5. Metro Boomin’s Heroes & Villains

Pink, real name Alecia Beth Moore Hart, has had an illustrious career as a pop singer. Since 2003 she released her first studio album and recently celebrated the release of her eighth full-length album - Hurts 2B Human - to great acclaim.

The singer had an acclaimed tour, traveling the globe on her Beautiful Trauma Tour. With 156 dates across 18 countries and 3 million tickets sold worldwide, this 156-date trek proved a huge success for her.

Metro Boomin is known for his signature psychedelic trap and star-studded singles, but on Heroes & Villains (Villains Version), the platinum-certified rapper offers something more complex. This sonic experiment blurs the line between streamable entertainment and world building, featuring stars like Future, Gunna, Chris Brown, Travis Scott and Young Thug (who is serving time in prison).

6. Bad Bunny’s Un Verano Sin Ti

Bad Bunny will receive the IFPI Global Chart Award for 2022 for his fifth album Un Verano Sin Ti (A Summer Without You), which made an immediate impact on international music with 13 weeks at the top of Billboard's album chart. This record became Spanish-language music's first Grammy nomination and enjoyed huge streaming success in America.

Bad Bunny stood against misogyny and homophobia in Latin trap music with her unapologetic politics and experimental approach. As one of the first rappers to embrace gender representation and defiant music that challenges established norms, Bad Bunny broke through this barrier.

His latest full-length, Un Verano Sin Ti, is his most personal and intimate record to date. It showcases Bad Bunny's impressive flow and pop sensibility combined with hyperlocal touchpoints to cultivate his music's Boricua character at every turn. The record draws inspiration from bachata, bomba, merengue, dembow and reggaeton greats such as Plan B's Chencho Corleone and Tony Dize - both legends in this genre.

7. Wallen’s Dangerous: The Double Album

If you've ever watched Morgan Wallen's videos on TikTok, then you know he has an irresistible charisma and drops red flags to let you know he might be trouble. Yet ultimately he gets your girl and makes amends. He may not be your typical country singer but he's quickly becoming one of the fastest-rising young stars in mainstream country music.

Dangerous: The Double Album, Wallen's sophomore release, is filled with songs about beer, bars and whiskey that draw inspiration from his turbulent early career. This expansive 30-track double album serves as a testament to both what country fans originally loved about him as an artist as well as how he has matured over time.

The opening track, "More Than My Hometown," is a timeless country song designed to appeal to radio playlists. Meanwhile, Shane McAnally's co-written "7 Summers" finds Wallen daydreaming about an unrequited love in front of an open door. While its melody may be sweet enough for mainstream country listeners, its undertone of knowing anger makes it perfect for those who like to get rowdy.

8. Drake & 21 Savage’s Her Loss

Drake's best rap songs until this summer showcased his appreciation of various hip-hop styles. From his early hits to What a Time to be Alive's club jams and more recent tracks like "Jimmy Cooks," Drake's lyrics showcased appreciation of various eras.

He enjoys this aesthetic and its attendant pleasures, but it can also lead him into an emotional landscape that's less interested in romantic songs than spiteful snark. These qualities were evident on Her Loss, a joint project between Drake and 21 Savage that they announced towards the end of "Jimmy Cooks."

After last year's chart-topping Certified Lover Boy, Drake and 21 Savage have been working to craft some new music. Their first joint LP, Her Loss, is their attempt at crafting a cohesive body of work that's more distinctively Drake than it was on "Jimmy Cooks."
