  1. ATRL loves females. And what more would we love than two or more females working together, right? So today we celebrate the all-female collaborations that had us shookt and our weaves vaporized throughout the years. Below is a Youtube playlist of 84 all-female collaborations spanning from the year 2000 to 2009 from either solo acts or duos (no groups allowed) that are official singles and at least 40% relevant. Start the trip down memory lane with an intro featuring an album cut from Lady Gaga's Joanne that perfectly encompasses the message of this countdown. (Forgive the watermark because I'm broke and can't afford the premium version.) NOT ON YOUTUBE PLAYLIST There are a handful of videos there that are not available on all devices so here's a Spotify playlist instead of those songs.

  2. Welcome to ATRL's 150 Greatest Albums Of The Millennium! My name is ManDown, and together, we will be deciding on and counting down the top 150 albums released this millennium. After the hugely successful ATRL's 250 Greatest Songs Of All Time in February, which had an astonishing (almost record breaking) 191 participants and 10.7k posts, it was decided that albums needed their time to shine! All members from all fanbases are welcomed (and encouraged) to participate! Submit an unranked list of 25 to 50 (any number in between is fine) albums you consider to be the best of the millennium via PM to me. Each album will receive one point, regardless of position. All ballots (regardless of number of albums nominated) will be counted the same; you are just given the option to choose whether to submit a short ballot (for casual music fans) or an extended ballot (for hardcore music fans). Albums released between January 1st, 2001 and December 31st, 2016 will be accepted. Only albums and mixtapes may be submitted. No greatest hits or EPs (6 or less songs)! One album per artist. Group entries are counted separately from solo artists, so you may submit one for each (e.g. 1 for Beyoncé and 1 for Destiny's Child). Keep in mind this is for the millennium, not just 2012-2016. While there are no rules regarding how many releases per year you can include, try to be diverse. Rallying for your favorite album(s) is fine (especially in your base thread). Sharing a sizeable list with the intention of having others submit it is not. May 24th at 12:00AM CST
  3. Hi again! Welcome to the second part of This Generation Pop Girls: The Singles Rate. After the first part, where we rated #1’s and Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream won, it’s now time to rate top 10 hits. All our 9 girls have at least one of them, so this time the competition is even bigger. Which songs will make it to the top 10 and will be rated again in the final act? And which song will win this round? -Rate every track from 1-10 and send me a private message with your scores. -Decimals are NOT allowed. (yeah, you have to take some decisions here; If you do I will round numbers. Since we’re rating 60 songs, some of them will probably get the same score. Your 11’s, 0’s, 10’s and 1’s will be crucial to decide the songs positions in this case, so use them wisely!) -You can give a 11 to the best song of the rate in your opinion. -You can give a 0 to the worst song of the rate in your opinion. -Be clever! Don’t be afraid of using 10’s/1’s for your favourite/least favourite songs! (I also suggest you to not use more than ten 10’s and 1’s, to increment your ballot effect.) -NO trolling / delusional ballots (example: all 10’s to Katy songs, all 1’s to Taylor songs) -Use the PM-Friendly list. -No comments allowed. You will comment about the song when during the results reveal, it will be even better! -For your information: collabs and soundtracks singles are not included in the rate; just official album/EP singles. -Have fun!

