KELOW LATESHA – TURBO

On August 4, 2022, Kelow LaTesha has announced the forthcoming release of her eagerly-awaited new EP, TURBO due out in partnership with SoundCloud. Arriving on August 19, TURBO, in short for turbulence, takes listeners on a ride that provides a front-and-center look at Kelow‘s trials, triumphs and transformative experiences that have led her to stand tall as the woman she is today.

In addition to being named part of First on SoundCloud‘s 2022 artist class, earlier this year Kelow LaTesha launched a partnership with SoundCloud to bring her career to the next level. She shared the news with fans today on her social channels. 

Since launching the partnership, Kelow is rapidly on the rise – she’s been featured in Vibe, HipHopDX, Earmilk, and XXL‘s “Best New Hip-Hop Songs,” and recently released tracks have earned placements on coveted playlists across major platforms, including Apple Music‘s “New in Hip-Hop,” Spotify’s “New Joints,” Tidal’s “Rising” and others. 

Taking an all gas no breaks approach on the road to TURBO, Kelow‘s latest singles “He Ain’t Mine” featuring Asian Doll, “Titanic” featuring Goonew, and “Genius” all, in their own right, have quickly become stand-out releases for the DMV-bred artist. Released last month, “He Ain’t Mine” received co-signs as the ‘Best in Hip Hop’ for the week from outlets such as XXL, UPROXX, SOHH and more

Kelow continues her triumphant run as she paves the way to deliver what is set to be one of the most discussed projects of the year. 

Forget about the stigmas, labels, ideologies and pre-determinations of today’s hip-hop artists, because when you meet Kelow LaTesha, none of the industry standards apply. Born and raised in Prince George’s County, Maryland, the imaginative artist has had the desire to create since she was a child, where she often expressed herself through painting and music. Since then, Kelow has ascended to become a dynamic fixture on the rap scene with the uncanny ability to transport her fans both sonically and visually with a thoughtfully crafted aesthetic.  

Kelow garnered acclaim and a range of fans thanks to her definitive album TSA which was released in 2019 followed closely by TSA Deluxe in 2020. Songs like “PowerPuff Girls,” “Hammer Time,” and “The Real Deal,” showed off her ability to transcend genres and consistently innovate. 

Prior to the release of TSA, Kelow delivered singles and visuals as a creative director under the name BUTTA, opening up for acts like Metro Boomin. She also built buzz with the success of her EP Amethyst Stoner and its adrenaline-fuelled tune “Finna” that became a viral hit on SoundCloud. “Finna” was later transformed into a charismatic remix featuring Lil Uzi Vert.

Kelow is in the business of making music that moves you, makes you feel good and connects people. Her upcoming project Turbo is set for release in 2022. This is just the beginning.

Legendaddy Garners 600M Streams

Daddy Yankee‘s critically acclaimed chart-topping magnum opus and final album, LEGENDADDY, has already eclipsed 600 million global streams and counting in less than a month! Speaking to the excitement around the last chapter of his genre-defining career, his farewell tour, “LA ÚLTIMA VUELTA” (The Last Round), has already sold out in advance of its launch this summer. He also recently shared the music video for “X ÚLTIMA VEZ” with Bad Bunny. It has generated 40 million-plus views thus far.

Upon release, LEGENDADDY landed as the #1 Latin Album in the World! It bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top Latin Albums Chart, arriving as his fifth consecutive #1 debut on the respective chart. Additionally, it catapulted into the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 at #8, marking his highest position on the chart to date and the first Top 10 in 15 years since 2007’s El Cartel: The Big Boss. Additionally, it soared to #1 on the Spotify Weekly Top Albums Chart.

LEGENDADDY incited widespread critical applause. Variety proclaimed, “Spanning over three decades of music, the 19-track collection captures the essence of reggaeton, salsa, dancehall, rap, trap, bachata, EDM, and Caribbean influencers,” and The New York Times noted, “The most dynamic moments come when Yankee reaches for the magic of the past—whether indulging in boastful hubris or summoning listeners into dance floor reverie.” Rolling Stone awarded the record “4-out-of-5 stars” and raved, “He’s going out in a blaze of glory.

Right out of the gate, LEGENDADDY took over Spotify worldwide, ascending to #1 on the Global Album Chart, achieving the biggest streaming day of his career on Spotify with a staggering 35.7 million streams—almost double his prior career best. The album reached #1 in 19 markets, including Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Mexico, Spain and more on Apple Music‘s all-genres list. Additionally, five of the album’s music videos have vaulted into the Top 10 on YouTube. He has bested his own personal records with the album—and it has only just begun to catch fire too.

Listen to LEGENDADDY HERE.

However, his goodbye is hardly an occasion for tears. Instead, LEGENDADDY might just be the biggest part of the century as he invites a variety of A-list friends to celebrate over three decades of music on this 19-track opus. To herald the record’s arrival, he accompanied the release with nine exhilarating and high-energy music videos for “AGUA,” “LA OLA,” “ZONA DEL PERREO,” “HOT,” “BOMBÓN,” “EL ABUSADOR DEL ABUSADOR,” “IMPARES,” and for his single: “REMIX.” The single’s head-nodding beat and reggaeton production underscore hard-hitting verses and a rafter-reaching refrain. It pops off as a banger on par with his most applauded output. The accompanying visual proves equally scorching, stylish, and sexy.

