Joseph Tyler is going to be a father! The 30 year old Twenty One Pilots frontman made the exciting announcement on stage during the duo’s performance at Lollapalooza Berlin Saturday. Tyler told the crowd I know I said I’m bringing a couple people onstage and that’s two as he showed off his wife’s baby bump. The touching moment was caught on video by numerous festival-goers. This will be Tyler and wife Jenna’s first child together. The two married in March 2015.

Steve Aoki’s touch knows no limits. The producer has worked with everyone from Adam Lambert to BTS throughout his career and expanded his repertoire even further into the pop realm recently. His latest collab is with The Backstreet Boys on a track called Let it Be Me. Steve said collaborating with this group that he’s been listening to since he was a kid was such a memorable moment. This song has a beautiful message, overcoming challenges when you love someone and love will always win in the end. Both Steve and the boys think a lot of people will relate to it.

With Lizzo notching her first-ever Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit, Truth Hurts, the love has been pouring in from across the music world. One of the artists singing her praises is Nicki Minaj, who congratulated Lizzo on her latest achievement with a message on Twitter. She called Lizzo extremely multi-talented. Lizzo thanked her by scream tweeting THANK U, QUEEN! Lizzo make history for becoming just the sixth female rapper to top the Hot 100.

Miley Cyrus unveiled the music video for her power ballad Slide Away last Friday. The emotionally-charged video opens with Miley underwater in a slinky gold dress and matching accessories as she processes moving on in the wake of her split with husband Liam Hemsworth. Several scenes from the video each those from the clip for her hit We Can’t Stop—the hard partying extras—except this time, Miley is full detached from what’s happening around her.

Alessia Cara couldn’t be more grateful to have been a part of Shawn Mendes’ recent global arena tour, which played its final show last week. After the show, Cara took to social media to thank her fellow Canadian pop star for the chance to perform alongside him on 70-plus concert dates. Alessia said his heart is as potent as his ambition and I learned so much from him these last few months, both on and off stage. Performing for another artist’s fans isn’t easy, but Cara said Mendes’ audience welcome her with open arms and genuine love. She won’t be forgetting this tour for a very long time.

Longing for a lover? It’s okay, just dance it out. At least that’s how OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder copes with being lovelorn in the video for the group’s latest release, Wanted. The band dropped the track Friday, which actually sees Tedder telling the tale of a woman’s struggle to find love. Though OneRepublic is clearly telling someone else’s story, Wanted is a sentiment that anyone can relate to. This is OneRepublic’s second single of 2019, following the racing track Rescue Me.
