About Renaissance

Beyoncés seventh studio  Renaissance,” has arrived. This is Beyoncé’s first album in six years and first since her world-conquering Lemonade. The 16-song project cites production by Hit-Boy for her song THIQUE.” Hit-Boy, who’s no stranger to collaborating with artists, is responsible for producing a string of anthemic records for Beyoncé (Sorry,” “Flawless,” and “Bow Down / I Been On” to name a few). 

Beyoncé stated in her Instagram post, “Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time in the world. It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving. My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration. I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to release the wiggle. Ha! And to feel as unique, strong, and sexy as you are.”

Last July, Parkwood Entertainment, an imprint of Columbia Records, made pop history with Renaissance artwork.

Beyoncé’s cover art displayed her prominently seated on a crystal horse with a black background. While both of her hands appear to be placed on the steed, her upper half is on the side and facing us.

Detroit native and IMG Model Ebony Riley releases new EP via 360 MAGAZINE.

Ebony Riley

The R&B game has its next big thing in Ebony Riley. With her new EP, ebony, out today via Interscope Records, the Detroit native makes her case as one of the genre’s most thrilling prospects and adds her name to the long list of stars reared in the Motor City. In just seven songs, Ebony, previously known as “Riley Montana,” delivers an unforgettable project that blends the flavor of today’s R&B sounds with her charming mix of sass, sensuality and sensitivity. Whether its charged flirtation over an upbeat ’80s sample, cussing out a soon-to-be-ex lover out, or mediating on that eternal question – “Why me?” – ebony runs a range of emotions and is sure to have listeners reaching for the replay button. “I just want people to feel heard and understood when they listen to my music,” Ebony says. “I want to take people on a journey.” Join that journey and listen to the full ebony EP HERE.

Focus track “Deuce Deuce” sets the tone. On the song, she flips what could be a sad post-cheating revelation on its head, instead rewriting the typical narrative to come out on top. The kiss-off track comes complete with its official music video, featuring a cameo appearance from Lori Harvey. Watch the full “Deuce Deuce” video HERE. Further highlights include contributions from a who’s who of proven R&B hitmakers, including GRAMMY winner James Fauntleroy (“Why”), and GRAMMY nominees Shea Taylor, who produced four of the EP’s songs, Muni Long and Jeff Gitty (“Draws”).

A nine-year veteran of the modeling industry, Ebony Riley has graced the catwalk for top fashion houses and appeared in exclusive editorial spreads, including Vogue France and Harper’s Bazaar. But, the millennial covergirl notes, “Music was always on the menu.” Thanks to her mother and grandmother, Ebony had an early musical education in gospel and ‘90s R&B, and traces of such influences – The Clark Sisters, Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu – exist in her own music. “I draw from all of them in my work,” the singer makes clear.

To celebrate the EP’s release and Ebony’s achievements, Interscope and Lenny S hosted exclusive listenings in New York and Los Angeles for partners and tastemakers to rousing reception. East Coast attendees included Drake, Justin and Hailey Bieber, Meek Mill, A$AP Ferg, and more, while Kelly Rowland, Coco Jones, The Internet’s Syd, Lori Harvey, Muni Long, Jozzi and others graced the LA festivities. If there was any doubt about Ebony’s appeal, all questions were answered when guests heard the EP and watched the “Deuce Deuce video.” The verdict? The crowd screaming, “run it back!!”

Gonçalo Santana releases Brainless via 360 MAGAZINE.

Gonçalo Santana – Brainless

‘Brainless is a poignant piece of prose. Each single is thoughtfully conceived and evokes emotions. The future of this Swiss crooner is bright.’360

Gonçalo Santana is a singer, songwriter, and producer based in Switzerland. Heavily influenced by his family, Gonçalo discovered his passion for music at an early age. Thanks to his father, also a singer, Gonçalo was exposed to a variety of distinguished artists. Like Prince, Luther Vandross, Bruce Springsteen, and Stevie Wonder. He began to write his first verses at the age of Eleven on the napkins and notebooks of boredom. In the end, some songs were even recorded by him and in a more professional manner by his father. Over the years, Gonçalo sought refuge to express himself through words that led to the songs.

In November 2021 Gonçalo released Empty Poetry. Produced by Portugal’s singer and producer Macaia. After taking the time to release new music, Gonçalo Santana released his second single called Verity in 2022, which exceeded 20,000 feeds on Spotify alone. An R&B-inspired song from the early 2000s. On January 27th, Gonçalo Santana finally released its first EP, Brainless.

