Justin Bieber’s ‘Cold Water’ with Major Lazer Debuts at #2 on Billboard’s Hot 100

Posted on 1 min read 91 views

Looks like Justin Bieber has another hit on his hands!

After Major Lazer‘s new single Cold Water featuring Justin Bieber dropped on July 22nd, the song has made it’s debut on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the #2 spot after raking in 169,000 downloads and 19.6 million streams in the U.S. within its first week.

After its release, the song reached #1 on the iTunes charts in 68 countries and has already been certified Gold in Australia.

While Justin lent his vocals to the new hit track, British singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran is also credited as one of the writers of the song with Benny Blanco.

When speaking of how the song came together, Major Lazer says:

“I had been trying to link with Benny Blanco and Ed Sheeran for years to find the right song we could all work on together and the moment I heard this one, I knew that it was the one. The timing was perfect and when we approached Justin, he was also in love with the song we all had written. I thought it would be interesting to incorporate another vocal and seeing she’s family, I reached out to MØ and we decided to try our best to make something fresh and interesting as Major Lazer.”

Ed Sheeran On One Direction Split: “If you’re unhappy it’s best to go your separate ways”

Posted on 2 min read 70 views

In preparation for his hosting duties at this weekend’s Much Music Video Awards in Toronto, Canada, singer Ed Sheeran has opened up in a new interview on why he chooses to attend the MMVAs every year, along with what he’s got in store music-wise for future albums.

“It’s a lot like British award shows. You can have a drink or two. Most American award shows don’t serve alcohol and as a result are very dry.” Ed tells The National Post when asked why he enjoys the Canadian award show.

As for expecting to take home awards during award shows, “I know that, generally speaking, if they’re not in England I won’t win anything,” he says. “I don’t think because I’m hosting I’m going to start winning awards. If I win something I want it to be because I’ve earned it.”

Apart from his hosting duties, Ed has been busy writing new songs for his next album. He says, “Apart from this right now, I’m working a new album so I’m writing for me. I’ve given myself a year. I’ve written about 60 songs and 10 of them are really great.”

In addition, Ed also commented on the recent separation of One Direction after Zayn Malik left the group a couple of months ago.

When asked to comment, Ed says: “Let’s just say if you’re unhappy it’s best to go your separate ways.”

As for the rest of 1D, Ed adds, “Oh, they’ll be fine.”

Be sure to tune into the Much Music Video Awards on Sunday June 21 on Much!
