Brace yourselves because the amount of AMAZING music that is set to come out this year is INSANE! Here’s what’s coming up in 2016:
Rihanna – ANTI (release TBA)
Fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of Rihanna’s eighth studio album for months now. But it looks like 2016 is finally the year for a Rihanna comeback! The pop singer claims everything will be “worth the wait” but I guess well have wait and see the night of the Grammy Award’s when she is expected to be performing some new ANTI music.
Kanye West – SWISH (February 11th)
Yeezus gave us the first tease of his new album when he released the song “Facts” on New Year’s Day. Get ready because there is a whole lot more of new music to come from Kanye in 2016! According to the Hip Hop star’s wife, Kim Kardashian, he will be releasing a new song every Friday until SWISH’s release.
Drake – Views From the 6 (release TBA)
Drizzy’s new album was initially expected to be released in January, but it looks like his fans are going to have to wait just a little bit longer. February has been announced as the new release date set for this highly anticipated project.
Sia – This Is Acting (January 29th)
The new year also means tons of new music from singer/songwriter Sia. Fans should be really excited about this album because most of the songs were initially written for other artists like Adele and Rihanna who didn’t use the songs. To get a feel for what’s to come, check out her first single off the album, “Alive.”
Charlie Puth – Nine Track Mind (January 29th)
Breakout star Charlie Puth had an epic 2015. And it looks like he is continuing the momentum into the New Year with the release of his debut album “Nine Track Mind” and nominations for a handful of Grammy’s and even a Golden Globe!
Lady Gaga (release TBA)
Mother Monster announced in 2014 that she had begun working on her fifth studio album. So far we don’t have a name or even an exact date but what we do know is that she’s been working with producers RedOne, DJ White Shadow, and Giorgio Moroder.
Katy Perry (release TBA)
Rumor has it that Katy Perry will be releasing a new album out in 2016! No word yet on a name or release date but we know that something big is definitely in the works because her manager confirmed it.
