August 28 will mark the most jam-packed music release date of the year.
With artists racing to meet the Recording Academy’s updated August 31 cutoff for consideration at GRAMMYs 2021, some of music’s biggest acts circled the last Friday before the deadline to release their most highly anticipated offerings respectively.
In addition to Katy Perry delivering her long-awaited fifth studio album, ‘Smile,’ fellow Pop songstress Dua Lipa is breathing new life into her most recent hit LP – ‘Club Nostalgia’ – by unveiling its deluxe edition (featuring appearances from Queen of Pop Madonna, Missy Elliott, and more). She’s not the only one; fellow GRAMMY winner JoJo is reimagining her fourth studio album, ‘Good to Know,’ with a re-release set for the same date.
While they’re all set to duke it out on the Billboard 200 with the likes of Jaden Smith, Disclosure and Toni Braxton – all of whom drop new albums tomorrow – the content housed on their projects will challenge new singles from BLACKPINK (featuring Selena Gomez), Calvin Harris (featuring The Weeknd), Ty Dolla $ign (featuring Nicki Minaj), and more for top billing on the Billboard Hot 100.
