Highlight & Jaquae Release “Movie”

Published

By

Highlight is a New York rapper, who has made it his mission to inspire and entertain the massed through his music. The beginning of 2021 has already started off on a high-note for Highlight, who releases his new single titled “Movie” alongside Jaquae. They also have an accompanying video on the way, that will be directed by renowned videographer Ben Griffin.

Highlight began his career by rapping in the streets of The Bronx at the early age of 16. Using the money he hustled for, he raised enough to create his first demo, which then gained him a lot of buzz. He would then sign to a record label, who also housed the talents of French Montana and Hell Rell.

During this time, he collaborated with Fred The Godson, who would be come a good friend and acquittance of Highlight. Fred introduced Highlight to another rapper, Jaquae, who is known for his appearance in VH1’s ‘Love & Hip-Hop New York’.

But soon after, tragedy would hit, as Fred “The Godson” would lose his battle with COVID-19 in April 2020. The unfortunate passing would push Highlight to get back in the music, not only for himself, but in honor of Fred.

In memory of their mutual friend, Jaquae and Highlight would re-connect in Miami to cook up some music, one of which was the new drop “Movie.”

Here’s what Highlight had to say about the record:

“I told my producer Jaeycol, I need this to sound like I’m in a Fu**ing movie.. And he killed it! I also sent to a friend in the NBA, and he sent back more fire emojis than I’ve ever seen in my life [haha].
Then Cool [from Cool and Dre] said “if this isn’t in Fast and the Furious it’s a shame.”

Global superstars Becky G and Burna Boy have joined forces on their latest track “Rotate” which is out now via Kemosabe/RCA Records.

Becky G says, “Rotate” to me is a celebration. I think it’s evident that futbol holds a special place in my heart and having Burna Boy join me on this made sense because ultimately I wanted to embody the perfect pre-game song that gets the blood flowing, makes you want to dance and enjoy the sport.”

Burna Boy says, “This is a song that inspires you to aspire and I’m truly honoured to be a part of the champions league journey. Writing it came from a place of positivity. The belief that no matter who or where you are, whatever your background or your origins are, there is no limit to what you can achieve when you put your mind to it! I believe we are ALL champions!”

“Rotate,” which was co-written by both artists along with SoFLY, Nius, DiGenius, Elena Rose, Nate Campany and Jin Jin and produced by SoFLY, Nius and DiGenius, is currently featured in the 2021 Pepsi global football campaign “Music Keeps Us Fizzing’  which launched earlier this week (https://youtu.be/EMjHEukGL7M).
