Shakira & Maluma on Their ‘Absolute Chemistry’ & the New Latin Explosion

Two years ago, when Shakira was looking for songs for her 2017 Spanish-language album, El Dorado, Sony Music Latin chief Afo Verde had a suggestion: How about going into the studio for a writing session with a fellow Colombian, the red-hot up-and-comer Maluma? Shakira, 41, Latin music’s most bankable and best-known female star, was open to the idea. She had paired up with newcomers many times before, and while Maluma had yet to land a No. 1 single on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart, his Instagram and YouTube accounts were exploding, and she was intrigued by his sinuous 2015 pop-reggaetón hit, “Borro Casette.” The collaboration “turned out to be one of the most brilliant ideas Afo Verde has had — and mind you, he has had several,” Shakira says now with a laugh. Says Verde, who also ...

How Music Generated by Artificial Intelligence Is Reshaping — Not Destroying — The Industry

There is an enduring fear in the music industry that artificial intelligence will replace the artists we love, and end creativity as we know it. As ridiculous as this claim may be, it’s grounded in concrete evidence. Last December, an AI-composed song populated several New Music Friday playlists on Spotify, with full support from Spotify execs. An entire startup ecosystem is emerging around services that give artists automated songwriting recommendations, or enable the average internet user to generate customized instrumental tracks at the click of a button. But AI’s long-term impact on music creation isn’t so cut and dried. In fact, if we as an industry are already thinking so reductively and pessimistically about AI from the beginning, we’re sealing our own fates as slaves to the algorit...

Ex-Playboy Model Settles Lawsuit Over Alleged Donald Trump Affair

A former Playboy model who said she had a 10-month affair with President Donald Trump settled her lawsuit Wednesday (Apr. 18) with a supermarket tabloid over an agreement that prohibited her from discussing the relationship publicly. Karen McDougal’s settlement with the company that owns the National Enquirer “restores to me the rights to my life story and frees me from this contract that I was misled into signing nearly two years ago,” she said in a statement Wednesday. In August 2016, the tabloid’s parent company, American Media Inc., paid McDougal $150,000 for the rights to her story about the alleged relationship, but the story never ran. Last month, McDougal filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles asking to invalidate the contract, which she said she was misled into signing. The suit alleged t...

Tina Turner Jukebox Musical ‘Tina’ is a ‘Rollicking Rollercoaster Ride’: Review

Rock legend Tina Turner’s turbulent life story gets the jukebox bio-musical treatment from “Mamma Mia!” director Phyllida Lloyd. As rock’s most famous domestic violence survivor, Tina Turner’s tumultuous life story has long been ripe for a dramatic jukebox musical, but it gains extra topical bite with the advent of global feminist campaigns like #MeToo. Executive produced by the 78-year-old soul-pop siren and her German husband Erwin Bach, Tina sheds little new light on a familiar triumph-over-adversity story already laid out in Turner’s best-selling 1986 autobiography I, Tina and Brian Gibson’s 1993 film What’s Love Got to Do With It. Even so, Phyllida Lloyd’s production is a rollicking rollercoaster ride, delivered with stylistic verve and fireball energy by a high-caliber ca...
