Kae Tempest new music via 360 MAGAZINE

Kae Tempest – Move

Musician, author, and poet, Kae Tempest reveals a reworked version of the track “Move” from their critically acclaimed album The Line Is A Curve, which was released earlier this year. “Move (Rework)” feat. Kojey Radical is a beautifully crafted incarnation of the track—listen to the song HERE and watch the video HERE. Additional vocals from Kojey Radical perfectly complement the very recognisable voice of Kae Tempest. 
 

Kojey says of the collaboration, “Kae was a pivotal inspiration as I began my career, so finally getting the chance to work with them was a dream come true. As soon as I heard the record, I was excited. It’s pure energy with an interesting perspective, and I hope you enjoy.”
 

A fan of Kojey since his poetry days, the pair met at Later… with Jools Holland in the summer and instantly formed a bond; he was the first person Kae thought of when they decided to release the track.
 

Kae adds, “I’ve loved Kojey’s work for years. It was a beautiful experience to get together in the studio and record this version with him. I love his voice, his lyricism, his musicality, his poetics. It was a joy to have met and connected.”
 

Listen to Kae Tempest’s discuss “Move” with producer Dan Carey on Song Exploder HERE.
 

2022 has been a year of highlights for Kae Tempest, having scored their first Top 10 album in the UK and selling out shows and headlining festivals, including the prestigious Edinburgh Festival Fringe in the summer.  
 

The Line Is A Curve has also been shortlisted for the final 50 nominations for this year’s Best Art Vinyl Award, and Kae adds “The beautiful artwork for The Line Is A Curve has been shortlisted for Best Art Vinyl 2022. Thank you Harris Elliot and Wolfgang Tillmans, what a dream it was to work together – thank you for giving visual life to my album. I love what we made.”
 

With four studio albums, a novel, their first work of non-fiction (On Connection), three plays, and five collections of poetry to their name, Kae Tempest has firmly established themselves as one of the most unique, thought-provoking, and critically-acclaimed voices of their generation.

Gashi album Elevators launched via 360 MAGAZINE.

GASHI – ELEVATORS

Genre-bending artist GASHI returns with his highly-anticipated new album Elevators, out now via RCA RecordsElevators marks the acclaimed musician’s first record in two years, following the release of 1984 in 2020.

Marking the next step in his sonic evolution as an artist, as well as paving the way for what fans can expect from him next, Elevators is an expansive yet intimate body of work that examines many of GASHI’s own personal life experiences while delving into sonic influences of hip-hop, R&B, electronic, and more. Inspired by GASHI’s fear of elevators, the 14-track album finds the artist confronting his past demons and relationships, conquering his fears in order to come back stronger than ever before.

Says GASHI of the release, “when I was eight years old and living in Austria, I got stuck in an elevator for over three hours. My first album was called ‘Stairs’ because I’ve lived my life always taking the longer and harder way up. I’ve been in the game now since 2009 and I have achieved things that I never could have dreamt being possible, but I am not where I want to be yet. We all have demons and fears in life that dictate our everyday decisions, and the hardest thing to do is to silence them so that we can live the life that we are destined to live.”

“I’ve learned that life begins on the other side of fear. On the other side of conquering your demons and letting go of your past or trauma. And that’s why this album, ‘Elevators,’ will be a significant turn in my life. I am finally taking control so that I can elevate to the level of success required for me to make a difference in this world. It’s time to go inside the elevator and press up.”

His family eventually settled in Brooklyn, where he was introduced to music at a young age. GASHI absorbed a melting pot of musical influences throughout his youth, resulting in the formation of his unique sonic palette. His dynamic sound has allowed GASHI to collaborate with a wide range of talents, including Chris Brown, Travis Scott, Sting, Dua Lipa, and more. GASHI continues to defy and bend genres throughout his discography and has trophied countless global anthemic hits as well as critical acclaim.

Black Eyed Peas ninth album Elevation launched via 360 MAGAZINE.

BEP – ELEVATION

Multi-platinum and six-time GRAMMY® Award-winning, genre-bending pioneers Black Eyed Peas proudly present their anxiously awaited ninth full-length album, ELEVATION, out now. Listen to ELEVATION HERE.

