Stevie Wonder and Elton John released a music video on Thursday for their 2021 collaboration, “Finish Line.”

Taken from Elton John’s album The Lockdown Sessions, the heartwarming visual features a montage of video footage and images through the decades depicting pivotal moments of life, including the pandemic. Images of the two musicians, both of the present and the past, are sprinkled throughout the video, showcasing the long-running friendship and companionship they share. 

The new video marks the latest for the legendary duo and arrives over 35 years since featured together on the hit charity song, “That’s What Friends Are For.”

Alicia Keys says she remembers the moment she realized her single, “Girl on Fire,” would be more than just a hit song.

“I called my husband (Swizz Beatz) and I said, ‘Babe, I think something special is happening right now,'” she said in an interview with USA Today.   

In honor of the track’s 10-year anniversary, the 15-time Grammy-winning musician released the Girl on Fire graphic novel. The book’s purpose is to continue the story first presented in the 2012 song. Keys said, “You definitely get to imagine who this girl on fire is.”

Congratulations are in order for grown-ish star Yara Shahidi, who took to her Instagram to post the exciting new that she recently submitted her undergraduate degree thesis.

The actress has been studying at Harvard University and after completing the 136 pages of writing, she commemorated the event by flexing her stats in the middle of a snowy street.
