Following a 2017 that saw 14-member hip-hop collective Brockhampton (led by Kevin Abstract) release their Saturation trilogy and ascend to the forefront of music, the group's first major label album, Iridescence debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and R&B/Hip-Hop charts. The feat marks another milestone in the group's meteoric rise over the last two years, as they've released four critically acclaimed albums and toured the world. The self-proclaimed, "Best boy band since One Direction," features six diverse vocalists who take turns shining on highlights like "New Orleans," "Weight," "Honey" and "San Marcos." "With Iridescence, Brockhampton pushes experimentation to its absolute limits, stretching the boundaries of what can be considered "rap," all the while keeping their freewheeling exploration surprisingly well-rooted in just that. The band – and its music – is all the better for it, rewarding the intrepid listener who is willing to set aside arbitrary classifications and dive in, just the way Brockhampton has into their sweeping musical melange" (Uproxx).
