Bizarrap is at it again, as his latest collaboration with Duki, “Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 50,” tops the Billboard Argentina Hot 100 chart (dated Nov. 26). The track tops the tally after its No. 11 debut the week prior. It’s the DJ and producer’s seventh No. 7, while Duki secures his third.

As “Vol. 50” arrives at the summit, it sends Manuel Turizo’s “La Bachata” to the runner-up slot after its 11-week reign, the longest domination in 2022, and the fifth-most overall.

Meanwhile, Rosalía’s “Despechá” drops 2-3 and Bizarrap and Quevedo’s “Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 52” moves 3-4 (the song ruled for eight consecutive weeks starting the July 16-dated recap.) Plus, La Joaqui’s “Dos Besitos,” featuring Salas and Gusty DJ, advances to the top five with a 9-5 ascent.

Elsewhere, Miranda’s “Don” scores the Greatest Gainer of the week as the song surges 79-40. It’s the group’s highest-charting title since its first chart entry in September 2020.

One ranking below, Emilia’s Underground” debuts at No. 40 as the Hot Shot Debut of the week.

Further, four other songs debut this week: Pablo Alborán and Maria Becerra’s “Amigos” joins at No. 43; Trinidad Cardona, Davido and Aisha’s World Cup anthem “Hayya Hayya (Better Together)” opens at No. 47; while Quevedo secures his sixth entry with “Punto G” at No. 78.

This Studio Is Removing Kanye West Tattoos for Free

Have some Kanye West ink you’ve been regretting in recent months? Fear not, because a tattoo-removal studio in England is helping you out by removing any Ye-inspired body art for free.

Naama Studios made the announcement last month, amid Ye’s slew of antisemitic remarks. “Yeezy come, yeezy go,” the London-based company cleverly captioned a photo that reads, “We’ll remove your Kanye tattoos for free.”

The studio followed up with another video actually removing a tattoo of West, captioning the clip, “When you have a tattoo inspired by someone you admire and they end up making headlines for all the wrong reasons… at NAAMA we offer an empowering, empathetic, high-tech tattoo clearing experience. If you want a change, we’re here to help.”

Ye’s latest controversy surrounded an appearance on alt-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ InfoWars talk show on Thursday (Dec. 1), where the rapper praised Adolf Hitler and Nazis. “Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler,” he said. “How about that one?”

The Yeezy designer doubled down on his thoughts later, when Jones noted that he didn’t like Nazis. When the camera started panning away to a commercial break, Ye is heard saying into the microphone, “I like Hitler.”

Jones then told Ye that he has a “bit of a Hitler fetish going on,” to which the rapper replied, “It’s not a fetish. I just like information.”

“I don’t like the word ‘evil’ next to Nazis,” Ye later said, undeterred by Jones’ discomfort. “I love Jewish people, but I also love Nazis.” Later in the interview, Ye reiterated that it’s “time to promote love” by declaring, “I do love Hitler. I do love the Zionists.”

Wanda June Home is getting festive for the holidays. Miranda Lambert added several holiday pieces to her popular home line sold exclusively at Walmart.

The newly added items include dessert plates, mugs, place mats, table runners, stemless wine glasses, throw pillows and more featuring cute little holiday phrases such as “Naughty Is the New Nice” and “Santa I Can Explain.”

That’s really the heart of my Wanda June Home brand,” says Lambert. “The products are a physical representation of a long line of beautiful memories with amazing women. I am thrilled to launch Wanda June Home with Walmart where my grandpa was a greeter back in the day and where I’ve shopped all my life.”

Wanda June Home features more than 80 kitchen, bar, tabletop and home décor items priced from $12.97-$170, although most of the pieces are under $30. This inaugural collection is designed to mix, match and collect, featuring tabletop essentials inspired by Lambert’s own Southwestern retro farm kitchen, such as the Vintage Stripe Porcelain Dish Set ($39.97), fun and feisty barware, including the Saucy Sippers Stainless Steel Stemless Set ($20.98), and home décor that features Lambert’s take on Southern charm.

