Travi$ Scott‘s character has been called into question ad nauseum recently, and it’s come at an awkward time, considering folks are accusing him of unethical maneuvers just as his debut album, Rodeo, is making its rounds.
Well, don’t tell that to this kid. Stalked and surrounded by paparazzi as he attempted to get in his vehicle in Paris, Scott paused to interact with a young teenager, who was apparently showing off his “Rodeo” tattoo. The Houston native immediately paused, took off his chain, and bestowed it onto the 14-year old. Shortly after he would post a high-res photo of the moment on his Instagram, calling the kid his “idol.” There’s some video above, and Scott’s Instagram post is below.

Kehlani‘s ascent has been rapid, and in just the past few months, she’s released her critically-acclaimed You Should Be Here mixtape, signed with Atlantic Records, and is prepping to tour Europe next month. Still, there are videos to be released, the latest of them being “Alive,” which is just what this clip will make you feel. Blunts, champagne bottles, Hawaii waterfalls. What a time.
2015 is the first year since he signed to OVO Sound that PARTYNEXTDOOR didn’t release a July mixtape, but all is not lost. He’s been teasing new music for the better part of the year, and yesterday, popular Atlanta producer, TM88, with whom PND has worked in the past, announced that he and the Toronto crooner have an EP on the way, titled PartyAt8.
The teases continued today on the 7th episode of OVO Sound Radio, when PND used his guest mix to debut no less than five new songs, leading listeners to believe that the release of his first project since 2014’s PNDCOLOURS EP is on the horizon. Check out all five of the exclusives below, and get ready for some 4th quarter magic from the OVO prince.

Ontario, Canada, has no shortage of pop and rock stars, and the 45,000 fans assembled at the Rogers Centre in Toronto last night could have been forgiven for expecting Taylor Swift to introduce Drake or the Weeknd as her special guest three-quarters of the way through her set. (Their parents might have been hoping for Neil Young or Gordon Lightfoot.)
Instead, she reached back to her roots, bringing out a man utterly familiar with sharing the spotlight with a gorgeous woman tall enough to play point guard for the Raptors.
“Someone absolutely incredible is about to come out on the stage,” Swift announced as the crowd shrieked in anticipation. “This is someone who has sold 20 million records. This is someone who, more importantly, is an amazing human being. I actually opened up for his tour years ago. He’s been so wonderful to me. He’s one of the most talented people who’s ever been born. Toronto, Keith Urban is here to see you.”
Sauntering onstage in all black with an electric guitar slung around his neck, Urban, wearing an easy smile and his trademark bob, broke into the opening lines of his latest chart-topper, “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16,” handing the microphone briefly to Swift so she could spit out the word “Chevy” as they strolled down a long catwalk into the crowd. Swift, herself dressed in an ebony, skin-windowed unitard, joined in for harmony on the chorus and sang the first half of the second verse, but mostly played the role of hype girl, as has been customary during this nightly element of her show.
The pair followed with Urban’s classic hit “Somebody Like You,” recorded back when his hair color was closer to Swift’s. With the Aussie axman cranking out licks alongside her, Swift struck the pose of a more traditional frontwoman, wailing her way through the chorus as fireworks blasted in the background. As the crowd’s energy surged, so too did Swift’s; here were moments when she just seemed to be a giddy fan of Urban’s, providing a fleeting glimpse of the squiggly-curled teen who dreamed of conquering Nashville. As it turns out, the breadth of her empire can now only be taken in from outer space.
