High school is pretty scary, especially on Friday the 13th. However, last Friday proved to be an exception as music lovers from all over the nation came together to celebrate not two but three music album releases last Friday. That is right; three albums were dropped on Nov. 13, 2015.
The first record to drop was none other than Justin Bieber’s Purpose. Bieber has had quite the comeback this year. After his multiple sentences behind bars and his on-and-off relationship with ex-Disney star Selena Gomez, many fans were beginning to lose faith in him. Bieber has grown tremendously since his entrance in the music industry with songs like “Baby” and “Boyfriend.” Appealing to a larger demographic, bad boy Bieber even teamed up with Jack U over the summer to bring the hit single “Where Are U Now.” Purpose, as a whole, carries on his R&B style, giving everyone Bieber Fever.
The next album to drop was long awaited. Rapper Logic recently released The Incredible True Story. Although Logic has taken the cake for copying Chance the Rapper and Mac Miller, his new album is by far his best work. Mimicking the sing-songy quality of Kendrick Lamar’s latest record, The Incredible True Story takes listeners on a musical journey. Listeners can follow along the plotline while enjoying collaborations with Childish Gambino and Big Sean. According to a Twitter poll, The Incredible True Story does not even compare to Mac Miller’s GO:OD AM. However, the record has shown listeners that Logic is progressively learning new styles of music.
Last, but certainly not least, One Direction recently released Made in the AM. 2015 has been a rough year for the band with the loss of soprano Zayn Malik and the new addition to Louis Tomlinson’s family. After the band’s short hiatus, 1D is back and better than ever. Their record has proven that 1D fans will remain truthful no matter what. With tunes like “Wolves” and “Drag Me Down,” the band is providing listeners with perfect sing-along songs. Although the loss of Malik also meant the loss of their upper octaves, the band still manages to incorporate the higher notes with instruments.
Overall, Nov. 13 was a great day for music, demonstrating to every music fan that when the media makes it seem like an artist has lost their way, the artist will always have a better comeback record.