Here Are the Biggest Music NFTs in November: Indie Artists Take Spotlight in Shock Month for Crypto

November 2022 in the crypto world will forever be marked by the collapse and bankruptcy of FTX — formerly the second-largest crypto exchange. The shockwave rippled through every inch of the Web3 ecosystem, even dragging Coachella into the collateral damage with up to $1.5 million of Coachella NFTs paralyzed on the FTX exchange.

Unsurprisingly, NFT volumes are down across the board. OpenSea’s volume dipped to just $253 million — the lowest in almost 18 months. Across the ten biggest music NFT projects tracked by Billboard in November, sales volume is down 72% in ETH terms (585.2 ETH) and down 78% in dollar terms ($743,181) compared to a strong October.

While November lacked any large Web3 music project launch, the independent scene in Web3 took the spotlight. — one of the leading platforms for independent music NFTs — saw a record number of drops as well as record new wallets and active collectors (although pure dollar sales are still well off the highs). Meanwhile, several independent artists generated large sales volume through self-released projects. For that reason, seven of the top ten music projects last month came from fully independent Web3 native artists.

Based on analysis of sales data from 19 different NFT platforms, independent releases combined with secondary sales volume on OpenSea, here are the 10 biggest-selling music NFTs and collections in November 2022.

1/ Deafbeef
Monthly trading volume: 205 ETH ($260,350 at month-end conversion rate)
Primary sales (Nov.): N/A
Secondary sales: 205 ETH
Drop date: March 2021

Deafbeef is a vintage synth project with a twist. The entire collection is ‘generative’, which means the music was created by an algorithm, and coded into existence on a 10-year old computer by musician Deafbeef.

Released back in March 2021, the collection is considered one of the most important early projects among crypto collectors. Minted straight to the Ethereum blockchain at the moment of creation, it represents an experimental artform only possible through Web3. These rare items are often referred to as “grails” and thought of like art pieces. There were only two sales in November — one at 30 ETH ($38,100) and one at 175 ETH ($222,250) but that was enough to take the top spot.

2/ KINGSHIP – “Key Cards” / “Kurt the Roadie”
Monthly trading volume: 127 ETH ($161,290)
Primary sales (Nov.): N/A
Secondary sales: 127 ETH
Drop date: May 2022

The Bored Ape supergroup put together by Universal’s Web3 label 10:22PM stays in the top ten for the sixth month running. The project triggered a wave of new trading activity in November after dropping a free NFT — Kurt the Roadie — to all holders. Kurt is an animated flamingo character, hired by the band to join them on tour, according to the story. The roadie also grants holders access to the “tower” and will fly them to the “floating villa” in the elaborate KINGSHIP map.

The main KINGSHIP collection generated 61 ETH ($77.4k) in volume while the new Kurt the Roadie collection generated 66 ETH ($83.8k) as fans swapped and traded their favorite traits and rare features, some of which were designed by James Fauntleroy — the Grammy-winning producer working on the music for KINGSHIP alongside Hitboy.

3/ Violetta Zironi – “Moonshot” / “Gypsy Heart”
Monthly trading volume: 56 ETH ($71,120)
Primary sales (Nov.): 30 ETH
Secondary sales: 26 ETH
Drop date: April 2022

Singer-songwriter Violetta Zironi continues to be one of the most consistent artists in Web3, generating 25 ETH volume in November for her Moonshot project — a collection of 2,500 NFTs which features four songs accompanied by unique artwork by her father, a former Disney animator.

Zironi’s first collection sold out back in April, but she returned in November with a new project called Gypsy Heart and sold 500 early mint passes at 0.06 ETH each. Early holders will lock in a discount before the project goes live to the public in January 2023.

