Wednesday 10/14/2020 12am ET: Feature LP 2020: Bon Jovi – 2020

2020 is the fifteenth studio album by American rock band Bon Jovi. The album was initially set for release on May 15, 2020 through Island, but was later pushed back to October 2, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The album’s debut single “Unbroken” was released in November 2019, and the second radio single “Limitless” was released on February 20, 2020. Both songs feature music videos. “American Reckoning” was released on July 10, 2020 along with a lyric video, and “Do What You Can” was released as a single on July 23, 2020. The music video for “Do What You Can” was released on August 25, 2020.

While in quarantine, lead singer Jon Bon Jovi wrote two more songs that would be included in the final album: “Do What You Can”, which represents the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and “American Reckoning”, a protest song about George Floyd’s death, and written in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Before the postponement, the songs “Luv Can” and “Shine” were initially part of the album, but they were replaced with “Do What You Can” and “American Reckoning”. The tracklist order also changed, as the first version of the album was set to start with “Beautiful Drug” and finish with “Blood in the Water”.
