Jay-Z Chose The Weeknd For 2021 Super Bowl Halftime


Jay-Z has dropped news about next year’s Super Bowl halftime performance letting fans know that Roc Nation has teamed up with Pepsi and the NFL to bring Canadian singer The Weeknd to center stage of the most electrifying sporting experience in the country.

Set for Sunday, February 7, 2021, at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Fl, the Pepsi Super Bowl LV Halftime Show, the Weeknd will sing and perform his top songs — and possibly bring on other big-name artists that will most likely be announced over the next few months.

“We all grow up watching the world’s biggest acts playing the Super Bowl and one can only dream of being in that position. I’m humbled, honored and ecstatic to be the center of that infamous stage this year,” The Weeknd said.

Taylor Swift’s ‘Folklore’ Is No. 1 Album of 2020


The eighth album by Taylor Swift, “Folklore,” has gone down as the No. 1 album of 2020, finishing the year with 2.3 million album units. It pulled ahead in the end over Lil Baby’s star-making sophomore effort, “My Turn,” which came in second with 2.1 million in the album-equivalent-unit derby.

The results come via Rolling Stone, which broke down the year’s music consumption data into several different year-end charts, with the differences providing some interesting points of comparison. For instance: Swift also tops the list of the year’s biggest sellers — and Lil Baby is nowhere to be found in that particular top 10. On the other hand, Lil Baby easily landed atop a ranking of the year’s biggest streamers — and Swift is absent from that top 10.

On the overall list of the top 100 albums of 2020 — which represents a combination of streaming and sales data — the Swift and Lil Baby albums were followed in the top 10 by efforts from Pop Smoke, the Weeknd, Juice WRLD, Post Malone, Roddy Ricch, Luke Combs, Harry Styles and, getting its shot at No. 10 for the year, the “Hamilton” cast album.

The Weeknd Being Sued

The Weeknd is being sued for using his alternative persona “Starboy” in a comic book. The lawsuit is being spearheaded from comic book writer Eymun Talasazan, who claims that he already created a comic book universe four years prior that “revolved around R&B and rap stars.”

Talasazan’s lawyer, Kirk Schenck, told TMZ: “We are not sure why Marvel and/or The Weeknd’s representatives failed to file any trademark application for the use of Starboy for comic books and film/tv projects. If they really intended to use this word to identify goods or services in the comic book or film/tv classifications, they certainly should have.”

According to Sources, Talasazan is suing The Weeknd for trademark infringement and wants the remaining copies of the singer’s comic book recalled.

Universal Music Group Shuts Down Apple Music Exclusives

(The Wrap-Up Magazine) Apple’s iTunes, Lucian Grainge, CEO of Universal Music Group and widely regarded as the most powerful executive in the music industry, has reportedly ordered the company’s labels to stop the practice of making “exclusive” distribution deals with streaming services.

According to Bob Lefsetz, author of an influential music industry newsletter, Grainge sent out a company-wide email on Monday. UMG, which boasted seven of 2015’s 10 best-selling albums and 38.5% of the year’s recorded-music sales, will be the first major label to ban the practice, which many feel has begun to diminish rather than enhance the way music is distributed and consumed.

The directive will affect dozens of bands under the UMG umbrella, including all five of this year’s album of the year Grammy nominees: Kendrick Lamar, Taylor Swift, the Weeknd, Chris Stapleton and Alabama Shakes.

The practice of artists offering exclusives to competing streaming and download services, including Apple and Tidal, has been gaining traction this year. Both Beyoncé and Rihanna launched their recent albums through Tidal, the streaming service part-owned by Beyoncé’s husband, Jay Z.
