But in the end…Who Will Reign? 

Marvel Comics’ Avengers Forever pulls together archeologist Tony Stark aka the Invincible Ant-Man and Avengers from across the multiverse to bring order to timelines where hope is a four letter word. Jason Aaron and Aaron Kuder present an all-new series that will redefine the Avengers as…the Multiverse’s Mightiest Heroes.

Jed MacKay, Kev Walker, Joe Bennett, Mark Bagley and more provide a first look at what’s coming to the Marvel Universe in 2022 in a story that will prove…the Future is Timeless. 

House of X and Powers of X ushered in The First Krakoan Age of the X-Men. Now, Marvel Comics’ X Lives of Wolverine and X Deaths of Wolverine will test ‘the best there is at what he does’ before any mutant can survive to The Second Krakoan Age. Benjamin Percy, Joshua Cassara and Federico Vicentini tell two interlocked tales about what happens to Wolverine when…His Pasts Meet His Future.  

Marvel Comics’ She-Hulk, from Rainbow Rowell and Rogê Antônio, throws the book at Jennifer Walters as she tries to put her rage-filled days behind her and return to practicing law in defense of the innocent. But when a friend from her past comes knocking with a mystery she can’t resist, She-Hulk gets…Back To Bashing.

Kuttem Reese – Industry Music

KUTTEM REESE GOES HARD ON NEW SINGLE INDUSTRY MUSIC

Riding high with millions of streams and widespread acclaim, Kuttem Reese’s breakout summer continues. The buzzing Orlando rapper unleashes his latest single Industry Music today. The song will be included in the upcoming Madden NFL 22 video game soundtrack album. 

Listen to Industry MusicHERE.

On the track, trap keys pierce through hypnotic 808s as he launches into an intense flow. The momentum builds towards a bold, brash, and biting hook about the state of the game. 

While everyone else might be making Industry Music, Kuttem Reese is making music for the culture…

Thus far, his 15-track debut mixtape, Kutt Dat Boy, has tallied north of 5 million total streams and counting. Inspiring tastemaker applause, XXL Magazine described him as polished and well-formed.

He initially bulldozed a path for the record with No Statements [feat. Lil Durk], which has clocked over 1.7 million Spotify streams. HotNewHipHop christened it extremely hard-hitting and went on to praise, Kuttem Reese offers up some dope energy that will make you want to get in the gym and get back on your grind. Meanwhile, Durk comes in with menacing bars that certainly help demonstrate the chemistry between himself and Reese.

About his come-up, HipHopDX praised, yet another artist from Florida is on their way to the big leagues, while the Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers bumped his banger Madden to celebrate their NFC championship win earlier this year.

Kuttem Reese beat the toughest of odds in Orlando, FL by kinetically rapping nonstop. Born and raised in Orlando as the oldest of six kids, he grew up fast. Shortly after Reese’s eighth birthday, his mother went to prison for three years. He and his siblings moved in with his grandmother until mom returned home. Along the way, Reese developed a passion for music. One night, he picked up a microphone and rapped to a friend’s beat in a hotel room. He posted it on Instagram and continued to cut tracks. Following his debut My Story, he dropped a string of successful singles, including Rugrat and Boston Celtics. Within six months since that night in the hotel, he has already put serious numbers on the board with nearly 5 million cumulative YouTube views and 1 million-plus Soundcloud plays in addition to attracting acclaim from Elevator and more. In 2021, he throws down even harder with his debut mixtape for Republic Records.

Morray × Polo G – Trenches (Remix)

MORRAY RELEASES HIS NEW REMIX OF TRENCHES FEATURING POLO G

WATCH TRENCHES (REMIX) FT. POLO G: HERE

BUY/STREAM TRENCHES (REMIX) FT. POLO G: HERE

‘Trenches’, from an album due next week titled Street Sermons, rides the minor chords and trap beats that often accompany antisocial boasts. But while ‘Trenches’ doesn’t ignore gangs, drugs or poverty, Morray also recognizes a community that holds families, neighbors and friends – The New York Times

Few crooning rappers have his polish, resonance, and soul. – SPIN

With only four songs on streaming platforms—all released in 2020—Fayetteville, North Carolina rapper Morray has already proven he’s a hitmaker. His debut single ‘Quicksand’ is undeniable, anchored by the type of hook you get from a Roddy Ricch or Rod Wave song and infused with storytelling and charisma to paint a picture even if you’re unfamiliar with the newcomer. – Pigeons & Planes 

Fresh Off His First-Ever Performance at Rolling Loud, the 2021 XXL Freshman Recruits a Kindred Spirit to Add a Verse to a Street Sermons Highlight

