Hailee Steinfeld Returns to Music With 'Coast' feat. Anderson .Paak - Listen & Read the Lyrics!

Hailee Steinfeld is returning to music!

The 25-year-old Hawkeye actress is back with a brand new single on Friday (July 29), called “Coast,” and it features Anderson .Paak.

“I am so happy to finally be able to share ‘Coast’ with the world. This song is deeply personal to me and was influenced by my California roots and the music I grew up listening to with my family,” she told Rolling Stone.

“The only artist I envisioned collaborating with on this track was my friend, Anderson .Paak. Knowing he loved the song enough to lend his genius to it is absolutely surreal, and I am forever grateful to have his support. This is only the beginning and I can’t wait to share the rest of what’s to come with you all soon.”

Kodi Smit-McPhee Flies Thigh High at Met Gala After Parties

Kodi Smit-McPhee suits up for the Instagram Met Gala after-party held at the James B. Duke House on Monday (May 2) in New York City.

The 25-year-old Oscar nominee wore a custom Bottega Veneta look including thigh-high woven-leather boots.

“We really wanted to swing for the fences with the after-party footwear,” Kodi told Vogue. “The craftsmanship is insane: They’re inspired by combat military boots and fisherman boots. The look is totally business up top, and then a party down below.”

In keeping with the MET Gala’s gilded glamour theme, attendees gathered inside the Gilded Age mansion with DJs @cocoandbreezy and Anderson Paak, who took the stage before the evening’s special guest performer. Past midnight, SZA performed for Instagram’s creators and community beneath the grand hall’s chandeliers.

Also in attendance was Sabrina Carpenter and Awkwafina.

Mary J. Blige just released her new album Good Morning Gorgeous and she was joined by lots of celebs to celebrate the drop!

The 51-year-old entertainer, who is performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show this weekend, hosted the part at The Classic Cat on Thursday night (February 10) in West Hollywood, Calif.

Guests included Bruno Mars, Anderson Paak, Nas, Taraji P. Henson, DJ D-Nice, Ella Mai, Ne-Yo, and more. The event was sponsored by Sun Goddess Wines, Pepsi, 300 Entertainment and Amazon R&B Rotation.

While explaining the title of the album’s title track, Mary told ET, “I couldn’t give up on myself. I had to say something that was really powerful, that I didn’t even believe, to say it to myself in the morning because who looks good in the morning?”

Mary added that she was in a dark place when she began working on the album. “It was not a good place. It was created and confessed to get me out of a dark situation, and I learned confessing positive things begins to manifest,” she said.

Earlier in the day, Mary was at a press conference for the halftime show with two of her fellow performers!
