Charli XCX promised fans that new music was on the horizon. Just a few hours after tweeting that she was "going to release a lot of music this year," the pop star dropped a surprise new song Thursday (May 31) entitled "5 In the Morning."
The flashy banger marks some of Charli's most hip-hop-inspired work to date, backed primarily by rumbling bass and a sizzling trap-pop beat. The singer sniffs out the posers in the first verse, saying, "Think you're the sickest like you got diseases/ But you ain't got nothing on this." During the uncomplicated yet catchy chorus, Charli celebrates her own determination no matter the time of day: "I'm goin' all in/ It's 5 in the mornin', I'm busy ballin'/ I ain't even stoppin'/ It's 5 in the mornin', I'm so devoted."
Prior to the new track, Charli -- along with Rita Ora, Bebe Rexha and Cardi B -- was the subject of some backlash for their anthemic collaboration, "Girls," which was tagged as falling prey to stereotypes about lesbian desire as conjured by the mostly male songwriters. Charli addressed the controversy, telling Rolling Stone "I apologize to any people I've offended by that."
Fans will get to hear Charli's new tunes as she supports Taylor Swift on her Reputation Tour, alongside Camila Cabello. As far as an album to follow up last year's Pop 2 mixtape, Charli's kept details under wraps so far.
Kesha dedicates her “Hymn” to all the DREAMers by partnering with United We Dream, the first and largest immigrant youth-led organization in the nation. After meeting with co-founder Cristina Jiménez last month at the Time 100 Gala, the “Praying” singer composed a Twitter thread Thursday morning (May 31) detailing Jiménez’s work with those under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and her role in the organization.
She encouraged her followers to donate their money and time to learning about DREAMers by attaching a link to her #HereToStay Network fundraiser, which pools funds to “provide resources to undocumented families and youth across the country.” Kesha also detailed that the song “Hymn” will be specifically dedicated to DREAMers at her concerts and referenced the lyric “dreamers searching for the truth” as an empowering line for young people under DACA.
Kesha is no stranger to dedicating videos to a greater cause. Her “I Need a Woman” video was part of the Universal Love project, which partners with Legacy Records to create an album of inclusive wedding tracks with the legalization of same-sex marriage.
Harvey Weinstein has just been indicted by a grand jury on multiple rape charges.
The Manhattan District Attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr. announced Wednesday the grand jury will charges Harvey of rape in the first and third degrees, as well as committing a criminal sexual act in the first degree.
Vance said the indictment brings Weinstein "another step closer to accountability for the crimes of violence with which he is now charged."
Harvey did not testify on his own behalf during the proceedings. His attorney, Ben Brafman, thinks prosecutors have "unfairly denied access to critical information about this case."
Brafman says Weinstein maintained a 10-year consensual relationship with one of his two accusers.

Cardi B and Maroon 5 are gearing up to release a Cardi-fied version of its single "Girls Like You" on Thursday (May 31) and dropped the news via Twitter today (May 30).
"Rumors are true. Our new single #GirlsLikeYou, ft. @iamcardib, is out tomorrow. Stay tuned for more!" the Adam Levine-fronted band tweeted.
This feature will mark the fourth single Cardi has participated on in 2018.
Kesha is still entangled in her ongoing legal battle with former producer Dr. Luke (real name Lukas Gottwald) after accusing him of sexual and emotional abuse in 2014.
On Tuesday (May 29), the appeals court showed no sympathy for the singer by denying her latest bid to get out of her contract with Gottwald. The singer was attempting to appeal the court's March 2017 decision that prevented her from filing a countersuit against Dr. Luke's defamation suit. That appeal was denied.
"Kesha's proposed amendments are palpably insufficient and devoid of merit," the Appellate Division, First Department said in a ruling. "Her counterclaim seeking declaratory relief terminating the agreements on the ground of impossibility and impracticability of performance was speculative, contradicted by her own allegations that she had continued performing under the agreements and, as to at least one of the agreements, the impossibility was not produced by an unanticipated event that could not have been foreseen or guarded against."
