Oh Wonder – 22 Break

Oh Wonder is back today with new single “22 Break”, the title track from the unique duo’s surprise new album, 22 Break, out on October 8th. Listen and watch the video for “22 Break” HERE and pre-order 22 Break HERE.

The project was teased earlier this week by the cinematic visual for the short film set to accompany the record, which also previewed opening track “Baby”—watch HERE. All this follows 2020’s No One Else Can Wear Your Crown, and back-to-back top 10 albums from the band who have—on their own distinct terms—become one of UK pop’s more unsuspecting success stories (2.7 billion streams, 1.7 million adjusted album sales, and vocal fans in the likes of Billie Eilish, who covered “All We Do” during her Apple documentary).

By their own design, Oh Wonder have always flown a little below the public radar. Josephine Vander Gucht and Anthony West have played music together since 2014 and (on the down-low) been romantically involved since 2013. By the time they confirmed their engagement on No One Else Can Wear Your Crown, life was good: then of course the pandemic hit, and a 120-date world tour (plus, it transpired, much more besides) came crashing to the ground. This tumultuous and deeply personal time in their private lives is the subject of Oh Wonder’s fifth studio album, 22 Break. Written autonomously in their home studio, the songs that form it are messages about their true feelings, expressed before they were able to find the words to say to one another. It’s a brutally honest and powerfully beautiful record, and one that lets listeners into the Oh Wonder fold like never before. As Josephine puts it: “We were just writing songs. We had no idea we were writing a break-up album.”

Even without distraction, an audience, or adrenaline, Oh Wonder is not a band who sit still for long. But like many forced to analyze their work/life balance under lockdown, the couple had never really known a life together without Oh Wonder in it, either. In the pandemic’s early phases, Anthony and Josephine worked hard to fill that gap: Anthony even decided to open a coffee shop in Peckham (the gorgeous, meticulously designed Nola), which soon saw round-the-block queues and put many of their touring crew back to work. As they started working on new music, however, all the unspoken tensions between the pair tumbled out. All the time these anguished songs were pouring out, Oh Wonder never spoke about what was happening back in the house; never talking directly about the ending, but they both felt it was coming.

22 Break is a portal into such emotional states, and the life-changing, universal breakup themes (loneliness, inadequacy, resentment, fears for the future) as experienced in real-time by one couple in their garden shed. The production is icy, sparse, and filled with bloops and bleeps, like a message from the ether is trying to come through—which, in a way, it was. Amidst the darkness, there finally came a glimmer of hope. With the record written, the couple went away in September 2020 and finally talked. “It was such a weird thing, to make a break-up album with the person you’re breaking up with, while you’re breaking up,” Anthony reflects (the first in history, Josephine thinks). Even weirder, the album that almost ended them proved to be the band’s salvation: 22 Break is an ultimately cathartic, deeply hopeful project, the light at the end of the tunnel that was Oh Wonder’s quite particular pandemic. With the record complete, the band (true to their DIY spirit) threw themselves into the stunning short film that will accompany the full album and is previewed in the visuals for the title track.

Not many bands can make a break-up album that culminates in them tying the knot—but then again, Oh Wonder has never been like other bands. Coming out of 22 Break and all the soul-searching that it forced them to do, Josephine and Anthony finally got married in August this year. Whilst their relationship now has its own space to exist outside of Nola and Oh Wonder, the duo’s crossroads period has accidentally resulted in their most profound work to date “it’s awkward, it’s vulnerable, but it also saved us,” adds Josephine. Opening up to their fans and each other, the ‘Make or Break?’ poised by 22 Break is not so much a question as an active choice—to be as honest as possible, to move forward, and to begin a brand new chapter in the story of Oh Wonder.

G Herbo – Stand the Rain

Unleashing the heat at a prolific pace, chart-topping phenom and platinum-selling G Herbo uncovers the music video for his latest single “Stand The Rain (Mad Max).” Watch it HERE. It’s available on his critically acclaimed chart-topping new album, 25, out now. Listen to 25: HERE

The black-and-white (and green) visual shot by No More Heroes opens with Herbo reading his own “30 Under 30” cover story in Forbes. However, the action unfolds in frenetic fashion as the clip follows him to church, the basketball court, and the gun range as he delivers each successive rhyme with more intensity than the last. No matter what, he’ll make you feel like you can “Stand The Rain” too.

