If summer is blockbuster season for the film industry, the fall is definitely when the music industry brings out it’s big guns. Most of the year’s deemed as the ‘fourth quarter.’ Last year, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Lady GaGa, and Mary J. Blige all released albums in the 4th quarter, and this year looks to be just as star packed. Here are our 10 most anticipated albums for the Fall.
10. Taylor Swift Speak Now
Country-pop chaunteuse Taylor Swift has been through a lot this past year. She was big before, but the Kanye West drama catapulted her to new levels of fame. Her new album will tackle all that she’s been through in her usual catchy style.
09. Marsha Ambrosius Late Night & Early Morning
Marsha Ambrosius’ solo debut has been a long time coming. The former Floetry singer has been waiting on her solo break for a while, with her stint on Dr. Dre’s Aftermath going nowhere. She’s finally has a home on J Records, and has struck gold with her single ‘I Hope She Cheats On You (With A Basketball Player)’ Marsha had made her name writing sensual , emotionally raw r&b jams, so this album is sure to live up to it’s title and be the perfect soundtrack for late nights and early mornings.
08. Jazmine Sullivan Love Me Back
In terms of raw talent, Jazmine Sullivan is up there with any other R&B artist of this generation. Her first album, 2008’s Fearless, displayed her range with songs like ‘Need U Bad,’ ‘Bust Your Windows’ and ‘In Love With Another Man.’ For the follow up, Love Me Back, Jazmine seems to be going for a more classic, 90s R&B-inspired sound. ‘Holding You Down (Goin’ In Circles)’ and the newly released second single ’10 Seconds’ are two of the year’s best songs, and with her vocal and songwriting talent the album is sure to be a classic. Love Me Back hits stores November 2.
