Brockhampton to Launch Their Own Beats 1 Radio Show
Brockhampton are branching out. Today (July 5), the group's leader, Kevin Abstract, used his Twitter account to announce Things We Lost in the Fire Radio, group's forthcoming show coming to Beats 1 Radio. The title appears to be a reference to the 2007 Halle Berry-starring drama, Things We Lost in the Fire.
For the announcement, Abstract posted two tweets. One included a poster for the new show and a message indicating he and the clique would be dropping a ton of new music in the coming months. "new music all summer." Abstract wrote in his tweet.
The poster for their new Beats 1 show includes two parts. On the top of the poster, there's an image of one chair overlooking a big jungle on a mountain. Written on the image are the words, "Things we lost." The second part of the poster is a close-up image of Brockhampton member Matt Champion looking intently into his phone screen. The words written across this photo read, "in the fire radio."
In a second bit of promo for the new show, Abstract tweeted out a video of himself and Bearface sitting on swings as parts of Dave Chappelle's conversation on The Oprah Winfrey Show soundtrack the clip.
"The worst thing to call somebody is crazy," Chappelle says as Bearface and Abstract swing back and forth. "It's dismissive. 'I don't understand this person, so they're crazy.' They're not crazy. These people are strong people. Maybe the environment is a little sick."
This news comes just a bit over a month after Brockhampton parted ways with former member Ameer Vann amid sexual misconduct allegations against the rapper. Last month, the group debuted their new song, "Tonya," on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
