The trailer for a new romantic comedy film about three young musicians has recently been dropped, the film is titled Tell Me I Love You and will be available on DVD and VOD from 2 June 2020. The trailer was dropped on 19 May 2020 and sure makes us excited to see the film when it is released.

The film follows a trio – Ally, Ben, and Melanie – who are making music together and have been friends since college. There’s history between Ally and Ben, whereas Melanie is bisexual and is not ready to settle down with anyone. They’ve been shopping around their song to a few record labels, and one has replied asking for a five-track demo, but they can’t afford the studio time to record it.

Melanie starts to date her new yoga instructor, Cassie, before she finds out that she will inherit a trust fund after she has married a man. At the time, Ally is visiting her family, where her high school sweetheart – who she hasn’t seen in years – proposes out of nowhere, and her family encourages her to get hitched, so she panics and says she’s already engaged. Ben hatches a plan and decides to marry Ally to help her out and to also marry Melanie so they can get the trust fund to record the demo, but life is complicated and complex, how are they going to keep this all a secret, deal with their families, and where does Cassie fit into all this?

Watch The Trailer To “Tell Me I Love You” Here:

The film has been written and directed by Fiona MacKenzie (Bada Bing, Bada Boom, Deadly Little Secrets, Cosa Bella) and stars Kaniehtiio Horn (The Trotsky, Deathwish, The Man In The High Castle, Letterkenny) as Melanie, Paulina Cerrilla (40 Hours, String Theory) as Ally, and Sam Clark (Neighbours, Grease: Live) as Ben. As for Cassie, she is played by Matthew Morrison’s wife, Renee Morrison (High School Lover). Other cast stars include Jamie Luner (Just The Ten Of Us, Melrose Place, All My Children, Savannah), Al Sapienza (The Sopranos, Jack Ryan, Person Of Interest) and former O-Town band member Ashley Parker Angel (Hairspray, Wicked), amongst many other stars.

This new film will be released on DVD and VOD on 2 June 2020, distributed by Vision Films, and this trailer sure excites us for the release. This is going to be one rom-com we don’t want to miss.

With an online empire of four million Instagram followers and 12 million TikTok fans, calling payton a breakthrough star seems almost absurd.

Yet, as the 16-year-old takes his first steps as an artist in his own right, he is a rising star in the industry, and a very exciting one. Whipping up an online frenzy when dropping debut single ‘Love Letter‘ last month, pulling in over 1.5 million Spotify streams in a week and breaking into viral charts, Payton Moormeier is a youngster pressing all the right buttons.

“It feels amazing [to have ‘Love Letter’ out]. It was a dream working on the song, it was such a fun time. It’s so special to me so to get it out and see it perform the way it has is surreal.”

“I was kind of nervous, you never know how people are going to react. My homies and family were all vibing with it but I was waiting to see the feedback from fans and was a little nervous.”

An easy-going flick reminiscent of Machine Gun Kelly and Bazzi, the confident first effort puts the singer’s heart-on-sleeve lyrics at the forefront. Written off the back of a sudden end to a relationship, Payton admits that writing from experience comes as second nature:

“It always stems from a situation and from there it’s just making the story and shaping the song.”

“The hook starts with ‘I don’t even know myself’ – the whole relationship was a dream to me and when it ended it was so abrupt. I’d invested myself in somebody for so long that I didn’t even know what I really like and who I am – that’s the short story behind it.”

Already preparing his next release, ‘Habits’, Moormeier has excited fans with snippets online and tells CelebMix they should expect the unexpected.

“The first verse stems around myself and problems I have, how I deal with them. The second verse is little story about a girl and what she left me with,” he teases.

“It’s really different from ‘Love Letter’ and that was the goal. It stems from a demo that I made in my room. The vibe of the song is a little like Post Malone maybe – it’s definitely different and new for me.”

Name checking Malone as a dream future collaboration, the ‘rockstar’ singer is alongside artists such as blackbear who inspire Payton when recording.

“It’s not all the time but some parts of the song that I’ll be singing remind me of someone. If it’s Post Malone, then I’ll try and get that fit in my voice and kill that part.”

“I’d love to see Post Malone on a payton track. I’m a huge fan and love his whole style and vibe.”

Lofty ambitions that are, perhaps, not all that far-fetched as the singer already moves in circles with cemented artists such as Jacob Sartorius and HRVY.

A post shared by Payton Moormeier x( (@paytonmoormeier) on

For now, the singer focuses on the two singles, although is still spending plenty of hours recording with eyes set on a potential future EP. The more time he spends crafting his sound, the clearer his vision is, the songwriter admits.

“At first it [being in the studio] was super difficult but working with producers and making tracks has been the best thing for me. It’s helped me with everything from writing to getting my emotions out and my overall confidence.”

And even though working alongside producers and releasing original material may be new water for the social media sensation, music is not something that has taken his fancy in recent months. Playing guitar since a young age and posting viral covers online before even reaching his teenage years, Payton’s big break into the industry has been cooking for a while.

“Music is just something I picked up because I wanted to,” he reflects on his childhood years when he’d teach himself guitar through online tutorials. “Looking back at it now I’m impressed with myself how much I was grinding on guitar,” he chuckles. “I had the drive to learn and it was addicting.”

As those hours of commitment start to come to fruition, it’s clear that there is a whole lot more to Payton Moormeier than just another social media star. The singer/songwriter is fast curating his own sound and with a fanbase that big, the sky is the limit.

Of RoadTrip fame, Jack Duff kicks off his new project with debut single ‘Bad For Me’.

“I always knew that you were bad for me, but I fell for you so f**king easily,” the 20-year-old delivers on the track. A snarling break-up flick produced by Ben Stancombe, the single marks a bold new sound for Duff.

For fans of Post Malone and Travis Scott, the bubbling dark pop of ‘Bad For Me’ is an exciting taste of the singer’s future as a solo artist. Sending fans online into a frenzy on release, the track hit the trending spots on Twitter moments after hitting streaming services. Landing with a behind-the-scenes lyric video of life in the studio, the track has pulled in 60,000 streams within 24 hours on multiple platforms.

Leaving RoadTrip in late 2019 after three years with the band, Duff returned at the group’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush show to perform an opening set, covering the likes of Justin Bieber and Lauv. Also announced as a support act for HRVY on his string of shows this Easter, those dates are being rescheduled given the global situation.

First appearing on screens all the way back in 2013 as a competitor on Britain’s Got Talent, it was alongside RoadTrip that the singer rose to notoriety, now the singer has a fanbase of over 185,000 followers on Instagram alone.

Claire Richards has a phenomenal voice, she makes great cakes ( we know this for a fact) and she’s been helping keep her fans spirits up during lockdown by doing “Claireoke”.

Claireoke is quite simple, it’s Claire belting out some of her personal favourite songs. She’s been uploading the videos to her social channels.

This week in the UK it’s Mental Health Awareness Week, the theme is kindness, Claire’s videos have been helping boost her fans spirits when they’ve been struggling during the lockdown.

Recently Claire posted an extremely candid and honest post, where she was extremely open with her fans. She told them how she very nearly didn’t do a Claireoke that week as she’d been struggling with the reality of lockdown and felt like she had hit a brick wall.

I’ve got to be honest with you all – I was almost going to skip recording #Claireaoke for you guys today. Like so many of you, I’ve hit a bit of a brick wall because of lockdown and found the last few days incredibly tough.

Claire Richards

She went on to then say she had watched a video that Claire Richards Central had done in collaboration with many of her fans, where they thanked her for Claireoke and generally just sent her lovely supportive messages. In the video, her fans thanked her for bringing smiles to people’s faces during the lockdown.

It was watching the video they so kindly did that helped her find the confidence and inspired her to do the video that week. What we think is lovely is Claire started her videos as a way to give people a boost, and when she needed one her fans were there to lend a helping hand and show her just how much she is loved and thankful they were for her videos.

Here at CelebMix, we love new music as much as you do, so we are delighted to be able to share with you the exclusive premiere of ‘That’s Love For You’, the brand new single from singer-songwriter Jill Marie Cooper.

‘That’s Love For You” is taken from Jill’s upcoming E.P and is set to be released this Friday, as a follow up to her stunning debut single ‘Lady Nice’.

Written over eight years ago, ‘That’s Love For You’ is a powerful ballad that will take you on a journey of searching for true love, a love Jill ultimately found in God.

The lyrics are beautiful and describe perfectly the unconditional love, strength, and forgiveness that Jill has found in her faith and how this has empowered her. ‘I know that you love every part, the bruises and scars’ is a particularly powerful line in the song as struggling to love every part of ourselves is something we can all relate to in some way.

You can listen to “That’s Love For You” below:

Just like ‘Lady Nice’ this song is empowering and Jill’s exceptional vocals make it truly special. Amid the global pandemic we are all facing right now, ‘That’s Love For You’ is so fitting as it spreads a positive message of love and peace, which is exactly what we all need to hear right now!

The “Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga” Netflix film is literally on its way, and we’re more excited than ever, especially since the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 was cancelled earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic – could this film fill the hole that the cancellation of the show caused? In promotion of the film, which is set to be released in June on Netflix, the first official single was dropped on Friday, titled “Volcano Man”, which sees Will Ferrell collaborate with My Marianne (who is actually Molly Sandén, who represented Sweden at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2006 and competed on Melodifestivalen in 2009, 2012, and 2016), and later released a short music video which sees Rachel McAdams lip-syncing to My Marianne’s vocals.

The new single that was dropped last Friday has been written and produced by Christian Persson and Gustaf Holter, according to Spotify. The track is very Eurovision-themed, and we wouldn’t be surprised to have seen it sail through the Semi-Finals of Eurovision and get quite a few points in the Grand Final. We don’t think it would’ve won, but stranger things have happened.

My Marianne (who Eurovision fans will know as Molly Sandén, especially in Sweden) sings the majority of the song with her absolutely brilliant voice – how has she not won Melodifestivalen yet, and represented Sweden at Eurovision? Hopefully it will happen soon. The chorus sees Will Ferrell jump in, with the two singers alternating, creating a brilliant ’00s-inspired cheesy club track that we can’t help but love. It so reminds us of the Swedish eurodance musician, E-Type. What’s more surprising is that the lyrical content is super creative, telling the story of a man who is found at the top of a mountain peak who guards the land below.

Stream “Volcano Man” By Will Ferrell & My Marianne Here:

The accompanying music video relates well with the song. Rachel McAdams (who plays Sigrit Ericksdottir in the Eurovision film) lip-syncs to My Marianne’s (Molly Sandén’s) vocals giving off a Eurovision-esque performance, whilst Will Ferrell (who plays Lars Erickssong in the film) shows off his passion for the track. In the aspects of the film, these two are chosen as a duo to compete at Eurovision for Iceland, and they seem to have it down to a tee, and this video alone makes us excited for the film release next month.

The duo are dressed up in winter clothes and are playing keyboards on black rock formations near the ocean. Scenes later see them running by a waterfall and making snow angels in the snow. An additional scene sees an explosion of lava behind Will Ferrell, probably from a volcano. There are no doubts in our minds that they enjoyed being on the set of this video and they had fun with it – we’re pretty sure that this will also be the case for the film.

Watch The Music Video Starring Will Ferrell And Rachel McAdams Here:

“Volcano Man” is available to download and stream right now, via Netflix Studios under exclusive license to Arista Records, a division of Sony Music Entertainment. The “Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga” film is expected to be released on 26 June 2020. Alongside Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams, the film will also star Demi Lovato, Pierce Brosnan, Dan Stevens, Jamie Demetriou, Natasia Demetriou, and many more. Eurovision stars from the past few years are also rumoured to appear.

Jesse McCartney is certainly making us emotional with his latest releases. McCartney released his new single, “Friends,” on Wednesday, May 20th, accompanied by a vibrant lyric video.

“Friends” is a very relatable and relevant song for right now. Written by McCartney, Scott Effman, and Riley Biederer, the track is a tribute to those friends who become family, who also pick up right where you left off when you get back together.

It is a great song for the Summertime and graduations. The song really makes you think about those special people in your life and how important friends are. A music video is also set to be released in the coming weeks.

About the song, he said, “I think ‘Friends’ comes at a time when we all realize what’s most important. With the future looking uncertain, it’s nice to have friends to lean on for moral support. I know I speak for everyone when I say we’re all looking forward to getting back to our routines and seeing our loved ones face to face again!”

McCartney actually first hinted at the song on his Instagram. We all thought he was like us and just missed his friends, but he was actually posting lyrics to the song.

He first announced the song with an Instagram live, where he asked fans trivia questions which involved them scrambling to find out what the title would be.

This release comes about one month after McCartney released “Yours,” which is basically his life in a pop song. “Yours” is supposedly the lead single off his upcoming record. Whether that is an EP or album, he is not sure, but something is definitely coming.

McCartney has been participating in the online performances such as the Stay At Home Ball, Home is Where The Heart Is, and more.

You may think it’s odd that he released a song on a Wednesday, but it perfectly coincides with the final of “The Masked Singer.” According to viewers and fans of the show, McCartney is supposedly the Turtle, who is in the finale tonight. All will be revealed!

We can’t wait to hear what he releases next!

If you’re at home with the family and bored, deciding what new movie to watch, SCOOB! is a great and fun watch. It’s short and sweet with jokes for the kids and also jokes for the adults that the parents can appreciate.

The new movie is a major crossover between the Scooby Doo series, Dynamite the Wonder Dog, The Crazy Cavecar and Captain Cavemen, with the main focus on Shaggy and Scooby and the gang. While it is not a mind boggler movie, it would be helpful if you knew of the comic characters, but it’s an easy watch.

“SCOOB!” reveals the never-before-told story of Scooby’s origins. It shows how one of history’s most famous friendships began when an adorable, homeless puppy, Scooby (Frank Welker), met a lonesome young boy named Shaggy (Will Forte), and how the two of them joined forces with aspiring young detectives Fred (Zac Efron), Velma (Gina Rodruiguez) and Daphne (Amanda Seyfried) to become the celebrated Mystery Inc. Now, with hundreds of cases solved and adventures shared, Scooby and the gang face the biggest and most challenging mystery of their careers: a plot that will unleash the legendary ghost dog Cerberus upon the world. As they race to stop this “dogpocalypse,” they discover that Scooby has a secret legacy and an epic destiny greater than anyone imagined.

Overall the movie is a perfect watch for the family while in quarantine, thankfully they released the movie for an at home release so families can enjoy from the comfort of their own home! Though the movie did have a lot of crossovers between different comics, the movie ran smoothly and was an adventurous filmed movie.

“SCOOB!” is available for a 48-hour rental via Premium Video On Demand for $ 19.99, or premium digital ownership for $ 24.99, make sure you watch the movie from your couch, bed or desk chair now!

At the end of 2018, Antonia hit it big in her home country of Romania with the Spanish-language song “Matame” featuring Erik Frank, so it’s not a surprise to see her release another Spanish track, this time titled “Como ¡Ay!” which roughly translates to “Like, Ouch!” in English. The song follows up her previous single release “Muti”.

Antonia, full name Antonia Iacobescu, is a Romanian singer who hit internationally on Tom Boxer’s single “Morena”, she later followed that up with a number one single in her home country, titled “Marabou”. She’s been building up her career in her country by releasing amazing singles and collaborating with the likes of INNA, Alexandra Stan, Pitbull, Connect-R, and Achi. She also collaborated with Alex Velea, her partner, on her own single – where he was an uncredited vocalist – “Iubirea mea” and on his single “Sahara“. She continues to release brilliant singles and hit it big with the release of “Matame“, at the end of 2018, which featured Erik Frank. We’re waiting for the day she releases her second studio album, as it’s been five years since she dropped her debut album.

According to Spotify, this song has been written by Alexandru Cotoi, Andrei Mateos, and Luisa Luca, whilst Alexandru Cotoi produced the track. The tongue-in-cheek music video was directed by Bogdan Paun of NGM Creative, with Alexandru Muresan acting as the director of photography. The concept for the visual came from Andra Marta & Chris Poszet, and Loops Production handled the production of the video. Alina Ceusan stars alongside Antonia, as her love interest, in this music video.

Watch Antonia’s Music Video For “Como ¡Ay!” Here:

This full Spanish track suits Antonia down to a tee, her voice sounds so beautiful during the verses, so much so that she blows us away. The backing track is rhythmically catchy and we can so see a few remixes appearing for this track. The chorus is pretty repetitive but enough that you’ll be singing along and getting it stuck in your head. Our rough translation of the lyrics suggests the song is about sex and being with someone throughout the night – turned into the English language, it’s not all that creative, but the Spanish words coalesce aestetically.

