While most graduates won’t be walking in graduation ceremonies, Spotify is celebrating with Spotify Yearbook, an exclusive collection of artist-curated playlists for the Class of 2020.

Megan Thee Stallion named her playlist “Class of Savages.” The Jonas Brothers named theirs “Class of XX,” the number 20 in roman numerals, and in honor of their newest single titled “XV.”

SELENA GOMEZ SPREADS HOPEFUL MESSAGE TO GRADUATES FROM IMMIGRANT FAMILIES – (05/26/2020)

Selena Gomez has shared a special message for graduates from immigrant families as commencements were cancelled due to coronavirus.

During the #Immigrad 2020 Virtual Commencement, a national celebration of students from immigrant families and supporters of immigrant rights,” the 27-year-old singer said they were all a part of the American story.

“I know that this is a virtual ceremony, but it is very real. And it’s very real to all the families and all of you and your communities. I want you guys to know that you matter. And that your experiences are a huge part of the American story,” Selena shared.

She continued, “When my family came here from Mexico they set into motion my American story, as well as theirs. I’m a proud third-generation American-Mexican, and my family’s journey and their sacrifices helped me get me to where I am today. Mine is not a unique story. Each and every one of you has a similar tale of becoming an American.”

“Regardless of where your family is from, regardless of your immigration status, you have taken action to earn an education, to make your families proud, and to open up your worlds,” Selena added. “I’m sending all of my love to you guys today and congratulations, and I hope that you guys are set off to be everything that you want to be.”

TAYLOR SWIFT FANS THINK NEW ‘KILLING EVE’ COVER IS HER GETTING BACK AT SCOOTER BRAUN – (05/26/2020)

Taylor Swift has shared a mysterious new cover of her track “Look What You Made Me Do,” which appeared on the latest episode of Killing Eve.

The version that appears on the BBC drama is being interpreted by fans as a way to get back at her rival and Big Machine label boss Scooter Braun. The version of the Reputation track is attributed to Jack Leopards and The Dolphin Club, a seemingly fake band or artist with no previous song credits. Fans speculate that the vocals on the song belong to Swift’s brother Austin, who once named his Twitter account “The Dolphin Club.”

A producer credit on the song is also given to Nils Sjoberg, Swift’s songwriting pseudonym.

Further cementing the secret credits for the song: a report published in February that had Swift approaching Killing Eve executive producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge at the Golden Globes in January to ask if Austin could sing on the show’s soundtrack. The Swift siblings and Antonoff had been photographed together in a studio late last year, leading to fan speculation that the track might have already been recorded by the time Swift reportedly put in the request with Waller-Bridge.

Fans think Swift recorded the song with her brother in order to avoid Braun and Big Machine from claiming any royalties from the song’s use on the show.

Swift has been open about her issues with Braun in the past, as well as her quest to get the full rights to her first six albums.
