The Weeknd is one those megastars that everyone is always demanding music from. The last time we got a full-length project from The Weeknd, it was all the way back in 2016 with Starboy. Now, fans are looking for a lot more and they got near the tail end 2019 as the artist dropped two singles: “Heartless” and ” Blinding Lights.” The visual for “Heartless” has already been released and now, fans are waiting for the “Blinding Lights” music video.
Recently, the Canadian singer took to Twitter and Instagram with an image himself and a woman with the caption “tomorrow.” Based on his other Instagram posts, it appears as though the singer is gearing up to release a music video and fans are extremely excited.
It remains to be seen what this video is for, exactly. Of course, the most likely option is that it’s specifically for “Blinding Lights.” Some fans are optimistic that this could actually be for a new track that no one has ever heard before. Either way, it’s safe to say we’re excited to see what Abel is about to hit us with.
Stay tuned for updates on what The Weeknd drops tomorrow as we will be sure to bring them to you.
Former NFL QB Tim Tebow and 2017’s Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters are ficially husband and wife following their wedding at the La Paris Estate in Cape Town, South Africa. According to People Magazine, the 30-minute ceremony was attended by over 250 guests.
“I’ve been looking forward to three things,” said Tebow, according to People. “The first moment I see her in her wedding dress, the first kiss, and the first dance together as man and wife. It’s such a special night.”
“I’ve been waiting my entire life for someone special, who I can spend the rest my life with. I was waiting for the right person to come along. And now I’m marrying Demi. I can’t wait to see what our future holds. All my dreams have come true. It was 100 percent worth the wait.”
“We’re both very traditional. We wanted to look back at the wedding and see that it was intimate, elegant, and traditional. We definitely wanted it to be something that we could look back on and know that nothing was dated. We want to remember this day for the rest our lives.”
As for the wedding cake, the couple reportedly opted for a “keto-friendly” cheesecake so Tebow didn’t have to stray from his diet.
Anytime an artist decides to hop f Instagram or social media as a whole, it can be indicative a few things. Some may take it as an artist readying a new album while others hop f in order to avoid social media hysterics, especially when controversy strikes. It’s unclear what Trey Songz motive might be but the singer has ficially hopped f Instagram. As pointed out by TheShadeRoom, his Instagram has no posts and says “User not found.”
Again, there isn’t any concrete evidence or word why the singer decided to call it quits on the ‘Gram. It’s unclear if this is temporary or not but it should be noted that he also hasn’t been active on Twitter since late 2019, although his page is still up. It has been nearly three years since the release his last studio album, Tremaine The Album. He did, however, drop two mixtapes in 2018, 11 and 28. For all we know, he could very well be readying his eighth studio album.
His absence from social media might also have to do with a recent lawsuit he was hit with. Trey Songz was sued for $10M by a woman who accused him ually assaulting her at a nightclub on New Year’s Day 2018. It’s unclear if this actually plays a role in deactivating IG but it does add to the other allegations against him by other women.

The Game saw that the youngins’ were being approached by the police and made his way over. The “How We Do” rapper gave the kids some cash – or as he stated in the video some “jewels.” Apparently, he gave them enough money to cover all their inventory and didn’t even take any their treats.
Towards the end the clip below, where The Game explains the situation, you can see Freddie Gibbs coming through to make an appearnce and admitst that the “boys in the blue” are always on him as well.
Atlanta Hawks’ veteran forward Chandler Parsons reportedly suffered potentially career-ending injuries in a car crash caused by a drunk driver, according to the law firm representing Parsons (H/T ESPN). The Hawks placed Parsons in the NBA’s concussion protocol last week after suffering a concussion and whiplash in the crash, but his law firm, Morgan & Morgan, painted a much more severe picture on Monday.
According to the firm, Parsons “suffered multiple severe and permanent injuries including a traumatic brain injury, disc herniation and a torn labrum.”
“Chandler was seriously injured in this crash, which never should have occurred.”
“The at-fault driver created utter chaos on the roadway, needlessly endangering the lives countless motorists; he now stands charged with DUI, admitted drinking, had alcohol in the car with him, passed out after causing a three-car crash at 2:00PM on a Wednesday in a busy intersection, seriously injuring and potentially ending Mr. Parsons’ career as a pressional athlete.”
The 31-year old forward has had his fair share injuries over the years that have significantly impacted his ability to live up to his four-year, $94.8 million deal. Parsons appeared in just five games for the Hawks this season.
According to Morgan & Morgan, his ability to return to play is unclear.
Thanks to some phenomenal play from the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers, both teams are now in the Super Bowl which will take place on February 2nd in Miami. These two teams are truly the best in the NFL and fans can’t wait to see who comes away with the big win. There are plenty big festivities planned including the halftime shoe and National Anthem. This year, the halftime show is being performed by Demi Lovato who is making a comeback following her overdose in 2018.
There are plenty musicians who would love to be in Lovato’s position, including Swae Lee Rae Sremmurd. During a recent interview with TMZ, Swae Lee admitted that he would love to sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl. Of course, he’ll have to wait until next year if he wants to do it.
Swae Lee certainly has the voice for the Star-Spangled Banner so we’d be excited to see this actually take place. Members the hip-hop community rarely get shine when it comes to National Anthems which means Swae Lee’s inclusion would be groundbreaking.
Let us know if you’d like to Swae Lee perform the anthem at the Super Bowl next year. Also, tell us who you think is going to win the big game.
In the wake of analysts from both and giving Spotify an underperform rating, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the company is in early talks to acquire a podcasting network called the Ringer.
With many in the industry projecting that podcasting will become the next big thing in streaming, Spotify has increasingly been putting resources into it. Their interest in the Ringer, which offers both sports and pop-culture programming, is the latest move in these efforts.
Founded in 2016 by former ESPN commentator Bill Simmons, the Ringer has been steadily growing its slate of podcasts. Reportedly, the company’s shows receive more than 100 million downloads monthly. In 2018, they further generated more than $15 million in revenue, and according to the Wall Street Journal, they are already profitable.
If Spotify does in fact buy the Ringer, it will not be the first time that the two companies have worked together.
They also cooperated on a podcast that was hosted by Simmons himself. Entitled The Hottest Take, the show has been available exclusively on Spotify.
As the acquisition talks are still in the early stage, there are scant details at the moment about how the Ringer would function post-acquisition. For example, it is not known whether the company’s existing podcasts would at once become exclusive to Spotify or if the acquisition would only affect future podcasts.
Either way, Spotify’s competitors in the market, such as Apple, can only be concerned with deals like this. It may even drive them to make their own acquisitions, which could lead to a frenzy of new investment in podcasting.
Just last year, Spotify spent more than $400 million to purchase a trio of podcast companies.
It should be noted, though, that the report also indicated that a deal between Spotify and the Ringer is not imminent and that talks “may not result in a deal.”
In the clip below, it looks as though Sebastian is trying to teach A.E. some moves but it turns out that A.E. is really trying to teach Sebastian. The dancing turns into some harmless back and forth as Sebastian tries to square up with A.E.
Kanye West and Adidas reportedly entered the new year with nine different Yeezy Boost 350 V2s in the stash, and it looks like there will be much more than that when it’s all said and done. In addition to the “Earth” Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 and colorways such as “Flax” and Linen,” sneaker source Yeezy Mafia reports that there are also “Marsh” and “Sulfur” iterations in the works.
Official images both colorways have not yet been revealed but you can get a good idea what to expect from the first look shown below.
According to Yeezy Mafia, both the “Marsh” and “Sulfur” Yeezy Boost 350 V2s come equipped with a “sandstone-yellow” primeknit, which looks a lot like the aforementioned “Flax” and Linen” color schemes. The “Marsh” style features a matching yellow midsole, a brown sockliner and a grey outsole, while the “Sulfur” colorway opts for a gum outsole beneath the yellow midsole.
Both kicks are also highlighted by the familiar semi-translucent stripe that streaks across the knit upper. The “Marsh” colorway lacks the pull tab on the heel, but other than that it appears as though these sneakers are very similar in style.
Aaron Hernandez has been back in the news as late thanks to the latest Netflix documentary centered around his life titled Killer Inside: The Mind Of Aaron Hernandez. The documentary does a deep dive into his background and some the people he used to associate with. Of course, one those people was his fiancée Shayanna Jenkins.

