5 Notable Pop Stars To Look Out For

There are many quality pop stars out there. Some of them are looking for their big breaks and some of them have already made it big and are only getting bigger. Today we are putting together a short list of pop stars that have some notable talent in today’s world of pop music.

MAX

MAX

MAX broke out last year with the hit “Lights Down Low” from that song along, MAX got himself into the Hot 100 list. Not only that but this was the same song he sang to his wife as a marriage proposal. From listening to the song, it’s clear as to why she said yes to him. The song was successful in an unusual combination dancing between the line of confessional acoustic as well as pop soundscapes. That combination paired with expressive vocals, deep love, and of-the-moment seduction, this song was a beautiful combination that not many can pull off.

Maggie Rogers

Even though the Pharrell co-sign certainly helped in boosting Maggie Rogers’ career, what got her there was her effortless and impeccable songcraft. Paired with her detailed production work, she has some strong skills that shouldn’t be overlooked. To see those skills in action all you have to do is look at some of her songs. The electronic bops in “Alaska” and the hypnotic, smaple-heavy tracks of “On + Off” are prime examples.

Dagny

Dagny

Norway’s most notable exports today is in the form of pop music, and Dagny is certainly one that can help boost those exports. Out of the pop singers in Norway, the 27 year old is the most promising singer in the area. You can tell that she has quite the skills when you hear one of her latest songs “Love You Like That”. The song is nothing but a heart-pumping anthem that only shows off her skills.

Sigrid

Sigrid

We weren’t lying when Norway has exports some great talent. Another Norway-born Sigrid is budding talent compared to Dagny. We’ve only seen a little glimpse at what she can do but her music is already good and showcases some of her talents.

Take “Strangers” which is a low-key banger filled with moody and pulsating synth-pop vibes. What’s notable about the song though is Sigrid’s ability to go from a restrained coo to a full blown rapid-fire sing-speak without missing a beat or sounding off at all.

Kim Petras

A 25-year old German pop singer shows a lot of promise as a budding master of some laid-back, and summery tunes. It almost sounds like these tunes could come from Katy Perry’s cool European cousin or something.

Anyway you can really get those vibes by checking out her song “Faded”. It’s one of 2017’s best songs around from pop stars who are under-the-radar at the moment.

Even though her association with Dr. Luke (supposedly) poses a bit of an issue, it’s still quite hard not to root for this confident, transgender singer who is having a time of her life when she gets behind a mic.
