Welcome to Billboard's weekly recap! Whether it's a newly released song or video, a viral moment, or a big announcement, Billboard will have a round-up of the happenings across the music industry at the end of every week.
It almost felt like a K-pop takeover this week, as BTS, SuperM and Tomorrow x Together all had big news to announce, from new fashion campaigns to new albums. But there were plenty of other exciting things happening in pop, hip-hop and Latin as well, like Mariah Carey announcing new Christmas tour dates.
Unfortunately, this week was also ridden with another tragic loss, as superproducer Busbee lost his battle to cancer on Sunday (Sept. 29). Artists of all genres delivered heartfelt tributes, ultimately showing that his legacy will live on through all of the singers he touched.
Take a look at all of the biggest things that happened in music in this week’s recap below.
Post Malone became a meme
The hip-hop star’s Detroit crowd got extra rowdy on Sunday night (Sept. 29), with one of the female fans on the floor flashing Post as he walked on the stage runway. Naturally, his jaw dropped in response -- and luckily, someone caught it on camera. Within hours, fans turned Post’s shocked face into quite the hilarious meme, including jokes about 2nd graders' reactions to wiggly pencils and everyone’s response to cute dogs.
Mariah Carey announced holiday tour dates
The superstar continued to spread holiday cheer one week after announcing a re-release of her hit holiday album, Merry Christmas, in honor of its 25th anniversary. On Monday (Sept. 30), Carey revealed five holiday shows that will take place on the East Coast in December, just after she plays five Christmas shows in Las Vegas.
