Republic Records Is First Label to Partner With Grammy Museum on New Spotlight Saturdays Series

Republic Records is the first label to team with the Grammy Museum on a new program series featuring up-and-coming artists called Spotlight Saturdays. Next month, Republic is using the platform to spotlight Kiana Ledé (Aug. 1), BENEE (Aug. 8), Conan Gray (Aug. 15), DUCKWRTH (Aug. 22) and Jeremy Zucker (Aug. 29).

Four of the five artists are in their early 20s. The exception is DUCKWRTH, a stage name for rapper Jared Lee. He is 32.

BENEE’s “Supalonely” (featuring Gus Dapperton), one of the year’s most irresistible singles, has been a fixture on the Billboard Hot 100 for 19 weeks. It has climbed as high as No. 39. The single reached No. 2 on the Official New Zealand Music Chart in BENEE’s home country. The song is featured on BENEE’s EP Stella & Steve, which reached No. 138 on the Billboard 200.

The other artists have also made the Billboard 200 with album projects. DUCKWRTH had a track on the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack, which reached No. 2. He teamed with Shaboozey on the track “Start a Riot.”Gray’s debut album, Kid Krow, debuted and peaked at No. 5. Ledé’s KIKI climbed as high as No. 30. Zucker’s Love Is Not Dying reached No. 57.

Spotlight Saturdays is part of the Museum’s Public Programs digital series, which features intimate sit-down interviews and performances via digital conferencing. The content is available at GrammyMuseum.org.
