Cardi B


Mike Watson has been promoted to CFO of Warner Music UK. He was previously SVP Finance and started at the company as an intern in 2004. “I’m proud to lead an experienced and versatile finance team whose business support is second to none and many of whom I have had the pleasure of working with for a number of years”, he says.



Cardi B has released new single ‘Up’. Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music, the rapper says she plans to release a new album this year, and already has “like 50” tracks recorded.

Megan Thee Stallion and Bobby Sessions have released new track ‘I’m A King’, taken from the soundtrack of new Eddie Murphy movie ‘Coming 2 America’ – the sequel to 1988’s ‘Coming To America’ – which is out next month.

Demi Lovato and Sam Fischer have released new single ‘What Other People Say’. “This song is a reflection on what it’s like to lose who you truly are in an effort to please other people and society”, says Lovato. “It’s why I wanted to make this song with Sam – ultimately it’s about two humans coming together to connect and find solutions to their problems”.

Vic Mensa has released new track ‘Shelter’, featuring Chance The Rapper and Wyclef Jean. “‘Shelter’ is a spiritual note, a healing frequency”, says Mensa. “It was inspired not by Hollywood or Paris, but by what’s going on on the ground – in the real world, with the real people”.

Hayley Williams has released new album ‘Flowers For Vases/Descansos’. “This isn’t really a follow-up to [2020 album] ‘Petals For Armor'”, she says. “If anything, it’s a prequel, or some sort of detour between parts one and two of ‘Petals’. The meaning of the album as a whole is maybe entirely different from diving into each song in particular”.

Freddie Gibbs has released new track ‘Gang Sign’, featuring Schoolboy Q.

The KLF appear to have released a new album. Of sorts, anyway. ‘Come Down Dawn’ is a reworked version of their 1990 album ‘Chill Out’ with uncleared samples removed.

Marina has released an Empress Of remix of recent single ‘Man’s World’, featuring drag queen Pabllo Vittar.

Kojey Radical has released ‘Shellers’, a diss track aimed at the character of Aang from ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ from the perspective of the character of Zuko from ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’. It’s part of the ‘Fire In The Spoof’ parody rap series.

Alice Cooper has released new single ‘Social Debris’.

Tiggs Da Author has announced that he will release his debut album, ‘Blame It On The Youts’, on 12 Mar. Here’s new single, ‘Fly Em High’, featuring Nines. “Myself and Nines have been working together since around 2015”, he says. “Since then we’ve just been making back to back bangers! We have good chemistry, so it makes everything easier. This song speaks for itself, has a nice vibe and as always, is a little different. We don’t try to recreate. This is one of the pockets we haven’t explored before”.

Emika will mark the tenth anniversary of her debut album this year with three EP releases, featuring new material and reworked versions of songs from that first album. Getting the ball rolling, here’s new track ‘The Anti Universe’.
