Cardi B Signs Publishing Deal With Sony/ATV

Published

on

Sony/ATV Music Publishing has signed a worldwide deal with Cardi B, the company announced today. She recently made history with her lead single, “Bodak Yellow”, when it became the longest running solo female rap song to hold the #1 spot Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Cardi B said: “Oooo, I’m so happy to be with my new family Sony/ATV. ‘Bodak Yellow’ is only the beginning and we’re just getting started.

Sony/ATV Co-President, U.S. Rick Krim said: “As ‘Bodak Yellow’ has already demonstrated, Cardi B is one of a rare breed of unique artists who the industry only witnesses occasionally. We are honored that Sony/ATV will get to work with this special talent who is not just impacting music but pop culture as well.” Senior Director, A&R Jennifer Drake added: “Cardi B is honest, real and refreshing and has the confidence to say exactly what she is thinking and feeling. It’s tangible and you can connect to that.

If you aren’t familiar with Cardi, she is the new kid on the block, but she is definately striking while the iron is hot. While many doubted her, including me, she made it to the top of the charts. Before the chart success she was a staple on the VH1 reality TV show, Love & Hip Hop New York, where she really brought life back to the weakest extension of the franchise. Cardi is quick witted, honest, and funny…..and always ready to fight! Last December, Cardi decided to leave the show and pursue her career, as she signed a deal with Atlantic Records, the same label that signed Love & Hip Hop’s K. Michelle! Sounds like a smart move, get in, get out, and get that money!

What can I say except, Go BIH! You did it, you doin it, and I’m enjoying watching your success! You made me shut my fat ass up, because I never seen Bodak Yellow being as big as it is! I been seeing some of these photo shoots too, I wouldn’t be surprised if a modeling deal is close behind. Not sure about the big endorsements tho, with her ill temper, she might be a liablity….but I’ve also noticed a kinder, sweeter side of her lately.

Album Review: Chris Brown releases “Breezy”

Published

By

Let me start out by saying, as a member of Team Breezy, Chris Brown simply missed his mark on revisiting his debut sound. This is something he said we could expect from this album. None the less, the album is still nothing short of fire.

23 tracks are included in the standard edition of the album, and it’s giving you nothing short of the Chris Brown experience. Some songs and subjects can come across as repetitive subject matter wise and lack depth, while others are sure fire hits.

Stand out tracks on first listen for me are, Possessive (feat. Lil Wayne & Bleu), Pitch Black, Sex Memories (feat. Ella Mai), Sleep At Night, and Til The Wheels Fall Off (feat. Lil Durk and Capella Grey).

Get into the album below:

Oktum Releases Debut EP ‘Tales Of Sunset’

Published

Oktum is a Hatian born & raised producer who is truly ready to take over House Music with the release of his long awaited debut EP ‘Tales Of Sunset’ which truly has been a labor of love. Now although this is his first music release, he’s definitely not new to music. The talented composer grew up engulfed in music as he listened to his fathers music in Haiti as a celebrated musician playing guitar for the band Les Shleu Shleu. As a kid he would listen to so many different genres of music with some of his inspirations ranging from Franz Schubert, Frédéric Chopin, Bob Marley to Dr.Dre and Thievery Corporation. As a teen he was introduced to the idea of production with FL Studios but navigating   a promising career in music seemed far fetched while living in Haiti at a time when crime and kidnappings were at an all time high. Oktum would go on to move to the U.S. living in Illinois and in NYC but unfortunately his passion for music didn’t follow him as the years went on. It wasn’t until he moved to Los Angeles where he truly felt like he could finally get back into music. In 2019 something clicked and he slowly but surely began to tap back into his sound which has evolved tremendously. As he continued to work on his music the world was rocked by the Corona Virus outbreak but what most would consider a setback was truly the opportunity he needed to focus on his music. Now he is finally ready to embark on this new journey with the release of his debut EP ‘Tales Of Sunset’ which features 5 hard hitting tracks which is sure to get house music lovers on the dance floor. Get into the project below which is just a taste of so much more to come.
