Elon Musk has cancelled the Twitter deal. The deal was pulled because Musk cannot verify authentic Twitter accounts.

“My offer was based on Twitter’s SEC filings being accurate,” Musk previously said in a tweet. “Yesterday, Twitter’s CEO publicly refused to show proof of <5%. This deal cannot move forward until he does.”

A letter sent by the Telsa CEO’s legal team to Twitter on Friday said that the agreement was being “terminated” due to Twitter allegedly making “false and misleading representations” regarding “fake or spam accounts on Twitter’s platform.” Twitter’s stock price sunk following the statement, dropping 5.3 percent after the market closed.

Look out for Linebeck and the song Bed. The 4-piece dreamy power-pop band from Hamilton, ON formed right before the crazy pandemic. When the world stopped, they kept going writing songs and recording demos. The band draws inspiration from shoegaze, dream-pop, and post-punk bands. Influenced by Lennon-McCartney and Max Martin, Linebeck’s songwriting is full of intention but not lacking in honesty, once described by a fan as “a dreamy version of Linkin Park”.

You can check them out at Sneaky Dee’s in Toronto on July 28th.

Check out Jon Tyler Wiley and the track Want A Little More. You’ll love if your looking for something southern and anthemic with a blend of Americana. Think and updated Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty.

Before forming the band in 2019, Jon Tyler Wiley spent the better part of a decade as a guitarist for playing with Melodime, touring with Stephen Kellogg, and Sister Hazel.

Wiley says, “This song came to me while sitting in traffic in Washington DC. At the time, I was working for a music program in Bethesda, Maryland, where it would take me an hour to get there and three hours to get home due to rush hour. I was writing a lot of sad, “What am I doing with my life” songs, sitting on I-495 moving 7 miles per hour. I had these lyrics for months, but I wasn’t happy with the song itself until the guitar riff showed up. Playing all the instruments on the record was a fun challenge, but the recording the keyboards in this song were a joyous experience. It made the song fun, despite the desperate lyrics.”

The 24 year old hip-hop/R&B artist Cannon drops College Friends. A graduate from Boston College, he developed a sound in his dorm room with a group of friends.

A South Carolina native, now based in Brooklyn, Cannon says “when I graduated from college, I found myself worrying about whether I was sacrificing too much time chasing my goals to spend time with my friends or sacrificing too much time with my friends to chase my goals. I soon came to realize that in trying to be two places at once, I ended up nowhere. Part of the process of graduating and growing up for me has been learning how to decide where to allocate my time.”

Cannon’s debut single “Water Glass” earned over 7 million streams on Spotify and has performed as the opening act for Jon Bellion, Gavin DeGraw, and Hunter Hayes, and as a headliner at venues in Boston and New York. He has gained a significant following on TikTok, going viral for sampling his baby nephew and his broken laptop in a song, a video that Zane Lowe called “a moving and poignant tribute to an old friend.”
