The second week in July brings us another great week in music! Keep reading to find some of the albums that are being released this weekend.

1. K.R.I.T. IZ HERE by Big K.R.I.T.
After hearing his 2017 album, 4eva Is a Mighty Long Time, I was a fan. It was an amazing album that showcased his strengths and had a lot of great features as well. Big K.R.I.T. released a compilation album earlier in 2019 that was comprised of the three EPs that he released in 2018, but he's ready to come out with his fourth studio album this weekend. This album is supposed to be a sequel to his 2010 mixtape, K.R.I.T. Wuz Here, and is going to continue to go off of his southern hip-hop style. Check out one of the singles, K.R.I.T. Here.

2. Weather by Tycho
I don't know exactly how Tycho gained so much popularity from his second studio album, Dive, but it definitely turned me on to electronic and ambient music. After listening to that album, I dove into a whole new world of electronic music and I can't thank Tycho enough for it. Dive and Awake will forever be Tycho classics, and in my opinion, electronic classics, but I am excited to see where his album Weather will take us. Tycho, or Scott Hansen, will be the driving force behind the album, but has several features from Saint Sinner. While this is going to be different than the trilogy albums, he will still use some of the same elements he has used in his previous work. Check out the single Easy below!

3. Temperature's Rise by Arizonan Summer
I was a little hesitant about this one since I really don't know anything about this band, but there has been a lot of promotion behind this album. According to the information that is available, Arizonan Summer is an upcoming band in the Scottsdale, Arizona area. The title of the album, Temperature's Rise is a suitable title for the horrendous summers here in Phoenix, but there's more to the album than just that. From the promotional tracks I have heard on Facebook ads, I believe that this guy has a promising future. Be on the lookout for this album this weekend!

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…
