Three Albums I'm Looking Forward To: 5/10/19

A lot of people ask me, "What is your favorite day of the week?" I always answer with, "Friday, of course!" This may surprise a lot of people because as an educator, I still have to work on Fridays. However, Friday is the main day where musical artists release albums. That alone, to me, is a great reason to LOVE Fridays! To kick it off, here are some albums I am looking forward to this weekend!

1. Confessions of a Dangerous Mind by Logic

Logic has been on a hot streak the past two years. He released two mixtapes in 2018 (Bobby Tarantino II and YSIV) and is set to release his second project of 2019 this Friday. While I wasn't too hype on his first single, Keanu Reeves, his other two singles made up for it. This will mark Logic's sixth album. This also means that we are getting an album, not a mixtape, so there will be a different vibe to it compared to the last two mixtapes he released. However, this will definitely be a release you do NOT want to miss!

2. Here Comes The Cowboy by Mac DeMarco
Ever since I heard Salad Days during my sophomore year of college, I fell in love with Mac DeMarco. I had to listen to anything and everything that had to do with Mac DeMarco. What made it even better? He was a weird and quirky guy, just like me. This new album will definitely be more of a slow, darker album. I assume it will be similar to This Old Dog.

3. Beauty Marks by Ciara

Ciara was the epitome of mid 2000s pop music. While her later albums haven't charted as well, this is still something to look forward to. She has been featured on songs from other artists every now and then to where she still has some credibility. Her feature on Bow Wow's Like You will always be a bop, fight me.

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…

Album Review: ZUU by Denzel Curry

Denzel Curry is an American singer, rapper, and songwriter. ZUU was released on May 31, 2019 and marks Denzel Curry's fourth studio album. This album pays homage to his roots in Miami, Florida.

The first track of the album is the title track, ZUU. Zuu is a nickname for Carol City, which is a suburb in Miami. Denzel Curry talks about how he made a lot of money when he was in Miami, but now that he made some money, it is time for him to move out of the "Zuu". Even though he moved out, he's still giving credit to his home town Carol City, and the Miami-Dade area as a whole. The end of the track hints towards the next track, RICKY.

RICKY is the second track off the album and the first single Denzel Curry dropped for this project. This song actually pays tribute to Curry's father. This song takes us back to his childhood. His father, Ricky, would tell Denzel Curry stories from his childhood, as well as advice. Basically, his dad helped him grow up in Carol City and to…
