Saweetie Debuts New Song ‘Icy Chain,’ Performs ‘Tap In’ & ‘Best Friend’ on ‘SNL’: Watch

Saweetie brought her icy charm to Studio 8H on Nov. 20, performing a brand new single plus a medley of familiar tunes during her musical guest debut on Saturday Night Live.

For her first performance, the Bay Area-raised rapper stepped out in a bedazzled silver dress while flanked by ballerina backup dancers for a slowed-down rendition of “Tap In.” As the song’s tempo accelerated, Saweetie transitioned into the girl power anthem “Best Friend,” featuring Doja Cat.

With “Best Friend,” Saweetie became the fifth female rapper to score three No. 1 hits on Billboard‘s Rhythmic Airplay chart. The collab also hit No. 1 on Rap Digital Song Sales and cracked the top 10 of Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.

Later in the Simu Liu-hosted episode of the NBC comedy series, Saweetie returned to debut her brand new single “Icy Chain,” which was released on Friday. With a backdrop of brightly lit oversized letters spelling out the word “Icy,” the rapper donned a short white skirt while twerking alongside her fellow dancers during the choreographed dance routine.

The new single will appear on Saweetie’s forthcoming debut album, Pretty Bitch Music. In June, on the red carpet of the 2021 BET Awards in June, the rapper told Billboard that meeting Cher made her realize she needed to push back the album release and get back in the studio.

“This album needs to have feelings, it needs to have soul, it needs to have spirit. And I have a lot of room for improvement, so I’m gonna work on that,” Saweetie said.

There’s no release date yet for Pretty Bitch Music, but Saweetie said earlier this summer that “it’s coming soon!”

Watch Saweetie’s SNL musical performances below, and see the full episode on Hulu here. The streaming service is currently offering a 30-day free trial, which you can sign up for here.

Big Boi and Sleepy Brown talk birds and bees on new track ‘Animalz’

OutKast‘s Big Boi and Sleepy Brown have shared a brand new track called ‘Animalz’ – you can listen to it below.

READ MORE: Run The Jewels: “The world’s gonna reset and then we’re gonna burn that motherfucker down”

The song is the latest to be shared from the pair’s upcoming joint album ‘The Big Sleepover’, which is set to arrive on December 10. You can pre-order it here.

It was first teased in 2019 after the release of ‘Intentions’ featuring CeeLo Green. The pair shared another song in 2019, the trunk-rattling ‘Can’t Sleep’, followed earlier this year by the Killer Mike-assisted ‘Lower Case (No Cap)’, and ‘The Big Sleep Is Over’ featuring Kay-I.

Now, Big Boi and Sleepy Brown have dropped off another preview, the sensual ‘Animalz’, on which the dynamic duo discuss love, relationships and the birds and the bees.

You can watch the song’s Sloan-directed video below:

Big Boi’s last full-length solo release was his 2017 album, ‘Boomiverse’, while Sleepy Brown, a member of production trio Organized Noise, last released a solo record, ‘Mr. Brown’, back in 2006.

Last week, Big Boi revealed that he is holding on to a song he made with Kate Bush, and he’s described it as “a monster hit”.

Speaking to Mark Ronson on The FADER‘s Uncovered Podcast, the rapper said the collaboration came after he met the elusive singer in the UK in 2014, while he and André 3000 were on their OutKastreunion tour.

Meanwhile, OutKast released a 25th anniversary edition of their second studio album, ’ATLiens’, back in August, featuring previously unreleased instrumental versions of the tracks. The re-issue came less than a year after the hip-hop duo released a 20th anniversary bundle for their fourth album ‘Stankonia’, which features the singles ‘Ms. Jackson’ and ‘B.O.B’.

In June, Big Boi made The Dungeon – the house in which OutKast recorded many of their early hits – available to rent on Airbnb.

