Once you hit play on any of these records, there's absolutely no need to hit the skip button when listening from track to track. Thank you to the Missouri State Class of 2024 for their suggestions.

1. Ctrl- SZA

Ctrl is the debut studio album by American singer SZA. It was released on June 9, 2017, on Top Dawg Entertainment and RCA Records. SZA's deeply personal lens on modern romance gives these songs endless life. During the recording process, SZA opted for a freestyle method, relying on moments in the studio. The majority of CTRL was recorded in Engine Room Audio in lower Manhattan. It debuted at number three on the US Billboard 200,

2. Stoney- Post Malone

Stoney is the debut studio album by singer and rapper Post Malone. It was released on December 9, 2016, under Republic Records. Post Malone first announced the album's release during an interview with Zane Low, saying it was going to drop on August 26, 2016, and explaining the album's title: We have an album coming out in August. A lot of cool s** on there. I think it's gonna be called Stoney. Stoney Malone, that's my old nickname. Post Malone later announced Stoney would be dropping in a tweet on December 8, 2016. Stoney proved to be a commercial success, debuting at #6 on the Billboard 200 Chart and later peaked at #4 on October 27, 2017.


3. Anti- Rihanna

ANTi is Rihanna's eighth studio album. After a seven-album run as a pop hitmaker, Rihanna sought to change her formula like never before. Breaking a four-year silence – her longest yet – Anti was, as she told Vogue, the result of her search for music to "match my growth". Going platinum in less than 24 hours, it saw the Barbadian pop icon conquer her fears and push her creative boundaries even further. Hitting No.1 on the Billboard 200, it also made Rihanna the first black female artist to chart for 200 weeks on the coveted listings.

4. Lil Uzi Vert vs. The World- Lil Uzi Vert

A surprise mixtape by Lil Uzi Vert, released on April 15th, 2016. Uzi had hinted at a mixtape on his Instagram, but it wasn't clear that he was planning on releasing it so soon. Although there are no features, the project features production from DJ Don Cannon, Wondagurl, and veteran trap-producer Metro Boomin. The only single was "Money Longer," which was released without any indication of an upcoming project. The idea for the title and cover of this mixtape came from the movie Scott Pilgrim Vs The World—Uzi pays homage to the movie with the ending track "Scott And Ramona."

5. When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go- Billie Eilish

WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? is Billie Eilish's debut studio album, released on March 29, 2019. On January 29th, 2019, Billie announced via Instagram her debut album would be titled WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? is now officially the most pre-added album of all time on Apple Music, garnering over 800,000 to its name on the platform. On April 7, 2019, Billboard confirmed the album's number-one debut on the Billboard 200, selling 313,000 equivalent album units in the U.S., and of the album's starting sum, 170,000 were in album sales.

6. 2014 Forest Hills Drive- J. Cole

On March 31st, 2015, it became the first hip-hop album in 25 years to be certified platinum without any features. 2014 Forest Hills Drive won the 2015 Billboard Music Award for the Top Rap Album as well as the 2015 BET Hip Hop Award for the Best Album of the Year. Although failing to win, this project was nominated for Best Rap/Hip Hop Album in 2015 at the American Music Awards, as well as Best Rap Album at the 58th Grammy Awards in 2016. This album became certified Platinum on January 8th, 2016 by the RIAA—the first featureless rap album to go Platinum in twenty-five years—and certified Double Platinum by the RIAA in October of 2016.

8. Astroworld- Travis Scott

ASTROWORLD is Travis Scott's long-awaited third studio album, following his 2016 release Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight. The album is titled after Six Flags AstroWorld, a popular Houston amusement park. The park was demolished in 2005. Despite several developers staking claims to develop the large vacant lot into use, nothing has been done with the space since.

9. Eternal Atake- Lil Uzi Vert

Eternal Atake is Lil Uzi Vert's oft-delayed second studio album and a follow-up to his August 2017 debut album, Luv Is Rage 2. Eternal Atake debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, moving 288,000 album-equivalent units. It is his second album to top the chart. It remained on top of the charts for another week during the chart week of March 28, 2020, after Uzi released the deluxe version of the record.

10. American Idiot- Green Day

For their fifth major-label studio album, Green Day decided to go deeper in their themes, aiming for a punk rock opera reminiscent of The Who once the song "Homecoming" wound up as a Tommy-like suite. American Idiot peaked at number one on the Billboard 200 holding that spot for three weeks and staying 143 weeks on the charts.

11. The Dark Side of the Moon- Pink Floyd

The Dark Side of the Moon is the eighth studio album by English rock band Pink Floyd, released on March 1st, 1973.

Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no.

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.

125353

When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage.

In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

Last night on "The Bachelorette," Yosef (aka the guy who was accused of sliding into women's DMs before the show began filming) continued his streak of red flags by calling Clare "crazy."

To give you a little more context, this red flag happened after Clare got very upset with the guys on her group date for not making an effort to speak to her one-on-one when the opportunity arose and an awkward silence ensued. Because of this, she was clearly embarrassed and ended up having to ask them to ask her to go for a walk, which was... painful to watch (and probably to live out).

The Best Air Fryers To Gift THAT Person In Your Life Who Always Cooks For You

I use mine more than my oven, toaster, and microwave combined.

It took me a long time to understand what the point of an air fryer really was. Couldn't I just bake something and get the same consistency?

My opinions took a total 180 when several years ago my mom made some delicious, homemade crispy fries. I was shocked when she told me she made them in her air fryer. Without a single drop of oil, they felt crispy and indulgent, unlike anything I have been able to achieve in an oven.

As a teenage girl, I can safely say that a pregnancy scare is horrifying. I'm not one to say that becoming a young parent is bad, but for many, it is not the ideal situation to be in. Going through a pregnancy scare leads to a lot of unwanted worries until that period comes, or a test reads "positive."

Being an inexperienced tumbler, I have had my fair share of mental blocks. There have been weeks where I can't even do a back walkover properly — I tense up and freeze. I thought that saying that my mental block wasn't real would make it go away, but it didn't. The reason? I didn't believe it. I just said it and hoped for the best, all while knowing that I wasn't going to do whatever skill I was struggling with. It frustrated me and made me so insecure about the progress I was making even when I was told that I was doing well. All I saw were the mistakes and times I didn't try at all.
