BEST OF 2017 & HOLIDAY MUSIC It’s hard to believe that we are already looking at the close of 2017. It seemed to fly along rapidly and now we find ourselves looking back at a year that had quite a mixed bag of elements. Regardless of the hurricanes that ravaged the USA and all of the intense bickering in the world of politics, music once again provided a much needed break from all of the problems we faced. Through it all, songwriters continued to write greats songs and recording artists and bands continued to produce and release some rather excellent music. We can easily state that as we had the privilege of tracking and monitoring much of the music from the both the major and independent arena. Radio from Top40 to Hot AC had its leaders and favorites and we kept a pretty good watch in all of the varied music formats. It was a pretty impressive year for the likes of Charlie Puth, Selena Gomez, One Direction solo artists Harry Styles & Nial Horan and of course Taylor Swift who released a number of singles off her new album one after another. Making bold moves also was Portigal The Man, a band that has been at it a long time finally getting a #1 single for “Feel It Still”. Independent artists and bands also ruled the charts and many still have active records on our current charts from Top40 to AC. The world of Country music kicked off with our visit to the CRS in the early part of the year. Many artists that we saw, photographed and interviewed turned out to be real winners in a very competitive arena. Some of the leaders and solid winners included Thomas Rhett, Maren Morris & fabulous newcomers Midland who’s “Drinkin’ Problem” hit #1. Many Country independent artists hit the top of our charts and many can be seen on our Country Top50 right now in this issue. Independent labels provided some rather strong support to New Music Weekly in 2017 and for that we are extremely grateful. In this issue we are also providing a solid look at artists and bands for our up-coming New Music Award nominations. In the coming weeks we will be polling a good many of our reporting stations and subscribers to have an input in the nomination process. Also in the coming weeks we will make an open ballot available where by the general public, NMW subscribers and music fans will have the opportunity to put their favorites of the year in play. In addition to artists we once again will be honoring radio stations, programmers, record labels and music industry professionals. All will have a hand in the nominations. For this issue we also put the spotlight on up and coming Christmas and holiday music. Every year at this time we get serviced with some great new releases and ones that have been building in the many Christmas libraries at radio stations all over the country. Singer/songwriter, author, and speaker Charles Billingsley just released his “It’s Christmas Time Again” CD that is getting raves, praise and some rather impressive national chart activity. Several artists are rereleasing their Christmas favorites from Michael Rapp’s “Christmas Is For Kids” (Stage Too) to the Chris Rudd and Marcus Colbert pairing in “Another Christmas Song” (Christomedia). Once again New Music Weekly puts the wrap on another banner year. Radio stations continue to join our on-going New Music Revolution by leaps and bounds. Artists from both the major and Independent arena continued to reach out to us for support and we were there for all of them by providing the very best chart and music news information. Through our new and powerful digital delivery system we have been able to add thousands to our distribution outlet and that has helped to build our name even stronger. This will also be our final issue for 2017. We will continue to deliver to you the very best “tools of the trade” from tracking, advertising and music chart delivery. Once again in our world all stations are created equal regardless of market size and all independent artists are treated just like a major artist. All of us a New Music Weekly wish you the very best , a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and we look forward to an amazing 2018.

Julia Carin Cavazos was born November 13, 1993. Known by her stage name Julia Michaels, she is an American singer and songwriter from Davenport, Iowa who began performing as a teenager and later began writing songs that were given to other high-profile artists, most notably Demi Lovato, Fifth Harmony, Hailee Steinfeld, and Gwen Stefani. Michaels signed with Republic Records and released her debut solo single in 2017, “Issues” that was certified double-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). That was followed by her debut extended play, “Nervous System” (2017). She moved from Davenport at an early age to Santa Clarita, California, north of Los Angeles, with her family including her older sister Jaden who is also a songwriter. Her father, Juan Manuel Cavazos, is Puerto Rican, and changed his name to John Michaels to pursue an acting career. She began singing at age 12. When she was 14, she met songwriter Joleen Belle, with whom she wrote “Austin and Ally Theme” and many other songs for TV and Film, as well as her first 5 song EP. At 19 she met Lindy Robbins, with whom she wrote “Fire Starter” for Demi Lovato and “Miss Movin’ On” for Fifth Harmony. Michaels has said her inspirations include Fiona Apple, Lisa Mitchell, Laura Marling, Missy Higgins, Paramore, Juliet Simms, Sarah Blasko, and The Fray. Michaels had been writing in the Hollywood Pop Circuits since she was 16. When she was 20, she met her songwriting partner Justin Tranter with whom she frequently collaborates. Together with the Norwegian musician Kygo she performed “Carry Me” at the closing ceremony of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro Brazil. We will continue to update information on this amazing talent in future issues of New Music Weekly. This is our Best of 2017 & Holiday issue. Please support many of the artists seen in this issue as we begin the process for our annual New Music Awards. The open ballot is up right now on our website with official nominations revealed next month. 3

