All ready released on January 31, Kesha’s High Road studio album speaks volumes not only about the different battles in her life during the past decade but also how she rose from these traumatizing incidents. More importantly, Kesha manages to encapsulate what moving on is all about – something we are all too familiar with.

Seemingly going back to her roots, Kesha reintroduces her listeners to the electronic pop and synth creations we have come to know her for. Watch out for her collaborations with Imagine Dragons’ Dan Reynolds and even her mom!

9. Future Nostalgia

 

Dua Lipa’s Net Worth: $6 million

If one kiss is all it takes to fall in love with Dua Lipa, then we’re certainly head over heels with this girl. In 2020, this Grammy award-winning artist will be launching Future Nostalgia, with influences from the likes of Gwen Stefani and Madonna.

From the two singles she has publicly released, Dua Lipa exemplifies what it truly means to be a pop icon in the making. Though a release date has not yet been set out, she is expected to tour sometime in April, so Dua Lipa lovers can expect an earlier release date for Future Nostalgia.

8. Petals for Armor

 

Hayley Williams’ Net Worth: $14 million

Paramore’s lead vocalist seems to be taking a break to focus on her own album, Petals for Armor. To be released on May 8th, 2020, Simmer acts as the lead single for this solo venture.

Quite a different take on her punk and rock and roll days and even her journey through pop, her solo debut album takes on a more raw and vulnerable approach that allows listeners and fans alike to take a peek into her life. To quote Hayley Williams, this is “some of [her] proudest moments as a lyricist.”

7. White Hot Forever

 

Lana Del Rey’s Net Worth: $18 million

We’re hoping it won’t be summertime sadness for us as we wait for Lana Del Rey’s White Hot Forever album. As of August 2019, the artist had already announced that she is in the works of creating yet another masterpiece.

Since announcing that it will be released within 12 to 13 months last August, we can expect White Hot Forever to come out by August or September of this year. A collaboration with Billie Eilish might even be in the cards, says Wonderland Magazine.

6. Imploding the Mirage

 

The Killers’ Brandon Flower’s Net Worth: £15 million (roughly $19.5 million)

Prepare yourselves for spring 2020 as The Killers kill it with their newest album, Imploding the Mirage. Having released a highly political track named Land of the Free, we can deduce that the list of tracks also includes other socio-political commentaries peppered within.

In the past, The Killers have secured the number one spot for their first album. With their prowess, and let’s face it, their impressive vocal range, this is sure to wow even critics of the band.

Alanis Morisette’s Net Worth: $45 million

Coming in May, the rocker is celebrating the 25th anniversary of her first seminal album, Jagged Little Pill, with this new release, Such Pretty Forks on the Road. Its lead single is called, Reasons I Drink, which dare we say, is very on-brand of Alanis Morisette.

We don’t know if we’re going to be spiteful, especially after this goddess finally blesses us with her powerful and soulful voice once again. And since we hear she hung out with the Harry Styles, we’re hoping that a collab is on the table. Fingers crossed!

1. Ordinary Man

 

Ozzy Osbourne’s Net Worth: $220 million

Perhaps one of the biggest comebacks of the year is Ozzy Osbourne. Fresh from recovering from a bad fall, the punk rocker gives his audience a headbanging tune with his newest single, Under the Graveyard

Featuring Ozzy Osbourne’s first solo album in just about a decade, the prince of darkness himself gives it his all in what he calls “the most important album I have done in a very long time.” Among his impressive list of collaborators for the album are Elton John, Slash, and Chad Smith.
