Leading up to Clancy’s release, Twenty One Pilots performed the new songs along with fan favorites across a run of super intimate live performances – which included sold-out shows in New York City, Mexico City, London and Berlin. And hosted listening parties all around the world for fans to hear the album before release, including one in Dublin, at Spindizzy records.

“The new album from Wallows sees the Californian trio embarking on their biggest chapter yet.” -DIY MAGAZINE

Multi-Platinum alt-rock trio Wallows release their long awaited third studio album, Model, available now via Atlantic Records HERE. Produced by GRAMMY® Award-winner John Congleton and mostly recorded at the legendary Sunset Sounds, Model includes the new single, “You,” which is joined by an official music video directed by Nina Ljeti (Phoebe Bridgers, Crowded House) – WATCH HERE.

“For this one we wanted to keep it experimental but also create the most concise record we could possibly make,” says Dylan Minnette. In that process, the band stayed true to a highly intuitive and free-flowing approach that Cole Preston describes as “letting the song find itself”—a journey that found them generating nearly three albums’ worth of material by the time they left the studio. “Every time we make an album, it reinforces the idea that you can’t ever fake anything; you’ve got to create what feels the most real and inspiring and fulfilling to you,” says Braeden Lemasters.

Already hailed by Rolling Stone as “arena-ready,” the album also includes the singles “Your Apartment,” “Calling After Me” (which marked Wallows’ biggest streaming debut thus far), “Bad Dream,” and “A Warning.” An array of cinematic music videos, visualizers, trailers, and more are streaming now at YouTube HERE.

Wallows marked today’s arrival of Model with an exclusive live performance this morning as part of the 2024 Citi Concert Series on NBC’s TODAY.  Leading into the album release last night, Wallows performed live from Bowery Ballroom in New York as part of Amazon Music’s City Sessions streamed on Twitch and Prime Video (an archive of the full show will be available at a later date). In addition, the band have spent much of the past week in London for a slate of very special release week record store events, including stripped down live performances, in-store signings, and more. The busy schedule continues into next week with further events scheduled for New York City, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and Long Beach, CA, along with global virtual events. Complete details and remaining ticket information, as well as an exclusive digital lyric book is available via the band’s Linktree.

Model is available in a wide range of physical formats, including standard clear vinyl, CD, clear cassette, and limited edition “Sunset” vinyl (Lemon, Tangerine & Apple three-color mix) available exclusively in Wallows’ web store. Three web store exclusive variants with three alternate covers are also on offer, each featuring one of the band members’ photos, an exclusive 7-inch with a different bonus track for all three, unique poster with the corresponding band members’ image, and a slipmat, as well as a different color vinyl record for each (either Apple, Lemon, or Tangerine) – a limited supply of these 3 variants will also be available at the NY (May 25) and LA (May 27) Model pop up shops. Additional vinyl variants of Model include “Horizon” colored vinyl (Solid Orchid & Translucent Orange Crush) available at Independent Record Stores, “Dusk” vinyl (Translucent Ruby & Translucent Grape) for Urban Outfitters, Translucent Sea Blue for Barnes & Noble, and Solid White with Sunset Image Labels for Amazon.

4x-GRAMMY NOMINATED SUPERSTAR BEBE REXHA BRINGS THE ENERGY WITH NEW SINGLE “CHASE IT (MMM DA DA DA)” – OUT NOW

4x-GRAMMY NOMINATED SUPERSTAR BEBE REXHA BRINGS THE ENERGY WITH NEW SINGLE

“CHASE IT (MMM DA DA DA)” PRODUCED BY BRITISH DJ CHRIS LAKE

LISTEN HERE 

May 17, 2024 (Los Angeles, CA) — Today, multi-platinum hitmaker and 4x-GRAMMY nominated global superstar Bebe Rexha shares her new single “Chase It (Mmm Da Da Da)” via Warner Records. Listen to the high-energy pop-dance anthem — which was produced by Chris Lake, Sammy Virji, Punctual, and Marco Straus 

Rexha first teased the song last month at Coachella, taking the mainstage by storm for her Sunday evening sunset slot, with Rolling Stone calling Rexha a “force to be reckoned with.” See a clip of her incredible performance HERE.

