2011 promises some big albums from some of the hottest artists out there; let’s take a look at the year ahead in music, all these artists are planing album releases in 2011, I hope your iPod has some room on it.

Britney Spears

Look for Brit to drop her 7th studio album sometime in March. Britney’s manager has said to expect the unexpected for this album.

Lady Gaga

Gaga is releasing Born This Way on May 23rd. According to Gaga, Born This Way will sound like "bad kids going to church." Expect a mix of the dance-pop that made her famous, with the addition of an epic, classic rock sound in the vein of Bruce Springsteen and Elton John....Ok? Sounds interesting!


No date or title yet, but we know that B is working on an album, her 4th, and the producer has said that the album “might have an 80’s vibe”

He’s out of jail and got a new album dropping in 2011. Tha Carter IV will be Weezy's 9th studio album. It's not confirmed, but look for this album in February.
