Ooday – Pussy Demon

Multitalented Ooday offers mixtape for multiple audiences with ‘It Factor’ 

NEWBURGH, NY – Legacy … so it begins.  

Those are the first words on the new mixtape from New York artist Ooday, but they’re also the prophetic words for a young new artist whose unique sound and style are destined for greatness.  

Having survived the streets of Newburgh, New York – often the victim and the suspect of violence – Ooday not only found himself in prison for more than three years but also found a love for telling stories through music. Each song he creates takes you through a different journey, all of which is encapsulated on his mixtape “It Factor.” 

“What I was aiming for with this first tape is to show my versatility and that I can rap lyrically,” he said. “I can make songs kids want to listen to with rhythm and bounce to dance to. And I can make songs for the females to listen to and go to the clubs. This is a project that shows that I can do all these things musically. I put lyrics into catchy rhythms, and I can deliver both good rhythms and good content. That’s more than most other artists out there today.” 

 “Pussy Demon is one of the singles on the mixtape It’s a bouncy song perfectly suited for the clubs with lyrics that bounce back-and-forth between a man and a woman talking about a sexual encounter. A music video for this single is coming soon.  

Other singles also featured on the mixtape are “That’s Crazy” – a “real smooth gangster kind of song” and “Explosion” – an R&B track made especially for the ladies. 

Ooday said after he returned home from prison, music was something he focused on as a way to turn his life around. The more he put out singles and the more he built a fanbase, the more the buzz grew about his sound and style. Today, he’s developed a signature style that accommodates a wide range of audiences. 

“I want my music to be known for music lasts,” Ooday said. “It’s not temporary. I want to make music that people listen to repetitively. When they come back to it, they still get that feeling they got when they first heard it. I want to make music that is timeless and sticks around. That’s why my name is Ooday. When people hear my music, they’re gonna say, ‘Oooh! There he is!’” 

All of Ooday’s music is released under the independent label No Equal Management, which also features a handful of other artists and producers from the Newburgh area. He said there is a lot of music soon to be dropped from that crew.

Pastor K-ICE – My Spiritual Freak

Music, Videos

 South Florida minister educates people about love with new album ‘Sex, Money and Attitudes’ 

MIAMI, FL – Kenley La France – better known as Pastor K-Ice – is a man put on this earth to help people. This recording artist, speaker, author, sickle cell advocate, actor and certified life coach has a relentless passion to help society overcome its fundamental problems such as violence, hate, obsession with money and difficulty cultivating happy relationships. He addresses all of these issues and more with his latest book “Sex, Money and Attitudes” which he’s also making into an album. It’s part of his multi-phase plan to inspire people around the globe to have deeper, richer relationships. 

“I’m a life coach and love coach and relationship coach,” K-Ice said. “In addition to my book on Amazon, I’m also working on an audio book and I have a script for the movie and I’ll have the album and a podcast. My goal is to get a package deal for the entire project. The album will have skits that are inspired from the book and samples from the audio book. It’ll have some educational stuff in there, also. I was married when I started writing my book and I got interested in teaching people about relationships. I had a lot of girlfriends in the past and I’m married and I thought that I have a lot I could teach people about relationships. As I got deeper and deeper into teaching about it, I started exploring all kinds of things like spirituality and the benefits of deeper relationships. I believe that with everything going on in the world today, we need more love and more romantic love to help calm some stuff down that’s going on. It’s my mission to do that through the book and movie and music and podcast and everything. I’m not just an artist, I’m an educator.” 

The first single off the album is a song called “My Spiritual Freak.” It’s a love and romance song that could be played anywhere, K-Ice said – at a club, in the lounge, in a bedroom or even at a barbecue. As a minister who adheres to a higher calling, K-Ice said it’s often misrepresented that passion in the bedroom isn’t allowed. 

“Basically what I’m saying is that just because I’m freaky doesn’t mean I don’t believe in God,” he said. “My girl is a spiritual freak because she’s spiritual and she’s freaky.” 

The song is a blend of Pop and R&B for a vibe that is reminiscent of legendary artist Flow Rida. And though K-Ice describes himself as a rapper, it’s not the kind of hard-core rap that most people would associate with that genre. He has more of smooth sound that combines his ability to sing and rap.  

“At the end of the day, my music and everything I do, is about helping change lives,” he said. “That’s my whole mission. I want to touch lives and help people become better people. That’s my job. That’s what I’m on this earth for.”

