Pop Smoke's First And Final Album Falls Between Two Worlds

It's been five months since Pop Smoke's death and just over a year since "Welcome to the Party," the first single of his debut mixtape, Meet the Woo, began snaking through the firmament. Then it was joined by the even more irresistible "Dior." That music remains an artifact of the New York summer — the songs that once soundtracked the city's revelry have now been refashioned for protest, which only further cements his growing legend. In the studio, though, these hits were what he was up against. YouTube The biggest critique of Pop's music, and the element that naysayers honed in on, was the homogeneity of his songs. Some wondered if he was a one-trick pony, skeptical that his voice could grow from its Canarsie roots to transcend the sonic signatures of Brooklyn drill, a spinoff of Chicago's homegrown subgenre, set to production inspired by the U.K.'s iteration of it and punched up with New York attitude. Before Pop, born Bashar Barakah Jackson, was shot and killed in a home invasion on Feb. 19, at the age of 20, he'd clearly set out to prove them wrong. Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon, his debut, arrives as a tribute and a sendoff, but also as a glimpse of the infinite. Many of the songs — Pop's contributions to them anyway — feel incomplete, like directions for the roads he'd intended to travel. Pop's deep, baritone snarl was his instrument, and affixed a soulful quality to the sinister sound of his drill. It exists here on songs like "Aim For The Moon" and "44 Bulldog," which are continuations of the music that made him so beloved. The former takes into account the success he was only beginning to see, and thus has a triumphant sheen to it; the latter is vintage villainy that mirrors his earliest releases. Often, though, his voice shapeshifts into softer, more silvery versions of itself. The syrupy hook of "For The Night" stands out from Pop's usual fare, and "Yea Yea" thrusts his menace against a decidedly genial backdrop, to striking effect. Sometimes he's singing more so than rapping; sometimes it's as if he's simply trying to find new ways to pull tones from his vocal cords. On "Gangstas," "The Woo" and "Mood Swings," he sounds scarily like 50 Cent (one of the features on "The Woo" and an executive producer of the album), who came to the brink of death and returned with a new voice.

Barbra Streisand gifts George Floyd’s 6-year-old daughter with Disney stock

Gianna Floyd, the 6-year-old daughter of George Floyd, is now a Disney shareholder, thanks to Barbra Streisand. On Saturday, the young girl thanked the singer for the gift with a post on her Instagram page, featuring a slideshow of photos displaying the letter and certificate she received in the mail. Streisand, 78, also sent Gianna two of her studio albums, My Name Is Barbra and Color Me Barbra. Bell Icon "Thank You @barbrastreisand for my package, I am now a Disney Stockholder thanks to you 🥰🥰🥰," Gianna's post read, alongside a photo of her smiling with her certificate. While the Walt Disney Company no longer gives shareholders discounts to its theme parks, the brand is known to return on investments, with shares doing well over the years. In a recent CNBC report, they calculated that an investment of $1,000 in Disney 10 years ago would be worth more than $4,600 as of February 2020 for a total return of around 370 percent. It is unclear how many shares Gianna received from Streisand.

August Alsina Stands By His "Truth" After Jada Pinkett Smith Denies Relationship.

August Alsina has spoken out after Jada Pinkett Smith denied his claim that Will Smith gave the two adults his "blessing" to be in a sexual relationship. He took to Instagram on Friday afternoon to discuss the he-said, she-said, all the while never mentioning Jada or her husband's name. In the long post he covered many topics and ideas, including tradition and perception, but in sum, August doubled down on what he says is "his truth." He wrote in part, "I get it; not only do i get it but I'm also sorry you feel that way, BUT, The only attack here is against the invisible walls of silent societal construct and 'code' we place upon each other & upon ourselves hidden behind the desires of others approval & acceptance." Alsina added that he thinks "Truth & Transparency makes us uncomfortable," but stated he "can't apologize for that." "My truth is MY truth, & its mine to own. There is no right or wrong here, it simply just IS," the "Nunya" artist explained.

NASCAR star Jimmie Johnson is sitting out the Brickyard 400 race this weekend after testing positive for coronavirus.

According to a statement released by NASCAR, Johnson is missing Sunday's race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway because of the diagnosis. "My first priority is the health and safety of my loved ones and my teammates," the 44-year-old said in a team release. "I've never missed a race in my Cup career, but I know it's going to be very hard to watch from the sidelines when I'm supposed to be out there competing. Although this situation is extremely disappointing, I'm going to come back ready to win races and put ourselves in playoff contention."

