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.

Anitta × Missy

Continuing a massive year, history-making Brazilian global pop superstar Anitta serves up a sexy new single entitled “Lobby” with Missy Elliott. Listen to “Lobby” HERE and check out the video directed by Arrad HERE.

The “Lobby” video made its broadcast premiere this morning on MTV Live, MTVU, MTV Biggest Pop and on the Paramount Times Square billboards. The track heralds the arrival of the Deluxe Edition of her critically acclaimed new album and Warner Records debut, Versions Of Me, on August 25.

Anitta initially teased “Lobby” with a clip on TikTok, inciting widespread anticipation from fans worldwide. On the track, a dancefloor-ready disco beat and thumping bassline give way to her instantly infectious chorus, “Kiss me from the roof to the lobby. Meanwhile, the legendary Missy Elliott pulls up with a classic verse highlighted by quotable double entendre and her inimitable flow. Anitta drummed up excitement with an early Instagram post of her and Missy Elliott where she admitted, “I honestly can’t believe what’s happening right now.

Earlier this month, she teased Versions of Me (Deluxe Edition) with the sizzling and seductive music video for the single “Gata.” In addition to trending on YouTube, it has already gathered over 4.5 million views and counting. Director Giovanni Bianco notably helmed the video.

Making headlines, Anitta garnered her career-first nomination for the MTV VMAs in the category of “Best Latin” for “Envolver.” She emerged as “the first Brazilian to be nominated for a solo project in the history of the VMAs.” Beyond the nod, she will make her “Envolver” broadcast performance premiere at the August 28 ceremony. Be sure to tune in!

Anitta has exceeded one benchmark after another during this historic year. She not only emerged as “the first female Brazilian solo act to perform at Coachella,” but she also earned a Guinness World Record as “the first Latin solo artist to reach #1 on the Spotify Daily Global 100” with “Envolver.” The latter also remains “the highest-charting single on the Billboard Hot 100 by a Brazilian soloist this century.”

Beyond nearing 1 billion streams, Versions of Me has incited unanimous critical applause. In a 4-out-of-5 star review, Rolling Stone hailed it as a “Bewitching global dance-floor experience,”and Stereogum summed it up best, “Anitta is coming for all of your awards.” With another 4-out-of-5 star rating,  NME crowned it “a searingly ambitious affair from a star who knows exactly what she wants,” and Billboard proclaimed, “Versions of Me is both retrospective and reflective, where Anitta is nothing but an open book.”

Versions of Me has exploded as the ultimate global Latin music experience of 2022, and she’s about to unleash its definitive version next week.

In April, Anitta released Versions of Me to praise from the likes of The New York Times, and more. The 15-track album was released in Spanish, English, and Portuguese and holds the record of biggest streaming week for a Brazilian artist on Spotify, with over 40 million streams. Following the album’s release, Anitta performed at Coachella where, as Variety proclaimed,  she “wowed” the crowd with a 45-minute set that featured a “mind-boggling mixture of genres, emphasizing the Brazilian and Latin music that rose her to stardom.”

Anitta is managed by Brandon Silverstein/Founder of S10 Entertainment.

POP MONTREAL 21st  EDITION

POP Montreal 21st edition is just weeks away. It’s time to get excited! The notion of “going back to normal” isn’t really POP Montreal‘s jam. They will forever be moving forward, doing their best to care of their community and create spaces that allow for all kinds of voices to come together.

Art POP
At Projet Casa and Rialto

Art POP will be hosting its annual group exhibition (for the first time at Project Casa gallery) alongside several satellite events that will bring film screenings, literary readings and workshops into various spaces surrounding POP Quarters in Mile End.  

//At a distance – from within//, presented at the Project Casa gallery
in the Plateau from Sept 15 to Oct 2.
At a distance from within is an exhibition that examines the exercise of placemaking within a diasporic context, while also connecting this theme to ecological allegories in relationality. In its Greek etymology, diaspora refers to the ancient Greek “dia speiro”, which translates “to sow over.” Originating from Jewish history and identity, the word has been expanded to define those who have been dispersed from a common origin. //At a distance – from within// draws from the allegory of the seed as an entity that creates a sense of rhizomatic placemaking. This relational form of placemaking refers then to the flourishing of communities, practices, and exchanges that come from diverse and multiple diasporas. 

With the work of : Holly Chang, Jin Heewoong, Joyce Joumaa, Kuh del Rosario, Laura Acosta and Santiago Tavera, Melissa Raymond and René Sandín, My-Van Dam, Natalia Lasalle-Morillo and Sofía Gallisá Muriente, Par Nair, Santiago Tamayo Soler, et Vanessa Godden.

Aside from the exhibition at Project Casa, Art POP will be partnering with Projet Tabloïde to present artwork from Toronto-based artist Holly Chang in the corner of Mont-Royal and Saint Hubert.

