2015 has been one of the most entertaining year in music. From Adele making history with her hit single Hello, to the Twitter beef between Drake and Meek Mill.
Most say Meek Mill took the biggest L of the year while others were in awe over how unbothered Drake was. He then serenaded the world with “Hotline Bling” and the best dance moves of 2015 to ever grace the waves of the internet.
I mean we would love to go on but we will stop there. It's Drake, he can do no wrong right?
While there was a lot of music to appreciate in 2015, there are a handful of artists we are looking forward to hearing from. So let’s take a look at what artist we hope to drop an album this year:
1. Frank Ocean
Since his debut album Channel Orange in 2012 the world yearns to hear more art from Frank Ocean. Songs like “Thinking About You” and “Sweet Life” are just those songs with captivating lyrics and a sweet melody that takes fans to another world parallel to their own. Bring back those sweet melodies and soul awakening lyrics and just drop some bangerz Ocean!
2. Kanye West
While 2015 kept him busy becoming a father for the second time with Saint West along with the release of his clothing line, many fans are probably wondering if Kanye plans on dropping more heat. Although Mr. West has a knack for reeking havoc on a lot of things, music is by far his greatest gift where he never goes wrong.
Since his last album Yeezus in 2013, Kanye West is in the works of making his next album and has changed the title of his album from So Help Me God to SWISH. No matter the name of his next album we are ready to hear some Good music.
3. Janelle Monae
Even though The Electric Lady released in 2013 its not Janelle Monae’s debut album, it’s just the album that caught the world's attention and brought her undeniable talent to light.
Since 2013 the world is yet to see what she has been cooking up in the studio. With her new label Wondaland Records, she signed the Nigerian native Jidenna who released his first single “Classic Man” in 2015.
The world is sitting on the edge of their seats the see what other eclectic music she has to offer.
4. Sam Smith
After his studio debut album release in 2014, Sam Smith released his single "Stay With Me" that captured the attention of everyone around the world. Fans quickly compared Sam as the male version of Adele having fans wishing for a collaboration between the two. Sam speaks to your soul and recognizes the pain.
Somehow he knows the right words to take us back to any given moment in love, in pain and memories we wish we could never let go.
5. Missy Elliott
Ending 2015 on a promising note, Missy Elliot released 'WTF' by letting her fans know that her creative take on music is still alive and her fans accepted with open arms. While battling an Autoimmune thyroid disease since 2008, fans thought all was lost in hearing music again from Missy Elliot.
Here we are in 2015 hearing new music and hoping for an album from her in 2016.
6. Jhene Aiko
If you never considered getting your butt ate, it wasn't until you heard the phrase from Jhene Aiko. She had women all over the world say “but you gotta eat the booty like groceries” from her verse on Omarion's "Post To Be" featuring Chris Brown. Jhene is considered by some the female version of Drake.
Have you listened to her music?
7. Bryson Tiller
The Louisville native has literally took the last few months of 2015 by storm with his debut single “Don’t” that dropped on his album, T R A P S O U L. There's not one person that is not in awe of him and his incredible lyrics and has filled the void he has for the past few months.
He has been cosigned by Drake and Timbaland and has lyrically and literally found his way to not only be the ladies choice, but the men's choice as well.
We are certain that 2016 will be his year. Now let's just sit back and see.
Aside from the people on this list, who else do you expect to drop a project or who do you want to hear from? Is there anyone on this list who's album you think will flop?