Morray’s emotional singing and empathetic lyrics make him an ideal avatar for those struggling in the streets, and an excellent role model for those looking to make it out. His song Trenches is an ode to people who think they are out of options, urging them to stay positive through the pain. Today, the Fayetteville, NC native shares Trenches (Remix), which adds a verse from Polo G, another street storyteller whose lyrics speak for the less fortunate. The new remix juxtaposes Morray’s gospel-influenced passion with Polo’s plaintive and conversational melodies, the younger rapper spinning a succinct 16 about his rise from tragedy to triumph: Member I was f*cked up, now my foreign in the hood parked/You can beat the system if you street and booksmart, intones Polo G.

Directed by Justice Silvera, the video follows the story of a man who works hard every day to put food on his family’s plates, resisting the clarion call of street life so he can be present for his wife and young daughter. Morray and Polo G provide the perspective of those who’ve escaped their past hardship, but their lyrics prove that men like the video’s protagonist deserve just as much respect as any rap star. Trenches (Remix) is the latest in a long line of quality videos from Morray, most recently the video for Mistakes, a highlight from his debut album Street Sermons.

Debuting at  #41 on the Billboard 200 and propelling Morray to #1 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart, Street Sermons taps into the spiritual uplift and church-trained singing that makes Morray’s brand of hip-hop so unique, taking unflinching looks at the Fayetteville native’s youthful struggles and indiscretions and examining his motivations to succeed. Home to his breakout single Quicksand, which recently earned a GOLD certification from the RIAA and surpassed the 100 million view milestone on YouTube, the project contains universal truths about the tragedies and triumphs of growing up in the hood, filtered through Morray’s experience as a neighborhood kid made good. Complex ranked Street Sermons at #10 on their list of Best Albums of 2021 So Far.

Earlier this summer, Morray earned a position on the coveted XXL Freshman list for 2021. The honor is the latest in a long line of accolades, including one to watch designations from Complex, Billboard, SPIN, Pigeons & Planes, and many more. An engaging live performer, as evidenced by his recent appearance on JImmy Kimmel Live, Morray was highlighted by Rolling Stone as the Best Debut performer at last weekend’s Rolling Loud Festival in Miami.

With Street Sermons and his newfound position as a XXL Freshman, Morray culminates his meteoric rise and proves that he’s ready to build an artistic legacy and a nest egg for his wife and kids. For an artist with Morray’s talent, the sky’s the limit.

Fletcher – Healing

FLETCHER DEBUTS THE OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR EMPOWERED NEW SINGLE HEALING WATCH HERE

FLETCHER debuts the official video for her new single Healing, a powerful anthem to reflect the times, one of self-awareness and discovery. Watch the video HERE and download/stream Healing HERE.

V Magazine said, In stunning new visuals co-directed by Fletcher and Ava Rikki, the rising artist enters a new era. Your next summer anthem has arrived… FLETCHER isn’t just a pop star but an artist and this music video is her testimony. A simplistic trap beat backgrounds (her) airy light vocals as she declares herself on the journey of self love and recovery, unlearning false self perceptions and entering the next phase of a glow-up journey.

Healing finds the acclaimed singer/songwriter reclaiming her interior resolve, making a natural progression from her critically-lauded EP THE S(EX) TAPES, a boldly personal project executive-produced by Malay (Lorde, Frank Ocean). Co-written with Scott Harris (Shawn Mendes, Khalid) and ALDAE (Justin Bieber, Kid Laroi), Healing is rooted in the raw emotional intimacy that FLETCHER is known for and offers her most gripping vocal performance to date.

NME said, ‘Healing’ (is) luminous…An ode to the reclamation of one’s inner strength, the new track shines with a soundscape of warm guitars and summery synth percussion, over which Fletcher boldly embraces her rawness and humanity. Variance declared, If purposeful pop is a thing, FLETCHER’s ‘Healing’ is absolutely it, and Uproxx named the soaring track, Best New Pop Music and said, leaning on a skittering beat, FLETCHER lilts powerful lines about the important of understanding there’s no such thing as a quick fix for your personal problems.

The process of making this song was really freeing, says FLETCHER. We’re all healing from something, she says. The world is healing right now. I can feel the collective energy of people waking up to their power and connecting to themselves in a way that humanity never has before. Healing isn’t a linear process, and it’ll take you on the most insane roller coaster ride of your life. But it’s worth the view at the top.

