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.

Let’s Talk About Boys – Boy Bands, That Is!

Following on from the last post, Girl Bands Now & Then: What Makes Them So Popular?, it would only be fair to give the boys some recognition too!

After finding a box of CDs in my room last week, it was as though I’d come across a time capsule! Filled with albums by the Spice Girls, Girls Aloud, Steps, and boy-bands like Blue, *N Sync, Boyzone, a1 and 5ive, it was a box straight from my childhood! (Not to mention the fact that I’d also found my Game Boy Colour minutes earlier…)

Girl Bands Then & Now: What Makes Them So Popular?

Following on from my last post It’s All About The Nineties (which happens to be my latest fave post that I’ve written – mainly because I love being nostalgic and stuff), I decided to write about some of the music that I’ve caught myself listening to since then. And what have I been listening to lately I hear you ask? GIRL BANDS.

I’m talking about ladies that get together, decide that they can make decent music if they were a group and BOOM! They get a record deal and become worldwide sensations, inspiring women everywhere to grab their hairbrushes and sing into them (they also become posters for men to put on their wall and dream about).

And just who are these women? Which bands am I referring to? Why are girl bands so great? Carry on reading if you really want to know (and of course you’ll want to know – girl bands aren’t like Marmite, you purely love them. No hatred for girl bands exists in this world). So let’s look at some of my fave girl bands throughout the ages (basically the past 20 years as they’re the only ages I’ve been present in!)
