Mainstream binge

Reference list for my ventures into mainstream popular music. Probably will only do whole discog for a few select of these since these albums are commonly pretty weak and built around a handful hit tracks surrounded by a bunch of fillers. This is missing a tonne of stuff and WIP. Recs welcome always
1Ariana Grande
Dangerous Woman


Done
Dangerous Woman is a solid album although I wish it stopped at track 7. Her other albums have jams sprinkled all over but are far less consistent.
Thank U, Next 2.2
Sweetener 2.3
Dangerous Woman 3.6
My Everything 2.1
Yours Truly 1.9
2Dua Lipa
Dua Lipa


Done, although I discovered now that the Complete version of her lp has some good additional tracks on it so gotta check that out
She has super jams and has many ok songs, but like Ariana she is yet to make a consistently good record
Dua Lipa 2.9
The Only EP 2.0
3Shakira
Shakira.


Done.
Her discog is quite respectable. She ventured into a lot of genres and stayed relevant over many, many years. She's however missing a magnum opus to make her discog shine - bar a handful unique and creative tracks, most of her records are simply ok and didn't mark me much.

III


Done
She is quite consistent and all her records have at least a couple jams. Unlike a lot of people I think Goddess is her weakest, she is exploring and maturing still, and I appreciate her desire to create a unique style - especially with III.

Loud


Done
Most of her discog is made of poorly constructed albums, with occasional jams sprinkled over a lot of annoying and boring material. Fewer jams than I expected too, I was hoping for better. Her last album is very strong however (before track 9) and comes as a bit of a surprise - hopefully it hints at her future direction?

Expect to hate this, and the godawful art does not help
Done.
Welp it was bad, but not unbearable and not as awful as I was expecting. But yeah I don't really enjoy her vocals so it couldn't go very far anyways.
Invasion of Privacy 1.8

Dedicated


Done.
I'll have to rejam Emotions per dedex's rec, but yeah none of her albums really resonated with me. Everything before Dedicated has lots of annoying moments that counterbalance the bops, and the last one is more consistent but often falls flat and fails at being catchy - the end is cool though. Have to rejam Dedicated and Emotions to see which one I like best.

Random find that was pretty boring which is why I only jammed the two albums that were already in the database. Apart from a couple tracks not much I'll remember.
