8 New Hip-Hop & R&B Albums You Should Be Listening To (Week of November 4)

Drake, 21 Savage, Lecrae, Ye Ali, and Alicia Keys have released new albums. We also have our eye on Kenyon Dixon who released a deluxe edition of ‘Closer.’

Drake and 21 Savage’s album Her Loss has been on the tips of everyone’s tongues this week. Released at midnight, the 16-track collab album features some coverage of some topics that we thought were off limits: Megan Thee Stallion and Serena Williams. The backlash was swift. Previously announced in the “Jimmy Cooks” video Her Loss features production from Tay Keith, Lil Yachty, Metro Boomin, Noah “40” Shebib, and more. Travis Scott is the sole feature.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has been one of the buzziest movies of 2022. The celebrity-studded soundtrack is finally out – it features Rihanna, Burna Boy, Tems, Stormzy, CKay, and more. The movie hits theaters soon. Boldy James links up with Futurewave on Mr. Ten 08. Ye Ali drops Private Suite 4: The Mixtape. Kwaku Asante shares Wanderlust. Lecrae’s Church Clothes 4 surfaces. We’re giving Kenyon Dixon‘s Closer (Deluxe) a spin this weekend too. 

Lastly, Alicia Keys releases Santa Baby.