Kesha's attorney argued that she should be able to apply a California law known as the Seven Year Rule, which caps the enforcement of personal service contracts after a set period, to get out of her contract. That attempt was rejected, too.
"The court also properly denied Kesha leave to assert a counterclaim for declaratory relief terminating the agreements on the ground that they violate California Labor Code § 2855, as the unambiguous New York choice-of-law provisions contained in the agreements preclude the application of that California statute," the ruling stated.
"Kesha will keep fighting to be released." says her lawyer.
ABC has decided to cancel its Roseanne revival following star Roseanne Barr's racist tweet Tuesday (May 29). "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show," ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said Tuesday.
Early Tuesday, star, head writer and exec producer Barr attacked former President Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett in a since-deleted tweet in which she said "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj." Barr subsequently apologized: "I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me — my joke was in bad taste."
The tweet prompted a massive outcry across social media, berating Barr and calling on ABC to cancel the comedy. The Disney-owned network's decision to cancel the series marked the first time the network has taken action in response to one of Barr's controversial tweets.
In response to Barr's tweet, co-star and exec producer Sara Gilbert — who was the driving force of the revival — blasted her longtime friend and colleague. "Roseanne’s recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show. I am disappointed in her actions to say the least," she wrote on Twitter. "This is incredibly sad and difficult for all of us, as we’ve created a show that we believe in, are proud of, and that audiences love — one that is separate and apart from the opinions and words of one cast member." Wanda Sykes, who served as a consultant on season one, also tweeted Tuesday that she would not be returning to the series following Barr's racist tweet.

Roseanne was slated to return in the fall for an expanded 11th season of 13 episodes as ABC looked to build on the show's momentum. In a victory lap of sorts, Barr was the centerpiece of ABC's upfront presentation to Madison Avenue ad buyers earlier this month. ABC rebooted Roseanne as part of a push to program to middle America — aka Trump America. The revival was part of a larger effort by Dungey — broadcast's lone African-American network topper — to program to the underserved community who turned out in force to elect Trump. The success of the Roseanne revival has prompted other broadcast networks to pick up a wave of multicamera comedies in a larger push to program to middle America.
Roseanne, both in its rebooted season as in its original run, has never shied away from taking on topical and controversial subjects. The May 22 season finale set the stage to explore a larger debate about healthcare in America. Roseanne has not shied away from topical issues facing the working class. Like the spirit of the original run, which had a history of addressing larger political and social issues, the revival famously opened its new season with an episode that explored the country's divisive response to President Trump, whom Barr has publicly supported. The storyline between Roseanne and her sister, Jackie (Laurie Metcalf), was designed to reflect the debate among Trump's working-class base and spur a larger discussion.
The reboot also found itself under the microscope earlier this season when a one-off joke taking aim at fellow ABC comedies Black-ish and Fresh Off the Boat was blasted as being "reductive" and "belittling."
ABC's decision to cancel Roseanne leaves the network with a major hole on its schedule as the series was set to open its Tuesday lineup at 8 p.m. ABC now heads into the 2018-19 broadcast season without TV's No. 1 series and without prolific showrunner Shonda Rhimes, who exited last year for a deal with Netflix.
Sh*t jus' got real! Pusha T just dropped another diss track ... taking shots at Drizzy's childhood, alleging he's got a secret son and releasing a photo of a young Drake with blackface.
In the track, titled, "The Story of Adidon" -- mixed over the beat for Jay-Z's "The Story of O.J." -- Push raps, "You are hiding a child, let that boy come home, deadbeat motherf*****."
Pusha T drops Drake's alleged kid's name, saying, "Adonis is your son and he deserves more than an Adidas press run" and targets the baby mama, who he calls "Sophie" ... "Love that baby, respect that girl. Forget she's a porn star, let her be your world."
The new track is a response to Drake's "Duppy Freestyle" released earlier this week targeting Pusha T and Kanye.
Push touches on Drake's race too, saying, "Confused always felt you weren't black enough, afraid to grow it because your fro wasn't nap enough."
"The Story of Adidon" was dropped with artwork of a younger Drake with his face painted black ... a photo which we're told was untouched.
Cardi B released her sizzling video for "I Like It."
