The Vamps "Missing you" Released April 19th,2019

This has to be one the Vamps most mature bodies of work. Now I'm kind of biased because I've been a huge fan since I was younger, but all I know is that this EP is incredible. Most people think of a "Boyband" when they hear the name the Vamps, but that's truly not the case. They've grown into such incredible musicians over the years. This EP exceeded my expectations, this is a great listen through from top to bottom! I highly recommend it to anyone who likes alternative pop!!

Khalid "Free Spirit" Released April 5th, 2019

All you need to know is that as of a week ago, Khalid is officially the number one most streamed artist in the world on Spotify, at 50,043,332 monthly listeners. "Free Spirit" is one of the best albums I've listened to in a very long time, it's so concise and flows beautifully that you could listen to it forever and ever. Compared to "American teen" statistically Khalid is charting once again! But musically, this album is insane! It's unlike anything else I've ever heard and it blends pop and R&B so effortlessly! It even has a collab with John Mayer!! JOHN MAYER!!!! It's crazy to see how much Khalid has blown up in such a short period of time! Make sure to see Khalid on his almost SOLD OUT ARENA TOUR THIS SUMMER!!!!!

Oliva O'Brien "Was it even real?" Released on April 26th, 2019

I have no words for how much I adore and am obsessed with this album. Olivia O'Brien since the day she came into the music industry, has been the master of being able to capture fans with her deep and descriptive lyrics and killer vocals. Seeing Olivia go from nothing to THIS, shows just how talented and dedicated she is not only as an artist but as a human being. "Was it even real" is absolutely magnificent in every shape and from, you get to truly be immersed into the purple world of Olivia O'Brien.

BLACKBEAR "Anonymous" Released on April 26th, 2019

It's been two years since his last major project, and the fans have been awaiting this album so much that after it's release twitter went wild! There's just something about Blackbear's music being so unique and a perfect mix of multiple genres that no matter what your taste, you'll at last like one of his songs. This album is filled with so many songs that feature bear's vocals in a light that previous albums didn't do the justice of. This album tells a story so vivid you feel like you're living it with him. I highly suggest to listen to this album and if you can see him live on tour this summer, DO IT!
