After what feels like an entire decade, 2020 is finally coming to a close. The year was very, uh, eventful, and we're grateful that music was there through all the ups and downs. Standout albums include Mac Miller's posthumous masterpiece, Circles; Beyoncé's deluxe edition of The Lion King: The Gift; and Megan Thee Stallion's debut LP, Good News — projects that respectively explored topics such as mental health, Black empowerment, and self-worth.

Pop and R&B music also had major moments with albums like Dua Lipa's Future Nostalgia and Chloe x Halle's Ungodly Hour. And while some artists released projects that were the perfect escape from our socially distanced mores (think: Lady Gaga's Chromatica), other LPs fit the indoor lifestyle with their pensive, secluded sound (*looks at Taylor Swift's Folklore*).

Many tunes kept us afloat over the past year, so, without further ado, I present to you 50 of the best albums to drop 2020, in no particular order.
