Logic – YSIV
Logic does lots of different styles of rap and Young Sinatra ones happen to be my favourites, so when Logic once said in an interview that he isn’t doing Young Sinatra anymore, I was a bit disheartened.
Then, what do you know? He came out with YSIV and every song is powerful. My favourite is The Return. it almost made me jump and yell, YEAH! YOUNG SINATRA IS BACK!
Jorja Smith – Lost & Found
Jorja’s voice is so sultry and every song feels kinda like foreplay. Teenage Fantasy evoked so much nostalgia. As she sang, want it when we can’t have it, when we got it we don’t seem to want it… I thought of all my past teenage fantasies. It was a great album to have when I was having a hard time finding myself (still am) this year. Lost & Found is an appropriate title in that aspect.
Camila Cabello – Camila
I thought Sweetener would be my favourite pop album of the year. But Ariana came out with a lot of trap style tracks, which I’m not very fond of, so Camila ended up being my favourite of the year. Havana was a hit, but Real Friends is the hidden gem of the album in my opinion.
Rich Brian – Amen
I am a huge Rich Brian fan, so I couldn’t wait for his first full length project to drop. And when I did, I was not disappointed. Getting his album Amen in January was such a great way to start 2018 and I’m grateful. I liked all songs, especially Little Prince featuring NIKI as I adore her as well, but I probably listened to Cold the most when it came out.
