Selena continues to make moves on the charts decades after her death. The late-singer landed a No. 1 position on the Billboard Vinyl charts again because of her “Ones” rerelease.
Selena is on top of the charts again with an album rerelease.
“Ones,” a collection of Selena’s top hits, was re-released on vinyl and the rapid sale of the vinyl set launched the album to No. 1 on the Billboards vinyl chart. The chart has only been around for 9 years and Selena is already dominating.
People are very lucky to have received their limited-edition vinyl.
Who doesn’t like to experience Selena’s music on vinyl with a new crop top? It is the only correct outfit to wear when you are feeling yourself to the sounds of Selena.
Selena fans are so happy to see their favorite still making news.
It doesn’t take much to make Selena fans excited. It is easy to argue that the late-singer has a very excited and mobilized base of fans. People have kept her legacy and her fame alive all these years.
Now Selena fans want to see the rest of her albums re-released.
Just picture it. A world where you can get all of Selena’s albums released again as vinyl. What a wonderful world that would be, huh? Nothing like having a chance to buy more Selena merch because, tbh, you can never have enough.
Let’s take one more moment to admire this beautiful vinyl.
It is beautiful and glorious. The vinyl set is something we will always remember. Honestly, it is what la reina deserves.
Just when you thought the hype around Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” might be trickling down, a recent video of an ASL interpreter translating the lyrics has gone viral.
After dropping her big track collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion, Dominican/Trinidadian rapper Cardi B has had just about everybody repeating the beloved lines of the song over and over again. But the most important rendition of the big hit is one done by a woman who does ASL and performs to “WAP” like a boss.
The now-viral clip is beyond entertaining and inspiring to watch. Mostly because the woman in the video not only has the MOVES she also has the lyrics on lock.
A TikTok and Twitter user whose handle is @Freelove19xx went viral for her recent “WAP” ASL cover.
@Freelove19xx, who has yet to be identified by name, recorded herself passionately repeating the lyrics to “WAP” in ASL while channeling the slick and sexy vibe of the Cardi B x Megan Thee Stallion hit. In the video, the TikTok user can be seen interpreting each line of the WAP lyrics while expertly swaying her hips and bopping to the music.
In the comments, users questioned how @Freelove19xx was able to keep up with the rhythm of the music without hearing, she revealed that she has a “speaker that vibrates my whole house lmao. I can feel the music.”
Users inspired by the tweet were quick to celebrate @Freelove19xx for her post.
“A lot of times the variations of a sign are used for a song’s chorus so that it doesn’t seem too repetitive or redundant. It’s a wholeass art, as a hearing person that knows ASL, it’s amazing to see EVERY DAMN TIME lol,” one user commented.
“I absolutely love this. I’ve taken deaf studies & ASL classes & trying to learn 1 sign a week since then. hopefully, I can be signing like u someday!” another user pointed out. “Its hard w no one to practice w but i hope to gain more friends in the deaf community to help me w that. Anyway, you did amazing!”
“Ahhhhh I have no words!!” an adoring commenter replied. “This is grounds for a marriage proposal.”
Thanks to the clip, fans are already demanding the obvious:
“Has anyone started a petition asking Cardi to have Bluejay in her next video yet?” one user asked.
As of this publication, @Freelove19xx has yet to respond to mitú’s request for comment.
Just about everyone has something to say about Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s steamy “WAP” music video. The project, which dropped last week, has gained all kinds of attention and feelings. From thoughts about Kylie Jenner’s appearance to viewpoints on the outfits, just about everyone has drawn their own conclusions about “WAP”. We just weren’t expecting “Tiger King” star Carole Baskin to be one of them.
That’s right Tiger King’s Carole Baskin has seen “WAP” and the big-cat rights activist and CEO of Big Cat Rescue ain’t happy.
When it comes to the trending music video, you can color Baskin unimpressed.
The video, which features cameos from Kylie Jenner, Normani, Rubi Rose, Sukihana, Rosalía, and Mulatto, has a big cat and a few snakes to boot.
“My guess is that most people won’t even see the photoshopped cats in the scenes because the rest of it is so sexually explicit,” Baskin said of the video in a statement to Entertainment Weekly. “I was happy to see that it does appear to all be photoshopped. It didn’t look like the cats were really in the rooms with the singers.”
Despite this, Baskin says she’s not happy with Cardi or Megan’s decision to feature wild animals.
A big cat is featured in the “WAP” music video alongside Kylie Jenner as she walks down a long hallway and notices it watching her from behind an open door.
“That being said, you have to pose a wildcat in front of a green screen to get that image and that doesn’t happen in the wild,” Baskin explained. “It can happen in sanctuaries like ours where cats have plenty of room to avoid a green screen (or would shred it if offered access and could die from ingesting it).”
Baskin went onto point out that they “probably dealt with one of the big cat pimps, probably even one of the ones shown in Tiger King, Murder, Mayhem and Madness, who make a living from beating, shocking and starving cats to make them stand on cue in front of a green screen in a studio. That’s never good for the cat.”
But Baskin says her big concern is that the WAP video will encourage other artists to use big cats in their own work.
“That makes every follower of these artists, who doesn’t know better, want to imitate by doing the same,” she continued. “After tigers are too old for pay to play sessions by people like Joe Exotic, Bhagavan ‘Doc’ Antle, Marc McCarthy, Mario Tabraue and others, they become a liability instead of an asset.”
“While I think most [big cats] are destroyed behind closed gates at that point, some end up being given away to people who want to have a tiger to show off,” she added. “That never works out and the cats either die or end up dumped in sanctuaries or worse yet, breeding mills. There have been some accounts of tigers just being turned loose on communities when they no longer served as ego props. No matter how you cut it, it’s always abusive to the cat and dangerous to the public.”
Speaking about her decision to feature other artists and women in “WAP” Cardi told New Music Daily on Apple Music that she was eager to show that women can support other women.
“I feel like people be wanting to put female artists against each other. … You know what I’m saying?” Cardi explained. “Every single time I feel like there’s a female artist that’s coming up … I always see like little slick comments like, ‘Oh, they taking over your spot. They taking over this. They taking over that.’ And it just makes me feel like, damn, why it had to be like that? Because I actually like shorty music a lot. Why does it even have to be like that?”