RoyaltyPm – Spend It All

ME Blog, Music, Videos

RoyaltyPm drops hot new EP Summer is Over’ 

CHARLOTTE, NC – Bryson Adams – better known by his stage name RoyaltyPm – has just dropped a hot new EP that sets the right kind of vibe to get fans all over the world through the last days of summer.  

Appropriately titled “Summer is Over,” this nine-track EP pairs melodic sounds with RoyaltyPm’s smooth voice for a radio-ready vibe that is sure to offer plenty of ear candy for listeners from a wide range of places. That’s because RoyaltyPms music explores a wide range of experiences from his life that are stories that connect with other people. 

“A lot of stuff I speak on includes struggles and issues with my everyday life,” he said. “The vibe I’m going for with most of the music I make is to paint a vivid picture with my lyrics while still remaining sonically pleasing. I just want to be transparent and honest as possible while giving people something they can gravitate to and listen to in any setting.” 

The debut single from the EP is a song called “Spend It All.” RoyaltyPm released the song earlier this year and has gotten rave reviews. The song explores the high-end trends of the world and the influence designers have on culture and behaviors. The music video for the song which was recently released on his YouTube channel, brings this idea to the forefront by having RoyaltyPm perform next to a Ferrari that’s parked in front of a heavily graffitied wall in Houston, Texas.  

“It’s really vibrant, which is what the song is supposed to be,” RoyaltyPm said. “Basically, I’m saying I’m into designer things and all the nicer things – like nice cars and clothes. It’s up-tempo and upbeat because we’re trying to push that high-end vibe, and people have been really gravitating to that sound.” 

RoyaltyPm describes his signature sound as a combination of three different styles. There’s his street sound and stories, then there’s his unique vocal abilities that takes listeners on a journey from low octaves to high, and then there’s his ability to rap. He takes the influences of his home in Charlotte, North Carolina as well as the influences from nearby Atlanta, and then adds his own signature sound to the mix for a truly one-of-a-kind offering of new music. 

“There are people who rap but don’t sing good, or people who sing good but don’t rap good, or who rap good and sing good but don’t have anything real to say,” RoyaltyPm said. “I do all three. I’m eager for people to hear my music because they’ll get to a point where they know what to expect from me. My music is about creating a certain vibe. When you go somewhere – a party or whatever – I want to be the first guy you put on because I’m gonna set the tone. I want people to recall me without me having to put it in their faces… to remember my sound and to remember that I’m somebody they can relate to.”

Joshua Michael – Devour You in Flames

Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Promo, Videos

Joshua Michael inspires people struggling with pain by highlighting the joys of life in new single ‘House of Pain’ 

SAGINAW, MI – Joy and pain are two things that Joshua Michael has experienced in spades and as such, he’s uniquely equipped to explore the nuances of those dueling feelings through his unique brand of music. 

Overcoming Crohn’s disease has been a major part of Joshua’s journey, and he’s turned to things like boxing and physical fitness to help overcome that overwhelming pain. Through those things, he’s found job that he now wants to pass along to others with his latest single “House of Pain.”  

“It’s a song that introduces everything about me,” Joshua said. “My sound and the way I rap and my style – just everything. It’s about finding beauty within the beast as I invite everyone into my world (inner house). That was me, and I’m inviting people in who can relate to my music – come in to the house of pain where we can talk about life and ups and downs and the deeper roots that help grow the highest branches.” 

Joshua said he knows his music stands out from a crowded music industry because of the things he talks about with his songs. There aren’t many people in the industry exploring themes from his point of view especially in the way he does – from an inner exploration of the self.  

“I just represent self love,” he said. “When people hear my music I want them to know it always has a message and substance. It’s not something I’m just saying just for the sake of saying it. I’m really sending out messages that can really help people or soothe their pain. I want to stand for the people.” 

In addition to “House of Pain,” Joshua has also released “Devour You in Flames” which is another single about pain. He describes it as a song that encourages others to let go and let themselves heal from past wrongs. Like most of his music it’s a laid-back vibe that creates the perfect kind of atmosphere for introspection. 

“I’m not really an upbeat type of guy, so all my music is pretty chill and laid back,” he said. “This song has a suburban bassline to it and I sing a bit at the beginning before I rap and then come back to singing at the end.” 

Joshua said he plans to release new songs every two or three days for as long as he can. He’s created three mixtapes already – “House of Pain,” “Forbidden One” and most recently, “Joshua Michael.” All of his music is currently available across all streaming platforms.

