Quavo of the migos releases new music via 360 MAGAZINE

Quavo × Takeoff

Delivering the kind of Atlanta anthem that moves the whole culture, multiplatinum GRAMMY® Award-nominated superstars Quavo and Takeoff unleash a blockbuster new single and music video entitled “Us Vs Them” featuring Gucci Mane—available today via Quality Control Music Group/Motown Records. Listen to “Us Vs Them” HERE and watch the music video for “Us Vs Them” HERE.

The track pairs a skittering trap bounce with unforgettable sirens. It sets the stage for Quavo and Takeoff to lock into an unbreakable and unbeatable lyrical volley highlighted by hilarious observations such as “Came from nothing, now my Lambo look like dolphin fins.” It all builds towards the victorious chant, “Fuck that other shit, I’m going for the win.” Meanwhile, Atlanta hip-hop legend Gucci Mane pulls up with a powerhouse verse of his own. The accompanying visual alternates between scenes in a parking garage and on a basketball court as fireworks rain from the ceiling, popping off with uncontainable energy.

It arrives on the heels of “Hotel Lobby.” The latter has already generated 22.8 million YouTube views on the Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas-inspired music video and 39.6 million Spotify streams and counting. Earning critical acclaim right out of the gate, Billboard proclaimed, “‘Hotel Lobby’ impresses with a natural camaraderie that the members demonstrated on their early mixtapes, as Takeoff handles the denser flow and Quavo gleefully punctuating every fifth word with another ad-lib.” Not to mention, the duo performed it as part of A COLORS SHOW, posting up 1.3 million Spotify streams and 3.3 million YouTube views on the video as the first in a series celebrating Black Music Month created in collaboration with Motown Records.

However, this is just the beginning for Quavo and Takeoff…

Takeoff recently dropped off “Crypto” with Rich The Kid. It has already amassed over 8.4 million Spotify streams and 6 million YouTube views on the music video. Receiving critical acclaim, HYPEBEAST proclaimed, “the new single sees the Migos rapper embrace his love for cryptocurrency and the fortune that it has brought him.”

Meanwhile, Quavo served up the intense “Shooters Inside My Crib.” It posted up 8.6 million Spotify streams and 7.8 million YouTube views on the music video. Touted among the “Soundsystem 50,” High Snobiety observed, “Quavo skates over the Ayo-B-produced beat effortlessly teasing us about an upcoming project.” REVOLT added, “‘Shooters Inside My Crib’sees the North Atlanta star harmonizing about past struggles and current successes.” Sports Illustrated summed it up best as “an absolute banger.” Not to mention, he joined NBA2K22 as a playable character and will star in a new action thriller Takeover.

Finn Askew – Tokyo

Finn Askew will release his debut EP, Tokyo, on November 5 via Capitol Records. As the pre-order for the six-track set launched, the 20-year-old UK artist shared the title track. Delivered in his signature thumping trap-rock style, “Tokyo” tells the story of a high maintenance, emotionally distant woman. Download/stream HERE. Watch this visualizer HERE.

“Like many of my songs, I came up with the title ‘Tokyo’ before I’d even written it,” explains Finn Askew. “The main lyric being ‘she’s in tokyo again’ ߝ in reality, I’m talking about a girl who’s disconnected from the world, she’s out of touch.”

Askew, a VEVO DSCVR Artist to Watch 2021, will be touring the UK with Mimi Webb this fall. He’ll play his first headline show on November 10 at London’s Courtyard Theatre. Fans who pre-order his new EP will instantly receive “Tokyo” plus the blistering trio of singles he’s released in recent months: “Adidas,” “Paranoia” and “Cherry Bomb.” See below for track listing.

“This EP is really delving into who I am as an artist,” says Askew, whose songs have amassed over 142 million combined global streams to date. “I feel like with the first EP I wanted to show people that I can really do any genre! You can’t really go back once you cement your sound. So this EP is the start of Finn Askew.”