The video for the Latin-influenced jam was filmed in Miami, focusing on its colorful streets and vibrant night life. The song's contributors, Puerto Rico’s Bad Bunny and Colombia’s J Balvin, star in the video as well, soaking in Miami's club scene.
According to iHeartRadio, though most of the video was filmed months ago before Cardi was noticeably pregnant, the scenes of her in the red dress were shot a mere few weeks back.
Though many artists prefer to shoot club scenes in Miami's South Beach, the Invasion of Privacy emcee decided to veer off the beaten path and shoot in Little Havana's Ball & Chain.
"We take great pride when some of today's biggest stars show up at our historic venue in Little Havana," Ball & Chain owner Zack Bush told Miami.com in an e-mail. "For years we would hear about celebrities on South Beach, now the stars are venturing off the beaten Miami path to film and to hang and dance at this historic [place]."

The Gorillaz have officially announced that a new album called The Now Now, will be released this June.
The first fans heard that there was new music on the way came from the band's newly launched website, TheNowNow.tv, which features a teaser video of 2-D sitting with a guitar. Then, posters appeared at this weekend’s All Points East Festival in London which had the phrase “NO MORE UNICORNS ANYMORE"—the same phrase that recently appeared in artwork created by band cofounder Jamie Hewlett.
This will be the band's sixth studio album, following the release of their fifth outing, Humanz, which dropped last year. That album featured D.R.A.M., Vince Staples and more. Prior to that album, the band had't released a project in seven years, since 2010's The Fall (which was first released to fans then released worldwide in 2011).
Last year, Hewlett explained that they were planning to follow up Humanz quickly.'
“Usually we have a good five years break but this time we decided to keep going,” Hewlett said at the time. “I’m inventing a new style for the next Gorillaz album."
Gorillaz's new project, The Now Now drops on June 29.
Ariana Grande is releasing a new track with Nicki Minaj soon.
On Sunday evening (May 27), Grande delivered the sweetest surprise to her Arianators with the first listen of her fresh collab with the Queen rapper on a track called "The Light Is Coming."
In the preview clip above, Grande lip-syncs the lyrics to her sassy tell off, which opens to Minaj spitting bars like, "Why you have to make me go call up my side guy?/ Can't let an F-boy eff up my vibe/ Yo Ariana, come let me give you a high five." Over a light pattered beat, the songbird then soars in for the hook, singing, "the light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole."
Telling from the snippet alone, the dynamic duo, who have a history of delivering bangers together — "Get on Your Knees," "Bang Bang," "Side to Side" — sound as perfectly coordinated as ever.
The 21-second audio appears just weeks after the "No Tears Left to Cry" vocalist originally tweeted the title of the song on May 7 using inverted text.
In the minutes that followed the teaser, the 24-year-old chanteuse signaled the coming of two other songs from her anticipated fourth studio album, Sweetener — one confirmed as "God Is a Woman," the other presumably titled "The Last Judgement."
Sweetener is slated to release later this summer.
Justin Timberlake made hospital visits to the survivors of a school shooting that took place in Sante Fe, Texas last week.
On Friday morning (May 25), JT met 16-year-old Sarah Salazar, who was being treated for bullet wounds from the neck down to her thigh. The teen told ABC she tried hiding in a closet as the shooter opened fire into her class but to no avail — the May 18 incident left 10 people dead and 13 injured.
The teenager's mother, Sonia Lopez-Puentes, photographed and shared the endearing moment to her Facebook page, writing, "Justin Timberlake visited Sarah Salazar this morning and brought her a gift."
According to the Daily Mail, Timberlake, who was in the Texas area for his tour stop at the Houston Toyota Center Friday night, reportedly wore a Sante Fe Strong shirt and dedicated a live performance of "Until the End of Time" to the shooting victims just nights before.
Salazar recently underwent jaw surgery and is currently awaiting a shoulder replacement according to the GoFundMe page created to cover her medical expenses.
The suspected gunman, 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis, who allegedly conspired the slaughter with an AR-15-style rifle, shotgun, and pistol, is being held without bond on charges of capital murder, CNN reported.
