NO1-NOAH – Bounce

Singer/Songwriter NO1-NOAH (Ghetto Earth Records/Interscope Records) isn’t shying away from telling the ladies what he’s craving in his new video “Bounce.” Directed by Arman Mitchell, NOAH pens a hypnotic hook capable of seducing any woman to fulfill his desires in the bedroom. Surrounded by a bunch of party-goers, NOAH takes the action with him wherever he goes. Whether it’s the house, the streets, or the liquor store, no location is safe from Noah and his team of dance-happy friends. Watch HERE.

He is the first signee of Summer Walker, and much like her, is very open about his intentions, and that is evident through the song’s explicit lyrics. 

Last January, the promising songwriter was named one of Billboard’s 15 Hip-Hop & R&B Artists to Watch. Touted for his “ethereal vocals and intrepid lyricism,” NOAH first caused shockwaves in the R&B world when he appeared on Summer Walker’s 2020 standout EP Life on Earth. NOAH’s indelible prints landed on the singer’s stellar cuts “SWV” and “White Tee,” where he served as her guest feature.  

After displaying beams of promise on Walker’s sizzling anthems, NO1 inked a deal with her label Ghetto Earth Records last winter. Serving as her first artist, NOAH looks to rattle the cages of R&B with his emo-leaning tracks and sticky hooks. Since announcing his deal, his opening record, “Ridin For My Love,” flaunted his pillowy vocals and gutsy lyrics. With publications such as Rolling Stone and XXL already praising NOAH for his extraordinary talents, it’s only a matter of time before he morphs into a full-fledged star.

GRAMMY® Award-nominated, multi-platinum selling recording artist SZA releases “The Anonymous Ones,” the next song to be unveiled from the DEAR EVAN HANSEN (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK), today.  A brand-new song was written specifically for the Universal Pictures release, “The Anonymous Ones” was written by Benj Pasek, Justin Paul, and Amandla Stenberg.  A co-star in the movie, Stenberg’s performance of the song as featured in the film is also released today. “The Anonymous Ones” is a song that reminds us that everyone, even people who seem to have it all together, have their own struggles and insecurities, and fears. But when we open up to each other we realize how much we can help one another just by being there for each other. Dear Evan Hansen (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) will be released on September 24 through Interscope Records. Listen to “The Anonymous Ones”—HERE.

The full lineup of artists has been revealed for the soundtrack, including Sam Smith with Summer Walker, SZA, Carrie Underwood and Dan + Shay, FINNEAS, and Tori Kelly. Plus, the 16-track album features new recordings by the film cast of these beloved songs with music and lyrics by the Oscar®, Grammy®, and Tony® winning songwriting team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, The Greatest Showman). Among the new songs, the Soundtrack also includes “A Little Closer” performed by Colton Ryan.

Last month, Universal Pictures & Interscope Records unveiled new renditions of the film’s iconic anthems “Waving Through A Window” and “You Will Be Found” performed by Tony®, Grammy® and Emmy® winner Ben Platt, who originated the role of Evan Hansen on Broadway and reprises the role for the film. And just last week saw the release of Carrie Underwood and Dan + Shay’s version of “Only Us.”

Pre-order the Dear Evan Hansen (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack).  —HERE.

The film premiered last night at the Toronto International Film Festival and Universal Pictures will release Dear Evan Hansen in theaters nationwide on September 24th.

Dear Evan Hansen opened on Broadway in December 2016 and became a generation-defining phenomenon, winning six Tony Awards, including for Best Musical and for Ben Platt as Best Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical. The show’s cast album would go on to earn a Grammy®.

Now, in the film, Ben Platt returns as Evan Hansen, an anxious, isolated high schooler aching for understanding and belonging amid the chaos and cruelty of the social-media age.  360 Magazine is very excited to watch this movie as this brings a huge portion of our audience. 

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being A Wallflower, Wonder), the film is written for the screen by the show’s Tony® winner Steven Levenson with music and lyrics by Pasek & Paul. Dear Evan Hansen stars six-time Oscar® nominee Amy Adams, Oscar® winner Julianne Moore, Kaitlyn Dever (Booksmart), Amandla Stenberg (The Hate U Give), Colton Ryan (Little Voice), Nik Dodani (Atypical), and Danny Pino (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit).

The film is produced by Marc Platt (La La Land, Into the Woods, Mary Poppins Returns) and Adam Siegel (2 Guns, Drive), and is executive produced by Steven Levenson, Benj Pasek, Justin Paul, Michael Bederman, and Stacey Mindich.

C.S. ARMSTRONG COVERS “LIMIT TO YOUR LOVE”

DEEP COVERS 187 MIXTAPE ARRIVING ON 7/14

Emerging as a fascinating and fiery force for R&B, C.S. Armstrong unveils a new cover of “Limit To Your Love” today with a music video. It’s the first single from his Deep Covers 187 mixtape releasing on July 14th. You can listen to the new cover HERE. You can watch the accompanying music video HERE.

