Brooklyn crooner and rapper Theophilus London has been relatively mum musically since the release of his 2014 album Vibes. It looks like London’s hiatus from music is over with the release of his brand new single “Stay,” off his upcoming album NY THEO.
“Stay” is an uptempo track that gives us all the vibes we’ve come to expect from London including his ability to effortlessly blend genres, giving us a certified dance track. Listen to “Stay” below and we can’t wait to hear what else Theo’s cooked up for this project.
Yesterday, Samsung kicked off Lollapalooza weekend by offering festival-goers fun, immersive ways to check out the latest devices including the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge and the Samsung Gear VR at the Samsung Galaxy Experience.
Samsung continued its efforts in rewarding loyal Samsung Galaxy owners with festival perks and upgraded access to the Samsung Galaxy Owner’s Lounge. Select Samsung Galaxy owners were also invited to a private listening party with Gary Clark Jr. using the Samsung Level On headphones. Guests got a sneak peak of four new tracks off the Austin native’s second major label LP The Story of Sonny Boy Slim – out September 11th, worldwide. When asked about his inspiration for the new LP, Gary without hesitation spoke to the birth of his son, Zion.
For the first time ever, visitors of both the Samsung Galaxy Experience and Samsung Owner’s Lounge were able to view performances from the Samsung Galaxy main stage in virtual reality, a first at the festival, powered by Samsung Gear VR. Viewers of the fully-immersive Samsung Gear VR experience were transported to the main stage for an unforgettable, up-close-and-personal performance from artists like Glass Animals, Alabama Shakes and Cold War Kids.
The Samsung Galaxy Artist Lounge, a relaxing haven in the backstage artist village at Lollapalooza, welcomed a number of musical notables and talent today such as Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard,Theophilus London, Kaskade, Dillon Francis,Joe Jonas and more.
The much-anticipated record has hit the music scene in CDQ form and everyone has been going nuts! Trending for the last 24 hours, Kanye West‘s “All Day” has sent social media into a complete frenzy.
Originator of the track, producer-singer-rapper Velous aka Tyler Bryant told MTV:
“I started putting the track together last summer. I made that beat on my boy’s couch while I was watching Saturday Night Live. I worked on that and I had the main part of it, I already had the skeleton of it [and] it was for my big bro French Montana. I guess Kanye was rocking with it, so he gave it to Kanye and they added some more. Kanye went in, French added some stuff to it and I co-produced it with my big bro.”
In case you didn’t know…French signed Velous to his Coke Boys imprint last year, which is now a joint venture with Swanky Music Group. Since then, Velous has appeared on and produced records for rapper Chinx, Fabolous and DJ Spinking.
To have placements on such top-tier projects, the young artist/producer is well on his way to becoming a household name.
Listen to the massive track below:
Production credits of “All Day” includes:
Kanye West, Paul McCartney, Tyler Bryant (Velous), Kendrick Lamar, Karim Kharbouch, Cydel Young, Victor Mensah, Mike Dean, Che Pope, Noah Goldstein, Allen Ritter, Mario Winans, Charles Njapa, Malik Yusef Jones, Patrick Reynolds, Ernest Brown & Noel Ellis.
Theophilus London staying true to his word of dropping a new song every week for the month of February gives a new joint “Afternoon” featuring his long time friend Jesse Boykins III. The two have teamed up to form the super group 96 and promise to release an EP sometime in April 2013. “Afternoon” is a combination of TL’s smooth lyrics and Jesse’s soulful voice to make what they describe as a “seductive panty dropping vibe”. Not mad at the description at all if all the tracks have that same vibe this will definitely be in rotation when I have female company around ‘m just saying…. Step into TL’s and Jesse’s new track “96” below.
