After much delay, genre–bending artist FKA twigs released MAGDALENE on Nov. 8, her first album in four years. Between MAGDALENE and her last album, M3LL155X EP, not only did twigs and now ex–fiancé Robert Pattinson break up, but she also had six fibroid tumors removed from her uterus last winter.
In 2008, NPR’s All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen and NPR music editor Stephen Thompson came back from a show frustrated that they couldn’t hear the concert over the noisy crowd. Thompson then joked that the musician should have just performed at Boilen’s desk at the NPR Music office in Washington D.C. Just a month later, Boilen arranged for the singer, Laura Gibson, to perform at his desk. Thus, NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts was created.
After teasing the release of Yandhi more than a year ago, dragging it out for months, abandoning it, then ignoring the promised release of his new album on Sept. 27, Kanye finally released his ninth studio album, Jesus Is King, on Friday at noon. The album is 27 minutes long and features 11 songs, none of which have explicit lyrics.
Just two and a half years ago, Laetitia Tamko debuted under the name Vagabon with her album Infinite Worlds, which received overwhelmingly positive critical reviews. Labeled as a DIY indie rock artist, Tamko stands out in her ability to create a lasting impression on a wide audience, despite being in a genre that isn’t immensely popular. Her story as an artist is also incredibly compelling, as her integration into the scene began when she moved to New York from Cameroon at 14 years old.

Almost every music fan has found themselves scrounging for tickets on Live Nation or Ticketmaster's website at least once before. The prevalence of these two agencies in the concert–going process isn't anything new. However, many aren't familiar with the history of the companies themselves and the huge role they play in shaping the live music industry.
As college students, getting out to concerts is tricky. We always face that dilemma of whether we should spend money that could go towards necessities such as food to splurge on a show, or to stay in and save money. Plus, when you do get out to a concert, you have to deal with large crowds, people talking during the performance, blocking your view by taking pictures and videos, and getting way too drunk while you're trying to enjoy the show.
Now that school is well underway, it’s only appropriate that we take a look back at which songs truly defined the summer of 2019. Usually, summer hits are upbeat tracks in a major key that have a vaguely positive message, and Street wants to see how this summer measured up.
If you’ve ever attended a BROCKHAMPTON concert, then you’ve probably heard the chant “F**k Pitchfork” at some point during the show. This tense relationship between BROCKHAMPTON and the widely acclaimed music publication goes all the way back to BROCKHAMPTON’s debut album, SATURATION.
Three years after the release of their debut album, Light Upon the Lake, Chicago–based band Whitney came out with their second album, Forever Turned Around, on Aug. 30. Drummer Max Kakacek and guitarist Julien Ehrlich formed Whitney shortly after breaking off from their original band, Smith Westerns, in 2014. The success of Whitney’s Light Upon the Lake led to a two–year international tour that recently came to an end. Much like in Light Upon the Lake, Forever Turned Around celebrates bittersweet memories and hard truths.
Whether you’re a fan of the show or not, HBO’s Euphoria took this summer by storm. Starring Zendaya, Euphoria traces the day–to–day life of 17–year–old Rue Bennett, who just got out of rehab. Throughout the season, the show explores themes of addiction, adolescence, and empathy. The first season received positive critical acclaim with emphasis on its production, cinematography, and soundtrack, which featured artists like Lizzo and Madonna. Euphoria lists Drake and Future the Prince as executive producers, which could explain why the music is as good as it is. With such an extensive collection of songs, Street decided to showcase our top eight songs from a selection of 95 in Euphoria’s Season One soundtrack.

Not Waving But Drowning, out on April 19, showcases Carner’s lyricism perfectly, as he excels in crafting prose in stories about broken friendships and new beginnings. Carner’s debut album, Yesterday’s Gone, was released in 2017, and highlighted his poetic talents interwoven with playful melodies.
Wait, didn't Anderson .Paak just release an album not too long ago? Ventura, which came out on April 12, was released less than half a year after Oxnard, Paak’s previous album. Oxnard did not receive nearly as much critical acclaim as Malibu, which came out in 2016. Contrary to Oxnard, Ventura deviates from rap by focusing more on Paak’s relationship with funk and his painting of immaculate scenarios, but still features his bubbly persona and chill, dance–like beats.
Ermias Asghedom, known to most as Nipsey Hussle, was an artist who measured his success by his mobility and the impact he was able to make in his community. On March 31, 2019, Hussle was fatally shot outside of his Los Angeles store, Marathon Clothing.

Street takes a look into what J.I.D. brings to the table and why we should be excited for his performance at Spring Fling.

Three years after releasing her previous album, A Seat at the Table, Solange came out with When I Get Home on March 1st. While A Seat at the Table acted as Solange’s explicit commentary on issues of race, gender, and existentialism, When I Get Home completely diverges from this concept in its abstractness and fluidity of sound; at times it appears to be more of an artistic statement than an album.
