Muri's latest single "Afternoon" a teaser for her EP

11:24:00 PM


The Ransom Collective’s Muri will soon release “Afternoon,” the first song from her debut EP, which is coming out this year.

The Filipino singer and violinist shared the release date and song title on her social media.

Muriel Gonzales said “Afternoon” is about her own experiences as a young woman dealing with work and life problems by herself, in a country far from home.

“I’ve been working on this song for quite a while,” she admits. “Without revealing too much about the creative and thought process behind Afternoon, I actually find it freeing to open up about being vulnerable and share a piece of myself through songwriting. Sometimes, expressing what you really feel helps you gain a deeper understanding of yourself as a person and as an artist. Making the entire track was both a journey and a reflection. I can’t wait to share it with the rest of the world.”

Currently based in London and Paris, Muri is working on her solo EP, with plans to perform her new material in Europe and Asia sometime this year.

Muri is best known for her work with indie folk collective The Ransom Collective as a violinist and singer. As a solo artist, she has earned a nomination for Wishclusive Contemporary R&B Performance of the Year at the prestigious Wish Awards and Favorite Female Artist at the 35th Awit Awards for her pre-debut 2022 single “Letters.” In the subsequent year, she collaborated with electronic producer LUSTBASS on a remix of "Thunder," which garnered a nomination for Best Remix Recording at the 36th Awit Awards, the Philippines' equivalent of the Grammys.

Soaring Beyond the Clamor: Halle's Debut Single "Angel" Shines

10:23:00 PM



Renowned global sensation, Halle, has taken the music scene by storm with the highly anticipated release of her inaugural single, "Angel." Crafted under the masterful guidance of Theron "NeffU" Feemster, an illustrious name in the realm of music production, songwriting, and composition, boasting accolades such as the prestigious GRAMMY® Award, the track unfurls an immersive auditory experience. A fusion of cinematic allure and a pulsating R&B rhythm, adorned with sweeping orchestral arrangements, envelops the listener. Amidst this symphonic tapestry, Halle's vocal prowess soars to unprecedented heights, her mellifluous tones harmonizing with the poignant lyrics that resonate: "Heaven knows your wings can weigh you down, but angels make a way somehow."

Basking in the aftermath of fervent discussions sparked by The Little Mermaid, Halle's "Angel" extends an introspective narrative. It becomes a manifestation of Halle's unwavering dedication to embolden and elevate the aspirations of young women across the globe. Amidst the ebb and flow of life's challenges, the song's lyrical refrain reinforces the message of resilience, painting a vivid canvas where even in adversity, we find ourselves cushioned by the embrace of clouds. In this musical revelation, Halle not only showcases her musical prowess but also offers a heartfelt testament to her vision of empowerment. Listen to the anthemic track HERE.

The track arrives with an exquisite official video directed by Wendy Morgan (Alicia Keys, Janelle Monae, Lous And The Yakuza), watch HERE. “Angel” made its global premiere on BET Soul, BET Her, MTV Live, MTVU, MTV Biggest Pop and across MTV’s global network of channels, as well as on the Paramount Times Square billboards.


 

“This song for me is so very special and near and dear to my heart,” says Halle. “With everything I’ve gone through the past 3-4 years, suddenly finding myself in this bubble of all these eyes and new opinions, it was easy for me to feel doubt in myself and who I was. This song for me was my climb out of those feelings, a mantra and promise to myself that the work I’m doing here on earth matters and that I matter. I wanted to be able to embrace and be proud of myself and who I am naturally through and through. I hope other brown and black girls and everyone in general feel embraced, respected, and inspired hearing the words of this song.”

Halle shines as a four-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum singer and songwriter, show-stopping performer, and dynamic actress across film and television. She initially captivated audiences as one-half of the acclaimed R&B duo Chloe x Halle alongside her sister Chloe Bailey. The pair delivered two fan favorite full-length albums, including The Kids Are Alright [2018] and Ungodly Hour [2020]. The latter bowed in the Top 20 of the Billboard 200 and Top 3 of the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart in addition to yielding the platinum single “Do It.” Along the way, they notably gathered four GRAMMY® Award nominations, including “Best New Artist.” Beyond magazine covers and television performances, they ignited the stage during the On The Run II Tour co-headlined by BeyoncĂ© and Jay-Z. Simultaneously, Halle landed a recurring role on the hit Grown-Ish as Skylar “Sky” Forster before breathing new life into Disney’s 2023 live-action blockbuster reimagining of The Little Mermaid. Next up, Halle stars in the remake of The Color Purple in the classic role of Young Nettie Harris. Produced by Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, and Quincy Jones, it opens in theaters everywhere this fall.

Previously, Doja Cat dropped her track and video, “Attention” via Kemosabe Records/RCA Records to mass critical acclaim with Rolling Stone calling it “scorching.” Doja Cat was also featured on the cover of V Magazine last month for “The Global Music issue.”

 Earlier this year, Doja Cat was featured alongside label mate, SZA on the remix of her #1 Hot 100 song, Kill Bill. On the remix track, Doja Cat received high praise for opening the song with a badass rap verse, followed by SZA’s original chorus; Billboard proclaimed “Doja’s inclusion on the track injects a new excitement: the superstar opens up the remix with detailed rap storytelling.” She also was named one of TIME100’s Most Influential People of 2023, where she graced the cover of one of the four global TIME Magazine April issues as well as being recognized as an honoree and performing at the exclusive TIME100 Gala.

