Lana Del Rey – Norman Fucking Rockwell!
Dave – Psychodrama
Kanye West's Auto-Tune-heavy, emotionally naked fourth album came after a brutal year during which his mother died and his engagement broke up, but the album's cavernous sound and exposed-soul lyrics confused even those who had been aware of West's recent trials. Its core aesthetic was like nothing in hip-hop: freshly butchered feelings enumerated in detail, but masked by digital processing; beds of spare synths used to balance a mix of singing and rapping. Drake cited West as his budding sound's "most influential person" when he was hustling mixtapes, while artists like Future further tweaked the idea of using Auto-Tune as a way to convey emotions that evoke too much feeling when spoken of explicitly. O K Computer might be Radiohead's best album, and Kid A their most musically innovative, but In Rainbows shook the music industry's very infrastructure. The band ended the four-year wait following 's Hail to the Thief by announcing simply on their official site, "the new album is finished, and it's coming out in 10 days. The album's "pay-what-you-want" offer that allowed diehards, casual fans and curious listeners to put their own value on music was just another step forward in questioning how the music business does business. When Mary J. Blige signed to Uptown Records, she began working with an up-and-coming producer named Sean "Puffy" Combs, and together they forged the idea of what came to be known as "hip-hop soul" —music with the emotional heft of the former, the sample-heavy breeziness of the latter, and the pop appeal of both. The combination — not to mention Blige's powerhouse voice, which added extra gravitas to songs like the feather-light "Real Love" — resulted in cross-generational success.

The album won't go down without a fight. As the algorithmic thinking of the streaming music era tightens its grip on the record industry and consumer listening habits, artists are still writing and recording collections of new material, releasing them as cohesive units on specific dates, and suggesting that you listen to them in a pre-established order. As a format for enjoying multiple songs and a way of thinking about creative development, it remains essential. Even with all its tumult, didn't change that. There's always good new music out there, providing the soundtrack to the highs and lows of daily life. Sometimes it comes from a new artist you've never heard of before; sometimes it comes from a reliable veteran you perhaps stopped listening to consistently. Either way, great albums make an impression. These are the best records of Like this kind of stuff? A song like the opener "imagine," with its clicking percussion and soaring hook, elegantly moves between moments of intimacy and widescreen catharsis.
Music is an American record label founded by rapper Kanye West in John Legend , Common , and West were the label's initial artists. Common's Be , the label's second release, was the recipient of four Grammy Award nominations. I never asked to a label owner. Sony offered it to me, and I took it. But I can't be there when people are calling me to the studio to hear some music or approve clothes for a video. No disrespect to anybody, my focus is Graduation , I've got a hard enough time calling radio programmers and getting them to play "Can't Tell Me Nothing", a song that's connecting with people but that's only at 1, spins.
