7 Artistes That Need To Drop Albums This Year — Which One Would You Like To Hear The Most?
It’s true what they say, you never really know how good an artist is until he drops an album.
While quite a number of artists manage to release impressive albums during their careers, most don’t get to pull it off. And this has, for many years, been what has distinguished the good artists from the best.
You can be just good and still have a whack album. But, chances are if you are able to do a perfect album, you’re the best at what you do.
And that is why, over the years, there’s been a lot of pressure on artists, both new and old, to get into the studio and record a studio album and release for listeners. If they’re lucky, they have a couple of hits and their albums become the talk of the town. If they’re not, well, they can always try again.
Since 2020, though, due to the pandemic, there has been an unusual influx of albums from Nigerian artists.
Key players like WizKid, Davido, and Burna Boy have all dropped albums since then. Some badasses like Olamide and Adekunle Gold have even released two. It’s been an amazing two years so far.
But even with all that activity going on, we didn’t get albums from some of our favorite artists, and this made people keep looking forward to this year.
Here are seven artists that should most definitely drop an album as soon as possible. It’s been much anticipated, and fans will for sure like to have any of these albums!
Since his breakout in 2017, with “Issa Goal,” Naira Marley hasn’t stopped delivering hits. In 2019, he put out his first-ever project, an EP called “Lord of Lamba” and since then he has only released singles upon singles.
If anyone should be dropping an album in 2022, it should be Naira Marley. It’s long overdue. Besides, his singles aren’t doing so well anymore.
While both of his “High Tension” EPs are some of the hottest projects that have been released by a new artist in recent times, it’s now time for Bella Shmurda to go deeper by releasing his debut album.
He’s had just enough time in the limelight, and he has enough connections to make it happen. So what’s he waiting for? I wonder.
Lil Kesh, from 2014 – 2016 was one of the brightest youngsters in the music industry, and his debut “YAGI” which was released under YBNL was a very impressive body of work.
Since he left YBNL though, he hasn’t been able to pull off a lot. He dropped an EP in 2020, but that’s not nearly enough. It’s been five years since his first album, he should know that he needs to drop another album now.
Who wouldn’t just like a new Falz record? I mean, when it comes to albums, Falz has delivered and he’s one of the most consistent rappers on the scene.
Not that he has anything to prove though, but it’s been a while since Falz made waves, he probably is cooking something big. It better be an album.
Wandecoal is just lazy, to be honest. Someone of his status is supposed to have nothing less than six studio albums, but he has only two.
Wandecoal needs to do better, get in the studio and do another album. And it has to be this year if there’s to be any hope that it will have any impact on the industry. He’s not getting any younger, after all.
If there’s anyone that would definitely deliver when it comes to albums, it’s Burna Boy. The Grammy-winning singer is yet to follow up his 2020 outing, “Twice As Tall.”
In a couple of months, it’s gonna be two years since that. He needs to put out something now. The streets are starving!
Alaga has sure taken all the time in the world to drop this one. Last year with the release of “Omo,” we thought he was going to put out the album for sure. But almost a year after, still no sign of it.
Reminisce has already returned this year with a single, and this means there’s hope that he might be coming with something soon.
I, for one, am excited about the prospects of a new Reminisce release!
