About Trippie Redd:

Since delivering his debut mixtape A Love Letter to You in 2017, multi-platinum-selling, chart-topping rapper/singer/songwriter Trippie Redd has continually defied genre boundaries, embedding his melodic take on rap with frenetic elements of rock-and-roll and heavy metal. A self-professed workaholic, Trippie has now debuted five consecutive projects in the top 5 of the Billboard 200 chart.

Born Michael Lamar White IV and raised in Canton, Ohio, he grew up on hip-hop icons like Tupac Shakur, Nas, and Jay-Z, but later became fascinated with the shock-rock of Slipknot and Rob Zombie. As he recalls, the urge to create his own music arose soon after his older brother (an aspiring rapper who went by the name Dirty Redd) died in a car accident when Trippie was 10. “I took his dream and did it myself,” Trippie says now. Drawing much of his inspiration from the free-flowing style and inventive lyricism of Lil Wayne, Trippie began recording in his cousin’s basement and later relocated to Atlanta to further hone his skills, quickly landing a record deal with 10K Projects.

Though 2020 brought its fair share of adjustments for the rapper with the arrival of COVID-19, Trippie used his time in quarantine to make some of his boldest career moves yet. He made his Hollywood acting debut in a cameo during an episode of Lil Dicky’s critically acclaimed DAVE. He also dropped his highly anticipated album, Pegasus, on Halloween. The mythical LP, which debuted at #2, included the intoxicating “Excitement” featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR and showed Trippie bridging the generational gap with the legendary Busta Rhymes on “I Got You.” The deluxe version of Pegasus comes in the form of NEON SHARK, a collaboration album with production from Travis Barker.

ORSON WILDS – DEBUT SINGLES, “KYOTO”

ORSON WILDS SHARE COVER OF PHOEBE BRIDGERS’ “KYOTO”

DEBUT SINGLES “STAND UP” & “MOTHERS DAUGHTERS” AVAILABLE NOW

Ahead of last week”s Grammys ceremony, Canadian duo Orson Wilds shared a performance of Phoebe Bridgers’ “Kyoto,” exclusively via Brooklyn Vegan. Today, the cover gets a wider release and is available across all streaming platforms.

“Phoebe Bridgers is the ultimate apocalypse music,” vocalist Eric Reid told Brooklyn Vegan. “It feels deeply personal and introspective but there”s also a level of nihilism and despair, which is frankly, everything I look for in an artist. “Punisher” was such a perfect soundtrack for the last year, and it helped both Brianna and myself get through some weird shit. “Kyoto” feels like the outlier on the album and felt the least voyeuristic to cover in terms of subject matter. It’s like a rock song, but super nuanced and not necessarily mixed the way you’d expect a rock song to be mixed, which is a huge part of what makes it so affecting. We approached it from a different angle and tried to keep it as live feeling as we could. We kept our takes to a minimum and sped it up a bit, I think it took like 4 hours to record.”

Orson Wilds’ debut studio singles, “Mothers Daughters” and “Stand Up,” were both recorded and produced by Will Yip (Panic! At The Disco, Turnstile, Title Fight), and will be included on the band”s forthcoming debut album expected to arrive later this year. Released in December, “Stand Up” is already closing in on one million streams globally. The track was commended by UproxxNorthern Transmissions, and The Alternative upon its release, with Uproxx declaring it “one of the most anthemic indie rock jams since Arcade Fire dropped “Wake Up.”” Both tracks are available now on all streaming platforms. Watch the official video for “Stand Up” here and “Mothers Daughters” here.

Orson Wilds, fronted by Eric Reid and Brianna Bordihn, have only played a handful of shows in the Southern Ontario area, focusing mainly on the honing of their craft and sound. This hard work paid off when Yip, an enthusiastic producer with bustling industry savvy, was so taken by the compositional strength of Orson Wilds’ songs that he took the band under his wing, helped them produce two new singles, and signed them to his imprint. Though Reid and Bordihn represent the core of Orson Wilds, an ever-evolving collective of friends and family round out the live iteration of the band with stomping, uplifting electric guitars, horns and woodwind sections, and thrashing, urgent percussion.

Queen’s Greatest Hits

Queen’s cornerstone “Greatest Hits” album is, once again, in the Top 10 of Billboard’s 200.

Released in 1981, the album has been on the charts for 412 weeks, finally landing at No. 8, up from its previous spot at No. 36. It previously peaked at No. 11 in 1992, the year following front man Freddie Mercury’s untimely death.