Selena Gomez has teamed up with Marshmello for what appears to be a huge Top40 winner. “Wolves” (Interscope) is the single that is taking the music world by storm. Selena has been on a roll as of late and this single should be just the icing on the cake for an amazing 2017. NF is the act to be paying special attention to if you are a music programmer. “Let You Down” (Capitol) is their red hot new single that should be taken quite seriously. Make some room on the playlist for this monster hit single. The pairing of Cheat Codes with Fetty Wap & Cvbz is turning out big dividends. “Feels Great” (300 Entertainment) is the jam that many of our music and program directors are raving about. That’s always an indicator that some big things are on the horizon. We’re also happy to see that Harry Styles is keeping his solo career in full swing. His latest offering in “Kiwi” (Erskine/Columbia) appears to be doing just fine and make sure to give this new one a spin or two around the radio block. Lorde is back at it and make no mistake about that. This time out she teams up with Khalid, Post Malone & SZA for what appears to be the monster team effort of the year. “Homemade Dynamite” (Lava/Republic) is the one that is making bold and beautiful moves in and around the Top40 world. One of our favorite pop songs is brought to us by Max and his new best friend Gnash. Together they make beautiful music together in the super amazing and solid “Lights Down Low” (RAL/Sony). This one is a solid winner so make sure you spend more time with it for your programming pleasure. Taylor Swift keeps releasing single after single. “Gorgeous” (Big Machine/ Universal) is her latest and there are already a few new ones coming out now as well. Not sure if this is “throw things out to see if they stick” but I’m sure her label is trying to figure it all out. The new power team that is Calvin Harris with Kehlani & Lil Yachty also has a good thing going. It’s all wrapped up in a song called “Faking It” (Columbia) that appears to be building by leaps and bounds. Just when you thought it was safe to turn on your radio, Chris Brown releases the single “Questions” (RCA/RLG) so hopefully he has some answers. The Weeknd is making it look all too easy as he takes the new jam “Die For You” (Universal Republic) out for a spin. Avicii brings the lovely Rita Ora on board and together they make some rather beautiful music. It’s all in a very nice package called “Lonely Together” (Geffen/UMG) & make no mistake about it, this one has legs. We’re also happy to report that the solo career of Niall Horan remains ever so strong, He proves it once again with “Too Much To Ask” (Neon Haze/Capitol) & this one is oh so good. Bebe Rexha has teamed up with Florida Georgia Line for a very unlikely pairing. Together they take the new single “Meant To Be” (WB/WEA) to new heights. Strange as it may seem this pairing works quite well and the results of all of this has turned into pure magic. We have also been getting really good reports regarding recording artist and music activist Abigail Scott. The track “Tin Soldiers” (Gravel Road) has been pulling in a number of early believers and that could mean some very big things ahead here. Newcomer Julz is finding a world of believers for his debut single. “Wonder” is the magic cut that has been taking both the Top40 and AC40 charts by storm. Make sure to spend some extra time with this brilliant young vocalist and song writer. Maroon 5 and their team with SZA is bringing much good fortune as “What Lovers Do” (222/Interscope) continues to move past the rest. Blackbear is also getting much love out there for their brilliant and bold “Do Re Mi” (Beartrap/Alamo/Interscope). Garret Young has had a brilliant year with “Do You Hear My Cries” (West Coast Collective) & so has John Ratliff and his band Receptacle with “Love Is Magic”. Newcomer Devi continues ever so strong with “One More Day” & Dianne Meinke is a solid contender with “Lemonade, Freshly Squeezed” (UVI) . Add Chuck Murphy & Big Coyote to the list as “Free To Be Free continues strong. All should be considered for our New Music Awards.

Charlie Puth continues his reign on the format with music that all of our listeners can relate to. “How Long” (Artist Partners/ Atlantic) is his latest and from the looks of how it’s being received good things are on the way for him. U2 are back at the format and that is always a welcome event. This time out they are taking a new gem out for a spin with the powerful “You’re the Best Thing About Me” (Interscope). The timing is right for a new U2 song and we only hope that the radio programming machines are receptive. The new emerging Lights continue to do brilliant things at radio. The single “Giants” (WB/WEA) is an extremely powerful offering and it’s getting a big “thumbs up” from many of our music and program directors. The pairing of two giants in the music industry appears to be making strange but beautiful music together. I’m talking about the match of Bebe Rexha and the always brilliant Florida Georgia Line. Together they are taking the gem “Meant To Be” (WB/WEA) out for a spin and the results are pretty impressive. Make sure to save a slot on your playlist for this masterpiece. Max and Gnash have a good thing going and make no mistake about that my friends. “Lights Down Low” (RAL/Sony) is a really tasty treat that deserves your attention. Already a huge hit at the Top40 format, this one will not disappoint in any way. Also breaking at the format is a new one from the always talented and forceful artist known as the Weekend. His new “Die For You” (Universal Republic) is really something to pay some extra special attention. We’ll see how it all plays out in the weeks to come. Newcomers Tiny Machines are at the format with a red-hot single. From the first week out “Back To The Sun” (Hobo Technologies) has been at the top of our “most added” list with some rather impressive numbers. Now the single is on a fast track hitting the charts with intense firepower. Recording artist Julz is also taking the music world by storm. His new “Wonder” (Ind) single has been a solid winner from the first week out. He’s young, talented and has a very bright future, a solid combination to be sure. Al & Trey are back at the format with another winner. “Reach Beyond” (Tide Productions) is their latest and it’s a very personal song for the dynamic duo. It’s already a solid hit on our Country charts and has now crossed over to both Top40 and on our AC40 formats. I also like the new single from Katrina Woolverton. Entitled “Hold Me Down” (Red Red) the song has huge potential and deserves your immediate programming attention. Ed Sheeran continues his winning ways at AC40 with “Perfect” (Atlantic) and we’ll see how it holds up against all of the previous hits. Zimri is getting plenty of love at the format for a single called “Belong” (Z Lab). Sky Orchid is also on the move with a single entitled “Lex” (Kitelines Music) so you might want to dig a little deeper into this gem. Also happy to report that Willamena is getting some good coverage at radio for the new single “Open Up The Stars” (Ten Lanes Wide). Gasoline Lollipops are rocking the radio world with “Soul Mine” (Fastrain) so what are you waiting for? Sarah Morris has a good thing going at the format and she wants the world to know all about it. “Shelter From The Storm” (RiverRock Group) is the jam that I’m talking about so you may want to give that one a good few spins around the block. Recording artist Devi continues to work her magic at the format. “One More Day” (Independent) has been making bold and beautiful moves ever since it’s release and now it’s closing in on the top spot. Rebel Hearts have teamed up with Boyz Nite Out for a great winner in “Baby Doll” (RHR). Chuck Murphy and his band & Big Coyote have taken their “Free To Be Free” (One West Music) to the top of the charts so a big congrats to them. Dianne Meinke has been blowing past the competition with her amazing and powerful “Lemonade Freshly Squeezed” (UVI). Garrett Young has had a big year with “Do You Hear My Cries” (West Coast Collective). Eileen Carey has also broken records with “Good, Bad Girl” and John Ratliff and Receptacle hit #1 with “Love Is Magic”. All of the above really deserve your recognition for this year’s New Music Weekly Awards.

