Unwanted Begins with Clips of Greatness to Come 

PHILADELPHIA – Fifteen-year-old Unwanted is laying down some melodies and raps that have fans wanting more.  

Born and raised in the City of Brotherly Love, Unwanted takes a unique approach to enter the music industry. Instead of dropping a few singles, he is posting short clips of his raps varying in style and themes on Instagram and YouTube, all in the hopes of attracting the attention of hip-hop rapper fans – and it is working.  

“I got more to bring, and this is only a portion of what I can do,” said Unwanted. “There is more to come in the future. It’s somethin’ way bigger than what meets the eye. I’m different.” 

While other rappers are lacing their lyrics with profanity, Unwanted said it is a choice to rap clean and make sure that he never disrespects people, especially women. Perhaps his grandmother, who he affectionately refers to as Mom-Mom, had that influence on him. She has raised him since his birth. Hence the name “Unwanted” is about his biological parents, but not Mom-Mom and his fans.  

“When it comes to lyrical content from me, it’s like I’m always trying to get a point across, not only to the audience but myself as well,” he explained. 

By using a rhythm perfectly sprinkled with a cadence of a never-ending vibe, Unwanted creates a poetic melody with each rap.  

When asked what sets him apart from other young rappers, Unwanted said, “My lyrical content with my age, and the topics I’m talking about and the way I come across is me. When it comes to technical things like delivery and cadence, it’s just me. You know, it’s never fiction when it comes down to tracks.” 

Currently, Unwanted has hit on various topics for his songs, including his father, growing up in Philadelphia, and the life experiences he’s endured. Taking his cues from rappers like Eminem, Unwanted is drawn to songs that tell stories. “I love artists like that because I look at not only when it comes to certain tracks that they’ve created but their life and its life stories. They also represent themselves and their music, so that’s what’s so dope about it,” he added. 

However, when this teen reflects on his life and what he hopes to accomplish, Unwanted said, “I’ve wanted to be an artist for a long time. Honestly, as I kept doing it, I noticed that it made me happy, and now it’s like a piece of me. Someday, when I’m in a good position, maybe I can change a great amount of people and their perspectives on life.” 

The perspective is about to change – and soon – with the release of his first single, “Rodeo.” After getting a solid footing in the music industry, Unwanted is ready to take the next step.  

“Rodeo” will drop in a few weeks, showcasing Unwanted’s trademark cadence and metaphoric rhymes. With additional songs to follow, Unwanted is going to be a wanted man by his fans.

Rock Star Gang – Mobbin

Blog, Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Promo

RichardTheRockStar Grinds Out New Era Hip Hop with the Rockstar Gang 

JACKSON – Northern California native RichardTheRockStar (RTRS) has always been making music his way. From messing around with instruments in elementary school to home producing licks at age 15, RTRS creates music with no rules. Now, the artist, writer, producer, and businessman is making a splash with “Mobbin” as he redefines the hip-hop genre.  

“With New Era Hip Hop, we try to be culturally diverse and include people and sounds and add influences from all walks of life,” explained RTRS. “When hip hop came out, it just clicked on where it pulled its roots from. But it got to a point where people stopped trying to be original as much. Then it was cut-and-paste from there. We are trying to change that.” 

The “we” refers to is the Rockstar Gang, comprised of friends, Baked Beka and Jshxtta. The trio creates an eclectic mixture of sounds against New Era Hip Hop that forms an organic and unique sound showcasing their diversity and rebelliousness.  

Baked Beka, a social media influencer from the Bay Area, is a model and street survivor who has started rapping with the group. A longtime friendship with RTRS has blossomed into a confident and sassy rapper that fans adore.  

Jshxtta brings his talents to the studio by experimenting and mixing music to create the group’s authentic Bay Area sound. Coupled with RTRS’s energy and persistence, the Rockstar Gang’s sound is defined by trust, experimentation, and passion.  

