie Broussard has already logged over 30 million Spotify streams. Fans can experience NURKO‘s cathartic tracks in person as he continues his cross-country U.S. travels. In addition to dates at Morrison, Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Hollywood’s Academy LA, he’ll be playing festivals including Bass Canyon, Lost Lands, Groove Cruise Cabo, and Freaky Deaky.

LOYLE CARNER × HATE

London’s dominant lyricist, Loyle Carner, releases his new single “Hate,” a remarkable departure from anything he’s done before and a stunning beacon for everything to come. Stream “Hate” — HERE.

A bold, quantum leap forward from the critically and commercially successful UK Top 3 album, “Not Waving, But Drowning,” this is hardly music aiming simply for the pop charts; instead, it is turbo charged with the kind of fury and potency, confusion, and anxiety that make up the modern experience of being Black and British at this particular point in time. However, this is no mere philosophical exercise; the result is Carner’s most ambitious track. Powered by lush, almost cinematic production, it is a visceral no holds barred essay about lives lived in the cross-hairs of society, fuelled by fear, exhaustion, frustration, and political awakening. It’s a full-bore, high-stakes, facing-up-to-death riposte, as urgent as it is compelling. At its core, Carner is keen to remind us, “I fear the color of my skin/ I fear the color of my kin” – and here he’s driven to document every unsparing detail. 

Loyle put it best, “One of the few songs made from a hateful place. I was angry at the world, frightened, and overwhelmed. It’s unfiltered. Really just a stream of consciousness that builds to an understanding that hate is rooted in fear. It reminds me of times the red mist takes over, and how alone you feel when the rest mist passes. Arrogant and self-righteous but at the same time vulnerable and somber. I listen to this one in my car at night. Especially after an argument when you need to get space and take a breath.”

Hate” comes accompanied by a powerful video shot by Carner himself alongside Greg Hackett, which feels like it perfectly distills the message of the track. Watch it HERE.

Of the many voices in music today, Carner’s is among the most vital and exciting, netting him Mercury and Brit Awards nominations and making him one of the most beloved artists on the UK music landscape.

The song was produced and written with the Australian likes of KLP. Illustrated as a pulsing dance hit sure to get you up out of your seat, the duo had a few words to say regarding the release of this hit. Peking Duk stated, “This song came together as a result of an impromptu jam we had after running 10ks and almost dying in the process. Heading straight into the studio we realized there was some fuego in the ideas we were recording and there was only one person to call to take it to the next level – KLP. We wrote the lyrics alongside the theme that the music created – A sweaty journey through thunder, mountaintops, marching to the drums and chanting as we follow each other. Slayyyter was down to jump on board and add her vocals to the mix and we couldn’t be more stoked with the magic that we now get to share with the world. Play it loud and scream it proud.”

The notarized duo has accumulated over 445 million streams internationally around a variety of streaming platforms combined with 27 million video views! There most noteworthy breakout hits include the 5 x platinum ‘Stranger,’ 4 x platinum ‘Fire’ and 3 x platinum ‘High.’
