97.1 AMP Radio’s Edgar Sotelo and Chelsea Briggs Interview Director Chis Robinson On Drake and Chris Brown’s “No Guidance” Music Video!

Legendary music video director, Chris Robinson has done it again, and in a BIG way. Chris Brown and Drakes new song “No Guidance” couldn’t be fully complete without a BOMB music video to follow. Who to create this epic 9-minute music video masterpiece? Of course the one and only Chris Robinson – the man also behind other iconic videos like Tyga’s “Rack City”, Nicki Minaj and Drakes “Moment in Time”, T.I. and Keri Hilson’s “Got Your Back” and so many more. Chris Robinson did an exclusive interview on the AMP Morning Show with hosts Edgar Sotelo and our very own Chelsea Briggs to give you the inside scoop on the vision and creation for this experience with Drake and Chris Brown.

This project started with a just phone call from Chris Brown for Robinson to listen to “No Guidance”. Obviously, Robinson loved the song and immediately wanted to work a music video into play. Robinson speaks highly of the two mega rap stars, Chris Brown and Drake in general, but especially when it comes to their dance moves. When is comes to Chris Brown, Robinson tells Edgar and Chelsea, “there’s nobody who does what he does, like him”. In case you didn’t already know, these two can absolutely bust a move. In the video for “No Guidance”, IT SHOWS.

When Edgar and Chelsea asked about Robinson’s favorite part of the entire experience, aside from simultaneously working with Chris Brown and Drake of course, Robinson says working with his son. Yup, Robinson co-directed this insane music video alongside his talented son, listed under the credits as “creative director”, LCR$.

Robinson’s next piece of work stays within the rap world. He directed an episode of Hulu’s new series that is just now in production called “Wu-Tang: An American Saga”. Will Robinson direct a new film that stars both Chris Brown and Drake? The answer to that question left open… but Robinson is definitely NOT shutting it down. In terms of his next visions and dreams, Robinson would love to direct a new “Bad Boys” film. Whatever he does, the man behind all of this musical art is a talent like no other.

MUSIC VIDEO PREMIERE: Nick Hagelin and PXTN Release New Collab Music Video for ‘Good Time’

Nick Hagelin and Paxton Ingram (PXTN) may have battled it out on The Voice. However they are now are releasing a music video together! Their new music video for ‘Good Time’ dropped today.

The song is Cuban-inspired and is the perfect feel-good summer dance record. The song uses a sample from legendary Cuban singer, Celia Cruz. PXTN sings in both English and Spanish throughout the song. Hagelin and PXTN did the music video shoot in Miami’s Little Havana. This payed homage to the music that influenced the record.

The two met on The Voice in 2016 and collaborated in songwriting during their time on the show. Nick’s cover of Rihanna’s ‘Stay‘ landed in the top ten on iTunes. PXTN’s version of ‘Break Every Chain‘ got to #1 on the Billboard Christian chart. The two stayed close after the show and continued to write music together.

In addition to their singing and songwriting, the two have something else in common: DANCE. PXTN and Nick Hagelin are both extremely good dancers. PXTN taught at Showstopper Dance Studio and choreographed the televised performances for the 2019 Univision Award show “Premios Juventud” for Latin superstars Anuel A, Natti Natasha, Farruko, and more. Nick Hagelin was born in NYC and trained at the School of American Ballet at Lincoln Center. He went on to dance internationally with the American Ballet Theatre, The Kirov, and the Carolina Ballet. He competed on season 10 of The Voice but got edged out by Ingram before semifinals.

“When we first got on The Voice the producers told us that the greatest thing that would come of being on the show was the friendships we would make, and while I was skeptical at the time, nothing could be more true of my experience,” said Hagelin. “The music I get to make with Paxton and other friends I made during that time is one of the greatest lasting impacts of my journey on The Voice.”

KROQ’s 27th Annual Weenie Roast was the Concert of the SUMMER!

Food trucks, the beach, and an awesome lineup of performers… This past weekend KROQ proved why Weenie Roast is consistently one of the best concerts of the year. The festival took place for the first time at the beautiful Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, California. The concert was the ultimate beach party as concert-goers sat on blankets under the shade of palm trees and enjoyed music from their favorite artists.

Excited fans rode shuttles to the venue, and the weather was beautiful for an outdoor concert. Food trucks lined the entrance as attendees were able to enjoy food from a wide array of vendors as they looked out on the water. Throughout the concert, artists such as X Ambassadors, DJ Snoopadelic, and The Lumineers brought the heat.

