AMP Music Minute: Adele Tops Best Album Lists, Rihanna Gets Grill’d Out And Nicki Minaj Kisses And Tells With Madonna
As the end of the year draws near, music critics have come out of the woodworks to declare their picks for best album of 2011. Can you guess who tops some of the more major lists? Well if TIME magazine and Rolling Stone are any judge, then [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Adele[/lastfm]’s 21 reigns supreme.
As is to be expected, Adele is not the only AMP artist to make these prestigious lists.
[photogallerylink id=130770 align=right]This weekend [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kanye West[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jay-Z[/lastfm] are heading to the Staples Center to jumpstart their LA stop on their epic Watch The Throne tour. But before that, they start the weekend off right by making it in the top 3 of both lists.
TIME ranks them 3rd right under [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Florence & The Machine[/lastfm]’s second and breakthrough album, Ceremonials.
[photogallerylink id=104427 align=left]Rolling Stone has [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Throne[/lastfm] immediately after Adele’s quadruple platinum album at No. 2. They also include[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Lady Gaga[/lastfm]’s hit-spawning, Grammy-nominated second album Born This Way in the top 10 at No. 6.
MTV lists their top 20 for the year and name Adele at No. 2 and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Drake[/lastfm]’s sophomore effort Take Care at No. 3. They also push Jay and ‘Ye all the back to No. 8 but leave Born This Way in the top 10 at No. 10.