Currently at work on her debut album, Healing is FLETCHER’s first single since her 2020 hit Bitter, a track that’s amassed over 150 million streams to date. Hailed by Idolator as a breakup anthem for the ages, Bitter is a standout cut from THE S(EX) TAPES, a collection of magnetic and moody pop songs about finding your forever person before you find yourself and, as a result, needing to uncover the parts of you that remain unknown. Soon after arriving last September, the EP earned praise from outlets like Nylon, Teen Vogue, PAPER, SPIN (who noted there aren’t any rules when it comes to FLETCHER’s music) and more.

About FLETCHER

Praised by leading outlets like TIME, Wonderland, V Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, Interview Magazine, GQ, The Guardian and more, FLETCHER hails from Asbury Park, New Jersey, where she cultivated her passion for music and her unforgettably candid storytelling. After graduating from NYU’s famed Clive Davis Institute for Recorded Music, FLETCHER carved out a distinct space for herself in pop music, and in 2019 released her debut EP you ruined new york city for me via Capitol Records. The widely lauded EP features her breakthrough hit Undrunk, a track that spent several weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, scored the #1 spot on Spotify’s Viral Chart, emerged as the fastest-rising song at pop radio from a new artist in the past five years, and earned FLETCHER a nomination for iHeartRadio’s Best New Pop Artist. Over the years, FLETCHER has sold out several headline tours and landed impressive slots at Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Life is Beautiful, and other major festivals. Released in September 2020, FLETCHER’s EP THE S(EX) TAPES hit No. 1 on iTunes across all genres and drew acclaim from outlets like Teen Vogue, SPIN, PAPER, and many others. An unfiltered look into FLETCHER’s world, the EP is a collection of magnetic and moody pop songs about feeling like you’ve found your forever person before you find yourself and, as a result, needing to uncover the parts of you that remain unknown. The EP’s lead single Bitter has now surpassed 150 million global streams. FLETCHER’s television performances include The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Today Show and Ellen. An outspoken activist of the #MeToo movement throughout her career, FLETCHER released the 2018 track I Believe You in support of sexual assault survivors, garnering over 50 million streams to date. She was also recently nominated for a 2021 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Breakthrough Music Artist. One of FLETCHER’s latest tracks, Last Laugh is available now on the soundtrack to the Academy Award-winning film Promising Young Woman.

Carter Ace – The One and Lonely

CARTER ACE RELEASES NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO THE ONE AND LONELY

WATCH HERE

His inclusion of varying genres like old school jams and G-funk into his inventive music combined with the therapeutic nature of his lyrics give listeners a personable feeling that leaves listeners craving more  – Flaunt

…clearly genius to be found within the madness… – British GQ

The first thing I thought when I heard [Carter Ace] was, ‘He sounds like a combination of Anderson Paak and Pharell,’ and then [I realized] that he could even be better than both of them put together. – Magnetic Magazine

Posting up 10 million-plus streams and receiving acclaim from GQ, Flaunt, and more, Cameroonian American singer, songwriter, and rapper Carter Ace releases his brand new single and video The One and Lonely today via Let’s Get It Records/Republic Records.

Listen to The One and Lonely HERE

Watch The One and Lonely HERE

Produced by Kieran Watters [Dizzy Fae, Tinashe], the track captures the punchy power of Carter’s idiosyncratic style. He intensely freestyles over otherworldly keys and psychedelic-spiked riffs courtesy of his guitarist Fahem Erfan and keyboardist John Redwood. The momentum just never relents. The surreal accompanying visual pairs seventies-style vibes with high-octane imagery of Carter wilding out in a dress shirt about 12 sizes too big, staring down paparazzi, and running through the desert. It seamlessly bottles the uncontainable energy of The One and Lonely.

This track is about creating art in the void of loneliness, intensified during the last year with the forced isolation of the pandemic and navigating my growing success. In this void, the pressure to create has turned into a distracting white noise as I recognize that I am truly ‘the One and Lonely.’ As the track morphs static noise into inspirational melodies, I realize I don’t know my purpose, so I might as well enjoy the ride, says Carter Ace on the track.

Rising up out of the San Fernando Valley, Carter Ace initially incited waves through the culture with If It Don’t Work in 2017. A year later, he served up I Think I’m Normal with production by Isom Innis of Foster The People. It notably eclipsed 3.4 million Spotify streams as he buzzed to the forefront of the conversation with features in GQ and Flaunt. Joe Jonas heard his music and immediately reached out, signing him to Let’s Get It Records in conjunction with Republic Records.

Now, Carter formally introduces himself with much more music to come. Get ready!

