Drake’s been hitting the gym hard recently—or #pushingpounds as he likes to call it—and he’s not scared to show off the results.
Aubrey “Daayum” Graham has been making his legion of Instagram followers more than a little thirsty with a series of sweaty, shirtless, rock hard abs photos…. and, we for one are not complaining.
The singer has been working out hard with his trainer, Jonny Roxx, for some time now—and the results speak for themselves—as evident in Popdust’s gallery below.
But, it’s not just the glistening pumped up torso that’s getting attention—the 28-year-old’s fineness has been even further amplified by the addition of a neatly trimmed, thick, black, beautiful beard.
The beard almost takes away from the body…almost…but, not quite….and even sparked an appreciation day all of its own.
PostBadBeards declared yesterday #AubreyAppreciationDay and asked Twitter followers to post their reactions to Hip Hop’s premiere hirsute hottie—and, not surprisingly, the vast majority were very, very Aubrey appreciative.
Meanwhile, in between laying a multitude of thirst traps throughout his Instagram account, Drake’s taken his hot body and beard combo over the pond, where he’s been hanging out at Wimbledon……just, well, just, looking mighty, mighty fine…
Breaking down the bias of comfort films.
With the constant onslaught of complicated news that 2020 has brought, sometimes you just want to be able to shut off your brain, relax, and feel happy.
Enter comfort films. These are the feel-good movies that feel like a warm hug when you finish them, the ones that allow you to escape for a short while. We often turn to these types of films in times of trouble or extreme stress, and when we're not sure what films of this nature we should watch, we turn to the Internet for options.
25 years ago, pop stars and rappers were were expected to stay in their respective lanes. But Mariah Carey proved that hip-hop and pop were a match made in heaven—changing popular music as we know it.
Hip-Hop is pop—not in sound, but rather in terms of influence and authority.
Certainly pure pop—pasteurized and whipped into its ultimate peak in the early 2010s—is still breathing, though despite its name, the genre's reign as the chieftain of popular music has ended.
Drake and Bad Bunny are as much of pop stars in 2020 as Carly Rae Jepsen and Kesha were in 2012. Spotify reports that, at this very moment, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's "WAP" is the most-streamed song in the United States. Immediately following that is trap-pop cut "Mood," a TikTok-famous summer bop by 24kGoldn and Iann Dior, two of many rising zoomer rappers who have embraced Hip-Hop's guidance in most melodic forms, like trap-pop, emo rap, alternative hip-hop, and pop-rap. And if that's not enough to give Hip-Hop a throne, Nielsen Music has confirmed that eight of the top 10 artists of 2020 so far are, of course, rappers.
