Music is very dear to us and we are in no way genre prejudice, although pop and hip hop are ultimate faves! So we decided to come up with a list for everyone for Abstract Lookout!
Here are 5 albums that we personally are looking forward to hearing this year!
1. Full Frequency by Sean Paul (February 18)
This is is sixth-studio album from Sean Paul and although he is Jamaican, he has managed to add a few top contenders in the hip-hop world (namely Juicy J, 2Chainz & Nicki Minaj) but has still managed to keep his the dancehall in the mix. Previously scheduled to be released in Novemeber of 2013, Sean Paul has released a few singles – Other Side of Love, Entertainment” which features 2Chainz & Juicy J as well as the remix featuring Nicki Minaj, Turn It Up & Want Dem All !
Oh, What A Life
2. Oh, What A Life by American Authors (March 4)
This will be American Author’s debut album, having already released their singles Believer & Best Day Of My Life (a favourite of ours)! We have a feeling this will be a good one.
3. Cheek to Cheek by Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga (March 18)
You might have remembered the two doing a collaboration for The Lady Is a Tramp! This time, they will be doing an entire album together; one that will sure be a hair-raiser.
4. Head or Heart by Christina Perri (April 1)
One may not consider her mainstream, at least not at the calibre of the Beyonces and Rihannas but once we heard Jar of Hearts, she had us sold! She has a great voice and her music just soothes the soul. She has already released her first single from the album, titled Human! Go have a listen! And she even has Ed Sheeran featured!!!
5. Last but not least – Adele
Now a date nor a name hasnot been confirmed but Ms. Adele did say she was working on her third studio album. According to MTV UK, Adele is currently in London working on the tracks. An inside source stated,
Adele is currently in a recording studio in London and it’s in lock-down mode for the next few weeks. Four tracks are finished in terms of writing and she’s now laying down preliminary vocals with backing music and singers. The rest of the record will be done in LA. The feel is very much Adele going back to her roots, with some modern jazz and a couple of classic old songs.
We are already excited for this!
Now, you may not be a fan of these artistes and that’s completely OK! On the other hand, you could be the President of their fan clubs and that works too! Let us know which ones you can’t wait to hear or maybe you have a few to share that would have been on your list! What are you on the LOOKOUT for?
P.S. There might just be a Part II as more announcements are made from other artistes on their upcoming projects.
