: ALBUMS HYPE : SUMMER '16

ALBUMS HYPE / Summer '16

 

The summer has proven to be very fruitful in terms of music deliverance. New albums kept popping up every few days which really made my summer holidays goooood.

Below I will list the albums that came out between August and the beginning of September 2016, and which are constantly on repeat on my devices. The scores given are under my own preference, not to be taken under serious consideration.

Enjoy!

 

Young Thug, JEFFERY

 

Release date: August 26

Score: 5/5

Thoughts: I can't stop listening to this album, on and on, all day. We should all watch out for Young Thug (or Jeffery). 

Fave tracks: Wyclef Jean; Floyd Mayweather; Future Swag; RiRi; Guwop

 
 

PARTYNEXTDOOR, P3

Release date: August 12

Score: 5/5

Thoughts: Very sensual album. I spent my holiday listening to it & it took me places. Perfect for late night vibin.

Fave tracks: High Hopes; Come and See Me; 1942; Only U

 

TORY LANEZ, I TOLD YOU

Release date: August 19

Score: 5/5

Thoughts: "Guns and Roses" will probably become one of my favourite love songs of all time. Tory Lanez really knows how to bring that sweet sweet lovin'.

Fave tracks: Guns and Roses; Friends With Benefits; Luv; Say It

 

GUCCI MANE, EVERYBODY LOOKING

Release date: July 22

Score: 5/5

Thoughts: Gucci came out of jail and smashed everything. I love every track he features on. Some serious club warming with this one.

Fave tracks: P***y Print; Waybach; Pop MusicGuwop Home; Gucci Please

 

FRANK OCEAN, BLONDE

Release date: August 20

Score: 5/5

Thoughts: Frank completed his deal with Def Jam by releasing "Endless", then went on to release his own album, under his own label "Boys Don't Cry" - "Blonde". This one will become number 1 on Billboard, while "Endless" doesn't qualify as it's an album in (just) one long track. Pretty smart with this one, Frank. Good to have you back.

Fave tracks: Pink + White; Nikes; Ivy; Self Control

 

RAE SREMMURD, SREMMLIFE 2

Release date: August 12

Score: 3/5

Thoughts: The duo knows how to make bangers. Much like their previous album, I like 2-3 songs off it, and that's it. But I do play them on repeat. & check out that video tho. 

Fave tracks: Look Alive; Black Beatles

 

ISAIAH RASHAD, THE SUN'S TIRADE

Release date: September 2

Score: 4/5

Thoughts: Isaiah is truly an audio-visual artist who hasn't received the appreciation he deserves...yet. 

Fave tracks: Free Lunch; Wat's Wrong; Tity and Dolla

 

TRAVIS SCOTT, BIRDS IN THE TRAP SING MCKNIGHT

Release date: September 2

Score: 4/5

Thoughts: Due to the hype around this upcoming album I think I expected more. It's more chilled down than his previous ones, still I immediately got hooked on it.

Fave tracks: guidance; first take; pick up the phone
