Carly Weinstein is fast becoming Gen Z’s Carrie Bradshaw. With a strong emphasis on popular culture, mental health as well as body positivity, this charismatic content creator engages on a wide spectrum of topics with her new podcasts–Hot Girl Talks and Ok, Stop Wine-ing. Of late, she participates in bantar alongside of Vaughn Lowery about her meeting with Drew Barrymore and what the cards may hold for her future.

With an aggregate following of a half million and over 38 million likes on TikTok, Carly is this generation’s everyday gal-pal. Her comedic content focuses on everyday, real-life challenges which people in their twenties experience. Along with her two co-hosts and best friends, Hailey and Jaz, the trio hosts “Hot Girl Talks” – a weekly series that pinpoints Gen Z growing pains in NYC.

On a lighter note, Carly co-hosts “Ok Stop Wine-ing” alongside her mom. She says , “a great lesson for a mother and a daughter.” The duo executes weekly confabulations while offering advice on how to meticulously navigate life.

Following in the footsteps of the iconic bloggers of the 2000s’, Carly self-taught herself how to code and build websites. During her adolescence at Indiana University (IU), she developed “All Things C.” It provided her with an opportunity to create a safe space where she openly spoke about her eating disorders and body dysmorphia to a relatable demographic of her peers. “No matter what I’m talking about… I make sure the basis of my brand always has those underlying messages of ‘you’re beautiful no matter what,’…and giving people advice on how to combat some of those hard times in life.” “I’ve been through plenty of mental health issues in my life, so I speak to my following as if I’m speaking to my younger self or a younger sibling.” Priding herself as the “mom” of group, Carly has always possessed a knack helping those in need.

After graduating from IU, Carly relocated to NYC as a social media manager. Subsequently, she expeditiously transitioned into an avid TikToker, garnering recognition for her unapologetic approach. Thus, she discovered her niche as a creator.

In her leisure, she traveled and grew fond of pickleball while building strong ties to her community.

“I’m very involved with Jewish youth organizations like BBYO… My family is really big with making donations to cancer charities, also mental health organizations like the National Eating Disorders Association.”

In the near future, Carly hopes to become an advocate for mental stability.

Listen to “Don’t Lie” here / watch the video here.

Back with another one of their unique takes on reinventing celebrated anthems, A1 X J1 come correct with a fresh take on Shakira’s “Hips Don’t Lie” in the new single “Don’t Lie.” Featuring the instantly recognizable trumpet flourish and reggaeton rythmn, the track is creatively infused with the boys’ love for rap and R&B, upping the tempo whilst trap slaps filter throughout. 

As an alternative to shooting a traditional music video for the new single, the duo took it upon themselves to donate the 30,000 music video budget to the Sidemen Fc Vs Youtube All Stars charity football game, of which the profits go towards a number of charities including Make-A-Wish Foundation. The charity offers support to children who have had their childhoods stolen by a critical illness. They will also support by donating to other mental health services to young people including, Teenage Cancer Trust and Calm (Mental Health Charity). The cameos in the video feature Mr Beast, Chunkz, Filly, Cal The Dragon, Harry Pinero, Ishowspeed, Noah Beck, Deji to name a few!

Whilst the duo have gained remarkable success in the music industry, including three top-five singles, collaborations with the likes of KSI, Mae Muller and Mabel and a 2022 BRIT nomination, more recently they’ve achieved further personal highs. These come in form of featuring in the upcoming Converse campaign, becoming the main artists in the Amazon Music X Fortnight Tournament and securing the support act for N-Dubz upcoming arena tour. It doesn’t end there, the pair are also headlining their first ever EU tour in December and have been nominated for GRM Breakthrough Artist Of The Year. 

Speaking about the track and working with rapper Nemzzz on the track, A1 X J1 have said: “Nemzzz is hard and up and coming so we’re really excited to collaborate with him on the new single.”

