From the Publisher

The story behind the fascinating Irish twins who are singing with Vanilla Ice and dancing with Lady Gaga   Fully authorized, this book takes an in-depth look at the two fascinating lives that constitute the newest pop phenomenon. Author Jennifer O'Brien has had exclusive and unlimited access to Jedward for more than a year, both on the road and backstage at X Factor. She has interviewed Louis Walsh, Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole, and Dannii Minogue to find out what they really think of the Dublin duo. In 2009, two young lads from Ireland burst their way into the music business. When twins John and Edward Grimes appeared on X Factor, not everyone thought that they had what it took to make it in the industry. But with their sheer exuberance, determination, and fearlessness, they carved themselves a place in the affections of the TV-watching public of the UK. They even got dancing lessons from Lady Gaga before their Scottish tour, on which they cover her hit "Poker Face," and have performed with Vanilla Ice. Love them or loathe them, Jedward are here to stay.

Kero Kero Bonito's Bonito Generation was not only the cheeriest pop record of 2016 but also one of the year's best. Spend 10 minutes with the trio's hyper-caffeinated, but no less thoughtful electro-pop and your day is automatically brighter. Every week in May, the U.K. band will release a remix of its music done by other artists, starting today with Frankie Cosmos. Frontperson Greta Kline's straightforward indie-pop songs are similarly short, sweet and a little bit sad, and her band's take on the song "Fish Bowl" is more of a charming cover than a remix. They lean on the "oh oh" chorus while

Kevin Morby Announces New Album, Shares The Elegiac Love Letter 'Come To Me Now'

Singer Kevin Morby is back with a followup to last year's much beloved full-length Singing Saw. The new album is called City Music and is due out June 16 on Dead Oceans. Morby has also shared the record's first single and lyric video, the moody and transfixing "Come To Me Now." "Ain't got no friend in a world so big," Morby sings to a montage of archival video footage taken from various press conferences, court hearings and cityscapes.

Songs We Love: Mon Laferte, 'Amárrame (Feat. Juanes)'

"Despacito" isn't the only catchy song of the summer that has people singing in Spanish. The Mexico City-based Chilean vocalist Mon Laferte has teamed up with Colombian superstar Juanes for the steamy single "Amárrame," whose video has lured nearly 60 million views on YouTube. "Amárrame" means "tie me up," and, appropriately enough, this sinfully seductive song is an edgy siren call. Even if you don't understand its provocative lyrics, the chemistry between Laferte's and Juanes' alluring vocals, combined with a slinky cumbia bass line, makes this song hard to resist. It's perhaps not surprisin