Expozine and Art POP present //LECTURES POP READS, 5th edition / / 
Sept 28 – 19h, Rialto Theatre

Art POP is also thrilled to renew its collaboration with LOVE (Québec)  a non-profit organization which seeks to support youth with programs that teach them about healthy relationships, building emotional intelligence, and that help them overcome the challenges they face. For this year’s LOVE and POP Montreal collaboration, a creative workshop was led by artists Dayna Danger and Megan kanerahtenha:wi Whyte. The young participating artists created a triptych to represent the past, present, and future relationships between humanity and nature across time, as well as the need for compassion towards the environment, oneself, and others.

LOS BUKIS Brings Thousands Of Fans Together At MetLife Stadium For The First 2022 Show Of Their Historic UNA HISTORIA CANTADA Reunion Tour

Don’t Miss A Last Opportunity To See The Band’s FINAL Planned U.S. Performances Coming Up This Month In Las Vegas, Los Angeles And Seattle  

Already the biggest-ever Latin Music stadium tour in the United States, and the #2 most successful worldwide tour of 2021, LOS BUKIS’ UNA HISTORIA CANTADA reunion tour added a new chapter to its legacy as the iconic Mexican music group began an added by popular demand set of limited 2022 dates Saturday Night at Met Life stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. Thousands of euphoric fans traveled from far and wide for the historic tour’s only East Coast stop and tenth overall performance, with the multiple generation audience packing the stadium to relive musical memories and making new ones to last a lifetime as Los Bukis delivered a marathon length concert of beloved hits that went late into the perfect summer night.

As August begins, the last window for Latin music fans to take part in this cultural milestone moment is fast approaching as LOS BUKIS FINAL PLANNED U.S. PERFORMANCES are approaching with these remaining concert dates in Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Seattle:

To mark their grand farewell to Los Angeles, this return visit will be a two-night stand with a total capacity that will break the band’s own record 27 years later.

“In the top tier of Mexican pop royalty… Los Bukis are the undisputed kings of Spanish-language romantic groups.’The Mexican Beatles’— whose ballads have soundtracked generations, but who last performed some 25 years ago — shocked their fans by announcing a comeback tour, Through the ‘80s and early ‘90s, Los Bukis dominated Billboard’s Latin charts.. Two-plus decades later, the band sold out the 70,000-seat SoFi Stadium within minutes — faster than the Rolling Stones. Upon adding a second date, Los Bukis sold it out once more at lightningspeed.” – LA TIMES COVER STORY

I had to make it here, it’s once in a lifetime… It was a packed house as adoring Los Bukis fans got to see the legendary band on stage for the first time in 25 years… the first show at the 70,000-seat venue sold out within minutes, prompting the addition of a second –…. their songs bring back a lifetime of memories… with sons & daughters surprising their parents with a gift of tickets” – KABC News

Maisie Peters – CATE’S BROTHER

British pop singer-songwriter Maisie Peters shares “Cate’s Brother (Breland’s Version),” a rework of her viral track featuring boundary-pushing singer-songwriter Breland, available now on all streaming platforms.

Last month Maisie took the stage at CBS‘s Late Late Show with James Corden for an electrifying performance of her viral single “Cate‘s Brother.” The episode was part of Corden’s special run of shows from London and landed in the midst of a 5 night stand at London’s Wembley Stadium supporting Ed Sheeran‘s “+–=÷x Tour.” Watch the performance HERE.

Recently announced, Maisie‘s North American headline tour dubbed ‘i’m telling the whole of america tour’ is selling fast. The 5-date run kicks off on November 4th with a sold-out show at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York and makes stops in Toronto (SOLD OUT), Chicago (VENUE UPGRADED), and San Francisco (SOLD OUT) before wrapping at The Wiltern in Los Angles on November 14th. For tickets and more information on Maisie’s upcoming North American tour please visit HERE.

Last month, Maisie unveiled “Cate’s Brother (Matt’s Version),” a stripped-back version of her viral song featuring British singer-songwriter Matt Maltese. No stranger to a TikTok hit – his own, ‘As The World Caves In’, exploded on the platform during lockdown – Matt joined Maisie to expand the ‘Cate’s Brother’ universe, and shared his response to the original story.

Released in May, the original version of “Cate’s Brother” arrived to critical acclaim and has already cracked 8.7M million streams. Based on a true story, Maisie initially teased the track live from a studio session in February and with an overwhelming response from her fanbase, continued working on the song in real time, sharing everything from Cate’s first listen reaction to debut performances. Upon release, Billboard praised the track as “fantastic” adding “the storytelling beneath the wiry pop-rock production is top-notch” while People declared Maisie as “pop’s next big thing.” Consequence of Sound described the track as “vibrant, playful and fun” and hailed, “If there was ever any doubt that Peters can oscillate between more delicate, introspective tracks over to crowd-ready bops like this, let ‘Cate’s Brother’ be the end of the conversation.”

