Rvssian – Only The Team

PLATINUM CERTIFIED PRODUCER RVSSIAN RELEASES NEW SINGLE “ONLY THE TEAM”

WATCH NOW!

Platinum-certified producer and artist, Rvssian has today released a new song “Only One Team” featuring young hitmakers Lil Tjay and Lil Mosey. The single has all the makings of a hit single with its synth laced beats and Rvssian’s pension for addictive melodies. “Only One Team” is a departure from Rvssian’s usual dancehall and Latin trap sounds but an evolution of the work he’s done following past collaborations with French Montana, Cardi B, 21 Savage and more. The song follows previously released single “IDKW” featuring Shenseea, Swae Lee and Young Thug and appears on his label Rich Immigrants, a joint venture with Interscope Records. Speaking more on the making of the song, Rvssian had this to share:

“This song is a new sound, coming from Lil TJay’s past music with added rock influence in the guitar production and his unique flow and melodies. Bringing in Lil Mosey and his signature cadence make the whole thing certified.” Lil Mosey added “Rvssian and I have been talkin’ about getting a song together for a min. Me and Tjay both young and getting money so it’s a dope moment for our generation.”

About Blenda:

Artist BLENDA, born Blenda Shimba Kabondo was raised in Sweden in a small Stockholm suburb, raised by her two Congolese parents. With her father being guitarist in their local church, BLENDA was early introduced to music and has since then studied jazz and has her roots in traditional gospel. BLENDA decided early in 2018 to take a break from music to go deeper and find her authority as a woman. Her faith in God and her feminist ideals and strong Congolese roots has created a new raw sound. She experiments with synthetic harmonies and melodies from Congo mixed up with a progressive touch of Pop, RnB, and tribe. 

In 2019 BLENDA was flown out to New York, being the first time overseas she ended up signing a record deal with legendary record label Star Trak Entertainment and Def Jam Recordings and which makes her one of the few Swedish artists to sign an american record deal and will mark her new journey on international water.

The Different Fashion Styles Across Music Genres

For a lot of people, music and fashion are inseparable. Look at recording artists across genres, and you’ll see the importance of fashion into their craft and how they want their fans to see them. Fashion creates a distinctive style, and it’s one way for music artists and fans to channel their creativity and self-expression. 

For every music genre, there’s a fashion style that’s unique to it. When you talk about Hip-Hop, there’s the loose clothing and bling-bling. In country music, you’ll often see the classic cowboy hat and denim jacket. Although some things have changed in music over the years, this fusion of fashion and music is still there. 

So, if you want to dress according to your favorite music genre and know the different outfits inspired by your favorite music artists, read this article. 

Pop Music

Pop music has a peppy and youthful vibe to it. It’s characterized by lively beats and lyrics about life and love in general. This high-spirited and happy-go-lucky aspect of popular music is also translated into the fashion style of pop artists and their fans. 

Outfits of pop stars are sure to stand out among the crowd. Bold accessories, flashy clothing, high-waisted shorts, colorful hairstyles, you name it. It’s something that’s out of the ordinary. Since pop music icons are a staple in television and social media, it’s no surprise that their distinctive style creates waves in the fashion industry. 

Electronic Dance Music

Electronic Dance Music (EDM) was introduced on the music scene in the late 1980s. It’s the favorite music to play in nightclubs, with the help of a DJ tinkering on a turntable and a mixer. Like popular music, there’s also a youthful aspect to EDM. After all, EDM music is for dancing and partying. 

Although there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to EDM fashion, what’s certain is that it’s about making a bold statement. EDM fashion is so colorful and graphic, and it incorporates wild patterns, unique materials and funky colors. 

For instance, you can often see neon-colored sneakers and edgy clothing worn by people who love EDM music. 

R&B

Rhythm and Blues, or popularly known as R&B, often step in to the territory of popular music. But this music genre is closely linked to Soul and Blues, and, later, some aspects of Hip-Hop are also incorporated into R&B tracks. 

When it comes to its fashion, there’s a dash of class and sophistication to R&B. You often see Justin Timberlake and Usher wearing suits and ties in their music videos. For female artists, the trend is wearing high-waisted jeans and crop tops, which exude a combination of class and sexiness. 

Fashion accessories often include dress shoes, gold and silver jewelry, and luxury watches such as Nomos and Rolex. 

Rock

For sure, you know rock music. It’s one of the ageless music genres of all time, and it’s still popular today. Rock music is also a fashion-oriented genre. It has inspired the classic rebel look that often includes ripped jeans, leather shoes, leather jackets, band t-shirts and edgy accessories. 

Country and Folk Music

Country and folk music is known for using acoustic guitar, harmonica, banjos, violin, among other instruments. Country and folk singers also have a distinctive Southern accent in their singing voice, and their lyrics talk about life and romance. 

Artists in this music genre dress themselves up in Western-style wear, such as cowboy hats, boots, denim jeans, denim jackets and sundresses. Fashion accessories often include bandana, tassel necklace, bracelets, crossbody bag, among others. 

