Maroon 5 is a music rock pop band that began in the early 2000’s. The group began making waves almost as soon as the group was created. This move was headed by their single “harder to breathe”. The group has kept growing stronger, although one or two persons have been replaced, the group has stayed strong producing beautiful music for all the world to enjoy. Friday the 13th is a recording of a live performance by the group (live album). Very little is known about what inspired the name of the album, some might be of the opinion that it is related to the day the album was recorded, which was on the 13th day of May, 2005. Or probably, it is something deeper, maybe something more personal. The album name was not referenced in the lyrics of the song so as to give us a little clue about the motive behind the name. Anyone that is willing to solve this puzzle will have to go to the artistes themselves. The album consists of a total of fourteen songs. The pop album is characterized by deeply insightful lyrics, classic beats and excellent vocals by Adam Levine, Jesse Carmicheal and Ryan Dusick. The songs are awesome but they do not really stick to the minds of listeners, the lyrics are extremely catchy but they just seem to have over stayed their welcome in the minds of men. The songs that really thrilled me from the album are "Through With You", "Wasted Years" and "She Will Be Loved". Contrary to the whole rock pop album, the songs are actually calm and soothing to the nerves.
Tiwa Savage stopped singing for sometimes and came back with the album R.E.D and I can say that nothing beats a ground entrance. The R.E.D album was released when she signed a deal with Mavin Records on 19 December 2015, and featured popular music stars and producers like Don Jazzy, Olamide, Dr SID, Iceberg Slim, 2face Idibia, D'Prince, Busy Signal and Reekado Banks. The album was produced by Don Jazzy, alongside Baby Fresh, Altims, Spellz and P2J. My best songs in Tiwa Savage’s album is “My Darlin'” and “African Waist” which were released as promo singles from the album. The album creation brought out a sassy, sophisticated and wild Tiwa Savage which made more people talk about her. Nigerians most especially criticized the video talking about morals and how she needs to be a role model to young girls. In my own opinion Tiwa Savage brought a new vibe to afrobeat, she wore outfits that exposed her body which gave her a more flattering look. R.E.D. is the second studio album by Tiwa Savage.
In recent time we have seen a lot of examples were a celebrity had started his or her journey from YouTube and later become a famous personality, one of those is Charlie Puth.

We all remember Zayn Malik from the famous Irish band One direction, I personally remember him from the song ‘Up All Night’ were we can see young ZAYN performing in a concert with his band members and this song was the part of the first album of One direction. Everything was going great, until in 2015 Zayn decided to quit his band after the “On the road again tour”, there were many questions raised about his exit, rumors were spreading all around that he had a ego clash with his band mates, but Zayn made it clear that his exit has nothing to do with his band mates, they all were very supportive about his decision, it was just because of to much of stress he left and that’s what he mentioned in a Facebook statement . So, in that same year he decided to go all alone with his production, so he began with launching demo version of “I won’t mind” ,unfortunately this was leaked by his producer Naughty Boy. Malik also worked with grime rappers Krept and Konan, but his material was never released after he parted away from Naughty Boy. As people says that “experience matters” and that exactly what help Malik to get recognition as he had worked with such big names that helped him to gain more urban support.
After wowing the world of music with the release of her second studio album, My Everything, Ariana Grande seems to have taken a tentative step into the adulthood of the music industry – despite being only four years into her career as a singer. Covering a duration of almost 40 minutes, Dangerous Woman conveys an interesting message about the ‘dangerous’ pop talent – she’s still searching for the right sound. Songs like “Love Me Harder”, “Problem”, “Bang Bang” (all singles from her previous album) left people wondering if she was going to continue with these styles of music – or take a dare to switch styles. However, Dangerous Woman comes with a mixture of Pop and Dance-pop styles, indicating that she’s still trying to figure out where she would pitch her ‘tent’ – although she seem to be a master at combining various styles. The album has ‘generally’ been viewed as an unforced hurdle by Ariana Grande into becoming her own vocalist and performer. Certified Platinum by the RIAA, Dangerous Woman is a 15 track long album featuring guest appearances from Future, Nicki Minaj and the legendary Lil Wayne. Being a follow up to her sophomore album, Dangerous Woman has influences of dance-pop, disco, trap and reggae – with pop and R&B being its primary genre. However, this album was the first of Ariana’s to not hit the number-one spot in the US Billboard 200, although it went on to earn about 180,000 units in its first week of release. It was also earned a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album.
