It’s the start of a new week.
This weekend was a vibe. If you’re a music lover, you were definitely vibing like me this weekend. There wasn’t much major gossip or drama in the headlines this weekend beyond Gigi Hadid & Zayn Malik’s pregnancy announcement. This was a music weekend, new music broke the timeline. A new Drake project had the timeline buzzing. The consensus being that the album wasn’t his best, beyond a couple songs, but even if Drake disappointed; Almost everyone was shocked and ecstatic when Meg Thee Stallion and Beyonce released Savage Remix. I saw so many lyrics from the song being tweeted, I don’t need to listen to it. After Beyonce, Meg and Drake broke the internet with music, all news headlines were pushed to the side.
Did you know that the Chicago Bulls hired their 1st black General Manager? Did you know that 3 Russian doctors treating the coronavirus have fallen from windows and died?
