Ariana Grande has “No Tears Left To Cry” on upcoming album “Sweetener”

By Jack Kubinec 

After spending two years away from releasing music, and performing on her Dangerous Woman Tour, Ariana Grande has officially released her debut single from her forthcoming album. No Tears Left To Cry is the jumpstart into her upcoming musical era.

Two weeks before its release, all of her friends and musical producers were seen wearing a grey crew neck, with the songs title directly across is, but in upside-down text. This sparked many rumors on what the single would entail. Due to the title, many people believed the single would be a soulful ballad that would showcase Grande’s growth over the past year of her life. Although the growth part is right, No Tears Left To Cry was the complete opposite. It’s a groovy smash hit that features a 90’s diva vibe, especially the verses preceding the chorus.

The night the song was released, the video was as well. It featured Grande in an alternate inception like universe, as the whole word was rotating upside-down. Ariana walks on walls and ceilings, before falling into an endless pit of string lights. She hangs off the side of buildings on the fire escape, as well as having a total dance break on the roof of a building, before jumping off.

She promoted the song on the Jimmy Fallon show, as she released tons of information on her upcoming album. It’s set release date is this summer, in August to be exact. The title she chose is Sweetener which describes bringing light into someone else’s life, or vise versa. It includes tracks such as Raindrops, The Light Is Coming, R.E.M., and God Is A Woman.

Aside from all the album hype, Grande is very excited about the new music. From the production on the era’s first video, to scheduling to perform the opening sequence at the Billboard Music Awards. Grande has always been very passionate about her music and is ready to promote her personal growth.

 

Post-Weinstein Universe

By Lindsey Diamond

Tensions in Hollywood are high as sexual assault allegations are more apparent than ever. In October 2017, Harvey Weinstein was first accused of sexual harassment by two actresses, Rose McGowan and Ashley Judd. Resulting in the sexual allegations, Weinstein was terminated from his company. Many other women built the confidence and came forward with their stories of harassment and assault regarding Weinstein. After the Weinstein scandal, above 50 workers in Hollywood have been terminated due to sexual misconduct accusations, such as Matt Lauer, Kevin Spacey, and Danny Masterson. Since then, many topics of discussions arose about women coming forward with assault, what punishment is appropriate for those who commit these crimes, and if one can still support an actor’s work without necessarily supporting the actor.

Justin Timberlake’s Super Bowl Halftime Show

By Jack Kubinec

Following the release of his fifth studio album Man of the Woods, Justin Timberlake took one of the biggest performances of his career at Super Bowl LII. He stepped out to perform a medley of his biggest hits, as everyone sang along. Although it had mixed reviews, overall the performance was good…keyword good. Although Justin is a phenomenal singer and dancer, his performance lacked something many people in the audience were waiting for, originality. All he did was sing and dance and walk through the crowd multiple times. This may of been because he was the follow up to Lady Gaga’s phenomenal halftime show, or even what he was wearing.

Taylor Swift declares herself dead on her new album “Reputation”

 By Jack Kubinec

After not releasing an album for three years, Taylor Swift made a striking entrance back into mainstream music. Reputation is no doubt the largest album release in 2017, selling 1.2 million copies in the US, and 2 million copies worldwide. This could be because of the symbolistic killing of her old self, representing herself a snake, and coming to her senses of her big reputation, but either way it created something different for Swift.
