While the Jonas Borthers are making the rounds with their Karol G-assisted track X, fans have picked the next collaboration that the band should consider teaming up with. In a recent poll, Shakira took the top spot, followed by Bad Bunny and J Balvin as another fan favorite. The bilingual X, which fuses pop with Latin rhythms, is the group’s second collaborative effort with a Latin act.
When Sam Fischer moved to LA to pursue a career in music full-time, he would lie to his mom about how it was going, saying that everything was good, he had opportunities. The truth was he was sleeping on couches and working as a delivery boy. But now thanks to his emotional and all too relatable hit This City, which is about how LA nearly broke his spirit, Fischer is enjoying a career high, even if he has to experience it all from home, due to the pandemic. Now he’s ready to prove he’s not just a TikTok viral moment and is eager to share an upcoming project that has been in the works for the last four years. Took him 10 years to become an overnight success but it was worth the wait and we’re have to wait a little longer for the new material. That upcoming project is slated for release sometime this summer.
Hundreds of members of the music community signed an open letter calling for New York state to repeal statute 50-A, the state law that shields police officers’ personnel and disciplinary records from public view. The decades-old law has long allowed misconduct and records of police officers to remain hidden from public view and its dissolution has become a key piece of calls for police reform in the weeks since the murder of George Floyd. The letter has been signed by more than 300 artists including Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato and many many more. It’s off to the New York Governor, Senate Majority Leader and Assembly Speaker.
Fall Out Boy committed to supporting the Black Lives Matter movement in a major way by pledging a $100,000 donation. Taken out of the Fall Out Boy Fund, they redirected this sum amount to National Bail Out and Black Visions Collective. The band said when you discover rot deep within your house you don’t just paint over it. You dismantle it and rebuild a better house. We realize this is a marathon not a sprint and plan to continue and expand our support.
