Yesterday, the girls of Fifth Harmony made a shocking revelation on Twitter, posting a photo of their upcoming debut album Reflection with this fascinating little behind-the-scenes tidbit included: “We almost named ourselves CANDL (our initials).”
Shine bright like a CANDL!
It’s a bit of a silly name for the BO$$es, but then again, it wouldn’t be the first time the X Factor USA alum went through a name change, having started out in the competition as LYLAS, then briefly 1432 before settling down into their latest version, Fifth Harmony.

It’s no surprise within the industry now (thanks for spilling the beans, Diplo!) that the No Doubt frontwoman has been hard at work recording a follow-up to her last solo outing, The Sweet Escape.
But apparently, the creativity is flowing so much in the studio, she’s knocking out a new No Doubt record too.
In an interview on the red carpet with MTV News during New York Fashion Week, the gorgeous pop icon confirmed that she was back in the studio with longtime collaborator Pharrell (they’ve done “Hollaback Girl” and “Wind It Up” together in the past, among others), and that they’d been working on both records. “At this point I’m thinking about both, I can do both…and it’s just an amazing time; so many opportunities,” she explained.

Part of Betty Who’s charm is that whether her cuts end of being singles or not, they still come packing the same radio-worthy pop wallop. You can never accuse this girl of chucking out filler material. Case in point: “Runaways.” Give it a listen below. More »

Ahead of the release of his jazzy new single “I’m Not The Only One,” as well as his upcoming In The Lonely Hour Tour 2015 in the UK, the soul-pop crooner’s just been joined by rapper A$AP Rocky for a bitter new version of the song — and Rocky’s got Queen Yoncé on the brain.
“Dine at Ciprianis like Beyoncé, they’re getting by or they’re getting bodied/So Sasha Fierce, a whole lot of tears,” the NYC rapper cooly declares, tackling his troubles with the ladies. Later on, he hits harder for an even more depressing verse: “Jack Daniels for breakfast, a cap of Valium mixed with antidepressants/My momma said that we need love/Till I found out life’s a bitch with no no prenup,” he bitterly raps. And by the time Sam comes in with his aching crooning for the final time, it’s all over — this one’s a total angry tears fest. The remix will be available on iTunes at midnight.
