not including britney spears

listen music elitism is all shit i should know i’m a music major and i love britney spears completely unironically and what’s more i’m pretty sure most of my division does too and that includes the professors okay you like what you like and tdlr britney spears is probably better than mozart



1. Lemonade - Beyonce

I think this album should be atop of everyone’s 2016 list. Lemonade has quickly become not only my favorite Beyoncé album, but one of my favorite albums of all time. Beyoncé successfully moves across genres, most notably reclaiming rock & roll and country to their black origins.

2. My Woman - Angel Olsen

To be honest, before the release of My Woman, I had no idea who Angel was. But, this album has most definitely put her on my radar in the future. Angel provides a sort of psychedelic rock sound reminiscent of the ‘60s, and covers the topic of love with such emotion that it is tear-jerking.

3. Puberty 2 - Mitski

Mitski is another artist that I have just discovered this year, and I’m so glad I did. Appropriately titled Puberty 2 for its hormonal nature, the album covers topics such as love, mental health, and societal norms. Another definite tear-jerker.

4. A Seat at the Table - Solange

With this album, Solange further proves her creativity as an Alt/R&B artist. She asserts black pride and describes her struggles with depression on “Cranes in the Sky”. A Seat at the Table solidifies Solange’s place as an individual in the music industry, not to be compared with her older sister.

5. Dangerous Woman - Ariana Grande

Dangerous Woman is Ariana’s most daring release to date and definitely my personal favorite. Permanently shedding her image as “the girl from Victorious”, Ariana delivers a cohesive, sexy, and feel-good dance/pop album with emotional moments such as “Thinking Bout You”.

6. Emotion: Side-B - Carly Rae Jepsen

Who else could release a nearly flawless pop album full of B-sides? The queen of modern ‘80s pop sound really outdoes herself with this one and proves that her critically acclaimed 2015 release “Emotion” was no fluke.

7. Lady Wood - Tove Lo

With Lady Wood, Tove Lo once again provides honest lyricism about sex and love accompanied by atmospheric production. Tove keeps it simple (no pun intended) while still remaining effortlessly edgy. It definitely deserves more recognition than it has gotten.

8. Glory - Britney Spears

The princess of pop has provided her loyal fans with her best release since “Circus”. Britney stays true to herself while delivering an album that keeps up with the times in its production and lyrics.

9. Nightride - Tinashe

While this is just a mixtape for the fans to listen to while they wait for the release of her sophomore album, it is still one of my favorite releases of the year. Tinashe pairs a soft hip/hop sound with thoughtful lyrics that makes for great music to relax to. 

10. Anti - Rihanna

The final spot was the hardest to choose, but Rihanna definitely deserves it. Delivering her best album to date, Rihanna transcends genres from Alt/R&B (“Same Ol’ Mistakes” & “Yeah I Said It”) to Pop (“Kiss it Better” & “Work”)

Honorable Mentions:

Blonde - Frank Ocean, The Altar - Banks, The Colour In Anything - James Blake, Joanne - Lady Gaga, Vroom Vroom (EP) - Charli XCX, For All We Know - NAO, Glory Days - Little Mix, Starboy - The Weeknd, and Tkay - Tkay Maidza

im sick of janet jackson not getting the credit she deserves for reinventing pop music and live performances! ms. jackson created an emphasis on dancing that has influenced legions of artists since her, including britney spears, jennifer lopez, beyonce, and rihanna. she tackled taboos like female sexuality, homophobia, gender, racism, war, poverty, homelessness, drug abuse, etc. she is a black woman who has been out there pushing boundaries and spreading social consciousness since the 1980s, all based on her love for all people. shes created some of the greatest and most iconic music, videos, and performances of ALL time, yet it seems her legacy has been erased because of the 2004 super bowl wardrobe malfunction. people saw her nipple for 0.000000481281 seconds and she was consequently blacklisted from mtv and almost every radio station and music channel across the world. you know sometimes mysogynoir isnt so hard to spot… anyway, stop sleeping on the living legend that is janet jackson.

😶- What is your character’s biggest secret?

Everyone expects Erik to be a huge fan of classical music and opera (which he is), but his favorite music is actually 80s and 90s pop. More specifically, he’s a big fan of Britney Spears. Not a single person knows about this, including Charles. Erik intends to keep it that way.
This Is How Much Celebrities Get Paid To Endorse Soda And Unhealthy Food
Beyonce got $50 million to push Pepsi. Justin Timberlake: $6 million in a deal with McDonald's. A study describes the lucrative deals celebs popular with teens and young adults inked to sell food.

Imagine getting paid an estimated $6 million for your involvement in this three-word jingle: “I’m Lovin’ It.” Yep, Justin Timberlake inked a lucrative deal with McDonald’s. (Guess you could say he wants you to “buy buy buy.”)

Or how about earning an estimated $50 million to promote Pepsi products? That’s the endorsement deal mega-star Beyonce signed up for back in 2012.

A new study published in the journal Pediatrics describes the lucrative endorsement deals of 65 music celebrities — including Britney Spears, Maroon 5, Timberlake and other stars popular with teens and young adults. These celebrities promoted 57 different food and beverage brands (see chart), ranging from soda to energy drinks to pizza, Pop Tarts and candy.

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga, Barbra Streisand, Billy Joel and others have signed an open letter from Billboard magazine to Congress about stopping gun violence in America. Billboard posted the letter and signatures on its website Thursday. There are over 200 signatures from musicians and executives including Cher, Jennifer Lopez, Elvis Costello, Britney Spears, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Sting and Katy Perry. Billboard wrote: “We call on Congress to do more to prevent the gun violence that kills more than 90 Americans every day and injures hundreds more.” Billboard said its editors were horrified by the recent shooting in Orlando, Florida, and Christina Grimmie’s death, and felt connected to both incidents because the “tragedies occurred where musicians and music fans gathered.” Alicia Keys, James Corden, Questlove, Selena Gomez, Stevie Nicks and Bob Weir also signed the letter.
