So, in 2008 we were given the musical births of Lady Gaga and Katy Perry as we know and love today. In 1998, Britney Spears was born into the pop world.

I think we're due another "Pop Princess" awakening soon. We haven't had that stratospheric, commercial female "larger than life" star for a while.

Will 2018 give us another Pop Icon on the levels of Britney/Xtinct/Gaga/Katy? Will we even see a new female star impact the way they did in their debuts, ever again?

Well, did we get any in 2015 after 1995 brought us Spice Girls and 2005 gave us Rihanna?

EDIT: we got SG in '96, my bad.

I think it's very plausible. Obviously they couldn't be a huge #1 debut but if a catchy song gets noticed by enough people it could happen!

Well if you include Katy Perry in that analysis, it's worth remembering that while she had an instant mega-smash with "I Kissed A Girl", her initial success was strong but not blockbuster. It wasn't until her "Teenage Dream" album that she cemented her status, so for all we know there's a 'moderately' big artist right now who's on the brink of something similar.

Can't see the streaming crowd getting behind a female pop act in big enough numbers.

It's based on countries selection.
For sample : In many European countries "I Kissed A Girl" and "Hot and Cold" were much bigger than any song from "Teenage Dream".

Check Katy's thread with her top 40 chartruns (full stats for One of the Boys and Teenage Dream eras).

Yeah but in the US they were mid to late 98/08. tongue.gif and with it being a lot more accessible and easier for the UK to get up to speed with music artists than back in them days, I see no reason as to why we can't be up to speed with them too kink.gif

Who's to say we already had one though?

(Actually I think Reputation could build on the success of 1989 if it perfects the "promo single that took off on its own" thing Dark Horse was doing four years ago. That means no premature second single release that hinders LWYMMD nor does it detract or derail from the current era's trajectory.)

If we had to pick one, I'd say Dua Lipa.

Maybe Camila as well.

How is that even relevant? Have you even read or remotely understood the topic?

I just can't see Camila or Dua being the next GaGa/Britney/Rihanna, though I'm sure they'll both remain successful for the next few years. I doubt we'll get one for a while as streaming trends don't really support 'pure pop'.

I disagree with the 10 year-pattern, you totally made that up... i'd say there has been a continous of female singers popping out every couple years in the last 30 years
but I agree with the last post, now cos of streaming it's more difficult as streaming is biased against female pop singers unless you make a deal with spotify alal taylor

1984 madonna
1985 whitney
1988 kylie
1990 mariah carey
1994 celine dion
1996 alanis
1999 britney spears, christina aguilera
2001 alicia keys
2002 pink
2003 beyonce
2006 rihanna
2008 adele
2009 lady gaga
2012 taylor swift
2014 ariana grande

I think rather than female, the next huge star to emerge will probably be Post Malone, like Drake, I'm getting Hotline Bling teas from Rockstar. Dua and Camila I feel will the closest to a Gaga/Katy sort of thing, but females can't smash like that in the streaming era really, I think it comes down to the songs really. New Rules and Havana for exmple struck the exact right chord whereas Lost In Your Light bombed for Dua.
