Global superstar, producer and DJ, Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll – a.k.a. Kygo, teams up with Sasha Sloan for new track “I’ll Wait.” Listen HERE. The song is now available across all streaming platforms and will be featured on Kygo’s upcoming third album Golden Hour out via Sony Music International/Ultra Records/RCA Records.
The collaboration reunites Kygo and Sloan who previously worked together on “This Town” for Kygo’s Stargazing EP in 2017.
“I’ll Wait” follows the release of Kygo’s single “Like It Is” ft. Tyga and Zara Larsson and Kygo’s “Higher Love” with Whitney Houston, the latter of which has more than 651 million audio and video streams combined and charted at Top 40 radio. “Higher Love” is a cover of the 1986 Steve Winwood classic. The Whitney Houston estate presented Kygo with the archival recording of Whitney’s version, which was previously released as a Japan-only bonus track on her I’m Your Baby Tonight physical album in 1990. Upon hearing the Whitney track, Kygo raced into the studio, thrilled to be given the opportunity to make music with one of the greatest female vocalists of all time. “Higher Love” was written by Steve Winwood, Will Jennings and produced by Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll and Narada Michael Walden.

Bursting out of the lo-fi hip-hop scene, Powfu has premiered the official video for his explosive track “death bed (coffee for your head)” featuring UK singer beabadobee today – watch HERE. The video, which was brought to life by director duo BEDROOM, playfully follows Powfu and his girlfriend in his hometown of Vancouver, Canada.
The track is a staple on TikTok with over 3M videos created to date. “death bed” made its Billboard Hot 100 debut last week, catapulting up the charts with major radio adds rolling in internationally. The song has over 250M combined audio/video streams to date worldwide. “death bed” is #6 on Spotify’s Global chart and #12 in the US, while sitting Top 10 in 15 countries. Watch Powfu breakdown the lyrics for the track on Genius’ Verified HERE.
The 21-year-old Canadian artist started recording in the basement of his parents’ home and started releasing music on Soundcloud while still in high school. He would steal his dad’s mic (Faber Drive) and ended up purchasing himself a laptop as recording quickly became his favorite hobby. After finalizing his image and sound, his numbers started rapidly increasing, gaining millions of streams over multiple platforms. He has collaborated with many artists on the rise such as Rxseboy, Guardin, and Snow. His genre can vary from chill-lo-fi to hype-punk, as he finds inspiration through older punk-rock bands as well as newer hip-hop artists such as G-Eazy and Madeintyo.
Today, GRAMMY Award-nominated powerhouse producer, artist, DJ, and Taylor Gang affiliate TM88 drops “Tokyo Nights (feat. MadeinTYO).” Listen HERE.
The track comes in hot following TM88 producing “P2” off of Lil Uzi Vert’s Billboard Top 200 number 1 album, Eternal Atake in addition to following up from TM88 & Smokepurpp’s joint single “RR.”
“Tokyo Nights (feat. MadeinTYO)” has a late-night cruising vibe to it. The track features fellow Atlanta native, MadeinTYO, known for his hit “Uber Everywhere,” rapping about the ladies and foreign cars encountered in a night out in Tokyo over TM88’s tranquil yet vigorous beats.
“I really wanted to bring the feel of a real Tokyo night to life racing through the neon light streets with a couple of beautiful women and just living the night of my life with my bro MadeinTYO,” says TM88.
The track came together organically at TM88’s home studio in LA when he was cooking up beats with all of his homeboys around -Southside, Travis Scott, Trinidad James, Sheck Wes, and Wheezy. TM88 recalls MadeinTYO pulled up and was ready to work after the duo already made 8 songs together that week. The rest was history. TM88 is a staple in the Atlanta trap scene and hip-hop.
