The sophomore slump is something that every new artist in the industry goes through. If not first-hand experience, pretty much all artists experience the fear of going through one. And it's completely understandable - all eyes are on you, and the expectations are high. The public is anticipating something just as good, if not even better than your debut. And, sadly, many artists never manage to live up to the expectations of the public and critics. However recently, we've seen some excellent sophomore albums that are great not only from a critical acclaim standpoint, but have also managed to propel their respective artists to new heights: Dua Lipa - Future Nostalgia Halsey - Hopeless Fountain Kingdom Doja Cat - Hot Pink (just to name a few) But today, I wanted to shed light on some sophomore / follow-up albums that flopped commercially, but were actually really good (maybe even better than their predecessors). The industry is extremely unpredictable. Especially these days - it's become so saturated that new artists come and go on a monthly basis. And it's a shame that so many artists become one-hit wonders despite releasing flawless bodies of work. Feel free to share your examples.
