The past couple of months have been busy for many artists. Coming out of a pandemic, many artists have had the time  to become creative and produce work that they are truly passionate about. During quarantine for example, Taylor Swift was able to produce two studio albums “folklore” and “Evermore” which her fans greatly appreciated. But the artists who have hit the charts most recently include Adele, Jack Harlow & Doja Cat. There have been many collaborations between artists, with a majority of their work reaching the charts. The most popular albums that our generation is favoriting and hyping up include:

Happier Than Ever – Billie Elilish

This album was released at the end of July, and has over one hundred and thirteen million streams of just this album alone. With her most popular song being “Happier Than Ever”, Eilish’s album is described as “downright heroic, and the work of an artist refusing to stay still…” according to the Rolling Stone. At only nineteen years old, she has a total of 31 phenomenal songs and many more to come.

30 – Adele

This album is set to release on November 19, after Adele’s six year break. The title of the album is to signify the age of which she wrote the album, and all of the memories and importance that the age entailed for her. She revealed a sneak peak of her album, by releasing her song “Easy On Me” with over one hundred and eighty-nine million streams already.


Released on September 17, 2021, this hit album has stayed on the top songs chart, according to Spotify. The album includes fifteen new recorded songs, with “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)” having over one billion streams. This popular creation has won three MTV Video awards, and has raised over $100,000 for charity. Montero is available at the usual streaming suspects such as Apple Music, Amazon Music Tidal, Spotify, Soundcloud, Deezer, and Audio Mack.

Red (Taylor’s Version) – Taylor Swift

This exciting new album is an exciting release for fellow Swifties. The re-recording of her past albums may confuse some people, but excites those who have been following her tracks. In a new contract that she has signed, she is assuring that she has full ownership of her music, which requires her re-recording her albums in order to receive the profit. Not only is she including her current songs, she is also adding new music to old albums. Be sure to stream Red (Taylor’s Version) on November 12th (and check on your fellow Swiftie friends).