C.S. Armstrong brings new life to “Limit To Your Love” which was originally recorded by James Blake and Feist. In his signature rework of the song, Armstrong injects the record with unlimited soul. In the cinematic music video he takes inspiration from the classic film Queen and Slim, continuously reinventing beautiful art with his own unique fashion.

Carving out his niche with cover songs, C.S. Armstrong’s latest renditions include Gnarls Barkely’s “Crazy,” Summer Walker’s “Session 32” and Sade’s “Sweetest Taboo.” Additionally, the modern-day bluesman recently teamed up with none other than Black Thought of The Roots for “Welcome To America” from the Judas and the Black Messiah Soundtrack. Attracting critical praise, The New York Times highlighted Armstrong’s “gritty vocal choruses.”

All of this follows the release of “Own Two” featuring Jay Rock which will be included on his forthcoming major label debut album. Be on the lookout for more from C.S. Armstrong soon.

Born to a single mother in the service with a preacher grandma in his corner, C.S. Armstrong traveled an unbelievable road one step at a time. At 10-years-old, he preached in church as an ordained minister. At 16-years-old, he earned respect in the streets with his fists. At 18-years-old, he enlisted in the military to serve his country. Eight years later, he rolled into New York and lent his voice to one hip-hop banger after another. His instantly recognizable vocals shined on Statik Selektah’s “In The Wind” [feat. Joey Bada$$ & Big K.R.I.T] and Bun B, Prodigy, and Remy Bank’s “Where’s Your Leader.” His voice also coursed through Action Bronson’s tastemaker-approved Billboard Top 200 chart-topping Mr. Wonderful, in addition to joining the star on the road. Settling in Southern California, he powered Book’s “Last Man Standing” for the official Call of Duty: WWII trailer and dropped a pair of critically acclaimed independent projects, namely Truth Be Told [2019] and The Blue Tape [2020]. His voice echoed on Black Thought’s “We Could Be Good (United)” [feat. C.S. Armstrong & OSHUN] from the critical favorite Streams of Thought, Vol. 3: Cain & Able. Along the way, Dr. Dre became his “uncle,” Republic Records signed him, and he distilled gospel, blues, hip-hop, and rock into a sound as intoxicating and biting as aged whisky. Streamed millions of times and championed by BillboardA COLORS SHOW, and more, OnesToWatch claimed, “The music is something to grow old with.” Now, he tells the story with no filter on a series of singles for Republic Records.

Summer Walker × Interscope Records – Ghetto Earth Records

Platinum-selling award-winning artist Summer Walker (LVRN/Interscope Records) begins her journey as an executive with her new imprint Ghetto Earth Records. The joint venture deal with Interscope Records lands Walker her first signee NO1-NOAH. The talented singer/songwriter recently partnered up with the Over It artist on her Life on Earth EP and together, they shined on “White Tee” and “SWV.”

“I came up with Ghetto Earth because earth is ghetto,” says Walker. “I don’t wanna be controlling over my artist’s music. I want them to be fully involved in everything they put out. I’m just here to support and help them get to wherever it is they’re trying to go in life.”

NO1-NOAH comments, “I’m excited to show people my music, and what I have to offer. I feel like being on Summer’s team, Ghetto Earth Records, is the right home for me to be as creative as possible as an artist. She’s really understanding of what a true artist is, as she is one herself. I’m free to create here and it’s always a great feeling as an artist to be able to make music for a team that gets the sound that you’re trying to create.”

“Summer is a true visionary. She’s writing her own rules as one of the most talented artists in R&B music today and is now adding entrepreneur to her vast repertoire,” says Interscope Records Nicole Wyskoarko, EVP/Co-Head of A&R. “Summer brings an unapologetically outspoken and empowering voice to Ghetto Earth and a radically different and much-needed perspective to developing emerging talent such as NO1-NOAH. We are thrilled that Summer has chosen Interscope as Ghetto Earth’s partner and home.”

SUMMER WALKER’S ACCOMPLISHMENTS

On the artist front, Walker is having an incredible year. After gracing the cover of Billboard Magazine for their R&B / Hip-Hop Power Players issue last month, she starred alongside Erykah Badu for Rolling Stone’s Musicians on Musicians cover. Her win streak continued when she walked away victorious at the Soul Train Music Awards last month, winning Album of the Year for Over It. Her latest feat adds to her growing collection of awards, as she previously netted wins at the iHeartRadio Music Awards for Best New R&B Artist and the Billboard Music Awards for Top R&B Female Artist.

Over It contains the platinum-certified single “Come Thru” and the double-platinum hit “Playing Games.” The latter has spent 20 weeks on the Hot 100. Over It has spent 49 weeks in the top 40 and 56 weeks in the top 50 on the Billboard 200 Album chart. In July, Walker’s EP, Life on Earth, debuted inside the top 10 on the Billboard 200 at No. 8.

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.

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.
