If you’re anything like us, we see an interesting headline during our daily scroll—pause to read it—but then keep scrolling without reading the actual story. So at the end of each week, we’re rounding up all the buzziest, news-worthy headlines you might have missed. Think of it like the “saved” feature on Instagram but for news instead of aesthetically pleasing photos.

Drake And 21 Savage Announce Huge 2023 ‘It’s All A Blur’ Tour
21 Savage is doing something for all of us as he and Drake just announced that they would be taking their Her Loss album on the road and kickstarting the ‘It’s All A Blur’ tour in North America this summer. Consisting of 29 dates, the tour starts in New Orleans and spans Nashville, Houston, Dallas, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Boston, Brooklyn, New York, Washington, Philadelphia, Inglewood, San Francisco, LA, Seattle, Las Vegas, and Glendale. The duo will also be stopping in Canada for Montréal, Vancouver, and of course, Toronto for Drake’s hometown show, but the date for the 6ix is to be announced. Her Loss was all around an experimental experience for Drake and 21 Savage both in their sound and the album rollout since its release last year. Their made-up interviews and magazine covers granted them the title of “pranksters,” but that only propelled the album to go platinum and all the tracks to debut on billboard’s Top 100 right out of the gate. For those who want to hear the songs live, brand presales have already started this week, but some fans are not so happy about the price they had to pay. This post from Complex Music sums up fans’ reactions perfectly, but Team Drizzy and 21 Savage fans would do anything for the duo’s rich flex, and you bet the entire city will be copping those tickets when the Toronto dates are announced.
Rosalía And Rauw Alejandro To Release Collab EP ‘RR’
Rosalía and Rauw Alejandro is the ultimate couple goal, and what better way to declare your love for one another than releasing a joint EP? The lovebirds teamed up and will be releasing a collab EP titled RR,’ highlighting their shared initial, arriving on March 24. This wouldn’t be the first time the couple collaborated musically as Alejandro worked with Rosalía on the track “Chicken Teriyaki” on her critically acclaimed studio LP, Motomami. However, this does mark the first project the duo releases since confirming their relationship in 2021. You’re not official until it’s posted on Instagram, and the couple hard-launched their relationship with a series of photos of the two getting cozy with one another. Since then, the power couple has gone on to walk the red carpet of the Latin Grammy Awards, celebrate Valentine’s Day and Halloween, and a special ceremony of commitment—not an engagement, but a tattoo. They really called me single in every font and color, but I can’t even be mad because they are honestly so cute together. Flashback to when Rosalía wondered what love is at her Chicken Shop Date with Amelia Dimoldenberg, and it looks like she has found exactly what she was looking for. The duo’s forthcoming EP consists of 3 songs, “Beso,” “Vampiros,” and “Promesa,” to bring all of us a little love to make Spring and the last stretch of Winter a little more bearable.
JPEGMAFIA And Danny Brown Share Lead Single From New Album ‘Scaring the Hoes’
I can’t help but think that their collab album name is inspired by the infamous TikTok sound, but who am I to speculate? I’m not the one to order a lean beef patty in my burger; I just don’t have it in me. JPEGMafia and Danny Brown are, though, as that’s the title of their lead single from their new collab album Scaring the Hoes. The duo had teased the project since last year and confirmed they are working on something together at the Smoker’s Club festival, saying, “So yeah, Danny Brown and JPEGMafia album. Y’all just heard the first song, coming soon. Get ready for Peggy and Danny.” The release date of the full-length record is still kept under wraps, but the hyper pop-leaning lead single is out, and it accompanies a music video that is just as neck-breaking and alternative. They also shared some behind the scene photos of the pair in the studio in oversized sweaters and conversing over booze. JPEGMAFIA had promised fans 3 albums in 2023, and it’s been rumored that the second project will be a solo album from the artist that follows his 2021 album, LP!. Danny Brown had slated his new album Quaranta to come out following his 2019 album, uknowhatimsayin¿. So if all goes according to plan, fans from the two artists are in for a feast in the coming months.
FKA twigs Teases New Song In Calvin Klein Ad
For those of you figuring out your wardrobe for Spring, FKA twigs just said to keep your Calvin Kleins and throw everything else away. The fashion brand best known for its hot and steamy #MyCalvins campaigns features the biggest names in the game in nothing but intimates. Their most recent Spring 2023 campaign featured BLACKPINK’s Jennie, Michael B Jordan, Kendall Jenner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and the one and only FKA twigs. The new twigs ad previews 30 seconds of an unreleased, untitled new track from the artist, and just as we’ve been blown away by twigs’ unique sound in the past, this new track is no different. FKA twigs’ signature vocals are layered over rhythmic snare drums, and hollowing beats synchronizing with her twisting and contorting her body in ways we didn’t know were possible. It’s been a minute since FKA twigs released her 2022 album, CAPRISONGS, and it looks like the star is busy dabbling into the realm of fashion as she’d just come off from attending the Chanel AW23 fashion show and Louis Vuitton Fashion Week party where she was spotted with her beau, Jordan Hemingway. In addition to giving life to us with her music, her fashion sense is also to die for.
