Zayn’s debut album is set to be a hit…

From his debut single ‘Pillowtalk’, Zayn has shown his fans and those in the music world just what he’s been working on.

A few weeks ago, Zayn posted the audio to song ‘iT’s YoU‘, a slow relaxing tune with Zayn giving us a taste of his vocal range as he hits the high notes in the chorus. Zayn then surprised his Twitter followers with the link to the latest track ‘LIKE I WOULD’.

Fans instantly fell in love with the track, which is more likely to get you on a dancefloor unlike Zayn’s previously released songs.

Personally this is my favourite song that Zayn has released so far. It has a Can’t Feel My Face/The Weeknd kind of vibe, and it’s been on repeat and in my head all day.

It’s also been reported that Zayn was filming in Manchester, UK for his next music video, which apparently takes place in a housing estate.

The future with streaming music…

Kanye recently released his long-awaited album, The Life of Pablo for Tidal subscribers to get the first listen.

Subscriptions to Tidal soon reached 2.5 million subscribers, which is more than double the amount before TLOP was added to the streaming service (according to Fader).

But with services like Tidal, how will this affect fans and the way that we get our music?

And the Video Vanguard Award goes to…

It’s undeniable – Kanye West is a cultural icon.

Whether you love him or hate him, Kanye has made his mark. Whether it’s designing Yeezy’s, running fashion shows, producing tracks, performing or writing music, Ye’s impressive skillset means he can turn his hand to anything. He may have caused a stir at Glastonbury this year when he yelled on stage “I’m the greatest living rock star on the planet!!!”, but you have to admit… he does have a point.

I know, I know. You’re all like “But that video came out days ago… we’ve all seen it. The novelty isn’t there anymore…”

Excuuuse me, but I’m still a little giddy over it.
