Lizzy McAlpine has been bubbling in the indie–pop scene for the last few years. Named as an “up–and–coming vocalist” by the BBC, McAlpine found increasing success following her previous album, Give Me A Minute, which has nearly 100 million streams. The Philly native made her late–night television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last year and is also a rising TikTok star, with her biggest video—featuring an unreleased song—reaching nearly 2 million likes. But on her third studio album, five seconds flat, McAlpine brings folk–pop and storytelling to the forefront, allowing her to show off her potential to top 40–radio crossover.
Camila Cabello has always hovered between the A–list and B–list of pop singers. She debuted with the girl group Fifth Harmony via X Factor in 2012, creating hits like “Worth It” and “Work from Home,” but never really having household recognition unlike the similarly formed One Direction. Cabello left the group at its peak, and her first few solo singles didn’t quite latch on to the public, but “Havana” took over the world by storm, becoming her first number–one song as a solo artist. Her second album Romance was riddled with media gossip thanks to her relationship with Shawn Mendes, and it spawned the summer hits “Señorita” and “My Oh My.”
The award show that everyone loves to hate tried a new tactic this year: not sucking.
Remember that feeling of hearing your favorite song on the radio for the first time? That one song that everyone knows? Pop music has been around for quite some time, and it's been shapeshifting ever since its beginning.
The moment the backdrop showed the title card, “Dua Lipa Presents: Future Nostalgia in Stereocolor,” the audience at the Wells Fargo Center screamed in anticipation. The familiar synth intro of “Physical” began to loop, backed by a live band, as dancers came on the stage one by one. Then the lights turned on, with Dua Lipa at the center spotlight, decked out in a neon bodysuit. At that moment, the crowd went wild. Everyone stood up and jumped with pumped fists, and they wouldn’t be sitting down for the next hour and a half.
Honesty is the best policy, as the old adage goes. For Mitski Miyawaki, honesty is the only policy.
If one takes a trip to Vegas anytime soon, they will no doubt be bombarded with ads from casinos, restaurants, and attractions from the famous Las Vegas Strip. Among these ads, however, are included concert shows from a famous singer–turned–actress, a recently–divorced British hitmaker, and a newly–formed super duo. No longer are these residency shows filled with artists of the past—Britney Spears, Celine Dion, or Elton John, for instance—but instead include headliners at the height of their careers: Lady Gaga, Adele, Silk Sonic.
What does one do following a life–changing injury, caused by something you’ve been doing your whole life? For some, they might focus on their health and, hopefully, return to what they once loved. For others, they might see an opportunity to dive into something completely new.
Without a doubt, K–Pop is more omnipresent in pop culture than ever before. Peruse on Twitter and you will find millions of K–Pop fancams of all kinds. K–Pop fans may have even played a part in inflating attendance numbers for a rally for then–President Trump, leading to a mostly empty stadium. Considering all this and more, it’s safe to say that K–Pop has firmly entered the American public consciousness.
The Weeknd, born Abel Tesfaye, has had a great past two years. After Hours was one of the best–selling albums of 2020 and 2021, and spawned the number one greatest single of all time, “Blinding Lights.” Just last year, Tesfaye headlined the Super Bowl and released the follow–up single, “Save Your Tears,” a duet with Ariana Grande and one of the best–selling songs of 2021. It would be an understatement to say that the Canadian artist is at the top of his game, even if Grammy voters said otherwise.
There is great debate on Twitter about who the biggest girl group is right now. For some, it's the K–Pop giant BLACKPINK, who captivated the world following their 2019 Coachella set and 2020’s THE ALBUM. For others, it might be the British group Little Mix, who has had consistently solid showings with their past few albums and is arguably at the height of their fame.
Let me set the scene: It’s a November morning, and after a candy high, you get out of bed and head towards class. You stop by a coffee shop, in need of caffeine, and patiently wait in line for a peppermint mocha latte when you hear the speaker playing that oh–so–familiar song, with its diva vocals, jingling instrumental, and never–ending sense of Christmas joy.
On Oct. 29, JEON SOMI dropped XOXO, her debut album after two long years since she emerged on the scene with her first single, 2019's “Birthday.” This eight–track album has a mixture of up–tempo pop anthems to mid–tempo R&B–inspired love songs, yet SOMI struggles to find her voice throughout the album. On top of that, the record deals with themes of love, romance, and relationships, well–worn subjects in the music industry—but XOXO doesn't add anything particularly new.
When Ariana Grande was announced to replace Nick Jonas as a coach on The Voice, the entertainment industry freaked out. Riding off the success of the sister albums sweetener and thank u, next and her recent number one album positions, Grande, a two–time Grammy–winning artist with six Billboard Hot 100 hits under her belt, has been at her prime; so it came as a surprise that she would offer her services to The Voice. Although Grande’s decision to be a coach on The Voice was an odd one for her career–most stars on the show like Kelly Clarkson and John Legend are past their peak– it’s extra perplexing that she chose The Voice, a competition that by now is largely known for never realizing anyone’s stardom aspirations.
It’s midterm season again, and after months of virtual learning, we are adjusting back to in–person learning, but that also means in–person tests. Good–ole pencil and paper is making a comeback y’all. So when you’re getting the grind down with your next midterm, these are the songs you should play that will get you back into the zone.
If one mentions "Satan shoes" in conversation, there’s a good chance that you’d think of Lil Nas X’s inflammatory marketing tactic to promote “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name).” 666 pairs of these scandalous shoes were produced, leading to criticism from pastors, praise from the Church of Satan, and a Nike lawsuit, but it got the job done: “MONTERO” became the fledgling pop star's second number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100. He used the media attention it garnered to promote his third single “INDUSTRY BABY” with Jack Harlow, which peaked at number two.
