Sam Fscher – Hopeless Romantic

Following the release of his duet with Demi Lovato on ‘What Other People Say’, hit single ‘This City’ and recent fan track ‘Simple’, Sam Fischer has shared his emotional and uplifting new single ‘Hopeless Romantic’, available now through Sony Music UK/RCA Records. Check it out HERE.

In true Sam style, ‘Hopeless Romantic’ wears its heart on its sleeve and discusses the struggles Sam has faced as an artist and romanticizes what every-day life should be. While the song is lyrically deep and emotional, musically it is a melodic and uplifting pop song that builds to a catchy and bold chorus. Sam says; “There have been times over the past 2 years where I really felt like I’d never get to do the things I’d always dreamed about doing as an artist. With every virtual performance that ended with a deep silence from my furniture, it just started making me really sad, and at the same time guilty, because I wasn’t appreciating what I have at all. I was actively refusing to accept the reality and instead romanticizing a version of life that just simply didn’t exist. That’s really what Hopeless Romantic is about. Though I will say, having just come off of my first headline tour, where I got to meet my fans for the first time, who are the people who give me this life, I’m in a much better place.”

Sam’s debut single ‘This City’ currently stands at over 500 million worldwide streams and stayed in the UK Top 20 for 11 weeks. The track is also double platinum in Australia, platinum in the UK and Gold in the US, New Zealand and Switzerland. Sam also performed the track on US TV, including The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Late Late Show With James Corden. He recently completed his first live tour in the UK, including a packed out London Garage performance and will be bringing the tour to the US in January 2022.

Australian born Sam Fischer first introduced himself with his Not A Hobby EP and has achieved incredible and well deserved attention through his soulful voice and heartfelt lyrics. Touring North America with his friend Lewis Capaldi, he wowed crowds with his buoyant personality and pure love and talent for song-writing. Now based in LA, he not only has received acclaim for his own work, but he continues to solidify his spot as one of the hottest current writers, having worked with global pop superstars including Ciara, Lennon Stella, Louis Tomlinson, Elle King, Jessie J, Virginia To Vegas and many more.

However, it hasn’t all been plain sailing for Sam, who endured his own heartache to achieve his dreams. With the promise of a recording contract in the bag, he set off to LA only for the deal to be pulled away. After months of couch-surfing, he finally and deservedly received his break with This City and project Homework, which has been just the amazing start of an exciting new chapter in Sam’s career.

12AM – After Midnight

12AM releases new AFTER MIDNIGHT EP via Sony Music Entertainment in Canada. “VOICES”; featuring the Hxliday out now. “12AM has an innate ability to draft big choruses which is why more and more artists are tapping in to use his melodic talents.” LYRICAL LEMONADE. “It seems like everyone is trying to glorify the turn up right now, and 12AM definitely does that.” HIP HOP CANADA.

LA-by-way-of-Toronto artist 12AM redefines his sound and enters a new era on After Midnight. The EP arrives with the video for the new single Voicesfeaturing Motown rapper The Hxliday, out now via Sony Music Entertainment Canada. 360 Magazine is pleased to see this new release as it associates with Sony Music.

In the “Voices” video, directed by Logan Meis (Polo G, The Kid Laroi, Trippie Redd, Tyla Yaweh), the viewer is invited into the minds of 12AM and The Hxliday, both fighting against the darkest parts of their psyche and inner turmoil. With their thoughts tearing them apart, symbols of the past make their way in the form of angels, demons, and physical scars. They seem numb to the pain and reach a point where they might just be enjoying it. Each scene gets more and more violent as the story comes to a final climax.

On his major-label debut, the rising act’s pain and passion shine through as he forges a connection with his listeners worldwide. Introducing a bold sound, the lyrics equally shed light on his challenging upbringing and showcase his hard-won elevated lifestyle. Tapping Jutes, Pyrex (Whippa), and The Hxliday for the new project, 12AM continues to add to his impressive list of collaborators which includes 24kGoldn, Iann Dior, Jez Dior, Trevor Daniel, among others. Now sitting on top of over 26 million total streams, he appears on Spotify’s coveted New Music Friday and teardrop playlists, as well as Post Malone’s post’s playlist on the platform.

12AM states, “This music is what I’ve created throughout my time moving to LA from Canada. It’s a new sound and a new lane. All the hardships I’ve gone through over the last few years, I’m surprised I even got to this point because it was a really long road to get here. It was something that seemed impossible to put together and have be released, but itߣs coming out now and Iߣm really proud of it.”

The production on After Midnight illustrates stark differences from 12AM’s first album, Afterparty. Working with producers Evan Gartner (Iann Dior, Jutes, MASN) and Mason Sacks (Dominic Fike, Lil Tecca), the new EP has a dark and nocturnal trap palette that lives up to 12AM’s name. He states “it’s the type of music you like to play or listen to after midnight super happy, energetic, depressed and alone or with somebody getting down…I wanted to embody every feeling you get After Midnight, life is usually the most real at that time.”

After Midnight gives us a deeper look into the world 12AM has navigated and created for himself. His endless hustle, effortless bravado, and all-or-nothing attitude have certainly earned his place in the game. The EP’s opener “Cold Season” sets the scene around 12AM’s life before moving to LA, living in the frigid cold of Canada with an inescapable feeling of isolation. For most of his life, he was responsible for taking care of his sick mother, until he tragically lost her in his teens. “If I could see my momma one more time Iߣd tell her that I’m all good,” he sings on the track, “I’d be lying but it’s all good…” At a young age, he struggled to financially support himself alone and eventually faced homelessness. Hit with these insurmountable burdens, he bottled up his emotions and channeled what he could in his writing. “Voices” paints a picture of the aftermath, torn emotions, and a heavy guard up due to inner child wounds. The lyrics describe the fallout of heartbreak, one day having the support of a loved one and left for dead the next. With distant distorted and melancholic piano strings, The Hxliday joins in seamlessly on the back half of the track with a striking feature that matches 12AMߣs energy. Paired with a booming 808 and stuttering high hats, alongside the duoߣs unmatched flow, the song explodes into an anthem about love and loss. The EP isnߣt all moody bangers though “come over” is a playful, sultry groove with a “Netflix & Chill” kind of vibe that garnered success on TikTok over the summer, including a post from influencer Sommer Ray who joined in on the dance trend. Other tracks on the EP include “Lights” featuring Pyrex (Whippa) and “Ski Mask.”

With more music on the horizon, the future looks incredibly bright and 12AM’s repertoire is only at its inception. Prolific in his dexterity, 12AM is consistently writing for other artists as well as himself. He can be seen frequently working with Elijah Woods and Omer Fedi (Kid Laroi “Without You,” 24kGoldn & Iann Dior “Mood,” and Lil Nas X “Montero”). Touring accolades include shows with Internet Money, Iann Dior, Jez Dior, 24kGoldn, Jutes, Trevor Daniel, and Souly Had. No stranger to media coverage and acclaim from tastemakers, praise has rolled in from industry key players such as Complex, Elevator Mag, idolator, Lyrical Lemonade, and Vice’s Noisey.

Reflecting on his work, 12AM says, “My main focus is just to help people. That’s why I make music. When I get messages from fans saying Iߣve helped them through depression or whatever they are going through it means the world to me, I canߣt really believe it. That’s what I do this for. Whenever I play a show and fans are singing the lyrics back and when they meet me after the show I just want to have a positive impact and be there for them, because they are all that matters in this music industry.”

MÅNESKIN × IGGY POP — “I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE”

Måneskin gave me a big hot buzz.” —Iggy Pop

“It was such an honor that Iggy loved our music and wanted to work with us. It was touching seeing him sing ‘I Wanna Be Your Slave’ live in front of us, it was very powerful to see such a big artist being so open and friendly. We all grew up listening to his music and he inspired us to star up a band, it’s still unbelievable for us that we had the chance to get to know him and make music together.”Måneskin

Today sees Måneskin announce an exciting new version of their global hit “I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE” with rock legend Iggy Pop – set to be released on this Friday, August 6, 2021. Victoria, Damiano, Thomas and Ethan are working with one of the most rebellious and iconic names in the history of rock music, who, with his band The Stooges, earned his place in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame and who recently received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. The original track of “I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE” is part of Måneskin’s most recent album “Teatro d’Ira Vol.1”. The official videoclip, which premiered worldwide on YouTube on July 15, notched over 22 million streams in a week.

