Sean Paul releases the Major Lazer produced "Tip Pon It" Video

Dancehall legend, Grammy Award winner, and maker of some of the most memorable videos in pop, Sean Paul, unleashes the video for his brand new Major Lazer produced Island single “Tip Pon It”.  The video, shot on location in Paris, was directed by legendary French artist and director Alex Courtes, who also appears in the video, and who has worked with the likes of Daft Punk, Kylie Minogue and The White Stripes. 
Tip Pon It comes hot in the heels of Sean’s latest single the David Guetta produced Mad Love which features rising Mexican / American star Becky G who has been enjoying massive success in the US with her huge hit single “Mayores”.

Sean Paul, who was recently presented with a plaque from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for selling a staggering 26 million records, has been enjoying an unbroken string of massive hit singles in the 2 years, most recently with the single Body featuring Atlanta superstars Migos which was the follow up to the worldwide hit No Lie featuring Dua Lipa. Add Tek Weh Yuh Heart with Tory Lanez, and the Clean Bandit collaboration Rockabye, which spent nine weeks at number one in the UK charts and, of course, his Grammy nominated Number 1 Billboard, global smash with Sia on Cheap Thrills, and it is fair to say that the reggae superstar has rarely been away from the higher reaches of the charts.

Sean Paul is without doubt one of the most instantly recognisable voices in music and he has continued his remarkable strike rate over the last year with a string of hits. In 2002 “Dutty Rock” (fuelled by the massive hit singles “Gimme The Light “ and “Get Busy”) went double Platinum in US & UK  while 2006’s “Temperature” reached x4 Platinum in US with sales of over 4m. Over the span of his career, Sean Paul has worked with some of the world’s biggest artists including Beyonce, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Busta Rhymes, Sia, Kelly Rowland, Enrique Iglesias and 2Chainz, and has also partnered with reggae and dancehall acts such as Damian ‘Junior Gong’ Marley, Chi Chi Ching, Mr. Vegas, Beenie Man, Ding Dong, Future Fambo, and Tami Chynn. Aside from being a top-notch performer, Sean Paul is a much sought after music producer and has created music with a number of top Jamaican artistes.

Sean Paul will be taking his wildly acclaimed live show on tour in Europe this summer, stay tuned for 
tour dates.

Grammy Award®-nominated, multiplatinum, record-breaking superstar ARIANA GRANDE returns with her brand new single “No Tears Left To Cry” via Republic Records & Island Records. Get it HERE.

Produced by Max Martin and ILYA, written by Ariana, Max Martin, ILYA, and Savan Kotecha, “No Tears Left To Cry” is the first single from her upcoming highly anticipated full-length album.

In addition, she simultaneously unveiled the song’s music video, directed by Grammy Award®-winning director Dave Meyers, on VEVO this morning. Watch it HERE

With her powerful vocals and astonishing range, Ariana Grande has emerged as one of the most magnetic and massively successful performers in pop music today. At age 24 she’s delivered three platinum-selling albums and surpassed 18 billion streams, in addition to nabbing four Grammy Award nominations and landing eight hits in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. With her most recent album — 2016’s critically acclaimed Dangerous Woman — Grande both boldly defies expectation and reveals the full force of her voice (recently hailed as an “extraordinary, versatile, limitless instrument” upon Grande’s appearance on Time’s “100 Most Influential People” list).

Since making her full-length debut with 2013’s Yours Truly (featuring the game-changing, triple-platinum smash “The Way”), Grande has brought her striking vocal presence to a genre-blurring breed of pop, taking on R&B, soul, and electronic music with equal nuance and assurance. Arriving in 2014, her sophomore effort, My Everything, garnered a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album and spawned the 6x-platinum hits “Problem” and “Bang Bang” (a Grammy nominee for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance). Through the years, the longtime actress and former Broadway star has proven the scope of her talent by appearing on Scream Queens and Hairspray Live! and showcased her comedic chops by hosting Saturday Night Live. With her social media following now surging past 200 million, Grande has also earned numerous accolades from the MTV Video Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards, and American Music Awards (including the highly coveted Artist of the Year prize).

The first artist in music history to see the lead single from her first three albums debut on the Billboard Hot 100, Grande embraced a more uncompromising vision than ever before in the making of Dangerous Woman. With People noting that the album “celebrates feminine might,” Entertainment Weekly praised Grande for “having something meaningful to say with that jaw-dropping voice — one of the most exquisite in pop today.” Grande wrapped up her widely lauded Dangerous Woman Tour in support of the album, performing 85 arena shows worldwide.

"A Boat to an Island on the Wall" with Ben Howard taken from new album "Noonday Dream" plus tour dates

"A Boat To An Island On The Wall" is the first new music that Ben and his band have shared since the release of his number 1 charting second album, "I Forget Where We Were", in October 2014. It welcomes in a new full length record, "Noonday Dream".

"Noonday Dream" was recorded in numerous studios between South West France and South West England, including Sawmills. It was produced by Ben.

"A Boat To An Island On The Wall" is a typically uncompromising, richly textured epic of an introduction to Ben’s next body of work. Tap here to listen to "A Boat To An Island On The Wall"

The transformation and development in Ben’s writing from his hugely successful debut LP back in 2011, to the immersive darkness of 2014’s I Forget Where We Were, and now on the cusp of another new sonic phase in Noonday Dream, could and should cement his status as one of the UK’s most gifted and unpredictable of artists.

Ben will perform live throughout 2018 with his sprawling six piece band. Dates listed below.
