After successfully launching DJ Snake’s `Premiere Classe Records’ in India, newly launched Independent Record Label, 9122 Records, is thrilled to exclusively release ”Money Maker”, a Latin infused Urban smash hit.“Money Maker” is the result of a scintillating collaborative effort between UK Popstar Tara McDonald and influential Latin Superstars Zion & Lennox. Dubbed the ‘Queen of Dance’ and described by Rolling Stone Magazine as "The white singer with the black voice", Tara has featured on numerous hit singles from the likes of Armand van Helden ("My My My"), Axwell ("Feel the Vibe") and more. However, her collaboration with David Guetta on "Delirious" was the turning point as the hit track ignited her solo career.
Reggaeton duo Zion & Lennox from Carolina, Puerto Rico, are one of the most influential Latin artistes around. Multi-Platinum and Billboard award winners, they have more than 50 hit singles and 2 Billboard Music Latin Awards - ‘Best Song’ and ‘Best Artists’, 2016 - and 1 Latin American Music Award - `Urban Duo’, 2016. At the top of the charts since 2010, releasing collaborations with Pitbull, Don Omar, Daddy Yankee, Akon, Farruko, Nicky Jam and recently "No Es Justo" with J Balvin which stayed at No.1 in Latin American charts for 18 weeks! Zion & Lennox are now in the Top 100 Most Streamed artists in the world!
Say Tara McDonald, "”Money Maker” is a song where music cultures collide, influenced by my travels around the world touring. I'm most proud of this as I believe in racial equality, we are stronger together and the song reflects this message! A melting pot of sounds and rhythms, from India, Asia, Latin America & Europe with a pop edge! And having pros Zion + Lennox on the track is a dream come true. They brought "Money Maker" to a whole new level with their swag and hooks! Proper gentlemen too, super fun to work with and brought their A game to this project!!"
Sunil D’Sa, Founder, 9122 Records said, “When I first heard “Money Maker”, I was blown away by its hypnotic Latin infused vibe. It’s such an incredibly fresh sounding English / Spanish urban record, where cultures collide. Zion + Lennox are superstars in the Latin world and Tara McDonald is a pop sensation waiting to happen worldwide! I’m sure “Money Maker” will explode globally and will expand the fanbase of these artistes the world over including India!”

Those of you who have been around from the 1960's through the 1990's will remember the vibrant live music scene in almost every starred hotel in India. Those were the days when you walked into a nightclub like 'Rendezvous' at The Taj Mahal hotel and 'Supper Club' at the Oberoi Sheraton in Mumbai to see curtains going up on a band that was the prime focus of these outlets. Every seat in these restaurants allowed an unobstructed view of the band that performed every night on resident contracts. Today all this has disappeared thanks to some ridiculously high entertainment taxes on live music. Today, non off these hotels have complete bands playing save for a few that feature small duos or solo singers. The Lodhi in New Delhi, recently listed among the world's best hotels, decided to step in and rewind to the good old days. They got Goa's premier jazz quartet 'Jazz Junction' to move to Delhi on a resident contract and the decision has paid off in terms of footfalls generated by the band. Jazz Junction featuring singer Daniella Rodrigues, pianist Tony Dias,
bassist Colin D'Cruz and drummer Angelo Colasco began playing at The Lodhi in June 2018. Four months into the contract the band generated a sizeable following, with quite a few high profile guests choosing to celebrate their special occasion at the Elan bar where the band performs. Against all odds the rewind option proved to be a huge success and hopefully other properties around the country takes the cue to trigger a whole new revival of live music.
