Hope Tale - "Girl Eats Sun"  EP

Hope Tale – “Girl Eats Sun”  EP

Today, London-based up and comer Hope Tala continues to build the heat around her name with the reveal of her stunning new EP, Girl Eats Sun, featuring standout Aminé-collaboration, Cherries.”

LISTEN TO GIRL EATS SUN HERE!

Girl Eats Sun solidifies Hope Tala as an artist set to do big things in 2021. With her unique blend of R&B and bossa nova, Hope Tala has crafted a sound that already feels recognizable to her, and there is plenty more on the way.

“Since I started writing music, I’ve used fruit imagery; I’ve always been inspired by the Garden of Eden and the story of Adam and Eve,” Hope Tala states, speaking on ‘Cherries.’ “I think of ‘Cherries’ as being a really corporeal song –  there’s a lot of lyrical content about how the body portrays feeling and emotion, and when I was writing it I used the symbol of cherries as my focal point to help me understand where these two worlds – material and emotional – collide.”

With EP track “All My Girls Like To Fight” currently spinning across BBC Radio 1 as Introducing Track Of The Week, Hope Tala has had a prolific couple of months, returning after a year away to reveal “All My Girls Like To Fight” and “Crazy” to widescale plaudits from Billboard, Refinery29, MTV, Wonderland, The Line Of Best Fit, NOTION, DORK and CLASH, as well as featuring on key Spotify playlists Pollen & Alternative R&B. Girl Eats Sun is the follow up to Hope Tala’s stellar EP Sensitive Soul, a project acclaimed by areas such as Rolling Stone, Vogue and more and featuring Hope Tala’s breakthrough single “Lovestained,” a track which has racked up over 10 million streams since last year. 

“At the core of ‘Girl Eats Sun’ is an assertion of confidence and boldness,” Hope Tala explains, speaking on Girl Eats Sun. “The title is a paraphrase of ‘if you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen’ – as the girl eating the sun I’m daring and fearless. I chose this title because I feel as if the songs and stories on this project are more vivid and inventive than anything I’ve released thus far, and I’ve pushed my sound in different, exciting directions.”

Now represented by Dina Sahim and Wassim “SAL” Slaiby at SAL&CO (The Weeknd, Doja Cat, Brandy, Bryson Tiller), Hope Tala is ending 2020 with a flourish. Look out for more in 2021.

Apple’s Newest Products

By Hannah DiPilato

On Tuesday, Apple introduced the newest iPhone as well as the HomePod mini. The new generation of products put an emphasis on the new 5G speed and the mini version of the iPhone 12.

The new iPhone 12 comes in models including the original iPhone 12 as well as Pro, Pro Max and Mini models. The iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Mini run on the less expensive side, while the iPhone 12 Max and iPhone 12 Max Pro are a bit more costly. 

The new iPhone is 11% thinner, 15% smaller and 16% lighter compared to the iPhone 11. The iPhone 12 features a 6.1 inch super retina display and the iPhone 12 Mini’s super retina display is 5.4 inches. Both phones have 4x better drop resistance, which many iPhone users have complained about in the past, as well as having more splash and spill resistance. The two phones come in five different color finishes: blue, green, red, black, and white. 

The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max only come in four finishes but have more features for the money. The two phones feature a 12-megapixel telephoto lens which the iPhone 12 and mini do not have. The Pro and Pro Max also feature a stainless steel body while the other phones have an aluminum and glass design. The iPhone 12 Pro Max is also supposed to have the best battery life, with 12 hours of streaming. 

All of the phones feature a 5G speed which is useful for faster streaming and downloading. Apple designed the phone to have the most 5G bands of any phone, so that 5G is available in more places. The new phone design also allows many apps to use 5G without using too much battery life. However, when 5G isn’t needed, the phone automatically switches to LTE to save power. These speeds are meant to help provide better service in heavier populated areas, as well as allowing for better streaming and downloading of videos on cellular. 

The cameras of the phones feature better options for capturing memories at night. The Wide and Ultra Wide cameras have Night mode to bring in a higher level of detail and color. Apple also improved taking video in low light as well as Night mode Timelapse. This allows the camera of the iPhone 12 models to work at any time of day or night. 

Apple also released the HomePod mini, which starts at $99. It’s only 3.3 inches tall but features 360-degree audio that gives a booming sound for its size. If you buy multiple speakers they can connect around the house for an around the home sound system. Two speakers paired in the same room create left and right sound channels for an immersive sound. The speakers also use Siri to play any music or podcast you desire and it can recognize up to six voices. You can also intercom to other speakers around the house. 

The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are available for pre-order on October 16 while the iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro Max and HomePod mini are available for pre-order on November 6. For more information on the new product check out Apple’s website.

Rosie O’Donnell × Michael Cohen

By Althea Champion

Michael Cohen, former attorney for President Donald Trump, released the first episode of his podcast, “Mea Culpa,” yesterday. The episode features Rosie O’Donnell, who discusses the attacks from Donald Trump she braved over the years, and why she reached out to Cohen when he was imprisoned.

