Ariana Grande’s latest album “Positions” is an OK listen but is not up to par with the artist’s usual work.
Returning from a four-year album hiatus, R&B icon The Weeknd has released his latest project, “After Hours.” From start to finish, The Weeknd uses an array of synthesizers, auto-tune and echo to complement emotional lyrics about different aspects of his complicated life.
Featuring sounds ranging from hip-hop to R&B to traditional African music, “Black Panther: The Album” comes off a bold celebration of black culture.
Future sacrificed the high-energy simplicity that put him on the map for an overabundance of deep contemplation that doesn’t fit his artistic persona.
The Weeknd has created one of the most fun and hypnotizing albums of 2016. His themes of materialism and betrayal immerse listeners into “Starboy”.