About Brainless

Brainless came to life when Gonçalo Santana was in a place of vulnerability. Each song represents a mark in time for him, where he felt the need to express himself in order to get it out of his head. Almost every song from Brainless comes from a personal experience. Musically, Gonçalo felt the need to go back in time and resurrect a genre of music that didn’t get much attention in our current times. That’s when he teamed up with the Portuguese music producer Macaia and created 6 songs heavily inspired in the old school R&B and Gospel music.

Lola Brooke releases new music via 360 MAGAZINE.

BoogieWit Da Hoodie

Primed for global impact, Brooklyn M.V.P. and 2023’s artist to watch, Lola Brooke will support multi-platinum chart-topping rap superstar A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie on his upcoming international headline tour. This marks her very first international tour, introducing audiences everywhere to her show-stopping stage presence and powerhouse performances. The North American leg kicks off on February 7 at Mission Ballroom in Denver, CO, canvases the country, and concludes with a massive homecoming gig on March 4 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. She jets across the pond for the UK leg, beginning on March 22 at O2 Victoria Warehouse in Manchester, UK. Tickets are available HERE. Lola also plans to perform at multiple high profile showcases at SXSW in Austin this March. 

Lola continues her meteoric rise on her own terms. Her breakout single “Don’t Play With It” [feat. Billy B] has eclipsed over 50 million streams and cracked the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay Chart at #29 while she just teamed up with Flo Milli and Maiya The Don for the official remix to “Conceited.” Rolling Stone pegged her as one of “11 Rappers Set to Make it Big in 2023” and raved, “she bellows her bars like they could knock down walls.” POPSUGARconfirmed, “Lola Brooke’s big moment has finally arrived.” 

There’s no stopping or slowing Lola Brooke down though…

Recently signing to Arista Records in collaboration with Team Eighty Productions, Lola has been deemed as a ‘musician set to take over in 2023’ via Vogue, ‘artist you need to know before 2023‘ via Ebony MagazineHot 97‘s ‘Who’s Next: Class of 2022,’ and one of the ‘Best Female Rappers of 2022’ via HipHopDXLola Brooke has established herself as a breakout talent and the next New York artist to watch. With over 50 million streams to date, Lola’s most acclaimed hit, “Don’t Play With It,” stands as one of the most in-demand songs in today’s current music landscape. The Recording Academy via GRAMMY.com recently highlighted the smash single as a viral phenomenon that defined Rap music’s dominance on the social media platform. To date, the track has garnered over 500k + TikTok video creations, peaked at #9 on TikTok Viral chart, and has garnered 100 + million views on the platform.

All signs point to a massive new year for Lola. Last week, Lil Kim invited Lola to perform at her ‘Harlem Festival Of Culture with The Jump Off With Lil Kim And Friends‘ show at the Apollo Theater. The momentous moment, which also served as Lola’s first time performing at the Apollo, was topped off as Lil Kim praised the rising star furthermore stating “I’m so proud of you.” Lola also recently pulled up at Future’s sold-out show at Barclays Center in her hometown of Brooklyn, NY, as well as a recent A Boogie wit da Hoodie show eliciting massive roars from the crowd as soon as she hit the stage.

Lola recently unleashed her latest lyrical salvo “Here I Come.” Showcasing her slick, savage, and sharp flow, the track and official music video have earned her widespread acclaim. Right out of the gate, Pitchfork highlighted it as “The must-hear rap song of the day” and warned, “Her aura is intimidating; like a black widow, she shows that she’ll seduce and devour to get to the top.” REVOLT christened it “a bold new declaration of her presence in the music scene,” and OkayPlayer touted it among the “Best Hip-Hop Videos to Drop Last Week” and noted, “Lola Brooke’s ‘Here I Come’ is a swift-paced video that centers on her gritty and fiery rhymes.”

However, it just paves the way for more to come. With Arista Records and Team Eighty Productions in her corner, Lola Brooke has her sights set on 2023 with plans for more music very soon.

Sam Smith releases Gloria via 360 MAGAZINE.

Sam Smith – Gloria Album

Multi-Platinum, GRAMMY®, BRIT, Golden Globe, and Oscar winning artist/songwriter Sam Smith released Gloria, their fourth studio album, today via Capitol Records. Download/stream the album HERE. Smith will perform at the 65th Annual GRAMMY Awards® on February 5 and kick off the North American leg of GLORIA The Tour on July 25. The official video for Smith’s new single, “I’m Not Here To Make Friends,” was unveiled today. Smith declares, “I’m not here to make friends…I need a lover!” on the bold disco-pop track, which they wrote with Stargate and Jessie Reyez and recorded with producer Calvin Harris in Los Angeles.

