Featuring a bevy of singer-songwriters, several ascendent stars, and the return of a few all-time great acts, the first quarter of 2017 did not disappoint with its Best Albums.
The cream of the crop. Top of the Pops. Tyler reveals his Albums of the Year, featuring an ascendent, joyous rapper, and a bunch’a emo bands.
Tyler worms his was toward his Top 10 songs of the year, covering songs 50-16, featuring Joey Purp, The Avalanches, Kanye West and Ariana Grande.
