Best female pop artist of 2017 so far: Rihanna or Katy Perry?

While female singers have been kind of absent from the charts in 2017, there's no shortage of pop divas. In fact, Rihanna's success from "Anti" carried over into 2017 with her 30th top 10 hit "Love on the Brain." Not only that, but she's on track to having one of the summer's biggest anthem with "Wild Thoughts." Katy Perry is one of the few pop divas to drop a #1 hit album with "Witness." But which pop singer will own the rest of 2017? 🎤

Rihanna steadily tops herself and reaches new feats. "Love on the Brain" became RiRi's landmark 30th top 10 hit single on the Billboard Hot 100 in early 2017. But that's not the only records she crushed, RiRi also broke Billboard's dry spell of not having any female pop singers in the top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 with her summer anthem with DJ Khalid and Bryson Tiller, "Wild Thoughts." 

Below are some lyrics from "Wild Thoughts," per Genius.

🎶I don't know if you could take it
Know you wanna see me nakey, nakey, naked
I wanna be your baby, baby, baby🎶
🎶Wild, wild, wild
Wild, wild, wild thoughts
Wild, wild, wild
When I'm with you, all I get is wild thoughts🎶

Last year, Beyoncé, Adele, Sia, Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Arianna Grande were all on top. Katy released her latest album "Witness" in June. And many KatyCats argue that she's refreshed and better than ever. And Katy has new hits to prove it: "Chained to the Rhythm" and "Bon Appétit" featuring Migos and "Swiss Swiss" featuring Nicki Minaj.

Below are some significant lyrics to "Swiss Swiss," also thanks to Genius.

🎤Swish, swish, bish
Another one in the basket
Can't touch this
Another one in the casket🎤
