Kanye West won’t stop until Kim Kardashian comes back to him.

Amid their ongoing divorce, Ye sent flowers to his estranged wife for Valentine’s Day. He shared photos of a black pickup truck filled with red flowers pulling up to Kim’s Hidden Hills home.

“My vision is krystal klear” was written on the side of the truck.

In his now deleted Instagram post, he tagged Kim and wrote, “MY VISION IS KRYSTAL KLEAR,” along with a series of rose emojis.

This is his latest attempt to win back his wife, who filed for divorce from her husband of seven years. He has pleaded for her return on social media while continuing to diss Kim’s new boyfriend Pete Davidson.

“IM NOT GIVING UP ON MY FAMILY,” Ye said on Monday. “TO BE IN LOVE IS TO BE CRAZY ABOUT SOMETHING AND I AM CRAZY ABOUT MY FAMILY HAPPY VALENTINES.”

He also instructed fans what to do if they see the “SNL” star in person. “IF YOU SEE SKETE IN REAL LIFE SCREAM AT YHE LOOSER AT THE TOP OF YOUR LUNGS AND SAY KIMYE FOREVER,” he said.

Ye has been known for his over-the-top Valentine’s Day surprises. In 2019, he had superstar saxophonist Kenny G serenade his wife in their living room.

Earlier today, Julia Fox confirmed that she and Ye have ended their month-long relationship, but they remain on good terms. “I have love for him but I wasn’t in love w the man,” she said.

This year, the convention shone a spotlight on Zambia and Germany and featured local influential industry players including Paradise WorldworldNational Arts Council (NAC), Music In Africa Foundation (MIAF), the South African Music Performance Rights Association (SAMPRA), Basadi In Music Awards and Trace South Africa.

A panel on The Power of Music Conferences in Driving Regional Music Industries featured Music In Africa Foundation projects officer Claire Metais who used the annual ACCES conference to highlight the important role played by such gatherings.

“We had an interesting chat about the development of more similar platforms across the continent,” Metais said. “As Music In Africa, we were honored to participate in Africa Rising Music Conference because of the benefits it brings to the music industry.”

Another insightful discussion on the evolving role of a manager in today’s fast-paced and constantly changing music business landscape was covered under the topic Artist-Manager Collaboration: Key to Music Industry Success. International Music Managers Forum director of innovation and education Jake Beaumont-Nesbitt, who was on the panel, said: “Speaking with young managers from Zambia and South Africa, we learned how they are building brands for their artists and reinventing the business model to drive exciting new revenue streams.”

Among the acts that performed were Bholoja (Swaziland), Aka Kelzz (Germany), Venior (Finland), The Planetoids (Germany), Namakau Star (SA), Natasha Chansa (Zambia) and Yolophonik (SA).

Founded in 2018 by female creatives SJ Nicholson, Sharon Ramoshaba, DJ La Vita, Jules Spielmann and Namakau Star, this year’s edition continued its mission of empowering and creating bridges between creative artists and music executives so they can successfully move into the international space while offering valuable insights and connections to international stakeholders who are interested in working and understanding the African market.

“We had a delegation of over 20 international executives and artists from Europe,” Nicholson said. “ARMC has once again proved building bridges is possible when uniting communities and cultures. The Berlin Music Commission and the Music Board made this international interaction possible by bringing over artists and delegates from Germany. From an African perspective, we hosted the Zambian delegation for the very first time and 10 Zambian executives travelled here to talk about the state of their music economy and to establish new connections.”

Namakau Star added: “The energy and space at this year’s ARMC was amped-up and super warm. It was great seeing industry professionals coming together, we received a lot of great responses. There was a lot of learning and so many people felt represented.” Additionally, the delegates visited Soweto to learn about opportunities and barriers faced by local artists.

At the prestigious Marabi Club, the Africa Rising Music Conference concluded with a remarkable grand finale. Attendees came together to support the Bridges for Music Academy, raising an impressive sum of 300,000 Rand. Esteemed musician Zakes Bantwini, an early supporter of ARMC, graced the evening, signifying a full-circle moment. These funds will contribute to the growth and development of the Bridges for Music Academy, fostering the next generation of musical talent.

The Africa Rising Music Conference 2023 embodied the spirit of unity, collaboration, and empowerment within the global music industry. With its successful conclusion, the conference has once again proven that building bridges is possible when communities and cultures come together.

Yungblud Marks New Era With Latest Single ‘Lowlife.’

Published

on

Yungblud

Internationally acclaimed musician Yungblud has returned with a landmark new single ‘Lowlife,’ out now via Locomotion/Geffen Records, following a premiere with Zane Lowe on Apple Music. His breakneck voyage through the alt cosmos continues, with ‘Lowlife’ marking a fresh new era – visually, sonically and creatively – for the artist who has undeniably become the voice of Gen-Z, using his music to unite and empower the youth of today.

‘Lowlife’ is perhaps Yungblud’s most honest creation to date. Delivered with fervor and passion, it is an energetic, rebellious and turbo-charged anthem, fusing hard-edge melodies, heavy basslines and raw, vulnerable lyrics. It marks the beginning of a sonic and creative shift that sees Yungblud return to his alternative roots while also taking creative risks with quirky yet detailed production, and considered instrumentation that simultaneously feels both new and nostalgic.

Listen to ‘Lowlife’ HERE.

Speaking about the track, Yungblud says: “I wrote ‘Lowlife’ because I just didn’t want to leave my house. I was sick of people, of games, of myself, my friends, anytime I did anything some idiot had an opinion about it. What I should do or be. The truth is I didn’t want to be anything at all sometimes, I wanted to be nothing. So I just didn’t leave bed. I was dissatisfied and craving some sort of boredom. The type of boredom where you sit in your house, in the same sheets and watch fucking mind-numbing TV, so I wrote a song about it.”

He neglected the notion of being beholden to influences when writing the single and entered the studio with producer Paul Meany with no references or preconceived idea of the outcome. He says “I’ve not been going into the studio intent on making something like, ‘Close To Me’ or ‘Born This Way’ or ‘Life On Mars’. We’d start with a blank canvas each time, bring up a beat and see what the f**k happens.”

The single was teased last week when Yungblud sent hand-written notes to fans’ letterboxes around the world, detailing locations in London, Los Angeles and Germany, where blacked-out cars emblazoned with the single title popped up, attracting masses of fans who gathered in their thousands to experience the single for the first time.

Yungblud has just completed a huge run of sold-out arenas in the UK and Europe, and South American festivals, on his headline tour titled YUNGBLUD – The World Tour. He embarks on the US leg throughout June, July and August performing to his biggest North American crowds to date. Starting on June 27 in St. Petersburg, FL and making stops in PhiladelphiaMontrealToronto,IndianapolisNew YorkBostonNashvilleKansas CityAtlantaLas VegasSalt Lake City, and more, before concluding August 6 in Seattle, WA. For a full list of tour dates and to purchase tickets, go to: www.yungbludofficial.com/tour

Since the beginning of his phenomenal rise, he has nurtured a vast collective of dedicated fans around the globe, with a social following of over 14.5 million and accumulating billions of streams, cementing him firmly amongst the top alternative artists of his generation. With more music to come throughout 2023, Yungblud’s trajectory is looking brighter and more exciting than ever.

‘Lowlife’ is out everywhere now.
