Brockhampton - TBA
The band will release what is potentially their final album together "before the end of the year," according to frontman Kevin Abstract.

Cardi B
Last August Cardi said in a US radio interview that she was plotting her next move after the global smash WAP, but was hesitant to give a release date until the pandemic is under control. "I have other projects coming out that doesn't involve music,” she said, “but when it comes to music I think I'm going to put out another single.” That single, Up, is released on Feburary 5


Cardi B

Gwen Stefani
Gwen has confirmed her fifth studio album, saying the record is a return to her ska and reggae-influenced roots. 

J Hus 
The London rapper says he hopes to release his third album by August, and it will feature a mammoth 26 tracks. 

Juice WRLD - The Party Never Ends

Kendrick Lamar
Kendrick has kept relatively quiet about when fans can expect new music, but given he was due to headline last year’s Glastonbury and British Summertime Hyde Park, we wouldn’t be surprised if he dropped the follow-up to his critically acclaimed DAMN. this year.

Lil Nas X
At last year’s Billboard Music Awards Lil Nas X quipped he will release the “best album of all time” in 2021, a follow-up to 2019’s 7 EP. Titled Montero, we already have its first three singles: Holiday, Montero (Call Me By Your Name), and Sun Goes Down.

Lizzo
The star recently revealed during an Instagram Q&A that she has nearly completed work on her new album - her second major label record - which is expected at some point this year. Longtime collaborator Ricky Reed and Oak, who worked on her last album Cuz I Love You,  are involved again.

SZA
US singer/rapper SZA returned last September with the Neptunes-produced Hit Different and saw 2020 off with new track Good Days, which has become her biggest headline single in the UK. Despite some tweeted and deleted posts about the relationship with her label, it seems like a follow-up to 2017’s CTRL is imminent.
