Albums I'm Looking Forward To: 5/24/19

While not as exciting as last week, there are still plenty of albums to look forward to this week. Check out the list I created below!

1. Flamagra by Flying Lotus

This album is at the TOP of my listening list this Friday. It has been almost five years since we last heard a Flying Lotus project. He has quietly been in the studio, such as producing a few songs for Kendrick Lamar, but never produced a full project since You're Dead! There are also a lot of great features on the track list, such as Anderson .Paak, Shabazz Palaces, and more! Check out one of the singles from the album!

2. Escape From New York by Beast Coast

Beast Coast is a newly formed hip hop group. It consists of Flatbush Zombies, Joey Bada$$, a few other members from Pro Era, and more. They have dropped some promising singles so far, and it makes sense since Beast Coast is made up of some of the best rappers there are right now. This will definitely be an album you won't want to miss. Check out my favorite single from them right now, Left Hand.

3. Hybrid by Collie Buddz

I am a huge fan of reggae, and since summer is around the corner, the reggae albums are about to start rolling out! From a Twitter post back in 2018, Collie Buddz said he is going to be self-producing this album, so it will be interesting to see how this album turns out. I was never a huge fan of Collie Buddz, but like I said, it's summer and I'm excited for new reggae music! Check out his single, Legal Now.


Are you looking forward to any of these albums? What albums are you excited for this weekend? Let me know in the comments section!

The boy band who swept a lot of people off their feet back in 2017 are back with their fifth studio album, GINGER. Brockhampton is a boy band originally formed in San Marcos, Texas. The group eventually moved to Los Angeles and grew in popularity.

The first track off the album is NO HALO. Compared to all of the other Brockhampton albums, this is a mellow opener. It starts off with a guitar and high pitched vocals. Throughout the track, members of the group talk about their imperfections and some of the issues they have faced. The title of the track, NO HALO, probably refers to the fact that they aren't perfect people. Merlyn stood out most on this track since …

Album Review: Happiness Begins by Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers are a pop/rock band that formed back in 2005. After nearly a 6 year hiatus, they have released their fifth studio album, Happiness Begins.

Sucker was the first single released for the album. After hearing this song, I was actually excited about the Jonas Brothers reuniting. I was never a fan of them when I was in middle school and high school, but I knew I had to give this new album a listen. I actually really enjoyed the first track and it hooked me into the album right away. It's a high energy pop song, something that will definitely gather some air time on the radio. This is a typical love song, where this person loves someone else greatly, and they would do anything for them. The Jonas Brothers might be referring to their wives since all three of them are married.

Cool was the second single released for the album. This song wasn't one of my favorite when first released, but it is growing on me. It opens up with a slow acoustic guitar, and then a drum beat…

Bandana is a collaborative project between American rapper Freddie Gibbs and American producer Madlib. This is their second collaboration together, with PiƱata being the first project back in 2014. Judging by the album, these two artists work really well together and have dropped a solid album this year.

The first track is Obrigado and it is an introduction track. The first part is a small clip from Freddie Gibb's uncle. The second part took me some time to actually realize the speaker was speaking English. Obrigado is Portuguese for "thank you." The title of the track could also be a play on words of the Japanese word…
