DNCE

Formed in the summer of 2015, DNCE first introduced themselves to audiences worldwide with the release of “Cake By The Ocean,” their now 3x certified platinum-selling breakout smash.  Included on the group’s 4-track debut EP, SWAAY [Republic Records], “Cake By The Ocean” entered the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and became a hit at Top 40 radio, where it went on to become one of the most played songs of the year.  An international success, global consumption of the song is over 7 million adjusted singles, including nearly 450 million streams on Spotify worldwide. What’s more, the companion music video has over 200 million views on VEVO.

Following up “Cake By The Ocean,” the sexy, gold-selling “Toothbrush” amassed over 50 million YouTube/VEVO views with an unforgettable music video starring supermodel Ashley Graham as well as achieving global consumption over 1 million. Moreover, it received widespread critical praise from the likes of Entertainment Weekly, InStyle, People, and Rolling Stone.

Cementing them as one of 2016’s breakout acts, the band recently took home the win for “Best PUSH Artist” at the 2016 MTV European Music Awards and “Best New Artist” at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.  They were also nominated for two American Music Awards for “Favorite Duo or Group Pop/Rock” and “New Artist of the Year Un-leashed by T-Mobile.”

DNCE recently released their self-titled debut album and completed their 2017 North American headline tour DNCE IN CONCERT.

DNCE is front man Joe Jonas, bassist & keyboardist Cole Whittle, guitarist JinJoo, and drummer Jack Lawless.

HAILEE STEINFELD

Republic Records artist and Academy® Award-nominated actress Hailee Steinfeld made her music debut in 2015 with the release of her RIAA platinum-certified single “Love Myself” from her debut EP, HAIZ [Republic Records]. Cementing this multitalented performer as a vital new force in pop music, the song became “the highest solo female artist debut on Top 40 radio since 1998.” Among many achievements, the breakthrough smash peaked in the Top 10 on the Top Pop Songs Chart, went #1 on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart, and claimed #25 on Shazam’s Us Top 100. By 2017, it had notched 270 million Spotify streams and 175 million YouTube/VEVO views and counting.

This hot streak continued full force in 2016. She teamed with Grey for “Starving” [feat. Zedd]—her second single to be certified platinum by the RIAA. The song vaulted to Top 5 at Top 40 radio, Top 5 of iTunes Top Pop Songs Chart, #13 on iTunes Overall Songs Chart, Top 10 on Spotify’s US Top 50, and Top 20 on Spotify’s Global Top 50 all the while closing in on 400 million Spotify streams.  To date, the multi-platinum selling artist has amassed a total of 1.5 billion streams globally.

Steinfeld closed out the year by starring in one of 2016’s best-reviewed films, The Edge of Seventeen produced by James L. Brooks. Directed by Kelly Fremon-Craig and co-starring Woody Harrelson and Kyra Sedgwick, her performance earned unanimous critical acclaim as well as two Critics’ Choice Award nominations and a Golden Globe® nomination in the category “Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.”

2017 promises to be Steinfeld’s biggest year yet with more new music on the horizon and a role in Pitch Perfect 3. She is currently featured on Machine Gun Kelly’s new single “At My Best” and has a new single coming this Spring.

JASON DERULO

Singer, songwriter, and dancer Jason Derulo is a multi-faceted, timeless entertainer. To date, the singer, songwriter, and dancer achieved two RIAA platinum albums, Jason Derulo (2010) and Talk Dirty (2014), two gold albums Future History (2011) and Everything Is 4 (2015), and a gold EP Tattoos (2013)—totaling over 12.5 million albums sold globally. A multiplatinum powerhouse with 94 million-plus single equivalent sales worldwide (5.5 billion streams & 58 million downloads), both his introductory breakout “Watcha Say” and “Talk Dirty” [feat. 2 Chainz] reached quadruple-platinum status, while “Want To Want Me” and “Ridin’ Solo” went triple-platinum, and “Trumpets,” “Wiggle” [feat. Snoop Dogg], and “In My Head” earned double-platinum certifications. Platinum singles include “Marry Me,” “The Other Side,” and “It Girl,” while “Get Ugly” and “Don’t Wanna Go Home” went gold. Cumulative streams continue to soar, exceeding 5.5 billion and YouTube views surpass 3 billion. At radio, his music impacted a total audience of 20 billion-plus listeners with a staggering 3.5 million spins. He landed 4 #1 songs on the Billboard Hot 100, 6 Top 5 songs, and 11 Top 10 songs.

