The unreleased songs of Mac Miller is finally coming out! The album is said to be a “part 2” of Swimming and we honestly can’t wait to hear another masterpiece from the late rapper/singer. Good News was the first single out and it is giving us some Come Back To Earth vibes and we are here for it!


The collab album between Kid Cudi and Kanye West is getting a second go at it! Two legends in the hip hop scene coming together is always a treat. 


Part of our wishlist is new Rihanna songs, PLEASE! We know Fenty is doing amazing but we can’t wait to hear some new jams from Riri herself. ANTI is a timeless album that we still listen to up to now, but some new music won’t hurt right?


She is rumored to release a new album this year and we are absolutely here for it! Love Galore was such a 2018-2019 anthem and we can’t wait to hear what she comes up with next

J. Cole

Aside from Dreamworld, J.Cole as a solo artist is really dope! There are talks of a solo album release this year, so we’re excited for that!

Carly Rae Jepsen

Ms. Carly said that she wants to do a SIDE B to Dedicated and we say YES PLEASE! She didn’t really say when she will do it, but we are hoping it will be this year. Need us some CRJ to get us through 2020!

Hayley Williams

Last year, on her birthday she did hint on some new music. But this is a solo project, and she already released some teasers for it. Paramore fans and Hayley fans alike are for sure on the edge of their seats til the release!

This is 31…thank fucking god 💀 30 tried me so hard but I’m owning it and trying my hardest to lean in to it all. No matter how long we’re here for life is constant and complicated at times. I’ve changed drastically in the last couple years and I’m still changing and that’s okay. 31 is going to be a big ol’ year and I’m going to spend it all on myself. For the first time in a decade I’m ready to feel the world around me and look up for once. Be kind to yourself people we’re only human, go slow, put your phone down and laugh out loud at every opportunity. Learning to REALLY truly love yourself is it, and I’ve only just realized that that is more than enough. I’ll learn to love you lot eventually 😂 Bunch of fucking savages, 30 will be a drum n bass record to spite you. Chin up eh ❤️

It’s been a while since Adele released an album or at least a single. We want to hear those beautiful chops and lyrics real soon!


Melodrama was a masterpiece! And we can’t wait what Lorde has up her sleeve next. Although there are new rumors of any new releases, she is part of our wishlist to get new music from this year.

Anything by Frank Ocean is very much welcomed. Last year, he released some singles here and there and maybe, just maybe, a new album this year? *Fingers crossed.*

She did announce it already! We are waiting Dua for that new new! 

Lady Gaga

Ms. Gaga is rumored to release a single in February and that’s all we need to know to say “hurry up, January!”
