Nov. 14, 2020
NEW ORLEANS, LA --- This year was a rolling coaster for both Virgin Records and the world in general. With COVID-19 shutting down the entire music industry early this fall, our offices had to shut the lights off completely, firing all staff and depleting any left income. Even more devastating news is when our top selling artist earlier this year, Hailee Steinfeld, pulled an Aaliyah and passed away in a accidental plane crash. Flying to the Bahamas after knowing of the music industry's sudden shut down, little did Steinfeld know that coming back would be her eventual downfall. Hailee's ashes will be stored in our "Virgin Records Hall of Fame" being constructed next year.
Now for the replacement aka the future? We just signed a massive ex-act in her own right. This woman has been staring in television shows and networks, such as Nick and Disney, and movies ever since the age of 9, and started recording music at the age of 12. Some of her most notable acting roles include the projects: Scream Queens, Akeelah and the Bee, Jump In!, Joyful Noise, Rags, True Jackson VP, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, and Hustlers. Yes that's right, the lovely Keke Palmer.
"Jonny called me and was like "I want you, I want to turn you into a massive R&B star., you just have that look and sound." I was just so excited to get the call, since the world has been on stop since COVID and I never really fully devoted myself to music before. The next morning I flew over into New Orleans, where Jonny's Virgin main office is and signed the contract. He had a new Tesla waiting for me as a signing bonus, it was so cool!"
Keke has done musical projects before such as movie soundtracks and independent stand-alones for herself, but Virgin will be releasing her official debut album sometime in 2021. "I'm so excited for the future, I'm already about to head to the studio tonight. You know, I've always been focused on my filmography, and I think I've made a name for myself in that market for sure. Now I feel its time to make that same impact in the music industry," said Palmer.
Follow Keke on any social media platform with the handle @KekePalmer for more future musical updates.
Keke Palmer (born Lauren Keyana Palmer on August 26, 1993) is a former American actress and current recording artist. She is perhaps best known for playing the title role in the 2006 film, Akeelah and the Bee. Palmer has signed a record deal with Virgin Records and her debut album is set to be released sometime in 2021 according to record executives.

Dear Readers, thank you for reading our first newsletter. Here at SX Entertainment, we strive to be 100% transparent with our supporters. I want to inform you all that we are on a great road to our first Girl Group, "STAYE". But first, we want to test your hype and excitement towards our trainees. Please know that the lineup that we announced will not change no matter what, this is for performance measures only! Of course us and our artist want to give you ultimate experience, and with your feedback we can successfully achieve that.
In another note, Eyedi and Jamie have been working hard to deliver you a excellent product! We have announced the current lineup for the subunit and we are more than excited for the full girl group debut in March, please hang on with us and support the Sub-unit. We have yet to name the sub-unit because we are giving the artists some creative input in this as well as it will be their combined project as a duo. However, the first single has already been picked and everyone is satisficed and excited. We are shooting the music video as soon as possible but due to safety protocols, we are waiting until we get all of our measures checked.
The final girl group will consist of 4 different individually unique girls including the two that are debuting with the sub-unit later on. There is no exact theme nor concept picked as well. As we stated before, we want to test the hype towards this new adventure. STAYE will compete against big names in the market, such as BLACKPINK and Red Velvet who are all pillars in the market. And we are proud of every inch of their success!

Keke Palmer meets lost BLACKPINK member (we think Roses?) at LAX airport
We spotted Jonny Braun's newly signed starlet Keke Palmer getting off her flight at the LAX airport in nothing but fashion from that fat and cashed Virgin Records check! We said hi to Palmer while she was talking to a Korean, so we just figured it was someone from BLACKPINK.
Adore the picture above readers! By the way, Keke's official launch into the industry is coming sooner than you expect (and we quote from Jonny himself!)

MO’NIQUE ANNOUNCES NEW RECORD LABEL “VROOM VROOM RECORDINGS”, RUN BY THE HELP OF TIFFANY “NEW YORK" POLLARD ; AIMING TO PLEASE MUSIC FANS OF ALL KINDS OF GENRES
In 2010, things goes heated up with Mo’Nique and filmmaker Lee Daniels + talk show personality Oprah Winfrey. She pulled off an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress win without campaigning or promoting the film “Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire” and as a result got her blackballed.
MO’NIQUE: Being blackballed in the film industry obviously took a toll on me. With almost nobody wanting to work with me anymore, I decided to look at other ventures. I really adore music, I have all my life. Since y’all know my fatass can’t sing, I knew it was better to run a label. *laughs*. My homegirl New York [Tiffany Pollard] helped me a lot in the process of building up this label, she was one of the only people to believe in me, I couldn’t 100% do this without her.
Mo’Nique stated that the artists that are part of the label will be managed by Tiffany “New York” Pollard. Not only did Mo’Nique announce the label at the conference, but she also revealed the first two signees of Vroom Vroom Recordings, pop artist Dua Lipa and rapper Doja Cat.
MO’NIQUE: I’m really happy with the two girls we’re starting with. I LOVE me some Duda Peep [Dua Lipa(?)], that song Big Rules? That was my shit! And don’t get me started on my baby Amala [Doja Cat], she only got like one song out before signing with us but she got a whole lotta potential. I’m excited!
Mo'Nique was also asked about the future of Vroom Vroom Recordings, where she stated that she hopes to sign artists of all kinds of genres in the future.
MO’NIQUE: My hopes is not only to show those who tried to get rid of me wrong, but I mainly hope my label has a piece for every music fan from a lot of genres. Like, I don’t look like it but I LOOOOVE me some country….. and that Sushi Pop shit? My sons always play them in the car. So who knows, maybe you’ll see artists like that in the future. *laughs*
Vroom Vroom Recordings’ signees are expected to release soon. Stay tuned for more info on this journey!

