Published

on

Carl Chery, Apple Music’s head of artist curation overseeing hip-hop and R&B programming, is leaving the tech giant, Variety has learned. According to sources, Chery is headed for a position at Spotify where the streaming service’s RapCaviar playlist is among its most popular destinations. Last month, RapCaviar curator Tuma Basa left the company after three years for YouTube.

At Apple Music, Chery developed popular playlists as well, namely A-List: Hip-Hop and A-List: R&B. He was also responsible for securing two Apple exclusive releases from Chance The Rapper, including the Grammy Award-winning album, “Coloring Book.” Cherry’s additional credits include playing a key early role in breaking such artists as Cardi B, Bryson Tiller,  Post Malone, Khalid, Daniel Caesar, 6LACK and H.E.R.

A former music journalist who has written for SOHH.com, XXL and BET, Cherry joined Apple in 2014 as part of the company’s Beats By Dre/Beats Music acquisition.

As Variety reported, Apple Music recently named Oliver Schusser as new lead for Apple Music worldwide. The service also recently passed 40 million paid subscribers.

As of January, Spotify claimed 70 million paying subscribers worldwide. The Swedish company went public on April 3 and its market cap is currently valued at $25.5 billion.

Off-White Is Now The Most Popular Brand In The World

Virgil Abloh's luxury Italian streetwear label Off-White has been named the “hottest fashion brand in the world”.

Over the past year, the brand has gone from strength-to-strength, thanks, in part, to highly-publicized collaborations with Ikea and Nike and Abloh’s appointment as artistic director of household name-brand Louis Vuitton.

Off-White topped a quarterly index compiled by Lyst, a global fashion search platform, by examining Google search data, sales, and social media mentions. Lyst singled out the company as the number one brand among fashion fans today, surpassing established names such as Gucci and Balenciaga.

Abloh's label is a big hit with global celebrities and has been worn by model Bella Hadid, and singers Rihanna and Beyoncé.

Motorola is in hot water: smartphone P30 bears a strong resemblance to Iphone X

Published

There is a new Android phone on the market – the Motorola P30, which would cost you roughly $350. People, however, might easily mistake it for a device that costs three times as much: the $1,000 Apple iPhone X, which was launched last fall.

Photos of the new smartphone were official released on Thursday, and not only do the phones share a lot of design details — a vertical camera, a “notch” on the front of the screen — the promotional images look pretty much the same.

Tech fans and enthusiasts did not waste time and immediately criticized the Levovo-owned phonemaker for copying Apple's design.
