iann dior maneskin issue 398

In one sense, the word alternative captures a sound, just as a style or genre has a unique musical character. Used in this way, the term can call to mind a specific era or maybe that specific band that first helped us feel like we had our own distinct corner of the world. In another […]

Lil Uzi Vert (Garrett Bruce / Summer Smash)

The first thing I saw inside the gates of the Lyrical Lemonade Summer Smash was a memorial: a painted mural of Squeak PIVOT, Juice WRLD, and King Von, three musicians with little in common besides their city of origin and their untimely deaths. The second thing I saw was a kid with a patchy goatee exclaim “They sell edibles here?” at the sight of delta8 joints and brownies for sale at one of the vendor tents. Summer Smash understands the ethos of its college-aged target market, smuggling gray market vape cartridges in their Vlone tees and Perc 30 basketball jerseys: Things are bad, let’s rage while we can. Or, to quote a beloved Gen Z children’s song, “My world’s on fire, how about yours? That’s the way I like it and I never get bored.” Yes Virginia, they do sell edibles here.

The soundtrack to the original Space Jam was quite a big deal, spawning two top 10 Hot 100 hits with R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly” and Seal’s Steve Miller cover “Fly Like An Eagle,” and featuring contributions from D’Angelo, Monica, Quad City DJs, and more. The soundtrack to the sequel Space Jam: A New Legacy aims to have a similar impact. “We knew that with the soundtrack for this one, that whole idea of making a soundtrack for this generation, but still having that melting pot, was something we all really wanted,” Spencer Beighley, head of film at star LeBron James’ production company SpringHill, said in a feature for Billboard.

David LaChapelle

Doja Cat is great at going viral. We established this last year when “Say So” was on its way to #1. The woman understands the online attention economy. She is relentlessly charismatic. She is not above dressing in wacky costumes or singing silly lyrics when the situation calls for it. And beyond her ability to grab people’s attention with non-musical factors, she’s great at sliding between rapping and singing depending on the needs of the moment. Doja and her collaborators write extremely catchy songs. The production: Immaculate. The videos: Outrageously colorful. She can be a little much, but at 25, she’s one of the most consistently entertaining pop stars we’ve got.

The #1 single in America is a pop-punk song. With “good 4 u,” Olivia Rodrigo has become the latest in a string of artists to venture into the resurgent genre. The track marks an important point in the style’s latest mainstream comeback: Now that the biggest pop star of the moment has released a pop-punk hit, without rebranding herself as a pop-punk artist, it’s safe to say that pop-punk is pop again. (Predictably, “good 4 u” is currently all over TikTok.)
