Taylor Swift received some unexpected visitors during her most recent “The Eras Tour” stop at Sofi Stadium.
It was none other than late NBA legend Kobe Bryant’s wife Vanessa and their daughters. Bryant even posted a heartfelt tribute to Swift on Instagram hours before the show.
Swift took the time before the concert ended to give Bianka a tight hug and kiss while also giving the 6-year-old a cute hat.
Vanessa, who appreciated Swift’s gesture, posted the happy moment to her Instagram account and added, “We love you @taylorswift”.
Many Taylor Swift fans were moved to tears after witnessing Swift’s touching gesture, which was the highlight of the night.
Vanessa and her daughter have not been seen in public very often. Bianka in particular. Fans appear to be overjoyed to see Bianka happy.
How is Taylor Swift’s “The Eras Tour” Going?
The 12-time Grammy winner remains one of the music industry’s most powerful figures. During the ongoing tour, the 33-year-old has also contributed significantly to the country’s economy.
Swift’s tour has made quite a stir on social media recently. Many people from all over the world have traveled long distances to see Swift perform.
The Eras Tour broke worldwide ticket sales records. The tour sold over 2.4 million tickets on the first day of the US presale alone, making it the most sold by an artist in a single day, surpassing Robbie Williams, who sold 1.6 million tickets for his Close Encounters Tour in 2005.
According to reports, there was a sudden increase in hotel room sales in the country. Furthermore, it has been reported that Swift could earn up to $1.5 billion from her concerts alone.
Multiplatinum Boston-born and Los Angeles-based global artist BIA release her eagerly awaited new REALLY HER EP, executive produced by Lil Rich, AzizTheShake, and BIA, today via Epic Records.
She marks the release of the EP with the release of the music video for the new single, “Millions,” produced by AzizTheShake and Tim Nihan.
In the video, BIA commands attention as she confidently and charismatically raps to the camera against a clean white backdrop, flaunting an elevated high-fashion aesthetic. Given that the song’s sample is from Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta and has gone viral, one of the show’s most recognizable stars, NeNe Leakes, appears in the video.
The seven-track project also begins boldly with “BIG BUSINESS.” On “Don’t Tell,” she collaborates with Academy® Award winner and hip-hop icon Juicy J.
The EP also includes the fan favorite “LONDON” [feat. J. Cole]. The latter has already surpassed 48 million Spotify streams and 24 million YouTube views for the music video.
BIA’s summer continues. Recently, she collaborated with Tones And I and Diarra Sylla on “BRING IT ON,” the official walkout anthem for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023, which will be played before all 64 games. It has already begun to gain traction on streaming platforms, in addition to plugs from Billboard.
At the same time, she collaborated with Busta Rhymes on the smash “BEACH BALL,” appeared on a Remix of DDG’s “I’m Geekin” with NLE Choppa, and worked with OHGEESY on “Geekaleek,” demonstrating her versatile ability to shine in any setting.
Earlier this year, she served up the electrifying “I’M THAT BITCH” [with Timbaland]. Thus far, it has gathered 10.1 million Spotify streams in addition to 1.6 million YouTube views on the music video. Earning critical acclaim, Complex hailed it as “hard-hitting and drill-influenced,” and PAPER proclaimed, “She sounds great over this sleek, sinewy drill beat, proving just how far she can expand her aesthetic horizons without losing a sense of her identity.”
BIA has always commanded respect with her effortless flow and ear for hooks. Summer after summer she has delivered one addictive track after another, including her double platinum single “Whole Lotta Money,” which got a remix featuring Nicki Minaj. Now, BIA levels up yet again, taking her spot at the forefront of modern hip-hop.

Busta Rhymes, a 12-time GRAMMY® Award nominee and one of the most influential rappers of all time, returns with a brand new single titled “BEACH BALL” featuring BIA, ushering in what promises to be a monumental and massive era.
The record has a thick bassline thumps in the background as BIA sets the scene with an attitude-laden verse on a soundscape helmed by lauded producer Hitmaka.
Busta leans into the pocket with charisma and confidence, delivering hyper-quotable bars punctuated by his trademark punchlines. Their call-and-response comes to a raunchy, raw, and raucous conclusion. As a downright dynamic summer anthem, “BEACH BALL” bridges eras and styles.
The accompanying video features BIA and Busta on the beach as life literally passes them by—along with cameos from friends like DJ Khaled, Rick Ross, CJ, El Alfa, and others! It perfectly captures the song’s energy.
Most importantly, it heralds the release of his tenth full-length album, as well as The Conglomerate ENT. /Epic Records debut album, both of which are set to drop later this year. Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God, released in 2020, debuted at #7 on the Billboard 200.
Busta Rhymes has returned, and he’s bigger, bolder, and better than ever!