Before amassing over half a billion global streams, Maisie spent time honing her craft in sessions across London, LA and Nashville, creating songs for her 2021 debut album ‘You Signed Up For This’ alongside the likes of Ed Sheeran, Steve Mac, Fred again.., Johnny McDaid, Miranda Cooper, and producers Joe Rubel (Tom Grennan, Benjamin Francis Leftwich), Afterhrs (Niall Horan, GRACEY), Rob Milton (Easy Life, Holly Humberstone) and Brad Ellis (Jorja Smith, Little Mix). With an innate gift for storytelling, crafting relatable, diary-entry songs, ‘You Signed Up For This‘ is both Maisie’s coming of age story and a love letter to girlhood; penned with the wit, charm and quiet confidence that has seen her ascend from busking on the streets of Brighton to signing with Ed Sheeran‘s Gingerbread Man Records and selling out her entire 2022 North American ‘You Signed Up For This‘ tour.

Returning home after her sold-out 19-date You Signed Up For This tour, which included standout shows at The El Rey and New York’s Webster Hall, Maisie is playing to a further 2.5 million+ people this summer as support on Ed Sheeran‘s ‘+–=÷x Tour’ in Europe and working on the follow up to her acclaimed debut album ‘You Signed Up For This.’

DREAMER BOY – HUES

The unpredictable singer/songwriter Dreamer Boy breaks down the lingering emotions of a breakup on his reflective new single “HUES,” out on June 30, 2022 via slowplay / Harvest Records. Listen HERE. The brooding alternative-tinged track comes on the heels of his summery acoustic-pop anthem “JUMPSHOT!,” which showcases the Nashville-based artist’s immense versatility.

“Seeing your world change around you, being in and out of love, and seeing the good and bad from the person you are with is what HUES is about,” says Dreamer Boy. “The actual idea of the walls changing colors as you are magnetically connected to a person but seeing how the good may be slipping away. This song represents the push and pull of that relationship, even after feeling used, and only being there for them, you end up back at their place falling into their world again.”

On HUES,” Dreamer Boy (born Zach Taylor) captures the fallout of love freshly lost. Opening with a slithery electric riff, he soon reaches for his acoustic, letting loose a vulnerable lament. “I still smell your perfume,” he sings, the familiar fragrance keeping him second-guessing. Even with a 90’s-style record scratch cutting through the mood, the sadness is palpable as the track builds to a dramatic, electrified climax.

With HUES,” Dreamer Boy continues to flex his eclectic sonic palette, following “the perfect carefree summer anthem, dripping with nostalgia” of “JUMPSHOT! according to V Magazine and the thrilling synth-pop of “OVER EVERYTHING.” Previously, he teamed up with multi-Platinum New Zealand star BENEE on ARE YOU LETTING GO?,” a captivating collaboration that brings out the ethereal sensibilities of both shapeshifting artists.

The two are currently on the road together on a North American tour, which close out on June 30 in Los Angeles. On tour, Dreamer Boy has been performing his newest singles alongside tracks from his acclaimed 2021 album All the Ways We Are Together. As open and emotional as songs like HUES are, it’s been an opportunity to connect with even more hearts and minds.

NETSKY F/ RITA ORA – BARRICADES

NETSKY & RITA ORA TEAM UP FOR NEW SINGLE ‘BARRICADES’ RELEASED TODAY VIA HELIX RECORDS

LISTEN TO ‘BARRICADES’ [HERE]

OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO PREMIERES TOMORROW 23RD JUNE 2022 5PM BST [HERE]

Today, global superstar Rita Ora joins forces with award-winning world renowned producer and DJ NETSKY on summer anthem “Barricades” released via Helix Records

Produced with super-producers Stargate, the brilliant collaboration between the headline artists ‘Barricades’ combines Netsky’s trademark energetic production style and knack for a soaring pop chorus with Rita Ora’s distinctive uplifting vocals to produce an anthem sure to soundtrack this summer. The track’s official music video will premiere tomorrow 23rd June 2022 at 5pm BST and features a captivating performance from Rita Ora filmed in Los Angeles by director Joe Mischo.

About their “Barricades” collaboration, Netsky says; “I’ve wanted to work with Rita since I heard ‘RIP’, so it was really special to get her and Stargate together in the studio again. We wanted to make a song that really showcased the power of her voice. The song is about the battles people go through being in love. We combined the simple beauty of pop with the power of breaks/drum and bass. I want to make dance music that has honesty and emotion – I think this song is that.”

Rita Ora adds; ‘It’s been amazing to work with Netsky on ‘Barricades’. It’s an honour to get to work with such a talented producer, especially on a track like this. Collaborating on another Drum n Bass record a decade after my first no.1 ‘Hot Right Now’ with DJ Fresh, feels like coming home, and I’m beyond excited for everyone to hear it. I hope they love dancing to it as much as I do!’
