Everything’s coming up Travis Scott. This week, four months after it came out, Scott’s album Astroworld returned to the top of the Billboard 200 for a third week.

When the world met Alessia Caracciolo three years ago, she was the awkward teenager enduring a house party where she did not belong: “Somewhere in the corner under clouds of marijuana/ With this boy who’s hollering, I can hardly hear/ Over this music I don’t listen to.” Over the same Bond-worthy Isaac Hayes … More »
Ellie Goulding has closed a multi-year hiatus from the release ring via the Diplo and Swae Lee collaboration, “Close To Me.” Although the sharp, signature soprano tone of Goulding’s voice might have initially appeared an inconceivable pairing with the silk of Swae Lee’s often hip-hop-leaning vocals and verses — let alone Diplo’s electronic groundings — “Close To Me” proved a harmonious showing, despite the seeming eclecticism of its artists. Goulding’s first original effort since 2016, and an introduction to what remains yet to come on her fourth studio album, currently in the works, “Close to Me” now receives a visual.
Filmed in Budapest, Hungary, “Close To Me” pans from one hi-def shot of the Hungary landscape to another, to provide a luxe backdrop to Goulding and Lee’s verbal deliveries. The production is one of grandeur, both in terms of the sprawling majesty of the architecture that figures in the video, and Goulding’s styling. The British singer dons a number of arresting fashion statements that only further focalize the breathy vocalist as one of the video’s many aesthetic gems.
“Close To Me” is quite weighty, in that Goulding, while avid fans will remember her musing nostalgia over Kygo‘s semi-recent “First Time,” has not released a single of her own in years–three to be exact. Diplo, on the other hand, has been relentlessly doling out releases in and outside of the Major Lazer moniker, with his recent posthumous collaboration with XXXTENTACION and the ever-auspicious, Skrillex, receiving further support from the aforementioned Rae Sremmurd, in fact.
“Close To Me,” with its broody acoustic plucks and fusing of Goulding’s enrapturing entreats with Lee’s breezy rhymes, is technically Goulding and Diplo’s second collaboration to date. The UK singer-songwriter paired with Major Lazer in 2015 for the radio-ravaging and aptly-named “Powerful.” Whether this latest venture is simply a solitary effort, or a harbinger of a yet-to-be-named multi-work project, Goulding fans are surely smitten seeing her back in singing saddles.
If you remember any scene from the trailer for Bradley Cooper’s new A Star Is Born remake, it is almost certainly the one in which Cooper’s character, declining roots-rock god Jackson Maine, calls from a car window to Lady Gaga’s aspiring singer, identified only as Ally. It’s a scene that’s appeared in all four(!) versions … More »

Who knows how many centuries the fortune under the eastern slope of Mount Davidson went untapped before the Grosh brothers happened upon it. The Pennsylvanian preacher’s sons had become seasoned prospectors during the gold rush years of the mid-19th century, and that experience served them well in Nevada’s Virginia Range southeast of Reno, where in … More »
