Love Goes follows 2017’s The Thrill Of It All, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and also topped the charts in the U.K., Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands and Belgium. Awarded four stars by Rolling Stone, the album included the hit single “Too Good At Goodbyes,” which recently became Smith’s second song to receive over a billion streams on Spotify, after “Stay With Me.” Smith, who has won GRAMMY®, BRIT, Golden Globe and Oscar awards, recently featured on Tiwa Savage’s new song, “Temptation.”  View the full list of Smith’s RIAA certifications HERE.

Says Smith, “The last two years has been the most experimental time of my life, personally but also musically. Every time I went into the studio, I promised myself I would shoot for the stars and have no limitations. The result has been so magical and so therapeutic and FUN. My love for music is so broad and all of my musical guilty pleasures became pleasures. No guilt, no shame, just the love of singing and creating and dancing. I am so thankful to every human who embraced my creativity and direction and allowed me to be whoever I wanted to be in that studio on that day listen to these songs with an open heart and treat each song like a different flower from the garden, have fun with them, I tried not to take myself too seriously when writing a few of these songs. I hope they make you smile, because they made and make me.”

Smith worked with a roll call of revered collaborators including Steve Mac (Ed Sheeran, Celine Dion), Shellback/MXM (Robyn, Pink, Britney Spears), Labrinth masterminds Stargate as well as good friend Guy Lawrence (Disclosure) and long-term collaborator Jimmy Napes to curate a collection of songs written over the course of the past two years, all displaying individuality with each one telling a different story.

Tiwa Savage New Single

Tiwa Savage released her new single, “Temptation,” today, just ahead the release of her fourth studio album.

“Temptation” is the fourth song to be released from her upcoming album, which is called “Celia” and will be released Friday.

Her new song features four-time Grammy Award-winner Sam Smith, who also aided in the writing process.

Savage is known as the “Queen of Afrobeats” and is the most popular female artist in Africa. She released the first single from her album, “Dangerous Love,” last month, and fans around the globe will be treated to the whole record in less than one week.

Savage was born in Nigeria but moved to London with her family at 11 years old. She earned a degree in business administration from the University of Kent, but she remained determined to pursue music.

After attending Berklee College of Music, she moved to New York City where she secured connections in the music industry. She eventually moved back to Nigeria and is now one of the most celebrated artists in the world.

She has combined many genres of music on her way to winning the MTV Europe Music Award for Best African Act and has been nominated for four Channel O Music Video Awards and five World Music Awards.

She now uses her platform for her activism. She has her own Instagram account dedicated to giving a voice to rape victims.

Tiwa Savage – Temptation ft. Sam Smith

Today, Nigerian-born singer/songwriter Tiwa Savage shares her new single “Temptation,” featuring multi-GRAMMY Award-winning pop phenomenon Sam Smith. Released via Motown Records, “Temptation” is the latest single from Savage’s highly anticipated fourth studio album Celia, due out this Friday. The track is written by Tiwa Savage, Sam Smith, and Fireboy DML. It was recorded in Lagos, Nigeria and is produced by London.

Listen to “Temptation” by Tiwa Savage feat. Sam Smith HERE 

Hailed as the “Queen of Afrobeats,” Savage is the most popular female artist in Africa, and arguably the most popular artist in Nigeria. Last month, the globally celebrated fashion icon offered the first glimpse at her forthcoming album with “Dangerous Love” — a laid-back and enchanting track built on her signature blend of R&B and Afrobeats. Marking her directorial debut, the song’s video finds Savage co-directing alongside Ibra Ake (Childish Gambino, Beyoncé) for a stunning visual shot in Lagos, Nigeria.

Named after her mother, Celia showcases Savage’s extraordinary vocal talent and the incredible musical growth she’s experienced over the years. Born in Lagos, she grew up attending church with her parents and soon developed a love for performing, then relocated to London with her family at the age of 11. At the age of 16, she found herself singing backing vocals for George Michael — a turn of events that quickly led to working with the likes of Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson, Emma Bunton, and Blu Cantrell.

