Top Female Pop Singers of our Decade

Female Pop Singers

In the last five to ten years there has been rise in the music industry for female pop singers. Turn on your radio and chances are you have heard at least one of the female pop singers songs that I have listed below. It's a new era for female vocalist I believe. A new era for music. Young female vocalist have turned to DJ's, creating the new "pop" sound and establishing a new fashion of techno beats and trance influenced sounds. Pop music has grown more popular and garnered more attention from used-to-be anti-poppers--due to the change in musical style and tone. The new wave of female pop singers is enough to keep Madonna smiling for many years to come.

The female pop singers posted below have been listed in no particular order. They have been chosen out of their pure talent, mass popularity, and over-the-top theatrics.

Why are the black eyes peas in this list, and then Fergie listed separately? Interesting hub topic but I think you could have spent a little more time on content itself rather than having generic descriptions like "she's won lots of awards."

Black Eyed Peas is a group, not a female vocalist. :) Oh, I think Charice should be there. She has amazing vocals! :)

Fergie isn't listed separately. I'm not sure I follow what you mean here. I felt it necessary to include the Black Eyed Peas because of Fergie being the female vocalist. Sorry if you find my descriptions a little generic. I wrote this for fun, and maybe I'll update some info here in the future and make it a little more content rich.

inaniLoquence,

Isn't Charice a young rising artist? I just did a search on her, and I never knew about her until now.

I have some personal objections to this list, but they aren't worth listing, but I really like the fact that you listed Nicki Minaj as a pop singer. I do not like that in general she is labeled as a hip-hop artist. Her material, her appeal, and her image is pop.

I agree with your statement about Niki Minaj. Her image is more pop.

Hi, KatyCatForLife. I didn't say Rihanna was the best pop singer. When I made the list, I did so in no particular order. Katy Perry is a very excellent vocalist.

The fact that most of the people on this list can't even sing attests to the inaccuracy of this listing.

Well, everybody is entitled to their own personal opinion. :)

Gwen Stefani continues to amaze, sounding identical to her first singles. Her pitch accuracy and control, even singing live is enough to make her #1 in my book. While I like Katy Perry, her live singing reveals significant flaws as is common with many on this list.
