Delivering the R&B event of the summer, GRAMMY-nominated multi-platinum R&B star GIVĒON presents his anxiously awaited full-length debut album, Give Or Take, today via Not So Fast/Epic Records.  Available HERE.

 

To celebrate the arrival of the record, he just shared the energetic and cinematic music video for the new single “Lost Me. Upbeat production sets the track in motion as guitar wraps around the simmering beat. It culminates on an instantly catchy chorus, “ I’m not looking for the one, later but for now I’m having fun.”

 

It stands out as one level of the story at the heart of Give Or Take. Across the record’s 15 tracks, he relays his account of the past year to his mother, speaking bluntly on the ups, downs, romances, relationships, and everything in between. To bring this to life, he worked with an all-star cast of producers and collaborators, including Cardo, Boi-1da, Jahaan Sweet, Sevn Thomas, OZ and more.

Next up, he takes over the stage at the BET Awards this weekend. Be sure to tune in for what promises to be a show-stopping performance.

Honest, heartfelt, and hard-hitting, Give Or Take is everything R&B should be in 2022 and more.

Canvasing the continent for nine weeks, it kicks off on August 16 in Philadelphia, PA, visits major cities coast-to-coast with gigs in Los Angeles, Boston, and New York.

Known for his unforgettable live performances, this tour promises to be his boldest, brightest, and best yet—and it will sell out!

He heralded Give Or Take with the ballad “Lie Again.It has already amassed over 12.2 million Spotify streams and 5.3 million YouTube views on the music video. Right out of the gate, Rolling Stone hailed it as “beautifully painful, and Complex proclaimed, “He shows his strength in vocals as he asks his partner to lie to him about past indiscretions.

Last September, GIVĒON shared “For Tonight,” the lead single off the record, which is now RIAA certified Gold. The song was praised by outlets such as Complex and Rolling Stone on its way to amassing more than 175 million streams worldwide. Earlier this month, GIVĒON released a live version of “For Tonight” as part of the VEVO LIFT performance series.

Published

unnamed 14 2

She’s back! GRAMMY® Award-winning, global superstar Meghan Trainor has announced her anxiously awaited fourth full-length album,Takin’ It Back, arriving October 21st, 2022 via Epic Records. Pre-order/pre-save HERE.

This time around, she made a conscious decision to hark back to the signature sound she introduced on her 2015 full-length debut, TITLE, and bring it forward to today.

About the album, Meghan said, “I tried to do the doo-wop feel I had at the beginning of my career, but the 2022 version of it. This is from the new Meghan who is a wife and mom with a baby. This is from me right now. I decided to give the people what they want, but with my spices added to it. I wanted to make my Title 2.0.

To bring the record to life, she worked closely alongside a “core squad” of Gian Stone, Federico Vindver, Sean Douglas, and little brother Justin Trainor out of her own home studio. Musically, she integrates doo-wop and classic harmonies into one anthem after another taking you through her journey into marriage, motherhood, and achieving a new level of confidence.

It’s embodied on the bold and bright new single  “Bad For Me,” featuring Teddy Swims, out today. The track finds the powerhouse tapping into her doo-wop roots once more with a whole lot of fresh fire. Throwback harmonies underline a simmering groove as she opens up lyrically. On the chorus, she urges, “Please don’t make promises that you can’t keep. Your best intentions end up hurting me.Meanwhile, Teddy appears with a seismic and show-stopping vocal turn of his own. Together, they uplift the lyrics with undeniable energy. Listen HERE.

Directed by Thom Kerr (Iggy Azalea, Kim Petras), the accompanying video finds Meghan and Teddy in a symbolic and surreal world full of flowers. As the video fluctuates between different landscapes, it showcases the journey that writing and recording this song has taken Meghan on. It’s one in which she has found light and new beginnings in distancing herself from toxic relationships.

Regarding “Bad For Me, Meghan commented, “My dad actually sent me Teddy’s video for ‘Broke’, and I’ve been so obsessed with him ever since. It’s a dream to record with someone who has that good of a voice, and he’s the sweetest guy ever. The song is a true story for me. It’s about how I stood up for myself and took a step back from a relationship that was hurting me more than anything. It’s hard to do, but I needed to in order to feel better.

Meghan and Teddy will be performing “Bad For Me,” for the first time, on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Friday, June 24th. Get ready for more very soon as Meghan takes it back in 2022.

DeeYounginn out with debut project ‘Next 2 Blow’

Published

DeeYounginn

DeeYounginn, the electrifying 19-year-old rapper hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina has just shared his debut project Next 2 Blow and a visual for “Under Ah Bridge”. Across 13-tracks, Dee brings us on a thrilling ride around the smooth sonics of North Carolina, accompanied by his quintessential Southern flair, lively cadence & genuine pen. The visual for “Under Ah Bridge” features DeeYounginn laid-back in a foreign car and surrounded by his squad, fittingly under a bridge, while delivering his clever verse on the snappy track. DeeYounginn’s suitably titled debut project Next 2 Blow showcases the talent that’s made him a key figure in North Carolina’s rising hip-hop scene and is an apt indicator of the bright future ahead for the rapper.

After exploding onto the Southern hip-hop circuit with his popular track “FACTS” in 2021, DeeYounginn has been steadily rising through the ranks of up-and-comers in rap through a string of trunk-banging singles. Growing up in the South, his path in hip-hop was laced with the influences of rap icons like Gucci Mane, T.I., Boosie & Lil Wayne. From his early adolescence, DeeYounginn knew his path was in music-making and hopped on the mic at the young age of 15, releasing the track “Ah Bagg”, which gained serious attention in the North Carolina hip-hop sphere. After gaining nods from fellow NC superstars like DaBaby & Stunna 4 Vegas, Dee solidified his high stature in the state, and through a continued run of impressive releases, his national profile began to increase. In late 2021, the momentum of DeeYounginn’s career reached new heights when he signed with the North Carolina-based label South Coast Music Group. After signing, Dee released “On 2 Freestyle”, “Lyft” and “Next To Blow” a group of singles from his lively debut project released today,Next 2 Blow.

GIVĒON has always used his raw, evocative songwriting to mine a confusing world for answers, and that approach has connected to the tune of over 1 billion global streams and nearly 1 billion YouTube views thus far. But, lately he’s been fixed on a problem he can’t solve.

As he puts it, “Sometimes the truth is rewarded, and sometimes it’s frowned upon. Does a little deception make us feel better?” This sort of tension is at the heart of GIVĒON’s work. His debut album Give or Take shows off the emotional curiosity and deep warmth of his songs over cinematic R&B arrangements. This sensitivity and love for storytelling traces back to his upbringing in Long Beach, CA, where his mother shielded him and his brothers from the area’s gang culture, and encouraged him to sing.

After years of hustle, he bonded with producer Sevn Thomas (Drake, Rihanna) in 2019 and placed “Chicago Freestyle” on Drake’s 2020 mixtape Dark Lane Demo Tapes. GIVĒON’s March 2020 debut EP Take Time held his first top 40 Hot 100 hit, “Heartbreak Anniversary,” and by March 2021, his When It’s All Said and Done… Take Time compilation debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 (It’s since gone Platinum, and highlight “All to Me” went Gold—his 10th RIAA certification).

Since then, the seven-time Grammy nominee has been forging connections in person on tour, and he’s been hard at work writing Give or Take. Its arrival shows just how much he’s grown, both as an introspective songwriter and an empathetic human being.