The 15-track juggernaut kaleidoscopically spins together hip-hop, Latin, R&B, electronic, trap, and more into a larger-than-life vision of what pop can be in the 21st century without boundaries or borders. From the jump, uncontainable energy surges through this bold body of work. “MUEVELO” [feat. Anuel AA & Marshall Jefferson] glides along on bright keys and big handclaps offset by robotic transmissions, a command to “Move your body,” and a promise “We stay lit forever.  Elsewhere, “Dance 4 U” hinges on a slick bass line and punchy groove. The sample on “Jump” predicts the reaction perfectly, “Somebody said when you play this song all the girls will go loca. The kinetic stomp of “Firestarter” leaves flames in the wake of its incendiary vocals. The group shine brighter than ever.

Check out the full tracklisting below.

Black Eyed Peas teased out ELEVATION with “SIMPLY THE BEST” [with Brazilian global pop superstar Anitta El Alfa]. It has already generated over 2.9 million Spotify streams and 18 million YouTube views on the music video. Earning critical acclaim, mxdwn asserted, ‘Simply The Best’ acts as clear proof to fans that Black Eyed Peas remain just as capable of creating fun and energizing party tracks as they have been since their 1995 formation, and That Grape Juice fittingly summed it up as “a global affair.

Right out of the gate, “SIMPLY THE BEST” rides luminous dancefloor-ready keys towards a chantable chorus, “No it don’t get better than, better than this.” Black Eyed PeasAnitta, and El Alfa trade verses back and forth, unlocking undeniable and unbreakable chemistry. At the same time, Anitta infuses the track with Brazilian swagger, El Alfa turns up with Dominican Republic flavor, and Black Eyed Peas exude laidback Los Angeles confidence in between these global rhythms. The visual continues a tradition of larger-than-life videos for the group as well. Once again, they pull out all the stops.

ELEVATION finds Black Eyed Peas expanding the collective musical consciousness and pushing boundaries yet again (like only they can). Of course, they bring a few friends along for this rollercoaster ride. The group link up with Daddy Yankee on the reggaeton banger “BAILAR CONTIGO, while Nicky Jam ignites the funkified “GET DOWN” with fresh fire. Then, there’s “FILIPINA QUEEN” where they team up with J. Rey Soul and deliver an inimitable and irresistible bop. Nicole Scherzinger lends her powerhouse pipes to “NO ONE LOVES ME, and Black Eyed Peas and Ozuna close out the album together on the universally-resounding “L.O.V.E.”

They initially teased ELEVATION with the international smash “DON’T YOU WORRY” [with Shakira David Guetta]. It has already gathered more than 111 million Spotify streams and 113 million YouTube views on the music video. Meanwhile, it catapulted into the Top 40 at AC, in the Top 30 of the iTunes Top Pop Songs Chart, and Top 50 of the Shazam U.S. Top 200. Beyond recent acclaim from BillboardNME, and more, the group also recently performed on ABC network’s Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series in Central Park.

It is ELEVATION season for Black Eyed Peas. Join them on the next level!

ABOUT BLACK EYED PEAS:

Black Eyed Peas continue to fulfill a master plan to push the game forward devised way back in 1995. They execute each stage of this plan with focus and intent, allowing their evolution to play out in real-time over a series of game-changing albums, beginning with Behind The Front [1998] through Bridging The Gap [2000], Elephunk [2003], Monkey Business [2005], The E.N.D. [2009], The Beginning[2010], Masters of the Sun, Vol. 1 [2018], and, most recently TRANSLATION[2020]. Along the way, co-founders will.i.amApl.de.Ap, and Taboo have set music industry records that will probably never be exceeded, moved north of 35 million albums and 120 million singles, gathered six GRAMMY® Awards, and headlined the Super Bowl, the World Cup, and F1 races. The multi-platinum group launched the comeback of the decade after eight years of dormancy. The future matters the most to these trailblazers, which brings us to their 2022 blockbuster ninth full-length, Elevation [Epic Records]. The 15-track opus represents another logical step and the dawn of a new phase, boasting the smash “DON’T YOU WORRY” [feat. Shakira David Guetta] and collabs with Daddy YankeeNicky JamAnuel AA, OzunaNicole Scherzinger, and more.

About the record, will.i.am comments, “We were behind the front, then we bridged the gap. We rode an elephant’s back to realize the industry was full of monkey business. That was the end, but the end is new beginnings. Becoming masters of the sun, mastering the industry, we realized we had to have translation in this complex world. But we be falling up, and never falling down. Black Eyed Peas is known for elevation. This is the next stage for us, reaching higher.”

