Ultimate Fan Army: Daydreamers or Swifties?
For more than a year, fan armies have participated in a variety of polls and debates dedicated to the finest icons in all of pop-music, repping the young pop stars they "stan" for. And now the Tylt wants to honor today's most mobilized fan bases by crowning the Ultimate Fan Army of 2017.
Ultimate Fan Army—it's a cool title to have, but there are NOT any real losers. Y'all have been the absolute best this year, so no one goes home empty-handed: losing fan armies will be honored with their own unique title and the opportunity to pick the next Tylt debate featuring their favorite artist. Fan armies, it's time to get in formation. Who reps their favorite young pop star the hardest?
Adele is one of the most prolific singers of the modern era. At the age of 29, she has won swept the top three Grammy categories twice—Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Album of the Year.
Her powerful tone, torch songs, and lyrical content are relatable to a diverse pool of people, fueling her fan base far and wide. The Daydreamers have predicted Adele would win many awards in polls, and call 'em psychic in many instances. They don't just daydream (named after a significant Adele's song), but they also make it happen.
Taylor is one of the most successful artists under 30. She's not just successful in terms of popularity but also in terms of critical acclaim. The young pop diva has won Album of the Year twice at the Grammys. While the Swifties don't get to vote, they buy her music in drives and single the gospel of Taylor's considerable songwriting skills.
Taylor has faced lots of backlash and controversy, being called a snake by other celebrities. But her new hit "Look What You Made Me Do" is clear indication that she has persevered. It took Taylor to dethrone the monster smash "Despacito" atop the Billboard Hot 100, and just shows that the Swifties will always stand behind their girl.
Taylor famously says in her new song, "I'm sorry, the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now. Why? Oh, 'cause she's dead!" Welp, the Swifties have definitely kept her alive.
