The Complete Roundup Of The Billboard Music Awards 2021




The 2021 Billboard Music Awards were presented this Sunday, 23rd of May. Held at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, the event returned seven months after its pandemic-delayed preceding edition. Hosted by Nick Jonas, it was aired live on NBC, at 8 p.m ET. 


The Weeknd, who was a finalist in 16 categories, dominated the awards show, taking home ten trophies, including the night’s biggest win, Top Artist. For his explosive smash “Blinding Lights,” he also won Top 100 Artist and Top Hot 100 Song. BTS also swept awards, winning every category in which they were nominated for their hit “Dynamite,” including Top Duo/Group, Top Song Sales Artist, Top Social Artist, and Top Selling Song. During the ceremony, the band gave the first live performance of  “Butter,” their most recent single, which was released on Friday.


Bad Bunny won four awards — Top Latin Artist, Top Latin Male Artist, Top Latin Album, and Top Latin Song — and the late rapper Pop Smoke won five, including Top Billboard 200 Album for “Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon,” which earned record-breaking posthumous recognition as a finalist in ten categories. “Thank you for respecting my young warrior,” Audrey Jackson, his mother, said to the crowd as she accepted the award on his behalf.


Best Rock Artist winner, Machine Gun Kelly, showed up on the red carpet with a rather unusual fashion statement: a jet-black tongue. His social media reveals that he had his tongue painted black with a cotton bud. He made sure his tongue was noticed, sticking it out to the cameras, and touching tongues with his girlfriend, Megan Fox on the red carpet. 


Pink accepted the Icon Award from rockstar, Bon Jovi and admitted to being obsessed with him since she was eight years old, locking herself in her room for a week after his wedding. “I’m very glad you found lasting love, Jon, but you broke my heart. I take this as an apology,” she joked on receiving the trophy. She also performed a medley of her best hits from her career, but her aerial performance with her nine-year-old, Willow Sage, to their duet, “Cover Me In Sunshine,” stole the show. 


Drake bagged the Artist of the Decade award, which he accepted along with his three-year-old son, Adonis, on stage. “I’m really self-conscious about my music,” he spoke as a part of his acceptance speech, “I’ve spent an incalculable amount of hours trying to analyze all the things I did wrong, but tonight for once I’m sure as hell we did something right.”

“Stay The Night” By Don Mai Will Make You Catch Feelings



Don Mai, a singer/songwriter, shares the journey behind the creation of his new single “Stay The Night”.


Don Mai is a singer-songwriter from Melbourne, Australia. His soothing voice with zesty lyrics leaves a long-lasting impression on the minds of the audience. His songs bring a refreshing wave of sound into our lives. His new single “Stay The Night ” will be released on all streaming platforms soon. His work is featured on many music blogs like AAAbackstage, Buzzmusic LA, Music Crowns, Xs Noize, Moggblog, etc. 


It all started as a hobby. Don learned to play the piano from a very young age which then developed into a flair for learning guitar, singing/rapping, and eventually writing songs to express his feelings. He is a jack of all trades and a skilled one at that! His perked-up interest in all aspects of music has led him to become a full-fledged singer, writer, and producer for 90% of his songs. Growing up, he had a fickle mind and tried switching to new things out of curiosity which ultimately led him to the conclusion of becoming a singer and entertaining people with thoughtful songs.



Being an independent artist is not easy. You wear multiple hats at the same time. You act as your marketer, producer, writer, singer, and manager. Juggling many roles can be overwhelming at times and take a toll on the health of the artist. This is the biggest struggle in the journey of Don.


Nonetheless, he never loses his spirit and keeps adding new skills to his portfolio. Aside from writing, he also creates and edits videos for marketing, does social media management, and focuses on the aim of delivering a top-notch musical experience to the audience at the same time.


Inspiration For Many

Don believes in following the passion and doing whatever the heart desires. If you follow your dreams, there will be no remorse for not trying. Opinion of others should merely serve as a factor in your success as nothing good ever comes from losing confidence on the whim of others.


He tells people to give everything their 100% before surrendering. The best-case scenario is that you will walk away with lessons for life. When you love the work that you do, it becomes more indulgent and pushes you to do better in life and business.


The Mission

Don’s mission is to create songs that bring relatability and catchiness to the audience and make them groove. His songs are derived from real-life scenarios that often occur in the life of every human being. He wants to bring out the emotions and create tunes that people will remember for a lifetime. To achieve that mission, Don brainstorms around different things like feeling, memories, love, happiness, and other emotions and creates songs befitting the appeal. Be on the lookout for Don Mai’s new single, “Stay The Night” which will be released on 22nd October at 12 a.m. Listen to his previous releases here.

Creation Of A Personal Brand

The mammoth hit of ‘Jalebi Baby’ with Derulo was overseen by Capitol Records in a unique partnership with Universal Music Group and Namah Music Group. Currently, Tesher has 626K subscribers on YouTube and 108K followers. 


