Rita released her second album in 2018 titled “Phoenix” and had 3 top ten singles from it named “Anywhere”, ” Your Song” and “Let you love me”. She is the first female solo in the UK to have 13 top 10 singles. 

As far as listeners and followers she has around 4 million subscribers on YouTube and 20 million listeners on Spotify. With only 2 albums so far we hope to hear more from Rita in the coming year’s. I’m sure she’ll have a lot more number-one singles ahead of her.

D-Witt is a Rising Star in Hip-Hop 

The musician D-Witt is a hip-hop artist who comes from Rockford, IL. He has played a number of gigs including Ohio, Minnesota, and New York City dates. 

He has almost 1000 followers on SoundCloud, almost 4500 likes on Facebook and over 34,000 followers on Instagram. With this loyal following and his successful gigs that he has played, D-Witt is headed for a successful career in hip-hop for sure. 

His latest hit song Enemy featured on SoundCloud at SoundCloud.com/dwittofficial is a blend of rap and melody that reminds us of a G-Eazy or a Loud song. It has a quality that sticks to you and you want to hear it over and over and with over 1 million plays I’m not the only one. These 2 rappers mentioned have millions of views on YouTube which I’m sure D-Witt will follow in their footsteps. His other notable songs Escaping me and Play the Game feature vocals and rap reminiscent of Him and I by Halsey and G-Eazy with a sound that is both memorable and infectious. I found myself wanting to hear these songs again and again.

Bohemian Rhapsody 

This film was released on January 11, 2019, and is by director Bryan Singer. It starts off as a story about the beginning of the rock band Queen. It features performances by Rami Malek as the singer that had an extra set of incisors in his mouth who joins an unknown band and turned it into a supergroup. 

Farrokh Balsara who changes his name to Freddie Mercury shows off his amazing vocals on all the major hit songs from Queen and the film shows us also a rare inside look at a rock band in the 1970s. 

The film follows the band’s early beginnings of struggling to make ends meet to a meteoric rise in popularity in just a few years. The film also follows Freddie Mercury’s private life from his marriage to his wife to his realization that he was bisexual. 

From Freddie’s wild parties to the realization that he had AIDS, this film gives an intimate look at Freddie Mercury’s personal life. The soundtrack was exceptionally well done and for a fan of Queen, it seems to be the ultimate tribute to a rock band that is still popular to this day. 

What you can expect from this film is a range of emotions that can be categorized as a rollercoaster of a ride that ends in tragedy. It is a film worth watching in my opinion and from the rave reviews, I’m not the only one who enjoyed watching it.

Halsey and Her Struggle 

Born Ashley Nicolette Frangipane and known in the music world as Halsey, she was born from a Caucasian mother and African-American father. She studied violin until she was fourteen and then turned to acoustic guitar after that. 

At the tender age of seventeen, she tried to commit suicide and was hospitalized afterward. She was then diagnosed with bipolar and released only to return to school and then art school in New Jersey. 

It was soon after dropping out of art school that she was thrown out of her parents home to live with friends at which time, she became homeless for a short time. 

It was at this time that she decided to write some songs and put them on Sound cloud. One of those songs was the top ten hit “Ghost”, which got the attention of several record labels to which she signed with Astralwerks. 

She soon released her first album Badlands which featured hit singles “New Americana”, “Ghost” and “Castle”, then she followed up with her number one album “hopeless fountain kingdom”. She is now one of the top pop artists and one of the most popular artists of today. She is soon to release a new album shortly. 

Now, Halsey performs on all the major awards shows such as MTV Music Awards, Grammy Awards as well, she plays worldwide tours in arenas before 15000 people a night and she’s only 24 years old. 

Being diagnosed with bipolar or becoming homeless was only a setback for Halsey and was only a starting point to realize her dreams. So many people after being diagnosed stop pursuing their life long dreams so you can take this from Halsey that anything is possible even after a mental health diagnosis.
