A Christmas Playlist: For Harmonizers

If you're a harmonizer, this is our Christmas gift to you.

It is universally agreed that Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. The spirit of giving with thankful hearts in the company of loved ones is something to be cherished.

So this Christmas, we decided to gift Fifth Harmony fans a specially curated playlist. This playlist consists of songs and covers by the multiplatinum-selling girl group Fifth Harmony. Over the years, they have never failed to bring the joy of Christmas to everyone with their angelic voices.

It is no different this year as they brought us the new majestic track Can You See from, The Star, an animated comedy film that tells the true story of Christmas. One song is definitely not enough to fill the entire holiday season, so here's a compilation of Fifth Harmony's best vocals to accompany you this Christmas.


1. Can You See


2. All I Want For Christmas Is You


3. Silent Night


4. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas


5. Christmas Medley

That's exactly what happens when the music takes over.

Camila Cabello has recently accepted the 'Breakthrough Artist' Award at Billboard's Women in Music last week. Apart from receiving her deserving title, the singer-songwriter started the show with a performance of her chart topping single, Havana.

The songstress stripped down the performance with minimal instrumentation so that her amazing vocals could take centre stage. With just a guitarist, cajonist and pianist, Cabello was able to elevate the song to a whole new level that really showcased her Cuban roots.

In the middle of the song, at approximately two minutes and twelve seconds into the performance, Cabello was so consumed by the music that she made a hilarious eye twitch. Many fans have observed the unconventional facial expression and have pointed it out it the comments section of the video.

The 20-year-old singer acknowledged her involuntary eye movement and addressed it on Instagram by posting a two-part series of her performance tape with the caption, "i do love a good eye twitch" followed by some emojis of the girl who shrugs her shoulders.

More than meets the eye than a pretty wedding dress.

Demi Lovato recently dropped her highly anticipated music video for Tell Me You Love Me after teasing several photographs of her posing in a beautiful wedding dress which made a lot of fans very excited.

The music video starts off with a scene where Lovato's on-screen boyfriend pops the question to which the pop star said yes to. Following the successful marriage proposal, the couple though seemingly in love, faced various struggles of their own which resulted in constant arguments.

One of the many disagreements they had involved Lovato receiving a call from someone named "Erik" and when her fiancé asked who it was, she dismissively replied "nobody". After explaining that he is one of her best friends, Lovato's fiancé defended himself after being accused of being jealous saying that he does not need to be jealous to not like what is happening. The short story ended with Lovato's fiancé apologising and walking away from her on their wedding day.

Many fans are convinced that this music video is Lovato's way of communicating the pain and struggles of her long-time relationship with Wilmer Valderrama that almost resulted in marriage but has unfortunately ended in June of last year. In addition, many have also speculated that one of the causes of the breakup is Lovato's BFF, Nick Jonas, who is represented as "Erik" in this music video.

She demonstrates that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

At this year's Billboard's Women in Music, Selena Gomez was rightfully awarded the title of "Woman of the Year" with all the success that she has achieved despite her many struggles in life.

The 25-year-old singer began her acceptance speech by saying that her best friend, Francia Raisa, should be receiving this award instead. While fighting back tears, Gomez expressed her gratitude to Francia saying that she basically saved her life.

Trying to pull herself together, Gomez continued to convey her appreciation for the platform she has been given to be a part of something bigger than herself. In addition, she feels blessed as her love for people helps her make others feel great.

Amongst thanking her team and family who has stuck with her throughout the year filled with tribulations, Gomez acknowledged the older women in the music industry who have paved the way for younger girls in the business. Having no idea how to repay everyone for what they have done for her, the songstress blurted out that she'll maybe do so by making an epic album next year.

Calling it the truth.

Ever since Taylor Swift released Call It What You Want earlier this month, we had quite some time to play the song over and over again while analysing the lyrics from beginning till end.

However, instead of figuring out who inspired the song, we found something possibly even cooler. We realised that the song felt very relatable as it was full of statements relating the truths that we often encounter in life.


1. "My castle crumbled overnight"

We couldn't help but think of Swift's single, New Romantics, that contains the lyrics "Cause baby I could build a castle. Out of all the bricks they threw at me." This reminded us that even though you had previously managed to arise triumphant from your struggles, sometimes, whatever you have built for yourself gets destroyed in seconds.


2. "Jokers dressed like kings"

Basically, this lyric presents us with the reality that a lot of people in this world try to portray themselves as something that they are not. They act as though they are the greatest thing in this world but in fact, they are just jokers pretending to be something better than they actually are.


3. "All the liars are calling me one"

In life, there will be many people who will call you out or pick on you. However, you don't have to listen to them because they are honestly just jealous of your success and are essentially projecting their insecurities on you.

Clearly, she was born a songwriter.

Miley Cyrus recently sat down for an Interview with CBS Sunday Morning to talk about almost everything from her latest music to growing up as a Disney star to even her early days in music.