Whether it’s hosting the hilarious “Toddlerography” on The Late Late Show with James Corden or cameoing on Empire or Lethal Weapon, Derulo has become embedded in the fabric of pop culture. He was on the covers of Billboard Magazine and Forbes Magazine in addition to appearing in Time, People, Men’s Fitness, USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, Elle, Forbes, and LA Times as well as guest appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Good Morning America and Live with Kelly. He’s received 3 Teen Choice Awards, 2 BMI Pop Awards, and 1 YouTube Music Award. Derulo proudly stands among history’s most successful artists, and he turns up the heat in 2017 with the explosive new anthem, “Swalla” [feat. Nicki Minaj & Ty Dolla $ign].

NIALL HORAN

Capitol Records recording artist Niall Horan made his solo debut in late 2016 with the single “This Town.” The song, which Horan co-wrote, reached #1 in 60 countries in the first 24 hours of its release, became the #1 trending topic worldwide on Twitter and topped the Shazam chart in numerous countries. Combined streams now surpass 250 million worldwide. “This Town” has sold more than 2.5 million track equivalent units globally and is certified Platinum in the U.S. Views of Horan’s “1 Mic 1 Take” performance video exceed 30 million. The 23-year-old artist won his first solo People’s Choice Award in 2016, taking home the award for Favorite Breakout Artist.

Rolling Stone praised the “acoustic, mournful single” and Entertainment Weekly hailed it as “a wistful tale of young love lost.” “‘This Town’ is a lush, guitar-forward ballad,” said TIME while Billboard noted how it “beautifully frames Horan’s talents as a vocalist” and USA Today applauded Horan’s “foot-stomping folk-pop.”

The intimate track gave fans a taste of what they can expect from Horan in 2017. Accompanying himself on piano and guitar, he has been writing new material and finding inspiration in the music he has favored since childhood – artists like Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles and Crosby, Stills and Nash.

“Whenever I would pick up a guitar, I would always naturally play chords like that and fingerpick a lot [in] that folkie kind of style,” Horan told Entertainment Weekly. Many of the new songs are acoustic-based, but Horan plays electric guitar on several and the tracks are filled with funky percussion touches.

POST MALONE

Post Malone stirs a mix of genres into his own sonic sound that’s both intoxicating and invigorating on his full-length debut album, Stoney [Republic Records]. His uncanny ability to cook up a 21st century “sauce” of genres transformed the multiplatinum Dallas, TX maverick into the “#1 Debut Hip-Hop Artist of 2016.” Upon release, Stoney bowed at #1 on the iTunes Overall Top Albums Chart and Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200. In just a few months, the debut album has accumulated 1 billion streams, while the RIAA minted his breakout single “White Iverson” triple-platinum, “Congratulations” platinum, and “Go Flex” gold. As he turned up with a whiskey-soaked warbly flow, orchestral trap production, and an acoustic guitar in hand, he earned praise from the Los Angeles Times, Complex, Vibe, The Fader, and more.

Along the way, he served as direct support on Justin Bieber’s worldwide “Purpose” tour and collaborated with the pop superstar on Stoney’s “Déjà vu.”

One day, Post created the beat for “White Iverson” in his bedroom, laid down the vocals, and uploaded it to Soundcloud in 2015. The response proved overwhelming. Before he knew it, the budding star had Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller tweeting him, Noisey and Hypebeast singing his praises, 14 incendiary SXSW performances under his belt, and major labels knocking at his door.

