ABOUT SZA

One of the redefining voices of today’s contemporary music era, SZA’s singles “Love Galore” featuring Travis Scott and “Drew Barrymore,” led the way for the long-awaited and critically-acclaimed release of Ctrl, her major label debut album on TDE/RCA. Revered for its raw and honest lyrics, Ctrl debuted at No. 1 on the music charts and is currently RIAA certified Gold, while “Love Galore” is certified Platinum.

ABOUT TY DOLLA $IGN

Ty Dolla $ign has been an in-demand writer, producer, and featured artist since helming YG’s 2010 smash, “Toot It and Boot It.” Ty Dolla $ign made a major splash with 2014’s critically-acclaimed BEACH HOUSE EP, highlighted by the RIAA platinum certified “Paranoid (Feat. B.o.B)” and 3x platinum smash, “Or Nah (Feat. Wiz Khalifa & The Weeknd).” He’s also been credited with writing several hits such including Rihanna’s 3X platinum hit “FourFiveSeconds” with Kanye West and Paul McCartney, Chris Brown’s “Loyal,” and most recently Gucci Mane’s “Enormous.” Ty is among the most popular featured artist of the modern era.

Ty’s second studio album, BEACH HOUSE 3, was released on October 27 via Atlantic Records.

ABOUT CHEAT CODES

Cheat Codes isn’t just the musical union of Trevor Dahl, Matthew Russell and Kevin Ford — it’s also a mantra. The members of the electronic dance music outfit may have arguably figured out the secret to life — or at least a way to jump right to the good part. The group recently released the track “Feels Great,” which is the follow-up to Cheat Codes’ U.S. smash hit song “No Promises” featuring Demi Lovato, which is climbing the charts. The group’s single - their first via 300 Entertainment - has reached double 2X Platinum status globally with over 433 million cumulative streams, and has just surpassed 1 million sales equivalents in North America.
