Kanye West’s new album won’t be on streaming services; to be released on his $200 stem player

Kanye West’s new album won’t be on streaming services; to be released on his $200 stem player
Feb 19 2022 Share

Kanye West fans are in quite a predicament after the 44-year-old rapper announced that his ‘Donda 2’ album won’t be coming out on streaming platforms and will release exclusively on his $200 stem player.

Ye took to Instagram to state that platforms like Apple, Amazon, Spotify or YouTube only give artists 12 per cent of income and that ‘it’s time to take control’ and free ourselves from the oppressive system. While some praised the rapper for such a move, many shrugged off this decision stating that they would opt to pirate the album or not listen to it at all.

“Tech companies made music practically free so if you don’t do merch sneakers and tours you don’t eat”, he stated. Ye has also been recently embroiled in a seemingly one-sided battle with his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, current boyfriend Pete Davidson and the rest of her family, posting a number of questionable statements directed towards the Kardashian camp.

March election speculation rises as Robert Abela remains silent

March election speculation rises as Robert Abela remains silent
Feb 19 2022 Share

Speculation continues to rise within political and public circles as this weekend is Prime Minister Robert Abela’s last chance to announce a general election for March.

For an election to happen on March 26, Abela must dissolve parliament on Monday to abide by the obligatory 33-day window between house dissolution and the day of voting. Many have been predicting potential dates and with Pope Francis’ arrival in early April and the Easter Holiday’s obstruction of political campaigning, it can go both ways.

Robert Abela has remained relatively silent on the election dates, with options to leave the general election for May or even until the end of the government’s window in June. The Prime Minister has stated multiple times that the election will be held before the end of the government’s legislature.

When do YOU think the election will take place? 🗳

Skyscraper land? St. Julian’s to welcome another 33-storey tower after ERA approves proposal

Feb 19 2022 Share

The bustling entertainment hub of St. Julian’s will welcome another 33-storey tower after the Environment and Resources Authority (ERA) green-lighted a proposal.

The project, led by PX Lettings’ Paul Xuereb and architect Christian Spiteri, will match Joseph Portelli’s neighbouring Mercury Tower project, which is also currently in development. Times of Malta have also highlighted that such an approval cleared a ‘significant regulatory hurdle’.

The tower, which will include office space, residential areas, restaurants and parking facilities, was approved after the ERA’s consideration of an Environmental Impact Assessment and comments from the public during a stipulated 30-day consultation period.

As the busy commercial hub continues to welcome high-rise developments, could we be witnessing the future of St. Julian’s in motion? 🏙

Amongst other unfortunate casualties, three people in the Netherlands were killed by toppling trees whilst a woman was killed in London when a tree collapsed onto her car. Venues such as London’s O2 arena also registered significant damages after the wind shredded its domed roof. Together with similar establishments such as Printworks London, performers scheduled for shows at the O2 had to postpone to ensure the safety of their fans and clients.
