JEFFREY DEITCH PRESENTS SHATTERED GLASS OPENING 

Shattered Glass, the acclaimed exhibition of new art by emerging artists of color, which was shown at Jeffrey Deitch Los Angeles last spring, is being presented in an expanded version in the Moore Building in the Miami Design District. The expanded Miami version of Shattered Glass will include fifteen new artists. The painting, sculpture, and photographic works in the exhibition are all figurative. The subject matter is often the artists’ family and friends. Their primary subject is their own life and their community. The participating artists are all strongly socially engaged; many of whom incorporate powerful social messages into their work. The exhibition represents a remarkable new generation that connects with a new art audience. Jeffrey Deitch has been presenting exhibitions and public art projects in the Miami Design District since 2002.

DAVID CASTILLO EXHIBITION PREVIEW OF “YOU SHOULD HAVE NEVER CROSSED THE RIO GRANDE,” A SOLO EXHIBITION OF FABRIC PAINTINGS AND ASSEMBLAGES BY PEPE MAR

David Castillo presents You Should Have Never Crossed the Rio Grande, a solo exhibition of fabric paintings and assemblages by Pepe Mar. The artist’s own experience of migration from Mexico to the United States serves as a stage through which he explores the current conditions of his own practice and of the country that he now calls home. He considers how migratory experiences have shaped the nation, and—by extension—how they have come to influence his own work in a city like Miami, where visual culture is inflected by a diversity of diasporas. And through the various pieces on view in the exhibition, Mar asks a compelling question: “How would my life and practice have developed had I stayed in Mexico?”

SZA – I HATE U

Top Dawg Entertainment’s multi-platinum selling, chart-topping and award-winning recording artist SZA, officially releases “I Hate U” today at all DSPs via TDE/RCA Records.

Produced by Rob Bisel, Carter Lang, thankgod4cody and Dylan Patrice, “I Hate U” emerged as a fan favorite after being posted on Soundcloud in August as an “experiment.”

“I Hate U” comes nearly a year after SZA released “Good Days” on Christmas 2020. Grammy-nominated for Best R&B Song, “Good Days” quickly became SZA’s greatest gainer solo single release, peaking at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and marking her first time in the chart’s top ten as the main artist.

About SZA

Born in St. Louis and raised in Maplewood, NJ, genre-defying recording artist SZA released her major label debut album Ctrl (TDE/RCA) in 2017. Revered for its raw and honest lyrics, it landed at No. 1 on Billboard’s R&B Albums chart, No. 2 on the R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart and No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart, according to Nielsen Music. The RIAA-certified 2x Platinum album received five Grammy nominations in 2018 and more than half the songs on Ctrl are now certified Platinum and Gold. Her hit song “All the Stars” with Kendrick Lamar from Black Panther: The Album, Music From and Inspired By, earned her Oscar (1) and Grammy (4) nominations in 2019. SZA has won various awards since the release of Ctrl including Billboard Music Awards’ Top R&B Female Artist, BET Awards’ Best New Artist, Soul Train Music Awards’ Best R&B/Soul Female Artist and Best New Artist, MTV Video Music Awards’ Best Visual Effects for the “All The Stars” with Kendrick Lamar and NAACP Image Awards’ Outstanding New Artist in 2018. In 2019, she won NAACP Image Awards’ Outstanding Duo or Group for “All The Stars” with Kendrick Lamar and Outstanding Soundtrack/Compilation for the Black Panther Soundtrack. SZA also received Billboard’s 2019 Women in Music Rule Breaker award.

In 2020, SZA released the hypnotic track “Hit Different” featuring Ty Dolla $ign along with the stunning visual that took the internet by storm. To close out the trying year, SZA gifted fans on Christmas Day with the hopeful track “Good Days,” followed by a trippy visual released in March. Grammy-nominated for Best R&B Song, the single quickly became SZA’s greatest gainer solo single release, peaking at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and marking her first time in the chart’s top ten as the main artist. To this day, SZA continues to set the standard on creativity and break records with over 7.2 billion streams worldwide across all platforms. Ctrl remains on the Billboard 200 chart since its release in 2017 (over 207 weeks) and holds the record for the longest run for any Black female artist’s debut album.