In just six months of its official arrival on Republic Records, “White Iverson” first achieved RIAA Platinum status and he went on the road for Fetty Wap’s “Welcome To The Zoo” tour in early 2016. Kanye West and 50 Cent tapped him for high-profile collaborations, and Jay-Z, Bieber, and many others offered enthusiastic co-signs.

“It’s been an incredible year for us and we can’t wait to ring in the New Year with all our fans on New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,” said One Direction. “It’s an honor to be back at the Billboard Hollywood Party for our second year.”

The show will include hours of special performances and reports on New Year’s celebrations from around the globe. Ryan Seacrest will host and lead the traditional countdown to midnight from Times Square in New York City as he has for the last 10 years with live reporting from actress and comedian Jenny McCarthy.  Popstar Fergie will oversee the festivities at the Billboard Hollywood Party in Los Angeles.

One Direction — composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson — formed in 2010 on the U.K.’s award-winning TV talent show “The X Factor.” The group’s debut single, “What Makes You Beautiful,” was released in September 2011 and went straight to #1 in the U.K. and top five in the U.S. on the Billboard Hot 100. The group’s first album, “Up All Night,” following suit, topping the Billboard 200 album chart. The release of their second album, “Take Me Home,” took One Direction to No. 1 in 37 countries. Their third album, “Midnight Memories,” was announced as the biggest selling album globally of 2013. One Direction’s fourth No. 1 studio album, “FOUR” featured hit singles “Steal My Girl” and “Night Changes.” With “Four,” One Direction made Billboard history as the only group in the 59-year history of the chart to see their first four albums debut at number one. The band has sold more than 65 million records worldwide, achieved a total of 137 number ones, and is the recipient of five Billboard Music Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards and five American Music Awards, among others. They have a massive 117 million combined Twitter followers and 38 million Facebook fans. One Direction surprised fans in July 2015 with the release of their single “Drag Me Down,” which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and previewed the band’s fifth studio album ‘MADE IN THE A.M.,’ which was release on Nov. 13, 2015. When Fellow album track “Perfect” entered the Hot 1-00 at No. 10 earlier this month, it marked One Direction’s fifth top 10 debut, pushing them past the Beatles for most top 10 debuts in the chart’s 57-year history.

ONE DIRECTION ARRIVE AT MADAME TUSSAUDS LAS VEGAS
AS PART OF THEIR “WORLD TOUR”

Sensational British Boy Band Now on Display through February 2016

Wax figures of the award-winning pop group, One Direction, are now on display at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas through February 2016 as part of their “world tour.” All five original members of 1D will be featured at the attraction, including Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and recently departed member, Zayn Malik. The pop stars are featured sitting on bleachers with plenty of room for fans to cozy up to the figures for the perfect photo opp.

First launched in London in 2013, the One Direction figures were created in close collaboration with the band. Over the course of two sittings, 40 talented studio artists worked to take hundreds of precise measurements, examined their skin tones, matched their eye colors and tested hair swatches to ensure accuracy. The stars’ personal hairstylist then added the final touches to the boys’ stylish strands. Dressed in clothes donated by the singers themselves, the figures are adorned in their signature smart-casual stage style. The band members were notably stunned by the likeness of their figures. The figure creation took four months to complete and the cost for each figure totaled approximately $300,000.

One Direction launched to super-stardom in 2010 after appearing on televised British singing competition, The X Factor. The chart-topping band has consistently been one of the most requested figure creations by Madame Tussauds’ guests.

“We’re just kind of a bit overwhelmed. We’ve been to Madame Tussauds and seen the kind of people who are in there. It’s crazy to think that we will be up there with them,” commented Harry Styles.

Niall Horan was similarly elated, stating, “We were super excited to find out that they were making us and that people felt we were worthy of a figure.”

Tryst nightclub at Wynn Las Vegas and XS nightclub at Encore continue to prove themselves as the hottest entertainment venues in the country with star-studded events, surprise performances and more.