The Nike Go Flyease Arrives In Black And Gum

Touted as one of the best consumer innovations of the year by Time Magazine, the easy-entry Nike Go FlyEase is being offered up in more new colorways in an effort to get the shoes onto the feet of those who need it most. We all remember the initial launch of the Go FlyEase hitting the mainstream newswire thanks to exposure from the likes of Jimmy Fallon, but with bots/resellers grabbing hold of the shoes, the lack of access rightfully stirred up a conversation on Nike’s efforts in ensuring proper distribution of its products. That in itself will be a long process that requires a lot of resources on Nike’s end, with no logistically easy fix, but the least Nike can do is make more product.

Offering up new colorways certainly mends the issue a tad, and this looming release of the black/gum should hopefully ease the demand – even if just for a little bit. See the official images ahead and stay tuned for an arrival on Nike.com soon for $120.

The Nike Zoom GT Jump Is A Zoom-Loving Hoopers Dream

Introduced back in March of this year was Nike Basketball’s Greater Than Series – a collection of hoops footwear designed with specific motions of athletes in mind. The GT Run, powered by React Foam and forefoot-focused Zoom, is for the in-game miler that goes baseline to baseline with ridiculous speed. The Zoom GT Cut (which we must confess is one of the best basketball sneakers we’ve put on in a minute) utilizes full-length Zoom and React, with tailored support for multi-directional cutting. The Zoom GT Jump is a Zoom-packed behemoth that will have high-flyers jumping out of arenas with ease. While Nike does create one-for-all footwear, the Greater Than series emphasizes the importance of the type of move.

Speaking specifically about the cushioning, get a load of this: the Zoom GT Jump features a full-length Zoom Strobel, and additional Zoom units at the fore-foot and Zoom. Any one of those apparatus’ would suffice, but this specifically stacked set-up is designed to encourage even jumpier jumps. The upper frame introduces a new JumpWire, which we presume provides the 360″ lockdown of Flywire. The Pebax Jump Frame provides a springy feel, similar to how the full-length plates in current-gen running shoes suggests a propulsive effect.

Zoom Air is simply synonymous with Nike’s basketball footwear at this point, so if you’re particularly adherent to the cushion, the GT Jump provides the volume and the zonal support that high-flyers will gravitate to. Earlier this year, Nike confirmed a drop in late 2021, so stay tuned for release details as these will be available on Nike.com soon. As for MSRP, don’t expect a pricepoint lower than the $175 for the GT Run, and don’t be surprised if this tech-heavy package arrives at around $200, which is the MSRP of the LeBron 19.

Pusha T teams up with Mako for new track ‘Misfit Toys’

Pusha T has teamed up with LA-based musician Mako for a new track called ‘Misfit Toys’ – you can listen to it below.

READ MORE: Pusha T live: a ferocious but swift introduction to “the ‘Daytona’ experience”

The new collaboration – which is Pusha’s first as a lead artist since 2019 – is part of the soundtrack for Arcane, Netflix’s new series based on the League Of Legends video game.

Speaking on the making of the track, Mako said in a statement: “I remember the moment we connected and heard Pusha T’s first pass, everything felt like lift off. He came at it with such authenticity and passion and energy.

“After that first clip, I caught him using this word, ‘misfits,’ and it immediately clicked for us to lean into that type of ‘misfit toy’ energy that [Arcane characters] Ekko and the Firelights represent.”

In addition to Pusha T and Mako, the Arcane soundtrack, which was released yesterday (November 20), also features tracks by Imagine Dragons, Sting, Denzel Curry, Curtis Harding, Jazmine Sullivan and more.

You can listen to ‘Misfit Toys’ below:

‘Misfit Toys’ is Pusha T’s first track as a lead artist since releasing ‘Sociopath’, ‘Coming Home’, and ‘Puppets (Succession Remix)’ back in 2019. His most recent album is 2018’s ‘Daytona’, which was produced by Kanye West.

In August, he revealed that his fourth studio album was “coming soon”. Speaking on the red carpet at the re-opening event for JAY-Z‘s 40/40 Club in New York, Pusha told reporters that the follow-up to ‘Daytona’ will be arriving soon.

