Shawn Mendes is gearing up to release new music, and it is on the way shortly. On Monday, the 19-year-old teamed up with Spotify to run a billboard announcing he has something up his sleeve. Debuting a serious-looking new promotional photo, the ad also includes a promise: “Coming soon.” This is the same method Troye Sivan used before unveiling his current single, “My My My!,” earlier this year, so it stands to reason that we could be hearing whatever is on the way before the end of the week.
Justin Timberlake may be a part-owner of the Memphis Grizzlies, but he has no problem sinking some “filthy” shots on another team’s turf!The singer was in Washington, D.C., on Monday for his Man of the Woods tour stop at the Capital One Arena, and stopped by the Washington Wizards’ practice facility to show off some of his impressive hoops skills.

Dua Lipa has taken a break from touring for oral surgery.On Wednesday, the 22-year-old “New Rules” singer — who is currently opening for Bruno Mars on his 24K Magic World Tour in Australia and New Zealand — revealed she had to drop out of two Brisbane concerts (March 14 – 15) to get her wisdom teeth removed.

A lot has happened to Ariana Grande since the release of Dangerous Woman in 2016.

Now TMZ is reporting that Grande’s fourth studio album is ready to go.We already knew she was working with Pharrell, who reportedly produced about half the new LP. The other half fell to Grande’s longtime collaborator Max Martin, who produced some of her greatest hits including “Problem” and “Into You”.
Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun have wrapped touring behind their 2015 album Blurryface (and are likely already at work on its follow-up), but Twenty One Pilots‘ mainstream-conquering breakthrough is still racking up honors. This morning, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), announced that Blurryface had become the first album ever to have every one of its songs certified (at least) Gold. The last one to clear the hurdle was its synthy, crystalline 12th track, “Hometown,” which recently reached the 500,000 units required for RIAA Gold status.
Pop singer-songwriter MAX recently sat down with Billboard as part of the “How It Went Down” video series, to reveal how his romantic breakthrough hit song “Lights Down Low” — which he used to propose to his now-wife — was created.The track, which appears on MAX’s third studio album Hell’s Kitchen Angel, was written while he was on tour with Fall Out Boy and Wiz Khalifa. At the time, the musician had just started dating the woman he would one day marry, and she would fly out to see him on weekends throughout the tour. “Our time was so precious,” says MAX, explaining that the lyric, “Can I stop the flow of time?/ Can I swim in your divine?” was inspired by their short, sporadic visits together.
