[VIDEO] Jessie J makes US TV debut performing on SNL by wearesme

Last night, the UK’s very own Jessie J made her US television debut, performing on the infamous Saturday Night Live show.

Jessie performed Mamma Knows Best and was later joined on stage by B.O.B. for a performance of Price Tag; both taken from her debut album Who You Are.

“I think it’s probably even more special for a British artist because we’re British. I know Adele’s done it recently and I’m so proud of her and Tinie Tempah’s blowing up here. I just feel like the British movement is coming, like U.K stand up, and I’m flying the flag. To be able to do something like ‘Saturday Night Live’ is part of history.” Jessie told MTV News.

Check out both performances below.

[SME INTRODUCING] Run Jack Run by wearesme

Left to Right: Maz, Skip, Scout

Who? Run Jack Run is a 3 man band made up of two brothers: Skip & Scout (Singers & Professional Actors) and Maz (Producer/DJ). All music is written, produced, performed, mixed & mastered by RJR.

Yard? North London

Signed? It’s only a matter of time

Sounds Like? Grindie

Big Tune? Howl

Not only are SME proud to call these talented chaps our friends, but we also have the pleasure of hearing the amazing results of their new project Run Jack Run and bringing it to the entourage first.

We’ve been waiting patiently for some time as the boys worked hard on this project; desperate to hear the fruits of their labour. But being the perfectionists that they are, we knew it was going to be worth the wait and they certainly didn’t disappoint, going live today with their new website and material.

Below is their debut music video titled Howl, shot and directed by Rohan Blair-Mangat. Atmospheric, artistic, inspirational. And that’s just the video. The song draws on different emotions through Skip & Scout’s contrasting styles over Maz’s productions.

And as if that wasn’t enough, below are some more snippets of what’s to come from the band:

Aged just 21, Yasmin Shahmir posseses incredible talent and is one of Britain’s most promising female artists.

Yasmin was born in Manchester and raised in Glasgow, but it was the city of London which would prove to be the turning point in her life and provide her with the exposure she sought.

Having moved to London at the age of 19 in order to pursue her DJing career, she soon received the recognition she deserved; going on to DJ for the likes of N*E*R*D, Taio Cruz and Eve.

Off the back of her success in DJing, Yasmin decided to pursue a career in singing, and went on to sign a record deal with Levels Entertainment (part of Ministry of Sound). She has since supported Example on his UK tour, featured on the song ‘Runaway’ with East London’s finest MC; Devlin and most recently went on to release her debut single ‘On My Own’ which charted at #39; an impressive achievement for a debut record. Yasmin is also currently working on her debut album with the likes of Jamie XX, Labrinth and Shy FX.

Having seen her tear of the roof dropping endless Hip-Hop bangers during her DJ set at Rock The Belles, we were eager to talk Yasmin and find out if in fact there is anything that this girl can’t do?
Our wish was granted and here’s what we asked the beautiful singer/DJ/model/superwoman. The last one on that list isn’t entirely true; at least as far as we know!


[LISTEN] Ghostpoet – Peanut Butter Blues & Meloncholy Jam (Full Album) by wearesme

We interviewed him last week, and this week Mike Skinner announced that Ghostpoet is his favourite MC alongside Drake; coincidence? SME think not! Get off the band wagon Mike!

All jokes aside, Ghostpoet’s seal of approval is well earned. His incredible debut album ‘Peanut Butter Blues and Meloncholy Jam’ was released yesterday and here’s your chance to try before you buy. The album is so unique and hypnotic; zone out and appreciate.
Oh and then spend your hard earned on it and support exceptional UK talent. It will be the best £7.99 you’ll spend this year.

[NEWS] Adele writes history in this weeks UK Chart by wearesme

This weeks UK chart has just been announced and it’s an incredible week for Adele and her label XL Recordings.

She has stormed to the top of the album charts with her second album 21 achieving record sales of over 208,000 in just one week; a figure that is only bettered by Take That’s ‘Patience’ last year. 21 is now the highest selling January album for five years.

Incredibly she her debut album 19 has made its way back into the chart securing a number 4 slot over 2 years after its release! Adele is the first artist for almost twelve years to score two Official Albums Chart Top 5 hits, including the number one, simultaneously.

And as if that wasn’t enough, Adele also has 3 singles in the Top 40 with Rolling In The Deep (3), Make You Feel My Love (15) and Someone Like You (36).

Incredible. And Deserved.

[NEW MUSIC] Travis Barker ft. Swizz Beatz, Game, Lil Wayne & Rick Ross – Can A Drummer Get Some? by wearesme

Travis Barker rose to stardom as the drummer for Blink 182 and he is now going it alone. ‘Can A Drummer Get Some?’ is the first single from his upcoming album ‘Can the Drummer Get Some?’ (spot the difference).

Travis invited some of hip-hop’s elite to trade bars over this rocky beat. Swizz Beatz, Game, Lil Wayne & Rick Ross all give their 2 cents.
