I think it goes without saying that we all enjoyed the first Guardians of the Galaxy film mostly because of its soundtrack… and of course, having Chris Pratt as Star-Lord.
But since the franchise is back with a second film, it means that we also have a new playlist to devour. It's the epitome of "oldies but goodies," transporting us back to the 70s.
Awesome Mix Vol. 2 is the perfect dose of nostalgia and just what Peter Quill needs to be reminded of her mom, Meredith. Director James Gunn shares, "She's a music lover, but she's completely not elitist. If it's something that's thought of as goofy and pop, she likes it. If it's cool or funk, she likes it. She just likes hooks and melodies."
It's the perfect "dad" playlist, if you ever just want to reminsce those familiar but vague songs your dad played during the entirety of your childhood.
Go ahead and Awesome Mix Vol. 2 a listen. You might just reignite the oldies junkie in you!

About a week ago, Charlie Puth released his new single Attention which did, in fact, get a lot of attention.
Then, yesterday, Charlie put out a music video to go with the song and it's at 6 million views already! Roughly 10 hours after tweeting the link, Charlie added that it had been one of his quickest videos to reach a million views ever!
This video is what you'd expect to see for a slow pop love song like this - a hot girl, dancing in a club at night, except what really stands out is the lighting and colours, which gives the video a very high and crisp quality. Of course, the other highlight is Charlie's beautiful voice in the song itself, so this video is a great piece visually and aurally.
Also, there's the interesting rumour that this track might be a diss at his ex, Bella Thorne, so it just adds to the appeal of the song and video.
Is a new collaboration about to drop? Well, there has been no confirmation as of yet but there are just too many signs pointing at it. Get the low-down here.
Oct 2016 – Liam Payne Hitting Up The DJ Booth With Zedd (Earphone users be warned - loud screaming)
Mar 2017 – What Does A Wink Mean?! Could this 2-second preview be the collaboration?
Apr 2017 – Are We Playing The Waiting Game For Their Collaboration? Because The Clock Is Ticking!
While we wait out, let us know what do you guys think? Is there something amazing in the works or they are just being really great friends…

After weeks of speculation, US pop sensation (and still the reigning princess of pop, in our hearts) Britney Spears has officially announced that she will be performing in Singapore for the first time this June!
Expect a night of nonstop party train of iconic pop james and razar-sharp dance moves as her recent Las Vegas residency show was voted "Best Show" and "Best Bachelorette Party" in the 2015 Best of Las Vegas poll.
Even though we knew she doesn't dance or sing like she used to, we still can't wait to catch this show cuz IT'S BRITNEY, BITCH!
Date : 30 June 2017, Friday
Venue : TBA
Ticket Prices : TBA

Singapore GP has revealed the headliners that will be gracing our shores this September for the 2017 F1 race. If you haven't seen it already, check out the lineup here:
Alas, the tribe has spoken: Singapore is not impressed.
Having seen the likes of Bon Jovi and Mariah Carey in the past years, the 2017 lineup might just be the least exciting. As someone who have always been pleasantly surprised by the lineups each year, I can't help but feel a tinge of disappointment. It also doesn't help that this could be the last race in the country. Unless a new wave of headliners are to be announced in the coming days, it seems like the F1 race would leave Singapore for the last time with only a fizzle.
After doing some analysis, I have boiled down the underwhelming 2017 lineup to the lack of these 3 acts (that I would like to strongly urge Singapore GP to consider adding).
1) An Asian Headliner
As pointed out in Facebook comments, it has been 3 years since the F1 race saw their last asian headliner.
Who would be perfect: X Japan
2) A World-Class Act
The Chainsmokers and Ariana Grande may be some of the recognisable names of today, but... they ain't no Queen.
Who would be perfect: U2
3) A Veteran Performer For The Non-Teenagers
One of the biggest complaints about the lineup is that it appeals mostly to teens. While one could argue that there's still Duran Duran and Seal for the more seasoned crowd, what about those who fall in between?
Who would be perfect: Foo Fighters