In the accompanying video, Smith emerges from a helicopter, dressed in the stunning hot pink gown they wore on “Saturday Night Live,” and is escorted into a sumptuous costume ball held at a historic English estate. Helmed by Ukrainian director Tanu Muiño (Katy Perry, Normani), the video was shot at Ashridge House, which was once a royal residence to King Henry VIII and Princess Elizabeth I. La Big Bertha makes a cameo appearance.

Watch “I’m Not Here To Make Friends” HERE.

Gloria also includes “Gimme” feat. Koffee and Jessie Reyez, which Billboard hailed as “a lush, dancehall riff,” and the GRAMMY®-nominated, RIAA-certified Platinum single “Unholy” feat. Kim Petras, which spent three weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and four weeks atop the UK Official Singles Chart. Amassing over one billion combined global streams to date, “Unholy” was hailed as one of the best songs of 2022 by numerous critics.

View their recent performance of “Unholy” on “Saturday Night Live” HERE. See Smith, accompanied by a choir, perform the album’s title track for the audience – and Sharon Stone – HERE. “Gloria” is not a nod to a person, past or present, but to that bristling, enigmatic life force, which Smith has christened Gloria. They see it as “my queer love hymn, saying life is a song to Gloria, the thing I can’t put a word to. I don’t know if it’s nature or a feminine energy inside me that I’m setting free.”

Smith’s fourth album is not only a creative revelation but something of a personal revolution. After three soulful, poignant albums – In The Lonely Hour (2014), The Thrill Of It All (2017) and Love Goes (2020) – that were rewarded with a staggering 37 million albums sold, 276 million singles, 50 billion multi-platform streams and a host of honors that include four GRAMMY Awards, three BRITs, one Oscar and a Golden Globe, Smith embarked on their fourth album with a self-appointed challenge.

“I was not gonna write a heartbreak album,” Smith declares. “A challenge that was huge! I wanted this to be the opposite. When I was a kid, just walking out of the house, I needed armor. Rihanna, Robyn, Beyoncé, they were my armor. And I feel like SGloria is the album I needed that I never had.”

“Sam Smith’s ‘Gloria’ Is Their Deepest Album Yet,” observed Rolling Stone, noting that it “features guests like Kim Petras, Koffee, and Ed Sheeran, but their own personal growth is at the heart of the music.” Smith explains, “It feels like emotional, sexual and spiritual liberation. It feels like I’ve got my faith back in my work. So it was beautiful, with this album, to sing freely again, for me. It feels like a coming of age.”

Rev Al to Eulogize Tyre Nichols

On Tuesday in Memphis

Graphic Video via CNN

Reverend Al Sharpton will deliver the eulogy on Tuesday at the funeral of Tyre Nichols, the Memphis man who was beaten and killed by five police officers following a traffic stop.

Earlier this week, prosecutors announced that the police officers would be charged with murder. They were previously fired from their jobs.

“The charges against the police officers who brutally killed Tyre Nichols in Memphis are a necessary first step in delivering justice for Tyre and his family, although nothing will ever be enough to fill the void that his loss has left,” said Reverend Sharpton. “There is no point to putting a body camera on a cop if you aren’t going to hold them accountable when the footage shows them relentlessly beating a man to death. Firings are not enough. Indictments and arrests are not convictions. As we’ve done in the past—with George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and others –we will stand by this family until justice is done. A conviction sends a message that to the nation that cops cannot hide behind their badge after committing a heinous action like this.”

The funeral will be held at Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church, located at 70 N Bellevue Boulevard in Memphis on Wednesday, Feb. 1 at 10:30 a.m.

In addition to Reverend Sharpton, civil rights attorney Ben Crump will also be in attendance to deliver a call to action.

Attorney Ben Crump and the parents of Tyre Nichols will appear on ‘Politicsnation w/ Al Sharpton’ on THIS Sunday, Jan.29th at 5pm ET on MSNBC. Be sure to Tune in!

Reverend Sharpton Speaks at African American Faith Leader’s Summit

Reverend Sharpton joined scores of clergy leaders on Thursday for the African American Faith Leaders convened by U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.

