Catalan separatists on trial take seats in parliament

Four Catalan separatist leaders who won election to the Spanish parliament last month were temporarily released from jail to be sworn in as lawmakers.

Meet Hip-Hop’s New Rising Star: Danileigh

Danileigh isn’t new to the entertainment industry. Discovered by Prince at the age of 18, she went viral last year after sharing her version of Drake’s ‘In My Feelings’ challenge. The Dominican-American hip hop and R&B singer is also a dancer, creative director and songwriter who helped pen J.Lo and Cardi-B’s “Dinero” single.

The popularity of Danileigh’s breakout song ‘Lil Bebe’ stretched way past its initial release with remixes with rapper Lil Baby and most recently, Latin trap stars Rauw Alejandro and Nio Garcia who featured in the song’s Spanish version, Bebecito.

A fan of collaboration, she’s not afraid of recognizing real talent in her peers. Danileigh exudes the same energy talking about Gunna’s new album Drip or Drown 2 as she does talking about herself. “It’s fire. It’s a vibe” she says. “You could just press shuffle and every song is lit.”

She believes Millennials see artists’ visual art then decide if it’s worth a listen. “Boogie is crazy with his visuals” she says. “He’s definitely going to blow up.”

Spain’s Socialist leader Sanchez claims election victory

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez’s Socialists won snap elections Sunday without the necessary majority to govern solo in a fragmented political landscape marked by the far-right’s entry into parliament. The results raise the spectre of another period of instability for Spain, with Sanchez depending on alliances with hostile rivals in an environment that has soured since Catalonia’s failed secession bid in 2017.
