Have most of the year's major releases by female artists been stockpiled for the final four months?
That's how it seems with records on the way from Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Hudson and Karen O. Somehow there's a Selena Gomez greatest hits album too, but we're going to pretend we didn't see that. Oh, and there's the highly anticipated full-length debut for Jhene Aiko.
Here are the upcoming records and shows we're excited about.
