Welcome to the Pop Girls: Freshman Class Rate, featuring lots of bops, a load of "rent-a-rappers" and a few EDM DJs. Whoever wins this rate is 100% guaranteed to become the next big "Pop Girl" so rate wisely. The fate of their careers is in your hands! Before we get started how bout a quick history lesson? Remember this? Britney and friends! Or this? [Gaga not pictured.] In 1999, four young women burst into the pop music scene with their matching blonde locks, their crop tops and catchy hooks. At first glance, it was easy to dismiss these girls as carbon copies of each other but each individual brought a little something different and special to the pop world. Thus became the start of the “Pop Girls” . Since then, every half decade has offered its own lineup of "Pop Girls". With each iteration including a slightly older and slightly stronger Beyoncé. Now it’s no secret that in recent years the "Pop Girl" machine has not been churning out new and outstanding "Pop Girls" as routinely as desired. This is why we are gathered here today. To pick the best out of todays offerings and put them to the test. YOUR STAR PUPILS This international rate consists of four main freshmen and a few extras. Why these 4 ladies you ask? Well first off, all of them were able to get an album out so... But let's dive into their credentials anyway! We’ve got Kosovan-Brit, Dua Lipa, after two 6 month push backs, two album covers, and two album-less tours she still managed to snatch a Top 5 album debut in the UK. Everyone's fav feminist Swede, Zara Larsson, has achieved many things but her most impressive achievement thus far is definitely releasing 6 different videos for one multi-platinum hit song. American, Kehlani, who reps the Bay Area was only 20 years old when she was Grammy nominated for a mixtape, not everybody has that. My fellow Canadian, Alessia Cara, has won two Juno Awards, which to non Canadians might not mean anything, but to Canadians....it also doesn't really mean anything.
