Harry Styles postpones Love on Tour to 2021

On 11 June, Harry Styles took to his Instagram to announce that he would be postponing the North American leg of “Love on Tour” to 2021 due to the on-going coronavirus pandemic. Back in April, the singer postponed European dates to 2021 for the very same reason.

“This summer we were excited to be bringing Love On Tour to North America. However, due to the ongoing threat from Covid-19 we have been forced to reschedule these dates to next summer. The well-being of my crew, and all the fans around the world will always hold top priority. I can’t wait to see you all out on the road, as soon as it’s safe to do so. We are in a moment of necessary change and growth in the world. I will be using this time to listen, and to educate myself on how I can help more in the fight for justice and equal rights for all in the future. I hope that you will take the time to do the same. Treat people with kindness. I love you all,” posts Harry.

“Love on Tour” kick-off was scheduled for 26 June with the concert in Philadelphia. Instead, Harry will start his tour on 14 August 2021 in Tacoma (Washington, USA) and conclude on 31 October 2021 in New York City.

Jesse McCartney & Dream Street pay tribute to Chris Trousdale

Jesse McCartney and his former band Dream Street reunited online on 11 June (Thursday) to pay musical tribute to Chris Trousdale. Former bandmates performed “It Happens Every Time” in the late singer’s memory.

You can watch the performance at Jesse McCartney’s official YouTube website.

Chris Trousdale passed away on 2 June due to the complications from COVID-19. He would have been 35 years old on 11 June.

Dream Street was formed in 1999 and their career was short-lived as they parted ways in 2002 following a legal dispute. The group released two studio albums – “Dream Street” and “The Biggest Fan” – and all members went their separate ways to pursue solo careers.

 

Chloe x Halle release Ungodly Hour

American R&B duo Chloe x Halle released their second studio album “Ungodly Hour” on 12 June (Friday). The record received highly positive reviews and music critics praised the duo for their vocal delivery, maturity, artistic growth and album’s cohesiveness.

“We wanted to show our sensual side because we are growing as young women, but we still kept it classy and cute. It was just really fun for us to do that. We also wanted to start dancing this era, and just something really simple. And it makes us so happy to see everyone doing that dance on TikTok,” says Chloe.

The album features 13 tracks, including “Catch Up,” “Do It” and “Forgive Me.” The last song was released as a third single from the album on 12 June.

You can listen to “Forgive Me” at the duo’s official YouTube website.

“Ungodly Hour” is available for purchase in music stores and for streaming at digital platforms (Apple Music, Tidal, Spotify and Amazon Music).
