Lil Uzi Vert: New Album Review

Brianna Doctor     

     For over a year now, Lil Uzi Vert fans have been waiting for the popular artist to drop his much anticipated album. Finally, on Fri. March 6, Uzi Vert released Eternal Atake

     With sixteen new songs and two previously released songs, “Futsal Shuffle 2020” and “That Way,” Eternal Atake runs a little over one hour total. 

     The album has only one feature, and the only artist featured on the album is Syd on the song “Urgency.” 

     Lil Uzi Vert has taken over the charts as sixteen out of his eighteen songs are in the first twenty out of fifty top hits on Apple Music. As for Spotify, fourteen of his songs are in the first twenty out of two hundred hits.

     Although Eternal Atake has taken over music apps globally, there was mixed reviews about the album. Many people loved the long awaited album, while others felt the album was not the best. 

     Senior Jay Singh was very excited to listen to Lil Uzi Vert’s new album, but although he ended up liking the album, he was a little bit disappointed.

     “I really liked the album, but it definitely was not his best album. I think the album was really overhyped, but I still thoroughly enjoyed his album,” Singh said. 

     Some people did like the album, and senior Andrew Radigan believes the music was good.

     “I really enjoyed listening to his album, and I really liked it. The music was great, and I liked a lot of the songs.

     I personally loved the album. I thought it was very well made, and it definitely did not disappoint. It was different than his other albums, and I liked how he changed his style up.

     Even though he decided to try out some new stuff, and change it up, parts of his album were still like his previous albums. 

     I really like his song “P2” which is a sequel to “XO TOUR Llif3” on his second album Luv Is Rage 2. The beat is almost the exact same as “XO TOUR Llif3,” but the lyrics were obviously changed. 

     Next on the list of my favorites are “Homecoming” and “Prices.” Both songs have a good beat, and I also like “Lo Mein.” 

     Lil Uzi Vert released a tweet on Mon. March 9, and he told his followers that he would be releasing Eternal Atake (Deluxe) this weekend. 

     I would definitely recommend listening to his new album, and then listening to his Deluxe album when he releases it this weekend.

What now for the Disney Trip?

  Amanda Ostrowski

 Stow Munroe Falls High School band trip to Disney was postponed. I feel that the decision made was the right decision to make. 

     There are alot of kids in the band and the government and Disney does not want us to get the virus or give the virus to other people. Especially because there are a lot of old people down there. 

     I am glad they decided to postpone the trip and not just cancel it completely because going to Disney was the only reason I joined the band.

     They also probably postponed the trip instead of canceling because the band can only go once every four years and they do not wanna make students and parents unhappy. 

     There are many band kids that are very upset still by this but I think people are just trying to stop the spreading and trying to protect the students and others safety. 

     Plus even if the school decided to send us to Disney it is closing anyways so we would not be able to go. 

     Even though I feel it was the right decision it is sad because of all the work band kids worked. We did extra practices and took time away from concert season to work on the music Disney gave us. 

     The band directors though really have worked hard to get this trip together and it is sad that all of their work will be postponed to a later time. I am sure they have given up a lot of time to make sure everything was set and to make sure all of the kids would have a great safe time. 

     I hope the school and the band and the local government can work all of this out and we all still be able to go to Disney World. 

     As a senior I hope for myself and my classmates that we will go to Disney soon.

 

How This Virus Has Taken Over

Ashley Hutchinson  

     As most of the world knows, Coronavirus (also referred to as COVID-19), is a disease that rapidly broke out at the end of 2019. While many predicted the spreading of this disease would soon come to a stop, it is actually spreading quickly and dangerously. 

     Fear and anxiety about contracting COVIS-19 has led to a major social panic. Many people live in fear that they will get the disease and avoid anyone who seems susceptible to having it. 

     In fact, a majority of the country is on self-quarantine to prevent the disease from spreading. 

     Specifically, Ohio has taken extreme measures of precaution. Schools are closed, events are canceled, and stores are rapidly running out of essential household items.

     Currently, there are 67 cases of the Coronavirus across Ohio, with more expected to come. Polls for the primary elections are even being postponed. 

     While the health of many citizens is at risk, COVID-19 also has an impact on the economy.

     The Ohio governor, Mike DeWine, has declared that all restaurants but close their dining to the public and only allow carry-out orders. 

     This can and will cause many locally owned businesses to shut down because of the lack of revenue. 

     Additionally, many people are being laid off from their jobs, with businesses and schools closing. This causes many families to lose a majority of their income, which will therefore cause the economy to fall into an even deeper recession. 

     Thankfully, schools are trying to minimize the impact of the virus as much as possible. Students are to be kept busy with online academic assignments from all of their teachers. 

     Individual schools are also making a difference by trying to provide for families as much as possible. Children who need food can receive a school lunch every day, regardless of age or family income.

     Also, schools are doing their best to provide some students with adequate technology, such as iPads or laptops. Technology is important because it allows them to stay connected with schoolwork and classmates. 

     Overall, the Coronavirus is having a major impact on the United States, with information changing every day. The best thing for people to do is to wash hands, avoid people as much as possible, and just try to stay healthy.
