After garnering tens of millions of streams across various platforms, Landon Cube is finally unveiling his debut studio project. For his first multi-track offering, the Maryland-reared singer-songwriter is serving up six new tracks as part of the Orange EP. Notably, Cube’s new EP contains additional appearances from Lil Gnar (“Can U Feel Your Face”) and Lil Skies (“17”). In recent months, Landon Cube supported and promoted his new project by releasing Orange cuts “Nuisance” and “Makeup” as singles, both of which saw near-instant success upon their arrival. Landon Cube has received a large portion of his exposure and recognition through past work as a featured guest on hit-records from his “17” collaborator Lil Skies, who enlisted the 21-year-old for his Shelby standout “Nowadays, Pt. 2” and the immensely-popular Life of a Dark Rose single “Red Roses.”
“Me and Landon, I don’t really know how to explain it. Our vibe and our energy, we’re both just really relaxed,” Lil Skies previously explained to Billboard when asked about his chemistry with Landon Cube. “We’re both really just chill people. This is our vibe. When it comes to the music, we both got the ear for this shit. I feel like everybody is making songs, but people are doing this shit so quick … I feel like with us, we really wanna make hit, solid songs. Billboard shit. That’s how we look at it. Every song has to be a hit.”

As the founder of her own beauty brand, Kylie Jenner likely has access to tons of makeup. And, according to a recent Instagram post, one of the newest products on her radar is lipstick that’s currently facing tons of backlash online.
On Thursday, Jenner shared a now-deleted video on her Instagram story in which she’s seen opening a package from Jaclyn Cosmetics, a new beauty brand created by YouTuber Jaclyn Hill. The brand announced its first line of 20 nude lipsticks in May, and quickly received backlash from people who said the products arrived broken and caused lip irritation.
But, despite the controversy, Jenner still said she “can’t wait to try” the lipsticks, which were packaged in a sparkling box that she described as “magical.”
Less than 30 minutes after posting the video, Jenner deleted it from her Instagram story. Despite her efforts, the video quickly began to circulate online.
HereForTheTea2, a YouTube drama account, uploaded the clip to its Instagram page.
Just one day prior to Jenner’s post, Hill shared an apology video on YouTube called “My Lipsticks.” Throughout the video, Hill addressed some of the concerns raised about her products, and promised that her lipsticks are not “expired, moldy, or hazardous.”
She also apologized to people who said they purchased broken lipsticks from Jaclyn Cosmetics that gave them swollen lips and bumps.
“I am so, so sorry that any of you are experiencing anything less than absolute perfection from my first launch,” Hill said in her video. “I will do whatever it takes to make it up for you. I will send you a brand new lipstick. I will pay for it myself. I will give you a full refund.”
“I take full responsibility,” Hill continued. “This is my brand, with my name on it, and my team that I’ve created. And I am so sorry that you received something that is not exactly how I’ve described it to you.”
In a statement previously sent to INSIDER, representatives for Jaclyn Cosmetics said the brand was “distressed to learn that a small percentage” of customers received products “with quality issues related to the texture and the look-and-feel of the lipsticks.”
“We are deeply committed to making this right and ask that any customer experiencing issues with the quality of their product reach out to us directly for a refund.”
Representatives for Kylie Jenner did not immediately reply to INSIDER’s request for comment. Representatives for Jaclyn Cosmetics declined to comment.
