Promo is about to get in full swing for the new ‘Four’ album. If you weren’t lucky enough to nab one of those elusive tickets to their signing yesterday, don’t fret. We’ve got a few more hand signed copies just casually laying around the MP! Office*.
*They’re actually locked in a safe and only our intern knows the code, because she’s the most trustworthy.
We’ve got a bit of a soft spot for Fifth Harmony here at MP! Towers. The former X Factor USA runners up have released a handful of pretty amazing songs over the last year or so and even flirted with R&B on the fierce ‘BO$$’. However, the girls are back to their pop-tastic best on new single ‘Sledgehammer’ and we couldn’t happier. HNNNRK. ALARM POP.
Penned by the endlessly talented Meghan Trainor, ‘Sledgehammer’ is a sugary, pulsating ode to those overwhelming feelings you get whenever you’re around your crush. And possibly some references to sweating too but we’re not sure. Sadly we can totes relate to that as well.
The vaguely 80s inspired production is sublime though, and those pitched up “oh oh” bits at the end of each line in the chorus are basically to die for. We’re in love.
Not too long ago the amazing Lorde unveiled the near flawless track list for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 featuring the likes of Tove Lo, Charli XCX and a whole host of cutting edge pop stars. It was basically like the best playlist ever.
Up until now though, ‘track 5′ on the album had remained a mystery (ooh er) but now the cat’s out of the bag – It’s none other than Ariana bloody Grande!
Announcing the news via livestream with her fans, the ‘Problem’ singer revealed that the song will be a collaboration between herself, Lorde and hit maker / producer extraordinaire Diplo. No word yet on the title but Ms. Grande has described it as “a very interesting song” and “very different”.
Daniel Radcliffe is known for many things – playing the world’s most famous fictional wizard for one – but apparently he’s been moonlighting as a rapper on the side all this time!
Whilst promoting his new movie ‘Horns’ on ‘The Tonight Show’ with Jimmy Fallon, MC Rad (ok, we may need to work on that one) revealed his love of hip hop and his obsession with learning intricate rhymes. He even went as far as performing Blackalicious’ 1999 hit ‘Alphabet Aerobics’, accompanied by house band The Roots, and basically killed it. Second career maybe?
We still haven’t really recovered from the release of Taylor Swift’s 1989 AKA International Day of The Swift on Monday. Since then Tay Tay has been tirelessly doing the rounds on chat shows, hosting listening parties and generally getting her promo on, big style.
Part of her busy schedule included a visit to The Late Show With David Letterman where T Swiz treated the lucky audience to a fab performance of ‘Welcome To New York’, resplendent in a sparkly green dress and hair coiffed to perfection. Oh, and those side hand claps during the first chorus. WE CANNOT.
The ‘Shake It Off’ singer also hung around long enough to have a quick chat with David about her super amazing private album playbacks with her fans at her ACTUAL HOUSE which we are still not jealous about. Nope. Not at all. Totally over it. Whatevs’.
Taylor, why do you have to be so perfect all the time?
Capitol TV have uploaded the final two parts of the new mini online series ‘District Voices’ have been put online. The series has been created for the build up to the new Hunger Games film, ‘Mockingjay: Part 1′.
District 9 is the first to be featured where we can see how grain is used to create great foods and see how many different treats are created. Finally, District 6 shows how the transportation hub operates which also includes how the peacekeepers create highly powered machines to protect the Capitol. Continue reading →