“We all are free to be who we are,” said RTRS. “That’s the most important thing of being an artist. No matter what life puts in front of you, no matter what opposition, no matter what kind of scary circumstances, you must stick to yourself and your heart. When you do that, you build something more powerful than any of that. And that’s what the Rockstar Gang is.” 

Showcasing their talents, the trio’s latest single, “Mobbin,” is gaining popularity on streaming platforms, and its high-energy music video continues the Rockstar Gang’s story. 

“‘Mobbin’ is a vision that we’ve had as friends for a long time and just sticking to the plan to what works to the money,” explained RTRS.  

The “vision” is what sets “Mobbin” apart from other songs. It is the unity of the Rockstar Gang and their talents that light up during the track.  

“The way that we come together, especially on the third verse where we start going back and forth with what happened and sharing it, is telling a story together,” he said. “If you watch our videos in order, it’s a storyline, almost like a TV series, but it’s with our lives. You watch it, and it all ties together.” 

Their story began with the debut single, “Bananas,” and continues to showcase each artist’s unique attributes that they bring to the gang. Instead of being the cookie-cutting group where one artist is featured, the Rockstar Gang turns the spotlight on each member. Much like the Black-Eyed Peas, where the group comprises diverse members, the Rockstar Gang has a mix of talent, styles, and up-tempo energy that blends for music perfection.  

With six videos “in the tank” and awaiting release, RTRS said the gang is gearing up to take their music to the people as the touring dates crank up. Future dates in California, Arizona, and Oklahoma are just the beginning as they take New Era Hip Hop to fans.  

“I hope people enjoy what we put out there and are entertained by it,” he said. “We’re just trying to make something that people can sit back and smile, or at least just forget about their life, for a minute.”

Aznar – Nightless

ME Blog, Music, Promo, Videos

Deep House maestro Aznar offers mellow groove on new hit single ‘Nightless’ 

VALENCIA, SPAIN – When Rick Eckboch creates a song, he does it with human connection as his inspiration. Nothing brings more joy to the heart of this producer than seeing people dancing to a beat that started as an idea. His latest offering – a Deep House vibe called “Nightless” – is the perfect testament of that. 

With a mellow EDM foundation that makes good use of mid-tempo dance grooves, “Nightless” is a song with an easy, driving beat paired against ethereal synths that provide an intriguing counterpoint melody. It’s tantric and entrancing. It’s a song that takes the listener on a journey and doesn’t let go. 

“Sometimes when you’re in cold weather and driving home at night and it’s cold outside and you have the heat on in the car … that’s the feeling I’m trying to capture with this song,” Eckboch said. “That feeling of being safe and cozy and not wanting to leave the car no matter what because it feels so good in that moment. That’s exactly how I feel when I think about this song.” 

Beginning his journey as a music producer at the age of 12, his deep love for the craft has been a part of him since adolescence. As a producer of his own music and offering his skills as a ghost producer to enable others to express themselves, Rick’s passion is leaving a lasting impact on the people who come into contact with his beats. Honing his profound mixing and mastering skills through many years of dedicated practice has equipped him to produce a variety of hit tracks. 

Rick’s first love was Minimal and Tech House; before online music streaming. Rick would visit a local record store in his hometown, Valencia, Spain, buying vinyl records to access his favorite genres of music. The owner of the vinyl shop was a producer and well-known DJ, Hector Alias, who gave Rick his first introduction to music production and DJing. Hector, who has since passed, was formative to Rick’s story and inspired him to maintain a caliber of work that would make him proud.  

Today Rick operates under the stage name Aznar. Though he makes his home in Spain, he also frequently travels to the U.S. and the Dominican Republic, and has developed strong relationships with other artists and industry insiders all over the world. He has plenty of experience mixing and mastering for top Latin artists such as Rochy RD, Quimico UltramegaLírico en La Casa, Ceky ViciniShelow Shaq, and many other Dominican artists.  

