Tue, 30 Aug 2022 17:36:00 +0000

Two-time GRAMMY® Award nominated songwriter and musician Skip Marley returns with a brand new single titled 'Jane' featuring Nigerian-based Afropop sensation Ayra Starr. Listen HERE.

An irresistible end-of-summer jam, 'Jane' was produced by Rykeyz (who also produced Skip's #1 single 'Slow Down' with H.E.R., as well as hit songs by Jessie Reyez, Ari Lennox, Demi Lovato, and Rick Ross, among others). Recorded in Miami, the single comes with an official music video directed by Mid Jordan, featuring both Marley and Starr. Watch the official music video for 'Jane' Featuring Ayra Starr HERE.

Speaking on his latest single, Marley shares: "'Jane' is really about finding that thing in your life to keep you balanced and free from stress. It was a good common ground for Ayra and I to instantly connect and set the vibe."     

Currently, Skip Marley is on his North American festival tour including headlining slots at Beacon Park in Detroit, MI tomorrow night, as well SummerStage in Central Park, NYC on September 26. On September 21, the young Marley will commence his headlining CHANGE TOUR, starting in Toronto, Canada. For tickets and more information, go to: www.skipmarley.com/tour

'Jane' Ft. Ayra Starr follows his last single, 'Change' released earlier this year via Tuff Gong/Island Records. Produced and co-written by Oscar Holter (The Weeknd, Coldplay, Katy Perry, P!nk,) the feel-good, reggae tinged track brought all of the positive vibes at a time where the world needs it most and signified a new chapter for Skip Marley who is currently working on his debut album. Listen to 'Change' HERE.

Skip Marley earned his first RIAA Gold certified single for the #1 global smash 'Slow Down' with GRAMMY® Award-winning artist H.E.R. With over 200 million global streams, the song became the quickest and biggest-streaming song in Marley family history, and elevated Skip to over 440 million total global artist streams.  It was the first time a Jamaican-born artist reached the #1 spot on the Billboard Adult R&B chart.  At the same time, Skip became the first Jamaican-born artist inside the Top 15 on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart in nearly a decade and a half (since Sean Paul and Keyshia Cole in 2006 with "When You Gonna Give It Up to Me"). The track spent 3 weeks at #1 at R&B Radio. Skip was nominated for two Grammy Awards (Best R&B song and Best Reggae Album) and two Soul Train Music Awards, an NAACP Image award, and Best New Artist at the iHeart Music Awards.

"JUMP" sets the pace for Ciara's next chapter. Bursting out of the gate with a bang, the frenetic production underlines her confident and catchy verses before the unshakable hook promises, "It's a party when I make that thing jump." It reups her classic dancefloor-ready R&B with a jolt of uncontainable energy and spirit. Adding to hype, it features a slick verse from viral HipHop group Coast Contra. Signed to Area 51 Music/Virgin Music the talented crew of emcees includes Eric Jamal (Philadelphia, PA), Rio Loz (Cali, Columbia), and twin brothers Ras & Taj Austin (Los Angeles, CA).

 

Upholding a tradition of showstopping visuals, she serves up a cinematic event befitting of this anthem. Directed by Dave Meyers [Kendrick Lamar, Ariana Grande], the clip moves at lightspeed. Ciara not only dances atop a moving subway train, but also leads a succession of highly choreographed routines. It also boasts no less than 14 outfit and glam changes, speaking to her status as a style icon. 

 

"JUMP" will make you move!

 

Prior to release, Billboard, Variety, and more celebrated Ciara's exciting announcements about new music, while HYPEBAE already pegged "JUMP" as a "summer anthem."

 

Most importantly, it sets the stage for her first full-length album in four years and eighth LP overall, coming soon. 

 

The summer of Ciara is underway now.

 

Throughout her unbelievable career thus far, Ciara has emerged as one of the most impactful, influential, and important artists of 21st century. Beyond streams in the billions, she has earned dozens of multiplatinum, platinum, and gold certifications worldwide and delivered timeless anthems such as "One Step, Two Step" [feat. Missy Elliott], "Goodies," "Body Party," "I Bet," "Level Up," and more. Beyond appearances across film and television, she stars in The Color Purple next year. Meanwhile, her entrepreneurial endeavors include everything from her production company Why Not You Productions, co-owner of Ten To One rum, and as well as The House of LR&C, the fashion house she launched with her husband Russell Wilson in 2020. Not to mention, she sits on the board of the Why Not You Foundation and also co-authored the New York Times Bestselling children's picture book Why Not You? However, she's about to kick off her biggest, boldest, and brightest chapter yet now with her 2022 debut for Republic Records, Uptown Records, and Beauty Marks Entertainment.

