ELLE CANADA × PRIYANKA

KO Média is excited to unveil the summer issue of ELLE Canada featuring “Canada’s First drag Superstar” Priyanka. The Indo-queer West Indian queen talks about leaving her job to be on the first season of Canada’s Drag Race, filming her debut EP’s lead single and why the show was exactly what Canadians needed last year. “A show like Canada’s Drag Race lets us see the light at the end of the tunnel. It was like ‘At least we have this. At least we’re all in this together.’” After performing across the country, she appreciates the warm welcomes and the support she’s received. “Getting that audience to come out and see you is so important because that’s what being Canadian is all about. We’re not a melting pot; we’re a fruit salad!”

Priyanka will also be hosting Pride Toronto’s 2021 digital parade, in honor of the massive and inclusive fest’s 40 year anniversary – just one of Elle’s front row tips for what’s hot this summer. Other recommendations include Tiffany’s engagement rings for men; flattering Canada-made, limited edition swimwear for all body types from Nettle’s Tale; and the most natural “no-makeup makeup” from Bobbi Brown’s new line.

Speaking of summer fun, if you love musicals, we’ve got the inside scoop on the breakout movie of the season, with “In the Heights” star Melissa Barrera dishing on going from telenovelas to Hollywood, working with the film’s triple-threat team (including Hamilton’s Anthony Ramos) and what the film means for the Latinx community.

Film buffs will also love our behind-the-scenes look at some of the world’s most reputable costume designers, from the dichromatic wardrobes of the Capulets in Romeo + Juliet to the 15 identical coats sewn for Ryan Gosling (and his Blade Runner 2049 stuntman).

In fashion, it’s the summer of sex, with hot days and sweaty nights driving the desire for sexy, slinky strings criss-crossed over exposed waists and diaphanous layers revealing bra tops and thongs. Meanwhile, the ‘70s are back, with flared jeans, old-school knits, happy face accessories (think 24-karat-gold-plated earrings)… and the retro rise of roller skating, as championed by fashionistas including Zendaya and Dua Lipa – complete with high-heel skates.

In beauty, we tell you how to get that healthy summer glow, and talk to an expert about the best sunscreens (and what most people are doing wrong when they apply them!).

And we take a closer look at ourselves, delving into body hair stigma (why exactly are we still shaving our legs again?); how social media and the desire for a perfect smile is leading to a rise in dental veneers; and whether we’re getting addicted to isolation. Instead of FOMO, could the end of the pandemic trigger the fear of missing in?

The summer issue of ELLE Canada will hit stands and Apple News+ on June 21th, 2021. Read the digital issue HERE.

H.E.R. kicked off 2021 in the most stellar of ways by winning two Grammy Awards – Song of the Year for “I Can’t Breathe” and Best R&B Song for her contribution to Robert Glasper’s “Better Than I Imagined,” plus an Academy Award for her powerful song “Fight For You” from the Warner Bros. Pictures’ film Judas and the Black Messiah.

VINCE STAPLES × LAW OF AVERAGES

VINCE STAPLES TO RELEASE SELF-TITLED ALBUM ON JULY 9, MARKING HIS FIRST FULL-LENGTH RELEASE IN THREE YEARS

Esteemed hip-hop artist Vince Staples today announced the release of his self-titled LP – out Friday, July 9 via Blacksmith Recordings/Motown Records. His first full-length release since 2018’s critically acclaimed FM!, the 10-track LP delves not only into Staples’ upbringing in Long Beach, but his psyche as he learns to cope with his yesterdays and strides toward new tomorrows, picking others up along the way.

In conjunction with the announcement, Staples released the much-anticipated first single off the LP, Law of Averages”, alongside the official music video for the track, directed by Kid. Studio. Set against a montage of voyeuristic moments in Long Beach, CA, the cinematic visual features imagery that embodies black joy and highlights the beauty within the fringes.

“Law of Averages” is available to stream or download HERE. Watch the official music video HERE.

Of the new Kenny Beats-produced LP, Staples says, “It really gives much more information about me that wasn’t out there before. That’s why I went with that title. I feel like I’ve been trying to tell the same story. As you go on in life, your point of view changes. This is another take on myself that I might not have had before.”

The celebrated rapper’s latest body of work is also just the beginning of his busy 2021. Staples is currently working on a number of creative projects with additional details to be announced throughout the year.

“I’m a mind more than I am an entertainer to a lot of people,” Staples says, adding, “I appreciate that my fanbase is willing to go on this ride with me. I’m ready to diversify what we’re doing and see how we affect the world.”

Boslen – QUARTZ

Vancouver-bred alt-hip-hop newcomer Boslen shares his latest single, a hard-hitting and hypnotic track called “QUARTZ.” Featuring Zimbabwe-born rapper Charmaine, “QUARTZ” is the third single released from Boslen’s forthcoming debut album DUSK to DAWN, due out later this year. Listen to “QUARTZ” HERE.

