MILES × LØLØ – THE INTERNET

LA-based singer/songwriter and rapper MILES unveiled his new single, “THE INTERNET,” featuring LA by-way-of Toronto pop-punk artist LØLØ. Punctuated by bouncy guitars, breezy beats and a melodic flow, the track is a sunny anthem leading into the summer season. Listen HERE. The accompanying music video is also out and highlights the challenges of dating in the modern era. Of the song’s inspiration, MILES explained with a laugh, “It’s about scrolling online during quarantine, seeing beautiful women, and knowing there’s no chance.” Watch the new visual HERE.

Of the new collaboration, LØLØ added, “I got connected with MILES through my manager and label, and we instantly hit it off in a session. A few weeks later, I saw him tease a song concept on TikTok, and I made a duet to it, without thinking too much into it. He saw it, felt there was something there, and we got back into the studio and actually turned it into a collab.

MILES creates big, high-energy tracks that people can relate to when navigating life and relationships. Early Rising called “MISS INDEPENDENT,” MILES’ first-released single of 2022, a “brilliant feel-good track that continues his exciting trajectory to becoming a household name,” while MUD Magazine praised his “unique sound” that is setting him up to be “one of [their] favorite artists.” MILES is also currently in the studio working on new original music, slated for release this summer. Stay tuned for more to come.

About MILES

MILES’ story might be almost as wild as his fusion of breezy hip-hop, earthshaking pop, and grimy rock. The St. Louis-born and Los Angeles-based singer and rapper bobs and weaves past genre lines with an unpredictable and undeniable style of his own. Predestining their son for music, mom and dad named him in homage to jazz icon Miles Davis. In turn, MILES cranked his old man’s jazz records as well as Kirk Franklin, Bill Withers, Lauryn Hill, Black Eyed Peas and Lil Wayne. Slowly, but surely, MILES developed a following online before cooking up “WHAT IN TARNATION” (2020) back in St. Louis. Beyond inspiring thousands of TikTok videos, it raked in millions of streams as he signed to Elektra Records. He maintained his momentum with the captivating, high-energy follow-up singles “DESPERADOS” and “MOSH PIT.” His new releases with Elektra kickstart a new era for this exciting artist to watch.

About LØLØ

Born and raised in Toronto and now calling LA home, LØLØ has become an undeniable presence in the pop-punk genre. The singer-songwriter has created a striking presence both online and on stage with her effortlessly cool attitude and sharp lyricism. In 2020, LØLØ created a buzz on TikTok where she reimagined music’s biggest hits. Putting her adept lyrical skills to use, she rewrote verses from the opposite perspective of the song’s subject, while still maintaining the original integrity of each song’s tempo and rhyme scheme. Most notably, her take on Taylor Swift‘s “Betty” from “Betty’s Perspective” caught the attention of Swifties and went viral on the platform. In late 2021, LØLØ released her electric EP overkill, which came directly on the heels of her 36-stop US tour with pop-punk titans New Found Glory and Less Than Jake. LØLØ has been compared to Paramore and Avril Lavigne by Billboard, as well as receiving critical acclaim from Paper Magazine, MTV, Kerrang!, American Songwriter, Ones to Watch, Alternative Press, and many more. People Magazine called her an “Emerging Artist making their mark in music” and to date she’s amassed over 35 million streams on Spotify with her numbers continuing to climb exponentially.

Rita Ora – Finish Line

“Finish Line,” performed by global superstar Rita Ora and written by award-winning songwriter Diane Warren, was released across all music streaming platforms and is the soundtrack for ESPN‘s upcoming four-part Title IX docuseries, 37 Words. A true passion project across the company, ABC Owned Television Stations’ race and culture team played a pivotal role in securing the song and was part of a majority-women-led team responsible for the creative vision of the “Finish Line” music video. An exclusive clip of the music video premiered Sunday, May 15, during ABC’s American Idol. Emmy Award-winning producer and host Ryan Seacrest interviewed both Ora and Warren live.

“Finish Line” is a women empowerment anthem that will support “37 Words,” a four-part ESPN docuseries from documentary filmmakers Dawn Porter and Nicole Newnham, as part of The Walt Disney Company‘s Fifty/50 initiative led by ESPN. The Fifty/50 initiative commemorates the 50th anniversary of the passing of Title IX, the federal civil rights law that prohibits sex-based discrimination in any educational institution receiving federal funding and gave women the equal opportunity to play. 

“I knew that I wanted to be a part of the Fifty/50 initiative because it celebrates the 50-year anniversary passing of Title IX,” said multi-award-winning songwriter Diane Warren. “This powerful initiative inspired me to write ‘Finish Line’ as an uplifting anthem that reminds us to never give up the fight. It may be 50 years since the law was passed, but we are still pushing for the fundamental human right of equality. Rita Ora understood the message of never giving up within this song. She sang it so movingly with the conviction it needed.”  