This week also sees Måneskin hold the #1spot on Spotify’s Global Song Chart for an impressive fourth week in a row, and they have soared to #14 on the platform’s overall list of most streamed artists (back-to-back with Billie Eilish) with more than 51 million monthly listeners. The band has also been named as Billboard’s monthly “Chartbreakers” for August, as they continue to hold #1 on five different charts – including “Emerging Artists” to “Hot Hard Rock Songs” and more.

Coming up, Måneskin will be going on tour at the greatest Music Festivals across Europe, and have recently announced a landmark special concert that will be held on Saturday, July 9, 2022 at the historic Circo Massimo in Rome.

James Vincent McMorrow × Paradise

James Vincent McMorrow shares the music video for Paradise from his upcoming album, Grapefruit Season, to be released on September 17.

“McMorrow has a soul voice to cherish” – Guardian

“The ever-shifting Irish singer-songwriter…it works” – Sunday Times, Hottest Tracks

“A deft collaboration, with James pushing his music onto a different realm, whilst maintaining that recognizable emotional pull” – CLASH

“Lyrically raw and immensely quotable” – The Forty Five

James Vincent McMorrow shares the video for new single Paradise, which is available now via Sony Music UK/RCA Records. Paradise is the latest taste of James’ much-anticipated new album Grapefruit Season – which also features teaser singles Headlights, Gone, and I Should Go (with Kenny Beats) – and is now set for release on September 17.

Produced by James alongside Paul Epworth and Lil Silva, Paradise is about pretending everything is fine when, beneath the surface, it really isn’t. Initially struggling to find its visual concept, the Paradise video started as an off-hand remark (“why don’t I just dig out my rollerblades and film myself learning to skate again in the park behind my house?”) but now feels like the perfect fit to the track’s uplifting, feel-good but melancholic center.

Paradise further previews Grapefruit Season, James Vincent McMorrow’s upcoming, fifth studio album – and one in which the artist, producer, and songwriter pushes himself (and his sound) in all new ways. The record was recorded between London, Los Angeles, and Dublin, largely before the pandemic struck. It embraces the timeless yet timely fact that life is chaos; the idea of growing up, but as Paradise suggests, still feeling none the wiser. Each song is held together by McMorrow’s instantly-identifiable voice, an untethered musical imagination, and (from dancehall to soul, country to R&B) purposefully little else in its pursuit of fear-free pop music. Even the title, Grapefruit Season, seems to signpost doing simply what you want, rather than what you are supposed to do – it was inspired by James watching his mum eat grapefruit as a kid, and the idea that what’s good for you may not actually be pleasurable.

Throughout the emotional highs and lows of Grapefruit Season, you are reminded of the risks James Vincent McMorrow has taken since the singer-songwriter roots of debut album Early In The Morning (which turned ten in 2020); but also that those same instincts – to follow inspiration wherever it leads, and to be as brutally honest possible – remain a refreshing constant. Whilst there may always be trouble in Paradise, what’s emerged is James Vincent McMorrow’s most essential album to date.

James also made headlines recently playing the first concert in Ireland with a live audience since the beginning of the pandemic (tickets sold out in just 30 seconds). With festivals including Latitude and Isle of Wight confirmed to follow this summer, McMorrow’s UK and European tour for early 2022 includes a London date at Kentish Town Forum on February 21 and two homecoming shows at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on April 19-20.

Måneskin Tops Global Charts

MÅNESKIN ON TOP OF THE WORLD #1 ON THE SPOTIFY GLOBAL CHART WITH BEGGIN’ AND AT #8 WITH I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE

The Groundbreaking Young Rock Band Surpassed Olivia Rodrigo’s good 4 u And Notches A Third Day With The Platform’s Most Streamed Song In The World, And Is The Only Artist With TWO Tracks In The Chart’s Top-10

Måneskin is a high-octane powerhouse of onstage charisma and youthful energy… [they] transcended linguistic barrier[s]… break down gender barriers and champion self-expression… There is something very revolutionary about them. – THE NEW YORK TIMES