Jimmie was tested for the virus after his wife Chandra received a positive diagnosis, according to a NASCAR report. She reportedly experienced allergy-like symptoms, while her husband is asymptomatic.

Andre Harrell Dies: Hitmaking Music Entrepreneur And Executive For Several Record Labels Was 59

Andre Harrell, whose Uptown Records is considered one of the key bridges between hip-hop and R&B, died of heart failure Thursday night at his West Hollywood home. He was 59 and his death was confirmed by his former wife. Harrell was a key to the careers of Sean Combs, Mary J. Blige, Heavy D & The Boyz, and Jodeci, among many others. His label, Uptown Records, is remembered as one of the R&B giants of the 1990s, finding a niche as a home for artists who were sophisticated and smooth, yet retaining its street edge. Andre O’Neal Harrell was born in the Bronx on Sep. 26, 1960. He graduated from Charles Evans Hughes High School in 1978, and attended Baruch College and Lehman College. Harrell’s career started on the performing side. He was Dr. Jeckyll, half of the rap duo Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde, with high school friend Alonzo Brown. They had several hits, including Genius Rap in 1981 and A.M./P.M. in 1984. Foreshadowing his later influence, the duo wore suits and ties. After the act ended, Harrell worked for Rush Management, run by Def Jam’s Russell Simmons. Harrell rose to vice president and general manager, working with Run-DMC, LL Cool J and Whodini. In 1986, he sent on his own to found Uptown Records. He targeted an upscale audience that would appeal to the hip-hop street and the upwardly mobile young adults. The result was a label that rode the rising tide of hip-hop and managed to carve out a lucrative niche. It partnered with industry giant MCA in 1988 and became a bedrock of success in the golden age of CDs. Harrell hired Sean Combs as an intern in the early 1990s, bringing aboard another ambitious young man with an ear for talent. Although Combs was a hard worker, the two Alpha males clashed, and Harrell fired him in 1993. That inspired Combs to found Bad Boy Records, signing The Notorious B.I.G. as one of his first acts. The two later reconciled, and Harrell became a vice chairman of Combs’s Revolt. Harrell became chief executive officer of Motown in 1995, and remained there for two years. He also became a film producer, with Strictly Business and Honey on his resume. He was also an executive producer of the television police drama New York Undercover. Last year, BET announced it was partnering with Mr. Harrell on a mini-series about Uptown Records. Survivors include his son, Gianni Credle-Harrell; a brother, Greg; and his father. No memorial service has been announced.

Little Richard, a flamboyant architect of rock 'n' roll, is dead at 87

Little Richard, the screaming, preening, scene-stealing wild man of early rock 'n' roll with hits like "Tutti Frutti" and "Long Tall Sally," died Saturday at 87, Dick Alen, his former agent, confirmed to CNN. Alen said Little Richard died in Nashville with his brother and son by his side, and the cause of death is related to bone cancer. He called the star "one of the legends, the originators" and said Little Richard had "been ill for a good while."

The pioneer would have stood out in any era. But in the 1950s, when Little Richard came to prominence, he was like no other: a flamboyant, makeup-wearing, piano-playing black man who personified the "devil's music" to establishment guardians. Elvis Presley was one thing, but for all his pelvic thrusts and slicked-back, juvenile-delinquent hair, he was at heart a polite Southern boy who loved his daddy. Little Richard, though ... well, he may have come from a big Southern family himself, but he represented something else. "Richard opened the door. He brought the races together," said arranger H.B. Barnum in Charles White's 1984 biography "The Life and Times of Little Richard." "When I first went on the road, there were many segregated audiences. With Richard, although they still had the audiences segregated in the building, they were there TOGETHER. And most times before the end of the night, they would all be mixed together."

CMT Music Awards Pushed to October Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

The CMT Music Awards will be pushed from June 3 to Oct. 14 because of the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic, the network announced Friday

Our top priority this last month has been rebuilding our hometown of Nashville following the tornado and ensuring the safety of our fans, employees, artists and partners during the COVID-19 crisis," reads CMT's statement. "As we look forward to celebrating country music’s biggest stars together with our community and viewers, we will continue to follow the guidance of the CDC and local public health officials."

Earlier this month, CMT's senior vp of music strategy Leslie Fram said that while she was still having daily calls discussing the fan-voted country music awards show as if it was moving forward the situation was "fluid" and the company was closely monitoring the situation.