The real stand out is the music video, though. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen girl-on-girl action from Antonia, as we saw her do just that in the music video for the song that went international, Tom Boxer’s “Morena”, which she featured on; we presume this is a homage to that visual. It is played up a lot more, for a comedic effect. The video opens with video titles, one of which announces that this is a “Diary” before launching into “Chapter 1: Golf”, in which we see Antonia and Alina Ceusan in golfing outfits, hitting the golf course; they’re instantly connecting, first by swinging together, then Antonia aims the ball between Alina Ceusan’s legs, next Alina Ceusan runs over a male golfer in the background, and then Antonia tees the ball off the guy’s head. “Chapter 2: Bathroom” sees the girls in two separate cubicles, and there’s a hole (possibly a glory hole) in the side of the wall they share, to which Antonia paints Alina Ceusan’s toenails; on the walls are song lyrics and other words and phrases.

“Chapter 3: Balloons” sees Antonia is a room full of orange rocket balloons, her make-up is on-point, showing off a freckled-look. We watch as she is surprised at how big the balloon gets – totally metaphorical here. Then the final chapter arrives, “Chapter 4: Kitchen”, where both women get sexual, whilst they boil eggs, using various objects they can find including a cheese grater, and they start caressing each other with flour and leaving hand-prints all over each other. At the end of the video, we are told that “No men were harmed in the making of this video.” – which is always good to know. It’s clear they had fun in this video, and it’s great to see this comedic video from this team. We’ll never forget this visual, and we’re pretty sure you won’t either.

“Como ¡Ay!” is available to download and stream right now, via Global Records. We really need a new Antonia album, it really has been too long!

Ruby Rose, the star of the CW’s Batwoman, has announced she will be exiting the series after only one season. The actress made her first appearance as the iconic character in the Arrowverse’s “Elseworlds” crossover in May 2018 and two months later, the CW announced a spinoff series was in development. Batwoman premiered in October 2019 and was met with a positive fan response, becoming the network’s third most-watched show. Now, two years after first donning the cape, Ruby Rose revealed she is leaving the show.

“I have made the very difficult decision to not return to Batwoman next season,” Rose said in a statement on May 19. “This was not a decision I made lightly as I have the utmost respect for the cast, crew, and everyone involved with the show in both Vancouver and in Los Angeles. I am beyond appreciative to Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Caroline Dries for not only giving me this incredible opportunity but for welcoming me into the DC universe they have so beautifully created. Thank you, Peter Roth and Mark Pedowitz, and the teams at Warner Bros. and The CW who put so much into the show and always believed in me. Thank you to everyone who made season one a success – I am truly grateful.”

Rose’s exit comes as a huge surprise to fans since the show was just renewed for a second season in January and its season finale aired on Sunday, May 17. Season one was supposed to have 22 episodes, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, it ended at episode 20. Despite Rose’s departure, season two is still expected to premiere in 2021, but with a new leading lady.

In a joint statement, Warner Bros. TV, the CW, and Berlanti Productions thanked Rose for her contributions and reassured fans the show will continue. “The studio and network are firmly committed to Batwoman’s second season and long-term future, and we — along with the show’s talented creative team — look forward to sharing its new direction, including the casting of a new lead actress and member of the LGBTQ community, in the coming months,” they said.

Batwoman is the first gay lead character of a live-action superhero series. Although Rose is leaving the show, her impact won’t be forgotten by fans.

Learning how to play the piano is usually something we learn how to do at an early age and while for some it may become a career, others make it into other fields so hearing that they can play the piano is quite a surprise. You know Alicia Keys and Elton John can play the piano, but do you know about all of these celebrities?

Alicia Keys

Since we mentioned Alicia Keys, let’s start with her. She was encouraged at an early age by her mother to follow dance and music lessons so we can take her for helping Alicia starting her career in the field she became known in. Alicia started to play the piano at 7 years old which could have been late for some to really excel.

Fortunately, Alicia is a true talent and at just 12 years old she started attending the Professional Performing Arts School from which she graduated at only 16 years old, thanks to her great talent. Alicia has often seen performing at a piano in her music videos or live performances in which she showcased her amazing ability.

Her most iconic moment with this instrument came via courtesy of the Grammy Awards of 2019 where she performed at two pianos at once! We don’t know if they were models from well-known brands like Williams Legato or not because she makes every note she touches sound like she’s sent from Heaven – and with such a talent she just might be.

Jamie Foxx

Seriously, is there anything that Jamie Foxx can’t do? He always looks good, is an Academy Award-winning actor, a Grammy Award-winning singer, a legend in the comedy world, a songwriter and a producer. His 2005 album “Unpredictable” reached no.1 on the “Billboard” 200 but you probably know him best for his role in the biopic “Ray”.

In 2004 Jamie Foxx became the third actor and first African-American performer to receive two Academy Award nominations for different roles in the same year: “Ray” and “Collateral”. He won the Oscar for playing a piano-playing legend, Ray Charles. It shouldn’t be any surprise then to hear that Jamie took his first piano lesson at 3 years old.

When he was 13 Jamie was already making money out of his talent (around 300 dollars/event) with his piano and at only 15 he became the music director and choir leader at his church. He also got a piano scholarship to study at the United States International University in San Diego, California (he is originally from Terrell, Texas).

As a result of his devotion to the piano, Jamie was able to play the piano himself in all of the scenes in “Ray”. This makes his Academy Award even more worthy as you can tell he simply disappeared in the character he was portraying. Unfortunately, Ray Charles died just months before the film was ready to be seen.

Orson Welles

One of the biggest names to come out of Classic Hollywood, Orson Wells became a true pioneer not only in films, but also in radio, while also being an actor (in theaters and movies). If you don’t know exactly who Orson Wells is, he’s the person who made “Citizen Kane”, the movie still named by some as being the best of all time.

But, despite his clear talent for movie-making and even acting, Orson’s first love was actually music. His mother studied with the legendary Leopold Godowsky who was nicknamed the “Buddha of the Piano”. With such an immense influence in his home, it’s no surprise that Orson also took up music lessons.

He first started violin lessons and then started playing the piano – both at an early age as it is recommended. Unfortunately, when he was just 9 years old, Orson’s mother passed away which made him associate the piano with her. He never played the instrument ever again but we are sure he would have been just as great at it as he was at creating film masterpieces.

From these three names, who inspires you more to follow up with piano lessons? Is there any name we left out that has a bigger influence on you? Who are the next Nina Simone and Elton John? Let us know on Twitter!

TikTok star and up-and-coming pop artist, Emily Vu, is back with a brand new single titled “WEEKEND.” This track follows the release of Vu’s single “Make Up Your Mind” which she shared with her supporters back in March. The level of success continues to increase with each piece of content. With millions of followers across social media and streaming platforms, Emily Vu has already established a powerful fanbase around the world. Her bubbly and outgoing personality has caused her to shine on a plethora of online platforms and connect with listeners and supporters globally. In an exclusive interview with CelebMix, Emily Vu opens up about “WEEKEND,” fans and more.

What can you tell us about your brand new single “WEEKEND” and the inspiration behind it?

My producer friend SZNS and I were in a session and going through YouTube beats for inspiration and we came across a really pretty guitar beat and decided to recreate it. At the time, I was going through a little heartbreak myself…so writing the lyrics was fairly easy.

How does the vibe of this track differ or relate to your recent single “Make Up Your Mind” sonically and lyrically? 

The whole vibe of “WEEKEND” is definitely different from “Make Up Your Mind,” in my opinion. I think the production on “WEEKEND” makes you feel something that really sticks with you. Lyrically, this single gets me in my feels.

If you could feature another artist on “WEEKEND,” who would it be and why? 

If I were to feature another artist on “WEEKEND” I’d want it to be blackbear. I’ve been such a long-time fan of his. I think this could be a track he’d really enjoy being a part of.

You have an impressive following across streaming and social media platforms! What do you love most about having that support system? 

I love that I’ve been able to be real with my supporters and listeners and I’ve made it where my lives and DMs in general are a safe place for them.

What advice would you give to someone who looks up to you and aspires to have a career similar to yours? 

I’d say to not be scared to put yourself out there for the world. If it’s something you’re really passionate about, you should chase it.

Are there any artists or bands that you have been listening to lately during the global pandemic? 

I’ve been listening to Lauv’s newest album repeatedly and also a lot of LANY!

What else can fans look forward to in the near or distant future?

I’m currently working on putting together an EP. After that release, I’d definitely want to do live shows.

Listen to “WEEKEND” here.

Lauv just released his music video for “El Tejano” featuring Sofía Reyes, a track off his 21-track debut album ~how i’m feeling~!

Dorian Electra pens a clanking love letter on ‘Sorry Bro (I Love You)’ https://celebmix.com/dorian-electra-pens-a-clanking-love-letter-on-sorry-bro-i-love-you/ Tue, 19 May 2020 19:12:28 +0000 https://celebmix.com/?p=239162 This content is copyright of CelebMix.com.

Marking the first step away from their epic ‘Flamboyant’ era, Dorian Electra is back with ‘Sorry Bro (I Love You)’.

“Sorry bro I’m thinking of you, I don’t wanna bug you, but sorry bro I love you”, the pop disruptor opens on the flick which hit streaming platforms at midnight on May 19th. Delivered with Electra’s trademark tongue-in-cheek lyricism and bubbling hyper pop production, ‘Sorry Bro (I Love You)’ sees the 27-year-old at their best.

An artist whose pushing of sonic boundaries is always met with concept-ready visuals, Electra releases the single with a classicly kitsch music video. Directed by Weston Allen, the front-garden iron-pumping affair sees Electra and ‘bros’ in full force.

Dorian Electra spent part of January at a writing camp alongside friends and curators, during which they penned fan-written track ‘Thirsty (For Love)’ on Instagram Live, amongst other new material. Mood Killer, of Liquify success, joins Electra as a co-writer on ‘Sorry Bro (I Love You)’ with production provided by Dylan Brady of 100 gecs and Charli XCX notoriety, as well as frequent collaborator Count Baldor.

Releasing their long-awaited debut album, Flamboyant, to critical acclaim last year, Dorian Electra went on to tour the world on the back of the record’s success. CelebMix caught the star’s sold-out Village Underground show last year. Further dates across the U.K. and U.S.A. as a final hurrah for Flamboyant had been planned too, although are now postponed given the global situation.

‘Sorry Bro (I Love You)’ is streaming now.

After releasing on Friday, May 15, the Jonas Brothers’ new single “X” became a popular hit over the weekend, reaching the top 5 position on the U.S. iTunes sales chart. The song features Latin Grammy award-winning artist Karol G, who launched her career on the Columbian version of The X-Factor.

Now, the brothers and Karol G have released the music video for the song. The video was clearly filmed during this quarantine because the artists are all on iPhones rocking out in their own homes. On Twitter, they explained video was filmed with their directors over Zoom. They made the best of the situation though and still gave fans a great video.

They all stuck to a red, yellow, and black theme to go along with the cover art of the single. We are living for Nick’s red suit and dance moves. You can also see the brothers “sharing” a bottle of Nick’s tequila, Villa One. They are ready to party!

Watch the “X” music video below.

We can’t wait to dance to this song once this lockdown is over. You can tell they had a lot of fun filming the video. We do wonder what the original video would have been like if they weren’t in quarantine.

“X” is predicted to be a contender for the Song of the Summer. The Jonas Brothers even virtually performed it on May 16 on the Graduate Together broadcast. During the show, they congratulated the graduates before they wished them the best.

Next, they will perform the song on the finale of The Voice on May 19. Be sure to tune in at 9/8c on NBC.

We can’t wait to hear what they release next. You can watch the music video on YouTube and continue to stream “X” on all streaming platforms.

Pop/rock 3-piece The UMA have released their brand new music video for latest single, Wake Up.

The video sees the band performing against a vibrant pink backdrop, whilst being force-fed, having cake chucked over them and being drawn over against their will. It encapsulates the lyrics and emphasises the contrast between feeling euphoric highs and then overwhelming lows.

It was shot and directed by Clearway Media.

Last year, The UMA released their first musical offering in the form of tracks Wake Up and Working For It. Both went down a storm live on the band’s debut tour, supporting WSTR around the UK.

Next month would have seen the band perform at the prestigious Great Escape Festival in Brighton, but unfortunately, it has been postponed until next year following the latest government advice around the Coronavirus outbreak.

Brando, a singer-songwriter vastly rising in popularity, is back with new music following the release of countless successful singles. His recent track, “The Bender,” is a collaboration with Matoma which remixes the classic hit “September” by Earth Wind & Fire in a unique and fun way. Brando’s impressive vocals and passion for the music he creates has captured the attention of millions across streaming platforms. It has become apparent to listeners that this is only the beginning of his journey as an artist. In an exclusive interview with CelebMix, the “Body” singer opens up about his latest releases, collaborations and more.

What can you tell us about your recent single, “The Bender,” with Matoma?

“The Bender” is a dance flip on the classic Earth Wind & Fire track “September.” Matoma and I really felt that it was such a perfect song to put our spin on!

How was it to work on that track with him and remake such a classic hit? 

Working with Matoma is always fun. He’s such a laid back guy and incredibly talented. “September” is one of my favorite songs, so it was amazing that we got to remake it. 

You also have a brand new single “Millennial Rhapsody” that just came out! What was the inspiration behind that track and why did you decide to release it now? 

“Millennial Rhapsody” is about that lonely feeling you get when you’re in love with a friend but they don’t feel the same way. It’s basically the thoughts that run through your head when you see them in person. In terms of why it got released now, I’m actually getting ready to release another single in June and so this song was seen as a perfect segue into that one.

Can fans expect to hear that single on a larger project, such as an EP, in the future? 

I’m actually not sure at the moment, but I’d love to get a larger project together!

We have to talk about “Body” and how much that single with Loud Luxury has blown up. Did you ever expect it to connect with millions of people and reach the level of success that it did?

Not at all! It was definitely a surprise to me since it was the first dance song I had ever made. It’s been an amazing experience having so many people love the song and really embed it into their everyday lives. I’ve even seen weddings that have used it as their first dance song which is incredible!

Were you able to hear that single in public and if so, what was your reaction? 

Yeah many times actually, at malls, restaurants…The first time it was kind of like a catch 22, hearing myself over the loud speakers.

Who would you like to work and collaborate with in the future?

I would love to work with Calvin Harris. I think he’s an incredibly talented producer and DJ. I would also love to work with Dua Lipa, The 1975, Khalid … honestly there are so many talented artists it’s hard to just list one.

What else can fans look forward to when it comes to the rest of 2020? 

My next song comes out early June! Then I’ll have even more releases after that… so stay tuned!

Listen to “Millennial Rhapsody” here.

Today after much anticipation, Watermelon Sugar’s official music video launched after countdowns appearing everywhere – take a look below.

The video itself was shot in Malibu during January of this year. You may recognise this very beach, as it’s the exact beach One Direction filmed their debut music video ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ upon back in July 2011. And ‘this video is dedicated to touching’.

During the course of the 3 minutes and 9 seconds, we see a lot of beautiful people surrounding Harry on this Malibu beach, eating watermelons. Harry doesn’t just feed him self the fruit, others feed him too. Essentially we are reminded that vitamin C is great for you, and precisely why Harry Styles has dedicated this video to touching. The 70’s theme run through-out with vivid colours and clothes to match.

We are obsessing over this music video. Transported immediately to a hot summers day. The fun, the frolics and the sand are just what we need! And getting your daily dose of Vitamin C.

For some people, having a child can make it harder to advance in your career or try new things. The opposite is true for Ami Desai, a beauty entrepreneur and influencer. 

Desai has two young children and is currently pregnant with her third. She regularly posts photos of her family on her Instagram, which also includes her beautiful maternity looks. One of the most popular videos is of her daughter Mila, doing her makeup.

Born on October 8th in Houston, Texas, Ami Rawal Desai is a celebrated Indian American beauty and lifestyle influencer. Before Desai had children, she had worked in many segments of the entertainment industry. She started her career by working with E! Network and Hollywood.com, and she was a producer at Inside Edition. After her time behind the camera, she began hosting her own shows. She hosted Lux Lifestyles, a luxury travel show on Wealth TV. Also, she was most recently the premier host for #OWNshow, a web-exclusive show on Oprah.com.

