TAEYANG × JIMIN

Global superstars TAEYANG (of BIGBANG fame) and Jimin of BTS come together for one of the most anticipated and unexpected K-Pop releases of the 2020s. Listen to “VIBE (feat. Jimin of BTS)” HERE via THEBLACKLABEL/Interscope Records

The magnitude of the collaboration cannot be understated. Not only is it a cross-generational release uniting superstars of different eras, it also connects two artists from the biggest boy bands of all time. If anyone can live up to that hype, it’s TAEYANG. The BIGBANG legend and lead singer has inspired generations of K-Pop artists.

It’s impossible to talk about K-Pop’s global ascent without discussing BIGBANG, one of the most influential and decorated acts in the late 2000s and 2010s. They were the first to gain global recognition, performing at stadiums worldwide for millions of fans in record-breaking numbers and have influenced countless acts in the genre for their various musical styles and self-production. Dubbed the “Kings of K-Pop,” BIGBANG is one of the best-selling boy bands of all time, winning over 100 awards, being on the New York Times “Best Concerts List”, and winning “Best Worldwide Act” at the MTV Europe Awards.

In addition to making history with the band, TAEYANG is also an accomplished solo artist, releasing four massively successful albums including two that have gone #1 on Billboard’s World Albums chart with a string of hits including “Eyes, Nose, Lips” which won “Song of the Year” on all the major Korean award shows.

As both TAEYANG and Jimin are vocalists with outstanding dancing ability, their collaboration is effortlessly smooth and flawless. TAEYANG and Jimin both partook in the song composition along with TEDDY, a long-time collaborator and Producer for TAEYANG and BIGBANG. TEDDY is also the Founder of THEBLACKLABEL. Also participating is an established lineup of Songwriters and Producers in Kush, Vince, and 24 from THEBLACKLABEL.

The track is accompanied by a suitably dazzling visual, which showcases the duo’s slick dance moves and undeniable charisma. Watch it HERE

With “VIBE”, TAEYANG and Jimin add another undeniable anthem to their already glittering discographies while celebrating this unprecedented moment in K-Pop history.

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.

Obie accepts applications from competent individuals regardless of where they live. The awards are given to encourage and recognize original performances, as well as to nurture and grow talents. The Obie Awards have given recognition to some of the most well-known playwrights and artists, such as Heidi Schreck, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Benj Pasek. For many years, the Obie awards were thought to be reserved for formal presentations. However, the awards were made informal to provide limitless opportunities for individuals worthy of recognition.

Most Obie Award winners received training at the actor’s studio, through moderated sessions, workshops, and readings. The Actor’s Studio is an important platform to foster creativity. It is an NGO whose members have been influential in many American theaters since World War II. It is one of the best training facilities for the Stanislavsky Method of Acting.

The complete line-up for the full broadcast season will be announced shortly, with new episodes premiering beginning January 7, 2023.

CJ PERRY talks about the surreal life via 360 MAGAZINE.

CJ Perry – The Surreal Life

CJ Perry stars on the reboot of The Surreal Life which airs on VH1 Mondays at 9 pm/8c. As of late, she engages in an introspective conversation with Vaughn Lowery on the 360 MAG podcast about mental health, homelessness in LA and her career in the WWE. Additionally, she sheds light on her newfound friendship with castmate Tamar Braxton.

The weekly episodic features eight notable TV personalities (CJ Perry, Frankie Muniz, Tamar Braxton, Kim Coles, Stormy Daniels, August Alsina, and Manny MUA) who live together under one roof while unmasking their vulnerabilities. The celebrities will also compete in a series of challenges each week. Watch The Surreal Life Trailer!

CJ Perry is best known as WWE Superstar “Lana” and “The Ravishing Russian” for the past decade. She grew up in Latvia and can speak the Russian language. Every morning, she eats five eggs and a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast to fuel her moves. The talented WWE superstar also acted in popular series such as E!’s “Total Divas” and “Pitch Perfect 1 & 2.” She stunned everyone at the London and New York Fashion Weeks and landed partnerships with red-hot brands like PrettyLittleThing and Fashion Nova

Perry spoke about the WWE’s controversial third-party policy that went into effect last year, which fans accused her of being the ‘straw that broke the camel’s back’ because she had a number of sponsorship deals through her Instagram. “I’ve been always in communication with WWE, always given them every single… Everything I do, I always get everything approved. I am, regardless of what people see me on screen throughout the years as the bad guy, the heel, the loud mouth, the drama, behind the scenes, I would say I try to do everything by the book. Because I deal with really bad anxiety and mental health issues and I just get too anxious if I feel like I’m breaking the rules, “Perry stated in an interview with ComicBook. She also mentioned in the Talk Is Jericho podcast that the only way she’d return to the wrestling scene is if a company offered a No-Cut clause in the contract. 

