Welcome to 4th quarter!
We thought August 28 was the most jam-packed music release date of the year (due to many acts rushing to meet the GRAMMY eligibility deadline), but boy were we wrong! October 2 brought it with a plethora of Pop, Hip Hop, and R&B gems to kick off the last quarter of 2020.
While the likes of BLACKPINK delivered their highly anticipated new LP ‘The Album’ (click here to stream), Bryson Tiller unveiled ‘Anniversary’ (click here to stream) – his first studio effort since 2017. The project’s title acts as an ode to self of sorts as it arrived exactly 5 years after the premiere of his debut, ‘TrapSoul.’
Speaking of odes to self, Mariah Carey – just days after the release of her long-awaited memoir ‘The Meaning of Mariah Carey’ – gave fans a peak inside her prized vault by unleashing a set of previously unreleased tunes in a compilation album titled ‘The Rarities’ (click here to stream).
Those projects will duke it out for the top spot on the Billboard 200, but the Hot 100 has the fiercest competition as it will not only contain gems from the previously mentioned LPs but also rival new songs from Dua Lipa, Shawn Mendes, Megan Thee Stallion, Jason Derulo, and many more for top billing.
With this delicious buffet of new music laid out for consumption, That Grape Juice wants to know:
Who will get your coins (or streams) in the all-star battle?
