Rihanna might be in the music spotlight right now but ANTI is certainly not the only noteworthy album release this weekend. With a range of musical tastes from pop to classical, Buro 24/7 Middle East lists the top three album releases that should be on your playlist.
This is Acting by Sia
The singer rarely shows her face but her voice shines through, every single time. After the massive hit Chandelier propelled her to global superstardom, this new album picks up where she left off, with more powerhouse vocals on tracks like Alive and Cheap Thrills – the track that Rihanna rejected. Have a listen at the track below.
Nine Track Mind by Charlie Puth
Charlie Puth burst onto the music scene when he featured on Wiz Khalifa's massive hit See You Again, the official soundtrack for Furious Seven. From then on, Puth has been on a collaboration spree, first with Meghan Trainor on the track Marvin Gaye and most recently, with Selena Gomez on We Don't Talk Anymore, both of which appear on his debut studio album.
Sensuous Chill by Yanni
Pianist Yanni has been mesmerising listeners and audiences for over 35 years and his 18th studio album reflects the travels in his musical journey. While the new album might include new and diverse influences including the unlikely bhangra, his latest work does not aim to shock but rather to put the listener in an enjoyable mood.
