Canadian songstress Carly Rae Jepsen smashed global playlists and charts with her earworm Call Me Maybe three years ago. 

It was arguably the biggest track of 2012 in the world with thousands of covers, remixes and parodoies.

Though her first single I Really Like You from her latest album couldn’t replicate the success, Carly did hit the big time again with the latest single Run Away with Me. The second single off E•MO•TION received widespread rave reviews amongst music critics.

We absolutely love her new album as well and is definitely a strong contender for the best pop album of 2015!

To celebrate the release of Emotion, the gang at Universal Music have kindly thrown five E•MO•TION hampers (album, poster and folder) in our direction and we’re giving them away to you!

And you could win one of them in just 2 simple steps!

1) Follow us on Twitter.

2) Simply tweet the message “When the lights go out, Run Away With Me ! Gimme a set of Carly Rae Jepsen's EMOTION hamper! "

We might be done with our recent massive SG50 giveaway during Singapore's National Day, but we're firing on all cylinders this week with another fab giveaway from the cool team at Warner Music.

The cool kids from Echosmith delivered a sincere performance in Singapore two weeks ago and we've been suffering from post-concert depression ever since. It's not helping that their latest single Let's Love is ridiculously catchy and it's climbing up the music charts fast.

Now we know physical albums are becoming rarer these days especially titles from Warner Music. But the fab folks know music fans like to own physical copies of their favourite bands so they have kindly gifted us Echosmith's debut album to give away.

But that's not all. These aren't just regular albums. These are SIGNED Echosmith Talking Dreams album AND posters. Yes, the 3 siblings (minus Jamie who was away with his wife) have put their elbow grease into them and inked them all with their names.

 
 

And you could win one of them in just 2 simple steps!

1) Follow us on Twitter.

2) Simply tweet the message “So let's love #SpinorBinMusic while we are young! Gimme a signed album and poster from Echosmith! http://bit.ly/echosmithsg"

It’s been a phenomenal 2015 thus far for British outfit Years & Years.

The pop trio kicked things off by winning the BBC’s prestigious ‘Sound Of 2015′ poll, beating out chart favourite James Bay in the process. But then things really shifted into a higher gear when their last 2 singles hit No.1 and No.2 on the UK singles chart.

The second half of the year promises to be just as big, if not bigger, with the release of their debut album Communion in Asia last month.

So before things get too crazy for the band, the generous folks at Universal Music Singapore have kindly thrown five sets of Years & Years goodies (Communion album + Tote Bag) in our direction and we’re giving them away to you!

 

As usual, taking part is a piece of cake...

It seems that Gold Coast native Cody Simpson has been doing plenty of growing up lately. Not only are his looks changing (look at his incredible guns) changing, but so too is his music.

His new music gives a much more mature organic vibe - similar to Jason Mraz back catalogue and it's not a bad thing in our books.

The team at LAMC productions have earlier announced that they would be staging the Aussie's debut concert in Singapore on August 10 and tickets have been flying off the counters.

Concert Details:

Date                : 10 August 2015, Monday
Venue             : Kallang Theatre
Ticket at $78, $88, $108, $128 available here.
