Linkin Park’s frontman Chester Bennington was found lifeless Thursday morning, which coincidentally was also Chris’ birthday, in his home at Palos Verdes Estates in Los Angeles. The singer was said to have committed suicide.


The talented singer was known for his screams and vocal grit. He battled drug and alcohol addiction, which he claimed to be sober from since 2011. Linkin Park just released their seventh studio album One More Light and was already gearing up for a world tour to promote it. Chester was one of Chris’ closest friends and also the godfather of his son Christopher. He performed Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” at Chris’ funeral two months ago. Watch the video below of both Chris and Chester singing Temple of the Dog’s “Hunger Strike.” Chester was 41. – THE D

Together with Vine star Josh Ovalle, Wolfhard placed his feet behind the camera to create a music video for Spendtime Palace’s “Sonora.”

The video sets a romance between two teenagers during the 21st century in California starring Wolfhard himself as one of the protagonists and his love interest Iris Apatow from another Netflix hit, Love. Showing exceptional skills for the music video, Wolfhard mentioned that he has been learning from Stranger Things’ directors The Duffer Brothers.

Aside from acting and directing, the Canadian actor also shares his fine voice by doing covers of Mac DeMarco’s songs and being a lead vocalist of the band Calipurnia. – ONE, TWO, THERESE

But gratefully, they get to release a sigh of relief when Gambino later clarified that he’d only drop his stage name, as he no longer deems it necessary.

And now, with his single Redbone reaching double platinum and hitting its highest on the charts, we’ll all go back in time on this week’s Tunesday to remember this rapper’s sick beats and jams on his 10 best songs as Gambino served by his astounding raps and bone-chilling vocals.


With pitched-up, sultry falsettos and slow-paced, catchy funk beats, it’s not surprising how this single reached double platinum because this will definitely leave you in trance while shivers are running down your spine.


Heart pounding moments are usually romantic, but definitely not with this Childish Gambino hit, which will leave your lungs gasping and your heart racing with the steady build-up and bittersweet ending.

“Lights Turned On”

 Starting on with a strong rap and finishing off with a soft vocal, this jam will make your head lights go off with its astonishing contrast combination.

“Freaks and Geeks”

Genius is what Childish Gambino showed in this tune with his snarky references and clever punch lines while dressed in his vibrant red hoodie with multiple bright lights.

“Got This Money”

Genuine confessions undeniably swoon anyone over, and he didn’t do just that with this single. He would also steal your heart and tuck it in his pocket full of money he would happily spend for you.


Instead of sobering you up while this tune on, it will likely get you drunker and make you join him with his swaggering grooves during this sick beat interlude.


Sit down and warm yourself up with this tune of his burning and passionate rap doused by a dark-themed, chilling video you would see out of those horror movies.

“So Into You (cover)”

His voice would seem to be gliding on your skin as you listen to his rendition of Tamia R&B song while delivering a punch and taste of his own sensual flavor.

“That Power”

He will replenish your strength with this powerful, heartfelt song while unraveling the full extent of storytelling with his unexpected monologue on the end that will touch your heart – maybe even more than the song will ever do.

“Rolling in the Deep (remix featuring Childish Gambino)”

Mashing up his badass rap and Adele’s velvety vocals shouldn’t be possible but it is and it’ll give you an unforgettable, satisfying eargasm – leaving to haunt you and make you wanting for more. – THIRD WIL