Mariah Carey – All I Want for Christmas is You

Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You” Makes History

Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You” continues to make pop music history this year as the artist’s perennial yuletide standard (cowritten and coproduced by Mariah Carey and Walter Afanasieff in 1994) keeps breaking new records while lighting up the 2021 holiday season.

This December, “All I Want for Christmas is You” became the first and only holiday single to take home the RIAA’s coveted Diamond Award (in recognition of ten million sales and streaming units in the United States).

Listen to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas is You” here.

“The continued love for my song never ceases to amaze me and fill my heart with a multitude of emotions,” said Mariah. “It blows my mind that ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’ has endured different eras of the music industry. The RIAA DIAMOND award?! Wowww! I’m so fortunate to have the greatest fans on Earth, my Lambily, who continue to support my legacy. I love you.”

“Mariah is the Queen of Christmas,” said President of the Commercial Music Group at Sony Music Entertainment, Richard Story. “Her Sony Music family congratulates her on breaking yet another record, and continuing to make history as the first and only artist to achieve this incredible milestone.”

“Mariah Carey is one of the top Gold & Platinum awarded artists of all time, and ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ becoming the only holiday song to achieve Diamond is a remarkable milestone forever etched in music history.  Congratulations and happy holidays to Mariah and her amazing Sony team,” said Mitch Glazier, Chairman and CEO, RIAA.

Carey also spotlights the global fan-favorite “All I Want for Christmas is You” in the Apple TV+ smash-hit, Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special, with a show-stopping performance of the record-breaking song, along with her twins, son Moroccan and daughter Monroe.  On the heels of this exciting news, Carey debuts her all-new holiday extravaganza Mariah’s Christmas: The Magic Continues, premiering globally today and available now on Apple TV+.

On Tuesday, December 7, Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) will make two Mariah Carey films, Live at the Tokyo Dome and First Vision, available for digital purchase and rental for the first time in the United States. Showcasing more than 80 minutes of music, including a stunning live version of “All I Want for Christmas is You,” Mariah Carey: Live at the Tokyo Dome captures the artist’s historic first concert in Japan, lensed during her 1996 Daydream World Tour. Mariah Carey: First Vision gives viewers an inside look at Mariah on the cusp of her meteoric rise to superstardom; this 1991 film contains early music videos, behind-the-scenes footage, an interview and songs from her very first live performance at New York’s intimate Tatou Club in 1990. Currently available in the US only, four additional Mariah Carey films–Fantasy: Mariah Carey at Madison Square GardenHere is Mariah CareyMariah Carey Around the World and Mariah Carey: MTV Unplugged +3–will be released worldwide via SPE on December 7.

Billboard recently named Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You” as the #1 record on their Greatest of All Time Holiday 100 Songs list. The song first cracked the Top 10 of the Hot 100 in December 2017 and, in December 2019, 25 years after its original release, became the second holiday single ever to hit #1 on the Hot 100, breaking the record for longest span from release date to #1. “All I Want for Christmas is You” hit #1 again in 2020, giving it a five week total in the top slot, a new milestone for a holiday recording.

Recorded in August 1994 at The Hit Factory in New York, “All I Want for Christmas is You” was originally released in October 1994 as the first single from Mariah’s Merry Christmas album, a showcase for Mariah’s interpretations of familiar holiday songs alongside the new material she’d composed with co-writer Walter Walter Afanasieff. “All I Want for Christmas Is You” went on to become one of the best-selling singles (of any genre) of all time and the best-selling holiday ringtone in the United States for several years running.

When “All I Want for Christmas is You” hit #1 on the Hot 100 in 2019, it was Mariah’s 19th claim on the top spot, a record for a solo recording artist; when her holiday single hit #1 the following year, Mariah became the first artist to have a Hot 100 # 1 in four separate decades (the 1990s, the 2000s, the 2010s and the 2020s).

Having charted every holiday season since its original release, Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You”–which The New Yorker called “one of the few worthy modern additions to the holiday canon”–has become an essential seasonal standard that continues to bring the spirit of Christmas to the hearts of music lovers the world over.

