Best Bets Albums 2013, Maxwell
Title: "SUMMERS'" | Release Date: TBD
Following an eight-year hiatus between albums, R&B lothario Maxwell released his fourth studio LP "BLACKsummers'night" in 2009, opening atop the Billboard 200 chart. The 39-year-old previously said that the project was first in a trilogy and originally intended to release the second in the series, "SUMMERS'," back in 2010. But due to the success of the first, which earned him Grammy awards for Best R&B Album and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance, he paused the process and hit the road with Jill Scott. After battling vocal issues and canceling last year's tour, Maxwell set off 2013 by posting a picture on Instagram touting the partial tracklist of "SUMMERS'." Looks like seasonal heat won't be the only thing keeping people warm in a few months.
