EARL SWEATSHIRT: SOME RAP SONGS

There are four albums we've deemed noteworthy to the college entertainment community, starting with a new entry from Earl Sweatshirt. A CAA signee, Sweatshirt was born Thebe Neruda Kgositsile,  Cheryl Harris, a law professor, and Keorapetse Kgositsile, a South African poet. At 8, Keorapetse would return to South Africa, leaving Thebe and his mother in Los Angeles. This complicated relationship is cited by Sweatshirt as the inspiration by his newest album, Some Rap Songs. For booking info, contact your middle buyer, or your regional rep at CAA – Sabrina Butera for territories west of the Mississippi, Katie Germano for territories east of the Mississippi.

ALESSIA CARA: THE PAINS OF GROWING

Alessia Cara has long been a favorite in campus circles, although her availability for the college market has been near non-existent. Regardless, her popularity on college playlists is unquestioned. The 22-year old Canadian native is an incredibly talented vocalist, her single "Not Today" acted as a preview for her upcoming album, The Pains of Growing. Repped by Paradigm Talent Agency, Alessia Cara has undoubtedly been one of the most popular singer-songwriters of the past 2 years. For booking info, look for your middle buyer or regional rep at Paradigm - Rae Grabowski or Taylor Schultz.

MEEK MILL: CHAMPIONSHIPS

The former battle rapper's newest album, Championships, details his experiences with social justice following his release from incarceration. The two songs released from the album, "Oodles o' Noodles Babies" and "Uptown Vibes," have collectively garnered more than 5 million streams on Spotify since their release. A wildly popular talent, Meek Mill has long been unavailable to the college market, but may be available for the larger campus arenas capable of carrying out such a show.

THE 1975: AN INQUIRY INTO ONLINE DATING

A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships is the third studio album by English pop rock band The 1975. Described as, "Clever and profound, funny and light, serious and heartbreaking, painfully modern and classic-sounding all at the same time, 'A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships' is a game-changing album, one that challenges The 1975's peers – if, indeed, there are any – to raise their game." The 1975 are repped by Paradigm, check in with Rae Grabowski or Taylor Schultz or your middle for more booking information.
