Last week, a young R&B singer named Daniel Caesar received his first gold plaque. “Get You,” a smooth piece of classicism featuring Kali Uchis, got what it deserved. It’s a song that feels on first listen like you’ve heard it before, a four-and-a-half minute swooning session dependent only on languid guitars and, more importantly Caesar’s star turn of a vocal performance.
This morning, a new Black Panther trailer dropped, lighting up Twitter immediately. The star of the trailer—setting aside Michael B. Jordan for just a second—was its musical choice. Vince Staples’ “BagBak,” the driving piece of snarling dance music from the young California rapper’s Big Fish Theory is an unlikely fit for selling a blockbuster made and distributed by The Walt Disney Company.
Justin Bieber released a new song recently. “Friends” is typical post-maturation Bieber: charming, catchy, more sophisticated than the pop star is generally credit for, but still reliably to-the-point. It’s also successful, hitting #20 on the Billboard Hot 100—low on Bieber’s long list of hits, but an undeniable achievement for a driving, Robyn-esque loosie—and currently sitting on upwards of 136 million streams on Spotify to date.
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".
