Mustard (Dijon McFarlane) is a hip hop and R&B DJ and producer from South Central LA whose 2010 rise is attributed to a simple, hypnotic sound. Known for hits including Tyga's "Rack City", 2 Chainz's "I'm Different”, and Young Jeezy's "R.I.P", he was also behind a quartet of singles that hit the Top Ten of Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart, including YG's "My N*gga", Ty Dolla $ign's "Paranoid", Kid Ink's "Show Me", and Trey Songz's "Na Na”. His debut album, 10 Summers (Roc Nation) arrived in 2014 and his follow up album, which featured appearances by YG, Ty Dolla $ign, Rick Ross, Young Jeezy, Nicki Minaj, Young Thug, Quavo, John Legend and many more, dropped in 2016. In 2016 he also produced Rihanna’s longest-charting and five-time platinum hit, “Needed Me”. A year later he returned with The Ghetto, which included the single "Is It Mine", featuring RJMrLA. He can be found performing everywhere from Coachella to EDC.
Nick Jonas, the multi-platinum, Grammy and Golden Globe nominated recording artist, actor, and award winning songwriter, released his self-titled debut album in November 2014. The critically-acclaimed album included the triple-platinum and #1 U.S. radio hit, “Jealous”. A recipient of the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame's prestigious Hal David Starlight Award, Jonas released his sophomore solo album ‘Last Year Was Complicated’ in June 2016. Jonas also co-wrote an original song titled “Home” for the movie “Ferdinand”, released by FOX Animation. The song was nominated for 2018 Golden Globe in the category of “Best Original Song”. Jonas can currently be seen alongside Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black in “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle”. He recently completed production on Lionsgate's post-apocalyptic thriller, “Chaos Walking”, starring Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland which is scheduled for release in March 2019.
The buzz about the sisters Chloe x Halle began building back in 2013 by way of their YouTube Channel where they posted their now-infamous covers of popular songs. Their rendition of Beyoncé’s ballad “Pretty Hurts” garnered over 15 million views and ultimately led to a recording deal with Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment. Since then, Chloe x Halle served as the opening act for “The Formation World Tour” and appeared in the now-legendary visual masterpiece for Lemonade. In 2016, they also lent their voices to the song, “This is for My Girls” (alongside Kelly Rowland, Zendaya and Janelle Monáe, among them) in support of Let Girls Learn, an education-focused initiative launched by former President Obama and First Lady, Michelle Obama. Their on-screen credits include their roles as Jazz and Sky on Freeform’s hit comedy “Grown-ish” for which they also co-wrote the series theme song, “Grown”.
