ANTI is coming; we have no idea when, but it’s coming. We also have no idea if it will feature all three previously released singles—“FourFiveSeconds,” “Bitch Better Have My Money” and “American Oxygen”—or none of them. What we do know is that the ANTI world tour is kicking off on Feb. 26.
“We really worked very, very hard on this album, and we wanted to make sure it was perfect, especially coming after Reflection,” Camila Cabello told Fuse in November. The best way to ensure success in pop music? Hire Max Martin, who worked with the girl group for the first time on #5H2.
After splitting with One Direction and signing with RCA Records, hopes are high for Zayn’s first solo shot, expected to be released in the first half of the year. An R&B-leaning sound is also in the cards, per Malik’s revealing Fader cover story.
“I've been working on it the whole time & in 2016 you will hear it,” Sky Ferreira recently wrote of her new music on Instagram. That’s great, because Night Time, My Time was an essential listen, and we need to hear more from this boundary-pushing artist.
Last month, Tegan and Sara announced that they had finished recording the follow-up to 2013’s wondrous Heartthrob, which will likely continue down the pop rabbit hole the long-running sister duo fell down last time around. No release date yet, but it couldn’t come soon enough.
The follow-up to 1000 Forms of Fear is a concept album featuring songs that Sia wrote for other artists but ended up keeping for her own use. “Alive,” originally designed for Adele, is the lead single; meanwhile, “Reaper” was co-written and co-produced by Kanye West.
“Working hard and hardly working...new album...wheeeee!” Brit tweeted in November, excitedly updating fans on #B9. The pop princess has been busy in Las Vegas, but that doesn’t quiet the anticipation for some new music.
The former JoBro broke out with his solo singles “Jealous” and “Chains,” and “Levels” promises big things for his next full-length. Hopefully we’ll have some new music by the time his summer tour with Demi Lovato kicks off.
JoJo told us last month that she’s “essentially wrapping things up” on her long-awaited third album, which will be her first on Atlantic Records. Jo previewed her updated sound with three singles (or a “tringle” for the cool kids) last summer.
