Who would you nominate as an artist who has made an effort to put out new music in 2020 but hasn’t had the chart success they were expecting or that perhaps they deserved to have?

I would start this thread with Ella Henderson, she’s had two lead singles fail to reach the Top 40 this year; Take Care Of You and Dream On Me with Roger Sanchez, and an uncredited feature on a Nathan Dawe’s top 5 hit Lighter. Her only real success was with Jax Jones at the start of the year when she broke into the Top 10 with This Is Real which was released in 2019.

Who else would you like to give a shoutout to for their contributions to music in 2020?

Ella is so underrated these days especially on her lead artist tracks.

I wasn't a massive fan of it, but it would have been nice to see Fleur East's album at least make the top 100

Grace Carter. Not that she's released much this year (just the one single I think) but I really thought she'd have a big 2020.

Otherwise I'd go for Rina Sawayama, Kiesza (who continues to be one of the most under-rated singers ever) and The Lottery Winners.

Melanie C, her singles not even charting on the top 100 is so sad. Who I am is genuinely one of my favourite songs in years. sad.gif

I still can’t believe Sam Fender hasn’t had a decent sized hit yet!

Celeste is another name I will throw into the mix, she won the Brit Award for Rising Star of 2020, but she hasn’t had a Top 40 single yet. sad.gif

Strange is the song that should have smashed in my opinion.

I was going to suggest Celeste. I really hope she gets a hit with the song from the John Lewis ad, it's beautiful.

Zara Larsson.

I know I’m obviously biased but her performances and presence is insane, she’s just got horrendous labels.



Even if you’re not a fan of a song, the fact she slayed just a video in a square, if any main pop girl did this cheeseblock.png



She can’t even go top 100 now.

A lot of my fave artists of the year didn't and never will have major chart success but I guess I'll say Everything Everything for having a big step back from the chart relevance of even their last album despite putting out imo their best music to date ~

Also Hayley Williams, it sucks that not even one of her solo songs caught on (Paramore had a hit single from their last album so it wasn't impossible!) and the album was limited to one week of moderately ok sales.

Hayley's album is brilliant, agree

WOW is just so bad song. I think a melodic pop banger would do justice for her. Maybe she will participate Melodifestivalen?

Along with the mention of Ella Henderson already.. I would say James Bay. 'Chew On My Heart' is literally the best thing he's ever put out and unfortunately wasn't supported very well at all. It's a shame because not always are artists done forever just from a floppy 2nd era.
