Even though this was the year of the comeback for many of pop’s biggest stars — Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, etc. — 2013 has its fair share of bright newcomers. Take a look and see the nine artists who left the biggest impressions on us this year and let us know what you think!
Although we didn’t get any new music from Florence Welch this year, we passed our days by obsessing over new band MSMR. Singer Lizzy Plapinger’s voice is just as captivating as Florence and her hair, though not fiery red, also an eye-catching hook that has us reaching for the hair dye.
Because you can never have too many female rappers join the rap game. This year, we had two new faves to add to the growing list of female MCs: Angel Haze and Iggy Azalea. The latter may flaunt her model looks, but spits fiery verses that can burn some of music’s biggest names. Watch out.
Even though Zedd’s debut album Clarity was technically released last year, we’re still spinning his his single — featuring another up-and-comer Foxes — and we definitely want to hear more from both artists.
