Giveaways

Madonna is a living legend, and it feels almost disrespectful to offer anything but praise.

Fortunately, her thirteenth studio album - Rebel Heart - comes as a bold re-affirmation of the Queen of Pop's supremacy in a genre she created and perfected.

You'd think by now, she would've ran out of ideas, but it's safe to say - this little vixen still has some tricks up her sleeves. I've been a loyal fan since the groundbreaking epic, Ray of Light. But she's been writing timeless, infectious pop songs for as long as I've been alive. The 19-track album is her most intimate/reflective album since the highly underrated, American Life.

And my god, how beautiful does she look on the album cover?! Still striking as ever. But enough of that - we know how much you love a good giveaway, so we're not holding back!

To celebrate the album's release, the awesome team at Universal Music Singapore has kindly sent us five sets of AMPed download cards worth $118 each. Each card gives you access to AMPed Premium content including unlimited download of music for 12 months!

To win, here's what you need to do:

Kelly Clarkson has been gone for a while building a life for herself but while gone has come back with a strong album of great songs - Piece By Piece.

I can already see some of it's singles running their way up to the Top 10 and becoming best-sellers in the near future. The entire album is amusing and rich in lyrics, while the music unquestionably has the true essence of the Kelly Clarkson we have known for years.

Kelegend's voice is what distances her from her pop peer group. She isn't big on image, not big on production, and won't be the one leading teens and others to new trends. What she does is continue to be herself, live her brand and record amazing music.

Now imagine that your favourite pop website – you know the one you visit every single day forever and ever amen - decides to have a competition whereby you could win one of five copies of Piece By Piece! Can you imagine!? With very big thanks to our friends at Sony Music Malaysia, we’re giving you the chance to win a copy!

Here's what you gotta do!

1) Follow us on Twitter.

2) Simply tweet the message “This is my heartbeat song & I'm gonna play it. Turn it on ! Gimme a copy of 'Piece By Piece'! "

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 - "
