AdShare Rebrands As VidaPrimo In Latin America

AdShare, the leading monetization service for music, film, television and sports rights holders, is rebranding in Latin America as VidaPrimo. The announcement was made

by AdShare CEO Jason Peterson. Last year AdShare bought VidaPrimo, one of the world's best-viewed multi-platform music networks, to forge a partnership in which

artists engage fans and advertisers reach Latin Millennials.

Simplifying The Brand
"We needed to simplify our brand and service messaging with our Latin clients," says Peterson. "The future belongs to app-based television and multi-platform outlets

like VidaPrimo. In partnership with our music artists and record labels, there is an immense opportunity to quickly grow our artist's fan base, increase their

promotion, and couple our audience to major brand advertisers to maximize artist income. Simply said, VidaPrimo in Latin America means larger audiences, more promotion

and more money for artists and labels."

The Perfect Integration
Previously, AdShare had been focusing efforts on expanding their monetizing technology services beyond YouTube to platforms such as SoundCloud and Facebook. Now, by

vertically integrating with VidaPrimo, Adshare has expanded its core offerings beyond technology, into advertising. "It's a perfect fit because we're sitting on

content that we hadn't formally organized as a multiplatform network," says Peterson of the company's Latin music clients. "When we looked across our portfolio we

realized we had a huge asset we could leverage for our clients."

VidaPrimo Soars With Music Fans
VidaPrimo is a multi-platform network much like VEVO and MTV, built specifically for the Hispanic audience and fans of Latin music. VidaPrimo is rated #3 worldwide in

music and entertainment by comScore with over 24,000,000 unique monthly visitors. The network is quickly becoming a next generation outlet for music and television

content, able to engage fans around the world via any digital platform and device.

Advertisers Reach Out
Recent numbers tells the story of VidaPrimo's ability to engage the Latin Millennial audience. The VidaPrimo advertising platform leverages its massive reach of

engaged Latin Millennials, connecting them with brands by producing and distributing premium branded entertainment content executing flawless digital media campaigns

mainly focused on video advertising opportunities. More than 25 major brand advertisers including Miller, Anheuser Busch, Wells Fargo, Dunking Donuts, and Jeep have

looked to VidaPrimo to reach Hispanic Millennial and Generation X consumers.

Recording Artist Zaena Morisho Takes The World By Storm

Female recording artist Zaena Morisho has finally released her new EP, which is currently available worldwide on Amazon and iTunes. ZAENA NOW includes five songs:

'Into You', 'Be Ur Girl', 'What Do U Want', 'BS', and 'Diva.' The mini album carries a pop/edm sound, focuses on the themes of relationships and female empowerment,

and two music videos are forthcoming for 'What Do U Want' and 'BS', as well as a long form album release in 2017. This is her second EP to be released since 'You Don't

Know' in 2014.

'What Do U Want' addresses the confusion that can arise from a relationship where it is difficult to pin down exactly what your partner wants, and the conflicted

feelings that build up from that kind of situation. The song asks 'what do you really want from me', and expresses frustration as the relationships keeps fluctuating

between highs and lows, unsure of what things will be like between one moment and the next. 'BS' explores another kind of relationship getting together with someone

you weren't aware was already in another relationship, and all the deception and secrecy that builds up in such a situation. Zaena calls for 'enough of the BS games',

tired of giving her all when she's not getting it back. 'Diva', 'Be Your Girl', and 'Into You' all celebrate the feeling of being an independent woman, who lives her

life to the fullest without needing a man to complete her.

About Zaena Morisho: Zaena is a Congo born artiste, raised in Houston Texas, who moved to Los Angeles a few years ago to pursue music and modeling.

not have had at the height of its fame. Says guitarist Bunny Ledesma, "I feel like we have a lot of new, young female fans, so our audience is pretty well-balanced

couple of guys playing some cover songs just for the fun of it, but eventually resulting into an online-stores release. As some of these guys had their reasons for

remaining anonymous, it was decided simply not to credit anyone at all. Then later, when things further developed into an organized project, this initial coincidence
