Rileyy Lanez – “Left 4 Me”

RISING R&B SINGER/SONGWRITER RILEYY LANEZ DEBUTS NEW SONG “LEFT 4 ME”

Watch the Official Video HERE

Today, budding R&B songstress Rileyy Lanez has released a new song “Left 4 Me” – listen HERE. Written by Rileyy and producers Click N Press (Dreamville, Queen Naija), “Left 4 Me” chronicles how one can feel alone and fed up with imbalances in a relationship. The track comes alongside an official video with Rileyy’s hometown of NYC as the backdrop. Watch HERE.

In speaking about the track, Rileyy says: “‘Left 4 Me’ is about a time I was so busy dwelling on the person I was with and making their mind up instead of focusing on me. Writing the song was a lesson in disguise instead of dwelling on something I can’t have, it taught me to focus on all the things I do have and that’s myself, my career, happiness, freedom etc. The video shows that shift, I’m literally in the street dancing with my girls, releasing the hurt, being free, and moving on.”

Born and raised in the Bronx, 19-year-old Rileyy Lanez pulls no punches with her heart-on-her sleeve R&B music. In May of 2019, she released her original song “I’m Leaving,” which has over 16M streams and 7M+ video views. Rileyy is also featured on Lil Tjay’s album track “Post To Be,” and just last week she launched her vlog series “LANEZ LIFE” – watch the first episode HERE.

LIL MOSEY – BLUEBERRY FAYGO

LIL MOSEY RELEASES VISUAL FOR HIS MASSIVE HIT “BLUEBERRY FAYGO”
 
Lil Mosey (Mogul Vision/Interscope Records) took the internet by storm with the unofficial leak of his now-massive hit record, “Blueberry Faygo.” Now, as the official release continues to climb the charts with over 150 million global streams, the Seattle rapper is ready to bless fans with an equally enticing video, debuting on Lyrical Lemonade. Directed by Cole Bennett, the visual provides a great deal of escapism as Lil Mosey enjoys a vibrant and sunny pool party. Bennett manages to incorporate everything from synchronized swimmers to an enormous balloon pit as Lil Mosey showcases his more jovial side. The video, shot at the renowned Hype House, also features TikTok influencers Addison Rae and Lil Huddy. Both dancers played a major role in helping the song to go viral. You can watch the video HERE.

Since its February release, “Blueberry Faygo” continues to climb the charts, boasting impressive stats. Jumping 15 slots from last week, the single now sits at #38 on Billboard’s Hot 100. It also holds the #20 position on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart; a 13 slot increase from the previous week. The single is now #3 on the Spotify US Chart. Produced by Callan, the track features a subtle sample of Johnny Gill’s “My, My, My.” An early version of the track ripped through the internet in late 2019 spawning a number of imposters and a detailed write-up in Rolling Stone’s article “The Curious Case of a Leaked Hit.” The situation marked the end of a wildly exciting year for the artist who released his debut album in November before embarking on the duly-titled Certified Hitmaker World Tour. The project peaked at #12 on the Billboard 200 and featured appearances by Gunna, AJ Tracey, Trippie Redd and Chris Brown. In 2018, Lil Mosey released his first project, Northsbest which featured the platinum hit “Noticed” and which laid the framework for the inaugural Northsbest Fest in Seattle. Due to the current global pandemic, Lil Mosey recently announced the postponement of his international headlining tour, originally slated for summer 2020. Fans are asked to stay tuned for rescheduled dates.

Feedbacks from the public

“The fact that his record was co-signed by fellow Memphis stars, Project Pat and Juicy J, is a telling sign that Duke Deuce is truly on the rise.” – HYPEBEAST

“2020 could be Duke Deuce’s year” -CLASH

“Although it won’t be long until fans move on to the next hottest hip-hop dance, something tells us Duke Deuce has the star power and quality music to ride this moment for a whole lot longer” – COMPLEX

“Already showing the ability to stand out on the timeline, and with the support of Quality Control, Duke might just be ready to take off.” – LYRICAL LEMONADE

“He’s the best parts of every era of Memphis while being in tune with the new generation of rap.” – FLOSS MAG

Breakout Memphis Rapper

Duke Deuce drops his hotly anticipated new tape, Memphis Massacre 2 on Quality Control Music/YRN, the follow up to 2018’s Memphis Massacre. Listen to Memphis Massacre 2 HERE. Watch the video for “Crunk Ain’t Dead Remix (feat. Lil Jon, Juicy J, Project Pat)” HERE. Duke has been on a steady rise catching attention for bringing back an era of crunk music that originated in Memphis but became popular out of Atlanta.

