Original Version of “Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)” Taken from ‘The Lockdown Sessions’, a Forthcoming Album of Collaborations Recorded in Lockdown Released on  October 22nd via Interscope Records

AVAILABLE TO PRE-ORDER NOW

Elton John and Dua Lipa have today unveiled The Blessed Madonna’s Remix of “Cold Heart” with Dua Lipa. The Blessed Madonna first came to Elton’s attention as a consistently uncompromising voice with the electronic music community, remixing a wealth of his favorite artists. Her music has become a regular fixture on Elton’s Apple Music Rocket Hour show and she has been high on his wish list of collaborators since. The Blessed Madonna is also no stranger to Dua Lipa, having co-curated Dua’s ‘Club Future Nostalgia’ album and remixed her global hit “Levitating.” It’s a combination that’s a completely natural fit and has been a long, long time in coming. The results do not disappoint. Listen here.

Already growing into a bonafide international hit record in its own right, the original album version of “Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)” is taken from Elton’s eagerly anticipated ‘The Lockdown Sessions.’ A 16-track album of collaborations recorded remotely over the last 18 months, ‘The Lockdown Sessions’ will be released on October 22nd via Interscope Records.

Speaking of the remix, The Blessed Madonna says: “Like just about everyone on the planet, I stand in awe of Elton John and Dua Lipa. It was such an enormous honor to be asked to be a part of their collaboration which is such a beautiful project. I immediately loved the song and I tried very hard to do it justice. It is nothing but pure joy to be in the orbit of these icons and their great big, warm beautiful hearts. I appreciate all of you listening.

The Blessed Madonna remix of “Cold Heart” is accompanied by a bespoke visualizer – with motion graphics artist James Stevens remixing the stunning official video for “Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)” created by Hamburg based animator and director Raman Djafari. Watch the visualizer here. A beautifully animated, trippy journey, the visuals form a fabulous counterpart to the video for the original song. 360 Magazine is really impressed by the beautiful graphic work in the music video which gives an animate feeling for the younger generation to be interested in. 

Also today, tickets for the London date of Elton’s ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road – The Final Tour’ go on general sale to the public. BST Hyde Park will host this historic show on Friday, June 24, 2022.        

An unparalleled career that has forever changed the cultural landscape, Elton John’s collaborations with Bernie Taupin and others continue to shape the cultural landscape, break records, top charts and win new fans across the generations. We’ve had the book, the film, the farewell tour, the fashion collections, and the greatest hits. And now with ‘The Lockdown Sessions’ available in digital formats, fans can enter Elton’s new world which is no doubt another fitting addition to his oeuvre.

What I Like was produced by multi-Grammy Award winning and Producer of the Year nominated producers/songwriters The Stereotypes (Bruno Mars, Cardi B., Justin Bieber) who also co-wrote the song with Destiny.

Unapologetic but impossibly smooth, What I Like shares some crucial insight into Destiny’s personality, listing off what she loves (matte-black Mercedes-AMGs, men who don’t talk too much) and what she can’t stand (driving the speed limit, dudes who expect her to pick up the check).

​The release of What I Like coincides with the launch of Destiny’s Jordan Brand campaign, titled Delta of Destiny for the release of the Jordan Delta 2 shoe. The month-long campaign will be featured on Jordan’s social pages and on the Nike app. Every week until August 11th, Jordan Brand will be releasing content featuring Destiny Rogers with What I Like as the featured track.

Check out the Jordan Brand campaign on Instagram HERE and on the Nike App HERE.

Comments Destiny, I am so thankful to the Jordan family for a giving me the opportunity and platform to share my story and to feature some new music! It’s a dream come true.

