Rileyy Lanez – “Left 4 Me”

RISING R&B SINGER/SONGWRITER RILEYY LANEZ DEBUTS NEW SONG “LEFT 4 ME”

Watch the Official Video HERE

Today, budding R&B songstress Rileyy Lanez has released a new song “Left 4 Me” – listen HERE. Written by Rileyy and producers Click N Press (Dreamville, Queen Naija), “Left 4 Me” chronicles how one can feel alone and fed up with imbalances in a relationship. The track comes alongside an official video with Rileyy’s hometown of NYC as the backdrop. Watch HERE.

In speaking about the track, Rileyy says: “‘Left 4 Me’ is about a time I was so busy dwelling on the person I was with and making their mind up instead of focusing on me. Writing the song was a lesson in disguise instead of dwelling on something I can’t have, it taught me to focus on all the things I do have and that’s myself, my career, happiness, freedom etc. The video shows that shift, I’m literally in the street dancing with my girls, releasing the hurt, being free, and moving on.”

Born and raised in the Bronx, 19-year-old Rileyy Lanez pulls no punches with her heart-on-her sleeve R&B music. In May of 2019, she released her original song “I’m Leaving,” which has over 16M streams and 7M+ video views. Rileyy is also featured on Lil Tjay’s album track “Post To Be,” and just last week she launched her vlog series “LANEZ LIFE” – watch the first episode HERE.

Oliver Malcom – “Helen”

RISING ARTIST OLIVER MALCOLM RELEASES NEW TRACK “HELEN” — LISTEN NOW

RISING ARTIST OLIVER MALCOLM RELEASES NEW TRACK “HELEN” — LISTEN NOW

Swedish born, London raised artist Oliver Malcolm has followed up with a brand new single, “Helen” (out on Darkroom/Interscope Records). The track (LISTEN HERE) is a poignant tale of salvation with staccato beats, blurry blues melodies interlaced with outré samples forming a sonic collage that’s fast becoming a signature of the young artist. Written and produced by Oliver himself, “Helen” follows the release of his debut single “Switched Up” which was critically praised by the likes of New York Times, FADER and SPIN who all went on to call it a masterful debut. Speaking on his sound and inspiration, Oliver has this to share:

“Last year I moved back to England. The song feels gritty and raw because that’s how I felt being back home in that environment. This guy owned a small complex behind an automobile warehouse and agreed to let me make as much noise as I want if I paid him 500 quid. I’d ride my bike back & forth every day with all my equipment in my backpack. This is the first song I made there.” — Oliver Malcolm

ICYMI, WATCH “SWITCHED UP” HERE

Praise for Oliver Malcolm & “Switched Up”:

“A sleek hybrid of rap and R&B” — FADER

“The drums lurch toward the offbeats, some looped guitar picking tugs against that pulse and Malcolm’s voice is a rattled, quavery moan…Everything stays off-kilter for the two and a half paranoid minutes of “Switched Off” by Oliver Malcolm” — New York Times, Playlist

“Oliver Malcolm’s ‘Switched Up’ Is Intoxicating… new single ‘Switched Up’ is a mesh of influences, a confluence of sounds, a mosaic of techniques.” — CLASH

About Oliver Malcolm
Oliver Malcolm got his start early, teaching himself how to spin records at 12 years old. Shortly after, he downloaded Logic and taught himself how to produce – working with IDK, Aluna George, Joey Bada$$, Jay Rock, Masego Tinashe and more. Now twenty, Oliver has developed his own voice. Touching everything from the production, vocals, songwriting, engineering, mixing and mastering, Oliver’s sound is unique and does not fit the mold of one genre. A multidisciplinary at heart, this is just the beginning of music lovers can look forward to from the new artist.

