Thursday NEWS RUSH Featuring Viral Imagine Cover.
It’s CULTED bringing you your Thursday NEWS RUSH.
First up, Nike has beaten its sales estimates during the coronavirus pandemic thanks to a rise in online shoppers. The brand’s overall digital sales rose by 36% in the 3rd quarter leading up to 29 February.
Next up, John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ has hit a new high on the rock chart following the viral cover which is circulating the internet. This comes after a number of famous faces, including Natalie Portman and Cara Delevigne, covered the track in an attempt to raise spirits during the coronavirus pandemic. The track re-entered Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs chart at number 15.
Finally, more than 5,500 artists and students have signed a petition blasting London’s Royal College of Art for its plan to hold this year’s degree show as an online-exhibition. Graduating students are asking the college to suspend its programs and delay the exhibition until they can safely return to college.
That’s all for Thursday’s NEWS RUSH. Stay tuned for more news later today.
It’s Sam with CULTED. Wishing you a safe and happy Thursday.
