What Love Is Made Of by Katy B Can we call this a jam? It is def­i­nitely a jam. A ravey jam. Like Mar­malade with a glo­stick stuck in it. Poor analo­gies aside, it’s a slick ef­fort from Katy. The hook of “I can stay like this for days/ look­ing at your beau­ti­ful face” slides into a sassy “let me know what love is made of”. There are synths, there’s a kind of echoey wind bit in the mid­dle eight, and in the mid­dle of it all is Katy B, know­ing ex­actly what she wants.

I don’t think Tay­lor Swift would be into Katy’s new track though. She told Bill­board: “I love that bal­lads be­came huge hits this year and that un­ex­pected songs and artists got lots of air­play. Ed Sheeran, The Lu­m­i­neers and Fun are some of my favourites right now, and they’ve all had big hits with songs that have sub­stance and real in­stru­ments. I like it!” She con­tin­ued, “I don’t like to feel like I’m in a club when I’m in my car and I turn on the ra­dio. Any­thing that ceases to be a song and just sounds like house mu­sic kind of stresses me out.”

Rochelle Satur­days is preggo no longer! Saturbaby num­ber 2 (lest you have for­got­ten Aoife Belle, born to Una Satur­days) has ar­rived healthy and happy. A girl, named Alaia-Mai Humes. Marvin tweeted: “This morn­ing we wel­comed our baby girl Alaia-Mai Humes. Mum is do­ing great & baby is amaz­ing! We are both over­joyed! Thanks for your love x.” No pres­sure on Frankie Satur­days to choose an “A” name then. We know one very good name that be­gins with A, if she’s in­ter­ested.

Look who’s back on the scene – the Jonas Broth­ers! And they’re tak­ing some su­per-cred­i­ble in­flu­ences on board too. Kevin Jonas told Dig­i­tal Spy: “Frank Ocean was an in­flu­ence. There were so many peo­ple that in­flu­enced this next al­bum, just more the di­rec­tion and the tone. We took our time. We all did in­di­vid­ual things for a very long time, and we needed to.” Does this mean no more Burn­ing Up?
