MarMar Oso Keeps His Heart in the Right Place on ‘Good Intentions’

Published

on

MarMar Oso became a fast-rising star in and beyond his Sacramento hometown with his colorful charisma, empathic pen and silky-smooth vocals. Today, the North Cali crooner continues his hot streak of heartbreak anthems with his playfully poignant project, Good Intentions, available now via Free The Lost/EMPIRE

The emotional 10-track album, led by vibrant singles like “Independent” and “Flirt,” featuring Bino Rideaux and produced by Internet Money, sees MarMar flex his mastery of vibe-setting songwriting as he floats from breezy, buoyant bangers like “Losing You” featuring Luh Kel, to heart-wrenching heat on tracks like “Where You Left Me” featuring Teejay3k, and intoxicated infatuation on “Fall For It.” Though MarMar is seen playing the heartbreaker on the Good Intentions cover, the project itself peels back the curtain to expose the introspective, vulnerable sincerity of the singer-songwriter that the Sacramento scene and R&B have been missing— a beacon of tenderness in the age of toxicity.

Born in Hawaii and raised in Sacramento, MarMar Oso began singing at church when he was 2 years old, and hasn’t stopped since. In 2018, MarMar made his debut with the music video for “Lost Feelings” from his Mixed Emotions EP, the success of which allowed him to quit his part-time job at UPS to fully pursue music. He went on to take the world by storm with the viral success of the GOLD-certified “Ruthless (Nice Guys Always Finish Last),” from his 2019 debut album, Oso Different, which boasts over 178 million streams on Spotify and over 37 million views on YouTube, and inspired a remix featuring G-Eazy and Quando Rondo. Since releasing back-to-back projects in 2020, with Love Don’t Cost a Thing and Marvin’s Room, MarMar has waited patiently to take his sound and career to new heights as he does now with the release of Good Intentions

Stay tuned for more from MarMar Oso, including new visuals from his Good Intentions project and much more!

Vara Releases New Single “Paranoia”

Published

on

Florida-based next-gen pop star vara releases new single “Paranoia,” under the guidance of 98 degrees Jeff Timmons. Fresh off the DNA World Tour with the Backstreet Boys, vara has teamed up with Timmons to disrupt the music industry with their style that can be described as an edgy mix of alternative/pop influenced by Billie Eilish and Avril Lavigne.

Paranoia is an extremely personal song that tackles the subject of the struggles of mental health and we wanted to see if you’d be interested in having vara have this much needed conversation during an interview with you.

“Vara carries themself with such maturity, confidence, and poise, and possesses an emotional intelligence that’s quite indescribable,” says Jeff Timmons, who serves as a mentor/manager to vara.

“Vara has everything it takes to tackle the roller coaster ride of the entertainment industry, but it’s the other things they will do that excites me; the impact they will have on others with their music will undoubtedly be incredible, but the way they will empower and inspire others in their generation is something I hope to have the opportunity to witness.”

Wacotron Puts His City On The Map With New ‘Out The Blue’ Mixtape

Published

By

Putting his hometown on the map with his frank lyricism and heavy Lone Star State drawl, Wacotron is one of Texas’s most exciting rappers. Today, he shares Out The Blue, the highly-anticipated follow-up mixtape to his critically acclaimed 2021 project Smokin Texas. Highlighted by heavy trap production from Southside & 808 Mafia, among others, the 11-track effort establishes Wacotron’s status as the man in his city. He shares harrowing tales about life on the streets of Waco, weaving pearls of street wisdom and sly turns-of-phrase. 

Among project highlights are the dark Texas club anthem “Let Em Know,” as well as the heartfelt, guitar-laden “The Blues,” which finds the street veteran taking his sound in a new direction as he reckons with his past. Featuring appearances from Freebandz rapper Doe Boy and Atlanta mainstay Derez D’Shon and additional production from superstar artist/producer MarshmelloOut The Blue is available everywhere via Pick Six Records/808 Mafia.

Along with the new mixtape, Wacotron shares the video for “Game Time,” a highlight from the project produced by Project X of 808 Mafia. On top of a hauntingly hypnotic trap instrumental, Wacotron unleashes bar after bar as he warns his opps not to cross him: “I’m quarterback and I’m picking the blitz up,” he spits. In the DJ Black Messiah-directed video, Wacotron ignores ‘no trespassing’ signs as he proves he runs the streets of his hometown.

With Out The Blue, Wacotron plans to build on the success of his debut 2021 mixtape Smokin’ Texas, which received praise from ComplexHipHopDXDJ Booth, and more. He hasn’t been entirely quiet over the past year, though, as he’s made waves in the rap game with singles like “Raw” and “Free Mason” (each with over 4 million streams on Spotify). The Waco, TX native has also been an ambassador for central Texas rap, working alongside other Waco risers and boosting their careers while he becomes a star in his own right.

With the release of his sophomore project Out The Blue, Wacotron proves he’s an artist to watch in the bustling Texas rap scene. Stay tuned for much more from the young rapper in the near future.
