Selena Gomez just teased her newest song on her Instagram story. No, this is not a drill.
Set over a black and white video of half her face with an "x" over her mouth (alluding to the cover art, perhaps?) the lyrics we can hear are as follows: "I had a dream, we were back to 17, summer nights... never growing up." The sound is unmistakably Selena's, as it's a mid-tempo, pop-inspired but ultimately soulful. It's akin to some of her more recent tracks (think "Good For You," in particular) but of course, the melody is all new. She also posted an Instagram that very sneakily tags the DJ Kygo in the corner, hinting that maybe this is a collaboration. We don't mean to jump to conclusions, but a teased song usually means a forthcoming album eventually. (Yes, that's right. New Selena! It's coming!)
On Wednesday, Beyoncé announced she is pregnant with TWINS by sharing a baby bump pic from a gorgeous photo shoot to Instagram!
The songstress captioned the beautiful shot:
"We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. - The Carters"
Guess who might be engaged! The hottest young couple in Hollywood might have got their relationship to the next level. It’s been know that these two’s relationship is serious and it is going strong. However, leveling up from in a relationship to engaged is definitely the real deal! Gigi Hadid has been seen in New York City, and guess what was she wearing on her left finger? A gold band! Could this be her engagement ring, going simple and humble Gigi? We sure wish it is!
On a very casual Monday, Gigi Hadid was out in New York City, and how would that gold band ring on her left finger now stick out when marching the Big Apple. Gigi Hadid was apparently dressed in work out outfit with no accessories and definitely no jewelries but her gold ring. Doesn’t it sound like an engaged lady behavior much?
However, why would a non-engaged young lady act like one? It’s shocking but sad to say the following: Zayn did propose, but Gigi said no!!! Young pop star popped the question during the holidays, and his lady lover refused his offer. A source gives more details about what happened: “Zayn recently asked Gigi to marry him. She’s only 21 and doesn’t feel ready to tie the knot, so she turned him down,”
Justin Bieber thinks Selena Gomez’s romance with The Weeknd is a cynical plot designed to boost record sales
The ‘Sorry’ hitmaker dated Selena on and off from 2010, and is refusing to believe that his former love interest is really dating The Weeknd, who has been working on new music with the 24-year-old beauty.
Justin, 22, thinks the supposed relationship is a strategic move on the part of Selena, who has previously dated Nick Jonas, Zedd and himself in the weeks before releasing new material, according to TMZ.
Meanwhile, Selena is reportedly unconcerned about upsetting Bella Hadid with her relationship with The Weeknd.
Selena Gomez & The Weeknd
The ‘Heart Wants What It Wants’ hitmaker was seen kissing the ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ singer earlier this month, prompting his ex-girlfriend Bella to unfollow her on Instagram.
One source said: “Selena was always the girl who stayed away from a lot of the Taylor Swift crew, except for Taylor. She preferred to be one-on-one with Taylor and didn’t like being a part of the whole squad thing.”
It's been nearly four years since Bruno Mars treated his Hooligans with a new album, after 2012's Unorthodox Jukebox topped charts the world over.
In fact, both his debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans and its follow-up have topped six million sales worldwide, making him one of the best-selling male artists in music right now.
But where's the new music, Bruno? Yeah, 'Uptown Funk' with Mark Ronson was a deserved global smash last year, but we've been waiting way too long for album number three. Here's everything we know about the anticipated collection.
We can all agree we've already waited long enough for Bruno's new album, but it we have a little while longer yet.
The Hawaiian singer was initially planning to release the collection back in March, but joining Coldplay and Beyoncé for the Super Bowl halftime show in February pushed everything back. Bruno confirmed that he was basically still working on new music back in January.
Earlier this year, however, Bruno's father Pete Hernandez told his local paper the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that we can expect the star's new music by the autumn. "Bruno has seven great new songs – I've heard 'em – but the album should now be released in September or October, to qualify for next year's Grammy Awards," he said.
Lo and behold, good old Pete was totally on the money, as Bruno Mars released his new single'24k Magic' on October 7. It flew in on Bruno's private jet for the funkiest, slickest visual of his career. Only Bruno could pull off some these outfits.
So what about that album then? Well it's also called 24k Magic and it will be released onNovember 18. We have little info on the tracklist as of yet, but we do know Bruno will be promoting it with a huge performance on Saturday Night Live on October 15.
It'll come as no surprise that Bruno Mars has been in the studio with Mark Ronson and Jeff Bhasker. 'Uptown Funk' won two Grammy Awards and was the biggest song of 2015. That being said, Mars was only in the studio with them before 'Uptown Funk' came out, so it's not known if they worked on any other songs together.
Digital Spy did ask Ronson last summer if he'd been working with Bruno again, but at that point he said he hadn't. Of course, that could've changed by now. Surely after the success of 'Uptown Funk', Bruno would want to sprinkle some of that groovy goodness across his own record?
Lead single '24K Magic' definitely hints at Bruno continuing with his current groove, owning those dance moves and coming back with party tune after party tune. There's certainly a sense this will be a throwback record. Only cementing that further is his new funk-driven track 'Chunky', which he performed for the first time on Saturday Night Live.
Saying that, the most surprising of his collaborations comes in the form of electronic producer Skrillex. "I'm actually working with Bruno Mars right now," he told Billboard. "I'm not going to give specifics of what it sounds like, but what we're doing is so f**king different, awesome and next level and sounds like nothing else that's happened before." Unfortunately, Bruno later confirmed that the track they worked on isn't finished and so it won't be on the new album. However, that's not to say they won't put it out at a later date.
That being said, Bruno's sound engineer Charles Moniz stirred up plenty of excitement with his comments on the record. "I think it's going to be the next movement of Bruno," he said,hinting that the music is largely upbeat by adding that the atmosphere in the studio is "about having fun. It's about everyone coming together and having a good time. That's the thing: when the vibe's right and everyone's having fun, that's when the best music comes out."
Speaking about the record himself, Bruno promised us that as soon as we start playing 24k Magic, we won't want to stop. "On this album, I really focused on giving you one continuous wave," he told 97.1 AMP Radio's Carson Daly. "As soon as you put this album on, you're going to be taken for a ride. This album is the best album I've ever done. Out of all three of them, this is the one!"
As for any hopes for some duets, that's completely out of the question. "I only have 9 tracks on the record," Bruno confirmed. "I don't have any features." This is going to be pure Bruno from start to finish.
Considering the 30-year-old played a total of 154 headline shows as part of his worldwide Moonshine Jungle Tour between 2013-2014, taking a mammoth $156.4 million at the box office, we think it's safe to assume he'll be right back out on the road again soon.
But when will it happen? Well considering Bruno is releasing his new album in November, we're expecting dates for the tour to be announced within weeks of its release. Judging by the average scheduling of these things, it's highly likely Bruno will be kicking off his third world tour in the first half of 2017. "Just get ready," he told fans when asked about the impending show. "It's going to be something you've never seen before." Polish up those gold chains, people.
Around January 26, sources began saying that Rihanna's new album was coming in the next couple of days. When it possibly leaked on Tidal on the 27th, the rumors were kicked into overdrive that it might come as early as the following Friday on January 29. It's not clear whether the unintentional leak spurred an early release, but late on January 27 Rihanna released the album in full via Tidal for users to stream and to download for free with a code .
Rihanna's new album Anti is finally here, and she's giving it away for free. But was it worth the wait?
