The song is about love and money. Despite the fact that money might not bring you happiness, you can use it to buy things that make you happy.
“I wish for people to feel good when they listen to my music and capture in their lives what they truly need. Lately, I’ve been in an immensely good mood, which I would like to share with everyone. For me, this is what ‘Money Money’ is about—good vibes, happiness, and the law of attraction.” – Roxen explained
Roxen has managed to capture the attention of the audience with her unique voice and timbre. She has already topped radio charts and collaborated with the best producers and artists out there. Also, she has amassed over 73 million views on Youtube alongside millions of streams across all platforms. Her music has been present internationally on the biggest music channels. Plus, her Eurovision track, “Amnesia,” peaked in Spotify Top 200 and Viral 50 charts in over 17 countries and #8 on Apple’s Pop Romania chart.
OSKA is a talented Vienna-based singer-songwriter from a small village in Lower Austria. Not too long ago, she released an appealing indie-pop tune, entitled, “Starstruck,” which addresses the difficulties of navigating romance in the Gen Z age. The bittersweet tune follows OSKA’s previously released singles: Woodstock, Crooked Teeth, and Lousy T-Shirt. All three tunes will be featured on her upcoming debut album, entitled, “My World, my Love, Paris,” set to be released on February 25, 2022, via Nettwerk Records.
“This song was inspired by one of my favorite movies, ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.’ It’s about celebrating someone great that is in your life while also dealing with the fear of losing them.” – OSKA explained
OSKA is no stranger to heartache. She knows how to get over something or someone and laugh it off in a charming way. The songstress moved to Vienna at the age of 18 to study her first love—music. During that time, she busked in the streets and squares of the capital while studying pop and jazz singing. Since then, she has worked tirelessly drafting and crafting her sound. The songs on her debut EP, “Honeymoon Phase,” have amassed over four million Spotify streams and won her the XA Music Export Award at Waves Vienna Festival 2020.
Clarees (Clarissa Schöppe) is a 21-year-old Amsterdam-based singer-songwriter and dancer from Berlin, Germany. Not too long ago, she released an appealing music video for her “Inhale” single, which contains a dreamy narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and emotional melodies that will resonate well with fans of Rita Ora, Mable, and Jess Glynne. The radio-friendly tune serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear from Clarees in the near future.
“My new song, ‘Inhale,’ is where you literally ‘inhale’ new energy, freedom, love, and the desire to live. The music brings us the feeling that we can achieve anything, that nothing is wrong. Our childhood friends such as Tinkerbell and Peterpan help us and let the fantasy that one often forgets in everyday life return.” – Clarees explained
A life without music would be out of the question for Clarees, who grew up in a family of actors. Her soul, love, every single vein in her life, lives for the music. At the age of 15, she wanted to leave her village to travel the world. She lived in Mexico for a year and then graduated from high school. Shortly after, she participated in the TV show, German Idol, and was voted into the semi-finals by the judges (Dieter Bohlen, Pietro Lombardi, Xavier Naidoo, and Oana Nechiti) and the audience. After that, she signed her first exclusive “label and management contract” and worked on her first pop songs with producers likes Bülent Aris (Backstreet Boys, Sarah Conner). In July 2020, she dissolved this contract again.
Lara Samira is a 20-year-old singer-songwriter from Berlin, Germany. Not too long ago, she and Maxé (an Italian-German DJ, producer, songwriter, and singer) released a lyric video for their “Wicked Game” single, a dancefloor-friendly reinterpretation of Chris Isaak’s classic love tune bearing the same title.
“The world was on fire and no one could save me but you. It’s strange what desire will make foolish people do. I never dreamed that I’d meet somebody like you. And I never dreamed that I’d lose somebody like you. No, I don’t wanna fall in love. No, I don’t wanna fall in love with you. What a wicked game you play, to make me feel this way. What a wicked thing to do, to let me dream of you.” – lyrics
Lara Samira reads like a beloved poem. Good friends call her Lara and her parents gave her the second name Samira, sounding like a gentle breeze. The young artist feels she has entered a new chapter in her career and is rewriting her poem into a bolder story with more attitude. She describes her music as “imperfectly perfect” like perfect cracks on an imperfect ceiling. She’s mysterious with enchanting vocals and honest lyrics with an edge. Through music, Lara wants to inspire, motivate, and shine bright for the people who haven’t figured out how to do it on their own.