We are pleased that you have gotten our letters. Thank you for the endless support that we have gotten towards our new project, STAYE. We are working hard to bring you the best entertainment as possible! I am glad to announce the sub-unit will be called STAYEthere, stylized as STAYE(there). The name has been picked with a mutual decision. We wanted something close to STAYE and actually be apart of it, instead of it being a whole new complete group each time. We are still getting auditions from all around the world for future group members, and we are still looking for more!
Without further due, I got some pleasant news for everyone who have been anticipating the STAYEthere debut. STAYEthere have officially recorded the single bundle. That's right, they will release two songs. One will serve as a single and the other being a B-side. The ballad is something that hits hard to your emotions and feeling, it is something unique. And the single is something you can dance to, all the time! "Swan" will serve as the lead single of the mini-bundle, and the music video have already been shot. Since you are registered to our newsletter, we have a special surprise for you. You get to see the teaser pictures early!
Please do not share ~

Virgin Records Signs Dynamic Rap Duo 'City Girls'
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FRIDAY, Nov 27. 2020 ---- Jonny Braun has signed an exciting new female rap duo to his ever growing Virgin Records label.
Girl groups are special and rare. When things work out, it is beautiful. However, when things go wrong it can be all bad. The City Girls are a duo comprised of J.T. and Yung Miami, who met eight years ago in Miami, Florida. The ladies rise has been relatively quick, but when it is hot it is undeniable. J.T. says.
The rap duo has gone viral numerous of times over the past Quarantine summer with the "Period" phrase, essentially saying it after every sentence for emphasis. It has amassed so huge to become a brand.
"I just had to sign these superstars, the way the already know how to brand themselves and have their own sound and look.", Braun says.
Jonny now recently signed two African-American acts, with R&B songbird Keke Palmer joining the Virgin imprint previously.
After signing the girls to contracts, Braun announced at the contract signing that the City Girls will be releasing a Flux promotional song, "Where The Bag At" on December 4. "I want to see how their sound responds on playlists only, so basically they'll be a budget project for a while until I'm ready to launch them fully with physical appearances."
City Girls aren't the only acts releasing on December 4, as their labelmate Keke Palmer (who is reported to have the label's first actual push) is also releasing music December 4, but with multiple projects.
"I might as well call December 4 #VirginDay with how busy it'll be in the office!" Braun exclaimed.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SUNDAY, Nov 29. 2020 ---- Little Mix announces their upcoming single release for December 4th!
The British pop girl group has made waves around the globe 9 years into their career thanks to their remarkable discography with 5 studio albums which include their biggest hits to date "Shout Out To My Ex", "Wings", "Salute", "Black Magic", "Touch" & "Woman Like Me" featuring Nicki Minaj.
After dropping their previous record titled "LM5", the group parted ways during their album release week with their former record label, Syco which was founded by The X Factor franchise' very own, Simon Cowell. Even though the girls claimed that they were "still pals" at last years BRITs, they were quick to start searching for a new home.
Two weeks ago, Desperado Records announced that the girls were signed with the group as one of their first artists in the label. They were signed along with another UK's very own, Yungblud. The record company seems to be making it clear to their audience that Little Mix is going to be their first official push after they released an official teaser video for their upcoming single -to be released on Friday, December 4th- earlier today.
The girls are apparently getting close to finish their upcoming sixth studio record and the reports are saying that they're feeling ready to unleash the new era with a "retro-sounding bop". The lead single off their sixth album "titled BUS, full title will be announced soon" is out in 5 days! You can pre-save the track through the link under the teaser video.

