About Swae Lee —
As the younger and melodic half of southern hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd, Swae Lee has established his own versatile discography with a sound that is undeniably and utterly his. Tracks such as French Montana’s “Unforgettable” (which peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100), the Grammy-nominated “Sicko Mode” with Travis Scott and Drake (which also landed at #1 on the Billboard charts) and his impressive list of writing credits (including the hook to Beyoncé’s “Formation” which peaked at #10 on Billboard Hot 100) are all a testament to that versatility. His song “Sunflower” with Post Malone (off the Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse soundtrack) topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart and remained in the Top 5 for four months, with over one billion cumulative streams. It also is the highest charting song to ever land on a Spider-Man franchise soundtrack. He recently won a 2020 Billboard Music Award for Top Dance/Electronic Song for the hit record “Close To Me” with Ellie Golding & Diplo.
About Jhené Aiko —

Jhene’s 2020 album Chilombo – now certified Platinum with seven gold and platinum singles – topped the Billboard R&B Chart at #1 not once but twice this year, and has garnered over 2 Billion streams worldwide. Chilombo made chart history as the biggest Billboard R&B debut from a female artist since Beyonce’s Lemonade.
