Critically acclaimed billboard singer/songwriter Melissa B. returns with a highly anticipated new song Back & Forth.” The new song was produced by D. Sharp Entertainment alongside with her Grammy engineer Michael Ashby who did Bodak Yellow with Cardi B. Her newest patch of pavement is bouncy, 808-throbbing single “Back & Forth”. That title, elevated to iconic levels by both Cameo and Aaliyah, has a history of songs that linger fondness. Excellently produced by D-Sharp with a clarity-brilliant mix by Michael Ashby, Melissa weaves her echoed range throughout every nuance of this modern, trap-esque track. It’s clear why Factmag had hailed Melissa B. as a “Future R&B Diva” alongside NAO a few years back. This new single will be out on May 22nd, 2020.


“Back & Forth” is available at all digital providers and all streaming providers HERE. Additionally, the inviting lyric video for the song will be out soon.


Melissa B. has been garnering much attention from fans and critics alike since she independently unveiled her debut EP Exclusively in 2015 in which she was considered for a Grammy nomination. She eventually released a commercial song called “Dancing in the Rain” which shot to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Single Sales charts after being on there for 3 weeks sitting only behind Demi Lavato and Lana Del Ray.

RedrumSociety is gearing up for a new release of their video “Crumble”. The song and video is premiering on Valentine’s Day. After releasing four songs, which had little success, the band finally experienced a victory with their fifth release: “Ego”. The music video gained the up and coming band extra momentum, and the song briefly reached the iTunes pop charts. This is an exciting time for the RedrumSociety as we all await the release of the “Crumble” song and video.


The record is brimming with genuine emotion, beautiful and complex imagery and music, and lyrics that are at once passive and fire-breathing. RedrumSociety is like tossing David Bowie, old U2, Spacehog and lots of Pink Floyd into a blender and pushing the ‘kill’ button. The release of ‘Crumble’ is by far their finest moment, and one that demonstrated their brilliance both musically, lyrically, and creatively.


Stream the new release on iTunes.

Green Day are releasing their 13th studio album, Father of All Motherfuckers, this Friday. Despite some folks pining for another version of American Idiot — something bassist Mike Dirnt admits that some expected from the band considering given the current political climate — Father of All…is not that album.


Dirnt says that the album is closer musically to early Green Day albums like Insomniac and Dookie. Father of All… is 10 in-your-face songs that clock in at 26 minutes. It’s more The Ramones than American Idiot.
