About Kane Brown

Named as one of Time’s 100 most influential people in the world, Brown has ascended from social media notability to become one of country music’s most accomplished mainstays with eight chart-topping singles to his name. Noted as “the future of country music” (Billboard), Brown first broke onto the scene with the arrival of his self-titled, 2X Platinum debut album (2016), where he became the first artist ever to lead all five of Billboard ’s main country charts simultaneously. His debut effort, Kane Brown, topped the Billboard Top Country Albums chart for 13 weeks and garnered 7X Platinum-certified hits “Heaven” and “What Ifs”-the fourth and seventh most-streamed country songs of all time (U.S. Nielsen Country On-Demand Streams chart). With the release of his follow-up album Experiment (2018), Brown became the only male country artist in more than 24 years to have his sophomore album debut at the top of the Billboard 200.

Following Experiment, Brown released his multi-song project Mixtape Vol. 1 – which earned Brown an ACM Award nomination for Album of the Year (2021) and an ACM win for “Video of the Year.” A CMA, ACM, Billboard, AMA and People’s Choice Award nominee, Brown has collaborated with numerous artists including Grammy and Academy Award winning singer-songwriter H.E.R. (“Blessed & Free,”) DJ Marshmello (2X Platinum “One Thing Right”), Khalid and Swae Lee (3X Platinum “Be Like That”), “blackbear (Platinum “Memory”), John Legend (“Last Time I Say Sorry”), Camila Cabello (“Never Be The Same” remix), Brooks & Dunn (“Believe”) and Becky G. (“Lost In The Middle Of Nowhere” remix), Lauren Alaina (7X Platinum “What If’s” and Chris Young (2X Platinum “Famous Friends”), which became Billboard’s 2021 year-end No. 1 Country Airplay Song and earned a CMT Award for “Collaborative Video of the Year.”

Minaj Makes History

Diamond-selling hip-hop icon Nicki Minaj makes history this week with her blockbuster new single Super Freaky Girl. It bows at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 as she earns “the first solo female rap track to debut at #1 since 1998. It achieves a myriad of milestones. Nicki stands out as “the first female lead artist to debut at #1 in 2022,” “the first female rapper with multiple #1 debuts, and the “first female rapper to reach #1 without a video in over two years. It also conquers TikTok at #1 on Top US Tracks.

Scoring the “Biggest Consumption Debut for a Lead Female Artist in 2022” and “Biggest Sales Week for Any Single of 2022,” this also marks her fourth Digital #1 of 2022—the most of any artist this year—and 12th Digital #1 overall, enshrining her as the fifth artist to do so. She eclipses her own record for “Biggest Digital Sales Week of Any Track in 2022, dethroning her own “Do We Have a Problem?” [feat. Lil Baby]. With 21 now, it also reaffirms her record as the “female artist with the most Top 10 entries on the Hot 100 of all time.

Tana – Hell Yeah

Gearing up for another massive moment, 15-year-old phenomenon tana (f/k/a BabySantana) serves up a new single and music video entitled “hell yeah” today via Galactic Records/Republic Records. Listen to “hell yeah”HERE. Watch the music video for “hell yeah”HERE.

The track’s otherworldly and off-kilter production offsets his dynamic melodic flow. He cuts through the beat with ethereal melodies and an engaging and entrancing hook. The accompanying visual seamlessly captures this sonic ebb and flow.

It arrives in the wake of “swagging like this” with Lancey Foux and “nyc.” The latter reeled in over 1.3 million Spotify streams in addition to receiving critical acclaim. Right out of the gate, office raved, “[tana], who is known for his brief but genius tracks and adds ‘NYC’ to the list of songs you wish were longer” and hailed the track as “filled with a frenzy of hard-hitting lyrics from his prodigal mind.

Recently, he concluded a full-scale North American tour with multiplatinum chart-topping rap phenoemnon Lil Tecca. Next up, he will appear at Rolling Loud Toronto September 9-11 and Rolling Loud New York September 23-25 before supporting Tecca on tour across Europe.

