While the rest of us have been baking bread, dancing like actually nobody is looking and cleaning the kitchen as if our lives depend on it, Camila Cabellohas been in the lab. The singer revealed on Tuesday (May 19) that she’s spent the past couple weeks working on a «jam session» for her fans.

Working in collaboration with Mastercard, Camila said she’s getting ready to bring «u a mini concert series, inspired to invoke a sense of nostalgia for you guys & me.» The two specials will kick off on next Wednesday (May 27), with part two slated for June 3.

According to a release from Mastercard, the intimate, acoustic Cabello shows featuring new versions of her biggest tracks are part of the company’s ongoing global Digital Priceless Experiences series, which create unique at-home experiences during a time when we are unable to enjoy them in person. Among the other experiences available are a visit to Spain’s Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza to learn the stories behind its masterpieces, lessons on how to throw the ultimate online party from sommelier Belinda Chang and golf tips from Ian Poulter, Justin Rose and Annika Sorenstam, among others.

In the promo video she sings a medley of «Should’ve Said it» and «Havana.» See Cabello’s tweet below.

Lady Gaga performs onstage during SiriusXM + Pandora Present Lady Gaga At The Apollo on June 24, 2019 in New York City.

Lady Gaga sprinkled some Willy Wonka-style dust on her Little Monsters on Thursday (May 28) with the surprise release of her Blackpink collab, «Sour Candy.» The mouth-puckeringly sweet dance pop confection co-produced by BURNS and frequent collaborator BloodPop is a 2:38 bi-lingual bop that finds Gaga trading off verses with the South Korean girl group’s members as they spin a tale of enticing love that requires some genuine, hard-to-crack effort.

«I might be messed up, but I know that’s love/ You want a real taste, at least I’m not fake/ Come, come unwrap me,» Gaga deadpans over a bouncy house beat following the teasing chorus from Blackpink’s Jennie and Lisa, «I’m sour candy, so sweet then I get a little angry, yeah/ Sour candy, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah/ I’m super psycho, make you crazy when I turn the light’s low.»

«Sour Candy» is the third track from Gaga’s upcoming sixth studio album, Chromatica (May 29), following on the heels of the Ariana Grande collab «Rain on Me» and first single, «Stupid Love.» The album will also feature a duet with one of Gaga’s longtime heroes and friend, Elton John on «Sine From Above.» The singer is so excited about the release that she tweeted out a picture on Wednesday in which she trundled into a Chromatica-themed truck to personally deliver copies of the album to retailers all around the world.

Ellie Goulding poses on the red carpet on arrival for the BRIT Awards 2020 in London on Feb. 18, 2020.

Ellie Goulding’s forthcoming studio set now has a title, a release date and a confirmed lineup of a-list pop and hip-hop guests, including a collaboration with the late Juice WRLD.

Goulding’s fourth album Brightest Bluewill drop July 17 and will be split in two parts, Brightest Blue and EG.0.

The first part, notes the British pop singer, reflects her “vulnerability” and our complex world “where relationships still dictate our happiness and heartbreak and can still be the most painful thing in the world.”

The Brightest Blue spreads across 13 tracks which “symbolize growing up and becoming a woman,” she adds in a statement, and includes the previously released “Power”

The second part spans five tracks and “encapsulates my confident, brave and fearless side and features all my recent collaborations,” she continues. EG.0’stracklist features “Hate Me” with Juice WRLD, “Close To Me” with Diplo featuring Swae Lee, her “Slow Grenade” collab with Lauv, and «Worry About Me,” her blackbear team-up she debuted earlier this month on The Late Late Show With James Corden.

The “Lights” singer has kept active during the lockdown. She was a featured performer in Global Citizen’s charity livestream One World: Together At Home and participated in the BBC’s Big Night In fundraising cover of the Foo Fighters’ “Times Like These,” which raised $45 million for Children in Need and hit No. 1 in the U.K.

Brightest Blue is the followup to 2015’s Delirum, which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and the Official U.K. Albums Chart. Goulding’s first two albums, Lights(from 2010) and Halcyon (from 2012), both went to No. 1 in her homeland.

Over the past decade, the singer has won a pair of Brit Awards, including British female solo artist in 2014, and bagged three U.K. No. 1 singles, including the final leader of 2019 with a cover of Joni Mitchell’s “River” (Polydor/Universal).