What I Like follows Destiny’s just released track West Like feat Kalan.FrFr on which Destiny pays loving homage to her West Coast and Latin roots, laying down a groove-heavy, talk-box-enhanced track inspired by the classic G-Funk records of the early ’90s. Check out the video premiere on COMPLEX, watch the official video HERE and a live performance that debuted last week HERE

Since first breaking through with her boldly confident but carefree single Tomboy, which has generated 43 million views on YouTube (Watch HERE) and most recently covered by K-Pop super group Black Pink’s Lisa through a dance cover (Watch HERE) that has generated over 67 million views,  Destiny Rogers has staked her claim as an artist to watch. Growing up in the Northern California town of Lodi, the 21-year-old multi-faceted musician taught herself to play guitar at age 10 and soon started writing and self-producing her own songs. Soon after the 2019 premiere of Tomboy, a track that recently hit #12 on Spotify’s Global Viral 50, Destiny’s spectacular rise has included touring the world and writing for heavy hitters such as Alicia Keys, Khelani and G-Eazy, all while discovering a new sound that transcends genres to irresistible effect.

Check out her Genius Verified piece HERE which explores her debut Tomboy.

Destiny Rogers is currently in the studio working on new material.  Prior to West Like featuring Kalan.FrFr, Destiny released a reworking of Tomboy feat. Coi Leray, and linked up with Coi for a special TikTok to the song which was reposted on Instagram and praised by Kim Kardashian West.  In addition, K-Pop superstar B.I released his global single, Got It Like That featuring Destiny Rogers with Tyla Yaweh which debuted at #1 on Spotify’s K-Pop X-Overs chart and has generated over 4 million views on YouTube (Watch HERE).

About Destiny Rogers

21-year-old Destiny Rogers is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist who was born and bred in Lodi, a small Northern California town. At age 6, she became obsessed with skateboarding and even thought she wanted to pursue her passion professionally. She grew up in the church with her father who is a youth pastor who listened to AC/DC and Mexican mother who listened to Mariachi music — Destiny was pulled in by the power of music. At age 9, she received her first guitar and by age 10 taught herself how to play by watching Justin Bieber covers online and began singing.

After a few years of busking in Los Angeles on the weekends and facing the trials and tribulations of the music industry, she connected with the Grammy-Award winning songwriter/producer team The Stereotypes (Bruno Mars, Cardi B, Justin Bieber). She signed to their label, Beach Wave Sound in 2018 and released her R&B and hip-hop inflected pop debut EP Tomboy via Beach Wave Sound/RCA Records the following year.

Destiny has performed at various festivals including Something in the Water, Lights On and Tyler, The Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw, as well as on a European and North American tour with Ruel.

Wallie the Sensei – Golden Child

COMPTON’S WALLIE THE SENSEI IS POETIC & RIVETING ON GOLDEN CHILD + BOMPTON 2 BALABASAS ACOUSTIC STREET PERFORMANCE

Listen/Download Golden Child HERE

Watch Bompton 2 Balabasas Acoustic Street Visual HERE

Vulnerable, raw and untamed perfectly describe Compton native Wallie The Sensei, who’s latest musical effort Golden Child is out today. The 17-track mixtape which includes his breakout single Scandalous is heavily influenced by Wallie’s California roots and sonically redefines the legendary west coast sound. Listen HERE.

From start to finish, Wallie takes his listeners on a journey through his hometown of Compton where he speaks on his struggle to survive the cutthroat streets while always in pursuit of money, success and all the sweet things life has to offer. Make no mistake, Golden Child isn’t a story of tragedy, but a story of triumph, hustle and ultimately defeating a system designed for Wallie to fail.

Golden Child comes on the heels of Wallie’s 03 Flow single which currently has over half a million views and over 1.5 million US streams. A true labor of love, 03 Flow pays homage to Watts native and fellow recording artist 03 Greedo who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence. 03 Flow has quickly become a fan favorite, taking on a life on its own with radio support, consistent increase in streams and critical praises from music peers like PnB Rock, industry heavyweights, radio DJs & more. On the record Wallie passionately sings niggas playing like they demons, they don’t really mean it, choppa spray like we cleanin, bodies dropping on that cement, Wallie’s passion is intently felt on the song and has become the heart of the Golden Child project.