H.E.R. – Live Performance

Vevo announces the release of H.E.R.’s live performance of “Slide.” Presented anonymously, contemporary R&B artist H.E.R. (Having Everything Revealed) surfaced in 2016 with H.E.R., Vol. 1, an EP of downcast post-breakup material that sounded both vulnerable and assured, much like what followed from the singer and songwriter. The seven-track EP appeared on major-label RCA in September 2016 with limited promotion, but labelmates Alicia Keys and Bryson Tiller spread the word through social media, and a cover of Drake’s “Jungle” helped send the set to number 28 on Billboard’s R&B/hip-hop chart. A similarly styled follow-up, H.E.R., Vol. 2, arrived in June 2017 and debuted at number 22. The EPs were soon combined and expanded, released as H.E.R., with six additional cuts — including “Best Part,” a number 32 R&B/hip-hop hit previously heard on Daniel Caesar’s Freudian — referred to as B-sides.

In 2018, H.E.R. and Khalid teamed up for the Superfly soundtrack cut “This Way,” and that August a third EP was released, I Used to Know Her: The Prelude, which went straight to the top of the R&B/hip-hop chart thanks to “Could’ve Been,” a duet with Bryson Tiller. By the end of the year, she was nominated for five Grammy awards: Album of the Year and Best R&B Album (for H.E.R.), Best R&B Performance (for “Best Part”), Best R&B Song (for “Focus”), and Best New Artist. At the 2019 ceremony, she took home the prizes for Best R&B Album and Performance. Later that year, she linked up with a diverse range of collaborators such as Chris Brown (“Come Together”), Jess Glynne (“Thursday”), Ed Sheeran (“I Don’t Want Your Money”), and YBN Cordae (“Racks”) while also issuing the single “21.” 

“Slide” is now streaming on all platforms. Keep up with exclusive content from artists all over the world HERE.

TEYANA TAYLOR – “WE GOT LOVE”

TEYANA TAYLOR DROPS HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED NEW SINGLE “WE GOT LOVE,” AVAILABLE TODAY VIA G.O.O.D. MUSIC/DEF JAM RECORDINGS

LATEST ADVANCE CUT FROM EAGERLY AWAITED NEW PROJECT, THE ALBUM, SLATED FOR EARLY 2020

TEYANA PERFORMS TONIGHT AT ART BASEL MIAMI

LISTEN TO “WE GOT LOVE

Teyana Taylor – multi-hyphenate R&B superstar singer, songwriter, producer, director, dancer/choreographer, actor, fitness guru, model, mother, Harlem native – announces the release of “We Got Love,” her brand new single available today via G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam Recordings. In celebration of the new single release, Teyana will be headlining her own Art Basel Miami concert series in partnership with Def Jam and Courvoisier.

Produced by Kanye West for Teyana, the track was originally slated for Teyana’s K.T.S.E. album, but was held back because of clearance issues. “I’ve always felt this was such a special record and wanted it to have the right moment,” said Teyana.”We Got Love,” is the newest advance track from the upcoming project THE ALBUM, slated to drop early 2020 and comes on the heels of Teyana’s consecutive R&B smashes “How You Want It? (HYWI?)” featuring King Combs which entered into the Top 20 on R&B charts in August and “Morning” featuring Kehlani – her biggest video release to date, amassing over 11 million views in less than a month and entering into the Top 10 on R&B Charts in November. Each video was self-directed by Teyana – aka ‘Spike Tee.’

THE ALBUM, Teyana’s official third studio album, is the long-awaited follow-up to K.T.S.E., 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 2018, K.T.S.E. (acronym for Keep That Same Energy) set off an 18-month chain reaction for Teyana, starting with its summertime Top 10 R&B smash “Gonna Love Me.”  Teyana performed “Gonna Love Me” (in a medley with “Rose In Harlem,” another K.T.S.E. track) on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Hip-hop audiences embraced the “Gonna Love Me” remix featuring Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface KillahMethod Man and Raekwon, whose video was also directed by Teyana.

K.T.S.E. spun off a hot new single and video for Teyana in early 2019, the explicit “WTP (Work This P***y).”  The video was nominated for “Best Dance Performance” at the recent 32nd annual BET Soul Train Awards. The third single from K.T.S.E. 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.