Earlier this year, tana’s “off the leash!” feat. yvngxchris & Luisss racked up north of 26.2 million Spotify streams. Daily Chiefers applauded it as a “fucking banger” and urged, “each drop is seemingly better than the previous one.” DJ Booth touted it among the “Best Songs of the Week” and wrote, Santana declares himself ‘off the leash, which has the young Georgia rapper gnashing through crunchy production and features from yvngxchris and Luisss.

With catchy chameleonic flows, a predilection for otherworldly melodies, and skill that far belies his age, 15-year-old rapper and creator tana roots his vision in versatility. The Columbus, GA native presents an ambitious perspective on hip-hop, separating himself from the pack by disregarding convention and pushing past every boundary. As a kid, tana instantly gravitated towards music, listening to everyone from Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz to Soulja Boy and Pitbull. By 12-years-old, he taught himself how to record, working out of a tiny bedroom closet in complete D.I.Y. fashion. Under initial the name BabySantana, he slowly, but surely gained traction on Soundcloud with a series of uploads. Lil Tecca jumped on his “Prada (Remix), and Pitchfork showed love to the collaboration in 2020. He parlayed this momentum into an explosion with “Antisocial” [feat. Slump6s], gathering 76.1 million Spotify streams and 5.6 million YouTube views. Its sequel “Antisocial 2” [feat. Slump6sYung FazoXhuloooSSGKOBE] posted up 23 million Spotify streams as “14” [with KA$HDAMI] reeled in another 24 million Spotify streams. Concurrently, XXL summed up his rise, “more and more artists are grasping hip-hop earlier than ever, and creating it in their own way. BabySantana surely fits the bill.” After amassing hundreds of millions of streams and earning acclaim, he emerges as an inimitable force on his 2022 debut project, and more to come.

BROOKE MORIBER – SAVIOR

On July 22, 2022, Reviver Records recording artist Brooke Moriber today released her powerful new song “Savior.” Listen to the poignant track here.

“I can’t help but help you, but it doesn’t make you stronger.

You’ll fall holding onto me when you call thinking I can be your savior.

“I couldn’t be happier to release a song that is so near and dear to my heart,” said Moriber. “I hope that ‘Savior‘ inspires people to take care of themselves first and foremost and to leave unhealthy situations when their wellbeing is in jeopardy.”

Savior” is an intensely personal track that Moriber penned with Bill DiLuigi and Josh Ronen about learning how to love someone without losing too much of yourself. Produced by Todd Lombardo and Craig Alvin (Kacey Musgraves), “Savior” showcases Moriber‘s strong voice and ever-relevant lyricism.

Entertainment Focus said of “Savior,” “One listen to the track puts me firmly in mind of artists like Carly Pearce and Kelsea Ballerini. Uplifting vocals and soaring arrangements combine to produce an evocative, powerful ballad.”

Moriber‘s previous singles, “Down to Nothing” and “This Town Made Us,” both of which she co-wrote, introduced the former Broadway star to the country music scene. Since then, she has been crisscrossing the country on radio tours and introducing herself to stations as programmers and fans alike fall in love with her thoughtful songwriting and incredible vocals. A recent television performance on “Today in Nashville,” high-profile appearances at “Live in the Vineyard,” an opening stint for Dylan Scott, and performing the National Anthem at the SF Giants game have solidified Brooke as a star on the rise.

When she is not on the road, Moriber has been hard at work in Nashville with some of the industry’s top writers and producers as she continues to record for her upcoming full-length project. Inspired by the likes of Jennifer Nettles, Ingrid Andress, Brandi Carlile and her idol Linda Ronstadt among many others, Brooke is poised to take her place among the biggest voices in country music.

Max Drazen releases Caffeine inside 360 Magazine

Max Drazen – Caffeine

Following the acclaimed release of his first single, “Let Me Down Slow,” Max Drazen returns with “Caffeine” – a song fans have been waiting for since last July when he posted a clip on TikTok that amassed a million views in the first 24 hours. The neo-soul-tinged, tongue-in-cheek track tells the story of the up-and-down relationship of a couple with vastly different approaches to life. It’s one of the first songs Drazen wrote and recorded with producer Dave Villa (FLETCHER, Daughtry). Max wrote all the lyrics. Listen HERE. Drazen recently signed with Capitol Records, which released “Caffeine” in conjunction with Field Trip Recordings. He has inked with Fourward for management.

