mrLdavis’ Top 5 Albums of the year and Top 10 songs of the year!!
THE YEAR IS ALMOST OVER!!! So now its time to countdown, musically!!
Here is my list of MYYYYY favorite albums on the year!
5.Jay-Z and Kanye West – Watch The Throne
It’s very rare that a Hip-Hop album catches my attention. At first I did not like this album at all but after further review, compared to many other Hip Hop albums this one stood out. I think the swag, although I hate that word, of these artist combined make their music intriguing.
Best Track – Gotta Have It
4.Chris Brown – F.A.M.E
My Cousin Chris Brown!!! I really liked Chris Browns album, but I didn’t love it. Something was missing but I can’t figure out exactly what it was. There are a couple of songs I skip on this album, but that doesn’t take away from the staple Chris Brown sound, which is rap infused R&B dance music. F.A.M.E makes the perfect road trip album. It has your slow songs, dance music, and songs that almost make you want to cry.
Best Track – Beg for it
3.Drake – Take Care
When I said Drake was the new princess of hip-hop and R&B I meant it. Drakes “Take Care” is one of the most emotional rap albums I have ever heard in life, but it’s all very true. It’s almost like if Trey Songz, had sang Drakes album it would have been considered R&B, but I enjoyed the vulnerability as well as the dramatic imagery in Drakes music.
Best Track – Underground King and The Motto, which was bonus track
2. Beyoncé – 4
Many of you know how I feel about this album already. It may have been one of Beyoncé’s best album, next to B’day. The album was very mature and the songs were amazing. What Beyoncé missed on this album was being relatable to everyone. If you aren’t someone in love or a girl who ran the world, than you might not have enjoyed Beyoncé’s album as much as everyone else did. But Beyoncé is at a point where she doesn’t have to please everyone. But the fact that Beyoncé’s album lacked music for the everyday people is what places her at number 2.
Best Track- I Miss You
1.Kelly Rowland – Here I Am
Honestly, Kelly Rowland’s “Here I Am” album was one of the most cohesive albums to be released this year. You won’t get that unless you are an R&B fan. But from start to finish, from lyrical content to vocal delivery Kelly Rowland’s “Here I am” hit every R&B mark. Of course there was a bit to be desired, but that’s with every album. But Kelly’s album is one album I can listen to start to finish. Which is why Kelly’s album was my number one favorite of the year.
Best Track- Keep it between us
