Get To Know bittymacbeth: 6 Questions And A Debut Album

Some things you only dream of, some things you set out to do. Some things you remember for the rest of your life, when that one thing came true. The last day of May will be such a case for local singer-songwriter bittymacbeth, as her debut album “Beauty For Ashes” was launched to a sold-out crowd at the Esplanade Recital Studio.

Can Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” Conquer Summer 2016?

“I’ve made my decision, to test my limits” After a painfully-extended promotional run, pop’ music’s four-octave fave Ariana Grande has finally released her third full-length album, “Dangerous Woman”. The album is preceded by the singles “Dangerous Woman” and “Into You”, along with many other bops that we’ll get to later. The wait for #AG3 could have been a lot shorter. After scrapping 2015’s “Focus” over online criticism about it sounding too similar to her 2014 Iggy Azalea collab “Problem”, Ariana took a few months off to realign her chakras, lick some donuts, and post more cryptic tweets, Snapchats, and Instagrams as punishment for our audacity…

Zayn’s “Mind Of Mine” Might Suffer From One-Track Mindedness

It’s been little more than a year since Zayn Malik (now known mononymously as Zayn – like Madonna or Jesus) announced his exit from One Direction while they were still midway through their world tour – a move that broke the hearts of millions of fans. (They’ll recover.) Dropping his first solo song with as much notice as his departure from the band, “PILLOWTALK” sheds the light, teenager-friendly tone of One Direction and features a much edgier, sensual side of Zayn. As the lead single, it’s a good indication of the songs that follow on his debut LP “Mind Of Mine”…

Chill Vibes: Kicking It Back With The 1975

After pulling a Houdini on us and disappearing from the social media scene, The 1975 is back with their second album. Sure the album title is a mouthful, but “I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It” is an apt description of this beautiful masterpiece. 3 years after their debut self-titled album, this record proves that the wait was definitely worth it. As someone who prioritises Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift on my playlists, The 1975 isn’t at once an obvious choice in my music library. 10 minutes in to the album, however, and…

Troye Sivan Announces “Blue Neighbourhood”, Proves He’s Been Busier Than We Thought

We’re gonna assume everyone reading this is a fan of Troye Sivan at this point, so let’s just jump straight into the big news: Troye has just confirmed his first full-length album titled “Blue Neighbourhood“! Following his explosive entry into the music industry with debut EP “TRXYE“, the YouTube star has spent much of late-2014 and 2015 in the studio working on “his music”. It was a surprise, therefore, when Troye released another EP (not a full album) earlier this year. I mean, “WILD” is a great piece of work, but it’s a little underwhelming when you emerge from nearly a year of writing sessions…

Directioners VS Beliebers: The Battle For The 13th

If you were creeping on Twitter last Wednesday, you might have noticed a peculiar date among the top trending hashtags. #Nov13 is just blowing up the whole Twittersphere. No, it’s not going to be the end of the world and no, Destiny’s Child are not scheduled for another mini reunion performance (but we can dream, can’t we). Well, it seems that 13 November 2015 is slated for a couple of the biggest album drops of the year. That’s right, kids. A couple. As in, more than one album. The biggest boyband on the planet, One Direction, will be releasing their album…

Is A New P!nk Album Coming Soon?

Here’s the short answer: We’d like to believe so, yes. Pop stars (and their elaborate marketing teams) usually set out to make some waves before new music is announced, and Pink has made a few visits to the headlines recently. To make our case, here’s why we’re expecting a new release from the pop-rock diva soon: 1) She’s penned The Ellen Show’s new theme song “Let’s have a little fun… today!” That familiar jingle has been around for about as long as anyone can remember, but Pink has stepped up to write and perform the new song, titled “Today’s The Day“. The new theme…
