Farruko Releases Powerfully Impacting Summer Anthem “Nazareno”

Published

on

As one of the music industry’s most prominent figures, Farruko, continues to create music that is relevant and impactful – something that is showcased with his latest song “Nazareno.” The song and its official video are available for streaming on all digital platforms today.

Throughout his remarkable and renowned musical career, the Puerto Rican urban music legend is once again proving that he is one of the most versatile artists of his generation by creating music that is not only in tune with current industry trends but also in line with his beliefs and positive messaging. His latest track, “Nazareno,” features Farruko’s signature style of using cutting edge rhythms and beats to produce something that will have everyone up off their seats and dancing throughout the summer. The lyrics of the song weave a story of someone who was being washed over by an external tide of undesired influences while longing for something better.

The video, which was directed by Mike Ho and produced by Cinema Giants, shows Farruko at a club surrounded by people who are in the throes of partying. The Puerto Rican rapper can be seen dressed in all white, a symbolic show of purity, while everyone around him is dressed in dark colors. The video was executive produced by Raul Celaya and Jessy Terrero.

“Wow. Nazareno. What a video. When me and Farruko spoke, we talked about doing something special for Nazareno. Something that would shock the world. Something that would touch people…but not the ones that are reachable. We wanted to reach the ones that the church doesn’t go for. This is going in and showing the TRUTH of what living in sin is to save the ones that need to be saved. That’s what Farruko wanted to do with this video.” comments Mike Ho.

In April, the critically acclaimed performer released his song “My Lova,” which focuses on the painful emptiness one feels when the most important person in one’s life is no longer around them and how walking that path can feel solitary. Since its release, the song has accrued over 3.36 million views on Youtube and over 3.29 million combined streams. Farruko first premiered the song on the Latin American Music Awards stage and later in the telecast joined an ensemble of over 30 artists including the Black Eyed Peas, Ozuna, Prince Royce and more for a special performance of “Where Is The Love” in solidarity with the people of Ukraine.

At the beginning of 2022, the multi-award-winning singer-songwriter took the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Latin Airplay Chart with his song “El Incomprendido” featuring Victor Cardenas and DJ Adoni off of his LA 167 album. The song has garnered over 56.6 million YouTube views and over 118 million combined global streams.

PG County, Maryland artist Eli Derby has been joined by label mate and R&B savant 6lack on the official music video for track “Lately.” The song is off Eli’s current release, his debut EP Left on Read. Set in Los Angeles, CA the “Lately” music video is a stunning vignette of heartbreak and moody tension that matches the energy of the R&B earworm. Listen Here: https://eliderby.lnk.to/LeftOnRead

Hailing from PG County, Maryland and now based in Atlanta, GA, Eli Derby released his debut EP, Left On Read, last month. The five-track R&B project expertly showcases Eli’s prowess for addictive melodies and relatable songwriting. Eli wanted to reflect on the nature of how his generation of peers (Gen Z) often find solace on social media and yet struggle to actually communicate true feelings… leaving each other on “read.”

The 18 year old broke onto the scene last Fall with debut single “Gaslight.” The song received high acclaim from the likes of Complex, Billboard Uproxx, Okayplayer, VIBE (“…a catchy vibe”) — all praising the track as one of the week’s best R&B releases. Signed to LVRN (home to 6lack and Summer Walker and more), Eli has been busy gaining experience on the live arena performing sessions and sets across the DMV and South (watch his acoustic performance of “Gaslight” here) and ready to release more music in 2022 off the back of Left on Read.

Lojay and Sarz Recruit Chris Brown for “Monalisa” Remix

Published

on

Lagos-based Afro-fusion artist Lojay and internationally renowned super-producer Sarz (Beyoncé, Drake, Wizkid, Burna Boy) have released a brand new remix of their recent smash single “Monalisa” featuring multi-platinum certified, GRAMMY Award-winning R&B superstar Chris Brown. STREAM HERE // LYRIC VIDEO HERE

Taken from Lojay & Sarz’s collaborative LV N ATTN EP last year, the original “Monalisa”became an early standout due to its hypnotic beat and infectious hooks, becoming not just one of the biggest releases in Nigeria, but a global hit that put Lojay on the map as one of Nigeria’s fastest-rising cultural exports and cemented Sarz’s reputation as the most significant name in Afrobeats. Check out the duo’s LV N ATTN EP HERE.

