Markus Paterson is back with the new single “Help,” following his recently released collab track “Hotel Room” with Kyle Echarri. Markus’s vocals on the track suit the vibe just right helping take us on a lyrical journey of self-awareness and discovery. The track is produced by Indian Songwriter, Producer, and Artist, Aman Sagar, a Berklee College of Music Alum.
Markus described “Help” as a song about owning one’s vices and imperfections. “This song is where you understand the pain and how you cope with it, and it’s the journey of accepting the fact that it’s okay to have a little help every now and then,” Markus said.
In a press release for the single, Aman mentions that he connected with Markus through the help of Tarsier Records A&R Devin Lopez, who reached out to him after he won his second beat battle in 2021. “I sent him some more demos, and before you know it, he hooked me up with Markus, who already had a song written and was looking for someone to produce it,” Aman recalled.

As BGYO’s “The Baddest” music video continues to rack up views, the live performances for this new comeback are beginning to pop up, and we couldn’t be any more excited to see the boys working it out on stage. But, we all knew this was coming sooner than later because dance practice footage was released on their official Youtube page.
BGYO helped bring the ACE Elite Secret Service to life from the rehearsal room to the ASAP stage! With glimpses of the choreo in the dance breaks from the official music video, we can already see that “The Baddest” would be visually great to witness live. From what we saw on the ASAP stage this past weekend, we were totally right.
This is just the beginning of this era, and just like the rest of the ACE fandom out there, we’re sure all of us are looking forward to the next!