The Rise of Classical Rock

6:18:00 PM

How many music lovers this days are into classical?  Perhaps few because of the different genres available in market today.  What if classical music mixed with rock?  Would you think present generation would love it.  Perhaps!  But what if the musician is as good looking is this artist, David Garrett, perhaps ladies will forget about those present boy bands.

Meet David Garrett,  a virtuoso violinist and crossover musician.  He's a star everywhere from the catwalk to the Billboard charts.

He moves between two musical worlds... and it seems as if two hearts are beating in his chest: David Garrett in the world of classical music celebrated his international breakthrough.  But that was not enough.  he has finally re-invented.  With his crossover albums he conquered the rest of the world and sparked enthusiasm everywhere.  After his spectacular success in the pop-rock world, David Garrett presents his new album "LEGACY" - a classical recording of Beethoven's Violin Concerto.

LEGACY has made a historical chart debut in Germany, entering the Media Control Chart at #6!


This is the Highest Entry for a classical instrumental album in the history of the German charts!  It's a sensational result, proving again that David Garrett is an artist at the top of his game in both worlds - classical and crossover.  The debut for 'Legacy" at #6 is the highest for a classical instrumental recording since Media Control charts were launched in Germany in 1962.  The album has also charted in the Top 10 in Austria at #9, and in the top 20 in Switzerland at #18.

DAvid Garrett is Juilliard grad who at 14 became the youngest soloist signed to the prestigious classic label Deutsche Grammophon and joined the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra three years later.

This international superstar has quickly amassed a huge and devoted audience - especially of a much younger fanbase than the listeners usually associated with classical music.  His fresh, vibrant take on classical music has shot new life into this genre.  he has gained international stardom, with chart-topping albums and gold and platinum selling discs across Europe, in the UK and the Far East.  The superpowered David Garrett has experienced huge success with American audience as well.  Not only was he Billboard's best-selling Classical Music Artist of 2009, but was the #9 overall New Artist across all genres.

Garrett's unique, and wholly individual style, pays as much homage to Metallica as to Mozart.  His albums cover an incredibly diverse selection of repertoire, representing his love for many gneres, and the ability to tackle each successfully.  Garrett could have easily had a mainstream classical career, but instead chose to reinvent himself as both a classical and a crossover performer, trailblazing a unique career path as a rare multi-genre artist who reaches out equally to politely murmuring black-tie classical audiences in gilded concert halls, and to the hundreds of thousands of boot-stompin', hand-clappin' masses of all ages that pour into venues across the world to hear him play Smooth Criminal and the Habanera from Carmen.

Videos, fan sites and other media of Garrett abound on the internet, but what you won't see in cyberspace is the atmosphere of relaxed enthusiasm that spreads throughout his audiences, or the scores of children that leave his concerts holding Garrett's CDs in hand, wearing his official tour t-shirt, and begging their parents for a violin.


David Garrett's Legacy is now available in major music stores nationwide.  Exclusively distributed by MCA Music Inc.

MDNA, Madonna's 12th Studio Album

6:42:00 AM

If listeners find all the earmarks and trademarks of Madonna in her latest album, that’s a testament to her deep involvement to the process of creating the package, her twelfth and first outside her old label. The powerplay of maturity and a new beginning she's now embarking on makes this one another turning point to her career strengthened by ingenuity and artistic adventure.

While the album title, “MDNA,” is a mere abbreviation of the Mother of Invention’s world-famous name (as suggested by collaborator M.I.A), its accidental meaning, being Madonna’s DNA, actually defines the finished product as her imprint as one of the world’s most successful artists of all time can be heard all over the collection.

The 12-track album, to be released this March 26, is led by the cool single “Give Me All Your Luvin” featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. By now the track has spread via limited privilege as provided by iTunes --- in the process only hastening the interest and anticipation for the Queen of Pop’s album since 2008.

Her recent Super Bowl appearance seemed to have rubbed on to this engaging track as its official music video has football and cheerleading as main themes.

A second collaboration between Madonna and Minaj comes in the form of the song “I Don’t Give A.”

Album producer Martin Solveig pointed out in an interview, "Madonna is as involved as you can be in the recording process. We literally co-produced the tracks. I mean, at some point she wanted to choose the sound of a snare drum or a synth and that kind of stuff. She was really in the session!"

One other track of high interest prior to the formal physical CD release is “Masterpiece” which bagged the Golden Globe Award for Original Song in the last edition of the Awards.

Recorded in New York and LA, “MDNA” had Madonna reworking with ex-collaborator William Orbit (who worked on “Ray of Light”). The latter co-wrote and co-produced several cuts for the new album.

Other numbers in the album are “G*rl Gone W*ld,” “G*ng B**g,” “I’m Addicted,” “Turn Up the Radio,” “Some Girls,” “Superstar,” “Love Spent,” “I’m A Sinner” and “Falling Free.”

Madonna’s “MDNA” is soon to be out under MCA Music in CDs at leading record bars nationwide or online via mymusicstore.com.ph. To download Madonna’s current single, “Give Me All Your Luvin” featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. on your mobile phones, just text KB285 and send to 2332 for GLOBE/TM, text GIVELUVIN and send to 2728 for SMART/ Talk N’ Text and text 5493368 and send to 2300 for SUN Cellular.