5tink – Fall

Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Videos

Psychedelic sound serves to set up new artist 5tink with major success  

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – One of the hottest singles of the summer has come from Minneapolis-based artist 5tink, and as more fans are checking it out, it’s beginning to make waves around the globe. 

The song is called “Fall” and it’s the perfect showcase for this up-and-coming young artist. Its mixture of electronic beats that drip like drops of sound undeath a rapid high-hat rhythm pair perfectly with 5tink’s distressed vocals that have an electronic R&B vibe, all to come together to form a mash-up of psychedelic R&B and Rock undergirded with electronic overtones. 

“It’s definitely a psychedelic kind of experience,” 5stink said. “It’s the kind of sound that gets your attention when something is going on in your life and your mind is kind of busy. It invites you to stop what you’re doing and vibe with me for a little bit.” 

The song explores the ups and downs of a relationship, with inspiration pulled from his own current relationship with his girlfriend. The lyrics are ones that he said almost anyone can relate to and he knows that through sharing what he’s experiencing in his own life, he’ll be able to connect with many others around the world. 

“I just want to be known for making expressinyourself OK especially for guys,” 5tink said. “I grew up in the world of athletics which was dominated by stifling emotions and being ‘a man’ about stuff. Coming out of that for me with music has helped me to be less stressful and just express everything. That’s what I hope my music does for others as well – and of course that it sounds really good.” 

5tink’s career as a budding athlete was cut short when he had a major ankle injury while playing hockey. With his dreams dashed, he entered a depressed state and turned to drugs and alcohol. But during that dark time, he turned to music and poetry as a means of coping. He eventually made the decision to pursue that artistry and knew that music could be the thing that gave him the opportunity to be part of something bigger than himself. In late 2019, his girlfriend gave him the nickname “stink” and everything seemed to kind of click into place from that point forward. He launched his music career at the beginning of 2020 and all of his music that has been released to date can be found across all streaming platforms.

Anoopina – Cole

Industry Spotlight, Music, Videos

Sisters combine singing and rapping talents 
to create truly original sound 

LOS ANGELES, CA – Hip Hop girl group made up of LA-based sisters Anoo and Pina are turning heads left and right with their new music that pairs the ethereal vocals of Anoo with the stunning wordplay of Pina’s rapping. Their new single, “Cole” is the perfect example of the kind of originality they’re bringing to the music industry, displaying a low-key vibe with a sound unlike anything else out there today.  

“It’s a song about toxic relationships,” Pina said. “It’s hard to escape a fake world that was created for you because you can’t always see straight when you’re in the middle of it. You’re in such toxic energy. You’re in a love fantasy that isn’t real, it’s just what you’re dreaming.” 

Pina said their unique ability to tap into multiple genres is one of the main things that has helped them to stand out so far – especially internationally. The sisters, performing under the name Anoopina, have seen some major success overseas, most especially in Japan where they spent much of the previous year on tour. Originally fans of K-Pop, the sisters began to learn dances to some of their favorite Japanese artists and would post those videos online. That soon developed into performing covers, and those caught the attention of enough people in the industry that they were invited to perform in Japan. They immediately became known for bringing high energy on the stage while deftly demonstrating melodic harmonies and dope rap lyrics.  

“There’s not anyone like us right now,” Pina said. “We’re a combination of R&B and Trap in a lot of ways but really, we do a lot of genres. Anoo’s voice is very soulful and when I rap, it falls into Trap and new era. That’s how we bring a different aspect. Plus, we’re girls and we’re sisters, which is original.” 

The sisters grew up in a musical family with a father who was a rapper and an older brother who also became well-known along the West Coast for his rapping skills. Anoo showcased ability as a strong vocalist at a young age.  She was more self- taught until she joined the choir in middle school and high school.  Pina started rapping because of her dad and brother. Over time, the two began experimenting with singing and rapping, incorporating harmonies and feeding off each other’s energy and talents. Today, they use their music to bring positivity to the world. 

“We want to inspire people to do anything they want to do,” Anoo said. “We started from the bottom and we’ve worked our way up. It takes time, but people need to believe in themselves. Anything is possible. Just keep working really hard and keep going no matter what people say.” 

In addition to their single “Cole” which is currently available across all streaming platforms, Anoopina is preparing to drop two new singles later this summer which will feature American artist DaKiddFlowOne of the songs is called “Back Seat.
