Facebook News Our Favorite 2018 Holiday Songs With RuPaul & More dont-sleep-these-brand-new-holiday-songs-rupaul-lil-jon-more Don’t Sleep On These Brand-New Holiday Songs From RuPaul, Lil Jon & More Twitter Email Tired of the same ol’ holiday songs? We’ve got you covered with this roundup of the best new ones from 2018Ana YglesiasGRAMMYs Dec 24, 2018 – 8:06 am Every year, shortly after Thanksgiving ends, the debate around which holiday song is the best returns, with Mariah Carey an ever-present fixture of the discussion. By the time the holidays creep around, though, chances are those tracks are feeling a little played out. And you know what that means: It’s time for a new playlist.Thanks to the generous spirit of artists including John Legend, Tyler, The Creator, Lil Jon, Ozuna, Aloe Blacc and RuPaul (of “RuPaul’s Drag Race”), there are now a handful of cheerful new holiday tracks you can jam out to. You can listen to our selection below, all of which are original songs released this year (no remakes of “Jingle Bells” or “Santa Baby” here).”Bring Me Love” – John LegendMulti-hyphenate GRAMMY winner John Legend has been pretty busy. Remember when he became the first black man—and youngest person ever—to earn an EGOT (an Emmy, GRAMMY, Oscar and Tony winner) on Sept. 9? Perhaps his schedule had something to do with why the R&B crooner waited to release a proper holiday album, A Legendary Christmas (geddit?) until 2018. It was worth the wait: A Legendary Christmas offers Legend’s take on eight holiday classics, along with six original tracks, including “Bring Me Love.””I Am The Grinch” – Tyler, The CreatorEveryone’s favorite holiday hater, the Grinch, got a makeover this year with a new feature film, complete with a score written by GRAMMY-winning composer Danny Elfman and GRAMMY-nominated rapper Tyler, The Creator. The soundtrack features two tracks by Tyler, including an original song, “I Am The Grinch.””All I Really Want For Christmas” – Lil JonIf you haven’t watched the music video for GRAMMY-nominated rapper/hype-man Lil Jon’s “All I Really Want For Christmas” since it was released on Dec. 17, you’ve been missing out. Spoiler alert: The Kool-Aid Man is still breaking through walls, and all Lil Jon wants “is everything on my list, baby!””Llego La Navidad” – OzunaReggaeton star Ozuna offers a joyful Spanish-language song, whose title translates to “Christmas Is Here,” and is dedicated to his native Puerto Rico, with support from fellow Puerto Rican artists: Christian Nieves and children’s music group Generación Escogida.”Hey Sis, It’s Christmas” – RuPaul feat. MarkaholicQueen bee drag queen RuPaul has gifted us with a third holiday album this year, titled Christmas Party, which follows 2015’s Slay Belles and 1997’s Ho Ho Ho. The album features several new, original songs, including the all-around fabulous “Hey Sis, It’s Christmas” featuring Markaholic, with amazing lyrics like “all of Santa’s elves be giving me life.” RuPaul, you give us life.”I Got Your Christmas Right Here” – Aloe BlaccThe soulful GRAMMY nominee also blessed listeners with a holiday album this year, Christmas Funk, which he said is “Christmas music you can listen to year round.” One of the original songs, “I Got Your Christmas Right Here,” is a cheerful track—and music video—celebrating love and family.Sam Smith Sings “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”Read more

1. MTNL10.4%8.2% A recent study on the rate of call drops by different carriers has highlighted their continuing poor performances, according to the telecom regulator, TRAI. The Call Drop Rate Performance study, though limited to national capital Delhi in its first leg, is the regulator’s efforts to improve the overall service quality.The Mint noted dropped calls (call drop) as those that terminate abruptly for technical reasons before the call is complete. Recently, there were reports that telcom service providers were using new technology to artificially keep the calls connected even though there was no voice exchange from the other end.The regulator said Aircel was using the radio link time out technology to mask call more than other carriers. However, the big four — Airtel, Vodafone, Idea and Reliance Communication — too were requested to further decrease their drop rates. MTNL, the government run telecommunication carrier, was the other service provider monitored for the study.

Sharma told the Mint.The May 2016 study, however, indicated only Vodafone to have had a reduction in its call drop rates in Delhi, while all others lurked where they were or showed increase in call drops against the January 2016 study. Idea’s 2G, with 0.9 percent call drop rates, was better than 2.1 percent seen in January.Except Vodafone and Reliance, all other telecos could not even meet the benchmark in terms of call drops in Delhi region, noted the Mint.A source told the news outlet that the regulator may seek penalising power for itself against faulting telecos. The regulator has already set up a portal to register call drop complaints. It has also warned that not more than 2 percent of the calls on each of the carriers network should be dropped.The study, conducted to analyse the overall service quality offered by the carriers, also focused on three other important parameters of call set-up success rate, signal quality (Rx quality) and blocked call rate.Pro teleco lobby group Broadband India Forum highlighted that the study was welcome as there was a sustained improvement in call set up rate across many telecos. On the call drop issue, another lobby group noted that some chosen areas in Delhi were highly congested. 5. Vodafone2.8%1.4% Companies2G3G 3. Reliance Communication-5.2% 4.

Meghan MarkleGetty ImagesIt looks like Meghan Markle is being put through the ringer, just like Princess Diana was. The Duchess of Sussex faces the same gruelling treatment upon entering the Royal Family as Princess Diana, with both failing to get any training on life as a royal, according to Princess Diana’s former butler.Meghan Markle will have received no training upon entering the Royal Family in 2018 when she married Prince Harry in a lavish Windsor Castle ceremony, according to royal commentator Paul Burrell. And we have to say, that might just be the case as Meghan Markle has been dubbed “Duchess Difficult” by many, including the Royal staff. What the former Hollywood star may need is proper training to become a Royal. As being a celebrity and being a Royal are not the same thing.Reportedly Paul Burrell worked with Diana from 1987 until her death in 1997 and revealed she received very little training to prepare her for royal life. Mr. Burrell spoke to Yahoo’s Royal Box. When asked what training Meghan would have received after marrying into the Royal Family, he said: “Would you believe there is no rulebook. There is no etiquette lesson. There are no advisers…..Nobody prepares people coming into the Royal Family.” Meghan MarkleGetty ImagesMeghan Markle has already rubbed quite a few people the wrong way with her disregard for Royal rules and protocols. When asked whether Meghan will have to “tone down” her beliefs as a royal, Mr Burrell replied: “Yes, of course. What comes with maturity is a set of beliefs and they don’t always sit well with the Royal Family.”But it looks like that is something Meghan Markle won’t be doing. As the Duchess of Sussex got her independence when the couple Sussex split from the Royal household. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle moved to Frogmore Cottage to raise baby Archie away from the Palace. Meghan Markle already seems to be carving her own path as a Royal.
