As announced by several artists at the end of 2021, the year 2022 has begun with the arrival of new sounds. These have been well-crafted to assure their authors to reinforce their dominance. For this first week of 2022, The Weeknd has been the biggest attraction. Gunna also took advantage of the apparent calm to carve out a slice of the pie.
New year, new sounds! Same tradition…
The first Friday of 2022 was marked by the release of new albums. At the top of the list, there was the Canadian The Weeknd with his album Dawn FM. Lil Baby has also pumped up the adrenaline rush over the impatience of Gunna fans who also released Drip Season 4. Papoose, for his latest imprint, used the time machine to send us off with his new project in the month of December.
The Weeknd is finally releasing Dawn FM
The Weeknd announces the dawn of a new, more than futuristic era with his album Dawn FM. The disc which carries as cover, the aged photo of the Canadian that one imagines in his old days is the fifth album of the man. His last project was released in 2020 under the name After Hours.
Even if this new jewel is rich with 16 tracks, it only saw the participation of a small group of guests. Among those chosen ones we have Tyler The Creator, Lil Wayne, Quincy Jones, Oneohtrix Point Never and Canadian actor Jim Carrey whose names were revealed in a trailer.
The Weeknd, who had announced a quiet release, still made big money available. The album enjoyed worldwide live streaming through the Amazon Music app and on Amazon Music’s Twitch channel.
The title Dawn FM opens the ball for the album. This title is followed by 6 other tracks which are respectively Gasoline, How Do I Make You Love Me?, Take My Breath, Sacrifice, A Tale By Quincy and Out of Time. The eighth track marks the collaboration between Tyler The Creator and The Weeknd on Here We Go…Again. Best Friends, Is There Someone Else?, Starry Eyes, Every Angel is Terrifying, Don’t Break My Heart, I Heard You’re Married (with Lil Wayne), Less Than Zero and Phantom Regret by Jim are the other tracks cited in the order that furnish the album.
To see the communication plan, The Weeknd will do once again, strong for its entry into the charts. Be careful, because it may cause numbers to fall.
Gunna’s Season 4 Drip Came Like A Molotov Cocktail
Lil Baby risked his reputation by claiming that Drip Season 4, the last of the series, would be a real bomb. The project that arrived this Friday definitely looks like an explosive device when you take a look at its components. In terms of collaboration, the Stoner Life Records rapper Young Thug invited the crème de la crème. Drake, Young Thug, Future, 21 Savage, R&B singer Chloe Bailey gave their color to this 19-track album. Sure values like G-Herbo, Lil Baby, Yung Bleu, Kodak Black, and even Roddy Rich also joined the party.
Even if Gunna released his album Wunna in 2021, it was on this project that he wanted to settle his account with Freddie Gibbs with whom he had a problem in 2019. The resentment did not disappear at Gunna.
At that time, Freddie had mocked Gunna calling him a snitch over Gunna’s appearance on a CNN show in 2019. Gunna planned a clash track dedicated to Freddie and he announced the colors in the week on Twitter. ” When my album comes out, Freddie Gibbs will live the greatest moment of his career. »
Papoose closes his career with December
Papoose ends his career as a rapper with an unprecedented marathon. The rapper announced last February to embark on a last race. He challenged himself to release an album consecutively every month. The last of the list arrived this January 7 and is actually named after the last month of a year. The artist who wants to devote himself to other things as well as to his family has not put this disc online. You will have to buy it directly from him by contacting him via Cash app.
Montana of 300 releases Rap God
Montana Of 300 calls itself the king of Rap. The rapper from Peoria, Illinois released his record on January 6, 2022. His 25-track album seems to have been well received and this motivates the rapper who thanks all those who accompanied him on this difficult path by buying the record. “ ‼BIG S,O TO ALL MY FANS. WE DID IT ! 1 AND INDEPENDENT… ALL THROUGH LOVE OF LYRICS AND LOYALTY. I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING ME OVER THE YEARS. I APPRECIATE EVERYONE WHO HAS PURCHASED THE ALBUM.
