On Friday, Travis Scott will unveil UTOPIA, which is led by the Bad Bunny and The Weeknd-assisted drop “K-POP.” In anticipation of this, the Houston talent shared one of five covers that will be utilized for vinyl, CD, and merchandise box sets. The image depicts a number of Northern Nigerian men with white contact lenses holding a wad of Naira notes in the passenger seat of a car. “The journey through the album took me all over the world,” Scott revealed. “Can’t wait to finally drop the album. The main cover will drop Thursday [July 27]. Until then, a cover every day. Love you, see you in UTOPIA.”

As promised, the “SICKO MODE” star blessed the masses with even more artwork earlier on Wednesday, July 26, including one that takes an abstract approach to a suggestive group photo. Another Instagram post contains inverted shots of Scott giving high-energy poses — a presumed clue into the aforementioned LP’s subject matter. In addition to the music, fans will be treated to “CIRCUS MAXIMUS,” an accompanying film named after an ancient Roman stadium. As explained via a press release, the flick “is a surreal and psychedelic journey, uniting a collective of visionary filmmakers from around the world in a kaleidoscopic exploration of human experience and the power of soundscapes.”

2. Kizz Daniel set to release fifth album ‘Maverick’

Afrobeats sensation, Kizz Daniel is set to take his fans on a thrilling journey with his upcoming album, “Maverick.” On this album, Kizz Daniel bares his soul, offering a piece of himself that he has kept hidden for some time. “Maverick” delves into themes of love, growth, emotion, resilience, and introspection, inviting listeners to join the singer on a deeply personal and mature musical journey. The album’s tracks feature infectious hooks and thought-provoking lyrics, reflecting his evolution as an artist.

Kizz Daniel elaborates, “Recently, I’ve been trying a more dilute version of Vado just to appease the fans, but this time around, I just decided to go hard.” The star has grown and matured throughout his illustrious career, and this album serves as a testament to his artistic growth and authenticity. “Maverick” is set for release on July 28, and fans can get to experience another impressive body of work from the seasoned hitmaker.

3. South Africa: Cassper Nyovest explains his upcoming album’s delay

Ahead of what was scheduled to be the release date of his anticipated forthcoming album, “Solomon,” Cassper Nyovest has announced he is postponing its release, originally set for July 28. After fans said how they were expecting to hear the new music, the rapper apologized, saying he would reveal the new release date soon. “I’m sorry y’all. The positive news is that all is now fixed and we will have a new date and single in the next week,” he wrote on his Twitter timeline. This comes after Cassper recently assured his fans all was in order. “I’ll be updating you about the album soon. Don’t be worried about my silence, all is in control. Big love.”

4. LaKeith Stanfield reveals he privately married model Kasmere Trice and the pair have welcomed their first child together

LaKeith Stanfield is entirely off the market as he recently expanded his family with his now-wife, model Kasmere Trice Stanfield. An interview with the actor, where he opened up about the life-changing moments, was released on Wednesday, July 26. During the conversation, the newlywed couple revealed they met in Canada, where LaKeith was working. The 31-year-old said initially, “We were just feeling each other out like maybe this will be a cool friend.” But then, “As love does, it just smacked us out of nowhere. I’m working on my music, writing, and writing, and then this person who I was seemingly writing about pops up in my life. It was strange,” he noted.

In December 2022, LaKeith proposed to the 29-year-old model on an island vacation just before her birthday, the publication mentioned. Between then and now, the pair married privately and had a baby, which they both affirmed they wanted to protect and keep sacred. When asked why they decided to share their news now, the couple stated, “We want to be the ones to tell our story. We’re bringing our family forward, so we may inspire others.”

5. Lionel Messi lights up Atlanta United in first start for Inter Miami

Lionel Messi didn’t take long to score in his first start for Inter Miami, finding the back of the net twice in 23 minutes in a 4-0 win. Messi was in the Inter Miami starting XI for the first time against Atlanta United on Tuesday, having come off the bench to score a famous free kick in Friday’s win over Cruz Azul. On Tuesday, Messi combined with his longtime team-mate Sergio Busquets, who lofted a pass over the top of the Atlanta defense. After hitting the post initially, Messi was able to tap home his own rebound to give Miami a 1-0 lead in the club’s second Leagues Cup game.

He made it 2-0 just a few minutes later, taking his goal tally to three in just 58 total minutes of play. The finish came thanks to a cross from Robert Taylor, who teed up the ex-Barcelona man for the second of the day.