Duke grew up around the sound and recalls the likes of Three6Mafia,8Ball, and MJG as influences as well as his father Duke Nitty who produced the Memphis classic “S.O.U.T.H. Parkway” by Gangsta Blac. Duke Nitty is also credited as a producer for few tracks on MM2. The album sees Duke navigate through diverse production and multiple styles like a veteran. An energetic listen over 12 tracks that could only be made by someone that lives and breathes this scene. It’s a true come up for a rising star in rap. Alongside his music, Duke’s unique dance moves are part of what brought him to Quality Control. After Offset saw one of Duke’s videos, he flew him out to the studio to meet and ended up signing him to QC. Gaining co-signs from the whole QC family as well as Cardi B, Duke Deuce is quickly becoming a recognizable name in the space. Late last year Duke released the video for “Crunk Ain’t Dead,” now at over 10 million views on YouTube.

Following its success, hip-hop legends Lil Jon, Juicy J, and Project Pat hopped on a remix that released just last week. Duke commented on working with them, “It was legendary working beside guys I listened to as a kid growing up in Memphis in the studio with my dad.”

Featuring high-octane animated footage from the “SOUND & FURY” film, the visual captures the breakneck action, frenetic pace, and intensity of the artist’s immersive vision set to psychedelic disco breaks, ripping guitars, and stadium-size hooks. The video was directed by Simpson’s “SOUND & FURY” collaborator, founder of influential animation studio Kamikaze Douga, and sought-after filmmaker Jumpei Mizusaki.

Simpson’s live performances and album have been met with fan and critical praise alike: 

“A PROUDLY REBELLIOUS RECORD.” – Los Angeles Times

“Sound and Fury begins much in the same way as Simpson’s recent live set: with AN EXPLORATORY PSYCH-BLUES JAM …As a guitarist, Simpson is uninterested in conventional guitar god shredding; his playing is CURIOUS, FLUID AND FULL OF WONDER.” – Rolling Stone

“…he can glide between synth-rock, glam, dancefloor-fillers; songwriting is king in his world. It doesn’t matter if he’s playing a dreamy campfire song or a two-minute instrumental stomper. Simpson is the one dictating his sound…” – Pitchfork

“Anyone who says guitar music is dead hasn’t listened to the new Sturgill Simpson record.” – Entertainment Weekly

“Sound & Fury is the best case for musicians using Netflix in wild ways…..THE YEAR’S MOST HYPNOTIZING LONGFORM MUSIC VIDEO.” – Indiewire

“The Sound & Fury closer is the BEST THING SIMPSON HAS EVER DONE …It’s hard to imagine any other rock ’n’ roll show achieving anything like the same visceral power.” – Billboard

“POWERHOUSE PERFORMANCE … Simpson was here, in a cozy punk club, seeking a real connection, making a real change in the world.” – The Washington Post

About Sturgill Simpson:

A true iconoclast, GRAMMY® Award-winning singer and songwriter Sturgill Simpson has quietly, yet irrevocably disrupted country, rock, and culture at large since his 2013 independent debut High Top Mountain. In 2014, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music garnered his first GRAMMY® Award nod and claimed spots on Rolling Stone’s “50 Best Albums of 2014” and NPR’s “50 Favorite Albums of 2014.” 2016 saw him reach a pivotal turning point on A Sailor’s Guide To Earth. It would be honored with the GRAMMY® Award for “Best Country Album.” Like only he can, Simpson threw the rulebook out the window and flipped everything upside down on 2019’s “SOUND & FURY.” Produced by Simpson, the bulk of the album was recorded primarily at the McGuire Motor Inn in Waterford, Michigan, with his bandmates Bobby Emmett, Chuck Bartels, Miles Miller, who all serve as co-producers along with GRAMMY nominee John Hill (Cage The Elephant, Portugal.The Man, Bleachers). It lived up to his pledge to deliver as “a sleazy, steamy rock n roll record” and was accompanied by a Netflix anime film of the same name, which merged American rock music with Japanese animation in a revolutionary new way. Last year, he also contributed “The Dead Don’t Die” as the original theme song for writer and director Jim Jamursch’s acclaimed The Dead Don’t Die film. Additionally, he remains committed to philanthropy supporting non-profit organizations such as the Special Forces Foundation.

BUD LIGHT CALLS ON FANS TO HELP CHOOSE THE SUPER BOWL COMMERCIAL FEATURING POST MALONE

Bud Light Goes Inside the Brain of its #1 Fan, Post Malone, as he Stars In Two New Commercials for Bud Light and the Newly-Launched Bud Light Seltzer

NEW YORK, Jan. 29, 2020 — Today, Bud Light unveiled“#PostyStore” and “#PostyBar”, two new spots featuring Bud Light Seltzer and Grammy-nominated Bud Light fan, Post Malone. Instead of a traditional launch, the brand is opening up their biggest marketing moment of the year to the fans. Bud Light made two funny ads featuring Post Malone and cannot decide which one to take to Super Bowl LIV as their official in-game commercial. Now the brand is looking to their fans to share their input and help determine which commercial will air in the big game.

Starting this morning through Thursday, January 30, fans can visit Bud Light social channels to watch both commercials and share their input to help Bud Light make the decision on which advertisement to feature during Super Bowl LIV. Fans will need to tune in to the big game to learn which one Bud Light decided on.

“It feels cool to be in a Bud Light commercial, especially a Bud Light Super Bowl commercial, which is a huge deal,” said Post Malone. “I just love the taste and the camaraderie. So it’s a real honor and blessing for me to be able to be a part of such a big moment.”

Both advertisements take you into the brain of musician and Bud Light enthusiast, Post Malone. “#PostyStore” shows Post inside a convenience as he faces a decision a predicament: does he purchase his go-to drink Bud Light or the new Bud Light Seltzer? This predicament sparks confusion and mayhem in Post’s brain, and the store. Ultimately, he remembers that he’s rich and can afford to purchase both – who doesn’t love a happy ending? The second spot,“#PostyBar” follows Post Malone into a bar where he discovers Bud Light Seltzer Mango. Post goes in for a sip and his senses begin to determine what it tastes like, how it smells and if he likes it. Just like the rest of America, Post Malone and his taste buds give Bud Light Seltzer Mango his seal of approval.

“We are so fortunate to have two great Super Bowl spots this year, but only have room for one. We love this year’s Super Bowl campaign because not only does it feature our brand’s biggest fan, Post Malone, but we’re also giving people a chance to help us choose which spot to air,” said Andy Goeler, VP of Marketing for Bud Light. “Bud Light Seltzer offers another easy-drinking option that aligns with what our fans know, love and expect from Bud Light. We’re thrilled with the consumer response on the product so far and are excited to bring it to the Super Bowl stage with Post. The situation that plays out in Post’s head is one that many consumers might have too, but don’t worry, just like Post, you can get both Bud Light and Bud Light Seltzer too.”

“#PostyStore” and “#PostyBar”continues the campaign behind the Bud Light Seltzer narrative, previously introduced in the recent commercial “The Message” which ran during the NFL Playoffs, leaning into consumer’s questions of what is a hard seltzer and the difference between Bud Light and Bud Light Seltzer.

Bud Light Seltzer offers an easy-drinking hard seltzer with a hint of delicious fruit flavor to deliver the most refreshing taste possible. It is 100 calories, 5% ABV, has <1g of sugar and comes in four great flavors – black cherry, mango, lemon lime and strawberry.
