The Fall Off by J.Cole
J.Cole is regarded as one of the most talented rappers in the game today and with the positive reception of his previous album, The Off-Season, we can’t wait to hear his next one. In 2021, Moe Dee announced that his upcoming album, titled The Fall Off, will release sometime this year and it was deemed to be the blueprint for his retirement.
Although we haven’t got a definitive date on when his upcoming 7th studio album will come out, fans are already hyped to hear the tracks in it. This is because fans already know what they can expect from J.Cole after hearing his impressive discography throughout his career.
Dawn FM by The Weeknd
Even though 2020 wasn’t a good year because of the onset of the pandemic, it still gave listeners one of the best albums in recent memory which was After Hours. This year, the singer-songwriter plans to introduce a new era in the form of his 5th studio album, Dawn FM.
The album has long been teased throughout 2021 with one of the most notable ones being a high-profile collaboration with Post Malone called One Right Now. The single quickly made its way to charts around the world and it was a taste of what’s to come on Dawn FM this year.
Earthling by Eddie Vedder
Pearl Jam frontman, Eddie Vedder is looking to make a splash on his first album as a solo act called Earthling. The veteran vocalist is no stranger to creating hits as was evident during his time with the world-famous rock band.
However, a huge reason why this album is much anticipated is because of the different names attached to it with the likes of Elton John, Chad Smith, Ringo Star and more. Collaborations between these musical geniuses are sure to make wonderful songs.
The Tipping Point by Tears for Fears
Legendary pop band, Tears for Fears is set to return on the big stage 17 years after their last album release. Some experts are even speculating that this album could be the best one that they have created because they’re going back to their roots that involves acoustic guitars.
Early tracks that were released such as The Tipping Point and No Small Thing sounded like the old Tears for Fears that people know and love and it’s full of heart. The same vibe is what listeners are expecting when this album is released on February 25th.
