About Daniel Caesar:

With each song, Daniel Caesar reaches out and makes a connection.

It’s a deep connection in the classic sense of R&B/Soul and its transcendent power to affect the very core of our existence. His voice, songwriting, and presence immediately elicit feeling, especially on the pair of 2017 singles “Blessed” and “We Find Love”—which The Fader praised as “Gorgeous.” They further unlock his world and usher in the arrival of his hotly anticipated full-length debut out this year.

That level of connectivity is becoming a tradition for the artist. With jarring gospel undertones, heart-tugging guitar chords, and soothing harmonious vocals, his 2014 debut effort, Praise Break, earned critical acclaim and would be ranked in the 20 Best R&B Albums of 2014 by Rolling Stone. Caesar’s follow-up project, Pilgrim’s Paradise, was met with even greater praise, subsequently capturing the attention of both the Canadian and international music markets.

Conveying moody anecdotes about life’s most pertinent lessons – love, loss, faith, desire and determination, Caesar tells a coming-of-age tale that is not only relatable, but genuine. With raw talent and an unwavering mystic, layer by layer, Daniel Caesar is writing a melodic story rooted in his authentic self — a story that has only just begun.

Apple Music polishes its appeal with Carpool Karaoke series

bruno-mars-carpool-karaoke

Want to hear Alicia Keys serenading a woman at a launderette? That and other scenarios are some of the reasons Apple hopes viewers will pay for Apple Music as it launches new show Carpool Karaoke: The Series.

It hopes that a recognisable show and slew of A-list celebrities will help the world’s largest technology company stand out in a saturated television market.

Carpool Karaoke is based on the popular segment from CBS’ The Late, Late Show With James Corden, in which the talk-show host joins guests such as Adele in sing-a-longs while driving.

Apple Music costs US$9.99 (S$13.60) a month for an individual membership and has 27 million subscribers.

Corden, who appears in some episodes of Carpool Karaoke, said partnering the technology company was a “no-brainer”. The series offered a chance to include celebrities whom he said had asked to do the segment on The Late, Late Show.

Spotify now twice as big as Apple Music

According to Spotify, it now has over 60 million paying users. Compared to its biggest competition, that’s double Apples Music’s 27 million subscribers.

Spotify updated its subscriber information today with the new number. It’s impressively increased by 10 million over the 50 million subs the company announced in March.

Last month Spotify claimed it had 140 million total users, which includes active users of the freemium plan. Apple Music doesn’t have a comparable free tier, so, any way you cut it, Spotify is still outnumbering the iTunes replacement by a lot of subscribers.

Apple Music Now Has Playlists That Feature Songs Played On Fender Guitars

If you play the guitar, there’s a very good chance that you might have heard (or even own) of Fender guitars. For the uninitiated, Fender is a guitar manufacturer that has been around for decades, with their guitars finding their way into the hands of many legendary musicians across a variety of genres.

 apple-music-fender

This is because Fender guitars have a very unique sound to them that many guitar players seem to love, and if you agree to that statement, you might be interested to learn that Fender and Apple have teamed up for specially curated Apple Music playlists, where these playlists will feature songs that were performed using Fender guitars.

There will be five playlists to choose from with each playlist featuring a different genre. According to Fender CMO Evan Jones, “We’re pleased to partner with Apple, to bring a Fender-curated music experience to long-time Fender fans and those just discovering the brand. These five new playlists honor a diverse range of iconic artists and visionaries, and an emerging generation of artists, who are driving guitar and music forward.”

So if you are trying to decide on which brand of guitar to buy, perhaps these playlists might give you a better idea on the kind of music and sound that you might be able to coax out of a Fender guitar.

JAY-Z’s ‘4:44′ Will Be Released on Apple Music and iTunes Next Week

jay-z-picture

Critics and fans alike are raving over JAY-Z’s 4:44 project and rightfully so. It’s arguably one of his most finest albums of his career. However, some people are griping over the fact that you can only hear it exclusively on Tidal/Sprint. But not to worry.

An insider has told Billboard that 4:44 will be available on Apple Music and iTunes next week.

Tidal has an exclusive one-week window while 160 iHeartRadio stations across the U.S. will be streaming it as well. There’s no word on when Spotify and other streaming services will have it available on their platform. The exclusive is part of a $200 million deal the cellular carrier signed with Tidal earlier this year.

Physical copies are also in the works but there’s no timetable on when the project will be available on CD or vinyl.

Meanwhile, curious fans were also wondering whatever happened to the song “Adnis.”
During the promotion of the album, Jay released a snippet of the song, which is about his late father. Since 4:44 is such a confessional album, people were expecting to hear “Adnis.”

Hov’s longtime engineer/producer Young Guru went on his Twitter account to announce that “Adnis” could possibly be added to the physical copies of 4:44. He tweeted:

There’s no word on when physical copies will hit stores, but it looks like JAY-Z has more promotional stuff planned for his 4:44 album.
