Welcome back to Don't Alert The Stans!
For this week’s episode, a blunt and honest review of Megan Thee Stallion’s debut album ‘Good News’ sets the wheels in motion with Nic and Sope expressing their disappointment at the lack of musical growth and the over-reliance of samples. Elsewhere, they examine the overall underwhelming roll out in which they feel has failed to be a true culmination of all the buzz she’s amassed in the last year.
Kicking off the news agenda this week is The Weeknd who has been unveiled as the headliner for next year’s Superbowl Halftime Show. It’s questioned whether he has the chops to command a stage of such stature, while questioning why the likes of Usher and P!nk haven’t been called to do this yet.
Next up is the ongoing legal entanglement between Scooter Braun and Taylor Swift. It has come to light that Braun has sold Swift’s catalogue to private equity firm Shamrock Capital for an estimated $300M.
Closing out the episode is the series of controversies a cluster of the UK’s most notable MC’s have encountered in the last week, with Eden & Nic choosing to focus on the allegations that state Dutchavelli is sexually involved with underage girls.