“All I Want for Christmas is You” is Carey’s biggest international success, topping the charts in twenty-six countries including Australia, Canada, France, and Germany. In 2020, the holiday classic topped the charts in the United Kingdom for the first time, spending a record 69 weeks in the UK Top 40 before reaching #1. “All I Want for Christmas is You” is the all-time best-selling Christmas single by a female artist and one of the top-selling physical singles in music history. It’s the first holiday ringtone to be certified double platinum by the RIAA.

BRUNO MARTINI REMAKES BRING ME TO LIFE

Bruno Martini was still a teenager when Amy Lee’s voice conquered the world with “Fallen”, Evanescence’s first album. The hit “Bring Me to Life”, was one of the songs on the album, and marked a generation becoming one of the band’s biggest hits. Now, 18 years later, fans of the group can get a remake of the iconic song by the hands of Bruno Martini. Invited by David Hodges, former Evanescence’s member and one of the authors of “Bring Me to Life”, Bruno brings the song back to the scene with a whole new look. Listen to it here

The music video features Brazilian actress Vanessa Giácomo sharing the stage with Martini on a story filled with fiction and lights. Vanessa appears with a futuristic look inside a pyramid, matching its aesthetics with the new sound Bruno brought to the song. The music video was shot in the countryside of São Paulo.

The idea of bringing new life to the song came from David Hodges during the pandemic. The musician contacted Martini’s team, who soon accepted the challenge of working on the song that marked his teenage years. The new “Bring Me to Life” has David Hodges on the vocals, bringing a nostalgic feeling to the project. David’s voice was crafted by Bruno, who brought new contours to the track, creating a more modern sound with an electronic atmosphere.

BRUNO´S HITS

Bruno Martini is becoming one of the go-to producers in Brazil. With an extensive resume playing on some of the biggest festivals around the world, he has worked with stars such as Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and Becky Hill. He was the first Brazilian artist to make work with the legendary American producer Timbaland. His numbers are impressive. He has over 1.3 billion streams on Spotify, more than 600 million views on YouTube, and Diamond, Platinum, and Gold certificates worldwide. He has worked with some of today’s biggest Brazilian acts such as Luísa Sonza, IZA, Alok, Vitor Kley, Dennis DJ, and many more.

Recently, Bruno released the song “Where’d U Go” featuring Cat Dealers. He also remixed the iconic song from Netflix hit series “La Casa de Papel”, “Bella Ciao,” invited by the actress Najwa Rimri, who plays inspector Alicia Sierra in the series. Earlier this year, Bruno released “Original,” a 17-track full album, filled with female voices, such as IZA, Becky Hill, Luísa Sonza, Mayra, Carol Biazin and ex-Now United’s Diarra Sylla. The album still brings a collab with Bruno’s longtime friend and music partner Zeeba, whose voice became famous on Bruno Martini’s worldwide hit “Hear Me Now”.

LIDS EXPANDS TO EUROPE

LEADING SPORTS RETAILER OPENING FOUR DEBUT STANDALONE STORES IN THE UK IN DECEMBER

Leading sports retailer, Lids is expanding its brick-and-mortar retail presence internationally with the opening of its first standalone stores in Europe. For its European debut, Lids will open four locations throughout the London metropolitan area: Seven Dials (now open) and The 02 Peninsula Square in London, Lakeside Shopping Centre in Essex, and Churchill Square Shopping Centre Russel Place in Brighton, all opening in December.

Each store will mimic the immersive shopping experience of extensive licensed and branded merchandise Lids has long been known for. Products at each store will include a vast assortment of major U.S. league team products from MLB, NFL, and NBA, among others, as well as items from go-to brands including Adidas, New Era Cap, ’47, Mitchell & Ness, Hurley, Oakley, Local Crowns, and more. Each store will also feature Lids’ signature Custom Zones, which allows consumers the opportunity to custom embroider a hat or apparel piece of their choice in-store, including from the retailer’s numerous options of player numbers and autographs.

