Billie Eilish Steps up Her Sneaker Game with new Air Force 1 Release 

Billie Eilish sneakers

Kanye West and Billie Eilish may not see eye-to-eye on much, but one thing they have in common (aside from being chart-topping artists) is the fact that they now both have their own sneaker line.

While Ye has been in the sneaker game for quite some time with his Yeezy line, Eilish only recently entered the game with her neon green Air Jordan KO and most recently, with the debut of her Air Force 1 High last month. Now it appears that a Billie Eilish x Nike Air Force 1 Low is about to drop as well.

Eilish, who is one of the rare female artists with her own sneaker collection, has definitely imprinted her style in the Air Force 1 High, an oversized chunky style featuring five mid-foot straps over the laces. The entire upper (including the Nike swoosh) is a beige-ish colorway that she simply calls “mushroom.” (The sneaker is largely made with eco-friendly and recycled materials.)

A first glance at the Low model shows a departure from the monochromatic style of the High with two slightly different colorways on the upper in a block-like pattern overlaid by the Nike swoosh. Instagram account @solebyjc shared a sneak peek of the latest drop, which as of yet, has no release date.

“Soon (feat. Arabian)” is the new single by 42 Dugg. The reflective track follows the CMG signee’s collaboration with EST Gee, Last Ones Left, which was released in early April. Dugg set a new career-high as the album debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 charts.

The Detroit native’s latest album arrives only one day after his record company, CMG, was named “The Hardest-Working Label in Hip-Hop” on the cover of Billboard. Despite the fact that Dugg was unable to attend the cover shoot, the Billboard cover featured Yo Gotti, the CEO of CMG, as well as labelmates Moneybagg Yo, EST Gee, Mozzy, Blac Youngsta, and Lehla Samia.

Dugg’s first new music release since his incarceration earlier this month, “Soon,” has prompted his CMG family and industry supporters to send #Free42Dugg messages.

The new single may be heard below.

Dreezy Releases New Album 'HITGIRL' Entirely Produced by Hit-Boy

Dreezy has released her new and highly anticipated album HITGIRL. Hit-Boy, three-time GRAMMY Award winner, executive produced the 10-track album, which features Future, Coi Leray, Jeremih, and INK.

“When you listen to this, I want you to hear one producer and a female kill a whole project together,” Dreezy says. “Hit-Boy pushed me out of my comfort zone. I was thinking about songs differently. When I laid it down, I saw his vision and trusted him. I don’t know the last time this has been done. There aren’t any top producers who are co-signing females like this right now. We are making history for real.”

HITGIRL is the first album from Dreezy since Big Dreez dropped in 2019. You can hear the release below.

ICYMI: Rajon Rondo Allegedly Pulls Gun on Girlfriend and Their Children, Has History of Verbal Abuse 

i

Rajon Rondo is accused of pulling a gun on the mother of his children. Ashley Bachelor, Rondo’s longtime partner and the mother of his two children, has filed for an emergency protective order from the Cleveland Cavaliers point guard.

According to TMZ Sports, the protective order was filed in Louisville, asking for protection for herself and her son and daughter.

Bachelor states Rondo played video games with his son, Pierre before Bachelor asked the boy to separate laundry. Rondo then ripped the game console out the wall in a fit of rage, smashing outdoor lights, a coffee cup, and trash cans.

Rondo upset the kids, who saw all of the rage. Bachelor attempted to calm the situation, but Rondo threatened her with, “You’re dead.” Rondo left home but would return 15 minutes later, banging on the back door window with a gun. She asked Rondo to stop, but he would yell, “Go get my fucking son.” Bachelor did in fear of what Rondo would do next. Rondo would eventually “yank” the boy outside and ask why he was scared while he was still holding the gun. He would demand his daughter to come out, and he verbally reprimanded both children for being scared of him.

Rondo’s parents would come to the home. They were unable to calm him but did get him to leave.

The new protection order reads: “I am extremely fearful for my safety and for the safety of my children. Rajon has a history of volatile, erratic, explosive behavior. He is verbally, emotionally, and financially abusive. He physically hits our son and calls him names like ‘p***y’ and accuses him of acting like a ‘bitch.'”

The report also states Rondo calls his daughter “thot, bitch, and dickhead.”

Rondo has not been charged or arrested for a crime.

ICYMI: Bobby Brown Believes if He and Whitney Houston Stayed Together She Would Still Be Alive 

am

Just one day after revealing that being molested by a priest led to some of his destructive behavior, Bobby Brown is reflecting on his love with the icon Whitney Houston. Brown told PEOPLE that he believes if he and Houston stayed together she would be alive today.

Brown, 53, talks about his ups and downs in the new A&E documentary Biography: My Life. Bobby Brown claims one of his regrets stems from his divorce from ex-wife Whitney Houston, which premieres on May 30.

Throughout their 14-year marriage, which terminated in 2007, both Houston and Brown battled terrible addiction. Many close to the pair have stated in the years since Houston’s untimely death in 2012 that it was she who influenced Brown’s usage of hard narcotics.

“It was really rough because I was so addicted. I had to be put into medical detox first,” Brown said. “And then the Bible got me through. It was about becoming healthier for my daughter [Bobbi Kristina] and for the rest of my kids.”

Earlier this week, Brown revealed his mother was beaten and arrested by police in Boston after attempting to help neighbors. That temporarily placed Brown in social services. “I was sent to a temporary custody by social services which was supposed to be a religious place but it wasn’t a very nice place to be for a child,” Brown said. “One of the priests tried to molest me. He tried to touch my private parts … At that time, I was a young boy. I didn’t know what sexual boundaries were. I just knew I didn’t like being touched. Some things are hard to forget.”

“Biography: Bobby Brown” takes viewers behind the scenes of the American Music Award winner’s rise to success, as well as the aftermath from his personal struggles with sobriety and the devastating loss of his two daughters and first wife, Whitney Houston. “Bobby Brown: Every Little Step,” a new 12-episode series, takes us into the present day for an intimate look at his life with wife Alicia Etheredge-Brown and their children as he concentrates on new business projects, new music, and the 2022 reunion with New Edition on The Culture Tour. You can see a preview below.
