“Nature is the true headliner at the Atlantis Concert for the Earth,” said will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas. “It is a surreal other-worldly experience to perform on the rim of an extinct volcanic crater to celebrate the Rockstars of Conservation while using music as a megaphone to call attention to the need for global conservation.”

“Biodiversity, from wildlife to ecosystems, underpins the existence of life on Earth,” said Wes Sechrest, chief scientist and CEO of participating partner Re:wild. “We are excited to be a part of Concert for Earth, a celebration of the symphony of life on our unique planet and an invitation to come together to protect and restore nature for the benefit of biodiversity, the climate, and all of us”.

“I love Concert for Earth’s inclusive mission of finding balance with our planet and leaning into our passions and superpowers to inspire people to become Rockstars For Earth! The world is changed by our actions and not our opinions,” said Nicole Scherzinger

Atlantis Concert for Earth is taking place in Sete Cidades, in Azores, Portugal. The pristine venue is a natural amphitheater, nestled along two lakes inside an ancient volcano crater. With breathtaking 360-degree views, Atlantis Concert for Earth is the only concert for planet Earth with a location as visually stunning as this ecologically rich setting.

Atlantis Concert for Earth was created by Atlantis Entertainment, a full-service media, tv & film production company and record label founded by some of the most successful names in the music, film & television and tech industries, who also share a passion for conservation. The event was conceptualized by Atlantis Entertainment CEO and co-founder Nuno Bettencourt, an Azorean-born and Grammy-nominated multi-platinum artist, songwriter and producer known for his work with Extreme, Rihanna, Robert Palmer, Perry Ferrell and Janet Jackson, along with fellow co-founders Rene M. Rigal, an award winning television, film and content producer and the former Chief Creative Officer of Virgin Produced and President of State Street Pictures (Fox), and Steven Schuurman high-tech entrepreneur and philanthropist, co-founder of Elastic (NYSE: ESTC). With an all-star lineup booked by music industry veteran and talent booker, Scott Igoe, the concert will make “Earth the Headliner” by inspiring action and hope to bring humans back into balance with Earth.

“These days, words Climate and Climate Crisis trigger so many different emotions from all walks of life,” said Bettencourt, who has been working for over a decade to bring Concert For Earth to fruition. “It shouldn’t matter who you voted for, we don’t judge what your political color is internationally or, here in the U.S. if you are Republican, Democrat, Black, white, Hispanic, rich or poor. Because whatever we are, whether we like it or not, we share the same air, the same water and the same soil. We have all heard about the urgency, but fear is not the answer. Instead,  together during Concert for Earth we are taking our universal language and power of music to celebrate the Conservationists and Entrepreneurs from around the world who are game changers leading the way with real, tangible solutions to flip the current narrative of climate and conservation from blame, anger, and doom; to positivity and hope by shining a light on inspirational SOLUTIONS to get us back in balance with our planet.  It’s time to stop telling everyone how we are all going to die, but instead show them how we’re all going to live.”

More details and line-up announcements to be made soon. For more information and to keep up with the latest on Atlantis Concert for Earth, please visit: WEBSITE

DJ Khaled Reveals Title Of New Album ‘God Did’

Does DJ Khaled use Autotune for bad singers

DJ Khaled has personally revealed the title of his anxiously awaited thirteenth full-length in studio album, GOD DID, coming soon via We The Best Music Group/Epic Records. He immediately set social media on fire with the announcement of the album’s name.

The phrase, GOD DID, has become synonymous with Khaled as of late. Fellow superstars such as Lebron James, Kevin Hart, FANLUV and so many more have adopted it as their mantra. It’s a phrase that is about to forever shape the culture and define 2022.

Recently, Khaled has teased the release of new music with a series of posts on social media joined by the likes of Drake, Future, Lil Baby and more in the studio. He’s stirring up anticipation to a fever pitch and will deliver anthems yet again.

He’s kept very busy throughout 2022. He made headlines with an appearance on stage at the Academy®Awards where he opened up the show, and he notably received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Plus, he served as a presenter, twice, at the Billboard Music Awards.

Last year, Khaled unleashed his twelfth full-length album, KHALED KHALED [We The Best Music Group/Epic Records]. It arrived as his third #1 debut on the Billboard Top 200, sixth #1 on the Top Rap Albums Chart, and fourth #1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart. It also reached platinum status.