  5. I am your host MP2K and I welcome you all to THE NEW WAVE OF R&B PART 2. Traditional R&B may not be as prominent on the charts as it use to be, but the R&B genre is forever evolving and there’s always discussion about — where it’s at, where it’s going, who is doing it right, who is doing it weird, and who is even doing it at all. People call it alternative R&B, also referred to as PBR&B, a term meant to be a joke but used by music journalists to describe a stylistic alternative to contemporary R&B. Whichever the label, many artists categorized into this sub-genre find the labels very offense. Well, guess what? They’re gonna have to deal with it as we’re here to rate them. It all began in 2011 when a new wave of R&B artists emerged with uber left-field music and garnered supporters looking for new R&B music to get into that was different from the same ole. Now in 2017 this “alternative R&B” seems to be the norm; a phenomenon in music. The Weeknd and Frank Ocean are on top in the music industry in their own respective ways, influencing some of the more mainstream artists such as Usher, Drake, Rihanna and Beyoncé to dabble into such a sound. Three years ago we rated sixteen 2nd tier artists of this "new wave" (popular acts The Weeknd, Frank Ocean and Miguel were excluded). Each of those artists were some of the most relevant and fresh faces at the time, most have went on to continue to release music ‘til this day, and some went on to scoring top 40 hits (ie. Tinashe). R&B is brimming with fresh ideas and experiments gone right and it shows no signs of withering away thanks to these new emerging artists we’re about to rate for the second installment. Here is another batch of artists that are continuing to make the 2010’s pass in history as the decade R&B became “great again.” Disagree? Then I'm awaiting these lashings: Rules 1. Rate ALL 75 songs from 1 to 10. 2. You are allowed to give one 11 and one 10.5. 3. I encourage decimal places, just don't go crazy. 4. Do not troll by giving a specific artist all 1's or 10's. 5. Be fair, take your time and listen to the songs with an open mind. 6. You may send in parts, but you must have a rating for every song by the deadline. Deadline: April 30th (as of now)
  6. The Aretha Franklin Singles Rate The Queen of Soul. 75 million records. 18 Grammys. Rolling Stone's #1 Greatest Singer of All Time and #9 Greatest Artist of All Time. The first female performer to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Aretha Franklin is a legend to end all legends, but she's so much more than her numbers. Aretha didn't just grow up a child prodigy. Being the daughter of C.L. Franklin, the most esteemed preacher of his time, placed Aretha in the very center of African American culture, a place where the political, social, and musical worlds were inextricably intertwined. She was taught piano by The Reverend James Cleveland, given singing lessons by Dinah Washington, and raised by Gospel greats such as Mahalia Jackson and Clara Ward when her father wasn't around. Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole, and Ella Fitzgerald occasionally visited. When Dr. King would come to Detroit, he would stay with the Franklins, and C.L. Franklin would help organize protests such as the Detroit Walk To Freedom. Many would compare Aretha's singing style to that of her father's preaching - full of passion and fire, carefully paced, rising and fluctuating in levels until reaching a climax, then finally taken home. Just listen to "Respect." So Aretha's very roots and foundation are the culmination of a time, place, and movement that transcends us all. She was neither the first nor the last to crossover from church to Pop, but no one else brought Gospel into the secular world the way Aretha did. It's not just her range or power but her tremendous musicality, her thrilling blend of R&B, Jazz, and Pop, and her boundless emotion that makes her the queen of soul. Her ability to put more raw feeling into a line than you could readily comprehend. What Aretha would improvise in one phrase, other vocalists would take entire songs to express. Nowadays we love writing think pieces on the meticulously crafted works of stars and their ideas on the issues of race, womanhood, and sexuality (and all well deserved if I may add). But Aretha's singing, her very existence and place within the musical world, is a triumph warranting a think piece in itself. Every bit of her identity, from the church upbringing to the widely documented tragedies of her tumultuous life, fuel the passion behind the voice. She's the woman who gave us everything from Mariah's Vision of Love to the melodic backing of Kanye's School Spirit, the reason we have Kpop stars like Ailee covering I Will Always Love You on major TV networks (but don't bother checking that one out lol!). There are about a thousand metaphors that try to encapsulate the immensity of the queen. Here's what our president Barack Obama had to say about Aretha: Indeed, there is so much to be said about the entity that is Aretha Franklin, all that she stands for and all that she has accomplished. But I'm not tryna make everyone read her entire Wikipedia article, so it's best to experience her for yourself PM Friendly List Rules – Assign each song a score from 0 to 10 using the list above – Decimals are allowed up to the hundredths place (two decimals) – You are allowed one score of 11 and one score of 10.5 to give to your favorite songs – Submit your scores to me in a PM by (TBA), deadline subject to change since I'm not expecting too many voters – Comments are always welcome alongside your scores – Have fun!

  7. Welcome to the first official Mariah rate on the new ATRL. Ace Reject said I could open this on the weekend and it's officially the weekend in the Christmas Islands (Kiritimati to be exact). On Dec 18, 1995, Mariah Angela Nuñez Carey revolutionised the pop game when she released the historically iconic Fantasy remix with the late and great hip-hop pioneer ODB. Before Mariah Carey, no one was really attempting to take their hit songs and completely transform it for the clubs/radio/different demographics the way that Mariah did with Fantasy and that is why she is indubitably the Queen of the Remix. As Mariah prepares to…well we don’t know what she’s doing but as Mariah is living her life, ATRLers are cordially invited to relive, for the nostalgia, the grandeur of MC's 27-year career with this Remixes Rate, brought to you by this year’s Lambily Awards “Make It Look Good” award recipient, Buyonce1814, aka me, and the “Anytime You Need a Friend” award recipient, Ventitonic. After a lot of deliberating and back and forth, we have made a final list. There was one rule that we set ourselves; remixes that sound too much like the album version were to not be included. However, for the rate to be approved, Ace Reject insisted we include the Mobb Deep remix of The Roof. We believe we selected the best remixes and we have tried to account for everyone’s tastes and likes. Please join us as we celebrate Mariah Carey’s career and the main pop girl that influenced and changed the remix game. • All songs must be scored between 0-10 • …however, you can score ONE song with an 11, 10.75, 10.5 and 10.25 • You can score songs using TWO decimal points: 5.61, 3.25, 9.97, etc. In fact, this would be preferred in order to avoid ties. • For your ballot to count, you must rate every song • Being an Allison aka a troll will not be tolerated; so, if you give Charmy remixes all 0’s, then ByeBye.mp3 • Please remember to vote Ventitonic for the Meteorite award at next year’s Lambily awards for such dazzlingly astounding graphics • Please remember to vote this thread as best thread at next year’s Lambily awards We appreciate that some of these remixes are long as **** and therefore you’d need time to listen and appreciate them in all their glory. Therefore, you have a month from now to submit your ballots. All songs must be PM’d to me (Buyonce1814) by 22nd May. You may tune in from the 23rd May to see where your fave remixes end up.

