8@8: Your Morning Scoop

Beyoncé will be returning to the stage this October

Today is...

The first day of the fall season!

News of the Day:

+ Ring the alarm: Us Weekly has announced that Beyoncé and husband Jay Z are joining forces for a special benefit concert on October 17 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, to raise funds and support for those affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. The concert will also mark Beyoncé’s long-awaited return to the stage after giving birth to twins, Rumi and Sir, back in June.

+ Rihanna continues her reign over the beauty industry. The superstar just announced a brand-new Fenty beauty holiday collection, slated to drop on October 13. May our wallets rest in peace. See the collection in full, below.

+ The Weeknd's second collaboration with H&M is now available to see in full. The “Die For You” singer posted a cryptic video teaser to his Instagram earlier this month, hinting at the partnership before officially announcing it in a subsequent post that shows him wearing a plum satin varsity jacket bearing a large "W." It was just a first taste of the impressive 18-piece collection made up of all the tees, crewneck sweatshirts, and outerwear you could ever want, each embellished with bold graphics and healthy doses of Weeknd/XO logomania. See the full collection, slated to release September 28, here.

+ Speaking of merch, Lana Del Rey is slated to drop her Lust For Life merchandise today, so be sure to keep your eyes (and wallets) peeled for its release. In the meantime, see some of the merch (modeled by Del Rey herself) in her Instagram video, below.

+ Khalid goes into full IDGAF mode on his new song, “Perfect.” The song might be a different kind of sound compared to the more elaborate tunes on his debut album, American Teen, but the emotional track beautifully demonstrates his raw talent and incredible range. Listen to “Perfect,” below.
