TOM GRENNAN is gearing up for his most unlikely collaboration ever – with Olympic legend Usain Bolt.
I can tell that the duo have bonded since they crossed paths this year at Soccer Aid.
Despite being on different teams for Sunday’s match, the pair hung out during practice and talked about music.
Tom even pulled out his guitar for impromptu singing along with other celebrities including Liam Payne of One Direction.
Speaking about his musical plans, Jamaican sprinter Usain, who released his debut album Country Yutes last September, told me, “We’re still working on our rhyme right now. We will be making an album next year.
“We are still trying to make my name known in music as people still don’t take it seriously. Then I’ll try to release another album.”
Tom added: “Usain is a producer. I am a singer. When he records his album, I absolutely fly to Jamaica.
Despite the fact that Usain was one of the most successful athletes in history, he always aspired to a musical career.
He said, “Music is just a part of me. I didn’t do much in isolation so I thought I could take the opportunity to get into music because that’s what I love to do. I would love to do more collaborations on the record.”
NO MORE BREAK IN HAVANA, CAMILA
CAMILA CABELLO is back on social media after her self-guided digital detox.
In December, the Havana-based singer announced she was taking a break from Instagram after she and Shawn Mendes ended their two-year relationship in November.
But she no longer cries at the club after reportedly finding love with Austin Kevich, founder of private dating app Lox Club.
Camila expressed her breakup with Sean in her new music with the breakup track Bam Bam, which brought her another top 10 hit.
She is currently vacationing in Miami after her Champions League performance last month.
DRAKE’S ALBUM IS SO EXPLOSIVE
DRAKE has used his surprise new album “Honestly Nevermind” to target the people who have betrayed him throughout his career.
The Canadian rapper channels his inner Taylor Swift in Texts Go Green, in which he slaps a mysterious lover.
He raps, “If I were you, I’d hate myself/ Left it all behind to be with someone else, oh/ Why should I pretend anymore?”
Drake, who considers Rihanna and Rita Ora to be his ex-lovers, later adds: “The texts turn green, it sounds a little different, doesn’t it? Know you miss the days when I clung to it / Know you’re in the house tonight just thinking about it / I’ve been gone so long.”
In a lengthy statement released alongside the 14-track recording, Drake seems candid about how life in the spotlight isn’t always what others think it should be.
He says: “I can’t remember the last time someone put down the phone, looked into my eyes and asked me what I think about times now. But I remember every time someone shone in my eyes.
“I deliberately try to forget what happened between some people. Because I know I can’t forgive even when I try. My thirst for revenge defeats my good guy inside every time.
“I have plans that I can’t talk about with more than four guys because the last time I shared them with someone else… well, that’s another story for another night.”
Know you’re in the house tonight, just thinking about it / I’ve been gone so long.
He adds: “I know that everyone who tells me they love me doesn’t love me all the time – especially when I’m doing better than okay and they have to watch it from every point in their lives.”
While the record undoubtedly represents a complete change of direction since last year’s “Certified Lover Boy”, Drake’s biggest change comes with the Sticky and Massive tracks.
They are meant more for sweaty underground raves at 4am than they will ever become mainstream. The lead single Falling Back, in which the accompanying video features him marrying a host of gorgeous models, is also lyrically dark. In it, he sings about feeling dead inside as a romance falls apart.
This record hit the mark and is sure to divide the fans. But after listening, I have to admit that Drake got at least one thing right – the title. . . Honestly, it doesn’t matter.
REBELLION IN PINK
REBEL WILSON looked like the Pink Lady from the hit movie Grease when she was relaxing on a yacht.
In keeping with the Sixties style, Rebel opted for a high-waisted pink plaid bikini and a matching jacket.
The actress has embarked on a brighter future after finding love with her friend Ramona Agrumah – her “Disney princess”.
When I spoke to Rebel at the Bafta 2022 dinner after she hosted a star-studded ceremony in London, she confirmed she plans to spend more time in the UK.
She told me: “I bought a place here, so I’m moving. Yes, it’s in London. I like it here.”
The long-awaited Glasto should be worthy of a triumph
NEXT week, thousands of music lovers will gather at Worthy Farm after a three-year wait for the return of Glastonbury.
Despite the harrowing wait, the bosses promise it’ll be worth it with their most impressive lineup in years and an update to the legendary Block9 dance zone.
House music icon Honey Dijon, who remixed Lady Gaga’s Free Woman and was rumored to be working on Beyoncé’s upcoming album, will play at New York’s underground nightclub Downlow Friday night.
Star producer Justin Strauss, who has worked with Tina Turner and Luther Vandross, will perform on Saturday. For the first time, Block9 has also teamed up with the Notting Hill Carnival to host processions throughout the site, including a 100 percent electric carnival platform, dancers and DJs.
Luckily, the official EE app has the full time of the farm stages, which means I won’t miss this year.
Though I must remember to pack my feathers and sequins for the occasion. . .
