Popular Fortnite streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has partnered with EDM label ‘Astralwerks’ to create his very first music album – and he’s collaborated with some of the genre’s biggest names to do so.

Ninja’s compilation album, appropriately dubbed ‘Ninjawerks’ (after the Astralwerks label), features such EDM greats as 3LAU, Alesso, and Tycho in a series of gaming-themed tunes.


Although the album isn’t set to drop until Friday, December 14, three singles are already available to stream online – including Alesso’s ‘Tilted Towers’ (likely named after the location of Fortnite fame), ‘Jetty’ by Tycho, and 3LAU’s ‘Game Time.’

The album, initially announced by Ninja during TwitchCon 2018 in October, is now available for pre-order, and stands as Astralwerk’s very first collaboration with a gaming personality.



Ninja has stated that he hopes for the album to become the “soundtrack of gaming,” and feels that it marks a big step in bridging the gaming and music industries.

“I’m stoked about this project, first because I truly love the music, but also because I think this is another big step towards bridging the gap between music artists and gamers,” Blevins stated in an interview with “Our worlds keep getting more and more connected, and this feels like the next step — hopefully, this can become the soundtrack to gaming.”


The Fortnite star will celebrate the album’s release in a party on Sunday, December 2, at Hollywood’s Capitol Records Lot. 

The album will be available in both digital and vinyl formats and will feature original artwork, as well as an entire line of additional merchandise.


Tana Mongeau responds to Teala Dunn kissing her ex Bella Thorne

Tana Mongeau has responded to a video of her ex-girlfriend Bella Thorne who was filmed kissing another influencer in a TikTok that’s had millions of views.

Bella Thorne was at Clubhouse BH this week, the creator collective founded by Daisy Keech. The “Shake it Up” actress collaborated with influencer Teala Dunn in TikTok videos.


But in one video she was seen kissing her directly on the lips. The clip has already racked up more than 8 million views and 1.5 million likes.

It’s unsurprising that the pair are hanging out, as Teala and Bella have known each other for several years after both appearing on Shake It Up together. Bella makes regular appearances in influencers’ social media posts and even music videos.

Teala recently joined Clubhouse BH and has come under fire in recent weeks for repeatedly posting TikToks that use the same joke, over and over. Her video with Bella Thorne even plays into the same joke where she begins the video saying: “Fun fact, actually really really sad fact.”

Bella is also the ex-girlfriend of popular YouTuber Tana Mongeau. They dated for over a year but broke up in February 2019, and have thrown shade at each other over social media since.

Tana responded to the kiss by duetting the TikTok from her own account, adding: “People really pretend to be my friend,” and then commented “It’s a joke…kinda? Like?”

TikTokers and other influencers weighed in with their opinions too. Harry Jowsey commented: “What happened last time someone hung out with your ex?” referring to drama between the two and Francesca Farago in September.

Francesca and Tana were rumored to be dating, but they got into a fight after Tana posted a video with Harry, Francesca’s ex-boyfriend.

Another user got over 10,000 likes on one comment under Tana’s TikTok that said: “Teala hasn’t even done anything to me, yet she triggers me so much and idek why.”


Teala herself commented: “Girl what???” Despite claiming her response is a joke. But the pair appeared to have resolved any issues that may have come up after Teala tweeted: “Ummm I freaking love @tanamongeau everything’s fine y’all there’s no drama,” and Tana responded with love heart emojis.

Whether a romance is blossoming between Teala and Bella is yet to be determined.