The release of this podcast comes in the latter half of a three-year sentence, which he was granted medical furlough from on May 20, citing, “medical conditions that might be worsened by the virus’s spread in prison,” according to Maggie Haberman, William K. Rashbaum and Nicole Hong of the New York Times.

More than two years after Cohen took a plea deal in 2018, admitting guilt to eight counts of financial crimes in federal court, “Mea Culpa” recounts his experience working for Trump.

The prospect of parole had been complicated by what was the prospective publication of Cohen’s tell-all memoir.

According to Benjamin Weiser and Alan Feuer of the New York Times, Cohen was asked to sign a document that would have allowed him to stay at home, but would have concurrently disallowed him to finish and publish his book. When he refused to sign it, he was sent back to prison.

More recently, Weiser and Feuer reported that, “a federal judge ruled that the decision to return Mr. Cohen to custody amounted to retaliation by the government and ordered him to be released again into home confinement.”

It is now that he is back home to serve the rest of his prison sentence that this episode is released not more than a week after his book, “Disloyal: A Memoir” hit markets.

“Trumpism is a disease of the mind, every bit as virulent as COVID, only the host is a willing participant, in his or her own demise,” said Cohen in the episode’s introduction. “Trumpism insidiously preys upon the psychological makeup of the individual, probing the moral compass for weakness, and I was its patient zero… So this podcast will serve as my penance.”

The line includes 20 makeup products and accessories, available in a variety of shades and colors. Items can be purchased on the Rare Beauty website, as well as online and in stores at Sephora.

Along with the makeup line, Rare Beauty also established the Rare Impact Fund to support the mental health of the brand’s community, employees and partners.

Tate has received early praise from a variety of publications with TheInterns.net claiming she is, “going to be one of the hottest names in music” while Idolator voted her one of 40 artists to watch in 2020. E! included her as one of 15 newcomers you need to know. She has also garnered early press from Fader, i-D, Wonderland, NME, Young Hollywood, ET, Billboard, & more.

Tate launched her YouTube channel and her “Create with Tate” music series where she has been consistently releasing original music (check out some here). In just over a year, she has over 2.4 million subscribers and over 230 million video views on YouTube and has over 450 million combined on demand streams to date.

Naz “ItsNastyNaz” Saleh

TikTok, a phone app allowing users to share fun videos of singing, dancing and skits, has taken the world by storm, and Naz “Itsnastynaz” Saleh is its megastar.

Saleh, or “Itsnastynaz” on TikTok, was a completely ordinary fast food worker yet a complete anomaly. He was born on April 27, 1997, in Bronx, New York, and raised by his Yemeni-descendant parents looking for a better life for their kids. When he turned 12, he started working 12 hours per day, seven days per week. Saleh hit rock bottom when excessive bullying made him drop out of high school, but things changed.

Saleh went from working in fast food to being a man who enjoys all luxuries of life, but what made Naz Saleh who he is today?

It all started when Saleh was watching a YouTube video and a Musical.ly ad popped up. He saw the famous Baby Ariel. The video made him laugh and think he could do it even better than she could if he gave it a try. That was the turning point in his life. He started performing more skits with his brother in his workplace. He became an overnight success when the third video he uploaded was viewed 5 million times, and it didn’t stop there. The video spread like wildfire and was featured on news channels internationally.

His audience skyrocketed to over 6 million followers. He was awarded the “Popular Creator” badge by TikTok after his videos broke the internet and were viewed between 100 million and 350 million times.

That’s when he quit his 84-hour-per-week job to focus full time on his TikTok career. He now sits at 13 million followers.

Saleh is now known as “The Most Generous Man in New York” after filming himself giving food and money to homeless people. His videos also caught the attention of the government, giving some of those homeless people the option to go to rehab. Many said goodbye to their previous lives and moved toward a path of happiness.

Following his quick ascent, Saleh signed deals with iconic brands such as What Do You Meme? and Fashion Nova. He even received sponsorship deals from apps on the Apple App Store. He went from working in fast food to making seven figures and driving luxury cars all in a day’s work.

Though he has found success on TikTok, life isn’t always easy for Saleh. He receives many hateful comments online.

When asked how he deals with hateful comments, Saleh said, “Receiving so much hate can be heart-breaking and really demotivating. It used to have really bad effects on my mindset and my happiness until I realized making skits, helping people and making others happy is my safe place, and no one can make me feel bad about that.”

He admits sudden fame can be a bit overwhelming, but Saleh tries to remain positive, using his power to spread as much love and happiness as he can.

New RR Ghost

In autumn this year, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars will make an historic announcement in launching new Ghost. This product follows the first Goodwood Ghost, which became the most successful motor car in the marque’s 116-year history.

