New albums from Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato and (maybe) Adele — but in addition big tours, award shows and surprises!
It’s October 1, which means the fourth quarter of 2015 has officially begun! The final 90 days of the year or so includes Thanksgiving, Christmas, Oscar-bait movies, the World Series, general elections and, obviously, releases from many of popular music’s perhaps most obviously A-listers. This year isn’t a different, with must-hear albums being issued from the weeks prior to the holidays and also huge tours, events, award shows and secret projects that will or might not be unveiled. Lest we forget, Beyonce’s fifth studio album was surprise-released from the heart of Q4 2013, and changed that Q4 forever.
et’s celebrate the start of Q4 2015 using a quick number of 20 upcoming events that pop fans ought to be eagerly anticipating. This is an incomplete rundown, however if even 1 / 2 of these moments surpass expectations, this Q4 could be the best Q4 ever.
Justin Bieber vs. One Direction
Two in the most anticipated releases of 2015 — One Direction’s post-Zayn album Made In The A.M. and Justin Bieber’s long-awaited pop comeback — just are already coming out within the same day, November 13. Pop fans will vote because of their wallets, along with the epic showdown is going to be rightfully hyped up inside the weeks previous to Biebs v. 1D. Check Drag me down sheet music.
Katy Perry’s Christmas song/project
Katy teased something holiday-related on Instagram way back in August, and also a holiday single/EP/album (pretty please?) would have been a lovely stopgap between albums three and four.
Demi Lovato’s Confident album
We all stayed “Cool For The Summer,” and today we’re all feeling “Confident.” Let’s hope Demi’s follow-up to her 2013 opus Demi can be as across-the-board consistent since it’s first two singles.
Selena Gomez’s Revival album
Selena Gomez is apparently entering a brand new phase of music-making and agency, and we’re immediately with her.
Taylor Swift’s 1989 tour finale
The epic world trek wraps up in North America on Halloween, and for good in Australia on December 12. Who will end up as surprise guests for all those final dates? The limit of star power will not exist. Check Style sheet music.
Little Mix’s Get Weird album
Everything we’ve have been told by the British girl group’s third studio album until now promises another exuberant joyride. Perhaps there are going to be a few lyrical shots at the certain former One Direction member! Strap in!
Rihanna music? Maybe?
It’s Q4, and although Rihanna hasn’t released an album since 2012’s Unapologetic, there’s always the possibility that she returns to rule the end in the year with #R8.
Drake’s Views From the 6 album?
Drizzy has recently dropped If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late as well as the Future team-up What a Time to Be Alive in 2015, but told The Fader that his next proper album is dropping “imminently.” Give us a breather, Drake! Just kidding, naturally.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ second album?
With “Downtown” climbing the charts, it’s not crazy to trust that the Grammy-winning duo’s sophomore album materializes before 2015 is closed out.
Whoa, we might get new Adele music sometime inside the next month or so! With artists like Ryan Tedder, Max Martin and Tobias Jesso Jr. reportedly attached, more greatness is usually anticipated.
Ellie Goulding’s Delirium album
New single “On My Mind” debuted at No. 22 for the Hot 100 soon, sufficient reason for Ellie having hung out at Max Martin’s Los Angeles studio after a bulk on the recording, expect a full-throttle pop masterwork.
2015 American Music Awards
The AMAs are usually the most underrated in the major pop award shows — where else can PSY and MC Hammer reasonably share a stage? Nominations is going to be announced on Oct. 13, using the big show heading down on Sunday, Nov. 22.
Tinashe’s Joyride album
The “2 On” singer’s sophomore LP will feature new single “Player” with Chris Brown and also the track “Party Favors” featuring Young Thug. Aquarius was certainly one of 2014’s strongest debuts, and hopes are high to the R&B starlet’s second go-round.
Pentatonix’s self-titled album
he mainstream has embraced the quintet’s covers — their recent handle “Where Are U Now” is really a gem — but sometimes PTX make the leap using their originals?
The eligibility period to the 2016 Grammys is officially over, and are available December, we’ll determine our early predictions were from the mark or upon target. Let’s just say a pile of nominations for 1989 wouldn’t be gasp-inducing.
More Troye Sivan music?
The YouTube star’s excellent Wild EP premiered last month, and Sivan is teasing “more new material” while he preps for his first live dates.
Lady Gaga at Billboard’s Women In Music event
Okay, this is often a shameless plug, but Gaga’s Woman in the Year award acceptance will most likely be epic, along with the annual event has been televised with the first time in 2010. Mid-December can’t come suddenly.
Sara Bareilles’ Q4 takeover
The “Brave” singer has a different book and album to arrive October and November, respectively, to effectively check in her run with The Blessed Unrest. Next up: her Waitress musical heads to Broadway in spring 2016.
5 Seconds of Summer’s Sounds Good Feels Good album
Expect a major chart bow for your Australian quartet, who will be approaching 1D amounts of #teen popularity after opening on multiple tours for your best-selling boy band.
Jingle Ball Tour
We understand that Nick Jonas is performing knowning that there will likely be 11 stops across America. After Taylor Swift headlined not too long ago, we can’t wait to find out who will lead the charge at this season’s radio spectacular.
The Weeknd’s The Madness tour
Halsey, Travis Scott and Banks will all support Abel Tesfaye on his victory lap following your blockbuster debut of his Beauty Behind The Madness album. Will “The Hills” nevertheless be No. 1 within the Hot 100 in the event the tour begins in Toronto on Nov. 3?
