- I only really know "Mercy" and "Warwick Avenue" from her. I like both, but prefer the latter these days.Justin Timberlake
- his relationship/connection with/to two of my favourite female artists predisposes me to not like him much as a human-being, but, as a musician, his 2002-2013 output was limited, but solid. I think he's one of the best male pop stars ever, but that's only because he doesn't have much competition in that arena. I think "Sexyback" is a good candidate for favourite JT song (and video) for me as well. "LoveStoned/I Think She Knows" is right up there as well.Black Eyed Peas
- I think their music is best when the guys sit down and let Fergie shine on a mid-tempo ballad à la "Meet Me Halfway" and "Just Can't Get Enough".The Weeknd
- he feels very much like a more commercial version of Frank Ocean. His hit-to-miss ratio is impressive thus far.John Mayer
- good guitar music from him. I agree that the white supremacist remark was distasteful, and definitely impacted his spin count in my music library.Kanye West
- he's probably the best hip/hop act ever, but I've really not been pro-Kanye this year for obvious reasons. I like that "Diamonds from Sierra Leone" is your #1 from him, as I think it's one of his most underrated tracks. I'm not entirely sure what my favourite Kanye song is. "Monster", "Heartless", "Stronger", and "Never Let Me Down" would all be in the conversation, but "Power" is a giant among giants, so it's probably that one.Noisettes
- "I Want You Back" is great!Drake
- sexiest rapper of all-time perhaps? I think Drake has a great ear for melodies and hooks, and he's probably the most quotable rapper ever, but I definitely think a lot of his big hits are mediocre. Unlike the Weeknd, his hit-to-miss ratio for me is barely above 50%.
I will agree that she can write, though sometimes she sticks really oddball words in there like its some sort of vocabulary lesson
I can admit to this being true.