Speaking about his feature on the track Nemzzz adds: “We always said we would get on a song together so it’s sick that we made it happen now.”

After meeting on the off chance through the Houseparty App in 2020, A1 x J1 have gained unimaginable success at the young age of 16 and 18, not to mention whilst doing so in the unprecedented circumstances of a pandemic, and school. It’s been a whirlwind year for the 16 and 18-year-old, who, in the short time they’ve known each other, have pulled off the impossible.

Addison Grace – Immaturing

Salt Lake City-based musician and TikTok star Addison Grace finally releases his highly anticipated debut EP, Immaturing, along with its fourth single, “I Don’t Wanna Fall In Love,” out now. In addition to the five-track EP, Addison Grace will hit the road beginning this August across the U.S. on his debut headline tour with support from Sydney Rose on all dates, and Kate Stephenson and Leanna Firestone on select dates. Tickets are on sale now HERE.

On the rock-leaning, Cameron Hale-produced (Claud, Neon Trees, Khalid) “I Don’t Wanna Fall In Love,” Addison Grace questions and challenges traditions like marriage and a picket fence, and gets sick of swiping to find love. Instead, Grace hopes for more out of life than just what might be expected of him and refuses to live a mundane, ordinary life. Beginning at age 18, Grace illustrates what they don’t want to be doing at ages 23 and 43, singing, “I don’t wanna be 23 / with a white picket fence / no job and no degree / if that’s in then / I don’t wanna fall in love / love, love, love, love / I don’t wanna be 43 / living half my life, nothing to show of me / if that’s it, if that’s it / maybe, maybe it’s just me.”

“I Don’t Wanna Fall In Love,” challenges the societal idea that one needs love to find happiness, that perhaps one might be better off prioritizing self-love, and finding joy within one’s self instead of searching for it in others. It’s a track that came to Grace unexpectedly with the help of producer and songwriter Luke Arens and the aforementioned Cameron Hale. Grace explains, “IDWFIL was a song I never expected to write! It started as a song that was about being frustrated about not being able to find love but then, with Luke Arens help, it turned into a song about wanting to find joy in being ‘just you’ and hating that society tells you that you need love to find happiness,” says Grace. “Cameron Hale, the producer, helped me make it the angsty pump-up song I needed and wanted it to be. I guess overall I never expected this song to exist but I’m unbelievably happy it does now and I think a lot of others will be happy too.”

Grace could not be more ready to bring listeners into the warm, approachable world they’ve built with Immaturing. Grace explains, “I’ve been so excited to finish and release this set of songs and finally have my first official EP! Immaturing started as a group of independent songs that somehow ended up perfectly telling what it feels like to grow up. While the order of the songs plays a key role—each song still has its own feel, its own story, and I hope everyone can find their own way to relate regardless of where they are in life. This is, quite literally, my teenage and young adulthood told in music form.”

The EP’s previous three singles have each been met with praise from a slew of leading tastemakers and garnered millions of streams. The second single from the EP, “Makes Me Sick,” also produced by Hale, caught the attention of Billboard, who wrote, “The result is a heartbreaking anthem dedicated to self-sabotage, where Grace details their exploits in navigating the lovesick feeling they’re caught in. EUPHORIA lauded, “What makes ‘Makes Me Sick’ a highlight of Grace’s discography is its raw and honest vulnerability into something as complex and deeply felt like love. It’s a song for the people who have been hurt in the past; the ones who are unsure of if they deserve better treatment by whoever comes along next.”

Vulnerable fan-favorite and lead single from the EP, “I Wanna Be A Boy,” allows Grace to discover more of themselves and their gender identity, amassing over 1.4 million streams on Spotify alone. Glasse Factory wrote, “I Wanna Be a Boy” is immensely touching in both writing and sound. Grace’s hard-earned ability of singing shines beautifully in every second of the track, as he speaks about who he wishes he was, and coming to terms with the difficulty of acceptance.” TREMG called the track, “a tender exploration of identity over an acoustic guitar and thumping beat.”