During this time, she also built her beauty business. Her focus was on providing makeup services for South Asian women like herself. “There was a huge need for it,” Desai said. “Many South Asian women didn’t have anyone who knew how to do their makeup professionally because they weren’t familiar with what works for them. I have worked with brides, models, and Hollywood talent, making them look the best for their big moment.”

Now, Desai works as an on-air beauty and lifestyle expert. She is regularly interviewed on segments with Home & Family TV and KTLA 5 News. But perhaps her most well-known work is her Instagram account, where she is a mom influencer with over 92k followers. “Becoming a mother helped me become a better entrepreneur,” Desai said. “I’ve learned how to budget my time and prioritize. I no longer spend every waking moment thinking about my business. I’ve carved out a life for myself where I get to slow down and enjoy the time I have with my kids.”

Desai is also passionate about instilling the values of beauty in her kids. “To be beautiful, you should be able to admire someone else’s beauty without questioning your own,” Desai said. “I make sure to teach that to my kids. You don’t need the best concealer or bathing suit to be pretty. Beauty isn’t always something you can see.”

It just requires a lot of hard work and the energy to have fun, even after a long day at the office. Desai is very grateful that she’s able to manage her entrepreneurial pursuits and still spend the time she needs to be dedicated to her family.

On May 18th, 2018, BTS released their highly anticipated third full-length album Love Yourself: Tear lead by the single Fake Love. Now two years later, we reflect on why this album was such a pivotal moment in the septets career.

Love Yourself: Tear was the second instalment in the seven-piece groups Love Yourself series. After the light-hearted, EDM influenced mini album HER, BTS took a deeper dive into the journey of learning to love yourself. Tear dove headfirst into the journey of losing yourself, as album opened Intro: Singularity. Singularity was key for setting the tone for this album, with a sultry R’n’B groove and lyrics such as “I dumped myself into the lake, I buried my voice for you” and “have I lost myself, or have I gained you?”, the darker tone for this project was set in stone. Title track Fake Love continued this, the trap and hip-hop heavy instrumental glazed over with the narrative of becoming a shadow of your former self in the process of a relationship gone south. “I grew a flower that can’t be bloomed in a dream that can’t come true” and “try babbling into the mirror, who the heck are you?” took BTS is a darker direction of exploring themselves than previously seen and laid out a road for them to explore this further.

Tear split itself into two sections: the uncertainty and the rediscovery. The first half of the album, filled with B-sides such as The Truth Untold, 134340 and Paradise showed the fearful, lonely and uncertainty that BTS were exploring with losing who you are and having no real sense of direction now that you have lost that. While the rediscover emerges through Magic Shop, Anpanman and So What, where BTS explore those who love you and find a safe haven in that. The upbeat demeanour reflects those messages. Ending on the rap-line unit track Outro: Tear, concludes all of this and ties it up into one big bow, reflecting on the past and letting out the aggression while understanding things needed to end. The album was strong and cohesive throughout, not sonically as BTS are known for experimenting with their sounds, but lyrically. During a climate where anxieties run high and life is so fast paced that we lose ourselves, Tear held onto messages that were relatable and understanding for those of all ages.

The album gave BTS their first big burst of critical acclaim, garnering a Metacritic score of 74/100. While commercially, Love Yourself: Tear became BTS’ first Number 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, making history as the first Korean act to reach that spot on the chart. Additionally, Fake Love became the first Korean group song to debut in the Top 10 of the Hot 100 Chart.

Through the raw album concept of exploring how to learn to love and accept who you are, BTS crafted an album that reached millions worldwide and bounced their success to new unimaginable levels for seven Korean artists. BTS proved that despite language barriers, their music was universal and could reach those who needed it.

On May 16th, celebrities gathered from across the globe for an event titled “Graduate Together” to celebrate the Class of 2020. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the seniors this year were not able to have any sort of commencement ceremony and this was just one effort to give them something special.

The livestream was held on YouTube and aired on ABC, CBS, NBC, and others. The guest list ranged from Yara Shahidi to LeBron James, and even former President Barack Obama. Selena Gomez and Malala Yousafzai joined to offer words of encouragement whilst performers included Alicia Keys, H.E.R, Dua Lipa, and others. The Platt Brothers also featured to sing a medley of songs that fit the experience of graduating.

However, the spotlight truly shined on students who were featured, from those dancing alongside Dua Lipa to the brave ones sharing their stories on camera. The livestream offered many small ways to honor the students whether it be giving them a segment to speak in or adding pictures they submitted in the background. One girl gave her story about being a first-generation college student in her family, which is a proud achievement.

Students were not the only ones honored but Timothée Chalamet spoke about the teachers impacted this year and even highlighted three of his favorites from school.

Families were also given a moment to speak, with parents sitting alongside their graduating senior honoring them.

High schools across the U.S. were featured in a rolling text allowing nearly everyone in the country to be saluted too. Along with those graduating, the livestream held an ‘In Memoriam’ section to honor those who’s lost their lives.

The whole livestream can be seen on Youtube now, posted by NBC News.

Lottie Tomlinson is one of two cover stars for Sister Magazine’s latest issue which sees the popular zine team up with The Grief Network to explore and hopefully start bigger conversations about a subject that still many refuse to talk about openly.

In the interview, Lottie addresses the unjust criticism she faced publicly after going on nights with her friends and brother Louis Tomlinson when her Mum passed away in 2016. Lottie has previously spoken about dealing with grief for Sue Ryder’s #JustSaySomething campaign.

In the interview for Sister Magazine Lottie also talks about starting her own business, Tanologist has helped her channel her grief from the passing of both her Mum and younger sister Fizzy into something positive and how it’s part of her coping mechanism. Lottie has stated she hopes that by opening up about her own experiences she hopes it will bring comfort to others who are experiencing or have gone through similar to what she has.

“I’ve tried to positives in the situation. It took me a while to get there, of course. But I see myself lucky because I had an amazing mum for 18 years, and I had an amazing sister too, and now they are together. It feels like they were meant to be together. Everything I do work-wise I credit my mum for that. I definitely wouldn’t be where I was without her. Starting Tanologist has been really a bit part of my coping mechanism. Launching it was such a proud moment.”

Lottie Tomlinson-Sister Magazine.

Founder Rachel Wilson began The Grief Network in 2018 at the age of 26, when she lost her Mum and found there was little support for people her age.

The Grief Network is a community for people who have been bereaved at a young age (in their late teens/twenties/thirties) – we provide a space for young people to meet others who have been bereaved, and we run events that challenge the stereotypes around grief, as well as trying to better represent what it’s like to experience grief when you’re young, and how it evolves throughout your life.

By addressing her flaws in a previous relationship, Cally Rhodes has crafted a breakup anthem with a difference. Her new single ‘Downfalls’ is both introspective and incredible!

Laying honest lyrics and heartfelt vocals over an addictive beat, Cally opens up and apologises to an ex for her actions. The Welsh songstress, who has experienced worldwide streaming success, wrote ‘Downfalls’ with Rich James Roberts and it’s an absolute pop gem from start to finish.

Speaking to us exclusively about her latest single, Cally said: “‘Downfalls’ is an upbeat and candid song apologising to an ex about the way I acted during a past relationship. I think we’re living in a world where it’s really easy to write songs and criticise our exes but I wanted to flip that on its head and write a song where I apologise for my downfalls.

‘Downfalls’ is available on all digital platforms here. The catchy track follows Cally’s previous single ‘Too Close‘ which touches on the struggle to understand one’s own self-worth. With each and every release, Cally adds to her already incredible discography.

Cally’s impressive vocals can also heard on ‘Sad Song‘ by Dualities. The collaboration, which was only released last month, has already reached nearly half a million streams on Spotify. After hearing the track, we’re not surprised that it’s proven to be so popular.

As we predicted, 2020 has been a fantastic year for Cally Rhodes so far. The songbird, who recently supported Louise Redknapp in Cardiff, continues to make waves in the industry and she has more tunes on the way soon. You can keep up with Cally via: Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.

Netta Releases New Song “Cuckoo” And Reveals Video On Eurovision: Europe Shine A Light https://celebmix.com/netta-cuckoo-video-eurovision-europe-shine-a-light/ Sun, 17 May 2020 09:36:08 +0000 https://celebmix.com/?p=239060 This content is copyright of CelebMix.com.

For all the viewers who watched Eurovision: Europe Shine A Light, you would’ve seen Netta reveal her brand new song “Cuckoo” in an exclusive stripped-back clip for the show. This visual literally touched us right in the heart and gave us chills. This release follows up her feature on Dego’s single “Corona” and her single “Ricki Lake“.

Netta Barzilai has had a whirlwind two years, from entering HaKokhav HaBa, the Israeli national selection show to Eurovision, to going on to win the contest and getting the chance to represent Israel at Eurovision 2018, to then going on to win with her song, “Toy”. The song became an international success, even reaching the US Billboard Dance and US Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Songs charts. The music video has reached over 100 million YouTube views, becoming the first and only video to reach that milestone on the official Eurovision Song Contest YouTube channel. Then, in early 2019, she followed the Eurovision song up with “Bassa Sababa” which is just as addicting and has an incredible bubble-gum visual to accompany it, she then released “Nana Banana” which she performed at Eurovision 2019, and then followed that up, this year, with the awesome track “Ricki Lake”. Netta is going to continue to be someone to watch in the coming years, and she’s just proven herself to the world that she can do a stripped-back ballad with this powerful new single “Cuckoo”.

This new song is unlike her previous tracks, it’s stripped back and shows off her vocal capabilities and her emotional input. It has been written by Bert Elliott, Krysta Marie Youngs, and Netta Barzilai, whist it has been produced by Bert Elliott and JR Rotem.

Talking about the song, Netta said: “This song was written about the feeling of being stuck in a loop, that you don’t know if you created yourself or someone else built for you. We decided to recreate this feeling with a music box. We worked over three months to build a custom made music box, which was very tricky because it’s an instrument that was manufactured by hand back in the 16th century. I’ve had this image stuck in my mind for a long time – a ballerina stuck inside a jewellery box, spinning around forever in a loop. Just like I’m afraid I might be. ‘Cuckoo’ is my confession. It reveals a vulnerable side of me, which I’ve never let anyone see before. I am in a place where everything happened to me really fast, and I can’t help but doubt things.”

Watch Netta’s Music Box Video For “Cuckoo” Here:

The video above debuted on the Eurovision replacement show, Eurovision: Europe Shine A Light, which was broadcasted across 46 countries, and sees Netta in lockdown, wearing pink comfortable clothes, sitting on a bed with a music box in front of her. She turns the handle and sings the song, adding her heart and soul into the performance. Vocals were on-point, to the extent where we got chills, and the meaning of the song was totally heartbreaking, relatable, and real, allowing Netta to truly connect with everyone at home. This is a performance we are never going to forget.

The studio version of the track is a bit more upbeat, but the message behind the song is only more enforced. You can really hear that the lyrics are about a stalled relationship, unsure of how she got where she is now and whether there’s any hope left – which is even more relatable as millions of people have been on lockdown recently, away from their partners and their loved ones.

“Cuckoo” by Netta is available to download and stream, right now, via Tedy Productions under exclusive licence to BMG Rights Management.

It’s definitely not a “Bad Idea” to listen to this new song on repeat now!

LA-raised and based artist Leah Kate is back as she makes her musical comeback with a groovy, 80s-tinged banger titled “Bad Idea”.

Following her EP “Impulse” and after landing placements on TV shows such as “The Bold Type” or “The Hills: New Beginnings”, this brand new release continues the artist’s streak of crafting extremely catchy tunes.

Leah Kate’s new track lyrically deals with her struggles of pursuing a forbidden love. “Could we keep this a secret, that nobody needs to hear/ Cos I know that you’re a bad idea”, the singer asks during the synth-laden chorus. Paired with a glossy production, Leah provides us with the perfect, dreamy fantasy escape from reality that is very much needed during these times.

Listen to the track right here; it’s not a bad idea, we promise:

We had the wonderful chance to ask Leah Kate some of our most burning questions about the new release, her art and more in a small interview. Be sure to check it out down below.

How are you and where are you currently “quarantining”?

I’m great – at home with my family in Los Angeles. 

Congratulations on the release, it’s such a good song! How does it feel to release music during these times?

Thank you! It feels absolutely amazing. I just hope I can bring some people joy during this time.

“bad idea” is a bit more electronic than your previous releases: What were some of the inspirations behind it, musically and lyrically?

I had a few 80s references and even Tame Impala was a musical reference as well. The song definitely has more of a funky retro edge to it. Lyrically I’ve just been more honest and more in touch with myself which I think reflects in the songs.

How long did it take for the song to fully come together and how was the process behind it?

Kind of a while because we wrote it on a Saturday on the very last day before lock down began and still had finishing touches to add. We ended up doing it all remotely and I recorded the vocals here at home. But as much as it may have been slowed down because of everything, it was definitely worth the wait! 

Speaking in general: how do you usually go about when crafting a new record?

Usually I will have an idea or a story of what I’m going to write about but typically I start with my melody ideas! 

You recently relocated from New York back to LA for your career: why did you feel the time was right and how did this step influence your creative process?

To be honest, my lease went up and I had been feeling a bit lonely there and as if I didn’t have as much of a purpose. All of the music collaborating I do is in LA or London and I felt it was time to be based here mainly for those reasons. I had my fun in NYC, don’t get me wrong, those were the best 4 years of my life but I missed my family and wanted to focus on writing to the fullest. 

You quit your corporate job in order to follow your dream of becoming a musician: what made you decide that this was the right thing to do and what have you learned in the transitioning process?

To be honest, I got fired for doing something super dumb but it was such a blessing in disguise. It was always on the side for me and just a way to support living in NYC. They didn’t love that being a musician was obviously my full time career. The week I got fired from that job it was my first time landing New Music Friday on Spotify and the start of many, very packed shows. It was all meant to be and looking back, I’m grateful to have been fired.

Are you allowed to tell us whether any more music is coming out soon?

Yes! Multiple singles!

What are your best ideas for keeping your mental health in place during corona?

Exercise! I try to do an hour walk a day as well as some type of online workout. Also, staying busy really helps during this time like reading, online courses, cooking, breathing, etc.

What is your biggest goal for this year?

To hit 10 million streams on a song!

Thank you so much for the interview!

“bad idea” was independently released by Leah Kate yesterday. It was written by herself, Louis Schoorl and Hayley Gene Penner.

The song is now available to purchase and stream on the digital retailer and platform of your choice. Find yours by clicking here.

In a world completely consumed by digital media, one female business owner took her knowledge and creativity and turned a side project into her next big move.

Maria Molino , the owner of The Haute Maven Boutique, founded in Red Bank, NJ in October 2017 (now shuttered due to COVID-19), took the coronavirus pandemic as an opportunity to reevaluate her career path. Finding retail to be on a severe downward spiral, she put emotion aside and closed her brick and mortar establishment to focus on her side project, a company she calls THM Social.

What began as a pet project in September 2018 after Maria took over the management of a friend’s restaurant’s Instagram, in an attempt to help them achieve similar results to her already flourishing personal and business accounts, Maria found herself being pitched to one of Broadway’s newest productions, Pretty Woman the Musical.

Friends with Broadway royalty duo Orfeh & Andy Karl, Maria was suggested to producers and the creative team after pitching a Halloween Contest idea for the show’s fans. Having staged herself in two of the shows most iconic outfits, they quickly realized she had vision. While the ball got moving too slowly for her fan costume contest idea to see fruition, she did end up finding herself managing the show’s Instagram account by January 2019.

With songs written by Oscar Nominated songwriter, Bryan Adams, and Jim Vallance, Pretty Woman the Musical was already a hit in New York, but it’s social media presence had been seriously lacking. According to Maria, her tenure on Broadway went something like this:

One of my closest friends (Tony nominee, Orfeh) was starring in Pretty Woman with her husband and she and some other cast members would remark on how much they loved my Instagram content. It’s not everyday you wake up to find Broadway producers, choreographers and actors suddenly following and commenting on your content. It was extremely flattering. Orfeh was kind enough to share the sentiment with the producers that I should have a hand in helping them. And as a result,  I took over the social media for a time.  The engagement during the time I was involved increased and the cast was extremely happy working with me as opposed to not knowing who would show up each time they were asked for content. The content became more organic, more real and relatable instead of always feeling advertorial.  Whenever I wanted to set up a photo shoot they were more than happy to oblige. Between PW and my other accounts I realized I really did have a knack for this.