The 24-year-old singer admitted that she is very grateful to have been in the Disney universe as she was able to pursue the two things that she really loves - acting and singing. She realised that the reason why Hannah Montana was so well-received back in the day was due to the fact that Hannah felt real. In reality, she was the one who was under the wig and sometimes people forget that simply because she loved being that character.

When asked about when she started playing music, Cyrus responded by saying that she never actually started playing music, rather, it was something that had always been in her. At the young age of 8, she had already written songs that were good and the first song she wrote was titled, Pink Isn't A Colour, It's An Attitude.

Cyrus labelled that song "very deep" and went on to reveal other songs she penned with topics such as her evil mother locking her up in her room or making her go to the mall to watch her shop as she sits there all day as punishment.

It would be really cool if Cyrus were to release an album of songs she wrote as a child. We would definitely listen to every single one of them!

More than just the ooh-na-nas.

It's been about a week since Camila Cabello released her highly anticipated music video for her chart-topping single, Havana. The music video is basically a mini short film with Cabello playing multiple characters together with Lele Pons and LeJuan James.

Although it was a feel-good music video that incorporated a lot of elements that brought the song to life in a visual way, we feel that Cabello had a lot more to say through this music video than a simple love story with a cultural background. Here's what we think she was trying to communicate to us:


1. Her dancing has improved tremendously.

Prior to stardom, Cabello has vouched that she would never dance publicly because she has absolutely no control over her limbs. However, in this music video, Cabello showed off her newfound confidence doing the salsa.


2. Although she loves romance, she knows that it is more important to love herself first before any guy.

In the music video, Cabello is seen enjoying watching dramatic soap operas because she loves fantasy and the idea of love. In a turn of events, instead of accepting the boy of her dreams, she decides to choose self-love and write her own story.


3. She is not one-dimensional - Karla vs Camila Cabello.

Cabello was referenced by her first name, Karla, by her on-screen grandmother. This reminded us that although Cabello is now a huge superstar, behind all the glitz and glamour, she is still the same girl before fame who sometimes prefer to stay home and watch tv on the couch.

Speculation or simply the truth?

Since the release of Demi Lovato's sixth studio album, Tell Me You Love Me, many have been praising and enjoying the innovative melodies and authentic lyrics from the body of work.

With every successful artist comes a group of very dedicated and curious fans who will analyse and break down every single lyric to figure out the details of an artist's personal life. Demi's fanbase, also known as the Lovatics, is no exception to this description especially with regard to one of the tracks on the album titled, Ruin The Friendship.

The detective work has been done and the clues have been pointing to one person in particular - the homegirl's best friend, Nick Jonas.

Upon hearing the song title for the first time, one might think that it's about ending a friendship in a negative way. However, it's about being secretly in love with one's best friend and wanting to be more than just friends.

Lovato has neither confirmed nor denied if this song was written about her homie, Nick Jonas. When asked about the inspiration behind the track, she simply replied that she will never reveal who she writes her songs about.

Spill the truth.

During Charlie Puth's recent visit to the Late Late Show with James Cordon, the 25-year-old singer found himself playing the infamous game of Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts together with Josh Gad, Michelle Dockery and Rachel Bloom on the talk show.

Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts is a simple game whereby the celebrities will be asked a rather controversial question and if they refuse to answer it, they would have to down one of the distasteful items on the table. The game consisted of disgusting foods such as cow tongue, salmon seaweed smoothie and turkey testicles which made the Attention singer gag several times due to his sensitive stomach. Puth revealed that he can hardly be around brussels sprouts so those unusual food items were indeed torturous for him.

This made Puth really nervous and when it came to his turn, his question did not make it easy for him to avoid ingesting anything on the table. Since the American singer has previously recorded songs with Meghan Trainor and Selena Gomez, he was asked which one of the two artists is a better singer.

Being the gentlemen that he is and not wanting to make any of the fandoms mad, Puth nibbled a grasshopper to avoid himself from getting bashed online. This made us think, did Charlie really have an answer in mind that he chose not to reveal or did he simply not want to create a fan war?

Seriously, this is a whole new level.

Miley Cyrus has certainly made her mark in the music scene since her early days in the industry as Hannah Montana. From her hits constantly dominating the charts to her controversial antics at award shows, we can confidently say that Cyrus is a notable household name.

Since her comeback with Malibu, Cyrus has been making many appearances on talk shows to promote her latest body of work and to advocate for the many organisations that she has been partnering with to help make the world a better place.

Her appearance on Carpool Karaoke with James Corden is easily said to be one of the better episodes. Cyrus and Corden basically had loads of fun by doing weird things like trying to cry on command, licking stamps and talking about the events happening in the pop star's life thus far.

Not only did Cyrus belt her old classics and newer songs, she also revealed the biggest change in her life post-2013 VMAs. That incident made her realise that she has a big influence on the media, so instead of doing something for the sake of being controversial, she has been using her platform to be an activist for the many issues that she's concerned about.

It is one thing to sing well and it is another to harmonise to your own voice. Cyrus definitely showed everyone that she SLAYS the music game for a reason and that is because of her flawless vocals and the unique tonality of her voice. Check out her Carpool Karaoke here!
