We have come to the first week in July. Just when you thought there weren't going to be a lot of big projects dropping this Friday, several artists have recently announced they are going to drop an album this weekend. Here are some of the albums I'm looking forward to this weekend.

1. Revenge of the Dreamers III by Dreamville
Revenge of the Dreamers III is a follow up to the 2015 album, Revenge of the Dreamers II. This record includes a lot of people who are signed to Dreamville Records, such as J. Cole and Bas who had an eventful 2018. Over 100 people were invited to the recording session for this album, whether they accepted the invitation or not is questionable, but it might have a lot to offer. I'm a bit skeptical when it comes to collaborative albums with a large amount of artists since everyone has their own style of rapping/singing. However, since they are already on their third album, fans still keep flocking to it. Check out one of the singles to their album below!

2. ERYS by Jaden Smith
After a long awaited return, Jaden Smith is back with a new album. It was rumored to be released in May or June, but it has been pushed back to July. He released a three track pack titled "ERYS IS COMING" back in April to hype up the album. His father, Will Smith, also made a surprise appearance at his Coachella set. If you didn't notice, ERYS is just SYRE spelled backwards, which was the name of his debut album. There are a lot of amazing features planned for this album, with his sister, Willow Smith, being one of them.

3. Flamingo by Olympia 
I found out about Olympia while browsing upcoming albums on the internet. Olympia, or Olivia Bartley, is an Australian pop singer and songwriter. Flamingo will be her second studio album and will have twelve different tracks. I checked out her single Hounds and it looks promising. Check out the single below!

What albums are you looking forward to this weekend? Let me know down in the comments section!

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…
