The girls also recently unveiled the slightly terrifying, goth inspired single artwork for ‘Salute’ so let’s hope we get a video for that soon as well.
Are The ‘Mix the hardest working ladies in pop? We reckon so!
Lily Allen is no stranger to controversy and may be about to ruffle some feathers with the latest release from her forthcoming album.
The ‘Air Balloon’ singer delivers some cutting put downs about the music industry and even namechecks some of her pop contemporaries on the title track from ‘Sheezus’ including Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Katy Perry and newcomer Lorde. In fact the song – and its accompanying trippy video – borrows a lot from Lorde with its heavy bass and catchy vocal hooks but the sound suits Lily and her sharp tongue perfectly. Bring on the album!
India, Japan, The Arctic Circle, Canada, and definitely not Newcastle. Why… eh? Celebrity Big Brother winner and Geordie reality TV star Charlotte Crosby is trading nightclubbin’ up North with stays in four of the world’s most extraordinary communities – including making best buds with Geishas and Inuits.
Extreme globetrotting from a woman who once asked her long-suffering parents if she needed Euros to shop in London. This. Will. Be. Amazing. Watch Char’s culture shock right now, in the trailer for The Charlotte Crosby Experience.
When I met you in the Summerrrrrr. Calvin Harris has started singing about it, so the sun is just around the corner and here at MP! we’re feeling the love.
Oasis are celebrating the arrival of the sun and good times with the launch of a virtual good deed generator for SS14.

Our favourite Neon (don’t tell the others) Asami, is taking over @maximumpop from 7pm tonight! Use #AsamiMaxPop in your tweets and find out her opinion on blue cheese etc.
Welcome to the Jungle is out NOW!
Ariana has been at it again on Instagram, this time she’s shared with us a clip of her new single now confirmed to feature Iggy Azalea.
‘Problem’ premieres on April 27th and hasn’t had an official video shot for it yet, Ms Grande instead has treated us to a snippet of the lyric video which features a very Justin Bieber-esque ‘one less problem without ya!’ whisper.
Here at MP! Towers we’ve been counting down the days ’til Austin Mahone releases his long-awaited debut album. He already caused a stir when he recently announced his one-off UK show and now we’ve got a peak at the track listing and cover art for ‘The Secret’! The album will feature his recent Pitbull collaboration ‘Mmm Yeah’ as well as seven other brand new songs.
‘The Secret’ Tracklist:
Till I Found You
Next to You
Mmm Yeah (feat. Pitbull)
Can’t Fight This Love
All I Ever Need
The One I’ve Waited For (Bonus Track)
Shadow (Acoustic) [Bonus Track]
The excitement doesn’t stop there though: Austin has just uploaded another track from the album called ‘Til I Find You’, and it’s a certified pop banger of epic proportions. May 26th simply cannot come quick enough.
Jedward are back! Yes, the gravity defying hair enthusiasts have returned once more with a brand new single in the hopes of taking over the charts once again.
The boys have just premiered new track ‘Free Spirit’ and have been busy working away on their fourth, yes FOURTH album, which will be due out later this year. Not only that, but the brothers have apparently written and produced the album all by themselves!
‘Free Spirit’ sees the lads going in a slightly more mature direction – whilst still keeping a healthy dose of pop in the mix of course – so if it’s any indicator of the album that’ll be fine by us. Sounding good, boys!
One of the hottest tunes around at the moment is Kiesza’s ‘Hideaway’, which has just stormed into the UK charts at number 1, so it’s only fitting that we get a few high profile cover versions from some of our fave popstars.
However we’re pretty sure nothing is going to top this amazing rendition by Neon Jungle. The girls give it a more acoustic flavour but still keep the funky beat of the original flowing throughout. They’ve even managed to put some saxophone in it! Not since Katy Perry’s ‘Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F) have we been so excited by the addition of a saxophone.
We’d like a studio version of this please, girls!
Katy Perry recently announced she would be teaming up with Claire’s Accessories for her exclusive ‘Prism’ collection and we’ve got a peak at some of what she’s got in store!
There are some amazing ‘Roar’ inspired jewellery pieces, notebooks and some snazzy phone covers too but sadly we didn’t get our much sought after ‘Dark Horse’ grill… Oh well, maybe next time.