“I love working with Diane. She is such a brilliant songwriter and collaborating with her is always a joy,” said global superstar Rita Ora. “When she brought this song to me, I was so moved by the lyrics and the passion they evoked and knew instantly that I had to be involved with the project. The fight for women’s equality is a global issue. Every day, women around the world are fighting to be seen, heard and respected. We must continue to work to empower one another as we strive to make equality a reality for women in every part of the world.”

“As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Title IX across The Walt Disney Company, it is a true gift to have two such prolific, powerhouse artists as Rita Ora and Diane Warren contribute their talent and passion to a song that celebrates and encourages girls and women around the country,” said Debra O’Connell, president of Networks for Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution. “‘Finish Line’ is a fantastic and empowering anthem, brought to life by an extraordinary and inspiring group of women. I’m incredibly proud of this collaboration and thrilled to showcase it on our Networks as part of the Fifty/50 initiative.”

YGTUT – Thinkin Bout

Rising Tennessee rapper YGTUT releases new single “Thinkin Bout” via Same Plate Entertainment. The new song will be part of his new album, In My Head, due June 9th which includes previously released singles “New Medallion” and “Dolla $igns.” Produced by Jared White, this new track highlights TUT’s compelling storytelling and honesty. Listen to “Thinkin Bout” HERE.

Here is what the artist had to say: ‘”Thinkin Bout” is about knowing when you’re dealing with a person that you can’t trust. It’s about thinking when people are really with you when they’re not. In this new album, I’m taking it up another taste level and bringing the message that it’s okay if you don’t have everything figured out.”

About YGTUT

Born and raised in Chattanooga, TN, YGTUT is a son of a preacher and has been surrounded by music since he was young. The emerging rapper fuses genres like R&B, Soul etc. into his music and incorporates numerous live instruments into the production—the latter a reflection of his southern roots and the live music scene in Tennessee. In 2010, TUT co-founded the collective TheHouse with TDE’s Isaiah Rashad—a force putting Chattanooga on the musical map since, and that recently released their collective project, “The House Presents: The Set” earlier this year.  TUT announced his arrival on the scene in 2015, via his critically acclaimed debut project, Preacher’s Son, receiving praise from Pitchfork, HYPEBEAST and more. That project was followed by the release of Four Two Three in 2017, his I.O.U. EP in 2019 and the singles “Bootleggers” and “Chattanooga Vendetta” in 2020. Most recently, TUT connected with Isaiah Rashad for the track “Chad” off Rashad’s new album, The House Is Burning, followed by “Dolla Signs” in December 2021.

FLO – Cardboard Box

London-based girl group FLO releases the acoustic video for their buzzing single “Cardboard Box.” 

Watch the acoustic video for “Cardboard Box” HERE and the official video HERE. In the video, they showcase their love for honeyed harmonies and rich emotion, fusing the classic old school R&B they still obsess over.

When British girl group FLO broke onto the music scene with “Cardboard Box,” their fearless debut single and official video that has captured the essence of a group at the helm of their music and visual identity, the world took note. Receiving love from global superstars including Missy Elliot, SZA, Victoria Monet and JoJo, with one tweet stating “the uk girl groups are coming hard,” featuring a clip of “Cardboard Box,” has led to over 3 million views.

Already receiving critical praise from, i-D, NME, Complex, and more, “Cardboard Box” is a staggering introduction to the world of FLO. The lyrics are harmonized over an immaculate MNEK production that fuses early ‘00s R&B, complete with irreplaceable-esque guitar figures and dancehall flavors. With an ethos of self-love, female empowerment and supporting women in music, FLO have already built a loyal fanbase on TikTok (over 150k followers and  4.1m likes) having been called “the future of R&B” (Complex) for their stripped back acapella sessions, giving new life to their favorite tunes with unbreakable chemistry.

FLO’s origin story speaks to their name—it flowed. Stella spent the first few years of her life in Mozambique before moving to the UK aged five, and met Renée at school in London, where they bonded over their joint love of singing and were familiar with Jorja via social media. Jorja was born in Germany and grew up in Hertfordshire and was on her own musical journey, but it was a chance meeting at an audition where they all locked eyes: “I saw the girls and we screamed across the room. I knew from that moment we were about to start something big,” says Jorja.

For the past two years FLO have honed everything from their sound to their look (“Us but elevated,” as Stella succinctly puts it), working with the likes of LOXE (Grammy-nominated, NAO), KABBA, Aston Rudi (Mahalia), newcomer Jamal Woon, and KAYTRANADA collaborator Lauren Faith. The sisterly bond within FLO runs deep, having all been raised by powerful single mothers and understanding the gravity, hustle and tenacity of picking this career path. It is clear that FLO’s natural bond is crystalline, and the life situations they are beginning to navigate have only brought them closer and stronger together. Join the story NOW of our next big homegrown girl group.

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.”
