Sound­tracks of 2018

The Gulf Today - Panorama - - EDITORIAL - SARAH TARYAM

De­cem­ber is upon us and in this last month of 2018, which has lown by so fast, we are tak­ing a look back at pop cul­ture and all the mo­ments that caught our at­ten­tion. This week we are delv­ing into the mu­sic world and list­ing the 10 best al­bums that had us talk­ing. From catchy pop hits to deeper rock an­thems, did any of your favourites make the list?

Num­ber ive on our list is Ken­drick Lamar’s al­bum Black Pan­ther: Orig­i­nal Mo­tion Pic­ture Score. The al­bum fea­tures sev­eral other tal­ented artists in­clud­ing Fu­ture and SZA who all came to­gether to pro­duce an amaz­ing sound­track for the Blank Pan­ther movie. Lamar co-pro­duced the al­bum and has writ­ing cred­its on an im­pres­sive 14 tracks.

Janelle Monáe comes in at num­ber three with her third full-length al­bum Dirty Com­puter, 10 years after the re­lease of her irst ofi­cial EP Me­trop­o­lis at age 21. The al­bum is pow­er­ful and soul­ful with tracks cel­e­brat­ing black fe­male power and self worth. Zoe Kravitz also fea­tures on one of the tracks.

In sec­ond place we have the Arc­tic Mon­keys who have taken the big­gest leap of their ca­reer so far with the al­bum Tran­quil­ity Base Ho­tel & Casino. Crit­ics have praised the sixth stu­dio al­bum by the Bri­tish rock band which was re­leased back in May and fea­tures a sci-i theme on some of its tracks. Read on to dis­cover who made the top spot on our list.

In other news this week, turn to our Beauty pages to read about how to prop­erly wear red lip­stick. Not all lip­sticks are the same qual­ity in terms of shade and for­mula so the brand you choose will make a huge dif­fer­ence. For a for­mula that will last all day, go for a matte lip­stick which is more pig­mented and im­pact­ful. For evening glam­our, go for a for­mula which has more sheen to it.
