In yet another incredible acoustic guitar cover, John Grimes of Jedward has tackled a Harry Styles’ song, ‘Cherry’. The original, which was co-written by Styles and his frequent collaborator, Tyler Johnson, along with Jeff Bhasker, Kid Tycoon, and Sammy Witte, does not include the song title in the lyrics. In John’s version however, he has added a bridge which amends this.
Lockdown seems to be agreeing with Jedward, who are using the period to stimulate their creativity while they are in isolation in Los Angeles. For the second time this week, John has released a video of himself singing and playing guitar, and also for the second time, it’s a song by a former One Direction member – this time ‘Falling’, by Harry Styles, which was released earlier this year.
Almost exactly four years ago to the day we introduced readers to Kelsy Karter, who had run away to Los Angeles from her homeland of Australia to make a name for herself in music.

After recently featuring her new single ‘Velvet Heart’, Beth was lucky enough to catch up with Rothwell, who is determined to make her unique sound heard in 2018.

Are One Direction heading the wrong way? If their recent single release, the title track from their third album, “Midnight Memories” is any indication, this might be the case. The song was released on March 9, and according to the Official Charts Company on March 16, peaked at only Number 39 in the UK Top 100 Singles Chart. This is their lowest chart entry to date.
Japan’s café scene has always been one step ahead of the rest of the world’s, with its myriad of cat cafés, dog cafés and anime cafés lining the streets of some quarters of Tokyo. But, according to reports from the Daily Star, the newest kid about to arrive on the café block could be the most exciting yet. Especially if you’re a fan of a certain cheeky British and Irish five piece pop sensation.
