Diplo had speakers blazing in May when he released what would come to be known as Deadpool 2’s unofficial theme song — “Welcome To The Party.” The original track, included in the motion picture’s soundtrack, featured the rap stylings of French Montana and Lil Pump, as well as some background harmonizing from teenage vocalist, Zhavia, known from her appearance on The Four.
A few weeks later, Diplo has followed up on the gargantuan release with a remix from the likes of hip-hop heavy hitter, Juicy J, Famous Dex, and original contributor circling back for another go, Lil Pump. Reviving the same larger-than-life trap beat, the remix uses the three new verses to bring a similarly irreverent and rowdy fervor to the track, extending “Welcome To The Party’s” shelf-life well into the summer months.
Marshmello, Juicy J and Arthur Prince, recently came together to create their emotion filled track “You Can Cry,” full of deep piano and intricate verses, that received a moving official music video, and now receives an ASL music video to compliment it.
For an artist that never talks and is consistently concealed behind a mask, it makes sense that he would eventually figure out a way to speak. If you’ve been to a music festival, then there’s a chance you might have seen people on the side stage, signing the songs for all of those who are hearing impaired.
The video features the model Nyeisha Prince and Marshmello, as they swiftly move and interpret the music through their bodies and hands. Marshmello has been all about bringing people together through music, and now he reaches a new level of inclusivity by creating a video that everyone can enjoy.
Marshmello‘s new production, “You Can Cry,” is the quintessential collaboration the world has come to love and expect from the Buckethead producer since he gave us his Khalid collaboration “Silence” in the fall of last year.
His more recent pop-punk plunge aside, Marshmello has found comfort once again in transitioning between the hefty promises of his co-conspirator, Juicy J, and even sought to add another layer of emotional depth with James Arthurs vocal chops. He’s situated himself between catharsis and bubbling bass drops on “You Can Cry” in what might be the perfect hip-hop crossover fit for the radio — and ultimately, that’s anything but a hard place to be in.
Marshmello has been a busy snacc lately. The artist who is known for his intensive release schedule has not slowed down in 2018. Between festival appearances, dropping new singles every other week, and even selling out one of the biggest venues in LA, we are kind of curious how Marshmello finds the time to even
At some point this year, the young Mississippi rap duo Rae Sremmurd intend to release Sr3mmLife, their third album. Mike Will Made-It, their producer and label boss, has said that it’ll be a triple album: One full album from the duo, as well as one solo album apiece from members Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi. More »
Streaming changed things. 2017 was the year that rap once again reaffirmed its stranglehold on the collective imagination of America’s youth. Like the moment when Billboard first started using Soundscan and inadvertently proved the massive popularity of N.W.A, the streaming services of the world showed just how powerful this music remains. Rap dominated streaming charts. More »
The first wave of UK punk was a big, loud, obnoxious negation of almost everything that had come before, of all the tasteful ’70s stuff that had been in the air. Johnny Rotten famously wore an “I hate Pink Floyd” shirt to his Sex Pistols audition, and the entire movement existed in direct opposition to … More »
We were only there for three or four songs. It was enough. Last Thursday was one of those rare nights when Chris DeVille and I, the two Stereogum staffers who refuse to live in New York, were in the city anyway, splitting a hotel room the night before we jumped on a train up to … More »
