British chart darling Charli XCX, who first rose to fame via her featured performance on Icona Pop's smash hit I Love It (She hates that song now. FYI.), is on a roll lately.

Her collaboration with Iggy Azalea (Fancy) received two Grammy nominations this year and she followed up with two consecutive solo chart hits - Boom Clap and Break The Rules.

The 22-year-old's latest single Doing It, with Rita Ora making a guest appearance, is all set to follow its predecessors into the upper reaches of the chart.

Charli XCX's sophomore album Sucker is good, solid pop. Some of the songs are foot-tappingly catchy, and others are earworms that are hard to not sing while walking around.

It may be called Sucker, but this album rules.

We love to giveaway good albums here at Spin or Bin Music. So what better way to kick off this Chinese New Year than by giving out five copies of Charli XCX's Sucker. Thanks to the ace team at Warner Music Malaysia!

1) Follow us on Twitter.

2) Simply tweet the message “Boom Clap! The sound of my heart when I take part in  giveaway to win Charli XCX's Sucker! Details - "

Good news Harmonizers! Fifth Harmony has finally released their long-awaited debut studio album Reflection!

For the uninitiated, the girl group was assembled on the 2012 edition of ‘The X Factor’ over in the States and although they didn’t win the competition (they finished third), they were subsequently signed by Simon Cowell to his SyCo label

The latest single from the debut album is Sledgehammer. Co-penned by Ms All About That Bass Meghan Trainor, the track is a thumping electro pop number with a driving bassline that sounds like it comes straight from the biggest pop minds of Europe rather than the United States. Check out our full review of the album here!

And what's better than a new giveaway to chase your Monday blues away? With mammoth thanks to the folks at Sony Music Malaysia!

To celebrate the album's release, we've got five shiny new copies to give away and here's what you've got to do to win one!
 

1) Follow us on Twitter.

2) Simply tweet the message “If you could give me Fifth Harmony's latest album right now, it would feel just like a sledgehammer ! "

Comebacks are hard, but Fall Out Boy seem to know how to avoid the risk of a possible failure.

The band choose to borrow from different genres and mix various elements in their latest album American Beauty/American Psycho, in order to craft a sound that is actually their own.

The result is a fine piece of work from the alternative rock heartthrobs that is overflowing with anthems, youth and passion.

Our personal favourite is Uma Thurman which brilliantly juxtaposes the Pulp Fiction actress to The Munsters theme tune - the best FOB has produced in years.

To celebrate the release of American Beauty/American Psycho, we are hosting a swag of giveaway goodness for Fall Out Boy fans! Thanks to the lovely peeps at Universal Music Singapore.

Yes, we are giving away three sets of Fall Out Boy goodness consisting of FOB's brand new album American Beauty/American Psycho, FOB poster, AND a set of FOB nesting dolls!

The joining of McFly & Busted has brought happiness to all.

McBusted, one of the most successful bands of 2014, never do anything by halves and their debut album proves just that.

I have always been more of a McFly supporter than McBusted's, but I have happily accepted this new formation as they seem to be having so much fun.

McBusted proved they are great musicians and can write great music on their new album. Air Guitar is probably the best track and has hints of Busted's breakout hit What I Go To School For.

Their success wasn't only based on their old number one singles. They can and they SHOULD have more number ones, they can and they SHOULD be as famous as they used to be at the beginning of their careers, and most of all they deserve recognition, respect, and a chance from all those people who "hate" them only because "they want McFly back".

Thanks to the ever-lovely folks at Universal Music Singapore, we've got 5 copies of McBusted albums to giveaway!

All you have to do to get in the draw for this giveaway is to show us your best air guitar performance!

Sorry, just joking.

Here's what you really need to do:

1) Follow us on Twitter.

2) Simply tweet the message “I'd like to play the Air Guitar for you ! Gimme a copy of McBusted latest album please! "
