Pure Mids New single out today
MIA is a song about times of confusion and the struggle people eventually face. And rather than looking at these times as a trap and trying to find quick solutions and distractions, in the end maybe these are challenges we must endure in order for us to advance to the next stage of our lives.
The video serves as a tribute to drummer Jamaal Turner’s deceased wife and premiered on Impose Magazine where the band shared, “this is a lasting tribute to Diana, but more than that it is an appeal to the universal tragedies we all have to endure, and that we have to overcome in our daily lives.”

DJ Ruckus – YFN Lucci ft. PNB Rock – “Everyday We Lit”
A melodic trap master beloved in the streets of Atlanta, YFN Lucci reached new heights with “Everyday We Lit,” a collaboration with XXL Freshman PNB Rock. Produced by June James, the aspirational anthem by the dominated radio and eventually peaked at #13 on Billboard’s Rap Streaming Chart, #12 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop chart, #6 on the Rap Airplay chart, and reached #33 on Billboard’s Hot 100. Today, the hit single gets a new jolt of energy from DJ Ruckus, one of the world’s most in-demand DJs, who shares his maximalist remix of the track.

Wild Ones’ sophomore album, Mirror Touch, out today
“Mirror Touch considers the boundaries between self and other when creating art,” explains vocalist Danielle Sullivan. “How do you know yourself when there are a thousand voices considering every angle, analyzing every choice? On this record there are love songs, anxious songs, and songs of isolation. My favorite pop songs contain heartache in seductive packaging, like some kind of emotional Trojan horse. This is our version. It took us two years to make and we went through multiple renditions of everything. What you have now is our truest, most honest expression of the last few years. We’re happy to share it with you.”
Atlantic Records singer, songwriter, producer, and engineer Sam Bruno has released an official remix for her debut EP’s empowering lead single, “Hello Hater” – available today via all DSPs. The “Hello Hater” (Kill Them With Colour Remix) can be downloaded and streamed.