Produced by justsayin, Stoopid Lou, and Dalton, “QUARTZ” is the latest offering from a fast-rising artist with a proven track record of boldly defying genre boundaries. This time around, the 22-year-old phenomenon delivers one of his most formidable tracks to date, showing the full force of his commanding vocals and expert wordplay in the lines: “Never needed/No coke/Or pills/Or fat lines/Jokes on you I’m too high, I got the dopamine in my mind.” As “QUARTZ” unfolds in sinister textures and brilliantly warped beats, Charmaine slides in and shows off the fiercely magnetic vocal presence previously glimpsed on her unstoppable debut single “BOLD.”

Revealing his passionate refusal to stay in one lane, “QUARTZ” marks a major departure from Boslen’s recent single “DENY (feat. Tyla Yaweh),” a pop-punk-inspired track detailing a relationship gone wrong. Soon after premiering in March, “DENY” earned praise from the likes of HotNewHipHop, who hailed Boslen as “one of Canada’s most exciting hip-hop exports.” Check out the cinematic visual for “DENY” HERE.

Along with “QUARTZ” and “DENY,” DUSK to DAWN will feature Boslen’s early-2021 single “TRIP,” an R&B-flavored, psychedelia-tinged slow-burner speaking to the sacrifices he’s made to achieve success. The album will arrive as his first new project since the Black Lotus EP, a 2019 effort that peaked at #11 on the Canadian Apple Music streaming charts. Already known for his razor-sharp ability to move fluidly from genre to genre, Boslen is poised to accelerate his eclectic sound even further with the highly anticipated release of DUSK to DAWN.

About Boslen

Boslen is a 22-year-old trailblazing and genre-bending artist of Jamaican and Indigenous Canadian descent, based in Vancouver. Fusing hip-hop, rock, pop, and everything else under sun to craft his emotive rap ballads and bouncing trap bangers, he’s a sonic architect who meticulously takes part in the production of all his tracks. In 2018 he released his debut mixtape Motionless, then delivered Motionless II later that year. Arriving in early 2019, his single “Eye for an Eye” cemented his spot as a crucial force in the future of Vancouver’s sound. In July 2019, Boslen released “Hidden Nights,” which gained traction after receiving support from popular YouTube channel and entertainment company, the Nelk Boys. From there, Boslen went on to release his Black Lotus EP, which peaked at #11 on the Canadian Apple Music streaming charts. His momentum continued into 2020 with the release of “VULTURES,” a track clapping back at those who were taking advantage of him. As he continues to push himself creatively, Boslen is becoming widely known for his self-reflective lyricism, as well as his ability to seamlessly flow over pop, hip-hop, R&B, and alternative production. Later this year, Boslen will release his debut album DUSK to DAWN.

Jessia x I Should Quit

Rising Canadian pop star and songwriter Jessia released the official video for her new single, I Should Quit.

Directed by Nina Kramer, the carefree video highlights Jessia’s struggle to accept her friends’ advice to stop making impulsive bad choices, while knowing that she should quit but in reality admits she has no intention of doing so. On the track, Jessia says “I’m really good at giving advice but not always good at taking it. I know what I SHOULD do but what’s the fun in always playing it safe? Sometimes you just need to fully accept that you are a hot mess.” 

Recently, Jessia was featured as Billboard Magazine’s Chartbreaker for the month of June. Her CRIA Gold-certified body acceptance anthem I’m not Pretty is currently Top 5 at Hot AC radio in Canada and features GRAMMY® Award-nominated artist Bebe Rexha on the official remix version of the track released last month. “I’m not Pretty” recently crossed 100 million+ streams and this week tops the Billboard Canada Emerging Artists Chart for the SEVENTH consecutive week at #1. 

I’m Not Pretty initially exploded on Tik Tok when Jessia introduced the a cappella hook of the song by sharing, “I don’t know if this is total trash, or if it’s actually a bop.” Turns out it was the latter, as the clip racked up 1 million views in a day. The candid lyrics describe a journey towards self-love and the emotions one can feel while on its path – a message that has instantly resonated with audiences all over the world. 

In addition to early support from international tastemakers, Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter, and producer Ryan Tedder personally reached out to Jessia upon hearing the song to champion her work and collaborate. Together they are putting the finishing touches on more new music—due out soon.

2021 TOUR DATES

July 1 – Lights On Canada Day – Ottawa, ON

July 31 – Lollapalooza – Chicago, IL

October 30 – Outside Lands Festival – San Francisco, CA

Today, Atlanta-based R&B singer/songwriter Mariah the Scientist shares a new track and video 2 You via RCA Records. Marking her first release of 2021, the track’s trippy, bouncy beat flows seamlessly with Mariah’s clear, sleek vocals. The video transports you to space, displaying various scenes of galaxies and stars, while Mariah pours her feelings out through her vulnerable lyrics. “2 You” will be on her forthcoming project RY RY WORLD coming this summer, which is now available for pre-order.

