June 10, 20173 min read

Summer has just begun and the one thing many of us are looking forward to is new music. Here’s a list of hype albums set to release during summer ’17.

  1. Pretty Girls Like Trap Music by 2 Chainz  (Release date: June 16)

It’s been a little over a year since the rapper last released a solo album, and so far four singles have been released off this new one. This album features many other big names in hip-hop. Travis Scott, Jhene Aiko, Drake, and Trey Songz are just a few of the other artists he collaborated with. The album is sure to have some of the next club bangers.

2. Ultralife by Oh Wonder (Release date: June 16)

Ultralife is the alternative pop duo’s second studio album. Their self-titled first album, Oh Wonder, had songs featured in several TV shows. Their chill acoustic vibe has appealed to many teenagers, as well as adults across the world. The duo’s sound makes for the perfect background vlog music or just for staying at home relaxing by the pool. The hopes for this album are high and highly anticipated.

3. Melodrama by Lorde (Release date: June 16)

This is Lorde’s second studio album after her first album, Pure Heroine. Since the release of her first album, she’s received two Grammy awards for her work as well as a feature in the Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1  soundtrack. The singer is well known for alternative beats and distinct voice. Her second album is one to look out for on the charts once it’s released.

4. TLC by  TLC (Release date: June 30)

From their fashion trends to their music, they have been a true icon for the 90’s. Their final studio album has the same feel as the music we fell in love with when they first began releasing content. No better way to say goodbye to the music scene than to release a long-awaited, self-titled final album.

5. Lust for Life by Lana Del Rey (Release date: July 21)

Lana’s last album was released in 2015. Most material on the top charts is mainly pop, country, or rap. Her alternative indie vibes are just what this summer needs to make it a one to remember. Lana  Del Slay? I think so.
