We can all agree that even in the midst of a global pandemic, it has been a good enough year for the movie and music scene. With so much time on our hands, it has become easier to get into watching and listening to different genres of movies and music. Whether educational, action-packed or comedies, taking time out to unwind is very important. Here at NGRCampus, we have got you covered with the best picks for new movies and music like;
