It looks as though 2018 is going to be a real time to be alive, especially if rap extraordinaire CupcaKKe has anything to say about it. After teasing a potential drop at the end of last year, PAPER's Beautiful Person of 2017 has released her sophomore album, Euphorize. May we rejoice.

Hot off a damn excellent collaboration with Charli XCX on her recent mixtape, Pop 2, this latest self-released project comes just a year after CupcaKKe's debut Queen Elizabitch and sees the Chicago native move into a slightly more-produced, and generally cleaner sphere. Despite her famously smutty subject matter, this may just be CupcaKKe's year to move into the mainstream and frankly, she deserves it all and more.