Earlier this year, he featured on Divine’s ‘Jungle Mantra’ as well as ‘Tell the Vision’ and ‘Top Shotta’, two songs from the Pop Smoke posthumous album ‘Faith’.

Meanwhile, Pusha T has said he’s been trying to write a children’s book for years, but no publishing house will take him on.

The rapper shared the news on Twitter after a fan told him his track ‘Keys Open Doors’, performed by his hip-hop duo Clipse, was being interpreted as “a non-double-entendre educational song” by his two-year-old. The term ‘keys’ is actually referring to cocaine.

Spotify stops automatically shuffling albums at Adele’s request

Spotify has taken on a suggestion from Adele and changed its default setting, which shuffles album tracks in random order.

READ MORE: Adele – ‘30’ album review: dependable pop titan finally mixes things up

The streaming platform confirmed on Saturday (November 20) that it had agreed to Adele’s request, which the singer initially made so that her latest album ’30’ would be played in the order that it was curated.

“This was the only request I had in our ever changing industry!” Adele tweeted. “We don’t create albums with so much care and thought into our track listing for no reason. Our art tells a story and our stories should be listened to as we intended,” she continued, before thanking the platform. “Anything for you,” Spotify tweeted in response.

This was the only request I had in our ever changing industry! We don’t create albums with so much care and thought into our track listing for no reason. Our art tells a story and our stories should be listened to as we intended. Thank you Spotify for listening https://t.co/XWlykhqxAy

— Adele (@Adele) November 21, 2021

’30’, the follow-up to 2015’s ’25’, arrived on November 19, having been previously previewed by the comeback single ‘Easy On Me’ as well as ‘Hold On’. Adele confirmed that the new material delves into the aftermath of her 2019 divorce from Simon Konecki, explaining that ’30’ was her most personal and “sensitive” album to date.

Adele’s request to remove the shuffle default means that listeners will hear ’30’ with the correct narrative flow. But the shuffle option is still visible when a user clicks to view an album track, meaning it’s still possible to play the songs in a random order.

In other news, Adele revealed that ‘I Drink Wine’ was originally much longer than the six-minute track that appears on ’30’. Speaking to Rolling Stone, she said: “[The label] was like, ‘Listen, everyone loves you, but no one’s playing a 15-minute song on radio.’”

Tonight (November 21), Adele will perform a UK TV special An Audience With Adele, filmed at the London Palladium. It airs on ITV at 7.25pm.

Local Natives share new covers EP ‘Music From The Pen Gala 1983’

Local Natives have shared a brand new covers EP called ‘Music From The Pen Gala 1983’ – you can listen to it below.

READ MORE: The Shrink Next Door review: Paul Rudd and Will Ferrell series suffers from a split personality

The project, which was recorded for the Paul Rudd and Will Ferrell-starring Apple TV+ series The Shrink Next Door, hears the LA indie rock band cover songs by Roxy Music, Michael McDonald, 10cc, and Gerry Rafferty.

In addition to providing music for the show, Local Natives – comprising Taylor Rice, Kelcey Ayer, Ryan Hahn, Matt Frazier and Nik Ewing – also star as a cover band in an episode where Rudd and Ferrell attend the titular Pen Gala. In character, the band performs their cover songs to a dolled-up audience.

You can see the tracklisting and listen to the EP below:

‘Music From The Pen Gala 1983’ tracklist:

01 More Than This (Roxy Music cover)
02 I’m Not in Love (10cc cover)
03 Right Down the Line (Gerry Rafferty cover)
04 I Keep Forgettin’ (Every Time You’re Near) (Michael McDonald cover)

Local Natives released their last full-length album in 2019 with ‘Violet Street’. Last year, they followed it up with EP ‘Sour Lemon’ which included the Sharon Van Etten collaboration ‘Lemon’.

In July, the band remixed Manchester Orchestra’s ‘Bed Head’, turning the driving rock song on its head by adding sun-kissed pop rhythms to it.