First Stream: New Music From Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande, The 1975, The Weeknd & Doja Cat

Kevin Mazur/WireImage

Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande attend Stevie Wonder: Songs in the Key of Life – An All-Star GRAMMY Salute at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Feb. 10, 2015 in Los Angeles.

Billboard’s First Stream serves as a handy guide to this Friday’s most essential releases — the key music that everyone will be talking about today, and that will be dominating playlists this weekend and beyond.

This week, Lady Gaga makes it rain with Ariana Grande, The 1975 delivers another opus and The Weeknd recruits Doja Cat for another pop radio offering. Check out all of this week’s First Stream picks below:

The Song That Can Be Described As An International Bop:
Lady Gaga feat. Ariana Grande, «Rain On Me»

If anyone thought Lady Gaga’s “Stupid Love” was a dance-pop red herring leading up to the release of her new album Chromatica, “Rain On Me,” her new collaboration with Ariana Grande, quickly dispels such notions. The new team-up shimmers to an even more spectacular degree, gobbling up house and disco touchstones to become a gigantic dance record about embracing pain as a marker of humanity (“I’d rather be dry, but at least I’m alive,” goes the post-tears refrain). Lucky for us that Gaga selected the perfect collaborator for the track: Grande sounds reinvigorated here, her melismas filling gaps in the song and her verse becoming a full-on diva showcase. If the rest of Chromatica is this propulsive, we’ll be grooving to it well into 2021.

The Album That’s Worth The 80-Minute Run Time:
The 1975, Notes on a Conditional Form

For those of you desperate to hear The 1975 deliver a concise (read: shorter) body of work after their first three albums contained at least 15 songs each: album number four, the 22-track Notes on a Conditional Form, will not grant your wish. Yet the self-indulgence and air-gulping ambition of Matty Healy and co. have also produced wide-screen brilliance on a consistent basis, and Notes on a Conditional Form demands your attention because it has several of them. The amount of rock-adjacent sounds covered here is staggering, from the scream-punk urgency of “People” to the coffee-shop acoustic intimacy of “The Birthday Party” to the hilarious gospel/rap/piano-pop mash-up  “Nothing Revealed / Everything Denied,” but Healy’s songwriting can handle the sprawl and jump over the potential missteps. Sure, The 1975 could have turned Notes on a Conditional Form into a tighter 12 songs — but then, the most interesting rock band in the world wouldn’t be themselves.

The Remix That Could Lead To Another No. 1 Smash:
The Weeknd feat. Doja Cat, «In Your Eyes» remix

The Weeknd and Doja Cat are two of the most recent artists to top the Hot 100 chart, with “Blinding Lights” and “Say So,” respectively; one is a established hitmaker approaching a decade as a major name in music, while the other is the mainstream’s most in-demand rising star. It makes sense, then, that the pair balance each other out so effectively on the new remix to the Weeknd’s “In Your Eyes,” with Abel providing the steady hand on the track and Doja delivering the breath of fresh air. “Hate the way I feel love, only hurts with real love,” she sings, her voice unexpectedly fragile, her sentiment taking a page from the Weeknd’s pleasure-is-pain brand of pop. “In Your Eyes” just received an injection of feeling from the exact right choice for a remix, and could become another major hit for both artists in the coming weeks.

The Video That Makes Eating Fruit Look Super-Cool:
Harry Styles, «Watermelon Sugar» video

“This Video Is Dedicated To Touching,” reads an intro slide ahead of Harry Styles’ new video, which takes a Fine Line standout, adds some heavy petting (on the beach, no less), and lets us all wistfully reflect on the days before social distancing. The “Watermelon Sugar” clip is celebratory and slightly ridiculous — no one man should have all that citrus, and at one point, Styles casually tosses a full watermelon high behind his head with little concern. Yet Styles’ charm levels remain unending, and watching him pal around on the beach and pose for photos will make you want to do so the same (even if, you know, the snack menu is slightly diversified).

The Album That Could Be The Arrival of a Reliable Hip-Hop Star:
Gunna, Wunna

In addition to scoring solo hits like “Skybox” and “Speed It Up,” Gunna has become one of rap’s most in-demand collaborators, hopping on recent tracks by Young Thug, NAV and his Drip Harder partner Lil Baby. Wunna, a new 18-song project, boasts its own share of high-profile collaborations, but kicks off with four solo cuts that showcase the Georgia native’s effortless flow, melodic understanding and flashy-lifestyle lyrics. Come to Wunna for the Travis Scott teaming “Top Floor” and the latest Lil Baby link-up, “Blindfold,” but stay for Gunna running laps around his foes on the crackling “Feigning” and crooning all over the late highlight “Don’t Play Around.”