Mariah the Scientist new song via 360 MAGAZINE.

Mariah the Scientist – Bout Mine

Atlanta-based R&B singer-songwriter Mariah the Scientist releases her new single and accompanying video for, “Bout Mine.”

Listen/watch HERE.

Released on October 28th, “Bout Mine” is a sultry, laid-back track that chronicles Mariah yearning for clarity in a complicated situationship. Her silky vocals pleading to an unnamed lover “Feelin’ lost, feelin’ nervous and I know I don’t deserve this/ What’s it cost? ‘Cause I want you back, babe, goin’ sad lately,” along with relaxed synths embodies the effortlessly cool honesty that Mariah is praised for. The accompanying video, directed by Cam Busby & Mariah The Scientist, sees Mariah set out for revenge. The visualizer quickly escalates as she confronts the man that wronged her.

On “Bout Mine,” Mariah shares, “See, love is a pretty strong word. You don’t say it if you don’t mean it. You don’t play with it. You live for it. But there’s a thin line between love and loyalty, and loyalty… I’ll die for.”

“Bout Mine” follows the March 2022 release of Mariah The Scientist’s EP Buckles Laboratories Presents: The Intermission. The four-song release, like all of Mariah’s music, shows her innate ability to craft catchy-yet-relatable songs about the complicated nature of modern love. The EP has over 13 million streams, contributing to Mariah’s impressive 155.5 million worldwide streams and near 52 million video views. Her single “Spread Thin” off of the latest EP is currently gaining viral momentum, garnering over 5 million streams in the last month alone. Watch the “Spread Thin” video HERE.

Earlier this year, Mariah embarked on her headlining “The Experimental Tour,” playing renowned venues such as New York City’s Webster Hall as well as international venues across Europe. Additionally, she performed sets at several major festivals including Coachella, Lollapalooza, Rolling Loud Toronto, and more. Beginning on November 11th, she will join Rod Wave on his “Beautiful Mind Tour,” hitting major arenas across the US, before concluding on December 21st at Seattle’s Climate Pledge Arena.

ABOUT MARIAH THE SCIENTIST:

Atlanta R&B singer/songwriter Mariah the Scientist arrived on the scene in 2018 with her indelible debut project To Die For, and then signed to RCA Records to release a new project, titled Master. Mariah the Scientist’s preparing to open herself up to more people than ever before– and maybe she’ll assist listeners in discovering themselves in the process, too.

Born and raised in Atlanta on a steady diet of classic R&B ranging from The Temptations to Boyz II Men, Mariah graduated high school a year early and eventually went to college in New York City with her then-boyfriend — but she quickly found that higher education didn’t quite fit her personality traits: “I’m an introvert, so I didn’t enjoy the college experience.” After that relationship dissolved, Mariah met someone new who shared an interest in the wavy, hard-to-define music of R&B scion Frank Ocean.

Encouraged by her peers’ enthusiasm Mariah began to work on more music and eventually put out “To Die For” as a project in January of 2018. Her first single “Beetlejuice” is the perfect introduction to the Mariah the Scientist experience– a swirling, lovely concoction drawing equally from Ocean’s genre agnosticism, OutKast’s slow-drip hip-hop approach, and the diaristic openness of SZA. After releasing her first single “Beetlejuice” Mariah went on to release her first debut project, Master with RCA Records. She has since gone on to release additional singles and just released her second project RY RY World on 7/9/21. It debuted #2 on Apple Music’s R&B album chart. It received recognition from Cardi B, Lil Baby, Demi Lovato, Latto and more.

Sam Smith released news song Gloria via 360 MAGAZINE.

SAM SMITH – GLORIA

Multi-Platinum, GRAMMY®, BRIT, Golden Globe and Oscar winning artist/songwriter Sam Smith will release Gloria, their fourth studio album, on January 27, 2023 via Capitol Records. Made with longtime collaborators Jimmy Napes, Stargate and Max Martin stablemate ILYA, Gloria is not only a creative revelation but something of a personal revolution for the celebrated artist. Lyrically, the subjects dive deep and wide, into contemporary narratives around sex, lies, passion, self-expression and imperfection.

Sam Smith says, “It feels like emotional, sexual and spiritual liberation. It was beautiful, with this album, to sing freely again. Oddly, it feels like my first-ever record. And it feels like a coming of age.”

