Now is an exciting time to be a female singer in the pop music realm. The charts and the airplay are regularly dominated by Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Meghan Trainor and Lady Gaga, to name a few. But there is a new crop of pop leading ladies who are trailing the aforementioned talents and repping the new breed.
From the vocal divas of Fifth Harmony to Meg Mac to Meg Myers—how cute, the "Megs!"—there are plenty of women on the rise in the pop music world. These 15 acts are about to make pop music their bitch. Don't say we didn't warn you. Proceed to familiarize yourself with them now so you are already a fan and a member of the faithful as these ladies and their stars further ascend.
'90s girl groups En Vogue and Destiny's Child are in the rear view, sadly, but Little Mix, who were assembled on (and eventually won) the UK version of Simon Cowell's X Factor, bring that soulful, all-girl vocal ensemble element back to pop music! We're sure glad they did. Their unique, powerful voices blend as seamlessly and they fill the meteor-sized void left by the aforementioned bands splitting and splintering.
The English quartet is comprised of Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards and Jesy Nelson and the lovely ladies mixes pop soul with urban street style. Did we mention that the ladies harmonize flawlessly. If you've not yet indulged in "Move," "Salute," "Wings," "How Ya Doing," featuring Missy Elliott or "Little Me," then you are most certainly missing out. Who needs to grasp fading memories of The Spice Girls when Little Mix are in the here and now. The best thing about the Little Mix ladies is that they all have natural, organic voices that don't require all sorts of software to make 'em sound good.
The new ladies of pop are coming for you!
