January is typically a slow month for new music releases; however, there were some albums that have been released recently that are worth checking out. Last month, with the help of a friend, I fell into the rabbit hole when I was introduced to an artist, Brent Faiyaz. His latest EP Lost was released back in October and definitely earns a listen for his unique sound. Anderson Paak has also been on heavy rotation with his latest album Oxnard.
Today marks the release of New Orleans’ own DAWN’S brand new album new breed. Last week we saw Atlanta rapper Future’s new album Future Hndrxx Presents: The WIZRD as well as British singer-songwriter James Blake’s Assume Form. In the world of R&B, Elijah Blake recently released Bijoux 23, and Trey Songz dropped a surprise album 11 and mixtape 28 on his birthday that you should give a listen. Check out fresh pop releases from Alessia Cara, Rita Ora and Zayn. If you are into hip-hop, be sure to listen to Meek Mill’s Championships, Gucci Mane’s Evil Genius, and City Girls Girl Code.