The Los Angeles Times also praised Rexha’s Coachella performance, declaring, “In the war eternal to be the Main Pop Girl, we have a new champion today in Rexha, a songwriting industry lifer who has always been this close to a breakthrough as an artist. After her decadently performed, expertly delivered Main Stage set, it’s safe to say the day has arrived.” Billboard added, “…her evening mainstage show proved that she deserved to be there as much as anyone else, with Rexha — who wore a tight black bodysuit and boots — sounding and looking like every bit the big stage pop star.”

“Chase It (Mmm Da Da Da)” comes after the release of Bebe’s majorly successful third studio album, Bebe, last year. The album was stacked with hits including the smash “I’m Good (Blue)” with David Guetta, which became Bebe’s fourth hit to crack Billboard’s top 10, was #1 at Dance radio for a record-breaking 53 weeks, earned her a GRAMMY nomination, and has amassed a staggering 2 billion streams globally. Rexha and Guetta teamed up once again with their massive follow-up track last summer, “One In A Million,” which earned them a GRAMMY nomination at this year’s awards in the new category of Best Pop Dance Recording.

Previously, Bebe made singles chart history with the phenomenal “Meant To Be” (featuring Florida Georgia Line). Certified RIAA 4x-platinum, the ubiquitous song spent 50 consecutive weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart, the longest reign ever by a female lead artist.  Also going #1 at Adult Top 40, “Meant To Be” hit #2 on the Hot 100 and Mainstream Top 40, #3 at AC, Top 10 at Dance/Mix Show Airplay, and Top 30 at Rhythmic, one of history’s rarest multi-format crossover hits. The song has over 4 billion streams, with a radio audience over 3 billion, and the video (directed by Sophie Muller) has over 1 billion views.

“Chase It (Mmm Da Da Da)” gives fans a taste of what’s to come from Bebe as she ushers in a new era full of high energy dance-floor-ready bangers this summer.

OMAR APOLLO ANNOUNCES SOPHOMORE ALBUM GOD SAID NO DUE JUNE 28TH VIA WARNER RECORDS

OMAR APOLLO ANNOUNCES SOPHOMORE ALBUM GOD SAID NO DUE JUNE 28TH VIA WARNER RECORDS

SHARES NEW SINGLE AND MUSIC VIDEO “DISPOSE OF ME”

LISTEN HERE

“one of the most exciting young musicians on the planet”
COMPLEX

“the pop of tomorrow.”
Rolling Stone

“‘Ivory’ goes beyond thinking outside the box: It’s as if the box were never even there to begin with.”
Pitchfork

“Apollo cannot be kept in a box”
Variety

Omar Apollo announces that his sophomore studio album, God Said No, will be released on June 28th via Warner Records. Along with the announcement, Apollo offers a preview of what is to come on the album with the new single “Dispose of Me,” which arrives with an accompanying live performance video of the song featuring a 14-piece ensemble. Apollo and the band put a new spin on “Dispose Of Me” as they’re surrounded by Omar’s closest friends and collaborators. God Said No was executive produced by Teo Halm and features musician Mustafa and actor Pedro Pascal. The album title is Omar’s interpretation of “lo que sera, sera” which translates to “whatever will be, will be” or “it is what it is.” The phrase embodies the album with Omar’s tongue-in-cheek humorous outlook on the suffering that comes from surrendering and accepting whatever is thrown at you by life, a relationship or lover.
Arriving a little over two years after the release of his critically acclaimed debut album Ivory which earned Apollo a Best New Artist nomination at the 2023 Grammys, God Said No was born out of the whirlwind that followed his debut and nonstop touring, on his headline tour, in support of SZA’s SOS arena tour along with Billie Eilish’s Latin American stadium tour. Apollo booked a three month stay in London that fall, where he ruminated on walks down rain-soaked cobblestone streets and mined the poems of Mary Oliver, Victoria Chang, and Ocean Vuong for inspiration. Speaking on musical inspirations with Rolling Stone in the May issue, Omar cited artists like Kate Bush, Labi Siffre, Giorgio Moroder, Beyoncé, and Lana del Rey as being in heavy rotation during that time in London.
Camped out in London’s legendary Abbey Road Studios with his trusted collaborators, producers Halm, Carter Lang, and Blake Slatkin, Apollo built the bones of his melodrama. The 14-track album is a survey of the emotional wreckage that followed the end of a torrid love affair. Apollo borrowed the title from something his friend said while processing the relationship. “I gave it my everything,” Apollo says, “And God said ‘no.’” What began during that London trip resulted in his most soul-bearing and immediate body of work, fine tuned across studios in Los Angeles, NY, and Miami towards the end of 2023.