ITALY’S MÅNESKIN REIGNITES ROCK – Måneskin is leading the charge for the return of rock as the Eurovision winners light up global charts. They won with ‘ZITTI E BUONI,’ but it’s their English-language material, natch, that’s primed them for an international breakthrough. The band’s cover of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons’ ‘Beggin’ has soared on Spotify’s global chart, followed by ‘I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE…  Will Måneskin be the act that ends Olivia Rodrigo’s run at the top of Spotify global? – HITS Daily Double

Måneskin, the world’s most-streamed Italian artists on Spotify – with 34 million streams in the last month, just broke another unprecedented record, skyrocketing to number 1 on the Spotify Global Chart with Beggin’, and also cracking the world’s charts with I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE and ZITTI E BUONI.  All three of the tracks recently reached #1 On Spotify’s U.S. Viral 50 chart. 

Zitti e Boni and I Wanna Be Your Slave are part of the band’s new album Teatro d’Ira – Vol. I, released on March 19, certified platinum in Italy and now basts over 400 million streams.

Following their epic win at the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest, Måneskin have climbed up the charts worldwide, achieving unprecedented results for Italian artists: they are the first Italian band in the history to crack the UK Singles Chart with two singles at the same time – at #6 and #10 – and collecting new gold and platinum certifications every week, in Italy and around the world.

MANESKIN ARE COMING FOR THE U.S. NEXT – the young Italian rock group has become a force to be reckoned with this year. And in just the past few weeks, their profile in the United States has taken a giant leap…Maneskin’s English-language single ‘I Wanna Be Your Slave,’ a song now helping to bring rock music back to the airwaves in the United Kingdom, started rocketing up the U.S. charts as well. ‘I Wanna Be Your Slave’ hit the top of Billboard’s Hot Hard Rock Songs chart the week of June 26, becoming the act’s first stateside No. 1. It makes perfect sense when considering the accessible strain of rock that Maneskin produce — a bouncy, guitar-fueled sound that brings to mind the 2000s garage rock explosion… Yet Maneskin’s production style is more polished, lending itself to the massive amount of radio airplay and internet spins they’ve amassed – LOUDWIRE

There’s an alluringly dark look in Damiano David’s black-lined eyes that’s almost like a challenge… David looks like he was hewn by an ancient Roman god of rock and roll — and sex. When I think of a sex symbol, I think of David… His band, Måneskin, is pushing boundaries and bringing a modernized glam rock into the limelight. Their surge to popularity hopefully marks a resurgence era of rock… While many of the artists I characterize as glam rock used their ambiguous, flamboyant dress as a form of expression for their sexuality, Måneskin is normalizing a more gender-fluid presentation…Måneskin could care less about social constructs. Everything about them is art… These 20-year-olds are embodying the Gen-Z tendency for nonconformity and a distaste for machismo’s objectification of women and hindrance of men’s actions and appearance. The way they present themselves is a visual treat… [and] completely badass… The way that Måneskin incorporates gender-bending fashion is tantalizing and only adds to their sex appeal …There’s a spirit and sensuality. They’re starting a conversation and to me that means they’re doing something new and right… Måneskin’s conversion of glam rock into a modern rock look, while creating global hits is going to make them eternal. – Megan Ramsey. Daily Nexus

BIOGRAPHY

Revelation of the year, Måneskin, which means moonlight in Danish, is formed by: vocalist Damiano, bassist Victoria, guitarist Thomas and drummer Ethan. Some band members have been friends since junior high, but they started playing together only in 2015. Their sound is characterized by a combination of the different members’ music influences: a mix of rock ’n’ roll, rap/hip hop, reggae, funky and pop, all held together by lead vocalist Damiano’s soulful voice. This combination of vibes is also reflected in the band’s look, made unique by each member’s fashionable style. The young artists had the chance to really stand out and reach out to the public at the X Factor 11 live shows, where they unexpectedly dominated the stage, a great endeavour given their very young age. Chosen, their debut single that was released during the show, boasts several million streams and views and was certified double platinum. Chosen is also the title of their debut EP, released in December 2017 by Sony Music and produced by Lucio Fabbri, which was certified platinum just two months after it was released.

