Christine and The Queens – Redcar les adorables étoiles (prologue)
After an injury at the end of rehearsals, Christine and the Queens was forced to postpone his third studio album Redcar les adorables étoiles. Released on November 11, the album proved to be worth the wait. There is no doubt that whether Redcar is a person, character, or hybrid of the two, the album is on another level in modern pop music.
Standout Songs: Ma bien aimée bye bye, La chanson du chevalier, rien dire, Je te vois enfin
Nas – King’s Disease III
Queensbridge rapper and businessman Nasir Jones (Nas) has returned for his third installment in his King’s Disease series with King’s Disease III. Harder than previous incarnations, Nas and Hit-Boy return with their fourth collaboration. Polished and reenergized, the two do it all on their own. No features — no guests, just two pros showing the world what’s possible — all on their own.
Standout Songs: Legit, Thun, Recession Proof, WTF SMH, Get Light
