We don't think Directioners are going to be very happy about this...
Still, any reason to hear new music is cool with us!
Naughty Boy shared the new song I Won't Mind on Twitter and Soundcloud on Monday night, saying:

Festival season is officially upon us, y'all!!!
In less than a month, hundred of thousands of youths will be flocking to the Empire Polo Club in Indio California for three days of musical bliss at Coachella!
But if you're not able to make it to this particular hipster hangout, don't worry! There are literally HUNDREDS of other festivals you can attend this year, and so far they're nabbing some pretty impressive headliners!
Earlier this morning, Summerfest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin announced their lineup with Kendrick Lamar, Keith Urban, Ed Sheeran, Florida Georgia Line, Kings of Leon, Linkin Park, and Zac Brown Band listed as the Marcus Amphitheater Headliners!
He's earning rave reviews for his latest album — but breaking records ALREADY?
Kendrick Lamar's album To Pimp A Butterfly is being hailed by music critics as modern day masterpiece, and that critical success is backed up by a lot of commercial success already!
The rapper's album broke a record for Spotify as it was streamed by
The title To Pimp A Butterfly seems to be a play on the title of Harper Lee's novel To Kill A Mockingbird, the 1960 classic about racial tension and injustice in America.
Based on the cover art, that definitely seems to be the focus for Kendrick as well.
The rapper wrote:
Kendrick Lamar's new track is pure fire!
He just dropped The Blacker The Berry and wow, it's fantastic.
The song just comes so hard, with that amazing beat just carrying the whole tune — but it's Kendrick's lyrics that make this track something special.
He speaks openly about the racial tensions America has currently been experiencing.
Kendrick even drops a line for Trayvon Martin… directly by name!
He raps about the hypocrisy he sees every day and makes some pretty bold claims… we absolutely recommend listening to this track.
Check out the video (below) and hear Kendrick's hot fire!
It was SUCH an intense night at the Grammys!
Sam Smith practically walked away with all of the Grammys he was nominated for — maybe they should've named this year's show Sam Smith's Grammys and everyone else who was nominated.
Totally kidding, but the Stay With Me singer is now up there with all of the greatest artists who took home all of the awards!
Congrats to all of the winners and those who were nominated!
Ch-ch-check out the complete winners list from the Grammys (below)!!
This whole thing is kinda bizarre…
Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran are constantly on-again off-again, but from the looks of this video, Breezy wants to keep her around forever!
The singer released his new music video for Autumn Leaves, off his 2014 album X, and in it, Chris tries to win the love of a geisha… aka Karrueche. And though he's dressed as a sword-wielding warrior, he doesn't fight for her affection (smart move!). Instead, he just silently stalks her.
Oh, and Kendrick Lamar is on the song, but isn't in the video. In his place are two other bikini-clad women, and Chris lip-synching Kendrick's lyrics.
This is probably a video we'll forget shortly after watching, but definitely check it out at least once to try and figure out what's going on!
Race is an issue that this needs to be talked about, and MTV is trying to get the conversation started.
This Martin Luther King Jr. Day, for the first time in the network's history, they'll be airing all of their programs in black and white from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
The goal is jar audiences enough that they'll begin having, what MTV is calling "The Talk – candid, confident and 'color brave' conversations on race and bias." It's all a part of their Look Different anti-bias campaign.
Throughout the day, monologues from people like Kendrick Lamar, Common, Big Sean, Ava DuVernay, David Oyelowo, Penn Badgley, Jordin Sparks, Pete Wentz, Sen. Rand Paul, Rep. John Lewis, and Sen. Cory Booker will air, to help get people to discuss our differences.
We have a first look at Penn Badgley's clip for you (above)!
MTV's President, Stephen Friedman, talked about this, saying