· First of four animated films offering insight into the substance underpinning new Ghost goes live

· Post Opulence identified as emerging design movement defined by reduction and substance

· Podcast series exploring design and engineering philosophy of new Ghost available now

More than six years ago, a team of luxury intelligence specialists, designers, engineers and craftspeople assembled to begin development of the new Rolls-Royce Ghost. Like the first Goodwood Ghost, launched in 2009, this collective would work obsessively to ensure that New Ghost would hold its own place in the Rolls-Royce portfolio and represent a unique set of client values.

Since the introduction of Ghost, which became the most successful Rolls-Royce in history, the marque’s unique proximity its clients afforded the team access to a large body of information. It revealed the divergent interests, opinions and changing taste patterns within Ghost clients’ appreciation of luxury. This primary research allowed them to create a product myopically focussed on the requirements of these remarkable men and women. These insights were what informed the designers, engineers and craftspeople at Rolls-Royce as they moved into the development phase of the highly progressive new Ghost.

As with all primary research conducted by the marque’s specialists, these experts were also asked to present their findings. In this short film, Rolls-Royce shares some of these insights to demonstrate the underlying substance of the highly progressive new Ghost ahead of its official unveiling in autumn this year.

The series begins with Rolls-Royce Designer Henry Cloke, who identified an emerging aesthetic defined by purity and minimalism, internally codenamed Post Opulence. Cloke says, “We found that Ghost clients sought objects that are effortlessly, almost instinctively exceptional. They rejected busy details and flash gimmicks, instead seeking extremely high quality, thoughtfully designed pieces that stand up to the most intense scrutiny. This philosophy defined new Ghost’s minimalist design treatment.”

The marque elected to use the increasingly popular medium of animated illustrations to convey these insights. Renowned illustrator, Charlie Davis, was chosen to cohesively and beautifully represent these findings in a fashion that befits the highly progressive new Ghost.

In addition to these insights presented in animation form, a series of five podcasts have been launched that reveal the marque’s findings, as well as insights into the underlying material and engineering substance of new Ghost in long form. Hosted by Johanna Agerman Ross, Curator of Twentieth Century and Contemporary Furniture and Product Design at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the podcasts are available on AppleGoogleSpotify and Deezer.

Chris Porritt × Rimac Automobili 

Rimac Automobili has appointed former Aston Martin Chief Engineer, VP of Engineering at Tesla and lead at Apple’s Special Projects Group, Chris Porritt, to the role of Chief Technology Officer. Chris will report directly to founder and CEO, Mate Rimac, with focus on future Rimac projects.

With a career spanning more than three decades, Chris has overseen the development of a number of bespoke performance and electric vehicles. During his 16 years at Aston Martin, he was Chief Engineer for the hand-built, limited production One-77 hypercar and V12 Vantage Zagato.

In 2013, Chris moved to California to become VP of Engineering at Tesla and then Apple, where he held a senior role within the Special Projects Group. His combined experience of high-end supercar development at Aston Martin, engineering electric vehicles at Tesla and his race-car enthusiasm, make him the perfect addition to the Rimac team. Chris joins Rimac Automobili from Apple. In addition to his professional journey, Chris spends his spare weekends and any free time building and racing his vintage race cars.

Mate Rimac, Founder and CEO, Rimac Automobili said: “We have started out in a country which is not  known for developing cars. We learnt so much through trial and error as it was difficult to attract people from other countries, making the process challenging but exciting. I can not imagine what our journey would have been like and how far along we would be now if we had Chris with us from the early days. I had concerns that people with great industry experience would not be a fit for our culture and company spirit. However, as a car enthusiast through and through, who gets the “hands dirty” himself, Chris fit right in from the first moment. We share the same mindset: we want to develop cars that raise the bar, are fun and great quality. I can’t wait to see what we will be able to create together.”

Chris Porritt, Chief Technology Officer, Rimac Automobili, said: “The opportunity to join Rimac Automobili is an engineer’s dream. Since nearly every key component is designed and built in-house by Rimac, this gives us freedom to create something that’s unlike anything else that has been done before in the Hypercar world. Rimac is the perfect place to use my combined experience in the engineering of supercars at Aston Martin and the EV engineering experience I gained in California. What the team has already achieved with the development of C_Two thus far is phenomenal, and I look forward to guiding the engineering development of future Rimac products that will push the envelope of performance.”

This year is a crucial period for the launch of Rimac’s latest all-electric hypercar, codenamed C_Two, as the prototypes are built, tested and crashed for global homologation. The 150 production examples of the new car will be hand-built on a new production line in Croatia, beginning in 2021. All major systems and components for the C_Two have been developed and built in-house by Rimac Automobili.

The Rimac C_Two will deliver a 0-100km/h time of <2 seconds and a top speed of 258mph in final production form. These performance figures have been achieved through development of the original C_Two concept and subsequent prototypes. In parallel with the development of the C_Two, the Rimac Automobili business has continued to scale up, with Porsche increasing its ownership stake in the business to 15.5% and Hyundai Motor Group investing 80M EUR into the business. These latest announcements join a long list of already established partners of Rimac, including Koenigsegg, Automobili Pininfarina and Aston Martin.
