11 years following the release of her solo debut, The Dutchess, former Black Eyed Pea Fergie is back with two new singles. Her singles “Hungry,” and “You Already Know,” which feature Rick Ross and Nicki Minaj respectively, precede the release of her upcoming album, Double Dutchess, which is set for release on September 22. The album’s standard edition will contain 13 tracks, each of which accompanied by their own music video.

On Double Dutchess‘s opening track, “Hungry,” Fergie announces that she’s back, and ready to dominate the charts. Will her new singles match up to the success of classics like “Fergalicious,” “Glamorous,” and “Big Girls Don’t Cry?” Take a listen below and decide for yourself.

For nearly three years, Beck has been teasing a follow up album to his controversial Album of the Year Grammy-winning Morning Phase. 

He released the single “Dreams” in mid-2015, with no news of an album. He released “Wow,” the following summer, which later went on to be featured in a 2017 Acura MDX commercial.

His most recent effort is “Dear Life,” which was released accompanying the announcement that his 13th studio album, Colors, will be released on October 13. The instrumental track contains a piano, guitar, and drums, and is reminiscent of his late 90s/early 2000s sound.

Given that the album was mostly produced with Greg Kurstin, Colors is guaranteed to have the perfect alternative-pop sound.

Daniel Caesar has made a name for himself in the indie-music community over the course of the past three years. His songs about unrequited love, religion, and growing up in Canada have amassed over 20 million global streams on Apple Music.

On his full-length debut, Freudian, he incorporates minimalistic sounds, with tracks containing live acoustic instruments.

The 10-track project is a breath of fresh air from the overproduced trap style sounds of modern mainstream R&B.

“Best Part,” which features anonymous female vocalist H.E.R., contains clever analogies for the comfort of a lover. “You’re my water when I’m stuck in the desert. You’re the Tylenol I take when my head hurts,” Caesar sings to a female partner.

Caesar’s vulnerability, openness, and honesty make for a beautiful debut and set the stage for success as an independent artist.

“I smile like a saint with a sinner’s mind,” is the phrase that best sums up Miguel’s work. While a lot of his lyrics are explicit and sexually charged, his newest single, “Sky Walker,” is more of a party track.

While Miguel’s lyrics are usually more well-thought out, he shows a more fun side of himself, with references to classic 90s films, along with nonsensical lines. Although most can agree that lines like “Got the baes looking at me like it’s dinnertime. I know she vegan, but she want the steak tonight” are a little bit corny, lyrics about being “quick to dodge the bull like a matador” are a fun middle finger to the haters.