Remember the last time you went to a chain restaurant to celebrate someone’s birthday and the restaurant’s staff substituted a restaurant’s unique hand clapping “happy birthday” song for the traditional song? Did you give any thought as to why they didn’t use the traditional song?

Well, consider one further fact: A reported $2,000,000 in licensing fees have been paid annually to Warner Music Group who claims copyright ownership since a 1988 acquisition of several musical holdings which included the well known 120 year old “Happy Birthday to You” song. However, many dispute Warner’s copyright claim, arguing that the song is in “public domain”, available to anyone to use a musician, at some point, the city of withoutIffeeyou’re payment.

Nick Jonas and Shania Twain join forces on new Christmas song Pop star Nick Jonas has made Shania Twain’s duet dreams come true by recording a Christmas collaboration. The You’re Still the One icon took to social media on Thursday (09Nov17) to unveil their festive surprise with a teaser for their song Say All You Want for Christmas. “It’s the most wonderful time of the year... @nickjonas,” she captioned the audio snippet. The track was made available to the public on Friday (10Nov17), and Nick has now revealed he actually penned the tune with Shania in mind. “When I wrote this song a few months back with the Monsters & Strangerz (production and songwriting team) there was only one artist... one voice I wanted to sing it with, and thankfully she agreed to do it!” he gushed in an Instagram post celebrating its release. “Thank you @shaniatwain for making my Christmas. Hope you guys like it.” Say All You Want for Christmas is a love song, with lyrics including the lines, “When we’re all alone and you hold me close/Say all you want for Christmas is me.” The studio pairing won’t come as a complete surprise to fans as the former Jonas Brothers star, 25, has previously admitted Shania was his first celebrity crush as a kid. He even confessed to still having feelings for the 52-year-old last December (16), when Nick presented Shania with the Icon Award at Billboard’s Women in Music ceremony in New York. Sharing a social media shot of Shania cradling his face on stage at the ceremony, he wrote, “That moment your lifelong crush knows you exist... #stilltheone.” The veteran country star was touched to have Nick as a fan, and after the event, she expressed her desire to team up with him in the studio. “I’d love to (collaborate with him). I’d love to do that,” she smiled to U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight. “I think that’d be a really fun thing to do.”

Ed Sheeran returns to stage following bicycle accident

Ed Sheeran returned to the stage in Singapore over the weekend following a “depressing” six-week touring break after his bicycle accident. The Shape of You singer was left unable to perform after he suffered fractures in his right wrist and left elbow by falling off his bike in October. He was forced to cancel a string of dates on the Asian leg of the ÷ Tour and rescheduled others for April 2018 so he could recover from his injuries, and he returned to the stage at the Singapore Indoor Stadium for a two-night stint on Saturday and Sunday.

In footage taken from the Saturday show, Ed told the audience that he was glad to be back on the road. “You may or may not know that six weeks ago I broke my arms and this is my first show back,” he said. “I have to say I’ve never been in a situation where I have not been able to play music. It was the most depressing six weeks of my life. I’m so happy to be back here playing music for you guys.” Ahead of his return, he sat down for an interview with Time Out Singapore and revealed that his arms still ache but he’s happy to be able to play shows again, even though he wasn’t feeling his best, admitting: “I haven’t slept at all because my jet lag has been terrible.” When he last came to the country, he performed for a crowd of 5,000 people and now he has sold out two shows at the 12,000 capacity stadium in Kallang. “Feels like it’s going well here. I’m very excited. Every time I come back to different countries it just seems to be growing and growing, so I’m really happy that we’re playing to such big crowds,” he added.

Meek Mill to apply for pardon in probation violation case

Meek Mill is to apply for a pardon after his jailing for violating the conditions of his probation.. The I’m a Boss rapper, 30, checked into prison last week after Pennsylvania judge Genece Brinkley handed him a sentence of two to four years in prison for two arrests that violated his probation from the 2008 drug and gun bust. The severity of the sentence has sparked outraged protests from the public and hip-hop stars including JAY-Z. Meek’s attorney Joe Tacopina tells TMZ.com that his client will apply to officials at Pennsylvania’s Board of Pardons to get him out of jail. A petition calling for Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf to pardon the musician, real name Robert Rihmeek Williams, has already garnered 300,000 signatures. Pennsylvania government officials told the Philadelphia Tribune that the governor did not have the power to interfere in the case. “Pennsylvania law does not give the governor any unilateral power to review, reconsider or change a conviction,” Wolf’s press secretary, J.J. Abbott said. “The law provides for individuals to apply to the Board of Pardons, which makes recommendations to the governor.” According to TMZ.com editors the pardon application process may be too time consuming to help Meek, as it can take three years to gain approval. Tacopina is also filing a motion for Judge Brinkley to remove herself from his case, and an official complaint

with Pennsylvania’s judicial conduct board. He alleges she is biased against his client as he turned down a request to record a special version of Boys II Men’s On Bended Knee for her and refused to sign a deal with a management company run by her friend. Meek’s probation was originally due to end in 2013, but it has been repeatedly extended for technical violations such as unauthorised trips outside the state for concerts.

