Published by:

 

Go RiRi! Rihanna just landed her 14th Number one song. The “Work” singer just kicked the King of Pop Michael Jackson to the curb and landed in third place for all time top number one hits, only coming in after The Beatles (20) and Mariah Carey (18).

“Work” — the 28-year-old’s recent collaboration with “Hotline Bling” singer Drake — topped the Billboard singles chart on Monday.

The “Only Girl in The World” singer’s latest album “Anti,” which was released last month, is also at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

On Instagram, she added humor by posting a video of Homer Simpson and Peter Griffin shaking their rear ends.

Snoop Dogg headlines CALIBASH 2016 at Staples Center in Los Angeles

The leading Latin Urban music concert in Los Angeles also features performances by J Balvin, Prince Royce, Nicky Jam, Plan B, Yandel, Farruko, Becky G, J Alvarez, Lil Jon, J Quiles, Zion & Lennox and Alex Sensation.

Spanish Broadcasting System, Inc. (SBS) (NASDAQ: SBSA), the favorite station of millennial Latinos in Los Angeles, MEGA 96.3FM announced the Calibash 2016 full line-up headlined by Snoop Dogg and featuring performances by J Balvin, Prince Royce, Nicky Jam, Plan B, Yandel, Farruko, Becky G, J Alvarez, Lil Jon, J Quiles, Zion & Lennox, Alex Sensation and Henry Santos.

With more than 135,000 tickets sold since its inception, Calibash has become the leading Latin urban music concert in Los Angeles and will feature in its 2016 edition a performance by world renowned music icon Snoop Dogg. Hailing from Los Angeles, just like Calibash, Snoop Dogg conquered the music world and transformed rap and hip-hop music with his signature sounds and stage presence.

Nicknamed Snoop by his mother because of his appearance, Calvin Broadus (born October 20, 1972) was raised in Long Beach, California. Snoop began recording homemade tapes with his friend Warren G, who happened to be the stepbrother of N.W.A.’s Dr. Dre. Warren G gave a tape to Dre, who was considerably impressed with Snoop’s style and began collaborating with the rapper. When Dre decided to make his tentative first stab at a solo career in 1992 with the theme song for the film Deep Cover, he had Snoop rap with him. “Deep Cover” started a buzz about Snoop that escalated into full-fledged mania when Dre released his own debut album, The Chronic, on Death Row Records late in 1992. Snoop rapped on The Chronic as much as Dre, and his drawled vocals were as important to the record’s success as its P-Funk bassgrooves. Dre’s singles “Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang” and “Dre Day,” which prominently featured Snoop, became Top Ten pop crossover hits in the spring of 1993, setting the stage for Snoop’s much-anticipated debut album, Doggystyle. In 2016, the intentionally leaked “My Peoples” freestyle appeared. The track paid tribute to many involved in Cali’s Latin rap community, so it was no big surprise when “Vato” with Cypress Hill’s B Real became his next album’s leadoff single. The hard and very G-funk Tha Blue Carpet Treatment triumphantly capped off a year of heavy West Coast activity. In late 2007, he recruited two hip-hop veterans — new jack swing legend Teddy Riley and West Coast hero DJ Quik — and formed the production team QDT Muzic. The team oversaw Snoop’s 2008 album, Ego Trippin’, which included the single “Sensual Seduction.” In 2009, he issued Malice N Wonderland, the maiden release of a new alliance with the reactivated Priority label, which also signed him on as its creative chairman. He promoted the album a couple months prior to its street date when he hosted the live wrestling television broadcast WWE Raw. A year later the CD/DVD set More Malice rounded up some odds and ends from the album and packaged them with a DVD featuring the Malice N Wonderland short film. In 2011, he released Doggumentary, an album he considered the sequel to his classic debut. The album featured production from the likes of Swizz Beats, DJ Khalil, and Scott Storch, while guest artists included Kanye West, John Legend, Wiz Khalifa, and Willie Nelson. Also arriving that same year was a feature film with Khalifa, Mac and Devin Go to High School, along with its accompanying soundtrack. After a 2012 trip to Jamaica, Snoop Dogg returned as Snoop Lion, and with the help of producer Diplo, he released his first all-reggae album, Reincarnated, on RCA in 2013. Another name change came later in the year when he became Snoopzilla and joined modern funkster Dâm-Funk for the project/album 7 Days of Funk. A return to Snoop Dogg came in 2015 when he partnered with Pharrell Williams for the hip-hop effort Bush. The album was introduced by the single “Peaches N Cream” and featured guest appearances from Stevie Wonder, Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke, and Charlie Wilson (Source Billboard.com).