Since building his professional studio in the past yearAznar has shifted from the Latino market to producing primarily Deep House. An encounter with cancer hasn’t stopped him – if anything, it has helped inspire more profound self-expression. He has, in fact, found that his connection with Deep House is the best way to expose his feelings and inspire an authentic connection with those who follow him. 

“If someone is happy with my music, that’s all I want,” he said. “I’m not trying to leave a big legacy or anything. I just want to help people enjoy life.” 

Aznar’s music is accessible on all reputable streaming and purchasing platforms. His mission is to move people worldwide and leave an indelible mark on them through his music, which traverses all boundaries. With his current global reach, he aims to continue expanding his audience as he consistently releases new music and strives to create a sense of unity amongst society with every new beat that he puts out.

Becktoria – I Like It Like That

Blog, Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Promo

Becktoria’s Latest Single ‘I Like It Like That’ Climbs the Charts 

LOS ANGELES – Model, actress, and artist Becktoria is putting her mark on the music industry with her latest single, “I Like It Like That,” – and fans are loving it.  

Born in Burma, raised in England, and now residing in California, Becktoria was influenced by Celine Dion, Sia, and The Chainsmokers. Mix that trio, and you have a unique new sound second to only Becktoria’s pop and indie sound.  

Her latest single, “I Like It Like That,” reached the Billboard Top 40 Indicator Chart, charted on numerous other charts, and got regular airplay on web and radio channels. Internationally, Becktoria is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the industry as she blazes a path destined for stardom.  

“My goal in life is to help people to find their happiness and inner peace and just love life,” said Becktoria. “Make the most of life and live every day to its fullest.” 

Spoken from experience, Becktoria’s past includes a successful modeling career that earned her beauty pageant titles, a Bachelor’s degree in biomedical sciences, and a Master’s degree. If that was not enough, Becktoria has worked with artists across the globe, which has propelled her popularity worldwide.  

When asked why she chose music instead of acting or modeling, she replied, “I’ve always been passionate and been inspired by music. I studied music at a young age and played multiple instruments in many orchestras and ensembles, including singing in the choir and the school pop band. Halfway through studying biomedical sciences, I realized I wanted to pursue music professionally. I wanted to do something more creative and how I could express my feelings. Music was always there for me.” 

Experimenting with her first EP, Becktoria based her songs on love and breakups by using metaphors throughout each song. “It was based on my dreams, and then I just related it to love and real life.” 

However, her latest EP, “Goodbye & Hello,” demonstrates her growth as an artist, as fans have deemed it her best yet. The straightforward lyrics are coupled with pop melodies and Becktoria’s signature sound, making each track relatable. The entire EP is taken from Becktoria’s life.  

“The EP has a couple of different meanings, like saying goodbye to my relationship and hello to a new relationship. All the songs are structured in order. So, the first thing is, I said goodbye to my love, and then the next one is finding new love and loving love. And then going through some problems with the new relationship and then breaking up again,” she explained. 

Looking back at the EP and its five songs, Becktoria knows her fans can relate to saying farewell to a relationship and going through the sadness and joy of finding new love and the roller coaster of emotions it brings.  

Taking inspiration from artists such as Katy Perry, Bebe Rexha, and Lizzo, Becktoria hopes to inspire listeners with her music. Her infectious pop and indie-influenced sounds are perfect for the dance floor, singing in the car, slow dancing with your lover, and looking ahead to your best life yet to be lived.  

Make sure to stay connected to Becktoria on all platforms for new music, videos, and social posts.

ML Underwood – BOS$ PLAYA (ft. Aya Ito)

Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Promo, Videos

ML Underwood Continues to Reign as a “Boss Playa” 

GARY, INDIANA – Hip hop artist and producer ML Underwood is back on the scene and dropping beats like never before with his latest single “Bos$ Playa,” featuring Aya Ito. Racking up more than 3,700 views after just hours of its premiere on YouTube, “Bos$ Playa” is cementing ML Underwood as the boss.  

“Millionaires, they make a lot of money, work hard, like to smoke and have a nice drink, and just celebrate success – that is a boss playa. And I’m a boss, I’ve always been a boss playa,” said ML Underwood.  

When asked further about his latest single, Underwood explains, “It just lays the groundwork for how a real man proves himself in this world we live in right now. Instead of snitching on people and bringing us down to save themselves or hating on another person, I try to tell people to stay away from things of that nature. It is about being positive really and at the same time being a gangsta.” 

While the “Bos$ Playa” video is filled with living the high life as a player, Underwood’s latest single is more than just glitz and glamour. Using LeBron James and the late Kobe Bryant as examples, Underwood said, “They are on the team, and how they lead the team (is) they work together with a team to win, and that’s how I live my life. I’m a boss playa out here in the field of life, and it’s the way you move through it so you can win.” 

That mentality of playing to win and win as a team makes Underwood stand out in the industry. However, Underwood is not a newcomer to the music industry. As CEO of the entertainment group MyLife Entertainment, he is a well-known and respected talent manager. From offering motivational speaking, life coaching, and philanthropy, Underwood brings out the best in artists and himself while taking the hip-hop industry to the next highest level.  

Looking at Underwood’s lengthy list of accomplishments, one may think he’s always had an easy life – that could not be farther from the truth.  

While in prison for five years, Underwood had plenty of time to focus and get his head and mind straight. “I realized I always had the talent and that I was living through other people,” he said. “So I just said, ‘stop living through others and live on my own. I am the artist, and I’ve always had the talent.’” 

That revelation set the groundwork for his future success in the studio and community, with The United Prisoner Association, which aims to help inmates turn their lives around and focus on fulfilling their dreams away from crime. Never straying far from his Gary, Indiana roots, Underwood gives back to his community. Now living in the suburbs of Crown Point, Indiana in the famous Doubletree Estates, he’s proving that he is deeply embedded in promoting and uplifting the next generation.  

“I use my music to empower the African American community to follow the light and find success in their lives,” he said. “My music is a force that is acquiring worldwide recognition in African American music. My life is serving as a source of inspiration for those who are failing to turn their dreams into reality, and my music is encouraging people to take a stand and fight to live lives exactly the way they want to.”

Kayos – Ce Ce

Blog, Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Promo

Kayos showcases chameleon-like ability to fuse any sound and style on upcoming new EP ‘Stay Tuned’ 

LOS ANGELES, CA – What comes from the heart, reaches the heart. And if there’s one thing fans of Kayos’ music can be certain, it’s that he creates heart-felt music. 

Born Demontray Bullard, this Los Angeles-based artist is a luminary in the making. Crafted from the struggle and grind, this young up-and-coming musician is wiser than his years and stronger than the eroded tears of the mothers and grandmothers of his neighborhood in South Central LA. His state name, Kayos (pronounced “chaos”), is a deliberate departure from his birth name. He adopted the moniker as a nod to the environment from which he evolved. 

“That’s my upbringing, but not my pathology,” he said. “As artists, we have to be real about the stories we tell and the pictures we pain through our lyrics. There are too many people out here rapping about stuff that’s not their reality, and that’s reckless. Tell your truth, and those who can relate to that truth will relate to your lyrics. You can bridge genres and communities through music and lyrics, and that’s my goal.” 

That transparent outlet of artistic freedom is set to challenge minds and connect with an ever-widening global fanbase when he released his latest EP “Stay Tuned” this fall. Featuring different style and vibes from his deep well of talent, the project is one that ties together all the various pieces of his personality and past experiences. It’s a sneak peek of what’s to come in the future, he said, while at the same time serving as a highly entertaining body of work. 