The Song That You’ll Want To Add To Your Instant-Inspiration Playlist:
Sia, «Together»

“Together” is a song that Sia wrote for her upcoming directorial debut, Music, and the veteran pop mastermind has said in recent interviews that the track was designed as a closing-credits anthem. If that’s the case, rarely will leaving a movie theater feel so empowering: “Together” aims to enthrall its listener with images of rainbows, angels, sharing love and setting the past ablaze, with Sia selling the approach with full vocal enormity. From “Alive” to “The Greatest” to “Elastic Heart,” Sia has fashioned a solo career out of providing hard-fought inspiration; “Together” is a kid-friendly, candy-colored edition of that vision, and an effective way to reach a new generation of listeners.

The EP That Sounds Like An Overdue Hang With Old Friends:
Florida Georgia Line, 6 Pack EP

“It’s beer. Thirty. And I’m. Thirsty.” So goes the opening line on Florida Georgia Line’s new EP, the appropriately titled 6 Pack, and the best-selling country duo is making it clear that, even if these songs don’t represent the proper follow-up to their ambitious 2019 album Can’t Say I Ain’t Country, at the very least they’re going to check in with you and provide a party. “Thank the Lord it’s Friday night and it’s time to chill,” Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard remark on the standout “Ain’t Worried Bout It,” which joins the previously released “I Love My Country” and the impressive Songland product “Second Guessing” on the track list. That sense of relief and welcome distraction pervades the project, with FGL saddling up during a fraught period in the country and doing what they can to entertain over the course of 17 minutes.

The Song That Should Immediately Be Added To Your BBQ Mix:
Deadmau5 feat. the Neptunes, «Pomegranate»

For a too-brief moment in the 2010s, Pharrell Williams revived his career in front of the boards and became one of the biggest pop stars on the planet, thanks to “Get Lucky” with Daft Punk, then his own “Happy,” and his GIRL full-length, which snagged a Grammy nom for album of the year. Williams has seemingly placed his singing career on the back burner in recent years, but no reason that he can’t occasionally slip into the spotlight and deliver another heater, as he does on the deadmau5-Neptunes collaboration “Pomegranate.” With the robe-funk production taken care of by the experts, Williams is given room to glide around his sea of intimate euphemisms (“You’re making faces, probably so am I / We’re in the ocean / Waves are rolling in your eyes”). Even as “Pomegranate” serves as delectable summertime fodder, let’s hope it’s not the last we hear from Williams for a while.

The Album That Pop Twitter Will Be Raving About All Weekend:
Carly Rae Jepsen, Dedicated: Side B

Although Carly Rae Jepsen’s songwriting has evolved thematically with each new release — the young-love meet-cutes of her “Call Me Maybe” days have given way to adult passion and attentiveness — there’s still a mixture of an airiness and inclusivity that has served as her bedrock and turned her into a cult hero. Dedicated: Side B, a collection of cuts from the sessions of last year’s masterful Dedicated, is stronger than most pop stars’ actual albums, and part of that consistency has to do with a lack of pomp or circumstance. Songs like “Summer Love,” “Let’s Sort The Whole Thing Out” and the Bleachers team-up “Comeback” are dreamy, ‘80s-indebted pop tracks that don’t need high stakes or superficial drama to soar. Jepsen remains such a talented song creator that even her castoffs sound blissful.

Lana Del Rey Defends Her Comments on Fellow Female Singers, ‘Racist’ Backlash

Lana Del Rey attends the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards at Staples Center on Jan. 26, 2020 in Los Angeles.

After facing heavy criticism on thoughts she expressed via Instagram earlier on Thursday (May 21), Lana Del Rey is defending herself.

In her original post, the singer called out fellow female stars Doja Cat, Ariana Grande, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Kehlani, Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé, who «have had number ones with songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, f—ing, cheating, etc.» She then asked if she can continue singing about her own dark past «without being crucified or saying that I’m glamorizing abuse?”

«To be clear because I knowwwwww you love to twist things,» she wrote in the comments section of her post. «I f—ing love these singers and know them. that is why I mention them.»

«I would also like to have some of the same freedom of expression without judgement of hysteria,» she clarified.

