In an interview with The FADER last year, Dublin rapper Rejjie Snow said that he wanted his debut album Dear Annie to feel “like a movie.” The first single, “Egyptian Luvr,” a wavy funk-leaning jam produced by Kaytranada, has the warm tones of an Super 8 gem ‘70s. As well as Rejjie’s melodic, easy-feeling flow and an agile verse from Portland’s Aminé, L.A. artist Dana Williams guests on the sweetly wistful hook — one that will be stuck in your head all week.
Last year, U.K. MCs were more prominent in British music than ever before. Stormzy and J Hus translated their immense promise into masterful bodies of work with Gang Signs & Prayer and Common Sense, grime godfather Wiley put out one of the best albums of his career, while scene young guns like Dave, AJ Tracey, Yxng Bane, and Not3s racked up millions of streams.
In the opening shot of her new video, ShitKid puts a true-to-life twist on a pop star trope. She gazes into a bright spotlight, and wind blows her hair as if she’s readying herself for a diva-ish performance. Then, she sniffs, looks to the side, and wipes her nose. The Malmö artist’s new song “Yooouuu” is as catchy as anything in your New Music Friday playlist, but feels intimately personal too, pairing a lo-fi bass groove with her deadpan, confident vocals.
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".
