New music from Luna Shadows, Ginesse, Megan Thee Stallion, Young Thug and Pronoun.
MEGAN THEE STALLION - 'Realer'
Fresh off of the release of album "Fever," via 1501 Certified / 300 Entertainment, Megan Thee Stallion has released the new video for "Realer."
"Realer" premiered as Zane Lowe's World Record on Apple Music's Beats 1. The anthem emphasizes Megan's status while demanding respect as she puts her competition and critics on blast. It also serves as the opener to the 14-track project "Fever.""
The project features Memphis hip-hop icon Juicy J and fast-rising rapper Da Baby. "Fever" introduces Megan’s college-partying persona named “Hot Girl Meg” and showcases her musical versatility and growth that's highlighted by signature rapid-fire delivery and raunchy wordplay, inciting a finely-tuned mix of sweet, sensual and savage imagery.
Megan The Stallion is well on her way to becoming an inspiring household name, not only a rapper, but as an intelligent, empowering and raw voice.
YOUNG THUG - 'The London'
Rapper Young Thug is joined by fellow emcees J. Cole, Travis Scott on Thugger's new song "London."
LUNA SHADOWS - 'lowercase'
Luna Shadows is an artist, producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist creating alternative pop with a dark melancholy and a California twist. She's a badass who oversees and executes the audio and visual for her projects, from beginning to end.
Before she signed to a label, she racked up 35-plus million streams and received love from the likes of Billboard, Refinery29, Pigeons and Planes and more. She loves juxtaposition and the concept of contrast applied musically and visually -- dark and light subjects next to one another, generating a more dramatic interaction side by side.
Co-produced by Brad of Now, Now, her new song "lowercase" is all too relatable.
She explained a little more about the meaning behind the tune is: "Everyone has a person in their life that has the ability to devastate, quickly and effortlessly. 'lowercase' is a song about recognizing your power through awareness in a situation where you have been made to feel incredibly small by another."
GINESSE - 'In Between'
Ginesse is the moniker of Cait Fairbanks, which was inspired by a local street and her preferred choice of liquor. Raised in the suburban hills of sunny Orange County, the young songstress now calls the eclectic eastside of Los Angeles her home.
In the songwriting semblance of the eccentric artists she has always adored -- Regina Spektor, Imogen Heap, Fiona Apple -- Ginesse has created a unique sound that’s not wholly mainstrea, yet is irresistibly catchy. Through edgy effects and atypical tones, her vibe delivers a more modern version, highlighting a spirited voice filled with raw fervor and subtle soul on everyone of her songs.
Multi-dimensional artist Ginesse (Cait Fairbanks) has already made quite a name for herself in the acting realm with her Emmy-nominated performance on The Young and the Restless.
The it-girl returns with a new music video for the track "In Between." The video showcases Ginesse's breathy falsetto, alongside pastel suits and killer choreography. The choreography came together with help from icon Marguerite Derricks, who's the choreographer of Heathers. Ginesse's indie-pop music has garnered attention from the likes of NYLON, Indie Shuffle and more.
PRONOUN - 'I'll Show You Stronger'
LGBTQIA artist Pronoun's debut album dropped Friday, May 24. The album is deeply rooted in heartbreak, but has an underlying sense and optimism that sees Alyse Vellturo come out triumphant and, ultimately, stronger.
Writing the record had a therapeutic effect on the Brooklyn-based artist, whose hazy, lo-fi post-punk tunes have garnered attention from the likes of NPR, NY Times, Stereogum, NYLON and others.
She explained, "This record picks up where my first EP left off. It pretty much saved my life, helped me realize it's OK to be sad, and crazy, and hurt, and vulnerable. But it's just as important to stand up for yourself and know what you deserve, and lastly to move on. It's been three years in the making and I'm so proud."
As well as writing and recording most of her music in her bedroom, she works in music 9-5, and her side hustle is her own independent record label, Sleep Well Records. She loves to skate, smakes the best playlists and is constantly on tour. She was just on the road with Justin Courtney Pierre (Motion City Soundtrack), The Wonder Years, Basement, Citizen and more.
