November 9, 2023 Tate McRae’s anthem ‘Greedy’ has TikTok in a chokehold

Tate McRae’s anthem ‘Greedy’ has TikTok in a chokehold

Canadian singer Tate McRae‘s scintillating single ‘Greedy’ has taken the internet by storm. It was released through RCA Records on September 15, 2023, as the lead single from her upcoming second studio album Think Later. The song is one of her most commercially successful to date, earning over 260 million streams on Spotify and peaking at number 14 atop the US Billboard Hot 100.

Tate McRae described ‘Greedy’ as a “cool female empowerment song” which she loved, explaining that the song marks the first time people have seen a “feistier and more playful side” of her, being as “unexpected” as it is. First teased to her fans on TikTok on August 4, 2023, the track subsequently went viral on the platform with over 200,000 videos made across different accounts. Billboard writer, Kyle Denis, described the song as a “successful example of a concerted TikTok-focused promotional plan”, because its success was bolstered by snippets steadily teased by McRae over time, rather than having the single erupt as a random trend.

Enormously successful in its response from the public, the song peaked at number one in Austria, Bulgaria, Denmark, Greece, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway and the UAE. To boot, ‘Greedy’ entered the top ten in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, New Zealand, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

Nana Razaia turns up the heat with steamy new track ‘Toxico’

Born in Brockton, Massachusetts from Brazilian parents, Nana Razaia aims at celebrating her South American roots through music. Taking pride in writing, producing and mixing all her songs, multifaceted artist Nana Razaia explores her dual identity through the music she creates. This results in her unique brand of melodic playfulness and fresh approach to vocal production, blending in contemporary Brazilian instrumentation with 2000’s R&B influenced vocals. 

Listen / Stream : Nana Razaia – ‘Toxico’

With ‘Toxicò’, her first ever Baile Funk track released on August 25th, Nana Razaia reclaims her contrasted cultural identity. Ideal for turning up the heat of any party, this highly addictive track will undoubtedly become an instantaneous club favorite. 

Backed by Baile Funk’s characteristic Miami bass and Afrobeat inspired percussion, ‘Toxicò’ sees Nana Razaia jumping smoothly in between her two native languages. Described as her rowdiest work yet, the songs’ luscious beats and blazing hot lyrics allows Nana Razaia to reclaim and reinterpret her Brazilian identity.

When asked about her inspiration for the song, she explains: “Over the years, I took it upon myself to discover more about contemporary Brazilian art and culture, the stuff my parents didn’t grow up on. My world opened up and my curiosity kicked into high gear. I became hooked on baile funk. My main goal with Tóxico is to show that even though I’m thousands of miles away from the motherland, I never lost my Brazilian identity.”

Liz Cass releases new disco-influenced single ‘Too Hot’

Liz Cass just released her brand new single ‘Too Hot’, a scorching pop track which glistens with an 80s disco shimmer as she casts away fickle past relationships among its infectious funky groove. ‘Too Hot’, which was produced by William Dinesen and mixed and mastered by DARGZ (Moses Boyd, Flyte, Poppy Ajudha), follows the release of her critically acclaimed debut album ‘The Words.  

Stream/Download: Liz Cass – ‘Too Hot’ 

Earlier this year, Liz also shared the ‘Teardrops’ EP, a choice selection of songs from Womack and Womack, Joy Division, Mazzy Star and Rialto, which she covered with her unique touch as her broad vocals paired with soaring synths and downtempo beats. “Tender and tranquilising… plays on her vintage tones and ambience,” said Notion of the release, while Wonderland wrote, “Liz continues to captivate listeners and establish herself as a rising star.

Regarding her latest song, Liz says, “‘Too Hot’ is the first single from my next project. It’s inspired by those fiery and quick to burn out romances that lack any meaningful foundation. A lot of fun and excitement but never lasting. I used to seek that out, but now just the idea of it is exhausting to me!”

August 4, 2023 Whammyboy releases new and catchy Electro-Pop single ‘Chop It’

Whammyboy releases new and catchy Electro-Pop single ‘Chop It’

“Space-Pop” pioneer Whammyboy is back with another incredibly feel good track in ‘Chop It’, out on the 4th of August via Gems (Warner Music Norway). After his single ‘Heart’ received support from BBC Radio 1’s Future Artists Show, he’s gone on to play shows in both England and Scandanavia, with an EU and UK tour coming up in Autumn.

His fourth single, ‘Chop it’ is a befitting name for a song that is full of glitchy, chopped sounds and melodies. It’s incredibly fresh and modern, yet it manages to sound nostalgic, with an almost Disco-like beat and rhythm section underpinning the ever-modern synths and effects. His vocals are clean and extremely catchy as they float over a bouncing offbeat bass that hops on-and-on throughout the track. It’s the type of song you leave on repeat. It’s pop music for both humans and aliens.

Whammyboy had this to say: “It’s called that (Chop It) basically because I’m chopping some sounds…it’s very literal. The technique was inspired by Daft Punk, production-wise. But then it turned into something else, thanks to the offbeat bass from my childhood again. It really has me in its grip! With the lyrics, they’re very kind of vague, expressionistic kind of lyrics.” 

Having recently performed at Piknik i Parken in Oslo in June, Whammy Boy  will be bringing his eclectic electro-pop sound to Pstereo in Trondheim and Reeperbahn Festivals in Germany in August and September followed by a EU and UK tour in October. Look out for the release of his debut EP “Space Pop Vol. I” on the 8th of September.