RY RY WORLD is her first project release since her 2019 major label debut Master – a wry and profoundly personal collection of self-reflective ballads layered with sparse, cinematic instrumentals, which has garnered over 31 million streams worldwide and counting. Last year, Mariah released two tracks gearing up for her return – Always n Forever feat. Lil Baby, an iconic love song about loyalty and commitment, and RIP,  an ethereal slow-drip ballad about finding a way to end the pain of never feeling enough for someone else.

Pitchfork proclaims Mariah a “major new voice in R&B.” She’s an artist who embodies modern R&B through her fearlessness and unapologetic femininity while her songwriting is rooted in vulnerability and honesty. These variables combined into each song is what makes Mariah the Scientist relatable to anyone who listens to her music.

Mariah the Scientist is officially back and ready for a game-changing return. Her new releases are bound to be as iconic and powerful as her previous tracks.

Long Beach Juneteenth Celebration

Long Beach Hosts Largest Juneteenth Celebration in City’s History

On Saturday, June 19th, Long Beach will host its largest Juneteenth event ever. The Long Beach Juneteenth Celebration will take place on Historic Pine Avenue in Downtown Long Beach, between 4th and 5th Streets, from 11AM – 4PM. The city of Long Beach officially designated Juneteenth a “Day of Celebration,” and they will advocate for it to become a state and federal holiday through their City Council legislative affairs committees.

We are excited to celebrate the best of Black culture with our people and allies,” said event organizer Carl Kemp. “I chose to do this event in response to a call from God, and it has been blessed with volunteers, supporters and sponsors who also believe in the vision of celebrating Black freedom, culture, achievement and unity.”

This free event will feature an array of performances from the main stage, including R&B superstar Eric Benét, MAJOR., the Antioch Mass Choir, African drum and dance, jazz poetry and more! There will also be vendors and fun activities for the entire family.

The Long Beach Juneteenth celebration allows our community to reflect on progress we’ve made, while recognizing with clear eyes how far we have to go. Black people worldwide still suffer under the oppression of systemic racism and injustice,” said Cameron Onumah, Amazon Policy Manager. Amazon is the Presenting Sponsor and made a major contribution toward the event. “We have a lot of work to do as a society, and, as a company, we want to listen, engage and take action, together.”

I am overjoyed and elated to sponsor the Long Beach Juneteenth Celebration,” said Wayne Chaney Jr., Lead Pastor of Antioch Church of Long Beach, which is just steps away from the event. “I know Carl’s personal journey and commitment to making this vision from God a reality, and I believe with all my heart that this is the start of something big for our city for years to come.

The DLBA is proud to sponsor this important celebration to honor Black history and culture. We remain committed to recognizing and supporting our Black community not only through Juneteenth, but throughout the year. This is an important part of building cultural and social awareness while embracing the broader conversation of diversity, equity and inclusion,” said Kraig Kojian, President and CEO, Downtown Long Beach Alliance. “We look forward to everyone coming together for an afternoon of uplifting celebration in our Downtown to support the celebration and our community.”

We are honored to be one of the inaugural sponsors of this year’s Long Beach Juneteenth celebration. Juneteenth is an important part of history that should be recognized and celebrated in the community, and it’s exciting to see the entire city come together for such an important cause,” said Tamika Lang, Boeing Global Engagement Senior Manager.

JESSIE J – I WANT LOVE

JESSIE J PREMIERES I WANT LOVE OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO 

NEW ALBUM ARRIVING LATER THIS YEAR

GRAMMY® Award-nominated multi-platinum pop superstar Jessie J premieres the official music video for brand-new single I Want Love via LAVA/Republic Records.

“This album is like a short film over many years of my life and this video is the first part of that story I’m sharing.” Jessie J comments on the new music video, “I wanted the video to feel like people weren’t supposed to see this moment. A moment between the moments captured.”

I Want Love sets the stage for her anxiously awaited fifth full-length album, coming later this year, co-written with and executive produced by GRAMMY® Award-winning mega-producer Ryan Tedder (Beyoncé, Adele).

Back in 2011, Jessie J quietly emerged with the biggest voice in pop. The UK-born powerhouse introduced herself with Who You Are, which not only went platinum, but also yielded the quadruple-platinum Price Tag and platinum Domino. Not to mention, the record made history as “the first album by a British female artist to produce six or more Top 10 hits in the UK,” while she picked up the 2011 Critics’ Choice BRIT Award and BBC’s Sound of 2011. On its heels, 2014’s Sweet Talker crashed the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 and housed the eight-times platinum Bang Bang with Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. Throughout 2018, she revealed R.O.S.E. in four parts to critical acclaim and supported it with a sold-out world tour. The same year Jessie J traveled to China and joined the TV show SINGER, a singing competition where she performed each week in front of a television audience of 250 million with a grand finale viewership of a 1 billion. Not only was Jessie J the first international artist to ever compete alongside the biggest artists in Asia, but also the first to ever win. With a once-in-a-generation voice, confessional writing style, and stadium-shaking charisma, she’s back in 2021 with I Want Love.

Watch I Want Love here. Now available on all platforms.