“I love happy songs with sad lyrics. Songs that make you want to dance but also have a deeper meaning,” says Max Drazen. “Caffeine’s sonics match the energy of the honeymoon phase in a relationship, while the lyrics describe feeling hopeless but indifferent.” 

Putting “Let Me Down Slow” on its list of “10 Cool New Pop Songs to Get You Through The Week,” Billboard praised it as a “relaxed rhythmic-pop track that amps up as the singer-songwriter becomes more desperate for emotional closure… Drazen showcases different tricks up his sleeve in the process – rap-singing on the verses, vulnerable warbling on the bridge, and a nice melodic feel on the main hook.” Early Rising said, “’Let Me Down Slow’ is a classic break up song that displays both Max’s vocal range and writing ability in the most cohesive way.” Watch the L.A.-based songwriter’s live performance video for “Let Me Down Slow” HERE.

Born and raised in Connecticut, Drazen’s first influences came from his parents’ record collection – Elton John and Billy Joel. As he got older, he fell in love with artists like Smino, Justin Timberlake, Jon Bellion and Two Door Cinema Club. The pieces would connect during his junior year of high school, when Drazen went over to a friend’s house and wrote his first song. Although recruited to play soccer at Middlebury College, he found his focus shifting to songwriting. He developed a sinewy, genre-agnostic voice and centered his authentic perspective as a kid from the ‘burbs, adeptly swinging between R&B, pop and rap. Now signed to Field Trip Recordings, Drazen has his eyes set on the future, with more genre-traversing songs on the way.

Reneé Rapp knew was born to perform ever since she was a child via 360 MAGAZINE

Reneé Rapp – In the Kitchen

Reneé Rapp returns with her new single “In the Kitchen.” The 22-year-old delivers a poignant piano ballad that highlights her knack for penning devastating lyrics and shows off her towering vocal range. Currently winning over viewers and critics alike with her starring role as “Leighton” in the HBO Max series The Sex Lives of College Girls, this track proves that Rapp has equally developed gifts as a musician.

Listen to “In The Kitchen” (Interscope Records) by Reneé Rapp HERE

On “In the Kitchen,” Rapp hones in on a simple memory from a relationship — to convey how alone she feels. “I walk in the kitchen, my heart hits the floor,” she sings sweetly over gentle chords. “It’s you that I’m missing, just had a vision of us cooking dinner, and you’re holding me from behind.” Co-written by Reneé alongside Monsters & Strangerz (Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber, Maroon 5), Tommy Brown (Ariana Grande, The Weeknd, Blackpink), and Michael Pollack (Lizzo, Becky G, Justin Bieber), the song draws on personal moments of Reneé’s creating an emotional and raw experience for her listeners almost enduring the pain alongside her as she sings.

“In the Kitchen” is the follow up to Rapp’s major-label debut “Tattoos,” which has already amassed 3 million combined streams and growing. Throughout her career, Rapp has displayed an indelible skill for enthralling audiences with vibrant performances and genuine energy. Outside of music, she stars in the HBO Max series from Mindy Kaling entitled The Sex Lives of College Girls. It’s a role that calls for innate comedic timing and breathtaking dramatic prowess, both of which Rapp has in spades. That emotional rawness also informs “In the Kitchen,” a song that soars and devastates. With a full-length project due soon – Rapp is just getting started.  

