It’s definitely an exciting time for music lovers this year, especially for fans of their beloved female performers. Not in a long while have so many high profile ladies released their musical offerings in tandem, causing both competition and scrutiny to be immense. It almost harkens back to a time when icons such as Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, and Madonna all competed for that top spot.
While the past year has been an active period for female stars such as Ke$ha, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez and Katy Perry, the eyes of many glared longingly towards 2011. A year which would see Pop’s heavy-hitters Britney Spears, Lady GaGa, and Beyoncé vie -in tandem- for the pole position. It goes without saying that ‘singers’ in the vein of the Rihanna’s and co seem to pop up every year on the Pop music spectrum; yet, no three ladies have amounted the success or of a following as these ladies.
With the release of Britney’s ‘Femme Fatale’ this March, along with the impending releases of GaGa’s ‘Born This Way’ and Beyoncé’s new album, it definitely leaves the question: Thusfar, who has brought it?!
