There's so much coming that we could either never predict – who could have ever seen "Gangnam Style" or "Call Me Maybe" coming a year ago? – or have not yet been confirmed. But there's a lot of superstar artists likely to put out new music in 2013, including U2, Kanye West, Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, Daft Punk, Adele, Spoon, Pearl Jam, Skrillex, and maybe just maybe, D'Angelo. Also, there's a really good chance that R. Kelly might actually make good on his promise to put on a stage production of his Trapped in the Closet saga! There is so much to look forward to, seriously.
