At this point One Direction have been broken up long enough that we’re beginning to see what each member of the once-dominant boy band is bringing to the table in his solo career. Zayn Malik fashioned himself as a mini-Weeknd of sorts, exploring 50 shades of sexy pop-R&B and coming away with some decent … More »
Although I’d argue their catalog boasts a handful of jams and that Adam Levine has various winsome collaborations under his belt, Maroon 5 have long been deserving objects of scorn among music fans of discerning taste.
