Music Monday: Jagwar Twin, Cierra Ramirez, Arkells, Sa-Roc, and CHESCA

Jagwar Twin’s debut album Subject to Flooding, which features single “Loser,” a song that made an instantaneous splash is now available. Racking up more than 100K Spotify streams in just one day with inclusion on many key playlists such as Spotify’s New Music Friday, Apple Music’s Breaking Alternative and Shazam’s Best New Music, “Loser” breaks down the walls that separate us and reminds us that we are all the same inside.

Drawn magnetically to a shared human spirit, Jagwar Twin’s worldly ensemble of alternative sounds offers a perspective that leaves room for everyone. A fitting introduction to the collective consciousness of Jagwar Twin, where egos are set aside and a “we, not me” mentality reigns, “Loser” – which is receiving early radio airplay on key stations such as KROQ, Alt 92.3 and Alt 98.7 -unlocks the new project from Roy English, the driving force behind Jagwar Twin.

 

Tribeca Music/EMPIRE Records recording artist and actress, Cierra Ramirez releases her new single “Bad Boys” after exclusively premiering the track on Complex.

The track was executive produced by Tha Aristocrats (Kanye West) and is her first single since last year’s viral song, “Faded” which has over 4 million views since its release and received lots of exposure last summer as the #3 most added song at Top 40 Rhythm Radio.

 

Arkells officially release “American Screams” another new track off their highly anticipated studio album Rally Cry set for release on October 19. The song set social media aflutter when it was unofficially released earlier in the week through a hotline currently advertised on a non-descript billboard set up in Buffalo, New York. The billboard reads: “Can’t sleep off those American Screams? Call 1.888.426.8856.”

When dialing in, callers had two options: “Hey you’ve reached the American Screams hotline. If you’d like to hear our new song, please Press 1; If you’d like to leave a message for the Arkells, Press 2.” A picture of the billboard quickly went viral and the hotline has been experiencing a higher than normal call volume with fans noting that they are calling in upwards of 100x to get an advance listen of the track.

 

Rising Atlanta MC, Sa-Roc, releases her “Goddess Gang” single and video. Backed by jarringly bright horns and staccato percussion, the Rhymesayers Entertainment artist demands to be judged not on her appearance, but on her lyrical skill alone.

An accomplished artist who has performed with Atmosphere, The Roots, and Talib Kweli, Sa-Roc is a powerful female voice who has collaborated with David Banner on her 2014 underground hit “The Who?” and appeared on Brother Ali’s revered 2017 cut “We Got This.”

 

Puerto-Rican pop artist CHESCA today released her single, “Azúcar” along with a simultaneous release of the video. The danceable, Urban Pop track combines Latin and reggaeton sounds with melodic choruses and catchy hooks and the video is a perfect compliment to the song with its colorful and vibrant view of CHESCA showing off her vocal prowess and her incredible look. The hook-laden track was produced by the same team, led by Al Janussi, that worked magic for Marc Anthony’s “Vivir La Vida” and JLO’s “On the Floor.”

CHESCA now lives in LA but hails from Puerto Rico and is quickly making her mark in music with this dual release. She is ambitious and multi-talented, always in the studio perfecting her International, Latin, Global, and Pop sound. She has her eye on musical collaborations with Pitbull and has big support from artists such as French Montana as well as looking forward to touring later on in 2019.
