1. Beyoncé to release new perfume

In addition to her upcoming haircare line, Beyoncé has now revealed plans for a perfume drop dubbed “First Access,” which she “crafted and designed.” Fans who attended her Renaissance World Tour received an email to sign up for notifications when the perfume becomes available. “First Access” will be a U.S. and Canada exclusive and is an Eau de Parfum that boasts notes of golden honey, rose, jasmine, clementine, and amber.

The packaging from the email preview presents that the bottle will be in a funky semi-wide shape with a black and silver colorway. This release will be the icon’s first dip back into the fragrance world since the release of “Heat” which debuted in 2009. There are no options to pre-order “First Access,” but it drops in November and will retail for $160 USD for a 50mL bottle.

2. Burna Boy concert stream heads to Apple Music

On June 3, Burna Boy made history after 60,000 people filled up the London Stadium to watch him, thus making him the first African artist to headline a stadium concert in the UK. This is a feat he has since repeated after headlining the 41,000-capacity Citi Field stadium in New York. Burna Boy’s historic London show is currently streaming to Apple Music users in over 165 countries starting Wednesday, July 19. In an interview with Ebro Darden to preview the live performance, the African Giant shared that he was impressed by the crowds’ energy and grateful for their support. He also shared that the concert is part of his effort in trying to let the world know music is bigger than a genre.

The London Stadium tour is part of the stops for Burna Boy’s Grammy-nominated sixth album “Love, Damini” which reached NO. 1 in 70 countries. The album also holds the record for the biggest first-day and first-week global streams by an album by an African artist.

Khanyi Mbau and her on-and-off boyfriend, Zimbabwean businessman Kudzai Mushonga, recently rekindled their romance after they were rumored to have broken up. Kudzai was vocal on his socials letting people know he had split from Khanyi. On the other hand, Khanyi remained mum and kept it moving while she was back in the country.

Recently, the pair shared snaps of themselves on Instagram all loved-up. “We might bend, but won’t break,” read one post. In a separate Instagram post, Kudzai said, “Forever us my baby, I love you.” The pair are known for their on-and-off relationship, and even though they break up or face issues they always seem to find each other again.

Ayesha Curry has a knack for whipping up delicious meals in the kitchen, but now she is using food as the basis for her new skincare line that caters to sensitive skin. July Skin—inspired by her Jamaican roots—dropped July 11, but The Full Plate author revealed that it took over three years to curate. She said, “When I first had the idea more than three years ago, I thought a launch would be next year.” She added, “Psych! Well over three years later, here we are. When you start something from scratch, the amount of testing — consumer testing and lab testing — that goes into these products really surprised me. It was such a cool process, though.”

This venture for the mom-of-three is personal because she has had her journey with skincare and always wanted to create a line that would treat her face gently and effectively. The debut collection consists of a three-piece set, including Pava Exfoliating Cleanser, Pava Toner, and Irie Power Face Oil. She told the outlet that starting with three products was a deliberate decision to take the guesswork outside of skincare. The line includes ingredients that range from papaya, guava, lychee seed, neem seed, and turmeric root. They are available online at Sweet July, Amazon, Thirteen Lune, and her storefront in Oakland, CA. Beyonce Perfume

5. Jordi Alba to Inter Miami is a done deal

Jordi Alba is braced to join his former Barcelona teammates Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets at Inter Miami. After both Messi’s and Busquets’ high-profile deals to join the MLS franchise, which is part-owned by David Beckham, it seems another is set to tread the path from the Nou Camp to Miami. According to reports, Alba will be Miami’s next signing, with an agreement to snap up the left-back all sorted. The 34-year-old departed Barcelona at the end of the 2022-23 season bringing a trophy-ladened spell to an end. And there could be a fourth former Barcelona star at Inter Miami by the end of the summer, with the club lining up a deal to sign Luis Suarez. The striker, formerly a forward ally of Messi’s, is currently plying his trade for Brazilian club Gremio.
