Dua and Calvin eye fifth week at Number 1 while Childish Gambino and Shawn Mendes advance on Top 10

Dua Lipa and Calvin Harris dance collaboration One Kiss is currently looking good for a potential fifth week at the top of the Official Singles Chart, but with Ariana Grande climbing back up one place in today’s Official Chart Update with No Tears Left To Cry, will there be an upset when the chart is announced on Friday?

New entries and high climbers

Last week’s highest new entry from Childish Gambino – the alter ego of actor Donald Glover – looks set to storm the Top 10 this week, as This is America rises eight places to Number 6.

Canadian singer Shawn Mendes looks nailed on for a fourth Top 10, as In My Blood aims for a new peak, zooming fourteen slots to 7 after its acoustic version was released, and David Guetta and Sia’s Flames has a shot at going Top 10 for the first time, rising two places to 9.

With their fifth studio album Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino looking set to take the Number 1 album spot this Friday, Arctic Monkeys’ tracks make an impact on the Official Singles Chart too, with Four Out of Five (12), Star Treatment (13), and One Point Perspective (17) all making a Top 20 showing at this stage.

Girls, Rita Ora’s collaboration with Cardi B, Bebe Rexha and Charli XCX, starts at 18, and there could be a 13th Top 40 for Selena Gomez on the way – Back to You is new at 37.

Eurovision Song Contest: SuRie aiming for Official Chart Top 40 placing with Storm

UK’s 2018 Eurovision Song Contest hopeful SuRie could make up for her disappointing night in Lisbon on Saturday with a Top 40 hit. Despite finishing 24th out of a possible 26 countries while battling a stage invasion, Storm is in at 32 on today’s Official Chart Update.

Outside of the Top 40, Netta, the Eurovision winner from Israel, currently occupies Number 57 with Toy, and runner-up Eleni Foureira of Cyprus is at Number 72 with Fuego.

Kobalt Signs Childish Gambino

Kobalt, a music and technology company built for artists, songwriters, publishers and labels as an alternative to the traditional music business model, announced that it has signed Grammy award winning, actor, comedian, writer, director, producer, singer, songwriter, rapper, and DJ, Donald Glover, a.k.a., Childish Gambino. The worldwide agreement includes publishing administration, including global synch and creative support services, for all of Childish Gambino’s future songs after the Awaken, My Love! album. In addition, Kobalt has signed Wolf + Rothstein, Glover’s musical teams of collective songwriters and artists for publishing administration, global synch and creative support services.

Said Kobalt Music SVP, Creative, Al McLean, of the deal, “Donald is one of those rare multi-talented artists who can do it all. It’s an honor to sign Donald and Wolf + Rothstein Collective to the Kobalt family.”

Emmy-, Golden Globe-, and Grammy-winning actor, writer, comedian, DJ, and rapper Donald Glover broke into pop culture mainstream first on the hit TV sitcom Community after serving on the writing staff of both The Daily Show and 30 Rock. In August 2011, he signed to Glassnote Records under his rap moniker Childish Gambino and has since released two albums. Glover also currently stars in the FX series Atlanta, which he also created and occasionally directs.

Operating out of Temple Studios in Los Angeles, Wolf + Rothstein is the creative agency comprised of Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Donald Glover, Wolf Taylor, and Fam Rothstein, all whom worked with the band that helped compose the critically acclaimed Awaken My Love! Released December 2, 2017, Awaken My Love! and the chart-topping hit single “Redbone” are nominated for five Grammy Awards: Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Traditional R&B Performance (winner), Best R&B Song, and Best Urban Contemporary Album. Childish Gambino is set to perform on Saturday Night Live on May 5, 2018.

“Wolf and Rothstein is excited to partner with Kobalt for publishing,” said Wolf Taylor of Wolf + Rothstein. “We’re looking forward to growing the roster together.”