The debut single from the project is a song called “CeCe Song,” which is set to drop by mid October. “CeCe Song” is an up-tempo, good party vibe that talks about the LA life while fusing together that hot Atlanta sound with West Coast swag. Produced by super producer RicK Rude, the song showcases Kayos’ standout style and impressive flow, and demonstrates an otherworldly ability to pain pictures with his lyrics. 

“I want to expose who I am and what I stand for, but also be able to paint a picture that other people can relate to,” he said. “Whether it’s pain or joy or something that’s motivational – I want you to feel every song. If it’s a party song, when you hear it I want you to feel like you want to party. If there’s something testing my life and I rap about it, I want you to be able to resonate with it right when you hear it. That’s the reason I set the EP the way I did – so that you get a sample of six different styles and sounds and see that my style is not tied into one genre.” 

Anyone who listens to Kayos’ music will discover that he’s an artist with a personality with a lot of nuance. He’s someone who can be different depending on the environment, and his music reflects that. He’s like a chameleon, and the songs he creates reflects that lifestyle.

Princess Rock – Don’t Sleep

Blog, Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Promo, Videos

15-year-old Princess Rock shows maturity beyond her years with hype new single ‘Don’t Sleep’ 

PHILADELPHIA, PA – When it comes to balancing classic rap with contemporary musicality, not many artists today can do the job. But one on-the-rise rapper named Princess Rock has already done it.  

At only 15-years-old, Princess Rock is etching her own place in rap royalty. Her first single “Doo Wop” demonstrated a flawless ability with natural flow, and has made her one of the young artists to watch on the East Coast. And now with her latest single, “Don’t Sleep,” she’s set to take her talents to the international stage in major ways. With vocals and songwriting prowess like few others in the game, this talented young musician is ready to take the world by storm.  

“Don’t Sleep” is the third single from this fast-rising young artist. It’s an energetic, hype song that lets people know who she is and showcases just a small portion of the potential she has to be an international superstar. Audiences who hear the song will see almost immediately that how she carries herself is beyond her years. In a music industry laden with female sex symbols and scathing lyrics, Princess Rock offers a refreshing performance that’s equal parts entertaining and intriguing. With her it’s more in the things she doesn’t endorse and doesn’t say than in the things she does, and that’s intentional. She knows that a lot of times artists can turn people off by what they say. But she’s a young artist who is purposeful with her lyrics and intentional about her presence and reputation. 

“Princess Rock fits me because as a young black woman I feel that I’m royalty, and the rock adds an edge to it,” she said. “I make hype music and the styles that I mix with that go perfectly together, but at the end of the day I want to be known for being positive and having good morals. I’m conscious of how I carry myself and my message. All of my music has a message of being confident in who you are. You can achieve anything you put your mind to. It’s going to take hard work, but if you want to do it, you can do it – no matter what you go through.” 

That sentiment is the foundation for her latest single. In many ways she’s telling the world not to sleep on her as she’s about to show audiences all around the globe just how great of an artist she is. And as she does so, she encourages others to embrace that kind of confidence and put in the work to show others that they shouldn’t be slept on, either.

The Royaies – Princesa

Blog, Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Videos

Multi-cultural power group The Royaies fuse Latin-inspired R&B with Reggaeton on debut hit single ‘Princesa’ 

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA – The Royaies are a new and wildly versatile music group based out of Toronto. Comprised of two sets of brothers – Shyon (23) and Axel Kain (19), and Arvin The Poet (20) and Elijah (24) – who are cousins who share the same last name. Having explored music and pursued careers as artists individually for many years, the four came together in 2020 to form a group and are now ready to release their first single “Princesa.” 

The Latin-inspired R&B groove is a sexy, slow jam that just feels good. With beautiful harmonies laid over the top of Latin-inspired guitar riffs, the song is immensely enjoyable and sets the perfect mood for a romantic night with a lover. It’s a song that perfectly introduces the group’s talent and versatility to the world, while also offering individual moments that display each member of the group’s individual personality. Arvin the Poet, for instance, has more of a melancholy viewpoint of lost love, whereas Axel offers insight into those butterflies that come when you make eye contact with a beautiful girl across the room. Elijah’s verses are more melodic and represent his softer personality and his ability to connect with listeners through strong emotion. And Shyon’s lyrics showcase a charisma and confidence that helps push the single beyond anything else being played across airwaves today. 

