P!nk Announces ‘Cover Me in Sunshine’ Song With Daughter Willow

UPDATE: Two days after debuting a snippet on TikTok, P!nk took to Twitter on Wednesday (Feb. 10) to announce that she and her daughter Willow Sage Hart will release the original song “Cover Me in Sunshine” on Friday. “We thought we’d put it out around Valentine’s Day as a big old hug and kiss to all y’all,” P!nk says in the Twitter video.

P!nk brought some sunshine to TikTok for her first video on the video platform Monday, and she got some help from 9-year-old daughter Willow.

The mother-daughter duo kick off their first clip by finishing up a short chat, where Willow concludes with, “Or I could just sing ‘Cover Me in Sunshine,'” and delves right into the sweet original song.

“Cover me in sunshine/ Shower me in good times/ Tell me that the world’s been spinning/ Since the beginning and everything will be all right/ Just cover me in sunshine,” she sings before the 41-year-old pop superstar pops into the video frame for the first time and cheers her on.

This isn’t the first time Willow’s followed in her mother’s musical footsteps: The two teamed up to perform a heartwarming cover of “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)” by Nat King Cole for The Disney Holiday Singalong last year.

Karol G’s ‘Bichota’ Hits No. 1 on Latin Airplay Chart

Karol G nabs her ninth No. 1 on the Latin Airplay chart (dated Feb. 13), as “Bichota” climbs 5-1. The female anthem pushes to the top thanks to a 23% spike in audience impressions, to 12 million, earned in the week ending Feb. 7, according to MRC Data.

The audience improvement also makes the song just the second No. 1 by a solo woman, unaccompanied by any other artist, to reach No. 1 this decade — and both are by Karol G.

Greatest gainers for the song in the tracking week were: WODA San Juan, P.R. (up 392,000 in audience); WPAT New York (up 347,000); WSKQ New York (up 307,000); and KAMA Houston (up 268,000).

Before “Bichota,” Karol previously reached the Latin Airplay summit completely solo with “Ay, Dios Mío!” (Oct. 10, 2020), both as a female soloist. She’s also secured a spot at the penthouse seven other times, all via collaborative efforts, dating back to “Mi Cama,” with J Balvin, featuring Nicky Jam. The triple-billed act spent one week atop the ranking in August 2018.

Karol G is the sixth female soloist to reach No. 1 on Latin Airplay with a song unaccompanied by another act since 2010. Let’s take a look at the leaderboard:

Artist, Title, Debut/Peak Date
Gloria Estefan, “Hotel Nacional,” Jan. 14, 2012 (debut)
Paulina Rubio, “Me Gustas Tanto,” Feb. 11, 2012
Leslie Grace, “Will U Still Love Me Tomorrow,” Oct. 27, 2012
Katherine Alexander, “Put It In a Kiss,” Jan. 18, 2014
Jennifer Lopez, “El Anillo,” July 14, 2018
Karol G, “Ay, Dios Mío!,” Oct. 10, 2020
Karol G, “Bichota,” Feb. 13, 2021

Aside from its Latin Airplay coronation, the Ovy on the Drums-produced track captures its highest ranking on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart, jumping 75-72. Meanwhile, on the airplay-, streaming-, digital sales-blended Hot Latin Songs chart, “Bichota” returns to its No. 3 high (4-3), where its spent seven previous weeks.

Ovy on the Drums, Karol G & Danny Ocean’s “Miedito o Qué” Hits Top 10 on Latin Rhythm: The trio’s collaboration “Miedito o Qué” reaches a new high on Latin Rhythm Airplay, as it ascends 15-8 with 6 million in audience, up 57%. The Latin pop-rhythmic tune earns Karol her 10th top 10. Ovy and Ocean each claim their first. The song also grows 26-14 on Latin Airplay and re-enters Hot Latin Songs at No. 33 (both new peaks).

Catfisher Pretending to Be Bruno Mars Scams Texas Woman Out of $100,000

A Houston man appeared in court this week, accused of impersonating Bruno Mars on Instagram to romance a woman and scam her out of $100,000.

According to ABC30, Chinwendu Azuonwu was charged with third-degree felony money laundering last month, though he was recently taken into custody. The catfish incident happened between September and October 2018, after a person pretending to be the “24K Magic” singer reached out to a 63-year-old north Texas woman via Instagram.

The woman told police that the fraudulent Mars made her believe he was interested in pursuing a relationship with her, and she subsequently fell in love with whom she thought was the real singer. She also told investigators that the account convinced her of its authenticity by sending her a number of texts and photos from tour, telling her that he wanted to quit the tour to be with her.

Soon enough, the fake account asked the woman for a $10,000 check to a “friend of the band” for “tour expenses,” and two days later, asked for $90,000, according to ABC30.

Each amount was deposited in separate accounts, owned by Azuonwu and an alleged accomplice, Basil Amadi. Both men were charged with money laundering, and Azuonwu’s bail was set at $30,000.