Reyanna Maria – Used Two

19-year-old Melbourne-based Filipino pop/R&B singer and songwriter Reyanna Maria serves up a sizzling new single: “Used 2”.

Get it HERE via Victor Victor Worldwide/Republic Records.

On the track, an airy beat brushes up against her smooth delivery as she warns, “I might throw it back on your man like you used to.” With attitude and swagger, she continues to flex with a flirty promise, “Your man coming home with me, because I know he don’t like the way you do.” The track highlights her dynamic vocals, provocative lyrics, and undeniable energy. 

It arrives on the heels of “What’s Ur Sign?” The latter has amassed over 1 million streams to date in addition to reeling in critical acclaim.  Billboard named it among the “R&B/Hip-Hop Fresh Picks of the Week,” and claimed: “the track is catchy and confident, setting the laid-back singer up for an equally lovable follow-up release.” Bongmines Entertainment attested, “‘What’s Ur Sign?’ contains a relatable narrative, flirtatious lyrics, and an ear-pleasing vocal flow.”

Reyanna exploded with the buzzing single “So Pretty” and its Tyga-assisted Official Remix. Right out of the gate, HIGHSNOBIETY named her among “Creators to Watch Right Now” and raved, “Reyanna Maria is the face of a new league of home-grown artists who are using social media to take the reigns of their careers and cultivating their presence in the music industry on their own terms.” Meanwhile, she also picked up plugs from Forbes, HotNewHipHop, and more.

“So Pretty” initially came to life when Reyanna sang on a duet challenge on TikTok. The spur-of-the-moment sound that was created from the video exploded with over 20 million views and 1 million-plus TikTok videos. On its heels, the original track posted up 45 million-plus streams and counting to date. Videos using “So Pretty” were created by Chrissy Teigen (34M Followers), Bella Poarch (56.4M Followers), Alicia Keys (20.7M Followers), Vanessa Bryant (14.3M Followers) and many more!

Even when clutching the tiny microphone of her wired earbuds and serenading a smartphone camera, Reyanna Maria exudes the kind of charisma and attitude meant for the global spotlight. Within a few months’ time, the 19-year-old Melbourne-based Filipino songstress has already inspired 1 million-plus TikTok videos and racked up over 12 million streams. By the age of fourteen, she started to fill a notebook with lyrics and song ideas. She posted covers online and mimicked idols such as Ariana Grande and Jhené Aiko. As part of an online challenge, she went live on TikTok to sing on a beat. The initial clip of “So Pretty” exploded with nearly 10 million views as they finished the song together in two more successive posts, totaling 22 million views. Victor Victor Worldwide founder Steven Victor signed Reyanna on the spot once he found out about her video. Now, the official release of “So Pretty” [feat. Tyga] formally introduces Reyanna Maria as a fiery force for pop and R&B.

Stephen Sanchez – Kayla

BUZZING SINGER & SONGWRITER STEPHEN SANCHEZ RELEASES NEW SINGLE KAYLA DEBUT EP PRODUCED BY IAN FITCHUCK [KACEY MUSGRAVES] COMING SOON

 Listen to Kayla HERE

After asserting himself as a modern day troubadour with millions of independent streams and views, buzzing singer and songwriter Stephen Sanchez shares a new single entitled Kayla today via Republic Records. Listen to KaylaHERE.

Stephen wrote the tune 100% solo but recruited Ian Fitchuck [Kacey Musgraves] for production in Nashville. As the story goes, he had just gotten out of a relationship and penned the tune about a female friend, Kayla, who he’d long harbored unspoken feelings for. She loved the song, but had moved away. Now, this story of unrequited love paves the way for his upcoming debut EP executive produced by Fitchuck. On the track, pedal steel wraps around delicately picked acoustic guitar as Stephen’s voice rings out with raw emotion on the hook, Won’t you lie next to me, oh Kayla.

