The Top 10 Artists of 2017 have been named by Billboard and they are all men. Don’t worry ladies, we know you’ll rule again. (Wait…I was just reminded that you always rule.) For me it’s hard to believe there isn’t one single female act on the list. It’s even harder to believe that this is the third time the entire Top 10 have been all-male acts or solo men. The last time the guys dominated the year-end chart was way back in 1984. So where’s the female representation? It looks like hip-hop acts had a big voice on the charts and that’s pretty much a male–dominated genre. Plus pop’s two biggest stars, Adele and Taylor Swift, were between albums for most of the chart year. So who’s the big guy winner this year? With his second No. 1 album and a plethora of hit singles including the No. 1 song of the year- Ed Sheeran has been named 2017 Top Artist.  

My year-end show will contain many of the year’s top artists and top hits, but this weekend I’m bringing the current and new musical heat on In The Mix with HK™! Get ready to shake your mistletoe with exclusive HK remixes on Selena Gomez & Marshmello, NF, Clean Bandit feat. Julia Michaels, P!nkKhalidMacklemore feat. Kesha and of course Ed Sheeran. Plus new bangers from Bebe Rexha, BTS, G-Eazy & Halsey and Axwell & Ingrosso are gonna be droppin’ like snowflakes in a blizzard. And that’s just getting’ the Yule Log lit! I’m packing all sorts of mad crazy beats to set your holiday party off!

It seems like every Friday a major pop star makes my day by showering us with a new studio album and this week its Kelly Clarkson’s turn with “Meaning of Life”. On this, her eighth album and first with Atlantic Records, Kelly is said to summon her inner Aretha. Other critics write that Clarkson goes full bore Mariah Carey showing off her multi-octave range. Some even say it’s a soulful stunner and the best album of her career. If Kelly’s first single, the Motown inspired, “Love So Soft" is any indication of the rest of the tracks on “Meaning of Life”, I’ll be picking that baby up this weekend. 

Speaking of this weekend… Set an alert cause I’ve got an epic In The Mix with HK™ throw down on tap that you don’t wanna miss! With all this Kelly Clarkson talk I’m jonesin’ to put my signature on “Love So Soft”. Plus I’m in the studio working on custom HK remixes on hits from Demi LovatoEd SheeranPortugal. The ManAxwell & IngrossoLiam PayneHailee SteinfeldAlessoFlorida Georgia Line and so much more. And, just when you think you can catch your breath, I’ll be breakin’ in new beats and throwin' down an “OMG I love that song” classic updated HK style.

With two hits in the Top 20 Imagine Dragons are out on tour and tearing up the concert scene. Their live performances always blow me away because of the groups amazing musicianship, lyrics, vocals and staging. On this tour they also touched the heart of the audience by promoting love and sharing their feelings on the Vegas Shooting (they are, after all, from Las Vegas). Lead vocalist Dan Reynolds addressed the crowd saying; Someone has tried to inflict fear into the gathering of people to listen to music together… and we will not be fearful!...Music will prevail! It was a powerful, personal, uplifting moment and the crowd went crazy. Check out all he had to say in this exclusive HK video!

Music will always prevail on In the Mix with HK™! Which is why I’ve been in the studio all week working on new joints to pump up your weekend!

In recent years music lovers have suffered senseless attacks of horrific violence - the shooting during the Eagles of Death Metal concert in Paris, Pulse night club shooting in Miami, the Manchester Arena bombing after an Ariana Grande concert and now the Route 91 Harvest Festival, shooting in Vegas. This is the second time in less than 18 weeks that I find myself writing about it. My heart is broken and thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families. I have to keep reminding myself that love and kindness will always win and in a free and open society we will continue to go out and enjoy life and live music. It’s more scary now, in the wake of these tragedies and we all have to be more vigilant. Music is the thing that brings us all together and it will never be silenced.

This weekend I’m embracing love, life and the positive power of music! I’m pulling out all the stops with custom HK remixes on your favorite chart topers from Taylor SwiftMacklemoreKelly ClarksonPortugal.

Portugal. The Man Is A Band From Alaska!

Portugal. The Man isn't a man, it's a band and they're not from Portugal. They hail from Portland Oregon by-way-of Alaska. And they have their first mainstream Top 20 hit on their hands with “Feel It Still”. While they may be new to some people, Portugal. The Man’s debut album was released in 2006 and their current album Woodstock  is their eighth. When Billboard asked vocalist John Gourley why he thinks “Feel It Still” is their first song to crack the Hot 100  he said; “Anytime you borrow – or should I say, buy – the melody from (The Marvelettes) “Please Mr. Postman”, I feel like it should work. (This song) came about so naturally, just bass and a vocal. You can’t plan that stuff though, I’d like to think I could sit down and say ‘Hey guys, let’s write a hit,’ but there’s something really natural about this song and the way it came together.” It also doesn’t hurt that the song is used in a Vitaminwater ad with Aaron Paul dancing on a treadmill.

This weekend I’ll be dancin’ behind the decks when I cook up a custom HK remix on “Feel It Still” along with other bangers from Demi Lovato, Jonas Blue, Niall Horan, Kesha and that’s just the tip of my sonic iceberg. I can’t wait to spin some magic on brand spankin' new tracks from Taylor Swift, Sam Smith, P!nk, Maroon 5 and Kelly Clarkson. The musical mayhem kicks into full gear when I mashup some of your favorite throwbacks. It’s a party you don’t wanna miss.

Macklemore is back with a preview single from his upcoming first solo album in nearly 12 years. That’s right it’s a “solo album” cause he and Ryan Lewis are on a…break. Macklemore says of the split: “Lewis is my brother forever. There will be more M&RL music to come when the time is right. Last November, I built a studio in the basement of my home and got back to basics. I was able to find a balance with my art, recovery and being a dad. I wanted to make an album and raise my baby girl.” The first track from Macklemore’s new album is Glorious, featuring Skyler Grey. It’s starting to climb the charts and I’m getting ready to climb all over those beats!

This weekend on In The Mix with HK™ check out Macklemore’s new banger! Plus I’m workin’ on custom HK remixes of hits from Hailee Steinfeld, Shawn Mendes, Kesha, DJ Khaled, Liam Payne, Zedd, Major Lazer and so much more!

Imagine Dragons are blowing up the charts with their latest hit Believer. But to frontman Dan Reynolds this track is more than another chart topper. Reynolds has suffered from Ankylosing Spondylitis leading to debilitating pain and depression. These days Reynolds overall health has done a 180 with what he describes as “a lot of physical and mental work”.  Dan says; “The song is about how pain made me a believer”. “It made me a believer in myself, It’s made me a believer in my art and work”.

I’m a believer! This weekend I can’t wait to do a custom HK remix on that Imagine Dragons Top 10 smash.