We spoke to Orfeh about Maria’s time with the production and she had this to say, “During Maria’s time managing the social media at Pretty Woman, you never saw a cast more amenable to being involved in the social media aspect of the show….many of whom were already very adept in that department, which speaks volumes about Maria’s talents. This is coupled with the fact that she always made it fun and extremely creative.”

The show’s leading man, Andy Karl, was equally as impressed, “Maria made everything easy. She was able to get her job done in a fraction of the time others would and you never felt rushed. So much more enjoyable than not knowing what to expect.”

Seems Maria Molino and THM Social have a bright future when Broadway gets up and running again. In the meanwhile, Maria has focused her efforts on small businesses from her hometown of Red Bank and in New York City. Working tirelessly to make sure they get themselves out there while people are currently at home glued to their phones and computers. A masterful plan to say the least.

Grammy-nominated artist and global phenomenon Post Malone has announced the launch of his own French rosé called Maison No.9 which will be available this summer.

This light, high-quality and accessible rosé defies the stigmas and traditional perceptions around wine. Maison No.9 will break down barriers and allow customers to enjoy an affordable rosé.

The idea originally was sparked from Post Malone’s passion for the Mediterranean lifestyle and rosé in general along with the concept of combining it with a fine-class winery. The “Circle” singer spent most of 2019 traveling back and forth with his business partners to Provence, France, where the wine was and continues to be created. They remained dedicated to perfecting this product by working with high-class winemaker Alexis Cornu to try a variety of grapes and sample blends over a extensive period of time.

Photo Credit: Greg Reego

Maison No.9 is the result of a successful collaboration between Post Malone, his friend and entrepreneur James Morrissey from Global Brand Equities, and Dre London, his long-time music manager.

Founder Post Malone says: “It’s a nice switch up and I have been thinking about doing my own wine for a while. It was great to work with Global Brand Equities because they saw the vision and we got to do some super cool stuff. Maison No. 9 goes down smooth, and you’re all going to love it!”

This brand new rosé will be available online and in stores nationwide this June. It is exclusively distributed by E. & J. Gallo Winery. A special pre-sale of the wine as well as limited edition merchandise will be accessible online before its official launch.

Be sure to sign-up here to be the first to know when the pre-sale is live.

ALBUM REVIEW: Charli XCX’s spectacularly daring ‘how i’m feeling now’ https://celebmix.com/album-review-charli-xcxs-spectacularly-daring-how-im-feeling-now/ Fri, 15 May 2020 15:45:44 +0000 https://celebmix.com/?p=238895 This content is copyright of CelebMix.com.

On her ambitious quarantine inspired record, ‘how i’m feeling now’, Charli XCX provides an intimate snapshot of life in isolation with unrivalled flair.

For most pop music bigwigs, recording and releasing a new record in the space of two months would be a big no go. For Charli XCX however, always first to show the pop rule book the middle finger, doing exactly that was a challenge too hard to resist.

The end product, how I’m feeling now, hits streaming services today. An introspective look into the highs and lows of life right now, XCX has thrived off the innumerable obstacles placed in her way to create what is her best work to date. Behind the record’s mammoth electro drops and clanking outros are musings on nostalgia, relationships, confinement and a burning desire to get the f**k out of quarantine – how I’m feeling now is not just a record for now, but an album that will serve as a time capsule to 2020’s madness in years to come.

View this post on Instagram

just birthed an album. link in bio #howimfeelingnow

A post shared by Charli (@charli_xcx) on

Through phone calls, Zoom meetings and social media, XCX has assembled the motley crew of A.G. Cook, Dylan Brady, umru and Danny L Harle, who jump in and out of production credits across how I’m feeling now‘s 11 tracks. The popstress also calls on BJ Burton, of Lizzo and Banks fame, to join Cook as an executive producer. Though whilst the production credits are classically long, how I’m feeling now marks XCX’s first album without any features.

The result is that XCX gets full airtime to tell her own story of life on lockdown. At its most poignant, how I’m feeling now sees the 27-year-old settle her gaze on those around her at home. On ‘enemy’ she worries just how intimate her relationship with boyfriend Huck Kwong is and the ammunition he would have if turned from lover to enemy, tied together with a voice memo on the “tough journey” of life right now. ‘detonate’ follows suit as the singer coos about overthinking with skewing autotune and ‘i finally understand’ is an ode to distance therapy meetings with a genius Palmistry beat.

What Charli XCX has to say on how I’m feeling now is hardly one-dimensional, as is the nature of highs and lows on lockdown: “Can I balance myself out and just feel neutral? Or do I have to experience the highs and the lows? And I think that’s something that a lot of people are probably always going through, but particularly going through during this time,” she tells NME.

So when the ‘Vroom Vroom’ singer wants to fantasize about partying with friends again, she holds nothing back. Album opener ‘pink diamond’ is inspired by FaceTiming none other than Jenifer Lopez and Dua Lipa and longing to have that meet-up in person. It’s a brash introduction and XCX revels in admitting that, “I wanted it as the first track because I’m into the idea that some people will love it and some people will hate it”. Elsewhere, on ‘c2.0’ she rejuvenates Charli fan-favourite ‘Click’ from a rowdy celebration of having the best friends, to a rowdy longing to be partying with them.

Setting out her intentions of getting fans involved in the record from the start, Charli XCX follows through on ‘forever‘ whose music video features clips of fans’ XCX memories over the years and snippets of their lives at home in quarantine. The singer ropes in her followers again through an Instagram live writing session for the second verse of album highlight ‘anthems’, a track already waiting on the dance floor of underground clubs for when they open again.

With it’s heavy and avant-garde production, some may well write how i’m feeling now off as nothing more than the latest PC Music inspired experiment. Really, Charli XCX has a lot more at play here. The pop star has been known for pushing boundaries ever since the Vroom Vroom EP in 2016 and continued that trajectory on 2017’s mixtapes and last year’s Charli. Now, however, the star consolidates that sound with a cohesive expression of life in 2020 to make a project that deserves to be heralded as one of the best.

Rating – 5/5

Pop super group KEiiNO today release their debut album OKTA – a collection of powerful and euphoric pop-bops, all guaranteed to please the Norwegian bands huge international fanbase!

When Northern Lights are dancing…

Since capturing the attention of music lovers with the world over following their show-stopping appearance at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2019, KEiiNO have gone on to amass 45 million Spotify streams, release 7 singles, collaborate with Electric Fields and tour the globe extensively – playing sold out shows in London, Melbourne and Sydney as well as appearing on the bill at Pride Festivals in Madrid, Cologne and Stockholm.

We caught up with Tom from the band to talk new music, life in lockdown and why OKTA has been a long time coming…

Firstly, we must ask how you and the rest of the band are doing during this rather unsettling time?

We’re doing fine, thank you! All our families are safe which is the most important thing. We have lost all gigs, that were supposed to pay for the album-production, but compared to those that really struggle from the effect of the lockdown, we are lucky.

So your debut album OKTA is released TODAY – you must be so excited?! What’s the general feeling like in the KEiiNO camp right now?

Absolutely, we’re so excited! This baby is months overdue, so we’re really happy to finally be able to show the world our new songs. We’ve been apart from one an another for over two months now because of pandemic, we’re so happy to finally get back together on stage.

How long have you been working on the record?

It’s been a while now. After winning Melodi Grand Prix in Norway (an annual music competition organised by Norwegian public broadcaster Norsk Rikskringkasting), we were determined about staying together as a band after Eurovision, so we’ve been writing and recording every free moment.

Can you tell us a little bit about your creative process, and how you approached the songwriting and recording of the album?

We were on the road close to 200 days last year, so many of the songs on the album were written and recorded whilst on tour. Sometimes we’d just start jamming with an idea backstage at a show that I then record and send to our producer, and we’d build a song around that. We write lyrics together as a band, along with my husband, and then we have musicians recording their parts at home and sending it over to us. At one point, I was editing vocals in between sound checks in Australia, and sending it to our producer in Berlin, before he sent it to our mixing-engineer in Norway, who sent it to the US for mastering. But writing is an ever ongoing process for us, and as soon as the album was finished we started writing new songs.

You have such a unique and powerful sound – it’s both straight up pop yet soulful, uplifting and emotional all at the same time – how important was it to you as a band to really push yourselves musically, to further strengthen and hone that distinctive sound?

The three of us have very different backgrounds, and I think because of that the group is so diverse, so we’ll always sound a bit different to everyone else. But we are all pop-heads, so whenever we start on something a bit less mainstream, we tend to end up with something catchy and singalong. But we are far from having reached our full potential as a group, and I feel like the songs are getting better with every try.

You’ve worked with such a diverse mix of artists on the album, how did those collaborations come about?

Incorporating Joik into our music added another layer to the pop-sound that we were going for on this album. I guess because we brought some more attention to Joik and the Sàmi language, we were appointed ambassadors of the UN Year of Indigenous Languages. That inspired us to see if it was possible to add even more Indigenous elements and still make “streamable” pop songs. So we did some research, and got in touch with four Indigenous artists from around the world that we felt would be a good match. But we have a very diverse team on the whole album, as talent from 16 nations have contributed in one way or another, and it’s recorded in 6 countries on three continents.

How would you best describe OKTA?

Because of the long process it took to make the album and all of it’s contributors, OKTA is very diverse. A lot of people find it uplifting, and also packed with energy. There’s also a bit of flirting with the 90s and 00s sound, and I guess it has a lot to do with our personalities. I don’t think we’ll ever make a Lana del Rey or Billie Eilish-sounding album.

Bed With The Wolf is the lead single to be released from album, can you tell us a little bit about the track?

If you’ve ever had a one-night-stand, I guess there is a chance afterwards that you’ve felt like you’ve done something you shouldn’t have – you know that feeling of having one voice in your head yelling “shame, shame” while another voice is screaming “yes, yes!” Tom, growing up in a conservative part of Norway and having quite a hard time accepting he wasn’t straight, especially relates to the theme.

This maybe a difficult question for you to answer, as I’m sure you feel an emotional attachment to all of them, but which, if any, are some of your favourite songs on the album?

We love all our babies! But right now, I guess Fred’s pick must be Black Leather, Alexandra has Dancing In The Smoke as one of her favourites, and Tom’s favourite is Bed with the Wolf.

With everything going on in the world right now, you will have obviously had to change your promo schedule in the run up to the records release – how has that been?

Well our release party is now digital, which we’re really excited about! We’re streaming it on our Facebook and YouTube accounts TODAY, Friday 15.05 at 19.00 CET. We had a intensive promo-tour to many European cities planned, but sadly that wont happen. Most interviews are done digital anyway now, but not being able to perform live is a huge drawback.

Once things go back to normal are there plans / hopes to tour? You must be excited to play some of the new tracks live for fans?

Of course! We’re ready to play as soon as the borders are opened up, and people allowed to gather again! I hope that can sometime in the autumn, but I fear it won’t before next year.

Again because of the global pandemic, it’s difficult to predict, but what’s next for KEiiNO and what do you hope to achieve throughout the rest of the year?

We hope to be able to reach a lot of new listeners with OKTA, as well as write some more hits which will be released later on in year.

KEiiNO’s debut album OKTA is out NOW!

KPOP has been slowly growing over the last decade but in recent years has truly made its explosion into the west. From BTS cementing their place as top selling artists globally to Blackpink performing at Coachella, Korean pop music is fast becoming one of the most popular entertainment markets worldwide. One of the latest groups to hit the industry are ITZY, a fun, fab five-piece who are on the tracks to becoming one of the biggest girl groups in KPOP.

ITZY come from JYP Entertainment, the home to one of the biggest names in the industry, Twice. In contrast to their sister group, the girls are the current princesses of the teen crush concept. Singing about being secure in who you are and loving your current self, ITZY are important to the teens of Korea and globally. Debuting under the same agency as one of South Korea’s biggest female exports, there was a sense of pressure for them to live up to JYP’s history of strong girl groups. Only one year into their career, ITZY are carving their own place in JYP history and becoming one of the most exciting groups of the fourth generation of KPOP.

ITZY consists of five members: Yeji, Ryujin, Lia, Chaeryeong and Yuna. Debuting in February 2019 with Dalla-Dalla, the high energy and in-your-face single, they made their mark in the industry by stepping firmly into a solid, powerful, and confident self-love concept. Dalla-Dalla became one of the most loved songs in South Korea of 2019 and solidified ITZY as the top rookie girl group of 2019 (and it was also in our top 10 KPOP songs of the year, FYI.) ICY followed up with a similar message of not caring what others think because you know you are IT. As well as becoming South Korea’s beloved rookie girl group, the girls made their mark internationally, being one of the most anticipated acts at the American leg of KCON. Despite only have a 15-minute-long set, the quintet had the crowd hooked from the very get-go.

Entering 2020 with their latest comeback It’z Me, a mini album continuing their mission to empower teens (and even those older who still need reminding) to embrace themselves. Wannabe, the title track sings of not wanting to be anyone but themselves and is definitely their most well rounded single thus far. Commercially, the EP shifted 60,000 copies in its first week of release, double the amount that It’z ICY sold the previous summer. It’z Me has since gone on to sell 126,000 copies in its first month of release.

Only one year into their career and ITZY are on a fast track to becoming one of the top girl groups in South Korea and are on their way to advancing globally with their popularity increases with each new release.

Maya Delilah is a rising singer-songwriter who is taking the music industry by storm with her unique fusion of relatable RnB-soul with a sprinkling of pop. Singing about everything from boys to cats and everything in between, Maya’s music has the ability to resonate with the masses.

Not only does Maya deliver pitch-perfect vocals, honest lyrics, personality, and catchy melodies, but her songs are all held together by stunning guitar harmonies which showcase her talent as a musician. Combating the stereotype of the guitar being a ‘male instrument’ one song at a time, Maya is living proof that women can rock it with the best of them.

With her debut EP due for release this summer, Maya has been busy teasing some of its tracks, the latest being ‘i’m just stupid’ which dropped today (May 15). Laced with soul, the track tackles an all too familiar situation – when an overthinking brain is faced with a potential new relationship.

We caught up with Maya to discuss her new single, her forthcoming EP, the importance of inspiring young women to play instruments, and more.

Hi Maya! How are you doing during this really strange time?

Hello hello! I am doing surprisingly well actually, thank you for asking. I am someone who generally can’t stand to spend an entire day indoors so, considering that, I seem to be doing pretty good. 

Amidst the madness, you’re releasing your new single ‘i’m just stupid’. Can you tell us a bit about the track and how it came about?

Indeed I am. This song is by far the most fun song on the EP. Me and my producer (Stephen Barnes) really wanted a relatable, joyful song about the start of a relationship. The song is basically describing that back and forth feeling when first seeing someone and just overthinking everything.

How long did it take for the song to form from an initial idea to the final track?

Well, it was based around these chords that I was stuck on for SO long, I think this was the fourth go at writing a song to them – I just knew they were too tasty to go to waste, so safe to say it look longer than usual. However, as someone that lyrics doesn’t come easy to, the lyrics to this particular song were done in pretty much one sitting. Me and Stephen recently discovered that I find writing much easier when I don’t over think it and just have fun with it which I did with this song. 

What’s your favourite lyric from the song?

I think its the pre chorus ‘dum dum dum de dum, oh I’m dum dum dum de dum, dum dum dum de dum dum dum oh I’m dum dum dum de dum, for you’ – not really sure if this counts as one lyric lol. But I like this part best cos it kind of outlines very clearly the whole point of the song – feeling dumb because of how someone has made you feel but at the same time you let yourself continuously feel this way cos of the feelings you have for them. 

As well as great lyrics, ‘i’m just stupid’ also features your brilliant guitar skills including a dreamy guitar solo. The music industry is constantly being fed male guitar-playing singer songwriters, so how important is it for you to inspire other young girls to pick up an instrument?

It’s my main aim and always will be as a female musician and guitarist. As someone who’s had experienced first-hand sexism surrounding my musicianship being a woman, I know how it can drop one’s confidence, however it does make me want to prove the stereotype wrong and do this with other women / young women alongside me. Nothing beats the feeling that when I get a message saying I inspired a young girl to pick up the guitar – I hope to get to do this on a wide scale.

You’ve actually got your own ‘Table Time’ sessions on your YouTube channel where you jam with your guitar. Can you tell us a bit about that?

