1. "Mountains" by Sia, Diplo, Labrinth

Dropped: November 1Fire level: 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 / 5Overview: As the fourth addition to LSD, the album featuring dynamic trio Labrinth, Sia, and Diplo, "Mountains" is as powerful and strong as the title suggests. With a slow, acoustic start, the song will have listeners thinking this is a softer sound on the album, just to find the opposite in the chorus. Like all of the previous releases on LSD, "Mountains" is a banger that makes you want to dance around your room without a care in the world.

2. "Party For One" by Carly Rae Jepsen

Dropped: November 1Fire level: 🔥🔥🔥 / 5Overview: With an extremely upbeat and pop tempo, "Party For One" is the break-up anthem that suggests getting over it and moving forward, even if that means alone. This self-love bop has some hidden layers like "making love to myself" as possibly a hint towards masturbation? Whatever it may mean, we're here for it. Could this hit top "Call Me Maybe"?

3. "I Used To know Her Pt. 2" by H.E.R.

Dropped: November 2 Fire level: 🔥🔥🔥🔥/ 5 Overview: With her fifth EP H.E.R. solidifies her spot in the R&B space with her often stripped down, but a no-less soulful voice that can get you into a laidback vibe you'll either want to sing along to, or reminisce to lovers-past. All of the songs here are somewhat melancholy, but she makes a point to be self-reflective to how she used to be. This album is the markings of a great singer-songwriter. Don't sleep on H.E.R. (pun-intended).

4. "The Last Rocket" by Takeoff

Dropped: November 2Fire level: 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥/ 5 Overview: If you wanted to milly rock all the way to the bank, this is the album for you. Every song is afro-futuristic FIRE, especially "Lead The Wave," which is an anthem for every trendsetter waiting to make their mark. Plus, it has those classic Migos ad-libs we love and are used to.

5. "thank u, next" by Ariana Grande

Dropped: November 3Fire level: 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 / 5Overview: Only Twitter legend Ariana Grande could release a catchy song about all of her exes. Even though the beat is light-hearted, the lyrics show that Ari has been through so much and has learned from all her past lovers and look back at them positively. It's a cute single you can bop to anytime, and for that we thank u, next.

Dropped: November 3Fire level: 🔥🔥🔥 /5Overview: Benny Blanco's upbeat and pop-centric bop features the vocals of Calvin Harris and minimal lyrics. This is the first time Harris has sang on a track since "My Way". With only one verse and a repetitive chorus, this song makes the perfect banger for an EDM or pop club scene.

7. "FM!" by Vince Staples

Dropped: November 2Fire level: 🔥🔥🔥🔥 / 5Overview: Our bae dropped his third album at the beginning of November, and we weren't disappointed. His dry and sometimes stabbing humor is seen throughout, and the short snippets of tracks can be seen as an ode to Long Beach, California (the never-ending feeling of summer and violence included). This album is the epitome of a West-Coast vibe, and he even has an interlude of Earl Sweatshirt's single for the music heads.

8. "Nowhere2go" by Earl Sweatshirt

Dropped: November 8Fire level: 🔥🔥🔥 / 5Overview: Our favorite self-described moody rapper is back with his single. His flow is sick, and the beat he raps over is even more dope. Since the song itself is only two minutes, it's definitely a taste of what's to come.

Dropped: November 9

Fire level: 🔥🔥🔥🔥 / 5

Overview: Inspired by the movie Beetlejuice, "Go All Out" is a dark and empowering scene of a seance held by five women. With some pretty crazy dance moves and placed in a Victorian-styled dining room, the imagery draws you in and makes you want to go all out. "Go All Out" is the second single in 2018 from electronic pop artist, Salt Ashes.

10. Origins by Imagine Dragons

Dropped: November 9Fire level: 🔥🔥🔥🔥 🔥 / 5Overview: Imagine Dragons, arguably America's favorite rock band, delivered with their fourth studio album. With a number of hit tracks like "Bad Liar", "West Coast", and "Natural", Origins is an overall success. The entire piece is beautiful from rhythm, to melodies that make perfect for road-tripping or sitting back and relaxing. Everything sounds slightly familiar and connected, all while tapping into sounds of almost every genre.

12. LM5 by Little Mix

Dropped: November 16Fire level: 🔥🔥🔥 / 5Overview: The opening vocals and lyrics of this album "she is a bad bitch," really explain the mood of every single one of the tracks included. Little Mix gets their props for being a mainstream girl band with success, but some of the songs sound the same, and for that they get three fire marks. I'm still gonna twerk to the upbeat songs, though. I sure am!

13. Delta by Mumford & Sons

Dropped: November 16Fire level: 🔥🔥🔥 / 5Overview: The British folk band that gave us "Little Lion Man" is back with a new release. The album starts slow but builds up at "October Skies". With songs that make perfect for the first dance at a wedding and others that sound like Texan deep-country, it's obvious the band is trying to make a comeback but still figuring it out. Delta is a hit or miss, with some songs that will stick with you while others will get a 'next' click. "If I Say" is arguably the best track on the album.

14. Caution by Mariah Carey

Dropped: November 16Fire level: 🔥🔥🔥 / 5Overview: This R&B diva and vet is at it again with her new album that'll absolutely give you life. With features from Slick Rick and Travis Scott (to name a few), you'll get a bit of the old school Mariah you (and the Lambs) are used to, and something new for anyone who's been living underneath a rock and isn't familiar with her vocals by now. She has the range!

15. The Sunset Tapes: A Cool Tape Story by Jaden Smith

Dropped: November 17Fire level: 🔥🔥🔥 / 5Overview: Jaden's junior album features a lot of different vocals comparable to Tyler the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, and even Kanye West. While it seems the young Smith is still trying to find his sound, he proves himself as a lyricist. With an abundant use of Auto-Tune jumping back to a chill Tory Lanez vibe, the listener gets a little bit of everything all packed into one album. "Plastic", the fourth track, holds to be the strongest and most consistent with killer lyrics, a popping beat, and a familiar party song-feel.

Overview: It's been a minute since we've heard from Ms. Rowland, but she returned to the game with some fire over the holiday weekend that we didn't know we needed. The trap-inspired bop is just three minutes of her bragging about how dope she is, and I for one, am here for it. She isn't humble no more and she's here to remind you why!

17. Nothin Like U / Chances by Kaytranada

Dropped: November 30Fire level: 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 / 5 Overview: The Canadian DJ returned with some new bops to listen to while you're getting ready to go out and shake your body in the club. A standout, "Nothin Like You," features Ty Dolla $ign that'll have you bobbing your head and pressing repeat. Thank you for blessing us, Kaytranada. I'll be blasting this all December.

18. Championships by Meek Mill

Dropped: November 30Fire level: 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 / 5Overview: The loudest rapper alive has dropped straight flames, and I'm still in shock. With features from Cardi B, Drake, Rick Ross, and the legendary Jay-Z, Meek is here to tell everyone that he's here to stay. I'm pretty sure "What's Free" will go down in hip-hop history with the amount of flow changes alone. I think this album has brought the comeback of East Coast rap, not that it ever went away in the first place.