ABOUT RENEÉ RAPP:

Reneé Rapp knew was born to perform ever since she was a child. Even in her earliest memories, her love of music was always present. “I couldn’t sit still in the car unless there was music,” she says. “Otherwise, I would cry the entire time.” The North Carolina native began harnessing her natural creativity by writing and recording songs when she was just a teenager. Eventually, her career took off when she landed the coveted role of Regina George in the Tony-nominated Mean Girls musical on Broadway. Shortly after, she found widespread recognition and praise—from the likes of W, Harper’s Bazaar, and The Hollywood Report for her performance as “Leighton” on the HBO Max series “The Sex Lives of College Girls” written by Mindy Kaling. Now, more empowered than ever, Rapp turns her attention back to music, where sharing threadbare insecurities on “Tattoos” is just the beginning. “I was called ‘crazy’ a lot growing up because I didn’t know what was going on with me,” she says. “As I got older and started going to therapy, I reclaimed the word in a way that feels good to me.” In this song and in the rest of her music to come Rapp leans into a uniquely bold showcase of vulnerability to connect with her ever-growing fandom. Eager to continue to share her emotions with the world, Reneé has much more music on the way under her recent signing to Interscope Records.

PARAVI – GOLDEN CHILD

Singer/songwriter Paravi is excited to officially release her first original song “Golden Child” via RCA Records. The sonically lush pop production explores the raw emotions of unlearning perfectionism. Propelled by Paravi’s melodic vocals, “Golden Child” serves as a reminder that it’s okay to not be perfect, to make mistakes, and to do what makes you happy. Listen HERE.

Speaking on “Golden Child” Paravi says, “This is a song I wrote to give myself permission to fuck up. As a child of immigrants and a young Indian girl entering the music industry, I’m no stranger to the self-placed pressure of perfectionism and the strain of living up to the “model minority” idea, a concept my parents never forced upon me, but something I picked up from my American-ized Indian experience. It wasn’t until I went to college that I took a leap of faith into imperfection by allowing myself to make mistakes. Unlearning the weight of this pressure I had put on myself for so long is exactly what “Golden Child” is at its core. Instead of worrying about what others think, I realized that being authentic and encouraging myself to live life a little further off the edge is what makes me happy.”

Deemed a “…musical force to be reckoned with” by NYLON, Paravi continues to carefully craft a style of her own, alternating between moments of vivid vulnerability and vocal vitality above organically warm production. As a newly signed artist with RCA Records, Paravi is looking forward to sharing more original music this summer/fall. 

Additionally, Paravi was recently featured on the official motion picture soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann’s blockbuster film ELVIS for her rendition of the iconic “Suspicious Minds”. Check it out HERE

Night Tales debut album via 360 MAGAZINE

Night Tales – Lovesong

Night Tales Released Official Cover of The Cure’s, “Lovesong,” Ahead of Debut Album on June 24.

After relocating to Los Angeles, the Australian act is ready to bring their internationally acclaimed catalog to iconic venues and festivals throughout the Summer.

Listen HERE.

To sum it up, Night Tales are doing things differently. The enigmatic Aussie duo stormed onto the scene in 2018 behind viral single releases that conveyed their alluring blend of electronica packed with singer-songwriter sensibilities. Pushing an identity of swag & soul in indie dance music, Night Tales is bridging the gap between urban & electronica.

Night Tales is leading a wave of progressive electronic acts that implement real vocals, storytelling and live instruments within a DJ environment. Their acclaim has yet to reach such heights as it did when Night Tales was released an official cover of The Cure’s classic, “Lovesong.”

Quote from Night Tales:

“Throughout the pandemic and especially in Australia, we lived under extreme lockdown measures. Literally confined to our homes with only one hour of exercise a day and allowance to get essential goods. This meant no studio time or the ability to work together in the same space. So I (Aaron) continued to produce ideas and in turn send them to Kamaliza for him to create lyrical & vocal ideas. He sent back this amazing idea and melody, which was an adaptation of iconic British band The Cure and their track, “Lovesong.” Immediately we knew it was special.”

The duo has chosen to invigorate this growing genre space with a vein of synthwave music that blends 80’s nostalgia with modern electronica. In April, the producers released their first 2022 single, “Thinking About You,” which previewed their forthcoming album set for release following a Summer of exploring their new home in America. Last month, single no.2, “Take It Slow,” follows up on the vocal and melody-led dance music that packs the crossover appeal befitting Night Tales’ enormous potential and acclaim thus far. 