The expansion into the UK is strategic from Lids as the retailer looks to further expand its international footprint moving forward. “London is a natural fit for Lids. The enthusiasm for both American sports and street wear aligns with our on-field and fashion focused hat and jersey assortment. We are excited to bring our brand and product to market,” says Britten Maughan, President of Lids. Through these four retail openings, Lids is expected to create several new jobs in the London market.

The London store openings are the first of many planned from Lids heading into 2022 as the retailer looks to double down on its global footprint. “Expanding in the UK is our top priority at Lids,” says Tom Ripley, Chairman and CEO of Lids and Partner Co-Founder at Ames Watson, the parent company to Lids. “Lids has become one of the strongest retailers in North America and we’re thrilled to take this growth internationally as we look to open 100+ standalone Lids stores in new markets. There has already been great success with the London NBA store operated by Lids since its grand opening earlier this year, and we are excited to introduce standalone Lids stores to an even larger audience of British customers.”

News of this international growth follows the retailer’s exponential growth into a billion-dollar business since being acquired by Ames Watson in 2019. To date, Lids operates nearly 2,000 stores throughout the U.S. and Canada, including through its ongoing retail partnerships with Macy’s and Designer Brands. Lids also operates the newly opened National Hockey League (NHL) flagship store in New York City as well as the National Basketball Association (NBA) flagship stores in New York City and London. Lids is the world’s largest retailer specializing in the sale of officially licensed and branded headwear with over 30 million hats sold annually.

About Lids

MILLENNIUM IMAGES NEWEST PHOTOGRAPHERS

CHANEL IRVINE

We are proud to showcase the work of Chanel Irvine, a new contributor. As a documentary photographer, Chanel’s practice seeks to portray the power of human initiative, connection and contribution. Inspired by the importance of constructive, solution-based journalism, she embraces visual communication that empowers readers and subjects alike. Her stories often focus on livelihoods, environments and communities that are susceptible to change based on emerging trends, development demands and environmental pressures. Aware of the multitude of sustainability issues they face, she is particularly interested in the people and organisations who are working to make a positive environmental and social impact in their communities.

Using a retrospective lens, Chanel’s more personal work similarly reflects this tension between preservation and change. With an eye for moments she deems timeless, her observations consistently focus on scenes that are reminiscent of older, simpler times, which persist seemingly unaffected by the advancements that otherwise transform the world we live in. As a result, her photographs accentuate the “ordinary” – reasserting its importance as a photographic subject and highlighting the beauty that can constantly be rediscovered in the everyday.

In ‘anywhere but here’, Alison McCauley expresses the restless feeling that has haunted her throughout her life: that the place she is in isn’t where she should be, and a conviction that the next place will be better. Taken from 2008 to the present, these images—taken in various locations around the world—are a deeply personal reflection of the artist’s emotions, photography being a cathartic means of coming to terms with her constant desire to move. As someone who has always led a semi-nomadic lifestyle, McCauley seeks to explore the idea of not belonging. Though she feels like she is supposed to belong somewhere, McCauley doesn’t want to, as she recognises that it is the wonder of this belonging that is the impetus behind her work.

Devoid of geographical and temporal reference points, the images are figuratively and literally blurred to emphasise that this is not about a location or time, but rather a state of mind. For the viewer the series takes on a narrative of its own, unfolding like a dream sequence: a body submerged in water, a flurry of balloons released into the open sky, city lights streaming through a hotel room, and fleeting scenes captured from a car window. Just as she is drawn to movement, it is these liminal spaces that the artist gravitates towards – the chaos, the stillness, and the magic in between. “The work comes from reality, but it’s a reality that’s distorted by subjectivity,” says McCauley. “It’s an expression of my state of mind during these restless off-moments.”

DJ SNAKE × FUTURE

DJ SNAKE TAPS FUTURE FOR SPECIAL NEW VERSION OF “U ARE MY HIGH” 

Multi-platinum producer DJ Snake has recruited Future for a new version of “U Are My High” available via Interscope Records. Adding another dimension to this intoxicating banger, DJ Snake breathes fresh fire into the track. With a sample from iconic The Gap Band, the production instantly captivates as Future pulls up with an otherworldly verse and entrancing melody, blasting off with the hook. Watch the visualizer.

