Fall 2011 Release Schedule

Fall 2011 Album Release Schedule

It’s that time of the year again. The music industry is banking on its biggest stars to deliver blockbuster albums during the holiday season. The fall lineup includes the long-awaited debut from Roc Nation’s freshman J. Cole (Cole World: The Sideline Story), the sophomore album from Young Money’s returning champ Drake (Take Care), and Mary J. Blige, who will continue her legacy with the follow-up to her 1994 landmark album My Life. Plus get ready for another round from pop princess Rihanna, who scrapped plans for a LOUD re-release in favor of an entirely new album.

We’ve compiled our annual fall schedule featuring some of the season’s biggest hip-hop and R&B releases. Discover who is dropping before the end of the year, and bookmark this page for any date changes and additions to the list.