As an artist he holds over 70 million streams and has collaborated with Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug, Future, Juicy J, Gunna, Moneybagg Yo, Wiz Khalifa, Project Pat, Lil Yachty, Valee and more. Under his belt, TM88 has production credits building an impressive discography of both superstars and rising rappers from Drake “Company”, to 21 Savage “Drip”, to Travis Scott “Nothing but Net” to the late XXXTENTACION “going down!”. Not to mention TM88’s somber infused beats are a key component to Lil Uzi Vert’s global smash-hit “XO Tour Llif3.”
The record is currently seven-times platinum certified from the RIAA. Cementing himself as a singular voice within Atlanta, TM88 maintains his position at the forefront of the pack. In fact, he does more than just influence the style of his hometown; he regularly pushes it to level up. He went from selling beats for $40 a pop at 12-years-old to co-founding 808 Mafia and eventually arriving as a solo musical force on the heels of a string of smashes.
“TM88 (is) serving as one of the hottest track makers in the industry now”
“The producer’s enchanting beats have served as the base to a plethora of hits along the years if you check the liner notes”
Vocalist/producer/multi-instrumentalist EDEN releases “isohel” today via all digital partners. “isohel” is the fourth track from his upcoming sophomore album – no future- out February 14th via Astralwerks. His wandering guitar work and gently devastating vocal performance channel the ache of reminiscence. Download/Stream the track HERE. A video for “isohel,” filmed in Kazakhstan and directed by EDEN’s frequent collaborators Zhang + Knight, was also released today. The visual features EDEN hitching a ride through a muted purple and gold-hued countryside. Watch it HERE.
“Isohel’s are lines on a weather map that connect all the areas that receive equal sunlight,” EDEN explains. “Light and sunlight have been an odd obsession for me since I was a teenager; I’ve always felt like I was moving toward some unreachable horizon. The song ‘isohel’ is about wishing the best for the people you’ve left behind but knowing that you’re probably better off where you are now.”
”isohel” follows the previously released album tracks, “untitled,” “projector” and “‘love, death, distraction’ which V Magazine deems, “a hauntingly beautiful slow jam that doubles as a reflection of our relationship with our phones, brought to life by the strums of a guitar and Ng’s euphonious ennui…As with everything he creates, EDEN’s thoughtful and methodical approach can be both seen and felt. His knack for succeeding at it is what all great artists should aspire to.”
On his new album, EDEN (Dublin-bred artist Jonathon Ng) takes an outward-looking perspective with the looming threat of the climate crisis informing much of his songwriting. But while its songs often return to themes of finality and loss, no future unfolds with an unlikely splendor that ultimately makes for a transcendent listening experience. As with all his music, no future was recorded and self-produced in EDEN’s home studio in Dublin.

Click HERE to listen! The song is off Lauv’s 21-track debut album, ~how i’m feeling~, set for release on March 6, 2020.
Lauv said on the track, “I wrote ‘Changes’ about being at a point in my life where it just wasn’t working for me anymore. I wasn’t happy with myself, with the way I was living, and I felt like I needed to grow and evolve. It’s one of my most personal songs, and a massive favorite from the album.”
This fall, Lauv released the collaboration with LANY, “Mean It” (HERE) and announced the March release date for his debut album ~how i’m feeling~.
The video for “Sims” directed by Phillip Lopez (Kygo, Selena Gomez, Liam Payne) serves as the proper visual introduction of the “Little Lauv” characters that adorn his debut album artwork for ~how i’m feeling~and make up Lauv’s “one man boyband.” Click HERE to view!
In October, Lauv was also featured on the remix of BTS’ “Make It Right (feat. Lauv)” which can be heard HERE! Lauv’s latest radio single “fuck, i’m lonely” with Anne-Marie track has over 250 million streams to date and peaked at #30 at Top 40 US radio. The pair performed the song on Late Night With Seth Meyers (HERE).
In addition, the track was also included on the current 3rdseason of the popular Netflix show 13 Reasons Why, as well as this seasons soundtrack.