On Tuesday, the 2020 CMA Fest was canceled. The four-day live music event in Nashville hosted by the Country Music Association was set to begin the day after the CMT Awards. Fans can either request a refund or use their tickets for the 2021 event

Bill Withers, Who Sang ‘Lean on Me’ and ‘Ain’t No Sunshine,’ Dies at 81
A three-time Grammy Award winner, he had a string of much-covered hits in the 1970s but had not released an album since 1985.

Bill Withers, a onetime Navy aircraft mechanic who after teaching himself to play the guitar wrote some of the most memorable and often-covered songs of the 1970s, including “Lean on Me,” “Ain’t No Sunshine” and “Use Me,” died on Monday in Los Angeles. He was 81.

His death was announced in a statement from his family. His son, Todd, said he had heart problems.

Mr. Withers, who had an evocative, gritty R&B voice that could embody loss or hope, was in his 30s when he released his first album, “Just as I Am,” in 1971. It included “Ain’t No Sunshine,” a mournful lament (“Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone/And she’s always gone too long/Anytime she goes away”) that cracked the Billboard Top 10. Other hits followed, perhaps none better known than “Lean on Me,” an anthem of friendship and support that hit No. 1 in 1972 and has been repurposed countless times by a wide variety of artists.

Lady Gaga Delays ‘Chromatica,’ Reveals She’d Planned a Secret Coachella Set

Lady Gaga has announced on her social media that she is delaying her “Chromatica” album, previously set for April 10, indefinitely. Additionally, the posts reveal she had planned to do a secret set at the Coachella Festival, before that gathering was pushed back from April to October.

While noting that her April 30-May 11 shows at the MGM Park Theatre in Las Vegas had already been delayed, she added that she hopes her performances in Vegas later in May will proceed as scheduled.

“I wanted to tell you, that after a lot of deliberation, I’ve made the incredibly tough decision to postpone the release of ‘Chromatica.’ I will announce a new 2020 release date soon.

“This is such a hectic and scary time for all of us, and while I believe art is one of the strongest things we have to provide joy and healing to each other during times like this, it just doesn’t feel right to me to release this album with all that is going on during this global pandemic.

“Instead I prefer that we spend this time focusing on finding solutions. It’s important to me that the attention is on getting essential medical equipment to healthcare professionals, making sure ids who depend on public schools for meals get the assistance they need, and that we help those who will be financially impacted by this pandemic.”

As for scotched Coachella plans, which would have coincided neatly with her album release, Gaga said simply, “I had so many fun things planned for us to celebrate together… I had a secret Coachella set lined up, and a lot of other fun surprises, some of which I’m still planning to share with all of you very soon!…

“To my fans, I love you. I know you are disappointed. Probably angry and sad… I hope you can see that when the album does come out, I want us to be able to dance together, sweat together, hug and kiss each other, and make it the most bombastic celebration of all time And until that time comes, LET’S ALL STAY HOME!”

Taylor Swift Gives Back to a Few Lucky Fans Amid Coronavirus Crisis

Taylor Swift is putting up her own money to help people during the ongoing coronavirus crisis in a very direct and personal way.

The singer has reached out to several fans who are struggling financially amid the outbreak to lend a helping hand, in the form of several thousand dollars.

With the country largely shutting down in an effort to promote social distancing and slow the devastating spread of COVID-19, millions of people are finding themselves out of work and financially unstable.

One woman, a freelance photographer living in New York, took to Tumblr to share a plea for help, explaining that everything she lived for was at stake because she simply didn't have the resources.

"There are only two things that have consistently provided me with the will to live, two things that have been the reason why I get out of bed in the morning for ten years: freelance photography and living in New York," Holly Turner shared in an emotional post. "And both of those things are about to be stripped from me."

After sharing her Venmo and PayPal links in the hope that anyone might be able to spare some money to keep her dreams alive, Turner was shocked when Swift personally sent her $3,000.

"Holly, You've always been there for me. I want to be there for you right now," Swift wrote in a message along with the donation. "I hope this helps. Love, Taylor."

"I made a post on tumblr about how i was scared i wouldn't be able to stay living in NYC because of what corona has done to the music industry. @taylorswift13 literally single-handedly saved my ability to stay here," Turner wrote, in gratitude. "I cannot even believe my eyes right now."
