Welcome to Harry’s House: The third studio album from Harry Styles is here. Styles announced Harry’s House, his follow-up to 2019’s Fine Line, back in March with a brief teaser trailer. Lead single “As It Was” — which we crowned Song of the Week — followed shortly thereafter. Styles then premiered the cuts “Boyfriends” and “Late Night Talking” during his weekend one set at Coachella last month.

As Styles explained during an interview with Apple MusicL “[Hosono] had an album in the ’70s called Hosono’s House, and I spent that chunk in Japan; I heard that record and I was like, ‘I love that.

Paris Jackson Goes Grunge on New Single “lighthouse”: Stream

Paris Jackson has gone grunge with her latest solo single, “lighthouse.” “I can feel the lights go low/ But I don’t wanna let go now/ Maybe if I turn around, you’ll see me/ And what you used to be/ Your wave keeps crashing in a changeless sea/ And I can’t help but feel it’s drowning me/ No, I can’t breathe/ The oil’s burnt in the lighthouse, my ship wrecked on your teeth,” she snarls on the chorus over boisterous guitars. According to a press release, “lighthouse” was specifically inspired by Nirvana’s “Sliver.” The song serves as the lead single off the Hollywood progeny’s forthcoming as-yet-untitled EP, a follow-up to her three-song project the lost from earlier this year and her 2021 collaborations with Manchester Orchestra (“adagio”) and The Struts (“Low Key in Love”).

Can The Siesta Key Crew Behave At Madisson’s Wedding?

Madisson’s famous last pre-wedding words: “Nothing’s gonna happen at a wedding, right?” While the bride-to-be had high hopes that everyone “will be on their best behavior” during the big day, the groom wasn’t so sure during tonight’s Siesta Key. “I think Juliette likes drama,” Ish said. “She’s growing, but she also has toxic relationships that she can’t break away from.” That was certainly evident at Cara’s recent pool party (you know the one, it was on a Wednesday), which was a hot topic of discussion at Madisson’s lingerie-clad bachelorette bash: Jules was convinced that Jordana and Cara had invited Sam’s flavor of the week Meghan to “upset” her.

Rap Lyric Usage In Court Limited By New NY State Senate Bill

HipHopWired Featured Video Source: ANGELA WEISS / Getty A bill limiting rap lyrics being used in criminal trials against defendants in New York State is one step closer to becoming law thanks to the state’s senators.
