Quavo Wants To Write For Rihanna And Shawn Mendes For A Sad But Relatable Reason

Quavo is a man of many talents. The most outspoken member of Migos has been everything from a star quarterback in high school to one of the most sought out feature artists in music. In a new interview with Hot 97, the Atlanta renaissance man discussed his dream collaborators.

“I’d like to do a song for Rihanna,” he said. “I’d like to do something for like a Shawn Mendes, something like that. I just want to show, I got a lot of those songs in my hard drive, but I don’t think if I release ‘em the people could like understand them coming from me.”

While Quavo isn’t ready to release his pop songs as a solo artist, he did share how Beyoncé and Jay-Z ended up recording another song he wrote.

“I actually did ‘Stir Fry’ and ‘Apeshit’ at the same time,” Quavo shared. “Me and Pharrell was recording at Chalice. ‘Apeshit’ was supposed to make Culture II. We did two records. I just picked ‘Stir Fry’ to go on the album. He called me back and was like, ‘Yo, B and Jay got the record.’”

The “L A M B T A L K” artist then described the first time he saw Beyoncé perform ‘Apeshit” live.

“She killin’ it,” he continued. “Nah, she doing it way better than me. She killin’ it. She bringing dance moves and choreo. I went to the show. I watched the whole show, because she do it at then end of the show. The anticipation for ‘Apeshit,’ I felt I like start sweating. Just watching the show and it was so hype and exciting. I was just waiting on ‘Apeshit’ the whole time and then when she played it, I was almost walking out. I came all the way back.”

Would you be down for a Shawn Mendes song written by Quavo?

Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, And Logic With Ryan Tedder Will Perform At The 2018 VMAs

Every year, the MTV Video Music Awards stage becomes a glittering showcase on which the biggest acts of the year can bring their songs to life. This year, it’s really going to reach the heavens — thanks to Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, and Logic with Ryan Tedder, who will all perform at the 2018 VMAs.

Ari’s set to bring the divinity-channeling “God Is a Woman” to the stage just a few days after her upcoming album, Sweetener, drops; it’s also her first time back performing at the VMAs since the steamy cardio session she shared with Nicki Minaj for “Side to Side” in 2016. Ari also has five VMA noms to boast about this year, including Video of the Year (for “No Tears Left to Cry”) and Artist of the Year.

Mendes, meanwhile, will return with guitar in hand to deliver “In My Blood,” the lead single from his self-titled 2018 release, after rocking the house (and nearly disappearing into the crowd) last year for “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back.” “In My Blood” nabbed one of Mendes’s three noms, including Best Pop.

After a powerful and poignant rendition of “1-800-273-8255” at the 2017 VMAs, Logic is back with a brand new single called “One Day.” He’ll get some help performing it on this year’s stage from OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, who features on the track. Logic’s nominated twice this year for “1-800,” including Best Collaboration and Video With a Message.

This new slate of performers join an already packed show, including an explosive performance by Jennifer Lopez, who’s also set to receive the storied Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Meanwhile, Cardi B and Jay-Z and Beyoncé The Carters lead the nominations with 10 and eight, respectively — but it’s always anybody’s game. You can help pick the winners right now by voting for your faves, so you’d better get to it.

The 2018 MTV Video Music Awards will air live from Radio City Music Hall on Monday, August 20 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Voting is now open at vma.mtv.com!

    Shawn Powers “HARDCORE HORROR” Exhibition @ Magic Gallery

    For New York City-based artist and pro-skater Shawn Powers’ first solo exhibition, Gogy Esparza’s studio/gallery space Magic hosts “HARDCORE HORROR” now until October 3. While roaming the streets of downtown Manhattan attending to his early creative outlet of graffiti writing, Powers would often source scrap materials and found objects to skate on back home. Transporting these materials however, left the young creative with plenty of cuts along the way, which then became an inspiration to create blood paintings, many of which will be on display at Magic. For those interested, “HARDCORE HORROR” will kick off tonight at 6pm EST with an open reception.