DISCOVER THE MAGIC OF MIRAA MAY ON DEBUT ALBUM 'TALES OF A MIRACLE'
Tue, 07 Jun 2022 09:18:00 +0000
Today, one of the UK's most gifted artists, Miraa May unwraps her highly anticipated debut album titled 'Tales of a Miracle'. The Algerian born singer has already demonstrated her impeccable songwriting abilities, having co-written for the likes of Jorja Smith on her hit single 'Be Honest', Mahalia on her single 'Jealous' and Little Simz for her short film 'I Love You, I Hate You'.

Now Miraa raises the stakes even higher, welcoming fans to witness the rawness that has resulted in this remarkably powerful 17 song set.

Previously released and much loved singles 'Go Girl', 'In My Feelings', 'Big Woman' and 'Wild Things' have to this point, shown different sides of Miraa. What may appear to be an R&B or pop project at first glance, becomes intricately revealed as a deeply personal album, proving what a brilliantly unique artist Miraa May is.

Heavy influences of jazz and afro pop can be found seductively weaving its way through tracks like 'Scandalous', 'Tight Tight' ft. Mnelia, 'Peckham Love' and 'Empress Me' ft. Dyo.

'Are You Ready?' is a bold entry as the introduction and sets precedence to the fearless project. Over striking piano chords transitioning into fierce drums, Miraa commandingly sings 'you can never hide from a woman, I'll take it all' - enforcing her confidence and status as a woman, Miraa has arrived and she's here unwaveringly.

'Sugamamacita' is divine feminine royalty, and a front runner for the hot girl anthem of the entire project, possessing the potential to release the inner vixen in every listener.

'Miraacle Freestyle' unfolds with a striking vocal in Algerian Arabic, her native tongue. This specific song gives fans new and old, an intimate insight into the struggles she has overcome and how much stronger she has become because of it.

Latest single 'Internet Trolls' couldn't be more relevant songs in today's social media era, and asks important questions to people who find time to hate, when they should be "getting their money up" instead.

Miraa vocalises her dismay singing "because I'm reading all this sh*t that these people talking online, when I see them in the real time it's a different vibe / you must be joking around, you don't know what I'm about."

Despite the delicate vocal, the track sends out a stern message on trolling and trolls: Miraa is not to be played with.

Dedicated to her son, 'Akeem's Outro' is a beautiful close to this regal body of art, encapsulating the pure love and joy Miraa finds in being his mother.

On top of roaringly infectious baby giggles, she sweetly serenades, "I'll never let you go, you're like my saviour / we could leave the world right now, I'll still be by your side".

Although it closes the 'Tales of a Miracle' chapter, this outro cements the beginnings of newness in her life: new love, new happiness and new strength.

Searingly honest and remarkably candid, 'Tales of a Miracle' is a beautiful blend of all genres, evoking and provoking the survivor in everyone.

All the glimpses of familiar melodies and experimental lyric renditions make this very new project feel like a sonic home you've always known and found total comfort in.

If Miraa May is a name unknown to you before today, prepare to be converted into a fan for life.

'Tales of a Miracle' is miraaculous in every sense, further illustrating why the young artist is a force to be reckoned with not just on her home turf, but way beyond.

The new album also includes previously released songs "Scorcha," "Only Fanz" (ft. Ty Dolla Sign), "Dynamite" (ft. Sia), "How We Do It" (ft. Pia Mia), and "No Fear" (ft. Damian Marley & Nicky Jam).

