After years of waiting for a new record from her, finally, we got to hear a new song from our dear Adele. After the super blockbuster LP “21”, Adele is set for a new LP which was also simply entitled as “25”. I bet many of you know why she named her album with that number. By the way, this new song “Hello” was already released and is set to start in the charts with a bang. I checked the iTunes charts and it is number one in almost all countries. It seemed people really longed for this record, even many celebrities did. Checked it on Twitter and you will see. “Hello” is a ballad about heartbreak but lighter than it used to in “21” songs. It is a tearjerker if you will figure its lyrics out. Adele’s voice is always been awesome as she showcased on “Hello”. It may not be on par with “Rolling in the Deep” but it is still a very nice song and waiting for Adele is worth it.

Justin Bieber- Sorry
After the worldwide smash “What Do You Mean?”, Justin came back with this new EDM pop tune. “Sorry” which is about being apologetic and asking for forgiveness may be directed towards ex, Selena Gomez or fans for his mistakes done. Through this song, it is obvious that Justin took a different direction compared to “Journals”. The song though is like a duplicate of “What Do You Mean?” with less impact. “Mean” is a great song but Sorry is just like the poor sequel.

One Direction- Perfect
This song was announced as the second single for the lads’ anticipated first album as quartet “Made in the A.M.”. Although, a promotional song “Infinity” was released prior. The song was originally a pop/rock ballad song but I can’t feel its impact compared to their power ballads such as “Story of My Life” or “You and I”. With the remix version, it sounds even better.
