2020 has been another great year for pop music, and many of our favorite artists gave us amazing new albums to enjoy, but these five definitely stole the show.

The Weeknd – After Hours

Like the rest of The Weeknd’s discography, After Hours is the perfect mix of pop and R&B and it’s going to be the first album that we remember when we look back on 2020 in the future.

Taylor Swift – Folklore + Evermore

Taylor Swift’s surprise albums Folklore and Evermore are tough to place in a single genre because they walk the fine line between folk-pop and alternative rock—and that’s exactly their charm.

Dua Lipa – Future Nostalgia

Dua Lipa served some major disco-pop vibes on her career-defining album Future Nostalgia, and almost every song from this album became an instant hit that we couldn’t help but listen to on repeat.

Lady Gaga – Chromatica

Lady Gaga’s long-awaited sixth studio album finally hit the shelves this year, and it was an emotional rollercoaster from start to finish.

BTS – Be

BTS set many major records in 2020 and proved themselves as A force to be reckoned with. Be was their second no. 1 album of the year, and it produced the chart-topping singles “Dynamite” and “Life Goes On”.
