All week we told you which albums were our most anticipated for 2014. From hip-hop and pop to R&B, indie, rock and EDM, MTV News gazed into our musical magic 8 ball to see which releases are likely to make the most noise in the next 12 months.
Then it was your turn to tell us which ones you were most excited about. And, man, did you. Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, Frank Ocean, Skrillex, Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna and Austin Mahone got lots of mentions via your social feeds but you also let us know which artists you wish we had included in our lists.
Minaj, Lamar and Black Hippy member Schoolboy Q topped the list of albums fans were most psyched about.

Oxymoron easily the #MostAnticipated album of 2014

Swift, Rihanna, Mahone and Ed Sheeran also have fans eager to hear what’s on tap, but they also wondered why we didn’t include Adam Lambert, Lana Del Rey and Jake Miller.

It was a very good year for Frank Ocean and Pharrell, and you told us you hope 2014 is just as good for the Odd Future crooner, as well as rising star Jhené Aiko, Mariah Carey and Solange.

After a year when Avicii and Deadmau5 proved that EDM is as strong an album format as a singles/live genre, you guys are jacked for more music from those two, as well as Hardwell and Skrillex. But you also wish we’d included Calvin Harris, SBTRKT and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.

It’s been a minute since “Pumped Up Kicks” band Foster the People released their debut (two years, actually), but you told us the time is right for their second effort.

Not surprisingly, big-name acts like the Black Keys, Foo Fighters and Linkin Park dominated our Twitter discussion of 2014’s most-anticipated rock releases. Equally unsurprising, given the fact that the Internet was involved, Tokio Hotel’s name kept popping up too.
