5. Lupe Fiasco – Lasers
There are so many great tracks on this album, but if I had to pick three favourites I’d have to go with: Words I Never Said feat. Skylar Grey, I Don’t Wanna Care Right Now feat. MDMA, and All Black Everything.
Here’s the video for Words I Never Said feat. Skylar Grey:
4. Jay-Z & Kanye West – Watch The Throne
For a while it was on constant repeat on my phone and out of the great selection of tracks my top three would have to be: No Church in the Wild, N—-s in Paris, and Gotta Have It.
Here’s the video for the first single from the album, Otis:
3. The Black Keys – El Camino
Within a couple hours of listening, I was hooked. Some of my favourites are: Lonely Boy, Dead and Gone, and though the chorus sounds a lot like a track from Metric, Nova Baby.
Here’s the video for Lonely Boy:
2. Kanye West – My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
The best three tracks off the album in my humble opinion are: Monster (thanks to Nikki Minaj), Runaway feat. Pusha T, and Gorgeous feat. Kid Cudi & Raekwon.
Here’s the video for Runaway:
1. The Strokes – Angles
I was never really a big enough fan of The Strokes to listen to their albums, but I really liked the first single from this one so I decided to give them a listen. After it was released in March, I kept it on replay for quite a while and ended coming back to it when not listening to the albums above.
Here’s the video for Under the Cover of Darkness:
