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?

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” [citation needed].

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.

Not sure if I am participating with this, cause I know two songs and I do not love them that much. But I will try to dive in. I fear my status of rate villain will come back in this rate.

I do know one song from Alessia Cara 'The Other Side' and love it. So I might love more from her! A bit sad it isnot part of this (just like that Zara Larsson soccer anthem), but I am not sure how many extra songs you would have if you go for era's instead of album tracklists.

Zara's soccer anthem was included at one point. When I wasn't sure if half of them would have their albums out by the time it was my turn and I was thinking of doing singles instead. But once I decided on doing albums I had to cut some songs unfortunately otherwise it'd be too much.

Would still love your votes though! I'm sure there is something in here that you'd like. If not every rate needs a good villain!
 
Well this rate is the perfect place to find out if I am still in touch with this days pop roots. Let me listen to the albums while driving this week and if there are several things I like I will participate!
 
Too Much being one of the Kehlani tracks to not get cut (which her and Dua's albums are the same length anyway so I don't quite get it) is...interesting. I suppose something has to get cut first.
People suggested I cut down Kehlani's album since it's quite long and she's not as known on here. I basically cut the songs I thought would have the least chances of doing well. Dua's quite popular on the forum so I didn't think people would mind the length of hers. It's basically all killer no filler anyway.
 
Just had my first play of the Alessia Cara album whike driving and the album is quite nice. Nothing mindblowing, but also quite easy listenable on fresh ears.

Two songs made me look up when I was driving. Overdose, which I could have known cause pop songs with that title are always ace. The other one instantly snatched me: Scars To Your Beautiful. Immediately captivating me and an easy 10 to hand out. Another song as strong as this and I am in.
