Drake delays album release to focus on his tour
Drake fans will have to wait a little longer for his highly anticipated album, “For All the Dogs.” The Canadian rapper took to social media to announce the second delay of the album’s release. He explained the difficult decision he faced – cancel shows on his ongoing “Its All A Blur” tour to finish the album or complete the tour and release the album later. Showing his dedication to his fans, Drake chose the latter option. The album is now scheduled to drop on October 6th. Drake reassured his followers that he wants to create unforgettable memories with them during his live shows, and finishing the album before the tour ends will allow him to do just that.
SZA’s absence from the MTV VMA’s explained
Many fans were left wondering why SZA was not present at the recent MTV Video Music Awards. Her manager, Terence Henderson, shed some light on the situation in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter. According to Henderson, it was “disrespectful” for MTV to snub SZA in the Artist of the Year category. He emphasized that SZA had an incredibly successful year, thanks to her album “SOS.” Henderson argued that it made no sense for her not to receive a nomination. While artists like Beyonce, Shakira, and Doja Cat received nods in that category, Taylor Swift ultimately took home the award. SZA’s absence left her fans disappointed and questioning the fairness of the awards.
Liam Gallagher drops hint about his new album
Liam Gallagher fans have reason to rejoice as the former Oasis frontman recently shared exciting news about his upcoming album. Responding to a fan on Twitter, Gallagher revealed that his follow-up album to “C’mon You Know” is almost done. This revelation explains why he has been quiet on announcing a new tour. Taking his time to perfect the record, Liam has been focused on finishing the album before making any official announcements. This upcoming release follows his last album, which came out in 2022. Additionally, Gallagher treated fans to a live album showcasing his monumental gig at Knebworth from last year, where he performed for a staggering 170,000 fans over two nights.
