The four-time Grammy nominated duo–Dominic ‘DJ’ Jordan and Jimmy Giannos–have produced songs for top artists including Justin Bieber, Lupe Fiasco, Ty Dolla $ign, Sam Smith and more. The Las Vegas natives have been leading figures in the production of Justin Bieber’s recent hit albums.

Revenue generated from Songs of the Season will benefit organizations supported by Inspire Change, the NFL’s social justice initiative focused on reducing barriers to opportunity in four priority areas: education, economic advancement, police and community relations, and criminal justice reform.

“While creating, we’ve always taken the approach of making what feels good and keeps us engaged during the process,” said The Audibles. “We were excited about the direction of ‘Outrageous’ from the start of the track to Sebastian Reynoso adding his unique touch. We’re ecstatic that the energy of the song matches the NFL’s ‘Songs of the Season’ initiative. One of the best rewards for us is bringing joy to people through music and we are blessed to be a part of the Inspire Change movement along with so many heroes the organization supports.”  

“‘Songs of the Season’ is an exciting initiative that allows fans an opportunity to get involved in the great work NFL players and clubs are doing to advance social justice in their local communities,” said Anna Isaacson, NFL Senior Vice President of Social Responsibility. “We are thankful for this collaboration with four-time Grammy nominated duo The Audibles and their thrilling single “Outrageous,” to support the impact being made by the Inspire Change social justice initiative.” 

Songs of the Season debuted during the 2019-2020 season and featured artists such as Blackway, Kelly Rowland, Robin Thicke, Royce Da 5’9″, Lecrae, and SASH. The series showcases musicians that will create and deliver a song to be integrated in all NFL promotions each month during the season.

Watch HERE.

Creating an undeniable summer hit, the song has dominated radio airwaves, YouTube views, and has seen remix efforts from Kranium, A Boogie, French Montana, Tory Lanez, Fivio Foreign & more. Described by Chris Brown as being “the hardest shit out right now,” “Gyalis” (a popular patois term to describe a player/playboy) peaked at #1 on Apple’s R&B/Soul charts as well as landing the #1 spot on Shazam’s Top 100 in the United States.

About Capella Grey

Every once in a while, an artist comes along and reminds listeners what music is supposed to sound like. In today’s trendy viral video dominated space, traditional R&B artists have had to play the background. Hip Hop purists have been replaced. And musically trained vocalists have to trade in their talent for a call and response anthem infectious enough to start a TikTok movement, but not Capella Grey. Attracting people with his talents, charm and great energy, Grey played around different Churches in New York City. There were even times he had premonitions of his “big break” being that of a background singer for a superstar. But one day, an unstructured freestyle would change his life and align him amongst the stars. The 26-year old Bronx native has figured out a way to creatively match today’s sound with the authentic elements of musicianship. Peaking at No.1 on Apple Music’s Top 25: New York City and No. 1 on Shazam in the United States, Grey has already begun to prove himself and why his sound is necessary. As a skilled songwriter, his words are embodied into harmony that translates to the streets, but in a way that doesn’t alienate the ladies either. “I want everyone to catch the vibe. Grab a shorty, do something,” says the young heartthrob who now has ladies crying when he’s on stage. Currently, Capella’s working on his debut Capitol Records project, due out later this year.

Flora Cash shares new single – Chronically Beautiful

RIAA platinum-certified indie-pop duo Flora Cash has today unveiled a tender and reflective new single. “Chronically Beautiful” is available now via the Swedish/American band’s own Flower Money Records at all DSPs and streaming services.

“’Chronically Beautiful’ was sparked when we were having a conversation about what it means to be beautiful,” says Flora Cash, “especially when looked at through the lens of real love. It’s not an acute, momentary perception; it’s the feeling that the person you love; the person that you waited your whole life for has a beauty that transcends any given moment and isn’t dependent on what they happen to be wearing or how their face looks that day or week or month; they’re chronically beautiful.”

Listen to “Chronically Beautiful”

“Chronically Beautiful” marks the latest new music from Flora Cash following the arrival earlier this year of the poignant new single, “Soul Mate,” available now for streaming and download. Now boasting more than 2.5M worldwide streams thus far, the track is joined by an equally powerful official music video streaming now here.

Listen To “Soul Mate”

Watch “Soul Mate”

Flora Cash was born in 2012 when Minneapolis-native Cole Randall uploaded his music to Soundcloud and caught the attention of Sweden-based Shpresa Lleshaj. The pair soon began playing music together, forming a relationship that would eventually blossom into marriage. A series of independent releases were followed by an acclaimed seven-song mini-LP, Can Summer Love Last Forever?, in March 2016. Flora Cash’s full-length debut album, Nothing Lasts Forever (And It’s Fine), arrived the following year, highlighted by the global smash single, “You’re Somebody Else.” First released in 2017, the RIAA platinum-certified single has proven a true viral phenomenon, currently boasting over 250M worldwide streams while ranking as one of Shazam’s Most Shazamed Alternative Songs in both 2019 and 2020. Hailed by Forbes as “arguably the most intriguing song on the radio this past year,” “You’re Somebody Else” was equally popular at multi-format outlets nationwide, reaching #1 at Alternative and Triple-A while also ascending to the top 5 on Billboard’s “Hot Rock Songs” chart. The track – which has also inspired countless TikTok videos in recent months – is joined by an official lyric video, now with over 133M views via YouTube alone.

