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.

Bauhaus band via goldenvoice for use by 360 Magazine

BAUHAUS ANNOUNCES LA SHOW

Following two electrifying sets at Cruel World Festival that took place in Pasadena, CA, BAUHAUS will be returning to the Los Angeles area for a show at The Greek Theatre, Thursday, September 29th. Presales begin Wednesday, June 15th with sales to the general public on Friday, June 17th 10:00am PT. Tickets are available via AXS.com.

  • Cruel World Presale: Wed, June 15 @ 10am PT
  • Golden Voice Presale: Thurs, June 16 @ 10am PT
  • General Public: Fri, 6/17 @ 10am PT

In addition, Denver, CO show at The Mission Ballroom which was originally scheduled for May 25th that had been postponed has now been rescheduled for September 26th. Tickets for the May 25th show will be honored and will be available at HERE.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Bauhaus is unable to reschedule the Tempe, AZ show and the show is officially canceled. Refunds will be processed at point of purchase.

“Shadows of the band swayed in the strobe lights while Murphy’s spindly arms were outstretched in the starched position of a crucifix. It was the height of haunted heaven for those looking for their fix of the dark side.” – LOS ANGELES TIMES

“Singer Peter Murphy often retreated to the shadows while guitarist Daniel Ash pulled harsh shards of sound from his guitar. ‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead,’ the band’s signature song, let Murphy and Ash continue in that manner, which bassist David J and drummer Kevin Haskins kept the night rumbling on.” – LOS ANGELES DAILY NEWS

“Bauhaus epitomized the spirit of Cruel World…. Under a nearly full moon – appropriately, a lunar eclipse coincided with the festival – but often in shadow, Bauhaus’ potent set had moments of sheer macabre magic.” – VARIETY

“Goth rock pioneers Bauhaus delivered a chilling rendition of their debut single, ‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead’ at their first live show in 13 years Sunday. The gig took place at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, capturing the band in fine form as they effortlessly moved from the song’s abstract, spine-tingling intro into its eerily serene guitar jangle. Frontman Peter Murphy expertly navigated the song’s steady build as well, unleashing a mighty, reverb-soaked howl toward the end as he sang,

‘Oh Bela, Bela’s undead’.” – ROLLING STONE

“Unlike most bands of their vintage, Bauhaus have retained a thrillingly raw, visceral, experimental edge. While Murphy’s still-powerful voice careened between strangulated croak and feral howl on high-drama songs such as In the Flat Field and The Passion of Lovers, Daniel Ash’s guitar was all jagged scrapes, disruptive shudders and coffin-lid creaks. One of the band’s biggest hits, She’s in Parties, opened out into an enjoyably rambling avant-rock instrumental..Bauhaus put the disco into discordant.” – THE TIMES (UK)

“Anticipation was electric for their return – a line stretched around the block before doors, a queue that only rivaled that to the merch table – and fans came out dressed to the nines. The band did not disappoint.” – BROOKLYN VEGAN

“Those who expected to see an iconic band were not disappointed..it was clear that Bauhaus were back with a vengeance.” – BUZZBANDS.LA

JUANES – Un Dia Normal

Celebrating a milestone anniversary for one of Latin Music’s seminal and uplifting albums this century, Universal Music Latino has announced two special 20-year anniversary editions of JUANES’ record-setting and global breakthrough album, Un Dia Normal. A digital-only 20-year Anniversary edition (remastered in HighResAudio and Dolby Atmos) is now available at all major Digital Music providers, while a limited vinyl, CD and cassette special edition (providing fans with a combination of demo recordings & Juanes‘ personal commentary) can now be pre-ordered HERE. Here’s what people had to say. 

“Twenty years ago, Juanes released his breakthrough album…  with its mix of catchy pop, cutting rock, and traditional Latin sounds, Un Día Normal took him to an entirely new level. It spent 92 weeks on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart, setting a record at the time, and it spun off gigantic back-to-back hits such as ‘A Dios Le Pido,’ ‘Mala Gente,’ and ‘Es Por Ti,’ all songs that helped define pop-rock in Spanish for that era. The album won six Latin Grammy [awards], including Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Record of the Year—and it made Juanes a star. …he remembers putting together the album during a hectic, emotional time, filled with highs and lows that inspired the sound of the record. He talks about the changes he was going through at the time, how he drew from his past, and how Un Día Normal changed the game,” said Rolling Stone. 

“One of Latin Music’s greatest… and most essential albums…  Juanes‘ contagious beats and socially conscious lyrics were a huge success… single ‘A Dios le Pido’ became a Latin anthem… and  ‘Un Dia Normal’ conquered the Billboard Latin Albums chart for two straight years, remaining in the top 10 for 92 weeks and won [six] Latin Grammy awards. …it perfectly captured the mainstream possibilities of singing in Spanish,” said Billboard.

Juanes on the Album

“I was passing through a very dark moment and a very light moment, and I think Un Día Normal really showed that in the music. Songs like ‘A Dios le Pido’ and ‘Es Por Ti’ were inspired by my family, my hope for better days, and also my wife, actually. I was completely in love and I thought at [the] time that my life was really changing in a very positive way. Un Día Normal reflected all of that. At the beginning of my musical journey, I started with folk music from all of South America. It was very normal [for] me to listen to tango and bolero, rancheras, vallenatos, cumbias. Then, when I became a teenager, I became crazy over rock music. I was an extremely big fan of heavy metal and Metallica. And then at some point around my twenties, I just realized that I needed to go back to my roots and I wanted to bring some elements of all of that to my music.”

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.
