Speaking to Red Carpet News TV at the Mental Health Valentine’s Day Gala, Little Mix legend Leigh-Anne revealed that we'll be getting a new album this year, admitting, "So we've got the new album coming out this year which is really exciting."

Adding, "We start writing it... basically, March, when we get back to work. Then the tour will follow the following year. Basically, we've got our lives planned out for the next two years, but it's great."

Shawn Mendes - 'TBA'

By the end of 2018 Shawn Mendes will finally become 20 years old! So, hopefully we'll get our hands on his THIRD (yes, third, that's three album by the time he's 20) by the end of the year too. Early in January Shawn vowed to finish the album by the end of the month, just... YAY!

Shawn went on to tweet a random fan account a whole line of lyrics when they asked him for some info on album three!

James Arthur - 'TBA'

James Arthur's 2016 comeback securely put the X Factor winner back on the map when it came to pop royalty. Fast forward to 2018 and James is finally back in the studio for the first time since 'Back From The Edge'.

And the best part is, he's hired in some help from Bastille's Dan!

Major Lazer - 'Music Is The Weapon' (TBA)

Who else feels like they've been waiting for this album for an eternity? Oh that's probably because you have! The trio have been recording songs for 'Music Is The Weapon' since 2015, stretching all the way back to 'Cold Water' featuring Justin Bieber. Come on, surely 2018 is THE year this finally arrives.

Calvin Harris - 'TBA'

In the first couple of days of February 2018, rumours began to swirl surrounding new Calvin Harris music and it looks like they're about to come true! Calvin posted this video of a advert in Times Square... it might not be an album but it has to be a new single at the very least right?!

Nicki Minaj - 'TBA'

The good news is, Nicki is definitely recording new material. Speaking to Dazed she revealed, "Tomorrow, I might walk into the studio and decide that I don’t like anything I’ve done in the last six months. Or tomorrow I might walk in and feel like the whole album is done. There’s so much beauty in not knowing." Something is coming!

Selena Gomez - 'TBA'


Currently. Until the next year. Here’s where I’ll be.

A post shared by Selena Gomez (@selenagomez) onDec 10, 2017 at 2:28pm PST

The last time Selena Gomez released a full studio album was back in 2015 with her platinum selling LP 'Revival' and now it is finally time for Sel to head back into the studio. We've already had new music in 2017 with her Marshmello collab 'Wolves' and 'Fetish' feat. Gucci Mane, a 2018 album seems a dead cert!

Iggy Azalea - 'Surviving The Summer' (TBA)



2014 saw Iggy release her debut album 'The New Classic' and we've been waiting ever since for a new studio album, well, the time is near people! Originally named 'Digital Distortion', Iggy announced she renamed her sophomore album to 'Surviving The Summer' in November 2017.

Anne-Marie - 'TBA'

Anne-Marie... why haven't you released an album yet?! 'Alarm', 'Ciao Adios' and new single 'Then' are all legit pop bangers that belong in an album together. 2018 would be the perfect year for AM to release it and you know what, we're happy to wait...
