NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of March 9, 2018

A logical March week.

You might not find 44 more releases you like this week, or on any given week, but there are certainly a lot of great albums and singles ready to hit the market. Here’s what you’ll find on digital services and in stores this Friday:

LOGIC – Bobby Tarantino II (iTunes)
Announced on social media yesterday, this mixtape (a sequel to a 2016 album) is expected this week. The rapper has released several tracks over the last few weeks, including “44 More”, “Overnight” and “Everyday”, a collaboration with DJ/producer Marshmello, which now has airplay at several radio formats. Given that momentum, there’s a good chance it could debut at the top of next week’s album survey.

LIL YACHTY – Lil Boat 2 (iTunes)
This popular rapper is sailing the chart waters once again with a sequel to his 2016 mixtape, featuring collaborations with performers like 2 Chainz, Offset and Quavo of Migos and many others. (A radio single hasn’t been named from the set as of yet.) His last studio album hit #5 in its opening week on the Billboard 200, and this release should easily return him to the top five.

Notable albums out this week: Calum Scott‘s Only Human (iTunes), Jake Miller‘s Silver Lining (iTunes), Liza Anne‘s Fine But Dying (iTunes), Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats‘s Tearing At The Seams (iTunes), The Neighbourhood‘s The Neighbourhood (iTunes), Three Days Grace‘s Outsider (iTunes), A Wrinkle In Time (Soundtrack) (iTunes)
