Regarding the single, she exclusively spoke to Rolling Stone and shared, “I am so happy to finally be able to share Coast with the world. This song is deeply personal to me and was influenced by my California roots and the music I grew up listening to with my family. The only artist I envisioned collaborating with on this track was my friend, Anderson .Paak. Knowing he loved the song enough to lend his genius to it is absolutely surreal, and I am forever grateful to have his support. This is only the beginning and I can’t wait to share the rest of what’s to come with you all soon.”

Meanwhile, the publication praised the song as vibey, electric guitar-backed pop earworm.”

Anderson .Paak echoed her excitement, “Hailee is a good friend and I was already a fan of her work on the big screen, but when she played me “Coast” I was honestly in shock at how fire it was! You don’t hear too many pop records with an infectious groove like that. It’s a great summer song and I think our voices surprisingly blend together really well.”

”Coast” sets the stage for more music to come from Hailee Steinfeld. Back in 2020, she served up the Half Written Story EP. Reeling in nearly half-a-billion streams, it boasted fan favorites such as “I Love You’s” and “Wrong Direction.” Of the EP, i-D claimed it was “a searingly honest collection of proper pop songs’ with ‘f*ck you excellence,” while Forbes declared, “When you hear her intimate, her attitude in the joyous pop, the production and the passion she brings to the first five songs it is clear her love of music is genuine.” Meanwhile, V Magazine raved, “It’s a raw and emotive body of work for the starlet.

Get ready for more music from Hailee Steinfeld soon! She’s on the eve of her biggest, boldest, and brightest chapter yet.

About Issam Alnajjar

Issam Alnajjar is leading the way for a new generation of artists from the Middle East and North Africa to take over the global music scene. An 18-year-old musician from Amman, Jordan, he had been creating music for a couple of years, studying the songwriting of pop artists like Shawn Mendes and Ed Sheeran and admiring the creativity of iconic artists like Queen and The Weeknd, when he got some inspiration for his breakout hit “Hadal Ahbek.” After dropping a preview video for the song on Instagram, anticipation from his fans grew larger and larger. By the time he finally released “Hadal Ahbek,” with Issam’s silky voice and infectious lyrics and melody, the popularity of it exceeded his expectations. Issam says he had only expected 10k views total for his song. That was shattered in one day, and eventually it grew to 100k views a week. And on TikTok, the song only grew bigger and now currently sits atop dozens of music charts on Spotify, Apple Music, and Deezer. For any artist to have a top song is an accomplishment. But what makes Issam’s feat more incredible is that he achieved this with a song sung in Arabic.

JORDAN MCGRAW – SHE

JORDAN MCGRAW RELEASES NEW SINGLE SHE, DEBUT EP COMING SOON

Emerging as one of the year’s boldest breakthrough talents, pop singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Jordan McGraw shares a new single entitled SHE.

SHE stands out as yet another head-nodding bop from Jordan. Funkified guitar weaves in and out of a slick beat as his voice flutters from hypnotic verses into an unshakable and undeniable hook rife with high-register flare. Painting a vivid picture, he sings, “She likes to talk in her sleep. A simple conversation turning into a scene. She likes to fight in her sleep. An irrational account of an encounter with me.

His most recent single HER has already racked up over half-a-million cumulative streams and counting. Right out of the gate, E! Online praised it as “ripe for dancing,” while American Songwriter touted its “refined glimmers of far-reaching sonic approaches that coalesce into a universally resonant song story. The Honey Pop hailed it as “an absolute earworm!” Alfitude summed it up best as an “infectiously catchy slice of funky retro-pop that will stay in your head all day.” Not to mention, he spoke to French Fries Magazine about its composition.

Everything paves the way for his first EP—coming very soon. He’s bringing the funk back to pop in 2021!

Making headlines, Jordan also took the stage for a showstopping performance of HER on The Late Late Show with James Corden. He also sat down with Corden for an interview. Jordan also recently played an MTV IG TV Jam Session.

The Texas-born and Los Angeles-based pop maverick strikes a singular balance between eighties synth-craft and 21st century unpredictability, yielding a bop suited to any era.

“I’m a nineties kid making eighties music in 2021,” he affirms. “All of my favorite things are from the nineties. At the same time, the eighties were so absurd and overly polished that they were still cool,” he says.  “During the process of recording the song, I was chasing my now-wife,” he explains. “While I was on tour, I was trying to figure out how to woo her. It was the perfect storm of the song growing with the actual process of she and I growing into what we are now. Everything worked out naturally.”

Jordan McGraw established himself as an outlier right out of the gate. He went from touring with iconic pop punk bands to generating millions of streams and supporting Jonas Brothers on the record-breaking HAPPINESS BEGINS Tour. Signed to Let’s Get It Records! by Joe Jonas, he arrives with more music in 2021 as he prepares his debut EP for release soon.

ABOUT JORDAN MCGRAW
If your favorite nineties-born pop rocker took a time machine to 1983 and brought synths with him back to the twenty-twenties, what would it sound like?

Enter Jordan McGraw. He takes familiar sounds and turns them into fresh feels, presenting his own “Modern Day Nostalgia. In essence, he not only blends genres, but he also fuses eras, serving up future-facing pop with unassuming rockstar ambition sharpened by a punk edge.

Eventually, he wound up in City (Comma) State and hit the road on a 2010 sold-out tour with multiplatinum pop punk institution All Time Low. During 2012, he launched Stars In Stereo, releasing two albums with the group and supporting genre favorites such as The Used on tour.
