Briana Donniel – Sick AF

Hard-hitting lyricist brings playful style to the world with new single ‘Sick AF’ 

COLUMBUS, GA – Briana Donniel is one of those rare artists who dares to tackle topics that not many other artists talk about. This independent Hip Hop musician from Columbus, Georgia, has a smooth delivery with witty punchlines that give her music a special kind of vibe that offers a deeper look at life. Her latest single,” Sick AF,” is the perfect example of her signature sound and style. 

Told from the point of view of the “girl next door,” the song explores what it means to be an independent woman in today’s day and age. The girl in the song is one that every guy wants to be with and who other girls want to be. She’s a boss chick who is really pretty and who is doing her own thing and she doesn’t care about any other girls’ opinion about her, Donniel said.  

“I’m very old-school when it comes to music especially in the world of Rap and R&B,” she said. “So I wanted to go with the vibe of the early 2000s. I do a lot of references from old songs from back in that era. It’s just a fun song that I think people will like. The beat is hard but it’s still fun at the same time.” 

Donniel said the song also has pieces of commentary laced throughout that show a bit of her playful side. But more than anything, her new track is one that fully puts on display her ability to weave powerful lyrics against a catchy melody. It’s also a song that showcases her unique voice which sits in the higher registers and stands out as it soars over the beat.  

At an early age, Donniel had a deep love for music. Growing up, she was heavily inspired by Hip Hop and R&B and especially loved the playful yet hard-hitting artists like Missy Elliot and Eminem. In early 2019, she transitioned from a fan to an artist and songwriter, and her versatility has shown since then. She’s become known in the industry as someone who can create songs with a range of emotions, while diving into lyrical content that cuts to the core. 

“I want to talk about real things,” she said. “I want people to know I’m gonna be true to myself and inspire others along the way. I especially want to uplift younger girls to go for their goals and live for their dreams. I’ve been insecure most of my life and never thought music would be the way to go. But it’s the one thing that always uplifts me and brings confidence back to my life. It helps me know I can do anything, and I want to create music that does that for others. Live your dreams. Be the best you can be. I want to do anything and everything, and I know if I put my mind to it, I can demolish it.”

J’Mill – One Of A Kind

Young Hollywood star Jalyn Emil Hall launches music career with new single ‘One of a Kind’ 

LOS ANGELES, CA – One of the entertainment industry’s hottest young up-and-comers is about to take his talents to the international stage with his new single “One of a Kind.” Jalyn “J’Mill” Hall is a 14-year-old actor and singer best known for his role as Dillon James on the hit CW show “All American” as well as for parts in blockbuster hits “The House With a Clock in its Walls” and “Shaft,” just to name a few. Having spent the better part of the past decade acting and performing in Hollywood, this young entertainer is now set to showcase his skills within a different artistic discipline: MUSIC. 

“One of a Kind” is the first of many singles to come this year from the young star. Inspired by his journey so far, it’s a song that details where he’s come from and what he sees for his future. It’s a song that doesn’t pull back on the Hip Hop tone despite his age. And it’s for that reason that he knows the track will connect with a lot of fans around the world. 

“With kids nowadays, Hip Hop is often watered down,” J’Mill said. “I want to bring that same type of tone that big rappers have, but with my own twist. A lot of my music reflects from my experiences – now and before. I know I’m only 14 but I still have a lot of moments to learn from and express to people that I think will be relatable and interesting to know about. Telling stories in your music is really important.” 

With music now firmly in place as another weapon in his arsenal, J’Mill truly becomes a triple threat entertainer – acting, modeling and music. The latter is something he’s always been interested in and naturally gifted at, but the acting has been so consistent that it has dominated his time. But in the summer of 2020, he had the opportunity to meet the CEO of BTMR Entertainment, Michelle J. Harvest, who loved his sound and style and put him in touch with super producer Mal G.  

“Acting has been the main root of my career tree, but now that I’m branching off into music, too, I see myself doing really big things,” he said. “I hope people feel and love what I’m bringing to the table. I hope people see a kid who had a piece of every other kid. We go through a lot of different stuff these days and music can help you get through. So I hope you can listen to my music and feel like I’m an artist who is someone you can relate to – an artist who is relatable to every other kid. I’m making songs for all the feelings in the world, and I have a lot of music that will be coming out this year.” 

J’Mill said he owes a lot to his parents – mother Yma McGowan and father Jerry Hall – who have supported and encouraged him every step of the way along his journey as a professional entertainer. He also said he appreciates all that BTMR Entertainment and Mal G have done to help him find his sound and produce such a great single.

TooFaced – Numbed Emotions

Dark, hard-hitting artist brings in sweeter tone on new EP ‘Look Back’ 

GROTON, CT – If you only listen to the body of work that East Coast artist Dylan Robinson has released over the course of his young career, you might think that he’s an angry, stand-offish fellow. His sound is dark and evocative of heavy bands such as The Suicide Boys or Ghostmane. But if you meet him in person and talk to him for a bit, you’ll realize that he has a very friendly disposition and is actually a pretty nice guy to hang out with. It’s that duality of personality that serves as the impetus for his stage name TooFaced, and it’s that kind of energy that he brings to the table with his new EP “Look Back.” 

