TouchTunes Interactive Networks, the largest interactive out-of-home entertainment network in North America, has released news of its network’s latest nationwide promotions which include music from Yo Gotti, Maná, Ty Stone and Breathe California. Full details on each upcoming promotion include:
Yo Gotti New Album – Live from the Kitchen
As one of the five epicenters of Southern Hip-Hop, Memphis has always had a thriving underground music scene capable of producing major hip -hop platinum superstars such as Eightball & MJG and Three 6 Mafia. Next to look out for is Yo Gotti, M-Town’s current rap kingpin. One of the hottest young rappers on the rise, Tennessee-born Yo Gotti made waves in the early 2000’s with the release of Life, which featured Lil Jon on the song “Dirty South Soldiers” and Back 2 da Basics, which included the locally popular singles “I Got ‘Em” and “Gangsta Party.” A street rapper who gets his inspiration from Memphis’ more dangerous neighborhoods, Yo Gotti has been called “The Next Jeezy.” On January 10, 2012, TouchTunes will promote Gotti’s first major label release through RCA Records, Live From The Kitchen. Featuring production by Cool & Dre, DJ Toomp and Shawty Redd, the album is expected to skyrocket Gotti from a local celebrity to a national sensation.
Maná New Single – “El Verdadero Amor Perdona (ft. Prince Royce)”
Over the course of their three plus decade career, the Latin rock band Maná has won numerous awards, including three Grammy Awards, seven Latin Grammy Awards, five MTV Latin America Video Music Awards, and nine Billboard Latin Music Awards. Formed in 1978 in Guadalajara, Mexico, super-group Maná is considered one of the most internationally successful Latin bands of all time, with 25 million albums sold worldwide. The group, originally called Sombrero Verde, released their self-titled debut in 1981 and in 1983 released A Tiempo de Rock. Under the name Maná, the band has released a total of eight albums. Their latest 2011 set, Drama y Luz, featured the hit single “Lluvia al Corazón, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Tracks chart and #5 on the Billboard 200. In support of the album’s continued success, TouchTunes will promote the Drama y Luz’s third single, “El Verdadero Amor Perdona (ft. Prince Royce),” at targeted Latin locations nationwide.
Ty Stone New Single – American Style
Detroit-native Ty Stone arrived on the country music scene with his single “American Style,” which was executive produced by Stone’s mentor, the esteemed Kid Rock. The driving force behind Stone’s industry initiation, Kid Rock not only executive produced “American Style,” but also took Stone on as the opening act on two recent Born Free arena tours. The lead track from Ty Stone’s upcoming debut album, “American Style,” is unmistakably autobiographical, focusing on Stone’s own family and the extended family he finds in all Americans. No doubt an anthem for community and national pride, the single predicts a strong musical future for the relatable and authentic Ty Stone. Starting January 10, 2012, and in anticipation of Stone’s exciting debut, TouchTunes will feature “American Style” across targeted digital jukeboxes nationwide.
Breathe California New Single – Blackout
Electronic pop/rock duo Breathe Carolina is comprised of Colorado natives David Schmitt and Kyle Even, who got their start in 2007 self-producing songs on GarageBand. The pair independently released their first EP, Gossip, which was followed-up in 2008 with a full-length album that featured select songs not included on the original EP. Soon after, Breath Carolina embarked on a tour with punk rock bands Every Avenue and The Morning Of, and later performed to positive reviews on the 2009 Warped Tour. Their second album, Hello Fascination, released that same year, peaking at number 43 on the Billboard 200 and spending approximately two weeks on the chart. This past summer, Breathe Carolina released their third studio album, Hell Is What You Make It, featuring the hit single “Blackout.” An undeniably catchy electro-pop hit, the single premiered on MTV Buzzworthy to positive reviews and starting January 10, 2012, will be featured across TouchTunes digital jukeboxes nationwide.
