Beyoncé is arguably immortal, she even has an accented letter in her name = Some people have just proved themselves champions this week…AKA, Babes… fire! Words: Bianca Agenbag
The world is AKA’s
Aka’s official video for The World is Yours has launched exclusively on Trace Urban and it’s fire!! The indie video was shot during his recent trip to Thailand with girlfriend Bonang Matheba (she even makes a cameo!). Exotic locations, sipping champagne in infinity pools, experiencing the East-Asian nightlife…. we have to say, this might be the best music video to come out of SA ever! Bar raised.
Beyoncé invented pregnancy
Beyoncé does not do anything second-rate, not even pregnancy. She took to Instagram announcing that she’s expecting not one but TWO babies with a photo revealing her baby bump (while kneeling on a bed of roses in satin lingerie). And of course, the internet exploded! The pic which currently stands on 9,088,825 m likes and counting is now the most liked photo on Instagram, surpassing previous record holder Selena Gomez’s 6,320,932 m likes. Congrats Queen Bee!
All-female Ocean 8
The Ocean’s movie franchise starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Matt Damon is getting an all-female revamp in 2018! Riri shared the pic below to her Twitter account, showing off an iconic cast including Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway and Sarah Paulson on their way to pull off the heist of the century at the annual Met Gala. Apparently, there will also be appearances by Dakota Fanning, Katie Holmes, Olivia Munn, James Corden, Richard Armitage etc. Just 18 months to go until it hits our screens! Let the wait begin.
Babes & Cassper teams up
The self-proclaimed queen of Gqom aka Babes Wodumo has teamed up with legendary hip hop artist Cassper Nyovest & Big Nuz‘s Mampintsha for an all new track dubbed “Family”. We have to give it to them, they make one hell of a combination! Maybe the track’s name is a sign that she will join Cassper’s label Family Tree? We’ll have to wait and see. Check out the video below:

Kimye Kids Coming Soon
As if babies aren’t already cute enough, Kanye went and released the Yeezy Boost 350 Infant sneaker a few months back and now it has been announced that Kim and Kayne will soon be launching an all-new kids only line!

Other performances to look forward to include A Tribe Called Quest, Alicia Keys, Dave Grohl and much more.

Get in Formation
We are not done with Queen Bee just yet. Beyoncé released the latest campaign for her apparel line Ivy Leak and this time we see Selah Marley (daughter of Bob Marley), rising model Sophie Koella, and Black-ish actress Yara Shahidi model alongside Bee. The campaign focusses on female empowerment and the importance of sisterhood. Check it out below:

The Rockin’ 1000
The Rockin’ 1000 – a mostly Italian rock band consisting of over a 1000 singers, guitarists, bassists and drummers performing insanely tight rock songs – started out as a stunt to get the Foo Fighters to play in their hometown (which happened). From there they established themselves as the biggest band in the world. Listen to their latest cover of Nirvana’s Smells likeTeen Spirit below. It doesn’t get better than this!