“In such a milestone year for civil rights, it is tempting to celebrate the progress we have seen in the past six decades. But the truth of the matter is that we cannot afford to be so caught up with celebrations that we do not seize the opportunity to act upon the reality: that the threats to our democracy and civil liberties are at historic levels, and Black Americans continue to bear the weight of,” said Reverend Sharpton during his remarks. “It is in this spirit that the African American Faith Leaders Summit has been convened. In 2023, it is quintessential that as Black faith leaders and justice advocates, we have the support of our elected officials to continue the work of dismantling structures that stand in the way of equity, safety, and wellbeing for all Americans.”

In addition to Reverend Sharpton, Reverend A.R. Bernard, pastor of the Christian Cultural Center was a speaker among others, including Senator Raphael Warnock and Senator Chuck Schumer.

The African American Faith Leaders Summit was an incredible event that brought together national and New York faith leaders to foster deep lasting partnerships that will strengthen our communities,” said Senator Gillibrand.“I’m proud that inspiring leaders like Senator Schumer, Senator Warnock and Reverend Sharpton can meet with many of New York’s most important faith leaders.Houses of worship form the backbones of our communities and I was excited to hear directly from local leaders about how I can best serve them as we enter the new Congress.”

“Loudmouth” Now Streaming on Apple TV and Amazon  

Amazon and Apple TV has started streaming “Loudmouth: The Life and Battles of Al Sharpton” on its platform.  Join National Action Network in support of this documentary that chronicles Reverend Sharpton’s activism. Consider hosting a watch party for our national 2023 kickoff tour.

Twenty Years of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood via 360 MAGAZINE.

Twenty years at Goodwood

The home of Rolls-Royce from 2003-2023.

Rolls-Royce’s unprecedented success comes as, in January 2023, the company marks the 20th anniversary of the Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood. Its transformation – from offering a single model, Phantom, and building just one motor car a day – to today’s record figures is the result of a long-term strategy based on sustainable growth, careful management and planning, and the successful reinvention of the brand.

The past decade, in particular, has seen Rolls‑Royce consciously refine and rejuvenate its brand and product portfolio to reflect its clients’ changing requirements, tastes, and demographics while retaining its innate exclusivity and rarity. As both a true luxury house and an innovative, engineering-led company, Rolls‑Royce represents, as it always has, the very highest levels of craftsmanship, technology, luxury and creativity. 

  • Rolls-Royce celebrates the first 20 years of production at its Goodwood manufacturing centre
  • A story of continuous progress and evolution, told through 20 individual models
  • Each created and handmade at the Home of Rolls-Royce since 2003
  • Includes EX experimental cars, which revived a naming convention last seen in the 1950s
  • Describes an arc of technical innovation and responses to changing client requirements
  • Leads to the new all-electric era ushered in by the Rolls-Royce Spectre

1.      Phantom, 2003
The original ‘Goodwood Phantom’ was the seventh generation to wear what is now the longest-established nameplate in automotive history. With its marriage of technology, comfort, performance, and the signature ‘Magic Carpet Ride’, it set a new standard for every model that has followed.

2.     100EX, 2004
Produced to mark the centenary of the first meeting between Charles Rolls and Henry Royce, this was the first Experimental Car produced by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars under BMW Group ownership. Powered by an extraordinary 9-litre V16 engine, it was never intended for production but was the direct forebear for what would become the celebrated Phantom Drophead Coupé.

3.      Phantom Extended, 2005
Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2005, Phantom Extended was 250 mm (9.8 in) longer than the ‘standard’ Phantom. This created additional legroom in the rear cabin, making this model especially popular with clients who prefer to be chauffeur-driven.

4.     101EX, 2006
Like 100EX, this experimental prototype was built on a shortened version of Phantom’s aluminium space frame, with the body panels constructed in carbon-fibre composite. It would find enduring life and global fame in its eventual production guise as Phantom Coupé, powered by the iconic 6.75-litre V12 engine.

5.      Phantom Drophead Coupé, 2007
One of the most sought-after models ever produced at Goodwood, the Phantom Drophead Coupé stunned the world on its debut. With distinctive styling derived from 100EX (see above), its defining feature is the interior wood veneering that flows around the cabin into the teak tonneau cover, inspired by a racing yacht deck.

6.     Phantom Coupé, 2008
With its pillarless construction, this was a true hardtop two-door coupé – the first Rolls-Royce of its type to be produced in more than two decades. Like its drophead sibling, Phantom Coupé incorporated many of the design features and construction techniques developed on the experimental 101EX.

