Interview: Ricky Rebel Releases New Music Video For Upcoming Album

(Los Angeles) – In “If You Were My Baby,” the first single from the upcoming album by Ricky Rebel, the glam rocker sings about how one should never be afraid to ask for what he or she wants from life.    The super fun video is out today, as well ten slick remixes of “If You Were My Baby” by some of the biggest DJ/producers on the planet.

“I’m sprinkling confidence into every club in the world,” proclaims Ricky Rebel from his Los Angeles home to About Magazine.  “Confidence is an asset. It shows leadership and draws people in.  I truly believe it is the most attractive quality a person can possess and to all my Rebel Mafia out there, I say: if you like someone, tell them and make a case as to why you are the best. You might be surprised with the results.”

“I had something to prove on “If You Were My Baby,” continues Rebel, who noticeably sings a lot more on the record than he has previously.  “Sam Harmonix, the producer on this single, works alongside Grammy award-winners and I wanted to impress him with my harmonies.  You know, prove there’s real talent behind the fierceness.”

The “If You Were My Baby” remixes offer a wide array of different sounds.  “Godfather of EDM” Tommie Sunshine gives the track a fun, modern twist that crosses between EDM and club in his mix, while Zambianco presents a cool tribal beat that fitness buffs will enjoy working out to.   Hector Fonseca’s version is straight up club with a Brazilian vibe that sounds tailor-made for the world’s biggest Pride festivals.  The Dirty Werk mix is a pop dance hybrid best suited for straight dance floors, while the SaberZ mix is hard core EDM, perfect for large stadiums.  DJ Hayworth’s track, with its lovely tropical deep house vibe, is the most unique of the remixes while KOIL and Vito Fun’s mix has an urban club vibe that fans of Beyonce will enjoy.  Mr. Mig’s pop remix is probably the closest to Rebel’s original track.

After Mateo Sifuentes, a Houston native and the hairstylist for Rimes informed his client that his grandmother lived at the facility, Rimes felt a need to help.

Instead of gifts, Rimes asked for donations to the YouCaring fundraiser page to assist the facility in the re-building process. “Everyone has seen coverage on Harvey and its effects to Texas and Louisiana,” LeAnn Rimes said

“I was talking to my friend and hairstylist about a devastating image that I came across and it so happens that the woman in the photo was his friend’s grandmother,” Rimes said.

“So this year, instead of birthday gifts I ask you donate to his friend’s YouCaring account that will go directly to this nursing home clean up/rebuild going as soon as possible. Thank you!”

Rimes is a Texas native, growing up in Garland, Texas, a small suburb of Dallas. She was recently the headliner for the 2017 Pride Festival in Houston.

Music Icon Beyonce Rumored To Want The Houston Rockets Basket Ball Team

(HOUSTON) — Mega pop star, and Houston native and diva, Beyonce is considering becoming an investor in the National Basketball Association’s Houston Rockets.

Houston Rockets owner Les Alexander announced is a surprise media conference last month he was selling the team. Alexander paid nearly $85 million for the team in 1993, but the team sale could reach $2 billion.

Beyonce’s husband, Jay-Z, at one time, owned a small percent in the New York Nets. Many celebrities do. For example, Justin Timberlake owns a piece of basketball’s Grizzlies.

Beyonce, who has performed wearing a Rockets jersey, would add superstar sizzle to any ownership group, likely helping the team with local and international marketing.
