In the surprise-album era, we’re often left in the dark about new releases from our favorite artists until they actually arrive. That won’t stop us from obsessing over every little piece of information we can find on the internet, though. Judging by interviews, social media snippets, and press releases, it’s clear that 2019 is going to be another great year for music. Album titles and release dates remain a mystery for many of the inclusions on this list (and there’s a distinct possibility that some of them won’t see the light of day over the next 12 months), but there are enough clues about each album to warrant eager anticipation. From the curiosity surrounding Blueface’s studio debut to the promise of Rihanna’s long-awaited return, there is a lot to be excited about this year. These are Complex's most anticipated albums of 2019.
