One of the best Onion articles ever is headlined like so: “Marilyn Manson Now Going Door-To-Door Trying To Shock People.” This was early 2001, more than a year after Manson became a scapegoat for the Columbine massacre and still several months ahead of 9/11. Despite a disputed election that introduced everyone to the … More »

It’s unclear whether Young Thug ever released an official debut album. Way back in 2013 he was teasing HY!£UN35, a project that has yet to materialize and probably never will. Since then he’s delivered a bounty of full-length projects, including massively influential titles like 2014’s Rich Gang: Tha Tour Part 1 alongside Rich … More »

“Pulling a Beyoncé” has always been a fairly elastic concept. Even when the phrase came into vogue at the end of 2013, when she surprise-released her self-titled visual album and, in her own words, “changed the game with that digital drop,” people were crediting her with both the surprise album trend … More »
A few months ago, Ed Sheeran announced the impending release of No.6 Collaborations Project, his all-collabs album. In the lead-up, he’s teamed up with some big names on new songs — Justin Bieber on “I Don’t Care,” Chance The Rapper and PnB Rock on “Cross Me,” Bruno Mars and … More »

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.
Less than a month removed from his Jeremih-assisted house number “Let Me Take You,” Whethan is promptly advancing towards his fourth release since January. The 20-year-old producer has a proven track record for working his magic on high-profile releases throughout his young career with his genre-bending approach and he’s aiming to do it once more, stepping up to rework Travis Scott and Metro Boomin’s late 2018 collaboration, “Overdue.”
Withholding a sufficient number of elements from the two rappers’ original output, Whethan provides the track with a well-deserved, polished electronic glamour. As far as expectations from the burgeoning superstar go, Whethan generally keeps listeners on their toes as he continues to experiment with invigorating sounds. One of the highlights of the new remix is Whethan’s elegantly-produced snare over a glitch-coated Travis Scott chorus. With a complete schedule of festival appearances over the coming weeks, the interval between the remix and the producer’s next offering will most likely not be long as Whethan continues to build upon an already impressive 2019 rap sheet.
