While Lamar is still riding the tidal wave from his 2017 blockbuster album, DAMN, he is continuing to wrestle the music industry with his latest project, “Black Panther The Album”, created along side Marvel’s Black Panther movie. The album is a nontraditional sound track representing an entire cultural movement, with continuous astronomical sales predicted.

A$AP Rocky
A follow up album from Pretty Flack Jodye has been in the works since the release of At.Long.Last.A$AP in 2015. Rocky hinted that the album will include more experimental sounds, quoting, “I prefer to experiment and have my crowd grow with me and to reach new crowds.”

Jimi Hendrix
Yes, you are reading right. On march 9, Both Sides of the Sky, was set to be released. The album included 10 never before heard songs held onto by the Hendrix Estate. This is the third album to be released from an archive- post mortem.

Post Malone
After a collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign, “Psycho”, dropped February 21 followed by a new line of corresponding merchandise, fans began conspiracizing about what the new art could mean. Could the highly anticipated Beerbongs and Bentleys be finally ready to drop, or is this work teasing the idea of a whole new album?

Paul McCartney
This old time Rock n Roller hasn’t hinted much about a release date, but did share that he was putting the finishing touches on a new project featuring a song spot lighting president Donald Trump. McCartney  has been making money moves for since he was still rocking with the Beatles, sharing work in 2008, and recently topping the charts with collaborations featuring Kanye West and Rihanna.

Artic Monkeys
After going MIA at the tail end of summer 2014, the group mysteriously posted a set of international tour dates without announcing an album release. This has fans on the edge of their seats with anticipation for the alternative rock band’s sixth album.

Nicki Minaj
After a three year wait following her latest album The Pinkprint, Minaj trolled the internet with a title for her fourth studio album called Pick My Fruit Out along with a list of 10 whole tracks. Although that was proven fake news, the artist confirmed that an album is on its way, promising it to be her best work yet.

Travis Scott
Releasing the long awaited Astroworld this year, Scott is committed to being heard. He’s been spotted with PARTYNEXTDOOR and Tame Tmpala in the studio. He teased the album with the popular single “Butterfly Effect” and is releasing a collaboration album with Migos’s Quavo as well.

Ariana Grande
After the occurrence of the horrific Manchester terrorist attack during Grande’s Dangerous Woman tour, the artist felt that she had her work cut out for her when it came to her fourth album release. Her goal for this album is to find her own iconic song, and is attempting so by writing or co-writing each track.
