#3. HNDRXX, Future
Label: Epic Records

Released only two weeks after his self-titled project, HNDRXX is a soulful combination of R&B and Hip-Hop. Compared to the predecessor project, Future showed his warm, soft side that we almost never get a chance to see. HNDRXX made a bold statement, and served as an outlet for the Atlanta rapper to express his feelings about the public break up with his former girlfriend Ciara. This album is packed with songs that are suitable for the mainstream audience, like, “Incredible” and Comin Out Strong” featuring The Weeknd. The Rihanna cameo on “Selfish” added extra star power to the surprise album. Additionally, HNDRXX made Future the first artist to score two consecutive chart topping albums on the Billboard 200. The rare vulnerability Future displayed, brilliantly mixed with the brutal honesty, and the timeliness made HNDRXX one of the top albums of 2017 so far. – Miss2Bees.
