The record will be here “soon”

Solange just dropped an exciting announcement in an interview with T Magazine: She's planning to release new music this fall.

"The record will likely arrive into the world fully formed at some mysterious and unexpected moment, like a meteor cratering into the culture," Ayana Mathis writes, stating that Solange has not set a release date for the record but that it will come "soon."

What can we expect from the new record? "There is a lot of jazz at the core,” Solange told Mathis via email, "But with electronic and hip-hop drum and bass because I want it to bang and make your trunk rattle." Her new release comes with a changed perspective, inspired by an outdoor performance she created for her song "Scales" at Donald Judd’s Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas. "I realize how much wider, figuratively and literally, my work could be if I took myself away as subject." 

From there, Solange has begun a "self-apprenticeship," digging into 1930s musical production numbers of director Busby Berkeley, as well as studying movement with choreographer Diane Madden. Whatever, and whenever, Solange plans to surprise the world with all she's been working on, it's bound to be an absolute spectacle.

"Our decision to recall this product is being made out of an abundance of caution," Neutrogena shared in a recall statement on its website, adding that the product is still safe when used once a day, as directed. While the brand does acknowledge the potential damage to the eyes, Neutrogena insists that this is "rare, generally mild, and transient."

Because Pennywise, of course

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped the final trailer for It Chapter Two, and it's very bloody. Though it takes place decades after the events of the 2017 film, that doesn't mean that the "Losers" are free of Pennywise's horrors.

Was it worth it to see how you'd age?

If you've been on social media lately, you'll know that the latest craze is using an app called FaceApp to see what you'd look like as an old person. And, while the photos are pretty funny, they do come with the cost of your own privacy. FaceApp now has the access to names and photos of over 150 million people, according to Forbes, and it can pretty much do anything with this information.
