Justin Timberlake Reportedly “Finalizing” Super Bowl Halftime Deal

The last time Justin Timberlake performed at a Super Bowl Halftime Show, things did not go well. But it looks like he’ll get another shot at it. Us Weekly reports that Timberlake “has been asked to” perform at next year’s Super Bowl in Minneapolis and that he’s “finalizing” the deal to make it happen.

There’s some chance that the show will also include Timberlake’s occasional collaborator Jay-Z, but right now it’s more likely to just be Timberlake.

Spotify Valuation Jumps to $16 Billion Ahead of IPO

The last time we discussed Spotify’s IPO ambitions was mid-May. Then, Bloomgberg Business were reporting that the tech streaming giant was poised to go public by Q3 2017 via direct listing at a $13 billion valuation. While we edge closer to the third quarter there hasn’t really been any signs of that coming to fruition soon but potential investors will be pleased to learn that the company’s valuation has since jumped to $16 billion.

Private trades of Spotify stock have been made with a valuation of $16 billion according to Financial Post sources. Sources noted the rising subscription numbers and strong demand as potential evidence that Spotify could even hit the $20 billion valuation when it goes public. In July, the company announced it had passed 60 billion paying subscribers in. An increase of 55 million in just 5 years.

According to GP Bullhound technology investment and advisory firm, and Spotify shareholder, there’s a higher ceiling in sight. In a report they estimated that the company could reach the $50 billion mark within a few years.

Looking back, in 2015 Spotify had just surpassed the total value of the U.S. music industry at $8.4 billion – half of what it’s worth today.

Victor Oladipo Teams With 2 Chainz On Uplifting ‘Rope A Dope’

NBA guard and high-flyer Victor Oladipo surprised many (including The DopeHouse) when he revealed that he would make the jump to music. However, unlike Damian Lillard (and to a lesser extent, LeBron James and Kevin Durant), Victor put the raps to the left for some soulful singing, capably covering Donny Hathaway.

Victor has now teamed with 2 Chainz for his second single, “Rope A Dope.” The song is a direct response to Agent Orange’s inflammatory comments toward athletes who kneel during the national anthem — to protest the disproportionate amount of injustices and police brutality against people of color — at their games. “I wanted to address what was going on and bring awareness to it, but in a positive manner,” he says. “I want people to feel inspired and motivated to be great, and to stand up and have confidence. We need to come together as a country to deal with these problems. We aren’t going to solve anything unless we’re united.”

Oladipo’s debut EP, Songs For You, drops October 6th.
