Half a million views in half an hour

The BriefingPosted on April 4, 2019April 4, 2019Peter Robinson Not a bad start for the new BLACKPINK video.

The BriefingPosted on May 15, 2019May 15, 2019Peter Robinson Parts of pop do need a hero right now and it's fair to assume Charles 100 either is that hero or knows them. Her new single Blame It On Your Love, which features Lizzo and premiered tonight, probably isn't enough on its own to turn the…
