I've taken a huge interest in Pop Music lately.
And this thread's to discuss the females that ruling the genre right now


Mine are currently:

The Saturdays

Their new album, Wordshaker is really good.
"Forever Is Over"

Pixie Lott

Catchy songs. Umm, her shoot in FHM was fantastic.
"Mama Do (uh oh, uh oh)"

Lady GaGa

Probably going to be the least respected out of these lot, but I think her music's alright nonetheless.
"Just Dance"

Bat For Lashes

Her songs are based on dreams, so they really do tell a story. A must-listen for fans of concept albums.
"Pearl's Dream"

Shakira

The title track of her new album. A few good songs on there.
I find her voice annoying on every other song.
"She Wolf"

Little Boots

Catchy, electronic stuff.
"Remedy"

Lykke Li

Not sure what I like about her, but I think she's quite creative. No so much eccentric, though.
"Little Bit"

Au Revoir Simone

More catchy, electronic stuff.
"Dark Halls"

Little Boots gave me a big foot (bad, I know)

Catch 22 is a catchy song.

Would Sara Bareilles and A Fine Frenzy fall under pop? I don't really think so but you decide. They're great.

And Lights.

A Fine Frenzy! Forgot about her!

Rachael Yamagata, Joanna Newsom, My Brightest Diamond and Maria Taylor are great similar artists to her.

She's great!

Also, speaking of great, Emmy the Great is also... great.

Well I'll certainly mention a few off the bat.

Florence & The Machine
Whilst technically a band, most of the music is written by Florence Welsh. Great voice, brilliant arrangements, allover great music. Not necessarily 100% pop, but they really deserve mentions anywhere

"Drumming Song"

Paloma Faith
Pop, soul and a teensy bit of slow rock condensed into 10 tracks on her debut album. Her first single, Stone Cold Sober, is one of the most addictive things I've heard in a long time.

Alexandra Burke and Cheryl Cole have both released annoyingly catchy pop songs recently.
I know you think that I'm someone you can trust.
But I'm scared i'll get scared and i swear i'll try to nail you back up.

Sara Bareilles does I believe, and she's absolutely fantastic, definately worthy of a mention. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdE5nrYA5pw
