The Chainsmokers!

The Chainsmokers!

  • By Dennis Petrone

From underground rock youth to dancefloor buzz, the Chainsmokers have rocketed from earth to the stars in just four short years – thanks in part to that now everyday vernacular, then still novel, the hashtag: As in their first viral hit #Selfie. Once considered a bro band duo, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggat have squarely risen to EDM-pop royalty.

“Don’t Let Me Down” featuring vocals by Daya won a Grammy last year for Best Dance Recording and “Closer” (“So baby pull me closer in the backseat of your Rover”) became their first number one hit on Billboard’s Hot 100. Is it worth noting that Forbes recently estimated their earning this year at a cool $45 mill? So when the Chainsmokers aren’t winning awards, owning the charts and cropping up in teen television hits like Riverdale, what are they doing?

Normally touring but this month they’re taking up residency in Las Vegas at XS and the Encore Beach Club. It may not be as sexy as getting away from your parents by staying in “Paris” but it’s definitely hot, hot, hot. “If they came to rage it doesn’t matter if it’s 200 people or 20,000 people,” said Taggart in a recent Billboard interview. “The vibe, the time of year, the venue, the crowd – it really is so unpredictable.”

Nicki Minaj



Our Pinkprint princess has come for the throne. With her fourth album entitled Queen, Nicki Minaj pops off her Trinidadian twang in a majestic display of all the things we adore about her — her sass, her style, and her lyrical wit.

This album ventures beyond the usual pop sound for more of a mellow R&B vibe with its opening track Ganja Burn. Fans will find her signature sweetness in endearing ballads like Come See About Me and Run&Hide, but Minaj’s fierce edge cuts straight through the bullsh*t as she impresses with her vocal acrobatics heard on tracks like Barbie Dreams, Chun-Li, and Majesty. But LLC is notably the album’s crowning achievement with a flow so stellar that even her haters must bow to this artist’s technique being so deliciously on fleek.

Queen boasts a hefty serving of nineteen tracks featuring the greatest artists of rap royalty, including Labrinth, Eminem, Lil Wayne, Ariana Grande, The Weekend, Swae Lee, Future, and Minaj’s personal idol Foxy Brown. Despite such heavy hitters, it’s Minaj herself who reigns supreme in this rap game with her effervescent acerbic tongue spitting out some of the most inventive and unlikely rhymes. Nicki Minaj is at her best when she’s being playful, and her album Queen proves that in spades. The NICKIHNDRXX Tour kicks off in 2019. Long live the Queen.
