The FunkLabb × Myah Marie

Brooklyn-based producers/songwriters The FunkLabb Ed Lawson and Wes Davis have teamed up once again with singer, songwriter, and background vocalist Myah Marie for their newest single, Late To The Party, which highlights Myahs silky vocals over a driving pop beat of soaring strings and synths. With its clever play on words, the song lyrically speaks to being the last to know the truth about someone and the realization that you ultimately deserve better. We wanted to hit a little different this time with Late To The Party. It’s a ballad style melody but still a funky, danceable track, shared by The FunkLabb. It’s our third single with Myah and we are just getting started!

Late To The Party was the first collaboration I did with The FunkLabb! Immediately I was like oh, these guys are dope, adds Myah who is a lyricist and background vocalist behind songs from many top artists such as Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, and Avicii, among others. She continues, It’s about how sometimes we don’t know someone sucks until we know and we feel completely late to the party, like showing up to a party everyone else was invited to but you. But you know what? Still eat the cake.

Late To The Party follows The FunkLabbs previously released singles with Myah Marie, Mama Said No and Pretty Please ft. Ruba, Young Dinero Banks, and Sarina The Violin Diva, which were accompanied by a pair of intergalactic music videos following Myah flirting with danger before being abducted by aliens and plotting her means for escape.

Funk suggests more than a sound. It implies a whole lot of attitude, slick swagger, and serious soul and you feel it just as much as you hear it. The FunkLabb cooks up music in this spirit as they uncork a timeless groove ignited by fresh fire. Since meeting nearly three decades ago crafting music behind the scenes for everyone from legends such as The Notorious B.I.G. and Will Smith to R&B favorites Sharissa and Allure, The FunkLabb now step into the spotlight. Feeling like something was missing from music, The FunkLabb collectively incorporate elements from their past catalog and eclectic taste as they aim to bring back the excellence and musicality needed to remind listeners of how a song makes you feel while evolving their collaboration into an artist development hub with various artists leaning on their expertise, wisdom, guidance, and studio prowess. Ultimately, The FunkLabb represents the culmination of a lifetime dedicated to music and a bold new chapter.

October – Selena Gomez – ELLE Canada

KO MÉDIA REVEALS A FORWARD-LOOKING  SEPTEMBER ISSUE OF ELLE CANADA

KO Média is excited to unveil the October issue of ELLE Canada featuring Selena Gomez. The multi-hyphenate star opens up about her mental illness, shooting her new Hulu show with Steve Martin and releasing her first record in Spanish. “I focused so hard on making sure the language I was speaking — and the way I was speaking it — was authentic,” she says in the candid interview. “I wanted it to exude love. I wanted it to talk about pain but in a way that was confident. There is a song about girls saying goodbye to things that aren’t good for us.” One thing Gomez has said goodbye to is her access to Instagram. “I suffer from mental illness, and [social media] just wasn’t adding anything to my life,” she says, adding that once she gave it up, “I felt like I was suddenly able to be so present.”

Other stories of self-care and self-discovery in this issue include Canadian Grammy-winning artist Alessia Cara finding stability as her star continues to rise; Nesta Cooper on coming into her own opposite Jason Momoa in the second season of See; and Mohawk actor Devery Jacobs’ experience working on an Indigenous set and being an activist in her community. Rounding out the bunch is Jonathan Van Ness who, with six seasons of Queer Eye behind them, is now focused on feeding their own well-being, inside and out.

For readers who need some me time, we offer up Canada’s best spas to visit this fall, whether you want a full-body scrub en plein air in B.C. or a lakefront Nordic spa experience in Nova Scotia. Plus, the magazine looks at why dawn is the new time to get things done and how to properly care for sensitive or irritated skin (just in time for winter!).

In fashion, this edition is all about looking back — on the overt tackiness of the early-aughts (which is making a comeback for a surprising reason); the 40-year legacy of Max Mara’s 101801 coat; and the coming-together of two friends to design Markoo’s cool, effortless aesthetic.

And we get serious, diving into the history (and current reality) of medical misogyny, dissecting the downfall of the girl boss and what it says about women in power, and exploring the healing effect of restorative tattooing.

Ending on a lighter note, this issue has everything from forest-inspired fragrances and the next generation of Canadian winemakers to dinner party glow-ups and a mother-daughter road trip.

The October issue of ELLE Canada will hit stands and Apple News+ on October 20, 2021.

Selena Gomez × Camilo – 999

SELENA GOMEZ AND CAMILO RELEASE NEW VIDEO AND SINGLE 999

Listen to 999 HERE

Global recording artist, actress and executive producer Selena Gomez has had a year of undeniable career milestones. With the release of her first all-Spanish language EP, REVELACIÓN, Selena became the first woman to debut No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart since 2017 and garnered the highest debut by a Female Solo Act since 2016. The standout track Baila Conmigo with Latin urban phenomenon Rauw Alejandro also reigned at radio, topping Billboard’s Latin Airplay, Latin Pop Airplay and Latin Rhythm Airplay charts, simultaneously.

Today multi-platinum artist Selena Gomez and Colombian Latin GRAMMY winner Camilo release a soulful, pop track, 999, via Interscope Records.

The track was produced by GRAMMY and Latin GRAMMY Award winner Edgar Barrera along with A.C. and Camilo. About her collaboration with Camilo, Selena expressed, Camilo is a fantastic songwriter and singer who proudly wears his heart on his sleeve which is something we connected on immediately. I couldn’t have been more excited to collaborate with him. About his first collaboration with Gomez, Camilo added, Working with Selena Gomez is a tremendous honor and a huge moment in my career. From the beginning, 999 was written based on the color of her voice, and it wouldn’t have existed if it wasn’t for the dream of this collaboration. I’m very excited and it means so much to me to have this beautiful song, with an artist whom I respect and have followed for so long.

Directed by Sophie Muller, the video was shot in Los Angeles, CA. Coinciding with the contagious rhythm of the track, its video features both Gomez and Camilo in a visually natural setting, which coincides with the track’s simple and organic manner. Selena’s and Camilo’s performance is timeless and natural, showing a true and real connection when interpreting the lyrics, decorated by dreamy and natural settings.

Receiving unanimous acclaim for her long-awaited return to Latin music, Selena Gomez released her first Spanish-language EP, REVELACIÓN earlier this year. The collection of 7 tracks, featuring collaborations with Latin GRAMMY nominee and urban phenomenon Rauw Alejandro and multi-platinum urban artist Myke Towers, among others, was executive produced by multiple Latin GRAMMY Award-winner Tainy [Bad Bunny, J Balvin] and NEON16.

NALIYA – ROLLER COASTER

Emerging as a dynamic pop presence with widespread critical acclaim, buzzing artist, producer, and songwriter Naliya shares a new single Roller Coaster. Once again, her smooth delivery, quotable lyrics, and elite beat-making shine. The track affirms her unpredictable approach with hypnotic verses before dropping into another massive chorus. As always, she invites audiences along for the ride on Roller Coaster.

Right out of the gate, “Handshakes” gathered over 500,000 streams to date and picked up critical acclaim. The Honey Pop raved, “she blew our minds with her first single ‘Handshakes’, and went on to promise, “You’re going to listen to it non-stop, it’s guaranteed.” EDM.com described it as “a dreamy inaugural release,” and A1234 called it a “buoyantly simple yet elegant track that uses a sparse production to bring out the emotive nature of the lyrics, drawing us into her soundscape and way of thinking.” Sheesh Media praised “Handshakes” as a “tender and sentimental banger” and “filled to the brim with electronically filtered vocals and near-lullaby vibes.

Naliya is putting the finishing touches on her forthcoming debut EP—coming soon. She continues to assert herself as an artist-to-watch this year. Stay tuned for more!

ABOUT NALIYA

Naliya personally touches every element of her music. Behind a desk running Ableton Live by herself, she’ll conjure up a beat before picking up a pen to write lyrics and finally grabbing a microphone to bring the production and words to life. Raised between Canada and France, the Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, and producer architects an unfiltered and undeniable take on pop warmed by handcrafted beats and lyrics so intimate they could be a DM.

