2015: Albums of the year: Part 3!!

There were a lot of albums this year so I decided to do this post in 3 parts, so these are the albums I loved in the last quarter of the year. Enjoy x

The Documentary 2 - The Game
The Game always finds a way to make a good album, though I didn't like 'Jesus Piece'. Ten years after the first Documentary, the sequel had 38songs (split into 2) with incredible feature like 'Nas''Lil Wayne''Busta' and  many more. Game told us about Compton, it is tribute to old school hiphop and also reminds us of how good the first was. I personally think he is one of the best lyricists today and'Life' is probably my favourite!

I changed a lot - Dj Khaled
As the King of anthems and King of snapchat, I didn't expect anything different from this album. It was a typical Khaled album with a lot of features and as usual his screams.. The album already had about 5 singles released including 'They Don't Love You No More''How Many Times', 'Hold You Down', and my two favourites 'Gold Slugs' and 'You Mine'. It is a good album but it not my favourite from him. 

Revival - Selena Gomez
From Disney to performing at the VSFS (yes I was impressed). This album exhibits Selena's personality, songs ranged from flirty to past stories. With singles like 'Good For You' and my favourite 'Same Old Love', she proved on this album that she's all grown up and not a Disney kid!

General Admission - MGK
A friend introduced me to 'Lace Up' and I instantly fell in love with his music. This album tells a story about his success, failure life and death. Though it was meant to be a typical mainstream album, MGK found a way to make it typical street like rap album (not too mainstream). The album shows you he's an upcoming artist with good lyricism best yet a survivor of the struggles of life!

Purpose - Justin Beiber
In 2014, most headlines on JB were not music related and mainly negative but this album has him redeem himself! The album exhibits maturity and for someone like me who isn't a Belieber but been a fan since the 'Baby' days, the album has sincerity through all songs and also love, heartbreak and apology. He has features from Travis Scott, Big Sean and more.. Yes he has had his low moments but we all mistakes and I'm sure I'm not the only who likes the redeemed and mature Justin!!

Free TC - Ty Dolla $ign
This album talks about Ty's family, relationships and a tribute to LA. As usual he has hooks that are catchy, stories about sex and the album has good features. I'm still not sure if Ty is a rapper or singer but this album sounds R&B. 'Miracle/Whenever' talks about his brother in jail whose name is part of the title and even has the brother talking on the phone. I hated the single 'Blase' but the album overall is good!

MMM - Puff Daddy
Old school Puffy is back with a banger, showing all this young ones how it's done. Last time we had anything like this from Puff was probably 'The Saga Continues'. Still one of the best producers in the game and a successful businessman, it seems like Diddy hasn't forgotten how to make a good album with good features. It talks about Harlem and his success; since the release of 'Finna get Loose' I was looking forward to this and I have to say I wasn't disappointed! 

Late Nights: The Album - Jeremih
Jeremih has been featured on soo many songs which made me wonder if this will ever be released. Afte'Birthday SexI never thought he will have any good songs. As expected it was a typical Jeremih album i.e. Mainly about women and sex so there's really not much to say about it.. Overall the album had good features and good songs.

When It's Dark Out - G-Eazy
First time I found out about G-Eazy was when he released 'Tumblr Girls' and honestly I didn't bother giving him a chance, Lool. A few people convinced my that he was good so I tried to give him a listen, and to my surprise I actually love this album (maybe I should have given him a chance earlier). 

Incase you never read the first and second!

2015 was a good year for music, can't wait to see what 2016 has to offer!
