About Stunna Gambino:

Stunna Gambino’s made a career out of speaking up. Merging expressive vocals with unfiltered honesty, the 20-year-old rapper creates gripping trench tales of triumph and heartbreak to explore his emotions, and in the process, he’s giving others the courage to raise their voice, too. Raised on the sounds of Lil Wayne, Alicia Keys, Green Day, Mariah Carey, and more, Gambino wrote his first rhymes at around the age of 9. By age 12, he began saving money to hit up a recording studio in Harlem and record his first solo tracks. When he was 14, the  songs he uploaded to SoundCloud regularly eclipsed 80,000 streams. In 2021, after releasing his glittering Underrated project in 2019, he continued building his buzz when he tapped in with The Kid Laroi and Polo G for “Not Sober,” a melodic rumination on escaping pain through self-medication. With spurts of emotional transparency and slurred crooning, the track earned over 105 million Spotify streams, making it his biggest appearance yet. Riding the momentum of Vultures Don’t Cry, Gambino wants to collect platinum plaques while diving into the worlds of art and acting. From there, who knows? “There’s so much shit I wanna do, and I got one foot in the door right now,” he reveals. “This isn’t even the beginning.”

LIL TECCA – FASTER

Launching another era now, multi-platinum rapper Lil Tecca unleashes his new single and video “Faster” today.

Listen to “Faster”: HERE
Watch “Faster”: HERE

The skittering beat gives the track a distinct jolt as Tecca tears through verses with undeniable charisma. Between bold and blunt bars, he carries a catchy chorus, You moving faster. In the accompanying visual, he lives the high life surrounded by models in the back of a luxury car and in an opulent hotel room. He surveys the night skyline alone as he raps in the midst of penthouse debauchery.

It sets the stage for more music to come from Tecca very soon.

Tecca dominated the US on his “Tecca Loves You” tour and he will continue to take stages by storm with his performance at Rolling Loud New York on Saturday, September 24 and on his tour that continues in Europe starting in Zürich Switzerland on October 13 and ending on November 7 in Lisbon, Portugal. More information on the tour is available HERE

Tecca’s latest album, We Love You Tecca 2, notably marked his third Top 10 debut on the Billboard Top 200. It also bowed at #6 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart, making for his third Top 10 debut on the respective chart as well. Meanwhile, “Never Left” and “Repeat It” vaulted on to the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Top 30 and has already tallied over 800 million global streams. Right out of the gate, We Love You Tecca 2 received widespread acclaim. HYPEBEAST cited among “the 10 best projects” of the week. HotNewHipHop proclaimed, “Lil Tecca has already proven to be a solid hitmaker in the industry, and with each new album, he impresses his fans with his summer vibes, catchy melodies, and solid hooks.” HipHopDX highlighted his “infectious jubilance,” and wrote, “Tecca’s bubbling raps have always straddled the line between Hip Hop and pop, finding catchy melodies throughout.” REVOLT declared the album “has more hits than a great number of artists twice his age.”

The sequel carried on the legacy of its predecessor, We Love You Tecca. In 2019, the original mixtape bowed at #4 on the Billboard Top 200, went platinum, and amassed 6.6 billion-plus streams.

Posting up over 8 billion streams and claiming multiple platinum certifications, Lil Tecca has quietly cemented himself as one of rap’s most vital rising superstars. In 2020, his full-length debut album, Virgo World, bowed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 and yielded two Hot 100 entries—namely “Dolly” with Lil Uzi Vert and “When You Down” feat. Lil Durk with Polo G. HotNewHipHop praised it as “a great starting point for the 18-year-old. Tecca first exploded with his platinum-certified mixtape, We Love You Tecca, and his breakout quadruple-platinum single “Ransom” in 2019. He reeled in acclaim from New York Times, Billboard, HYPEBEAST, Complex, and many others in addition to selling out shows on his first headline run, the We Love You Tecca World Tour. He launches into his next chapter with more new music coming this year.

J. Balvin × Mae Miller × Neiked × Polo G. – Better Days

Colombian superstar J. Balvin has joined NEIKED, Mae Muller, and Polo G for an irresistible update of “Better Days”—the smash single that shot to #23 on the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this month, with nearly 300 million streams worldwide. Hailed as one of the “best songs of 2021” by the Los Angeles Times, “Better Days” is the brainchild of artist duo NEIKED and centers on an intoxicating vocal performance from Mae, the fast-rising British singer/songwriter recently named a Billboard Chartbreaker. Listen to by NEIKED x Mae Muller x J Balvin (feat. Polo G) HERE.

