Sir Elton John, one of the world’s brightest stars, set Miami ablaze for the last time on April 28.

On April 12, Anitta — the Brazilian singer currently making a name for herself around the world — dropped her studio album “Versions of Me.” Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Anitta experienced a sudden rise to the top when her song “Envolver” made history as the first solo song by a Latin artist to peak at the top spot of the global Spotify chart after going viral on Tik Tok.

Red Hot Chili Peppers, the American rock band formed in 1983, released their latest project “Unlimited Love” on April 1. The 17-song album consists of upbeat Californian hits. For decades, the group blended elements of psychedelic rock, alternative rock, funk metal and punk rock.
