8. Drake - 'Nothing Was the Same' (Sept. 24)
Drake topped the charts with his first two albums, and yielded big, career-making singles from his last "Take Care" including "Marvin's Room," "Headlines," "HYFR" and "Crew Love." He's back with collaborators like The Weeknd, hooked up with Jamie xx and James Blake, and will have Jay Z, Lil Wayne and Hudson Mohawke features. Promotion officially kicked off with boastful "Started from the Bottom." Maybe some things are the same, but this new album should be different enough.
