SAN DIEGO, May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Cricket Communications, a leading provider of innovative and value-driven wireless services, today announced exclusive Muve Music content with the release of its May Muve First and Muve Headliner artists. During the month of May, Muve Music from Cricket is pleased to showcase exclusive content from Muve First Artist DEV and Muve Headliner Artist B.o.B. This Month Muve Music will have a set of exclusive tracks with rare commentary from top up-and-coming artist DEV and Grammy nominated artist B.o.B. With Muve Music’s unlimited nationwide talk, text and data plus music plan, there are no additional fees for music and no contracts required. Muve subscribers have exclusive access to artist commentary, music and video from Muve Music’s monthly artist programs.
Muve First Artist DEV has partnered with Muve Music to record an exclusive Muve Sessions track-by-track commentary album for her new release titled, “The Night The Sun Came Up.” Muve Music will have the exclusive on DEV’s Muve Sessions track-by-track commentary album beginning May 1, 2012.
Listeners can hear the freewheeling spirit of Eminem in DEV’s music today. She’s the feathery, rhythmic voice behind the platinum, worldwide # 1 smash, “Like a G6.” In March 2011 alone, DEV could be heard on three of Billboard’s Hot 100 singles: “Like a G6,” “Bass Down Low” and “Backseat.”
Devin Star Tailes, who goes by “DEV”, was raised in Manteca near Modesto and Turlock in Northern California’s Central Valley and when she was just shy of 19, caught the attention of The Cataracs, a local hip hop duo, who happened to be surfing their fans’ sites. After moving to Los Angeles to work with The Cataracs, DEV traveled to Costa Rica where she recorded her latest album, “The Night the Sun Came Up,” which came out September 20, 2011 via Indie-Pop/Universal Republic Records. The album’s DEV powered dance tracks stay true to recent chart topping releases, but this cross-genre album also offers a more personal narrative in tracks such as “Running South.” “It’s about moving from my hometown that I lived in for 20 years to follow my dream,” she says. Be sure to check out more exclusive story telling from DEV on her Muve Music commentary tracks in May.
Muve Headliner Artist B.o.B teamed up with Muve Music to record an exclusive Muve Sessions track-by-track commentary album on the soon to be released B.o.B sophomore album “Strange Clouds.” Muve Music will have the exclusive on this Muve Sessions album starting May 8, 2012.
Winston-Salem born, globally-raised Bobby Ray, aka”B.o.B,” is a true cross-over talent. Offering genre-defying, well-balanced songs and a world view to match, B.o.B proves that living with your head in the clouds, isn’t such a bad thing after all.
The six-time Grammy nominated rapper/songwriter’s sophomore album “Strange Clouds” showcases B.o.B’s talent rapping alongside the best in the business. The proof is in the tracklisting, where the international superstar balances duets with everyone from Lil’ Wayne on the album’s platinum title track, to the Dr. Luke-produced “Both Of Us,” which sees B.o.B rapping opposite Taylor Swift.
B.o.B’s albums and tracks have achieved numerous awards, such as his Gold-certified debut album, “B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray,” and his multi-platinum, breakout hits “Airplanes” featuring Haley Williams of Paramore, and “Nothing On You” featuring Bruno Mars, which was nominated for “Record Of The Year” at the 2010 Grammy Awards.
“Being on the road and getting to record this album all over the planet gave me a chance to bring my fans on a journey with me,” says B.o.B, who headlined tours throughout Asia, Russia, Spain and the United Kingdom in 2011. “I’m glad to come home with a story to tell.” Listen to B.o.B on his track-by-track Muve Sessions album in May, exclusively on Muve Music.
