Today we celebrate the 10 year album anniversaries of 3 iconic pop releases. It’s hard to believe these records are 10 years old, considering how frequently they are still referenced in pop culture, and also because 2008 feels like yesterday. 2008 brought us so many incredible bops, and that will forever hold a nostalgic place in our hearts.
