Justin Bieber releases music video recorded in Iceland
Justin Bieber is on a roll lately. After his single ‘What Do You Mean’ became a huge international success he decided to quickly follow up with the new track ‘Sorry’, that would have been another international number 1 if it wasn’t for Adele releasing her comeback on the same date. Justin is busy promoting the release of his new record, called Purpose, which will come out on the 13th of November. In the meantime he released a promo single called ‘I’ll Show You’, once again produced by Skrillex. The track is a bit more down tempo than the two previous ones, but it still got his recent electronic sound, that seems the dominant style on the upcoming album.

Little Mix go to prom in video for ‘Love Me Like You’
The girls of Little Mix recently released their brand new single ‘Love Me Lik You’, the second track taken from upcoming third album Get Weird. Perrie, Jade, Leigh-Anne and Jesy won the British X Factor in 2011 and have been going strong ever since. After hits like ‘Wings’, ‘DNA’, ‘Move’ and more recently ‘Black Magic’, they are ready for the next big one with the all kinds of brilliant ‘Love Me Like You’. It’s retro, undeniably catchy, contains an earth shattering pop chorus and even in the case you don’t want to like it (why wouldn’t you, but just imagine) it’s too damn irresistible.
