Upcoming Artist BESTÒR Hits Over One Million Streams on Spotify

Published

on

Brandon Bester a.k.a BESTÒR

The coronavirus pandemic has been hard on him and his fellow artists but that hasn’t stopped him from making music. In fact, this seems to have been his most successful year so far.

Popularly known as BESTÒR, Brandon Bester was born in Oceanside California but later spent his youth in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Ashburn, Virginia. 

Brandon claims that he had always been enthusiastic about music since he was a young boy.

At age 11, he reminisces the day he wrote a song called PH U KNO with his childhood friend Shane Healey. His latest projects include Quarantine, Blue and Chasing The Sun among others.

In what seems to be a reflective post, Bester recently shared three slides on Instagram, showing the contrast between where his music was and where it is now. 

Back in 2018, the young upcoming artist started with just five thousand streams, 941 fans and 44 countries. He then moved up last year to over 100,000 streams, 90,000 listeners and had more than 75 countries vibing to his tunes.

Now, BESTÒR boasts of over 1.1 million streams on Spotify, 700,000 listeners and over 90 countries currently have his jams on their playlists.

In his first interview (with Trust The Grind podcast), BESTÒR said that he had always wanted to go solo after years of being part of bands. Being an independent artist however is not easy especially when it comes to marketing.  

 The singer told Steve and Alec that he owes his success so far, to a guy he met online. BESTÒR claims that he has always been very supportive, especially when it comes to publicizing his tracks.

The artist says that he started playing the piano, drums and guitar when he was very young. The interesting part is that he learnt all of them by ear. Talk about natural talent!

Bester says his aim is to make music relatable to his fans and finding his sound in the process. His career seems to be taking shape and we sure wish him the best in his career.

Conor McGregor loses against Dustin Poirier!

The highly anticipated match between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier finally took place at UFC 257 at Fight Island in Abu Dhabi.

McGregor, a former two division champion, was up against his old rival, but sadly he lost again to Conor.

The two had their first round at UFC 178 over six years ago, where McGregor defeated Poirier. Since their first round, McGregor went on to become the biggest star in the UFC.

Poirier proved that to be true in the rematch on Fight Island when he survived early blitzes from McGregor to score a shocking upset victory by second-round knockout.

McGregor came out fast, flashing his trademark speed and power, and even dipping back into the same shoulder strikes that led to the knockout of Donald Cerrone in his January 2020 return to the Octagon.

Through it all, Poirier remained steady, working over McGregor with leg kicks, eventually taking the base of the Irish superstar before blitzing him with punches, dropping him to the canvas and scoring the knockout at the 2:32 mark.

The Irish professional mixed martial artist and boxer became the first fighter to hold world titles simultaneously in two divisions.

Poirier, on the other hand, claimed the UFC interim lightweight title. He went on to win matches against Eddie Alvarez, Max Holloway, Dan Hooker, and Justin Gaethje.

Congratulations Dustin Poirer on his win!

Irish boxer Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier will go head to head today, seven years since the duo last fought.

The world anticipated the historic UFC 257 Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier rematch, and now it is here. The duo fought last in 2014, and over the years they have changed.

For instance, Poirier won a couple of fights against boxers like Justin Gaethje, Max Holloway and Eddie Alvarez. Apart from getting some titles, McGregor fought in 2017 with Floyd Mayweather, a match he lost.

There are other anticipated fights like Michael Chandler against Dan Hooker. Michael is after the title because he wants to add it to his wins while for Hooker, this could be a chance to redeem himself after losing to Poirier last year.

In the women’s battle, Amanda Ribas will be taking down Marina Rodriguez. Joanne Calderwood and Jessica Eye will compete for the Women’s Flyweight title while Makhmud Muradov will battle against Andrew Sanchez for the middleweight championship.

Like boxer Khabib Nurmagomedov, many fans are predicting that McGregor will take the win, but we can not be so sure as Poirier has been working and preparing hard for the fight. Besides, Conor has not fought for the last one year. It sure will be contested.

McGregor is reported to earn more than twenty million dollars from the Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier fight.

American rapper Soulja Boy was recently sued over sexual assault and battery allegations by his former personal assistant. The woman filed as ‘Jane Doe’ also claimed that Soulja Boy created a hostile environment and refused to pay her. She claims that apart from raping her on several occasions, the rapper also held her hostage for three days.