4/ TK – “Eternal Garden”
Monthly trading volume: 36.8 ETH ($46,736)
Primary sales (Nov.): 36.16 ETH
Secondary sales: 0.727 ETH
Drop date: November 29

Singer-songwriter TK is among a new wave of independent artists building their early career through Web3. In November, he launched an ambitious collection of 700 audiovisual NFTs called Eternal Garden. It features 7 tracks with an emotional R&B feel, each with a different rarity, revealed only when the sale ends. At the time of writing, TK has almost sold out, with 670 sales.

Like many independent artists, TK laid the groundwork over the past year through several smaller NFT drops, building a strong community of collectors before launching a bigger project. The Eternal Garden drop is the largest collection to use’s new Sound Protocol which allowed TK to host the drop on his own custom website built with a Web3 tool called Bonfire.

5/ Mija – “Desert Trash” & “Acoustic Album lol”
Monthly trading volume: 30.5 ETH ($38,735)
Primary sales (Oct.): 12.5 ETH
Secondary sales: 18 ETH
Drop date: November 2

Independent artist Mija embarked on a Web3 blitz in November, dropping 18 songs as NFTs on from her 2020 album “Desert Trash” and a new unreleased record “Acoustic Album lol”. Like TK, Mija has fully embraced the Web3 space, often making her music available exclusively on NFT platforms first.

Although Mija’s mints were priced relatively low — at approximately 0.01 ETH ($12) or often free — the sheer volume of music helped her generate 12.5 ETH in primary sales and a further 18 ETH in secondary volume. Mija also used some guerilla marketing tactics to capture attention such as airdropping music NFTs to Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin’s crypto wallet and minting a song about a pseudonymous music collector known only as Hamburglar.

6/ Matt Cooper – Something Beautiful
Monthly trading volume: $31,600
Primary sales (Oct.): $31,600
Secondary sales: N/A
Drop date: October 6

Fresh from launching its new music rights marketplace, Royal allows collectors to earn streaming revenue alongside the artists.

Matt Cooper issued 400 tokens of “Something Beautiful,” each offering a 0.0812% share of future streaming revenue, while 8 ‘diamond’ holders will unlock 2.187% of streaming royalties per token and a virtual meet and greet. The exclusive diamond token is currently changing hands for an average $1,499.

7/ Rae Isla – “Rocks”
Monthly trading volume: ~27 ETH ETH ($34,290)
Primary sales (Oct.): ~27 ETH
Secondary sales: N/A
Drop date: November 28

Rae Isla spent the last year dedicating herself to Web3, hosting countless Twitter Spaces and building a loyal community. She minted music videos as NFTs on a Web3 video platform called Glass and sold out a music drop on in 50 seconds.

Rocks, however, is her most ambitious project. It’s a collection of 1,000 NFTs released through Nifty Music — a music NFT accelerator. The collection is made up of four tracks, each with different visual traits and rarities. Holders can unlock rewards depending on how many NFTs they hold, such as free concert access. At the time of writing, Isla has sold 600 from the collection so far.

8/ Probably A Label / Money on the Table
Monthly trading volume: 28 ETH ($35,560)
Primary sales (Nov.): N/A
Secondary sales: 28 ETH
Drop date: October 6

Warner Records UK partnered with Web3 brand Probably Nothing to launch a new NFT imprint, Probably a Label. The label’s access passes sold out in 7 minutes in early October and continued to generate secondary sales through November. The label dropped a free music NFT “Money on the Table” featuring Diddy and JasonMartin in November, driving an additional 3 ETH in volume.

9/ Sammy Arriaga – “Pixelated”
Monthly trading volume: 25 ETH ($31,750)
Primary sales (Nov.): N/A
Secondary sales: 25 ETH
Drop date: June, 2022

Bringing country to crypto, Sammy Arriaga is a singer-songwriter that launched an NFT project called “Pixelated” back in June. Based around 12 different versions of one song, Pixelated is a collection of 4,000 NFTs, each with a unique pixelated profile picture which Arriaga’s fans use across their social media accounts. The Pixelated project has enjoyed steady volume on secondary markets like OpenSea since the launch, but volume soared in November.