Yes, my table time series up on YouTube was basically inspired by people getting annoyed at me on Instagram for posting such short loops. Very nice and flattering – thank you those people for getting annoyed. I decided I wanted to get more active on YouTube anyway, so it seemed a great way to do so. It’s basically me sitting on a table playing the guitar. I haven’t done one for a while but am planning on doing more and potentially getting others involved and joining me on the table (maybe put a cheeky competition in place) – when it is socially acceptable and legal of course.

You’ve released a few tracks recently which are taken from your debut EP which is out this summer. What can you tell us about the EP as a whole and the message behind it?

So, this past year me and Stephen have made a crazy amount of songs. We started a project where we decided not to think too much about how the EP would sound overall, but instead chose to write a LOT and then pick our faves. We named all the songs different sweet pie names (banoffee pie, pumpkin pie, lemon pie etc.) and when we hit a baker’s dozen, we knew it was time to pick our favourites to go into the EP (and give them appropriate names). So, the EP doesn’t follow a particular story or message really but is just sums up the last year for me personally. Overall, there is a theme of boys and cats… but the next EP will definitely have more of a story as it’s a concept EP, WHICH I FIND VERY EXCITING!!

Alongside the EP tracks, you recently unveiled a charity track called ‘Safe’ in dedication to the NHS. Was the song inspired specifically by the pandemic or was it something which was in the pipeline prior to current events?

Yes, it was inspired by the pandemic as I moved in with a friend after my sister self-isolated quite early on. I realised that despite the craziness happening in the world I wasn’t freaking out too much and felt weirdly calm and this was due to being with the right person that made me feel safe. I knew to fit the mood of the song I wanted it very stripped back and I have been obsessed with Mac Miller’s ‘Circles’ for a good few months, so used it for the musical inspiration.

We also love the music video for it, which features your friends, family and fans from around the world. How did it feel to watch back the finished product, knowing that so many people were involved?

Thank you!! Yes, it very very cool and wholesome to watch come to life and see the final version. It was so lovely seeing that people could relate and were feeling safe is such a strange time.

Who or what inspires you when it comes to making music?

Soooo many things. It’s hard to pin-point something or someone in particular as it could even be something as weird as my cat constantly running away from me which is what one of the songs on the EP is about. I’m very inspired by a wide range of music too, having grown up with a diverse selection of music being played around the house so I guess each song is inspired by different artists and situations.

What advice would you give to anyone taking their first steps into making music?

As basic as it is, just keep keep keep going. Keep making new things, keep writing, keep learning from others. It really helped me and got me off my feet being around other musicians, which I was as I was lucky enough to have gone to a music specialist sixth form. I’d just say surround yourself with inspiring people and don’t be afraid to ask for help – you can always learn from others, so why not?? In my opinion, having too much pride and so not asking for help doesn’t get you as far as you think it will. 

What is your biggest dream as a musician?

I LOVE performing, so to get to perform to large audiences is a huge dream of mine. And, as I said previously, inspiring young girls to pick up the guitar and break the outdated gender stereotype around the guitar being a male-dominated instrument is the main aim. 

Finally, would you like to share your social media handles so that our readers can keep updated with you?

YAS my Instagram is @mayadelilahh (mayadelilah was taken, sad!), my Twitter (where I post very random thoughts) is @maya_delilah, my YouTube and Facebook are both Maya Delilah!! THANK YOU – BIG LUV.

Thank you so much to Maya for her time! ‘i’m just stupid’ is out now.

DJ and producer Kygo continues to tease his new album Golden Hour today with the release of new track ‘Lose Somebody’, which sees him team up with OneRepublic once more.

Whilst the previous releases from Golden Hour have been uplifting and melodic, ‘Lose Somebody’ takes on a slightly more melancholic tone whilst keeping elements of Kygo’s signature sound intact.

The track features emotional vocals from OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, with the song  acknowledging that sometimes it’s a mistake to walk away from someone, and you only realise how much you love them once it’s too late. “Sometimes you gotta lose somebody just to find out you really love them,”, Ryan sings over the soaring chorus.

This is the second time that Kygo and OneRepublic have collaborated, after releasing ‘Stranger Things’ which was taken from the DJ’s second album Kids in Love.

Take a listen to ‘Lose Somebody’ below.

‘Lose Somebody’ is the latest track to be unveiled from Golden Hour, which will also include ‘Like It Is’ featuring Zara Larsson and Tyga and ‘Freedom’ featuring Zak Abel.

Earlier this week, Kygo teased the tracklist for the 18-track album before announcing the collaborators who have been involved with the project.

Golden Hour tracklist

  1. ‘The Truth’ with Valerie Broussard
  2. ‘Lose Somebody’ with OneRepublic
  3. ‘Feels Like Forever’ with Jaimie N Commons
  4. ‘Freedom’ with Zak Abel
  5. ‘Beautiful’ with Sandro Cavazza
  6. ‘To Die For’ with St. Lundi

Los Angeles folk/pop artist Lucy & La Mer sends a message to the people that we’re all in this together with her latest track. Her uplifting new visuals act as a reminder, that for the first time in history, everyone across the globe are experiencing the repercussions of these unprecedented times.

Isolating from our loved ones and forbidden to socialise leaves us feeling alone and Lucy wants to emphasize that more than ever before we are united. The inspiring “Together” delivers an upbeat, feel-good vibe, with toe-tapping rhythms and joyful melodies. 

The heart-warming visuals are a collection of videos and selfies from Lucy’s friends and frontline healthcare workers and they are sure to put a smile on your face. Dancing, singing and highlighting the small things that are getting them through these strange days, Lucy has created a collage radiating positivity and hope. Included in the video are famed Youtubers Gaby Dunn and Chris Villain as well as Twitch influencer Raquel Lily. 

Lucy shares in her press release, “I wanted to create something that would help us uplift and encourage each other. There’s a tremendous amount of good happening in the world right now. In the midst of the intense losses and surreal new normal, I think continuing to share our stories will alleviate the loneliness that many individuals are feeling at home. For me, my mental health struggled tremendously during the first few weeks of the stay-at-home regulation. By connecting with fans and friends to create this video, I felt more normal and less anxious. We’re all doing this together.”

So if you’re feeling down, then turn up the volume, get up off the couch and feel at ease with the sunny new single “Together.” Be sure to keep an eye on Lucy’s socials for any upcoming live-streaming events!

British singer-songwriter Will Callan returns with the release of his brand new single, Waste Of You – a delicate, tender heartfelt ballad that chronicles the demise of a once loving, and meaningful relationship.

Serving as the follow up to the fierce and feisty sound of Forgiving & Forgetting, Waste Of You sees Will seamlessly switch musical gears, producing a much softer and sombre, stripped-back track that perfectly demonstrates his versatility as an artist and songwriter, which in turn, showcases an all together different, more mature, side to one of pop’s most exciting new talents.

With its sparse piano backing and evocative sound, there is an undeniable sense of inner turmoil and torment that radiates throughout Callan’s fourth single release – his delivery and deep, rich vocal tone acting as a dark reminder of a true love lost. It’s a palpable feeling, that’s further solidified by the adept and understated ways in which Will conveys the tracks message and meaning, his profound and powerful vocal choices immersed in authentic, raw emotion.

Musically understated and soulfully reflective and introspective, the song ebbs and flows with a deep intensity that builds and grows as the track progresses – its haunting melody and frank, poetic lyrics relatable to anybody who has ever experienced the seemingly never-ending pain caused by a broken heart.

You’re a fool for letting go of something so true, lost a boy that could have been loved by you, hope someday you’re hurting just as much as I do – hate to say it baby, what a waste of you…

“‘Waste Of You’ is a song is about someone who is in a good relationship, but doesn’t appreciate what they have.” Will says of the track. “Some people are always trying to find their perfect match… but who’s perfect, right?”

“In a relationship, you shouldn’t feel bad for your partner’s mistakes. You saw the good in them in the first place, so it’s not your fault if they waste that for themselves. It’s a reminder that although they might not know it yet, they may have just lost the best relationship they‘ll ever have. So sometimes all you can do is stand back and reflect on what actually happened. I hope that people can relate with the emotion that comes across in the song.”

Andy Grammer released his most recent single “Good Example” at the beginning of last month – which features the amazing Dutch DJ R3HAB. This week, we were treated to an acoustic version of this sensational song – now available to stream on Spotify! You can also watch the official lyric video posted on R3HAB’s YouTube.

Watch below:

This collaboration is proof that opposites attract. Whilst R3HAB focusses his attention on electronic music, Andy Grammer is famously known for his acoustic, country vibes. However, when the two joined forces, they were able to create an electrifying masterpiece.

“Good Example” demonstrates the conflicting situation of a parent being away from their child for a long period. The original version is ridiculously catchy. R3HAB did a tremendous job of lightening up a tough topic. Although, the acoustic version – whilst it still has R3HABs signature bounce to it – allows Andy Grammer’s widely known guitar melodies to highlight the emotional lyrics.

The acoustic version – with Andy’s sweet vocals and perfect musicianship – lures the listener in as soon as the first note is played. From then onwards, the track is sure to tug on some heartstrings. So be sure to have some tissues at the ready!

Despite it being a tad emotional, both versions do a fantastic job of keeping the listener’s spirits lifted! This is the perfect track to listen to on a warm summer day. So, get out into the garden, crack open a bottle of wine, and show your neighbours what impeccable music taste you have by blasting “Good Example.”

The original and acoustic version is now available to stream on all major streaming platforms. Make sure you let Andy Grammer know what you think via his Twitter and Instagram!

LANY are back with their brand new single ‘good guys’, the first track to be taken from their forthcoming third studio album Mama’s Boy.

Returning to their roots in terms of sound, ‘good guys’ follows on from collaborations with Julia Michaels and Lauv however, is the band’s first piece of new music as lead artists since the release of their 2018 album Malibu Nights. The track also comes accompanied by a hazy visual filmed in the countryside.

Speaking about the meaning behind the song, frontman Paul Klein said: “As soon as you say ‘I love spending time with you’ to someone, they figure something out and they’re not interested anymore. It’s like a challenge. You accomplish the task of getting someone to like you and they move on.”

Watch the music video for ‘good guys’ below.

LANY’s new album Mama’s Boy will be released via Polydor Records later this year. The band spent two weeks in a studio outside of Nashville working on the album will songwriters including Dan + Shay’s Dan Smyers, Shane McAnally, Sasha Sloan and King Henry. Work on the record continued and was completed in LA, with LANY collaborating with the likes of Adele co-writer Dan Wilson.

During the time spent in Nashville, Paul, who is an Oklahoma native but lives in LA, tried to put into works the “cognitive dissonance between the LA persona he’d adopted over the band’s rise and his Great Plains heritage.” Thematically, Mama’s Boy is set to be a “sweeping tribute to home, heritage and Americana filled with songs that highlight what’s ‘symbolic of being an American kid‘ today.”

You can watch an album trailer for Mama’s Boy below.

‘good guys’ is available to download and stream now.

After releasing a string of well-received singles and EPs, Scottish singer-songwriter Callum Beattie today releases his highly-anticipated debut album People Like Us.

The 15-track record is a cohesive body of work which offers a detailed look at Callum’s tumultuous journey through life so far. Wearing his heart on his sleeve, this album is driven by the personal experiences which have shaped him into the person he is today.

Opening with the rip-roaring (no pun intended) ‘Mouth of a Tiger’, the track sets a feel-good pace for the record and instantly captivates the listener. Armed with an infectious hook, the track builds towards a change of pace which exquisitely leads into the next song, Callum’s debut single ‘We Are Stars’. Still as magical three years on from its release, ‘We Are Stars’ remains the perfect embodiment of Callum’s artistry as he expertly combines poignant lyrics with a gentle melody and soaring vocals.

Callum’s vocals continue to be the focus on the guitar-led ‘Bonfires’ especially during the anthemic chorus, whilst ‘Nothing Hurts Like You’ shifts towards a more soulful approach, with the singer-songwriter opening up about the heartache he experienced when his decade-long relationship with his hometown girlfriend came to an end.

‘Easter Road’ delves into Callum’s upbringing as he pays homage to the gritty, working-class Edinburgh he grew up in. Laced with nostalgia, the lyrics paint a realistic picture of his childhood and the singer-songwriter enlightens us that no matter where he ends up, “there’s something, keeps pullin’ me back, it’s in my blood stream, this is who I am”.

The tempo picks up on ‘Man Behind The Sun’, a pop-rock anthem which wouldn’t sound out of place on a James Morrison or George Ezra album. Armed with a breezy chorus, this track was made for playing at full volume during long car journeys with the windows wound down.

‘Some Heroes Don’t Wear Capes’ is one of the album’s standout offerings and sees Callum at his rawest. An emotional tribute to his dad who brought him up on his own for some years of his childhood, the production takes a back seat on ‘Some Heroes Don’t Wear Capes’ as Callum’s emotional lyrics and haunting vocal delivery take centre stage. Callum truly excels on this deeply personal offering, and whilst the song relates to Callum’s relationship with his dad, there’s no doubt that ‘Some Heroes Don’t Wear Capes’ will resonate with many people in their own different ways during the current climate.

Because some superheroes won’t ever fly away
They keep it all together even when they’ve made mistakes
They’re just ordinary people fighting all their demons away
‘Cause some heroes don’t wear capes

‘Some Heroes Don’t Wear Capes’ – Callum Beattie

The album continues with ‘Daddy’s Eyes’, an upbeat folk-inspired offering which leads into the melancholic ‘Therapy’, detailing a time when Callum was falling for his therapist. Whilst Callum is great at expressing his emotions through music, ‘Talk About Love’ sees the songwriter open up about his own insecurities when it comes to letting his guard down with potential partners on the romantic front.

Caution is thrown to the wind however, during the album’s Radio 2 playlisted bop ‘Play’, which was inspired by a time when Callum asked a girl on a romantic trip but got ghosted. Whilst the story might not have had a happy ending, it did result in this danceable and care-free offering which is one of the highlights of the album when it comes to uptempo tracks.

‘Salamander Street’, in contrast, is a dark and emotive track which undoubtedly plays to Callum’s strengths as an artist. Laced with stirring strings, the song once again pays homage to his Scottish roots and allows his raw lyricism to shine through. In the same vein, ‘Ghosts In The Dark’ captivates with powerful lyrics about the effects of loneliness. Supported by Callum’s effortlessly warm vocals, it’s a track which will no doubt impact on many.

Callum revealed that his album title was inspired by a conversation he had with his brother. When he asked what he was going to do with his life, Callum expressed his desire to write songs and play to thousands of people one day, however, his brother replied “‘Callum, things like that don’t happen to people like us“. The album’s title track gives Callum the opportunity to prove exactly why he is destined to fulfil his dreams. Accompanied solely by an acoustic guitar, the stripped back production once again highlights Callum’s heartfelt lyrics and charming vocals. Whilst Callum sings that “no one ever kicks up a fuss for people like us”, this song, and the album in its entirety, perfectly showcases why Callum Beattie should be the name on everyone’s lips.

The album is completed by the short and sweet ‘Secrets’, which plays heavily on the artist’s distinct Scottish accent. By this point, Callum feels like an old friend to the listener and this track perfectly rounds off the album with a warm embrace.

People Like Us is an impressive debut album which is deep-rooted in emotion. Offering every inch of his soul on both uplifting radio-ready pop records and raw, heartfelt ballads, Callum is without doubt a versatile and exciting artist with a stunning future ahead of him.

People Like Us is available to download and stream now.

Just when we were recovering from the “Happiness Continues” documentary, the Jonas Brothers go and drop two new songs. “X” featuring Karol G and “Five More Minutes” were released on Friday, May 15th.

“X” was featured in the end credits for “Happiness Continues” and fans immediately started to tweet the band asking when the song would be released. Finally, the brothers announced that XV was dropping on May 15th.

You will definitely be dancing to “X.” It is their second Latin tune after they released “Runaway” featuring Daddy Yankee, Natti Natasha, and Sebastian Yatra last year.

“X” talks about kissing like your ex is in the room and meeting someone in a club and feeling that connection. It will definitely get stuck in your head.

On the other end of the spectrum, “Five More Minutes” is a slow love ballad that will most likely be played at weddings.

The song was also featured in “Happiness Continues” but fans first heard a brief snippet of it during the band’s 2020 Grammy performance.

