Happy New Year, Mixers! The year is 2016. Here's to another great year for music. 2015 provided us with so many hits, great albums, surprising comebacks and interesting new artists. I just can't wait to find out what 2016 will bring.
I'm ready for my favourite artist to take back the spotlight. With her upcoming residency, the farewell season of American Idol and -most important- new music just around the corner, I have a feeling that 2016 will be the year of Jennifer Lopez
. I can't wait to see what she's coming up with. Also, I believe this year a new Christina Aguilera
album will finally see the light of day. Super excited about that one, as it's been way too long. Also, Nelly Furtado
has confirmed she's finished recording her new record. Bring it, baby!
2016 could also be the year that the label will finally release the long-awaited posthumous Aaliyah
album. As a big Aaliyah fan, I just can't wait to hear her voice on 'new' material. I just hope they will handle the project with a lot of care and respect. Also, I'm really excited about the second comeback of All Saints
. I hope they will do it right this time.
After seeing her live in Amsterdam last year, I've instantly become a Tinashe
fan. She's a great artist who can both sing and dance. A true entertainer. I'm impatiently waiting for the new album 'Joyride' to arrive. Also impatient for new albums by Azealia Banks
(mixtape at least, please?), Toni Braxton
(she promised new music), [/b]Michelle Branch[/b] (how soon is 'soon'?), Red Hot Chili Peppers
(hurry, hurry), Shakira
(what about another Fifa anthem?), Enrique Iglesias
(latin, upbeat, sexy please), Beyoncé
(queen), Paulina Rubio
(when is she following up 'Mi Nuevo Vicio'?), TLC
(there's still hope), Lady Gaga
(she's going to slay so hard) and many more.
2016 will a good musical year for me, as I've already planned to go to some great concerts. I'm going to see Marina & The Diamonds
again (yass!), Halsey
(yasss!), Years & Years
(yassss!), Janet Jackson
(OMG yas!) and the one and only Mariah Carey
I can't wait.
There's some artists that are going to have their big breakthrough this year, no doubt. I'm excited for some new artists to finally claim their spot
in the world of music. I will definitely keep an eye out for Bebe Rexha
who's finally going to release her debut album after writing many pop hits for others. I'm also excited for Sofi de la Torre
(Spanish delight), Kehlani
(Rihanna meets Nelly Furtado meets M.I.A.), Tkay Maidza
(Azealia Banks from Down Under) and Bibi Bourelly
(chick behind Rihanna's 'Bitch Better Have My Money'). To name a few. 2016 will be great.