The now nine-time platinum album is also No. 1 on Billboard’s Vinyl Albums Chart with the second-largest sales week of 2020 for any vinyl release.

With monster hits from the iconic rock band like “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Will Rock You,” “We Are The Champions,” “Fat Bottomed Girls,” “Another One Bites the Dust” and so many more, it’s no wonder the album has stood the test of time.

Queen recently teamed up with both Target and Walmart to release brand new vinyl exclusives. Both are two-disc LPs, 180 gram.

Those opting for the Target exclusive will be treated to ruby blend marble vinyl while those who purchase from Walmart will receive red and white vinyl. The biggest fans of Queen might even be found purchasing both.

The band also recently released a live album with American Idol alum Adam Lambert at the helm. The album is titled “Queen + Adam Lambert Live Around The World,” and it landed at No. 1 on the UK’s official albums chart.

It was the first time a Queen album topped a chart since 1995’s “Made in Heaven.”

Queen is no stranger to the top ten, as this is their ninth album to land there. It will join the soundtrack for “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Greatest Hits I, II & III: The Platinum Collection,” “Classic Queen,” “The Game,” “Jazz.” “News of the World,” “A Day at the Races” and “A Night at the Opera.”

Queen’s “Greatest Hits” is still the best-selling album of all-time in the UK.

AUSTIN CITY LIMITS – THE MAVERICKS

By Cassandra Yany

Austin City Limits will spotlight renowned rock and country trailblazers The Mavericks on Nov. 21 at 8 p.m. CT/ 9 p.m. ET on PBS. The installment is part of the series’ 46th season and will showcase the band’s chart-topping, all Spanish-language album En Español.

The GRAMMY, CMA and ACM award-winning band reaches a career milestone with this being their first Spanish-language album, which debuted at no. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Pop Albums Chart. The genre-bending group return to their Miami roots to blend their eclecticism with a collection of Spanish language originals and traditional Latin songs that inspired them.

The four core Mavericks members— lead singer and songwriter Raul Malo, guitarist Eddie Perez, keyboardist Jerry Dale McFadden and drummer Paul Deakin— are elevated by horns, accordion and backing vocals for a powerful nine-musician combo. The band celebrates the diversity of cultures with their unique take on classic tracks from the vast Latin American catalog, starting off with the Cuban country track “La Sitiera,” which escalates to an exciting full-band bloom complete with horns and accordion. 

Malo— who is a first-generation Cuban American— introduces his late grandfather’s favorite song, “Me Olvidé de Vivir” by Julio Iglesias, which the Mavericks made their own in a country rendition. He also salutes one of his own favorite artists with the mariachi-flavored spin they take on Juan Gabriel’s “No Vale La Pena.”

The group delivers thrilling performances of new originals, including “Recuerdos,” which is backed by horns, and “Suspiro Azul,” which is amplified by standout harmonies. In tribute to performing at the house that Willie Nelson built, Malo gives a solo acoustic take on Nelson’s “Blue Eyes Crying In the Rain.” The band also performed Latin-influenced tracks form their 2013 reunion album In Time, including the lush “Come Unto Me,” featuring dueling guitar and accordion solos, and the energetic, rockabilly-flavored “As Long As There’s Loving Tonight.”

“Showcasing The Mavericks first all-Spanish album on Austin City Limits during the same week as the Latin Grammy Awards is perfect timing,” said ACL executive producer Terry Lickona. “Since I became co-producer of the Latin GRAMMYs, I’ve made it my mission to bring the joy and beauty of Latin music to the ACL stage every year. This show is a great ‘primer’ for that!”

The Mavericks’ episode was recorded in September and will be the second no-audience taping of the program due to the coronavirus pandemic. This marks the group’s third appearance on the show, being their first in two decades. 

During these tough times, ACL continues to provide viewers with a front row seat to live performances. The series airs weekly across the nation and full episodes are made available online for a limited time immediately following the broadcast. The second half of the Season 46 will be announced soon, with six new episodes to begin airing in January. Fans can also find exclusive songs, behind-the-scenes videos and full-length artist interviews on the ACL YouTube channel.

FEVER 333, grandson x Linkin Park

FEVER 333 and grandson covered two Linkin Park songs Wednesday for Spotify Singles.

It is the first time Spotify Singles will go into the catalog, and it’s in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Linkin Park’s diamond-selling album “Hybrid Theory.”

FEVER 333 delivered a sharpened version of “In The End,” which you can hear by clicking right here.

grandson gave listeners a more electronic version of “One Step Closer,” and you can listen to it right here. Both songs are exclusive to Spotify.

grandson said he first heard “In The End” the he was a kid, later learning all of Mike Shinoda’s verses.

