Adele Says She Has ‘No Idea’ When Her Album Is Coming

Ever since the 2015 release of Adele‘s 25, fans have been itching for another album by the powerhouse vocalist. However, it’s unclear when that day will be. On Friday (Aug. 14), the singer took to Instagram to share a book she just read, Untamed: Stop Pleasing, Start Living by Glennon Doyle. “If you’re ready – this book will shake your brain and make your soul scream,” she captioned the photo. “I am so ready for myself after reading this book! It’s as if I just flew into my body for the very first time. Whew!” Some fans in the comments were disappointed, initially thinking that the post was a new song announcement. “Adele where’s the album?” one fan commented with a laughing face emoji. To their surprise, the Grammy-winn...

Banali, who has been battling stage IV pancreatic cancer for the past 16 months, offered an update on his health status in a social media post earlier tonight (Friday, August 14).

RZA Remixes The Jingle Played By Ice Cream Trucks Because Of Its Racist Origins [Video]

Source: GOOD HUMOR / Good Humor As the world continues to get woke we find that some of our fondest memories are now tarnished by the hand of bigotry. One producer is changing the narrative by adding his touch to it. For those not in the know, the instrumental jingle that is synonymous with ice cream trucks has some very hurtful origins. “Turkey in the Straw” was originally performed at minstrel shows by actors wearing blackface—specifically by a character named “Zip Coon.” It was then renamed “N*gger Love a Watermelon”—yes you read that correctly. While the RZA hasn’t made a big splash since his iconic battle versus DJ Premier he still has the magic touch when it comes to the arts. The Abbot has been enlisted by one of America’s most beloved brands to update a modern classic. Good Hu...

Machine Gun Kelly “Concert For Aliens,” Blueface ft. Trucarr “Outside (Remix)” & More | Daily Visuals 8.14.20

Source: Power 105 / Power 105 A few years ago when Machine Gun Kelly shocked the rap world and released a devastating diss track towards Eminem, it seemed like the Cleveland rapper was ready to establish himself as one of the hardest white rappers to ever step into the game.

In his latest visuals to “Concert For Aliens,” Machine Gun Kelly continues to roll with the rock-pop sound and goes from a game show host to a music performer for a crowd filled of Aliens. This the same man that handed Slim Shady the first L of his rap career, y’all. Back in the rap game, Blueface looks to have some fun in the sun and for his Trucarr assisted clip to “Outside (Remix)” take a gang of thi...