With over 100 million streams to date, it’s safe to say that “Monalisa” became something of a cultural phenomenon last year. The track not only won applause from the likes of The Face, HYPEBEAST, and The FADER — where it ranked No. 30 on their 100 Best Songs of 2021 list— but it also became the 5th most streamed song across Nigeria last year. Meanwhile, the track demonstrated its massive transatlantic reach by peaking at No. 1 on Shazam’s Global Afrobeats chart and within the top 10 on both the US and UK Official Afrobeats charts.

Sharing his excitement about the new remix, Lojay says, “at the time I was creating this song I would have never imagined hearing a Chris Brown verse on it but the best part is he actually took his time and killed it and gave the song a different feel. He’s someone I’ve always wanted to work with so this is a really good feeling.”

WATCH: Moonchild Sanelly and Trillary Banks Share Empowerment Anthem ‘Cute’

Published

on

Moonchild Sanelly – real name Sanelisiwe Twisha – is gearing up to release her long-awaited second album next month. Phases will be released via Transgressive Records on June 10. Today, she shares the new single “Cute” featuring Trillary Banks.

A straight-up empowerment anthem, Moonchild explains, “The song is about bad boss bitches with big dick energy who look fly while they’re running their shit. We can be cute, so our power might look unthreatening, but don’t be fooled, we’re powerful and we’re here to fuck shit up!”

Trillary adds, “Recording the track was a cool, fun experience. I love the Two Inch Punch production. Meeting Moon in person was also great, we were able to go to a gig, vibe at the studio, do some shopping and discuss visual ideas. What a crazy but cute 24 hours.”

Forming a sonic foundation that veers between Amapiano, Gqom, grime, pop, house and R&B while showcasing her vocal talents on more downtempo songs, Phases’ 19 tracks document the varying chapters of a toxic relationship and subsequent freedom. A double album, the first side is a journey through the relationship with production reflecting those different moods and aspects of her personality; the second side, meanwhile, leads into a clubbier amapiano space.

The tracks on it, she says, are a way of empowering all different types of girls and promoting respect for women: “Over You” finds strength and power in breaking-up with a cheating ex; “Strip Club”, featuring Ghetts, flips the male-led narrative, instead putting the woman in charge. “I want people to relate to the stories I’m telling,” she says. Moonchild Sanelly has become well known for unapologetically spreading her message of female empowerment: “liberation for women, in the bedroom, in the boardroom, knowing your power… I need to be heard by a lot of people”. 

Carrying South Africa along with her has long been important for her, too, and it’s something that’s reflected on Phases, as she is joined by two of the country’s most exciting rappers: Blxckie on “ULi” and Sir Trill on “Soyenza”.

Collaboration has been core to Moonchild Sanelly since her award-winning debut album Rabulapha!, having not only dominated the gqom and amapiano scenes in SA but with her international hits and collaborations with Wizkid,Beyonce (featuring on “MY POWER”), Gorillaz (“With Love To An Ex”) and Ghetts (“Mozambique”).

Phases is a highly collaborative record, too, with production and guest features from Sad Night Dynamite, Wesley Joseph, Xavier Thomas (Débruit), TOKiMONSTA, HOLLY and Aramboa.

The album’s title takes on a multitude of meanings: via the range of genres covered across its runtime, the different sounds and styles that it encompasses and the personal journey that Sanelisiwe Twisha has taken to get to this point. But, for Moonchild Sanelly, it’s more literal than that: “I think that, with this album, I’ve managed to piece all the different parts of me together, because I’m known for different things in different parts of the world. I think you get to know me better with Phases – all the different sides of me.”
