It's the start of a new year. What does 2015 hold for us? 

Some really effin' incredible albums to look forward to. We're already squirming in our seats just thinking about them. 

Peep the top 5 most anticipated albums of this year:

 

Kanye West

Kanye did say in his GQ Interview last summer that he was hoping to have his follow-up to the game-changing Yeezus album in the fall of 2014. Once September rolled around, and then October, then November, and still no new Kanye, we knew we'd have to wait until the new year for the album. It's now 2015 and we can definitely expect a new Kanye album coming. 

 

Drake

Drake announced the title of his upcoming album Views From the 6 last July and promised fans that the new new would be dropping in 2015. Always good to his fans, he didn't keep us waiting too long without new material. He dropped a number of tracks including the "Tuesday" remix to "0 to 100". The fact that he was nominated for a GRAMMY without even releasing an album proves he is currently the hottest rapper in the game. 

 

Rihanna

Okay, we've heard more about Rihanna's eighth studio album #R8 so much that we just need the damn thing now. There were rumors that the album was going to come out at the end of last year, but of course, nothing. Don't fret, because we can feel it. #R8 will be coming soon enough.

 

Justin Bieber

Justin hasn't released an album in nearly two years, and we've heard that he's been in the studio with Michael Jackson's son Prince Jackson. He also said in an interview at Burbank's West Coast Customs that this may be a new musical era for him. He's growing up as an artist and finding himself as a man. Oooooh, kill 'em!

 

Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey just revealed in an interview that her forthcoming album is called Honeymoon, and it's almost done. She's already nine songs deep, so we can most likely expect to see Honeymoon drop within this year. You can expect it to sound more like her first two albums Born to Die and Paradise, with a "noirish" feel. 

 

What album are you most looking forward to this year? Any of the ones we mentioned? Or did we forget to include any?
