Rejjie Snow has been something of a sleeping giant in hip-hop for years now. Armed with a nimble flow, an ear for lush, atmospheric beats, and strong projects like 2017's The Moon & You, it was only a matter of time until the Dublin MC became too big to ignore. Snow is certainly making a case for 2018 being his year with the first single off his debut LP, Dear Annie, a shimmering bop produced by Kaytranada and featuring Aminé titled "Egyptian Luvr."
Late last year, New York-based artist Cautious Clay made an impressive debut with his single “Cold War”—an addictive track featuring lyrics that detailed the difficulties every 20-something goes through in the dating realm. Today he returns to kick off the new year with his latest single, "Juliet + Caesar." "Juliet + Caesar" offers a preview of what we can expect to hear on his forthcoming Blood Type EP, which is due out next month.
The way the internet is set up these days, going viral has arguably become much easier now than it ever was before. However, because of this, it takes unique creativity to put out something with viral potential that will really stand out among the rest of the things getting shared around the internet on a daily basis. Toronto comedian @iamTresor has already figured out how to separate himself from the rest.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
