Yoshi Flower releases the cover Good News by Mac Miller, the second track off the EP of covers Titled Ode.

Yoshi says, “Mac’s passing was the last straw. I remember the day I found out- I was making music with friends. We were devastated. In that moment the myth of the “Rock ‘n Roll Lifestyle” died, in my eyes.”

The EP is a collection of songs from artists that have passed on. Yoshi took his time, he gave a classic rendition of each song, turning the impossible into the possible. It could be the best tribute EP out now.

“and forever on I will pay respect these artists, and all of the amazing contributors to our respective worlds, the ones who burned too bright too fast. The ones that got away before the conversation of recovery could take hold”

Beyoncé is removing a lyric from her new song “Heated” following criticism from disability advocates and users on social media. “Spazzin’ on that ass, spazz on that ass”.

The track, which appears on her seventh studio album, “Renaissance,” was called out for being “ableist” for the singer’s use of the word “spaz.”

The term “spastic” is often used in the medical field when referring to someone with cerebral palsy, a disability that makes it difficult for someone to control their muscles.

“Beyoncé’s commitment to storytelling musically and visually is unparalleled, as is her power to have the world paying attention to the narratives, struggles and nuanced lived experience of being a Black woman,” the author of the article, Hannah Diviney, wrote.

“But that doesn’t excuse her use of ableist language – language that gets used and ignored all too often. Language you can be sure I will never ignore, no matter who it comes from or what the circumstances are.”

Big tech found a way to get the biggest bang for the buck. It’s to pay publishers and record labels lump-sum licensing advances (or so-called ‘buy-out’ deals) rather than sharing a proportion of revenue for every listen/use of music on their platforms.

After years of scrutiny, Facebook abandoned the ancient lump sum practice and accepted the ‘revenue-share’ model for user-generated video content. Video creators that use licensed music in videos over 60 seconds long on Facebook will receive a 20% share of any advertising revenue. The 80% will be split between music rights holders and Meta. Influencers with sizable followings will benefit and reap some rewards.
