My Favorite Albums of 2020

Most years I would say something cliche about how quickly the year has gone by, and how it’s crazy that it’s almost over. This year is different, 2020 has felt like an eternity and frankly I can’t wait for it to be over. There have been some good things to come out of 2020 though, mainly being music.

Circles by Mac Miller

Released: January 17

I’m not going to outright call this the best album of the year, but I thought I’d start with my personal favorite. 

There’s some albums or songs that I wish I could listen to for the first time again. This posthumous work is one of those albums. There’s so much heart that you can hear. 

This was the perfect ending to Mac Miller’s discography.

Notable songs:
  • Circles
  • Complicated
  • Blue World
  • Hand Me Down
  • Surf
  • Once a day

Limbo by Amine

Released: August 7

I’ve been a fan of Amine for a while, so this was a highly anticipated release for me. 

The album never dies down from Burden, the first and in my opinion best song.

Notable songs:
  • Burden
  • Woodlawn
  • Shimmy
  • Mama

Savage Mode II by 21 Savage & Metro Boomin’

Released: October 2

For some reason, 21 Savage projects rarely disappoint me. Savage Mode II is no exception. 

This album is great for workouts, bringing high energy beats from Metro Boomin’ and high energy raps from 21.

There isn’t a boring moment, making this one of the better albums that’s released so far in 2020.

Notable songs:
  • Runnin
  • Mr. Right Now featuring Drake
  • Many Men
  • Said N Done

Halfway Off the Porch by AG Club

Released: January 25

AG Club is one of many artists I found during my quarantine summer. 

Memphis is one of my favorite songs that I’ve heard this year. I didn’t hear any songs that I liked more than Memphis, but I was surprised at the quality of their debut album. 

AG is the next A$AP, and I can’t wait for what’s next. 

Notable songs:
  • Hngover
  • Memphis
  • Paprika

HAPPY 2 BE HERE by Ant Clemons

Released: February 28

Ant Clemons’ debut EP made a great impression. His voice and production are amazing, and this project is a taste of what’s to come. Considering this EP, I think he has the potential to be huge.

Notable songs:
  • Mama I Made It
  • 4 Letter Word featuring Timberland
  • Excited featuring Ty Dolla $ign
  • Aladdin featuring Pharrell
