M.I.A. / Matangi / Interscope

In the midst of her lawsuit with the NFL for flipping the bird during last year’s Beyoncé-fest Super Bowl show, Maya Arulpragasam is dropping her fourth album since taking on the moniker of M.I.A. back in 2005. In terms of politically relevant lyrical content, forward-thinking aesthetic sense and wide sonic influences, M.I.A. might be the most interesting female artist breaking Top 40 charts and Matangi should be a nice refresher to her work. Lucky for us fans in South Texas, she’ll be at Austin’s Fun Fun Fun just days after the album’s drop date. (See “Fall Concerts”) —MS

R. Kelly / Black Panties / RCA/Sony

Shoutout to R. Kelly for naming the tracks on his new album like an R&B sextape—see “Poetic Sex,” “Throw Money on You” and “Fuckin’ with the Lights On.” But at this point, maybe an official, non-water sports sextape soundtrack is the last frontier for a man with 54 million albums sold, a 33-part music video and his own skit on Chappelle’s Show. While “My Story,” Kellz’ new single with ATL emcee 2 Chainz, can’t hold a candle to his career-making hits, if Black Panties produces one “Ignition”-caliber banger from a collection of otherwise B-level porn R&B, it’s all good. —MS

NOVEMBER 12

Lady Gaga / ARTPOP / Interscope
After a hip injury forced her to cancel 22 shows earlier this year, Lady Gaga is back in everyone’s face: she will appear in Robert Rodríguez’s Machete Kills on October 11 (see “Fall Films” ), and a month later will release her new album. According to Interscope, the album will be released in conjunction with an app described as “a musical and visual engineering system that combines music, art, fashion and technology,” and which promises the user will share in the “adrenaline of fame.” Whatever. —EL
