The fall music season is officially here and is ready to take us anywhere the wind blows. New music releases have been landing steadily every Friday as we trek into the holiday season. Season 3 of Insecure recently concluded, but Issa Rae managed to leave us with a collection of dope music featured throughout the season of the show. Then last week, Lil Wayne dropped his long-awaited and highly anticipated Tha Carter V album to rave reviews that will surely nab him the #1 Billboard spot this coming week. We also have new submissions from R&B queens Tamia and Marsha Ambrosius with Passions Like Fire and Nyla, respectively. Estelle takes us on a reggae-filled journey to London with Lover’s Rock and the sounds of dancehall, soca, and afrobeat.
These and more are included in “Fall Frequencies”: 15 recently released albums and EP’s that will help you steer through the autumn leaves and cold fronts. Just click the album art and take a listen to find your new fave.