During a Shark Tank-style Instagram Live hosted by powerhouse songwriter J Kash (Maroon 5, Charlie Puth, Selena Gomez), she shared a composition and landed a deal. With Kash in her corner, she co-wrote Jason Derulo’s “Lifestyle” (feat. Adam Levine) and Tate McRae’s “Rubberband.” After amassing nearly 6 million streams independently and quietly cooking up songs for industry heavyweights, she formally introduces herself on a series of 2021 singles and her forthcoming debut EP to be released via Immersive / Sandlot / Interscope Records.

ALICE LONGYU GAO REMIXES “MOVE IT TO THE SIDE”

John-Robert releases a new remix to stand out track “Move It To The Side” by Alice Longyu Gao, today via Warner Records. You can listen to the new remix HERE. You can watch the visualizer HERE.

A fan favorite, “Move It To The Side” was originally released earlier this year on John-Robert’s ‘Healthy Baby Boy, Pt 1’ EP. Alice’s “Softboy Dancing In the Klurb Flip” integrates elements of John-Robert’s alluring melancholy-melody with a jacked up tempo and her recognizable, exaggerated pop lyricism. The result is a track unique to Alice’s own personal and flamboyant style, as she serves up her second remixer credit to date. Alice’s new take on the track demonstrates her manifestation of a confident and care-free persona that doesn’t get wound up with anxieties and pressures of the modern dating scene and sees her flip the script on John-Robert’s original.

About the remix, John-Robert says, “As a musician it’s inspiring when you subconsciously have a formula for your writing process and then an artist comes along and breaks every one of those rules in a fresh and exciting way. I admire Alice because she’s a smart, self-assured badass, unapologetic with her production, lyrics, visuals, thoughts and art. I’m eternally grateful that she has blessed me with this version of ‘Move It To The Side.’”

Alice Longyu Gao adds, “I am usually the dumb bitch. It takes me a second to fancy someone and it takes me forever to stop trying to get them to like me. So I was really visioning myself being a bad gal in this remix—calling him the ‘emotional one,’ cuz I met a lot of heterosexual white bros who love to gaslight and guilt trip women, when in fact they are just too insecure to care. I am balling with my cash, having fun and ghost his text, visioning him being all upset. This remix is my revenge. I chopped John-Robert’s original vocals in a hard-core way so the remix shares a new perspective. Also, it won’t be an ‘Alice Longyu Gao’ piece of music if the beat doesn’t switch like 100 times. So yeah, this remix will drive you crazy on the dance floor.”

At age 16, John-Robert was invited out to Los Angeles by mega-producer Ricky Reed who’s described him as “a transcendent, once-in-a-generation singer and songwriter.” The now 20-year-old from Edinburg, VA who is signed to Reed’s Nice Life Recording Company and Warner Records continues to build-upon his budding musical career, most recently releasing his Healthy Baby Boy, Pt. 1 earlier this year. The songs on the EP illustrate real life coming of age stories and detail the challenges that come from leaving your support system in small town behind to chase your dreams. He’s collaborated with the likes of Alessia Cara, Zack Sekoff, Kathleen and Nate Merceau, and attracted industry praise from SPINAmerican SongwriterOnes To WatchIdolatorEARMILK and more.

As the only child from a conservative family, coming to America alone at the age of 17 was her chance, Alice Longyu Gao is a boundary pushing pop artist with a knack for making positive social change through her work. With co-signs from industry heavyweights like Lady Gaga, The Weeknd and Selena Gomez, as well as features in NME i-D, PAPER Magazine, Billboard, The FADER and V Magazine, Longyu Gao has gained recognition for her ability to blend hyper-energetic, avant-garde pop beats with interpretive, kaleidoscopic visuals. Beyond the music, Longyu Gao is a passionate activist for human rights with a longstanding track record of work supporting issues focusing on LGBTQ+ justice, eating disorder recovery, sustainability in fashion and food, and public-funded art education for underprivileged minority groups.

