DAVIDO RELEASES NEW VIDEO FOR “GBAGBE OSHI”
Born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in Nigeria, 23-year-old Davido (real name David Adedeji Adeleke) has always infused his Nigerian roots into his music and has been a major force in helping to cross over Afrobeats music globally. The singer/songwriter/producer chose to chase his music dreams after giving college a try, first releasing his Afropop crossover hit “Way Back When,” which planted him firmly in the Afrobeats music scene. Davido then charged forth into the mainstream with singles “Dami Duro,” “Omo Baba Olowo” “Gobe,” “Aye” and “Skelewu,” which attracted the attention of Major Lazer and Wiwek to create a remix to the track. Davido has collaborated with many artists such as DJ Snake, Tinashe, Rae Srummerd, Trey Songz, Young Thug and more. Additionally, he has performed all over the world at sold out shows including the One Africa Music Festival at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Davido has earned two MTV Africa Music Awards and a 2014 BET Award for “Best African Act.”

My Body New Single “Blowout”
My Body excels at thoughtful arrangement, every track carefully pieced together according to the relation between sound and meaning. On “Blowout,” My Body uses the clashing beats and rhythms to describe a desperate kind of claustrophobia, the lyrics likewise capturing an obsession with pleasing someone. “I just wanna make them beats, get my boy to move [SIC]” she sings, and though the track covers darker subject matter, the upbeat tempo and catchy chorus would get anyone to move for sure. “When we lived in Brooklyn we felt so claustrophobic and strangled by our small apartment, the weather, the noise, people.” “It was like I was losing nerve connections to my limbs and all I could center myself on was the man I loved and writing songs for him that he would like.”

Their new album ‘WWDK’ was written and recorded from June 2015 – Jan 2016 and released on April 15th 2016 at Velour Live Music Gallery in Provo. “Self engineered and produced, this album stole the better part of a year of our lives to create,” the group explains. “While not intended to be a concept album, much of this record does center around common themes concerning the struggle and purpose of life, learning, and growing up. We hope everyone who listens can feel the spirit, emotion, and energy put into this record. The very fact that it now exists as an entity in the world is the source of immense satisfaction to us as its creators.”

New Release from OneRepublic “Oh My My”
After putting out their third album Native—a 2013 release that debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and has sold over 5 million units worldwide—OneRepublic spent more than two years traveling the world in a series of sold-out tours. During that time, the Grammy Award-nominated quintet hit 154 cities in 26 countries and—true to their standing as a singularly global rock band—drew major musical inspiration from each place they visited. As lead singer/songwriter Ryan Tedder transformed that inspiration into new songwriting material, OneRepublic soon began the brilliantly whirlwind process of recording their fourth album all across the planet.
The follow-up to Native (whose host of smash singles include “Counting Stars,” a #1 hit in 54 countries), Oh My My came to life in nearly 20 cities around the world, including Rio, Moscow, Mexico City, Tokyo, Paris, and London. From track to track, OneRepublic—which features bassist Brent Kutzle, guitarists Zach Filkins and Drew Brown, and drummer Eddie Fisher—parallel the extraordinary scope of the album’s creation by blending alt-rock, gospel, synth-pop, nu-disco, and folk. With its abundance of sweeping, stadium-ready anthems, Oh My My shapes those eclectic elements into songs built on both masterfully expansive arrangements and bravely intimate lyrics.
Rising Hip Hop artist EL.i.BE releases new hit single “Make A Move”
Electrifying “Make a Move” is the latest track from EL.i.BE and happens to be one of the most motivating anthems orchestrated by the Minneapolis based Liberian hip-hop artist. “Piercing, tangible stimulus behind the lyrics has the power to raise those who have fallen down in the pursuit of their dreams, and must ring second nature to all achievers out there who never ceased working until they had something to show for their name.” A blend of contagious instrumentals and a steel contemporary beat paired with EL.i.BE’s wise-beyond-years message make us want to rise up with a fist in the air and pursue our goals with perseverance only music can inspire.

Give it a listen, read, and learn the lyrics so you can sing with us next time we’re in your town. Also, listen closely to the amazing guest spots from Misery Index’s very own Mark Kloeppel who absolutely killed the track and brought a visceral sound of hate to life in his performance.”