About The Sizzling Journey Of Jalebi Baby 

It’s most important to enjoy your work and Hitesh Sharma aka Tesher’s “Jalebi Baby” is the perfect example for this. ‘Jalebi Baby’ is a song based on a salsa melody with reggaeton elements. It traces its inspiration back to Bollywood’s “Jalebi bai” but has Arabic drums in it. It’s also in English with a bit of Hindi and some Punjabi. These characteristics of being a blend of several cultures and music forms set it apart and don’t let it fit into any specific bucket! It was a creation Tesher created for simply having some fun and it was that uniqueness people responded to. 


While talking about the creativity poured in the song Tesher said, “As for advice, I’d say be authentic and don’t try being like anyone else. Be as weird and wild as you can be. It’s the most stereotypical thing that I could say but it’s true”. 


Story Of The Biggest Collaboration In Tesher’s Music Career

The original version had gained massive traction all over the world. The song was scaling up to number one in markets like Turkey, UAE, Algeria, and Egypt, and was finding its way up in the Middle East to North Africa and into Europe. But, it was being played a lot on platforms like TikTok and that’s the main reason why people were ‘Shazaming’ it! 


Meanwhile, even Jason was looking for something sizzling hot internationally and wanted to collaborate. He loved ‘Jalebi Baby’ when he heard it. He not only wanted to bring the record to the USA but also had plans to expose it to the mainstream in a big way.


This collaboration gained him international fame and provided Hitesh with several opportunities to learn and evolve. While talking about this, he said, “There have been a lot of learnings from Jason. Just watching him in front of the camera is an amazing experience, for one. He gives an incredible take every single time. He is such a professional dancer, and as soon as the take is over, he calms down and watches the shot to see what he can do better. He is a fun guy for sure, but when he is working, he is just working and is tuned in. He gave me a lot of pointers on how to move my body and how to work with the camera in front of me. It was my first big music video, and for me, I had to learn a lot of things which he helped with”.

With massive pad chords, shimmering arpeggiators, and a deep Moog bass, the track truly stands out as a bewitching experience.

John says, “With tears in my eyes, I remorsefully stepped down from being the frontman of that band, but remained on the tour bus for the next two weeks. I desperately wanted to go home, but didn’t have the finances…it was hell…and I was at my absolute breaking point. In my darkest loneliest moment, I felt a vibration in my pocket. It was Simon calling from Australia.” 


This phone call was the beginning of it all. After healing from the tragic incident, John and Simon have tapped into something very powerful that allowed them to make deep connections with audiences all around the world and create the magic they create through their music.

The speeding caravan of The Safety Word felt a sudden jolt in 2020.During this time, they ended up constructing 4 remix EPs of their material with diverse collaborators from all corners of the world and started streaming online from their house.

CARRÉ: Enlivening The World Through Electrifying New Single – Turn Down The Choir



This band is creating music that makes people tap their feet with supreme energy. 

Double drum trio CARRÉ is setting new milestones by experimenting with music. This double-drum trio-led band was born out of the need and will for creating a dancy electronic and rock n’ roll band. They have recently released a new single “Turn down the choir” on August 20th that perfectly describes the battle between the subconscious and the conscious.


Beginning Of Musical Journey 

CARRÉ started as a concept band in 2019. It was brought to life in Los Angeles, CA, by two former French artists/musicians/producers Keveen Baudouin & Jules de Gasperis, and a drummer based out of Paris, France. The double drum trio released a couple of singles/videos and their first EP in the Spring of Summer 2020. This trio wanted to create a band that blended their electronic influences from French Touch and psychedelic rock’n roll. To make the music electrifying that could make people dance to their feet, CARRÉ came to life with the two drummers’ idea to produce the tight groove dance feeling to the music.

Their strength lies in the unique talents they have. Each of them came to the table with different influences ranging from electronic and modern rock by Jules De Gasperis to a more psychedelic-industrial and noise experimental vibe by Keveen Baudouin to hints of pop, world music, and percussion was brought to the table by Julien Boyé. 



Every beautiful creation we see today is inspired by something, and the same is the case with this band. Experimentation – the greatest inspiration, pushed them to blend the French and Anglo-Saxon influences by mixing up electronic music with rock n’ roll. The Los Angeles music scene doesn’t have that. This scarcity and the want to fulfill it through their creation were the two greatest motivating factors that inspired them to create the music that fulfills the craving.


Global Pandemic, CARRÉ & Its Future Plans

The band says, “Covid 19 impacted us as we were supposed to play our EP release show in Los Angeles, CA, during the Spring of 2020 with a series of European shows right after that. We ended up sticking to our release calendar and put out the two first singles and video clips in April and May 2020 followed by our self-titled EP in late July 2020”. Anything but time can wait for us, but time is the thing that flies by. Utilizing it with utmost care is what one can do, if Pandemic doesn’t stop. If it carries on its work, how could we rest? That is the ideology behind the band’s unceasing work.   

They plan to keep producing and creating music and keep releasing new tracks. They don’t wait for the opportunities to come, they believe in creating them. They believe that “The shows will come when they’re supposed to. Forcing destiny never helped anyone so we are patient and meanwhile, we’re building a following and an interest in our music.” 

As their music is not formatted to some kind of song shape, they are expecting the cinematic and trance aspect of it to hopefully help bring CARRÉ some love in the movie soundtrack world. It will help them keep everything and everyone together to create more, bring that project on stage in front of a crowd than on tour. Because at the end of the day, live music is the answer.
