How I miss the days of artist releasing albums every year, every other year at the most and sometimes they'd release two albums in same year.

*Jamiroquai---I'm enjoying their new album so much but I hate the long wait between albums

*Lauryn Hill----at this point,I think it's safe to say that she's probably NOT gonna release any more albums,lol

*Sade----but the thing is,their fans are extremely patient and loyal.When they finally do release a new album,it will be huge.

*D'Angelo

*Maxwell

*Stevie Wonder---I give him a pass,though.He's released a ton of albums in his long career.If he never releases another album,that's OK.We have more than enough Stevie Wonder music to enjoy in our lifetime.

I had to go back and look. Michael Jackson would have something out every year if you include the Jackson albums once they went to CBS they had releases from 1976 1977,1978 then Mike's Off the Wall in 79. The Jacksons had a release in 1980 and 1981 then came Thriller and that was pretty much it for them

How about artists who puts an album out every year (or to stretch it every two years) since their debut? Besides Prince.

True and that's not even mentioning the Jackson 5 years at Motown.

So "Michael Jackson (from 1982 onward)" would be a better description. One can make the same argument for Phil Collins with Genesis. Ever since Phil joined, the band dropped an album in 1971, '72, '73, '74, 2 albums in '76, one in '78, 1980, Phil made his solo debut in '81 when Genesis also dropped Abacab, Phil had an album '82, Genesis in '83, Phil in '85, Genesis in '86, Phil in '89, Genesis in '91, Phil in '93, Phil in '96 and then Genesis in '97. That's a pretty productive streak and when you take note of this, it's not surprising why Phil was such a ubiquitous figure in the 80's.

  • White Trash with Money (2006)
  • Big Dog Daddy (2007)
  • That Don't Make Me a Bad Guy (2008)

  • Bullets in the Gun (2010)

If you include their Christmas album, Lady Antebellum has released four albums over the last four years.

It was about 9 years between Love Deluxe and Lovers Rock and 9 between Lovers Rock and Soldier of Love.

Frank did release 2 albums in '16.

With Maxwell and D having released albums in the last 16 months . . . Badu is now on the clock . . .

Bilal went almost a decade between 1st Born Second and Airtight's Revenge. But he's been relatively prolific since.

After 4 years. Him releasing 2 albums in the same year means no one should be expecting any music with his name on it for at least the next 8 years.

Does he really count? He's never relased anything outside of OutKast by himself like Big Boi has, so to me it is OutKast that hasn't released anything. André has done several guest appearances on other acts songs, so he's not exactly totally inactive. I count a collabo as a release, so there's not really a big gap.

Fair, but when it comes to the major talents in R&B in the last 3 decades, 4 years isn't terribly long. Sad, but true.

Fair, but for all intents and purposes, TLB was a solo album, and the gap remains, as 3 Stacks hasn't released anything solo or within OutKast since 2006's Idlewild.

"Releases" are different from featured appearances, which do not generally count as a release within a discography.

He's been featured on dozens of tracks over the last several years, but he hasn't released anything.

That's what I mean. If he's never had a solo album out, he can't have a gap between releases. Only OutKast can. On my list I didn't post people that are inactive, that can be a lot of perfomers. But that there are big gaps between actual albums like Sade, which is what I thought the OP was asking. Or that upcoming Chuck Berry album. His last album came out in 1979.
