Joyner Lucas Thanks Eminem, Logic, Chris Brown, Rihanna & More

Joyner Lucas has never been one to hold back his admiration for his fellow artist, and following the release of his brand new Evolution project, the rapper took it upon himself to share some kind words to some of his biggest inspirations. On his official Facebook page, Lucas penned a lengthy thank-you message, the likes of which might have once been found within the album’s liner notes. And though liner notes have largely become a thing of the past — unfortunately, as perusing them was a highlight of the CD era — Joyner appears ready and willing to keep the tradition alive.

“Big thank you to my bro Chris Brown for being the first super star to embrace me and put me on tour,” he writes. “Our relationship goes beyond music. Pause. Big thank you to Rihanna for being a good ear and great friend & also guiding me with information that has helped me. U made me try caviar for the first time in london.” He proceeds to thank both Billie Eilish and Snoop Dogg, whom he deems an “uncle figure,” before turning to some of his biggest collaborators so far — Eminem and Logic, with whom he worked on “Lucky You” and “Isis” (which recently went platinum) respectively.

“Thank you to Eminem for letting me be apart of history and embracing me as well,” he pens. “Thank you for always mentioning me as one of your favorites as you are mine.

Promising New Artist Taydem Shoesmith To Release Debut Single On New Year’s Eve

The singer-songwriter, actress and performer will release the electro-pop single “Are You Clapping?” just in time for New Year’s playlists.

With an affinity for music from a very young age, Taydem Shoesmith has been exploring songwriting for quite some time. Having multiple IMDB acting and composing credits to her name, Taydem is now diving into the pop music market with her debut single, “Are You Clapping?” The electro-pop/dance anthem, written by Shoesmith, comes from a very personal place; one she hopes will connect with listeners:

‘I think this is my first song that was written out of anger,” Taydem recalls. “I remember writing in my lyric book about how frustrated I was with the people around me and society in general. We think we have to act like the perfect person when we talk to people or go on dates. We’re kind of setting ourselves up for failure because we’re acting like someone we think they want to be with. I mean, it makes sense because in the past, relationships weren’t about love or connections. They were basically just business deals. I guess I just got to the point of wondering why I was doing this. Why were people telling me to talk more, smile more, flirt better, don’t be boring, etc, so often, when it came to relationships. Because not only was it exhausting to keep that facade up, I was also disappointed in myself for basically faking who I was, just to catch some guy’s attention. So through this song, I’m saying that I’m done putting up a show.   Having confidence in the choices we make is very important, no matter if it’s in relationships, jobs, or life in general. And that is the message I hope people will take away from this song.”

From singer-songwriter to pop and alternative, Taydem’s music is a unique amalgamation of different genres and influences. Her musical inspirations include Michael Jackson, Rascal Flatts, Billie Holiday, Sabrina Carpenter, Camila Cabello and more. Her acting debut was in 2020, when she was cast for a role in the short film “In the Dark.” She has been cast as the lead in multiple films, and has created music for films as well; one of those being a theme song for a short series, “Blood Sisters.”

All totaled, the Lebanon-born, France-raised artist has over 5K monthly Spotify listeners and over 100K plays on the platform.

Now, Jen Ash is releasing her most personal track to date. “No Lover Lover” is a cathartic song for Jen, tackling an issue that is sure to hit home with many.

“I’ve experienced a very toxic relationship, and I did not realize it,” she said. The wake-up call was when he did not show up at my first show, nor was he supportive of my art, being jealous of my creativity and not being enthusiastic about my success. He was trying to discourage me every step of the way. I let him go and honestly… I felt miserable. I really thought I couldn’t live without him, but I discovered that it was actually quite the opposite. The doors started to open for me as soon as he was gone. Relationships are sometimes distractions, and they take us on a path that is not ours to take, and we lose focus of what our true desires are.”
