As we start this new decade, I think it's important to take a look back at what was arguably the most influential project of the last one. Trilogy, a compilation released in 2012 by The Weeknd, has had an impact on modern music that rivals Kanye West's 808's & Heartbreaks. Trilogy contains the first three mixtapes released by The Weeknd, House Of Balloons, Thursday, & Echoes of Silence. The story of Trilogy is a long one, so long in fact that in this article, I will only cover House Of Balloons, the debut project.
The year is 2010. With the turn of the decade, the music world is excitedly awaiting what the 10's will bring to the table. Kanye West is in hibernation after last year's VMA debacle, but knowing him he is working on something incredible. Lil Wayne is trying to release Tha Carter IV, a project that wouldn't see release for nearly two more years, despite already missing a release date. However, the most promising...

5. CARLY RAE JEPSEN - DEDICATED
Dedicated is an album that is split between two sounds and sides of Carly Rae Jepsen. Initially described as a disco album, it more closely resembles a direct sequel to her previous album EMOTION with a stronger focus on a retro sound.
