Epic Records are in a celebratory mood.
The L.A Reid helmed label have enjoyed chart success this year with hits from the likes of Fifth Harmony, Meghan Trainor, and A Great Big World – whose ‘Say Something’ featuring Christina Aguilera has sold a whopping four million copies since its release in February.
To round the 2014 on a high, many of the imprint’s banner acts have come together for a new Holiday EP titled ‘I’ll Be Home For Christmas’.
Set for release on November 24th, the project will notably see Fifth Harmony cover a major Mariah Carey classic.

Unfortunately, thanks to moves made by she and her creative team, the rapper finds herself looking more foolish than holy after they released a lyric video for her new single ‘Only‘, filling itto the brim with questionable imagery some critics claim was inspired by Nazi propaganda.
Worsened by the fact that the video was released on the 76th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the clip’s release has earned the chart-topper a new batch of critics all waiting to weigh in on her latest move, even after she claimed the visual had nothing to do with Nazism and apologised to those who believe it does.
The name of one of her new critics? The political commentator that is Glenn Beck…
