2020 might have sucked, but at least Ariana Grande dropped a new album. We can all finally stop begrudgingly blasting Thank U, Next. The ponytailed popstar has released her sixth studio album this week, and it’s her raunchiest yet.
Drake announced he’s dropping his next album too. The Canadian rapper’s Certified Lover Boy is due to be released in January 2021. But not to worry, there’s a host of new music to hold us over until then. After postponing his release in respect to the #ENDSARS movement, we can finally get a taste of the latest from Nigeria’s Wizkid, who dropped his new album last Friday.
And if you’re looking to hear from region’s best artists, we’ve also got you covered. Saudi Arabian pop-chill maven Mishaal finally served up his legion of fans with a full EP. To keep up with it all, these are the albums you need to listen to this week.
