What a talented young lady.

Alessia Cara is one rising star in the music industry and her achievements are slowly piling up for what seems to be like the runway to a real successful career that will leave a legacy.

At a young age of 20, Alessia has already had 2 number one singles on the US pop charts, a song on a Disney animated film and performed on Saturday Night Live as a musical guest.

Her schedule certainly keeps this singer-songwriter busy so we have no idea how on earth she found time to perfect these impersonations she did of some of the biggest artists in the world on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

The Wheel of Musical Impressions made some interesting combinations that night. Check out Alessia's Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj and Lorde impersonations here. They are seriously so spot on that it scares us.

PREACH IT SISTA!!!

Disney's very own Sofia Carson recently released her brand new single Back to Beautiful and we are in love with the song and her amazing vocals on it for so many reasons.

The song starts off with the heartbreaking truth of the realities of this world we live in, "They say you're not good enough, you're not brave enough/ You should cover up your body/ Tell me, watch my weight/ Gotta paint my face/ Or else no one's gonna want me."

But it doesn't stop there. The honest chorus addresses that wars only start more wars and it is just a vicious cycle of putting people down to get to the top but it will eventually not get anyone anywhere. And the only way to stop this is to get back to what it really means to be beautiful because beauty is not skin-deep but it is the compassion and love that we find within ourselves.

We are glad that songs like this are written to confront the harsh realities of the human condition in a way that gets communicated to the masses. So we will be here waiting for Sofia to release more inspirational songs and in the meantime try to get everyone Back to Beautiful.

Oh my, just leave the poor guy alone.

The X Factor UK 2012 winner James Arthur recently made a visit to the Capital FM radio studio to do some press. During the break, James happened to be chatting with radio DJ Roman Kemp about Ed Sheeran's latest single Shape of You and decided to give it a go at covering a little snippet of the song.

The 28-year-old singer sang his rendition of the tune from the pre-chorus to the end of the chorus with the help of his guitar of course. However, the comment section exploded with many nasty comments about his take on the song. Many people thought that Ed sang the song way better and others even commented that James should just stop covering songs and stay in his lane.

Wow, we like to be nice here. So while we think that one can be entitled to their own opinion, there should be certain factors that we should consider before blurting out whatever comes to mind. Firstly, the song is originally Ed's so obviously it was written to suit his voice. Secondly, James did not even rehearse this cover, everything was impromptu.

Basically, what we are trying to say is that we should stop comparing the two singers just because they are both British singer-songwriters. They are unique in their own ways so just enjoy the music man.

Ed can seriously do us no wrong.

During radio press at Capital FM, Ed Sheeran was being put on the spot by a fan who has two loves - him and the TV sitcom The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air and was hoping that Ed could combine the two to essentially make her life complete by singing the theme song.

A little hesitant at first, Ed responded with a reluctant "I don't know..." before proceeding to pick up his guitar and serenading the radio crew with probably the best cover of The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air anyone has ever heard.

Our favourite British singer-songwriter was having such a jam and we could not be happier that that particular fan decided to ask for such a favour. Ed can basically sing the entire phonebook or the dictionary and it'll be the number one hit on all the music charts. We are betting our money on it.

A replacement for Camila?

As of 19 December of last year, former Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello officially left her girl group days behind to pursue a solo career without being bounded by a legal contract.

It has been slightly over a month since her departure and Fifth Harmony's loyal fan base also known as the Harmonizers are still struggling to reconcile with the fact that there are only four members in Fifth Harmony.

To correct this irony, Ellen DeGeneres posted a photoshopped picture of herself and the girls in their brand new profile picture for 2017. This hilarious attempt at trying to poke fun at such a tense situation started the trending hashtag #BeThe5thChallenege where others were doing likewise but just with different people who they think can fit the mold of the fifth member of the multi-platinum selling girl group.

Let's take a look at some of the best nominees:

 

1. Ellen DeGeneres 

The lady herself who started it all... now she needs to invite the girls for a proper sit-down interview!

 

2. Lady Gaga

They sure look good in Gaga's iconic pink hat. This group of vocalists would surely be one powerhouse band!!!

 

3. Miley Cyrus

This would probably never happen in a million years but the photoshop skills here are the bomb.com!!!

 

4. Ariana Grande

They are all around the same age, with amazing voices, they are also very family-oriented... they would get along fine and make a real super group that the world has never seen.

 

5. Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran fell in love with these girls since the early days of their music career... and if the dress does not qualify him to be a member of the group, can we at least get a collaboration please?

 

6. The Kardashians and Jenners

Keeping up with the Harmonies?

 

7. Mahogany Lox

They all went on tour together and had the best time of their lives. And who says there can ever be enough sass in a group?

 

8. The Incredibles

They will definitely be a force to be reckoned with, and the idea that their concerts may potentially have superpowers involved... one can only dream.

 

9. The High School Musical Cast

Their concerts will be EPIC musicals!!! And who doesn't like spontaneously breaking out into song and dance?

 

10. Elmo

The girls have appeared on this furry friend's TV show, Sesame Street. Shouldn't he do the girls a favour and be the fifth member of their group?

*****

Who do you think should be the fifth member of Fifth Harmony? Or they are perfect just as a four-piece group? Do let us know by leaving us a tweet!

Old is the new new.

Welcome back to our article series: New Music Mondays! Yes, every New Music Monday is all about starting off the week with brand new jams fresh from the music factory because who doesn't like to hear a new tune after you have accidentally murdered the replay buttons to your favourite tracks from the previous week?

So let the replay buttons of Ed Sheeran's Shape Of You and Castle On The Hill take a nice little rest and see what the world of music has to offer to you this week - the good, the bad and everything new, we'll break it down specially for you.