Talks her new venture, artist management!
- They say the devil works hard, but we all know Kris Jenner works harder. For nearly two decades now, she has been working as a manager to her children, cultivating them to be pop culture behemoths, and defining the word “momager”. She has built an empire. Kim, Kylie, Khloé, Kourtney, and Kendall. The Kardashian-Jenner sisters. On the surface, they may seem like your standard media personalities, but these ladies have amassed more than they could have ever dreamed about, including two of them being billionaires, and it’s all thanks to Kris Jenner.
However, Jenner is not one to be still in her satisfaction. She is constantly pushing herself, and her daughters, to aim for more. That is why Kris Jenner is taking her management skills to the next step: artist management.
In early November, it was announced that Kris Jenner would be joining forces with Columbia Records CEO, Sylvia Rhone, to work as an artist manager under the label. Her first client? It may come as a surprise. None other than 5x Grammy Award-winning Billie Eilish.
Jenner sat down with Variety as part of this month’s magazine issue, and offered a guide into her reasoning and ambitions behind her new venture…
Before ever managing your famous daughters, you were a manager to your ex-husband Bruce Jenner, now Caitlyn. What is it about talent managing that intrigues you so much?
I’ve always been a very organized person in my personal life. Growing up, I would never have to be reminded to complete chores around the house, I would always be ahead in doing them. I guess, my first management job was being a house manager to my own family as a pre-teen. I remember, making my mother buy me a big family calendar from the store. I would plan my family’s week, or even month, all out. Everything from what dinner we will be eating on Wednesday, to when my little sister had a doctor’s appointment. However, I never pursued it until I met Bruce. I immediately loved it. I was booking Bruce speeches, sponsorships, advertisements, etc. It was challenging, yet fulfilling. So when Kimberley told me she wanted to become famous one way or another, I knew only I could be her manager… and the rest is history!
Why venture into the music business?
I know it may seem shocking to many, but this won’t be my first time stepping into the world of music. My late ex-husband Robert was a music lawyer. While we were married, I aided him with a lot. Through that, I learned a lot about the music business. It had always been in the back of my mind as something I would love to delve into. But once my daughters rose to stardom, I simply didn’t have the time. I was too busy handling and making sure I put real effort into each of their careers. Now that they’re older, while I still am their manager, they rely on me less and less, so now is the perfect time for me to progress in my career and the music business is where I want to advance to.
Sylvia Rhone has been a force in the music industry for decades. Under her tenure at Epic Records, she single-handedly led the rise of superstars like Travis Scott, Future, and Camila Cabello. Now being recently appointed CEO of Columbia Records, she will surely work her magic in that label as well. How did you and Mrs. Rhone come into contact and you agree to partner together with her under Columbia Records?
Sylvia is a phenomenal woman. She defines what it means to be a boss. I’ve known her for about a decade now. I’ve watched her grow into the Midas touch force she is now. When I found out about her new role at Columbia Records, I knew that was the place for me to take my skills and talent to. When I told Sylvia about my ambition to work in artist management, she was as welcoming as she could be. She quickly invited me to join the team over at Columbia Records. We’re like family now. If I had it my way, the label would be renamed Kolumbia!
The first artist who you have signed on to manage is none other than Billie Eilish. Why her?
I am a massive fan of Billie’s music. I’m a real music snob. I rarely find modern music that I truly enjoy. So when I found myself in awe of Billie’s debut album, I knew that this girl had true talent. My daughter, Kylie, had been friends with Billie for nearly 2 years now. When I heard that Billie was looking for a new manager, I had to waste no time and jump at the opportunity. I am so thankful that Billie decided to trust me, and I will surely not let her down!
What are your top ambitions as an artist manager?
I want my artists to succeed. In all aspects. Succeed in musical creativity. Succeed in commercial success. I want my artists to be the biggest in the world. No doubt about it. I want to build the 1995 Chicago Bulls starting lineup of the music industry. I have my eyes set on my artists’ world domination, and I will achieve that!

CONFESSIONAL: THE TRUTH
Good Evening Peeps,
My Palmettes was probably expecting a regular announcement regarding potential new music. Jonny was expecting the same announcement you were too, but I'm deciding to do things a bit different while I do announce. I have things to get off my chest.
I consider myself a straight-shooter so here it is: for 4 years prior to 2020 I've been in an abusive relationship with NBA star LeBron James. Why am I saying this now when I just signed a massive music recording contract knowing everything can be altered or taken away from me? Well, it's a simple thing that's called taking my power back.
For 4 long years I've been slapped, punched, and told what to do by LeBron. For 4 long years I've been silenced by him as well, when I would threaten that I would run to the press, he would just say no one would believe you. You're a "black girl". Well, Mr. James, fuck you and your reckless narrative. I'm truly telling you, in words, that I Don't Belong To You anymore.
With that being said, my debut single titled "I Don't Belong To You", written completely by myself while in total distress, derives from that story. Me putting my foot down, me saying no finally, and me accepting the mental and physical abuser that was right under my sheets.
I Don't Belong To You, out on Friday (12/4).
(P.S.: I'm also releasing a festive cover of "Santa Baby" on the same day, thank you guys for supporting me all the way to this very moment.)

Billboard wrote:Billie Eilish Is Dropping a New Single in Just Hours
Billie Eilish surprised fans on Thursday morning (Dec. 3), when she announced that she'll be dropping a brand new single tonight.
"heather" will be arriving on Thursday (Dec. 3) at 9 p.m. PT (Midnight Friday ET). The Grammy winner shared the news alongside cover art that appears to be an abstract painting of a winter forest.
"I CAN’T WAIT FOR YOU GUYS TO HEAR THIS ONE," she added on Instagram. The star's brother and producer Finneas also uploaded the news to his Instagram Story, writing, "I’m so f---ing proud of Billie and myself for this song."
“heather” will be Eilish’s first single since “everything i wanted” which dropped late last year, reaching top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, and her first musical output since her historic Grammy sweep this past February.
