ed-sheeran-girlfriend-cherry-seaborn-e754a36b-4705-46b8-9353-1165d046eef2

Ed Sheeran verse on his song with Taylor Swift is about his own “end game,” his girlfriend of two years Cherry Seaborn. Check out the telling lyrics below.

Now well, when I was young, we connected
When we were little bit older, both sprung

Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn first met when they were 11 back in Ireland, but she moved to North Carolina to attend Duke University. They reconnected through a mutual friend who was working on his tour.

After the storm, something was born on the 4th of July

Ed Sheeran has mentioned that Taylor Swift’s 2015 4th of July party is their anniversary.

After professing his undying love on the track, I wonder if a marriage proposal is next.

All of Chance The Rapper’s Sketches and Performances on Saturday Night Live So Far

Chance The Rapper hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time this Saturday, but this was not his first go around on the show by any means. He has performed on the show three times, twice as a musical guest and once as a surprise appearance for “Ultralight Beam” for when Kanye West was a musical guest. He has also appeared in two skits before being an official host.

Let’s look back at Chance on SNL so far. I’m sure he will be back for me.

Taylor Swift Reveals the Process Behind making “Call It What You Want”

Taylor’s AT&T channel has been releasing behind the scenes videos of the making of the album “reputation” with its series “Making of A Song.” Most of the videos have been posted on Taylor’s YouTube channel so far, except “Call It What You Want.” However, a helpful YouTube user has uploaded the video above.

This is one of my favorite songs off the album, so it was cool to see the process. Also, Taylor basically confirms that that necklace she’s been wearing frequently in the initial of her lover. You can find the necklace here.

Xscape’s interview on Watch What Happens Live Is The Most Awkward Thing I’ve Ever Seen And I Love It

xscape-awkward-tgj-600x326

Recently united girl group Xscape came on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live after the second episode of their four part docuseries on the network, and it was so cringeworthy. While Watch What Happens is usually a very light late night show gossiping about Housewives, Andy stepped on some land mines and tender spots while asking questions with the group. Some highlights include:

Kandi calling out Tiny about her and Tip being together

The facial expressions! The lies! Kandi smelled the b.s. and called out it immediately. I’m happy they are back together though, they have a beautiful family and seem to love each other.
Xscape existing without Kandi
When Andy asked if they were making new music together, everyone except Kandi said they were. When Andy followed up with if they are performing that’s when things got even more awkward.  They might need to make a quick legal decision about the name rights.
Kandi and Jermaine Dupri
So Kandi admits that she slept with Jermaine Durpi, but not his dad.

Tamika talks about being pressured to get an abortion

This is more so sad than awkward. At least they were honest about the past.
And here is the after show with more shade

Overall, I just hope that the tour goes smoothly and that Tiny and Kandi, who have remained good friends over the years, stay that way.

59fb41388e26fcfaacf0f02f

WGCI announced its line up for its annual concert, The Big Jam. Returning to headline again is Chris Brown, who headlined last year. With a new album out with 45 songs and his already extensive catalog, he has a lot of songs to choose from. Other artists on the line up include Rick Ross, Yo Gotti, Playboi Carti, Jacquees and G Herbo.

I’ve seen Yo Gotti live a few times, ad he definitely has club hits that are fun to experience live.  While this line up is good so far, I’m curious about who else will be announced.

You can purchase tickets for the show here.

Where To Buy The Initial Necklace Mentioned in Taylor Swift’s “Call It What You Want”

taylor-759

In Taylor Swift’s latest promotional single, “Call It What You Want,” during the bridge of the song, Taylor mentions a significant necklace:

I want to wear his initial on a chain round my neck, chain round my neck
Not because he owns me, but ’cause he really knows me
Which is more than they can say

While many suspect that this song is about her current beau Joe Alwyn it was furthered confirmed by this line about her necklace. As pointed out by style blog Taylor Swift Style Taylor has been wearing the Tiffany Notes Alphabet disc charm initial necklace for the past year with the letter ‘J.’ I have an ‘A’ one which is super cute. You can get it here for $125.

Big Sean Performs A Surprise Pop-Up show for Metro PCS’ Sounds of Chicago Powered by Pandora

Pandora is one of the first music streaming services I remember using because it was a great way to listen to radio without always feeling the need to change the station to find a song that I like. Pandora is a custom radio station for you. So when Metro PCS and Pandora announced a surprised pop-up show with Big Sean, I knew it would be a bunch of hits. His set list was amazing, including classics like “Blessings” and new songs like “Moves” and “Jump Out The Window.” What surprised me most was how long the show was. With pop-up shows you are expecting just a few songs, but he performed over an hour set. His transition with the clapping sounds of “I Know,” a slower past song, to the fast “A$$” was also genius.

Check out the setlist and more pictures below.

In Celebration of Drake’s 31st Birthday, Let’s Highlight His Francis and The Lights Collaboration “Karaoke”

1200x630bb

Before Chance and Francis became “Summer Friends,” Drake and Francis sang “Karaoke.” Back in 2010 on Drake’s first album, Thank Me Later, Drake had a song produced by Francis and The Lights called “Karaoke.”  To this day its still one of my favorite Drake songs. The unique production and sound of the song was something you never heard from Drake. The melancholy of the lyrics and Drake’s hollow voice definitely takes you to the sad, regretful place that the song is about.

Francis was asked by Drake’s camp about making a song after Francis was invited on tour with him. After trying a few different tracks, he eventually gave Drake the “Karaoke” track that he had made for himself.

While Francis and The Lights went on to do great work and also collaborate with Kanye and Chance, I still hold a special place in my heart for “Karaoke” and its on of my favorite Drake deep cuts. What is yours?