 

“Dispose of Me” follows the album’s lead single, “Spite,” which was released last month to fanfare alongside an iconic David Heof-directed music video shot in Mexico City. Just last week, Omar made a splash during his Met Gala debut, wearing a custom suit by LOEWE that earned him Best Dressed nods from The Cut, Vogue, and WWD, among others.

 

2022 saw Omar Apollo release his debut album Ivory which was widely celebrated for its ability to blur genre lines and language barriers. This translated to the Grammy nomination in 2023 for Best New Artist and earned Apollo commercial success, including a 7-week run on the Billboard Hot 100 for his first RIAA-certified platinum record, “Evergreen (You Didn’t Deserve Me At All).” Omar also enjoyed critical acclaim, landing on year-end lists from esteemed media outlets such as NPR, The FADER, Billboard, Complex, Esquire, and Rolling Stone, among others. Following the release of his debut album, he performed on NPR’s Tiny Desk, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and unveiled his single “Killing Me” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Additionally, Omar was named the first ambassador for skincare brand Youth to the People and is currently the face of LOEWE’s menswear campaign under the creative direction of Jonathan Anderson, which Apollo previewed on the cover of the latest issue of VMAN.

Megan Thee Stallion Delivers New “BOA” Single Ahead Of Upcoming Arena Tour

Megan Thee Stallion Delivers New “BOA” Single Ahead Of Upcoming Arena Tour

Stream The Houston Native’s New Single HERE

Hot Girl Summer Tour Will Stop down in Dublin on July 14th at Dublin’s 3Arena- limited tickets remain 

May 10, 2024 – Today, three-time, Grammy award-winning superstar, entrepreneur and philanthropist Megan Thee Stallion delivered her brand new single “BOA,” which you can stream HERE via Hot Girl Productions.

The new single showcases Megan’s fiery bars over LilJuMadeDaBeat’s beat that samples Gwen Stefani’s classic “What You Waiting For?” from 2004. “BOA” also includes a memorable hook that has the Houston native rapping “Doing shit for TikTok, bitch I’m really hip hop, they all know my shit hot, ain’t listen when yo shit drop, all my diamonds dancing I ain’t need to make no TikTok.”

“BOA” serves as the latest installment of Megan’s serpent-themed songs, following recent releases such as “HISS” in January 2024 and “Cobra” in Nov. 2023. The former debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and also became the first-ever, solo female rap song to debut No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200.

Megan kickstarted the music-filled week by bringing back #MeganMonday with the surprise release of her “I Think I love Her Freestyle” on her social media. In the freestyle, the Houston native rapped over the instrumental of Gucci Mane’s iconic song.

Most recently, Megan graced the cover of Women’s Health, where she explained her decision to select the snake motif as part of her rebirth and shared her perspective on how snakes are “feared, misunderstood, respected, healing.”

 

The new song comes as Megan prepares to kick off the “Hot Girl Summer” Tour – her first-ever headlining arena tour along with special guest GloRilla. The domestic leg of the tour kicks off on May 14 in Minneapolis and wraps in San Francisco on June 23 before she travels to Europe including a Dublin date at 3Arena

Megan and GloRilla recently showcased their collective knack for collaborations when they teamed up to release “Wanna Be.” The song debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 in April and led to the creation of the viral “Wanna Be” challenge that took over social media.

Last month, Megan was also honored at Planned Parenthood’s annual gala, where she was presented with the Catalyst of Change Award. The multihyphenate also appeared on the cover of AdWeek and spoke about bridging the intersection of music and business at AdWeek’s Social Media Week conference as the keynote speaker.

You can pre-order ‘BRAT’ HERE and pre-save ‘BRAT’ HERE.

