Female musicians dominated the world of music in 2014. Many of the top headlines and stories revolved around female musicians (and Justin Bieber), so for those interested, this is a list of the most popular female singers of 2014. These different singers made themselves popular throughout the year for a variety of reasons. However, regardless of how they got into the position that they did, they still made it into the top spots of the most popular female singers of the year.
Shakira is one popular female singer that has found a way to combine rock and roll with belly dancing. While she hasn’t published an album in some time now, she has one coming out this year, which will actually be her 10th release. It hit stores in January and she looks to take her spot at the 10th most popular female singers of the year.
9. Cheryl Cole
Raised in England, she might not have as much press yet as the others on this list, but that will soon change. She has been on the official BBC top 40 singles list before and now she is going to be making her way over to the United States. Chances are, she is going to make a rather larger splash, so music fans will probably see the name Cheryl Cole all over the place in the coming months.
8. Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez has always been a figurehead in the world of female music, and the year of 2014 is not going to be any different. Right now, she is appearing in the television program American Idol, and while it is not yet determined if she will come back for another year, she continues to sing, act and dance her way into the top 10 list of the most popular female singers of 2014.
7. Katy Perry
Katy Perry had an incredible 2013, so while she is likely to step back a bit this year, it is still going to carry over from the previous. She is touring her latest album release and she is going to continue to record singles, although this is not yet determined as to when or where she might decide to release songs. And who knows, she might appear in a few other John Mayer songs as well, which she also managed to do last year. It is difficult to see how she tops last year, but it still is possible, and there is plenty of time for her to jump up these charts as well.
6. Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj has been around for some time now and while currently she is being suede for several million dollars, she is still going to remain one of the most popular female singers. She has previously served as a judge on American Idol, although now Jennifer Lopez takes up this spot. With her lack of music releases over the past few years, she is likely to come out with new material this year. Plus, if she loses out on that lawsuit, she is going to need a bit of cash coming in, which is going to force her to make even more music in this coming year.
The wife of Jay-Z has been extremely busy in the last few years. While it is not yet known if she will release another album this year, work with her husband or stay at home with her young daughter, there is no question that she will remain busy and look to continue flaunting her talents to the world. Of course, this is a list of the most popular female singers of 2014, which is a bit hard to determine just two months in. So, it is possible this list changes at the conclusion of the year.
4. Lady Gaga
There can’t be a list of most popular female singers without including Lady Gaga. While her most recent album did not sell as well as her other offerings, she is always going to capture headlines with the way she dresses, although it isn’t going to have the same shock value as it once had, as the world is now use to her antics and ways of entertaining. Lady Gaga is one of the hardest workers in all of show business, not just in the music industry, so she is likely to continue working every single day in 2014. Whether this is just touring throughout the year or releasing another album in the later half, it is impossible to predict what Lady Gaga might do.
3. Taylor Swift
Hopefully she doesn’t break up with her more recent boyfriend, because there are just so many anti-you break up songs possible. Regardless though, she continues to top the charts whenever she releases a new song and she is a critical darling, as award shows completely love her innocent look, although it is becoming a bit tiring to some. What she does next is anyone’s guess, but she is likely to remain high on this list.
Adele is another female singer who basically became popular from singing about old boyfriends, although her soulful voice is completely different from Taylor Swift, and Adele is able to boast that she sang the theme song to a James Bond film (Skyfall), which puts her in a very selective company. She did not have a true album release last year, and in the world of music it just isn’t safe to go a long period of time between releases, so she likely will come out with a new album this year.
