The first single released by that act, not counting if the artist was part of a group. So David Gilmour and Pink Floyd could both chart, for example.tdc2000 wrote:How are you going to define "debut"? Will an artist from a band or group going solo count?
I always make that mistake with Kanye. As for Bey, well, "Crazy In Love" is the one that most people remember anyway.Wardo wrote:I know this term (debut) is controversial and misused (Akini mentioned Gold Digger and Crazy In Love, which are NOT debut singles by their artists ), but I hope I don't mess it up completely!
49. The Jackson Five - I Want You BackMusically, Mel was always my favourite Spice, which means that when the group ended I was looking forward to her new material. This debut proved she really needed a complete change from the Sporty Spice sound, so she goes really rock 'n' roll (the 'I have become a super b!tch' illustrates it) but what could've turned into a messy Avril Lavigne sound actually became an interesting song. I really like when she sings 'I'm singing it loud and I don't care / I'm singing it proud everywhere'
48. Deee-Lite featuring Q-Tip - Groove Is In The HeartTypical Jackson 5 track, but what a debut single! Lil' Michael was on fire - who imagined this person would conquer the world a decade later! I Want You Back has that Motown live instruments appeal that gives so much life to a song. I feel the turn of the 60's to 70's must have been pretty exciting musically.
Special MentionsCrazy, cheesy, unique, and a DEBUT single! What a way to begin the 90's lol It gives me an 'I don't give a damn' feeling, let's just shut up and dance! The random and psychedelic video is amazing.
She isn't what JT is of N'Sync, but she managed to have a decent career, at least in Germany.tdc2000 wrote:Though Mel C is probably the most talented of the Spice Girls, her solo work, like the rest of the group, has been mostly underwhelming.
46. Bob Marley - Judge NotYou could notice from the start that Missy was not one more rapper. Her flow is unique and though this doesn't go hard like her best hits, it's still a pleasant midtempo.
45. James Brown and The Famous Flames - Please Please PleaseThe birth of a legend! I've always been a lyrics fan, and Bob really knows how to deliver a good song lyrically. This melody isn't brilliant but I always liked its words about morality and respect.
Special MentionsThis is so funky and happy, I can't believe some people like Brown were inventing those things in the 50's. This one still plays in my parties today!