7.      200EX, 2009
Presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2009, 200EX was the experimental car that responded to client feedback for a more approachable and driver-orientated Rolls-Royce.

8.     Ghost, 2010
Designed for a new generation of ascendent Rolls-Royce clients, Ghost immediately won praise for its simple, contemporary design and effortless, dynamic performance. To date it is the most commercially successful model in Rolls-Royce history.

9.      102EX, 2011
Known as the Phantom Experimental Electric (EE), this one-off electric prototype version of Phantom began Rolls-Royce’s exploration into suitable technology to power future generations of its motor cars. 

10.     Ghost Extended, 2011
Responding to feedback from clients who prefer to be chauffeur-driven, Rolls-Royce introduced an extended version of Ghost, offering additional space and comfort for rear-seat passengers while maintaining the motor car’s more focused driving characteristics.

11.      Wraith, 2013
The fastback Wraith was intended as the ultimate gran turismo; a car that embodied the bold, pioneering spirit, sense of adventure and love of speed that inspired the marque’s co-founder, The Hon Charles Stewart Rolls.

12.     Dawn, 2016
The definitive super-luxury four-seater convertible, Dawn, was designed to enable four adults to travel sociably together in complete comfort. The roof is a design and engineering masterpiece: dubbed ‘the Silent Ballet’ the mechanism operates in complete silence in just 22 seconds, and at cruising speeds of up to 50km/h; with the roof closed, the interior is as silent as a Rolls-Royce Wraith.

13.      Black Badge Wraith and Black Badge Ghost, 2016
The Black Badge family introduced the world to the marque’s enfants terribles, subverting perceptions of what a Rolls-Royce ‘should’ be. These variants are more powerful and specifically engineered to deliver an even more direct, engaging driving experience, while still offering near-limitless opportunities for Bespoke personalisation.The result was an even more agile and involving motoring experience, without compromising the intrinsic elements of the effortless Rolls-Royce ‘Magic Carpet Ride’.

14.     103EX, 2016
Perhaps the most radical experimental car ever produced at Goodwood, Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100, codenamed 103EX, presented the marque’s uncompromised view of the future of luxury mobility. Fully electric, with a completely autonomous drive and enhanced artificial intelligence, it made an unequivocal statement about Rolls-Royce’s future direction, both in terms of electric power and effortless, highly personalised travel.

15.      ‘Sweptail’, 2017
Rolls-Royce revived the art of coachbuilding with the magnificent ‘Sweptail’, described at the time as ‘automotive Haute Couture’. Inspired by coachbuilt Rolls-Royces and racing yachts of the 1920s and 30s, this unique two-seat coupé featured a panoramic glass roof and a pair of attaché cases concealed behind the coach doors.

16    Phantom 8, 2017
No nameplate occupies a more revered place in the pantheon of great cars and indeed, luxury goods as Phantom. The task to re-invent it for a bold, new era was therefore approached with exquisite care. The result was a Phantom that responded to the changing sensibilities of a new generation whilst maintaining the iconic presence that ensures its ongoing status as the “Best Car in the World”.

17.      Cullinan, 2018
Cullinan is truly the ‘Rolls-Royce of SUVs’, designed and built to take younger, successful high-net-worth individuals to the ends of the Earth in ultimate comfort. With its ‘effortless, everywhere’ capabilities, endless Bespoke possibilities, and unique lifestyle features – including the Recreation Module – it has become one of the most desirable luxury goods on the planet.

18.     Black Badge Cullinan, 2019
Cullinan revelled in its new, darker persona, which included a more powerful 6.7-litre V12 engine, black 22-inch forged alloy wheels, Pantheon grille and Spirit of Ecstasy mascot, plus the first painted brake callipers ever fitted to a factory-delivered Rolls-Royce.

19.      New Ghost, 2020
When it came to present a new Ghost, Rolls-Royce responded to the requirement from a new ascendent generation of successful women and men for a motor car, perfectly aligned with new codes of luxury. The result is an aesthetic that prioritises minimalist design and celebrates material substance. The motor car was also engineered to possess an engaging and dynamic character with no compromise to the serenity and comfort in the rear suite.

20.     Boat Tail, 2021
The Boat Tail commissions took Rolls-Royce Coachbuild into new realms of complexity and audacity, in a demanding technical and creative project that lasted almost four years. A genuine objet d’art, this entirely handcrafted motor car demonstrated the marque’s commitment to coachbuilding as a central part of its future direction and strategy.
