Barely into January of the new year and artists have released music that is climbing the charts. Not only that, many more have plans for new albums this year. Hopefully new and fresh music can help lift our spirits for the new year.
One artist that has been pushing out new music is Taylor Swift. First her album “folklore” was released in August 2020, to follow that her surprise drop of “evermore” was in December 2020, and to start the new year off right, she released a deluxe version of “evermore” with two new songs. In that same genre, Justin Bieber released “Anyone” on New Year’s Day which is at number seven on the iTunes charts. Disney Actress and TikTok star, Olivia Rodrigo released her single, “drivers license” on January 8th, and now sits number one on the iTunes charts. To dig into the country genre, Morgan Wallen released his double album, “Dangerous” on January 8th. He sits with five songs in the top 31 on iTunes.
Many artists have also announced their plans for new music this year. Kacey Musgraves, H.E.R., Sia, Lil Nas X, Billie Eilish, and Lana Del Ray, just to name a few.
