Within the last several years, Jordan Ward has emerged as one of R&B’s rising stars. Developing an affinity for music and dance at a very early age, Jordan polished his skillset after first trying his hand as a choir member before transitioning into musical theatre. His influences include a diverse roster of music luminaries ranging from Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Lauryn Hill, Kanye West, Tupac, The Notorious B.I.G., Nas, and more. After first experimenting with rap, Ward later focused on singing and dancing. By 18, he moved to Los Angeles and joined Justin Bieber’s Purpose Tour in 2016. Ward’s dance abilities earned him gigs as a dancer for Janet Jackson and Beyonce, as he appeared in the singer’s Homecoming documentary for her epic Coachella performance.

In 2017, Ward began his musical quest after releasing his EP, A Peak at the Summit. It wasn’t until 2019 that Ward’s breakthrough became the talk of R&B. His debut album ‘Valley Hopefuls’ was propelled by his single “Okok (Hibachi)” and “Sandiego,” which was produced by singer Arin Ray and music producer heavyweight No ID. Now, Ward’s silky croons and elevated songwriting abilities are at peak form as he readies his journey into universal acclaim in the R&B world.

Watch the video for his single “Lil Baby Crush” below:

We love it! That was so sweet. We’ve all had a lil baby crush, right?!

Following the release of his first single, “Lil Baby Crush,” St Louis polymath Jordan Ward unleashes his new EP Remain Calm. The five-track effort proves to be an evocative showcase by the budding singer, who eyes unyielding love and happiness. Established in standout records “Standards” and “Thrive,” Jordan’s buttery vocals and gentle energy are supple enough to keep listeners enthralled for the long run. After a successful trek as an opener on Duckwrth’s ‘A SuperGood Tour’ last month, Remain Calm is the next step in cementing Ward’s leap into stardom. In honor of his new EP, Ward held an intimate release party in Los Angeles to celebrate his journey, where he treated attendees to a live performance.

Lindsay Ell & Everette Take Their ‘Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around’ Cover From TikTok To The Studio

After Lindsay Ell duetted with Everette on TikTok with a cover of ‘Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,’ the artists teamed up to record a video of the song together — and we have the exclusive premiere!

Lindsay Ell and Everette (comprised of Brent Rupard and Anthony Olympia) have officially teamed up to release a stunning cover of Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty’s “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around.” The trio got together in the studio to record the cover, and HollywoodLife is EXCLUSIVELY premiering the video of their collaboration. Lindsay, Brent and Anthony all play guitar while singing their vocals for the track. The video features Lindsay singing solo, as well as by the microphone with the guys for a sing-along.

This collaboration came about after the artists teamed up on TikTok. Everette released a video of themselves singing the song, asking fans to “duet with [them]” on the track, and Lindsay happily joined in. Afterward, they decided to take things a step further and actually record a full version together.

“Lindsay is a rockstar,” Everette told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “After she duetted our video on TikTok, we knew we had to take this to the next level and hit up the studio. It was an amazing moment behind the microphones getting to hear our guitars and voices together.” Lindsay added, “I’ve always been such an Everette fan. Their harmonies, their sound, it’s truly unique. When I got an opportunity to sing Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty with them, it was an absolute no brainer.”

Two Democrats Vote With GOP to Reject Biden’s Vaccine Mandates on Businesses

Two Democrats Vote With GOP to Reject Biden’s Vaccine Mandates on Businesses

Two Democrats crossed the aisle to rebuke the Biden administration’s vaccine mandates on businesses with over 100 employees.

Senators Joe Manchin (W.Va.) and Jon Tester (Mont.) joined all Republicans in a vote of 52-48 to pass a Senate resolution repealing vaccine mandates on private businesses on Wednesday.

Sen. Manchin had previously said he was against vaccine mandates on private businesses.

And Sen. Tester said, while he is in favor of the mRNA vaccine, a mandate on private businesses would hurt the economy.

Last night’s vote was the first congressional rebuke of Pres. Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates. He has also lost several key federal court decisions.

The House needs 218 signatures to force a floor vote, and Biden has promised to veto any Congressional effort to repeal his vaccine mandates.

Sen. Mike Braun, (R-Ind), who introduced the resolution, said Biden had no authority to impose the requirements on private businesses.

“This bipartisan vote is a crystal clear message to the @WhiteHouse: Back off, and stop this crazy federal overreach immediately,” he tweeted.
