In late 2014, John Splithoff released his first song, the contemplative “What If She Wants You” and then went two years before releasing his next song “Sing To You” (his most popular song on Spotify to date). It’s natural to wonder what an artist does in those two years, but one can assume he was honing his style and the sound he wanted to make his signature.

We have been patiently waiting for new Years & Years music and it looks like the trio is almost ready for their big comeback.

Even though a whole bunch of people didn’t think “Bad Liar” was a good song when it was intially released, the Selena Gomez track still ranks high up on the list of best tracks released this year, so far. With the release of her new album, still yet-to-be-named, looming, Gomez has unveiled a brand new track, titled “Fetish” and featuring American rapper Gucci Mane. Interesting, that’s the first word that comes to mind upon first-listen of the -produced track which hears Gomez’s aire vocals atop echos of a slow but delicate-sounding track. Hear the song above!
Well, it’s official. All the lads of what used to be One Direction, have either made it into the solo-sphere, become dads, or both. In the past month alone, we’ve heard a new single from Niall Horan and full-length debut album from Harry Styles. Up next? Liam Payne. Released moments ago Strip That Down, as the is titled, features Migos’ Quavo, and it makes Payne’s first solo release since leaving 1D and becoming a dad. Upon first listen, one could say that Payne is not going the stripped down, mellow route with his solo material. Instead, he is infusing pop...more
