Ultimate Fan Army: Rihanna Navy 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. You all have been the absolute best this year, and each round the losing fan armies will be honored with their own unique title to represent their fight and have 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?
Don't forget to vote for all these first round face-offs:
Rihanna broke a long Billboard Hot 100 drought of no female artists in the top five earlier this summer with her hit "Wild Thoughts." And she's no stranger to breaking Billboard records with her smashes. The 29-year-old pop icon has already scored 31 top 10 pop hits on the Billboard Hot 100. These are just the #1 singles that broke into the top 10.
Not only that, but the Navy has stood by RiRi's side in the majority of Tylt polls featuring the Bad Gal. No matter if it's an award show bracket or "Best Of" series, the Navy stay stanning for their queen. They've been by her side since 2005, but her fan base has only grown stronger over the years, especially since she named them the Navy after her movie "Battlefield."
Below is only an example of how mobilize the Navy gets.
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 on the Grammys, their dedication to buying her music and uplifting her praised songwriting skills has contributed to her recognition and impact over the years.
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 replace the monster smash "Despacito" atop the Billboard Hot 100, and it goes to the show 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.
