9 must-listen albums of 2017 (so far)

With new songs, videos, and albums often dropping in the middle of the night, the music landscape of 2017 is constantly mutating. So without further ado, here are the best albums of the year, thus far:

Kendrick Lamar, Damn

Release date: April 14th 2017

Why it’s great: Kendrick Lamar is human again.

Jidenna, The Chief

Release date: February 17th 2017
Why it’s great: Because maybe this wasn’t exactly the classic that fans of “Classic Man” were hoping for. But this wild and unpredictable Chief is here to stay.

Migos, Culture

Release date: January 27th 2017
Why it’s great: This is the sound of a trio driven not by Golden Globe shout-outs, magazine covers, and memes, but by their steadfast belief in each other.

The xx, I See You

Release date: January 13rd 2017
Why it’s great:  They’ve finally created music you want to throw your whole body into.

Kehlani, SweetSexySavage

Release date: January 27th 2017
Why it’s great: Given the creatively fractured (and commercially turbulent) nature of R&B in 2017, it’s impressive she created a record that’s so unassumingly cohesive.

Future, HNDRXX

Release date: February 24th 2017
Why it’s great: It leaves you hollowed-out but yearning for the next chapter in the saga. Luckily, there won’t be a long wait.

Drake, More Life

Release date: March 18th 2017
Why it’s great:  Because it is the best Drake project since Take Care because it gives Aubrey Graham space to explore his obsessions.

Sampha, Process

Release date: February 3rd 2017
Why it’s great: Like in the work of Frank Ocean or James Blake, that poetic quality draws you in. Trust the Process.

Syd, Fin

Release date: February 3rd 2017
Why it’s great: Syd doesn’t mess around. When she sings about packing her bags on the album’s crooning closer “Insecurities,” you’ll be the one shedding a tear as she walks away.

And here are a couple songs we’ll be listening to all month long:

Sean Paul – Body ft. Migos

Lana Del Rey feat. The Weeknd, “Lust for Life”

DJ Khaled – “I’m the one” ft Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the rapper, Lil Wayne

Faith Evans and The Notorious B.I.G., “Legacy”