All the dates of their first 21-date tour produced by Vivo Concerti (February/April 2018) sold out in a few hours. The single Morirò da Re (three-times platinum) was released in March 2018, followed by Torna a casa (five-times platinum). These tracks paved the way for the new album Il ballo della vita  entirely written by Måneskin and produced in collaboration with Fabrizio Ferraguzzo, which was released on October 26, 2018. The record made its debut at #1 on the FIMI/Gfk chart with four singles earning a spot on the Top Ten and, less than two hours after its release, it peaked to #1 on iTunes, cracking, just a day after its release, the Spotify TOP 50 with all its songs and hitting 1 million streams in less than 24h. In February 2019, the band went on tour across Europe, before returning to the best music clubs and festivals in Italy as part of the spring-summer leg of IL BALLO DELLA VITA TOUR, which ended on September 14, 2019 with a special date at Carroponte in Milan. Måneskin then performed at a sold-out special live show held on November 28, 2019 at The Dome in London. 

Damiano, Victoria, Thomas and Ethan have so far earned 23 platinum and 5 gold records, collecting over 140,000 tickets sold and 70 sold-out dates in Italy and Europe. On October 30, 2020 they released their new single Vent’Anni, accompanied by a campaign shot by celebrated photographer Oliviero Toscani. Måneskin won the 71st Sanremo Music Festival with the song ZITTI E BUONI, and then conquered the Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam. The release of their second album Teatro d’ira – Vol. I on March 19, 2021 will be followed by a 13-date tour held, for the first time ever, at sports arenas across Italy, which will kick off in December 2021 and end at the Arena di Verona on April 23, 2022, as well as by a tour across Europe’s greatest Music Festivals, which is scheduled for the summer of 2022.

Stay Connected With Måneskin via their Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music.

Deadmau5 Partners with Extreme Music and UTA to Launch a Dance Music Label

Deadmau5 is a renowned Canadian disk jockey, musician, and producer whose official name is Joel Thomas Zimmerman. He is also known for his music label mau5trap, which he started in 2007. As part of the plan to expand his music empire, Deadmau5 has partnered with UTA and established Extreme Music to launch beathau5, a new music label focusing on producing dance music. The main target of the content is meant for advertisements, film, and TV industry. 

In the past, Deadmau5 has partnered with multiple companies and collaborated with different artists, including Rob Swire and Sofia Toufa. His previous works have earned him more than five Grammy Award nominations and numerous deals. For instance, he teamed up with Xbox to play PUBG. 

He also worked with Microgaming, a software provider, to produce a branded video slot currently available in various top online casino sites in South Africa such as Casino Lab. The UTA negotiated deal is meant to enable Deadmau5 to reach a wider audience while providing his fans with exclusive music content.

The core duty of the Sony Music library division, Extreme Music, is to help in the production and distribution of the libraries that the Beathau5 label will be producing during the partnership. Currently, Extreme Music is working with Junkie XL, among other artists aiding in different distribution levels. 

In Spring, Beathau5 will put out five albums that Deadmau5 will personally work on compiling the entire music library of the project. The albums will contain music from numerous Mau5trap artists, both established and new. In addition, each library will be certified for screens, and according to Deadmau5, TV and film industry will finally have unlimited access to unique electronic music sounds for any project they may have. This news comes amid news of new music releases from numerous other stars.  

Every album release will be accompanied by NTFs from an artist whom the parties are yet to mention. A statement released by Russell Emanuel, the CEO of Extreme Music, shows he is enthusiastic about the project. He also confirmed that Extreme Music company has worked with multiple electronic music artists, but they have never gone further to create a label which is a huge accomplishment. 

Additionally, the CEO mentioned that they are ready to find the right ears for the upcoming Beathau5 projects. On the other hand, Zimmerman confirmed that partnering with Extreme Music is the right move since it is the company that will play a major role in finding the right audience and market for the upcoming project. Recently, Deadmau5 and his label mau5trap have scored incredible deals, with artists such as Maison Ware scoring a deal with Spree, an on-screen production by Hulu.

Also, at the beginning of 2020, Zimmerman launched hau5trap. The record label is meant to produce house music exclusively to millions of fans across the globe. That was followed by a tech company called PIXELYNX which Zimmerman established alongside Richie Hawtin, an electronic music pioneer who goes by the stage name Plastikman. 