“It started off as a love song to all the women in Toronto, but it grew into something that people can connect with worldwide,” Shyon said. “We do it in a unique style – really with multiple different delivery styles and different phrasing and vocals based off each of our own personalities. More than anything we wanted to show with this first song that we can make that Pop, Reggaeton kind of hit. But it does not stop here. We have so much more music that offers completely different vibes that we’ll be releasing soon, as well.” 

Shyon and Axel started the journey as artists growing up in the thriving music scene of Toronto, learning from legends like Drake, The Weeknd, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and Roy Woods. About four years ago Arvin the Poet and Elijah moved from the Middle East to Toronto, and in the years since the four have been exploring new sounds and developing their own signature style. They display an impressive versatility born from not only exploring different types of music, but by fully immersing themselves in genres from all around the world. It’s a driving factor in the unique sound and style they bring to the table.  

“The throwback influences of the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s can’t be ignored, as well as the value of international inspiration,” Shyon said. “We take great pride in being inspired by different cultures and global artists, as well.” 

Today the Royaies have become a group poised to make real noise in the industry. They’re hungry, and their desire to succeed at all levels and walks of life will soon become apparent to an ever-widening global fanbase. Not only do they have the talent to back up their dreams, but they have a relentless drive that won’t allow them to settle for anything less than what they want.

GeoMike122 – Above

Blog, Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Promo

Teacher by day, musician by night, GeoMike offers intriguing insight on catchy new single ‘Above’ 

NEW YORK, NY – Electronic-driven, low-key rock vibes set against a tightly-reined frenetic energy are capturing the attention of new audiences all over the world with the new single “Above.” Coming from East Coast artist GeoMike122, the song showcases this talented musicians syncopated rap style over the top of a rapid-fire high-hat and ethereal synths for a sound that truly caresses the senses. It’s a song that makes you itch with energy. Reminiscent of a vibe made famous by David Bowie, the song explores the after-effects of a toxic and abusive relationship and offers listeners a sense of hope that there’s something brighter at the end of something tragic.  

“It was inspired by my own experience of overcoming a toxic, abusive relationship,” GeoMike said. “In the song I compare it to a fog because that’s how I felt – like I was in a mental state of fox. The partner I was with was more negative and cynical than anything else, and it took a lot of light and faith to get me through that. In the song I talk about how the fog was burned off by the sun, and in the end I rose above those experiences. I hope that my ex finds faith and searches the divine to find something not of this world – something ‘above.’” 

The song is the first off an upcoming album called “Michael Ciolino,” which is set to release on Oct. 22. It’s a project that this up-and-coming artist has been working on for the past few years in his spare time when not teaching third grade to students in the New York area. He has always had a love of music, and over the years has dabbled with different sounds and styles. Along the way he’s created a style that is certainly unique – something that he refers to as “Sound Pop.” It’s a sound that features an impressive blend of instrumentation and lyrics in ways that are equal parts intriguing and entertaining.  

“I’m trying to have my music match where I want to go in life,” Mike said. “It’s inspiring and motivating and has you question things. It’s challenging. As a teacher – and really, just as my personality – I’m always questioning things. I understand why boxes exist, but I like to think outside the box, and my music is all about advocating for you to find your own voice. I think it’s really important to have that. Music has always been inspiring to me in that way, and that’s what I want to create and provide for others. That’s why I say it’s Sound Pop – it’s genre-less. I’m a teacher who loves doing this because I love motivating people and entertaining people. We’re in a cycle where people want something that’s more original and authentic, and that’s what I hope to bring to the table.”