10/ Daniel Allan – Various
Monthly trading volume: 25 ETH ($31,750)
Primary sales (Oct.): 1.076 ETH
Secondary sales: 24.025 ETH
Drop date: Dec, 2021

Most of Daniel Allan’s sales in November can be attributed to one large collector, or “whale.” An unknown crypto address spent approximately 20 ETH “sweeping” up Allan’s earliest drops on on the secondary market. Allan also had a small primary sale in November via a collaboration with Reo Cragun released through Cragun’s “LNRZ” collective.

Methodology: The chart was compiled using data from primary music NFT sales across 19 different NFT platforms, independent releases and combined with secondary volume data from OpenSea. Data was captured between November 1 – November 30, 2022. Conversion rates from crypto to US dollars were calculated on November 30.

Disclosure: The author owns music NFTs from TK, Mija and Daniel Allan, however, the above list is based purely on sales data.

SZA Is Worried About Bowen Yang in ‘SNL’ Promo Where He Calls Her ‘Scissors’

Bowen Yang just can’t get it straight in this week’s Saturday Night Live promo featuring SZA and host Keke Palmer. “Hi, I’m Keke Palmer and I’m hosting Saturday Night Live this week with musical guest SZA,” Nope star Palmer says in the first video bit.


“And I’m Brown Yang and we’re gonna have such a… did i just say ‘Brown Yang?’,” an embarrassed Yang asks this week’s guests as they laugh nervously. “I can’t even read my own name. Sorry Guys! I am Bowen Young and we’re gonna… oh my God. Brown Yung! What’s happening right now?,” a melting down Yang stammers.

“Are you okay Bowen?,” a concerned Palmer asks. He assures her he’s totally fine and repeats his first name as evidence, before inexplicably calling himself “Cohen Yang” and then insisting that he’s Bravo star Andy Cohen and then, once again Brown Yung. “I’m worried about you Bowen,” SZA says before he refers to her as “Scissors” and says he’s going to take a long nap before tomorrow night’s (Dec. 3) show.

In a second promo, a recovered Yang promises that the episode is going to be epic, clapping out every syllable, a tactic Palmer then employs to ask where the bathroom is. In an earlier video, Palmer revealed that she’s an “octuple threat,” busting out her singing, acting and dancing chops before adding that she’s also a beekeeper, painter, magician and fitted sheet folder; she’s also admittedly bad at math.

The clip dropped a day after SZA shared the cover art for her upcoming S.O.S. album, which does not yet have an official release date. Donning a football jersey with S.O.S stitched on the sleeve, SZA sits on the edge of a diving board planted over a large body of water in the image.

Earlier this month, SZA released her newest single, “Shirt,” which debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100. Along with doling out another high-charting single, SZA recently covered Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Power Players issue. In the cover story, she questioned her longevity in music and where she sees her career going forward.

Start Me Up: Rolling Stones’ 60th Anniversary Minted With Collectible Coin

They want money — that’s what they want, that’s what they want. Well, now the Rolling Stones can say they’re also ON money, the face of a new collectible coin issued by Britain’s Royal Mint to celebrate the band’s 60th anniversary.

The new £5 ($6.04) coin features a silhouette image of the iconic band performing — frontman Mick Jagger, guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood, and the late drummer Charlie Watts — as well as the band’s name in what is described as their classic 1973 font. The mint said it was one of the last coins of the year to be released bearing the image of Queen Elizabeth II, who died in September at age 96.

The Rolling Stones were back on the road this year with their 2022 European Sixty tour, ending in Berlin in August.

“We are delighted to be honored by way of an official UK coin,” the band said in a statement included in the Royal Mint’s announcement. “Even more significant that the release coincides with our 60th anniversary.”