 

1. Birds n Bars by Wiley

This is the first track on Wiley's eleventh album, Godfather. This song starts of with Birds n Bars but nicely transitions to its second part Bring Them All. Although Bring Them All is actually the second track of the album, it was placed at the end of this track instead. Overall, this song is getting four out of five stars from us because it has some sickkkk beats.

 

2. All About Me by Syd

Syd collaborated with her band mate Steve Lacy to create the dark and smooth beats of this track. Like its beats, All About Me's lyrics seem really dark and kinda shady. This song is basically like a dark and shady downgraded version of Meghan Trainor's Me Too. It's getting two stars from us. #SorryNotSorry

 

3. The Heat (I Wanna Dance With Somebody) by Ralph Felix and SDJM

The idea of mixing Whitney Houston's iconic 80s hit with contemporary house beats is simply genius. We are absolutely speechless after hearing this collaboration with a modern twist. It's just so beautiful, please take a listen to this track that we are giving 100/100.

The name practically says it all.

DNCE has taken over the music charts by storm with each single they have released and their self-titled debut LP DNCE is a body of work of 14 songs that basically takes a loud hailer and yells in your ear that the band will not be going anywhere else anytime soon.

Back in October of 2015, the American dance-rock band has definitely left their mark in the music industry with their first EP SWAAY which produced two super successful singles Cake by the Ocean and Toothbrush. But now, the four piece group has surely made a name for themselves and makes it is clear that they are a force to be reckoned with.

Their self-titled studio album includes three tracks from their EP plus eleven new songs for the world to hear and know for themselves that the band is not just a one-trick pony. The MTV Video Music Award's Best New Artist for 2016 can perform not just dance-orientated songs but they show another side to them by gifting us with slower jams like Truthfully and Almost.

If you want people to remember your name, having a self-titled album is not enough. You need a song named after you as well. DNCE was very cleverly written. The lyrics of the song not only included the band's name but also gave an insight to the inspiration behind their name while giving it a little story line.

The multi-talented frontman of DNCE, Joe Jonas, not only has an incredible high range that can be heard in Zoom but he also co-wrote every track on the standard edition of the album. This album consists of songs like Toothbrush, Good Day and Pay My Rent that talk about some of life's situations but they were given very unique concepts that were written in an unusual and interesting way.

So if you ever need a playlist for whatever party you're at, don't even bother having a customised playlist. All you need to do is to bump the entire DNCE album to have a blast!

It's basically a Sharpay and Gabriella duet.

Ashley Tisdale gave us another video from her music sessions series on her YouTube channel. She has definitely been reading the comments left by fans because she finally invited her long-time BFF Vanessa Hudgens to cover Ex's & Oh's by Elle King with her.

The two friends have never performed a song with just the both of them together even during their time on High School Musical. It sure took them long enough to finally join forces to cover this fun tune that was arranged by Ashley's husband, Christopher French.

It is just so nice to know that these best friends have kept in touch with each other even after so many years since the HSM era ended. We hope that this is not the end of their musical collaborations but that they will do something like that again in the near future and maybe invite the rest of the High School Musical cast to join them!

Real talk translated into five beautiful songs.

If you don't already know who Grace VanderWaal is, it's about time you get to know her. Grace is an American singer-songwriter who won the eleventh season of America's Got Talent at just 12 years old. After her big win, the young star signed a record deal with Columbia Records and released her first EP titled Perfectly Imperfect in December of 2016.

Not only does Grace have a very unique voice that was described as "enduringly croaky" by USA Today, she performs all her songs with the ukulele. Grace first learnt how to play the piano around 4 years of age but quit soon after. The I Don't Know My Name singer attributed her ability to play the ukulele to her impatient nature. She explained that she decided to learn the ukulele because it only takes about 10 minutes to pick up unlike the piano.

Perfectly Imperfect consists of all four songs that Grace performed throughout her time on America's Got Talent plus an additional original song titled Gossip Girl. The song talks about the realities of certain girls you meet in school who you think are your friends but they end up saying nasty things about you to everyone else. Clay seems like a nice response to that because it addresses how one should deal with bullies.

The song that made her Howie Mandel's golden buzzer act on America's Got Talent I Don't Know My Name was inspired by twenty one pilots' House of Gold because they have exactly the same chords. Grace was just playing that song and somehow wrote the beautiful song that we all know today.

Grace's older sister, Olivia, has always been a huge supporter of her younger sister since day one. And there is probably no better way to thank someone that important in your life than to write a song for her. Beautiful Thing has such heartfelt and honest lyrics that there is absolutely no way you can't fall in love with this inseparable pair of siblings.

Unfortunately, Grace hasn't released a music video but we have been blessed with the lyric videos of all five songs. So if you haven't heard any of her songs yet, please just take 17 minutes to listen to the whole EP that talks about some of the most relatable topics in life. You will not regret it.

 

1. I Don't Know My Name

 

2. Clay

 

3. Light The Sky

 

4. Beautiful Thing

 

5. Gossip Girl

Now that is one big music party.

Ally Brooke from Fifth Harmony, Sydney Sierota from Echosmith and Tori Kelly have been really good friends for quite some time now.

Despite their own busy schedules, these three friends always find a way to make time for each other. Whether it is meeting up for Halloween or jamming out in the studio or even visiting the happiest place on earth, they make it happen.

These ladies are probably very similar in many ways but the most obvious common dominator is that they are all SLAYING the music industry with their incredible talent. And so we are keeping our fingers crossed that they will one day make beautiful music together and release it to the rest of the world.

Can you imagine what an epic collaboration that would be with the rest of Fifth Harmony and Echosmith? We can only hope.