Watch all of the videos HERE.

From the epic Michael Buffer-led opener “LEGENDADDY” through the emotional finale “BLOKE,” LEGENDADDY traverses a myriad of styles and sounds made famous by Daddy Yankee throughout his iconic run thus far. Other highlights on the album include “CAMPEÓN,” which tackles his career and what it took for him to be a champion in the industry as well as his staple signature tropical fusion sound that he melds together so well with the Luny (Luny Tunes)-produced “RUMBATÓN.”

Not to mention, he attracted his most superb guest list yet. Rauw Alejandro and Nile Rodgers rolls through for “AGUA,” while he and Bad Bunny turn up on “X ÚLTIMA VEZ.” There’s also the unshakable and unforgettable “ZONA DE PERREO” with Natti Natasha and Becky G and “HOT” with Mr. Worldwide himself, Pitbull. Lil Jon and El Alfa team up for the international banger “BOMBÓN” and on “PASATIEMPO,” he links up with Myke Towers for an explosive anthem, while “PARA SIEMPRE” sees him turn up with Sech. He also collaborated with some of the industry’s hottest producers including Play-N-Skillz, Luny (Luny Tunes), Tainy, OMB, JBD, Dímelo Flow, Slow Mike, Nekxum, BK, Jhon El Diver, Wiso, Alex Killer, G.O.K.B., Maki Váez, Scott Summers, Chris Jedi, Gaby Music, Muzik Junkies, DJ Morphius and Blu Rey.

LEGENDADDY stands out as his first album in ten years and his boldest, brightest, and biggest musical statement ever.

For one last time, he will canvas the world on his sold-out “LA ÚLTIMA VUELTA” (The Last Round) tour. Promoted by Cardenas Marketing Network and Raphy Pina, MR Sold Out, the five-month trek includes some of the rapper/songwriters’ biggest headline shows in North America and Latin America to date.

On his retirement, Daddy Yankee said, “Today, I’m announcing my retirement from music by giving you my best production and concert tour. I will say goodbye celebrating these 32 years of experience with this new collector’s item, my album LEGENDADDY. I’m going to give you all the styles that have defined me in one single album.”

That album is LEGENDADDY, and it is here forever.

About Daddy Yankee

As a culture creator, game-changer, agent of change, and groundbreaker, Daddy Yankee has consistently inspired, impacted, and influenced generations of creators. An indisputable icon, he remains one of the most influential artists of all time, bringing reggaeton worldwide for the first time. Latin music and culture would not look, sound or feel the same without him. It’s hard to even imagine the genre itself without “Gasolina,” “Despacito” [with Luis Fonsi] or “Con Calma” [with Snow], and more.

Dreya Mac × Felixthe1st – Own Brand

With “Own Brand Freestyle” already surpassing 65 million combined global streams and topping Spotify’s Viral charts in the U.K., Australia, and Canada while charting in 62 countries total, it’s clear Dreya Mac and FelixThe1st have a gift for creating memorable, addictive songs. Now they’ve reimagined the track, shining a spotlight on Dreya’s verse and transforming it into the chorus. The two artists have paved a lane of their own with crisp flows, cheeky punch lines, and undeniable talent. Download/stream “Own Brand (Baddie),” which was released by Capitol Records, HERE.

The official video for “Own Brand (Baddie)” captures the two artists in their element and accompanied by a troupe of dancers. As the camera jumps from Dreya to Felix as they swap bars, viewers are transported to a variety of hyper-stylized mini-worlds. Think “West Side Story” meets Busta Rhymes’ “Gimme Some More” video meets the global viral dance moment that is happening around “Own Brand Freestyle,” thanks to a dance created by Dreya. Watch for cameos from the likes of Tennessee Thresher and others in the video. Charlie Di Placido (Jungle, Kojey Radical) directed and Ysabelle Capitule (Mya, Usher, Bruno Mars) served as choreographer. Watch HERE.

Brit school graduate and West London native Dreya originally fell in love with music as a medium for movement. She studied dance from the age of 14, later cutting her teeth as a choreographer. She also danced for many artists, including Dua Lipa, Rita Ora, and Stormzy. Her talents landed her a leading role in the seminal “Vossi Bop”—one of the only women to feature on the project. 

She released her debut single, “Skippin,” and the accompanying self-directed video in 2020, leading NPR to note, “Dreya Mac spits bars at a level far beyond a novice.” Dreya and Felix unleashed “Own Brand Freestyle” in late 2021 and quickly earned a nod from Pitchfork, airplay across BBC Radio 1, and a spot in the top 10 of Billboard‘s Song Breaker chart. The track became the #1 Sound on TikTok and has gone on to inspire over 15 million video creations with a staggering 20+ billion views combined on the platform. YouTube selected “Own Brand Freestyle” as their “Artist on the Rise” trending pick.

Naming Dreya as one of “The 22 Musicians Set to Rule 2022,” British Vogue hailed her as “an electrifying live performer with magnetic flow.” NME said, “Dreya is a funny, androgynous beacon of joy.” COMPLEX UK observed, “Merging her powerful raps with R&B-tinged vocals, Dreya Mac is bringing a refreshing energy to UK rap’s table, and we’re all ready for her to dish up more.”