It also arrives on the heels of the music video for “Cold World,” which has already clocked 2.4 million YouTube views and counting. Of the track, Complex claimed Herbo “is reaching new heights” as it also attracted plugs from The Source, Revolt, AllHipHop, and many more.

25 recently crashed the Top 5 of the Billboard Top 200. It not only became his second straight bow in the Top 10 of the chart, but it also emerged as his highest debut yet. It has amassed over 182 million streams and earned widespread praise. Starring on its latest cover, KAZI Magazine went as far as to christen him “Chicago’s Street Rap Messiah,” and HYPEBEAST dubbed it, “Arguably the rapper’s most vulnerable record to date.

G Herbo opens up like never before on the record. Complex hailed it as “a confessional album that opens a window into his world at the quarter-century mark.” His raps rip deeper, while the hooks hit harder than ever. He’s delivered a project that speaks to the struggles of the Windy City and this generation while showing it’s possible to build an empire.

As such, G Herbo has assembled his biggest, boldest, and the best body of work to date with 25. Among these 19 tracks, he recruited a cohort of A-list collaborators, including Polo G and Lil Tjay on “Cry No More,” 21 Savage on “T.O.P.”, and The Kid LAROI and Gunna on “You Can’t.” Through and through, his authoritative flows, incisive choruses, and raw heart shine.

He bulldozed a path for the project earlier this year with “Break Yoself,” and “Really Like That.” The FADER attested, “The tracks feel like siblings with their gunmetal-black sounds and visions of violence and wealth, though I can imagine turning up to ‘Really Like That’.” Plus, 25 boasts the fan-favorite “Statement,” nearing 10 million streams.

G Herbo is back, and he’s ready to flip the game upside down once and for all on 25. Merch including T-Shirts, Hoodies, and CD’s are available to shop HERE.

About G HERBO

After quietly grinding for years out of his native Chicago, G Herbo established himself as not only a platinum-selling, chart-topping phenomenon, but also as a staunch mental health advocate and proponent for change in the black community. Following a string of acclaimed projects, his critically celebrated third album PTSD bowed at #7 on the Billboard Top 200, received praise from Rolling Stone as “his most vulnerable album to date,” and yielded one of the most important songs of 2020—the platinum-certified title track “PTSD” [feat. Juice WRLD, Lil Uzi Vert, & Chance the Rapper]. Additionally, he launched the Swervin’ Through Stress youth mental health program which was recognized by Forbes 30 Under 30. To further his commitment to championing these causes, he is also remodeling an old, shuttered, public elementary school into a community center in Chicago. In 2021, he reached new heights yet again. His fourth full-length offering, 25, soared to the Top 5 of the Billboard Top 200, marking his second consecutive Top 10 and highest debut to date. Racking up hundreds of millions of streams right out of the gate, Pitchfork attested, “As Chicago’s G Herbo has gotten older, his music has become more urgent,” while he adorned KAZI’s cover. Simultaneously, he appeared on multiple #1 albums such as Pop Smoke’s Faith [“Run Down”] and The Kid LAROI’s F*CKLOVE3+:OVER YOU  [“Don’t Leave Me”] as well as collaborating with Dave East and Harry Fraud. With a larger-than-life fanbase, G Herbo has shared the stage with everyone from Miley Cyrus to Marshmello.

LILY ROSE DELIVERS POWERFUL TRACK “STRONGER THAN I AM”

Big Loud Records, Back Blocks Music, and Republic Record’s breakthrough artist Lily Rose continues to deliver new music with the release of the title track from her forthcoming project, “Stronger Than I Am” available everywhere. With the “vocal presence and writing talents that make her poised to take her career to the next level,” (CMT) Rose will release her introductory project Stronger Than I Am, due Oct. 1st.

Marking the fifth song Rose has released from the highly anticipated project, “Stronger Than I Am” dropped alongside a performance-driven lyric video featuring Rose. The ending implies there is more to come and leaves fans hanging as she prepares to release the full project.

“When it comes to ‘Stronger Than I Am,’ I’ve honestly never been more excited for a song,” shares Rose. “When I first heard it, I knew it was a story I would be able to passionately tell and create a moment with fans. It includes everything a great Country song needs: a little bit of sadness, a little bit of drinking, and an incredible hook.”