Praise for “Adidas”

Including “Adidas” as one of its “R&B/Hip-Hop Fresh Picks,” Billboard said, “Finn Askew’s new, guitar-anchored song is super catchy, and that’s how he likes it.”Rolling Stone AU noted, “‘Adidas’ is a slick undertaking of smart pop-rock, with powerful guitar riffs and a hook-heavy chorus highlighting his musical versatility.” Acid Stag observed, “Finn Askew continues to show why he’s considered one of the most promising artists going around with his ridiculously catchy new single ‘Adidas.'” View the official video for “Adidas” HERE.

Tay Money – The Assignment

Tay Money flexes on a fiery new track entitled “The Assignment”. Fueled by a skittering bounce, Tay eases into her confident and charismatic bars with an announcement, “I understood the assignment”. Ahead of its release, the track has already made its rounds on TikTok with over 280K videos and climbing. 

“The Assignment” is available now at all digital retailers. Listen HERE.

Tay Money upholds her red-hot streak this summer. In July, she made her U.S. major festival debut with a standout set at Rolling Loud Miami, bringing the crowd to its feet. “The Assignment” arrives on the heels of a string of summer anthems including tracks “Shake” and “Asthma Pump” which both feature the unfiltered lyrics and attitude that have made the Dallas artist one to watch. Having been featured on the digital cover of ELEVATOR, and hailed by FLAUNT as “one of the hardest female rappers of our generation,” Tay’s in the midst of a hot streak that stretches back to the release of Blockedt. She made that EP with heavyweights like Derrick Milano (a co-writer on Megan Thee Stallion’s “Hot Girl Summer”) and Bankroll Got It (producers of hits like “DO DAT” by Stunna 4 Vegas featuring DaBaby & Lil Baby)—collaborations that fed into the boundary-pushing energy of her tracks since. “Shake” showcases an exciting new side of Tay’s style, highlighting her ability to craft emotionally stirring songs while still sticking to her favorite topic―flaunting her assets.

About Tay Money

In just over two years, Tay Money, the Athens-born, Dallas-based rapper has racked up millions of views and streams thanks to her witty punchlines and unique musical approach. Her debut song, “Na Na” marked the beginning of her career as an artist and set the tone for the originality that she would bring to the rest of her records to come. Within months of her first release, she was selling out shows in Dallas and had gained a cult-like following among her listeners (now dubbed Tay Army). 

With her bouncy trap beats, unmistakable Texas twang, and unapologetically catchy rhymes, Tay began to reach commercial success with her breakout song “Trapper’s Delight” in 2018. With what was originally a risky move to expand her music outside the limits of her hometown of Dallas, the video for “Trapper’s Delight” amassed over 1.1 million views in under two months. Since then, she’s continued to release many more viral hits including “Bussin” (11 million YouTube views), “Bussin 2.0” with Saweetie (7 million YouTube views), and “Brat” featuring Mulatto, two of which are on her recently released EP, Blockedt. The widely acclaimed project led to many defining moments for Tay, landing spots on coveted playlists including Spotify’s New Music Friday, Feelin Myself, and Release Radar as well as Apple Music’s The Plug and New In Hip Hop. The project also received praise from FLAUNT who hailed her as “one of the biggest women rappers in Texas”, SPIN who noted that she was “one of the biggest women rappers in Texas”, and ELEVATOR who named her their February cover star. Now, with the cosigns of some of the biggest up-and-coming female rappers, and having surpassed the milestone of over 100 million U.S. streams, Tay plans to build on her momentum with her forthcoming EP.

Tokischa and Rosalia’s new hit single “Linda,” has been trending, with the music video becoming #1 in the world. Here’s what people are writing. 

Mitu said, “Tokischa & Rosalía’s Worlds Collide in a flirty and fierce club banger. “A hard-hitting [but] vibrant and bouncy new single… dropped [with] a stylish music video filmed in the Dominican Republic” wrote Complex. “To no one’s surprise, it’s an absolute bop from start to finish that showcases the talent of both women while delivering something fresh and an equally noteworthy sound” raved Remezcla. Consequence stated, “The Spanish superstar and polarizing Dominican up-and-comer… deliver a snappy, sexy number…  and steamy music video…that’s as uncompromising as the musicians themselves.”