Elsewhere, Will Ferrell has revealed that he turned down $29million to star in a sequel to festive hit Elf because he didn’t believe in its story.

The actor described the premise of the sequel to the 2003 film, which took over $222million at the box office, as being too similar to the original.

Meanwhile, Paul Rudd was recently named Sexiest Man Alive for 2021 by People magazine.

The actor, 52, known for comedy films like Anchorman and his portrayal of Ant-Man in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, follows last year’s winner Michael B. Jordan to take the title.

The tour – his first international outing since the Purpose World Tour in 2016 and 2017 – was originally supposed to kick off this past summer, but the dates were pushed back to next year due to COVID-19 restrictions.

“We’ve been working hard to create the best show we’ve ever done, and we can’t wait to share it with fans around the world. I’ll see you soon,” Bieber said of the tour in a statement.

He will also take the tour to the rest of Europe, Mexico and South America on top of his previously announced north American tour next February.

In a four-star review of Bieber’s new album ‘Justice’, NME‘s Will Lavin wrote: “’Justice’ is Bieber’s redemption song, and a more fitting follow-up to ‘Purpose’.

“Armed with a newfound optimism borne from a dark place, he understands he’s better when he’s tapping into his own experiences, projecting relatable human emotion and working out why he’s here. He’s singing about the things he cares about: his wife, his mental health, social injustice and so much more besides.”

The review adds: “With bangers, ballads and heartfelt moments, the hopeless romantic with a penchant for self reflection and tackling world issues is back. Beliebers rejoice!”

Listen to Arca’s glitchy new track ‘Queer’ featuring Planningtorock

Venezuelan producer Arca (aka Alejandra Ghersi) has shared her new track ‘Queer’, which features electronic musician Planningtorock.

READ MORE: Arca – ‘KiCk i’ review: a new high watermark for the wildly innovative producer’s experimental pop

The glitchy track with distorted Spanish and English vocals is a preview of the artist’s third LP for 2021, ‘KicK iiii’. The album is due for release on December 3, the same day as the previously announced ‘KicK ii’ and ‘KicK iii’, via XL Recordings.

‘Queer’ follows Sia collaboration ‘Born Yesterday’ and ‘Prada/Rakata’, which are from ‘KicK ii’. ‘KicK iii’ was previously previewed with recent single ‘Incendio’ and ‘Electra Rex’, which comes with a Carlota Guerrero-directed music video that was shot in September 2020.

In a statement on ‘KicK iiii’, Arca said: “kick iiii is an entry of sensual charge in the cycle; my own faith made into song, a posthuman celestial sparkle, psychosexual pulsewidth modulation, queering the void, abyss alchemically transmuted into a deconstruction of what is beautiful, it is a healing spell, recognition of the alien inside, a bursting apart of old skin, fresh new sinew rippling outward from a beating core, the first prenatal kick—proof that there is a sentience with a will beyond its creators’ control expressing itself from within the womb.”

You can listen to ‘Queer’ below:

 

Arca’s most recent full-length effort was ‘KicK i’, released last June on XL. It featured the singles ‘Nonbinary’‘Time’‘Mequetrefe’ and ‘KLK’ (featuring Rosalía). In a four-star reviewNME’s Dhruva Balram said the album “presents a new high-water mark” for Arca, calling it her “most accessible record yet” but noting that “there are no signs of compromise here”.

‘KicK iiii’ is the final part of Arca’s ongoing anthology. The album features 11 tracks in total and includes collaborations with Oliver Coates, No Bra, and Shirley Manson.

‘KicK iiii’ tracklist:

01. Whoresong
02. Esuna (ft. Oliver Coates)
03. Xenomorphgirl
04. Queer (ft. Planningtorock)
05. Witch (ft. No Bra)
06. Hija
07. Boquifloja
08. Alien Inside (ft. Shirley Manson)
09. Altar
10. Lost Woman Found
