Over the past year we’ve been fortunate enough to have seen a string of groundbreaking albums from Jay-Z & Kanye West, Beyonce, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Taylor Swift and Adele.

So what’s the forecast looking like for 2012???

Jay-Z:
Jay has spoken about releasing a solo album and part two of Watch The Throne. He is on a roll after the hype and creativity of Watch The Throne so our guess is he’ll live up to his word. Although he hasn’t given a release date we know it’s going to be an Amazing album and worth the wait!

Madonna:
Madonna has collaborated with with M.I.A and Nicki Minaj for the single “Gimme All Your Luvin” from her unnamed LP, which will feature production from Ray of Light producer William Orbit.

Nicki Minaj:
We will see more from the chocolate princess in the new year as she drops her new album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded on Valentines day and she will also feature on the 2012 Grammy Nominees Album which will be out on 24th January 2012.

Lady Gaga:
Mother Monster has already talked about the sequel to her Born This Way LP. She recently told MTV News that she’s already started writing songs and "all the concepts are beginning to flourish and take place." Although she didn’t give a set release date we know Gaga is a workaholic so it may well be ready in 2012.

Rihanna:
If we go by how often Rihanna puts out a new album it’s usually every 12 months so it’s likely that we may see a new album from the Barbarian beauty at the end of next year.

We can also keep our eyes peeled for NEW material from No Doubt, Joe Budden, Lil Wayne, Drake, Avril Lavigne, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Ke$ha, Katy Perry, Christina Aquilera, Nicole Scherzinger, 50 Cent, Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa and many more.

What albums are you looking forward to?