 

On Saturday, Sept. 20, Tryst transformed into Jermaine Dupri’s ultimate birthday headquarters as the rapper-turned-DJ took over the stage with R&B singer Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran. To get the party started, Dupri played crowd favorites such as Jay Z and Justin Timberlake’s “Holy Grail,” Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy,” Trey Songz’s “Say Aah” and more before throwing it back to the early 2000s with his infamous hit “Where The Party At.” During his set, fans passed around large cutouts of his face as the lovely ladies of Tryst presented him with a birthday cake shaped as turntables. XS and Tryst Managing Partner Jesse Waits was alongside Dupri as partygoers sang “Happy Birthday.”

 

Across the property, at the No. 1 nightclub in the country, XS welcomed award-winning DJ and producer David Guetta for another unforgettable show. Continuing to be One Direction band members’ go-to spot for a night out in Las Vegas, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik showed up at the sophisticated venue around 2 a.m. with singer Ed Sheeran and rapper Macklemore. Throughout the evening, Horan, Sheeran and Macklemore hopped on stage, jumped up and danced each time Guetta dropped the bass.

 

Following his set, Lil Jon and Dupri joined the group on stage to stay, “We have so many celebrities in XS tonight. Let’s keep the party going!” And they did just that as Lil Jon performed “Turn Down For What” and “Bend Ova” before passing the mic to Macklemore, who rapped his verse in “Same Love.”

 

Additional guests included reality star Brody Jenner, who was seen with his girlfriend Kaitlynn Carter, and four-time Mr. Olympia champion Phil “The Gift” Heath, who was celebrating the competition’s official after-party at XS.

What better way to kick off the weekend than with impromptu performances by multi award-winning artists Usher and Chris Brown? Well, that’s exactly how XS nightclub did it. The two artists showed up at the Wynn Las Vegas hotspot to celebrate rapper Jermaine Dupri’s birthday on Friday, Sept. 19.

 

Arriving shortly after 12:30 a.m., Usher, Brown and Dupri were seated at the exclusive VIP table next to the stage. The trio was spotted hanging out with One Direction band member Niall Horan, who continues to make XS his go-to club for a night out in Las Vegas, hip-hop artist SchoolBoy Q, rock ‘n’ roller Tommy Lee, his fiancée Sofia “Sofi” Toufa and XS Managing Partner Jesse Waits.

 

Following Skrillex’s set, Usher and Brown joined the DJ on stage to sing “Happy Birthday” to Dupri. Partygoers went crazy as the two stayed on the mic to perform their hit song, “New Flame.” Usher and Brown then closed out the club as they continued to sing for another 30 minutes before heading out around 3:30 a.m.

 

Other notable guests include mixed martial arts fighter and former Olympic wrestler Dan Henderson, and videogame programmer and designer Markus “Notch” Persson. Throughout the night, Notch sipped on the Five Star, XS’ specialty cocktail mixed with Louis XIII Rare Cask 42.6, Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 23-year, Martini Gran Lusso 150th Anniversary Vermouth, D.O.M. Benedictine “Black Monk” 500th Anniversary Edition, Peychaud’s Bitters, Angostura Bitters and flamed orange oils. The $5,000 libation was delivered on a gold tray and made tableside for him to enjoy with friends.

Sighting: One Direction Singer Niall Horan Continues to Celebrate 21st Birthday at Hakkasan Las Vegas Restaurant – Sunday, September 14

Last night (Sunday, Sept. 14), One Direction front man Niall Horan dined at Hakkasan Las Vegas Restaurant located inside MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. Taking a break from the band’s “Where We Are” Tour and recording a soon-to-be released fourth studio album titled, Four, expected to drop on November 17 this year, the Irish heartthrob took some well-deserved time off to celebrate his 21st birthday with close friends and loved ones by dining on signature bites and libations at Las Vegas’ most in demand modern Cantonese restaurant.

 

Horan and pals savored dishes such as the Roasted Chilean Seabass with Chinese Honey and the Crispy Duck Salad, to name a few, while his group toasted to his special day drinking Hakka cocktails and various signature wines. The group headed out of the venue just before 1 a.m.
