Loud Luxury, the LA-based Canadian production and DJ duo of Andrew Fedyk and Joe Depace, is enjoying top 20 status this week with a track they released a year ago through Armin van Buuren’s record label, Armada Music (Sony).


“Body,” featuring vocalist Brando, debuted on the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart at 49 and climbed into the top 20, selling a bundle and garnering massive streams. With Sony behind it now, the single is exploding at radio and is one of only two CanCon songs on the Canadian Hot 100, the other being Drake at No. 1 with “God’s Plan.”

Here’s what Loud Luxury has to say about their single: “‘Body’ is one of our favourite songs we’ve ever written. For us, it represents mixing the R&B and hip-hop that we listened to growing up in Toronto with a classic Loud Luxury Sound. We made it just for the late-night drives and getting into trouble in the city.”

On tour in the US now, the duo appears at Vancouver’s Celebrities Nightclub on April 28 and Whistler’s Maxx Fish the night following.

On March 30, Loud Luxury released a new song, “Sex Like Me” featuring Dyson.

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