“10 years later I played The Forum with Mike in front of thousands of people. Chester is an all-time great, and I could never try and sing like he does,” grandson said. “We had to pitch the song down just so I could come close to hitting the notes in this song. I just wanted to try and pay homage and do this incredible song justice.”

Jason Aalon-Butler of FEVER 333 said he’ll never forget the first time he heard about Linkin Park.

“In The End” was the song that made me believe that rap and rock still belonged together. I studied their tasteful marriage of the two styles from that moment on and created my own music with that in mind,” Aalon-Butler said.

“I wish I could tell my 14-year-old self that one day I’d receive a DM from Mike Shinoda about him liking my music. I wish even more that I could tell my younger self he’d offer to share his talents and energy with me to make more music. I don’t think 14-year-old me would believe it, though. 35-year-old me still doesn’t,” he said.

FEVER 333 is coming off the release of their latest EP titled “WRONG GENERATION.” They’re also currently live-streaming performances, and tickets can be purchased by clicking right here. You can also follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

grandson is heading into the release of his first full length album titled “Death of an Optimist” on Dec. 4. It will include his song “Riptide,” which is produced by Mike Shinoda. You can also follow him on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Kiana Ledé – KIKI

By Cassandra Yany

Platinum-selling artist Kiana Ledé released seven brand new songs Friday to expand her critically acclaimed album KIKI. These tracks help the Phoenix-born and LA-based singer to show more seduction, spirit and soul than she has before.

The deluxe version includes the single “Only Fan” featuring Jacquees, on which lustful verses, airy guitar and a steady beat create a throwback R&B energy. The two artists sing back and forth as Jacquees’ falsetto reaches a hypnotic peak. The album now contains a bonus track, “Youth” featuring GRAMMY Award-winning blues rock artist Gary Clark Jr., who brings smooth vocals and a head-bobbing riff to the song. 

KIKI was first released on April 3 and earned a spot in the Top 5 of the Billboard Top R&B Albums Chart, Top 5 of the Apple Music R&B/ Soul Albums Chart, Top 5 of the iTunes R&B/ Soul Albums Chart and Top 10 of the Apple Music Overall Albums Chart. It has garnered over 50 million streams and received praise from notable outlets such as ELLE, Billboard, Highsnobiety, Vibe and more.

Recently, Kiana Ledé teamed up with Usher for “This Day” from the Netflix original film Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey.

About Kiana Ledé

Just who is Kiana Ledé? On the one hand, you know her as a fierce and fiery force in R&B responsible for bangers such as the platinum-certified “EX,” “Mad At Me” and “Chocolate” feat. Ari Lennox and has received over 1 billion streams globally and praise from Complex, Vibe, Billboard, ROLLACOASTER Magazine and more. But, who is she? “KIKI,” she answers. On her aptly titled full-length debut, she reveals every side of herself: the vulnerability, the vitality, the anger, the lust, the loyalty, the joy, the darkness, and the truth as evinced on song.

Long before all of this, the songstress “from South Phoenix with Black, Mexican, Native American, and White ancestry” grew up between divorced parents. She played classical instruments and competed in pageants—but popped wheelies on dirt bikes and got under the hood to fix a car or two. Eventually, an adventurous spirit carried her from Arizona to Los Angeles where she began a journey that comes full circle in 2020.

Inhaler x Vevo DSCVR

Inhaler released two brand new videos through Vevo DSCVR on Wednesday for their songs titled “It Won’t Always Be Like This” and “When It Breaks.”

Vevo DSCVR focuses on developing up-and-coming artists through live performances, and they’ve carefully curated a catalog of musicians and bands in their spotlight.

Some of the artists include Billie Eilish, AB6IX and Alfie Templeman, and Vevo DSCVR has helped them reach wider audiences that may not have been exposed to their work yet.

The four members of Inhaler, Elijah Hewson, Robert Keating, Ryan McMahon and Josh Jenkinson, met in high school, bonding over bands like The Stone Roses, Joy Division, The Strokes, Depeche Mode, Interpol, Kings Of Leon and The Cure.

“It Won’t Always Be Like This” was their debut single, and it helped them to more than 25 million streams from a die-hard fan base.

The members explained “When It Breaks” as a song that communicates the anxiousness the entire world feels right now.

“It’s our interpretation of this strange and imperfect world we’ve come to live in,” the band said. “Things are gonna change and we are gonna be there when they do.”