‘Atlanta’ Season 2 Is Off to a Weird, Perfect Start

The premiere of the FX hit show’s new chapter reacquaints us with familiar faces and introduces some exciting new ones, including Katt Williams and his unconventional house pet

Written By |  

Even in a TV landscape characterized by peak drama and rare authenticity, critics and awards bodies and audiences all seemed to agree that the first season of Atlanta was exceptionally good, for many reasons. One of the show’s most impressive tricks was its insistence on subverting expectations at every available turn, whether those expectations were set by viewers, studio execs, or by Donald Glover himself. “Twin Peaks for rappers” fits neatly into 140 characters, and the conceit (a Princeton dropout, an aging rapper, and a space cadet tumble headlong through the Atlanta rap scene) seemed simple enough, but Atlanta was more ambitious than its creator’s elevator pitch in execution. And way weirder. There was an invisible car. There was a sketch comedy half-hour. Justin Bieber was black. Quavo went all Russell Baze on a dude in the woods using a hunting rifle he named “Percy.”

But you don’t need me to tell you that Atlanta was good and memorable. Now that “Robbin’ Season” (which means more and sounds cooler than “Season 2”) has arrived, the show will speak for itself once more. And we’ll all see what we loved about it in the first place: that Atlanta is still playing straw caterpillar with reality; that the show is still funny but not that kind of funny; that its choices are still thrillingly specific; that its use of guest stars still feels both whimsical and effective.

The problem is that I want to talk only about Katt Williams. We may talk about some other things by accident, but Williams—who is gloriously, hilariously, tragically pressed in the premiere—is the most pressing topic.

I guess we have to talk about where we left the principle characters; Atlanta has been off the air since the Season 1 finale in November 2016. Alfred, known to the internet as Paper Boi (Brian Tyree Henry), dropped a mixtape with a solid street single that his cousin-manager Earn (Glover) pledged to help transform into a full-on rap career. By roll credits, Earn’s only sort of succeeded at growing Paper Boi’s reach. Earn’s only sort of succeeded at a few things: keeping a roof over his head, getting his daughter into a decent school, working things out with his baby mama (Van, played by Zazie Beetz), figuring out what it is he wants out of life. The only thing he’s done successfully for sure is befriend Darius (Lakeith Stanfield), and thank God, because who among us wouldn’t want a friend like Darius?

If Season 1 ended on a note of fragile optimism, the premiere of “Robbin’ Season”feels defined by a simmering panic, like the anxiety that stampedes back in once a high wears off, like the dread of knowing you’ll have to either make decisions or have them made for you soon. The season premiere opens with Earn getting forced out of the storage unit he had been living in, and it’s three full minutes before any other familiar characters are shown. There’s a detached cold open that follows two new young men around the twist of a boring, gray winter day that suddenly turns violent. They play FIFA, they talk music, they decide that they’re hungry, they go to Mrs. Winner’s—a fictive version of the real chicken and biscuits spot, and one that doubles as a drug front. They rob the place, it turns bloody, it sets the tone: This is still Atlanta, but the stakes are irretrievably higher than they were two years ago. Disaster strikes elsewhere when Alfred, on house arrest, sends Earn over to his Uncle Willy’s after having received a call from Uncle Willy’s girlfriend, Yvonne, who said that Willy had “kidnapped” her. As it turns out, Uncle Willy is Katt Williams.

And he looks good, but, crucially, not great. At least as bad as when he retired from stand-up six years ago on KOMO 4 Seattle News dressed in a Kurt Cobain tee and ski goggles, and on purpose. Since his mid-2000s success, Williams’s fall from grace has been exceedingly long and noisy; in 2016 alone he was arrested four times for everything from “criminal damage to property” to sucker-punching a seventh-graderduring a friendly pickup soccer game. He’s back to doing stand-up now, though. He released a Netflix special in mid-January, Great America, where he talks into a golden microphone about racial tension and Trumpism, but also about the ways in which life—and he has lived a life—changed him.

It makes sense that someone like Williams would wash up on an absurdist show preoccupied with personal transition, but it’s still a surprise when he presses his face up against the screen door, and remarkable that his inclusion works so seamlessly. And so well.

To the extent that time is real in Atlanta, it’s mid-afternoon by the time we meet Willy, and he is still wearing a bathrobe. Think of him as a much older Money Mike; the pimping is mostly dead and the alligator shoes are just house slippers now, although he does still have the alligator. A full-grown Caiman. Really.

