Her er årets bedste album ifølge internationale medier

December er listernes fest. Vi har samlet nogle af de mest toneangivende, udenlandske musikmediers lister over de bedste album i 2018.
Her er årets bedste album ifølge internationale medier
Janelle Monáe.

Hvor både 2017 og (især) 2016 var domineret af sværvægtere som Kendrick Lamar, Jay-Z, Lorde, David Bowie, Beyoncé og Frank Ocean, har 2018 i højere grad – og på meget forfriskende vis – været præget af ikke små, men i hvert fald mindre etablerede navne.

Det har givet nogle lidt mindre oplagte lister end normalt, men der er alligevel en række navne, der går igen: Især Mitski, Cardi B, Kacey Musgraves, Pusha-T, Ariana Grande og Janelle Monáe er gennemgående højdespringere.