About Carter Ace

For as much as Carter Ace’s music may draw on international inspiration, the execution of his genre-agnostic alchemy remains damn near intergalactic. The Cameroonian American singer, songwriter, rapper, and artist seamlessly integrates otherworldly R&B, hard-hitting hip-hop, neo-soul drip, space funk, and even a little punk straight from the San Fernando Valley into a simmering signature style cooked up by his equally badass live band. Born in Los Angeles, he split his childhood between the United States and West Africa. With dad an artist and mom a dancer in his band, music surrounded Carter. During middle school in the Valley, he started to perform anywhere and everywhere with a stage, cutting his teeth at all-age venues, restaurants, and underground gigs. At the same time, he studied the likes of OutKast, Kanye West, and D’Angelo. Along the way, he assembled a group of likeminded players (who are with him to this day), including guitarist Fahem Erfan, keyboardist John Redwood, drummer Gio Alford, and bassist Daniel Durant. Grinding nonstop, he started to put up numbers on singles such as If It Don’t Work, I Think I’m Normal, and Come Back 2 Me, landing a deal with Joe Jonas’s Let’s Get It Records and Republic Records during 2020. After generating 10 million streams independently and earning looks from GQ, Flaunt, and more, this buzzing iconoclast continues to bust every sonic border on a series of 2021 singles led by The One and Lonely.

Jawny – The Story of Hugo

JAWNY RELEASES NEW EP THE STORY OF HUGO TODAY

Vans Channel 66 Livestream Performance Set For July 15 at 6pm PST 

LA-based Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist JAWNY shares his new project The Story of Hugo out today via Interscope Records. Available now at all digital retailers.  The Story of Hugo features the recently released track Take It Back which The Fader called a dude’s rock anthem-in-waiting, is built around a jacked riff and baggy verses reminiscent of ‘90s Beck.

Fans can see JAWNY perform songs from The Story of Hugo on the Vans’ new livestream network,  Channel 66.  Channel 66 takes Vans Off The Wall & On The Air, broadcasting live weekdays from New York City, Chicago, Mexico City, and Los Angeles.  Programming celebrates the unique creative culture of each city featuring DJ sets, curated radio shows, talks, workshops and performances hosted by Vans friends & family across music, art, action sports and street culture. Tune in at Vans’ website on Thursday, July 15 at 6pm PST to watch JAWNY’s performance.

The Story of Hugo follows JAWNY’s 2020 major-label debut For Abby, a 10-track conceptual project detailing his attempt at reviving a troubled romance. This time around, JAWNY presents the gut-punching prelude to For Abby, approaching each track with equal parts vulnerability and warped imagination. Featuring four songs and two interludes, the result is an up-close portrait of young love gone awry: boy meets girl, boy sabotages everything, girl moves on, boy deeply, deeply regrets it. 

Tracklist for The Story of Hugo EP by JAWNY:

  1. Hugo Is Born
  2. Best Thing
  3. Take It Back
  4. You Should Watch This One
  5. Tombstone Grey
  6. Can Ya

In addition to the July 15 release of The Story of Hugo EP, JAWNY’s 2019 single Honeypie (which was featured on last year’s For Abby)  continues to reach new streaming heights as we enter the summer months. Two years after its initial release, the song’s streams continue to reach new peaks daily and have increased nearly sevenfold year over year globally. Due in part to a recent sync in Netflix’s hit original drama Ginny and Georgia, Shazams for the track are up 33% over the last month as the song continues to grow (now at 337M global streams).

Born Jacob Sullenger, JAWNY grew up outside Oakland, CA and started playing guitar when he was just six-years-old. At age 13 he began making beats with his brother, eventually landing placements with several rappers in the SoundCloud scene of the late-aughts. By 2017 he’d gained a cult-like following thanks in part to a series of viral videos posted on Twitter and earned further buzz in 2018 with a self-titled debut EP made under the name Johnny Utah. In 2019, he broadened his fanbase with widely praised singles like Honeypie and 4Tounce, then landed a deal with Interscope Records by the year’s end. Dubbed a slacker-funk gem by DIY Mag, Honeypie has now amassed over 335 million streams globally across all streaming platforms, while its video has surpassed 25 million views on YouTube. Arriving in October 2020, JAWNY’s major-label debut For Abby drew praise from leading outlets like NME who praised the set as one of lockdown’s most innovative and colourful bedroom pop projects. JAWNY will join the recently announced Lollapalooza lineup performing at Grant Park in Chicago on July 30. 

Purchase JAWNY’s ‘The Story of Hugo’ eEP via retail, Amazon, Apple, Deezer, iTunes, Pandora, Soundcloud, Spotify, Tidal and YouTube Music
