NOW Night Out feat. Flo Rida
July 14, 2017 – Showtime: 7:30pm, Doors Open: 6:30pm
Over the last several years, Flo Rida has pulled off a pretty neat trick. Not only has the Florida-born rapper become a chart fixture thanks to the blockbuster singles “Low (feat. T-Pain),” “Right Round,” “Club Can’t Handle Me,” and his chart-topping hits, “Good Feeling” and “Wild Ones (feat. Sia),” he’s also broken down barriers by uniting millions of fans of pop, hip-hop, and club music around the world and establishing himself as an international, genre-busting superstar in the process.
In addition to crafting worldwide hits, Flo Rida is also focusing on ushering in a wave of new stars to the music industry by way of his International Music Group (IMG) record label. Artists currently signed to IMG include Hip-Hop newcomer Whyl Chyl, Recording Group on the verge Team Phlyte and Canadian Pop Sensation Tyler Medeiros.
Comprised of three brothers – Adam, Jack, and Ryan – from which the group derives their namesake, AJR first achieved major acclaim with their single “I’m Ready.” The electro-pop smash is certified Platinum with over 18.5 million YouTube views, 44.5 million Spotify streams, a feature in Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck trailer, double platinum certification in Australia and airplay on pop radio stations across the country. AJR’s latest release What Everyone’s Thinking is a 5-song EP decorated with explosive choruses and buoyant synth. Lead single from the EP, “Weak,” has received major acclaim landing them a performance on TODAY on April 5th. It has racked up an impressive 123 Million stream on Spotify alone and has reached Top 30 in over 25 countries.
Allen Gates found his calling with words and used them as a way to communicate through music at an early age. Born in St. Louis, he took his first vulnerable plunge performing for his peers on a class trip. The applause and respect from this hypercritical young crowd validated his talent. “At that point, I realized I was good and I needed to take this seriously,” says Allen. Influenced by LL Cool J, DMX and Jay-Z, Allen has been grinding the hip-hop scene for more than eight years. His honesty and intensity create an energetic and raw impact in a genre that has steered away from its less materialistic roots. His lyrical decisions and sense of discovery work in the studio and carry over to the stage where he puts it all out there for his fans.
