Twin Cities Rapper Populaire Releases “Blow Money” Single and Video

Published

on

Twin Cities artist Populaire connects with fans for his new single, “Blow Money.”

Bred in the heart of the Mid-West where his father was a local musician based out of St. Paul, Minnesota, Populaire has always been accustomed to the world of music and has music running through his blood.

When asked about how he got his start, Populaire said he used to play around at his dad’s band practices, getting accustomed to the world of music. 

“I guess it kind of goes back to my childhood. I always used to be with my Pops at band practice, just watching him and his guys go at it. That’s kind of where I got into that niche of music at a young age. I started writing at about 10, recording at about 16.   I spent that teenage to adulthood gap, just trying to figure out my lane and my sound which is very universal, but the past couple of years I kind of got it down pat.”

Since releasing his DJ Scream hosted project Cheap Flights in 2021Populaire has followed up with several singles, along with the most recent single, “Blow Money.” 

“That song in particular, I grew up listening to the West Coast sound with DJ Quik, Warren G and Snoop, so even the sounds I got now, it’s kind of like I got my own twist to it.” Populaire explained. “Blow Money caught my ear and it kind of got me with the Detroit sound and the cowbell. I kept hearing it throughout the beat and that’s what made it gravitate towards me. The artist/producer Kush2x who I worked with laid a verse, but this beat was produced by California native Ninety8.  Kush2x has the Detroit sound and he’s mainly a producer, but it was good for creating my artist awareness. He’s done songs with Babyface Ray and Icewear Vezzo so he’s got a dope sound as far as production. I also know him personally, our family is friends and I was feeling good. Just got a new whip and so I dropped the vlog with it. The feedback is great and shows people I can hop on this and not bite or borrow from somewhere else. This is my twist on it and it’s going to lead up to a new project this Summer.”

When asked about the sound in Minnesota, Populaire said the Twin Cities right now doesn’t really have it’s own sound, but that there are some really unique performers out there that pride themselves on being unique and authentic rather than copying someone else’s sound. 

“It’s crazy because there’s so much talent up here all together. We don’t have our own sound and even in the African American community we don’t have a real identity like you might see in Houston; where they have the grills and slabs, or out West they got the low riders and chucks – we don’t have that. But we do have some really unique stuff out here and it’s just very different as far as the sound up here. We got Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, Asians, Africans, all types of people out here. The Chicago sound is definitely here, there’s a lot of shi*t going on in this big and not so big Twin Cities area. You can get unique or watered down versions of the originators. So it’s really important to be original out here, and I’m the one bringing the original Minnesota rap sound.”

Published

Asserting herself as a breakthrough artist this year, Jamaican-born singer and songwriter Jada Kingdom uncovers a slick, sizzling, and sultry new single and video entitled “Last Night” today via Money Well Spent/Republic Records.

Listen to “Last Night” HERE

A sparse beat trickles underneath her sensual vocals as she confesses, “Last night was crazy, can’t remember it. Her voice moves in waves with the track’s ebb and flow, dipping in and out of dancehall and R&B with a sly hint of pop. In the accompanying visualizer, Jada brings the lyrics to life with a beach side party. 

It stands out as the follow-up to “Dickmatized.” The latter immediately incited critical applause. Brooklyn Vegan touted it among “20 New Rap and R&B Songs Out This Week” and applauded it as “a cool, chilled-out song that’s about exactly what you think it’s about.” Meanwhile, Dancehall Mag summed it up succinctly as “ultra-sexy.

“Dickmatized” arrived on the heels of the international bop “Jungle. Between cracking a million total streams, HotNewHipHop praised its “insights into the trials and tribulations the young singer has endured.” NME put it best, “The singer/songwriter’s tough upbringing means she isn’t afraid to tell it like it is, a mentality that shines through in her blend of salacious dancehall and straight-to-the-point R&B.

Meanwhile, she added multiple dimensions to this banger via official remixes from Skylar MonesR3HAB, and Sham “Sak Pase” Joseph. Continuing to engage her growing worldwide fan base, she also just dropped a sizzling cover of the Amy Winehouse classic “Back To Black. Watch it HERE.

Quavo x Takeoff Present New Single & Music Video “Hotel Lobby”

Published

By

Over the years, Quavo and Takeoff have gone wild once or twice. However, they go wilder than ever on their new single and music video “Hotel Lobby”—available today via Quality Control Music Group/Motown Records.  Quavo and Takeoff reveal a woozy and wobbly banger on a whole different level..

Listen to “Hotel Lobby” HERE and watch the music video for “Hotel Lobby” HERE.

The airy cinematic production and ominous beat set the tone as Quavo and Takeoff trade one intoxicating bar after another. Co-directed by Keemotion and Quavo, the music video serves as an insane homage to the cult classic Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas directed by Terry Gilliam and co-starring Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro. In the clip, Quavo and Takeoff assume the roles of Raoul Duke and Dr. Gonzo cruising through the desert with a “mobile pharmacy” before pulling up to a Las Vegas hotel and barely passing the doors to check in. All kinds of psychedelic, tripped-out trap madness follows as they deliver the South’s first proper hip-hop homage to the late Hunter S. Thompson. It’s unlike anything either of these two multiplatinum GRAMMY® Award-nominated superstars have done either solo or as part of Migos!

It also paves the way for more music to come.

Takeoff recently dropped off “Crypto” with Rich The Kid. It has already amassed over 6.5 million Spotify streams and 4.7 million YouTube views on the music video. Receiving critical acclaim, HYPEBEAST proclaimed, “the new single sees the Migos rapper embrace his love for cryptocurrency and the fortune that it has brought him.

Meanwhile, Quavo served up the intense “Shooters Inside My Crib.” It posted up 6 million Spotify streams and 6.6 million YouTube views on the music video. Touted among the “Soundsystem 50, High Snobiety observed, Quavo skates over the Ayo-B-produced beat effortlessly teasing us about an upcoming project.” REVOLT added, ‘Shooters Inside My Crib’ sees the North Atlanta star harmonizing about past struggles and current successes.” Sports Illustrated summed it up best as “an absolute banger.” Not to mention, he joined NBA2K22 as a playable character and will star in a new action thriller Takeover.

Be on the lookout for more soon!
