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 …

Of course, Travis Scott was going to release something before the end of the year. JACKBOYS is a hip hop collective consisting of Travis Scott, Sheck Wes, and Don Toliver. Despite the collective only having three members, the EP JACKBOYS has some guest features from Quavo, Offset, and many more.

To start off the album, we have a remix of Travis Scott's HIGHEST IN THE ROOM, which was released earlier this year. If you haven't heard the original, it has a trap beat with a high-pitched vocalist in the background. The remix keeps the chorus and his first verse, but then we have the addition of Rosalía and Lil Baby.…

Bandana is a collaborative project between American rapper Freddie Gibbs and American producer Madlib. This is their second collaboration together, with Piñata 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…
