A Shopping List Of Upcoming Maple Music Releases

OK, so the headlines are screaming 'new releases' from Justin Timberlake, Cardi B and Ariana Grande in 2018, and a shopping list more of star talent that have either signed and sealed their next deal or have grand plans to wow fans sooner rather than later in the year. We've created a list of homegrown stars, some instantly recognizable and a few on their way to becoming tomorrow's touring headliners, and, just for the fun of it, we've included a few retro and best-of collections that hit stores everywhere online and on main street in the next several months.

And don't believe for a moment that this is a complete list: Drake has been rambling on and releasing mixtapes that hint that he has new material to release whenever he feels the 'muse' come on; Carly Rae could well have another long-play out before the end of Q1, Celine Dion who knows? And the list goes on.

All release dates below are subject to change, and even the titles could be altered before you read this.
