News of the Day:
+ Periscope has brought us a musical gift from above, as Azealia Banks shared a 90-second clip of a demo she had cut for Rihanna's ANTI . Along with the track, Banks played a song from her new album, Business and Pleasure, called "Playhouse." An unheard demo and new song all in one night? Thank you, AB.
+ In light of Earth Day, Reformation is launching some eco-friendly initiatives to celebrate the world we call home.

As a thank you to customers who are helping out the environment, one shopping spree at a time, Reformation will be launching a perks program. Going green has never looked better. Literally.
+ Dove is celebrating women of all hair types with the launch of their new #LoverYourHair campaign. The company wants to challenge the common depictions of what "beautiful hair" signifies and present this idea in a brand-new light. According to Dove, 86 percent of U.S. women believe that media and society put a ton of pressure on women to have hair that looks a particular way. It's time to flip off these beauty standards and make sure you do you. Watch the full film below to be hair-spired.

See how the pair brought something new to the old, in the best way possible, on Domino.
