Celeste is undisputedly one to watch out for” – Wonderland

“Deft, poetic storytelling; commanding vocals; and a generous spirit” – Interview Magazine

“Celeste has a voice that will break your heart” – Notion

“She is so obviously the real soul-baring deal” – Sunday Times Culture

 

Having already made her mark with two stirring singles in 2018, ‘Both Sides of the Moon’ and ‘Lately’, Brighton soul singer Celeste kicks off 2019 with her most personal release to date, ‘Father’s Son’. Accompanied by a beautiful video directed by Bob Harlow from an original concept by Celeste, the subtly devastating track ruminates on the now West London-based singer’s complicated relationship with her American father, who sadly died when she was 16.

 

Celeste plays with gender on the song as a means of coining a universal anthem for those left sea.

Post Malone Releases “Sunflower” and hits Number 1 on Billboard Hot 100

Post Malone and Swae Lee’s ‘Spider-Man’ collab just hit the top of the Billboard charts

There are some indisputable facts regarding this year’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. First, of the six Spider-Man movies since 2002, Spider-Verse is the best. In a year where Black Panther is vying a Best Picture Oscar and Infinity War is practically printing money, Spider-Verse is still the superior superhero movie of the three. The animated, Miles Morales-starring film has already been thrust into debate as a candidate for the greatest comic book movie of all-time, while it’s still in theaters. And the soundtrack’s most recognizable song — which is featured heavily in the movie — is a beneficiary of that momentum.

 

Now, Post Malone and Swae Lee‘s “Sunflower” is the Number One song in the country. After weeks in the Billboard Hot 100’s top ten, the bright, sweet and melodic ode to love, sunflowers and other clichés dethroned Halsey’s “Without Me.” “Sunflower” also technically becomes Swae Lee’s first Number One as a solo artist  —  it’s the second if you count Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode,” though he isn’t officially credited on it.

 

Despite the star-power, there is a case that the song’s commercial success is largely indebted to its prominence in the movie. The audience is first introduced to Miles Morales as he mumbles his way through Swae Lee’s verse while drawing at his desk. In December, Lee described to Rolling Stone why his voice is becoming more popular across the pop spectrum: “My voice is becoming a household voice, something people are familiar with. It always has this feeling of either turn-up or missing someone. That’s what people say about it.”

He also described working with Malone on “Sunflower.” “We was in the studio this one night in L.A. just going crazy all night. Cooking up, drinking corkscrews, drinking beers. We made six, seven songs,” Lee continued. “The Spider-Man people came and heard it and they picked that one. And I saw the movie already, and it’s crazy, because Spider-Man is actually singing the song in the movie.”

The Rapper Seazer McCall to Start a Big Project Called “SEAZUS” to Help Youth and UpComing Artists Do Good

The project is about a young South African kid born in a speedy life and finds himself caught up between himself and the cruel crooked world on New orders, depression, teenage-hood, politics, financial literacy and religious history then tries to overcome and understand how to stay innocent but free from how he’s expected to.

Here’s the main reason Why Seazer McCall Started this Project
I’m trying to bring both parents and the kids in a single room… get the parents to understand and acknowledge that their kids are growing in a new different lane and they should support and guide them instead of trying to own and control them denying them the chance to grow up, make mistakes and learn because that might chase them away and turn to dangerous situations trying to avoid being judged and called names.

What Changes will This project bring to the youth of South Africa?
This will help the youth understand that it’s not always about being the best or the coolest or maybe even the smartest. It’s all about being one with the one within you and being a teenager or a young adult is not easy… not everyone wants to see you do good, you won’t always be happy all the time because humans are not the only and the smartest species in the universe… that we as the youth holds the future, therefore we should make it our priority to grow the economic state and free our parliament from any evil deeds or offenses if we can._*

Seazus… What’s the story behind this Project’s name?
Seazus is my AKA name given to me by my highschool buddy which originates from Seazer. So as time came by I looked at it as Jeasus for the Christian generation how he helped and was there for them, but I obviously it’dbe disrespecting for me to call myself Jesus so Seazus is the perfect fit for the character, I’m not imitating him though… I’m taking motivation from his history and previous deeds. So, all that he had done for the Christians I will try my best to do for the youth and the hip-hopians, the bravery and heroic behind the name motivated/pushed me to name this project Seazus.

Who are the competitors of this Project?
Well… I don’t see any competitors on this project because the message and the story telling is partly about me, I am unique so nobody can compete with my uniqueness and it’s also about every concern in our country, everybody is talking about the nice expensive life they have or wish for and all these other typical girl hurts boy, boy loves girl and/or vise versa… so with my project is a different story. more like breaking every rule in the book to enlighten our South African youth.
