Pop is one of the most important musical genres in history. For several years, different artists have launched themselves into the market, offering songs that have remained in the memory of many people. Now, have you ever wondered which are the most outstanding women in this sector?
The truth is that many of them have achieved great hits throughout their career. Some of them have even been labeled as "princesses" of this genre. That is to say, they not only have a good musical trajectory but they continue to release many successful songs. Here we will tell you which are the most influential women in pop music.
Although she is now delving into the rock field, Miley Cyrus was a real "boom" in the pop industry. She started her career at a very young age when she played the character of Hannah Montana on Disney. However, by 2007 she released her first solo album.
Since then, Miley Cyrus has become one of the most popular singers on the planet, winning hundreds of awards and accolades from critics and fans alike. She is even considered one of the few young actors who managed to become successful singers. Her musical style continues to be pop, although she incorporates rock and country sounds, achieving a very effective combination, and her husky voice is her most distinctive feature!
Rihanna is known for being one of the best pop singers in history. She has managed to maintain this musical style throughout her career, although it is also true that she incorporated Caribbean rhythms into most of her songs. Therefore, she is known as the Princess of R&B and the most influential artist of the 21st century.
During her career, she has had 14 #1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100. She also has more than 200 million digital downloads, making her one of the best-selling artists of all time. Fans love her, but so do industry critics. She is currently on a musical hiatus but is expected to return to the industry in the short term.
She is one of the best pop artists of recent times. For example, in 2008 she managed to win the Grammy Awards for the best new artist of 2008. Since then, she has become one of the most important singers, with 11 Grammys, 1 Emmy, 25 Billboard Music Awards, and 6 MTV Video Music Awards.
According to Billboard magazine, she was named in 2019 the "woman of the decade." In this way, the American Music Awards recognized her as the "artist of the decade." Currently, she remains very active in terms of her albums, as in 2020 she has released two: Folklore and Evermore. However, Swift is also initiating re-recordings lately of her older albums. In 2021 she re-recorded Fearless and Red, which were very well received.
She is considered the "new queen of pop," thanks to her great commercial successes. In 2018, she started to become popular with her music, as she won two Brit Awards for British female solo artist and UK breakthrough artist. By her second album, Future Nostalgia, she was already a real success.
For example, that album earned her 6 Grammy nominations and became her first number 1 album in the United Kingdom. In 2021, Time magazine named her as one of the 100 most influential women in the world. Every song she releases is a real sensation, reaching millions of plays. Dua Lipa is changing the traditional pop sound by fusing it with dance and contemporary R&B rhythms. Her songs tend to have a very prominent sensual tone.
She is the princess of pop and has become one of the best artists of all time. Her first solo album, 1998's Baby One More Time, was the best-selling album by a teenage solo artist. By 2000, Oops! I Did It Again sold 1.3 million copies in its first week of release in the United States.
Britney Spears has sold over 100 million records worldwide, making her one of the essential artists in history. She is the seventh most searched artist in the history of YouTube and her success continues to date. Since 2019 she has been on an artistic hiatus, due to legal conflicts. Thousands of fans created the #FreeBritney movement, which influenced the 2021 court ruling that frees her from her father's guardianship of her artistic rights.
