#REVIEW: CHRISTINA PERRI – “A VERY MERRY PERRI CHRISTMAS”
Just perfect. Relative-Newcomer Christina Perri releases a stunning six-track EP right in-time for the Holidays, titled A Very Merry Perri Christmas via Warner Music Canada.

Original Track Something About Christmas is absolutely stunning, possessing the beauty of another era captured in ...

I mean, we've already heard what she has to offered in her Collaboration with Owl City in Good Time and we liked it and need I mention Billboard Magazine's 2012 Song of the Summer, Call Me Maybe?

#REVIEW: PINK – “THE TRUTH ABOUT LOVE”
What would a P!nk Album be without the f*cking Expletives? Fans including myself have long awaited the three-time GRAMMY Winner's return to Music after focusing on being a Mother for a bit, but how almost four years have gone by since 2008's Funhouse, I have no clue.
