Playlist: Women in Pop 2017 - It's what this year was all about.
Popular music this year was filled with the sound of women humming through the airwaves. It's undoubtedly the year of women, and certainly the year of women in pop. This list was tricky as more and more collaborations are coming to the fore, and artists may not have released music that fits in the pop genre - they've been included as they have changed the game in terms of what is considered popular. Cardi B is definitely a game-changing artist, and Feist exemplifies her staying and creative power while solidifying her cult following with the release of Pleasure. We added Shania for kicks. She's the pop/country crossover star of the last couple of decades and it seemed remiss to include Bebe Rexha and Florida State Line but leave out Shania. It was hard not to include Taylor Swift's entire album - we didn't. But in time, be sure the ones that were left out will find their way onto this list. Aussie darlings include Vera Blue, KLP, Woodes and Jessica Mauboy. Write in if you're outraged by any particular oversight.
For now, shuffle this baby.
