Cardi B and Bruno Mars have dropped a visual for their R&B-tinged hit, “Please Me.” The Stereotypes-produced collaboration debuted at No. 5 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and was the most-downloaded track of February on DJcity.
The 80s-inspired visual sees Cardi and Bruno running into each other at a restaurant in Los Angeles. The pair and their entourages then head out for a late-night joyride around the city.

Best known for working with Bruno Mars and Far East Movement, The Stereotypes are up for three Grammys this year. They’re nominated for Producer of the Year (Non-Classical), and Best R&B Song and Song of the Year for Bruno’s “That’s What I Like.”
How they overcame their “down period” after achieving success with Far East Movement:
Jonathan: “… we really were struggling and we needed to figure out how we’re gonna survive. And so, where we went, we went to [South] Korea. We stared doing K-Pop. … They accepted us because they knew our resume and they knew that we were the guys who worked with Far East Movement.”
Working with different kinds of artists:
Ray: “That’s why we created and worked on that Pitbull record, ‘Jungle,’ because we really wanna collab with a bunch of different artists. Putting Pitbull, E-40, Abraham Mateo, like you would never would think to put those guys [on the same track].”
How they also want to work with new artists:
Ray: “Everyone’s trying to shoot for like the biggest artists that are out right now, because honestly, every producer and writer is trying to shoot for that. And what better to do than to make your own [artist].”
Advice to aspiring producers:
Ray: “Going back to the Bruno sessions, it didn’t feel like we were making music. It didn’t feel like we were working. It just felt like friends together making something that we love. … So, surround yourself with people that are just like-minded and have the same goals and that want to go in the same direction. … And don’t only just be concentrated on the creative side. Be on top of your business …”
Pitbull throws a wild yacht party in the video for his funk-influenced single, “Jungle.” The colorful visual shows The Stereotypes, E-40, and Abraham Mateo lost in the jungle before getting rescued by Mr. 305.
The track, which appears on Pitbull’s newly released greatest hits album, was DJcity’s sixth most downloaded song of November.

Before producing hit singles for artists like the Far East Movement and Bruno Mars, Jerm Beats had a different passion: eating. Unfortunately, his love for food led him to become obese, causing a concerned friend to reach out to him out about his weight.
That’s when Jerm, whose real name is Jeremy Reeves, knew he had to change. So he set off on an inspiring life-changing journey, all while working as a member of The Stereotypes production trio.
The Stereotypes are best known for their collaborations with the Far East Movement. The Grammy-winning crew has also worked with the likes of Justin Bieber, Usher, Ne-Yo, and Mary J. Blige. In 2016, they produced Bruno Mars’ hit singles “24K Magic” and “That’s What I Like.”
Reeves has now shared his incredible story on an episode of Barbell Brigade’s Dominate Humbly series. The series highlights the stories of influential people in weightlifting.
The Sacramento native discusses his struggles with eating, the moment he decided to change, and how he got into bodybuilding. He also gives a tour of his studio.