Golden Child also includes Wallie’s team-up with Detroit powerhouse 42 Dugg on the enthralling remix of Wallie’s own hit single Scandalous. The two trade bars with ease and confidence, as Wallie offers up some of his most lucid lines, recounting the struggles of success and the haters who would come for his head. Additional stand out tracks include Lamb, the lush throwback finds Wallie effortlessly singing over a buttery beat, showcasing his one-of-a-kind flow and knack for incisive lyrics about his come-up. B*tch, nobody had it in my fam, I put my foot down, he sings. Put my other foot down like I could drive this car, let the motherf***kin hood down. In Lamb, Wallie walks recollects his life’s trajectory beginning with his time on the streets, his narratives are poetic and detailed, rivaling rap’s most vivid writers.

Track List

  2. 03 Flow
  3. B Please Pt. 2 (ft. Nebula Swavey)
  4. Fallin Apart

  17. Scandalous (Remix) (ft. 42 Dugg]

WATCH Bompton 2 Balabasas (Acoustic Performance)

Since the release of Wallie the Sensei’s No Love EP at the beginning of 2020, he’s quickly become a West Coast artist to watch. Respect magazine praised the Scandalous video for showcasing Compton’s camaraderie, hustle, and rawness, while Rosecrans Ave highlighted Wallie’s storytelling abilities, saying he is providing guidance to those who come after with his pain-stricken tales. After the hit of the Scandalous remix, Wallie the Sensei’s proved that his skyrocketing success is no fluke. Golden Child is poised to reach even more open-minded listeners. It’s full of anthems for hustling Cali natives and anyone who craves a little bit of glow-up magic.

Every song I recorded in my entire career was on that disk. I bled my soul on this record. I speak of my journey through this vicious industry. I speak on the horrors of social media notoriety and even my past relationship. God placed his hand on this record because, for the very first time, I made it for me.”

Earlier this year, Lady London released her heavy-hitting track “Money Over,” which takes on an infectious Barrington Levy sample and pays homage to her West Indian/ Caribbean roots.

Tones and I – Welcome to the Madhouse

Global superstar Tones And I has announced her widely anticipated debut album, Welcome To The Madhouse, which will arrive worldwide on July 16th Tones And I has shared the forthcoming album’s lead single, “Cloudy Day,” which is available on all streaming platforms and accompanied by an animated video streaming on her official YouTube channel. Available for pre-order today, Welcome To The Madhouse stands out as a deeply reflective and personal body of work for Tones And I, with the Australian artist writing the entire album by herself and co-producing every song.

Tones And I commented on the significance of Welcome To The Madhouse explaining, “This album for me is very up and down and reflects the forever changing emotions in me. There are songs on the album that were written before “Dance Monkey,” about not knowing if busking was right for me. There are songs about my good friend T passing away and not wanting to deal with those emotions. The ups and downs of life in lockdown and the mental challenges/struggles. Some songs make me laugh and some make me cry but there is no running theme or vibe to the album – the songs are unique to how I was feeling the day I wrote them.”

Regarding “Cloudy Day,” Tones And I elaborated on the single’s origins noting, “After my friend T passed away I was struggling to write any songs that were happy or that I even liked. I met up with a friend who told me this saying from his late mum: ‘On a cloudy day, look up into the sky and find the sun.’ I knew I wanted to use that as a lyric and the next time I went into the studio I wrote ‘Cloudy Day.'” 

Tones And I Initially laid the foundation for Welcome To The Madhouse last year with the release of “Fly Away,” a poetic and powerful composition which has amassed over 190 million streams with Tones And I delivering performances of the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. She followed it up in 2021 with the release of “Won’t Sleep,” which arrived alongside an official music video continuing what has become a tradition of highly unexpected and unforgettable visuals. Both tracks reflected the inimitable idiosyncrasies of Tones And I’s signature style, highlighting her clever lyricism, unpredictable songcraft, and indisputable knack for a hook.

