Megan Thee Stallion Reveals Plans for New Album and World Tour in 2023
Add Megan Thee Stallion to the list of artists who will release an album in 2023. In a Forbes profile, Megan revealed her plans to drop a new album and go on tour the following year. “I can’t slow down right now. I’ll take a break when I’m dead,” she said to Forbes. “I’m trying to really build something.” She adds, “When I start sitting, I feel like I’m not doing enough or I’m giving somebody else the opportunity to pass me.”
Megan has been on the move since her rapping career gained traction. She released her sophomore album ‘Traumazine’ this year, which spawned her hit single ‘Sweetest Pie’ featuring Dua Lipa. Outside of music, the ‘Savage’ rapper announced that a documentary about her life is currently in the works, and she also recently starred in Marvel’s ‘She-Hulk: Attorney At Law.’
Billie Eilish and Finneas Are Working On Her Next Album
“We just started the process of making an album, which is really exciting,” Billie Eilish said in an interview with Vanity Fair. The new album will follow her successful second studio album ‘Happier Than Ever’ and her debut LP ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’
FINNEAS, her longtime collaborator, producer, and brother, discussed the upcoming album in December 2021, just six months after the release of ‘Happier Than Ever.’ “We’ve got the net in the ocean, and we’re picking up detritus. And then you sift through all that, and you pick out the treasure, and then you have an album. I’m really excited. I think we’ve got a lot to say,” he told Rolling Stone.
Billie is currently on tour this year until December 16 and will headline Lollapalooza Argentina, Lollapalooza Chile, and Lollapalooza Brazil next year.

The 13-track album follows Jennifer’s last album ‘A.K.A.,’ which was released back in 2014.

Dua Lipa Might Release Her Third Album Soon
Following her critically acclaimed hit record ‘Future Nostalgia,’ a new record from Dua Lipa is on the way! The pop star is planning a newer approach for the release, something that might be different from her disco-influenced ‘Future Nostalgia.’
“I’ve started writing again and working on new music,” she said in an interview with Vogue. “I’ve definitely grown up. Overall, whether it’s sonically or in terms of the themes, I’ve matured. It’s like I’m coming into my power and not afraid to talk about things. It’s about understanding what I want.” More details regarding the album are yet to be revealed.
The singer recently concluded her Future Nostalgia with 94 stops across Germany, England, France, Brazil, Mexico, Austria, Spain, and many more!
