As we celebrate the last day of 2019 we couldn’t close it without giving you all our top 10 albums of 2019. Check to see who made the list below.

Beyoncé – Homecoming: The Live Album

I know you’re probably thinking, what is a live album doing on this list? Well let me tell you Beyoncé’s live album competes with any studio album released this year. From the vocals, live instruments and the quality. Although it is just a recording, Beyoncé draws you in and makes you feel as if you are right there at Coachella. You can literally feel every emotion and see every dance move just from listening to the record. Has anyone else noticed that 2019 is the first year that King Bey has not performed since 1998?

Summer Walker – Over It

Oh Summer! Despite all of the negativity surrounding the professionalism and tour drama, this history making album is quite stunning. The Atlanta songstress takes us all on an emotional journey which we can all relate to. I mean how many times have we drunk dialed someone to express our feelings to that no good (you know what). Summer has mastered the art of sampling by paying homage to our favorite R&B hits such as Usher’s “You Make Me Wanna” on her track “Come Thru”, which he also features, Destiny’s Child’s “Say My Name” on “Playing Games” and we cannot forget the classic Lenny Williams’ track “Cause I Love You” on “Drunk Dialing…LODT.” Since it’s release in October, Over It has broken the record previously set by Beyoncé’s 2016 album Lemonade as the most streamed female R&B album. Our anxious friend must be doing something right which is why she is on this list.

DaBaby – KIRK

That’s not DaBaby, that’s my baby…well at he should be. This album shows how goofy Baby really is and taps into the softer side as well. The record opens up with the very personal song “Intro” where he speaks on his father, mother having cancer and more. He didn’t give us a break either. Mr. Kirk proceeds with the Smash record “BOP” where he begins to boast on his accomplishments and talking his shit! It’s quite refreshing to have a hip-hop artist rise as quickly as DaBaby who is just as animated as Ludacris.

Ariana Grande – thank u, next

Does this even need a reason why? Let me start by saying the album has earned Ari her first # 1 single ever. If that doesn’t say enough then I don’t know what to tell you. The album shows how much Ariana has matured. She has gone from the little cousin who all your friends thought was cute, to the little cousin that your friends are literally drooling over. She takes charge of her own career with this one. Pushing out songs with a more urban flare which she has always wanted to do. With tracks like “7 Rings,” our favorite “Needy” and of course the title track, how could we not stan this record?

BJ The Chicago Kid – 1123

Chicago stand up! BJ provides another soulful record with his sophomore effort. 1123 is full of feel good records which make us feel in love. “Time Today” already had us in our feel and then we get blessed with Ari Lennox on the remix for the deluxe edition of the album. Honestly there aren’t really any deal-breaking moments on 1123. Arguably one of the best efforts put out this year. Let’s get that GRAMMY in February.

Lizzo – Cuz I love You:

2019 was really the year for Lizzo, after years of putting out music, Lizzo finally had her moment. Lizzo kicked things off with her party anthem Juice, but it was her 2-year-old single Truth Hurt’s that really grabbed the attention of millions of listeners. While the song did earn Lizzo and #1 single, her album Cuz I love you gave us a lot of bops such as Tempo featuring Missy Elliott, Soulmate, and Like a Girl. Lizzo proved 2019 is just the beginning.

Kaytranada – BUBBA:
If you know anything about this Canadian producer you know that he always gives us great songs from some of today’s new and veteran artists. Just before 2019 ended Kaytranada finally released his sophomore album BUBBA. Kay’s new album mixed some of the smooth voices of acts like Teedra Moses, Sir,Masgeo, Tinashe, Vanjess and more.

Ari Lennox – Shea Butter Baby:
Ari Lennox is another artist who has put in her time, after signing to J.Cole’s Dreamville label Ari Lennox began working on her debut album, and in 2019 this DC native gave us one of the best R&B debut albums of 2019. While the album’s lead single earned her a gold-selling single, it was really the full body of work that really showed off Ari’s personality and mesmerizing voice. After listing to this album, you really get a feel of who Ari is as a person and artist. With songs like the Masgeo assisted All night, BMO, I Been, and New Apartment, Ari really gives you that real soul music that has been missing for quite some time. If you listen to this album trust me you won’t be disappointed.

Asiahn – Love Train 2:

While a lot of people may not be familiar with her name, Asiahn has written for a lot of artists including Miley Cyrus, Dr. Dre, Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull, Drake, Lil Wayne and more. In 2017 Asiahn stepped behind the scenes and to the forefront with her debut album Love Train. As she caught listeners ears with her debut, Asiahn showed she had more to offer as she unleashed the follow-up Love Train 2. With standout songs like Curiosity, Like You, and Games Asiahn is gearing up to be the next singer/songwriter who is next to blow up.

Lucky Daye- Painted:

Lucky Daye really was a silent surprise in 2019. The New Orleans raised singer was one to look out for, with this lead single Roll Some More Lucky Daye grabbed the ears of new listeners. Before releasing his debut album lucky gave fans what to expect with his 2018 EP’s I, and II. leading up to his forthcoming debut album Painted which earned this newcomer four Grammy nominations
