MIKE POSNER FINISHES HIS CROSS-COUNTRY WALK
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Mike Posner (POHS’-ner) made it. Yesterday, Posner posted Instagram photos of himself in the Pacific Ocean in Los Angeles. It was just over six months after he walked nearly 3,000 miles across the U.S. from Asbury Park, New Jersey. Posner had said last week he was taking a vow of silence for the final leg and he asked fans to let him do the last day alone. Posner had said before the walk that he did it because it was always on his list of things to do in life. Posner was about three-fifths of the way through his journey in August when he was hospitalized with a rattlesnake bite.

JON PARDI GOES BEYOND "DRUNK COWBOY DANCING"
NASHVILLE (AP) - Jon Pardi wanted to make a video that showcased dancing beyond what he calls "drunk cowboy dancing." That’s how the "Heartache Medication" video concept came about. One thing Pardi did not expect was people sending their own videos of that dance and wanting to know how to do the whole thing. Pardi says they only really went left and right in the video and he did not turn to switch directions, but he says he did not mean to make a line dance video anyway.

YOUNGBOY NEVER BROKE AGAIN HITS NUMBER ONE WITH "AI YOUNGBOY 2"
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Youngboy Never Broke Again earns his first number-one album with "AI Youngboy 2," almost entirely because of streaming. Billboard reports the album sold only 3,000 copies, but because of the magazine’s formula that accounts for streaming, "AI Youngboy 2" had 110,000 equivalent album units in the past week. That puts it at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart. Post Malone is second with "Hollywood’s Bleeding." "Over It" by Summer Walker is third, with DaBaby’s "Kirk" in fourth. Lil TJay makes its debut in fifth with "True 2 Myself."
