THE MELDING OF MUSIC’s POP STARS AND MOVIES
Recording artists becoming movie stars is nothing new. But it is crazy amazing for a successful pop artist to become a critically acclaimed actor. From Cher, Frank Sinatra, Barbara Streisand and Jennifer Hudson taking home Oscars to Lady Gaga, Queen Latifah, Mary J Blige, Bette Midler, Diana Ross, Mark Wahlberg and Will Smith having Oscar nominations for their acting chops, the double threat is real. Hell, there’s been great performances from recording artists on screen from the likes of Justin Timberlake, Prince, Mariah Carey, Elvis Presley, Ice Cube, Harry Styles, Lenny Kravitz, Beyonce, Eminem, Rihanna and many more. This year Pop stars are once again taking on the immense challenge of the big screen. Ed Sheeran’s playing himself (ok, not as great of a challenge as some roles…but still) in the Beatles inspired rom-com, “Yesterday”. Jennifer Lopez, Cardi B and Lizzo are in the modern Robin Hood/stripper (yes I just put those words together) story, “Hustlers” out this September. And the much anticipated movie musical “Cats”, set to drop in December, will star Jennifer Hudson, Jason Derulo and the “could she be cast more perfectly”, Taylor Swift.
This weekend I’m taking on the best party music challenge with exclusive HK remixes of some of these recording artists turned movie stars. Get ready to turn up the volume on remixes of hit tracks from Ed Sheeran, Lizzo and Taylor Swift. Plus I’ll be mashing in mashups and blending bangers from Shawn Mendes, Halsey, Bazzi, Katy Perry, Jonas Brothers, Ellie Goulding, Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars, Panic! At The Disco, Billie Eilish and so much more! Oh yeah! It’s a party over here! And it’s all going down on HITS 96 every Friday Night at 8pm! Remember…if it's hot, if it's new and it makes you wanna move…you're In The Mix with HK™
