Alicia Keys, Rick Ross, Mach-Hommy, JAWAN.mp3, Dai Burger, and more make up this week’s best new albums.

New Music Friday has arrived. All week long we’ve had our eyes on a few buzzy releases including Big Boi x Sleepy Brown and Tierra Whack. We also must admit we’ve been waiting on Juice Wrld’s posthumous album.

Whack returns again to roll out Pop?; Big Boi & Sleepy Brown long-awaited collab album Big Sleepover; Juice Wrld’s posthumous full length Fighting Demons is here, and Rick Ross’ Richer Than I Ever Been arrived on Friday with features from Jazmine Sullivan, 21 Savage, Wale, Future and more.

Mach Hommy has shared Balens Cho (Hot Candles); Hus KingPin reveals Holiday Hus: XXXMas; Rio Da Yung Og presents Fiend Live Matter; Little Brother’s The Listening (Deluxe Edition) is here and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie surprise drops B4 Ava.

R&B heads should look to rising singer JAWAN.mp3’s project The Abstract, it’s quite a pleasing effort and Alicia Keys unveils Keys.

Rounding out today’s drops are projects from Dai Burger, Russ, Birdman x NBA Youngboy, Drakeo The Ruler, 2KBaby and Hotboii.
