Heaven or hell? The problem of the posthumous album

Heaven or hell? The problem of the posthumous album Posthumous albums come in two forms: the Cobble and the Legacy. The former is the least lovable. Michael Jackson’s first posthumous release, 2010’s Michael, was so threadbare that his family strongly questioned whether it was him singing on three of its tracks – the so-called Cascio Tapes. “I immediately said it wasn’t his voice,” mused brother Randy on Twitter when he heard them. Artistically, Cobbles are normally justified on grounds of completism: that they “tell us something new” about the artist, and occasionally turf up the odd gem that “deserves to see the light of day”. On that score, something like Jackson’s Do You Know Where Your Children Are, from his second posthumous album, Xscape (2014), ticks all boxes: both a solid jam and a jarring lyrical premise.

Rapper Smino explains why he created a satin-lined hoodie to help people with natural hair
For people with natural hair or those who wear their hair in a protective style, sleeping on satin has proven to be hugely advantageous. With benefits like keeping hair hydrated, preventing split ends, minimizing hair loss and elongating natural styles like bantu knots, dreadlocks and twist-outs, many people have made a habit of sleeping on a satin pillowcase or wrapping their hair in a satin scarf or cap before bed.

‘Black Panther’ expected to be first film shown in Saudi Arabian cinema after 35-year ban lifts

African American Millennials in the Workplace are More Inclined to Use the Free Agent Option to Advance Their Career
Nationwide — The concept of freedom is not lost on anyone who spends time thinking about their range of options, but for African American millennials in the workplace, the exercise of freedom is elevated and broadened by a mindset of career-movement-through-free agency-as-opposed-to-hierarchy.
