Maxwell paid tribute to Michael Jackson by performing one of the late star’s tracks at the Billboard Music Awards.

The 48-year-old singer took to the stage to perform at the annual awards show at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday night (5/15/22).

He decided to honor Michael’s “Thriller” album ahead of the 40th anniversary of its November release by performing the disc’s final track, “The Lady of My Life.”

Dressed in a sparkly black suit and gloves, the singer appears to have taken inspiration from the late King of Pop’s costume style for the number.

At the end of the performance, Maxwell ended the song by saying, “We love you Michael Jackson.”

The song contains the lyrics: “Baby through the years/ Gonna love you more every day/ So I promise you tonight/ You’ll always be the woman of my life.”

“Thriller” was Michael’s sixth album and became the best-selling record of all time.

It was released on November 30, 1982, which means it will reach its 40th milestone later this year.

The album became a number one chart hit across the world, including the US Billboard 100, and spawned seven singles including “The Girl Is Mine”, Billie Jean”, “Beat It”, “Wanna Be Startin’ ‘Somethin’ and the title track ‘Polar’.

It has sold 32 million copies worldwide and remains the best-selling album in the world.

“Thriller” also won eight Grammy Awards and was inducted into the institution’s Hall of Fame, while winning eight American Music Awards.

Michael Jackson died in 2009, aged 50, from a drug overdose.

Machine Gun Kelly is a perfectionist.

Brandon “Slim” Allen, the 32-year-old musician’s close friend and musical collaborator, revealed that Kelly was the “toughest critic” to satisfy when they were putting on a show.

He told Billboard, “Kells is the toughest critic. We’ll have an amazing show, 100,000 people, and he’ll find the one thing that didn’t go well.

Kelly agreed but added, “I also hate perfection. So I don’t know why I get so anal about [everything].”

While Kelly and his band – guitarist Jus Lyons, drummer Rook, bassist Baze and keyboardist Slim – play big venues these days, he used to do anything to get attention. when performing in smaller venues.

He said: “I would strip down and just be in my boxers, and just have this lanky, stupid body. But that made people stop.

And, in addition to performing at the Grammys and headlining Madison Square Garden, Kelly’s career hopes include performing “underwater.”

He said: “I want to play on all seven continents. And then I want to play in the ocean. Like, underwater. I don’t think anyone did.”

Little Mix struggles to finish their songs without crying on their final tour before going on hiatus.

Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall announced late last year that they would be taking an indefinite break from the band to focus on solo projects after their tour, which ends on Saturday.

In an interview with Metro.co.uk, Perrie admitted they had been too overwhelmed with emotion to sing at times during their gigs.

“It’s bittersweet. We’re excited for the future, but we can’t stop crying! To think that we’re not going to be together 24/7 anymore is pretty scary,” he said. she shares. “It also doesn’t help that everyone in the audience is in tears. When we’re singing Between Us, we’re on a flying platform so we can see everyone sobbing. And then we can’t sing because we’re crying too!”

Leigh-Anne praised her fans for helping them by singing the songs when they can’t anymore.

“That’s what’s been so beautiful about this tour. If our voices disappear because we’re too emotional, we know the fans are there and they’re carrying us. They sing the lyrics for us,” she said. declared.

Jade admitted the tour felt like an ‘awkward countdown’ and they want all of their fans involved with their final gig at London’s O2 Arena – so they’re streaming the show live for fans to watch at home.

“With the livestream, we wanted to make sure every fan felt like they had the opportunity to be a part of this moment and watch it with us,” Jade explained.

The global live-streaming event, The Last Show (for now…), will take place on Saturday, May 14.

Most indie musicians don’t have a problem with overdrive, they’re not seen enough. But it’s still possible to annoy your current audience if you’re not careful about how you promote yourself. You need to have an online presence, but you also don’t want to be too present all the time. You need a healthy balance. So here’s how to do the right amount of music marketing…

Is there too much marketing?

