This year is going to be a fun ride for music. The Grammy’s marked the beginning of 2018 by awarding some of the best music albums of last year and now as 2018 is passing by, I am sure everybody is eager to know what’s in store for the audience this time. Here’s a list of some must-hear albums awaiting your attention in 2018:
1. Camila Cabello, “Camila”
The ex-member of the girl band Fifth Harmony, Camila Cabello didn’t start with an excellent response but only after the release of ‘Havana,’ she started to climb up in her solo career. ‘Camila’ released this year, is a collection of some of the best songs by the singer. The album is an absolute delight to the ears.
2. Arctic Monkeys – TBA
After a long break of five years, Arctic Monkeys are finally ready to release their new album in 2018. The band is expected to return with a new LP in 2018, and bassist Nick O’Malley previously revealed that the group was recording at a “secret location.” Fans have been waiting for new tunes, and it’s pretty certain that they’ll be listening to a sixth album later this year after the launch of their last album AM.
3. Vampire Weekend – Mitsubishi Macchiato
They released their last album in 2013, and since then a lot of changes have been taking place in the band like Rostam Batmanglij left the band, Chris Tomson and Chris Baio both released solo records in the meantime. Speaking in September 2017, singer Ezra Koenig revealed that the album is almost 80 percent done, so there’s a great chance it’ll be with us at some point over the next 12 months.
4. Nicki Minaj – TBA
According to the Anaconda star, the new record will be “a classic hip-hop album” and her “best body of work” to date. The rapper featured on a host of singles in 2017, including MotorSport with Migos and Cardi B, and anticipation for the new album is high.

6. Kanye West – Turbo Grafx 16
Kanye West’s last album ‘The Last Pablo’ received confused reviews as some called it a work of genius while others criticised it as a pretentious mess. We have tremendous expectations from his next album and everyone is waiting with excitement for its release, The title of the album is pretty accurate too since Kanye last tweeted way back in 2016 ” My next album is titled Turbo Grafx 16.”
7. Justin Timberlake – Man of the Woods
Timberlake on January 2 released an interesting teaser for his new album and took the internet by surprise with it. It’s a collaboration with Pharrell Williams which recently got released on Feb 2, and we cannot stop adoring it.
8. Cardi B – TBA
With her huge single hit song ‘Bodak Yellow,’ Cardi B is all set to release her studio album in 2018, and we cannot wait to hear it. She also released other songs like ‘Gangsta Bitch Music’ and ‘Vol 1 & 2’ last year while people are still not getting over Bodak Yellow.
