Culture Mag’s Top 10 Albums of 2017

Well, it’s that time of the year again, folks. Somehow we’ve made it to the end of 2017! I could’ve sworn it was just NYE, so don’t ask me how this has happened. Not only do the end of year celebrations come with lots of turkey, mulled wine, Christmas movies, and fuzzy socks – it also comes with round-up lists!

This year was stellar for music, especially among the ladies.  We had Cardi B making chart-topping history, SZA dropping her debut album, and most recently Taylor Swift on the verge of having the best selling album of 2017.

We also have to tip our hats to the reemergence of R&B this year. Artists like Syd, Daniel Caesar, Sampha, Kehlani, Majid Jordan, Khalid, and more all released outstanding pieces of work. Pop was also alive and well in 2017 with artists like Demi Lovato, Fergie, Lorde, Calvin Harris, and Ed Sheeran giving us radio friendly vibes. And Hip-Hop? Almost every Hip-Hop artist in the game dropped something this year.

As you can imagine, we had a difficult time choosing our favorites, but we got it done.