Written by Griffin Palmer and Geoff Warburton (Shawn Mendez, Demi Lovato), “Stronger Than I Am” is about the struggle of trying to stay strong through heartbreak, admitting sometimes the heartache wins out. Rose walks the listener through the steps she has tried taking in order to move on singing, “I’ve tried taking our pictures off the wall / I’ve tried working from dusk until dawn / I’ve tried all of the friends I can call / Oh but none of it’s helping at all / Something’s that stronger than I am” Rose delivers in the raspy, soulful title track. The project will include two unreleased tracks, accompanied by previous releases “Villain,” “Overnight Sensation,” “Remind Me of You,” “Know My Way Around”, and “I Don’t Smoke.”

Recently featured as part of CMT’s new digital series Viral to Verified, the “rising star” (Billboard) opened up to fans about her whirlwind path to success, from being down to her last dollar to striking a chord with millions of fans worldwide, seemingly becoming “an overnight sensation, 13 years in the making.” Racking up over 78M streams since her Dec. 2020 debut, Rose notched her first number one on Sirius XM’s The Highway Top 30 Countdown and has received critical acclaim from Billboard, Rolling Stone, CMT, Music Row and SPIN. Continuing to pick up steam in 2021, Rose will release her introductory project on Oct. 1 before she joins Chris Lane’s Fill Them Boots tour, kicking off next month on Oct. 28 in Memphis.

Lily Rose’s STRONGER THAN I AM Track Listing:

1. “Villain” (Lily Rose, Mackenzie Carpenter, Kyle Clark)
2. “Stronger Than I Am” (Griffen Palmer, Geoff Warburton)
3. “I Don’t Smoke” (Daniel Gerard Breland, Lalo Guzman, Michael Tyler)

Witnessing the signing of the first South African artist on the Republic roster will inspire others on the continent, and we’re proud to be leading that charge one artist at a time,” says Sipho Dlamini, CEO Universal Music Africa – Sub Saharan Africa.

Following “three weeks at university, he left school and focused on music inspired by the likes of Sam Smith and Kanye West. He performed anywhere possible, singing in exchange for dinner at local pubs. He even recorded in English and ten different African languages. Taking over social media, Lloyiso amplified his voice globally by posting covers on Facebook before embracing YouTube.

CAMYLIO DROPS NEW SINGLE – SOMETIMES

Primed to leap from TikTok ubiquity to mainstream pop stardom, buzzing vocal phenomenon Camylio unveils his new single “sometimes” today via Republic Records—listen here.

On the track, Camylio’s voice glides over sparse synths laced with icy guitar, recounting memories from a frayed relationship. This minimalism gives way to vocal fireworks on the hook as he cries out, “Sometimes love just isn’t enough. Sometimes perfect couples break up. And I hope you find the love you can trust, but sometimes I just wish it was us.” Emotion bleeds through the cracks of his emotionally raw delivery.

Of the meaning behind the song, Camylio says, “At this point you’ve been broken up for a while, and the anger has faded. Your memory might be a little biased as you struggle to get used to being alone, but regardless, you miss them. You start going to all the places you used to go, partially out of nostalgia, partially to convince yourself that you’re moving on and can handle it. Whether you see them out on a first date at the coffee shop where you first met or just overhear the news from a mutual friend, you find out they’ve started seeing someone new. Ouch. The person you loved and imagined a future with is starting a future with someone else.”

He continues, “You’re happy for them, but at the end of the day you still wish they could have found happiness with you. It’s hard to watch someone you still love be with someone else, but some things just aren’t meant to be, and sometimes love just isn’t enough.”

“Sometimes” arrives on the heels of the singer, songwriter, and producer’s debut single “love and hate,” which has amassed over 3 million total streams to date. Right out of the gate, Variance Magazine assured, “his buzzworthy status online isn’t a fleeting one,” and noted, “Camylio leans in on his own vocals, delivering an emotional performance which has a Shawn-Mendes-meets-Dermot-Kennedy energy to it.” Alfitude predicted he “will undeniably hit the mainstream very rapidly,” and he left Sweety High so “blown away” they raved, “his voice is truly out of this world, and the lyrics of this single are heartbreaking, yet relatable.” “sometimes” and “love and hate” set the stage for Camylio’s forthcoming debut EP, all while he has impressively attracted 3.3 million TikTok followers and generated 38.7 million “likes” in the process.

