PineappleCiti Debuts Her Swag-filled Single, “I Need A Coupe”

New Jersey’s very own PineappleCITI has officially released her single, “I Need A Coupe”. The swag-filled track highlights the emerging emcee’s flow, laced with idioms of perseverance and financial insecurity; while the chorus swoons over a classical-infused production—earmarked by the 808’s and keys. 
Make no mistake, though you may be new to PineappleCiti, she’s no newcomer. Holding critically acclaimed writing credits for Kelly Rowland and Yo Gotti, while simultaneously bolstering partnerships with Ciroc Studios, Red Bull Music, and now VYDIA, CITI knows what it takes to cut through and delivers that same energy with “I Need A Coupe”.

Ginette Claudette Releases Her New Track “Love Me Back”

R&B songstress and recording artist Ginette Claudette releases her new track “Love Me Back” today via Summerchild Records/RED MUSIC. The honest and vulnerable track will appear on her forthcoming project On To Something due out November 30th. Click here to listen.

“On most of the records, I’m having a conversation with myself. Creating this project has been a very therapeutic journey of self-discovery for me as a woman and an artist. On this new project, I start to peel back a lot of layers on a lot of the things I have been self-conscious about for so long and, until now, have held inside,” expresses Ginette Claudette. “For the first time, I was able to unapologetically say what I wanted while disregarding the outside pressures that I’ve faced for so long. And I am excited to share it with the world,” says Ginette Claudette on the project.
Three years since her last EP All The Way Back, Claudette took time off from releasing music, tucked away in the studio where she focused her energy on herself and songwriting. In 2018, she made her return with fresh, new music that leads with even bolder statements and leans more deeply into her R&B roots. The announcement of her highly-anticipated project On To Something is proof of her resilience.

Claudette was dubbed the cover of TIDAL’s Rising Latin playlist where her previously released track “Twisted” debuted. The track has since garnered over 1.4 million streams and reached #25 on Vevo’s R&B Wave playlist. Her single “True” also gained strong momentum after being added to Apple Music’s The Crossover playlist and Spotify’s R&B Movement playlist. It debuted at #8 for as most added as Rhythmic on Mediabase.
Music runs through Ginette Claudette’s DNA. At the age of three, Claudette took after her mother, a famous singer in the Dominican Republic, and gravitated towards dreams of stardom. She began performing on stages across her native New York, whether at her fifth grade graduation in Washington Heights or at a talent showcase at the legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem. She began taking guitar lessons across the street at an old church and penning songs inspired by her surroundings. If constructing her music while juggling school wasn’t enough, Claudette would also shuffle to Disney auditions after class with her mom. Inherent hustle aside, Claudette dealt with the loss of her father at a young age, and sister to an illness as a teenager. After going to a small, 100-kid performing arts high school in the Bronx, Claudette was on the verge of being admitted into college when she decided to take a year to go hard and pursue music full time. She then finessed studio time with well-connected producers, attracting the ears of several labels with her soulful YouTube covers and eventually signing with Universal Motown Records in 2010.
While she got to work with revered talent like Babyface, Rico Love, Pop & Oak and more, her album would never reach the public and she parted ways with Motown in 2012. Claudette went on to release three projects, independently enlisting the talents of August Rigo, filled with romantic R&B and swoon-worthy pop gems. She has toured internationally with hip-hop/EDM group, Far East Movement. Since her last release, Ginette has grown up and into the music she’s making. In 2018, Claudette is just getting warmed up. This go-round, she is making bolder statements with her music and leaning more into her R&B roots. Take the album’s latest track “Twisted” for example where she lets her independent, around-the-way girl attitude shine. Claudette’s resilience and positive demeanor serve as a testament to the type of artist she is.

Dave East & Moneybagg Yo Join Reazy Renegade On “Teller”

Reazy Renegade has been behind the boards on his fair share of bangers, but “The Renegades” producer is now ready to break away and shine as a solo artist, a route that many beat maestros are beginning to take. For his first act, Reazy taps a pair of artists he’s previously worked alongside in Harlem’s Dave East and the burgeoning Memphis native Moneybagg Yo for “Teller.” The bristling track debuts with Billboard on Friday (Nov. 16).

“Around this time last year, Dave East dropped a project called ‘Karma,’ on which I produced a track on it titled ‘Salty’ that featured MoneyBagg Yo. I remember thinking to myself, the contrast of these guys voices on the same track is impeccable,” Reazy says. “Wheels got to turning and I knew we had to spark another collab.”

Just a few months later, the makings of “Teller” began to come together. “I remember East went to Atlanta and ended up in the studio with Bagg. After sending them a few records, this particular joint stood out to me. I put some final touches on the single, shortly after inking an artist deal with SONY/Orchard and the rest is history,” the Starvation producer adds.

The debut single sets Reazy’s plans for a producer-album officially in motion for 2019. The former We The Best signee’s rugged street production meshes seamlessly with the gritty style of rapping seen from lyrical assassins in Dave East and Moneybagg Yo.

Mobb Deep’s Prodigy Joins Producer EyeonEyez On “Out Queens”

In 2017, Producer EyeOnEyez connected with Hip Hop legend and icon Prodigy to record “Out Queens.” Sadly, Prodigy passed prematurely soon after. Just like his other work, this final track “Out Queens” utilizes EyeOnEyez signature sound: lush synths, haunting melodies, kamikaze trap drums and melt-your-face-off 808’s.

In addition, EyeOnEyez will be releasing a visual for “Out Queens” shortly in advance of his upcoming full length album featuring Wu Tang Clan, Rick Ross, Gucci Mane, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, as well as a few up and coming artists from his own label.
