New York, NY (Top40 Charts) UMe is announcing their massive celebration of Black Music Month featuring new releases and features every week that honor the black musicians, producers, artists, and stylists that changed the face of music.
Throughout June, three albums from renowned black musicians that have become unwavering classics and cornerstones of music innovation will be getting digital re-releases through UMe, available on all DSPs.

- The Roots' Do You Want More?!!!??! was the band's major label debut and an instant classic splicing old-school hip-hop with groovy jazz while poetically telling stories of black experience in Philadelphia and the US at large.
- Big Sean's 2011 release Finally Famous launched him into the upper echelon of rap royalty with singles like "Marvin & Chardonnay" and "Dance (Ass)."
- The Dude is Quincy Jones' 1981 studio album released one year before his production magnum opus, Michael Jackson's Thriller. The album found Jones experimenting and perfecting his sound, winning three Grammys and setting the caliber for 80's R&B and beyond.
- Donnie's The Colored Section is celebrating its pre-20th Anniversary this month with a digital deluxe edition that includes never-before released songs/remixes. The critically-acclaimed and deeply inspiring record touches on the societal and cultural topics of slavery, racism, oppression, consumerism, hair, same sex love and post 9/11 America

On June 17th James Brown's chart-topping song "Super Bad" will be getting a brand-new colorful cut-out animated music video directed by Troy Browne, offering a new way to enjoy the three-part track that permeated pop culture for decades since its 1971 release.

In the world of innovative and musical epoch-making entrepreneurs record label Cash Money, who is marking their 30th anniversary, stands unrivaled, fostering dozens of household names in the hip-hop world. This month uDiscoverMusic will feature a celebration of the label's iconic cover art in an interview with Shawn Brauch, founder of graphic design team Pen & Pixel. The company's bold and flashy cover art became a staple for Cash Money albums including the 2000 film Baller Blockin' and was ubiquitous among southern rap in the 90's and early 2000's.

Uncovering more about the image of hip-hop, lauded fashion stylist to countless music VIPs, Marissa Flores, will be featured in a new video breaking down the most iconic looks of Lil Wayne, whose style she has helped define since the late 2000's. You can find new editorial features throughout the month here:

Four new remixes will be released in June and early July highlighting both Black and LGBTQ+ artists/remixers. The remixes include "100% Pure Love" by Crystal Waters (remixed by UNIIQU3 ft. Kidd Kenn and Saucy Santana), "Move Ya Body" by Nina Sky (remixed by Akira Akira), "Where My Girls At" by 702 (remixed by Honey Dijon), and "Impossible" by Shontelle (remixed by Coco & Breezy).

UMe has also released an interactive playlist maker in the form of their R&B Bracket Challenge. Music fans can create a playlist ranking their favorite R&B songs using the link here, and can also tune in to the official Black Music Month and R&B Bracket Challenge Playlists on Spotify.