These achievements show Joel Thomas Zimmerman, aka Deadmau5, will steer the new Beathau5 label in the right direction. Besides UTA, Deadmau5’s record label mau5trap is represented by Seven20 Entertainment, an international entertainment in Tech, Music, and Gaming, as well as LaPolt Law, P.C. However, Deadmau5 is given the rights to produce the creative content, whereas the other companies handle distribution.

Martin Garrix × Bobo × The Edge – We Are The People

Sony Music Netherlands/RCA Records today announce the release of the official UEFA EURO 2020 song “We Are The People” from Martin Garrix, featuring Bono and The Edge. The song is accompanied by an official music video starring all three artists. The visuals work in synergy with the song and together make for an uplifting and inspiring story.

Watch the music video HERE

With the track in the making for three years, Garrix had felt from the early stages of the creative process that Bono’s vocals would make the perfect fit for “We Are the People.” His vision came to life when both Bono and his U2 bandmate The Edge agreed to feature on the song. The collaboration evolved further with Bono writing the lyrics and creating melodies and The Edge adding the leading guitar riffs, resulting in a perfect blend of the signature sounds of each artist.

Martin Garrix said: “Creating the music for one of the biggest sports events in the world together with Bono and The Edge has been an incredible experience. I’m very proud of what we did together and excited to finally share it with the world!”

“We Are The People” reminds us that a song can address challenges facing the world at a given time and present a unified response. It is a hymn sheet from which we can all sing wherever we may come from, but especially in Europe where the UEFA tournament will capture the attention of the whole world. “We Are The People” hopes to reflect the positivity, hope and determination required for any team to succeed, as well as offer a sense of togetherness which fits the theme of UEFA EURO 2020: Unity. For the first time in EURO history, the tournament is being played across the continent, which will display the overriding theme of unity throughout.

Next to the official track, Garrix has also produced the official walkout and broadcast music for the tournament. Releasing on his 25th birthday, the song is a testament to his impressive march through the ranks of the music industry so far. Every UEFA EURO Championship since 1992 has had an official song with the likes of Nelly Furtado, Simply Red, and Enrique Iglesias providing the tournament’s soundtrack in the past. 

“The long wait is almost over, and we are delighted to officially unveil the official song for UEFA EURO 2020: ‘We Are The People’, which features some of the world’s most celebrated artists in Martin Garrix, Bono and The Edge,” said UEFA marketing director Guy-Laurent Epstein.

“Football and music have the power of bringing people together. They are vectors of passion and emotion and combining them will extend further the fan celebration of the tournament, as well as reaching out to new audiences. With the star-studded line-up we have pulled together to create the tournament’s official music, we are confident of doing just this.”

UEFA EURO 2020 is being held across the continent for the first time in the competition’s history, with 11 host cities in all. Amsterdam, Baku, Bucharest, Budapest, Copenhagen, Glasgow, London, Munich, Rome, Saint Petersburg and Seville will all host matches this summer with the first match kicking off at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome on June 11, 2021 with Turkey facing Italy. The final will take place at Wembley Stadium, London on July, 11 2021.

Elle King and Miranda Lambert "Drunk" PR image for Sony music by Kimberly Manfre, uploaded by Sarah Weinstein Dennison, for use by 360 Magazine

ELLE KING × MIRANDA LAMBERT – “DRUNK (AND I DON’T WANNA GO HOME)”

ELLE KING AND MIRANDA LAMBERT’S “DRUNK (AND I DON’T WANNA GO HOME)” CRASHES INTO THE #1 SPOT ON BOTH THE BILLBOARD ROCK AND COUNTRY DIGITAL SONG CHARTS THIS WEEK.

Listen/Watch HERE

Elle King and Miranda Lambert’s brand new collaboration “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” is clearly the party everyone has been missing. The single debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Country Digital Song Sales Chart and #1 on the Rock Digital Sales Chart. Listen/Watch the Video HERE.

The song was co-written by Elle King with Martin Johnson, who also produced the track, and was recorded in Nashville and New York pre-pandemic.

This is the second time the two female powerhouse performers have recorded together with their first release “Fooled Around and Fell in Love” (along with Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde, Tenille Townes and Caylee Hammack) going on to win the 2020 ACM Award for “Music Event of The Year.”  Elle also was a special guest on Miranda’s 2019 Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars tour.

