YSB TRIL × BANKROL HAYDEN – TOUCHDOWN

YSB TRIL & BANKROL HAYDEN DITCH FOOTBALL PRACTICE IN NEW VIDEO “TOUCHDOWN” 

After unleashing his thrilling video “Ain’t The Same,” Tril tag-teams with Bankrol Hayden for their explosive anthem “Touchdown.” Directed by Rick Lancaster, “Touchdown” is a bouncy anthem highlighting the pair’s late-night escapades. Shot in Los Angeles, the young tandem ditch football practice to have fun with some spry, athletic women. Looking to cause mischief around town with his paintball gun, Tril’s steely confidence and sticky hook sets the tempo for this lively collaboration. Watch HERE.

For its first full week, “Touchdown” recently passed 500K global streams to-date on Spotify and was featured on a bevy of playlists including Hip-Hop Mixtape, Most Necessary, Signed XOXO and NMF. After its release, the record also went as high as No. 2 on SoundCloud’s New and Hot chart.

Throughout 2020, the rising rookie showcased his versatility and rock-solid work ethic, amassing his streaming totals to a whopping five million independently.  Anchored by his electric single “Feel It,” which sits at nearly two million streams on Spotify, Tril’s standout year earned him a performance slot for NBA #2KFest celebration. Last April, GrungeCake also lauded the young hyphenate for his “undeniably catchy, singsongy hook and fast-paced verses” on “Do It Most.” Then, in December, Flaunt Magazine highlighted Tril’s action-packed video “All Da Action” and dubbed him “a force to be reckoned with.” To cap off his strong run, Tril finished the year strong with his visual “Workin.”

Tril thrives on self-reliance, as he’s proven to record his music, film his videos, and has even developed a strong connection with his fans on social media. With Roddy Ricch and Juice WRLD serving as influences, YSB’s road to greatness will come sooner than later.

Grammy Awards Wine and Cocktail Pairings

*Congrats to ‘Best New Artist’ Grammy Winner Megan Thee Stallion

With the 63rd annual GRAMMY Awards rapidly approaching, it is time to start thinking about accolade-worthy wine and cocktail pairings to savor during the broadcast on March 14. Here are our picks for Best Beverages paired perfectly with each Record of the Year nominee.

BLACK PARADE (Beyoncé)

Trivento Reserve Maximum Red Blend ($10.99)

Beyoncé has been known to enjoy a glass of red wine and we can think of no better way than to toast this accolade than with a wine named after Trivento Reserve’s charismatic and charming winemaker – Maximiliano Ortiz. This deep ruby-red Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon blend, presents an aromatic complexity given by blackcurrants, red and black berries, black pepper, cinnamon, tobacco and smoky notes from the oak. In the mouth, the wine is round and sweet with good structure, persistent and pleasant tannins. The long finish is accompanied by oaky notes.

COLORS (Black Pumas)

Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot ($6.99)

Given Adrian Quesada’s impressive career spanning multiple genres, we’re thinking he might appreciate a wine brand that annually supports the Latin Grammys…this bright and intense ruby red Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot blend presents with dark berries and cocoa which carry over to the palate and are rounded out with mild but sexy tannins.

ROCKSTAR (DaBaby Featuring Roddy Ricch)

Frontera Sauvignon Blanc ($6.99)

DaBaby has been spotted enjoying a glass of white during his travels. Frontera Sauvignon Blanc is fruity in character with citric and peach aromas. Light in flavor, this fresh and well-balanced sauvignon blanc is the perfect white for DaBaby and his crew.

SAY SO (Doja Cat)

Doja Cat has not been shy about sharing her tips on making a delicious cocktail. Perhaps she’ll like this one created by Cristóbal Srokowski, Ron Abuelo Global Brand Ambassador.

VERACRUZ

1 1/2 oz. Ron Abuelo 7 Años

3/4 oz. Orange juice

3/4 oz. Lime juice

1/3 oz. Honey syrup 2:1

1/2 oz. Cinnamon syrup

2 dashes Angostura bitters

3/4 oz. Egg white

Technique: Add all the ingredients in the shaker and dry shake so the egg white is emulsified. Then shake again with ice added. Double strain into a coupette or a martini glass and garnish with an orange peel.

EVERYTHING I WANTED (Billie Eilish)

Trivento Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon ($10.99)

While Billie Eilish is not quite old enough to legally enjoy wine in the US, we do think she would appreciate a brand that has been implementing environmental and social policies for more than 12 years. Since 2008, Trivento embarked on one of the company’s most important educational and inclusive initiatives by bringing in a CENS satellite classroom for their employees to complete their secondary studies. And each year, Trivento has added social and environmental actions to become one of the industry brand’s most committed to society and the environment. Through strong alliances with the United Nations Global Compact , the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) , the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) through the Argentine Business Council for Sustainable Development (CEADS) and the Network of companies for diversity., Trivento is committed to giving back in each bottle what nature has given them.

This Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendoza has an intense ruby red color, with violet notes that trend towards dark orange with time. In the nose, aromas of black pepper, tobacco, candied wild berries such as redcurrants and blackberries are perceived. In the mouth, the wine is powerful with persisting tannins and well-structured body.

DON’T START NOW (Dua Lipa)

Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon ($6.99)

Dua Lipa is a fan of a glass of red. We also think she’ll love that this wine sports a QR code on its bottle that will lead one to a “Frontera Big and Bold Reds. Drink Them with Attitude” playlist. From Chile’s Central Valley, this bright and intense ruby red wine with violet reflections has aromas of fresh red fruits, together with toasted notes, highlighting coffee and chocolate. The palate offers harmonic tannins, medium body, good aftertaste. Think of it as the ideal wine to serve with red meats, cheese, spicy stews and pasta with spicy sauces.

CIRCLES (Post Malone)

Les Cadrans de Lassègue ($30)

Post Malone has shared a preference for a nice Bordeaux. Les Cadrans, named after the sundials on the facade of the château, in honor of the incredible sun exposure that Château Lassègue enjoys, is the estate’s second label. It is meticulously produced by sixth and seventh generation Vignerons Pierre and Nicolas Seillan at the Saint-Émilion estate the family jointly owns with the Jackson Family.

SAVAGE (Megan Thee Stallion Featuring Beyoncé) 🏆

When two superstars collaborate, they should be toasted with an aptly named beverage…

CRITIC PASSION

60 ml Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon

30 ml orange juice

30 ml passion fruit

10 ml simple syrup

Ice

Orange peel and mint garnish

Shake all ingredients together (except for the orange peel and mint for garnish). Strain into wine glass over ice. Garnish with orange peel and mint leaf.

Yungblud illustrated by Mina Tocalini for 360 MAGAZINE.

Yungblud – Strawberry Lipstick

YUNGBLUD shares his explosive new song “Strawberry Lipstick” and its equally outrageous video. Released via Locomotion/Interscope Records, “Strawberry Lipstick” is the brand-new single from the British singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist full-length sophomore album, due out later this year. Stream/download “Strawberry Lipstick” HERE, and check out the video HERE.

Directed by Christian Breslauer (Roddy Ricch, Tory Lanez, Marshmello) the “Strawberry Lipstick” video stars YUNGBLUD, his band, and L.A.-based singer/songwriter Jesse Jo Stark. With a whirlwind intensity true to YUNGBLUD’s chaotic charisma, the visual places him in a series of outlandish scenarios: mixing it up in a boxing ring, dancing in a custom Union Jack dress, lounging in a bathtub full of strawberries alongside Stark. A perfect foil to YUNGBLUD, Stark is a captivating presence.

Co-produced by YUNGBLUD with his longtime collaborators Chris Greatti (Poppy, Grimes) and Zakk Cervini (Bishop Briggs, Machine Gun Kelly), “Strawberry Lipstick” is a delightfully warped love song propelled by the 22-year-old artist’s snarling vocals and larger-than-life energy. With its fuzzed-out riffs and glam-rock flash, the gloriously catchy track also spotlights YUNGBLUD’s gender-bending tendencies.

Endlessly creative, YUNGBLUD also recently announced the upcoming release of his new graphic novel, The Twisted Tales of the Ritalin Club Volume 2: Weird Times at Quarry Banks University. The follow-up to The Twisted Tales of the Ritalin Club (his 2019 debut as a graphic novelist), the comic follows YUNGBLUD and his super-powered friends as they navigate university life and all its drugs, sex, and relationship drama — ultimately finding themselves caught in a trip that may cost them their lives. Due out via Z2 Comics this November, Weird Times at Quarry Banks University is now available for preorder in multiple editions. Go HERE for more info.

Born in Yorkshire, England, YUNGBLUD (aka Dominic Harrison) is a multi-instrumentalist who first picked up a guitar at age two and began writing his own songs at age 10. The 22-year-old artist is known for voicing what he feels are major concerns for his generation, using his music to unite and empower the youth of today. After breaking onto the scene with his self-titled EP, YUNGBLUD made his full-length debut with 21st Century Liability — a 2018 release that channeled his outrage about the state of the world into confrontational yet catchy songs steeped in punk fury and pop melodicism. The following year, YUNGBLUD released Live In Atlanta and the hope for the underrated youth EP, which debuted in the top 10 on the UK Official Albums chart. Over the years, YUNGBLUD has performed to sold-out crowds in over 20 countries and played some of the world’s biggest festivals, including Austin City Limits, Life Is Beautiful, Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds Festivals, and Vans Warped Tour.
