Modern Male Popstars

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by slaybellz, Jan 9, 2018.

  1. I'm in the market for good modern Pop Boys. Would love to discover some new names if people have suggestions!

    I only have 6 rules:
    1. No male singers with guitars
    2. No rappers
    3. No ballad singers
    4. No bands / lead singers from bands (unless they've gone solo)
    5. No DJs / Producers
    6. No legacy acts (I already know the MJs and the George Michaels this is a thread for modern acts)

    I'll start the list with names I already know:

    Bruno Mars
    Justin Timberlake
    The Weeknd
    Usher
    Ne-Yo
    Justin Bieber
    Austin Mahone
    Nick Jonas
    The 1D Boys
    Troye Sivan
    MNEK
    Miguel
    Olly Murs
    Craig David
    Khalid
    Frank Ocean
    Dev Hynes
    Kwabs
    Elijah Blake
    Travis Garland
    Jason Derulo
    Charlie Puth
    Robin Thicke
    Jesse McCartney


    As you can see a lot of this list is tragic which is why I would love to see what else is out there.

  3. The Swedish pop singer, Bosson is my favorite artist as far as male pop singers go.
    His voice is quite fitting for Europop and he is pretty much the best voice I've ever heard in pop music for a male voice.

  5. Daniel Caesar and Sampha are amazing. They're not really "pop boys" but they fit your six rules!

    edit:
