Charles Bradley, Screaming Eagle Of Soul, Dead At 68

After a months-long battle against cancer, Charles Bradley — soul singer, lover, and fighter to the very end — passed away in Brooklyn on September 23. He was 68.

Last fall, Bradley, touring in support of his third full-length album, 2016’s Changes, canceled a run of dates upon receiving his stomach cancer diagnosis. Following treatment and rest, the cancer retreated to the point where Bradley was not only able to return to the stage he so dearly loved, but deliver some of his most powerful performances to date.

Bradley frequently made his way into the crowd to embrace his fans in the final stretch of his shows, a rare talent who gave a whole new meaning to reaching out. This propensity to connect thrives as the warm undercurrent of his music, from the first singles he recorded with the Sugarman 3 and the Menahan Street Band to Changes. His career began after he was discovered performing James Brown cover sets under the name of Black Velvet in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn. Over the course of it, every one of his three LPs repeatedly begged the listener to cling to love and the pursuit of understanding in the face of adversity and hatred, with “The World (Is Going Up In Flames)” and “Why Is It So Hard” off 2011’s No Time for Dreaming striking particularly poignant chords.

Fans took to social media to express their grief after news broke of his passing, with Questlove, El-P of Run The Jewels, Zoe Kravitz, and others mourning the loss of the singer.

When he died, Bradley was in Brooklyn and surrounded by friends and family, including many of the musicians he had worked with over the years. He was surrounded, and embraced, by love.

Diddy Encourages NFL Players To ‘Stand Up For Each Other’ After Trump’s Insults

On September 22, Donald Trump called Colin Kaepernick a “son of a bitch,” and followed that insult up with tweets criticizing the quarterback and activist for kneeling during the National Anthem before football games as a form of peaceful protest.

His Apprentice-invoking comments sparked outrage, with tons of people — including Kaepernick’s mother — flooding social media with criticisms of the president’s remarks. One of those people was Sean Combs, a/k/a Diddy, who called for “Team Love” and Kaepernick’s colleagues in the NFL to respond to Trump with a show of solidarity.

In a video he posted to Instagram and a series of tweets spelling out his message, Diddy encouraged NFL players to use the massive platform afforded to them on Sunday, or game day. Diddy joins Jesse Williams, Issa Rae, Daveed Diggs, Jay-Z, and countless others who have encouraged NFL players to #TakeAKnee and voiced support for Kaepernick.

“I just want to send some blessings and also some support to all the players in the NFL,” he said. “My message to y’all — even though you ain’t askin’, so, please receive it, because I rarely give it in this way — y’all got a chance to do something really, really, really, really, really great tomorrow.”

“If you all do whatever you do in unity, you can’t be stopped,” he continued. “Just do the math, man. Do the math, stick together, stand up for each other, ride with each other because believe me, we’re all we got and it has nothing to do with football or business. Y’all are our stars, y’all represent us, y’all are our strong heroes. So show that strength, please.”

Drake No Longer Has The Most-Streamed Song Ever, Thanks To Ed Sheeran

Toward the end of 2016, Drake‘s “One Dance” became the first song in history to reach 1 billion (with a B) streams on Spotify. The 6 God followed up that feat by dropping the “mixtape” More Life in March, which quickly became the most-streamed release in a single day, beating out Ed Sheeran‘s ÷ by more than 33 million plays. With me so far? Cool.

This is all to set up today’s revelatory news that Sheeran has struck back — or more specifically, his fans have — via his song “Shape of You,” which has stolen the title of most-streamed song from “One Dance” not even a year after Drake set the record. “Shape of You” has reportedly been streamed 1.318 billion times, as of September 22.

Sheeran’s “Shape of You” has gradually, steadily snowballed into an avalanche throughout 2017 from its release in early January. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and stayed on the chart for 36 weeks; the song also hit the top spot on several other charts before hitting that 1 billion streams mark in June.

Sheeran also appeared on Game of Thrones this past season, a feat Drake has yet to top (or even match). Your move, Aubrey.

Justin Bieber Stands Up For Black Lives Matter In Powerful New Post

As far as celebrity Instagram accounts go, Justin Bieber’s is one of the most erratic — you never know what silly selfies or random memes will show up there. On Friday (September 22), though, the “Friends” singer used his massive platform for an important cause, shedding light on racism in the U.S.

Accompanied by a bold yellow and black graphic with the phrase “BLACK LIVES MATTER” on it, Bieber announced to his 91 million followers, “I am a white Canadian and I will never know what it feels like to be an African American but what I do know is I am willing to stand up and use my voice to shine light on racism.”

The 23-year-old continued, “It’s a real thing and it’s more prevalent now than I have ever seen in my lifetime… We are all God[‘s] children and we are ALL EQUAL.”

It’s not clear what specifically prompted Bieber’s Black Lives Matter post, but his message about speaking up for equality is always a welcome and essential one. Bieber’s Instagram bio reads, “Help change the world,” and it’s posts like this that prove he’s doing exactly that.

Camila Cabello Takes You Behind The Scenes Of Her First Tour As A Solo Artist

If you weren’t lucky enough to score tickets to Bruno Mars‘s 24K Magic tour, Camila Cabello can help ease your FOMO. In an intimate new tour documentary for YouTube, she’s sharing an inside look at her portion of the show. The first episode, released Thursday (September 21), gives you a front-row seat to her rehearsals — from her bathroom vocal warm-ups to a stadium seating over 20,000 people. Casual.

Cabello is hardly a stranger to the stage, but touring the globe with Fifth Harmony was different from hitting the road solo. “I remember the first show, I was so intimidated, like I was so scared,” she reveals in the clip.

The 24K Magic tour kicked off last March, with Cabello joining as an opener in July. This part of the documentary highlights performances at Chicago’s Union Center.

“There was like a switch, I think,” Cabello continued, “in the second or third show where I was like, wait a second, these people aren’t judging me. They’re there to have a good time.”

But that doesn’t mean the “Havana” singer takes it easy onstage. “It’s definitely good to have to, like, earn an applause,” she added.
