Global sensation Aya Nakamura and U.S. hip-hop extraordinaire Lil Pump have collaborated on a new hit “Pookie” Remix. The language-traversing AfroPop single combines Nakamura’s scintillating French vocals with Lil Pump’s rhythmic flow. The original high-energy track, which was featured on her double platinum-selling album Nakamura, has already amassed over 150 million streams since its release last autumn.
Counting the likes of U.K. vocalist Sam Smith and grime icon Stormzy as fans, the latter recently enthused to BBC Radio 1 host Annie Mac: “[Nakamura] is the top in France. She is so incredible. I don’t speak French, I don’t understand French… but it’s THAT good when I don’t understand what she says. The vibe, the melodies, it’s incredible feelings.” Nakamura’s meteoric rise began with her earworm single “Djadja.” With over 650 millionstreams to date, the hit topped the charts across Europe, making the star the first French female artist to top the Dutch charts since Edith Piaf in 1961. Named by TheNew York Times as “One of the most important acts in Europe now, musically and socially,” the Mali-born, Paris-raised talent is now the most streamed French female artist worldwide. Having just crossed the 1 billion views mark on her YouTube channel, she was named among the Forbes’ “30 Under 30” list earlier this year, and earned a BET Awards “Best International Act” nomination. Miami-born Lil Pump rose to popularity off the back of hit single “Gucci Gang” from his critically-acclaimed self-titled debut album. The 4x-platinum track peaked at #3 on the U.S.Billboard Hot 100, and he has since collaborated with hip-hop royalty Kanye West andLil Wayne, while also releasing his second studio album Harverd Dropout earlier this year. Aya Nakamura has firmly established herself as a global superstar over the past 12 months. Collaborating with U.S. hip-hop A-lister Lil Pump cements this status even further.

Russian artist VEE drops his new single. “Sober” comes in anticipation of his new project “SOBER” set to drop later this summer. The track takes the listener down memory lane with Vee as he reminisces about college life. Battling the peer pressures of partying, hooking up and drinking with friends, Vee seeks genuine fulfillment – in true love and companionship.
“Sober” brings Vee back to a place from his past. Born in cold Siberian Russia, Vee always had great passion for music. While growing up, Vee had a heavy influence from american hip hop music. The ability to tell a story in it’s most vulnerable and raw way, moved Vee despite the heavy language barrier. As a child, Vee wrote songs however because he couldn’t speak english – they were just gibberish resembling the sound of English. When he was twelve years old, Vee asked his parents to buy him studio equipment for Christmas. After setting up a recording studio in his childhood home, he would always get paid by local singers and rappers to record and mix their songs behind his parents’ backs while they were at work. This allowed him to constantly upgrade his equipment and improve the quality of his records.
As a teenager, Vee focused his efforts on discovering his sound and figuring out where his place in music was. Driven by his dreams of moving to Los Angeles and pursuing his music career, Vee mastered the English language in only 2.5 years while still living in Russia. At 17, Vee moved to LA to attend college & devoted his free time in music. To save up for studio equipment, Vee would skip meals saving up his money while improving upon his music production knowledge. He always believed that music chose him, and with hard work and dedication, he would find his sound and passionate fans all around the world. Being so proficient and completely independent in his creative process allows Vee to really put his heart and soul into his craft and find out where he fits in the industry as an artist. Vee has proven his love of and commitment to music by not only moving halfway across the world to start his career, but also by mastering a new language vastly different from his Russian mother tongue. Vee won’t stop at anything to turn his dream into a reality.
Hear “Sober” above, and stay tuned for more from Vee.

Last year there were 40,147
instances of knife crime in London – just let that terrifying,
sickening number sink in for a second. Veteran UK rapper Unkle Festa has and he’s fighting back, harnessing the power of hip-hop to take a stand with hard-hitting new single ‘Out Your Mind’.
and never preachy, ‘Out Your Mind’ pulls no punches, savagely exposing
the mindlessness of knife crime and issuing a rallying cry to put a stop
to it. Over a haunting piano-led beat Festa asks “how many of our children have to be dead” before launching into a machine-gun chorus bringing his vintage flow to bear on heartfelt lyrics set to stun.
The former Mud Family spitter has been in the game since the late 90s, when he linked up with Skinnyman after relocating from Cyprus to London – since then knife crime in the UK has rocketed, with fatal stabbings at their highest level since WW2.
this violent epidemic is finding its way into the rapper’s tracks –
“When I write it’s about the things on my mind and close to my heart,”
said Festa. “Seeing first-hand the madness on our streets motivated me to write this track”.
The track is driven by a message and screaming for social change, and Festa is seeing the bigger picture to make that happen: ”Out Your Mind is not just for the youth to understand, but parents and government to understand – they need to listen and must change themselves to create a better environment for our children to grow”.
