As the world slowly, but surely returns to normal, expect to see more and more artists not only hop to make up for lost time but also race to meet the Recording Academy’s updated August 31 cutoff for consideration at GRAMMYs 2022.
Evidence of this came Friday (June 11), which has marked the most jam-packed music release date of the year to date.
A Hip Hop-heavy heap of hopeful hits, Migos led the charge by delivering their long-awaited fourth studio album, ‘Culture III’ (the latest installment in the ‘Culture’ series). Elsewhere, femcees ran the show as Megan Thee Stallion and Doja Cat dropped new gems while Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, and Latto served as features on male-led Rap releases.
In the Pop realm, Jessie J returned with her banging single, ‘I Want Love,’ while the likes of Ava Max, Kylie Minogue, Bebe Rexha, Lorde, and Maroon 5 all made their respective presences felt across the new music scene.
