On Friday (June 17), Unc and Phew pulled up to ColorsXStudios ahead of the first annual federally recognized Juneteenth holiday to kick off the festivities honoring Black Music Month with a vibrant live rendition of their explosive “Hotel Lobby” single. The ultra-rare performance from the Migos’ front men also marks the beginning of a new relationship between Colors and the original hit factory, Motown Records.
Quavo (@QuavoStuntin) and TakeOff (@1YoungTakeoff) join forces as Unc & Phew for a stellar performance of their latest single ‘HOTEL LOBBY’ as part of our collaboration with Motown Records (@motown) for Black Music Month. 💎

In addition to Quavo and Takeoff, the Black Music Month series will feature new episodes premiering on June 20 and 22 and will conclude on June 24 with a one-of-a-kind performance from a mystery “generational icon,” who will also announce their new deal with Motown — which currently boasts a roster of artists such as Vince Staples, Lil Baby, Smino, Lil Yachty and more.
While Atlanta-based record label Quality Control has already built long-standing ties with Motown, the Southern Hip Hop imprint recently renewed its bond with the outfit founded by industry veteran Berry Gordy by securing a record deal for their rising Milwaukee-bred MC Lakeyah.
