Ariana Grande Heads to ‘Fortnite’ for ‘Rift Tour’ Virtual Event

The Rift Tour, featuring Ariana Grande, is coming to Fortnite next weekend.

On Sunday (Aug. 1), it was announced that Grande will be the latest superstar to perform within the Fortnite realm, headlining an in-game event — or a “musical journey into magical new realities” — that’s scheduled for Aug. 6-8.

“Ariana & the Rift Tour” will be available on the online game for five time slots over the weekend, accommodating fans around the world: Friday, Aug. 6 at 6 p.m. ET; Saturday, Aug. 7 at 2 p.m. ET; and Sunday, Aug. 8 at 12 a.m. ET, 10 a.m. ET., and 6 p.m. ET.

The Rift Tour will feature experiences that pair Grande’s music with elements from Fortnite.

As an added bonus, players can find Grande outfit options — from a “cosmic” look to her Piggy Smallz — in the Fornite Item Shop beginning on Aug. 4.

“Working with Epic and the Fortnite team to bring my music to life inside the game has been so fun and such an honor,” the singer said in a statement. “I can’t wait to join my fans and see all of your reactions to such an unforgettable, magical journey to new realities.”

“Fortnite is a place for the imagination and the impossible,” added Phil Rampulla, head of brand at Epic Games. “With the Rift Tour, we’re bringing a musical journey to life that players can experience, feel, and join alongside their friends. We’re so grateful to have an iconic superstar like Ariana Grande and her team join us for a musical experience at metaverse scale, and for players and fans alike to experience the Rift Tour!”

Fortnite is free to download, and it’s available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Android, PC and Mac. It’s recommended to join in an hour before show time.

Roddy Ricch’s ‘Night’ Rises to No. 1 on Rhythmic Airplay Chart

Roddy Ricch banks a fifth No. 1 on the radio chart and continues his winning streak at the Rhythmic format, for which he was the top artist of 2020.

Roddy Ricch’s ‘Night’ Rises to No. 1 on Rhythmic Airplay Chart

Roddy Ricch banks a fifth No. 1 on Billboard’s Rhythmic Airplay chart as “Late at Night” surges from No. 5 to lead the list dated July 31. The single advances with a 17% burst in plays in the week ending July 25 to become the most-played song of the week on monitored U.S. rhythmic stations, according to MRC Data.

With the new champ, here’s a rundown of the rapper’s five leaders:

Song Title, Artist (if other than Roddy Ricch), Weeks at No. 1, Date Reached No. 1
“Ballin,” with Mustard, two, Dec. 21, 2019
“The Box,” six, Feb. 22, 2020
“High Fashion,” featuring Mustard, one, July 13, 2020
“Rockstar,” DaBaby featuring Roddy Ricch, nine, July 4, 2020
“Late at Night,” one (to date), July 31, 2021

As it reaches No. 1, “Night” adds to Roddy Ricch’s winning streak on rhythmic radio. The single is the rapper’s first solo release since he wrapped the album cycle for Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial, which was released in December 2019. Anchored by singles such as “The Box” and “High Fashion,” the project catapulted the rapper to major favor with rhythmic radio listeners and programmers, and he ended 2020 as the Rhythmic Airplay chart’s No. 1 artist of the year.

Beyond its Rhythmic coronation, “Night” cracks the top 10 of R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay through a 11-6 move. There, the song climbs to 14.1 million in audience in the week ending July 22, an 18% improvement from the prior week, and the largest weekly percentage gain among the chart’s 50 titles. Thanks to the five-spot jump, Roddy Ricch collects his sixth R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay top 10, following “Ballin,” “The Box,” “High Fashion,” “Rockstar” and a featured turn on Pop Smoke’s “The Woo,” (also featuring 50 Cent), which peaked at No. 4 last October.

The song also repeats at its No. 2 rank (its best yet) on Rap Airplay, though it adds 19% in audience in the latest tracking week. With growing support from its R&B/hip-hop airplay base, the track pushes 35-32 in its fourth week on the all-genre Radio Songs chart, as it picks up 19% in audience to 24.6 million.
