Hop into the weekend with brand new releases distributed by The Orchard, featuring Kelsea Ballerini, NMIXX, and Silvana Estrada.
Kelsea Ballerini – SUBJECT TO CHANGE (Black River Entertainment)
Two-time GRAMMY nominee, Kelsea Ballerini, debuts her 4th album, SUBJECT TO CHANGE. Notably, the first single off the album, “HEARTFIRST,” was the “most added song at country radio” the week of its release. The artist has said that the intentions of this project are to create something that’s “breezy, happy, and feels good.” Inspired by ’90s country and ’90s pop, Ballerini continues to make her mark with tracks like “IF YOU GO DOWN (I’M GOIN’ DOWN TOO)” and “YOU’RE DRUNK, GO HOME” featuring Kelly Clarkson and Carly Pearce. With her debut album, The First Time, she became the only female country artist to hit #1 with her first three consecutive singles. This latest endeavor will continue to showcase Ballerini’s talent and success in the country scene and beyond.
NMIXX – ENTWURF (JYP Entertainment)
K-pop girl group, NMIXX, consisting of LILY, HAEWON, SULLYOON, JINNI, BAE, JIWOO and KYUJIN, debuts their new EP, ENTWURF. This new project is all about facing fears, taking charge, and developing life’s meaning. In their new song “DICE,” the group fights their enemies through a game and the song sends a message to persevere no matter what one’s going through. It’s a track that’s defined as ‘MIXX POP,’ a crossover between hip-hop, jazz, pop, and trap. Back in February, NMIXX recorded the highest debut album sales by a girl group ever in K-pop history with their EP AD MARE. With over 2M monthly listeners on Spotify, this EP is sure to keep raising the bar.
Silvana Estrada – Abrazo (Glassnote Entertainment Group LLC)
The new EP, Abrazo, by Singer-Songwriter and Latin GRAMMY® nominated Silvana Estrada, is out now. The title, Abrazo, which translates to ‘hug,’ was inspired by longing for closeness during the pandemic. The intention of this EP is “to not forget how much we missed each other when we couldn’t be in the same room and to not forget all that we learned, everything that saved us in recent years,” says Estrada. Filled with ideas of hope, light, and human and universal love, the artist introduces the track “Aquí.” Estrada wants listeners to feel closer to ‘everyday miracles’ and to remember to practice gratitude even in hard times.