Currently available across all streaming platforms, “Look Back” shows off an evolution of style and sound from this young artist by introducing a lighter, “sweeter” sound to the dark tones he’s become known for. With five songs, TooFaced blends a lot of different emotions and feelings together as he looks back at his journey so far and revels in a bit of nostalgia. 

“It’s about everything anyone works toward and knowing that after a certain amount of time, you can look back and feel like you’ve learned and moved forward,” he said. “I think the main thing that sets me apart from anyone else in the game right now is that I always present an extremely honest view of things. I don’t try to make people think I’m more or less than I am. I don’t fill shoes with what I want to be. And I believe if the whole world could do that, it would be a much better place.” 

The debut single from the project is a song called “Numbed Emotions” which is the third track on the EP. TooFaced said it’s the sweetest song he’s ever made and as such, it will surprise a lot of people who are familiar with his work. But that’s what he always hopes to do with his music – offer new things that provide new perspective and a little bit of shock value. Ultimately, the song details his journey in the music world and the various things he’s experienced emotionally. He’s had to sacrifice a lot – from love to friends to extended relationships. But in the end, he said being “on top” makes it all worth it and the sacrifice ultimately necessary. 

“My music is, quite simply, honesty,” he said. “It’s music that inspires people to find out their own truths.” 

TooFaced said he’s working on more music to follow up “Look Back” and has another EP that should drop before the summer that will feature a lot of lo-fi type music.

Compton R.E.G. – “No No”

Hip Hop legend-in-the-making prepares for debut single with feature from Snoop Dogg 

COMPTON, CA – Compton R.E.G. is one of the best kept secrets of West Coast Hip Hop. Coming straight out of Compton with some of the biggest names in Rap, R.E.G. has been spitting some real hit for years. But a stint in prison took him off the map while others from his hometown made names for themselves – artists such as Kendrick Lamar, YG, N.W.A., and Compton AV.  

Trying to make up for lost time, R.E.G. has dropped the new single “No No” produced by Rob Tand the follow up single is Feel On Your Booty FT Snoop Dogg. Both are ready-made international hits. 

“It’s never a dull moment when you hear an R.E.G. verse,” he said. “It’s gonna stand the test of time. I want my music to be timeless. I don’t piggyback off anyone. I try to make my own genre, and my sound is so original that most of the time when someone hears me, they don’t think it’s me. I find myself having to spit a verse for them and then they’ll recognize it’s me. At the end of the day, I’m a working man and I just try to make my own thing. I might get inspired by certain music but I won’t try to make something that sounds like that song. I make something that’s original.” 

The streets never have to hunt very far for the next scorching R.E.G. verse as he has been heard spitting alongside heavyweights that include Chaka Khan, Snoop Dogg, The Dogg Pound, Biggie, AkonKelis, Nate DoggNipsey HussleKokane, The EastsidazKam and Jayo Felony, to name a few. He has also penned some hot tunes for other artists in the business.  

In addition to his new single, R.E.G. has also recently partnered with EKJ Ent which forms EKj Ent/Gorilla Hustle. Through that label, he has invested in “Feel On Your Booty” to enlist both hard-hitting producer Jelly Roll and the legendary Snoop Dogg, whose bars will be featured on the second verse. His extensive resume definitely has earned him a title as a Rap veteran in all definitions of the word, and his undeniable charisma makes him one of Rap’s most distinctive personalities. If you don’t know about him yet, now is the time to add him to your playlists because Compton R.E.G. will be a global phenomenon before the year is out.

EDaGod – Wave In Time

Da God aims to inspire with new album ‘A Wave In Time’ 

PHOENIX, AZ – Eric Chapel is on a mission to influence other people to be better versions of them. That’s his message in both life and art, and it comes to the forefront on his new album “A Wave In Time,” now available across all streaming platforms. 

With 16 songs, Chapel – better known by his stage name E Da God – gives fans a little bit of everything as he weaves inspirational stories from his life into encouraging messages to others.  

“Regardless of what I do, I try to send out the best information that I have without trying to hurt anybody,” he said of his album. “My uncle used to say that some people are just trying to get by and some people are just trying to get over. You’ve gotta maintain or obtain by any means necessary. Whatever you force upon the world, you gotta deal with that. I’m gonna see how I can do it by being more passive and peaceful and by influencing people to be better versions of themselves every day.” 

E Da God said he dips into sounds very organically when it comes to songwriting, picking and choosing melodies or beats that “authentically and naturally work for me.” Whatever sounds good when it’s time to record something, that’s what he’ll flow with. He calls it his “open book” approach – an approach that he said brings the highest quality sound and style to the table.  

“I think what sets me apart is the same thing that makes me different in life, and that’s that I’m just so different,” he said. “I’ve got to introduce that through the music. The way things go through my mind – the wave that comes with the beat is the way for me to relate with people. And through that, over time, I’ve learned how to play with sounds and different styles to express different moments in my life to help me share with other people and get them to see past how different I am. It’s a wave – sometimes you’ll get a little wave or a little vibe, and sometimes you’ll get a bigger wage. Some songs are like this and some songs are like that, and across the whole album you get the consumption of me creating a whole unique sound, which is a great representation of who I am.” 

