Now that we’re midway through 2016, it’s a great opportunity to look back at all the albums that have moved us as listeners thus for this year.
2016 has already brought us a number of monster releases from chart-topping artists including Beyonce, Ariana Grande and Kendrick Lamar, Drake and Rihanna. Meanwhile artists like Yuna and Corinne Bailey Rae repped for more left-leaning R&B, while YG and and ScHoolboy Q made sure to hold it down for the West Coast rap scene. The first half of 2016 has proven to be a great year for hip-hop and R&B and makes us excited for the coming months.
