Question Obsession: Future's So Bright...Gotta Wear Shades

Thursday, January 22, 2009

Awhile back I posted about who I was waiting on pins and needles for new albums I have come to grips that that particular list has grown bigger than its britches. With that random news about D'Angelo surfacing, U2 descending down on us again and the remembrance that Christina Aguilera is shooting to release something in '09 (I totally forgot...that's how much "Keeps Gettin' Better" affected me), I have more reasons to mark up my calendar with release dates from some of my favorite and newly discovered artists who will be making my year much more bearable. Well, I've yapped and gushed it's your turn. So Adventurers...

What albums/artists or bands are you hoping to see grace the charts or just pop out of nowhere in 2009?

As always, leave your responses in comments and we'll get the discussion going!


  1. There are a few that I'd like to see release something, a few of my favourites are said to be releasing something anyway, like:

    Mamas Gun
    Nate James
    Melinda Doolittle

    But the ones I'd also like to see grace us with something new are:

    Jill Scott
    Teedra Moses
    Cherry BlackStone
    Terri Walker
    Guy Sebastian
    Craig David (with something decent though, his last two studio album were a little disappointing)
    Mary J. Blige
    Corinne Bailey Rae (I know that she's had a tough time over the past year, bless her)
    Chrisette Michele
    Jazmine Sullivan (release a compilation of stuff she's recorded way back, now that would be dope)
    Janelle Monae
    Backstreet Boys
    Boyz II Men
    Maxwell (I need 'Pretty Wings' in full and this album has been mentioned for donkeys years now)

    There might be more, but I think that's a big enough list for now. Haha!

  2. TONS of stuff, but what I'm really, really expecting this year are stuff from the three US boybands(NLT, V Factory and Varsity Fanclub), Natalie Bassingthwaighte since her two singles are just brilliant, Westlife because I didn't get anything new from them last year(I survived! Yay!), JLS because I'm waiting to see if Louis will turn them into another Westlife(which I think he will..), JoJo's new album because it's been three years since 'The High Road' and new stuff from a girl called Pixie Lott, she's brilliant. haha.

    There's tones more, but those are the ones that I will die for if they don't come out this year.

  3. Guy Sebastian has two albums coming up in 2009 with the US release of The Memphis Album with 4 originals that John Mayer has played and sung on and an originals album for Australian release.

    I like most of your list and also Natalie Bassingthwaight and it would be great to see an album from CDB this year!

  4. Chrisette Michele and whitney big time whitney fan!!
