The nominations are in for the 2016 MTV European Music Awards – and it’s Beyonce and Justin Bieber who lead the field with a total of five nominations each.

Adele follows closely behind with four nods, while The Weeknd, Rihanna, Drake, Ariana Grande and Kanye West find themselves receiving nominations in three different categories.

Needless to say, we would be most looking forward to catching three-time MTV EMA winner Bruno Mars taking the stage for the first live global performance of his new single 24K Magic! It's been three years since he released any solo material and this slick single keeps the party going since his last collaboration with Mark Ronson on Uptown Funk.

MTV has also just announced Bebe Rexha as the host in the annual awards show on 7 November where the molten-rich voice singer will also perform some of her chart-topping international hits including her smash dance single, In The Name Of Love.

Our fave Gentle Bones is also nominated for Best Southeast Asia Act alongside Bunkface (Malaysia), Đông Nhi (Vietnam), Raisa (Indonesia), Sarah Geronimo (Philippines), Thaitanium (Thailand), and Yuna (Malaysia)!

We have 3 x MTV EMA goodie bags and 1 x EVOS headphone to giveaway in celebration of Gentle Bones' nomination!

Here's how you can win one:

1) Follow us on Twitter.

2) Simply tell us how you are watching the MTV EMAs this year with the hashtag #SpinorBinMusicXMTVEMA

Good luck!

MTV EMA will broadcast live on MTV Asia on Monday, 7 November at 3am (TH/WIB) and 4am (MY/PH/SG). The show repeats on the same day at 8pm (TH/WIB) and 9pm (MY/PH/SG).

Now the 35-year-old sisters are keeping the synthpop train chugging with their eighth studio album Love You To Death

To promote the album, Tegan and Sara are gearing up for their world tour which kicks off in South Korea next month! Of course, a regional tour is not complete without a stopover in Singapore!

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"

Good luck!