On the track Stephen Said, I wrote Kayla while sitting alone in my bedroom thinking about this girl (Kayla) I had a thing for 2 years ago. I wanted to write her this song because at the time she didn’t see all the wonder I saw in her. I wanted to capture that wonder in hopes that maybe she’d see it for herself someday. With this song I hope people are brought back to a child-like innocence all love has at its core and that the lyrics would ‘hit-home’ enough for someone to look at love with a little more heart.

Next up, he takes the stage at Bonnaroo this fall, which marks the first time he’s not only playing a festival, but also attending one!

18-year-old Stephen Sanchez pens the kind of tunes that resonate in any era. They’d work just as well on social media as they would at Woodstock. He introduced himself with his independent debut single Lady By The Sea, racking up 4 million Spotify streams, 2 million views and 480K likes on TikTok, and received plugs from mega-creators a la Spencer X, Abigail Barlow, and Jenna Raine.

The success landed him a deal with Republic Records, and he’ll be unveiling more new music very soon.

Madeline The Person – As A Child

INTRODUCING BRAND NEW ARTIST MADELINE THE PERSON

PEEK INTO HER WORLD WITH WARNER RECORDS DEBUT

“AS A CHILD”  – WATCH THE VIDEO HERE

FIRST CHAPTER IN COLLECTION OF PERSONAL STORIES TO BE RELEASED ON DEBUT EP NEXT MONTH

Alt Pop wunderkind Madeline the Person invites you to Personville, her rainbow-colored art emporium where all humans & all feelings are welcome to express themselves. The Houston, Texas native, who has spent the last year building a significant following on TikTok through her soulful covers of everyone from Frank Ocean, Phoebe Bridgers, Harry Styles and Lizzo to Joni Mitchell, Brandi Carlile and Queen, has emerged as a powerful antidote to conformity with her deeply personal debut single As a Child,” out today on Warner Records.  Listen to As A Child” HERE and watch the video HERE.

The 19-year-old, who inked a deal with Warner Records over a monochromatic Zoom meeting, lives her life boldly and loudly, confecting a universe where creativity reigns. From making her own clothes and jewelry and dying her hair a spectrum of colors to directing short films and painting, Madeline the Person has found a litany of ways to show that there are no limits to expressing yourself. With the release of “As a Child,” she does just that, countering her optimistic exterior with a tender ballad that grapples with the crippling emotional weight of losing a parent at a young age. 

She explains: “The difference in the way that I express my personality versus my music, I think that has to do with my belief in the fact that all emotions are equally important. With my music, I’m trying to normalize the sad and hard and really gross stuff and make it more acceptable and less scary, because to me, as a person, I am all of those things combined. I’m super sad and also really happy and joyful and grateful. I have a lot of emotions and I don’t like to boil it down to just a few. I like to show lots of facets at a time and sometimes, that creates a juxtaposition that I think makes it kind of cool.”

Madeline the Person already struck a chord on social media by being true to herself, showcasing her incredible talent across platforms and accruing a robust legion of devotees. Since launching her TikTok account in early 2020, she’s amassed nearly 300,000 followers and 5 million likes on the platform.   She first shared “As a Child” with fans on TikTok last year – the clip has over 1.1M views, 300K likes and more than 13K shares.  It also landed her in the DMs with some of pop’s new elite.

While music was at the forefront of Madeline’s upbringing, learning piano at the tender age of four & guitar shortly after, it was the loss of her father a few years ago that pushed her to write without holding back, to feel every feeling. In her journey through unimaginable grief, Madeline continued to flourish as a songwriter, unafraid to share every part of herself in her music, be it splashy and exuberant or contemplative and sad. 

Following her debut with “As a Child,” Madeline the Person will guide us through her human experience in a series of musical chapters disguised as EPs set to release through 2021, the first of which will arrive next month.  It’s page one in the story of Madeline the Person, who already shines as bright as the future that lies ahead.