Former Faith No More singer Chuck Mosley dies

Chuck Mosley, the original lead singer of Faith No More, has died at the age of 57. Mosley’s family released the following statement: After a long period of sobriety, Charles Henry Mosley III lost his life, on November 9th, 2017, due to the disease of addiction. We’re sharing the manner in which he passed, in the hopes that it might serve as a warning or wake up call or beacon to anyone else struggling to fight for sobriety. He is survived by long-term partner Pip Logan, two daughters, Erica and Sophie and his grandson Wolfgang Logan Mosley. The family will be accepting donations for funeral expenses. Details to follow when arranged. Mosley was lead singer for the first two Faith No More albums ‘We Care A Lot’ and ‘Introduce Yourself’.

Chuck Mosley is survived by partner Pip Logan, and his two daughters, Erica and Sophie.

Jennifer Lopez also scored a mention in the Best Bachelor Party list for her All I Have show, another Planet Hollywood residency.

Britney basically sells out every show, and she loves Las Vegas, she loves performing in Vegas, and Vegas is a possibility going forward,” he said.

Lady Gaga stops gig to help bleeding fan

Lady Gaga halted her Connecticut concert on Saturday night (11Nov17) to get help for a fan who was bleeding in the audience. The 31-year-old singer was performing as part of her Joanne World Tour at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville when she noticed a fan who had somehow been injured in the crowd. Stopping the event, Gaga said to the fan: “Hi, I just looked over and I saw, are you doing alright? Are you doing alright? Are you gonna stay? Do you need some extra help? Do you need a paramedic? They’re on their way? OK.” Gaga then asked the woman what her name was, with the fan replying “Meredith”. “Meredith, I’m so sorry you got hit in the face and that you’re bleeding. You OK? We’re gonna make sure you’re okay, alright?” Gaga continued. Waiting for several more minutes, Gaga ensured Meredith was receiving medical attention before she continued with the show. The singer then dedicated a performance of Paparazzi to the injured fan, telling the audience: “What we all need to remember is that there are some things that are more important than show business.” Gaga later instructed her crew: “Make sure to get that girl a backstage pass too!” The Million Reasons singer has only recently

resumed her world tour, after being forced to shut down dates in September and reschedule the European leg of the tour due to “severe physical pain” days after revealing she had been fighting fibromyalgia.

Carrie Underwood recovering from fall at home

Country superstar Carrie Underwood is nursing a broken wrist after slipping and falling on the steps outside her Nashville, Tennessee home. The Before He Cheats hitmaker’s representative reveals she was hospitalised on Friday (10Nov17) and treated for “multiple injuries”, including cuts and bruises, after the accident. She was released hours later and is now recuperating in the comfort of her own home. “Her recovery will take some time and she appreciates all the prayers and well wishes,” reads a statement issued by her spokesperson. Carrie has also taken to Twitter to assure fans she is being well cared for by her husband, retired ice hockey star Mike Fisher, who rushed back to Nashville from his travels when he heard about Carrie’s hospitalisation. “Thanks so much for all the well wishes everybody...,” she writes. “I’ll be alright...might just take some time... glad I’ve got the best hubby in the world to take care of me.” The incident has prompted the singer to withdraw from performing at Sunday night’s (12Nov17) Country Rising benefit gig in Nashville, where Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Keith Urban, Little Big Town, and Lady Antebellum, among others, are set to raise funds for the ongoing hurricane relief effort and those affected by the shooting massacre at the Route 91 Harvest festival in Las Vegas last month (Oct17).

During the prizegiving, the two artists honoured the lives lost in Sin City tragedy on 1 October (17), which left 58 people dead. “This has been a year marked by tragedy impacting countless lives, including so many in our country music family,” Carrie remarked. “So we’re going to do what families

Eminem reveals new song with Beyonce

Eminem released a taste of his upcoming album ‘Revival’ with the new song ‘Walk On Water’ on Friday. The song features the lines “I walk on water But I ain’t no Jesus / I walk on water but only when it freezes.” Later Eminem raps ‘I’m not God-sent, Nas, Rakim, Pac, B.I.G., James Todd Smith and I’m no Prince, so”. Eminem set the promo for the album up with a fake medical page askaboutrevival.com. The page talks of the fictitious disease Atrox Rithimus and Revival being ht ecure. “REVIVAL is proven to effectively treat people with Atrox Rithimus. If you’ve tried other treatments without getting the AR symptom relief you need, REVIVAL could be music to your ears”. ‘Revival’ is the first Eminem album in four years. It will be released next week on November 17. The last Eminem album was ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2’ in 2013. It sold 9 million copies worldwide.

Nicole Kidman sings backing vocals on Keith Urban’s Female

Country star Keith Urban recruited his actress wife Nicole Kidman to sing back-up on his new song Female. The singer debuted the tune onstage at Wednesday’s (08Nov17) Country Music Association Awards in Nashville, Tennessee, and he’s now confirmed the Oscar winner contributed to the background vocals for the track, which also features song co-writer Nicolle Galyon. “I thought it was nice and very personal to blend these girls into the song,” Urban shared, “because it just felt very right for what the song means to me.” Galyon penned Female with Shane McAnally, and Ross Copperman in early October (17), when they were inspired by the sexual misconduct scandal surrounding disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Speaking at the BMI Country Awards on Tuesday (07Nov17), Copperman explained, “We’re in a room and we’re like, ‘What can we do about this?’ And that’s the one thing we can do, is write songs.” However, before the track’s live premiere at the CMA Awards, Urban admitted he was unaware of the original motivation behind Female, and simply viewed it as a beautiful, empowering piece of music. “When I heard the song I knew nothing about its back story, and I don’t think that is needed for the song,” Keith explained to U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America. “The song for me was far more celebratory than anything else, so that’s what really moved me.” Nicole’s presence on the tune is fitting as the Moulin Rouge! star previously voiced her support for victims of sexual assault and harassment in light of the Weinstein allegations. “As I’ve stated before publicly, I support and applaud all women and these women who speak out against any abuse and misuse of power - be it domestic violence or sexual harassment in the workforce,” Nicole shared in a statement issued to People.com. “We need to eradicate this behaviour.”

