Another breakout music artist with Albanian roots, Bebe Rexha, was nominated for two Grammys on Sunday, the first in the "Best New Artist" category beside Lipa and the second in the "Country Duo/Group Performance" category for her collaboration with Florida Georgia Line, 'Meant to Be'.

In clear shock, the 23-year-old British singer took the stage and gave another shout out to the fellow female artists in her category. The remark was a clear reference to outgoing Recording Academy president Neil Portnow and his comments after the 2018 Grammys that women needed to "step up" in order to receive recognition in the future. "You'll be hearing from me soon", she said. She added: "I guess this year we've really stepped up". "I think do you girl as long as you do you and I do me will be good", she said.

It's unfortunate that Lipa wasn't given time to finish her speech, but Lipa continued the discussion she opened at Grammy press rooms after the ceremony was over.

Solo and Duo modes might be coming to Apex Legends
Another day, another story about how Respawn's new free-to-play battle royale game Apex Legends is knocking it out of the park. He dealt 5,376 damage in a period of 18 minutes and 11 seconds, and amassed 33 solo kills in total.

Her sixth single "New Rules", which came off her self-titled debut studio album, was her first number one in Britain - and the first by a female solo artist to top the United Kingdom charts since 2015's "Hello" by Adele. "I was like, 'This is incredible.' They're artists that I love and admire, and I'm so glad to be able to share that with them".

Dua Lipa is the latest star to throw her support behind 21 Savage following his ICE arrest.
