Albums Of The Month July 2017

Loads of Artists that I follow have brought out new music in the past few weeks. I have had a lot to listen to and fortunately, I like it all. I’ve listed a few albums and here are some I would recommend.

Favourite Tracks: The Story Of O.J., Smile (Feat Gloria Carter), Cought Their Eyes, Family Feud, 4:44 and Moonlight.

As you can see, I’ve listed half the album as my favourite tracks! It’s a fantastic album! I’m not a die hard fan of Jay Z but there are a few tracks from each of his albums that I really like. I’ve seen him live once when he was supporting Coldplay.