“Five More Minutes” is about loving someone so much that you just need five more minutes with them even though you know they have to go. It is a truly beautiful song and really showcases their vocals.

The group will perform ‘X’ with Karol G for the first time on Lebron James’ upcoming primetime special Graduate Together: America Honors The Class Of 2020 on Saturday May 16. The show airs on ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC at 8PM PT/ET and 7PM MT/CT.

A few days later, they will also be performing on NBC’s The Voice finale on Tuesday May 19. Nick is currently one of the coaches on the show, alongside John Legend, Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton.

Releasing these two starkly different songs proves that the Jonas Brothers are capable of anything and can sing different genres.

When the band announced the two new songs, they introduced them as XV. Now, even though they were referencing the titles, it could also be a nod to their 15th year as a band, as XV is 15 in roman numerals.

Earlier in the year, the Jonas Brothers also released “What A Man Gotta Do” along with a music video that re-enacted popular romance films.

Kevin Jonas talked with Insider about the importance of releasing music during this time. “I hope people know that the reason we’re releasing music now is because we want them to have new music in their lives. We want them to be able to enjoy music. And that’s something that can bring a lot of people together and it could be positive.”

The brothers have mentioned that they have enough songs to release another album, but no word yet on when that will be released.

Katycats! A new Katy Perry era is officially upon us! Today, (Friday May 15th), the singer has released “Daisies,” the lead single from her highly anticipated fifth studio album.

About the song, Perry explained in an Instagram post that she wrote it a few months ago. “Daisies” is about a ‘call to remain true to the course you’ve set for yourself, regardless of what other may think.’

She added that this song has taken on a new meaning, especially now, in the midst of this pandemic.

Alongside the song, Perry released a beautiful music video where she can be seen standing in her backyard in daisies wearing a beautiful white dress. She is finally wearing white and getting it right.

The “Never Worn White” singer showed off her growing baby bump and trekked through rocks and waterfalls. She mentioned that they had other plans for the video but had to pivot a bit due to the circumstances.

“Daisies” sort of resembles the tune and feelings of her song “Uncondtionally.” It is a complete 180 from her Witness era which talked about politics, the hurt in the world, and the lows, while this era seems to be all about love, dreams, and peace.

Perry also announced she would be crashing fans’ Zoom Watch parties, so she could watch with them and see their reactions.

The song was rumored to have featured Taylor Swift after she posted cryptic social media posts, but it did not happen this time. Hopefully, there will be a Katy/Taylor collaboration in the near future because we really need it.

Her album is rumored to be released on August 14th via Capitol Records. She is certainly going to have a jam packed Summer.

Perry will perform “Daisies” for the first time this Sunday on American Idol. Be sure to tune in!

We are so excited that Katy Perry is back and inspiring us to follow our dreams. This new era is going to be amazing.

This song will definitely make you “Feel Alive”!

What happens when two huge forces collide? Magic. And lots of dancing in the progress! Don’t believe it just yet? Dutch DJ R3HAB is here to convince you as he has teamed up with NJ-based alt-pop trio A R I Z O N A for his latest song, titled “Feel Alive”.

The track is released as a part of the movie soundtrack for the just-released “Scoob!”, a new animated film based on the Scooby-Doo franchise.

“Feel Alive” comes packed with the best of both musical worlds, so to say. R3HAB puts hits skills on display with the groovy and uplifting production while A R I Z O N A give us all the right feels with their angelic vocals and lyricism.

“Feel Alive” fluently blends both artists’ musical background without overshadowing each other and creates one of those tracks that immediately get stuck in your head and hit you right in the heart. It’s a little bit nostalgic yet hopeful, dance-able and oh-so-uplifting.

“Dance with me so I can feel alive” (as A R I Z O N A sing) and listen to the track right here:

“Feel Alive” was written by

“Feel Alive” is taken from the “Scoob! The Album” movie soundtrack, which is available in its entirety to stream and download starting today. Other highlights on the record include – but are not limited to – new tracks by Galantis, Rico Nasty and Ava Max. The movie also finds its digital release via on-demand rental starting today.

America’s new sweetheart Taylor Castro has announced her first ever European, Asian and Australasia World Virtual Tour, hosted by Live Nation. In an effort to reach fans during a time of social distancing while still giving audiences a personalised experience, Taylor Castro is launching an orchestrated live streamed world tour that will virtually reach various cities on different dates across Europe, Asia and Australasia from May 21st-23rd.

Castro will perform songs from her repertoire including current single ‘Abyss’ and, the title track to her forthcoming album ‘Girl Afraid’ which will be available for live viewing on Live Nation’s recently launched Live From Home platform as well as hosted across Live Nation’s regional social media channels (see dates and links below). Viewing will also be on Castro’s YouTube channel post live stream.

Speaking about her new venture, Taylor said: “My first Live Nation World Virtual Tour is beyond exciting. Getting to perform these songs to a global audience is a dream come true and I’m so grateful for the once in a lifetime opportunity I’ve been given thanks to the incredible and kind John Giddings and the wonderful people at Live Nation. I hope everyone from every corner of the globe can “come” watch what I hope is a first of many innovative performances!”

Her representative John Giddings added: “I’m really excited to take on representation for Taylor, and help to help develop her career worldwide. This Live Nation opportunity is a fantastic starting point  to reach a Global audience. She is a very special new discovery and I think we’ll be seeing a lot more of her in the near future.”

If you know Taylor Castro, you already know that she composes and writes all her own music, lifting lyrics from what must surely be the pages of her diary. She has already made a name for herself in lyric-focused music circles with her previous release – ‘Girl, Afraid’.  The track is a deeply personal offering about the singer-songwriter’s struggles with OCD. Castro has now returned with a track about struggling to understand someone who remains a mystery.

A more upbeat release than ‘Girl, Afraid’, ‘Abyss’ makes use of summer-y synths and finger clicking beats, building towards a chorus which breaks like an ocean wave, blending euphoric instrumentation with Castro’s startlingly perceptive lyrical content. In the song, Castro makes use of mythologically-inspired lyrics, comparing the boy in question to Zeus’ son, before remarking that “when you frown / You set fire to kingdoms,” 

Poetic lyricism such as this is one sure fire way Taylor Castro sets herself apart from the oversaturated market of pop music. The instrumentation indicates Castro as someone with a keen eye on the trends of the music industry, with her outstanding lyrics tucked away in a package disguised as the hit of the summer.

Taylor Castro is a talent caught right at the beginning of her journey, and anyone lucky enough to catch her live on her world virtual tour are fortunate to share it with her.

Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, producer, and multi instrumentalist, Seth Glier is known for his stunning and sincere music, exuding a deep, emotive soul that entrances listeners from the get go. Entitled “Til Further Notice”, his new powerfully poignant tune highlights a simple yet mesmerizing melody as the perfect canvas for his delicate, heart-warming vocals. 

The accompanying live video displays a striking minimalism with just him behind a piano. Glier wrote the track after hearing the devastating news of John Prine’s death, only a few weeks ago. We all can connect to his profound message of finding strength within these difficult and unfamiliar times. 

Glier shares, “We’ve heard the words ‘Til Further Notice’ a lot in the past few weeks. They’ve become a signal of prolonged uncertainty and a mantra as we shift to a new rhythm in our daily lives. Never have I felt a time where we are all collectively so emotionally exposed to this feeling of uncertainty. I believe that uncertainty is the place where hope lives and crawls out of from time to time.” 

All the proceeds from “Til Further Notice” will benefit the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, an organization that provides financial support for musicians and music industry workers who are struggling during this crisis. Seth Glier is currently live streaming his “Pandemic Parties” each week to connect with new listeners and his long term fans. 

Glier’s music soars with intense atmospheres and insightful lyricism. Taking inspiration from traditional roots music while also experimenting with a variety of eclectic arrangements, he has developed his own sonically unique sound.  The songwriter has performed alongside many prominent players such as Ani DiFranco and James Taylor and has even completed a U.S. State Department sponsored tour, captivating audiences across the globe. 

Check out Seth Glier’s new visuals for “Til Further Notice” now and keep-up-to-date with him on his Instagram.

The current global pandemic has had a huge impact on people of all walks of life in many ways. When it comes to the entertainment industry, we’ve seen theatres shutting their doors, concerts around the world being postponed and festivals being cancelled.

However, in amidst the darkness, our favourite celebrities have been doing their best to shine a light into the world during this difficult time. From virtual performances to at home music videos, it seems that lockdown hasn’t stopped artists from getting creative and entertaining their fans in the way they know best.

We’ve rounded up five ways our favourite celebs have managed to raise spirits and keep us entertained during lockdown so far.

At home performances

Turning their homes into stages, the world has been treated to countless virtual performances over the past few months. Many of them have been made possible thanks to Global Citizen, who teamed up with the World Health Organisation to bring everyone together at home with a series of special concerts from our favourite artists including everyone from Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello to OneRepublic.

They also partnered with Lady Gaga to curate the One World: Together at Home live event. The eight-hour stream included performances from artists such as Billie Eilish, Adam Lambert, Sir Elton John and more, raising an incredible $ 127 million which has been split between the WHO’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund and other crisis support charities.

TV talk shows have also had to go virtual, and whilst studio performances have been a no go, pop stars have still been delivering world class performances over video call. Dua Lipa performed her latest single ‘Break My Heart’ for the at home edition of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon and went all out with dancers and special effects.

Homemade music videos

Due to lockdown conditions, many official music video shoots have had to be cancelled. However, that hasn’t stopped some of our favourite artists from thinking outside of the box and creating visuals in the comfort of their homes.

Little Mix had to abandon their official shoot for the ‘Break Up Song’ visual however, managed to transform their original concept into a spectacular part-animation offering. With half of the visual featuring felt versions of the girls, the other half saw Jade, Jesy, Leigh-Anne and Perrie glammed up in 80s outfits, performing the infectious song from their homes. It might not have been what the girls originally had planned but it’s certainly iconic.

5 Seconds of Summer went out of their way to ensure their fans had a music video for their latest single ‘Wildflower’. Shot entirely on green screen through a meticulously arranged process that involved transporting the disinfected green screen to each band member’s doorway in order to film their individual parts, the ‘Wildflower’ visual was one of the first homemade lockdown videos to grace the internet and we’re still obsessed with its nostalgic 90s vibe.

For her ‘Malibu’ video, pop queen Kim Petras called upon some of her famous pals to bring the song’s tropical vibe to life. Starring the likes of Demi Lovato, Paris Hilton, Charli XCX, Jessie J, Todrick Hall, Jonathan Van Ness, Madelaine Petsch, and Aly & AJ, this homemade video truly succeeds in bringing the party during this unprecedented time.

Theatrical delights

With the West End and Broadway shut for the first time in years, many theatre lovers have been craving their fix particularly when it comes to musicals. Whilst some musicals and plays have been made available to watch online, some of the best theatrical content during lockdown has come from the past and present casts of our most loved shows.

Reimagining the story of Romeo and Juliet for a modern audience, &Juliet questions what would have happened to Juliet had she survived Shakespeare’s tragedy. Soundtracked by some of pop legend Max Martin’s biggest hits from the past 30 years, the musical includes tracks by the Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Demi Lovato and more. During lockdown, the entire cast of &Juliet got together to record a special performance of ‘I Want It That Way’ from their respective homes.

Six the musical is based on the six wives of Henry VIII and rightfully puts them in the spotlight as individual Queens who hilariously battle it out to see who lived the most difficult life at the hands of old Henry. The West End’s former super swing Grace Mouat and the current Catherine Parr, Danielle Steers, brought together past and present cast members from Six all over the world for this incredible performance of ‘Ex Wives’ and ‘Six’. This includes cast members from the original production and cast recording, the West End, UK tour, Broadway, Australia, as well as the Norwegian Bliss and Breakaway cruises.

Wicked is one of the most adored musicals around the world and just when we thought we couldn’t love it any more, this incredible video comes to light. It features 23 actresses who have played Elphaba or Glinda in the beloved musical singing ‘For Good’, including Kerry Ellis, Sophie Evans, Alice Fearn, Emma Hatton, Natalie McQueen, Laura Pick, and Rachel Tucker, as well as Louise Dearman who famously became the first actress to play both roles in the musical.

Comedy sketches

There have been plenty of laughs during lockdown too, particularly during BBC’s The Big Night In. The event was full of comedy sketches including Little Britain, Miranda, and The Vicar of Dibley, however, the most memorable sketch came courtesy of Catherine Tate and David Tennant.

Whilst many love Catherine and David from their Doctor Who days, you might remember that David once played the teacher alongside Catherine’s Lauren Cooper in a The Catherine Tate Show sketch. Fast forward to 2020 and the two reunited for a sketch where Lauren tries to get her teacher to do a TikTok with her. The whole sketch is packed with hilarious references, and spoiler alert: the end result is nothing short of phenomenal.

Over on Channel 4, the Stath Lets Flats crew have also joined in on the fun. The TV show follows incompetent lettings agent Stath who works for the family business Michael and Eagle, and six of the cast members have released a lockdown skit of the programme which shows what it’s like to be an estate agent during this time. If you’re a fan of the show then you’ll love this special video call edition.

Unexpected collaborations

Without doubt one of the best things to come out of this lockdown period has been the array of unexpected collaborations. Who can forget the moment that McFly’s Tom Fletcher and Danny Jones dropped this incredible rendition of ‘Shine a Light’ featuring Niall Horan, Olly Murs and James Arthur?!

Radio 1 managed to get a whole host of artists including Dua Lipa, Anne-Marie, Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora, 5 Seconds of Summer, and Mabel, together to record a version of the Foo Fighters’ ‘Times Like These’. The charity single, which went to number one in the UK, was released in aid of BBC Children in Need and Comic Relief to provide essential support to vulnerable people who are significantly impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

Finally, we can’t forget Gary Barlow and his sensational Crooner Sessions. Over the past few weeks, Gary has been delving deep into his huge contact book and teaming up with a number of famous faces to deliver virtual collaborations. From his band mates Howard Donald and Mark Owen, and former band mate Robbie Williams, to artists including JLS, Beverley Knight, Cliff Richard, Shane Filan, JC Chasez, Niall Horan, Brian May, Katherine Jenkins, Olly Murs, and more, Gary has brightened up our lives no end with his Crooner Sessions.

US country music sensation Carly Pearce has teamed up a selection of Nashville’s finest session musicians to create a poignant music video for her global hit ‘It Won’t Always Be Like This’.

The clip sees the performers singing and playing live from their respective homes where they are each isolating at this time due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic. This particular song has been chosen as it has been adopted by many front-line workers across the world as their song during this extremely tough time as it is a reminder that nothing lasts forever.

It is a powerful and moving video that highlights the incredible work being done by health workers during this health crisis and acts as a beautiful marker that this pandemic will eventually pass.

Speaking about the performance and its new meaning, Carly Pearce says: “When I wrote this song, I knew that it was going to be a special one, but little did I know all of the ways it was to unveil its meaning even deeper. A beautiful thing for me is seeing how we ALL can relate in some way right now. My band and I created a special video to hopefully give people peace and comfort through this very uncertain time. I hope everyone holds onto their faith and their loved ones a little tighter. Remember, it won’t always be like this.”

We have more music from Karmen this year, this time a single titled “Bam Bam” and it’s just as addicting as her previous hits. This follows up her previous track release “Punjabi”.

Karmen, real name Carmen Simionescu, daughter of well-known Romanian singer and actor Adrian Minune, has been going strong in her home country of Romania ever since she signed with Global Records who has INNA, Antonia, Carla’s Dreams, Delia, Irina Rimes, and The Motans, on its roster. Her 2018 track, “Lock My Hips“, became a total hit in Romania, ranking in the Top 5 of Romania’s Radio Airplay Chart and on Romania’s Top Airplay 100, peaking at number two, and hit number one on the Romanian TV Airplay Chart for two weeks. Her other singles include her addictive debut “You Got It”, follow-up “Minte-Ma”, her collaboration with Achi “Viciul Meu”, the unforgettable track “Shake It“, and last year’s single “Play Me“. This year has seen her release “Punjabi” and now “Bam Bam” under the Atom label.

According to Spotify, the song has been written by Petre Octavian Ioachim, Vlad Lucan, and Yasmeen Semaan, whilst it has been produced by Vlad Lucan. As for the music video, it has been filmed using a small team by BMABID, with Raluca Netca acting as director, Alex Chitu acting as director of photography, and Daria Georgescu handling the styling.