I’m sure you will understand how imperative it is to take some time away from social media,” Jenkins wrote.

David Lynch is known for popular series such as Twin Peaks, DumbLand, Hotel Room and more and now – completely out nowhere – the famed filmmaker has dropped f a short, 17-minute film on Netflix called What Did Jack Do? The movie has arrived on what marks David’s 74th birthday and the synopsis that accompanies the short is simple and to the point: “In a locked-down train station, a homicide detective conducts an interview with a tormented monkey.”

The movie sees David as he interrogates a small, suited monkey about a murder. The duo is seated in a small window-less room and has an unexpected amount humour to balance out the questionable investigation. The monkey – who can talk – is accredited as Jack Cruz but it’s unclear who really voices the little actor. Many have assumed that this project is the first a fruitful partnership with David and Netflix and BMD reports that the movie isn’t new at all, since it premiered in Paris in 2017.
We can’t confirm if more projects such as this latest short are on the way but for now, fans should stream the fering and let us know what they think.
UFC’s cash cow Conor McGregor is back in the mix following his impressive return to the octagon at UFC 246 this past weekend, where he defeated Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in under a minute. Even before McGregor’s TKO victory fight fans were giddy with excitement over who his next opponent could be, and the speculation has ramped up even more following the dominant performance.
However, according to UFC President Dana White, there is only one option: Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Although fans would love a Conor McGregor vs Jorge Masvidal ‘BMF’ title fight or the trilogy with Nate Diaz, White says the Khabib rematch is the right fight to make. As we know, their first clash at UFC 229 in October 2018 ended with a massive melee and some lengthy suspensions after Khabib submitted the Irish superstar.
Their feud has died down considerably since then, but there’s no doubt that both sides would pick up right where they left f.
“We’re looking at Hagler-Hearns,” White said, per ESPN. “We’re looking at like Ali-Foreman, Ali-Frazier. This is a massive fight with global appeal. It’s the fight you make, it’s the fight that makes sense. It’s for the 155-pound title.
“If Conor and Masvidal fight, neither one them even has a title. Although Conor does want his BMF title. He doesn’t have a world championship. So Khabib is the fight to make. It’s huge for Khabib’s legacy, too. If he beat Conor McGregor, then he beats Tony Ferguson, then he beats Conor McGregor again, I mean this is how this kid, when he retires, he’s 30-something-and-oh and he’s beaten all the best.”
Of course, this is assuming the undefeated Lightweight champion retains his title against Tony Ferguson at UFC 249 on April 18. Should that be the case, White believes the McGregor-Khabib rematch could set a UFC record for most pay-per-view buys, and even rival the McGregor-Mayweather boxing match in terms prit.
“Spent my night listening to some the greatest ever,” he wrote in the first eight Instagram Story posts where he showed love to a few artists he’s worked with in the past and some that are on his bucket list collaborators, apparently. Among them are Elzhi, Phonte, Dwele, Slum Village, MF Doom, The Roots, and Cody Chesnutt.
For those familiar with Drake’s ATF/October’s Very Own Blogspot days, the rapper has collaborated with several these artists in his early career. Not only has Drake called Phonte one his biggest influences but they also worked together on “Think Good Thoughts” alongside Elzhi. Dwele and Little Brothe also linked up with Drake on “Don’t You Have A Man.” He’s also sampled The Roots and Slum Village in some his recent work as well.
As for MF Doom, the rapper has previously paid homage to the masked MC in the past while sparking speculation a collab in the works. Although that’s never been confirmed, Drake did rap over “Accordion” with Nickelus F back in the day.
One Future‘s many baby mothers is doing just fine as she’s not battling any impending court dates or custody agreements. Joie Chavis (who is the mother Future’s son Hendrix) also shares a daughter with Bow Wow, who is eight-year-old Shai Moss. The young cutie proves to look a lot like her father but when it comes to her dance moves she seemingly got it from her mama.
Joie was recently up in the gym with her daughter by her side and their little workout turned out to be more an impromptu dance class. In the clip below, you can see the mother-daughter duo busting out a few dance moves to Justin Bieber‘s latest song “Yummy.”
“The cutest most perfect,” SZA commented on the clip, while Snoh Aalegra added, “So adorable.”
