Albums I'm Looking Forward To: 6/21/19

Hello readers! It's Wednesday and you know what that means... A list of albums I'm excited for this weekend! We have a great selection of albums so keep on reading. I also want to apologize because Two Door Cinema Club delayed their album release, so they will be releasing their new album this Friday!

1. 7 by Lil Nas X

The Old Town Road guy? Yeah, you heard that right. After his claim to fame with the infamous, Old Town Road track, he is finally dropping an EP this Friday. With a mysterious track list, it will be interesting to see if he is going to continue with his country rap style, or just completely go with country or rap. Who knows, this EP might have him doing an elementary tour this upcoming school season. Just kidding. If you don't know what I'm talking about, he performed Old Town Road at an elementary school a few weeks back. Check out one of the singles from his upcoming EP, Old Town Road (Remix).


2. Help Us Stranger by The Raconteurs
 Just like I mentioned the last few weeks, this is another band that has been on my watch list, but I still haven't had the chance to listen to them. Even though they haven't released an album in over 10 years, one of their members, Jack White, has been keeping busy with other projects. Check out one of the singles from their upcoming album, Help Me Stranger.

3. Broke & Happy by Vic Sage
While hip hop isn't that huge in the midwest, Vic Sage definitely has something to offer for us. Coming from Omaha, Nebraska and having a killer EP, Long Days Longer Nights, Vic Sage is coming out with a new project this Friday! It's awesome to hear more people from the midwest are getting recognition in the music world! Listen to one of the singles off the new project, Thousand.

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 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…