E Da God said now is the perfect time to bring his album to the world as it fits his life journey perfectly. As a rapper and songwriter, he’s just started making a name for himself in the industry, and this year, he took that career a step further by starting his own record label – Thorough By Nature. He said he’s looking forward to the adventure of being a business owner and exploring the behind-the-scenes side of the music industry while also promoting his music and sharing it with a global audience. 

“It’s an ascending moment for me to grow,” he said. “I’ve been through enough and done enough and now that journey is coming out with song after song. This album captures this moment in my life, and it’s got a little bit of everything on there.”

DGold – F.I.F.O ft. Gorilla Zoe

DGOLD offers ‘Inspiration’ to the world with hot new EP 

WEST PALM BEACH, FL – Like many other musicians in the world, David Gold was set to have a great year filled with many live performances in 2020. The Coronavirus shut all live events down, but that didn’t stop DGOLD from continuing to create. What he was able to accomplish in 2020 is one of the rare EPs of the industry that are often looked back on many years later as genre-changing.  

“Inspiration” is an EP that DGOLD said he’s extremely proud of. It features vibes that he said were inspired by the same music that he listens to when he wants to get going and be hyped up. He loves big music, and he feels like making that kind of music is what he was made to do. 

“I’ve been in the entertainment industry my whole life with my family business D3M Licensing group and I love it,” he said. “You can feel that with Inspiration. This is who I am. My life and love of music is the inspiration for it. And I think it’s a project that shows the hunger, to be something better that so many of us have inside of us.” 

Featuring hit singles like “F.I.F.O.” currently on all streaming platforms and “Come to Me” coming soon, the EP is a showcase of well-crafted lyrics and upbeat energy that simultaneously make people want to move and feel like they have limitless potential. 

“I’ve got good lyrics and a delivery that’s my own,” DGOLD said. “I feel like a lot of people nowadays are focused on either the beats or the auto-tune. I’m not the biggest fan of auto-tune though I appreciate it when others use it. Some people use it well and others don’t. My most important thing is the lyrics. You can look at the rhyme scheme of my lyrics and you’ll rarely find something that doesn’t rhyme or isn’t a good comeback. It’s just better music in my opinion – the kind that speaks for itself.” 

That high-class sound is such that it has caught the attention of other industry insiders. In fact, “Come to Me” is already contracted to be on the soundtrack for the original motion picture “The Weight of Us” – a forthcoming horror film from notable director Rob Prior. “F.I.F.O.” features notorious multi-platinum selling artist Gorilla Zoe as well, and the song led to DGOLD’s world debut on Tawk Radio hosted by Cypher Kai who has an audience of more than 200,000 fans worldwide.  

DGOLD is ready to take that success to the next level and said 2021 has more music in store following the success from Inspiration.

JFK – Sonic Hedgehog

 Chicago rapper JFK shares artistic gift with the world through new mixtape 

CHICAGO, IL – If there’s one thing Jonathan Kelly has known for most of his life, it’s that he has a gift of music that he was meant to share with the world. It’s a gift that he’s honed and developed over the years. Today, he offers that gift to the world as the hottest new Chicago-based artist operating under the stage name JFK.  

His latest mixtape, “A Gift from Me to You,” is the exact kind of music that he knows he was destined to share with others around the globe. The mixtape is his version of bringing bars back to the industry with real songs that will touch the soul, and with vibes that will take true Hip Hop fans back to the days when “music was real music,” he said. 

“It’s an emotional roller coaster ride of songs that are gonna make you feel every word,” JFK said. “Every lyric in each song is my gift to the world. The thing that sets me apart is my wordplay. Every song is crafted. You’re going to see the talent behind every song. Nothing is rushed. It all comes from the heart. And there’s music for every genre of Hip Hop – it’s not all gang banging, drill stuff. It’s family music and emotional music and stuff from my everyday life.” 

The first of the 10 songs on the album is “Sonic Hedgehog” which JFK said he chose as a debut because of how hot it is. The club banger features motivational lyrics that inspire others to take care of business and make fast moves so as to stay on top of the game. The up-tempo party song is the perfect song to introduce a new wave of fans to JFK’s music, and he said he’s anxious for it to begin making its way across the country. 

Another single from the project that is making waves is “One and the Same.” Inspired by the social unrest that came to a head in 2020, the song is JFK’s way of encouraging others to try harder when it comes to mending racial lines and working together to overcome the social injustices of the world. 

When you walk around in Chicago, it’s so segregated,” he said. “White people won’t talk to you because you’re black, and this song is basically saying that I’m not different than you and you’re not different than me. We could be best friends, but you won’t even speak to me. It’s a song about how people could have so much in common, but fear is letting one walk away from a person. You could lose a soul mate just because you’re afraid to say ‘Hi.’”  

Following “A Gift from Me to You,” JFK said he’ll drop the album “Dinosaur and the Marvel” by March.
