MULTIPLATINUM RECORDING ARTIST AND PRODUCER RUSS ANNOUNCES THIRD MAJOR LABEL ALBUM SHAKE THE SNOW GLOBE SET FOR RELEASE JANUARY 31
Multiplatinum recording artist and producer Russ has announced that his third major label album, SHAKE THE SNOW GLOBE, will release on January 31, 2020. The album will include all brand new songs and will be available for pre-order this Friday, December 6.
Russ has also unveiled his plans for a headline tour in summer 2020. He will perform 27 shows across North America, beginning in Seattle on May 1 and wrapping up in Russ’ hometown of Atlanta on June 28. The full list of dates and all ticket information is available at Russ.is/tour. Every ticket purchased for US dates on Russ’ tour includes a CD of SHAKE THE SNOW GLOBE.
The album announcement follows the success of one of Russ’ most viral songs to date with “BEST ON EARTH” featuring BIA. The Boi-1da and Jahaan Sweet produced track shot up the charts upon release and has received over 50 million streams and views to date. Rihanna posted the track to her social media calling it her “new fav song,” inspiring a #BestOnEarthChallenge. The song is currently climbing the charts at radio and has been added to top playlists including Today’s Hits on Apple Music and Rap Caviar on Spotify.
Russ also recently released his Wall Street Journal, USA Today and Publishers Weekly bestseller self-help book IT’S ALL IN YOUR HEAD. In his book, Russ inspires readers to walk to their individual rhythms and overcome their biggest obstacles: themselves. With chapters named after his most powerful and popular songs, IT’S ALL IN YOUR HEAD reflects on the lessons that Russ has learned from his career, family, and relationships. With illustrations throughout consistent with the brand Russ has built and his fan base loves, IT’S ALL IN YOUR HEAD gives readers an inside look at the man and the motivation behind the music.
SHAKE THE SNOW GLOBE follows Russ’ previous albums ZOO (2018) and There’s Really A Wolf (2017). In his 10+ years of releasing music, the 27-year-old has developed an extensive catalog of music that has collectively surpassed over a billion streams on Spotify/Apple Music alone and nearly 1.5 billion video views. He has landed himself on Forbes’ 2019 “30 Under 30,” Forbes’ “Hip-Hop Cash Kings 2018,” and has sold out arenas around the globe, becoming one of the most popular and engaged rappers of today.
