Another week, another Drake song tops the charts. This time the hit viral sensation “In My Feelings” overtook “Nice for What”, thanks to the popularity of the Keke dance challenge . 

The Keke Dance challenge began with “The Shiggy Show“, and now thousands fans—including Ciara, Odell Beckham Jr., and Kevin Hart—have made similar videos under #inmyfeelingschallenge.  This hashtag has exploded to the point that new sites have even chosen the very best and worst challenge dance videos. Now the trend has apparently garnered over 2.3 million tweets, so will the challenge sta viral?

The Internet is amped for…the Internet. With their highly anticipated follow-up album to 2015’s Ego Death dropping this week, fans are eager to listen to what Syd and her crew have to offer. The first two singles off Hive Mind, “Roll (Burbank Funk)” and “Come Over” have been exciting teasers. They also put out La Di Da, another summery song ahead of the July album. In an interview earlier this year with Beats1, Matt Maritans said,

“Ego Death was the death of all our individual egos and now it’s like we’re one group ego…Hive Mind is basically one mind. Five people with one mind.”

Will the Internet’s upcoming release of their album Hive Mind score a Best New Music from Pitchfork?

As new relationships grow others fade. While Singer Halsey and rapper G-Eazy have broken up, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are now engaged.

In a final interview before the split, Halsey was apparently in love with G-Eazy and ready to consider having a child. Early on in their relationship, the two collaborated on the song Him & I released in December. The two artists date publicly for a year posting Instagram pictures with each other. Then, on July 3 Halsey announced that they were taking a break on her Instagram story. she said,

“G-Eazy and I are taking some apart. I’m eager to continue the upcoming passage of time dedicating myself to my art and career, and the duration of my tour. I wish him the best. Thanks for respecting our privacy at this time.”

While this post seemed polite, her tweet “pumpkin eater” the next day hinted that G-Eazy may have cheated on her. The drama continued when Halsey teared up during a July 6 concert singing her song Sorry. Finally, on Saturday night  G-Eazy was seen holding Demi Lovato’s had in a Los Angeles nightclub. Despite all of this drama, Will Halsey release a song about G-Eazy by the end of the year?

Meanwhile, the newly-engaged couple Justin Beiber and Hailey Baldwin have been very public on social media about their relationship. After dating previously and reuniting for about a month the pair is now engaged. The on and off again couple have spent lots of time recently showing their PDA in New York, Washington State, the Hamptons, the Bahamas, and most recently Miami. On Instagram, Justin confirmed his engagement in a telling post saying,

“Hailey I am soooo in love with everything about you! So committed to spending my life getting to know every single part of you loving you patiently and kindLY. I promise to lead our family with honor and integrity letting Jesus through his Holy Spirit guide us in everything we do and every decision we make. My heart is COMPLETELY and FULLY YOURS and I will ALWAYS put you first! You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin…”
