Beea – SHE DON’T NEED “PERMISSION”
Brazilian-born, Los Angeles-based pop artist Beea is releasing the video for her newest single, “Permission,” today. “Permission” is a club thumper with a powerful message for women. It reflects the impact of patriarchy on women, and messages that women can do and be whatever they want because they “don’t need permission.” The video – conceived and co-produced by Beea – is a stunning visual representation of all the aspects of empowered womanhood.

Lil Durk Connects With Cole Bennett for “Green Light” Video
With an influential melodic style that defines the current sound of The Chi, Lil Durk is ready to affirm his rightful place among rap’s royalty. Traveling to the future and rocking a sleek silver wardrobe, Durk shines brightly in “Green Light,” his latest video. Filmed in Atlanta and directed by Cole Bennett, “Green Light” proves that Durk’s boss status transcends space and time, as the 26-year-old rapper exerts a near-psychic control over his drones, who do his dirty work while his hands stay clean. Forgoing the melodic auto-tune that characterizes much of Durk’s recent work, “Green Light” is a hard-hitting drill anthem, radiating with the rawness of the rapper’s breakout mixtapes. The video racked up over 1.3 million views since its release on Saturday. “Green Light” is the latest single from Love Songs 4 The Streets II, Durk’s upcoming album, dropping August 2nd via Alamo Records/Interscope.
Locomotion / Geffen Records recording artist YUNGBLUD releases brand new song, “Hope For The Underrated Youth” today. Written by Dominic Harrison (YUNGBLUD) and produced by Dominic Harrison, Zakk Cervini and Chris Greatti, “Hope For The Underrated Youth” is available. The song premiered earlier today on BBC Radio 1 as Annie Mac’s “Hottest Record In The World.”
The single premiered via Impose Magazine where Metcalf shared, “‘Cheap Kind’ narrates the familiar feeling of shame that arises when one inexorably loses everything. From an earring, to a lover, to life itself, the catchy chorus expresses the age-old pain of encroaching nihilism. This punch-to-the-gut song will make you want to dance and cry at the same time.”
BIG SEAN RELEASES SHORT FILM FOR BRAND NEW TRACK, “SINGLE AGAIN”
“The video has a lot of important messages, but the main one is for people to ‘wake up and smell the roses’ in a world where we wake up and check our phones instead.”
‘She conveys more lofty emotion in just a few lines than many artists can muster over a whole record.’ – Bearded Magazine
‘It’s a sultry neo-soul affair, mottled with red-lit trip-hop synths and distant beats – there’s also a vibrant ’90s streak in her voice, recalling the slick tones of R&B icons… While there are similarities to Stateside acts like Frank Ocean, she carves a niche all her own by implementing the very British stylings of Lamb, Portishead and Massive Attack.’ – The 405