To accompany the track, the pair met up in Nashville to film an 80s-inspired wedding video starring Elle as the bride and Miranda as her Maid of Honor complete with a cameo from Elle’s real-life fiancé as the groom. The video was shot in January by directing duo Running Bear using strict COVID protocols.

Watch the video HERE.

Check out what the press is saying about “Drunk”:

“’Drunk’ is a fist-pump, feel good, girl-power anthem from these two country power houses, with a nostalgic, pastel music video to match.”

360 Magazine

“This may be end up being a top-10 pop song, country song, and rock song of 2021.”

“Brilliant stuff here at the intersection King’s sassy roots-rock shtick, Lambert’s sassy country shtick, and the Nashville mainstream’s constant drift toward arena rock.”

Stereogum

“…a euphoric collaboration…exhilarating new duet.”
“When the chorus hits, it’s neon-spattered, banjo-flecked euphoria that fits perfectly with the idea of blowing off steam well into the wee hours.”

Rolling Stone

“Firebrands King and Lambert hit one out of the bar with this singalong ode to handing your keys to the bartender and drinking all night because you don’t want to go home. The song will fuel a thousand karaoke nights and a million bridal parties, but it’s the cotton candy-colored video that really sells it, with King as a feisty bride and Lambert as the maid of honor who’s the first to spike the punch.”

“… an enjoyable glass-raising anthem, but it’s the way that the ‘Ex’s and Oh’s’ singer and country veteran complement one another on the track that denotes a longstanding bond, and an opportunity to listen in on their fun.”

Billboard
“Elle King and Miranda Lambert’s Duet ‘Drunk’ Is an ‘All-In’ Party of an Event”

“Drunk” is a memorable, feel-good anthem.”

CMT

“…a rip-roarin’ good time!”
“…this catchy tribute to a blackout night, complete with a fun-filled, wedding-themed music video…”

“Go Behind the Scenes of Their Gender-Bending Music Video (Exclusive)

Entertainment Tonight

“…hilarious music video…”
People

“Country superstar Miranda Lambert and rocker Elle King let loose for a wild-night duet …up-tempo anthem…features a driving rhythmic stomp and maxed out country-rock edge, mixing rolling banjos with party-all-night vocals. Lambert leads the rebellious second verse and also blends her vocal in with King’s gritty delivery throughout, and King says track’s devil-may-care attitude suits them both well.”
Sounds Like Nashville

“It’s a wild wedding — and Miranda and Elle are there to party.”
The Boot

“the badassery levels are off the charts. Co-written by King and Martin Johnson, it’s a fun tribute to staying out till dawn and drinking the night away (remember that?).”

Whiskey Riff

“…unapologetic anthem…a first pumping, banjo-led party song to rule any dance floor.”

“’Drunk’ is coasting at the top of the charts right now because the track crosses any sort of existing genre barriers – the long hailing queen of country revenge tales and the rock/pop King belting out how they’re both not ready to leave the cash bar just yet. It’s a wedding party we all want to be a part of.”

Earmilk

“…a dizzying new party anthem”

Y2K x BBNO$ – Wawawa

Artist/producer Y2K and rapper bbno$ have joined forces once again to release the addictive earworm “Wawawa”. Listen HERE and watch the video HERE.

Says Y2K, “Wawawa’ (nearly titled Lalala 2) is the next installment in a 3 part fantasy saga about a halfling who journeys across the world to a volcano to destroy an evil ring. Wawawa was written remotely due to the pandemic, not something that bbno$ and I have ever really done before. As a result the record ended up changing and evolving over the course of multiple sessions/notes spread out this summer and into fall. I’m stoked on the result, and I hope our listeners feel the same!”

Ari additionally notes, “Also I am dressed as a hot mom in the music vid.”

“Wawawa” is the first joint offering since the release of their 2X Platinum viral hit “Lalala” which peaked Top 5 on the Global Spotify Chart and was routinely in the Top 20 on Spotify’s U.S. chart; listen HERE. Y2K and bbno$ also released the high octane “Lalala Remix” featuring Grammy Award winner Enrique Iglesias and Multi-platinum, Grammy, Juno and Polaris Prize nominated singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen.
