The past few months have been pretty crazy for the English pop/R&B band Rixton. After their video for their hit song "Me and My Broken Heart" got over 21 million views on YouTube, Rixton has been on the road nx. They just wrapped up their sold out US headlining tour so now it's time to give us something NEW!
The music video for "Wait On Me" is here and we are thrilled to be able to premiere it here first!!
Not only is the song awesome, but the video is amazing! It is set in the twenties and is also a "choose your fate" interactive video. Your decisions effect how it all turns out, which in our case led to Jake hiding in a wine cellar and getting in a lamp fight, but the outcome can be totally different for you depending on what you pick.
(If you're on mobile, download the free Interlude app on your phones to check out the full video!)
"Wait On Me" is the first single off their debut album coming out later in the year and we can barley wait to hear whats next!
What do you guys think of the video? What choices did you pick when you watched the video? Let us know what you think!
Brothers and bandmates AJR have been tearing it up with their hit song, "I'm Ready". After tweeting at singer-songwriter Sia, the trio was put in touch with Steve Greenberg of S-Curve Records and has not looked back. Combining elements of pop, doo-wop, and dubstep, the brothers have created a uniquee sound of DIY pop. Their EP, "I'm Ready!" was recorded in their parents living room in Chelsea, New York City.
The brothers full-length album is due out October 28th. Don't forget to check them out on tour!

You couldn't turn on a radio this summer without hearing "Am I Wrong", the smash hit by Afro-Norwegian duo Nico & Vinz. Since becoming friends in 2009, the pair have come a long way from working as substitute teachers in their hometown of Oslo, Norway.
Watch their inspiring story in the video below. These 2 are amazing, BUZZNET saw them perform last night and we were blown away.
Since "Am I Wrong" peaked at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, the duo has enjoyed mainstream success with the song being the most Shazammed song in the world, and gaining 50 million views on YouTube.
Nico & Vinz's upcoming album, "Black Star Elephant", is set to be released on October 14th.

We're excited to share this new track with you from New Found Glory called "Stubborn"! We are big fans of NFG here at Buzznet so of course we plan to have this song on repeat. Check it out and let us know what YOU think of the song!
In life, some of the hardest things to do are to admit when you are wrong, accept responsibility for your own actions, and to grow up and mature. This is what this song is about. It's my favorite song on the new album, and the one that means the most to me personally. -- Ian Grushka

Texas indie alternative group TEAM* has premiered the video for their single, "I Like It" exclusively on Buzznet!
"We want the videos to be the film makers baby, we give them total freedom to be inspired by the song and make something great that we think our fans will like and makes you think a little bit," the band said about the new video. "Evan (Kaufmann, who directed the video), was a friend of a friend and has made some brilliant short films we admired. It's his art piece, he cast and shot the whole thing in Hollywood, and he should get all the credit. We're stoked to be getting this song out there with a great video we believe in, and we're excited for fans to see it and share it everywhere!"

Guitar Center Singer-Songwriter is on the hunt for America’s next new talent! Aspiring, unsigned artists from around the country have the chance to enter to win recording an E.P with Grammy Award-winning producer Don Was, perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, take home new gear and $25,000 cash. Colbie Caillat, a new addition to the contest, will be mentoring the artists along the journey.
We caught up with Callait to get her thoughts on being involved in this project!
How did you get involved with the Guitar Center Singer-Songwriter program?
Not only have I worked with Guitar Center in the past - I appeared on Guitar Center Sessions and recently shot a commercial with them - but I've always admired their commitment to supporting musicians. Most of the employees at Guitar Center are musicians themselves, so it's a company that shares my belief that playing music is the greatest feeling on earth. I'm honored to be able to work with them to help share that joy with the world.
Why do you think it’s advantageous to have a nation-wide search for new talent?
You can find new talent everyday. People grow up and develop their talents, people also are constantly improving themselves by practicing and learning their crafts everyday.
What are some of your favorite aspects of the mentoring process?
I like to give advice to people that I wish was given to me when I was starting out as a young musician/business woman. Hopefully [this] help[s] their process & career flow as smooth as possible.
In your opinion, what makes a good song?
Honest, relatable lyrics. Memorable lyrics as well, catchy melodies. Either gorgeous or fun, genuine vocals, quality recordings and amazing musicians.
What are you most looking forward to about being a mentor?
Helping someone strengthen their talents and develop a career with longevity.
What are some of the challenges in transferring a song out of an artist’s head and into the studio? How do you overcome them?
The hardest part is finding the right production for the song. You also have to factor in if that style represents the artist appropriately and if the sound is current to where people will instantly wanna keep listening to it. Sometimes you have to record a song multiple times, with different producers and musicians, in different keys and tempos, possibly different genres, to find the perfect sound for that 1 song. It can take a lot of time and a lot of money.
What is your approach to addressing new artists?
Advice is always good; sometimes we can get complacent with our work and our ideas. It's good to get input from others because it will benefit the work. It's important to not let ego get in the way. It's also important to know what you want so you don't get strayed too far away from it by others. That can be the most difficult part.
What do you think the artists you mentor will learn from this experience? What will you learn from this experience?
They will learn teamwork, new techniques and work methods by working with others. They will be inspired.
I will learn to truly be a hands-on mentor, patience, and teaching skills. And I'll also be inspired.
Beginning on September 1st through November 2nd, artists will be able to enter the contest by submitting original music videos at www.guitarcenter.com/songwriter. All submissions will be ranked on their social media engagement and fan growth. The top artists will be reviewed by Don Was who will then handpick 5 finalists to perform live at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, where one winner will be named.
Good luck, everyone!
WE ARE SO EXCITED! After teaming up for this summer's sold-out rock arena show, Thirty Seconds to Mars and Linkin Park will be broadcasting their September 15th show at the Los Angeles Hollywood Bowl exclusively on VyRT. Vyrt is a live broadcast platform where artists can share events with fans around the world in real-time.
“This is the one and only broadcast of what could be some of the best shows we have ever played. Spending this summer with our friends in Linkin Park has been epic, amazing and insane," says Jared Leto. "For anyone around the world that wants to see Linkin Park and MARS share the stage, this isn’t just your chance, it’s your ONLY chance. We hope you come join the madness!”
BUZZNET will be thre tonight and we can't even control our excitment.
