Friday Favorites!

Zane Lowe is my favorite interviewer. He allows artists to fully answer questions and he makes the whole interview feel more like a friendly conversation about the art of music and its impact on the artists themselves and the fans. If you don’t understand Billie Eilish, this interview might help:

 

News broke that Camila Cabello is going to star in the latest version of Cinderella! This will mark her acting debut, and the singer will have a big hand in the making of the soundtrack as well. The idea for this new adaptation came from late night host, James Corden.

Ahead of Earth Day on Monday, Lil Dicky released a fun and inspirational video as an ode to our Earth, featuring artists like Ariana Grande, Halsey, John Legend, Sia, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran, and so many more! Each artist plays a different animal in what feels like a short animated film. I don’t know what possessed Lil Dicky to make this but it’s pretty funny and cool. Check it out below:

On Repeat: “Better Not” – Louis the Child

The day before they melted faces at Coachella, Louis the Child released a new single, “Better Not” featuring alt-electro singer, Wafia.

Following suit to most of their vocally driven singles (listen to “It’s Strange” and “Right To It”), this one is just as electric as the rest. Wafia has been garnering a lot of attention lately and is slowly becoming a serious force in her own realm of music. Her soft voice sings loving lyrics; “It’s true love, don’t fake it, you better not, you better not.”

The Chicago based duo have curated their sound to be something so insanely unique to the EDM/pop genre. Keeping a regular pop song structure makes this one radio-ready at any moment. While the drop is meticulous in the coolest way, steel drums and handclaps hover over each verse right before a bouncy drop.
