I'm more excited for the documentary than the album.... the last Sergio album I really listened to over and over was "Encanto." But, this will be one to check out for sure - it's cool to see him writing more of the songs.

In news articles, why are new albums now "dropped?" I liked when they were "released" better.

Although a lot of current music is more like droppings.

I think the word "dropped" developed in the digital age when an artist would simply "drop" a new title onto their website unannounced as a surprise to their followers. I'm not much of a fan of the terminology either.

Yeah, "dropped" needs to go. Only dog turds get "dropped."
