Logic - the 27-year-old Grammy nominated (Song Of The Year and Best Music Video) rapper born Sir Robert Bryson Hall II - burst onto the music scene through a series of mixtapes that led to a significant, rabid underground fan base. His tapes -Young, Broke, and Infamous; Young Sinatra; Young Sinatra: Undeniable; Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever – garnered millions of downloads and streams, jumpstarting a worldwide tour all before signing a record deal with Def Jam Recordings in 2014.
In 2017, Logic continues to raise the bar with the release of his third full-length album Everybody. The album touches on societal issues that affect us all on a daily basis, including anxiety, depression, race relations and more. Everybody features a wide-array of artists and personalities including Neil deGrasse Tyson, Killer Mike, Chuck D, Alessia Cara and Khalid and has become his most commercially successful album to date with 250,000 in first week sales debuting at #1 on the Billboard 200 Chart.
1-800-273-8255, the lead single off Everybody, which spotlights mental health and suicide prevention awareness, has become Logic’s highest charting single to date: #3 on Billboard Hot 100, Top 10 at Pop Radio, #1 on Spotify, #5 on Spotify Global song with over 500 Million Streams across all platforms. Referencing as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number, the song has also gone double platinum by the RIAA. Logic stole the show at the MTV VMAs with his powerful performance of 1-800-273-8255 and on “The Ellen Show” where Ellen host called him “the voice of his generation.”
Before the afterparty, there was a girl called Charli. She learned the truth about romance. She broke the rules and she loved it. She made the world fancy again. Now it's 2016 and Charli has sharpened her unique voice and vision. XCX is the symbol she wears round her neck, a signature, something to shout back when the crowd goes 'Charli'!
24 years old and a music industry native, Charli XCX has acquired a taste for platinum, double platinum, and 4x platinum -- sometimes taking a break to enjoy gold, international Top 10, and Hot 100 number ones. And she's charitable too, donating addictive toplines to those who need to score a hit. With a raw, honest energy behind every hook and drop, Charli is the life and soul behind the face of pop.
As a songwriter, performer, label owner, and next-level superstar, Charli XCX turns us all into angels. Close your eyes and enter a world of pure fun, intoxicating melodies, and nonchalant empowerment. Love potions come in all shapes and sizes. There's a wish on everybody's lips and a genie inside every bottle. It's the sound you want to hear before tonight turns into tomorrow.
A R I Z O N A:
In 2016, the longtime friends began to make waves throughout the music industry. Augmenting a bond that dates back to their college days in Boston and continued through stints living and recording in Los Angeles and London, the musicians hunkered down in Jersey, uniting under the moniker A R I Z O N A.
“We had all been through the ringer with music,” he sighs. “We got home and decided to do something with absolutely no bounds, requirements, goals, or marks. We just wanted to create for the sake of creating.”
“Our style is alternative pop music where a lot of the melodies and songwriting aren’t overthought,” says Zach. “We don’t try to be left-of-center. Writing pop music comes naturally to us, because it’s a way to be honest and raw without having to dig too deep for the meaning. Sonically, we have so much fun in the studio. People can take the lyrics literally or apply their own experiences.”
The name A R I Z O N A places the focus directly on the music. Inspired by a joke Dave made about Nate’s “Arizona” hat in the studio, it made perfect sense.
“When people listen to our music, we just want to make sure they feel good.”
