Press, Placements, Katy Perry…oh my!

I know what you're thinking "...it's nearly 11:30pm on a Saturday and this guy is writing blog entires. What kind of sad lonely life is he leading anyway?" Ok…maybe it's only me that's thinking that but whatevs. Glad I'm here to report the PopRiot skinny.

Many of you know that we released "Frequency" by JOR-G and Erica Ashley yesterday and it was an absolute smash. People were emailing, texting, IM'ing, and all other "ings" you can imagine. The best part was that we picked up some amazing press around the song. Victor from Wordkrapht Magazine heard it and decided to feature the track in their Daily Krapht segment and gave it a glowing review! He's been a supporter of PopRiot and our artists before but this was a huge surprise and we appreciate everything he's said about our PopRiot family.

How can it get better than that you ask? Well we found out today that Erica Ashley's song "Where Are We Now?" will be featured with music from Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Pink on the new Jammy Jams CD "Pop Goes the Lullaby 2". Release info is coming soon and If you don't know the song you should check out the video!

I will end this with a quick hitter about the Playground Etiquette cd release show. This event was always going to be awesome but now that we've added Manon Mathews as the host of the event it's going to be phenomenal. She…is…hilarious...and one of the best comedians out there today. SNL should pick her up ASAP! If you're local to Baltimore you do NOT want to miss this show!

You really need to hear this song…NOW!

I'd like to introduce you to a phenomenal new track that we just released today. The song is called FREQUENCY and features two of our favourite artists - JOR-G and Erica Ashley. If you're a into JOR-G then you'll know him from classics like "Kennedy" and "Family" and if you're an Erica Ashley fan then you probably have "Hearts Collide" on your iPhone right now. Either way you haven't heard either of them like this. FREQUENCY is EPIC. It's an adventure…it's intense…it will instantly be the soundtrack to a movie playing in your head. The best news is that we're doing a pre-iTunes release and it's on sale for the throwback price of $0.99. Check it out and download it NOW!

New Singles & Our First International Signing!

I'm a little behind so this blog is chock full of news and updates. First let's start with new releases. About a week ago we launched the debut single from Emily K. The song is called "This Little City" and it's a legit smash. More people emailed me about this track than any of our other releases. You should got to Emily's page and listen now! Look out for a FREE download soon!

There's another new release I've been talking about for a month and I can't tell you how excited our team is to release this song. The track is called "Frequency" and it features both JOR-G & Erica Ashley. I know somebody here is going to kill me but for some reason it reminds me of 30 Seconds to Mars…if 30 Seconds to Mars was a rapper from Miami and a 14 year old pop star. The song comes out 12/12/13 so check back then. Please support PopRiot and our artists by sharing the song on your social networks!

Please help us welcome YoungBlood by visiting his page, following him on Twitter, and subscribing on YouTube. His first single is scheduled for release the week of January 24th and we expect VERY big things for him. Stay tuned...

Being #1, One Direction, and the Best Week Ever

reverb2.jpg

I plan everything so my weeks have a mind-numbing rhythm. Wake up, read email, post a bunch of garbage on Facebook/Twitter, write music, and then repeat. I know...the glamour of it all right? THEN there are weeks like this one that start the same but blow up into a frenzy of insane happiness and joy.

The first thing I want to announce is that we now have TWO #1 artists. JOR-G has been holding down his position as #1 Hip Hop artist for months. He's pretty much the King of Miami at this point. Ok...that's a bit much. Lebron probably owns that crown but JOR-G would definitely be his right hand man. Joking aside, PopRiot is now home to another #1 artist - Erica Ashely! She's been a strong contender on the Pop Chart for months, bouncing up and down in the Top 10 but she finally did it. It's fitting that they're both #1 since they are collaborating on a new single called "Frequency" to be released near Christmas.

As you can tell the week went from meh to awesome and we were all riding the high. Then awesome took a turn for out of control surprise, mayhem, and amazement. You've heard of that little boy band from England right? They're called One Direction...you may have seen pictures. While they were broadcasting their global 1DDay show, Harry Styles - OUT OF THE BLUE - gave a shout out to Erica Ashley on television! WHAT? No way! Yes...WAY! He and the band THEN followed her on Twitter and hundreds of their fans followed suit. It's been a flurry of activity ever since.

So...who's having the BEST WEEK EVER? We are!
