Asian Doll’s blisteringly bright video for “Savage Barbie” requires shades to view

Published

on

In the 38th episode of Pokemon, a scene of rapid flashing lights would become a real-life controversy. Over 12,000 people in Japan reported some kind of sickness – ranging from nausea to epileptic seizures – which ultimately resulted in the episode getting removed from the show’s rotation. The lesson learned from the ordeal was that bright lights are bad, bright flashing lights even worse. Since then, it’s been hard pressed to find something similar because the episode has become infamous, being parodied by many modern programs. Asian Doll’s new visual for “Savage Barbie” may be the closest thing to bright, flashing lights that we’ll get – just wear a pair of good sunshades before viewing the ludicrous visual.

Asian Doll’s chaotic aesthetic is on full display here, with her wearing outrageous outfits, partaking in outrageous situations, and even dabbling in the workings of autotune. All of these elements combine to create one strong showing of her evolving talents. While she does draw ever close to the inevitable Nicki Minaj comparisons, one thing’s for certain – she’s mastered the use of bright lights to create a great video; one that’s actually watchable as well.

Check out the visual for “Savage Barbie” below.

YouTube Originals released the official trailer for “Super Sema” – voiced by Academy Award-winning actress and author, Lupita Nyong’o.

Episodes 1 through 8 of this free-to-stream series are available Monday, March 8 at 8:00AM PST / 11AM EST and new episodes will roll-out between March and April only on the YouTube Originals for Kids & Family channel.

Fueled by STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math), and set in an African-futuristic world, Sema, along with her brother MB, uses her “technovating” powers to save her village from the villainous Tobor and his army of mischievous Bongalala robots. A heartless artificially intelligent ruler, Tobor meets his match in Sema, who knows that with determination, creativity, and a helping hand from the amazing worlds of science and technology, anything is possible.

“Super Sema” was written by four-time BAFTA winner Claudia Lloyd (“Charlie & Lola,” “Mr. Bean,” “Tinga Tinga Tales”) and directed by Lynne Southerland, the first female African-American director for Disney (“Mulan II”). The series will be available on the Super Sema YouTube channel, which has had its WatchTime hours increase by more than 40% year-over-year in 2020 vs. 2019.

DJ Ace Wants To Take The Party Throwing Throne

Published

DJ Ace is a New Jersey resident that has transitioned into one of the biggest party DJs on the east coast. Born in Franklinville, his parents helped him grow his love for music. They played jams throughout the house and car. They also gave him his first set of equipment to help strengthen his skills as a disc jockey. Where he is from, it is not easy to stay out of trouble. His love for music kept him in the house and out of harm’s way. In 2014, he knew he was ready to go when he was asked to do a Sweet 16 party. From there, he was able to book gigs all over his area. He used his checks from his gigs to improve the quality of his DJ equipment often.

After taking over his area, he even started getting booked at a local University named Rowan. His popularity skyrocketed there and helped him become one of the first black DJs in Atlantic City. His awesome work ethic led him to DJ for the Platinum-selling artist PNB Rock.   The following year, he once again found himself rubbing elbows with some of rap’s biggest names, including A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and fellow Highbridge label mate Don Q. He even got a chance to DJ a celebrity basketball game at Temple University. As of late, he was even around for King Von’s 2 AM visual!

As an A&R, Ace is taking an uncommon approach to finding new talent. Instead of scouting social media for unsigned artists with massive followings, he has his eyes set on underdogs in the music producer realm. With this approach in mind, Ace has already successfully signed the first producer, D-Mac, to his More To Life imprint. While D-Mac has composed records for Rod Wave and G-Herbo, he is still widely unknown, which is one key element that Ace is committed to changing. Aside from signing superior acts, he successfully brought together DJ XO and rapper Rap So Wavy for his first production credit, a single titled “Vacation,” which has attracted over 1 million streams across multiple platforms.

In five short years, Ace has crafted a unique lane in the artistry of deejaying, which has afforded him a reputation encased in professionalism and immense talent. As he enters the next phase of his lucrative career, the widely respected crowd-pleaser turned hitmaker ensures that he becomes an international phenomenon along with the signees on his roster for decades to come. 

Follow him on social media to peep the next show he is going to rock!
