2015 has been one of the most exciting years in music in recent years. Every month saw the release of at least one fantastic album, many of which went unnoticed. Thinking about it, it’s crazy that in one year alone, Justin Bieber, One Direction, Lana Del Rey, The Weeknd, Adele, all released albums. As the end of the year is near, Trendio’s editors narrowed the albums that made quite the impression, one certain to last way beyond 2015. Check out our picks for ’15 Best Albums of 2015′ below and be sure to drop a line, agreeing / disagreeing with...more

You can not go wrong with Tori Kelly, like EVER! Last week, the singer-songwriter revealed she was releasing a brand new song entitled Hollow. In true Tori Kelly fashion, outside of the title and artwork, she revealed little to nothing about the song, leaving fans wondering if it was a new single (from her sophomore album), a b-side of her debut album, or even a song lifted off a movie’s soundtrack. As of 35 minutes before its release, these Hollow questions were yet to be answered. But, honestly, who cares?! Hollow is a strikingly-powerful track, skewed to garner mainstream attention....more
The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards is been held today (Aug 30) at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, CA. Like previous years, the list of attendees is star-studded. Artists like Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, Demi Lovato, Ed Sheeran, The Weekend, Tori Kelly, are not only scheduled to appear, they will also be taking the stage to perform their current hits. Unlike previous years, there has been little to no hype surrounding the VMAs, even with teen-actress-gone-rogue host, Miley Cyrus. Nonetheless, the show must go on and it shall, at 9|8c on MTV and if you’re in Canada, tune into Much...more
It’s only been a month since Tori Kelly released her debut album “Unbreakable Smile.” And things have gotten so crazy since then and they have yet to slow down. Countless performances and interviews all across the country, even a free concert for the public via Jimmy Kimmel. But none of those things compares to when Tori takes it back to her roots to perform something super stripped down and just lets it all out. That’s essentially what she did in this special performance of a song from her debut record, titled “Talk” which was performed on top of the roof...more
The day is finally here. Tori Kelly’s debut album “Unbreakable Smile” is officially released for all to hear. We’ve been following Tori Kelly for as long as we can remember so this is definitely something worth celebrating. A decades worth of work went into this album, as Tori has reiterated several times. From the revealing of tracks on the album via Pinterest to enduring snippets of songs on Instagram + hearing a few selected tracks in shaky fan videos from the tour for the last few weeks, what an exciting (and L O N G) wait it has been.
This is by far the most hectic week of Tori Kelly’s life. She was just slaying at the #MMVAs yesterday, her album is released for all to hear tomorrow, and she’ll be stopping by the Elvis Duran show tomorrow as well. But let’s focus on today. On Saturday afternoon during a First Listening Party/Fan Q&A via twitter, Kelly announced that the music video for her most current single “Should’ve Been Us” would be released on Monday (today). “”should’ve been us” has little hints of 90s r&b vibes.. so excited about the VIDEO COMING OUT THIS MONDAY” she tweeted. And now...more
