For most of the albums coming out this year, music lovers had to enjoy them from the comforts of their homes because of coronavirus. But The Weeknd continually tweeted “let music heal us” before releasing his No. 1 album After Hours, and these projects proved their remedial value.
Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia successfully avoided the sophomore album slump and effectively turned everyone’s cribs into Club Quarantine. Lil Baby’s sophomore project My Turn took two turns at being No. 1 on the Billboard 200, once for its debut on the March 14-dated tally and again this week when the project made a 3-1 leap (chart dated June 20).
Megan Thee Stallion had fans doing all kinds of moves when “Savage,” the hottest song off her Suga EP, turned into a TikTok sensation and eventually a chart-topping track once fellow Houston hitmaker Beyoncé tapped the mic for the official remix. After a long-winded legal battle with 1501 Certified Entertainment, the rapper proved she couldn’t be stopped.