Recorded in Jamaica, Los Angeles and London, Gloria is the dazzling, sumptuous, sophisticated, unexpected and at times thrilling, edgy sound of Sam’s creative heart today. The sound of constricting shackles crashing to the floor, of boundaries joyfully breached, of a still-searching talent discovering what it means to be truly free.

The album is now available for pre-order HERE. Fans who pre-order the digital edition of Gloria will instantly receive the chart-topping lead single, “Unholy” ft. Kim Petras plus “Love Me More.”

Since its release last month, “Unholy” has become a global smash, amassing over 300 million combined global streams. The single has already captured the No. 1 spot on three Billboard charts – Global 200, Streaming Songs and Digital Song Sales – and topped the U.S. Shazam chart. “Unholy” has spent three consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the UK Official Singles Chart, marking Sam’s eighth song to top the tally. The track also hit No. 1 worldwide on Apple Music and Spotify. Within the first 24 hours of release, the song ranked among the Top 10 Spotify debuts of all time. “Unholy” gave Universal Music Group its biggest streaming debut of 2022. TikTok creations are averaging 100,000 daily.

The official video for “Unholy” follows a john who ducks out on his wife and sneaks off to his favorite sex club cabaret, only to find his guilty pleasures revealed in a very public manner. It was directed by Floria Sigismondi (The Runaways film, David Bowie, Christina Aguilera) and choreographed by French dance collective (LA)HORDE. Look for cameos by Gottmik and Violet Chachki from “RuPaul’s Drag Race” and porn star Paddy O’Brian. Watch “Unholy” HERE.

Billboard observed, “‘Unholy’…not only unites two of the most prominent artists in the past decade of queer pop music, but does so without sonic reservation…a grinding, amorous new single.” Rolling Stone said, “Girls, gays, theys: this one is for you.” V Magazine praised the track as “blazing, wild, feral.” NYLON noted, “Sam Smith and Kim Petras’ hedonistic club banger is finally here – and it is criminally catchy.”

Gloria builds on the 35 million adjusted album sales, 250 million single sales and the 45 billion career streams Sam has amassed with the global success of their previous three studio albums, In the Lonely Hour, The Thrill of It All and Love Goes.

A four-time GRAMMY® winner, Sam also holds two Guinness World Records – for the most consecutive weeks in the U.K .Top 10 Album Chart (for their 2014 debut, In The Lonely Hour) and for having the first James Bond Theme to reach No.1 on the U.K. charts (for the Oscar and Golden Globe winning “Writing’s on the Wall”). With the release of Gloria in January and an exciting live plot in motion, it’s going to be an undeniable 2023 for Sam.

Elle King On Come Get Your Wife

Elle King Beckons Brazenly on Come Get Your Wife, Album Slated for Jan. 27 Release

12 Slices of Life, Truth + Laughter Available For Pre-Order Oct. 21. Watch The Album Trailer Here

Elle King can do many things, ranging from exuberant alternative/punk to soul pop. She’s also been a compelling presence in country music; winning both Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music Awards and breaking the 30 year old, glass-ceiling record for women on the radio charts with the lead single “Drunk (And I Don’t Want To Go Home).”  She’s collaborated with Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert, Ashley McBryde and been on tour with Chris Stapleton for the better part of 2022; it’s been an unbridled love fest with Nashville’s music community.

Now she makes it country music official with Come Get Your Wife, a dozen glorious tracks that run a gauntlet of styles and attitudes leaving King’s roots showing.  See album trailer here: https://ek.lnk.to/CGYWTrailer. Set for release on Jan. 27, the quadruple Grammy nominee co-produced the album with award winning songwriter Ross Copperman and the result is a collection that moves through all the topics. From being a hot mess, a glorious excess and a woman coming into her own, King has created a very real, small-town frayed at the edges but solid at core missal.

“Even the album title, it comes from something some asshole said to my partner one night. Something thrown off in a bar, intended to put me in my place… and he probably didn’t think twice about it.  But I did.”

Indeed, she did. Elle King, singular, swaggering, sardonic, is a musically and personally fearless woman.WithCome Get Your Wife, she sharpens her gaze, digs into her roots, puts her banjo front and center and creates a record that’s as alive and electric as she is. Taking all the pieces – the rock, soul, (blue)grass and country that she loves – she’s made an album that demands your attention, then delivers on all cylinders.

