Who's Having the Best Week Ever?

The answer is PopRiot Music Group...and what a week it was.

After you launch a video/single you usually have some time to breath. The excitement and pace drop off and it turns into watching sales stats, ad placements, blah, blah, blah. That didn't happen this time. Following the launch of the most ambitious video in PopRiot history, Erica Ashely's brand new single "Supernova" was released just one week later. Breathing had to wait.

The song is the title track from her sophomore release and it may very well be the best song in the PopRiot catalog. It marks the continued development of Erica as an artist and the evolution of the sound of her music. This record has put aside the dance pop sound of Hearts Collide and focuses more on organic instrumentation and her incredible voice and range.

"Supernova" was released as a lyric video and the response has been amazing. Wordkrapht Magazine featured the song in it's Daily Krapht column and gave it two thumbs up. Then tour mate Aaron Carter tweeted about the song and his fans jumped all over it. So's been an intense, amazing week but we are definitely having the best week ever. the gauge like Ellen Page!

Press, Placements, Katy Perry…oh my!


I know what you're thinking "'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!
