Which July 2013 Album Release Are You Anticipating Most? – Readers Poll
July 2013 is shaping up to be a great month for music lovers. There are so many new albums dropping in July 2013, we can hardly decide whose LP we're most excited for.
Which album has you eagerly anticipating the month of July? We're taking votes for the album that has the most people amped, and you can vote for your favorite once per hour until the poll closes on Sunday, June 30, at 11:59 PM EST.
Could it be Selena Gomez's latest dance-pop collection, 'Stars Dance,' out July 23? The LP boasts her midtempo, "tribal-inspired" single 'Come & Get It' as well as her Cataracs-produced, dance-floor jam 'Slow Down.'
Or maybe you're more into the R&B sounds of Chris Brown, Ciara and Mariah Carey, who all have albums on the horizon for mid-late July. Chris Brown has already treated us to 'Fine China' off of his forthcoming LP 'X,' while Ciara's gotten sexy on the lead single, 'Body Party,' off of her self-titled album.
Then we've got Jay-Z, who has already sold a million copies of his upcoming album 'Magna Carta Holy Grail' (due out July 4) within 24 hours of its official announcement. Although details are scarce, HOV worked with producers Pharrell and Rick Rubin, so it's bound to be amazing.
Finally, we've got Sara Bareilles, Skylar Grey and the Backstreet Boys, who will be unleashing new albums in July 2013. Bareilles will gift fans with 'The Blessed Unrest,' featuring her new single 'Brave,' and Ms. Grey is experimenting with a variety of sounds on 'Don't Look Down,' produced by her buddy Eminem as well as Alex da Kid and J.R. Rotem. And last but certainly not least, we'll see the triumphant return of BSB, with all five guys present on their newest LP, 'In a World Like This.'
