20 Albums Turning 20
At the beginning of the year it has become increasingly popular to try and predict which artists to watch out for and what the biggest trends may be for the year ahead. And at the start of a new decade it is tempting to peak even a bit further into the crystal ball to see what possibly may lie ahead in the years to come.
Over the coming weeks JOOX will be bringing you our predictions and artists that will be shaping the music landscape of the next decade, but here, at the very start of 2020, it is also a chance to look back and reflect on those albums that paved the way, or encapsulated a specific cultural occurrence.
