Sam Smith’s Cover of Coldplay’s “Fix You”

After a month of waiting, Sam Smith finally releases this Sunday July 5th, the emotional cover of Coldplay’s “Fix You” as part of the iHeartRadio Living Room Series. Smith recalled that after months of lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they found themselves at home singing the classic which reminded them of how much he loved this song. Through the lockdown he fell in love with singing once again and started creating many covers for songs that weren’t even his. Sam Smith says that even though he didn’t get tested, he was a hundred percent sure he got the disease and was staying at home recuperating with his loved one. On his twitter page we can see Smith posting the song and thanking Coldplay as he expresses “for writing such a beautiful song”. It is definitely amazing to see such talented artist as Sam Smith singing great classics with such a passion and emotion that makes the skin crawl, he just never ceases to amaze us.  Many of his fans are waiting patiently for his new album to released, which got pushed back due to the pandemic. The as-yet-untitled album has not yet been rescheduled, though he says it is still due this year.

    Why TikTok’s Chart Influence Hurts Artists

    To preface, I’m usually not one to defend the money-driven institutions that lie at the crux of popular art, whether it be fashion or music. But a worrying trend concerning a certain dancing and lip syncing app (I’m talking TikTok, of course) has made me question whether its unprecedented influence on the music industry is a particularly good thing. Sure, a few obscure artists have been propelled to stardom due to some viral audios, and decades-old hits have made their way back into the cultural consciousness due to the app–-but at what cost, exactly? As TikTok music dominates your feeds and shapes the weekly Billboard charts, it looks as if artists in the industry are paying the highest price.

    Lizzo Plays James Madison’s Crystal Flute at D.C. Concert

    During a break from her setlist of “The Special Tour”, the singer, rapper, and classically trained flutist took a moment onstage to reveal a literal gem loaned to her from the Library of Congress: James Madison’s centuries-old crystal flute. The fourth president of the United States had received the handmade instrument as a gift from France in 1813 in honor of his second inauguration. However, the heirloom had never once been played or heard by anyone’s ears, sitting in silent collection among 1,800 other flutes for over 200 years–until now.

The OCC reports that following the 48 hours in the chart week, just a “handful of units” separated the two singles, with “I’m Good (Blue)” still on top of the leaderboard. “Unholy” has taken over Tiktok as well.

    Why are all the Women in the Music Industry Beautiful?

    “You know Ed Sheeran is a good singer because even though he’s ugly he’s still famous.” This direct quote is one of the few specific things I remember being said in middle school. While I am not sure why Ed Sheeran’s talent or appearance was the topic of conversation that day, seven years later the quote has clearly stuck with me. Beyond it being a poignant representation of both a middle schooler’s humor and logic, it remains to be uncharacteristically truthful.