“Rosalía and Tokischa vindicate ‘uncomfortable’ feminism in their new song, Linda,”  El Mundo stated. 

Many more publications have been speaking very highly of this dance banger. You can find the song HERE and watch the music video HERE

About Tokischa

Tokischa is a rising talent who deconstructs the perceptions and norms surrounding women’s roles. Her style is raw, authentic trap that few artists dare to pursue. In her world, there is no fear of showing society what she does, what she likes and who she is. She promotes a way of life that’s free from hypocrisy and gender stereotypes. Her vocal tone is instantly identifiable and is another major factor in making her songs distinctive. 

About Rosalia

Rosalia is a Grammy & Eight-Time Latin Grammy Winner who has quickly “leapt to the forefront of the global pop landscape” on the strength of her innovative musical fusions and distinctive style.  She has repeatedly shattered barriers for both female and Spanish language artists, while being widely hailed as: “a complicated geniusreflecting femininity and strength… a new generation leader… making Flamenco a global phenomenon… while becoming Earth’s Most Exciting Pop Star.” With the May 2018 release of Rosalía’s innovative breakthrough single “Malamente (Cap.1: Augurio)”-and the fall arrival of her landmark album “El Mal Querer,” fans worldwide quickly embraced Rosalía’s phenomenal vocal capability meshed with her now fully realized fusion of classic Flamenco and other timeless music styles of Spain, with R&B, hip-hop, contemporary Latin-American rhythms and electronic beats. Coupled with Rosalía’s strong influences from industrial visual arts, female empowerment, fashion and choreography, it became clear to critics that: “El Mal Querer is a boundary-breaking modern masterpiece… that has resonated like a shockwave… it stands out from virtually everything else on the global pop landscape.” As a result of the album’s long-running impact, and additional 2019 singles that followed, Rosalia garnered a GRAMMY Award, standout GRAMMY performance, the historic first-ever Best New Artist Grammy nomination for a Spanish Language artist, and eight Latin Grammys, including Album of the Year. Additional acclaim has included two MTV VMA’s, multiple magazine covers-including the annual Sunday New York Times Magazine’s special Culture Cover, highly praised Coachella and Lollapalooza festival appearances, the most watched global YouTube video of 2019 for a female artist, and “Best Music of the Decade” picks from Rolling Stone, Billboard, GQ, The LA Times, Pitchfork and more. While Rosalía has spent a large majority of the last year immersed in the creative process of writing and recording her eagerly-awaited next album, she also finalized landmark brand partnerships with Nike and MAC’s “Viva Glam” campaign, lead the field of LATIN GRAMMY winners for the second year in a row, joined Travis Scott, Bad Bunny, the Weeknd and Billie Eilish all on massive streaming collaborative tracks, and became the first-ever all-Spanish language music artist to grace the cover of VOGUE in the United States, with the unveiling of the January 2021 “Vogue Values” issue, photographed by Annie Leibovitz. Now, Rolling Stone has already declared her upcoming next full-length release as “One of the Most Anticipated Albums of the Year.”

Rob49 – 4 God

Buzzing New Orleans artist Rob49 delivers his widely anticipated full-length project 4 God. The masterfully produced body of work features Rob’s signature Louisiana slang, delivered with a gruff musical cadence that is a refreshingly new sound out of New Orleans–shot through with the velocity of contemporary trap styles. 4 God’ is out now on all digital retailers HERE.

About Rob49 

Rob49 arrived on the scene fully-formed, as though he’d been practicing for his first studio session his whole life. The deep-voiced New Orleans artist started rapping officially only a short while ago, but you wouldn’t know it—already people are calling him “baby Soulja Slim” for his magnetic presence and confidence on the mic. Listening to songs like the local anthem “Pent House,” it’s clear these sorts of accolades are earned. Across his propulsive flows, Rob raps with a natural energy and an easy assuredness, putting on for his neighborhood and remembering those he’s lost.