Colombian singer J Balvin is one of the hottest Reggaeton artists today. Multi-award winning Prince Royce is one of the leading Bachata singers that is enjoying crossover success with his latest English language production. Nicky Jam is one of the most beloved Reggaeton artists with an impressive stage presence, he conquered the world with “El Perdon;” topping the charts all over Latin America. Reggaeton’s leading duo Plan B that has taken the genre to the most important venues in Latin America with sold-out concerts. Puertorican Reggaeton musician, songwriter and record producer Yandel continued strong success after emerging from the iconic duo Wisin y Yandel. Farruko continues to redefine the genre with his lyrics, productions and collaborations. Becky G is LA’s own hottest new artists that is taking the music world by a storm. J Alvarez is one of the iconic names of Reggaeton with dozens of musical hits. American hip hop recording artist, record producer, entrepreneur, DJ and actor Lil Jon jon will perform at Calibash for the first time. J Quiles is one of Reggaeton’s hottest newcomers. Zion & Lennox are one of the genre’s most successful duos. Alex Sensation is the most influential radio DJ turned performer in the US today.

Michael Jackson’s Original Album And The Documentary “Michael Jackson’s Journey From Motown To Off The Wall” Set For Release As A CD/DVD

Published by:

michael-jacksons-off-the-wall

 

On February 26, during Black History Month, the Estate of Michael Jackson and Sony Legacy Recordings will release exclusive CD/DVD and CD/Blu Ray editions of Michael Jackson’s revolutionary 1979 recording, Off The Wall. The package will include the original version of the album   bundled with the new documentary Michael Jackson’s Journey from Motown to Off the Wall, directed by Spike Lee.  The documentary will make its world premiere at Sundance Film Festival on January 24, 2016, and its world television premiere on SHOWTIME on Friday, February 5th at 9 P.M. ET/PT on-air, on demand and over the internet.  After its premiere on SHOWTIME, it will be broadcast in territories around the world.

THE ALBUM – The importance of Michael Jackson’s Off the Wall cannot be overstated.  Recorded when he was just 20 years old, the album heralded Michael’s stunning emancipation as a singular musical force and creative visionary.  It smashed the ceiling on record sales for black artists, ushering in an exciting  new era of R&B-to-pop crossover airplay, chart, marketing and sales  trends not seen before in modern pop music.   It’s the record that “invented modern pop as we know it,” wrote Rolling Stone.  For fellow black artists of the day, Michael served as an illuminating inspiration.

To Black America, Off The Wall transcended music and entertainment altogether. The success of the album marked a level  of  national and international achievement  that conjured  pride  in a culture that as late as the end of the 1970s was still fighting for the kind of social acceptance that Michael’s album received.   Because of Off the Wall’s indelible influence, 21st century artists as disparate as Beyonce, Pharrell, Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd all have a blueprint they turned to for creating their superstardom.

Written by Michael Jackson, the first single from Off The Wall, “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough”, was Michael’s first Grammy and first single to hit #1 in the U.S. and internationally as a solo artist.  With the singles “Rock With You”, “Off the Wall” and “She’s Out of My Life” Jackson became the first solo artist in history to have four singles from the same album peak inside the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. The album was an enormous commercial success; as of 2014 it is certified eight times platinum in the United States and has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums of all time.

The Music:  “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough”; “Rock With You”, “Workin’ Day and Night”; “Get on the Floor”; “Off the Wall”; “Girlfriend”; “She’s Out of My Life“;  “I Can’t Help It”; ” It’s the Falling in Love”; “Burn This Disco Out”.

THE DOCUMENTARY –   Produced by Spike Lee, John Branca and John McClain.  For Michael Jackson’s Journey from Motown to Off the Wall, director Spike Lee assembles a wealth of archival footage, including material from Michael’s personal archive, interviews with contemporary talents and family members, and Michael’s own words and image to create this insightful chronicle from the star’s early rise to fame through the release of this seminal album. A look at a chapter of his career that is rarely examined, Michael Jackson’s Journey from Motown to Off the Wall allows audiences to travel with Michael as he gets his start at Motown, strikes a new path with CBS Records, and forges a relationship with legendary producer Quincy Jones. An illuminated portrait emerges of how an earnest, passionate, hard-working boy would become the “King of Pop.”

Partial list of interviews:  Lee Daniels; The Weeknd; Pharrell Williams; Misty Copeland, Kobe Bryant; Mark Ronson;  John Legend;  Questlove;  Katherine Jackson; Joe Jackson, Marlon Jackson, Jackie Jackie  L.A. Reid and more.

