“Toosii possesses that rare combination of creativity, intelligence, and ambition you only find in the greats,” says Jeff Vaughn, President, Capitol Records.”We are excited to welcome him and our partners Arnold Taylor and South Coast Music Group to Capitol Records.”

Arnold Taylor, CEO, South Coast Music Group, recalls, “The first time I listened to Toosii I knew he was a Megastar, which is why I did not hesitate signing him to South Coast Music Group.

Summer Walker – Life on Earth

R&B superstar Summer Walker (LVRN/Interscope Records) continues her impressive winning streak after the release of her emo-leaning EP, Life on Earth. Debuting at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Top R&B Albums chart, the five-track serving proves to be a healthy entree for listeners enamored by Walker’s candor and dulcet vocals. Featuring NO1-NOAH (“SWV” & “White Tee”) and PARTYNEXTDOOR (“My Affection”), Walker brilliantly collides with both artists, while maintaining her entrancing mystique as R&B’s prized gem. Walker’s streaming excellence continues to be her calling card, as Life on Earth netted an astounding 32 million streams its opening week.

Even the pandemic can’t thwart Walker’s momentum, as her legion of supporters came in droves from various cities for her recent activations. In collaboration with Amazon Music, Walker’s Life on Earth UFO Listening Experience allowed fans in Atlanta to receive a first glimpse of the project inside of their cars. With Walker’s pink UFO on-site, her devotees soaked in the galactic experience at various showings throughout the evening. On release day, Walker treated her Atlanta fans once again with her spacey Battle on Earth Laser Tag experience at the Westside Cultural Arts Center. The singer’s altruism continued when she whipped up her Life on Earth Ice Cream Shuttle experience for her fans in New York City. With social distancing encouraged, fans safely ventured to several locations in NYC to meet the space shuttle for free ice cream and space candy from the LVRN songstress. For the cherry on top, Walker chatted with Apple Music’s R&B Now Radio to discuss her new EP, her creative process and more.

Walker’s scorching success continues to be the talk of the music industry. After her debut project Last Day of Summer spent 35 weeks on the Billboard 200, she quickly bloomed into an R&B powerhouse with her 2x platinum breakout single, “Girls Need Love” from her 2018 project Last Day of Summer. Walker would capitalize on her success with her magnum opus, 2019’s Over It. Residing on the Billboard 200 Top 10 for 11 weeks, Over It birthed an RIAA Gold single in “Come Thru” with Usher and a platinum single with her lead record, “Playing Games.” Over It remained a dominant force on the Billboard 200, spending 38 weeks in the top 40 and 40 weeks in the top 50, solidifying her torrid run as R&B’s most elite vocalist.

Kane Brown, Khalid and Swae Lee debut song in 360 MAGAZINE.

Kane Brown × Khalid × Swae Lee Be Like That

Multi-Platinum country superstar Kane Brown released “Be Like That” together with Grammy-nominated artists Swae Lee and Khalid today. The Pop-forward summer anthem, which all three artists had a hand in writing, follows Brown’s unifying ballad “Worldwide Beautiful,” which he released last month and debuted on nationwide television with a performance at the 2020 BET Awards on June 28.

“It’s about all the different feelings you can have in a relationship,” Brown says of “Be Like That. “And trying not to overthink it. When it gets tough, you want to be on your own, but then you miss the person a second later. I think it’s something everyone goes through.”

“Be Like That” reunites past collaborators Brown and Khalid, who teamed up for a remix of Khalid’s single, “Saturday Nights,” in January 2019. From there, Brown went on to work with a series of stars across multiple genres, including famed DJ Marshmello, with whom he co-wrote and released “One Thing Right,” which reached the Top 15 at Mediabase’s Pop Radio Airplay chart. His ballad with John Legend, “Last Time I Say Sorry,” followed in March 2020 and peaked at No. 2 on Billboard’s Digital Song Sales chart. The following month, Brown dropped “Cool Again,” which closed out April as the most-added single to country radio and is currently at No. 14 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart.

Swae Lee released “Reality Check” last month, his first new music since his feature on Chloe x Halle’s hit “Catch Up” from their Top R&B Albums No. 2 long-player, Ungodly Hour. Earlier this year, Khalid unveiled a pair of critically acclaimed new singles, “Know Your Worth” (w/Disclosure) and “Eleven” feat. Summer Walker along with stunning visuals to accompany both tracks.
