Take Me Home is the second studio album by English-Irish boy band One Direction, released globally in November 2012 by Syco Records and Columbia Records (Sony Music Entertainment). After extensive promotional appearances and touring in North America and Oceania in support of their debut album, One Direction began recording the album in May 2012.

The album received generally favourable reviews from contemporary music critics. While some commended the album's composition as catchy, infectious and carefree, others felt that the album is a rushed product that lacks cohesion. The album became a major commercial success. Take Me Home topped the charts in more than thirty-five countries including AustraliaCanadaUnited Kingdom, and the United States, sold over one million copies worldwide in its first week of release, and received platinum certifications in several countries.

The lead single, "Live While We're Young", released on 28 September 2012, peaked inside the top ten in almost every country it charted and recorded the highest one-week opening sales figure for a song by a non-US artist. Its second single, "Little Things", released on 11 November 2012, became the group's second number-one hit in the United Kingdom.

Red is the fourth studio album by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. It was released on October 22, 2012 through Big Machine Records, as the follow-up to her commercially successful 2010 album Speak Now.[10] It was announced through Swift's live webchat on August 13, 2012, in which she revealed the album title, album cover, as well as answered fan questions. Four promotional singles were released in the month leading up to the album release, three of which debuted inside the top ten of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100

The album's lead single, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" was a worldwide commercial success, topping the iTunes charts all over the world and sold 623,000 copies in the first week, becoming Swift's first ever Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper after vaulting from 72 to number one and stayed atop for three weeks. The second single, "Begin Again" was released in October 1. "I Knew You Were Trouble" was released as the third official single (promoted, like "Begin Again," from promotional single status) on November 27.

Red has also spawned three other promotional singles, all of them reached top 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Red has been mostly acclaimed by music critics, who praised Swift's versatility as a musician and enjoyed her experiments with new music genres. Red sold 1,208,000 copies in its first week in the U.S, debuting at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, the second highest debut for a female artist, behind only Oops!... I Did It Again by Britney Spears.[11] Red is also Swift's first chart-topper in the U.K., and also topped the album charts in Australia, Canada, Ireland and New Zealand. 

Hope you get it...till then, that is how
