2017 has already been a great year for music! Many artists such as The Migos, Future, Kehlani, Big Sean, Jidenna, Syd, and Sampha have released albums. As I was traveling this weekend, these are the albums I had in rotation, so it is safe to say these are my current favorites.
Who isn’t a Migos fan right now? Bad and Boujee has become an anthem and we all secretly wanted them to perform at the SuperBowl. Although some may believe this album is just hype, I can listen to every song, no skips. My favorite songs are “Get Right Witcha”, “T-Shirt”, and “Call Casting”. Add Culture to your playlist NOW!
I have loved Kehlani for what seems like forever. She does not hold back so I know personally I feel a connection to her and her music. I love the self-love pieces on the album from Reyna Biddy which reassures you while listening that we all have felt this way at least once. I love the entire piece but my favorite song is “Distraction”.
Big Sean- I Decided.
With songs like “Bounce Back” and “Moves”, I could not wait for this album to be released. The skits and narrator make this album personable and relatable. It’s like a voice in the back of your head guiding you through the songs and Big Sean’s growth and progression as an artist. “Halfway Off The Balcony” is my favorite song from the album.
Chance the Rapper- Coloring Book
While Coloring Book is actually a mixtape and was released last year, it is an amazing piece! Chance the Rapper is on top right now! Chance took home three Grammy awards this year after winning for Best New Artist, Best Rap Album, and Best Rap Performance. My favorite songs are “Blessings”, “Juke Jam”, “How Great” and of course, “No Problem”.
