We think not, however we are looking forward to what he releases on this album having said he has taken inspiration from the evolution of the work from people like Picasso and Bowie.

Pusha T-King Pusha- He has already tipped the album to be the best of 2018, and will be his first album since the release of The Prelude: Darkest Before Dawn. The album has a heavy influence from Kanye West as he helped produce nearly every song on the album as well as some other namely features yet to be confirmed.

NETFLIX- The social network- the 2010 biographical drama directed by David Fincher is a story all about Facebook and how it became the powerhouse it is today. Starting with a basic idea in a college dorm and turning into a multi billion dollar idea, if you haven’t seen it then it is definitely worth a watch. The film will be available on Netflix on the 18th May.
NETFLIX- Love island season 1 and 2- The smash hit ITV series is set for launch onto Netflix on the 1st May. If you want to binge watch some trash reality TV then this is highly recommended. A bunch of swollen tattooed lads and girls in bikinis, its a car crash waiting to happen.
Solo: a Star Wars story- The second part of the trilogy and follow up to Rouge One has Star Wars fans optimistically excited. There are also some big names in the film with main character Han Solo being played by Alden Ehrenreich as well as features from Game of Thrones star Emelia Clarke and also Donald glover aka Childish Gambino.
Jaguar F Pace SVR- This 542bhp suv is the first ever high end SUV made by Jaguar. This V8 monster will go from 0-62 in 4.3 seconds (which is the same as the 2009 Audi R8) and has a top speed of 176mph. Due to the popularity of the F pace model and more people wanting an SUV this is a smart move from Jaguar as it looks like they are heading in the right direction.
Fortnite season 4– Arguably the biggest game of 2017 and 2018 and potentially all time Epic games have just launched Season 4 for Fortnite. This season sees a space theme with craters across the map but most notably Dusty Depot taking the main brunt of the impact. It was rumoured for weeks that Tilted torso was getting destroyed by this big meteor however it actually hit just west of Tilted towers and wiped out the majority of Dusty depot turning it into Dusty Divot. There are also a load of new skins in the game as well as new locations throughout the map. If you haven’t already, buy the battle pass, its worth it.
