SEBASTIAN JAVIER — “CRYSTAL BALL”

Argentina-born and Toronto-based singer, songwriter, and personality Sebastian Javier has returned with his brand new single, “Crystal Ball” (Spanish Version). The track is available to stream and download starting today HERE. Sebastian has also unveiled an Heirmanos-directed official music video for the track. In the cinematic visual, Sebastian stumbles into a new world while trying to discover what the future of his love life holds. Watch it on his official YouTube channel HERE.

On “Crystal Ball” (Spanish Version), soft acoustic guitar underscores Sebastian’s dynamic delivery before a bouncy R&B chorus. “You wish you could tell the future, so you know if she’s going to stay with you or not,” Sebastian shares. “The song directly correlates to my 14-year-old self wishing I knew the future.”

Sebastian Javier recently announced his signing to Elektra Records in an exclusive interview with Billboard, and released “Bad For Me” alongside an official music video. Upon its release, the track received praise from People en Espanol, Sweety High, Univision and more. Last month, he returned with “Mala Para Mi,” a Spanish language version of the track. Watch the song’s music video HERE.

Sebastian’s latest releases present his scorching signature style steeped in both pop and Latin. He adds, “I was making songs that truly felt like they were mine. I could be versatile and show my Argentinian side and my Canadian side. Since I love pop music, I thought, ‘Why cant we do it in Spanish?’”

Sebastian has all the makings of global pop’s new leading man, and his recent single set the stage for much more new music later this year.

Stay tuned for more from Sebastian Javier soon.

ELISE ERIKSEN × AFROJACK – Less ft. Shoffy (Afrojack Remix)

PRESS HERE to Listen

Emerging pop artist Elise Eriksen has teamed up with legendary DJ Afrojack to reimagine her debut single “Less ft. Shoffy” as a shimmering summer anthem. PRESS HERE to listen to the remix for the pop favorite, which was originally co-written with multi-platinum songwriter Julia Michaels, and features both Shoffy and Blu DeTiger.

“This project is really special to me considering a DJ I have listened to all my life wanted to remix my song,” says Elise on the collaboration. “It feels completely surreal and I am beyond thankful!”

“Less ft. Shoffy (Afrojack Remix)” arrives on the heels of the original version, which recently broke over a million streams on Spotify alone after being featured on key pop playlists worldwide and receiving international radio play–including multiple spins on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 2, the biggest radio stations in Europe. PRESS HERE to watch the effortlessly cool video for “Less ft. Shoffy,” which reflects on growing apart in a relationship and shows Elise defying expectations to stand out alongside a cast of her best friends. “Less ft. Shoffy” took shape after Elise threw herself into reimagining an early version of the track being toyed with by her father (GRAMMY-winning producer Mikkel Eriksen) and using her encyclopedic knowledge of music history and first-hand experience of watching the world’s biggest stars while growing up in the studio. The Afrojack collaboration also follows Elise’s second single “Smile,” which was co-written by Sasha Sloan, (Charli XCX, Camila Cabello, Anne-Marie, Katy Perry) The track showcases Elise’s distinctive vocals over her own piano instrumental while speaking to putting on a façade and smiling even though you’re not okay. PRESS HERE to watch the breathtakingly stark video, which was shot entirely by iPhone 12 on a frozen lake in Norway at -15°F.

Originally from Norway, Elise moved to New York City soon after discovering her love for music and is now based in Los Angeles. Learning over the years what it takes to make a perfect pop song, Elise is the daughter of one half of uber-producers Stargate (Rihanna, Katy Perry, Beyoncé, Coldplay) and grew up in the studio surrounded by the world’s top artists and songwriters. Embracing the uncompromising work ethic she grew up surrounded by, Elise devoted years to playing the piano and honing her craft before experimenting with writing songs of her own. Inspired by artists as eclectic as Stevie Nicks, Alicia Keys, Don Toliver, Pink Floyd, and Etta James, the seventeen-year-old’s dynamic musical imagination and sharp musical instincts reflect her endless creative curiosity and a deep commitment to her artistic growth.

“’Smile’ is a stripped-down, confessional ballad, with a chorus that aims for the rafters and nicely showcases the newcomer’s developing range.” – Billboard

 “If you don’t already know the name Elise Eriksen, you’re about to in a big way.” – Sweety High

SPOTTED: TEGAN MARIE AT NEW YORK FASHION WEEK


Young Country Newcomer All Aglow Attending The Runway Shows

 

Warner Music Nashville’s Tegan Marie glowed while attending New York Fashion Week on Monday and Tuesday (9/11-12). At just 13 years old, her sophisticated sense of style was on full display while sitting front row at Anna Sui. This fashion bucket list moment checks another one off the list following her record deal signing last month. The rising star is the youngest female artist to sign a major label Country deal in 45 years.

With a larger-than-life voice, the budding singer-songwriter was discovered by leading Gen Z girls’ media platform Sweety High when her father uploaded videos of her cover songs to their site. Tegan Marie – also a Radio Disney Country artist – since catapulted into the national spotlight with several high-profile media performances and appearances including ABC’s Good Morning America and PBS’ star-studded special Smokey Robinson: The Gershwin Prize and the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards. Last year, the Flint, MI, native released the song, “Lucky Me,” to benefit the children affected by the water crisis in her hometown. Continuing the momentum, her breathtaking rendition of Florida Georgia Line’s #1 hit song, “H.O.L.Y.,” racked up over 17 million views on Facebook alone. Tegan has amassed over 75 million video views and receives over five million engagements online each month. She’s also had a string of impressive performances, sharing the stage with singers Cam, Smokey Robinson and duetting with Kelsea Ballerini. This past spring Tegan appeared at CMA Music Festival on the Radio Disney Country stage and at California’s popular Country music festival Stagecoach to great acclaim. Critics praised her performance with USA Today hailing, “[Tegan] Marie has the personality and the voice of a future star, and she definitely has the always hard-to-define ‘It.’” She recently wrapped a six-city tour with Pepsi MidAmerica and is currently writing for her debut album.
