image002

Formerly known as Good People, Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman are an electronic, alternative R&B duo who met while attending the University of Toronto. In early 2013, they dropped their debut EP, afterhours, as a free download. Later that year, Drake’s “Hold on, We’re Going Home” appeared featuring “Majid Jordan.” The track climbed into Billboard’s Top Ten in the summer of that year and dubbed the top track of 2013, right as it was announced that the duo signed with Drake’s label, OVO Sound.

In July of 2014, Majid Jordan released their critically acclaimed effort A Place Like This. The five-track EP is filled with a generous mix of deep house and R&B of the 80’s and 90’s and includes standout tracks “Her,” “Forever,” and the title track “A Place Like This.”

Nico & Vinz continue spreading the good vibes in their new music video “Fresh Idea” directed by Jacob Taylor and Bobby Moser.

The video is part of NESTEA’s “A Taste Of Freedom” campaign, which was launched in 2014 and is currently running in thirty-four countries outside of the U.S. The campaign message is about encouraging consumers to overcome the hurdles of the everyday routine, taking a moment to pause with NESTEA and refocusing on what makes life great.

The latest visual from the Norwegian duo who made their splash on the world with their global #1 hit “Am I Wrong,” was shot in the tropical paradise of Kauai, Hawaii and captures the essence of “Fresh Idea”: taking time to breathe it all in, relax and enjoy. Shortly after the clip begins, viewers are transported to the majestic beaches, mountains and ocean, while Nico & Vinz sing the catchy lyrics, “just breathe, you’re free.” The video shows a moment of freedom, in a fun and lighthearted way.

Catch the duo this Friday July 3rd in New Orleans as they touchdown at the Mercedes Benz Superdome for the ESSENCE Music Festival with an 8:40pm performance in the Ford Super Lounge.

Following an electrifying dance tribute for Janet Jackson at the 2015 BET Awards with Ciara and Tinashe, Jason Derulo releases the Syndrome-directed video for his next single “Cheyenne”inspired by the king of pop and Janet’s late brother Michael Jackson.

Produced by Ian Kirkpatrick and The Monsters & The Strangers, the 80’s-inspired track finds the Miami-native musing over a female vice.   The So You Think You Can Dance judge gave a sneak peak of the upcoming video on Good Morning America where he revealed the inspiration behind the visual.  “I wanted to take it back to when music videos had a huge concept and a huge dance break.  The video is kind of like The Haunting, Cheyenne is haunting my mind and she haunts me within the video.”

 

Derulo released his fourth studio album Everything Is 4 on June 2nd.  Led by his fourth #1 single “Want To Want Me,” the 11-track album features appearances from Stevie WonderJennifer LopezKeith UrbanMeghan TrainorK.

Following the announcement of his upcoming 12-track debut LP ‘The Ashen Tang’, set for release June 9 via 37 Adventures, London’s Royce Wood Junior reveals the second single to be taken from this stunning, future classic record. “Clanky Love” is the perfect sequel to first single “Midnight”, taking the moonlit soul and burgeoning hope of its predecessor and spinning it into a modern love jam. “At the dark end of the lullaby there’s a garden and a waterslide”, Royce promises over rousing piano stabs and a delicious cacophony of fuzz-laden guitars and clattering percussion, that magnetic voice perfectly meshing with the skewed, multi-layered production that he is known for. Remixes are set to come from Jamie Lidell, Salute and Compton White. Stream the single below:
