YouTube Musicians

YouTube is the platform with something for everybody.

thank u next: Ariana’s all grown up

Ariana Grande’s fifth studio album thank u, next was released on 8 February this year, just in time for Valentine’s Day.

BROCKHAMPTON: the same again

The genre-defying, Honda-swerving, harbingers of musical mayhem have returned, with more explosive aggression, soulful introspection and turn-up slappers. Despite a larger gap between albums than fans are accustomed to, it doesn’t seem like they’ve done much to change their musical formula; instead more work has gone into perfecting their sound and vision.
