WATCH THE VIDEO HERE

Gold-selling singer, songwriter, and producer BoyWithUke unveils the cinematic music video for his latest single “Sick Of U” feat. Oliver Tree, out now via Mercury Records/Republic Records—watch HERE

In the visual for “Sick of U,” BoyWithUke and Oliver Tree reimagine a classic scene from American Psycho with a twist. BoyWithUke does his best Patrick Bateman impersonation as he hacks up his guest—who sings back to him from a trash bag and while the dirt covers his final resting place. It matches the manic push and pull of this rapidly rising anthem from this dynamic duo.

BoyWithUke built anticipation for the track on social media prior to its arrival. He teased the song on TikTok with a series of posts, generating millions of views on videos of a bloody Oliver Tree in BoyWithUke’s signature mask and even getting his instantly recognizable hairstyle straightened. As for the song itself, the alternative pop disruptor breaks boundaries once again, dipping in and out of glitchy production punctuated by tightly threaded organic instrumentation. Meanwhile, he and Oliver Tree trade catchy lines worthy of the ultimate breakup text. Building towards an emotional sendoff, BoyWithUke reminds, “Life goes on and on.
 
BoyWithUke continues racing towards a major mainstream breakthrough. His following has grown beyond 6 million on TikTok, 2.5 million on YouTube, and 2.2 million on Spotify. His full-length debut album, Serotonin Dreams, only fueled this explosion. Beyond tallying hundreds of millions of streams, The Honey Pop hailed it as “the album of our dreams” and raved, “each song on Serotonin Dreams snakes into our minds in a different way, making some of our deepest emotions feel understood and making some of our favorite playlists feel like they just found a new winner to add.”     
 
Serotonin Dreams features collaborations with various artists, including blackbear (“IDGAF”), mxmtoon (“Prairies”), and Powfu (“Contigo”). Consequence declared BoyWithUke has proven himself to be particularly prolific” and “‘Understand’ shows potential to be the next of BoyWithUke’s hits.” Leading up to the anxiously awaited release of Serotonin DreamsBoyWithUke dropped his viral singles “Long Drives” and IDGAF feat. blackbearBillboard praised “IDGAF” as “a gently heartbroken kiss-off anthem about moving on from a toxic ex,” while Ones To Watch described it as “perfectly petty in all the right ways, BoyWithUke and black bear match earworm, radio-ready production with unapologetic low blows.” Indie Shuffle proclaimed, BoyWithUke has slowly become a household name in the indie music scene; now working with Blackbear, the combo of melancholia and high-energy pop has made for a gallery of pure entertainment and an addictive earworm at that!”
 
The tracks followed BoyWithUke’s 2021 gold-certified smash hit “Toxic,” which has amassed over 1.2 billion global streams to date and peaked at #1 on the Alternative Radio Chart for two consecutive weeks. Not to mention, his record-breaking live performance of the song for Genius’ Open Mic series is the platform’s “the #1 most-viewed video on Genius with over 86 million views and counting.
 
Earlier this summer, BoyWithUke sold out his first-ever headline shows in New York and Los Angeles.
 
You may be sick of your ex, but you’ll never be sick of BoyWithUke and Oliver Tree!

About BoyWithUke
What do we know about BoyWithUke? If you quickly scan TikTok, you can figure out he is a musical artist who writes and produces all of his own music, creating songs in his dorm room on GarageBand while hiding his face from the public with his now signature glowing mask. Take a deeper look, and you’ll see he frequently posts “minute long songs,” many times written in response to requests from fans. His biggest hit to date was written after a fan commented “make a song about toxic friends plzzzx,” and the response was the song “Toxic.” The song describes how it feels when you realize all your friends are terrible people (people you’d probably be better off without), but the thought of being alone makes you feel even worse. The song has taken over as it vaulted into the Top 10 at Alternative Radio and has reached nearly 1.2 billion global streams to date. Not to mention, his performance of “Toxic” has emerged as the platform’s second highest-viewed Genius video to date with nearly 60 million views and counting. Up next, he will be continuing his sold out international headline tour and releasing his debut album Serotonin Dreams that features new single “IDGAF” ft. blackbear. The project will be the follow up to previous full length projects Melatonin Dreams, Fever Dreams, Trouvaille EP, and his latest Faded EP (featuring numerous songs created from his TikTok “minute long songs” project).

After individually booking the group members of Swedish House Mafia to spin, Wynn Nightlife decided to build a partnership to include the entire ensemble. This will mark SHM‘s first-ever nightlife residency within North America.

According to Ryan Jones, assistant vice president of Wynn Nightlife, the group has received an overwhelming response, resulting in almost sold out show.  

The first two shows, August 20th and September 3rd, will both be held at the XS nightclub. Although Swedish House Mafia will play a traditional set in the DJ booth, audience members will witness a few surprises on those specific dates. Both shows will happen on Saturday night, around 1:30 am or 2 am and play until the venue closes. With a capacity of about 4,000 people, including 176 VIP tables, Ryan thinks the show will be an enormous success.  

In addition, Calvin Harris will perform on September 17th at XS nightclub. More exciting news will be announced in the coming months.

As an innovative brand which has worked in tandem with both Coachella and the Super Bowl, the Wynn continues to seek new and exciting ways to remain relevant in both the music and entertainment industries.

According to Ryan, with regards to philanthropy, the community outreach program at Wynn Nightlife is robust. To date, the staff has volunteered 2,500 documented hours to various local charities and elementary schools within city limits.

For young people who seek similar positions, Ryan suggests they explore every aspect of the industry before making a decision.

The statement read, “Today, American citizen Brittney Griner received a prison sentence that is one more reminder of what the world already knew: Russia is wrongfully detaining Brittney, […] It’s unacceptable, and I call on Russia to release her immediately so she can be with her wife, loved ones, friends, and teammates.”