As creative and engaging onstage as they are in the studio, Flora Cash lit up stages around the world with a wide range of international live dates, including tours alongside Sir Sly, Joywave, lovelytheband, Judah & the Lion, and AJR as well as festival appearances at Life is Beautiful, Bumbershoot, Austin City Limits Music Festival, Hangout Music Fest, Firefly Music Festival, and the KROQ Weenie Roast & Luau, to name but a few. The duo is currently slated to perform at Hamburg, Germany’s MS Dockville 2021, set for Friday, August 13th; additional dates will be announced soon. For updates, please visit here.

In 2020, Flora Cash released their much-anticipated sophomore album, Baby, It’s Okay, highlighted by the hit singles, “Missing Home” and “They Own This Town” and praised by Atwood Magazine for its “stunning display of stripped back, emotive songwriting, minimal introductions and impressive vocal lines are laced over lush, electro-pop instrumentals as delicate as they are organic, all delving into relational themes…a stunning second album.”

“Well-thought-out, congruent, and brilliantly detailed, Flora Cash explores themes such as post-breakup blues and coming to terms with oneself, all coated in melancholic and bittersweet vibes.” – ATWOOD MAGAZINE

“A sound that’s equal parts earthy and ethereal” – SUBSTREAM

“Bitingly bittersweet (Flora Cash’s) crystalline guitar and spine-tingling melodies give voice to that feeling of emptiness that’s recently become all-too-familiar.” – THE LINE OF BEST FIT

“Alongside artists like Billie Eilish, Maggie Rogers, and Francis and the Lights, Flora Cash is on the front lines of modern musicians redefining alt-pop by injecting their music with heartfelt conviction.” – EARMILK

Amber Van Day Releases Touch

Once again, the multitalented Amber Van Day is taking us back to the dance floor with the release of her second solo single “Touch” out via Capitol Records. Following her global Shazam success with her debut single “Kids in the Corner”, prominently featured in the opening scene of the #1-Netflix-Show “Fate: The Winx Saga”, and her anthemic collaboration “See You In Tears” with fellow singer, songwriter and creative powerhouse Ilira, the new single “Touch” has everything to become the anthem of the summer! Stream HERE.

The beat-driven tune, infectious hook and stunning vocals melt into a catchy dance pop banger, celebrating desires, lust, passion and closeness. Especially the latter, which was more or less banned in the past pandemic months and left a void in all of us. “Touch” is the perfect sequel to the self-reflecting and powerful songs Amber Van Day has released so far, adding another hit to her more dance infused productions and collaborations such as Hugel, Younotus and most recently the top UK producers Goodboys (Meduza / Piece Of My Heart). The new single is coming from the empowering perspective of a young female artist, who is in the game to stay and eventually takes what she desires.

“Writing Touch was so much fun. I don’t really write too much about love or lust but this was a really natural one for me”, Amber says about the creative process behind the new single. “We kept all of the original ideas from the first session and even the original vocals in for the final version. The production feels really nostalgic. I do just love how dark and conversational it is.”

AMBER VAN DAY × ILIRA – SEE YOU IN TEARS

RETURNS WITH FIREY NEW TRACK “SEE YOU IN TEARS” FEAT. ILIRA

LISTEN TO THE SONG HERE

Following her global Shazam success, Amber Van Day teams up with Ilira for the girl boss anthem “See You In Tears” After her debut single “Kids In The Corner” was featured in the epic opening scene of the No. 1 Netflix series “Fate: The Winx Saga” a few weeks ago, Amber Van Day has conquered the Global Shazam Charts.

Amber Van Day and Ilira, a native of Switzerland with Kosovo-Albanian roots, have a clear statement to girls who make a pass at their boyfriends.

Amber Van said, “I absolutely loved working with Ilira. We wrote a couple of songs together over lockdown and “See You In Tears” just felt like the song with the most sass! Ilira is such a great writer and I’m obsessed with her voice too. You could say we’re both a bit “out there” and not afraid of pushing boundaries. She’s a SERIOUS boss and empowers me as a female in the industry!”

Ilira continued, “I have been following Amber’s career for a long time. You could say I was a little fan girl of Amber’s. When we had the zoom session, I was in Switzerland at my parent’s house, the other co-writer was in Berlin, and Amber was in London, so it was a very international constellation. I find Amber to be just like me when it comes to perfectionism and passion. I really feel connected to her, especially character-wise. We are both ambitious women in an industry full of men, we just get each other.”