ISLAND RECORDS COLLABORATES WITH UKRANIAN ARTIST ALEXEY KONDAKOV ON CHARITY NFT CAMPAIGN
Thu, 28 Apr 2022 15:50:00 +0000
Ukrainian artist, Alexey Kondakov, is auctioning a collection of five digital artwork NFTs via Bonhams Fine Art Auctioneers, London between 2nd and 12th May. 100% of the auction proceeds will be donated to World Central Kitchen, a non-profit organization that is providing fresh, nourishing meals to people in Ukraine and those displaced in neighbouring countries. WCK is focused on providing meals for as many people as possible at border crossings, shelters, and other locations along the journey by working with local restaurants, caterers, and food trucks. One of the organisation's restaurant partners, Yaposhka, was recently destroyed when a missile hit Kharkiv, injuring four of the restaurant

Following the auction, underlying NFT technology will be used to ensure that a portion of all secondary sales revenue also goes to World Central Kitchen, creating a perpetual donation route to char

The "Reverberate Ukraine" collection is composed of beautiful yet sobering reflections of life before the war and the current escalating situation in Kondakov's home city, Kyiv, which has been under Russian invasion since the 24th February 2022. Much like the artist's previous works, each artwork tells a surreal, powerful story and contrasts classical paintings with everyday life as captured on his mobile phone.

"Reverberate Ukraine is me showing the world what it's like living in a war. It's the only thing I can do right now, living in Kyiv. I hope people can support by sharing these works." describes Alexey.

"We knew nothing about war until it came to our house.There is no war if it does not touch you. We know about WWI and WWII but we fail to truly recognise other wars around the world. If we don't see war we are in peace. Is humanity civilized enough to not start wars? I'm not sure. But I think humanity has the ability to end wars, by sharing love and support. This is the only path to peace. Love can heal. Care and support can melt the coldest of hearts."

The project, conceived by Island Records UK following a collaboration between the label and Kondakov in 2019, is supported by Bonhams, World Central Kitchen and The Giving Block.

Alongside the auction, 1,000 limited edition prints of 'Peaceful evening in Kyiv' will be sold via www.reverberateukraine.io for £100 each, with 100% proceeds donated to World Central Kitchen's Chefs for Ukraine. Once the limited editions are sold out, a blue 'open edition' of the artwork will become available, from which all net proceeds will be donated to World Central Kitchen, echoing the ongoing charitable donation route enabled through the NFTs.

Bonhams have waived fees and commission to ensure this project can deliver 100% of primary sale proceeds to charity.

Artworks to be sold include:

'You Can't Even Imagine It'
Це важко уявити
Features Lord Frederic Leighton "Electra at the Tomb of Agamemnon" 1869

"This artwork is about understanding and feeling war in your home. It's hard to imagine it. No one wants to think about it, everyone thinks that they have a lucky ticket in life. And it's easy to stay away if you don't know what war is and you just get tired of seeing the news.

Unfortunately, only those who have seen the war can truly understand."

'Behind 3 Walls'
За трома стінами
Features Jules Frédéric Adolphe Loewe-Marchand "Myrrha" 1892

"The guide for how to stay alive during bombing states that there should be at least 3 walls between the outer wall of the building and the windows, preferably near a lift shaft or stairs which are less likely to be destroyed after bombing. In this case people sleep in common corridors of high-rise buildings because outside their flats there are no bomb shelters nearby.

 Photo taken at my parents' home, we had to move there and sleep on air mattresses outside the flat. Only in this case we have 3 walls to save us from missile attacks nearby"

 'Panic'
Паніка
Features Guillaume Seignac "Belgium, France and England before the German invasion" 1914

"Since the beginning of the war, the shelves in supermarkets began to empty. Each day is like a survival game, you wake up and plan to get something that can be stored for a long time: yeast to be able to bake bread by yourself, milk for you kids, medicines for diabetics. What will you be missing tomorrow or the day after? Are you ready to be helpless? Are you really prepared for the siege of your city?

Photograph was taken nearby at Silpo supermarket, luckily not all the shelves were empty. People are doing everything to try and avoid a full-scale humanitarian crisis".

'Sleepless nights in Chernihiv'
Безсонна ніч у Чернігові
Features Lord Frederick Leighton "Lachrymae" 1894 -1895

"Air raid alerts go off several times during the night, so people have to wake up and run to the shelter. That is the pressure that Ukrainians face each day and night. War exhausts us. The idea of being killed at any moment sucks all the energy from people, this is a new weight we carry with us every day.

Photograph taken on random yard of Chernihiv streets. I visited it for the first time 3 days before the war started. Now this part of the city is nearly destroyed by Russian forces".

