AMAs 2017 Favorite Female Artist—Pop/Rock: Rihanna or Lady Gaga?
Rihanna's "Anti" success carried into 2017. "Love on the Brain" became RiRi's 30th top 10 pop hit on the Hot 100, which is considered a landmark in Billboard chart history. Rihanna also ended a dry spell of no female artists in the top 10 on the Hot 100 as a featured artist on "Wild Thoughts" this past summer. The summertime smash with DJ Khaled and Bryson Tiller peaked at #2.
Below are some notable lyrics to "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. 🎶
Gaga started off the year with headlining the 2017 Super Bowl Halftime Show and Coachella. And she gained another pop hit with "Million Reasons," peaking at #4 on the Hot 100. Gaga is also known for her touring and incredible live performances. Unfortunately, Gaga had to postpone her successful "Joanne World Tour," due to health issues and severe physical pain caused by Fibromyalgia.
Still, Gaga slays. Her top-selling album "Joanne" proves just that. While the album is a departure from Gaga's dark pop and dance sound, the country-pop LP is her most introspectively praised album to date. No other female artist in the last year has successfully included a mix of country, rock, and dance into a cohesive pop sound like Gaga.
Below are some significant lyrics to "Million Reasons," per Genius.
🎶 I bow down to pray. I try to make the worst seem better. Lord, show me the way, t cut through all his worn out leather. I've got a hundred million reasons to walk away. But baby, I just need one good one to stay.🎶
