March 2022 New Music Releases
A new month is upon us, which means new music is on the way from some of your favorite artists. Things heat up in March with album releases from some of the hottest young talent in the game.
Lil Durk returns on March 11, with his new album, 7220. The Chicago rapper didn't release a solo project in 2021, but instead opted to put out The Voice of the Heroes, his joint album with Lil Baby, and the OTF compilation Loyal Bros. The new LP will have 17 tracks including the singles "AHHH HA," "Pissed Me Off" and "Broadway Girls" with controversial country music star Morgan Wallen. The latter peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard U.S. Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
Benny The Butcher is also dropping his latest album, Tana Talk 4, on March 11. The Buffalo, N.Y. rapper has been gaining momentum for the past few years with projects like Burden of Proof, Plugs I Met 2 and various appearances on projects from his Griselda brethren and others. Now, he's back with the forth installment in his Tana Talk series. First believed to be dropping in February, the album was moved to March. Production from DJ Premier, The Alchemist and more will be included. TT4 will feature the previously released single "Johnny P's Caddy" featuring J. Cole, which dropped in early February.
The month will start off with King Von's first posthumous album, What It Means to Be King. The project drops on the first Friday of the month, March 4. What It Means to Be King was announced in early February and will serve as the follow-up to Von's debut album, Welcome to O'Block, which was released a week before the Chicago rhymer was shot and killed in Atlanta on Nov. 6, 2020. The new album is spearheaded by the single "Don't Play That" featuring 21 Savage.
