ALMA – STAY ALL VIDEO

Hot off the triple-song pack Have U Seen Her? (Part II) release, Finnish pop punk supremo ALMA shares her “Stay All Night – Day 16: Quarantine Video”. Watch it HERE.
To celebrate the video launch, ALMA hopped on Instagram Live for a very special watch party with fans where she answered questions and ignited a vibrant back-and-forth dialogue. Meanwhile, the video continues a tradition of bold visuals from her.
 
In addition, she invited listeners to shoot their own “Stay At Home” videos for “Stay All Night” on TikTok and Instagram. Fans can relay submissions to her, and she will personally select the winning clips to comprise an official version of the video to be released.
 
Beyond clocking 1 million-plus streams, “Stay All Night” continues to garner critical acclaim from the likes of PAPERMAG, Nylon, Billboard, Clash, Wonderland and many more. The track sets the stage for the arrival of her anxiously awaited new album, Have U Seen Her?, which will be released on May 15 via Sony Music Germany/RCA Records. Pre-save the album HERE. The album boasts other fan favorites such as “Worst Behaviour” [feat. Tove Lo] and “Bad News Baby,” which has already amassed over 5.6 million global streams. Check out the full tracklisting below.
 
Punchy, punk-tinged pop flows effortlessly from the 23-year old’s fingertips. In just 3 years the highlighter-haired polymath has topped global charts with her incredible scream along hooks (who could forget earworm “I’m chasing high high high highs”) and irresistible melodies. “Chasing Highs” and “Karma” in particular reached Platinum status with “Dye My Hair” going Gold. She has written for the likes of Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, Lana Del Ray, Charli XCX, Tove Lo to name a few. It just goes to show that she’s no stranger to a hit – and certainly triumphs again with this one.
 
Everything but the stereotypical pop princess during that time ALMA has garnered fans the world over from Annie Mac and Miley Cyrus to Elton John and Dua Lipa who she worked with last summer in LA. Live she has toured extensively bringing punk and pop together in a not to be missed show that assaults all the senses. ALMA has just finished her month long tour with Tove Lo across the US.
 
A unique and talented writer ALMA is leading the charge on a new wave of female powerhouses that have something to say through their music. Engaged, forward thinking and opinionated she addresses issues from women’s rights to body positivity to sexuality to depression, drug use and anxiety head on. Notably, she recently co-wrote two songs on Miley Cyrus’ EP She Is Coming, including the female empowerment anthem ”Mother’s Daughter” and “Cattitude” ft. RuPaul as well as Charles Angel’s hit theme tune “Don’t Call Me Angel” which debuted at number thirteen on the Billboard Hot 100 chart becoming Grande’s 20th top 20 song, Cyrus’ 14th and Del Rey’s 3rd.
 
Now on the cusp of releasing her highly anticipated debut album, 2020 is set to be an exciting year for the Finnish powerhouse.

DUKE DEUCE DROPS NEW TAPE ON QUALITY CONTROL MUSIC/YRN

STREAM MEMPHIS MASSACRE 2— HERE
WATCH THE “CRUNK AINT DEAD REMIX” VIDEO FT. LIL JON, PROJECT PAT & JUICY J–HERE

Feedbacks from the public

“The fact that his record was co-signed by fellow Memphis stars, Project Pat and Juicy J, is a telling sign that Duke Deuce is truly on the rise.” – HYPEBEAST

“2020 could be Duke Deuce’s year” -CLASH

“Although it won’t be long until fans move on to the next hottest hip-hop dance, something tells us Duke Deuce has the star power and quality music to ride this moment for a whole lot longer” – COMPLEX

“Already showing the ability to stand out on the timeline, and with the support of Quality Control, Duke might just be ready to take off.” – LYRICAL LEMONADE

“He’s the best parts of every era of Memphis while being in tune with the new generation of rap.” – FLOSS MAG

Breakout Memphis Rapper

Duke Deuce drops his hotly anticipated new tape, Memphis Massacre 2 on Quality Control Music/YRN, the follow up to 2018’s Memphis Massacre. Listen to Memphis Massacre 2 HERE. Watch the video for “Crunk Ain’t Dead Remix (feat. Lil Jon, Juicy J, Project Pat)” HERE. Duke has been on a steady rise catching attention for bringing back an era of crunk music that originated in Memphis but became popular out of Atlanta.

Duke grew up around the sound and recalls the likes of Three6Mafia,8Ball, and MJG as influences as well as his father Duke Nitty who produced the Memphis classic “S.O.U.T.H. Parkway” by Gangsta Blac. Duke Nitty is also credited as a producer for few tracks on MM2. The album sees Duke navigate through diverse production and multiple styles like a veteran. An energetic listen over 12 tracks that could only be made by someone that lives and breathes this scene. It’s a true come up for a rising star in rap. Alongside his music, Duke’s unique dance moves are part of what brought him to Quality Control. After Offset saw one of Duke’s videos, he flew him out to the studio to meet and ended up signing him to QC. Gaining co-signs from the whole QC family as well as Cardi B, Duke Deuce is quickly becoming a recognizable name in the space. Late last year Duke released the video for “Crunk Ain’t Dead,” now at over 10 million views on YouTube.