The X Ambassadors are Weenie Roast regulars, and during their performance of their hit song “Unsteady,” the crowd leapt to their feet to sing along in unison. They additionally performed “Boom,” their latest single, and fans danced along to the upbeat song. Later in the day, Snoop Dogg a.k.a. DJ Snoopadelic was fashionably late, but stole the show as he DJ’ed a wide variety of classics from all different genres. It was his first time performing at Weenie Roast, and his debut did not disappoint. Younger and older concert-goers got to enjoy a Snoop Dogg twist on all of their favorite songs. From “Get Low” by Lil’ John to “We Will Rock You” by Queen, Snoop Dogg knew exactly what the audience wanted to hear. His exciting transitions and smooth dance moves kept the crowd cheering the entire time.

The Lumineers headlined the show and showed everyone why they are consistently at the top of alternative charts. They went on the main stage after the sun went down and gave a beautiful performance of some of their songs from the Cleopatra album in addition to their new single “Gloria.”

The event was an awesome mixture of old and new sounds, and the scenic new venue was a hit amongst the audience. We can’t wait to see what next year’s lineup will be, and until then we will probably be reliving our incredible memories from the concert!

“Cobra Kai’s” Cutest Stars We Are Obsessed With!!

Here at Hollywire, we stan the Youtube series Cobra Kai so hard. We’ve had the cast in a bunch and honestly, we can’t get enough of this show! Cobra Kai is about the thirty-four-year-old rivalry from when Daniel LaRusso defeated Johnny Lawerence in the last few minutes of the classic movie Karate Kid. Fast forward to 2018, Cobra Kai drops and millions of fans are tuning in to see where Ralph Macchio and William Zabka are up to today. Macchio and Zabka were the main focus of the show, but are now joined by four new characters — or shall we say, heartthrobs. Here are the four heartthrobs of Cobra Kai.

BLACKPINK

BLACKPINK is not only colors that look great together, but also the name of the biggest modern girl group. This group is proving BTS isn’t the only K-pop group that can find success in America. This K Pop sensation made up singer/rapper/dancers Jennie, Rosé, Lisa, and Jisoo is taking the world by storm, and we can see why.
We were actually talking about Joe Jonas last week, as we were going over Taylor Swifts Ex-Lovers and where are they now, but something happened in post and that never made the cut. Don’t worry we know Joe and Taylor dated!
Pete Davidson and Kate Beckinsale are officially over after only four months of dating, which is the same length as the SNL star’s engagement to Ariana Grande. Apparently, the split was amicable and came after it was reported they decided to take things more slowly.
Kim Kardashian is going to be featured in Paris Hilton’s music video about butts. The duo was spotted on set outside Hollywood’s Nightingale Plaza club shooting this music video.

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift’s new music video Me! Featuring Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie hit 65.2 million views in just 24 hours. You’re welcome Tay Tay, that was mostly me, and yes everything is fine! Which got us thinking about TSwift’s “long list of ex-lovers” and where are they now?!
We obviously ship Justin and Hailey Bieber so hard. It feels like every day this cutest couple does something to make us swoon and go “aww I want that.” Here are the five times the Biebs times two gave us serious #RelationshipGoals.
Beyonce, who very selectively uses Instragam, dropped three photos last week of her and a whole bunch of sneakers. Which got us thinking, could Bey have any more sneakers? Of course, she could, she’s Beyonce. This image has already been meme-ed a bunch, as all the single ladies are wondering, what is going on here?
You guys remember when wedgies were not something you ever wanted, right? Well times have changed, the latest Instagram trend is the “Wedgie Rise.” Emily Ratajowski, Demi Rose and Chloe Ferry are all about this look, that is also called “fanny flossing” or “v-kinis.”

Zac Efron Dyed His Hair Blonde And Has a 10 Pack!

This week’s heartthrob is like a fine wine: He just keeps getting better with age. Actually, I’ve never had a fine wine, but that’s what I hear. That’s right we’re talking about Zac Efron, who’s so hot he just spells his name simply “Z-a-c” no “h” or “k” needed, and we’re okay with that. Have you seen his 10 pack lately? You could grate cheese off that. If you happen to be on pizzaslime.com and noticed that for a reasonable 12K you could purchase a bottle of Noah Cyrus’ tears, Noah’s team has confirmed that you actually will not get tears from the singer actress. Martha Stewart and CBD? As her brand recently made a deal to sell CBD infused products, AKA weed that will never and can never get you high. Which to quote Martha might be “a good thing.” What were you guys doing at 16? I was begging my mom to let me get my drivers license and still learning how to cook scrambled eggs. But if you’re Johnny Orlando, 16 years old means winning Junos breakthrough artist of the year, 5.8 million Instagram followers, and a world tour. NBD.
