JC – Ups & Downs @JCutroneo

Published

on

JC (Justin Cutroneo) is just a regular guy from the suburbs of Old Bridge, New Jersey that is a huge fan of hip-hop. He started making music for fun about 2 years ago, but as of recent he gained some success and began to take music more seriously. JC enjoys making music that is very relatable and fun because he believes music can help people with any obstacle that is faced in ones life. Music became the most powerful way to express himself and it has definitely changed his life.

JC, at age 21, has a deep passion and love for music, but he knows there is a lot of room for growth and improvement. He just dropped his first ever project called “Ups & Downs” and it has gained a liking from many people. His dream is to become a famous musician, and with the continuous hard work, that dream can become reality.

Ups & Downs is my first mixtape, and the goal is to take listeners on a journey through my mind. There are songs that are fun and upbeat, and there are songs that are deep and very relatable. It is a quick project with only 7 tracks, but it is a great listen that makes you want more. Everything except the instrumentals was done on my own. There was no studio, no engineer, and no songwriter involved in the making of this project. With all that being said, I hope that people enjoy my music and my passion for the art. There is much more to come!

Meet Rising Toronto Musician Natalie Reign

Natalie Reign is a musician from Toronto, Canada, who is passionate about her profession and wants to use it to make a difference in people’s lives. Natalie Monchis is her real name, but she uses the stage name “Natalie Reign” to remind herself and others of the necessity of starting with the right mindset in order to succeed in life.

“I had been struggling for quite some time to find an artist name that represented me, my music, and the message I wanted to portray to my audience,” explains Natalie about how she landed with her pen name. “By fluke, the word Reign, which symbolizes royalty, power, and strength, came to me. The name is a reminder for myself and my listeners to believe in ourselves and to push through life to help us build confidence and resilience.”

Natalie is most known for her last hit, “Royal,” now she’s back with “Lose Your Mind,” her new single. The latter was created in collaboration with TVGUCCI, a renowned musical artist and OVO affiliate, and has begun to acquire traction on different music platforms. It’s an energetic tune that demonstrates Reign’s versatility as an artist by demonstrating her ability to create a variety of sounds.

Natalie Reign has always loved music and dancing since she was a child. Her Russian background simply added to her ability to sing and twirl wherever she went. The artist’s family recollections include a lot of singing because Russian-style celebrations always included live music and dancing. She also grew up listening to ABBA, Boney M, and other musical giants from the 1980s. “Overall, I feel my upbringing has impacted my view on life, my open-mindedness, pushed me to experiment with new sounds, and given me a tremendous respect for arts in general,” Natalie adds.

Natalie Reign did not begin her musical career until 2017. She began as an artist brand under her own name, but subsequently added the term “Reign,” which has proven to be a significant addition. Her music is mostly influenced by afro, rap, hip hop, and R&B. Despite having a fear of public speaking as a child, Natalie has learnt to embrace the spotlight and shine, as seen by her current single, “Lose Your Mind,” featuring TVGUCCI.

Natalie Reign tells how the collaboration occurred unexpectedly but has turned into an amazing gem of a track when discussing about her current hit. TVGUCCI happened to be the next in line to record while working on “Lose Your Mind” with her sound engineer at Abstract Studios. The music celebrity took the next spot, but surprised everyone by asking to perform Natalie’s song and even adding a full verse of his own. Natalie Reign remembers, “I was in utter astonishment and was shocked that he had loved the song so much that he wanted to jump on it.” “As a last thought, anticipate the unexpected.”

Natalie hopes to create more music that appeals to individuals from all walks of life. She presently works in the criminal justice system during the day and writes music on the side. On Instagram and Spotify, you can follow Natalie Reign and her music to keep up with her journey.