“There’s something about how you put the pieces together,” King offers of her first true country project. “This whole album is a crazy quilt of all sorts of moments and things that might not seem to go together, but because they’re me, they do. It’s very Southern Ohio, very who we are – and very much a lot of people who are just like me, because I know they’re out there.”

Jordan Ward & Joony "IDC" via 360 MAGAZINE

JORDAN WARD × JOONY

RISING NEWCOMERS JORDAN WARD & JOONY SAY “IDC” IN NEW SINGLE

Jordan Ward To Perform At Soho Warehouse in Los Angeles Next Week

Buzzy R&B tastemakers Jordan Ward (ARTium Recordings/Interscope Records) & Joony leap into their next era with today’s release of the smooth new single, “IDC”. The two collab on the floating, lo-fi melodic track as they trade carefree verses about letting their ex’s exit their lives. Lo-fi also colors the song’s official music video, in which the pair comically run into their exes but get the last laugh as they run through New York City. 

Watch the full video HERE.

“IDC” builds on the momentum that Jordan scored with last year’s Remain Calm EP and the millions of streams it produced. The five-track collection put the St. Louis native’s versatility on full display, swapping from rap bars on “Steph” to the R&B gem “Couscous.” Storied publications took notice, with Billboard highlighting the latter track as “a deliciously layered deep cut,” while HotNewHipHop praised the EP overall as a “short but very sweet” effort. Soon after the EP’s release, Jordan gifted fans his Lil Baby Doc, a six-minute documentary that reveals an intimate look at Jordan’s creative process in the studio while enjoying life with his friends. Watch HERE. Plus, as part of the single’s release celebration, Jordan will perform a showcase at the exclusive Soho Warehouse in Los Angeles on Oct. 10. 

As he steps his new era, Jordan Ward continues to draw acclaim as one of R&B’s rising stars. While his 2017 debut EP, A Peak at the Summit, made noise, his clear breakthrough came with his 2019 project, Valley Hopefuls. It was propelled by his single “Okok (Hibachi)” and “Sandiego,” which was produced by singer Arin Ray and music producer heavyweight No ID. Now, with more than 25 million streams and counting, Ward’s silky croons and elevated songwriting pen are sharper than ever and ready to launch him to even greater heights in the R&B realm.

Establishing himself through a series of EPs and full-length albums, Joony amassed a substantial audience before his placement on Brent Faiyaz‘s chart-topping album, Wasteland. Joony’s verse on “FYTB” was a standout moment on the project and marked Joony’s first entry on the Billboard Hot 100. The poignant record came on the heels of his critically acclaimed album, Pretty In Black. After the release of Pretty In Black (Deluxe), the 22-year-old rapper asserted himself in 2022’s album of the year consideration.

Chace's New Single "MARIYA" via 360 MAGAZINE

CHACE – MARIYA

CHINA’S BIGGEST DANCE ARTIST CHACE RELEASES NEW SINGLE/VIDEO “MARIYA”

LISTEN HERE WATCH HERE

Today Chinese electronic producer/singer-songwriter, Chace releases the brooding track “Mariya” off his forthcoming debut album. “Mariya” comes with an accompanying eerie visual
“Mariya” continues to tease the overall mysterious tone of the album following the previous single
In My Head.” It contains a mood rendering and psychedelic inducing tonality. On “Mariya” Chace does it all. He arranged the music, wrote the lyrics, and sings and producers on it.

The whole song shows the charm of “Mariya” from the central perspective of the suitor seen in the video. The deep and magnetic voice creates an empty and blurred atmosphere with the bouncing light.

With each track, Chace continues to pave his way as one of the forerunners of a forward-thinking generation of artists in Asia melding Western influences with their own sounds. A self-taught producer and songwriter, he has collaborated with TchamiYellow Claw, and Moksi. When he was 17 years old, he became the first Chinese DJ to play Belgium’s iconic Tomorrowland festival in 2017. Since releasing his debut EP DestinationChace’s music: a delirious mix of evocative house, UK garage, and pop has earned him praise from tastemakers across the world. Billboard dubbed him a “pop and dance music prodigy,” COMPLEX called him a “Rapidly rising producer,” and VICE stated that he’s “The face of China’s rising EDM scene.” In 2021, DJ Mag China named him producer of the year.
