6LACK × 6 PC HOT

Right after summer officially hits, 6LACK (LVRN/Interscope Records) serves up his newest EP 6 PC HOT for the world. It features production from Timbaland, Fwdslxsh, Gravez, STWO, and more as well as one guest feature from Lil Baby. Aside from the music, he has a lot of news to announce as well.

Fans can enter an augmented reality chicken shop pictured on the EP cover via Instagram to view merch, including the hot sauce, tied to the project. It can be found by searching “6pc hot” in the IG filter search menu. A link to the filter is available HERE (to be opened on a phone). Once selected, a 3D shop will launch through the camera to share pictures and videos. The AR shop was created by Jackie Carlise, a 3D motion designer who recently graduated from School of The Art institute of Chicago. She created it using the Spark AR platform.

For Atlanta fans, 6LACK has partnered with Postmates, the leader in delivering nearly anything on-demand, and local favorite restaurant Goodfellas, a Black-owned business, as a part of his 6LACK on Black Business initiative. Exclusively on Postmates this weekend, customers can order a custom 6LACK wing item from Goodfellas for $6. Through Sunday June 28, customers who order the 6pc Hot wings meal will receive a free bottle of 6LACK’s new hot sauce “600 Degrees.”

For Los Angeles fans, 6LACK will be sending his new hot sauce directly to their doors starting 6/29 via a friendly robot. You can sign up for a delivery day and time through 6LACKBOX.

6LACK is also showing love to Australia by working with Butter, which will also be delivering custom orders of 6 hot wings. The first 60 fans will also receive a special t-shirt.

In addition to local fans in different parts of the world, 6LACK is looking to help aspiring Black entrepreneurs by presenting a handful of them with 6LACKCARDS. These will be Amazon gift cards to purchase any equipment and supplies to help get their dreams off the ground. After 6LACK collected over 25K addresses in under an hour through his 6LACKBOX “6PC Scratch and Win” folder, he sent fans a classic scratch-off lottery-styled ticket which they should receive this week. It reveals the tracklist to the EP, the date of release, and the chance to be one of the select few to win physical prizes.

The 6LACKBOX has also been updated with resources like voter registration tools and a contact sheet for Black businesses. A Black author history reading list and access to social justice reform information and participating organizations will also soon be available. 6LACKBOX was announced alongside his open letter to his fans regarding the social unrest stemming from the murders of innocent Black men and women. Inside the 6LACKBOX, you’ll find snippets of unreleased music, the East Atlanta Love Letter movie that he premiered at his album release event at Starlight Drive-In Theatre in East Atlanta, never before seen photos, and more. It will also contain some content leading up to his upcoming third studio album.

For those who still have cookouts to prepare for during the warmer months or also need a new hot sauce for the collection, 6LACK will be releasing his own hot sauce brand, “600 Degrees.” It’ll be the perfect addition to your own 6 pieces of wings as you listen to the new project.

Pronounced “Black,” the alternative R&B and three-time GRAMMY-nominated rapper/singer/songwriter has long considered the number six as a central part to his identity for several reasons: he was raised in Zone 6 of Atlanta, it’s his life path number, and also the name of his daughter (Syx). In 2018, 6LACK released his sophomore album and now certified Gold East Atlanta Love Letter to critical acclaim and peaked at #3 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Top R&B Albums. He’s the #2 most streamed R&B artist behind Frank Ocean, and his debut project Free 6LACK is now certified Platinum. 6LACK has been the most featured artist of 2019-2020 with over 30 features. Last week he teamed up with JID, Earthgang, and Mereba to form supergroup Spillage Village, who just released “End of Dayz.”

NEW CITY x GETTING CLOSER

Today, Genre-blending Toronto-based trio NEW CITY release a brand new single, “Getting Closer,” along with its lyric video: WATCH HERE. This the band’s first release since signing with Mosely Music Group/Capitol Records.

This release follows the exciting news that the band will make their U.S. live debut with a School Night show at Bardot in Los Angeles on April 9. 

“Getting Closer” comes at a crucial time for NEW CITY in their evolution, reflecting on where they came from and looking towards where they are headed. A declaration of empowerment for the band and anyone else working towards their dreams. « It’s about breaking yourself down and putting everything on the table, but still feeling lost,” lead-singer Adrian Mitchell explains about the new song, “It reflects the ways we’ve found ourselves as a band and can talk about bigger topics. At first, we wrote about the things we wanted and desired, but now our writing is starting to reflect what our purpose actually is and what we’re looking for in the future. “The track was written and co-produced by the band themselves, alongside longtime collaborator, Fede Vindver, who produced “Dirty Secrets” and co-produced “Coachella.”

Just last year, NEW CITY released their first-ever song, « Coachella,” a summertime anthem about the Indio, California music festival. The track has since amassed almost two million streams, with Clash magazine declaring it a “perfect pop confection.” The music video for the track, sees the band channeling party atmosphere of the desert festival – despite never having been. The follow-up, deep house-inflected “Dirty Secrets,” was the #1 Most Added single at Canadian Pop Radio. The song entered the Canadian radio chart at number 22, jumping seven spots in just two weeks and clearing four million streams, “With the irresistible pop sensibilities of New City,” wrote Billboard, “they are a secret you’ll want to share.”

Shortly after the release of “Dirty Secrets, “NEW CITY’s hybrid-pop sound borrowing from pop, rhythmic and EDM influences caught the attention of Grammy-winning multiplatinum super producer, Timbaland, and his manager Gary Marella who inked the band to Mosley Music Group imprint alongside Capitol Records stateside. “These guys are incredibly talented and have what it takes to be superstars,” Timbaland states. Stay tuned for more to come from NEW CITY.”

ABOUT NEW CITY:

NEW CITY – made up of Adrian Mitchell (vocals), Jed Webster (guitar, programming) and Nathan Brown (drums, programming) -are unapologetic about being young, free, and in pursuit of a good time. Formed in 2017, out of two separate projects. Webster and Brown are lifelong friends who grew up together in the small farming community of Sussex, New Brunswick; Webster’s dad fed him a steady diet of blues guitar heroes (Stevie Ray Vaughan, BB King, Muddy Waters), while Brown was more focused on rock groups before discovering electronic music in high school. The pair took a big leap and moved to Toronto, sleeping on a basement floor for two years and working on music every day. They met R&B fan Mitchell, who was born in Oro-Medonte in central Ontario, trying to make it as a solo artist, at a hotel party and quickly joined forces.