The best of Williams’s performance coincides with the cops showing up, responding to a domestic disturbance call. “We not domestic, we ain’t eem married,” he explains with great annoyance. You really do forget that nobody willfully misreads things or demands more than their due respect quite like Katt Williams does. His act—which is also, historically speaking, his public face—is that he’s short, and it’s funny in a sometimes-sad way. He is desperate, but acidic; paranoid and uncool, but composed at the same time. Williams is perfect as Uncle Willy because Williams is Uncle Willy. Either might ask, with a crazed look in their eye and a cigarette hanging out of their mouth, what is youuuuuuu doin’ here.

Williams gets a big moment near the end of the episode, and it’s up to you whether it counts as redemption, given the decade he’s had. To set it up: After Willy needles the idea that Paper Boi has outgrown Earn’s usefulness, Earn does something he hasn’t since the third episode of the first season, almost two and a half years in real time. He says how he feels. “What I’m scared of is being you. You know, somebody everybody knew was smart but ended up being a know-it-all, fuck-up Jay that just lets shit happen to him.” Life has plainly not worked out for Willy; there are cracks in the ceiling above their heads, and Fulton County PD is at the front door.

Damn,” Williams says, and for what it’s worth, I also said “damn.” It’s one of those moments that bridges Atlanta’s surreality and the physical world. Willy/Williams becomes, unambiguously, what Earn/Glover has to grow beyond, and it’s striking, dispossessing. “If you don’t wanna end up like me,” Williams says, “get rid of that chip-on-your-shoulder shit. It’s not worth the time.”

He busts out the back door to skitter off into the sunset after that. Willy’s exit doesn’t magically solve his nephew’s insecurity. This is Atlanta as it ever was: reliably human, and reserved in its commentary on that humanity.

Marvel Music & Hollywood Records Present Black Panther Original Film Score Soundtrack

Marvel Music And Hollywood Records Present Marvel Studios’ Black Panther Original Motion Picture Score Soundtrack

 Available Digitally On February 16th

Original Score Composed by Ludwig Göransson

BURBANK, Calif., Feb. 13, 2018 — Marvel Music/Hollywood Records are releasing the digital album of the Black Panther score, composed by Grammy®-nominated composer and songwriter Ludwig Göransson, on February 16, 2018.

The film is directed by Ryan Coogler and produced by Kevin Feige with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Nate Moore, Jeffrey Chernov and Stan Lee serving as executive producers. Ryan Coogler & Joe Robert Cole wrote the screenplay.  Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” hits U.S. theaters on February 16, 2018.

“Black Panther” marks Göransson’s third collaboration with director Ryan Coogler (“Creed,” “Fruitvale Station”).  The Swedish-born composer wrote the original songs for “Creed” and has also produced albums for Childish Gambino, Haim, and Chance the Rapper.

Göransson recorded the score in London with a 132-piece western classical orchestra, African percussionists and a 40-person choir. Göransson said, “After reading Ryan’s first draft of the script, I quickly realized that the only way I could properly score ‘Black Panther’ was to travel to Africa to record, research and learn from as many musicians I could find. I was introduced to Senegal’s most incredible musicians and storytellers, and from there it all started to come together.  One of the instruments that especially caught my attention was the talking drum, which together with West African sabar drums and ceremonial rhythms, became the foundation for the score.”

Göransson infused a wide array of African instrumentation into the score and character themes.  Speaking about the score’s creation, Göransson notes: “The talking drum is used for T’Challa’s main theme, with one hit per syllable of his name played on the drum.”  For Erik Killmonger’s theme, the name was sung and screamed into a fula flute to convey the “musical interpretation of the character’s ferocity.”   Sabar drums were used to “propel the story and to highlight both the country of Wakanda and T’Challa’s movements, especially in his fight scenes.”  Sabar drums are used in traditional African wrestling “making them perfect for the action scenes.”

Göransson’s biggest challenge was to blend a western classical orchestra and modern production with traditional African rhythms and harmonies.  He adds, “Together with Ryan Coogler, we worked out new ways of combining the three elements into something traditionally authentic and truly unique, that I hope embodies the heart and soul of Wakanda.”

