Miami’s Patrick Cybulski—better known by his stage name, k?d—has been touring the globe in 2019, with stops in Germany, China, Spain, and more.

Aquarius, the major-label debut album that followed, generated rave reviews. Despite the trendy Mustardwave pops and snaps … More »

The seven-man ensemble brings together members of several prominent K-pop groups: EXO’s Baekhyun and Kai, NCT 127’s Taeyong and Mark, WayV’s Lucas and Ten, and SHINee’s Taemin. That makes them a supergroup, and they flexed their commercial superpowers this week by landing their debut EP SuperM: The 1st Mini … More »

“I have taken out my Invisalign, and this is the album!” Billie Eilish announces at the outset of her debut album.