Charlie Puth has ‘shaken hands’ with Bieber following onstage insult

Singer Charlie Puth is still on good terms with Justin Bieber after insulting the star during a concert last year. The 25-year-old has assured fans NMW - NOVEMBER 17, 2017

Vol. 19 Issue 6

there are no hard feelings between himself and Bieber after he hurled an expletive at the Baby singer during a concert in Dallas, Texas amid news reports he was dating the Canadian pop superstar’s ex Selena Gomez. He was performing We Don’t Talk Anymore, the track he recorded with the Latina, at the time “There might have been a lot of emotion that night, a lot of thoughts going through my head and maybe just, sort of, maybe I shouldn’t have said that,” Puth tells the Bizarre Life podcast. “It’s not really fair to him.” “But we’ve come across each other since then and he posted that he liked my song, Attention, on his Instagram, so we are good. There’s been a handshake.” Puth previously took to Twitter to assure Bieber fans his comment was intended as a joke. “What I said at the concert last night about Justin was meant to be a joke,” he wrote, insisting he considered himself a “massive” Bieber fan. But he later removed the post. Since the drama, Puth has lost touch with Selena, but he’s still very fond of her and has been keeping up with her recent health troubles and kidney transplant drama. “I was friends with her,” he says. “I haven’t talked to her recently, I know she just went through that kidney transplant. That must be gruelling. I haven’t talked to her in a really long time but she seems very happy. I just want her to be very, very happy.” Meanwhile, Selena recently ended her romance with The Weeknd and appears to have reconciled with Justin - the on-off lovers have recently been spending a lot of time together and sources claim they are an item again.

Nicki Minaj’s brother guilty of rape

Nicki Minaj’s brother has been found guilty of predatory sexual assault against a child. Jelani Maraj pleaded not guilty to allegations he sexually assaulted a 12-year-old for months prior to his arrest in December, 2015. He was subsequently charged with three counts, but a judge overseeing the case agreed to drop one at the request of the prosecution. Maraj was still still facing a felony second-degree charge of sexual conduct and a misdemeanour count of acting in a manner likely to injure a child, and on Thursday (09Nov17) he was convicted of predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering the welfare of a child. He faces 25 years to life in prison and will be sentenced on 14 December (17). Maraj’s lawyer is reportedly planning to appeal the verdict. “We hope that today’s verdict will help the family in the healing process,” Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas tells TMZ. During the trial, Maraj’s lawyer claimed the child’s mother, Jelani’s estranged wife Jacqueline Robinson, set him up as part of a $25 million (£19 million) extortion plot, just four months after they wed. Robinson, who filed for divorce last year (16), denied the allegations during her testimony, while the court also heard evidence from the alleged victim and her younger brother, who claimed he walked in on Maraj assaulting the girl, who did not take the witness stand. The famous sister of the accused has never commented on the case publicly, but she did help to secure her brother’s freedom following his arrest by putting up two of her homes for collateral as she covered his $100,000 bail. She did not appear in court for the proceedings.

to begin. The former Spice Girl accused the producer of being violent during their relationship when she filed documents to end their marriage after almost 10 years in March (17) and obtained a restraining order against him. Their court battle became increasingly messy over the ensuing months and they were due to face off in court on Monday, but both parties appeared in a Los Angeles court on Thursday and revealed they had reached a settlement. Belafonte’s lawyer Grace Jamra told Judge Mark Juhas, “All the issues before you including the domestic violence restraining order and custody of a minor child have been dissolved.” Sean Macias, Mel’s lawyer, told the judge: “We all came to an agreement in principle late last night. We are pretty much done in principle.” Outside the courthouse, her family law mediator Shaun Collinson said, “She stood her ground. Amazing job. We replaced the DV (Domestic Violence Restraining Order) with a private settlement agreement and we’re moving forward.” Collinson added that the estranged couple were getting close to reaching an agreement over custody of their sixyear-old daughter Madison. Belafonte posted a video on Instagram to celebrate the settlement. “Today’s a beautiful day, I’m just leaving court, you know what I’ve gotta tell ya, I’m the happiest guy in the world today,” he said. “It’s about family, family has been restored, you know I want to thank my family lawyers because they are a family and helped me mentally and legally. “I’m just glad the cloud of suspicion of domestic violence is no longer over my head and I, my God, Angel I love you, Madison I love you, Phoenix I love you, Giselle I love you. I love my children.” The settlement means they can now move forward with their divorce hearings. Belafonte’s lawyers said they are still to resolve disputes over property, shared possessions and his access to Angel, Mel B’s daughter with Eddie Murphy. The 42-year-old also obtained a restraining order against former nanny Lorraine Gilles, but that is close to being resolved as well, Gilles’ lawyer told the court. 26

