Trending in 2021 - Part 1

This year kicked off very slowly and the impact of 2020 and the global pandemic is evident and pretty much the new context. It seems that there have been less releases than in any previous years prior to the pandemic. A lot of concerts and festival have been postponed for another year or cancelled and some were even organized online.
As for the music releases, the commercial highlights come from with the likes of The Weeknd, Lana Del Rey and Lady Gaga and they still echo their 2020 album releases. It is also great to see that the independent production is active and the most prominent this and last year is certainly the Italians Do It Better music label which has had quite a few exciting releases out. Last but certainly not least, Duran Duran returning with first new material since 2015.