Stay tuned for more music to come from Camylio soon!

About Camylio:
Clad in a classic black shirt against a dark backdrop, Camylio leans into his microphone, presses down on the ivory of his keyboard, and sings with enough passion and power to stir the world to its feet. It’s a scene meant for a stadium, but he’s in his bedroom framed by a smartphone camera yet beamed out to an audience of millions on social media. Throughout 2021, he performed like this at a dizzying pace and quietly emerged as a phenomenon renowned for a Richter Scale-registering voice. For his 16th birthday, his parents allowed him to choose either “a car or a laptop.” Thankfully, he chose the latter, spending countless hours pouring over song credits and learning how to produce via YouTube and Twitch. During November 2020, he launched his TikTok with one video daily. He filled an Amazon shopping cart with a $200 backdrop, ten black hoodies, ten black long-sleeve shirts, and five black short-sleeve shirts in order to maintain a consistent aesthetic. His cover of “Dusk Till Dawn” by Sia and ZAYN exploded with 7 million-plus views. Eventually, he broke the internet as his take on SLANDER’s “Love Is Gone” feat. Dylan Matthew generated north of 50 million views in under ten days. He caught the attention of Republic Records and signed to the label. After shaking the internet, the 20-year-old New York singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer properly introduces himself with a series of singles and his debut EP.

ZILLAKAMI - NOT WORTH IT photo credit by Kierra Felton use by 360 Magazine

ZILLAKAMI – NOT WORTH IT

ZILLAKAMI IS BACK WITH A NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO “NOT WORTH IT”

WATCH HERE

Listen to “Not Worth It:” HERE

ZillaKami of City Morgue shares a rock-driven new single and video entitled “Not Worth It” via Hikari Ultra/Republic Records. The guitar-laden track shows another side of the dynamic New York disruptor. Distortion wraps around a glitchy beat as he flexes his falsetto between moments of incisive introspective reflection, “Everybody loves me, but I don’t deserve it.” As always, his words cut deep. While in the music video, ZillaKami’s rock essence shines in a crew of moshers swarming a skate park.

It arrives on the heels of “FROSTY” which attracted critical acclaim. Right out of the gate, XXL named it among “The 13 Best New Songs This Week,” while HotNewHipHop christened him “one of the earliest and most creative members of the emo-rap wave.” It has gathered 3.2 million Spotify streams and counting and 2.1 million views on the haunting Here.

Dropped earlier this summer, “BADASS” [feat. Lil Uzi Vert] generated north of 10 million streams and 2 million YouTube views on the static audio. This release garnered widespread tastemaker praise as well. Complex attested the track “channels the best of Zillakami’s distinctively hard-hitting approach to rap,” and The FADER praised it as “the perfect blend of ZillaKami’s dark sound and Uzi Vert’s playful delivery.” HotNewHipHop highlighted the “earworm of a hook” and “two electrifying verses” courtesy of ZillaKami.”

Prior, “CHAINS” posted up 2.6 million Spotify streams and 2.9 million views on the explosive Here. HotNewHipHop fittingly described it as “a hard-hitting, head-banging anthem.”

ZillaKami might be rap and rock’s worst nightmare come true in the best way. He defiantly devours guitar-backed beats without one f*ck given. As one-half of City Morgue with partner-in grime SosMula, he has toppled charts, sold-out shows, and scared the shit out of anybody with a conscience. In 2019, the group’s second full-length offering, CITY MORGUE VOL. 2: AS GOOD AS DEAD, held multiple charts hostage, seizing the #1 spot on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart and #1 on the Apple Music Rock Albums Chart. The legendary Mike Dean jumped aboard as Executive Producer of the Deluxe Edition. Meanwhile, the 2020 follow-up TOXIC BOOGALOO EP scored #96 on the Billboard Top 200, #9 on the Billboard Top Album Sales Chart, #6 on the Billboard Alternative Albums Chart, #13 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart, and #4 on the Nielsen Music Digital Albums Chart. Not to mention, they’ve pulled in 100 million-plus streams and 100 million-plus views to date. ZillaKami is a rare talent who is seamlessly rising to the ranks of major artists such as Trippie Redd and Ski Mask The Slump God, with whom he recently collaborated. He’s a shape-shifting sonic force with an unbreakable grip on rap and rock that’s ready to bleed like never before on his 2021 solo debut.
