Here is our list of the most anticipated albums hopefully to come in 2018.
1. Nicki Minaj
Though nothing is officially confirmed, in an interview with T Magazine, rapper promised that her next project will usher in an era that will be ‘super, super iconic.’ We can only hope deets for her fourth studio album will drop in 2018.
@NickiMinaj is working on her fourth studio album, the title of which is, for now, a well-kept secret but is “super, super iconic.” “This album is everything in my life coming full circle and me being truly, genuinely happy. It feels almost like a celebration,” she says. “Now, I can tell you guys what happened for the last two years of my life. I know who I am. I am getting Nicki Minaj figured out with this album and I’m loving her.” It took a long time for her to get to a place of confidence and trusting in her instincts, and it hasn’t been without hurdles and challenges along the way. But, ever since she turned her gift into a career, it’s been nothing but a checklist of milestones.

2. Cardi B
Cardi is still riding on the success of ‘Bodak Yellow’ and her newest ‘Bartier Cardi’ single, so we are definitely looking forward to see the release of her debut album. Since dropping her massive collabs with G_Eazy, Migos, and now 21 Savage, Cardi is taking her time to make sure her next work is a success.
3. ScHoolboy Q
In September 2017, ScHoolboy Q posted a video on Instagram claiming his album was 90% done. It’s safe to say that fans won’t have to wait that much longer for his fifth album.
4. A$AP Rocky
Rocky has been claiming to release a new album for a few months now. In an interview with GQ Style, back in October 2017 he said, “My new album is really about testing new sounds. People are scared to test new sounds, so they go with what’s current ’cause it’s the easy thing to do.” Let’s hope 2018 brings some new music-like ASAP.
5. Kayne West
Yeezy has been pretty silent this year on social media and on public outings. After cancelling his Saint Pablo Tour the rapper had been MIA, but during a recent interview, Pusha T confirmed that Kayne was back in the studio working on a new album. Though nothing official has been confirmed we can only hope Kayne has something to say in 2018.
It’s slowly approaching one year since Drizzy dropped his More Life effort and since his ‘Boy Meets World’ tour has finally come to an end, new music should definitely be on the horizon for the Toronto native. Drake just released a new collab on Lil Wayne’s Dedication 6 mixtape and short snippets of new music from the rapper also hit the net this week. OVO season is near.
