Kick off the weekend with Charlie Puth – One Call Away

Newcomer Charlie Puth first gained popularity through YouTube, and received international recognition for writing and singing on the Wiz Khalifa song “See You Again“, taken from the Furious 7 soundtrack. The song became a huge commercial success, topping the charts in 26 countries.

Puth’s debut single,  One Call Away is the official follow-up to the amazing  Meghan Trainor-assistedMarvin Gaye” from debut album “Nine Track Mind“, which he will release in stores on November 6th via Atlantic Records.  MTV called it an instantly catchy tune you should listen to it below.

The clip shows Charlie Puth trying (really hard) to let the girl he’s fallen at first sight for know that he, and not that brainless jock she’s dating, is the Mr. Right for her.

Lastly, the New Jersey singer shared the 12 track list for Nine Track Mind. Check it out below.

  1. One Call Away
  2. As You Are (feat. Shy Carter)
  3. Marvin Gaye (feat. Meghan Trainor)
  4. My Gospel
  5. Know Your Name
  6. Losing My Mind
  7. Up All Night
  8. Left Right Left
  9. Then There’s You
  10. Suffer
  11. Hard
  12. Some Type Of Love

I love this song…. Charlie Puth is an up and coming artist.. since we have different music taste people will always have a lot to say… for the love of good music keep the comments coming…

National Book Week 2015 highlights

National Book Week has compiled the highlights of activities from the #GOINGPLACES bus tour which travelled throughout four of South Africa’s provinces (Gauteng, Limpopo, KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape).

National Book Week


This campaign has been celebrated in seven provinces, aiming to mitigate the findings in the 2007 study that revealed that only 14% of South Africans read books and over half of South African households (51%) do not have a single leisure reading book.

Now in its sixth year, the country’s most successful annual national reading campaign has mobilised some of the best storytellers, musicians, and ambassadors such as Lupi Ngcayisa, Stoan Seate, Refiloe Mpakanyane, Jena Dover, Pearl Thusi and Aaron Moloisi to name a few to get Mzansi travelling again through books. Along with the mascot, Funda Bala, the ambassadors will continue to support and bring the world of books to people.
