Max Bennett Kelly, the Seattle-born/LA-based artist, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, has recently released his new single “Superinlove (Roll Credits),” along with a music video. The song is a preview of Max’s forthcoming EP, “Junk Male,” set to be released this summer. In “Superinlove,” Max reflects on his relationship with a fellow artist in LA and the effect it had on his music career. The song features Max’s signature catchy hooks, unpredictable soundscapes, and cleverly candid storytelling.

Max has already made a name for himself with his previous releases, earning tens of millions of streams and attracting a global fanbase. He gained further attention when a snippet of his song “Happy, Healthy, Well-Adjusted” went viral on TikTok, receiving millions of views and even getting noticed by Netflix. The success of his music allowed him to focus on his music full-time, after going through unconventional means to get by, including participating in clinical trials. CONTINUE READING


There is a lot of talk about Capitol Records’ decision not to renew their contract with Halsey, despite their previous success together. The label had renegotiated Halsey’s deal when she was at the peak of her popularity, but her latest album, If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power, produced by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, did not perform as well as expected, leading to an unrecouped position of over $25 million. This, along with a lack of strong streaming numbers, ultimately led to the label ending their collaboration with Halsey.

Halsey’s departure from Capitol, along with Anitta and Miranda Lambert’s free agency, indicates a shift towards major labels parting ways with artists when the relationship becomes untenable. However, it may be difficult for Halsey to secure a new deal with a major label or publishing company.

While Anitta has not achieved enormous success in the U.S., her global success and strong live draw make her a desirable artist. Lambert, on the other hand, has seen decreasing numbers with each release, with her latest album, Palomino, only amassing just over 350k in activity. CONTINUE READING
