While the rest of us have been baking bread, dancing like actually nobody is looking and cleaning the kitchen as if our lives depend on it, Camila Cabellohas been in the lab. The singer revealed on Tuesday (May 19) that she’s spent the past couple weeks working on a «jam session» for her fans.

Working in collaboration with Mastercard, Camila said she’s getting ready to bring «u a mini concert series, inspired to invoke a sense of nostalgia for you guys & me.» The two specials will kick off on next Wednesday (May 27), with part two slated for June 3.

According to a release from Mastercard, the intimate, acoustic Cabello shows featuring new versions of her biggest tracks are part of the company’s ongoing global Digital Priceless Experiences series, which create unique at-home experiences during a time when we are unable to enjoy them in person. Among the other experiences available are a visit to Spain’s Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza to learn the stories behind its masterpieces, lessons on how to throw the ultimate online party from sommelier Belinda Chang and golf tips from Ian Poulter, Justin Rose and Annika Sorenstam, among others.

In the promo video she sings a medley of «Should’ve Said it» and «Havana.» See Cabello’s tweet below.

Lady Gaga sprinkled some Willy Wonka-style dust on her Little Monsters on Thursday (May 28) with the surprise release of her Blackpink collab, «Sour Candy.» The mouth-puckeringly sweet dance pop confection co-produced by BURNS and frequent collaborator BloodPop is a 2:38 bi-lingual bop that finds Gaga trading off verses with the South Korean girl group’s members as they spin a tale of enticing love that requires some genuine, hard-to-crack effort.

«I might be messed up, but I know that’s love/ You want a real taste, at least I’m not fake/ Come, come unwrap me,» Gaga deadpans over a bouncy house beat following the teasing chorus from Blackpink’s Jennie and Lisa, «I’m sour candy, so sweet then I get a little angry, yeah/ Sour candy, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah/ I’m super psycho, make you crazy when I turn the light’s low.»

«Sour Candy» is the third track from Gaga’s upcoming sixth studio album, Chromatica (May 29), following on the heels of the Ariana Grande collab «Rain on Me» and first single, «Stupid Love.» The album will also feature a duet with one of Gaga’s longtime heroes and friend, Elton John on «Sine From Above.» The singer is so excited about the release that she tweeted out a picture on Wednesday in which she trundled into a Chromatica-themed truck to personally deliver copies of the album to retailers all around the world.

Ellie Goulding poses on the red carpet on arrival for the BRIT Awards 2020 in London on Feb. 18, 2020.

Ellie Goulding’s forthcoming studio set now has a title, a release date and a confirmed lineup of a-list pop and hip-hop guests, including a collaboration with the late Juice WRLD.

Goulding’s fourth album Brightest Bluewill drop July 17 and will be split in two parts, Brightest Blue and EG.0.

The first part, notes the British pop singer, reflects her “vulnerability” and our complex world “where relationships still dictate our happiness and heartbreak and can still be the most painful thing in the world.”

The Brightest Blue spreads across 13 tracks which “symbolize growing up and becoming a woman,” she adds in a statement, and includes the previously released “Power”

The second part spans five tracks and “encapsulates my confident, brave and fearless side and features all my recent collaborations,” she continues. EG.0’stracklist features “Hate Me” with Juice WRLD, “Close To Me” with Diplo featuring Swae Lee, her “Slow Grenade” collab with Lauv, and «Worry About Me,” her blackbear team-up she debuted earlier this month on The Late Late Show With James Corden.

The “Lights” singer has kept active during the lockdown. She was a featured performer in Global Citizen’s charity livestream One World: Together At Home and participated in the BBC’s Big Night In fundraising cover of the Foo Fighters’ “Times Like These,” which raised $45 million for Children in Need and hit No. 1 in the U.K.

Brightest Blue is the followup to 2015’s Delirum, which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and the Official U.K. Albums Chart. Goulding’s first two albums, Lights(from 2010) and Halcyon (from 2012), both went to No. 1 in her homeland.

Over the past decade, the singer has won a pair of Brit Awards, including British female solo artist in 2014, and bagged three U.K. No. 1 singles, including the final leader of 2019 with a cover of Joni Mitchell’s “River” (Polydor/Universal).
