Best Albums to Listen to Coming Into the New Year

In need of some new albums to explore? Here are my recent favorites.

Many people classify teens as people who love blasting music and blocking everyone out, and I am no exception to this classification. My life revolves around music, I can’t go a day without listening to music. In many ways, music is my therapy, it shows you that others feel the same thing, and allows you to connect with the artist. This is a list of my favorite albums and what songs I like to listen to on those albums. Some are older than others but I still listen to these all the time. Not everyone has the same taste in music, but all of these are albums I highly recommend.

'Dangerous Woman' by Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande is my absolute favorite artist and I still love listening to her old albums. I love “Leave Me Lonely.” 

My favorite part of the song is:

“So when you walk out that door / Don’t you come back no more / My heart has had enough of the give and take / And as much as I want you to stay.”

'Sweetener' by Ariana Grande

I know that this album is super popular and everyone has a different opinion on what song is the best, personally my favorite is “Everytime.”

'East Atlantic Love Letter' by 6lack

I love a lot of the songs on this album, but my favorite is “Switch.” I feel like 6lack provides a different sound from what I usually listen to, and I greatly enjoy it.

'Reputation' by Taylor Swift

My favorite song on this album is “Don’t Blame Me.” 

My favorite part is:

For you, I would cross the line / I would waste my time / I would lose my mind / They say she's gone too far this time / Don't blame me, love made me crazy / If it doesn't, you ain't doin' it right / Lord, save me, my drug is my baby / I'd be usin' for the rest of my life

'Hopeless Fountain Kingdom' by Halsey

This album has been consistently in my rotation ever since it came out, I like listening to “100 Letters,” “Heaven in hiding”, “Lie”, and “Walls Could Talk.”

'Don't Smile at Me' by Billie Eilish

I feel like this album has blown up recently, especially among teenagers even though it came out around a year and a half ago. My favorite song on this album is “Watch.”

'Bouquet' by The Chainsmokers

I like coming back to this album because it puts me in a good mood. Since this album was made when the Chainsmokers were just starting out, there are only five songs on it. I like listening to all of them but if I were to pick one I would pick “New York City.”

'Tell Me You Love Me' by Demi Lovato

This album is one that I always go back to, there are so many songs on this album that fit into my mood. My favorite on this album is “You Don’t Do it for Me Anymore.”

'Derrival' by Derrival

This album is one that I came across on accident, I like some songs more than others but I enjoy “Found Out” and “Ice Cream.”

'Back from the Edge' by James Arthur

Every time I'm in an upset mood, I come to this album, I like listening to “Safe Inside” and “Trainwreck.”

'Memories...Do Not Open' by The Chainsmokers

I went through a faze when I was obsessed with the Chainsmokers and would listen to this album 24/7. My favorite songs on this album are “It Won’t Kill Ya” and “My Type.”

'Flicker' by Niall Horan

I just started listening to this album and one of my new favorites is “Too Much to Ask.”

'Sunset Season' by Conan Gray

“Generation Why” is one of the best songs on this album, it was recommended to me by a friend and I greatly enjoy it.
