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.
