When thinking about the hip-hop album of the year no other album comes to mind other than Travis Scott’s ASTROWORLD. It gave fans an experience that goes beyond music. The album serves as an ode to Houston culture. It’s a seamless collection of experiences that take you on a roller coaster ride. With the release of the album, Travis showed the promise we saw in him since the release of Rodeo.
With Ella Mai gaining so much attention, more international R&B artists are starting to rise here in the states. One particular artist by the name of Nao is beginning to take advantage of the opportunity. Her album Saturn seems to take after SZA’s CTRL by highlighting the secondary coming-of-age that occurs in your late 20s. This alone gives the album an appeal to what most listeners love. Nao is going to do well here as an artist and I’m going to tell you why.
With his third studio album ASTROWORLD, Travis has given us some of his best music to date. It just seems like all the experimental things he’s been doing over the last two albums have finally paid off and now we are receiving the fruits of his labor. On the album, Travis showcased his production and curation skills as he has put together some of the industry’s biggest names in hip-hop to help create this album. The album also served as a tribute to his hometown of Houston.