Spirited production and intrapersonal lyricism mark the first glimpse into the 2022 release calendar for Night Tales. The producers offer high paced production, synths and echoed vocals to present a soundscape that is both emotional and energetic. While Night Tales offer the storytelling and lyrics for widespread accessibility, their roots in electronica provide credence to their ability to connect with both mainstream and festival audiences.

The Night Tales project has been nearly a decade in the making. One half of the duo, Aaron Bannie was born in the U.K. before moving to Ibiza, where he learned how to mix and play on vinyl. He would later relocate to Australia in hopes to elevate his own electronic project, Third Floor. Kamaliza Salamba is an Aussie native, and also had his own career in music prior to Night Tales. He played in various bands, in addition to his own R&B electronic project, Kamaliza.

The two connected via a booking agent, and almost immediately began collaborating on a house-infused, singer-songwriter project. With a production partner in Bannie, Salamba was able to focus more on his skills as a vocalist. Influenced by acts like the Talking Heads, the two dove into more thematic compositions that cover a wide range of music. Salamba writes the vocals and melodies, while Bannie provides his own vocals in addition to running drum and trigger pads.

This arrangement gives them the chance to take all original songs and break them down in a totally different experience and energy. In 2018, the duo struck a 3-single deal with the German label, Majestic Casual. The label has provided a home for innovative acts like Edamame and Two Feet, so it made for a perfect fit for an enigmatic act like Night Tales.

Following the deal, the two went to the studio and quickly wrote a series of singles, including ”Friends.” This first series put onto the display the representation of human emotion and personal relationships. “Friends” would go on to rack up 5.7 million Spotify streams globally. To the delight of the duo, they discovered they already had a listening audience overseas in America and Europe. This lifelong benchmark for success and key to traveling to America came right as the pandemic swiftly took over the globe.

Stuck inside their home studio during the pandemic, the two reacted by doubling down on their creativity by committing to monthly single releases. Fans rewarded their output, as Night Tales’ monthly listeners rose to 300+ monthly and their music placed in several key Spotify Editorial playlists.

Night Tales’ mission is to pioneer urban culture in the alternative electronic music scene. Their hope is to diversify and represent people of color in electronic music – championing acceptance and accessibility.

The producers are lined up for a big Summer in 2022, with upcoming performances at Electric Forest and Breakaway Festival, in addition to their own tour dates in cities like SF, LA, CHI, Denver, Toronto, Detroit, MIA, and NYC. Their forthcoming album is set for release in October. 

More from Night Tales:

“The Cure’s original version of ‘Lovesong’ was created and performed within a band structure, so all live instrumentation. Our version sits in our world which is completely electronic. How we made our own version besides the electronic creation was to accompany The Cure’s “Lovesong” lyrics with our own additional & completely original vocals which are; “follow your light, follow it deep inside, open your eyes, rise up to the morning light. 

“We are so extremely humbled & excited that Robert Smith and the cure estate gave us their seal of approval of reimagining their timeless classic.”

Canadian musician and Juno award-winning artist covers Elle via 360 MAGAZINE

ELLE – CHARLOTTE CARDIN

KO Média is excited to unveil the Summer issue of ELLE Canada featuring Canadian musician Charlotte Cardin. Fresh off the heels of four major wins at the 2022 Juno Awards, including Album of the Year for her debut, Phoenix, the rising pop star opens up about her identity as an artist and how much music has set her free. “Music is the most wholesome way I’ve found of letting go, of drowning out the noise and staying grounded in truth,” she shares in an intimate interview with her big sister and biggest fan. “Whenever I start overthinking what I should wear or how I should be, I go back to my music and focus on the stories I want to tell.” For Cardin, the creative experience of writing her debut album was empowering, allowing her to “access the truest and most vulnerable parts of myself.” Now, with her second album set to be released in 2023, she’s moving to London for the next stage of her career. “It feels right to go where the music speaks to me the most.”

