Published

on

Quickly rising to fame, much buzzed-about LA rapper Kalan.FrFr releases his new single “Popstar” via First Class Entertainment and Roc Nation Records. 

LISTEN TO “POPSTAR” HERE

Providing a boastful insider’s view into his journey to fame and success, Kalan delivers his signature melodic flow over production provided by frequent collaborators and multi-platinum producers Bankroll Got It (Latto, Flo Milli, Coi Leray) and Diego Ave (Post Malone, YG, King Von). When discussing the first single from his forthcoming untitled EP, the Compton native said, “The concept behind the song is that anyone can be a pop star; you just have to wake up and feel like one. It’s a belief in one’s self, a feeling that you are shining regardless of what space you are in; you don’t have to be a rapper to be a popstar, I just happen to be one!”

In 2021, Kalan.FrFr announced his signing to Roc Nation Records and shortly after released his project, TwoFr 2, which spawned the popular singles “Never Lose You” and “Scoring.” The project housed features from the likes of Lil Durk, Mozzy, Stunna4Vegas, and Maeta to name a few, and received over 107 million streams worldwide. Kalan has also become one of LA’s most praised MCs with early acclaim from Pitchfork, The FADER, XXL, DJBooth, and People celebrating his unique sound and sharp lyricism. To close out his breakout year, the West Coast artist went on the explosive, nationwide “TwoFr” Tour, where he had surprise star-studded guests including Blxst, 1TakeJay, Mario, Rubi Rose, 808 Mafia, and more

In celebration of the release of “Popstar,” Kalan will hit the road on his 7-city “Never Lose You” Tour, which kicks off on April 28th in Orlando and makes stops in Atlanta, New York, and Houston. With his unapologetic presence and boisterous west coast flow, Kalan is redefining what it means to be a Popstar in and out of the booth!

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

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.