'Peaceful evening in Kyiv'
Мирний вечір у Києві
Features Herbert James Draper "Lamia" 1909

"Each day and each moment there is a dream inside all Ukrainians: 'what if war ends in one moment, right now or very soon? What a great life it would be! A different life, a life that we all did not have before. We will not waste a single moment of this peaceful life!"

Photograph taken during a visit to a friend's place in the center of Kyiv, autumn 2021".

About Sean Paul
It’s rare for an artist to become the personification of their genre. For just a word or phrase from their mouth to conjure the entire artform. Sean Paul is one of those artists. Let him say “shake dat ting” in his commanding voice, and you’ll hear the embodiment of dancehall. Across seven studio albums and counting, Sean Paul has taken the genre global, from its origin in clubs in Kingston, Jamaica to the top of the charts, packing some of the biggest venues in more than 120 countries. Only Sean has the distinction of being the first Jamaican to play shows in Kazakhstan and Madagascar.

The Grammy Award-winning, international superstar has ignited stages in over 120 other countries, performing for huge audiences in some of the biggest venues around the world. Sean Paul has earned several Grammy and Billboard Music Award nominations and is the recipient of an American Music Award, MOBO Awards, Soul Train Awards, MTV Music Awards, ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Music Awards, a Source Award and a BET Award. He is the only Jamaican artist to have won an American Music Award (2006) for Favorite Pop/Rock Male artist.

Sean Paul drops new single and music video “How We Do It” with Pia Mia
Sat, 12 Mar 2022 12:43:00 +0000

Ready for another scorching season, multi-award-winning Billboard chart topper Sean Paul returns with a brand new single and music video entitled “How We Do It” featuring multi-platinum artist Pia Mia via Island Records. Listen to it HERE. Watch the music videoHERE.

Of the release, Sean shared “This new single “How We Do It” is our way to show the listeners, how we dance, how we enjoy life, and how we stay fresh. Big up to Pia Mia, when we started recording this track we knew right away we wanted her on this single and she hit it out the park.”

The track pops off as an international anthem. Its energy dips in and out of island-inflected dancehall beats, slick R&B, and swaggering pop. Sean Paul leans into the production with a smooth and slick flow before multiplatinum artist, actress, and presence Pia Mia counters with an instantly unforgettable chorus. The accompanying visual, directed by Briana Gonzales, seamlessly translates this vibe to the screen as their chemistry instantly sizzles. Bathed in colorful spotlights, a gang of dancers surrounds Sean Paul and Pia Mia in a shallow pool. As water splashes, one showstopping dance routine after another transfixes. It notably serves as a reunion since Sean Paul appeared on the remix of Pia Mia’s “Hot” two years ago. Once again, he has ignited a genre-breaking global banger of epic proportions.

Most importantly, it sets the stage for more music and surprises from Sean Paul in 2022. For now, rock to “How We Do It!

Meanwhile, his single “Dynamite” ft. Sia has eclipsed 26.8 million Spotify streams and 6 million YouTube views on the futuristic music video“Dynamite” marked a highly anticipated follow-up collaboration between the genre-bending artists since their smash hit “Cheap Thrills,” also produced by Greg Kurstin, which has generated over 1.6 billion YouTube views since its 2016 release.

SEAN PAUL TEAMS UP WITH PIA MIA FOR "HOW WE DO IT"

LISTEN & WATCH “DYNAMITE”HERE.

👀Sean recently earned a GRAMMY nomination for Best Reggae Album for his 7th studio album Live N Livin, which was released earlier this year. The album is a collaborative celebration of his Jamaican heritage and dancehall roots in which Sean trades the mic with Buju Banton and Damian Marley. Dancehall can be stereotyped as a competitive, macho space where sound clashes are king, but Live N Livin set out to emphasize what’s possible when unity is the goal. “We don’t need to divide our fans to attain the rotations on the airwaves or streams,” Sean says. “I hold this album very dear to my heart because it shows the effort of collaboration over confrontation.”

👀Last week, Sean announced 2022 U.S. Scorcha tour dates that will include features from his 8th studio album set to release later in the year. Returning to the stage following two years since touring due to the pandemic, he is eager and excited to reconnect with his fans live and in person.