From early in his life, Rob49 had the DIY mentality instilled in him. Born in New Orleans in 1999, and growing up at the intersection of projects in the 4th and 9th Wards (that’s where the “49” in his rap handle comes from), Rob had to adapt to the harsh realities of his environment on his own, part of where the energy in his music originates. That energy has translated to co-signs from Say Cheese founder Shawn Cotton and Mississippi State basketball star Lamar Peters. Since his first studio session, he’s put in work, culling beats from YouTube and local producers. In 2020 alone he put out three propulsive tapes—4our the World, Vulture, and Krazy Man—building buzz in his city. It’s no mystery: on each project he sounds unbelievably poised and possessed by the beat, breathlessly digging into stories about his hood and come-up.

Li Heat – Heatin’ Up

After racking up millions of views and streams independently and attracting cosigns from the likes of Young Thug, Gucci Mane, and more, viral rap phenomenon Li Heat unleashes his new mixtape, Heatin Up. Along with the full project, an official video for “Victim” with Li Heat and Big 30 is out now. The Niles Bryant directed visual is a high-energy showcase of the duo’s combined lyrical skills.

To listen to the mixtape, click HERE

The project showcases his growth as a red-hot artist-to-watch. Among multiple bangers, it boasts his breakout anthem “007,” which has amassed over 5 million YouTube views on its official music video and north of 1 million streams.

Additionally, Heatin Up flaunts fan favorites such as the wild “Young & Turnt” and his most recent drop “Intro.” Elsewhere on the project, he leans into airy keys on the proud Alabama anthem “Crimson Tide” [feat. Big Yayo] where he namechecks Crimson Tide heroes like DeVonta Smith. Everything concludes on “Bows” [feat. Manny Major]. He and Manny Major launch a lyrical crossfire accelerated by rapid fire cadences and tense production. With no shortage of rambunctious delivery, trap-flavored energy, and Alabama grit, it illuminates his rhyme prowess and cements him as a force to be reckoned with.

About Li Heat

Hailing from Birmingham, AL, Li Heat is the latest viral rap phenomenon poised to take over the industry’s new wave. Heat originally gained notoriety for his track “007”, an instant viral success and his biggest single to date. The rambunctious, trap-flavored, warm tune has now amassed more than two million views since uploaded to YouTube on May 27. The song’s simple, yet catchy setup has made fans out of everyone, including Young Thug and Gucci Mane (who he’s since collaborated with). 

Li Heat’s style is catchy, bare-bones, and instantly memorable. He lists his inspirations as NoCap, Rylo Rodriguez, Tee Grizzley, Luh Soldier, and Lil Baby, incorporating traces of their influences into his rap style in a way that boldly creates its own, unique niche in rap’s crowded culture. It’s both familiar and yet different enough to make you intrigued. Now with the release of his debut project, which traces his growth as a musician, the Alabama-bred lyricist is on the verge of dominating the airwaves after only being in the industry for less than a year.

Masego – Studying Abroad: Extended Stay

Masego will release Studying Abroad: Extended Stay, the deluxe edition of his 2020 EP, via EQT Recordings and Capitol Records. The collection includes five new tracks.

Studying Abroad: Extended Stay leads off with the EP’s original six tracks, which find Masego walking the listener through every phase of a relationship, from its blissful beginnings to its tragic ending.

Hailed as a “musical polyglot” by the Los Angeles Times, Masego is a singular talent and surprising presence as a saxophone player, a singer, a rapper, a comedian and a DJ. Lady Lady, his 2018 debut album, put him on the map. “Tadow,” the lead single, has surpassed half a billion global streams and been certified Gold by the RIAA. Since the album’s release, Masego has toured the world, headlining sold-out tours and starring on festival stages across every continent but Antartica. He recently contributed a new song, “Somethin’ Ain’t Right” (feat. JID and Rapsody), to Judas and the Black Messiah: The Inspired Album.
