After having plenty of success with his hit single “First Class,” Harlow recently performed the song with Fergie, who’s 2006 hit “Glamorous” inspired the track, during his opening number at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards in New York City.

The Backstreet Boys are ready to get into the holiday spirit with their first-ever Christmas album, which is set to release on October 14. The band’s AJ McLean and Nick Carter recently shared an in an interview with Variety that Justin Timberlake, one of their ‘90s boy band peers from the wildly-popular group *NSYNC, inspired one of the songs. Carter, who often watched Trolls with his kids, shared that Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop The Feeling” inspired a song on A Very Backstreet Christmas.

Reflecting on a previous tour with the Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block, Nick Carter revealed in a CNN interview earlier this year that it’s “absolutely possible” that the Backstreet Boys would be on board for a reunion tour with *NSYNC and the Spice Girls: “We think that an *NSYNC, Backstreet, maybe Spice Girls combo, like something like that, would just be — it would kind of be like the pinnacle, the cap on such a good time in people's lives and to just bring nostalgia back… So is it possible, which is the question? Absolutely possible.”

The iconic “Larger Than Life” band is gearing up to celebrate a milestone anniversary… In April 2023, the Backstreet Boys — made up of Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, and Brian Littrell — will mark 30 years as a group.

Last fall, Lovato had the epiphany to make the return to rock-influenced music after seeing hard-rock trio Dead Sara perform. “I feel like I had tried to do rock music a few years ago when I wasn't ready, it wouldn't have been authentic, but now it is,” Demi told Alternative Press.

The Kid LAROI has dropped a few smash-hits in his career, including collaborations with Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus. The singer-songwriter shared with iHeartRadio that as much as he loves experimenting with his music, he also loves switching up his fashion: “I would say that my style has significantly evolved since first moving to the states. I used to wear tracksuits all the time, but I’ve felt so much more freedom to try new things and I just love mixing it up.”

The Kid LAROI unveiled a new tattoo on TikTok, and by the end of the clip, he revealed that the tattoo artist was none other than “Circles” hitmaker Post Malone.

Last year, The Kid LAROI made Forbes’ “30 Under 30,” list, following a stream of chart-topping hits and high-energy festival performances (including the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Festival with appearances on the Daytime Stage lineup and the T-Mobile Arena stage later that night).

Lauv just hit the Daytime Stage at the 2022 iHeartRadio Music Festival. During his set, he shared the background story of his hit "Modern Loneliness.” Lauv said the song has a special meaning to him because he felt like he was isolated and lonely when he was growing up.



Right before the iHeartRadio Music Festival, Lauv put on a once-in-a-lifetime performance at the launch of iHeartLand's State Farm Park on Roblox. He delivered several fan favorites like "I'm So Tired" and "I Like Me Better.” The pop singer also spoke with iHeartRadio's JoJo Wright in between songs and answered questions about his latest album All 4 Nothing.


Lauv celebrated the release of his All 4 Nothing album last month. During his album release party, he debuted new songs like "Stranger" and "Kids Are Born Stars." A few days later, he kicked off his North American tour in Minneapolis and wrapped up in Las Vegas last Saturday.


Tate McRae

One of Tate McRae’s biggest songs is “she’s all i wanna be,” and it almost sounded completely different. Tate told iHeartRadio earlier this year that the upbeat song we all know and love “initially started as a really sad ballad, and then we did a full 180 and changed it into this punk song, which is cool.” Now, it’s “the most satisfying feeling” that listeners can relate to it: “Everyone’s going through the same thing, they just don’t even realize it.”

Tate’s latest album, i used to think i could fly, almost released a week sooner than it actually did. She revealed on TikTok that she pushed her album’s release date back one week so she “could fully enjoy” Harry Styles’ highly-anticipated third studio album, Harry’s House. Tate confidently added later: “not even kidding, ask my label.”

Tate previously pointed out two “Leading Ladies” as role models to her: Zendaya and Jennifer Lopez. Tate said Zendaya is “honestly, one of the classiest, most bad-ass people I've ever seen,” and Jennifer is “the type of woman that I want to be when I grow up, is someone who can touch around in all realms [and] still be fire at everything. She's incredible.”

Dove Cameron

Dove Cameron is a staunch supporter of the LGBTQ+ community. As part of the community, she dedicated her 2022 VMA for Best New Artist to queer youth. "I want to dedicate this to all of the queer kids out there who don't feel that they can take up space and inhabit the fullness of who they are. Thank you for getting an overtly queer song onto mainstream radio,” she told fans during her acceptance speech.

Dove got her first tattoo of a Capricorn symbol when she was just 14. "My best friend made friends with this guy who had a tattoo gun," Dove said. "He told us he'd been practicing on oranges and was ready. Keep in mind we're in 7th grade and I still had braces.”


Jax competed on the 14th season of American Idol in 2015. She made it all the way to third place on the competition series by showing off her impressive range with songs like “Empire State of Mind” by Alicia Keys and “Piece of My Heart” by Janis Joplin.