Garth Brooks admits lip syncing CMA Awards performance after fan backlash Garth Brooks has admitted he lip synced his performance at the CMA (Country Music Association) Awards on Wednesday night. The 55-year-old singer was just one of the winners at the ceremony, which was also televised, taking home the top award for Entertainer of the Year. However, Garth attracted criticism from fans when he performed his track Ask Me How I Know, with many slamming him for clearly not performing live. “Really, @garthbrooks.... REALLY?? Everyone’s up there shouting u out for being a ‘legend’ and you’re gonna freaking lip sync overdramatically like a fool to your own song?? #Over. #CMAS #CMAawards #GarthBrooks #Garth #Nashville,” one wrote. Another tweeted, “Garth Brooks is REALLY bad at lip syncing”, while a third posted, “Worst lip syncing I’ve ever seen. #GarthBrooks #CMAawards.” Speaking to journalists backstage after his performance, Garth admitted he had used a pre-recorded live track to lip sync to, citing sickness and his 12 show run in just 10 days as the reason he made the compromise. “Right now we’re in the middle of 12 shows in 10 days,” he told Fox News “We’ve got four days (where) we’re doing two shows a day. We decided to lip sync it because my voice just isn’t going anywhere, and we wanted to represent country music the best we can.” Garth’s Entertainer of the Year win was the second consecutive year he’s taken home the award, and his sixth win of the gong overall. Reba McEntire presented him with this year’s honour, with Garth acknowledging her and the rest of his country music “family” during his acceptance speech. “Getting this presented to me by the entertainer of a lifetime, I thank you,” he said. “Miranda (Lambert) said it best, Little Big Town said it best - we’re a family. All you guys down here on the front row: We can all agree on one thing. Let’s all raise a toast... to the band and crew. I was talking to Kelsea (Ballerini) backstage about how we get to do this for a living. The most important thing other than God... is you (fans). I love you guys. We’re a family.”

Pianist Kory Caudill stirred the music world with his “Song For Appalachia” single and music video earlier this year, and he has announced the release of Christmas with Kory Caudill & Friends. The 11-song collection includes timeless standards and the stirring new lullaby “Sleepy Little Baby Boy.” Produced by Caudill and Jamie Tate, the new album will be available on Rukkus Room Records. “When Jamie, myself and the band set out to make a Christmas record, we knew there were several routes we could take in terms of our approach,” said Caudill. “Ultimately, we wanted to make a Christmas record that allowed folks to feel the same enthusiasm about the season when they listen to it as we felt when we recorded the album.”

Demented Punk today announced its inaugural release, Dr Demmento Covered In Punk, a special two-hour demented punk extravaganza featuring an eclectic mix of artists from the world of classic and contemporary punk/indie/alt-rock, along with special guest stars from film, TV and more. This audio oddity is a modern-day homage to radio icon Dr. Demento, a world-renowned institution who has championed novelty music and its creators since the 1970s, will be released on January 12, 2018 by both physical and digital retailers. “I’ve been a fan of Dr. Demento nearly my entire life,” said album producer and participant, John Cafiero. “The Doc’s show has introduced audiences to counter culture and an eclectic talent pool of humor-infused music for nearly five decades; creating a musical movement that echoes the spirit of punk with its own unique voice. There are no airs, and everyone’s welcome. If you didn’t fit in- you fit in.” NMW - NOVEMBER 17, 2017

Beyonce in trademark battle over Ivy Park clothing line

Beyonce’s lawyers are involved in a SINGLE legal battle with TW ARTIST a company who have applied to trademark a name very similar to her Ivy Park clothing brand. The Sweet Dreams singer launched her activewear clothing collection in stores and online on 14 April, 2016, the same day that a company named 47/72 Inc. filed an application to trademark the name Poison Ivy Park. According to the U.S. Trademark and Patent Office’s database, the company bosses plan to use the trademark for online retail store services which will feature shirts, hooded sweatshirts, sweatshirts, one-piece clothing for babies, mobile electronics cases, posters, throw pillows, mugs and tote bags. Beyonce’s legal team have filed an opposition to the application, claiming that Poison Ivy Park is too similar to Ivy Park and would damage her clothing brand and its reputation and confuse customers, according to legal documents obtained by The Blast. Representatives for 47/72 Inc. responded by saying their name was distinctive due to the extra word “Poison” so there should be no confusion. The legal battle has been ongoing for months and Beyonce’s lawyers have accused the company of being reluctant to hand over necessary documents, while 47/72 founder and chief executive Mike Lin allegedly emailed her legal team saying he couldn’t respond quickly and needed more time because he was suffering from depression. The lawyers believe he is making an excuse, claiming that the doctor’s note Lin provided wasn’t authentic. According to The Blast, 47/72 Inc. has unsuccessfully tried to trademark Let It Go, inspired by the hit song from 2013 Disney animation Frozen, Swiftie, the name of Taylor Swift fans, and still has an application pending for 99 Problems, a song by Beyonce’s husband JAY-Z.

Taylor Swift confirms Ed Sheeran and Future collaboration for album

Taylor Swift has confirmed she collaborated with Ed Sheeran and Future on a track for her new album Reputation. The 27-year-old singer is gearing up to release her sixth record on Friday (10Nov17). However, after the

track listing was leaked online, Taylor decided to give fans a look at the official line-up for the upcoming offering. Alongside the caption “3 days until #reputation”, LABEL Taylor listed all 15 songs on the record, including End Game, next to which was written “Feat. Ed Sheeran and Future”. The picture also listed a handful of production credits for the album. Taylor is listed as executive producer and co-producer for the LP, while Jack Antonoff, Max Martin and Shellback are among the other co-producers. Meanwhile, eight-time Grammy award winning sound engineer Serban Ghenea was responsible for mixing the record. The confirmed Reputation track listing comes amid claims Taylor will withhold the record from streaming services when it’s released. According to Bloomberg, Reputation will be withheld from streaming for at least its first week after release, though the outlet notes that Taylor is “reportedly still negotiating the specifics with various platforms”. The album will still be available through digital retailers such as iTunes despite its absence from streaming sites like Spotify. In 2014 Taylor pulled her entire back catalogue off the streaming service after she slammed them and other music streaming companies in an op-ed she wrote criticising them for offering fans the chance to listen to their idol’s music without paying the artist themselves. “It’s my opinion that music should not be free,” she wrote at the time. However, rapper and producer Diplo, who has been involved in a long-running feud with the Look What You Made Me Do singer, revealed his thoughts on why Taylor has distanced herself from streaming in a new interview with Rolling Stone magazine. “Music is in the hands of the kids. Streaming is literally what kids want to listen to over and over again,” he told the publication. “They want to listen to (Post Malone’s) Rockstar and (Cardi B’s) Bodak Yellow – they don’t want to listen to, like, (Taylor Swift’s) Look What You Made Me Do. “That music doesn’t relate to them at all. I don’t think it ever did. They were only given that, by radio and marketing budgets. I’m impressed with Post Malone. I can relate to him more than Taylor Swift.”