Following its success, hip-hop legends Lil Jon, Juicy J, and Project Pat hopped on a remix that released just last week. Duke commented on working with them, “It was legendary working beside guys I listened to as a kid growing up in Memphis in the studio with my dad.”

Artist To Watch: NYC’s Finding Thomas Releases Debut EP

There is a new artist on the rise in NYC, and they go by the name of Finding Thomas. Founded by singer/songwriter Thomas Guttman, the band has just released its debut EP, which you can listen to now via HERE.

Distinguished like a Rolex GMT Master II, Thomas Guttman creates music which hovers above genres, marked by a refusal to be pigeonholed. Born and raised in New York City, Finding Thomas performs regularly at downtown clubs like The Standard, East Village, Rockwood Music Hall, The Bitter End, and Bowery Electric, where the fresh sound of the new never fails to surprise. With deep roots in the past, and a sensibility finely to the present, one hears the lingering roar of the previous century colliding with the madness of the current century – yet it’s still fundamentally rooted in bass, guitar, drums, and laced with a biting, lyrical poetry. 

Finding Thomas’ EP is cohesive and complex, with each track showcasing a different side of the band. Influences are as varied as they are nuanced, resulting in a timeless suite of songs. The international ensemble of musicians on the recording conjures a surprisingly straight up rock & roll record, with enticing hooks and brutally honest lyrics.

The EP opens with “Better On My Own,” which was recorded during a summer session with Israeli-based producer Eran Tabib. Featuring a tender guitar hook, paired with a tale of a heart shattered into pieces so sharp that they cut, Thomas sings with an intimacy that feels like he’s confiding in the listener.

“It was amazing to be working with Eran in Israel,” said Guttman. “We had been working together for a few years in New York, as a vocal coach. Luckily the stars aligned and we were able to set up a session very last minute in Tel-Aviv . The timing was perfect, as I had just written ‘Better On My Own’ after a rough breakup in December and the fresher the better.”

Watch the music video for “Better On My Own” via YouTube HERE.

Taken as a whole, the EP presents a fresh, personal, authentic new voice, marked by a taut, musical tension – between loose and tight rhythms, romantic and caustic tones, and past and the future sensibilities.

Blueface Releases New Single

The hottest breakout multi-platinum hip-hop superstar of 2019 and Cash Money West recording artist Blueface releases new single “Close Up” featuring Jeremih today. Get it HERE.
 
The track illuminates another side of Blueface, showcasing his diverse talents as he delivers a West Coast love song.
 
On the heels of the stratospheric success of his debut EP, Dirt Bag, Blueface is putting the finishing touches on his highly anticipated full-length album—coming very soon.
 
Blueface flipped rap upside down in 2019 with his own flow, flare, and fire. Dirt Bag yielded one banger after another with “Bleed It” [68 million Spotify streams], “Daddy” featuring Rich The Kid [49 million Spotify streams], “Bussdown” featuring Offset [14 million Spotify streams], and “Bussin” featuring Lil Pump [9.7 million Spotify streams], to name a few. As part of his recent inclusion on the XXL “Freshman Cover,” the outlet proclaimed him “one of the hottest new acts in the game” and claimed “the 22-year-old rapper has drawn comparisons to legends like E-40 and Juvenile due to the off-kilter flow that finds him rapping against the current of whatever beat he’s on.” Echoing this sentiment, Complex wrote, “his cadence—skittering and almost comical—doesn’t fit neatly into the current (or past) landscape of hip-hop. But that’s exactly what makes him so interesting.”

Niall Horan

Today, Capitol Records recording artist Niall Horan shared “Nice To Meet Ya” – the first single from his forthcoming album – and the accompanying video. A sublime piece of piano-driven pop with a soulful groove and bright hand percussion, “Nice To Meet Ya” provides the perfect backdrop to Horan’s magnetic vocals and playful yet heartfelt lyrics. He co-wrote the song with his longtime collaborator Julian Bunetta (Maroon 5, Jessie Ware), who also produced, Tobias Jesso, Jr. (Florence + the Machine, Adele) and Ruth-Anne Cunningham (John Legend, Pentatonix).

Niall Horan says, “It’s been nearly two years since I released Flicker and I can’t wait to get going again. Writing ‘Nice To Meet Ya’ in particular, was a special one for me. It gave me a chance to experiment musically and I’m so excited to finally share it with everyone.”


The official video was directed by The Young Astronauts and shot in London. Download / stream “Nice To Meet Ya” HERE. View the video HERE.

Originally from Mullingar, Ireland, Horan has sold over 80 million records and toured the globe multiple times as part of the iconic One Direction. With his full-length solo debut Flicker (Capitol Records), he achieved massive global success and widespread critical acclaim. The album entered the Billboard 200 at No. 1 in October 2017 and soon earned Platinum certification or greater in 18 countries, including the U.S. In addition to surpassing three million in worldwide album sales and nearly 3.5 billion streams worldwide, it topped the iTunes Top Albums chart in 61 countries.


Flicker included the 2x Platinum single “This Town,” which has amassed over 800 million streams worldwide, and the 3x Platinum “Slow Hands,” which shot straight to No. 1 in 44 countries, reached the top spot on Billboard’s Mainstream Top 40 and surpassed 10 million in adjusted track sales globally with 1.5 billion streams worldwide. Horan’s Flicker World Tour included sold-out dates in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Europe, Singapore, Japan, Brazil and Australia.