Chicago-bred production duo Louis The Child have shared a brilliantly left-field new single called “Here Comes a Feeling,” with Naomi Wild and London-based musician Couros. Released via Interscope Records and available through all digital retailers, “Here Comes a Feeling” marks the start of an artistically adventurous new era for L.A.-based musicians/producers Robby Hauldren and Freddy Kennett.
Listen to “Here Comes a Feeling” by Louis The Child with Naomi Wild & Couros HERE.
Featuring a mesmerizing vocal performance from Naomi Wild —an L.A.-based singer/songwriter known for her work with Odesza (“Higher Ground”) and Machine Gun Kelley (“Glass House”) — “Here Comes a Feeling” finds Louis The Child redefining the boundaries of dance music and evolving into entirely new sonic terrain. With its expansive palette and experimental sound design, the track hints at the major cultural shifts in store for the duo in 2020.
Says Louis The Child, “We started this beat with Couros on a day off in London. We had never met before but ended up staying at the studio until 6am working on this and a few other beats. When we left the studio we were super happy with what we made, it felt experimental and like controlled chaos. When we got back to LA we hopped in the studio with Naomi Wild and Blaise Railey. We played them that beat and they immediately wanted to write something to it. It’s one of our favorite productions we’ve ever made, and one of our favorite songs we’ve made too. We hope you feel the same”
Last weekend, Louis The Child wrapped up their widely acclaimed Here For Now North American headlining tour. In a departure from past performances, the tour featured live production from Hauldren and Kennett, adding a whole new vitality to their set. Among the tour’s sold-out dates were three consecutive nights at New York City’s Terminal 5 and their third annual Friendsgiving show in Chicago. With more dates lined up for 2020, Louis The Child will continue to elevate their live set with the addition of their exciting new material.

Long Island-bred singer/songwriter/producer Drama Relax shares an addictively catchy single called “On the Side.” Released via Rule #1/Interscope Records, and produced by Oren Yoel (Miley Cyrus, XXXTenacion & more), the smooth and soulful track delivers Drama Relax’s signature brand of deeply confessional R&B.
Directed by Kenny Okagaki, the video for “On the Side” features a beautifully dreamy color palette and adds a new layer of emotion to Drama Relax’s lyrics — a candid expression of romantic frustration and doubt. With its moody beats and delicate textures, the song again reveals Drama Relax’s supreme skill in matching his perfectly crafted melodies with heart-on-sleeve honesty.
“My goal with my music is to help people understand the situations they’re going through,” says Drama Relax. “I want them to know that even if you have a bad breakup, it’s gonna be okay, because so many other people are dealing with the same thing. If you can have that awareness and that perspective, it makes everything so much better in the long run.”
“On the Side” marks Drama Relax’s first new music since his debut EP Lonely, a three-track project released in October. His recent triumphs also include landing a song on the hugely popular 13 Reasons Why (Season 3)soundtrack: “All That” featuring Chicago singer/songwriter Jeremih, an undeniably infectious track that’s now surpassed 3.2 million streams on Spotify.
About Drama Relax:
Growing up on Long Island, Drama Relax started making music in eighth grade, largely inspired by Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III. After spending his high school years building his beat-making skills and self-releasing a series of mixtapes, he pushed forward with his music by producing and selling beats online. Once he’d amassed a sizable following on YouTube, Drama Relax began sharing his own music and steadily grew a fanbase on SoundCloud. His songs soon drew the attention of Interscope Geffen A&M Executive Vice President Joie Manda, which led to his signing to Interscope in fall 2018.

Teyana Taylor – multi-hyphenate R&B superstar singer, songwriter, producer, director, dancer/choreographer, actor, fitness guru, model, mother and Harlem native – announces the release of “Morning” featuring Kehlani, the brand new single and steamy video, both available today via G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam Recordings. “Morning” is the second advance track from THE ALBUM, following up the R&B smash “How You Want It? (HYWI?)” featuring King Combs.
