Summer Albums

A Definitive Ranking of the Top 5 Albums Released in Summer 2019

3. Igor by Tyler the Creator

Summer’s not just for fun, but it’s also the perfect season to feel our deepest emotions. Tyler the Creator’s sixth album, Igor, chronicles the honest aftermath of a tough breakup. The album was produced, written and arranged by Tyler, making it vulnerable in more ways than just the lyrical content. The production of the songs matches the restless feeling of coming to terms with a relationship’s end. The range of emotions is shown in songs like “A BOY IS A GUN,” where Tyler shows his resentment, and in songs like “EARFQUAKE,” where he shows his apologetic sincerity. With Igor, Tyler the Creator proved that to make the perfect summer album, you don’t have to hide your true emotions.