In support of ‘BRAT’, Charli will be embarking on her biggest ever headline shows in arenas throughout the UK in November and December. Charli is also teaming up with longtime collaborator Troye Sivan for their highly anticipated co-headline US arena tour ‘Charli XCX & Troye Sivan Present: Sweat’, including a newly announced second show at The Kia Forum in Los Angeles. Tickets can be found HERE.

Charli threw a momentous Boiler Room in New York’s Brooklyn in February to launch the ‘BRAT’ campaign with A. G. CookGeorge DanielFinn Keane and Doss. The show broke the record for the most ever RSVPs to a Boiler Room event, with over 40k people registering to attend. Featuring special guest appearances from the likes of Addison Rae and Julia Fox, the show has easily become one of the viral moments of the year. You can watch the full stream of ‘Boiler Room & Charli XCX Presents: PARTYGIRL’ HERE.

Alongside her new album, Charli has been working on multiple film & TV projects following the breakout success of her Barbie soundtrack contribution ‘Speed Drive’ last year. She is co-executive producing the score for the A24 film ‘Mother Mary’ with Jack Antonoff and also producing original music for Benito Skinner’s series ‘Overcompensating’ on Prime Video. In addition, Charli will star in the Daniel Goldhaber remake of 1978 cult horror film ‘Faces of Death’.

Avant-pop and electronic superstar Charli XCX has become an iconic figure in the arts, having helped expand the landscape of popular music over the last decade by seamlessly traversing the underground and mainstream with her artistic output. Over the course of a trailblazing career, the multi-hyphenate creative has earned critical acclaim for her innovative style and entrepreneurial spirit and seen her forward-thinking approach reshape pop culture in the process.

Her lasting impact was cemented last year when Charli was honoured with the Visionary Award at the annual Ivor Novellos in London, while she also received the Powerhouse Award at Billboard’s Women In Music ceremony in March and the ASCAP Global Impact Award earlier this week.

DUA LIPA RELEASES HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW ALBUM RADICAL OPTIMISM – OUT NOW

DUA LIPA RELEASES HIGHLY ANTICIPATED

NEW ALBUM RADICAL OPTIMISM

STREAM / BUY HERE

DUA SET FOR DOUBLE DUTY AS HOST AND MUSICAL GUEST ON MAY 4TH EPISODE OF SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE

Radical Optimism Album Artwork

3x GRAMMY and 7x BRIT Award-winning global pop powerhouse Dua Lipa has released her highly anticipated third album, Radical Optimism. The album features 11 songs including the thumping, rave-up “Illusion,” “Training Season,” and euphoric club-ready “Houdini.” You can listen to Radical Optimism here.

“I wrote this album during my singledom,” Dua says. “I always came into the studio with some funny story, and they all inspired different songs. There’s a looseness and an honesty that I hadn’t had before.”

In making the album, Dua worked with a team of core collaborators including Caroline Ailin, Danny L. Harle, Tobias Jesso Jr. and Kevin Parker.

Dua adds, “Everybody’s backgrounds and ways of working all gelled so well, as friends and musically.” She continues, “We were just so open with each other, and I felt like in that room, I could be vulnerable and talk freely about my experiences. The musicality of it felt so rich and exciting, and I wanted to dive in and be a part of that.”

Dua describes Radical Optimism as “psychedelic pop” noting that “there are musical breaks and a mix of different sounds, and when you listen to it with your eyes closed, it opens up a very visual world.” The album was inspired by Dua’s own self-discovery and speaks to the pure joy and happiness of having clarity in situations that once seemed impossible to face.

Rolling Stone has called the album “pop bliss,” while highlighting it is “uniquely and utterly Dua Lipa: confident dance pop full of witty Instagram-caption-ready one-liners.”

This Saturday, May 4th, Dua will returned to Saturday Night Live where she did double duty as both host and musical guest for the night. Dua was last on SNL in 2020 when she performed “Don’t Start Now,” “Levitating” and made her sketch debut as Marjorie.

Dua recently announced the first run of tour dates in support of Radical Optimism with shows in Berlin, Pula, and Nimes taking place in June, which sold out immediately. In addition, Dua will make her Pyramid Stage debut as the Friday night headliner at this year’s Glastonbury Festival on June 28th and will play a show at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall on October 17th, the latter of which also sold out immediately.