KAH-LO – THE ARRIVAL EP

Emerging as a global phenomenon with hundreds of millions of streams and glowing critical praise, GRAMMY® Award-nominated songstress Kah-Lo unleashes her solo debut, The Arrival EP, today.

Get it here via Epic Records.

The five-track project spotlights Nigerian-born, New York City-bred Kah-Lo’s seamless fusion of wild rhythms, dancefloor-ready beats, and skyscraping hooks. The single “Fire” ignites this hybrid. Neon keys bounce underneath her slick verses before she drops the red-hot hook, “I look so fire bitch, I am the match.” On the high energy “Commandments,” she issues one important commandment for the club for another between a chanting chorus. On the finale “Candy,” airy wah guitar dissolves into a head-nodding beat punctuated by old school beeper chirps and a thick bassline. Her undeniable attitude carries another bold chorus.

Back in 2016, Kah-Lo linked up with Riton for the breakout “Rinse & Repeat.” The international anthem not only amassed 65.3 million Spotify streams, but it also picked up a GRAMMY® Award nomination in the category of “Best Dance Recording. Loaded with bangers, they dropped Foreign Ororo highlighted by “Ginger” and “Fake I.D.”—which notched 94.2 million Spotify streams. Along the way, she collaborated with everyone from Idris Elba to Destructo and earned acclaim from Rolling StoneHYPEBEASTi-D, NME, and more.

Now, she lands at the forefront of the culture with The Arrival and more to come.

About Julia Michaels

Over the past few years, no songwriter has had more of an impact on reshaping pop music than Grammy® Award-nominated and multi platinum-selling artist Julia Michaels, whose razor-sharp perspective on love, loss, and the wide spectrum of the human experience has deservedly catapulted her to the forefront of her industry. Lauded for her work on hit singles by artists like Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Niall Horan, Dua Lipa, Janelle Monáe, Shawn Mendes, P!NK, Ed Sheeran, Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani, Hailee Steinfeld, The Chicks, Keith Urban, Jessie Ware, and more, Julia has spent the last decade honing her craft and delivering fans some of the most evocative music of a generation.

In 2017, Julia embarked on a solo career, separate from her work synthesizing the stories of the stars around her, with her 5x-platinum selling debut single “Issues.” A year later, her peers recognized her stunning work with Grammy® Award nominations for “Best New Artist” and “Song of the Year.” Committing to her solo work, Julia released a series of critically acclaimed EPs, including 2017’s fan-favorite Nervous System and 2019’s critically acclaimed Inner Monologue Part 1 and Inner Monologue Part 2. She also embarked on The Inner Monologue Tour, which marked her first-ever headline tour throughout the U.S. following an enviable run touring the world with an incredible array of artists, including Maroon 5, Keith Urban, Shawn Mendes, Niall Horan, and P!NK.

To date, Julia has notched 25 Billboard Hot 100 entries as a songwriter, including two number 1’s for Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” and Selena Gomez’s “Lose You to Love Me,” in addition to four top 10 hits, including her debut single “Issues.” Of those 25, she has charted four Hot 100 entries as a recording artist including “Issues,” “I Miss You,” “Coming Home” and “If the World Was Ending,” for which she received her third Grammy® Award nomination in the category of “Song Of The Year” with collaborator JP Saxe.

“Writing this song with the person I love helped me realize that I could write a beautiful song about love without deriving it from toxicity,” says Julia.  “Shooting the music video was incredibly vulnerable for me, because when I wrote the song, I associated it with a significant other. When I made the music video, however, director Blythe Thomas made a wall of mirrors, and it forced me to sing these words to myself. I don’t think I’ve ever been that kind to myself, and that scared me. All that emotion in that video is incredibly real. If this process has taught me anything, it’s that sometimes we’re not as kind to ourselves as we should be. I’m grateful to have experienced this moment, and I hope fans resonate with this song and video in a special way like I did.” – Julia Michaels
