Canadian brothers DVBBS teams up with Grammy-nominated R&B artist Jeremih and singer-songwriter SK8 for "Crew Thang," a genre-bending collaboration. The track's unique style rides on dynamic melodies and groovy house basslines, all wrapped up with upbeat but velveteen vocals for a perfect balance of sexy and fun. This combination makes for the perfect anthem, launching this year's summer season, making unforgettable memories, and doing your own crew thang on or off the dance floor. It follows DVBBS's "Synergy" with Timmy Trumpet from last month, "Next To You" with Loud Luxury and Kane Brown from February, and the cheeky "SH SH SH (Hit That)" with Wiz KhalifaUrfavxboyfriend and Goldsoul from the same month, also on Ultra RecordsJeremih recently released "Chose You" with French Montana, and earlier his solo single "Changes" on Def Jam/Universal Music Group. Be on the lookout for an official music video for "Crew Thang," coming out very soon.

"Summer starts now… Big love to Jeremih for lending us his incredibly talented voice and our bro SK8 for making this come to life. 'Crew Thang' is for you and your crew to turn up. 2023 vibes." - DVBBS

"Following a huge single off my last project featuring DVBBS and Wiz Khalifa, I'm stoked to create something special with DVBBS again, and this time with Jeremih - an artist I've looked up to for a minute. 'Crew Thang' is a blend of uptempo house mixed with pop melodies that make you feel good and wanna dance. This is another super proud moment in my career. Looking forward to touring and performing this song all summer." - SK8


Only a few producers have risen to the top in the electronic music scene as quickly as DVBBS, who captured the industry's attention with hits like "Tsunami" and "Not Going Home" and never let it go. The Canadian brothers Alex and Christopher have been continuously cultivating their sound since their debut in 2012 and have racked up an impressive display of collaborations with renowned names from diverse musical backgrounds, such as blackbear24kGoldnJasmine ThompsonBellyNERVOJuicy JGalantisCody SimpsonAloe BlaccIcona PopGASHI,  and more. DVBBS continue to prove there's nothing they can't accomplish. Their hits, such as "La La Land," "Gold Skies," and the breakthrough "Angel" are staples in every dance music fan's library. Prior to the global pandemic, DVBBS performed a staggering 250 dates per year at some of the world's hottest music festivals and top-tier clubs, including TomorrowlandEDC Las VegasUltra Music FestivalHakkasan Las Vegas or Ibiza's Amnesia, and Ushuaia. Throughout their career, DVBBS has proved they are relentlessly dedicated to expanding their global footprint and bringing cutting-edge new music to their listeners.


He quickly rose to fame in 2009 with his Top 10 debut single "Birthday Sex," a lewd lullaby of sorts that sounded like nothing else at the time, optimizing the R&B artist's slinking vocals and explicit wordplay. The slow jam effectively launched the Chicago native's career, one that has been studded with additional and quite different Top 10 hits - "Down on Me" and "Don't Tell 'Em," among several more gold and platinum singles. "Jeremih" (2009), "All About You" (2010), and "Late Nights: The Album" (2015), his first three LPs were similarly awarded, while "Planez" earned Jeremih a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Performance. "Late Nights with Jeremih" and "Late Nights: The Album" became the first two parts of a trilogy with the August 2016 release of the commercial mixtape "Late Nights: Europe." The collection was highlighted by "London," featuring Stefflon Don and Krept & Konan, and "Paris (Who Taught You)," assisted by Ty Dolla $ignJeremih and fellow Chicagoan Chance The Rapper closed out 2016 with the collaborative holiday mixtape "Merry Christmas Lil' Mama." During 2017 and 2018, Jeremih released a handful of singles, and in the latter, more productive year, the singer bundled four new solo cuts as "The Chocolate Box," and teamed up again with Ty Dolla $ign to issue the full-length project "Mih-Ty." Jointly issued by Def Jam and Ty's home label, Atlantic Records, "Mih-Ty" placed at number 60 on the Billboard 200. Its single "The Light" went goldJeremih issued some more singles in 2020, but during that year through 2022, he was much more active in featured artist and co-headliner roles, appearing on Afrojack and Chico Rose's "Cloud 9," Kito and ZHU's "Follow," and Benny Benassi's "Lovelife," among many other tracks.


At 15, you could find SK8 in his room writing lyrics, and by his sophomore year, you could find him handing out CDs in high school. The 23-year-old moved to Los Angeles from OmahaNebraska, and linked with the venerable Taylor Gang, first breaking into the mainstream with his gold-certified single, "Like That," with Jack & Jack and opening for revered rap icons like Lil Wayne2 Chainz, and Rae SremmurdSK8 began building a dedicated fanbase of dreamers who related to his message of seizing every moment long before his eventual move to LA. Shortly after founding his own imprint - Alignment, and formally signing a joint venture with Atlantic Records via James McMillan's ART@WARSK8 released his major label debut EPsk8sounds, which was buttressed by the standout singles "Omme (feat. Wiz Khalifa)," "XXX" and "Mood (feat. YK Osiris)." Over a year later, SK8 has turned a new page in his career with his first single of 2021, "Famous (feat. Tyla Yaweh)," and its associated forthcoming project, which finds the rising singer seamlessly blending punk/rock instrumentation with his hip-hop origins, the latest but not last development in SK8's rapidly evolving artistry.

MANILA, May 31, 2023 – As part of the company’s annual Global Volunteer Month activities, employees from UPS teamed up with charitable organizations in Quezon City, Muntinlupa and Cebu to reinforce UPS’s commitment to giving back to the communities it serves around the world.

With this year’s projects marking a return to regular in-person activities after the switch to more virtual-based volunteerism during the pandemic, the programs provided UPS employees a chance to reconnect with the community and renew the company purpose of moving the world forward by delivering what matters.

“As this year’s global volunteer month activities draw to a close, we’re grateful to have been able to participate in more in-person projects, after having to get creative with how we carried out our volunteer programs over the last couple of years,” says Tessa Santos, UPS Philippines operation manager and Community Involvement Committee (CIC) executive sponsor.

“Two of our partners this year – SOS Children’s Village and Good Neighbors International Philippines – focus on building and supporting families and communities, which is the perfect example of delivering what matters where it’s needed most. In addition to giving us an opportunity to help the people of the community, it gives our employees a sense of accomplishment, and knowing that they are making a real difference to peoples’ lives is a hugely energizing experience.”

One of this year’s partner communities is SOS Children’s Village, an organization on a mission to build families for children in need. In order to give these children a support system and empower them to shape their own futures, UPS volunteers provided children, at first with virtual visits and then with physical ones, regular platforms on which to express themselves and build meaningful connections.

“The virtual visits we’ve done with UPS volunteers helped ensure that the social and emotional development and social integration of the children are supported,” said Romil I. Rayos del Sol, Deputy National Director of SOS Children's Villages in the Philippines.

“Our most recent project with UPS helps in providing basic needs such as food subsidies, educational supplies, additional school allowances, and funding for the improvement of the living situations in the village, youth facilities, and boarding houses. It also helps in strengthening youth empowerment and leadership by providing an opportunity to hone the leadership and project management skills of youth councils and interested young people by designing a Youth Leaders’ Summit.”

UPS also partners with another family-focused endeavor, Good Neighbors International Philippines. Established in 2008, Good Neighbors is dedicated to improving the lives of Filipinos, in particular children, through child sponsorship and community development programs. So far, the NGO has had an incredibly enlivening effect on the small town where Good Neighbors first set down roots.

“Prior to Good Neighbors, the community of Sitio Bakal was not known to many. The presence of Good Neighbors paved the way for opportunities which addressed the limitations of Sitio Bakal in terms of community involvement, livelihood and capacity building training,” said Good Neighbors’ Country Director Mr. Jae Choon Lee.


“The UPS employee engagement activity was another avenue for the Sitio Bakal community to showcase their sectoral activities and advocate for urban gardening. The facilitation of the hydroponics workshop boosted their self-confidence whilst the presentation of individual gardens gave them the opportunity to market their produce which the UPS employees wholeheartedly supported.”

 “Global volunteer month is a hugely significant time in the UPS calendar and the last couple of years have shown that we’re not going to let anything get in the way of us reaching out to the community,” added Santos.

“UPS has a set of really ambitious ESG targets, one of which is to commit 30 million volunteer hours by 2030, and another is to positively impact a billion lives by 2040. At UPS Philippines it’s an honor to be playing our part in the company achieving these goals and to be making a positive difference to the people in the communities we proudly serve.”
