3OH!3 (pronounced "three oh three") is an American electronic music duo from Boulder, Colorado, made up of Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte. They are best known for their single "DONTTRUSTME" from their album Want, which reached number seven on the Billboard Hot 100. Their second single, a remix of "Starstrukk" featuring Katy Perry from Want, was a top ten hit in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Finland, Poland, and Australia. They gained further recognition by featuring Ke$ha on the song "My First Kiss", which was made the lead single from their album Streets of Gold. Check out one of their music videos below. **Warning, may contain explicit lyrics.
Sick Puppies is an Australian rock band formed in Sydney in 1997. After releasing their debut album, Welcome to the Real World in 2001, the band rose to prominence in 2006 when their song "All the Same" was uploaded to YouTube. The video supported the Free Hugs Campaign, which was launched in Sydney. This success was followed up with their second studio album, Dressed Up as Life in 2007. Their third studio album, Tri-Polar, came out on 14 July 2009. The band's fourth studio album, Connect was released on 16 July 2013. Check out one of their music videos over on YouTube. **Warning, may contain explicit lyrics.
Lecrae says he's blessed with a visionary verbal arsenal and an abiding faith that's piloted a unique career trajectory defying the typical hip hop storyline. "More caught than taught," is how the artist describes his incredible journey that includes two Grammys, a history-making #1 album with his masterful 2014 offering, Anomaly, and a compelling live resume, most recently notching a headlining 2016 'Destination' tour which Lecrae says was about "real unity, not pretend unity." He continues to thoughtfully engage the culture, reeling off a NY Times Bestseller (last year's riveting memoir 'Unashamed') and a breakthrough spoken word performance at the BET Hip Hop Awards last fall that had the Twitter-sphere heralding his arrival as a truth-telling firebrand. BET hailed it as an "epic poem," of "necessary affirmations."