THE ALBUM is the long-awaited follow-up to Teyana’s KTSE, one of the five G.O.O.D. Music/ Def Jam albums produced by Kanye West during his 2018 sojourn in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Released in June, KTSE (acronym for Keep That Same Energy) set off an 18-month chain reaction for Teyana, starting with its summertime RIAA- certified Gold smash “Gonna Love Me.”Teyana performed “Gonna Love Me” (in a medley with “Rose In Harlem,” also from KTSE) on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Hip-hop audiences embraced the “Gonna Love Me” remix featuring Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah, Method Man and Raekwon, whose video was directed by Teyana herself.
KTSE spun off a hot new single and video for Teyana in early 2019, the explicit “WTP (Work This P***y).” The video was nominated last week for “Best Dance Performance” at the upcoming BET Soul Train Awards, airing live from Las Vegas on November 17. The third single from KTSE was the evocative “Issues/Hold On.” After slaying the audience with the song live on Ellen in April 2019, Teyana was surprised on-air when Ellen presented her with the RIAA gold award plaque for “Gonna Love Me,” bringing it all full circle.
As she continues to direct her own videos, Teyana – aka‘Spike Tee’ – was again at the helm of the clip for her recent single, “How You Want It? (HYWI?)” featuring King Combs, released in August.
About TEYANA TAYLOR: Being a jack of trades has allowed Teyana Taylor to become a master of all. From her smoky melodic vocals to her dynamic dance moves, the entertainer dips in dives between her talents that also include producing, songwriting, acting, directing and everything in between. When it comes to describing herself, the Harlem native can only think of one word: Everything.
“I literally can do everything. I never look at anything as being impossible,” she explains. “I exhaust all options to make what happen when I need to make happen.” Her mantra made her an early favorite to artists like Pharrell, who she signed her first deal with, and later choreographed videos for artists like Beyonce and Jay-Z. Her love for the arts and R&B later earned her the title of the first woman signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music imprint.
Between R&B’s identity crisis in the 2010s, Teyana dropped her debut album VII, with tracks like “Maybe” (featuring Yo Gotti and Pusha T) and the sultry “Just Different” shaping her musical persona. The critically acclaimed album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart in 2014, cementing her position in today modern R&B field. “I fought for that raw, hood necessary R&B and now I feel like it’s better than ever,” she says.
After spicing up the R&B charts, Teyana was blessed with the arrival of her daughter Junie with husband and NBA star Iman Shumpert in 2015. “I do all of this for my baby. She’s who I do it for,” she says about Iman “Junie” Tayla Shumpert Jr., her main source of inspiration. “I always show her how to be a leader and a businesswoman. I want her to believe that she can be anything she wants to be and it not be a shocker that she’s a female doing it all.” Soon after, Teyana went on to star in the internet-breaking video for Kanye West’s “Fade,” and scored her first MTV Moonman for “Best Choreography” at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards.
But it wasn’t until the release of her sophomore project K.T.S.E. in June 2018 that the world experienced Teyana’s talents. With her all-female production company The Aunties, Teyana self-directed videos for “WTP,” the Gold-selling single “Gonna Love Me,” and recently, “Issues/Hold On.” She has also directed videos for her peers like T.I. (“You”), Monica (“Commitment”) and Lil Duval (“Pull Up” featuring Ty Dolla $ign) with fans like Ms. Lauryn Hill and Elton John praising her boss moves.
Part of what makes Teyana stand out from the rest is her ability to move with precision and poise in everything she does. From the studio to the stage, every idea is a project with the singer front and center with a vision all her own. With her musical inspirations like Aaliyah, Teena Marie, Mint Condition and Janet Jackson speaking to her soul, Teyana is aware her mission is larger than life. “I’m working on me every day and I think that’s my purpose,” she says, comparing her life to a never-ending book. “I’m still going, still mastering and being a better me.”
