We are nearly one week away from the release of The Weeknd's, "Beauty Behind The Madness," two weeks from the release of Travis Scott's "Rodeo," less than a month away from Mac Miller's "GO:OD AM" and Jay Rock could release "90059" at anytime.

"Beauty Behind The Madness"

These four albums are among some of the most highly anticipated projects in Hip-Hop and R&B and might be complete game-changers in terms of successful album releases this year. Recently, The Weeknd has been a lot more socially present.

He debuted Kanye West and Adidas' clothing collaboration for GQ and is so popular he had his Instagram page hacked, twice.

His album "Beauty Behind The Madness," has already seen immense success especially after the release of his single, "Can't Feel My Face." The song currently resides at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 and has peaked at number one multiple times since it's release.

His debut of Kanye West's clothing line with Adidas was just a taste of his relationship with Yeezus.

The Weeknd also previewed a new cut produced by West, off the "Beauty Behind The Madness" album called, "Tell Your Friends." The hype behind the project is remarkable and The Weeknd could possibly join his OVO peer Drake who had the years first platinum-selling album, "If You're Reading This It's Too Late." "Beauty Behind The Madness" is scheduled to be released on August 28.


Fans have been waiting for Travis Scott to release "Rodeo" for what seems like forever now.

The album has already been considered a game-changer by Theophilus London, who has already had a chance to preview the project.

Scott is also elevating the project and the hype surrounding it with tweets that make it seem like it's going to be one of the best bodies of work he's ever created.

Scott has also been teasing something this week as he asked fans to pay close attention. There wasn't much else given to fans, however, a recent tweet from The Weeknd might be alluding to a single called "We Don't Pray For Love" or "Pray For Love." Scott was tagged in the tweet from The Weeknd and he later retweeted it.

It could also be a track off The Weeknd's upcoming album but it's safe to say that Travis Scott fans would love another single before the release of "Rodeo" on September 4. The hype is very real for Scott fans who are being promised one heck of an album from the Kanye West prodigy.


TDE had a big year with the release of Kendrick Lamar's "To Pimp A Butterfly." Now Jay Rock, the only member of the Black Hippy crew who hasn't released a studio album with TDE is gearing up for the release of "90059," which is still a mystery. What's not a mystery is the singles that fans were able to hear, such as "Gumbo," "Money Trees Deuce" and "90059." Judging from the singles the album is shaping up to be something pretty epic and yet another successful album from the Top Dawg Entertainment team.

Funny enough the album and it's full tracklisting is visible in iTunes, however, the release date has the album set for an August 18, 2016 release date.

Jay Rock looks to be gearing his fans up for a surprise release much like Kendrick Lamar's "To Pimp A Butterfly."


As if September couldn't get any better with Scott's "Rodeo" another big name in Hip-Hop, Mac Miller, will be releasing a new album titled, "GO:OD AM." So far fans have heard "100 Grandkids" and "Break The Law." The songs are very skillfully done tracks with Miller's undeniable talent showing through. Miller has had huge success just being an Indie artist. Being signed by Warner Bros.

will not stifle his creativity which means fans will be able to get the Mac Miller they all love.

He has the ability to effortlessly produce deep Hip-Hop music and lays down heavy bars that would compete with the best artists out.

Miller is another artist that has the capability of producing a platinum album this year because of his fanbase and musical ability.
