La Doña releases debut EP ‘Algo Nuevo’
Latina artist La Doña has officially released her debut Algo Nuevo EP via Human Re-Sources. Produced heavily by Doña herself, the EP includes previously-released singles “Quién Me La Paga” (“Whose Going To Pay For It?” in English), an infectious cumbia-led track that denounces life’s ever-increasing expenses, and the self-coined “femmeton” anthem “Le Lo Lai,” which reverts the machismo paradigm so prevalent in reggaeton and hip-hop.
Speaking on the EP, La Doña says: “Algo nuevo is a gift of something new; it is a statement about the versatility of musical forms and diasporic rhythms; it is a marriage of the traditional with the contemporary; it is an offering and a statement to la raza, the boss girls, las malas, the non-binary and queer homies, ‘I see you, I am you, and I made this for you.'”
The EP is a fruitful and masterful collage of La Doña’s world. The artist composes songs influenced heavily by Bay Area hyphy styles, lowrider culture, Mission muralismo, and musica de la (U.S./Mexico) frontera, while exploring radical brown femininity alongside love and pain.
Algo Nuevo also arrives alongside La Doña’s release show at The Chapel in San Francisco tonight where she’ll be joined by Sazon Libre, Chulita Vinyl Club, and Mariachi Juvenil La Misión.
After touring North America in support of Cuco, opening for legendary Mexican rock group Café Tacvba, and being named one of YouTube Music’s Foundry artists with past alumni including Rosalía, Dua Lipa, Chloe X Halle, and Gunna, La Doña is entering 2020 in full force.

Roddy Ricch’s Video Release for ‘The Box’ made the #1 Song in the Country even Hotter
Roddy Ricch has officially dropped the highly anticipated music video for “The Box” on Friday.
The Compton rapper premiered the impressive self-directed visual for “The Box” and there are several boxes scattered implanted in the clip, making the theme cohesive throughout the video.
“The Box” is the chart-topping song featured on Ricch’s debut studio album Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial, and has held the top spot on the Billboard charts for over five consecutive weeks.
In the video, Ricch is seeing scaling buildings, winning car races, lounging in the pool, slam-dunking basketballs and more. It concludes with him in a box factor and ultimately on display in a museum.
Ricch has made major plays this year with his win for Best Rap Performance at the 2020 Grammys for “Racks in the Middle with the late Nipsey Hussle. The Young emcee is currently on the second leg of his first headlining tour with shows coming up in Miami, Washington, D.C., and London.
Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial released Dec. 6. You can stream Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial below via Spotify and grab it on iTunes.
“Heathers”and “Jawbreaker” vibes ooze from The Naked and Famous new video
The Naked and Famous are giving off a dark comedy vibe (think Heathers and Jawbreaker) in a major way with their new music video for their latest song “Bury Us”.
Alisa Xayalith accidentally murders her boyfriend, leading herself to enlist bandmate Thom Powers to help cover up the evidence. Additional chaos ensues all amidst bright colors, perfectly matching the shimmering synth sound of the track.
“Bury Us” is a track off of the duo’s forthcoming album ‘Recover’ which is a full-throttle dosage of the 2010s-era synth pop sound they helped define (remember “Young Blood”?!) mixed with a powerful sentiment of survival, and the very human process of self-preservation — of saving, choosing and celebrating oneself in a world constantly trying to put us down.
