Lorde Released Her First Song In 2 Years And It’s The Perfect Breakup Anthem

It’s been two years since Lorde released any new singles, but now, finally, the wait is over. After much build-up and anticipation from the 20-year-old singer on Twitter, her new single “Green Light” was released along with a music video on Thursday. It’s the first song from her long-awaited second album. Her first album, Pure Heroine, came out four years ago in 2013. Remember “Royals,” you guys? Those were good times. (She also helped out on “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1” soundtrack, but I’m not counting that.) In addition to dropping…

Ed Sheeran’s New Irish Music Inspired Album Reminds Us Of One ’90s Classic

Ed Sheeran’s long awaited album, Divide, has finally been released, and hopeless romantics can’t get enough. As one of those hopeless romantics, his album was part of my required listening for today. “Shape of You” is incredibly sexy and tells the tale of meeting a girl and taking advantage of an all you can eat buffet.

Here’s The Problem With Chance The Rapper’s $1 Million Donation To Chicago

You can make an argument that Chance the Rapper’s generous donation to Chicago public schools is more impressive than it’s getting credit for. Just think about it. It’d be one thing if this $1 million gift came from Jay Z and Beyoncé, who, together, are probably worth over $1 billion (which explains the insane house they’re rumored to have just purchased). Beyonce's new house is literally bigger than my neighbourhood.pic.twitter.com/sLZft8m5aS — Linn (@BiebsArmani) March 4, 2017 It’s a whole different ball game when it comes from a guy like Chance. Yeah,…

Why Adele Praising Beyoncé At The Grammys Was Actually Awkward As Hell

The internet was filled with heart eyes after Adele turned her Grammy acceptance speech into a tribute to Beyoncé. For starters, it showed a great amount of selflessness for Adele to make her moment someone else’s. She also seemed tuned in to how Beyoncé’s work played a key role in empowering black women, which is always a point worth highlighting. Adele also said what The Grammys should have recognized on its own. There’s probably no way Adele’s 25 should have beaten Beyoncé’s Lemonade for Album of the Year.  The fact that Adele said all this while fighting back tears and…
