Most Influential Music Artist of 2013: This year was all about Justin Timberlake, hands down. He scored the biggest sales week of 2013, selling nearly 1 million copies. He also landed a second No. 1 album and could be seen or heard just about anywhere throughout the year. Having the top seller of the year and not following the EDM trend was a statement that true star power can lead the business creatively into the future. Too many times we've seen stars come back with cookie-cutter records that didn't challenge the fans or industry to be open to something new. He made a proper double album and brought R&B back to the mainstream. So to all of the other stars making comeback LPs in 2014, they should feel liberated to make their best artistic expression. Justin Timberlake is a complete artist. He is a triple-threat in an age where that is almost an extinct breed. We all witnessed his profound and diverse impact. 2013 showed everyone what a creative genius he's been all along. —Billboard
I had a friend in college who I wasn't so close with but he had a lot of friends, they went to a few gaga concerts together and stuff. When lotus came out he told them he liked it and bought it and they beat him up and stopped talking to him.
before you quote me think, is your comment about marina too harsh? and realize that i will report you if you shade her
Let’s pretend Bee’s career was like banking. Everything we’ve watched Bee do over the years has been like a deposit into a bank account. When she has moments where things don’t pan out exactly the way she wants or a certain single doesn’t meet certain expectations, she’s good. All the deposits over the years ensured that if “the check was short this week”, she was still comfortable. Basing a career on singles and chasing cookie cutter radio formulas is like living check to check. You ain’t worth **** but what’s going on right now. There’s nothing memorable. There’s nothing iconic. 18 years of healthy deposits. And now she’s sitting back CHILLING.
