We had plenty of good music in enjoy in 2015, and it seems like 2016 is going to be an even bigger year. While 2015 was the year of Adele and Drake, new music from artists like Kanye West, Rihanna and Sia is going to provide not only music listening pleasures but a lot of interesting competition on the charts. We’ve got the top 5 albums you can expect this year!
Sia – “This Is Acting”

Sia’s seventh album named ‘This Is Acting’ is releasing January 29th- which will include all the songs that other artists rejected (remember she’s written huge hits for Adele and Rihanna). It will definitely make a few singers question their song-selection criteria, and we sure can expect some hits from the singer-songwriter.

She’s been off the radar for quite some time, and it is about time that Lady Gaga be back on the stage! In November, Lily Allen let it slip that Gaga was working with Mark Ronson on the follow up to 2013’s Artpop- which was quite a disappointment all in all.
Drake – “View From the 6”

Drake’s new Album ‘View from the 6’ is rumoured to be arriving today! It’s his fourth proper studio LP following the mixtape 'If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late'. Odds are this most emo of MCs will once again break our hearts - and the Internet.
Kanye West – “Swish”

Although no official release date has been announced yet for Kanye’s new album, he tweeted in early December that his latest album was almost finished, and that it will be called “Swish”. It’s the second year in a row that he dropped a new track on new year’s eve, as last week he dropped “Facts”-which is basically a giant braggy, pop culture explosion with lyrics like “Plus Kimoji just shut down the app store, uh/ And we made a million a minute”, and “10 thousand dollar fur for Nori/ just copped it (Yo!)/Your baby daddy won't even take your daughter shoppin' (Yo!)".
Rihanna – “Anti”

Possibly the most anticipated and the most delayed album of all time, Rihanna has still not announced a release date for her 8th album ANTI - even though she’s already started selling tickets for the tour in February. One of her songwriters actually tweeted that he blamed her boyfriend Travis Scott for the delay, and that he told Rihanna it wasn’t good enough.
We asked you on social media whose album you’re most looking forward to, and you agreed with our number one - Rihanna’s Anti! The tribe has spoken.