Hip-Hop

Hip-Hop music is arguably the most popular music genre today. It started in the 1970s in New York, and today almost all of the top songs in music charts are Hip-Hop tracks. 

This music genre has also made a huge contribution to the fashion industry. Hip-Hop fashion, also sometimes called big fashion, is characterized by baggy pants, big jewelry, baseball caps, hoodies and sneakers. 

But, right now, Hip-Hop artists are more fluid when it comes to what they wear. Tight jeans and designer clothing are now also worn by rappers and Hip-Hop artists. 

Reggae 

Reggae music traces its origin in Jamaica. It’s typically played in 4/4 time signature, with prominent bass lines, and off-beat rhythmic style. 

Aside from the incredible sound of Reggae, it’s also famous for popularizing one of the most laid-back fashion styles that we see today. Reggae fashion features beachwear and colorful accessories, such as bracelets, necklaces, sandals, and beanies (often with the colors of the flag of Jamaica). 

Takeaway

Every music genre has a unique fashion style. After all, music and fashion go hand-in-hand when it comes to promoting creativity and self-expression. If you want to dress according to your favorite music genre, take note of the fashion outfits and accessories mentioned in this article. 

John Newman x “Stand By Me”

JOHN NEWMAN RELEASES NEW SINGLE “STAND BY ME” OUT NOW

LISTEN HERE

John Newman who has written and performed on some of the biggest anthems of the last seven years, bursting onto the scene as the co-writer and voice on Rudimental’s classic “Feel The Love”, releases his brand new single “Stand By Me” today. Listen HERE.

Fans will have a chance to hear John performing the single live for the first time on the BBC’s annual Sports Relief Telecast on Friday March 13th. Newman, one of the UK’s best loved and more enduring artists has enjoyed three #1 singles in the UK and built a large and fervent following. “Stand By Me” was co-written by John alongside Swedish collective BLNK collective who wrote “Paris” for Chainsmokers, and was produced by Steve Mac who has contributed to 30 #1 singles in the UK and is best known for his work with Ed Sheeran, Mabel, Little Mix, Pink and Jess Glynne to name but a few.

It was the global #1 smash ”Love Me Again” and subsequent #1 platinum certified debut album, Tribute which also spawned the huge hit single “Come & Get It”, that established the Yorkshire-man as one of the UK’s most singular talents and consistently successful artists. Global monster “Blame”, which sold over 4 million worldwide, gave John his third UK #1 single following Rudimental’s “Feel The Love” and his own chart-topping debut “Love Me Again”. Indeed Newman has sold over 6 million singles world-wide to date. Since then John Newman has travelled the world, headlining some of the most legendary venues and performing on some of the biggest stages.

While John’s career has reached some wonderful and memorable highs, his personal life has brought serious health issues in the shape of a recurring brain tumor condition, which has required constant monitoring. Thankfully the signs are that everything is under control and manageable. In the last year John has also recently revealed his entrepreneurial side by launching a high-end exclusive chauffeur service. Stay tuned for further details. And finally combining his love of cars, music and conversation, John is also set to launch his own podcast, which will feature a mix of famous friends and interesting characters far from the showbiz spotlight whose paths he has crossed over the last decade.

CHECK OUT ‘12345 (GET REAL)’ BY LEVEN KALI HERE:

“12345 (Get Real)” arrives on the heels of “Homegirl”, his single with Smino and Topaz Jones which was referred to by THE FADER as romantic, late-night music. Kali’s last project, ‘Leven Kali: Low Tide’ featured Leven’s coveted single “Do U Wrong” featuring Syd (The Internet) which amassed over 38 million global streams, and received critical acclaim from Pitchfork, The New York Times, Billboard, I-D and more.

About Leven Kali:

Just out of his teens, the artist began making a name for himself with some high-profile collaborations, including features on tracks by Drake and Playboi Carti in 2017.

Following blockbuster careers led by global smash singles, billions of streams worldwide and platinum albums the UK’s leading producer/songwriter Jonas Blue and UK superstar Paloma Faith, have unveiled their electrifying collaborative new single “Mistakes.” Listen to the track and watch the lyric video HERE via Astralwerks.

Coming together naturally, Jonas and Paloma are the perfect pairing. After long admiring each other’s output, and both having a desire to someday work together, “Mistakes” now arrives as their collaborative hit-in-waiting. Speaking of the track, Jonas comments; “Mistakes is such a special one for me, I’ve wanted to work with Paloma for a long time, and this just connected the dots for us to be able to collaborate in a perfect way. I’m happy I managed to get some influences in there from my UK House and Garage upbringing too.” Paloma adds; “I feel so excited about ‘Mistakes.’ I am a huge fan of MNEK who co-wrote the song and of the dance power of Jonas. I can’t help but move to this tune. It’s a banger!”

Jonas Blue will arrive stateside once again for a performance at the famed Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas on Saturday, May 16—the performance marks a mighty return as Jonas made his U.S. festival debut at EDC Las Vegas just three years ago.
