Joslyn Sky, aka, JSKY, is a singer/songwriter who creates to inspire and leave the world a more beautiful place. The song is made to evoke runway-style confidence, having collaborated with OCFASHIONWEEK, Bohorockercollection, and Nikol Davis for the music video coming with the single.

Electronic piano chords support JSKY’s incredible voice, brimming with impressive control and confidence. “Walk, walk, let your legs talk” is a repeatable chorus that is spoken to the listener in a Mother of Drag tone, capturing the song’s danceability factor. The drums, synth, and textural elements make it a perfect blend for listeners seeking happy music.

She has performed for over 20,000 people at the Puerto Rican Festival in Charlotte, NC, and at a Breast Cancer Awareness event in Albany, NY.

Lexy Panterra Drops Empowered Female Joint, ‘Bad Bitch.’

Following the release of her pop single ‘Simple Life,’ first-generation Iranian-American artist LEXY PANTERRA has released her empowered female focused single, ‘Bad Bitch, This ‘woman’s- first’ anthem is a catchy rap/hip-hop track that promotes being your authentic self; equating it to being a bad bitch. On the revitalizing single, Panterra finds herself reminding the world that we all are confident and should be proud of ourselves.

The accompanying music video includes a diverse array of women celebrating what makes them confident and beautiful. The creative use of ethnic diversity is eye-catching as she highlights women of different races and ethnicities, including women in hijabs in various states of dress and undress, supporting her ongoing attention to amplifying her own background and cultural values. The repetitive lyrics “I’m a bad bitch” reinforce the mantra-like message that aims to inspire her fans to be their most confident version of themselves without needing anyone’s validation. The visual narrative gathers her friends to learn the steps she’s taken to become the “bad bitch” we know Lexy to be, and pushes them to take charge and be the freest, most independent versions of themselves.

“I’ve been experimenting with music for a long time and I love all kinds of genres. With the last single, “Simple Life”, I really wanted to touch on the simple things in life. With this new single, I really wanted to concentrate on women empowerment and what makes us strong and unique,” said Panterra.

In 2019, she spent nine weeks on the Billboard charts with HARBER for their ‘More Than You’ collaboration. Panterra released her EP ‘A Gemini Valentine’ in January 2020, which was followed by a West Coast tour with DaniLeigh. Lexy’s music shows her versatility as a true musician, including a mix of hits from ‘Virgin Lex,’ Lexy’s fun and care-free alter ego, who is responsible for the more upbeat, fun, hip-hop songs, as well as ballads from Panterra herself, displaying her chops as a singer in acoustic form, a side not enough people have seen or heard from her yet as an artist.

Most known as a bubbly entertainer with a loyal fan base of over 9 million followers, reaching an impressive 500 million views and one billion impressions across her platforms to prove it. As an international artist, Panterra has collaborated with powerhouses Marshmello, and Lil Yachty, to name a few. The artist’s debut EP, ‘A Gemini Valentine’ featured singles ‘Want Him Now’ and ‘Room’ as well as the Mozzy-assisted ‘My Love.’ She also collaborated with the likes of Too $hort (‘Pretty Young Savage’), Shaun Frank (“Where Do You Go”) and more.

Song of the Day: Dancing with Devils of Mine – Buel

BUEL stays true to her own style and dreamy universe with ‘Dancing with Devils of Mine’, an alternative-pop song infused with influences such as Christine And The Queens and Tame Impala. The song is about taking a more individualistic approach to gender and sexuality.

Buel explains the inspiration behind her latest single: “In my opinion society is too involved in individuals’ gender and sexual orientation and this is accepted by most of the people as people from all sides feel the pressure to try to explain what these mean to them and who they are interested in. This acceptance feels a bit like an invasion of privacy to me and I think the more we accept to explain our gender and sexuality to others the more we create space for suppression and judgment. Because these are only feelings and concepts and shouldn’t be treated as solid rock or ‘gold’ for people’s liking or sympathy as I mentioned in the song. Like ‘boys having to act like boys”, or the concept of a “man not being a man or woman”. I believe if we could all accept that these are personal feelings that evolve day to day, there would be more space for privacy and respect.”

From her Indie-Pop songs’ compositions, arrangements, music video directions to stylism and visuals, BUEL handles everything with taste and perfection. Awarded for her work with ‘Lemon Smile’, winning the 2021 London Music Video Festival, BUEL was remarked in 2019 by Adrian Gurvitz, who signed her a production deal with AGM Records UK, upon her release ‘Advice’.

Her previous singles ‘Lemon Smile’ and ‘Small Talk’ have been played on radio stations across the US and the UK, and was listed as best new pop artist by BBC1. Her song ‘Stray Little Legs’ is featured in the movie ‘Let’s Dream’, and ‘Troublemaker’ in the movie ‘My True Fairytale’

BUEL is a one of a kind, promising artist, already praised by her peers, and she will release her first album in 2023.

Watch the music video for ‘Dancing With Devils of Mine’, imagined, produced, directed, choreographed and edited by BUEL herself.
