The year is coming to an end, and 2016 was an epic year for anticipated album releases. With the releases of Anti, Lemonade, Twenty88, Coloring Book, and Blonde, there is definitely a new standard in music that artists will have to reach.
Anticipation is built for an album release when an artist who has been out of the game for a while suddenly teases a new project, or when two of the most ill artists in the game team up on a project.
Fans know what’s going to be hot and what not to waste their time on. It’s like a sixth sense, and if fans find themselves swindled, you wont stop hearing about it.
After trolling through twitter, per usual, I’ve put together a list of most anticipated, upcoming album releases.
Check out who everyone is frantically waiting to hear new music from.