Earlier this summer, DJ Snake dropped “U Are My High” in its original incarnation “You Are My High.” Emerging as one of the year’s most viral dance songs, the latter exploded on TikTok, appearing in over 2.5 million user videos and tallying a staggering 4 billion-plus views. Meanwhile, it has cracked 100 million streams, posting up north of 300K streams daily on Spotify alone. It also continues a history of collaboration between these two superstars, dating back to DJ Snake’s historic headlining set at Ultra Miami 2017 when Future turned up as a surprise guest.

The most listened to French artist in the world, DJ Snake has also announced an exceptional hometown show in a place very symbolic to him: PSG’s Parc des Princes Stadium on June 11, 2022. A football fan and huge supporter of Paris-Saint-Germain, he will be the first to bring concerts to life in this legendary venue, which has not hosted a musical event for over 10 years. Tickets are on sale for the general public starting Friday, December 3rd at 10AM French local time (CET).

ABOUT DJ SNAKE:

DJ Snake made his full-length debut with Encore, a 2016 album that reached #1 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart and debuted in the top 10 around the world. Since scoring his first #1 with the four-times-platinum “Let Me Love You” ft. Justin Bieber, DJ Snake has triumphed with such colossal hits as “You Know You Like It” (with AlunaGeorge), “Lean On” (with Major Lazer, featuring MØ), and “Taki Taki” ft. Selena Gomez, Ozuna & Cardi B. With its title translating to “the freedom to do whatever one chooses,” his sophomore album Carte Blanche arrived in July 2019 and shot to #1 on Billboard’s US Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart, in addition to reaching the top 50 on the Billboard 200. Thanks to the tremendous success of “Let Me Love You,” “Lean On,” and “Taki Taki,” DJ Snake now holds the distinction of being one of only two dance artists in the world to have three songs amass more than a billion streams on Spotify.

U2 ACHTUNG BABY 30TH ANNIVERSARY

U2 Releases Achtung Baby 30th Anniversary Vinyl + Digital Box Set

“[Achtung Baby]… U2’s daring descent into darkness” – Robert Hilburn, LA Times

360 readers should check out both the vinyl release and the never-before seen tracks from the new 50-track digital box set that was released on December 3, 2021!

Island Records, Interscope, and UMe announced the 30th Anniversary Edition release of U2’s seminal album Achtung Baby, which will see a special Standard and Deluxe vinyl release on November 19, ahead of a 50-track digital boxset available December 3, 2021. 

Thirty years ago, Bono described Achtung Baby as “the sound of four men chopping down The Joshua Tree” while Jon Pareles of the New York Times wrote that “stripped-down and defying its old formulas, U2 has given itself a fighting chance for the 1990’s”. The album won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance and became one of the most significant records of the nineties and of U2’s career.

Recorded over six months at Hansa Studio in Berlin and Windmill Lane in Dublin, Achtung Baby is U2’s seventh studio album. Produced by long-time U2 collaborators Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno with Steve Lillywhite, Achtung Baby was engineered by Flood and released on November 18, 1991. Lead by The Fly, four other singles followed: Mysterious Ways, One, Even Better Than The Real Thing, and Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses. Watch HERE.  

The bonnet of the Trabant will be auctioned at Phillips, London, on December 9, as part of their New Now sale, with proceeds going to the Berlin Institute for Sound and Music. 

Achtung Baby (30th Anniversary Edition) is available on Standard black vinyl and Deluxe color vinyl on November 19, with Achtung Baby (2018 Remaster) and Achtung Baby (Unter Remixes) also available digitally that day. A 50-track digital boxset – to include Uber Remixes, Unter Remixes, B-Sides with 22 tracks never-before available digitally – will be released on December 3, 2021.  

U2 X-Radio, the band’s SiriusXM channel, will this month present an Achtung Baby special to include interviews with band members and album collaboration Daniel Lanois, Flood, and Anton Corbijn.
