While the ESPYs were going on last night, what else was on?
Welp, Skylar Diggins pulled off double duty as, in addition to surprising Drake, she starred on the previously recorded new episode of Nick Cannon‘s (revamped) ‘Wild ‘N Out’. Joining her as the episode’s guest performer was none other than Vic Mensa — a nice mainstream look for the rising Chicago artist. ICYMI (since you likely missed it), try the stream of the entire ep. below (which apparently also features a moment of twerking from Drake’s new friend, and nothing more.)
‘Drake & Blake’, Drake introduces Floyd Mayweather, “Honorable Mention”, “Side Pieces” with a surprise of Brian McKnight, Drake as Manny Pacquiao, Drake meets Skylar Diggins… All hilarious. (Except for #SterlingNeverLovedUs… kinda awk.)
What else would you do when you’re already atop the music world? Well, if you’re Pharrell… you drop a new album in less than a month of time. Sure, coming out a winner in the Grammys (for awards and head accessories) and earning rave reviews at the NBA All-Star Game is great and all, but why not a new album?
G I R L is announced late tonight via the trailer on I Am Other seen below (love these strings). The album will be out March 3rd, feature 10 tracks, with the lone preview being the universal hit “Happy”.