Get ready for more from Khaled. Two words say it all, GOD DID.

For over two decades, the very mention of DJ Khaled has implied an elevated level of musical greatness, entrepreneurial excellence, and cultural impact. You’ve heard him across a GRAMMY® Award-winning multiplatinum catalog, seen him in blockbusters such as Bad Boys For Life, caught him on the cover of Rolling Stone, watched him on numerous television programs, and felt his presence from the streets all the way up to the Barack Obama White House.

He has achieved dozens of multiplatinum and gold certifications, including the 9x multi-platinum Billboard Hot 100 #1 “I’m The One” [feat. Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper, & Lil Wayne], 6x multi-platinum “Wild Thoughts” [feat. Rihanna & Bryson Tiller], and double-platinum “No Brainer” [feat. Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper, & Quavo].

The latter propelled his 2019 album, Father ofAsahd [We The Best Music Group/Epic Records], to the top of the charts. Not only did it garner a platinum certification, but it also became his third consecutive Top 2 debut on the Billboard Top 200 and emerged as the “#1 Most-Streamed Record” upon release. To date, he has moved over 20 million singles and 6 million albums in addition to gathering 4 billion-plus streams.

Not to mention, he launched We The Best Music Group—a record label, management, publishing, and production company and in-demand studio. As a committed philanthropist, he founded his 501(c)3 organization The We The Best Foundation. It uplifts individuals throughout underserved communities across the United States and supports various non-profits.

He has supported the fight against COVID-19., U2 frontman Bono recruited him as the first social media ambassador for Project Red, and he serves as the national spokesperson for Get Schooled. Now, the power of this legacy defines his twelfth full-length album—which bears his birth name—Khaled Khaled [We The Best Music Group/Epic Records], preceded by two chart-busting bangers alongside frequent collaborator Drake, namely “POPSTAR” and “GREECE.”

Published

on

unnamed
Today, multiplatinum musician, entrepreneur and record executive, Yo Gotti announces his signing of the most-sought after emerging artist in the industry, GloRilla –off the heels of her smash Billboard Hot 100 anthem “FNF (Let’s Go).”
Since releasing “FNF” in late-April, GloRilla has taken the music industry by storm, as the song sparked the viral #FNFChallenge on TikTok while the music video generated over 22 million views (and counting) since its release in late-April. By signing the scorching star to his esteemed CMG record label in partnership with Interscope Records, Gotti is adding more firepower to CMG’s loaded roster while further showcasing the label’s versatility.
“GloRilla is a natural born star – she has a different sound and approach that’s needed in hip-hop right now,” Gotti said. “It’s one of the quickest rises that I’ve seen in my career because she only dropped in late-April and now she has the hottest cultural records in music. Glo is hungry for success and determined to win. We look forward to watching her grow as an artist and reach her full potential.”

In recent months, GloRilla has garnered widespread support across the hip-hop community, receiving co-signs from the likes of Cardi B, Saweetie, Latto and more. She has continued to maintain her momentum by teaming up with Duke Deuce for their explosive collaboration on “Crunk Ain’t Dead.”
“I’ve put in years of hard work to get this point and I’m blessed to sign with the hottest label in music with CMG,” GloRilla said. “I manifested this moment and trusted my talent even when others didn’t. I’m grateful for Gotti for believing in me and I’m not gonna let up. Trust that I have more new heat on the way.”
The announcement comes shortly after CMG was featured on the cover of Billboard and crowned as “The Hardest-Working Label in Hip-Hop.” Signing GloRilla merely fortifies CMG’s loaded roster that includes Moneybagg Yo, 42 Dugg, EST Gee, Mozzy, Blac Youngsta, Blocboy JB, Lil Poppa, Big Boogie, Lehla Samia and 10Percent.
Through the first six months of 2022, CMG has expanded exponentially. In recent months, Gotti signed his first R&B artist in Lehla Samia, inked Jacksonville hip-hop artist Lil Poppa, brought on up-and-comer 10Percent and announced that Mozzy joined the label at the acclaimed, CMG Press Conference in February.
Most recently, Gotti’s CMG collaboration with Moneybagg Yo, Mozzy and Lil Poppa on “Big League” was recently tapped as the official song of the 2022 NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Boston Celtics.
