TWITTER IS TO DE-ROOT VINE FROM ITS SOCIAL NETWORK PORTFOLIO 181

Vine, a Twitter subsidiary, made the news official on Medium today. The headline of the post is “Important News about Vine,”

Since 2013, millions of people have turned to Vine to laugh at loops and see creativity unfold. Today, we are sharing the news that in the coming months we’ll be discontinuing the mobile app.

Nothing is happening to the apps, website or your Vines today. We value you, your Vines, and are going to do this the right way. You’ll be able to access and download your Vines. We’ll be keeping the website online because we think it’s important to still be able to watch all the incredible Vines that have been made. You will be notified before we make any changes to the app or website.

Thank you. Thank you. To all the creators out there — thank you for taking a chance on this app back in the day. To the many team members over the years who made this what it was — thank you for your contributions. And of course, thank you to all of those who came to watch and laugh every day.

What’s next? We’ll be working closely with creators to make sure your questions are answered and will work hard to do this the right way. We’ll be sharing more details on this blog and our Twitter account, and will notify you through the app when we start to change things.

– Team Vine & Twitter

After an initial explosion in popularity, the Vine platform slowly withered. Still, as of August 2015, it boasted 200 million monthly viewers — just half of Instagram’s active user base, but still an enviable number. Whatever that number decreased to in the past year must have signaled to owner Twitter that it’s time to move on.

Some of Vine’s biggest creators, like Cameron Dallas, and Shawn Mendes, saw the writing on the wall and transitioned onto other platforms, mainly YouTube.

EXCLUSIVE: STERLING INFINITY PREMIERES HIS NEW TRACK “#HYPNOTIZED” 58

Having first discovered his passion for song-writing and performing in gospel music, Sterling Infinity’s voice soon earned him attention from anyone fortunate enough to witness him on a stage and he quickly moved from performing in churches to playing historic and iconic venues such as Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall.

Now, here in 2018, Sterling has embraced his love of pop music and intertwined it with flashes of R&B and house styles, to create the persona and the sound that so many have come to know and love. With an empowering, captivating vocal prowess – a seemingly effortless range and a stunning rich vibrato – Sterling’s career continues to go from strength to strength as more and more music fans on both sides of the Atlantic discover his gift for themselves.

With comparisons to the likes of much loved and much missed icons including David Bowie, Freddie Mercury and Prince, Sterling Infinity is now set to launch himself further onto the global stage with the release of his self-titled deluxe edition album on July 20th. In the meantime, ThisIsTheLatest are delighted to premiere his new and deeply hypnotic single “#Hypnotized (Pyramid Black Remix)”, about which Sterling says:

“When I wrote and arranged the track, I wanted to write something that was timeless and would never be dated – that people of the future would still love the beat and rhythm. For me, house music is timeless. This is synth-rock meets house.”

Give “#Hypnotized” a listen below and for more information on Sterling Infinity, visit his website, give his page a like on Facebook or follow him on Twitter.

KENDRA BLACK PREMIERES NEW SINGLE “DANGERLESS” 93

Kendra Black, an Italian born, classically trained ballet dancer, is most certainly making her mark on the music world. Having received considerable attention from media outlets and music fans on both side of the Atlantic thanks to her single “Rude”, which featured Snoop Dogg, Kendra Black’s career has continued to rise ever since. Now, following the release of her debut EP The Edge in December, a collection which was produced by the acclaimed Trend Def Studios team, Black is launching into the summer months with her new track “Dangerless” which ThisIsTheLatest are delighted to premiere.

Asked about the inspiration and power behind the song, Black said: “The beauty of ‘Dangerless’ is that the track inspires the courage to build your reality by finding the strength in love, rather than losing yourself into lifestyles that are often damaging and destructive.”

With performances in France, the Caribbean, Monte-Carlo and the US already under her belt, Black is currently on a Spring US tour, impressing crowds all over the country. As her EP continues to win over fans both old and new, the rest of 2018 is certainly looking good for this gifted performer.