Del Rey continued to defend herself via Instagram story, writing, “Bro. This is sad to make it about a WOC issue when I’m talking about my favorite singers. I could’ve literally said anyone but I picked my favorite f—ing people.”

She added: “And this is the problem with society today, not everything is about whatever you want it to be. It’s exactly the point of my post—there are certain women that culture doesn’t want to have a voice it may not have to do with race I don’t know what it has to do with. I don’t care anymore but don’t ever ever ever ever bro- call me racist because that is bulls—.”

The «Blue Jeans» singer continued to slam critics who thought she was calling out minority artists specifically. «By the way the singers I mentioned are my favorite singers so if you want to try and make a bone to pick out of that like you always do be my guest, it doesn’t change the fact that I haven’t had the same opportunity to express what I wanted to express without being completely decimated and if you want to say that that has something to do with race that’s your opinion but that’s not what I was saying.»

She concluded by writing, «When I said people who look like me—I meant the people who don’t look strong or necessarily smart, or like they’re in control etc. it’s about advocating for a more delicate personality, not for white woman—thanks for the Karen comments tho. V helpful.»

Lana Del Rey’s upcoming album, the followup to 2019’s Norman F—ing Rockwell, will be out Sept. 5.

Watch Nick Jonas Perform Solo Quarantine Anthem ‘Until We Meet Again’ During ‘The Voice’ Finale

Nick Jonas The Voice

Nick Jonas on The Voice.

The Season 18 finale of The Voice may have gone virtual on Tuesday night (May 19), but that didn’t stop Nick Jonas from debuting his new solo track «Until We Meet Again» during the show.

For his performance, the first-time Voice coach, whose artist Thunderstorm Artis came in second place during the finale, took to the mountains wearing a bright red sherpa-lined jacket as he belted out the quarantine anthem. «So until we meet again/ Imma keep smile, smile, smile, smilin’/ We could be miles apart/ But you know I’m never too far/ My friend, until we meet again,» Jonas crooned in his famous falsetto on the track’s gentle chorus.

While «Until We Meet Again» marks the singer’s first solo release since his 2018 collaborations with Mustard («Anywhere) and German DJ Robin Schulz («Right Now»), he’s also been busy readying new Jonas Brothers music with his siblings, dropping the socially-distanced video for Karol G-assisted single «X» earlier this week. (The band also unveiled the long-awaited studio version of ballad «Five More Minutes,» which they premiered live at the 2020 Grammys, alongside the flirtatious, Latin-influenced track.)

Check out Jonas’ performance of «Until We Meet Again,» including a sweet surprise cameo from Priyanka Chopra in the video’s closing moments, below.

Lorde Updates Fans on ‘F—ing Good’ Music in the Works With Jack Antonoff

Lorde photographed on Dec. 19, 2017 at Jonkers Farm in Auckland, New Zealand.

Some new Lorde music is finally on the way.

The singer sent an email to her fans on Wednesday (May 19) updating them on her past few months. «I realised the other day it had been a minute since we chatted, and I was missing you. Do you wear your hair long or short now? Did you take your piercings out? You’ll probably be pleased to know my hair is big and long again,» she lightheartedly opened the message, before noting that she has «never felt more spiritually rich, and in touch with the voices that guide. (Yes I’m a f—ing herb. Sue me!!!)»

After some updates about her life in New Zealand and how the pandemic has affected her home country, she revealed that the music making process suffered after the death of her beloved dog, Pearl. «It was summer, a time of year which is usually so clarifying and special to me, but I was grieving hard for Pearl, carrying it everywhere with me,» she wrote. «I found a note in my phone from November which said: I eat a grief sandwich / I wear a grief coat / I see a grief film.»

«I started going back to the studio again in December, just for something to do, and to my surprise, good things came out,» she continued. «Happy, playful things. I felt my melodic muscles flexing and strengthening.»

She went on to explain that she and producer Jack Antonoff would meet up in New Zealand and in Los Angeles to work on music. «A thing started to take shape. And then, of course, the world shut down. We’re still working away — Jack and I FaceTimed for over an hour this morning going over everything. But it’ll take a while longer.»

“I know now how excited I am to get back out there,” she wrote. “I want to eat summer foods in beautiful countries—ice cream and tomatoes and anchovies. I want to use my gift, and watch it grow. Who knows when it’ll be safe to do those things, but I’m craving them, and I wanted you to know.”