Comedian, musician and director Bo Burnham doesn’t post much on Instagram. In fact, he posts once every several months. It is not very internet user in general. When he launched his Netflix special INSIDE, which won him three Emmy Awards and a Grammy Award, he posted on his Instagram on April 26, 2021. Before that, his last post was in June 2020. Almost a year of silence on his profile.

Admittedly, Burnham already had a large following, so he didn’t need to focus on growing. But there’s something to be said for not posting unless you have something to say. Publishing for the sake of publishing may not be the best music promotion strategy. Also, if people get used to seeing your content every day, each post becomes less special. As I’ll talk about below, quality content always trumps quantity – if it’s just for the sake of quantity.

How to do the right amount of music marketing

Music marketing these days is less about using traditional marketing methods, like ads, and more about focusing on your overall online presence. So everything you post, you could say, is part of your music marketing strategy. And the “right” amount of music marketing will be different for each artist, but below are some tips for finding a balance that works for you.

Quality always trumps quantity

The quality of your social media content and music promotion attempts is the top priority here. I’m not saying you shouldn’t post something online every day or several times a week. Some platforms require it for you to grow your audience, like TikTok and YouTube. But the key is to focus on the value your content brings to your subscribers.

If you create music on a regular basis (which you need to do if you want to make it your career), you’ll have no problem finding interesting and valuable content to post. Take a quick video of yourself in the studio or on stage. Post a selfie with an update on what you created that day. Share a voice memo of a song you write.

Don’t post something just for the sake of posting it, just because you feel you need to stay in front of your audience at all times.

Talk less about your music

You know those people who only talk about their “thing” all the time? They’re super annoying and not fun to talk to, so don’t be that person online. Don’t just talk about your music. And I get it, it’s your social media profile and people follow you to hear from you. But, for example, your friends aren’t friends with you because you make music – that’s just one aspect of you that they like. So share your music, but also share the work of other musicians, champion the causes you care about, post funny memes or anything that can set your pants on fire. Don’t make your social media profiles 100% about your music.

Don’t post too much of a thing

Along the same lines, your social media shouldn’t be about just one thing. You are an interesting, multifaceted human being. Your existence isn’t one-dimensional, and neither should your online presence. So post more than just your music or your music in general. Share everything that is important to you. Not only is it a more authentic way to live online, but it will also allow your audience to get to know you better. And connecting with your fans is always a good thing for your music career.

Have a mailing list, but only use it when needed

If you don’t have a mailing list at this point, you’re late. Yes, people probably get more emails than they can handle, but most of those emails are from companies trying to sell them something. When a fan subscribes to your mailing list, it means they care enough about you and your music to hear from you.

The trick is to only email your fans when you have something that interests them. Don’t just email them with something like “Not much has happened with my music lately, but check out my song from 6 months ago if you haven’t not already done!” If you have nothing to say, better not clutter your fans’ inboxes with an email that says nothing.

Be authentic no matter what

Whatever you do, be your authentic self. No need to worry about which “voice” to use to develop your “brand”. The simplest and most real approach is to make your brand your identity, not an image that you create and curate. Granted, we all organize our lives online to some degree, but just make sure you don’t post anything you’ll regret the next day.

Authenticity is the best kind of music marketing and always will be, whether online or on stage. In the long run, this will outperform ads, news articles, and playlists.

If you’re wondering if you’re doing too much music marketing, ask yourself, “If I were to market directly to my mom/friend/loved one, how often and by what means should I share my music ?”

Travis Scott has been added to the lineup for the 2022 Billboard Music Awards.

The hip-hop star just performed his first public concert since 10 people were killed at his Astroworld music festival in Texas last November.

The rapper – who is dating beauty mogul Kylie Jenner – took to the stage at E11EVEN nightclub in Miami, Florida to deliver a 45-minute set in the early hours of Sunday morning (08.05.22).

And this Sunday (15.05.22), the controversial star is set to take the stage at the ceremony at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, in what marks his first high-profile appearance since the tragedy.

The 31-year-old music star is also nominated for Best Dance/Electronic Song for HVME’s remix of ‘Goosebumps’.

