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. Ice Spice claps back at haters in new single, Justin Timberlake is more vulnerable than ever, and The Killers take Las Vegas Residency—this is what you missed.
Not Even A Fart…
THE Ice Spice has released her first single of the year, “Think U the Sh*t (Fart)”. The track, characterized by its playful and humorous tone, mocks those who think too highly of themselves. Ice has come to humble everybody. Just give the song a listen, then you’ll know what we’re talking about. Iconic, if you ask us. She shared a teaser snippet on social media which immediately went viral on Tiktok, so fans are glad they can finally jam to the whole song.
Justin Timberlake is Back and Better
Justin Timberlake just dropped “Selfish”, the first single from his upcoming album Everything I Thought It Was, set to be released on March 15. In an Apple Music interview, Timberlake expressed that “Selfish” reflects his vulnerability, a departure from societal expectations for men. The song, co-written by Timberlake and others, is described as straightforward yet complex. The video, directed by Bradley Calder, offers a behind-the-scenes look at Timberlake’s video shoot, eventually delving into surreal elements reminiscent of “Being John Malkovich.” Timberlake mentioned that the album has 18 songs, chosen from over 100 recorded tracks. He also emphasized the mix of honesty and fun on the album. We’ll hear him discuss the album on The Tonight Show and he will perform as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend.
The Killers Announce Las Vegas Residency
The Killers have announced a special residency in Las Vegas to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their iconic debut album, Hot Fuss. The band, Brandon Flowers, Dave Keuning, Mark Stoermer, and Ronnie Vannucci Jr, will perform the entire album front to back for the first time ever during the residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace from August 14 to 30. Tickets are on sale starting January 27. In addition to the residency, the band recently released Rebel Diamonds, a compilation highlighting their impressive catalog of songwriting and musicianship, featuring 20 tracks, including the certified Diamond hit “Mr. Brightside” and other classics.
The Sweetest Mother/Son Story That’s Gone Viral
Grab some tissues for this one. Cat Janice, a 29-year-old alt-pop artist, just released her upcoming single, “Dance You Outta My Head”, on her 30th birthday, January 19. This will be her second release since her 2023 album, Modern Medicine, and unfortunately, her last. In 2022, Janice was diagnosed with cancer, and after two years of treatment, she was uncertain if she’d make it to her 30th birthday and witness the release of her new song. In a TikTok video, she shares that she wants to leave behind something meaningful. Janice has transferred the rights to all her songs, including the upcoming single, to her 7-year-old son, who she mentions is musically inclined. In an Instagram post, she expressed the hope that the proceeds from her music will support her son’s pursuit of his musical talent. People across the world on TikTok have been making their videos with her song and trying to blow it up as much as possible. Truly such a wholesome story.
