Global music superstars Black Eyed Peas rocked Expo 2020 Dubai’s Al Wasl Plaza on Tuesday evening, with a powerful performance that kept the audience on their feet throughout their setlist of mega-hits.

The Los Angeles-formed trio – will.i.am, Apl.de.Ap and Taboo – kicked off their dynamic show with Let’s Get It Started, continuing with Black Eyed Peas’ and will.i.am’s catalogue of hits, from Boom Boom PowRITMO (Bad Boys For Life)Mamacita and Pump It to Girl Like Me#thatPOWER, and Scream & Shout.

Tributes continued for comedian and writer Barry Cryer, who has died. A writer for comedy giants like The Two Ronnies, Bob Hope, Tommy Cooper and Morecambe and Wise, he was also a star of the airwaves and the stage in his own right, including on BBC radio panel shows like Just A Minute and I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue.

His son Bob Cryer said: “My father died peacefully, in good spirits and with his family around him.

Gold-certified alternative pop artist carolesdaughter—a.k.a. Thea Taylor—returns with a new single and music video entitled ‘Target Practice’ via Arista Records.

 
About the song and video, Thea commented, "I wrote ‘Target Practice’ as an anthem for the misfits. My mom always told me if you got made fun of in school, it meant you were going to do well in life—and this song is what I wish I could’ve said." 
 
The track’s soft acoustic guitar gives way to the hum of hard distortion as she asks, “Do you think I’m target practice? You’re not even on my axis!” She speaks directly to a generation of outsiders with clever lyrics like “So talk your shit and squash your bugs, while I read my books and do my drugs.” 

 

The accompanying music video collates Thea’s high school experience of being bullied at no less than five schools into a moment of empowerment. Inspired by the late 90’s and early 00’s Buffy The Vampire Slayer meets “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” she endures the malaise of class (complete with “How to Fit Into Society” scrawled on the blackboard) only to grab a black Fender Stratocaster and scream back over a power chord crunch in the gym—surrounded by goth cheerleaders, to boot.
 
carolesdaughter plans to hit the road with nothing, nowhere. This spring. The tour kicks off on April 21 at Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ, visits major markets coast-to-coast, and concludes at Irving Plaza in New York City on May 27.

 
‘Target Practice’ arrives on the heels of ‘My Mother Wants Me Dead,’ meanwhile, her breakthrough debut single “Violent” has amassed hundreds of millions of streams and is certified gold. It picked up plays at Radio 1 from Annie Mac, Mollie King’s ‘Best New Pop’ and Jack Saunders’ ‘Tune of the Week’. Plus further praise came from Sunday Times Culture, The Line of Best Fit, Wonderland, Spindle and an array of streaming highlights including the cover and #1 position in the notorious Misfits 2.0 playlist on Spotify.

Kawala are back and starting out 2022 with their exuberant new single ‘Jesse C’mon’, out now on EMI records.

A slice of vibrant, danceable pop, ‘Jesse C’mon’ sees the band layering their trademark harmonies and chiming guitars to create a sophisticated, yet instantly accessible song dealing with those people in the world who have a little issue with the truth:
