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.

America’s audacious star child, Miley Cyrus, has unfurled her first arm, SHE IS COMING, of her forthcoming, three-part EP series, SHE IS MILEY CYRUS.
Riding sidecar for Cyrus’s new EP is a wrecking ball of a guest roster.

Cyrus’s not-so-surreptitious lyric on the EP’s “Cattitude:” “I love you, Nicki, but I listen to Cardi.” incited quite a frenzy following her recent live performance of the song at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend. Miley attempted to clip the contention in an interview with Roman Kemp, speaking highly of both Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, to whom the lyric alludes.
“They’re both queens,” she announced on Capital Breakfast.
The trilogy consists of EP installments entitled, SHE IS COMING, SHE IS HERE, and SHE IS EVERYTHING. The newly arrived EP is Cyrus’s first multi-track release since Younger Now of 2017. The two remaining extended plays are due for release before 2019’s end.

Austin City Limits Music Festival has unleashed its 2019 lineup ahead of its two autumnal weekends: Oct. 4-6 and Oct. 11-13.
Since 2002, the festival has drawn music fans spanning all genres to Zilker Park for consecutive weekends of the industry’s top names. This year’s iteration boasts Guns n’ Roses, Mumford & Sons, Childish Gambino, The Cure, Cardi B (weekend one), Billie Eilish, Tame Impala, and Robyn (weekend two) as headliners. Electronic music fans will delight in lineup additions like GRiZ, RL Grime, Fisher, Hippie Sabotage, Kaytranada, Troyboi, Jai Wolf, and more.
Childish Gambino was forced to cancel his appearance at last year’s festival after a foot injury, so fans who were hoping to catch his performance in 2018 will delight in two performances at the festival’s 2019 edition.
The festival features eight different stages to cater to fans of rock, indie, country, folk, electronic, and hip-hop, so regardless of one’s musical persuasion, this lineup features something for everyone.
