Ed Sheeran releases official video for "Happier" from his record-breaking, 14 million-selling third studio album. The video directed by Emil Nava (Eminem, Rihanna), stars Ed's lookalike puppet who first debuted in the official video for "Sing."

More than 20 years since the inception of NSYNC, the boy band received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The event marked the first time all five members, Justin Timberlake, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, Lance Bass and JC Chasez have reunited in five years.

It's been six years since Christina Aguilera has released an album; now the diva is back with Liberation out June 15 on RCA. She shared the first track, "Accelerate" which features Ty Dolla $ign and 2 Chainz and was co-produced by Kanye West, who is also credited as composer and lyricist.

Charlie Puth premiered "The Way I Am," from his sophomore album, Voicenotes out May 11th on Atlantic Records. The Multi-GRAMMY nominated singer/songwriter/producer also tweeted "TWIA is a very important song to me, and I hope you not only enjoy it, but realize when you listen to it that you and I aren't that different. Everyone in this world goes through the same things, thinks the same thoughts, but experiences them in one-of-a kind ways."

Florence + the Machine announced their fourth studio album, High as Hope, out June 29 on Republic Records and debuted the music video for the first single "Hunger." The band also announced they'll play six intimate tour dates in the US and the UK later this month, and will be opening for The Rolling Stones in London on May 25.

Alice in Chains has released  "The One You Know" the first-single off forthcoming album due later this year. The band is currently on their summer tour.
