Which had the BIGGEST IMPACT?
Rihanna | Taylor | DEMI | JT
Lana | Miley | Florence | Ke$ha | fun. | Coldplay | P!nk | Mariah
I Kissed A Girl. Just Dance was overshadowed by Poker Face, and I still don't believe (As much as the Monsters try it) that JD ushered in the dance era music we have now. IKAG still sounds fresh, and not outdated to this day imo.
Except IKAG had amazing longevity and was very controversial. I'd be on Katy with this one.
There's no denying the impact of I Kissed A Girl, it was making headlines right and left. Just Dance was just another generic dance track released in 08.
