Entertainment Weekly's "10 Summer Albums We Can't Wait to Hear"

    Swizz Beatz, Haute Living
    Hip-hop's go-to producer steps back to the mic as a leading man, bringing along wife Alicia Keys, Bono, Jay-Z, M.I.A., and Kanye West and introducing a new sophistication to his frenetic beats. Late summer
    Colbie Caillat, All of You
    The sunny Californian's third album finds her co-writing with Ryan Tedder, jamming with boyfriend/guitarist Justin Young, and inviting rapper Common over for a guest spot (''Favorite Song''). July 12
    Selena Gomez and the Scene, When the Sun Goes Down
    The Disney actress-turned-singer and her backing band expand their sonic horizons on this third outing, with songwriting assists from Britney Spears and Katy Perry. June 28
    David Cook, This Loud Morning
    The seventh-season Idol winner teams up with eclectic songwriters (Ryan Tedder, Better Than Ezra frontman Kevin Griffin) for more shimmering guitar anthems, including first single ''The Last Goodbye.'' June 28
    Beyoncé, 4
    After a yearlong break from the biz, Queen B is back with 4, her (yep) fourth solo studio set—inspired, she says, by Nigerian musician Fela Kuti, '90s R&B, and rock concerts she hit during her time off. Look, too, for cuts penned by R&B stalwarts The-Dream and Babyface. June 28
    Pitbull, Planet Pit
    With two caliente singles already thumping in clubs — and help from hitmakers like Dr. Luke, David Guetta, and Ne-Yo—saying Mr. 305’s planet is the place to be is an understatement. June 21
    Lil Wayne, Tha Carter IV
    The last chapter of Wayne's Carter series sold a million copies in its first week of release. On this disc, expect the raucous rapper to do it again with new rhymes that reflect his recent jail time. June 21

    Bon Iver, Bon Iver
    Acclaimed folkie Justin Vernon recruited a pack of veterans (among them Arcade Fire saxophonist Colin Stetson) for a fresh batch of swirling quiet storms. June 21

    Owl City, All Things Bright and Beautiful
    The ''Fireflies'' crooner brings collaborators, including fellow synth-popper Lights and rapper Shawn Chrystopher, into his basement for more electronic symphonies. June 14

    Eminem and Royce Da 5'9", Hell: The Sequel
    After cooking their beef — the two MCs famously feuded for years — Em and underground star Royce reunite (under the name Bad Meets Evil) for what will likely be a rap nerd's fantasy come true. June 14