Having had to postpone her global tour in 2020 due to COVID-19, Tones And I will be announcing new US, European and UK headline dates in the coming weeks. For more information on Tones And I’s tour dates and tickets to upcoming shows, click HERE.

Tones And I‘s global smash “Dance Monkey” officially became the 3rd most streamed song of all time on Spotify making the track the most streamed song ever by a female artist on the platform. The “Dance Monkey” official music video has surpassed 1.6 billion views on YouTube, while the track has eclipsed six billion streams globally and earned 4x platinum certification from the RIAA in the US as well as multi-platinum or diamond certification in sixteen other countries. Plus, “Dance Monkey” hit #4 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, making “Dance Monkey” the first top five Hot 100 hit solely written by a woman in over eight years. In Australia, “Dance Monkey” holds the all-time record for the most weeks spent at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart, while in the UK “Dance Monkey” has made Tones And I the longest running #1 of all time by a female artist on the Official Singles Chart. The New York Times detailed the making of “Dance Monkey” in their Diary of a Song video series, speaking with Tones And I about her journey from local busker to global star.

About Tones and I 

Originally from Australia’s Mornington Peninsula, Tones And I traveled to Byron Bay in early 2018 to take a chance at busking. On the first day she had crowds spilling onto the street. Tones quit her retail job and decided to make Byron her new home where she lived out of her van for a year, honing her songwriting and busking every weekend. A year later, she had one of the biggest songs in the world with her global smash “Dance Monkey.”

In the hours leading up to the release of the deluxe edition, The Avalanches shared the visualizer for “Tonight May Have To Last Me All My Life” (MF DOOM Remix), one of the remarkable remixes exclusive to the deluxe edition. A previously unheard vocal contribution on the track serves as a bittersweet homage from the late, enigmatic master of the hip-hop underground, who passed away last October. Daniel Dumilethe, who performed as MF DOOM, was praised by The New York Times for forging “a style that was intricate and imaginative, calling on both esoteric and lowbrow references as well as cartoonish imagery in lyrics that could be poignantly emotional.” Born in London and raised on Long Island, Dumilethe released six albums plus full-length collaborations with Madlib and Danger Mouse, among others.

Prince Paul, the de facto fourth member of De La Soul and renowned remixer of Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick and Queen Latifah, revisits the album’s exhilarating title track and acclaimed British producer/DJ Leon Vynehall brings a profound sense of reflection to his remix of “Tonight May Have To Last Me All My Life.” The deluxe edition also includes fresh mixes from Mario Caldato Jr., who produced the Beastie Boys’ multi-Platinum classics Paul’s Boutique, Check Your Head, Ill Communication and Hello Nasty.

No album ever made history quite like The Avalanches‘ debut. A meticulous labor of love sifted from the second-hand record bins of Melbourne, Since I Left You was an unprecedented act of musical invention filtered through the loving hands of young music-obsessed DJs and musicians to blossom into the ultimate feelgood world party soundtrack. The boundary-pushing orchestration of samples, some say as many as 3,500 uniquely sourced and spliced sound fragments, was unanimously acclaimed as an act of technical genius. But the glowing heart of the project, a story of oneness through time, space, and infinite diversity, was the magic spell that made the world melt in elation.

Since I Left You’s achievement was to break the easy but facile equation of depth with darkness, intensity with misery: on this record, it is happiness that is the complicated and mysterious state.”

The release and subsequent touring in support of Since I Left You was followed by a 16-year radio silence, which was broken with the release of The Avalanches’ sophomore album, Wildflower, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Vinyl Albums chart and atop the Australian Albums chart in 2016. Their third album,  We Will Always Love You, was awarded four stars by Rolling Stone and won the prestigious 2020 Australian Music Prize.

Announced as the inaugural Luminary Artists in Residence, The Avalanches will be performing Since I Left You with Australia’s Adelaide Symphony Orchestra on July 30 as part of “Illuminate Adelaide”: a major new event celebrating innovation, music, art, and light.