The upcoming album, which would follow 2017’s Melodrama, she explained: «Waiting, the thing that felt so pointless and annoying when I was young, is now this kind of delicious activity. In my opinion, the greatest treat I can give you is work that will last ten, twenty, thirty years. And that kind of work takes time. So if you can, I’d like for you to try tuning in to the time spent waiting for something of the highest quality to arrive.»

«Enjoy the sensation as it builds. When the moment comes, our wave will crest super f—ing high.I can tell you, this new thing, it’s got its own colours now. If you know anything about my work, you’ll know what that means.»

«The work is so f—ing good, my friend,» she concluded. «I am truly jazzed for you to hear it.»

Demi Lovato Talks Living in a ‘Mental Prison’ on Jameela Jamil Podcast

Demi Lovato
Austin Hargrave

Lovato wears a Baja East suit and Wixson Paris bra.

Reese Witherspoon says she still feels marginalized in corporate boardrooms dominated by men. Demi Lovato describes living in a “mental prison” and battling an eating disorder that was triggered by extreme bullying in middle school. Those are just some of the frank conversations on Jameela Jamil’s podcast, I Weigh with Jameela Jamil, which takes aim at shame in all its forms.

On the weekly podcast, which premiered April 2, the actress and activist speaks candidly about her own shame, struggles with body image, a suicide attempt when she was 26 and how she’s coping with quarantine (“I smell,” she admitted, laughing). Her guests also lay themselves bare, revealing deeply personal struggles and pain.

Lovato spoke with Jamil about learning to accept herself after an apparent drug overdose in 2018. “My body survived something insane, a near-death experience, and I’m here today,” the pop star said. “It’s OK for me to look in the mirror and be like, ‘I’m not where I want to be.’” Jamil said she is not after headlines or trying to “get” her guests. She just wants listeners to know they’re not alone and shouldn’t be ashamed. Of anything.

“This is happening even to the happiest, most together and successful perfect people on Earth,” the 34-year-old London native and The Good Place star said recently from her home in Los Angeles. “You shouldn’t feel bad about your struggle if the most privileged people on the planet are going through similar things.”

The podcast comes two years after Jamil began the “I Weigh” movement, sparked after she stumbled across online photos labeling female celebrities with their weights. Outraged, Jamil tweeted what she weighed not in terms of pounds but in terms of worth, like her relationships and successes, kicking off a slew of similar responses from women sick of being reduced to a number on a scale. Jamil dives deep with her guests. Witherspoon teared up while speaking of women’s seemingly never-ending struggle for equality and respect, Billy Porter opened up about the painful experiences in his childhood that led to mental health struggles, and Beanie Feldstein talks about how she’s perfectly happy being, in her word, “chubby.”

“It shocks me how open they are,” Jamil said. “And it makes me feel a lot of love towards them. And I think in particular, there’s something about this moment where people want to connect with one another and empathize with one another.”

Jamil thinks her guests open up to her partly because of how much she herself shares and for how outspoken she’s been about taboo subjects in Hollywood. She regularly takes aim at the broader media landscape and how women are judged or pitted against one another. She calls out celebrities and influencers for promoting unhealthy diet products, including the Kardashians, Amber Rose and Cardi B. And she’s fought to protect minors from seeing such advertisements on social media.

Jamil says her activism has cost her financially and sometimes emotionally but that she has no plans to slow down. “All that matters is that I get through to kids to make them feel less ashamed of their mental illness and less ashamed of the way they look. And I inform them of all of the lies that they have been told,” she said. “That’s all I’m interested in. This isn’t my popularity contest.” Feldstein, known for her roles in Lady Bird and Booksmart, said she admires Jamil’s bravery.

“She’s so beautifully open and I really admire that in her,” said Feldstein, who was the first guest on Jamil’s podcast. “She’s really just a powerhouse in that she’s unrelentingly open and she has such a beautiful energy.” Jamil isn’t just interviewing celebrities on the podcast. Her second guest was former U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, who discussed the health impact of loneliness. Upcoming guests include feminist icon Gloria Steinem, #MeToo movement founder Tarana Burke and novelist Roxane Gay.

As for her other dream guests? At the top of Jamil’s list are Tom Hanks (“almighty unproblematic fave”), Whoopi Goldberg (she’s “always been my idol”) and Angelina Jolie, who Jamil describes as a role model. “There’s something about seeing someone incredibly famous, incredibly loved and celebrated open up about their vulnerabilities and their struggles,” Jamil said. “It demystifies it and destigmatizes it, and it reaches more people because of the size of their platform and star.”
