August will certainly heat up with some great album releases from your favorite R&B and hip-hop artists.

Kicking off the month is the highly-anticipated debut effort from K. Michelle. The singer's album, 'Rebellious Soul,' will arrive in stores Aug. 13.

If you've been watching her on VH1's reality series 'Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta,' you'd know that the songstress has been working very hard on this project. The 31-year-old songbird just released the throwback-sounding ballad, 'V.S.O.P.,' which has become a summertime love anthem.

On the hip-hop side, A$AP Ferg will be putting in 'Work' when his debut album, 'Trap Lord,' hits stores on Aug. 20. In addition, Odd Future rapper Earl Sweatshirt will drop his debut opus, 'Doris,' on the same day.

But the BIG album release day will come at the end of the month. On Aug. 27, albums by Juicy J, Goodie Mob, Big Sean and the Weeknd will be on store shelves.

So save your pennies, August is going to be a hot month for R&B and hip-hop music.