BIG LOUD RECORDS is proud to announce the signing of Country star JAKE OWEN, who comes on board the innovative label today last week. With this move, Owen is reunited with one of the founders of the Big Loud organization Joey Moi, who produced Owen’s breakthrough album, BAREFOOT BLUE JEAN NIGHT, which garnered four consecutive #1 hits. “I couldn’t be more excited to start this new chapter in my career with Big Loud,” Owen says. “The passion for success that everyone has in the building is contagious. Combining what I already do with Big Loud’s expertise is exciting, and I am eager to get to work with Joey Moi again. We had great success in the past and I’m looking forward to what the future holds for all of us.” In becoming the newest member of the Big Loud family, Owen will have the full support of a forward-thinking staff hungry to continue shaking up Country’s conventional wisdom.

The wait is officially over as Black River Entertainment recording artist Kelsea Ballerini’s much-anticipated sophomore album, Unapologetically, is available everywhere today. “Unapologetically” means leading with your heart, trusting it, following it and not letting other people’s opinions sway it,” Ballerini reveals. “From heartbreak to finding the love of my life and embracing the ‘in between’ – this album is all in order, just like it happened. Loss, life, love… this is my story, unapologetically.” Produced by Forest Glen Whitehead and Jason Massey – in addition to Shane McAnally, Lindsay Rimes, and Jimmy Robbins on select tracks – Unapologetically spotlights 12 tunes written or co-written by Ballerini. Penned with “blood, sweat, and heartbeats,” the striking successor to her critically acclaimed, Gold-certified The First Time, exposes the intimate journey of loss, life, and love that the Country star has experienced since her history-making debut album.

Brett Eldredge is closing out the year on a very upbeat note. His new and exciting “The Long Way” (Atlantic Nashville) is pulling in a great number of early believers. That’s the sign we look for that lets us know that he’s truly on the right track. I’m really loving the new Justin Moore single. “Kinda Don’t Care” (Valory Music/Universal) underscores just how big this guy has become over the past few years. He’s packing venues and breaking hit after hit, so you could also say that he’s had a very good year indeed. Lady Antebellum are keeping pace with the best of the Country artists and they are doing it in style. “Heart Break” (Capitol Nashville) is their latest and a reminder that this crew has not lost their touch in any way. It’s a solid track that deserves your support and attention. Also happy to see my good pal Lee Brice continue his streak of hits. He does it in a family way as his single “Boy” (Curb) takes flight. One of the true gents of Country, Lee deserves all of the good fortunes that have come his way over the past few years. Cole Swindell is also on the move and make no mistake about that. His new and powerful “Stay Downtown” (WB/WEA) is keeping pace with the rest of the others in some knee- deep traffic but seems to be holding its own. Happy to see a little love and support to one special Montgomery Gentry. The fans are responding big time to the heartfelt single “Better Me” (Average Joes Entertainment) that is keeping the spirit of this team alive and well. Scotty McCreery is still feeling the love and respect for his large popular following as his “Five More Minutes” (Dagum Music) brings in more stations piece by piece. The paring of Maren Morris and Vince Gill are bringing good fortune to both. Together they take the single “Dear Hate” (Columbia Nashville) out for a spin and regardless of who’s driving, the song is being quite well received. Speaking of paring up, how about Roy Orbison and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. You can’t do any better than that and together they take “I Drove All Night” (Legacy/RCA) up the Country charts. Dori Freeman has a good thing going from coast to coast. “Turtle Dove” (Mri) is the gem that appears to be well on its way to hit making status so there you go. Lindsey Stirling has joined forces with Rooty for a real winner. Many of our music and program directors are singing the praises of “Love’s Just A Feeling” (IN2) and for good reason, it’s just that good. Bill Nash is feeling the love with his new single entitled “Back The Badge” (Ind) so you may want to give that one some love and attention. Also in the hunt for adds and spins is Casey Donahew. The new and ever so powerful anthem “Country Song” (Almost Country Entertainment) is helping to make that all happen. Luke Bryan has another monster single at Country that is already moving to the very top of the charts. “Light It Up” (Capitol Nashville) is his latest and if you saw his special onABC recently, you learned even more about why this guy is where he is today. Country recording artist Lindsay Ell is wasting no time in getting radio’s attention. The new and exciting “Waiting On You” (Stoney Creek) is the one that our programmers are raving about. Also getting raves is the latest from Jessica Lynn. “Crazy Idea” (Daydreamer) is about as good as it gets and make sure to spend some extra time on this gem. Chuck Murphy and his band Big Coyote have been having a banner 2017. All you have to do is look at the stats of his “Free To Be Free” (One West) from Country to Mainstream and that will tell you all you need to know. Al & Trey have a good thing going once again at the country format. Their new “Reach Beyond” (Tide Productions) is already reaching new heights and that’s all you really need to know about this fast-breaking masterpiece. Eileen Carey has also had one of her best years to date. We have to give her big congratulations has her “Good Bad Girl” pulled off some amazing chart success from country to mainstream. All of the above deserve your very special attention when it comes to our annual New Music Awards so get to our sight and get your votes in there. Here’s hoping that all of you have a very Merry Christmas and an even better New Year. I hope to see you in Nashville if you get the chance to do some traveling this holiday season.

