The Oscars viewership was similar to last year, with around 16 million viewers tuning in, making it the second-lowest rated telecast.

The Oscars ratings have been a topic of much discussion and scrutiny over the years, as the annual ceremony is one of the most-watched televised events in the world. However, in recent years, the ratings for the show have been on a decline, leading many to question the reasons behind this trend.

One of the factors that have contributed to the decline in ratings is the changing viewing habits of audiences. With the rise of streaming services and the proliferation of on-demand content, viewers have more options than ever before, which has led to a fragmentation of the audience. Additionally, many people have become disenchanted with the Oscars due to the lack of diversity and inclusion in the nominees and winners, which has led to boycotts and protests. CONTINUE READING

Nikki White, a Canadian singer and songwriter, describes her music as having a dark pop sound with a message, and her latest single, “Fairweather Friends,” is no exception. The song was written in collaboration with Jordyn Kane and Aaron Blackmar during a session in Los Angeles, where White was inspired by the phrase “fairweather friends” from a conversation with her boyfriend. The accompanying music video was directed by Alexander Sworik and was shot in White’s hometown with a loose plan and lots of energy. White draws inspiration from female musicians such as Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, Debbie Harry, and Amy Winehouse, and hopes that her music will help break down stigmas surrounding mental health issues. White has also supported several non-profit organizations, including NEDA, Project Heal, Women for Women International, Eating Disorder Foundation of Canada, and Hopes Garden. Throughout 2023, White plans to release more singles in the coming months.

SunMan has just dropped their latest track, “Bad For My Health“, and it’s an electrifying pop anthem. With its intricate instrumentation and attention to detail, this song showcases the power of self-discovery in a way that’s both catchy and profound.

Comprised of three 21-year-olds, Luca Paterson-Jones (vocals and songwriting), Zac Hasenfuss (guitar and production), and Niclaus Duvenhage (keys and production), SunMan came together in high school over their shared love of music. As they continued to experiment and refine their sound, they ultimately decided to put all of their efforts into the band.

After releasing their debut single “Gone Electric” in 2021, SunMan followed it up with the slower, broodier “Left Here For Dead”. And now, their debut EP “Love and Other Accidents” (2022) is available to stream on Apple Music in Spatial Audio. The EP takes a nostalgic approach to modern rock, with Paterson-Jones’ unique and light timbre shining through, and stylistic elements from multiple genres woven in.

But it’s “Bad For My Health” that’s sure to capture your attention. This track is a testament to the power of music to inspire self-discovery and growth, and SunMan’s ability to craft a powerful, memorable pop anthem.

If you’re searching for love this new year, you might want to check out Michael Cappetto‘s indie pop rock single, “Where Are You My Love.” As a New Jersey-based artist, Cappetto released the track in mid-January, and it tackles the concept of true love being a rare find while also lamenting past unsuccessful relationships. The song is filled with longing and modern-day anxiety, making Cappetto’s vocals a perfect fit.

This is Cappetto’s second original single release, with the first being “You’re Just Not The One” that came out in 2021. Both tracks share comparable themes and styles that showcase Cappetto’s vocal range as he sings about lost love. However, “Where Are You My Love” is more about personal growth and hope for the future while also creating an idealized image of a perfect partner. On the other hand, “You’re Just Not The One” exudes internal bitterness and has a softer delivery. CONTINUE READING
