I love pop music and I think the girls are reigning since the beginning of the 21st century. This women domination started whit Britney & Xtina, there of course were some big predecessors like Janet or Madonna, but this new era started with them and later on came all this female superstars we know today.
So I decided to do a top 10 with my favorite female artists in pop music. Some of them might be very popular right now and some of them may not, but they sure have had great careers and deserve recognition.
10. Nelly Furtado
She might not be very popular right now, but remember her golden era when she had all those hits on her album Loose. I love her music and though I didn’t like much her Spanish album, she had some hits on there too! Her latest album had some good songs too, so I can’t wait for her to come with something even better.
Favorite Songs: Say It Right, Promiscuous, Fly Like A Bird
9. Miley Cyrus
I love Miley since she was still on Disney Channel. I love her past albums a lot, but Bangerz is truly one of my favorite records from last year! I wasn’t really bothered by all the sexual attention she was causing, but I’m starting to get a little bit pissed with the things she’s doing on her tour. Just let her be and she’ll stop doing things like that. The truth is that she’s got a great voice and makes great music, why care about other things?
Favorite Songs: #GETITRIGHT, Bangerz, Bottom Of The Ocean
8. Kylie Minogue
She’s the Australian Queen and she’s had so many hits that it’s impossible not to include her in this list. I love her Fever and Body Language eras, but my favorite album of Kylie is the late 90s Impossible Princess. Her latest album and the new one she released last week weren’t as good as her past work, but I’m sure she’ll bring us something great again soon!
Favorite Songs: Cowboy Style, I Can’t Get You Out Of My Head, Slow
She’s the queen of the charts right now, everything she does is a hit and all the artists are fighting to feature her on their records. I love everything she’s done since she started in 2005 with Pon De Replay. Her songs, sometimes, get a little bit boring or repetitive, but that’s because we hear them everywhere we go! On the radio, at the clubs, on TV. She’s just reigning the music industry right now and she will continue for sure.
Favorite Songs: Diamonds, Unfaithful, Take A Bow
6. Gwen Stefani
I love Gwen as a solo artist and with No Doubt. She’s one of my favorite female artists because of her unique style and the amazing music she does. Even today I listen to all her songs like they were new! I wish she released more albums by herself, but with only two albums she’s already gained a place on this list and our hearts.
Favorite Songs: Hollaback Girl, Cool, 4 In The Morning
5. Christina Aguilera
Like I’ve said before, it all started with Britney and Xtina. She’s got one of the greatest voices of all time and though her last album wasn’t very good, everything she’s done is beyond amazing! Stripped and Back To Basics are two of the greatest albums in pop history and her song writing on both albums is amazing. She’s now finished her work on The Voice, so I’m hoping she’ll come up with something great soon!
Favorite Songs: Can’t Hold Us Down, I’m Ok, Candyman
As you may already know, I love Beyoncé! I can’t wait to see her on tour later this month. I’ve loved her since she was on Destiny’s Child, but her solo career is even greater than the girl band’s. I love all the albums she’s released and her newest stuff is just crazy!!! But in my heart I will always love her first two albums more than anything! She’s evolved a lot and in a good way as an artist, but those two albums are just unbeatable!
Favorite Songs: Crazy In Love, Deja Vu, Partition
She’s the real QUEEN of pop and she’s known how to reinvent herself every time she puts on a new record! All of her albums are amazing, but I specially like her late 90s and early 2000s era. She’s still one of the most relevant females in pop and she’ll always be the queen. I’ve heard she’s working on new music and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with this time. One thing is clear, it’ll be amazing!
Favorite Songs: Drowned World, Don’t Tell Me, American Life
2. Mariah Carey
I have to say my obsession with Mariah is quite new. I started listening to her music over a year ago and I fell in love with everything she’s done! Her flawless voice is the best voice my ears have ever heard and her songwriting and producing skills are just amazing. One of the things I love the most about MC is that she’s true to her artistry and would never sell herself to get a number one or more sales. I love her latest single You’re Mine (Eternal) and though it didn’t do so well on the charts I don’t care and neither should she! Her music is a gift and I have to thank her for making it! I can’t wait for the new album Mimi!
Favorite Songs: Always Be My Baby, Emotions, We Belong Together
1. Britney Spears
Again, it all started with her! Britney is and will always be the princess of pop and though you may not like her, or she might not have a great voice, she was the one that open the path for all the artists that are coming today. I know Madonna opened it for Britney, but it was Britney the one that changed the rules and reigned over a decade! Her latest album Britney Jean was a little disappointing for me because I was expecting something more personal like she said, but it still has great songs on it! Everything she’s done since the beginning is amazing pop music and I don’t care what all the haters say, she’ll always be an icon and she’ll always be relevant, without her the music industry wouldn’t be where it is right now and you better thank her for being as amazing as she is!
Favorite Songs: I’m A Slave 4 U, Piece Of Me, Me Against The Music
Do you agree with my list? I missed some of my favorite artists like Lana Del Rey, but she only got one album and we’ve known her for a short time. Maybe when she releases Ultraviolence she’ll find her spot on my list!
Like I always say this is based on my personal opinion only! Hope you enjoy reading!