Despite having already completed a degree in business administration at the University of Kent, Savage was determined to pursue music and landed a scholarship at the esteemed Berklee College of Music in Boston. Although she later moved New York City and linked up with various producers and industry professionals, she eventually returned to Nigeria (a move partly motivated by the lack of true female superstars in her home country). In 2019, she signed an exclusive recording contract with Universal Records, releasing her first global single “49-99” under Motown Records that summer. By the following spring, Savage had graced the cover of Billboard magazine’s first issue devoted entirely to Africa, alongside Afrobeat superstars Davido and Mr Eazi.

Through the years, Savage’s fearlessness in merging eclectic genres has more than paid off, earning her an abundance of awards and accolades. To that end, she made history in 2018 by becoming the first female to win the MTV Europe Music Award for Best African Act. She’s since garnered four Channel O Music Video Award nominations, five World Music Award nominations, and a multitude of nominations from the MTV Africa Music Awards, BET Awards, MOBO Awards, and many more. She’s also undertaken a number of philanthropic endeavors, supporting several youth engagement organizations and breast-cancer-screening projects across Nigeria and beyond. Additionally, Savage is very active in #JusticeForUwa, loudly voicing her disgust at the rape of a young girl in a church in Nigeria, and creating an Instagram account where rape victims can speak out.

Disclosure – My High

Disclosure’s new single & video, “My High” ft. Aminé and slowthai, out today Track Is from new Album, ENERGY, Set For August 28 Release. The pulsing new single finds Aminé and slowthai going head to head on an insanely exciting hip-house rampage. A distinct leap away from the club tracks offered on the Ecstasy EP and the more distinctive Disclosure production on “ENERGY,” “My High” further demonstrates the versatility and innovation harnessed by the Lawrence brothers. 

 The dynamic official video was shot pre-quarantine in Mexico City and Los Angeles. Directed by French filmmaker Simon Cahn (Danny Brown, Denai Moore), it features performances from both rappers. “We always wanted to work with rappers, we just didn’t know any and we had no means of contacting them… there aren’t a lot of rappers in Reigate,” says Disclosure. “Writing ‘My High’ with Aminé was a lot of fun, he’s hilarious and may as well be a comedian. He writes so quickly and it’s amazing to watch. He brought so much energy to this already very energetic tune that when we got home to London in January, there was only one guy capable of matching it… slowthai.” 

Aminé and slowthai are not the only rappers on ENERGY – Mick Jenkins, Channel Tres and the legend that is Common also appear. Other features include the inimitable Kelis and Fatoumata Diawara, who collaborated with Disclosure on the GRAMMY-nominated “Ultimatum.” Cameroon’s Blick Bassy brings his own flow to the table while a powerhouse team of Kehlani & Syd ease the pace with their contribution. Eric Thomas – the hip hop preacher whose words memorably appeared on 2013’s “When a Fire Starts to Burn” – injects a hit of carnival-infused verve into a static and sober summer on the title track. 

Fans who pre-order the album digitally will instantly receive “My High” plus the title track. ENERGY will also be available on vinyl, CD and cassette.This year marks 10 years since Disclosure debuted with the single “Offline Dexterity.” In that decade, Guy and Howard Lawrence, who are still in their 20s, have released two albums – Settle (2013) and Caracal (2015) – clocked up 5.1 billion streams and 4.8 million album sales, received five GRAMMY nominations, sold 500,000 tickets to their headline shows and topped festival bills all over the world. Both of their full-length albums topped the U.K. Official Albums chart and received GRAMMY nominations for Best Dance/Electronic Album. Settle was named the No. 1 dance album of the decade by Billboard. A pair of EPs – Moonlight and Ecstasy – followed.