The latest additions to the line-up also include Ed Sheeran and Becky G, while Elle King and Miranda Lambert will perform a duet.

The likes of Mary J. Blige, Megan Thee Stallion, Burna Boy, Silk Sonic and Red Hot Chili Peppers have already been confirmed.

On the weekend, Travis kicked off the night in the DJ booth before grabbing the mic and performing hits like “Sicko Mode,” “Goosebumps” and “Antidote.”

According to the New York Post’s Page Six column, Travis threw money at the audience and said, “Everyone owes me a shot…we need every stripper to show up on stage f*** *** right now. We need every bottle flagged on this fucking floor.”

During the set, Travis also performed the track “Dubai S***” with rapper/singer Quavo.

TMZ reported that he performed in front of a star-studded crowd that included will.i.am, Logan Paul, Busta Rhymes, Future and Kylie’s ex-boyfriend Tyga.

Travis was thrust into the spotlight last year after eight crowd members died in a terrifying crush on the first night of his event at NRG Park in Houston in November 2021.

Two other revelers died of their injuries in hospital in the days following the event, while 300 spectators were injured.

Travis has done a number of low-key performances over the past few months – he once made a short appearance at a Coachella after-party on April 17. He also performed at a private pre-Oscars party in Bel-Air on March 26.

He is also set to lead the Primavera Festival in South America, which visits countries like Brazil, Chile and Argentina. Travis will play three shows in November alongside singer Lorde. Other artists performing at the festival include Arctic Monkeys and Bjork. According to TMZ, Travis plans to book more shows over the summer.

Nominations for the Daytime Emmy Awards were announced Thursday. The Young and the Restless leads the pack with 18 nominations, followed closely by General Hospital with 17 and Days of Our Lives with 11.

I saw Brave Rival live three times and each time I came away a little more impressed. To say that I was eagerly awaiting the release of this album is an understatement.
Unfortunately due to Covid the album, which should have been recorded in 2020, was only recently tracked but it looks like the wait was worth it – it’s a great album from the opening notes of ‘Heart Attack’ faded out at the end of the title track and has stuck with my player since I got it.

At first glance, the only thing that really sets them apart from many other up-and-coming rockers is the use of two female lead vocalists. But the pure attack and joy that emanates from their music is completely invigorating and the quality of their playing is breathtaking. They rock like beasts and the Blues at the soul of their sound is strong and powerful. The songs are well written and suit their style perfectly and the whole thing is awesome.

The band consists of guitarist Ed Clarke, bassist Billy Dedman, drums by Donna Peters, and lead vocals by Chloe Josephine and Lindsey Bonnick. The formidable Jonny Henderson (Ian Siegal, Matt Schofield, Boom Band, Elles Bailey) was brought in on keyboards (I suspect he could be added for future live dates as he adds a massive element to a few of the songs) and the entire package was produced by rookie producer Tarrant Shepherd, an up-and-coming control room maestro who cut his teeth with Brit Award-winning producer Greg Haver and award-winning multi-platinum producer and engineer Clint Murphy.

Frankly, there’s no single track that stands out – every track deserves attention and, frankly, kicks ass.
‘Heart Attack’ is a monster single, ‘Run And Hide’ is brooding and powerful, ‘Life’s Machine’ is dark, beautiful and deeply emotional and ‘Break Me’ (always a live favourite) is a superb ballad with a fabulous solo by Ed.

My top ten list is already almost complete and the addition of this one takes over, but it deserves it because it’s a stunning album and really has no weaknesses.

Sara Correia grew up in a family of fadistas, immersed in fado, and was only 13 when she won the Grande Noite do Fado (big festival and singing competition). Her raspy high contralto voice still projects the intensity of the roots music she grew up listening to. After releasing her self-titled debut album in 2018, she quickly made a name for herself on the Fado scene, with a release celebrated with numerous accolades. After having recently reissued her second album, Do Coração, in a deluxe edition, she is finally making her UK debut at the La Linea festival. Ahead of her performance at London’s Union Chapel on April 28, we caught up with her to find out a bit more.

Hi Sara, first of all how are you?

