Shawn Mendes Debut Album Is Tops

Shawn Mendes Takes 'Handwritten' To No. 1 On The Billboard 200
Shawn Mendes wasn’t lying when he was singing “Something Big.” Surely he was anticipating his pending #1 album on the Billboard 200. That’s right Handwritten outperformed the competition to the tune of 119,000 units, most of which were album sales. Shawn Mendes, indeed is doing big things at a young age – he’s all of 16.

Mendes beat out more established artists who dropped new albums. Reba McEntire – a veteran by all means – settles for #3 with Love Somebody, moving a modest 62,000 units. As for Tyler the Creator, Cherry Bomb landed at #4, only producing 58,000 units. Interestingly...

Sia Forgets Her Wig

Sia Forgets Her Wig For Australian TV Performance, Wears Nightma
Sia had a major wardrobe malfunction this week- but not even close to the kind you're thinking of.

On Tuesday, the powerhouse Australian singer made an appearance on "Sunrise," an Australian morning show. She was all set to perform. Then, tragedy struck: Sia's signature blonde wig was nowhere to be found.

Who Took The Top Spot On The Billboard 200 This Week?

April 16th, 2015 11:56am EDT
‘Furious 7’ Soundtrack Bests All Time Low For Top Spot On The Bi
It was a good week to be a soundtrack, specifically the soundtrack to Furious 7. After ascending to the #2 spot on the Billboard 200 last week, Furious 7 sits atop the charts this week. The improvement in units from the previous week are quite substantial – 111,000 units this week versus 74,000 the previous week. Making Furious 7’s ascent on the Billboard 200 is what the soundtrack did on the Billboard Hot 100, namely “See You Again.”

“See You Again” did the unthinkable – killed Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ vibe. How so? “See You Again” stopped “Uptown Funk” from breaking a tie for th...

Review: Shawn Mendes Shows Great Potential On Debut Album ‘Handw
The power and the influence of video sharing sites is nothing short of incredible. Particularly for the youthful upstart musician, YouTube and Vine have done wonders for self-promotion. One of the latest benefactors is Canadian teen pop star Shawn Mendes. After dropping The Shawn Mendes EP back in 2014, the 16-year old singer/songwriter releases his major label debut, Handwritten.

“Life of the Party” plays true to the expected – solid, yet on the predictable side of things. The opener easily passes the marks – it’s a stand out contextually – even if it isn’t nearly as fun as the title ...