Watch Karmen’s Music Video For “Bam Bam” Here:

The song is an upbeat number but with Karmen’s signature sound all over it, with Eastern European melodies and vibes. As usual, her vocals are on-point throughout and it’s clear she has connected with the song and enjoys singing it. The lyrics touch upon being in a relationship with a guy who makes her feel alone and isn’t usually around and always out and away from her. The song is highly relatable to many people right now as the COVID-19 pandemic has people in quarantine, on lockdown, and away from the people they love.

The music video takes inspiration from the lyrics giving us a pure performance visual which sees Karmen on her own, alone, outside what could be her own home. We see her on top of a roof, sitting on a chair, lying down on the grass, and floating in a pool. Her fashion is on-point throughout too, we especially love her yellow, mustard-coloured, suit jacket and trousers, as well as the fiery-red dress she wears in the swimming pool.

“Bam Bam” is available to download and stream right now, via Atom.

Despite debuting only last year with ‘Wapo Traketero’, Nicki Nicole already watches over an empire of 3.5 million online followers who have wised up quickly to the Argentine’s flair.

Following up 2019’s debut record Recuerdos with single ‘Colocao’, Nicki Nicole calls listeners to “chill with a good buzz… like Drake” on the Hispanic flick. A confident celebration of her journey to the top, ‘Colocao’ lands today with a playful music video to boot, filmed whilst in quarantine in Argentina.

At just 19-year-old, the singer has wasted no time in cementing her name as one to watch. Earlier this year, Nicole took to the e-stage at this year’s FADER Digital Fort with ‘Wapo Traketero’, an online event to raise money for the current COVID-19 crisis.

The songstress has also picked up awards for Radar Trap in Spanish Artist and Most-Streamed Female Artist in Gaming Consoles at the inaugural Spotify Awards earlier this year – beating Billie Eilish and Ariana Grande in the process.

Known for their kicking choruses and larger than life frontwoman, you’d think KITTEN would be a band not cut out for life in quarantine. However, as latest glitching flick ‘My House’ goes to show, that’s far from the case. Chloe Chaidez chats to CelebMix about the track and staying creative at home, as well as all things Nasty Cherry.

“It’s been a rollercoaster ride,” Chloe Chaidez ponders on the current global situation, fresh from her latest Zoom meeting. “It’s been an emotional rollercoaster for everybody, I know I’m not alone in how I feel.”

Based in L.A. and moving in circles of exciting artists famed for their collaborative attitudes, such as Dorian Electra and Chaidez’s long-time friend Charli XCX, working in confined spaces isn’t something the songwriter is all too used to.”I’m a very social person. People always like to say how introverted they are but, you know what bitch,” she laughs, “I’m an extrovert and I know that about myself.”

When not writing music, the frontwoman admits to turning to cooking as a means of keeping busy. “I could open a restaurant,” she jokes. “I’m talking gourmet stuff… this week alone I made vegetarian meatballs which were really delicious. Mushroom, parsley, oregano, eggplant…”

If not cheffing, Chaidez has been cooking up tracks in her own studio. Dropping last week, ‘My House’ is an infectious take on the situation, mixing a nursery rhyme feel with big pop melodies.

“The track flowed very easily, it was very honest. It definitely has a childlike quality to it which was just naturally expressed. It was a pretty direct reflection of how I was feeling.”

Asked if being creative at the moment has been at all difficult at times, Chaidez nods to missing out on the usual music experiences which inspire her:

“Whether it’s relationships, someone who treated you like a dick, falling in love… those experiences I’ve really missed to inspire writing. You do get really beautiful moments with the people you are quarantined with that you might not have otherwise too.”

Chloe nods to unique moments like those in ‘My House’. The single is a new sonic direction from KITTEN, a band that have done it all since first releasing music all the way back in 2010. Most recently, the end of last year brought the Goodbye Honeymoon Phase EP, an acclaimed project which Chaidez had previously labelled “Avril Lavigne meets PC Music”.

“I’m very proud of the EP. Some of those songs were very old, some were newer. I love it so much. I’ll still listen to some of those songs now, which I never do with releases. The whole band is really proud of it.”

An artist who thrives on being busy, Chaidez is also one of four Nasty Cherry members – the female-fronted band formed by Charli XCX and the name behind huge pop bangers like ‘Live Forever’ and ‘Music With Your Dad’.

“I think that even when it’s difficult [juggling two bands], I love it”, Chloe admits. “There’s been a couple moments in this quarantine when I’m doing both in one day and I feel like I’m in my zone, in a hectic, chaotic but fun space.”

Recent headline shows for Nasty Cherry saw raucous U.K. pop fans fill small venues as they continue their promising first steps towards prominence. “There’s nothing like the feeling you get after playing a show,” Chaidez says whilst fondly thinking back before COVID-19. “You’re sweating and you talk to people in the audience. I’ve made so many lifelong friends at shows – it’s something that connects you, it’s really important.”

In the meantime, the singer has kept busy playing online sets and attending virtual events such as Club Quarantine which she praises as “very forward-thinking”. “It’s definitely a way to keep the community strong and it feels nice to still be connected to a movement.”

An artist who thrives on stage, whether it be with KITTEN or Nasty Cherry, Chloe Chaidez can’t wait to be back gigging again, although admits it could be a long way off yet. In the meantime, she’ll see this all blow over by cooking up big quarantine hits and tasty veggie dishes.

‘My House’ is streaming now.

The winner of the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest, Duncan Laurence has released his very first EP “Worlds On Fire” today, with his ballad “Arcade”, the explosive “Love Don’t Hate It” and more beautiful songs on it.

A small town boy from a big arcade

– says the lyrics

Despite growing up in a town where music had no part in the regular school system, Duncan knew since he was very young that he wanted to be a musician, and he proved it to the whole world last year that he was born to be a singer.

In January 2019, Dutch broadcaster AVROTROS internally selected the young man to represent the Netherlands at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv, Israel with his song “Arcade”, and he actually won with 492 points.

His song “Arcade” has since appeared on the charts, and his fans have been eagerly looking forward to his first album. The good news is, that you don’t have to wait any longer if you love the Dutch talent’s music. All lyrics to “Worlds On Fire” were written by Duncan Laurence himself along with other successful songwriters.

“Arcade” told the story of a broken heart, but now we know that Duncan is ready to fight for love – the songs on his brand new EP are all about this, with choruses that will literally blow up the stage. About the first song, well, all we can say is that it’s just beautiful!

In fact, Wasabi has now written for some of the most popular acts in the music industry and continues to impress his fans with original music released on several platforms. His most recent single, “LEMONS,” features kennedi and is the type of addictive pop track you won’t be able to stop listening to after you give it a listen. In an exclusive interview with CelebMix, Shawn Wasabi opens up about his latest release, Youtube and more.

What can you tell us about your new single “LEMONS” and its overall message?

Shawn Wasabi: Long story short, we wrote the whole song from start to finish while kennedi was having an emotional breakdown. The other co-writer, Annika, and I helped kennedi flesh out the whole thing with our creative therapist thinking caps on. I started the beat with the “dun dun dun dun DUN” you hear and it really makes me feel like I’m the host of a game show from the late 80s/early 90s. I was having a great day that morning, and that was just the music I was hearing in my head. I’m gonna leave the lyrics up to interpretation. And here’s kennedi chiming in too — “LEMONS is about my immediate reaction to a crush (one of many, I have lots) who got engaged. The line, ‘I just think she’s not very nice and you can do better’ was way too many syllables and not as catchy.” 

You worked with kennedi on that track! How did that collaboration come about? 

kennedi is one of my best friends and favorite collaborators. I met her through our songwriting relationship with Justin Tranter. We both have this chaotic creative energy, but she has reality TV show level creative energy. She’s the type to call everyone “bro” and also turn into a different person every week. But [she] still has a beautiful heart of gold.

How does writing and performing your own music connect or differ from the Midi videos you create on Youtube?

Both are super fun for me, but I have to switch brains for either! I do too many things sometimes. The Midi videos take a lot of my programming and technical mind, mixed in with visual directing eye and repetitive muscle motion. Writing, composing and producing my own music feels very personal, and that’s where my deepest expression really sits.

Speaking of Youtube, you have reached massive success on that platform! Over 100 million streams is beyond impressive. Why did you start creating videos originally?

Thank you! I’m super grateful and glad people appreciate the content I put out on there. I’ve had different content on my YouTube throughout the ages. No one remembers when I posted videos of me playing piano back in high school but everyone knows MARBLE SODA and BURNT RICE and the hits. I’m happy and appreciative [that] it took off! It’s afforded me so many creative opportunities and avenues. I was just having fun making art in the way that felt most creatively natural and personal to me, and I still am. I’m very lucky.

You have written for artists like Jason Derulo. What can you tell us about songwriting for such a major act? Is there anything you have learned or taken away from it thus far? 

I’ve worked with so many cool pop artists and it’s always intimidating but fun! I haven’t seen a lot of songs come out that I’ve worked on yet with some people, but I know they’re very particular about what they release. I get that I’m the type of producer who pop artists bring in when they’re like “we need something weird”…but then they’re like “wait that’s too weird.” I wanna be like Max Martin someday if he was Filipino. I’ve been doing a bunch of really fun songs with Jason Derulo recently, and he knows how to pour his heart out in front of the mic.

Who would you like to collaborate with for either a duet or to song-write with in the future?

Too many to list! Off the top of my head…Skrillex, Lil Nas X, beebadoobee, Hayley Kiyoko, mxmtoon, Joji, Rich Brian, keshi, Anamanaguchi, Porter Robinson, Madeon and Cashmere Cat.

What can fans look forward to in terms of the rest of 2020?

Well, I am not touring anytime soon! However, my album MANGOTALE is dropping! It’s my first full-length project and I’m incredibly excited for people to listen to it! It’s the album I’ve been wanting to put out my whole life. Two of the songs, HALO HALO and MEDICINE were written during quarantine. I produced most of the whole thing on my laptop in my house. I’ve changed and developed and grown so much (my understanding of the world and myself and personality being disassembled and assembled back together and my friends and the people I meet and am surrounded by and my different mentors) from 2015 til now in 2020, and I feel like this project perfectly expresses that shift while also channeling the energy and emotion I had at those different parts in my life.

MANGOTALE also flexes a lot of my musical range between collaborative pop energy production and weird knob-twiddling audio manipulation sound design and also being a former musical prodigy kid that strayed too far early on off the path. It’s also Asian Pacific Heritage Month this month. Big shout out to all my Asians and Filipinos out there!

We all are in need of new music during this time and Danny Dearden sure is stepping up with is constant releases, and here is another new one from this rising British singer-songwriter, this time he’s collaborated with henrikz on the song “Arcade”. This follows up henrikz’s single “I Don’t Want” and Danny Dearden’s single “Can’t Stop Me Now“.

DJ and producer Henrik Kristiansen, better known as henrikz, hails from Aarhus, Denmark. The young producer has been building his fanbase for a couple of years. He’s mostly known for his collaboration with Labi Ramaj, titled “One More Night” which has just under 500,000 Spotify streams. We reckon we’ll hear more from him in the coming years and we believe this song will rise and become his most-streamed single to-date.

As for CelebMix favourite Danny Dearden, he is a singer-songwriter, who has been building his career over the last few years, especially making his name known on the Michael Calfan tracks “Could Be You” and “It’s Wrong” which both have over 2 million Spotify streams. His collaboration with Erlandsson “Different Kind Of Love” is his third most-streamed single with over 1 million Spotify streams. He’s got plenty of more new music on the way and we’re excited to see where his career takes him.

According to Spotify, Danny Dearden self-penned this track, whilst Henrik Kristiansen and Cameron Warren produced it. The song is an upbeat number with Danny Dearden’s vocals coming through strong. He launches into his falsetto for the chorus, which is hyped-up and is unforgettable – be prepared to be singing this later as it gets stuck in your head. The lyrics are beautifully crafted together whilst also painting a visionary storyline about being young and carefree and spending time together amongst arcades near the beach – we’ve all got days like that we won’t ever forget, which makes this song so relatable.

Stream henrikz & Danny Dearden’s New Single “Arcade” Here:

“Arcade” is available to download and stream right now via TGR Music Group, distributed by Sony Music Entertainment Sweden.

As the resilience coach for many top leaders at Fortune 500 companies as well as several famous start-up companies, Dr. Taryn Stejskal is considered to be a secret weapon of sorts. She focuses on creating truth and making safe spaces that promote resilient leadership and employee productivity. Stejskal is a master at working with companies so they can analyze their current productivity and boost their brand by focusing on resilient management, which is beneficial to both managers and employees. 

Dr. Stejskal has a proven track record of education and experience, which explains why she’s become so influential and helped so many companies achieve success through resilient leadership. After receiving her doctorate before she turned thirty, Dr. Stejskal initially focused her research on neuropsychology and neuroscience, doing what she could to make this information more available to companies worldwide. Stejskal saw the opportunity to help leaders in organizational settings learn more about resilient leadership so that they could help guide their employees to achieve success. 

Companies like Cigna and Nike have approached Stejskal in the past, because of her reputation as the foremost thought leader and global authority on resilience. She was recognized as a Marshall Goldsmith Top 100 Coach around the world. Additionally, Stejskal has also led worldwide leadership and development organizations for Fortune 500 companies, including Cigna and Nike, helping them to develop the best leaders in the world. 

According to Stejskal, practicing resilience in leadership helps to enhance mental health, productivity, and success in the workplace. Stejskal feels that resilience is the missing piece in many entrepreneurs’ development. However, entrepreneurs can still learn to develop resilience in leadership by obtaining practice and education. To Stejskal, resilience helps people address the challenge, change, and complexity and promotes positive growth. 

The true mark of a leader is not about how that leader performs when times are excellent. Instead, leaders are measured by how they show their emotional strength and professionalism when times are challenging. Leaders cannot display resilience unless they have gone through tough times themselves, according to Stejskal. And, the more challenging the challenge is for the leader, the easier it is for them to develop resilience.

We have to commend JoJo, she’s not letting the COVID-19 pandemic stop her plans, and this week saw her drop a music video for “Comeback” which features Tory Lanez and 30 Roc. This is the second at-home music video she has dropped, with the previous music video being for her promotional single “Lonely Hearts“, for her fourth studio album she dropped on the 1 May. and this is so good you wouldn’t even know it was filmed during the pandemic. This follows up JoJo’s album release good to know, Tory Lanez’s feature on OX’s single “Shake”, and 30 Roc’s collaboration album with Lil 1 titled Raw.

The song itself is sexed-up so we’re not surprised to see JoJo looking sexy and sultry throughout the video. It has a constant red filter which hypes up the sex but with a contrast filter of green, every now and again. JoJo is wearing black underwear paired with a see-through robe and is being monitored on security cameras by Tory Lanez. In another scene she is seen wearing a see-through one-piece garment. When Tory Lanez sings his verse, JoJo switches up her fashion by wearing white.

In this entire clip, JoJo exudes sex whilst also giving us additional content such as twerking and removing clothes, and it sure is fire to watch. The music video has been directed by Santiago Salviche.

As social media platforms allow breakthrough artists to build up fanbases of hundreds of thousands quicker than ever, exciting young singers have never been more abundant. CelebMix casts an eye over 12 rising online artists.

From TikTok stars to former talent show contestants and Instagram gurus, these youngsters are making the most of their followings to take their first steps towards exciting music projects. Check out who makes the list…

Payton Moormeier

Having started his journey as a member of TikTok group JrElite, Payton Moormeier now boasts an empire of over 12 million TikTok followers, alongside another 3.9 million on Instagram. In recent months, the 16-year-old has begun to share original music under the alias of payton, revealing to fans that he had been writing since the age of nine.

Dropping ‘Love Letter‘ last month, the star’s well-teased debut single, the singer climbed into online charts and pulled in millions of streams in under a month. To follow the break-up flick, Payton has already previewed future releases online including a track seemingly titled ‘Bad Habits’.

Lewis Blissett

Rocketing into the spotlight at the end of 2018, Lewis Blissett’s big vocals and support from stars such as Ariana Grande saw the singer’s online following break the one-million mark in rapid time.

Since then, Blissett has signed a record deal and put out two tastes of his own material with ‘Sick Thoughts‘ and ‘Killing Butterflies‘. Bubbling alt-pop which sees Grande meet Billie Eilish in sound, the 16-year-old is one of pop’s most exciting voices.

