Last week, Spotify celebrated the opening of its immersive Halloween Costume Pop-Up with an event in New York featuring Jameela Jamil as guest DJ.

Jamil played tracks from artists like Cardi B, Kanye West and TLC while wearing one of the sparkliest items available at Spotify’s pop-up – a replica of the Billie Eilish spider-covered crown featured in the singer-songwriter’s “you should see me in a crown” music video.

A self-confessed fan of Eilish, Jamil later posted a photo of herself in the crown on Instagram Stories, saying “I am Silly Eilish. The less cool third sibling.” Eilish reposted, “OMG NO.”

A highlight of the event was a presentation by Spotify’s VP, Global Executive Creative Director, Alex Bodman, who explained to guests the inspiration behind each costume accessory on display, including a replica of the live python Britney Spears famously draped around her shoulders during her 2001 MTV VMA’s performance of “I’m a Slave 4 U.” Also, featured is nail art from popular Latin artist Bad Bunnythe Lil Nas X rhinestone-accented jacket patch you see in his “Old Town Road” music video and a replica of Trippie Redd’s diamond-crusted fang grillz.

The overall theme of the pop-up is “Stay Scary,” and Spotify worked closely with all 12 artists involved in curating the approach to Halloween.

“Halloween is about celebrating the best in pop culture,” says Bodman. “We wanted to highlight some of the iconic artists who have thrilled, challenged and even shocked us, by inviting consumers to a pop-up they can truly immerse themselves in. It’s a celebration of iconic moments in music history and connects fans and artists in a way that only Spotify can.”

Just In Time for Halloween, Cody Vavrik Delivers “F**K YOU WANT” [New Video]

Cody Vavrik is not you. Although he hails from suburbia Cody hopes to transcend the stereotype of the so-called average white kid from the burbs. Cody wants to break stereotype period. Asking his fans to “dig deeper than the surface,” Cody intentionally distort his face in photos stating that “this ins not about what I look like” but more about how we feel about everything that is happening around us. “F**K YOU WANT, his first single says it all in the title.

The official song lays it all out there from the start. On the surface it feels like that laid back tune that meanders its way forward with ease as the goth like melodies lead us into fun drop which comes with a hardness that gives a glimpse into “the cray cray that makes us all unique.”

Cody says “I know you like it,” as if he is enticing us to admit the fact that the burbs might just be a little more urban than the right might want to admit.

“FYW” was produced by the House Music pioneers at Slang Music Group (Trax Records, The 312) with beats courtesy of Arnold Hennings.

Fly Visual: Alus – “Good Over Here”

While her single “Talk It” featuring Dougie F continues to receive praise and NYC radio play, ALUS serves up a post-Halloween special visual for her song “Good Over Here.”

In the music video, a guy tries to throw some game towards ALUS and her friends, and the results take a wrong turn he never would have expected. Let’s just say, that he definitely learned his lesson due to the outcome at the end.

Also, we’re loving the TLC “No Scrubs” inspired banger and the video does the song justice.
