He released a new album just last month, but Drake is set to drop more music very soon. The Canadian rapper shared a lengthy video to his Instagram overnight announcing that he's set to release an EP titled Scary Hours 3 at midnight on Friday, meaning fans are kicking off their weekend with some fresh Drizzy. The Grammy winner said in the video that he wrote all of the tracks featured on the new EP in the last week and it comes five years after the first Scary Hours release which Drake dropped in 2018.

Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Paul McCartney are all in the running to be the next act to hold a residency at the MSG Sphere in Las Vegas. The multi-billion dollar venue, which opened in September, has been home to U2 in the last few weeks but bosses at the company are eyeing up big names to replace them. According to reports, Beyonce paid a visit to the innovative venue with her husband Jay Z to check out the stage, but organisers are also keen to see Lady Gaga and Beatles legend Macca welcome fans there, too. No names have yet been officially confirmed but U2 are scheduled to finish their current run of shows in February.

Taylor Swift's boyfriend Travis Kelcee has responded after the award-winning singer gave him a sweet shoutout at her show in Argentina recently. Taylor was performing her hit track Karma and switched up the lyrics to include Travis' team the Kansas City Chiefs in the song, which the crowd went crazy for. The athlete explained how he had an inkling his superstar girlfriend was going to mention him while performing on stage, but in the moment he admitted he still felt surprised, here's what we had to say.

The late Amy Winehouse's iconic debut album Frank is going to be re-released as a picture disc for the first time to mark its 20th anniversary. The album which was released in 2003, will be redistributed as a double vinyl with the original classic sleeve imagery for the first LP and the second will feature uncovered artwork of Amy taken in 2003. Amy's debut may not have been as big of a commercial and critical success as her follow-up album, Back to Black, which won a Grammy, but the record was still a success and featured her iconic singles Stronger Than Me and Take The Box. The Frank re-release will be out in February 2024.
