To say Ed Sheeran has become one of the most successful artists in the streaming era in an understatement. He is the number one most streamed artist on Spotify with over 61 million listeners a month, with the number one most streamed song, “Shape Of You,”—the only song with over 2 billion plays. Sheeran has four songs with over a billion plays, and from the looks of the roster on his upcoming No. 6 LP, he’s rearing for more.

Featured collaborations on the newly revealed tracklist include Skrillex, Khalid, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Stormzy, Yebba, Travis Scott, Eminem, 50 Cent, Young Thug, JHUS, Ella Mai, Paulo Londra, H.E.R., Meek Mill, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Bruno Mars, and Chris Stapleton. This is also leaving out the two singles on the album that have already been released—”Cross Me” featuring Chance The Rapper & PnB Rock and number 2 Billboard chart-topper “I Don’t Care” with Justin Bieber. In an eclectic variety of collaborators, the British singer/songwriter has blanketed his album with a smorgasbord of artists in almost every pop genre.

The album, No. 6, is set for release July 12.

What Diplo wants, Diplo gets, specifically the first-ever Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival. If the length of the name tells us anything, it’s that the seminal Mad Decent festival is sure to be one hell of a doozy, as the newly minted event’s lineup confirms. Billie Eilish, G-Eazy, Major Lazer, and Miguel head the festival, which will manifest as a fine balance of highly sought electronic acts and equally illustrious hip-hop artists alike.

A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Kodak Black, Pusha T, and J.I.D. round out the festival’s hip-hop inclusions, while Dillon Francis, RL Grime, Zeds Dead, REZZ, Ekali, Troyboi, Baauer, and Whethan comprise some of Diplo’s dance picks. The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival also casts glances at talent from genres beyond the electronic and hip-hop spheres, to draw the stylistically malleable Quinn XCII, R&B’s Pink Sweat$ and Jesse Reyez, and Finneas out.

Needless to say, the inaugural Mad Decent Block Party branded affair is a must attend for many reasons, primary of which—at least, for dance music fans—is Major Lazer’s occupancy of a headlining slot. Diplo previously intimated that Major Lazer will likely dissolve after delivering their fourth—and probably final—album together, in a January interview with Complex. As such, The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival might well be one of Major Lazer’s last large-scale performances.

The unveiling of The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival’s lineup comes just after Mad Decent Block Party Festival tweeted out a video with a particularly suggestive caption on April 5: “IT’S HAPPENING.” While the far from subtle warning altered past attendees of Diplo’s multi-city Mad Decent Block Party party series to be ready for a followup announcement regarding the fate of a MDBP festival, Diplo’s presentation of a full-fledged lineup has presumably taken many by surprise, given how quickly it succeeded the preliminary Twitter hint that a MDBP festival was in the works.

The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party will descend upon Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts for two days of fun, come July 20-21. Tickets to the festival will go on sale at 10 a.m. EST April 12.

A-Boogie-Wit-Da-HoodieLast month, the Bronx sing-rapper A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie set a deeply dubious Billboard chart record.

A-Boogie-Wit-Da-HoodieWe are deep into the identity-crisis era of New York rap, and something interesting has started to happen. For many years, after New York found that rap’s focus had wandered elsewhere, the city got surly and defiant. How could snap music/ringtone rap/trap/drill/jerk/whatever else be so commercially dominant? Didn’t real rap mean anything anymore? Then, around … More »
