Beyonce Has Released Her First Song In Over A Year

By Haley Brettschneider


Not only does the film King Richard tell the powerful story of Venus and Serena Williams but its soundtrack features Beyonce who hasn’t released a song in over a year. “Be Alive” opens with “It feels so good to be alive / Got all my family by my side / Couldn’t wipe this Black off if I tried / That’s why I lift my head with pride,” and makes reference to their hard work and struggle to succeed: “The path was never paved with gold / We worked and built this on our own.” Superstar artist asked herself if she could perform a song for the soundtrack. 

King Richard will be released on November 19th, 2021 and in the meantime we can enjoy the soundtrack to it featuring “Be Alive”.  

Taylor Swift Performs on ‘SNL’

By Haley Brettschneider


Taylor Swift stuns viewers as she performed her ten minute version of the song “All Too Well” on Saturday Night Live. Instead of singing two conventional songs, Swift chose to sing the entire ten minutes of “All Too Well”.  Swift just released her “Red” album which features her singing songs from the original album “Red” which she released a few years ago. This updated version contains some new pieces featuring artists such as Ed Sheeran, but the majority of the soundtrack contains past songs from the 2012 album. 

On Saturday Night Live, Swift featured her music video in the background which features actors Sadie Sink and Dylan O’Brien in a toxic relationship. The video capsizes on the lyrics of “All Too Well” as it depicts the two actors in a gut-wrenching breakup. Taylor Swift directed the fifteen minute short film which has created a craze over social media. Be sure to not only listen to the updated “Red” album but watch the short film and the Saturday Night Live performance.
