WITH TRUMP GONE FROM THE WHITE HOUSE, WILL POP MUSIC BRIGHTEN UP AGAIN?

It’s been hard to ignore the explosive 2020 election, even for many non-Americans. Tight races in over a half dozen battleground states, baseless claims of voter fraud by the Trump administration, and slew of weak lawsuits challenging the result that have almost collectively (and gratifyingly) gone nowhere. And that’s just the last week. As for…

THE 2020 ELECTION: WHERE WE ARE, HOW WE GOT HERE, AND THE MANY PLACES WE MAY GO

The 2020 Presidential Election results need no real introduction, but just in case you are one of the many still outstanding apolitical Americans who still bafflingly don’t see the value in your vote, here’s one anyway. On Saturday morning, after what seemed like the longest week of 2020 (and that’s saying something), major news outlets…

EMERGING UK ARTIST BELLE SCAR TAKES US ON A JOURNEY THROUGH TIME AND SPACE ON NEW SINGLE “THE EERINESS”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40qbYuh9SKs&feature=youtu.be&ab_channel=BelleScar If we could briefly describe the philosophy that embodies the work of London-based singer-songwriter and performance artist Belle Scar, it would be the old adage “its not about the destination, but the journey.” The Canadian-born artist, real name Geeta, has just as much of a visual identity as sonic one, crafting elaborate and avant…

EXCLUSIVE: KENDRA ERIKA ON MAKING MUSIC DURING THE PANDEMIC, HER NEW ALBUM, AND SOULFUL NEW BALLAD “AVALANCHE”

Dance music artist Kendra Erika has been a mainstay on the Billboard Dance charts for the last couple years, scoring five top ten hits in just under three years. One of those tracks, her cover of Laura Branigan’s 80s hit “Self Control,” hit the top spot early last year. And just last month, after premiering…

BEN CHANDLER ELEVATES THE WORLD OF BEDROOM INDIE ROCK WITH HIS SWEET NEW TRACK “STRAWBERRY CANDY”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0peDrFlTLA It’s not often that the worlds of modern pop mix so tastefully with those of classic rock and contemporary hip-hop, and even less frequently that you hear the results described as “heartwarming” or “low-key.” But with his newest single “Strawberry Candy,” up-and-coming artist Ben Chandler manages to marry all of his varied influences together,…

THE DEFINITIVE LIST OF GEN-Z FASHION FAVS AND HOW THEY ARE INFILTRATING THE WORLD OF HIGH FASHION

With every generation comes a new set of trends, even if that list sometimes includes trends from generations past. But beyond the typical fashion fads like tie-dye and tiny glasses, the young people of Generation Z have expanded their wardrobe’s horizons to include brands and individual garments that take philosophical stands; that represent something beyond…

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: PAAPA ESSIEDU CAPTIVATES US ON SCREEN THIS YEAR IN “I MAY DESTROY YOU” AND “GANGS OF LONDON”

Despite the pandemic, actor Paapa Essiedu has had quite a prolific year. Right off the heels of the critically acclaimed I May Destroy You, on which he played the understated yet complex Kwame, Essiedu is on our screens again, this time in a completely different role. Diving into the seedy underbelly of London, Essiedu's newest…

KIIARA CONFRONTS HERSELF ON DEBUT ALBUM “LIL KIIWI”

Most would be hesitant or embarrassed to use words like “reckless,” “unpredictable” or “ignorant” to describe themselves, even in the past. For electropop singer Kiiara, those flaws of her past self helped shape her into who she is today, and inform her music on a deeply personal level. On her debut album lil kiiwi, Kiiara presents…

K-POP HAS NEVER BEEN BIGGER, AND BLACKPINK IS AT THE CENTER OF IT ALL

K-Pop girl group BLACKPINK’s debut Korean-language LP, aptly titled THE ALBUM, broke the record for first week sales by a Korean girl group, selling 590k records in a single day and surpassing 1 million pre-orders. Forbes even projects the album securing it a No. 2 spot on the Billboard 200 charts. With four unique deluxe…

THE SHOW WENT ON AT MILAN FASHION WEEK WITH DIVERSITY AND BODY POSITIVITY REFRESHINGLY FRONT AND CENTER

Against the odds of a global pandemic, Milan Fashion Week went predominantly as planned. Italy, one of the biggest initial hotspots for the COVID-19 virus earlier this year, the first European country to impose a lockdown and at one point the country with the most coronavirus-related deaths, certainly demonstrated its ability to recover better than…

AMERICA WAS NEVER GOING TO BE READY TO SEE “TENET” IN THEATERS

Christopher Nolan’s Tenet was simply put, not the grand American “Return to the Movies” Hollywood was hoping for. With a staggering $200 million production budget, Nolan’s most expensive to date, the film has only made back a paltry $3.4 million in the states. Despite perfectly satisfactory reviews, Americans were just not motivated enough (or perhaps…

GALANTIS AND NGHTMRE ON THEIR NEW COLLABORATIVE SINGLE “TU TU TU” FEATURING LIAM O’DONNELL

Two of EDM’s biggest players, Galantis and NGHTMRE, have come together for a dynamic collaboration that features the best of each act’s amazing producing talents. The single, “Tu Tu Tu (That’s Why We),” featuring vocals from Liam O’Donnell, comes out today, and boasts a deliriously catchy island beat and thumping baseline that crescendos into an…

THE BEST TIKTOK ACCOUNTS TO CHECK OUT BEFORE IT GETS BANNED

If you’re an avid TikTok user, or are merely interested in the lifestyle, you no doubt have had quite a rollercoaster of a week. Last Friday, President Trump announced an official ban on the social media application (following initial rumblings back in July) stating that it would be unavailable to download from any app stores on…

HOW RUTH BADER GINSBURG BECAME AN ICON FOR MILLENNIALS AND GEN-Z

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, The Notorious R.B.G., Kiki, was and forever will be an icon to so many people. The late Supreme Court Justice died on Friday evening, September 18, 2020, due to complications with metastatic pancreatic cancer. At 87 years young, she passed away in her Washington home to the deafeningly loud mourning of a…

THE BROOKLYN MUSEUM IS THE LATEST TO SELL ARTWORK IN ORDER TO STAY AFLOAT DURING THE PANDEMIC

Earlier this week, the Brooklyn Museum announced its plan to sell 12 historical paintings in order to pay for the maintenance of their full collection. The auctions will take place on October 1 and 15 at Christie’s, and includes lauded works by Courbet, Corot and Cranach, amongst others, with works ranging in estimated value from…

WHAT WILL, SHOULD, AND MIGHT WIN AT THE 2020 EMMYS

In spite of the tumultuous last half year, the current pandemic has done very little to derail the typical media storm leading up to the Primetime Emmy broadcast. Perhaps it’s the escapism we have been so desperate to cling onto in short bursts over the last six months, or maybe there really is nothing that…

10 BLACK AMERICAN LEADERS OUR TEXTBOOKS SHOULD SHINE MORE LIGHT ON

It is impossible to understate the lasting influence of historic Black American leaders like Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Malcolm X, Harriet Tubman, Langston Hughes, W.E.B. Du Boise, and more recent voices like Barack and Michelle Obama. But the history of the Civil Rights Movement, as well as countless aspects of general American culture…