C arrie Underwood is no stranger to the word “reality.” After all, as the winner of the 2005 season of “American Idol,” she won the hearts of millions of viewers across the world. Now, the singer has entered into a promotion that is sure to please her fan following. S ony Music Nashville and Aurasma, the world’s leading augmented reality platform, have partnered to launch an augmented reality promotional campaign for Underwood’s No. 1 album, “Blown Away,” which was released in May. U sing the free Aurasma Lite app for iPhones, iPads and Android devices available from the iTunes App Store and Google Play, fans can launch exclusive video of Underwood that is triggered by aiming the device at the cover image of Blown Away. The video leaps from the Blown Away image on the mobile device or tablet and provides a click-through gateway to the album at the iTunes store. The promotion was launched in Nashville recently at the CMA Music Festival.

“ Carrie Underwood is always looking for ways to connect with her fans,” said Gary Overton, Sony Music Nashville chairman and chief executive officer. “We are excited to embrace a cutting-edge technology like augmented reality to help give fans something special and provide a cool, unique connection between the artist and audience. Sony Music Nashville is excited to watch this fun idea unfold and is eager to partner with Aurasma on other future campaigns.” U pon its release on May 1, “Blown Away” made history by debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country albums sales chart making Underwood only the second country artist in the 47 year history of the chart to have each of their first four albums debut at No. 1. “Blown Away” also debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart making Underwood only the second country artist in history to have three consecutive albums debut at No. 1. “Blown Away” became country’s best-selling digital album debut since 2010. “ Carrie Underwood is a proven superstar. We are thrilled to partner with Sony Music Nashville to help increase the momentum of her smash album Blown Away,” said Jennifer Rapp, general manager of Aurasma. “By leveraging augmented reality to bridge the physical and virtual worlds, Sony gives the fans something exclusive and special, helping to keep fans connected and Carrie in the spotlight.” T he free Aurasma app runs on iPhone 3GS (and above), iPad2 (and above), and high-powered Android devices. Y esterday, Underwood performed the first of four concerts on the Australian leg of her tour to promote “Blown Away.” She kicked things off in Melbourne, and will perform in Tamworth and Brisbane on Friday and Saturday, before finishing things in Sydney on Sunday. Also, Underwood has just released the title cut as the second single -- to follow up the chart-topping success of “Good Girl,” which became her fifteenth number one record.

Country Date To Remember: February 11, 1962 Somewhere, around Fenton, Mo, there are some students who can say that they had one of music’s sexiest performers as a teacher. Sheryl Crow - long before she hit it big in 1993 with “All I Wanna Do,” was actually a music teacher at Kellison Elementary School. Though her teaching days in school are long over, Crow - who turns an amazing 50 years old today has educated many of her fans about some of Country Music’s greatest performers, such as Loretta, Hank, and Johnny Cash. Happy Birthday to one of Rock’s top women! NMW - NOVEMBER 17, 2017

This is our Best Of 2013…so far issue. Throughout this musical visit you will see many Indie artists rising to the top of our charts and a lot of the music perfect for your Summer playlist. You may want to consider being on our Future Hits volume #43. This compilation will get your song to “all of radio” and all tracks will be also serviced digitally through Airplay Access. Contact us this week and make yourself a part of music history. Are you up on These Hearts? Ryan Saunders, vocals, Kyle Colby, guitar/vocals Isaiah Folk, drums, Daryl Van Beek, guitar and Tyler Rice, bass make up this super red hot band. The recent release of the lyric video for “Miserable” has ignited their fans anticipation for their forthcoming sophomore album “Yours To Take” available this month. The new album can be heard live on the band’s headlining album release tour beginning in Joliet, IL. The band’s sound is a combination of honest, refreshing, spirited pitch-perfect harmonies with dynamic and emotive breakdowns. Carrying the torch lit by iconic Victory bands A Day To Remember and Taking Back Sunday, These Hearts has arrived and you read and hear about them first right here at New Music Weekly. The New York based indie rock band Born Cages is set to release their Sidelines EP via Razor & Tie. The band will hit the road this summer as well. Born Cages new EP was produced by Jon Kaplan (Walk The Moon, Augustana) and Oliver Straus (Arctic Monkeys, Matt & Kim) at Mission Sound in Brooklyn, NY. The band is finishing up their debut full length album to be released later this year. The New York City based Born Cages formed in 2011. Within one year the young band had already released an EP, opened two sold-out shows for Guns N’ Roses and shared stages with such bands as Gold Fields, Mother Mother, and Ludo. The band has had music played on Q104.3 in New York and recently recorded a session at the Gibson NYC showroom that premiered on Purevolume. They were also featured on a large billboard in Times Square as part of a Toshiba promotion. Born Cages is Vlad Holiday (lead vocals/lead guitar), Amanda Carl (keyboards/backing vocals), Steve Kellner (bass guitar/backing vocals) and Dave Tantao (drums). John Tejada has a new exclusive mix for Halocyan Records entitled “Somewhere” via Pitchfork. Have you been following Halocyan Records? This is a global dance brand and record label launched by Dimitri Fergadis, an acclaimed musician and founder of the LA-based experimental electronica label Phthalo Records. Halocyan is dedicated to representing not just the present and future of electronic music, but also its rich history. Halocyan believes that a strong sense of historical roots is an essential launching pad for bold voyages into the unknown. New York City-based retro songstress Joanne Weaver sets out to the Dominican Republic this month to shoot her new music video for “Nature Boy”, the latest single off her debut album Interstellar Songbook which she released in June of last year.
