A new year means more music for music lovers and these 5 female artists are set to drop albums in 2019.
These days, women rule pop music, and it’s the talented solo females who are going to keep their winning streak going with new albums in 2019. Sure, there are men who are also making excellent art in what can be called the “pop” music space but looking forward, it’s the women who have the public the most excited about what’s to come, and they’re sure to deliver some incredible new music in the coming months.
Here’s a look at eight of the most anticipated pop albums likely arriving in 2019.
Ariana Grande – Thank U, Next
Ariana Grande ‘s latest album Sweetener started at No. 1 with ease. According to Forbes ‘ “Thank U, Next” debuted at No. 1 and the song is reportedly both the lead single and the title track of Grande’s upcoming fifth full-length, which was initially expected by the end of 2018, but is expected in 2019 instead.’
Avril Lavigne – Head Above Water
After a long hiatus, Avril Lavigne returned into the music scene late 2018 with her first taste of what’s to come with her single “Head Above Water,” surprising fans with the comeback track. Switching up her style of music, the Canadian singer-songwriter’s new material is much more mature, and it finally sees her trying something completely new. Due in February, ‘Head Above Water’ will be Lavigne’s sixth full-length.
Lady Gaga – Enigma
Taking a break from music, Gaga took time to indulge her acting with several movies including the Academy Award-winning “A Star Is Born”. According to Forbes, “Lady Gaga has been busy prepping the next era of her career, which may see her return to the electro-pop that made her a global superstar. From the moment she revealed the name of her upcoming Las Vegas residency was to be called Enigma, fans took that as a sign that a forthcoming album would bear the same title, and a number of social media hints dropped by the pop icon since have only backed up that assumption.”
Meghan Trainor – Treat Myself
Newlywed Meghan Trainor’s third full-length Treat Myself was originally supposed to come out in mid-2018. But after a series of poorly performing releases including “No Excuses,” “Let You Be Right” and “Can’t Dance” the album was pushed to early 2019. Forbes stated, “the album now has a street date of January 25, and with a new single entitled “Genetics” supposedly arriving sometime before that, it seems like Trainor has one more shot at making waves before the title drops.”
The Queen of Pop hasn’t shied away when talking about her next album, and at one point, it even seemed like it might arrive at some point in 2018, though that didn’t end up being the case. The untitled effort, her fourteenth proper studio album, will be her first in four years.
Other female artists to look out for if they will be dropping albums in 2019 include, Adele, Rihanna, Ellie Goulding, Halsey, and Selena Gomez.
