Haley Reinhart will have her cake and eat it, too, this year. Not only is the groovy pop songstress mounting a headlining tour here in the states this June, but she has announced plans to extensively tour overseas this fall. The tour is in support of her brand new sophomore studio album, Better, which Popdust raved about here. New tour stops include Paris, Munich, Amsterdam and Vienna, among many other major markets.
Back in March, Reinhart spoke with us, in detail, about her new album. “My journey has been incredible. I decided to do this project all on my own with my team in LA and my publishing company. It feels right to release ‘Better’ on my own. It could be somewhere different in the near future, but this feels right,” she said.
She even teased that many labels have approached her with lucrative deals. “I had a lot of different ones contact me. It took a long time to make sure things were right. I want to get this album out there. Maybe, I’ll find the right home eventually. When you have a gut feeling, you don’t want to really wait. I’ve made my fans wait long enough for the second record. I’m ready to get this out now.”
“The theme throughout [this album] is confidence. Even with ‘Listen Up,’ I would gear a lot of the record toward the ladies out there. The new album has the same kind of thing throughout it, too. The title ‘Better’ is simple and sweet, and the word itself means to progress or evolve or grow. It’s positive. Even in a lot of the artwork I’m doing, I have roses represented throughout all the photos. I wanted to tie in something that represents growth and evolution. A rose is constantly growing, blooming, flourishing.”
Better is now available on iTunes.

Protest music aside, there is a slew of good underground music out today
An invigorating slew of protest music hit the shelves today.
Detroit-based emcee Tee Grizzley collaborated with Queen Naija and the Detroit Youth Choir to craft a melodic ballad that attempts to open up a dialogue with police. Meanwhile, alt-Jazz pioneer Terrace Martin took a different approach in his collaboration with Denzel Curry, Daylyt, G Perico, and Kamasi Washington, with "Pigs Feet" being more of an angry f*ck you than an attempt at communication.
After a week of silence, Kanye's actions speak louder than words.
After remaining silent for several days, Kanye West has donated $2 million to organizations associated with Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd.
He'll also be supporting Black-owned businesses in Chicago and will cover legal expenses for the Arbery and Taylor families. Additionally, he's started a college fund for Floyd's daughter, Gianna.
