Your thoughts on these upcoming artists who are gaining/have gained popularity a lot this year...
Marina and the Diamonds
Carly Rae Jepsen
Lana Del Rey
JESSIE J. NO-ONE ELSE
I just don't get why people want to make sense of the world. At the end of the day, we are all living on some random rock in the middle of a big black darkness which we know nothing about. It is pretty much a lost cause. Don't agonise over it...just enjoy life!

Rita Ora: I had only heard her main song and I like it! She's hot.
Jessie J: Eh her album was pretty bad. But she has a few songs that I love like Domino, LaserLight, Repeat, etc.
Marina and the Diamonds: I've loved her for nearly 2 years. She's amazing.
Azealia Banks: LOVE HER my current favorite up-and-coming (ie. no album or even EP). Don't usually like rap, but her rap/house is amazing.
Carly Rae Jepsen: Eh. Call Me Maybe is catchy but I don't care to look her up.
Lana Del Rey: She's great! Her album's pretty good. Excited for her future efforts.
Emeli Sande: Amazing. Her debut was great and her voice is incredible. I hope her next album has a few more upbeats though.
Kimbra: Only know STIUTK tbh.
Sia: Not new, but I really like her. Breathe Me is amazing.
Neon Hitch: Don't know any songs.
Rita Ora - I really love her.
Jessie J - Some great tunes, but a bit basic.
Marina and the Diamonds - My fave.
Azealia Banks - I like what I've heard.
Carly Rae Jepsen - She's not my type.
Lana Del Rey - Born To Die was a bit boring, but her mixtape will be wonderful.
Emeli Sande - I've never heard of her.
Kimbra - Cameo Lover, Settle Down, The Build Up >>>>>
Sia - Haven't properly listened.
Neon Hitch - I like F U Betta and I liked Ass Back Home, I hope she released a solo version of ABH.
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.

Rita Ora: Love.

Emeli Sande: Haven't listened to her music yet.
Kimbra: Love her voice.
Neon Hitch: Meh.
Rita Ora: She seems to have potential. "How We Do (Party)" is a good song, but forgettable. Looking for something that makes her stand out.
Jessie J: One of the strongest artists of the group. Although, she is still struggling to find her own sound.
Marina and the Diamonds: She's OK. "Primmadonna" is a good song, but again, forgettable.
Azealia Banks: LOVE her. She has so much to offer. Cannot wait for her album.
Carly Rae Jepsen: One hit wonder. Calling it right now.
Lana Del Rey: Amazing talent. One of the most talented of the bunch.
Emeli Sande: Another amazing talent.
Kimbra: She seems quirky, but her solo material doesn't jive with me.
Sia: Not new, but still amazing.
Neon Hitch: Have no idea who this is. Seem their name around ATRL, but nothing more than that.
And what about Sabi? She seems to be rising this year as well.