Amea (Emma Amalie Jensen) is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter from Denmark. Not too long ago, she released an appealing music video for her “Billion” single, which draws inspiration from ‘90s pop, and the overall message is “no such thing as too much.” It is evident that Amea has grown up in the Britney Spear era, which particularly comes across in the phone conversation in the song’s intro and outro.
“‘Billion’ is your opportunity to dance on the table in stilettos and a sparkling dress while pouring champagne all over your friends. And loudly proclaiming that you’ll handle the bill even though you’re aware that your money is probably better spent on something else.” – Amea explained
‘Billion’ is the soundtrack of Amea – the provincial girl who never felt suppressed by restrictions. She was a child who secretly stood on the neighbor’s fields and sang to herself.
Yayo Brinks is an up-and-coming rap artist. Not too long ago, she released an appealing music video for her “Change” single, which finds Yayo giving listeners a glimpse into her life. She raps about haters and doubters and the lack of love she experienced while trying to accomplish her goals. Numb to all the pain, Yayo has persevered fairly well so far, and subsequently gained some knowledge that has healed her in a life-changing way. Later, she makes a wise remark, “You could give someone all your love but sh*t don’t ever stay the same.”
“The track has a few different topics, but all the same vibe. To sum it up, it’s basically a realistic view on life and how you gotta be ready ‘cause it’s gonna put you through some change. It’s a catchy, upbeat, and honest reflection of what I’ve been feeling lately and what I feel like people can relate to. ‘My energy is coming preeminent, the knowledge I picked up got me healing different.’ I’m just speaking real life.” – Yayo Brinks explained

The nostalgic tune contains a relatable narrative, pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with fans of SWV, Beyoncé, H.E.R., and Ella Mai. Also, “High” possesses melodic instrumentation flavored with a warm contemporary R&B vibration. Furthermore, “High” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear from Elise Stein in the near future.
“This song is about finding love after being single for a long time. The single captures the butterflies and fireworks of this time and how you literally feel ‘High’ from how happy you are with them.” – Elise Stein explained

Furthermore, “Mamma” follows on the heels of Rose’s “Long Time Running” single. Both tunes are featured on her 10-track album, entitled, “Raise Your Voice.”
“Growing up, I took in whatever I heard on the radio. I didn’t know anything about listening to an album from cover to cover and appreciating concepts. It felt like a challenge to sum up my life experiences in 10 songs for the album. But looking at it now, I think it’s a good starting point.” – December Rose explained
Nordi Blu is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles, California. Not too long ago, she released a heartfelt indie-folk tune, entitled, “China Doll,” written when Nordi was 17 years old. The emotional, heart-wrenching tune is about a violent loss of innocence. The song reminds listeners that tomorrow always comes—a sign of hope, helping to heal the trauma.
Furthermore, “China Doll” contains ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with fans of ZZ Ward, Janis Joplin, and Dorothy. The likable tune serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear on Nordi Blu’s forthcoming debut album. The project, produced by Alex Sprave, approaches delicate themes such as growing up, addiction, and the concept of home.
The location is South-side Jamaica, a rough and tough neighborhood in Queens, New York, and home to Babita Harris, an uninsured single parent who falls ill after returning home from vacation. She is taken to a hospital, where Salome McBryant diagnoses her with having black fever disease, which has done a significant amount of damage to her liver. With a couple of months to live, Babita's only hope of survival is a costly liver transplant. But with no health insurance, the chance of surgery is slim. What she needs is a quarter of a million dollars in cash. And that's when Barnes, her only son, along with his best friends, Demus and Baker, spring into dangerous action to get the money. Though their road is paved with good intentions, the brothers in arms are in for a few surprises and a whole lot of heat in this supernatural thriller which tells two remarkable tales of crime and redemption.
Barnes, Demus, and Baker are back with another actioned-packed adventure. This time, they travel to Monomotapa, Alkebulan, where the king and queen were recently slain by Ego, a familiar nemesis whom the three Black boys thought they had destroyed in the afterlife. But they were deeply mistaken. Now, Ego has in his possession The Hotep Brother Manuscript, a sacred book filled with spiritual laws and enchanting spells, which he uses to turn the Monomotapan military into Egomaniacs. By his side is Deadra, a divine entity, and their goal is to rule Monomotapa and discontinue all shipments of gold to Planet Black, the home of the deities. Currently, the black planet is vulnerable, protected by a thin layer of gold that is quickly depleting. With the threat of an incoming meteoroid shower looming, there’s no telling what might happen to Planet Black if a large shipment of gold doesn’t arrive there soon.
