During the harvest celebration weekend, A1 Bentley broke the internet by releasing his new single, 2 At A Time. The Love & Hip Hop star is infamous for his style, creativity, and for being a musical genius. In A1 fashion, he released a 30 second clip on Instagram of him and his adorable toddler vibing to 2 At A Time, which is also a digital challenge ( #2AtATimeChallenge ) that encourages his fans to upload a video of them vibing out for a chance to win round trip tickets to his video shoot with RIV Entertainment.
Whether good or bad, Ray J’s name, finances and family have been topic of discussion for news outlets and after last week’s report from the Source Magazine of the 38-year-old Love and Hip Hop star’s projected $200M annual earnings, two days ago, DailyMail stated they had sources tell them he has been lobbying for Trump to pardon rapper and friend Marion ‘Suge’ Knight, who was convicted of manslaughter in 2018.
Hip Hop mastermind Tyga is bringing new vibes to the Fall with his latest international single, Mamacita. The song features the legendary Carlos Santana and YG.
Tyga collaborated with longtime content partner, Andrew Listermann of RIVETING ENTERTAINMENT to produce a cinematic visual that captures the true essence of the song, and illustrates Tyga pursuing a love interest that ultimately becomes his Mamacita. The visual is co-directed by Arrad of RIVETING ENTERTAINMENT. “From the very beginning, we took a narrative approach for this project and treated it like a film instead of a conventional video. Tyga and YG alone are already an iconic duo, but adding the Hispanic icons Carlos Santana and Danny Trejo into the mix made this the most gratifying experience for me as a director,” said Arrad.
CEO and Founder of RIVETING Entertainment, Andrew Listermann serves as the executive producer of the Mamacita video. Listermann and Tyga have worked together for over 10 years to create visuals that bring Tyga’s singles to life. “I’m excited for the world to see what we created for the video as we did something different than in the past, we made a real short film music video with just as much acting as performance,” said Founder and CEO of RIVETING Entertainment Andrew Listermann.
