Coachella 2019 rumors ensue, with suspected headliners: Childish Gambino, Justin Timberlake, and Kanye WestCoachella 1

Unsurprisingly, over six months in advance, the eternally trendy Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is already garnering a swarm of rumors regarding its 2019 headliners.

The scoop comes from HITS Daily Double, as the outlet recently reported via anonymous, “informed sources” that the imminent installment (set to run April 12-21) will house headlining performances from Childish Gambino (Friday), Justin Timberlake (Saturday), and Kanye West (Sunday). The artists themselves have yet to comment on these claims.

Coachella 2018 proved particularly eventful, with notable performances from both Beyonce, who brought with her over 100 dancers onstage during her headlining set—in addition to a cameo from husband Jay-Z—and Whethan, the 19-year-old Boy Wonder of EDM, who personally flew out the yodeling boy internet sensation for a special guest performance, which quickly went viral on a sundry of social media channels.

Lil Wayne announced to replace Childish Gambino at Austin City Limits festivalLil Wayne Carter V

After adding Phoenix to join its lineup just yesterday, the Austin City Limits festival announced today that indeed Lil Wayne will join Justice, Metallica, Travis Scott and Arctic Monkeys to headline the festival this weekend.

Wayne’s arrival comes immediately after the announcement that, due to a newly obtained foot injury, Childish Gambino needed to postpone the remaining dates on his This Is America tour until later in the year — effectively cancelling his top billing at the Texas festival. It is a timely arrival for Lil Wayne, as the rapper celebrates his 36th birthday with the release of his long-awaited Tha Carter V album drop on the same day.

Fans of Childish Gambino are in the midst of getting what the artist has said will be the project’s last and final tour — but there apparently could be new music coming down the pipe from the “Redbone” hitmaker. During a recent tour stop in New York’s Madison Square Garden, Gambino performed a massive unreleased track for the lucky audience. “This is some new shit I’ve been working on,” the artist told the crowd before launching into the soulful four-to-the-floor ID.

Despite Donald Glover‘s earlier promises to eventually retire the Childish Gambino project, there’s now another unreleased song to add to a growing stack of future heat that reportedly includes an entire joint album with Chance The Rapper. Until Glover decides to discontinue the venture, fans will no doubt be waiting to gobble up the latest and greatest from his musical alter ego.

Watch Stephen Colbert break down Chance the Rapper’s ‘Favorite Song’

Watch Stephen Colbert break down Chance the Rapper’s ‘Favorite Song’Stephen Colbert Chance The Rapper

Stephen Colbert recently broke down the rhyme and rhythm scheme of a Chance the Rapper verse for Rolling Stone. Being a Lord of the Rings enthusiast, Colbert compares Chance the Rapper’s “Favorite Song” featuring Childish Gambino, with JRR Tolkien, as well as the Victorian-era theatrical team Gilbert and Sullivan. With Colbert’s authentic enthusiasm and clear explanation of thought, the video gracefully places Chance’s poetic artistry with some of the most notable storytellers in history.

The specific verse the Late Night host discussed is “Bang bang bang [sic], skeet skeet skeet // She do that thing for three retweets // the album feel like ’92, now that take ball ‘fore he three-peat // Chance on acid, cruising on that LSD // Asked Joseph about my deal; he turned and said, ‘Hell yeah, let’s eat!’”

Colbert discusses the rare staccato flow and internal rhyme scheme, racking his brain for where he’s heard that before. “I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General,” from Gilbert and Sullivan’s 1879 opera The Pirates of Penzance was the first comparison. The second was the rare rhyme and rhythm scheme that influenced the rest of  Tolkien’s iconic Lord of the Rings series.
