Ariana Grande's last album My Everything was the moment she transformed from Nickelodeon teen actress to a chart-topping international pop princess. Following up the smashes from her sophomore was never gonna be easy, but here she is, ready to prove that she has all it takes to establish her pop status. 

Dangerous Woman is her strongest album yet, and is also a far more mature offering. Her label is finally allowing her to be on her album alone again, with the last album featuring rappers in over half of the album tracks. 

 

No doubt this will top charts and win awards. So if you would like to win a limited edition Dangerous Woman sleep mask, here is what you gotta do!

2) Simply tweet the message “I’m a dangerous woman/boy/man #spinorbinmusic! <3 the album! http://bit.ly/aripromo "

WIN: 5 Copies of Fifth Harmony's '7/27'

The girls from Fifth Harmony are finally getting the attention and credit they deserve in the music industry after achieving huge success with their singles Worth It and Work From Home (even though we still firmly believe that Sledgehammer was the better pop single and was criminally overlooked).

Their artistic and creative vision blends together well in their sophomore album 7/27. While the ladies were trying to figure out their sound in their debut, they sound more confident in what their sound is without trying too hard in their latest album.

Fifth Harmony have come to slay 2016.

And we’re giving you the chance to own a copy of the album.

We’ve got five copies to go! And it’s simple to win one:  

1) Follow us on Twitter.

2) Simply tweet the message “Give me a copy of Fifth Harmony's '7/27' #SpinorBinMusic! It's one of my fave albums this year! http://bit.ly/5hpromosg"

Good luck!

WIN: 5 Copies of Beyoncé's 'Lemonade'

So much has already been said about Beyoncé's latest album Lemonade and a lot has been around the politics and messages behind the songs. 

What about the music? 

It’s just astonishing how much musical ground Beyoncé's sixt studio album covers (experimental electronic music, reggae, dancehall, blues, country) without sounding like a forced effort to be diverse. The production is so full and rich and attentive. Queen Bey’s vocals continue her trend of being richer and more powerful with each release. As we already know, the lyrics are endlessly quotable. This is before getting into any of the sociopolitical context from the film, any of the references.

The main thing that worked for this album is not choosing a single tone for every song on the album. Beyoncé is VERY talented and doesn't need to stick to a single genre of music to be successful and it shows in this album. She has her slow ballad, her rap, her slight country, and her pop. Beyoncé worked on different sounds for each song and pulled them together perfectly. Overall a major step up from Beyoncé - her best album to date.

To celebrate the album’s release, thanks to Sony Music, we’ve got FIVE copies of Lemonade ready to give away to you.

Here's how:

1) Follow us on Twitter.

2) Simply tweet the message “Give me a copy of Beyoncé's 'Lemonade' #SpinorBinMusic! It's one of my fave albums this year! http://bit.ly/beypromosg"

Good luck!

WIN: 5 Copies of Zayn's 'Mind of Mine'

Zayn's long awaited debut album Mind of Mine shows the individuality he had desperately wanted to showcase in his work with One Direction, but understandably, could not. His music isn't mainstream in the least, so hopefully his intentions for separating from the rest of his group wasn't commercially motivated.

The 23-year-old shows many different aspects of his artistry within this one album: his ability to write songs, his vocal skills, and his ability to put together a cohesive album. Although I don't believe this is going to be considered his best album as he continues to release music in the future, this is a great modern R&B album from an ex boyband member.

To celebrate its release, the fine team at Sony Music threw a handful of copies in our direction to give away to you. The deluxe edition comprises 18 tracks in all, including hit single Pillowtalk. And here's how you could score yourself - or someone you love - a copy!

 

1) Follow us on Twitter.

2) Simply tweet the message “Give me a copy of Zayn's 'Mind of Mine' #SpinorBinMusic! It's one of my fave albums this year! http://bit.ly/zaynseapromo"
