Cardi Helps Corona to The Billboard Charts

Cardi B be spittin fire on instagram. She recently ranted about the global pandemic and its repercussions on Instagram. The video garnered thousands of views over the days before it was picked up by DJ iMarkkeyz, known for his viral music remixes.

He chopped up the video, adding some hip hop beats to it and repackaged it for the world to witness. The remix went viral with special attention given to the rapper’s delivery of the disease as “Corona-VIRUS!” and an off-the-cuff “sh– is getting real”.

The remixed virus of “CoronaVirus” sold out 3000 copies in the first week. It later debuted at No.9 on the Billboard Rap Digital Song Sales and at No.13 on the Hip Hop Digital Sales. In addition, “Coronavirus” picked up 626,000 U.S. on-demand streams in the same period.Well so much of Quarantine does bring out your creative juices.

The Brooklyn DJ said that all profit made from the track will be sent to assist families affected by the pandemic. Cardi B had come under fire a week ago when she dismissed COVID fears as government propaganda. In that video, she said that all celebrities testing positive were paid to do so.

However in the most recent video she was seen speaking about the celebrity privilege and lack of government assistance in the current situation. The rapper shared a video to her Instagram, addressing her fans in a surgical mask. Cardi preached about celebrities, president Trump and the current administration, whose flood of mixed messages on Covid-19 completely overlooks the dire reality for millions of Americans.Great job on the research Cardi B , Keep that mind busy!

Harry Styles Becomes a Chatter Box

Harry Styles Is Chatting Up His Peers And It’s Keeping Our Morale Up

Harry Styles is having a rather chatty down time in his quarantine. This week he sat down with his tour collaborator Mabel to chat on all things Love On Tour. And just recently, he sat for an interview with Zane Lowe of Apple Music. 

In the interview he opened up about a lot of things, saying, “Well, it’s kind of one of those things where it’s obviously disappointing, you get ready to play shows, but ultimately it’s not the most important thing. And also, it’s not like we’re being singled out. It’s kind of across the board. Everyone’s shut down so it doesn’t feel so ‘woe is me, why is this happening to me’ type thing.”

Definitely concur that this is going to be a productive time for all since the sense of camaraderie in this crisis is what’s helping a lot of people get through it.  

Continuing, he said, “I think a lot of powerful music is going to come from that, because ultimately you have people who have a need to express themselves through music and writing and film and so many different ways who are now having a lot of extra time with no distractions to sit down and think and stay in their own head and think about everything they have to think about.” 

Speaking from the heart we heard him say, “I hope that it comes out in terms of the music, I think we’ll probably get a lot of honesty, which is amazing. Because also I just think people just want honesty right now, especially in times like this.”

Thanks Styles for keeping the morale up!