Hi! I am very well. With the success of “Quero é Viver”, the opening credits of a popular prime-time soap opera in Portugal, the start of the year has been an exciting one. I look forward to a year full of live performances and new music in 2022.

You finally come back to London, are you delighted to be able to play the date?

Yes absolutely. I think the postponement due to the pandemic made me want to perform at Union Chapel on April 28 even more.

What do you have planned for the London show?

Fado, Fado and more Fado. I have the honor of being accompanied by truly incredible musicians who bring their talent to every show, ensuring that each concert is unique. I am confident that they will exceed their expectations when they perform in London, just like me. So get ready for a moving letting go of the depths of the Portuguese soul as only Fado can provide.

You had an interesting journey to success, for those who don’t know, can you give a little insight?

I started singing when I was very young. I was a child at the time and accompanied my aunt, who also sang Fado, to Fado houses. It’s a “church” of fado singers, where you learn everything, and where I learned everything too. When I was 13, I won the Grande Noite do Fado, a famous Fado competition in Portugal. Following this victory, I was invited to play in one of the most important fado halls in Lisbon, where I had the incredible privilege of learning from some of the greatest voices: Celeste Rodrigues, Jorge Fernando and Maria de Nazaré. In 2018 I released my first album and the critics and the public were very generous with me. In 2020, I was ready to release my second album in March, just a week before everything shut down due to Coronavirus. Then we postponed the release until the end of the year, and with all the difficulties and postponed shows, 2021 was a very good year for me. I won a major award in Portugal with my record and was nominated for the Latin Grammys. I also did a lot of participations with other musicians and I was also able to tour in such great countries as Colombia, Panama, Chile and Argentina. Now the Do Coração tour is still on but I’m already preparing my 3rd album, which I want to release at the end of this year.

Your first success came during your teenage years. How has this changed your ambitions?

It didn’t change my ambitions, but it reinforced the fact that I want to sing fado for the rest of my life.

While your first album was a huge hit, your second album received a phenomenal response. What did you learn from the first to apply to the second?

I believe the transition from “Sara Correia” to “Do Coração” just increased my confidence in singing my truth. This is the essence of Fado. You must feel it in your bones and be able to carry it out as a cry, a lament, or an expression of your deepest being. Of course, being nominated for a Latin Grammy for doing what I love the most was an unexpected but incredible reward.

You recently published a deluxe edition of Do Coração, what prompted you to make this decision?

We had a lot of live material, as well as a new single called “Quero é Viver” and two collaborations. Despite the pandemic, I gave more than 30 shows in 2021, some of which were recorded, and with a Latin Grammy nomination and a PLAY award in Portugal for the best Fado album, we felt that these live versions and collaborations deserved a release.

Have you already started working on album 3?

Yes, but for now let’s keep the mystery!

Your sound is steeped in fado but has a contemporary twist. How to find the balance between the two?

Let’s not forget that I am 28 years old. Fado is a cultural heritage that has been passed down from generation to generation, and I hope and wish that my performance adds a contemporary touch to it. The new generations are falling in love with fado and they need to get along with it. So I hope to be that voice, to bridge the generational gap while preserving the art of traditional fado.

Do Coração offers some collaborations. How do you choose who to work with?

I have to love and believe in music. It’s not so much about the names as it is about the music. If I believe my voice is a good fit, if I can incorporate my beloved fado into it, and if I can add without losing what I appreciate the most, I will. In “Meu Bairro, Minha Língua”, a tribute to the Portuguese language, I collaborated with Vinicius Terra, Linn da Quebrada, the beloved and late Elza Soares, and my Portuguese friend, Dino d’Santiago. Also, in a song called “O Mundo Há-de Ser Mais”, I collaborated with Stereossauro, a Portuguese musician and producer, in a cross between Fado and electronic music. The original album contains a duet with one of the Portuguese artists I admire the most: António Zambujo.

Finally, is there someone you dream of working with?

This is going to sound crazy, but I would love to work with Billie Eillish! I admire his voice and his music but especially his attitude.
