Ariana Grande is one of the highest-paid and most-popular celebrities on the planet at the moment. She has managed to attain the kind of pop-star mega-fame that has recently seemed extinct. She has commanded the world’s attention with one viral moment after the next; first with the surrealistic vision of ‘no tears left to cry’, then with the rom-com satire ‘thank u, next’ and the flashy girl-power visuals of ‘7 rings’. From a string of surprise singles to releasing two back-to-back albums in a short span of time and her openly revealing public persona, Grande has redefined what it means to be a pop star today. Grande has also become the first artist since The Beatles in 1964 to monopolise the top three spots of the Billboard Hot 100 with ‘7 rings’, ‘break up with your girlfriend, I’m bored’ and ‘thank u, next’, respectively.
On the other hand, we have Miley Cyrus, who has been in the spotlight right from the Hannah Montana days. Her music has spanned a range of styles, including pop, country pop, and hip hop. The ballad “Wrecking Ball,” became Miley Cyrus’s first song to top the Billboard singles chart. She has always been an engaging performer with a soul-filled voice. Miley Cyrus is making some of the best pop songs she has made in years. Her songs have a vibrant feel that fills you up with energy and some songs hit the perfect chords of the heart. She has given a new definition to pop music and has proved to be the queen of pop music.
Let us know who you feel is the new queen of pop music.
