Selena Quintanilla Perez — though, today, almost everyone knows her simply as Selena — died young and on the cusp of her greatest success. “I don’t know Spanish,” a young Selena says to her father in the series. Plus, in her day, there were fewer opportunities for Latina musicians in the mainstream American music industry. Selena’s talent and charisma made her a star — and then her fans’ loyalty and dedication made her an icon. The existence of "Selena: The Series" reflects an era in which Hollywood and the entertainment industry are finally recognizing the power of Latinos.

The Grit and Glory of Dolly Parton

For “There Was Jesus,” which was recorded last June, Williams tells me he “would have been thrilled” even if Parton had followed the typical procedure of recording her backing track independently and sending it to him. PEOPLE WANT HER gifts, her glow, her time; and Parton, who, as she says, “loves everybody and wants everybody to love me,” is often happy to oblige. Even I was not immune to the desire for a little more Dolly. Still, I like to think that in that extra, unscheduled 10 minutes, Parton was able to sit down by herself somewhere to write something — or rest. Makeup: Dolly Parton.

(CNN) "Dance Monkey" by Tones and I has become the most popular song on Shazam, according to Guinness World Records. The song was released in May 2019 and beat out previous record holder "Wake Me Up" by Swedish DJ Avicii. The song has topped the charts in more than 30 countries, and it debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at No. When it finally ascended to the top five, it became the first Hot 100 song solely written by a woman to enter the ranking in more than eight years, Billboard said. If you replace the word 'dance' with 'sing,' it's pretty self-explanatory," she told Billboard last year.

The biggest shutout for the highest honors in the music industry was The Weeknd, whose critically acclaimed album “After Hours,” was No. Variety called the omission of the R&B singer, who has been chosen to play the halftime show at the Super Bowl next year, “the biggest snub in memory.”The Weeknd, in a Twitter post, said: “The Grammys remain corrupt. British singer Dua Lipa, pop star Taylor Swift and rapper Roddy Ricch got six nominations apiece.

And now they’ve done it again, with a new album recorded entirely during a global pandemic. BTS’ first Korean studio album (following three single albums or EPs in 2013 and 2014), “Dark & Wild,” dropped in 2014, and showcased a heavier rap sound on songs like “힙합성애지 (Hip Hop Phile)” that has carried through the rest of their later work; their first Japanese studio album dropped later that same year. That garnered them a performance slot at the American Music Awards and on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” in 2017. BTS’s popularity despite the America music industry’s xenophobic gatekeeping speaks only to the corporate gatekeepers’ inability to welcome the world in. Music is a universal concept and its representation as such, especially within the United States, has been a long time coming.

Fast-forward to March, when he and Swizz debuted the series Verzuz (pronounced "versus"), in which two musicians face off on Instagram Live. ("Verzuz is still 100% Black-owned," Swizz and Timbaland said in July when they announced the partnership.) Instagram Live sessions typically last an hour and then need to be restarted, but many Verzuz battles have gone on longer without interruption. Because Verzuz airs live, Swizz said, he and Timbaland have the benefit of real-time feedback. None of those plans involve moving Verzuz from Instagram, Swizz said.

He rewrote the Bible in 24 hours, giving Rihanna the role of God and casting drag queens as her disciples. In a 2017 stunt, Mr. Daniel was named the mayor of Hell, Mich., for a day; in that short period, he declared heterosexuality illegal in the town. Mr. Daniel decided to lie to all of them. Since he was a teenager, Mr. Daniel had experimented with music. After that, in 2019, Mr. Daniel started an EDM pop duo called Adam & Steve with his fiancé, Sam Fishman, who is known online as Dr. Woke.