On the dynamic new version of “Better Days,” J Balvin drops in after the first chorus and delivers a swaggering verse in Spanish. Flaunting his super-smooth flow and undeniable charisma, Reggaeton’s Global Ambassador adds a powerful new energy to the dance-ready track. With its carefree collision of bouncy beats and shimmering grooves, “Better Days” features production from NEIKED (the Swedish artist duo whose hit single “Sexual” has surpassed 600 million streams globally and cracked the Top 10 in 11 countries).

“J Balvin is a true renaissance artist, and our records are always about finding that fresh nuance,” says NEIKED.” His style melts perfectly together with the uniqueness of Mae and Polo and we were thrilled to have him join the song. This is just one of the many pieces fans can expect from the coming NEIKED puzzle.”

Says Mae Muller, “I’m a huge J Balvin fan and he killed this! I went to Primavera Sound in 2019 and saw him live so it’s just a stunning full circle moment for me to have him be a part of “Better Days.'”

Released in September, the original version of “Better Days” debuted at #57 on the Billboard Hot 100, amassed over 65 million streams in just five days, earned Top 10 charting across Spotify and Apple Music, emerged as a Top 5 trending sound on both TikTok and Snap, and recently held steady as the #1 most added song on Pop radio for two consecutive weeks. Meanwhile, its fantastically retro video has garnered over 12 million views to date.

“Better Days” is the first of NEIKED’s highly anticipated releases that follow the duo’s long seen success. Already well recognized hit-makers who have collaborated with Nile Rodgers, EARTHGANG, Muni Long, 24kGoldn, X Ambassadors, and writers Freddy Wexler (Justin Bieber, Kanye West), Jason Evigan (Dua Lipa, Madonna), Justin Tranter (Ariana Grande, Julia Michaels) and Albin Nedler (Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato) 2022 will see the multi-instrumentalists perform on their biggest stages to date.

About J Balvin

“Reggaeton’s Global Ambassador”—5-time LATIN GRAMMY winner J Balvin is now one of the Top 10 streaming artists globally on Spotify, regardless of language, and has developed a legion of fans worldwide. Hailed by Billboard as “the biggest breakout act Latin music has seen in many years” and Pitchfork as “the face of modern Reggaeton,” Balvin is leading a second generation of Musica Urbana stars that have propelled Latin music to an unprecedented global embrace. His latest album, JOSE, arrived on the heels of an eventful summer, following the release of chart-dominating singles “Que Mas Pues?” featuring Argentinian singer Maria Becerra, “Que Locura,” and “In Da Getto” featuring Skrillex. With his song “Un Nota” with Sech recently topping the Latin airplay charts, J Balvin officially landed his 33rd #1 at Latin Airplay, more than anyone else in history, cementing him as Latin music’s biggest success story of the decade. With his music and impact on the culture, Balvin has secured himself as not only a leader of Reggaeton but as a torchbearer of the new state of Latin music by continuously expanding the limits of the genre and paving the way for “la nueva escuela.”

About Mae Muller

The “Better Days” update arrives as Mae gears up for her highly anticipated debut U.S. shows, a three-date run with stops in New York City, Chicago, and Los Angeles this March (see below for the full list of dates and venues, and purchase tickets HERE. Featuring special guests, Mae’s first-ever U.S. performances will be followed by a rescheduled U.K. tour in April.

Recently named a YouTube Trending Artist on the Rise, Mae made her U.S. primetime television debut by performing “Better Days” on The Voice in November, then took the stage at “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest” the following month. With her radiant vocals and magnetic presence, she made major waves in 2020 with her much-acclaimed Capitol Records debut EP, no one else, not even you: an eight-track project built on her fearlessly honest yet free-spirited approach to songwriting. Created with producers/co-writers like Rick Nowels (Madonna, Lana Del Rey), Jimmy Napes (Sam Smith, Alicia Keys), Skyler Stonestreet (Ariana Grande, Dua Lipa), and Kenny Beats (FKA twigs, Ed Sheeran), the EP brings Mae’s raw vulnerability to an immaculately composed but unpredictable brand of pop music.
