Adstoppi Blog | Get to know Halle Bailey, new Little Mermaid

Published by:


We live in a time where almost every new musical prodigy has formed an identity on YouTube long before they break through to mainstream Hollywood. Halle Bailey, the new face of Disney’s Little Mermaid, is a perfect example.

Disney announced on Wednesday that Bailey, currently 19-years-old, would play Princess Ariel in the company’s upcoming live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid. She began making a name for herself as an actress on ABC’s Grownish, a spinoff of its popular series, Blackish that premiered in 2018, but she developed an even bigger fanbase far before that on YouTube. Halle, alongside her older sister Chloe, have amassed more than one million subscribers on YouTube thanks to their astonishing covers of songs from artists like Rihanna, Alicia Keys, and Beyoncé since launching the channel in 2006.

Their covers became so popular that they attracted the attention of Beyoncé herself. She signed both women to her label after discovering their videos, and they’re often described as Queen Bey’s prodigies. There’s an entire catalogue of videos on YouTube showcasing Halle’s talents. For Disney aficionados, these videos provide a perfect way of getting to know Ariel before the movie comes out.

A rarer video of Halle on YouTube that stars just her. The rendition of Nat King Cole’s classic soul track is truly stunning.

There are plenty more videos of Halle and Chloe singing on YouTube, including videos of them performing the national anthem at award shows and original music videos. While the entire world will be introduced to Halle on the big screen in just a couple of years time, her career on YouTube means people can fall in love with her talents now.

The Little Mermaid, which is being directed by Rob Marshall, does not have a release date yet.

Boston Dynamics’ lifelike robots have been delighting and terrifying the internet in equal measure for years, but the company has a much bigger milestone ahead: its first ever commercial product — a quadrupedal robot named Spot — is nearly ready to go on sale. Spot is currently being tested in a number of “proof-of-concept” environments, Boston Dynamics’ CEO Marc Raibert told The Verge, including package delivery and surveying work. And although there’s no firm launch date for the commercial version of Spot, it should be available within months, said Raibert, and certainly before the end of the year. “We’re just doing some final tweaks to the design,” said the CEO. “We’ve been testing them relentlessly.” Raibert was showing off the robots at Amazon’s Re:MARS...

Foxconn founder Terry Gou has said that Apple should move its manufacturing out of China, Bloomberg reports. “I am urging Apple to move to Taiwan,” Gou said in response to a question about whether Apple will move production away from China. “I think it is very possible.” Foxconn is one of Apple’s key manufacturing partners, producing many of the company’s iPhones in Zhengzhou, China. The comments came on the same day that Gou confirmed he will be stepping down from his role as Foxconn chairman, effective July 1st. Speculation is mounting that Apple will move some of its manufacturing out of China in the wake of the US-China trade war. At the end of the month, the Trump administration is due to impose a 25 percent tariff on phones, laptops, and tablets manufactured in China,...

WWE has one of the most popular YouTube channels in the world and has become a social media force, and today (as reported by Variety) the company officially joined TikTok. There's a WWE TikTok channel, sure, but more important to wrestling fans and meme creators is that WWE's arrival brings with it a slew of licensed entrance music for some of the company's most recognizable performers past and present. You can now add "Stone Cold" Steve Austin's theme music to your TikTok uploads. Same for The Undertaker, John Cena, or Becky Lynch. And yes, The Rock's music is available as well. Music for over 30 superstars can now be included in TikTok videos globally. The songs are not yet available for use in Instagram stories, so this is a decent get for TikTok.

On Disney+'s first day, its initial 10 million subscribers were hit with a series of outages. The company says this was because of high demand and the way engineers "architected the app." Ahead of the launch, Disney executives thought they would be ok. Michael Paull, head of Disney Streaming Services, told The Verge in August that years of handling big streams (like Game of Thrones premieres and finales) prepared the team for a launch of this size. It didn't. New subscribers couldn't log in to the app; if they managed to get in, streaming was nearly impossible. People thought it might be issues with Amazon or third-party platforms carrying the app, but Kevin Mayer, head of Disney's direct to consumer division, denied those rumors. "It had we to do with the way we architected the app,"...

Huawei has announced three new devices, the Nova 5, Nova 5 Pro, and Nova 5i, alongside a brand new 7nm Kirin 810 chipset, reports GizmoChina. The launch comes as Huawei continues to face an uncertain future outside of China after Google suspended its Android license last month, meaning that it’s unclear how long these phones will continue to receive Android updates. It’s also uncertain if and for how long these phones would have access to the Google Play Store if they’re released outside of China. The new Kirin 810 chipset can be found in the Nova 5, while the more expensive Nova 5 Pro has the flagship Kirin 980 processor found in Huawei’s P30 Pro and Mate 20. The new Kirin 810 chipset has eight cores like the Kirin 980, but two of the 980’s high-performance cores have been...

Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are widely using facial recognition tools on state driver’s license databases around the country, according to newly released documents. In documents from multiple states released today, Georgetown Law reveals how officials regularly turn to local DMVs for facial recognition searches. The database searches scan millions of license photos, regardless of whether any individual in the database has been accused of a crime. In Utah, between 2015 and 2017, federal and local officials queried a license database frequently, often several times a day, according to a log of searches. ICE and the FBI regularly searched the data. The Washington Post first reported on the documents. As the Post notes, the searches were used...

Disney is making a number of changes to its upcoming theatrical release dates in order to accommodate delayed films like Black Widow and Mulan.