The original motion picture soundtrack for the record-breaking Star Wars: The Force Awakens, featuring new score conducted and composed by five-time Academy Award®-winning composer John Williams, has entered the Billboard 200 chart at No. 5, scanning over 100,000 equivalent album units in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The last and only all-score soundtrack to debut in the Top 5 was Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace in 1999.

The album is No. 1 on Billboard’s Soundtrack and Overall Classical Charts; at iTunes, peaked at No. 1 on the Soundtrack chart and No. 3 on the Overall Album chart; and at Amazon, the album is No. 1 on the Soundtrack chart and No. 2 on the Overall Digital Album chart.

Oscar®-winning composer John Williams’ ubiquitous Star Wars “Main Title” theme has become part of popular culture since it was first heard accompanying Star Wars: A New Hope in 1977. It is no surprise that Williams’ orchestral compositions for Star Wars are among the most beloved and recognizable themes in cinematic history, from the classic “Main Title” theme introduced in Star Wars: A New Hope to the ominous “Imperial March” from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back to the stirring “Duel of the Fates” from the prequel trilogy.

Williams, whose career spans over six decades, has won five Academy Awards® and he has scored some of the most popular and critically acclaimed films of all time, including Jaws, the Indiana Jones franchise, the first three Harry Potter films, E.T.

Steven Tyler Launches Philanthropic Initiative: Janie’s Fund

Published by:

285213

 

Musician Steven Tyler announced today the launch of his new signature philanthropic initiative to help girls who have been abused and neglected: Janie’s Fund.

America’s beloved songsmith and humanitarian, Steven Tyler, an iconic rockstar forever known for his big voice, is now opening his big heart. Tyler is honored to announce today the launch of his new signature philanthropic initiative: Janie’s Fund (www.JaniesFund.org), in partnership with Youth Villages. The fund will bring hope and healing to girls who have endured neglect and abuse. It will also raise much-needed money and awareness to address, through proven programs, the trauma of sexual abuse in children and to expand these services to aid even more girls.

Tyler’s hit song “Janie’s Got a Gun,” was born out of his growing desire to speak up for the victims of child abuse. Launching Janie’s Fund has been a longtime dream of Tyler’s, and he is passionate about the positive results that this fund will create for young people.
“As a father and grandfather, I want to focus my energy on things that really matter and leave behind something else in this crazy world along with my music. I am starting Janie’s Fund to give a voice to the millions of victims who haven’t had one and encourage everyone to join me on this mission,” said Tyler.

Janie’s Fund kicks off with a historic 54 days of impact, running from November 8th, the 26th anniversary of the release of “Janie’s Got a Gun,” through the end of the year. Anyone who signs up to support during these 54 days becomes a Founding Member of Janie’s Fund and receives limited-edition merchandise from Tyler. Fans can visit Prizeo.com/StevenTyler to become Founding Members and register for a chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime experience with Tyler through Prizeo.

The “Ultimate VIP Rock Experience with Steven Tyler” prize includes walking the red carpet and VIP backstage passes to an upcoming performance, as well as hanging with Tyler and his entourage backstage before the show. In addition, other priceless experiences are available, and all Founding Members will be memorialized in perpetuity on www.JaniesFund.org.

The excitement surrounding the Janie’s Fund announcement began last week, when other artists began to receive large custom mystery crates: Bono, Miley Cyrus, Sir Elton John, Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Seacrest, Britney Spears, Howard Stern, Carrie Underwood and more received exact replicas of Tyler’s most famous trademark white, jewel-encrusted mic and mic stand, (courtesy of Atlas Sound and Shure), complete with hand sewn signature scarves and a handwritten note from Tyler saying, “I may have a big mouth, but now I need your voice.” There will be additional mystery crates being revealed from other A-list artists in the coming weeks.

Tyler, the iconic songwriter and voice of the best-selling American rock band, Aerosmith, has been an avid philanthropist his entire life, performing regularly for social causes, including the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo, Norway.

More about Janie’s Fund:
Janie’s Fund is a philanthropic initiative created by Steven Tyler in partnership with Youth Villages to bring hope and healing to girls who have suffered the trauma of abuse and neglect. Steven first gave voice to this cause with his hit “Janie’s Got a Gun,” and his establishment of the fund ensures that these vulnerable girls will have an enduring voice for years to come. Janie’s Fund has two important goals: to bring much-needed awareness to the issue of abuse and neglect of children and to generate financial support to ensure that girls receive the most effective support available to help them overcome the trauma and pain of abuse. One hundred percent of all donations to Janie’s Fund are used to support proven programs at Youth Villages that have demonstrated effectiveness in addressing the trauma of sexual abuse in children and to expand these services to help even more girls. These services incorporate the latest research on developing brains and neuropsychology.
