Ed Sheeran officially released his sophomore album, X, today! And it doesn't come as a surprise that a few hours after it came out, the British singer's album soared to the top of the iTunes chart. Want to listen to his entire album ASAP? You can, thanks to Spotify. We're warning you, though, X is going to give you all the feels.

Are the cute guys of One Direction and artist Pharrell Williams collaborating soon? Well we're hoping! After a photo of Liam Payne and Pharrell surfaced on the Internet a couple of months ago, we've had our fingers crossed hoping for that collab to happen. In a chat with the "Happy" hitmaker, he confirmed that he would be happy to do one with the 1D cuties, "Why not? Of course. But I suppose they already have five voices—I don't know if they need an extra one." Of course they need one more voice if that comes from you, Pharell! Make it happen, you guys!


Speaking of Pharrell, one of last year's most successful singers, Foxes, is going on tour in Europe with him. In case you didn't know who Foxes is, she's the voice behind the LSS-inducing and Grammy-winning track "Clarity," which she did with German DJ/producer Zedd. We just wish they come to the Philippines, too. In the mean time, you can listen to "Clarity" below.

Our beloved TV vampire Ian Somerhalder is out to save the world. The Vampire Diaries star will be speaking before the US congress for his charity, the Ian Somerhalder Foundation. He posted a video on his Instagram asking for his fans' thoughts and this snapshot of him asking for their well-wishes. "You give me so much strength," he said in the caption, "you inspire me to do more, not sleep and forge the future with you for us all. Wish me luck! Please!"

Icona Pop just revealed their latest track! Titled "Get Lost," the Swedish duo announced their song's release through a series of videos on Instagram. Listen to the entire song below, in time for their Manila concert on Thursday happening at the Raven Boutique Club, Bonifacio Global City.

It's a good day for fans of Teen King Daniel Padilla and Teen Queen Kathryn Bernardo! The launch of Kathryn: A Candy Fan Magazine was announced today, and a new snapshot from the movie adaptation of She's Dating the Gangster came out too! We've compiled all the photos from the film for you in this gallery. You can thank us later.
