We are gathered here today to celebrate her music and give her that due praise. From indie darling to full fledged popstar. From Under The Table to The Altar. From Goddess to Godless. Her name is...

    Between her two EPs, three studio albums, and various collaborations, I have compiled a song list of 56 tracks for this rate. So without further ado, here are the songs we will be rating.

    Never guilty

    An emotionally abusive daddy
    And cause of this you don't know how to act
