Contemporary rhythm and blues artist Jon Bellion released his new album, “Glory Sound Prep.” on Nov. 9. It usually takes a couple of times to listen to newly released music in order for me to grasp on and like it. But when I listened to this new album, I instantly knew I liked the sound of it.

Bellion’s release of his debut album, “The Human Condition,” was such a success, that it granted his most successful song to date, “All Time Low.” It rose to the top of the charts hitting number 16 on the US Billboard Hot 100. But “All Time Low” wasn’t the only song he gained success on. His other songs in his albums included, “80’s Films”(sic) and “Maybe IDK,” which hit his next hit tracks back in 2017.

Bellion released his first teasing song from his new album on Jan. 25,  2018, through a snippet on Instagram. His first song on his album was finally released, “Conversations With My Wife,” on Oct 19. The following week, within six days, he released two more songs called “JT” and “Stupid Deep.” On Friday, Bellion finally released his full album.

Considering his song  “All Time Low” was such a hit, his new song “Blu” sounds pretty similar to each other. Almost as if “Blu” is a sequel to “All Time Low”.

As I was listening to his album, I noticed in his song “The Internet” that he was talking about struggling with his happiness when these lyrics played:  “Life became dangerous the day we all became famous/No one cares if you’re happy, just as long as you claim it.”

I was never into his music from the start. After listening to his release, I’m still not into his music as much as I expected when I was first listening to it. The more I listened to the album, the more I didn’t like it. While contemporary rhythm and blues is my cup of tea, these songs from his release weren’t my favorite, and I have no desire to listen to them again.
