While 2021 is quickly drawing to a close, some of Our Generation’s favorite artists may be striving to end the year off with a bang.
According to Sony Music’s investors’ documents, released on Oct. 28, artists in Travis Scott, 21 Savage, A$AP Rocky and more are planning to drop new music in the next six months. Other artists set to release projects include French Montana, Future, the Black Eyed Peas, Chris Brown, Rick Ross and Alicia Keys.
Keys, Montana, Travis Scott and A$AP Rocky have all already alluded to dropping their albums in the near future, as the list seems to be right on schedule.
Travis Scott is perhaps the most likely to release this year, as he is expected to deliver a new single Friday (Nov. 5) at midnight. However, there is still no release date for his highly-anticipated follow-up to Astroworld. Scott’s Astroworld Festival this weekend could have many more surprises in store surrounding his upcoming LP, Utopia.
As for A$AP Rocky, 2018’s Testing was a testament to his transcendent character arc as an artist. He took more risks than ever in his career, “Testing” out new sounds and brought along an A-list brigade of collaborators for the ride. Rocky kept fans occupied with the recent re-release of his 2011 debut mixtape Live.Love.A$AP. Yet, the Harlem-bred icon’s upcoming project has already been heard by the masses — playing the record in full over the course of the summer at both Summer Smash and Rolling Loud. Previously saying to GQ that it was “90 percent done,” it’s only a matter of time before new Rocky is in fans’ hands.
21 Savage has been actively putting the pieces together for another full-length solo effort. Taking to Twitter a few weeks back, he and longtime collaborator Metro Boomin shared a few friendly exchanges about working together on a new album. Savage said all he needed was beats, and Boomin seemed more than happy to oblige. 21 is coming off his 4-track EP Spiral from the latest installment of the Saw movie franchise.