The new coin is the fifth in the mint’s “Music Legends’” series, which celebrates legendary British artists. Others so honored have been Queen, Elton John, David Bowie, and The Who.

While the best things in life are free, as the Stones sang in their cover of the Motown hit “Money (That’s What I Want),” the coins will cost something. Similar coins on the mint’s website from the Music Legends series range from 15 pounds ($18.12) to 465 pounds ($561.92).

K-Pop Girl Group KARA Release New Album Celebrating 15th Anniversary & The Late Goo Hara

One of the biggest girl groups in K-pop history has returned to celebrate their milestone 15th anniversary while also including a touching tribute to their late member.

KARA made their comeback with a new, four-song EP titled Move Again with members Gyuri, Seungyeon, Nicole, Jiyoung and Youngji taking part. The release is centered on the new single “When I Move,” which sees the girl group step right back into their signature mix of modern and vintage dance sounds heard in some of their biggest singles like “Honey,” “Step” and “Pandora.”

While KARA went through some lineup changes during their time, the outfit’s return to music after seven-a-half-years marks the first release where newest member Youngji (who joined the group in 2014) is performing alongside Nicole and Jiyoung (who both exited the group that same year). Notably, it is also the first KARA release not to include Goo Hara, who was found dead in her Seoul home in 2019 at age 28.

But the memory of Hara lives on in KARA with the accompanying music video for “When I Move.” Tributes to the late singer appear throughout the visual, like the sixth table setting during a scene where the members celebrate the 15th anniversary with cake and champagne. At the end of the video credits, six microphone stands are shown onstage, symbolizing Hara as an eternal group member.

KARA returned to the stage this week at the 2022 MAMA Awards held in Japan, a suitable place for their comeback performance as the group was a pioneer in helping K-pop cross over into the lucrative Japanese market during the ’10s.

Gyuri, Seungyeon, Nicole, Jiyoung and Youngji performed a medley of classic KARA hits including “Lupin,” “Step” and “Mister” (that had K-pop stars in attendance like TREASURE, Kep1er and NMIXX singing and dancing along) before giving the live debut of “When I Move.” Montage videos detailing the group’s history from debut to today with personal photos, classic TV clips, and reflections from the group on their worries and excitement about returning to the stage introduced both performances.

While next week will determine where KARA return on the Billboard charts, the group’s chart legacy includes three hits on World Digital Song Sales (peaking with 2015’s “Cupid” that reached No. 12) and multiple entries on the K-Pop Hot 100 and Japan Hot 100 (including two No. 1s on the latter with 2012’s “Electric Boy” and 2013’s “Thank You Summer Love”).

Selena Gomez Gets Up Close & Personal in New Film Version of ‘My Mind & Me’ Music Video

Selena Gomez fans who have not yet seen her Apple TV+ documentary My Mind & Me or the fans who want to relive it are in luck: On Thursday (Dec. 1), the multi-hyphenate shared a film version of her documentary’s accompanying title track, which features several intimate scenes from the film.

The video kicks off with Gomez sitting down at a grand piano, softly playing the keys to the song. Snaps of her recording the track, in addition to snippets of her traveling, performing live in concert and interacting with friends, fans and family, go in quick succession until the video’s end.

“My mind and me/ We don’t get along sometimes/ And it gets hard to breathe/ But I wouldn’t change my life/ And all of the crashin’ and burnin’ and breakin’, I know now/ If somebody sees me like this, then they won’t feel alone now/ My mind and me,” the 30-year-old sings on the chorus of the introspective track.


Gomez spoke with Billboard at the red-carpet premiere of the documentary and revealed that she initially hesitated to release the project on more than one occasion.

“I was going to release this documentary multiple times and it never really felt right,” the star said. “Then the pandemic hit and a lot of people started having conversations around mental health, the isolation, people feeling depressed or anxious — never feeling those feelings before but have now. I just hope that this will carry on to something like a conversation that people will use to help later on.”

Watch the film version of the “My Mind & Me” video above.