Mae Muller – Video

MAE MULLER RELEASES “I DON’T WANT YOUR MONEY” (ACOUSTIC) AND ACCOMPANYING VIDEO TODAY WATCH/LISTEN HERE COMBINED GLOBAL STREAMS OF MULLER’S SONGS SURPASS 67 MILLION 

“Unapologetic, self-assured and fiercely independent, Mae Muller is the next big British sensation.” – PAPER

Today Mae Muller shares ‘I Don’t Want Your Money (Acoustic)’ and its accompanying video. Self-shot in isolation, the dreamlike visual plays out the lyrics to the track displayed as Mae’s thoughts, while Jimmy Napes accompanies her on the guitar. Watch the video, which premiered today on YouTube, HERE. The original single, co-written by Muller and produced by Jimmy Napes, (Sam Smith, Khalid, Alicia Keys) showcases Muller’s stripped back vocals, sharply juxtaposed with her fierce lyrics- a distinct reminder of her status as an independent young woman.

Speaking about the inspiration behind the track she explains, “I wrote ‘I Don’t Want Your Money’ just under 2 years ago now, and I’m so happy it’s finally out! I just wanted to show that there are other ways to be treated, rather than just materialistically, especially if you make your own money! I’m financially independent so you have to find other ways to impress me, I don’t need anything else apart from love and affection. Treat me with respect and we’re GOOD.” Hailed as “a clear pop sensation in the making” by Wonderland and the “new queen” by NYLON, Muller’s music pairs self-assured lyrics with strong narratives and entwined soulful pop melodies – a style that is quickly cementing the young London-based artist as a spokeswoman of her generation.

“I know what I want to say, and I know what the message is that I want to get across,” says Muller. “I want women and young girls going through hard shit to put on my songs and feel better. We’re going through this together.” Released last month, the official “I Don’t Want Your Money” video was self-shot by Muller on her iPhone at home and directed remotely by Sophie Muller (No Doubt, Selena Gomez, Rihanna, Beyoncé). Watch it HERE. Combined global streams of Muller’s song are approaching 70 million.

“I Don’t Want Your Money” comes on the heels of her early 2020 single, “Therapist,” which landed on over 45 Spotify playlists as well as Apple Music’s A-List Pop, In My Room, Future Hits and more.

WHAT THE PRESS HAS TO SAY ABOUT MAE MULLER… 

“London singer Mae Muller rules.” – The FADER

“Mae Muller’s witty and brutally honest lyrics set her apart from her peers…” – GQ   

“Sound the horns because a new queen is here.” – NYLON

“A clear pop sensation in the making…” – Wonderland

Gavin James – Boxes

GAVIN JAMES’ NEW SINGLE, “BOXES,” IS OUT TODAY   

Dublin-Based Artist Has More Than One Billion Streams Across His Catalog Download / Stream “Boxes” HERE

Watch the Lyric Video HERE

Today, Gavin James shared his new moving single, “Boxes.” The track marks the Irish artist’s first new music since his 2018 album, Only Ticket Home. “The message of the song is to not listen to anybody. Just listen to yourself and follow your dream,” explains Gavin James. “I went to an all-boys school in Dublin where if you wore the wrong shoes, you had to walk around in slippers all day. I was a bit mad at school, I wouldn’t even try a little bit. For years I had people saying I couldn’t do anything, that it was too hard to make it in music, I shouldn’t try.” James went on to prove the naysayers wrong – racking up over one billion combined global streams, selling 250,000 tickets worldwide, playing shows with Niall Horan, Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran, and securing 22 Platinum records in eight different countries. “Boxes” was executive produced by Fred Gibson (George Ezra) and co-produced by Sam Tsang (Ed Sheeran) and Ollie Green (Freya Ridings). It was mixed by 16-time GRAMMY® winner Serban Ghenea (Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes). Simplicity is at the heart of James’ appeal, as hits like “Nervous (The Ooh Song),” “22,” “Hearts On Fire” and “Always” demonstrate. On his albums Live At Whelans (2015), Bitter Pill (2016) and Only Ticket Home (2018) he has displayed a way of penning melodies that sound like they have always existed and yet are entirely new; of writing lyrics that touch on familiar subjects in ways that make them fresh. Noisey.com hailed James as “a soulful singer-songwriter sure to make you feel less alone when you’re down in the dumps” and Clash praised him as “tender, emotional…no mean talent.”
