The Chainsmokers & Coldplay - Something Just Like This
album picksmore album picks
Almost the whole album under 5 minutes.
Connor Ball, the bassist, from The Vamps has been releasing many bomb covers in the past few months and he just outdid himself once again.
The 21-year-old musician brilliantly mashed up a couple of songs from Ed Sheeran's Divide album from hits like Shape of You to other fan-favourites such as Happier and Supermarket Flowers.
Connor manages to add his own flavour into the two minute and 27 second mashup and if you listen carefully, you would be able to hear some vamp band elements in the backing track.
What we are saying is that this guy over here deserves more solos in future songs that are going to be released by the band because it would be a crime to let this unique voice be unheard.

Yes, you read that right.
One Direction’s Harry Styles will be the third member from the band to release solo material ever since their hiatus.
This comes after Niall Horan’s This Town and Louis Tomlinson’s collaboration with Steve Aoki on Just Hold on. According to Billboard, this mysterious advertisement was aired in the UK and of course eagle-eyed fans instantly recognised the singer.
By the looks of it, we can expect new material from Harry on April 7!
Now, please excuse me while I mark my calendars.
Looks like 25th of March is a day for Directioners!
Those eyes ~
Let the countdown begin!

Music is great and memes are great.
So when a funny new image surfaced recently, it quickly became viral and resulted in one of the biggest and funniest memes this month. The image is a still of actress Meryl Streep at a SAG Awards show, with her hands around her mouth, presumably yelling something or cheering.
For those that haven't come across it, the meme, usually called Meryl Yelling/Shouting Song Lyrics, is basically when you write a line of lyrics from a song, which is followed by the next line - an iconic one that everyone should know - written out in all caps to highlight the lyrics that "must always be yelled" when that song plays. In this case, Meryl is the one doing the yelling.
If words dont do a good enough job at explaining it, don't worry because here are 10 of the best Meryl shouting song lyric memes and perfect examples that will clarify everything and hopefully bring some laughs to you.
1. Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody
A clear classic where you don't just yell out the lyrics - you try to sing every harmony and instrument at the same time.
2. Beyoncé - Love On Top
Accurate!! I mean those FOUR key changes though. You have to at least attempt it even if your voice cracks and then shatters.
3. Backstreet Boys - Everybody (Backstreet's Back)
You gotta love this song, and this meme was tweeted on the BSB's band account by one of the boys so it makes it extra special.
4. Fergie - Fergalicious
Remember to take a deep breath in before that rap begins and exhale right on that UHHHH
5. Avril Lavigne - Girlfriend
What better song to let out all that lovesick teen angst than Avril's Girlfriend. If Meryl had done some fist pumps, it would've been complete.
6. The Killers - Mr. Brightside
If you play this song, you'd realise that usually every word to this song is shouted but somehow your voice still manages to increase in volume at this specific part.
7. Justin Bieber - Baby ft. Ludacris
Even if you don't want to admit it, we all need to yell a little JB and Ludacris lyrics every now and then.
8. Spice Girls - Wannabe
Yelling that last line is a must, followed by the usual question you ask youself, "What even is a zig-a-zig-ahh?"
9. Flo Rida - Low ft. T-Pain
For everyone's 2000s party jam, you have to yell out the echoes as well for full effect.
10. Mamma Mia The Musical (Originally by ABBA) - Mamma Mia
And finally, when you have Meryl in a music related meme, the theme song to the musical, Mamma Mia has to be included!

Halsey fans rejoice because we now have a release date for her upcoming album, Hopeless Fountain Kingdom.
On the 8th of March, Halsey dropped the name of her second album and also made it known that there would be a little “treasure hunt” to find the album cover once it is ready to be released.
We just got a bit more information about the album on Thursday and it’s the release date of HFK. Halsey tweeted a picture of three tarot cards: The Lovers, The High Priestess and The Star. Each card had a roman numeral on the top which she used to represent the date. Left to right, it read VI, II, XVII. She then tweeted the date in regular numbers just to clarify.
Here are the tweets:
FYI, the date is in the American format so the release date is the 2nd of June 2017.
BUT could the choice of tarot carts also be a clue to the aesthetic of the new album or its album art?
After some digging on Twitter, we’ve found out a bit more about HFK. Apparently, Hopeless Fountain Kingdom is an actual fountain and that she has been planning this for YEARS. All those clues! How sneaky of her!
So it’s likely that the tarot cards hold some meaning to HKF as well but at the moment, no one seems sure of anything. Guess we’ll just have to wait and wait for her to drop more clues!

Zara Larsson might have just released her debut full-length international debut album, So Good, but one track has stood out amongst the rest.
Symphony is Zara’s sixth official single off her album, from which her first single, Lush Life, was released in June 2015, nearly two years ago.
Produced by Grammy-award winning electronic outfit Clean Bandit, the track follows their surprise hit single Rockabye which inarguably launched the career of up-and-coming British singer Anne-Marie.
As upbeat as Symphony is, the video is heartbreaking and might be difficult to watch for many. It tells the story of a conductor mourning the loss of his boyfriend who passed from a car accident. Of course, he conducted his own symphony to recoup and to heal.
The video pretty much falls in line with Zara’s pro-LGBT agenda which is very much needed in a world that is filled with hatred and discrimination today.
The classical-pop single was also given the live treatment it deserves, accompanied by none other than a strings section alongside Clean Bandit.
Listen to the brand-new track below!
