DJ Khaled’s brand is excess, opulence, and over-the-top enthusiasm. For the better part of two decades, the man born Khaled Khaled has been rounding up as many famous rappers, singers, and producers as he can, piling them onto XXXL pop-rap songs laser-targeted at radio, and shouting various catchphrases on top of them at maximum volume.

The distinction doesn’t really matter, but 20-year-old Beatrice Laus, aka Bea Kristi, blurs the genre barrier in fascinating ways, to the point of nostalgic mirage. The British-Filipino musician’s debut album Fake It Flowers, out this Friday, marks her as the latest in a lineage of artists…

Everything about Blackpink is huge and emphatic and in your face. The crushing titanium beats, the severe top-of-the-lungs melodies and swaggering rap bars, the ostentatious eye-catching outfits, the bombastically busy and colorful music videos, the radical empowerment messaging, even the all-caps album titles: This is K-pop — a genre not known for its subtlety –…

Curtis Waters is cheesing in a tuxedo. He’s fanning himself with money, and then he’s perched atop a cloud, making it rain. He thrusts his pelvis, flails with the grace of a drunken reveler, does a couple skeet-skeet hand gestures, launches into awkward jump-spins and barely sticks the landing.
