WIN: 5 Copies of The Vamps' 'Wake Up' Album!

Singapore fans of The Vamps are no doubt aware by now that as part of a massive global tour, the British band will descend upon The Coliseum, Hard Rock Hotel Singapore for a special one-off show on January 26. 

The Vamps will be playing all the songs from their recently released album Wake Up. And we have a contest to win meet & greet passes with the boys when they land... only for ticket holders!

The British boy band will be pulling out all the stops to match the success of their debut album and it looks like they are on track with the release of their latest single Rest Your Love.

What still gets us, even now, is the fact they play their own instruments. It's a silly thing to say, but so many groups just stand up and sing, The Vamps actually put so much effort into the music they make. And with One Direction going on hiatus, The Vamps may probably steal the headlines from them soon.

To celebrate the release of Wake Up, the cool peeps at Universal Music have swung 5 copies of the album (which includes a concert DVD at the O2 arena) in our direction. And naturally, we’d like to give them away to you.

Here's how to get into the draw!

1) Follow us on Twitter.

2) Simply tweet the message “I wanna WAKE UP to The Vamps' latest album! ! Gimme a copy now! "

Good luck!

WIN: 5 Copies of Adele's '25' Album!

It takes most artists a year, possible two or even three to notch up a double platinum certification these days. But not Adele.

In the US, the album sold 3.38 million copies in its first week of release, marking the largest single-week sales for an album since *NSYNC’s No Strings Attached in 2000.

Lead single Hello remains one of our favourite tunes of 2015 while follow-up single When We Were Young further showcases Adele as one of the greatest singers alive today.

We'll be hearing Hello, When We Were Young and the other nine songs on repeat for many many months to come. And we want you to be able to enjoy Adele's music as well!

It’s an important milestone for Directioners across the planet, with the boys from British boyband One Direction releasing their fifth and final album, before they take a break and potentially pursue their own solo careers.

The campaign for Made In The A.M. kicked off in spectacular fashion, with Drag Me Down becoming the boys’ first number one single since Zayn Malik's departure in March 2015.

Although Niall Horan has intimated that he and his band mates are going to tour again after their forthcoming ‘hiatus’, we think it would be a while before we see the mega-boyband get together again. So let's just make do with their new album in the meantime!

To celebrate the album’s release, the ace team at Sony Music have shot five copies of One Direction’s album across to us to give away to you.

And here’s how you could score yourself a copy!

1) Follow us on Twitter.

2) Simply tweet the message “It would be PERFECT if I can own One Direction's latest album 'Made in the A.M.', ! Gimme a copy! "

Good luck!
