CAPITOL RECORDS ANNOUNCES KEY PARTNERSHIP WITH TOP DAWG ENTERTAINMENT

Published

on

The Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE) flag is flying high atop the historic Capitol Records Tower in Hollywood today in celebration of Capitol’s partnership with the powerhouse independent label. The two labels have joined forces to present hotly tipped artist Doechii. The Tampa-based rapper/singer/dancer/genre-disruptor/fashionista has dominated the internet since the release of her unwaveringly original EPs – 2020’s Oh the Places You’ll Go and 2021’s BRA-LESS – and the single “Yucky Blucky Fruitcake,” which has generated over 32 million streams on Spotify alone.

Doechii says, “The legacy of Capitol and TDE continues with me and my fans…and the legacy of my music starts right here, right now.”

“Top Dawg Entertainment is excited to partner with Capitol Records to provide a platform for Doechii to fulfill her artistic ambitions,” says Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, founder of Top Dawg Entertainment.  “Doechii’s energy is contagious and, together with Capitol, we’re committed to helping her share her gifts with the world.” 

“The first time I heard Doechii’s music, I experienced that incredible chill-inducing feeling that I live for, as both a music executive and music fan,” recalls Michelle Jubelirer, Chair & CEO, Capitol Music Group. “That feeling has only grown deeper as I’ve gotten to know this amazing young artist and heard more of what she’s been creating in the studio. It’s a real honor to be partnering with Top Dawg and TDE as we work to introduce Doechii to audiences around the world and help her develop into the global superstar we know that she’ll become.”

The announcement follows last week’s release of Doechii’s debut TDE track, “Persuasive,” which was produced by Kal Banks (Isaiah Rashad, J. Cole, SiR) and executive produced by Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith.  Rolling Stone said, “‘Persuasive’ is an ode to late nights and partying just a little too hard, with Doechii – who has drawn comparisons to hip-hop visionaries like Missy Elliot – deploying her signature flow…” LISTEN HERE.

Doechii, who featured TDE label mate Isaiah Rashad’s “Wat U Sed,” has been named one of Spotify’s “Most Necessary Artists to Watch in 2022” and tipped as Artist To Watch by Complex, Pigeons & Planes and Hiphopdx. With her new TDE/Capitol partnership in place, Doechii’s reign has only just begun.

Teenear Samples Brandy’s “The Boy Is Mine” on her Single Release “Ain’t Mine” 

Published

Teenear Renee began singing with the praise team of her church in her hometown of Miami, Florida. She later started performing solo at talent shows. 

A version of Rihanna’s “Stay” went over so well that she started a YouTube channel — after her parents’ strong encouragement — to gain wider exposure. Uploads of “Stay” and other covers caught the attention of the Miami-based Slip’N’Slide label, resulting in a recording contract. In 2015, the year she graduated high school, Teenear debuted with “Friday Night,” featuring a guest verse from Sage the Gemini. 

Follow-up “Streetlights‘ ‘ arrived in 2016, followed shortly thereafter by a dancehall-flavored remix with an appearance from labelmate Trina. A handful of additional tracks, including the sparkling Fetty Wap collaboration “Love Me or Leave Me” and the beaming ballad “Need Your Love,” were scattered across 2017 and 2018. 

At the height of the pandemic and social justice with the likes of the George Floyd assualt/murder, Teenear returned to Music with her song “Free” lending her voice and platform to the conversation and activism toward freeing those most affected by police brutality, and racisim. 

The singer, after two years, returns to music full time with her leading single “Ain’t Mine” debuting May 13th 2022. The single samples the living legend Brandys 1998 hit song “the boy is mine” 

Teenear’s label Slip N Slide is excited about this release.

Known for his work with Drake, Eminem, DJ Khaled, Young M.A., and more, multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated producer Mike Zombie has been relatively quiet since the formation of his Don Juligans group and the launch of his WAV TECH app in 2021. 

Now, the self-proclaimed “Humble Genius” gifts fans with a surprise release in the form of celebratory Marcus Mayhem-produced song, “Triumphant.” The motivational, horn-driven track finds the Jersey-bred rapper/producer radiating confidence as he spits some boastful rhymes addressing competition and his own resilience.

“I used to make beats in college with my brother..he actually sent me this beat from this producer named Marcus Mayhem and it immediately screamed anthem when I heard it. 

The first thing that came out my mouth was ‘this sound like somethin ****** this sound triumphant.’ I love making motivational music and it seems people love hearing it .. it’s starting to be my lane. Album on the way,” Zombie shares with us. 

“Triumphant” is expected to appear on Mike Zombie’s forthcoming album, Nice Guys Finish First, dropping on all platforms June 2022. Stream the single below on your preferred streaming platform.
