Peking Duk × Slayyyter – Honest

The high-engery, Australian music duo Peking Duk start off 2022 with a bang, debuting their hot new single ‘Honest featuring the one and only Slayyyter.

Stream ‘Honest’ (feat. Slayyyter) HERE and catch the visualizer HERE.

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.’

Taylor Swift, 360 MAGAZINE

Taylor Swift’s Lover

Taylor Swift’s top selling album of the year, Lover [Republic Records], officially crosses 1 million in U.S. consumption in under two weeks and sold more albums in 48 hours than any album this year. 

Cementing Lover’s status as a worldwide critical phenomenon, Taylor captures #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Songwriters Chart for the third consecutive week, anchored by “Lover,” “You Need To Calm Down” and “ME!” featuring Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco. Additionally, she remains the #1 most-streamed female artist globally on Spotify this week.

On Monday, she delivered a powerhouse performance for the Lenovo Presents: The City of Lover Concert at The L’Olympia Theater in Paris, France. For the first time ever, she performed new music from Lover live in front of fans hailing from over 37 countries.

Check out video HERE and what critics had to say about it below. 
“She shows that she is a songwriter in the lineage of Emmylou Harris, Judy Collins or Joan Baez.” – Paris Match

“An icon of America, the number one pop star” – Le Parisien

“Proves to us that she is a true musician and an excellent singer and that her songs go the extra mile without artifice.” – Le Parisien
“Both a thank you to her fanbase and a celebration of how far Swift has come since releasing her debut album over a decade ago, The City of Lover concert was a triumph.” – NME (5 Star Review)

“The real success of the concert, however, came from Swift’s faith in her music. There was no big light show, no pyrotechnics, just a basic band, four backing singers and Swift herself, bringing to life songs that captured in a straightforward way everyday aspects of life and love.” – The Times (5 Star Review)

“Taylor made a triumphant return to the stage…” – The Sun 

“Her performance confirmed her status as the consummate modern pop superstar” – The Sun 

“Tay­lor Swift woos a petit Parisian crowd” – The Face

“For a while, Swift could be back in Nashville’s Bluebird Café as she sits on a stool and strums her way beatifically through Death By A Thousand Cuts, Cornelia Street and The Man, attacking her guitar on the latter as if it were the patriachy itself. She then switches to piano (and, by the way, only Swift’s audience could be sent into raptures by someone wheeling on a baby grand) for a heart-wrenching, ebb-and-flow segue between All Too Well, Red and the new album’s Daylight, songcraft and showmanship in perfect harmony.”  – Music Week

“The emotional intelligence and precision in her lyrics, and adept ability to move between instruments, are Swift’s greatest strengths. Still, her voice is lovely, particularly on the tender “Lover”.” – The i 

“This intimate night proved superstars still conjure unexpected magic and mystery of their own.”– The i 


“Professionalism of the entertainer shines with her assets – flawless precision, a relentless stream of instant melodies celebrated by fans singing in unison, a luminous bracelet at the wrist – interspersed with pure emotions and choreographic stillness…” –  Le Monde

“Only on the guitar and then on the piano, Taylor Swift shows (to those who still doubted it), that she is above all a musician, author and composer… and its magical.” – Tele Loisirs

“A simple and emotional concert, which reveals a new and even more fascinating artist” – Rolling Stone Italy

She accelerated the sales of Lover to historic heights by not only delivering the highest-selling album of 2019, but also achieving “the biggest first-week total for any album since her own Reputation in 2017,” according to Billboard. Accumulating number ones in over 100 countries, the record is also China’s most consumed full-length international album of 2019, besting the previous record holder by double. Total global streams are over 2.5 billion to date.

Lover is the ten-time GRAMMY® Award-winning, record-breaking superstar’s seventh album. Taylor‘s juggernaut arrives as a fan favorite and currently ranks as her highest rated critically acclaimed album on Metacritic.
