Singers female pop

Not to be confused with the term “popular music,” pop music in and of itself is its own genre within popular music defined by the basic songwriting format of verse-chorus, with repeated hooks and a generally short length.

One of the Best Female Pop Singers Ariana Grande Performing Live

Often associated with other genres such as rock, dance, country and urban, pop music as we know it today rose from the youth-oriented music styles that were popularized in the United States and the United Kingdom during the 1950s and 1960s, such as rock and roll. With a wide variety of subgenres such as dance-pop, experimental pop, baroque pop, indie pop and pop punk, the pop genre has dominated the mainstream music charts and radios since its stylistic evolution in the 1980s.

These are some of the world’s greatest female pop singers that have defined the pop music sound throughout the past six decades.

Megan Lewis

Growing up in a small town in South Carolina with little to do, I spent the majority of my adolescence listening to music and writing stories. I began playing the violin in the 5th grade which helped me grow to appreciate modern music’s roots from an early age. At the age of 12 my older brother introduced me to the music he grew up with; Nu Metal, Grunge, 90’s Hip-Hop, Rap and Classic Rock. I became infatuated and embarked on my own music journey, discovering who I truly was along the way. During college I developed a passion for journalism, which I’ve now been lucky enough to merge with my love for music here at Guitar Lobby.
