Music fans have been thoroughly spoiled this year. Lorde broke her four–year silence since her last critically acclaimed album, Melodrama, which inflated our excitement with fast–paced tracks like “Green Light” and brought us crashing down to earth with piercing ballads like “Liability.” Her latest album Solar Power, released in August 2021, took a different approach from her past repertoire—and while not all Lorde fans enjoyed the shift, many indulged in the excitement of new releases.

Hollywood has long perfected its fulfillment of “so nice they made it twice” movie culture with years upon years of unnecessary reboots.

During the COVID–19 lockdown in 2020, glittery pink cowboy hats silently but suddenly cropped up as the latest party accessory. Pinterest fashionistas may already be familiar with the cutesy cowboy aesthetic since Lily–Rose Depp donned one back in 2017, but the Western trend has more recently been adopted by the masses. Even though the pink cowboy hat’s rapid rise and fall feels normal considering the nature of ephemeral modern trends, the glamorization of a traditionally–rugged aesthetic poses the questions: Why cowboys, and why now?

Given all of her accomplishments—her body is the least interesting thing about her. So why can’t people stop talking about it?
At the peak of my pandemic boredom, I decided to re–watch Criminal Minds. I had first started streaming the iconic show, which follows members of the esteemed Behavioral Analysis Unit of the FBI, in middle school. And while I was far too young to be following the adventures of Aaron Hotchner, Spencer Reid, Derek Morgan, and co. as they apprehended some of the most notorious criminals in their fictional universe, I couldn’t help but remain invested in the high–paced episodes. After a 15–season long run on CBS, a reboot of Criminal Minds is now set to air on Paramount+.

It's rare for an emerging pop star to set the Spotify record for most streams in a day for a non–holiday track and then return to break it just a few months later with a debut album. It's even more unlikely that it is an eighteen–year–old can manage to throw everyone, no matter their age, back into the throes of high school romance in all of its angsty glory.
When J. Cole finished his first mixtape over a decade ago, he camped outside Jay–Z’s studio for hours to get a chance to see one of his inspirations. When Jay–Z finally saw him, decorated CD in hand, Cole says: “He just looked at me like, almost disgusted.” That moment of rejection would have deterred many aspiring artists from forging on—but not Cole. Nights sneaking into New York recording studios and Cole’s pure perseverance finally paid off when his mixtapes eventually caught the attention of Roc Nation, Jay–Z’s very own label, which signed him in 2009.
YouTube rocketed a young, fresh–faced Justin Bieber to the forefront of pop culture and music in 2009. Vine produced Shawn Mendes, who went from seven–second song cover videos to four full–length albums. Now, TikTok is offering … Addison Rae?
Fiona Apple is an entertainment industry's nightmare, a stubborn embodiment of unyielding originality—even when she raises eyebrows. Decades after she first rose to fame for her debut album Tidal, Apple's critically acclaimed fifth studio album, Fetch the Bolt Cutters, garnered three nominations at the 2021 Grammys. Besting the likes of indie darling Phoebe Bridgers to win Best Alternative Music Album, Apple emerged from an eight–year music hiatus with a bang—and yet decided to skip the ceremony altogether.
It's been over five years since Julien Baker first captured music critics' attention with her 2015 debut album, Sprained Ankle. Sparse instrumentation scattered around Baker's delicate voice in her first LP: Her existential musings were so lonely and fragile that the only way to listen without shattering her words was to hold your breath. Now, with a few more albums under her belt—including one with Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Daucus in the indie supergroup boygenius—Baker returns to themes of faith, self–destructive behavior, and substance abuse in her third album, Little Oblivions.
Paramore's lead singer Hayley Williams is no stranger to emotional pain, and she’s not afraid to bear it all on her sophomore solo album, FLOWERS for VASES / descansos. Williams’ album explores the dissolution of her decade–long relationship with guitarist Chad Gilbert, compounded by the isolation of quarantine and COVID–19 life. It’s only the second time we have heard her sing since Paramore’s last album, 2017's After Laughter, but the group's spunky pop sound in “Rose–Colored Boy” has metamorphosed into a haunting indie reincarnation for Williams' solo endeavor in tracks like “Find Me Here.”
“We were both young when I first saw you” is a fitting beginning to Taylor Swift’s journey of re–recording her old catalog of music, from debut album Taylor Swift to reputation. Last week, in a surprise announcement on Good Morning America, Swift revealed she had finished recording her second studio album, Fearless, and would be releasing it “soon.” Midnight of that day, Swift dropped “Love Story (Taylor’s version),” featuring new album art that fits more appropriately into her folklore and evermore era. Swift also announced that she'd include six never–before–released songs from the 2008 album's sessions.
We've all heard "drivers license," Olivia Rodrigo's record–shattering single, and we've all probably heard at least a little bit about its accompanying love triangle. After its release earlier this year, fans became detectives, trying to decipher all the clues Rodrigo included regarding her former relationship with co–star Joshua Bassett and his new girlfriend, actress and singer Sabrina Carpenter. Written about the end of Rodrigo's relationship, "drivers license" features a dramatic bridge and an even more alluring backstory.
Earlier this month, Street featured Arlo Parks' debut album as one of our most anticipated new releases of 2021. Slated to open for Paramore artist Hayley Williams before COVID–19 restrictions canceled the tour, Parks had garnered buzz for the handful of singles she released over the last few years as she worked on her first LP. Showcasing poignant lyricism and dreamy vocals in tracks like “Cola,” Parks’ singles inflated expectations for her first full–length project, Collapsed in Sunbeams—and she’s somehow surpassed them.
