Top 3 Albums Set for January Release

So many new artists emerged in 2017, the scene seemed a bit crowded. However, last year was a big year in music with releases from artists such as Eminem, Taylor Swift, Drake, Mary J. Blige, and many more. The mutation of the music industry literally happened overnight...we had singles and mix-tapes dropping literally in the middle of the night leaving well-known artists having to come up with new ways to reemerge to remain relevant; all while the newbies utilized the virtual world to their advantage with apps like, YouTube and YouNow among others to capitalize off their fanbases.

What will the new year bring us? With speculation around album releases from Jennifer Hudson, Mariah Carey, Tinashe, and others, here's a list of some definite releases for 2018.

When she left Fifth Harmony to make her stand as a solo artist, there were doubts that she'd be able to even share the same spotlight as her Harmony sisters. However, with Billboard hits like Havana that actually hit #1 & others like Bad Things (ft. Machine Gun Kelly) & I Know What You Did Last Summer as well as others that hit within the top 20 on the Billboard charts, she's definitely turned the doubters into fans.

With her debut self-titled album coming out January 12, 2018, more Billboard hits are sure to follow. Her debut album will also feature pre-released hits like "Never Be the Same" & "Real Friends". We'll have the links for you to purchase that album as soon as it drops so STAY TUNED!

If you don't know the name, you've definitely heard the artist...from the Number 1 hit song "See You Again" with Wiz Khalifa as somewhat of a tribute song for Paul Walker at the end of Furious 7. Puth is set to release his new album, Voicenotes on January 19th.

With hits like his feature "See You Again", his original "Attention", "We Don't Talk Anymore" with Selena Gomez, and his original "One Call Away" this is an artist a lot of fans are awaiting a new album from. "See You Again" spent 52 weeks on the Billboard chart and his upcoming album is bound to have hits that peak at #1 & more than likely spend even more time on the chart.

Stay tuned to the blog because we'll have that link available for you to purchase his album as soon as it drops.

Oh-M-Gee!! Who remembers Fall Out Boy? Fall Out Boy hasn't had a Billboard hit since 2015 and peaked at #9 with their first Billboard hit "Dance, Dance" in 2006.

Fall Out Boy hit the scene in the early 2000's and were a big hit among the alternative pop-rock fans. I was one of them. And I, as well as others, are beyond excited for this long awaited album release titled M A N I A, which ALSO drops January 19th.

With their last album being released 3 years ago --Make America Psycho Again-- this group has been slacking; their music has a nostalgic feeling because it takes you back to other artists like Blink 182 & Red Hot Chili Peppers & No Doubt. Popular back then isn't always popular now, but Fall Out Boy has a vast enough fan base that could put this album at the number 1 spot. And We. Are. Ready! Yes!

And their single "Hold Me Tight or Don't" from M A N I A is climbing the charts as I want that song? Check the links below to watch the video & make that purchase. You can pre-order this album below as well.