Baby Ariel

One of social media’s most prolific names thanks to becoming the first Musical.ly user to pass 20 million followers, Baby Ariel now has followings of nine million on Instagram and 32 million on TikTok respectively. Most recently, the 19-year-old has appeared in Disney’s Zombies 2.

First releasing music in 2017 with sugary pop track ‘Aww’, it’s last year’s dreamy singles ‘I Heart You’ and ‘wildside’ that have marked Baby Ariel out as a promising unique pop voice for years to come.

Jack Duff

Formerly part of boyband RoadTrip, Jack Duff parted ways with the group at the end of 2019. Three years alongside the band saw a string of EPs and UK tours as the Irishman found his footing in the industry.

Now going solo, the singer has announced the release of his first single which will hit services next week, on May 20th. Titled ‘Bad For Me’, clips teased online hint at a new sound with R&B influences as the singer starts his exciting solo project.

Christian Lalama

TikTok star and singer Christian Lalama is a name you may well recognise. Just under two million followers across platforms and performances alongside the likes of Max & Harvey and Johnny Orlando have marked Lalama as one to watch.

Releasing his first single back in 2018, this year has seen the 16-year-old take his music to the next level. A string of releases including ‘Miss Me’, ‘Knocked Off My Feet’ and latest single ‘Relief’ have seen the online star find a potent confidence in his sound.

Elle Winter

First making waves after appearing on Radio Disney’s Next Big Thing, Elle Winter’s online reach includes over 100,000 followers across Instagram and YouTube, where the 20-year-old has posted covers over recent years.

Now signed to Sony Music, 2020’s Yeah, No EP sees Elle Winter make her first big mark with her own sound. Title track ‘Yeah, No.’ has already pulled in a surplus of one million streams online with big vocals and a big chorus that points to much more to come.

Joshua Bassett

Disney actor who is currently turning heads in the High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, Joshua Bassett‘s list of appearances to date is an impressive one. As well as appearing on screen, the 19-year-old is a singer/songwriter beginning to release his own material.

Starting with ‘Common Sense’ last month, a dreamy self-written and self-produced ballad, Bassett has also shared clips of tracks to his 1.6 million Instagram followers – suggesting many more solo releases still to come!

Donel

Wowing spectators on The Voice 2018, none more so than mentor will.i.am, Donel came off the show and continued to pull in fans with online content. Now with, 200,000 Instagram followers and 100,000 YouTube subscribers, the singer has started to release his own material.

2018’s ‘Bang Like A Drum’ saw tropical afro-beats blended with catchy pop production and 2019’s soaring ‘Planets’ was the 18-year-old’s most exciting work to date. Still sharing original online covers and freestyles, Donel continues to work on more upcoming solo releases.

Michael Ziedel

A new face on the block, Michael Zeidel’s nearly 75,000 Instagram followers have come to the singer on the back off Instagram activity and support from the likes of RoadTrip and Payton Moormeier.

Performing at Social Bash and Winter Live in recent months, the rising star has also posted pop covers on Instagram and YouTube – his rapidly growing fanbase will be hoping for some original material from Ziedel soon.

Jenna Raine

Perhaps best known for being member of girl group L2M who found success on Musical.ly, Jenna Raine is now going it solo having released two EPs last year. Playing live shows as support for the likes of Max & Harvey, the 16-year-old’s ever-growing audience currently includes 165,000 Instagram followers.

Tracks from Nen and Be Like You include fan-favourites ‘You Can Blame Me’ and ‘A Letter To Me’. Singer/songwriter efforts with production moving from stripped-back ballads to country influences to big pop chorus, Raine is an exciting rising talent.

Elliot

Danish artist for fans of Billie Eilish, Isaac Dunbar and Troye Sivan, Elliot is the latest Scandinavian talent to find a breakthrough online.

Signed to Copenhagen Records, Elliot can move from dark pop production on the likes of ‘would you cry if i died’ to airy vocals on latest single ‘drown’. Crisp visuals accompany the singer’s fresh sound, working alongside music video producers such as Shine Thorbøll.

Nicholas Tomillon

Arming himself with a striking lyrical honesty and deep vocals, Nicholas Tomillon’s singles ‘To My Father’ and ‘Marmalade’ have seen viral success on streaming platforms.

First seeing his platform grow as the subject of a series of memes, the singer now posts regular covers of artists such as Billie Eilish and Miley Cyrus on Instagram. Receiving support from the likes of Jessie Reyez, Tomillon has also collaborated with social media star Lohanthony and, most recently, Gavin Hunder on ‘insecurities’.

Fresh from releasing her breakout debut album ‘Hollywood Gypsy‘ back last month, York singer/songwriter Twinnie has shared the official lyric video for the latest single to be lifted off the impressive track-list; ‘Daddy Issues’.

The clip is a colourful animated graphic that portrays the inside of a brain going through issues that make a mark on relationships. Another quality release from the country crossover sensation this once again sets her apart from the current crop of Brit country artists currently on the scene.

Effortlessly weaving together pop, country, and soft rock sounds Twinnie has created a sonic sound that is completely unique to herself and this newest offering leans more into the classic country sound with its beautiful acoustic guitar arrangement making it a contender for “Best British Country Single” of 2020.

‘Daddy Issues’ is relatable, honest, and showcases the strength of vulnerability Twinnie is unafraid to lay bare throughout her musical output. She is an artist who is never afraid to take risks with her lyrical output and sonic sound and this means she always creates something fresh and exciting.

Are you a fan of Twinnie’s lyric video for her latest offering ‘Daddy Issues’? Let us know your thoughts across social media!

Freya Lewis was an ordinary 14-year-old girl who loved music, One Direction (she’s a Harry girl) and Ariana Grande among her top picks. On the 22nd May 2017, she went to see Ariana Grande on her Dangerous Woman tour at Manchester Arena with her best friend Nell Andrews. That night changed her life forever. The horrific devastation caused by a terrorist took the lives of Nell and 21 others and left thousands of others forever physically and mentally scarred.

Now Freya with the help of ghostwriter Amisha Desai has written her story. What Makes Us Stronger, tells the story of the night her life changed, her coming to terms with what happened to her, dealing with her guilt that she was alive and Nell wasn’t.

Image

The Ariana Grande gig she intended that faithful night was the first her parents had allowed her to attend alone, allowing her to take a friend instead, she chose Nell, her best friend who she’d met on the second day of high school and the pair who had instantly clicked. Freya kept the tickets a secret from Nell for five months, acting as if she hadn’t managed to get some like Nell hadn’t when they went on sale. She surprised Nell with the ticket on her birthday.

Freya has lived in Holmes Chapel, Cheshire all her life. In her words “It’s a safe little village, where not much happens.” The biggest claim to fame is it’s where Harry Styles grew up and went to school. So it’s no wonder Freya became a huge fan of his. Harry features a lot in the book, from his song “Sign of the Times” being an anchor for Freya to think of happy thoughts and try to stay awake in the ambulance, to the personal phone call Harry made to her while she was still hospital when Freya had just come round from one of the numerous surgeries and all she could say was I love you down the phone.

She later got to meet Harry in person at a taping he did at Media City in Salford, she attended with her entire family, her dad moaning about having to fork out for the sweater Freya wore which had Harry’s tattoos on it, and Mitch Rowland and Adam Pendergast, members of Harry’s band commenting that it was “cool” and he’d had a “few more” since. Her meeting with Harry was one of the many moving and emotional moments within the book, the photo of Harry kissing her on the cheek, particularly poignant as it was a request from Nell who had once asked, if you ever meet him you must get a photo of him kissing your cheek.

Also, an equally lovely moment were the words spoken to her by Anne Twist, Harry’s Mum who was stood behind her during the taping of the show in which Harry dedicated Sign of the Times to her.

“We’ve got to stick together you and I.”

Anne Twist- What Makes Us Stronger, Freya Lewis, page 221

In 2008 Freya won an NHS Heroes award for all her fundraising work for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. She was invited to the award ceremony by some of her favourite members of the Coronation Street cast including Lucy Fallon, who she has become firm friends with, so much so Lucy is the voice of the audiobook for What Makes Us Stronger.

The NHS Heroes Award was another huge event in Freya’s life. Not only was she presented the award by Harry’s One Direction bandmate Louis Tomlinson, whose song Two of Us had resonated with her, flew back from LA just to present her with the award.

There’s a song by Louis Tomlinson from One Direction called Two of Us. It really spoke to me because the whole song is about living life for the two of us. And that is how I feel about Nell,” Freya says. “I feel like she’s with me now. Everywhere I go and everything I do, she’s there beside me. I’ll just continue taking her everywhere I go with me in life.”

It’s also where she met Amisha Desai, who would help her put her thoughts on paper and enabled her to tell her story.

What Makes Us Stronger isn’t an easy read, despite it being ultimately uplifting, both her Mum and Dad’s accounts of the events of the 22nd May are particularly harrowing but by reading them you come to understand Freya’s journey a lot more. Her Mum would later tell Ariana Grande when she visited Freya in the hospital that the attack was not her fault.

As she turned to leave, Mum was hovering by the bed. She and Ariana looked at each other for a moment, then Mum’s face went serious ‘Don’t worry’, she said softly, ‘it wasn’t your fault.’

What Makes Us Stronger, Freya Lewis, page 58

Her dad selflessly kept the village of Holmes Chapel updated of Freya’s recovery on the school’s blog. With parents like that, her sister Georgia being an absolute tower of strength and Freya’s number one cheerleader while taking her A-Levels it’s very easy to see where Freya’s warm, selfless and determined nature stems from.

It’s a story of resilience, of remarkable strength but ultimately it’s an uplifting and heartwarming tribute and legacy to her best friend, a love letter to the community of Holmes Chapel and a thank you to her friends and family and all those who have helped her in the last few years. It’s a book that has the potential to help so many people come to terms with the feelings they have, and it’s one we think everyone should read as Freya’s outlook on life is one the world could learn a lot from.

ALMA is gearing up to release her debut album “Have U Seen Her?” on May 15th. This full length project follows the success of her popular singles, such as “Bad News Baby” and “Find Me,” which will also be included on the album. After wrapping up the Sunshine Kitty Tour opening up for Tove Lo earlier this year, ALMA has effortlessly continued to expand her international fanbase. Her songwriting with and for other impressive acts, including Miley Cyrus, has allowed her to show off not only her vocal ability, but songwriting skills. In an exclusive interview with CelebMix, ALMA opens up about her debut album, fans and more.

What can you tell us about your debut album “Have U Seen Her?” and some of the songs you included on it?

It’s an album [that] I’m very proud of. I didn’t make any sacrifices and I made it 100% honest and real! It’s my story…from a girl in Finland without any plans in life [and then goes] to where I am now! I’m talking about partying, also the downsides of it, pressure, mental health issues, love, and basically everything I’ve experienced in my life. All the songs are very personal, but my favorites are “LA Money,” “Loser” and “Mama.”

What inspired you to choose that name and title for this project?

I think a lot of people have seen my face somewhere or they have an impression of me, but they still don’t have a clue who I am.

So that’s why it’s called “Have U Seen Her?

It’s a question for everyone, and I want tell you guys my story. I hope people listen carefully.

In terms of the album as a whole, which tracks did you find most difficult to master and record?

“Mama”! First it was something totally different and the production was all over the place, but we got it together. Also, the song called “Nightmare” was hard from the beginning.

During this current global pandemic, what artists or bands have you been listening to? 

Gorillaz, MGMT and Lykke Li. All [of] the old teenage stuff!

What can fans look forward to for the rest of 2020?

Hopefully shows later this year. But I think this whole summer is gonna be me inside my studio and more music! Even though I just released this album, it doesn’t mean that I can’t release more music this year…so that’s gonna be exciting!

“Have U Seen Her?” is out on May 15th.

Breakout country star Mo Pitney has announced details of his forward-facing new album ‘Ain’t Lookin’ Back’, the record will be released August 14th via Curb Records and will be supported by the latest instant-grat single ‘Mattress On The Floor’ which drops May 15th.

The LP is the follow up to Pitney’s hit debut and has been produced by Jim “Moose” Brown. The highly-anticipated project speaks to the idea of rebirth—shedding your past and moving forward into a future filled with grace and forgiveness. Combining his love of traditional country music in the vein of Ray Price, Buck Owens, and Roger Miller with his respect for singer/songwriters like Randy Newman and James Taylor, the 13 original tracks seamlessly merge acoustic-driven country, bluegrass, and soulful blues with tender, heartfelt lyrics to create a standout collection.

Speaking about his sophomore release, Mo Pitney says: “I wanted to be completely open-minded while recording this album. It was important for me to meld all my influences of the past that represent who I am as an artist today, hopefully, to make one complete thought and to make something new. The end goal was to shut out all other voices, close our eyes, and create something that came from the heart. I’m looking forward to taking this body of work that is completely me and sharing it with the world. I’m excited to see people’s reactions.”

Ain’t Lookin’ Back Track Listing:

  1. A Music Man (feat. Jamey Johnson)
  2. Right Now With You
  3. Ain’t Bad For A Good Ol’ Boy
  4. ‘Til I Get Back To You
  5. Looks Like Rain
  6. Boy Gets The Girl
  7. Ain’t Lookin’ Back
  8. Old Home Place (feat. His All-Star Band)
  9. Plain and Simple
  10. Mattress On The Floor
  11. Local Honey
  12. Old Stuff Better
  13. Jonas

The forthcoming LP is lead by the hit single and title track which is out now along with other instant releases; ‘Ain’t Bad For A Good Ol’ Boy’, and ‘Right Now With You’.

Although Phil Collins is best known for his many hit songs with Genesis, he has also had a successful career as a solo artist and session musician as well as stage roles and film composition. From a young age, Phil Collins was immersed in the world of music as his adolescence coincided with the 60s boom of rock and roll. Click here to find more information about Phil Collins. Like many others he was influenced by The Beatles and Motown, but local London bands helped nurture his budding interest as well. 

Phil Collins’ mother ran a talent agency adjoined to a private acting school in West London and it was through this which Collins landed many of his earliest roles, including the part of the Artful Dodger in West End musical Oliver! He followed several London bands around the scene, practicing drums in his spare time and citing Buddy Rich as a particular source of inspiration. 

Genesis and Solo Career

Collins joined Genesis in 1971, and the band praised his ability to adapt to different styles. After several world tours he was promoted to lead vocalist following the departure of Peter Gabriel. After auditions which saw 400 applicants, the band eventually decided Collins was the best of all of them. Alongside his successes with Genesis, Collins launched his solo career in 1981 with the release of album Face Value, as well as taking on session work from 1982 onwards, where he drummed on solo albums by artists as diverse as Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin and ABBA’s Anni-Frid Lyngstadt. Collins also collaborated with Brian Eno and Adam Ant, and he played on and produced two songs for the latter on his 1983 album Strip

Phil Collins balanced his solo career, session work, and production with his recording and tours with Genesis until 1996, when he left the band to focus more on his own material. By this point he was established as a solo artist and his fifth solo album, …But Seriously saw critical and commercial success upon it’s release in 1989, allowing Collins to make more experimental music with 1993’s Both Sides. Collins and the band had no disputes about the split and he commented “For me now it will be music for movies, some jazz projects and of course my solo career. I wish the guys in Genesis all the very best in their future. We remain the best of friends.”

Jazz Band, Film Work, and Awards

Shortly after, Collins formed the Phil Collins Big Band and toured festivals with jazz renditions of Genesis songs. Later, he worked for Disney, composing songs for animated film Tarzan in 1999, working alongside American film composer Mark Mancina. In 2003 he took part in a Disney feature again, writing songs and performing alongside Tina Turner on Brother Bear. In addition to his composition work, he has been a voice actor in 1993’s animated film Balto, as well as in The Jungle Book 2, released in 2003, as well as having cameos in Spielberg’s 1991 Peter Pan adaption Hook, documentary And the Band Played On (which dealt with the AIDS epidemic), as well as having a lead role in 1993 Australian comedy thriller Frauds

Awards

Phil Collins has been awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, has been inducted into the Songwriters Wall of Fame, and is part of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Genesis. Despite having polarised opinion with what were considered increasingly commercial releases, Collins use of gated reverb and stadium-anthem songs defined the sound of an entire decade.

I just want ‘Malibu’ to be a fizzy, refreshing drink that comes to you during this quarantine and makes you forget all your anxieties. I hope this can be a little vitamin shot that brightens your day.”
