Album Review: Loyle Carner - hugo | Gigwise
It’s difficult to comprehend Loyle Carner’s journey since the release of his debut album, Yesterday’s Gone, back in 2017. Five years later and the British rap icon has released his third album, hugo. The ten-track album marks a clear turning point in Carner’s work – it’s noticeably different in tone from his sophomore album Not Waving, But Drowning. hugo is simultaneously political and personal. It highlights the complex relationship between race, fame and Carner’s new identity as a father.