The “Black Panther” digital album is available for pre-order HERE.  The soundtrack can be streamed HERE .

About Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther”
Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

“Black Panther” stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, with Angela Bassett, with Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.

Childish Gambino Partners With RCA Records, New Music Out This Year

“It was a necessary change of pace.”

Following the success of Childish Gambino’s 2016 album “Awaken, My Love!”, the artist née Donald Glover has announced a new deal with RCA Records.

Glover and his creative agency Wolf + Rothstein are partnering with the Sony Music subsidiary for a new recording and label deal that will release new Gambino music later this year Wolf + Rothstein/RCA Records.

“Donald is undoubtedly one of the most talented, multi-faceted, young entertainers of this era,” said RCA chairman and CEO Peter Edge in a statement. “We are excited to join forces with him and Wolf + Rothstein to usher in the next phase of Childish Gambino’s musical career.”

The new deal sees Glover leave the independent Glassnote Records, with whom he signed in 2011 and released three full-length albums and two mixtapes. Although Gaminbo has seen substantial acclaim during his term with Glassnote, it has not been entirely amicable throughout its duration. In 2014, he slammed the label over what he claimed was a mishandling of a video for his Because The Internet single “Sweatpants” and allegedly lying to him. “We were told a lot of things were gonna happen and they were all lies. So I’m done. Someone buy me out of this contract,” he tweeted at the time.

Regarding the new partnership with RCA, Glover said in a statement, “It was a necessary change of pace.”

Wolf + Rothstein operates out of Temple Studios in Los Angeles and is the brainchild of Glover, Wolf Taylor and Fam Rothstein. As a label, it has previously released Kari Faux’s Lost en Los Angeles and bLAck pARty’s Mango in 2016. Wolf + Rothstein will be partnering with Kobalt for publishing.

“Being malleable is important to us, and that’s what this partnership allows. Also, it was about that time,” said Rothstein in a statement.

Julian K. Petty, partner at Nixon Peabody LLP, added, “This partnership is a real commitment to artistry and the future of music. I’m happy I could play a small part in helping put it together.”

Gambino is nominated for five Grammy Awards at this weekend’s event, including album of the year for “Awaken, My Love!” and record of the year for the breakout single “Redbone.” He will also be performing at the show.

iHeartRadio Music Awards 2018 Nominations: ”Despacito” Dominates

Thought you’d heard the last of “Despacito” when the clock struck midnight in 2017? Think again.

Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee‘s smash hit collaboration with Justin Bieber swept the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards nominations, which were announced today. Fonsi and Yankee top the list at seven nods, in categories such as Song of the Year, Latin Artist of the Year and more.

RihannaEd SheeranBruno MarsDJ Khaled and The Chainsmokers round out the second-most nominated group of artists with five each, Justin Bieber rakes in four (his Belieber fanbase is up for Best Fan Army), and Taylor Swift earns three—in addition to one for the Swifties and one for her cat, Olivia, in the Cutest Musician’s Pat category.

Other notable nominees include Niall HoranCardi BCamila CabelloThe Weeknd and Imagine Dragons. The 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards will take place Sunday, March 11 at The Forum in Los Angeles. Fans at home can catch it live on TBS, TNT and truTV at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

NEW YORK, NY — The Recording Academy‘s GRAMMY Recordings® and RCA Records have revealed the track listing for the 2018 GRAMMY® Nominees album.

“This album is an extraordinary representation of the diverse talent being recognized as GRAMMY nominees,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Recording Academy. “We’re pleased to partner with RCA to deliver this special collection of recordings and to raise funds and awareness for MusiCares and the GRAMMY Museum—two philanthropic organizations dedicated to improving the environment for music and those who make it.”

“This has been an incredible year for music across all genres, and this collection serves as a celebratory sampling of some of the most important songs released this year,” said RCA Chairman and CEO Peter Edge. “In addition, the entire RCA team joins me in expressing our excitement to partner with the Recording Academy on releasing this album, particularly because it benefits the crucial work done year-round by MusiCares and the GRAMMY Museum.”
