Cardi B


Cardi B is now managed by Irving Azoff’s Full Stop Management. Her direct manager there, Shawn Holiday, tells Billboard that she has new music on the way in 2023.



Pico Cibelli has been named as the new President of Warner Music Italy. He joins from Sony Music Italy. “It’s an incredibly exciting move for me to join the team at Warner Music and take up the best role in the Italian music industry”, he says. “Music fans in Italy have always embraced domestic repertoire, but that trend has accelerated in recent years, making it more important than ever for us to sign and nurture local talent. The success of artists such as Måneskin has also shown that Italian artists can take the world by storm, something we’ll see more of in the years ahead”.



Pharrell Williams and Travis Scott have collaborated on new track ‘Down In Atlanta’.

Pink has announced that she will release new album ‘Trustfall’ on 17 Feb. She recently released the first single from it, ‘Never Gonna Not Dance Again’.

Jean-Michel Jarre and Brian Eno have teamed up on ‘Epica Extension’ – a rework of ‘Epica’ from Jarre’s ‘Oxymore’ album. “When I started ‘Epica’, I immediately thought that Brian Eno could be involved in this most rhythmic track of the album, thinking that he could bring his signature ‘ambient’ touch in reworking the track – another kind of oxymoron”, says Jarre. “But he told me that he was most interested in developing rhythmic ideas these days, and here is the beautiful, ghostly, unexpected result. Thank you Brian”.

††† have released new single ‘Sensation’. Their new EP, ‘Permanent.Radiant’, is out on 9 Dec.

Taahliah and Loraine James have released a new track together called ‘Fuck It!’



Blur have announced a second Wembley Stadium show, after the first sold out. It’ll take place on 9 Jul. Tickets are on sale now.

Låpsley has announced UK tour dates in March next year, finishing with a show at EartH in London on 24 Mar. Here’s her latest single, ‘Hotel Corridors’. Her new album, ‘Cautionary Tales of Youth’, is out on 20 Jan.
