Which 2013 Album Are You Anticipating Most? – Readers Poll
2013 is shaping up to be a great year for music already. There are a lot of amazing new albums due out in 2013, and we're eagerly awaiting the arrival of fresh tunes from a number of our favorite international divas, teen queens, boy bands, Brits, and big-time rappers. We've narrowed down the list of new releases for 2013 and we want to know which album you're most excited about!
While many of the 2013 LPs remain unconfirmed, being that they are still in the developmental stages and/or are in the process of recording, it's pretty much certain that Beyonce, Britney Spears, Mariah Carey, Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus and Avril Lavigne will dish out a serving of fresh jams this year. While all of these names have our ears perking, we cannot wait to hear what Beyonce, Brit, Mariah and Miley have in store, mostly because everything Bey and Brit touches turns to gold, and Mariah and Miley haven't released new material in quite some time, so we're anxious to see how their sound has morphed over these years.
The aforementioned vocalists may have 'TBA' as their titles for now, but one album name that has been confirmed is Lady Gaga's highly-anticipated 'ARTPOP.' Mama Monster has been teasing her latest musical masterpiece for months now, and the two-volume, "risky" LP is sure to be intriguing (Gaga called it an "assault on your ears ) and one of the biggest releases of 2013.
Another superstar artist that has confirmed their album title is Justin Bieber, who is dropping the acoustic version of his 'Believe' LP in Jan. 2013. And speaking of heartthrobs... Jonas Brothers have a new album due out 2013, which will likely include new songs like 'Wedding Bells' (which they wrote about Miley Cyrus). Also joining the list of boy bands with new albums in 2013 are five-piece British-Irish act the Wanted, who will drop 'Third Strike' in 2013, as well as Backstreet Boys, who have reunited and will unleash their first album as a quintet since 2005!
Additionally, you can expect fresh tunes from Paramore (their self-titled LP expected to drop in April 2013), Jessie J, Rita Ora, ASAP Rocky ('LongLiveAsap' will be officially released in Jan. 2013), Nicki Minaj ('Pink Friday: The Pinkprint'), Azealia Banks ('Broke With Expensive Taste') and Lil Wayne ('I Am Not a Human Being II'). Finally, we'd be surprised not to hear a new batch of tracks from Eminem, Jay-Z and Kanye West, who have all been in the studio as of late.
