A few new albums for your (hopefully) warm weather Friday. Let’s get to it:
Janelle Monáe – Dirty Computer
As it’s been gradually revealed, Janelle Monáe‘s third studio album Dirty Computer isn’t just a new collection of genre-bending music, it’s a profound statement for equality. Released via Bad Boy (forget she was signed to Diddy), Dirty Computer was preceded by singles “PYNK,” “Django Jane,” “Make Me Feel” and “I Like That” and sees additional assistance from Beach Boys‘ Brian Wilson, Grimes, Zoë Kravitz and Pharrell Williams (members of Monáe’s Wondaland collective also help out with the project’s multilayered production).

Post Malone – Beerbongs & Bentleys
Even after the chart-topping, 21 Savage-assisted “Rockstar” and the well-received “Psycho” with Ty Dolla $ign, it almost feels like Post Malone‘s official follow-up to the successful debut Stoney is rather anti-climactic (with some Yeezus-style promo to boot, apparently). Titled Beerbongs & Bentleys, Post’s sophomore effort — which is already at
Gold Platinum status — sees 18 tracks and additional appearances from Swae Lee, YG, G-Eazy and Nicki Minaj. Crack open your best brewski and press play below.
Wiley – Godfather II
The Godfather returns. Grime/Eskibeat fans will surely rejoice at a new project from Wiley, a proper sequel to his 2017 release. Godfather II sees 12 tracks and appearances from Shakka, Jme, D Double E, Kyla, Wretch 32 and Scratch.
YoungBoy Never Broke Again – Until Death Call My Name
Nothing will stop Louisiana rapper NBA YoungBoy, not even his current legal issues. Today, he delivers his official debut project, Until Death Call My Name, which sees 13 tracks and appearances from Birdman, Lil Baby and Future. Stream that below.
