"I don’t want to let other people’s opinions of who I am and the way I live my life to disrupt what I do and the way that I create my art." On our latest episode of #PressPlay we continue our #PrideMonth Special Edition series with @iamvincint performing "Please Don't Fall In Love"
The GRAMMY for Album Of The Year considers the quality and artistry of the collection of tracks as a whole🎶. What's your favorite #album of all-time? 💿
“I love building. I love the behind-the-scenes of putting together music and f***ing with stuff, and just messing with ideas and seeing it from the first note recorded to the final mix. That’s why I don’t tour. I just want to create all day.” We spoke with @willyipmusic about his journey towards making records...from his mom's basement all the way to Studio 4! #PandEWing
"I don't really care so much what people say about me because it usually is a reflection of who they are. For example, if people wish I would sound like I used to sound, then it says more about them than it does me."- #Prince
“We're definitely living in a genre-less world and I think that's the most beautiful thing." "Thank U, Next" and "7 rings" co-writer and rising artist @notnjomza spoke with us about performing live, and transcending genres.
We all have a favorite song ❤️but we want to know. . . What's your favorite #musicvideo ? 📹
"With this album we are trying to voice the fact that we are here and we are not only creative artists, but that we hold PhDs, we speak multiple languages." #Portland #trombonist and DREAMer Denzel Mendoza has overcome many obstacles to live his dream as a musician. He joined us to discuss his feature on the GRAMMY-winning #jazz album, 'American Dreamers: Voices of Hope, Music of Freedom' his unique journey, and how we can embrace our differences through #music 🎶❤️
It's been 25 years since the 1994 release of @outkast 's 'Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik' and there's still nothing like it! Long before they amassed six #GRAMMYs , sold millions of records, and toured to sold-out crowds around the world, @BigBoi and @andre3000 were just a couple of teenagers in #Atlanta , sharing their experience through #freestyling
"You can't calculate every element of what makes a song timeless..Sometimes it's just something ineffable that happens in the room, that happened in the context of how it's used, and it just takes off. Sometimes you can't explain it. 25 years after #Aladdin 's "A Whole New World" won Best Original Song at the #GRAMMYs , we caught up with the history-making ballad's creative team to look back on the hit #song
"'I made it in my bedroom, it was mixed poorly. It was released at the time when Eminem and #NSync and #BackstreetBoys were topping the charts. It was supposed to fail and the fact it did exactly the opposite of that was very surprising and still to this day seems anomalous." We spoke to @moby about the 20th anniversary of ‘Play,’ his new memoir and how the landmark album fits into today’s discussions of cultural appropriation.
"We always try to communicate with the audience on stage. Although the venue has grown in scale, we will continue to pour our passion and energy as we always do."- @bts bighitofficial stopped by our #GUSoundChecks in #Chicago and shared details on all the hard work that goes into making a performance seem so effortless.
We are so honored to announce that @MusiCares has received a $50,000 grant from the Mac Miller Fund, which will be used to establish the MusiCares Mac Miller Legacy Fund to help music people age 27 and under who are struggling with substance abuse. The Mac Miller Fund, was established at The Pittsburgh Foundation by the family of rapper, producer and songwriter Malcolm McCormick, professionally known as @MacMiller , after his death in September. “We're grateful to partner with and support people doing the work. It's a way for us to celebrate and carry on Malcolm's nature — providing opportunities for young people to realize their talents and potential while supporting community. It’s critical to us to help provide a safety net for artists who are struggling with substance abuse.”
EXCLUSIVE: "I'm really interested in trying to figure out what I can do and who I can be not f**ked up, not drunk, and really focused and sharp." During our in-depth conversation with @laurajanegrace , she gets candid about her current journey with #sobriety and why she's been hesitant to discuss it until now.
