Artist: Jayline
Album name: Fifty Shades of Jay
Genre: drum and bass

Images: The artist copied the design for the book 'fifty shades of grey' but instead he called it 'fifty shades of jay' because his name is Jayline. He did this to make his album stand out.

Typography: The typography the artist has used on his album is easy to read and bold. The artists name 'Jayline' and the title 'Fifty Shades of Jay' and both written in spaced out and easy to read writing. The six songs on the front cover are written with a serif, which makes it stand out and look different to the titles.

Layout: The layout of this album is in the same style as the book fifty shades of grey. There is a grey/silver tie in the background on a blue background. In the bottom left it says the artists name 'Jayline' and in the top right there is the title saying 'Fifty Shades of Jay' and underneath the title there is the list of songs on the album.

Colour: The color of the album is a very dark blue/grey. The tie is in a grey/silver color with a blue tint. The background starts off almost black in the top left corner and becomes more of a blue in the bottom right corner. The text is all in white except the bullet points for the names of the songs.

Artist: Drake
Album name: Take Care
Genre: Rap

Images: Drake is sitting at a table with antiques round him this is because he is trying to get the image of a king. Everything around him looks old fashioned. There is a big lit candle on the table with a golden holder, there is a golden wine glass (wine is expensive and upper class) and there is a little golden bird on the table. There is hand painted pictures in the background in golden frames again to show upper class and wealth. He is also wearing a gold watch with gold chains this is to show that he is rich and to follow the stereotype of rappers. Drakes name isn't on the album front cover, this is because he is so well known he doesn't need to put his name on the front of the album.

Typography: The title is written as if its hand written, almost like a signature. On the back cover of the album there is a list f the songs this is written in spaced out capital letters, this is to make them easy to read and to make them stand out.

Layout: Drake is sitting at a table with antiques round him. The antiques are: a candle, a golden bird, and a golden wine glass. There are old pictures behind him in big gold frames. The name of the album is in the bottom left had corner saying 'takecare'.

Colour: The whole album has a lot of gold on it, this is because gold is a very wealthy colour and drake is trying to show that he has a lot of gold and that he is rich. There is also a lot of back on the album cover, this is because black goes with gold.

Artist: 50 Cent
Album name: Get Rich or Die Trying
Genre: Rap

Images: 50 cent is in the centre of the album cover, There is a glass bullet hole aiming at his chest, and inside the glass bullet hole there is a jesus cross. This is to show that he is wealthy because he can afford jewelry. It also shows that he is religious because it is a cross and it also follows the stereo type of rappers wearing big chains. It also shows that when he was shot nine times god was on his side and he survived. In the top right hand corner his name '50 cent' is in big bold letters, this is to show that he's big and bold. 

Typography: The artists name '50 Cent' is written in big bubble writing, this is to make his name stand out and to make himself look big. The title 'Get rich or die tryin' is written in almost opposite writing. Its small and is written as if its hand written. The writing looks posh and elegant. The list of songs on the back cover is written in bold spaced out letters you can read it easily and so it stands out.