Dive into this summer issue with a roundup of brands offering fun, fashionable swimwear and a look at the new crop of body-care products that are rethinking our face-first approach to skincare. For readers in need of a getaway, discover all that Tunisia has to offer (spoiler: everything from warm hospitality to a cosmopolitan capital), or escape to Merrill House, an ancestral home turned luxurious boutique hotel tucked away in a quiet corner of Picton, Ont.

In fashion, our editors look at the timeless trend of wearing all black — even in summertime — and delve into the history of the white T-shirt, which has deep roots in popular culture. Toronto artist Esmaa Mohamoud, whose exhibits combine sports, fashion and racial issues, reveals the inspiration behind a series of basketball jerseys she transformed into majestic Victorian-style dresses. Plus, we introduce three Canadian curators of vintage jewellery who are giving one-of-a-kind pieces a second life.

Inspirational women abound in this issue. Canadian author Sonya Singh explains what writing her first book taught her about dating and herself; director and producer Lucia Aniello talks about her award-winning show Hacks and championing stories that haven’t been told; multi-hyphenate Jessie Andrews speaks candidly about carving her own path and her recent role in Euphoria; and actor and L’Oréal Paris spokesmodel Andie MacDowell shares her thoughts on going grey and inspiring the next generation. We also chat with Violette Serrat, the new creative director of makeup at Guerlain, about using makeup to celebrate and learn to love ourselves.

This edition is filled with fascinating deep-dives on a wide range of topics. Acclaimed Bangladeshi artist and author Fariha Róisín talks about her latest book exploring how the West’s wellness trends have commodified global healing traditions. Actress and food writer Madhur Jaffrey talks about foodways rooted in tradition and why India’s cuisines are still widely misunderstood. Plus, our writers look at the shift away from binge-watching; the experiences of women affected by alopecia and hair loss; the unrealistic beauty standard of perfectly straight glowing-white teeth; and the ways that Canada’s health-care system forces people who experience chronic illnesses to become their own advocates.

Finally, three tarot readers reveal the secrets of their practice, which include initiating reflection, stimulating introspection and accessing the wants, needs and thoughts that lie dormant within us.

The Summer issue of ELLE Canada will hit stands and Apple News+ on June 20, 2022.

Just. As. Erik new song "Printed in My Sheets" is out now via 360 Magazine

Just. As. Erik – PIMS

Just. As. Erik new song “Printed in My Sheets” is out now. The song is written by Erik together with the artist Janice, one of the Swedish soul scene’s leading figures, and producer John Hårleman who, among other things, has previously collaborated with Anders Bagge and produced songs for the Swedish Melodifestivalen and the American TV series Glee.

– “Printed in My Sheets” is about a magical place where you “sign” your name to enter. There you meet a person with whom you have a magical chemistry and experience. In this place, you forget everything else around you and you do not tell much about yourself to the other person, because you do not want to destroy the unspoiled, Erik says about the new single.

Erik’s sound is a combination of strong melodies, a consistent melancholic nerve, and a fluid gender expression, which is not least to be found in Erik’s bubbling soulful voice, fragile and clear, that is the foundation in all productions.

Erik has previously danced in Eurovision and participated in the Swedish Melodifestivalen, as lead singer in the synth duo The Lovers of Valdaro. He is educated at Balettakademin in Gothenburg and has since performed in musical theatre productions in over 10 years. He’s played the leading role in Priscilla at Göta Lejon in Stockholm and the role of Don Lockwood in Singing in the Rain at Kristianstad Theater. Right now he is on tour in Sweden with a new production of Jesus Christ Superstar.

In 2021, Erik released several songs together with artists such as Luca Debonaire, MVRE, Gatby and Miss Sister on the releases “Rewind” (EP), “Play” (album) and “Pause” (acoustic album). Erik’s songs have been supported by blogs like Alfitude and Music & Fashion Blog and Spotify have included his songs in playlists such as “New Music Friday Norway” and “Ny Pop.”

The new single “Printed in My Sheets” is available on all streaming services.
