March

÷ by Ed Sheeran
Genre: Pop

You don’t need us to tell you Ed Sheeran came out with new music this year; “Shape of You” became a hit as soon as it was released and the song has been on every radio station ever since. The newest folk pop album by the songwriter also included the other breakout hit, “Castle On The Hill.”

You’re Not As _____ As You Think by Sorority Noise
Genre: Emo Rock

A brutally honest look at loss, mortality, and self-reflection, You’re Not As _____ As You Think is Sorority Noise at their finest. Receiving high praise from fans and critics alike, the album is a crescendo of emotion that manifests itself through high-energy guitar driven tracks.

More Life by Drake
Genre: Hip-Hop

It’s a playlist, not an album. At least, that’s what Drake had to say about his 22-track-long release. Although some critics of the format still disagree, it’s safe to say this was one of the most influential releases of the year with hits like “Fake Love” and “Gyalchester,” among others.
