NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of July 21, 2017

A Rey of light on the charts.

It’s the middle of July, so get stuck in the middle of all these grand rock and rap releases hitting stores today. It’s sure to be one mighty musical match for #1! Here are the notable albums and singles this week:

LANA DEL REY – Lust For Life (iTunes)
After taking a small Honeymoon two years ago, the New York City singer and songwriter is ready for more love from the buying public with her fourth major-label album. It features a number of interesting collaborations, with performers like Stevie Nicks and The Weekend (on the title track) in the mix. Del Rey’s fan base is pretty big at this point, and I imagine they’ll be doing all they can to ensure a #1 debut for their queen.

MEEK MILL – Wins & Losses (iTunes)
This popular rapper is just below the top ten on Urban radio with the single “Whatever You Need”, featuring Chris Brown and Ty Dolla $ign. His previous set, Dreams Worth More Than Money, netted him some money when it debuted at #1 in 2015. On this particular week, it’s going to be harder to reach the top spot, but Mill could pull it off again.

TYLER, THE CREATOR – Flower Boy (iTunes)
Since 2011, all three of this rapper’s studio albums have reached the top five on the Billboard 200 chart with minimal radio play. So, this one should be another easy top five for the 26-year-old, given the millions of streams from his previous sets. “I Ain’t Got Time!” was the most recent single from the release, coming out earlier this week.

FOSTER THE PEOPLE – Sacred Hearts Club (iTunes)
Featuring “Doing It For The Money”, which ranks in the top 15 on the Alternative chart, this quartet (once a trio) is looking for a third top ten album on the Billboard 200. Three songs on this album appeared on an EP called III, which was released in April.

More albums out this week: Declan McKenna‘s What Do You Think About The Car? (iTunes), In This Moment‘s Ritual (iTunes), Romeo Santos‘s Golden (iTunes), Sage The Gemini‘s Morse Code (iTunes), Vera Blue‘s Perennial (iTunes), Descendants 2 (Soundtrack) (iTunes)

TURN IT UP TUESDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (February 25)

Truly where it's at.

Truly where it’s at.

From pop to rock to country and even a little bit of latin flair, it’s a mixed bag of music this week. Here’s everything you need to know about that’s in stores today, February 25:

  • 43-year-old Beck returns with his first album in 5 1/2 years titled Morning Phase, featuring the AAA hit “Blue Moon”. It’s his first release under his new home, Capitol Records. All four of his previous studio albums have debuted in the top ten, and given the long period of time since his latest release, this will very easily enter there. (iTunes)
  • If there is one thing that’s true… it’s that The Fray has a new album in stores this week, Helios. “Love Don’t Die” led the effort, which is now proceeding to crash off the charts. Whoops. Luckily, there are a few followups on there that could provide them with some more airtime. (iTunes) (My review of Helios)
  • Country star Dierks Bentley is out with his first album in two years, Riser. Though first single “Bourbon In Kentucky” was quickly pulled from radio due to some sort of issue, followup “I Hold On” is currently top ten at the format. (iTunes)
  • Former Aventura leader Romeo Santos is in stores with his second solo effort, Fórmula, Vol. 2. Vol. 1 made the Billboard 200’s top ten back in 2011. (iTunes)
  • Rapper ScHoolboy Q makes his major label debut on Interscope with Oxymoron, his third studio album overall. The current single from the project is “Man Of The Year”, which is a solid hit at both Rhythm and Urban radio. (iTunes)
  • Other releases out this week include: Brian Culbertson‘s Another Long Night Out (iTunes), Celtic Woman‘s Emerald: Musical Gems (iTunes), Miner‘s Into The Morning (iTunes), Neneh Cherry‘s Blank Project (iTunes), Run River North‘s Run River North (iTunes), Skaters‘s Manhattan (iTunes), St. Vincent‘s St. Vincent (iTunes) and Twin Forks‘s Twin Forks (iTunes).

New digital-only EPs and singles that you can buy this week include:

  • From The Spark (EP), featuring the single “The Struggle” from rockers Grizfolk. (iTunes)
  • “I Don’t Dance”, a fresh single from Country singer Lee Brice. (iTunes)
  • “Not A Bad Thing”, an edit of a third release from Justin Timberlake‘s The 20/20 Experience — 2 of 2. (iTunes)
  • “Peace”, a new single from the Maryland band O.A.R.. (iTunes)
  • “Stay”, a collaboration from tyDi and former The Voice finalist Dia Frampton. (iTunes)
  • “Wild Wild Love”, new from rapper Pitbull and G.R.L. (iTunes)

Next week, Pharrell keeps things “Happy” with a new solo effort, G I R L, while American Authors, David Nail and Lea Michele are also bringing cheerful contenders to the table. See you in seven!