Aside from being a pro wrestler, Perry starred opposite Jonathan Rhys-Meyers in sci-fi thriller film WIFELIKE. The film tells the story of a widower named William (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) who receives an A.I. copy of his late wife, Meredith (Elena Kampouris). In the fight to end AI exploitation, an underground resistance attempts to infiltrate him by sabotaging the programming of the AI Meredith. So she begins to question her reality as memories of a past life begin to surface in a world where nothing is as it seems.

Perry also starred opposite Bruce Willis in sci-fi-action film COSMIC SIN. The story follows a group of warriors and scientists who must fight to protect and save their race when a hostile alien species with the power to infect and take over human hosts sets its sights on a futuristic human society. Perry will step into the role of “Sol” — who was originally written for a male. The character is described as “the best sniper in the galaxy and lead assassin fighting for the human race against an alien invasion.”

Perry had a breakout acting role in the fantasy/romance feature film titled, “Another Version of You” released in 2019. She was also an Executive Producer on the film and won the 2018 Audience Award at the Nashville Film Festival. The film talks about when the girl Diggsy’s always loved gets married to another man, he gets an opportunity to explore parallel universes to find another version of her who might love him back. Perry was drawn to her character Gwyneth since she is free-spirited and in the moment. “I love that free spirit about her,” she admitted. “Sometimes, her biggest strength is her greatest weakness. She just goes with the wind.”

San Roman gets messy with new single via 360 MAGAZINE

SAN ROMAN

SAN ROMAN, the solo music project of multi-disciplinary artist Alexa San Román, shares her brand new single, “Messy.” The song is the title track off her forthcoming debut album, set for release later this year. Written by Alexa herself, “Messy” is a nostalgic, pop/rock anthem that reflects on the mess that our lives can sometimes be and that even though it can feel frustrating and like you’re never going to get out of that mess, you just have to push through to the otherside. Listen to “Messy” now HERE.

SAN ROMAN also shares the accompanying self-directed and self-edited video for the track, which is premiering now on The Honey Pop. Viewers are taken through the halls of her childhood home as she provides the backing instrumentals for the track, only furthering the DIY approach to Alexa’s new solo project. Watch the video now HERE.

About the song, Alexa says, “The title track of my upcoming album, ‘Messy’ is about running in place. That feeling when you try to punch something underwater & the moment of slight amusement when things are so bad you can’t help but to laugh. It’s finding the motivation to nonetheless still get up outta bed and wade through the metaphorical mess. ‘When my world fell down around me, I caught fire but I’ll be fine.’”

“Messy” follows her debut single, “Stay Where You Are,” a hard-hitting alt/rock song about people who don’t want to put in the work to change their bad habits, and blame everyone else in the process.

Born in Los Angeles & raised in New York, Alexa began her music career in 2005 when she received her first guitar as a Christmas gift. Growing up on Long Island, NY her first steps into music were through the hardcore scene, earning her first role of guitarist at 16 in the local favorite Love, Robot. Soon after the band realized her vocal chops were being overlooked she was promoted to front woman and the band would go on to enjoy 10 more years of success with her at the helm, eventually breaking into the coveted Warped Tour scene and gaining fans around the world. It was during this time she started honing in on her visual talents, filming music videos for her own band and eventually breaking out to do others. To this day alongside her musical endeavors she is in high demand as a director and has shot for Journeys, D’Addario, Hopeless Records, Fearless Records and countless independent artists.

After laying the foundation for her future in music and growing up alongside Love, Robot the group disbanded and thus was the birth of her second project, the alt-rock duo group Heirsound. Here she would continue with her signature brand of music- strong yet melodic guitar leads and thoughtful emotional lyricism and find success and a fanbase that to this day is still consuming their music. Following three successful EPs the duo posted a public farewell statement and went their separate ways.

After her five year hiatus from music since Heirsound’s disbandment, Alexa San Román is back with a fervor, adapting her last name as her newest project’s name and moving forward with only one bandmate- herself. SAN ROMAN is a culmination of years of musical experience and at the same time a fresh start for the singer. Citing loss and the pain of watching time pass as some of her main inspiration, her newest record is a diary entry put on play, loud. San Román’s newest venture is the arrival of an artist that is finally ready to stand alone.