Ed Sheeran has announced details of a special anniversary edition of his seminal album ‘x’, set for release on 21 June – 10 years to the date of its original release. The record will be available on multiple formats including an EcoRecord; a new, more ecologically sustainable LP format (pre-order formats here). To celebrate the milestone, Sheeran has announced a one-off show at New York’s Barclays Center that’ll take place on 22 May, with the setlist reflecting his ‘x (Wembley Edition)’ release from 2015. To help get tickets into the hands of fans, Ed Sheeran is partnering with Seated for the exclusive fan on-sale (register here to be in with a chance of being selected for the opportunity to purchase tickets.)

The exclusive, general on-sale, powered by Seated, will begin for the selected fans on Monday, May 6th at 10am ET via Ticketmaster.

‘x’ – Sheeran’s second album, released in 2014 – was the catalyst behind his global ascent. An LP that has now exceeded 22 million global sales, it generated the smash hits “Don’t”, “Sing”, “Photograph”, “Bloodstream”, and “Thinking Out Loud”. Outside of the original tracklisting, nine bonus tracks will feature on the individual formats of the anniversary editions, all of which have never been released on vinyl – these include “I See Fire” and “All of the Stars” taken from movie blockbusters, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Fault In Our Stars respectively.

 

Ed Sheeran is an era-defining artist, who has sold over 180 million records across the globe. Most recently, he took his record-breaking Mathematics Tour to South East Asia, UEA and India, where he invited local artists to perform with him each night, and even learned Mandarin and Punjabi for special collaborations at two of the shows.

LEIGH-ANNE SHARES NEW TRACK ‘FORBIDDEN FRUIT’ – OUT NOW

LEIGH-ANNE SHARES NEW TRACK

‘FORBIDDEN FRUIT’

OUT NOW

Today, Leigh-Anne shares a brand-new track ‘Forbidden Fruit’, the second lifted from an upcoming collection of songs, out now via Warner Records.

Listen to ‘Forbidden Fruit’ here: https://WMI.lnk.to/ForbiddenFruit

Leigh-Anne surrenders to the throes of lust and temptation on this sultry new track. With lyrics dripping with passion and a mesmerising reggae-infused beat, ‘Forbidden Fruit’ continues to perfectly showcase Leigh-Anne’s artistry and sonic direction as an artist. Produced by Albert Hype, and written by Leigh-Anne alongside J Kash and Nija, the track is the second to be lifted from an upcoming collection of songs. The track also arrives with a stunning dance visualiser ‘Forbidden Fruit (Chapter II)’, directed by Nathan James Tettey.

Talking about the track, Leigh-Anne explains: “I wrote ‘Forbidden Fruit’ at a writing camp in Miami, and it’s actually about how André and I met. This one gives me sweaty, sultry, reggae dance vibes. The way the beat drops makes me so excited to bring this one to the stage.”

‘Forbidden Fruit’ follows the heartfelt R&B cut ‘Stealin Love’, and part of an upcoming collection of songs Leigh-Anne created whilst working on her debut album. Speaking about this collection, Leigh-Anne said: “I’ve been writing & recording so much working on my album but while making it, I’ve made a collection of songs that fit together in their own world.” Next month Leigh-Anne plays an intimate headline show which sold out in seconds. This debut solo show will be one of the first chances for fans to hear Leigh-Anne’s new music live.

Last year Leigh-Anne released the garage-infused ‘Don’t Say Love’ and the Ayra Starr assisted ‘My Love’ as she continues to cement her rebirth as a solo artist.

As a solo artist, Leigh-Anne has quickly amassed over 60M global streams, earnt two UK top 40 singles and graced the cover of countless publications including Rolling Stone UK, Glamour and Tush. Experimenting with new sounds, ‘Don’t Say Love’ and ‘My Love’ have so far seen Leigh-Anne embrace genres such as Garage and Afrobeats. ‘Stealin Love’ showed a more raw and honest side of Leigh-Anne as she explored the darker sides to love, while ‘Forbidden Fruit’ is a passionate and sultry banger which sees Leigh-Anne surrendering to temptation. ‘Stealin Love’ and ‘Forbidden Fruit’ are the first taste of an upcoming collection of songs that perfectly showcases Leigh-Anne’s artistry and sonic direction as an artist.
