It's around the corner... time to get steamy and emotional.


Ed Sheeran - Shape Of You

Ed Sheeran vanished for an ENTIRE year.  We had no trace of him on social media, in the news... not even via his bestie Taylor Swift.  This guy was AWOL and his fans were seriously starting to freak out.

And then, last Friday, our collective prayers were answered.  Ed Sheeran returned to us and dropped two brand new songs "Shape of You" and "Castle on the Hill."   He also announced his third studio album, Divide.

Both songs broke Spotify's one day add record and soared onto the Billboard Charts.

Shape of you is extremely sultry and is definitely the makeout song for 2017.  Muah!



Shawn Mendes - Mercy

Shawn has a lot to say about this single.  It basically ran him emotionally raw as he wrote and sang it, even doing a beautiful acoustic cover of this song at an empty Madison Square Garden. 

Interestingly enough about "Mercy," Shawn admits this song isn't really about a relationship with a girl.  It's more about his relationship... with his career??

Yeah, he says he wrote it while on tour and doing multiple appearances and shows.  He basically got the idea stuck in his head that his career needed to give him some mercy so he could rest a bit and recharge.   He said during a Front & Center interview;

“That’s the crazy nature of being someone who creates music, and I think that song kind of expresses all that emotion and anger behind loving something so much.”
