British YouTuber Jack ‘JaackMaate’ Dean has announced he will be following Addison Rae and Joe Rogan with an exclusive Spotify podcast deal.

Jack’s podcast “Happy Hour,” began almost two years ago and is hosted by Jack alongside Stevie White. Happy Hour has had several high-profile guests in the past including KSI, Miniminter, Joe Weller, Vikkstar123, and even comedian Ricky Gervais.

Jack tweeted the news saying: “Can’t quite believe that a silly little podcast I do with my mate and is edited by my girlfriend, has just been signed by Spotify!

“This is one of my greatest achievements ever, and none of it would have been possible without you guys supporting the show. Thank you, immensely.”

Jack also clarified that for fans of the show’s YouTube channel, five clips will still be released on the platform each week.

Jack and Stevie spoke about their deal with Spotify in more detail on the podcast’s YouTube channel where they revealed that within the first 6 months of doing the podcast, they cut a financial loss. Jack said that the deal was life-changing on a personal level for him.

He said: “Spotify has, let’s put it out there, offered me a lot of money for this show, life-changing amounts of money that no one out there watching would turn down.”

The YouTuber continued: “I’m a 27-year-old man that has worked my ass off on YouTube for 12 years. I have a little bit of savings, but it’s not crazy I want to move out of my rented place and buy a house with my partner Fiona and settle down and have a lovely time.”

Popular podcaster and YouTuber True Geordie congratulated Jack, as did Football YouTuber Spencer Owen.

In July it was announced that TikTok star Addison ‘Rae’ Easterling and her mom Sheri ‘Nicole’ Easterling signed with Spotify’s Parcast to make Mama Knows Best, a brand new podcast about the viral personality’s home life.

Joe Rogan’s immensely popular JRE podcast moved exclusively to Spotify this month in a multi-year deal with the platform.


Charli D’Amelio and Bebe Rexha’s ASMR is the best thing you’ll hear today

TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio has hopped on the ASMR trend, and she brought singer Bebe Rexha along with her for a hilarious relaxation session — complete with a few insights into both stars’ lives.

Charli D’Amelio may be known for her catchy choreography, but it looks like the TikTok celebrity is more than just a dancer. Now, she’s delving into the world of ASMR, and brought Bebe Rexha along for the ride.

Their ASMR collaboration, uploaded to YouTube on October 23, came just two weeks after Charli’s appearance in Rexha’s ‘Baby I’m Jealous’ music video with Doja Cat, as well as a few other key influencers like Nikita Dragun and Avani Gregg.

It looks like the group has gotten close in the days that followed, with Bebe and Charli settling down for snacks in front of a high-sensitivity ASMR mic to talk about their careers and favorite foods.

Charli D’Amelio, Nikita Dragun and Avani Gregg appeared in a music video with Doja Cat and Bebe Rexha earlier this month.

Although plenty of hilariousness ensued, the two dropped quite a few facts for their fans, with Bebe Rexha admitting that she gets anxiety when flying on airplanes.

That’s not all; Charli was also asked about the “funnest moment” in her career, which she whittled down to having dinner with her friends or just hanging out with other TikTokers, rather than attending big events as an A-list celeb.

“I realize like, this is crazy!” she said. “It’s those little moments where it just like, clicks for a second, and I’m like, ‘Woah, that’s kind of insane.’ Those are the best.”

Although Charli’s ASMR series is still in its early stages, Bebe Rexha suggested they go full-on Mukbang for future episodes — a style of video where influencers sit down with a huge spread of food and chow down in front of the camera.

It seems that this style of video is rather popular in some online circles, although it still remains to be seen if Charli’s fanbase is up for that kind of content. Nevertheless, her pilot ASMR experience was certainly a fun ride, and we can’t wait to see what’s next for the star in her new journey into the world of relaxation.