  9. Ciara - Jackie v Tori Kelly - Unbreakable Smile v Leona Lewis - I Am v Kelly Clarkson - Piece By Piece Welcome to the sequel of "Flops of 2014" rate! For my first rate, I think it did pretty well and had a nice turn out. It also helped that Lea Michele won it, so I thought I'd do another rate with a couple of albums that flopped in 2015. Now, I already know we are going to have people complaining that Piece by Piece wasn't a "flop" and it's unfair that it's included in this. We do NOT need another Shakira situation on our hands. The era in general was a flop and the album was a flop for her standards and expectations, also @Ace Reject said it was fine, so don't blame me! Anyway, I hope you guys participate and help this also be a success!

  16. George Michael. The Father Figure of Pop. A boyband breakout heartthrob turned serious and respected superstar turned reclusive pop artist. George Michael debuted in 1983 as the better half of Wham!, whose debut album Fantastic reached #1 in the UK. George wrote half of the album himself, including credits on each of its singles. Wham! returned a year later with their sophomore album Make It Big, which produced three Hot 100 topping smash hits. Once again, the majority of the record was written and composed solely by George, who was also the sole producer on the record. Wham!'s final album, either Music From The Edge of Heaven or The Final depending on where you live, yielded five more top 2 hits in the UK and three more top 10 hits in the States (including "A Different Corner," for which George was credited as a solo act). Most notably, the album features the Christmas staple "Last Christmas," which was again written, composed, and produced solely by George. Prior to the release of his debut solo album, George teamed up with Aretha Franklin—his favorite vocalist—on the duet "I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)." The song won George his first Grammy, while it was also the last of Aretha's 17 top 10 hits (as well as being her second Hot 100 #1, and only UK #1). His debut solo album Faith is one of the best selling albums of all time, with more than ten weeks atop the Billboard 200, four hits that topped Hot 100, and a diamond certification. He wrote and composed every song bar one singlehandedly. Seeking to be more respected as an artist, the follow up album Listen Without Prejudice struck a more sombre tone as George, a major sex symbol at the time, famously refused to appear in the promotional videos associated with the album. The album underperformed, despite producing another #1 hit as well as another classic anthem. A poppier sequel to Listen Without Prejudice was scrapped and George left his label. In between records, George and Sir Elton John performed Elton's hit "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me" together in concert, releasing a recording to radio. The song became the tenth and final US #1 of George's career. His third solo album, Older, came after several years of legal battles. It was a major success in Europe, where it still holds the record for most top 3 singles from a single album in his home country. In the States, the album produced two top 10 hits, which became his final entries on the Hot 100 during his lifetime. He next released his first greatest hits compilation, which included a cover of Stevie Wonder's "As" featuring Mary J Blige. The album also included, "Outside" his official coming out song written about an incident where he was very publicly arrested by an undercover police officer for lewd behavior in a restroom. He then released Songs From The Last Century, a flop album featuring covers of various standards and a few more contemporary songs. His final studio album, Patience, came several years later and is most notable for its controversial anti-war single "Shoot the Dog." The only known queer man to win the Grammy Award for Album of the Year as a lead artist, who's got more Hot 100 #1 hits than any other queer man in history. Do you have faith in the sound? Rules 1. Rate every song from 1 to 10. Feel free to use decimals. 2. You may give one song an 11. 3. PM your completed ratings to me. Deadline TBA. A Spotify playlist for your convenience. Note that a couple of songs aren't available on spotify. I'll try to track down youtube links for those. PM FRIENDLY LIST OF SONGS

So let's take some time and appreciate the woman who conquered the dancefloor, lived the American dream, saw the right of light, but still has a rebel heart that shines so bright.

It's not that easy to handle a 30+ years career so let's start with her fresher material. Deadline is still not decided. Send me your rates via pm.

You MUST give an 11 to your fave song and you can also give a 0 to a song that you absolutely hate or think it's not worthy its existence. Don't be biased and most of all enjoy this journey. Songs 1.

  24. Where would we be without the Spice Girls? Perhaps still obsessing over the umpteenth descendants of Alanis Morissette and Puff Daddy. By the mid-'90s, pop music had been entirely eclipsed as an industry force, replaced on the charts by new jack swing, grunge and a parade of big-voiced divas wailing power ballads. A dramatic change, however, was waiting in the wings. Enter: five British babes brought together by an advertisement in a trade magazine—the first seismic jolt in a pop renaissance. After conquering their native UK the prior year, Ginger, Baby, Scary, Sporty and Posh crossed the pond in early 1997. Powered by a catchy message of friendship and female empowerment, they became instant sensations in America, too. Unforgettable classics, iconic fashions and even a movie followed—as did a wave of boy bands and bubblegum starlets that fueled the "TRL" era this forum still adores. By the time Geri Halliwell quit some 16 months later to go solo, effectively ending the Spice moment, their debut had become the bestselling album of all time by a girl group. So in celebration of Spice—which was released twenty years ago this month in the US—we are undertaking a definitive ranking of its track list. To participate, please complete this quick song sorter and PM me your results by this Saturday, Feb. 25. Those lists will be completed to determine a universal ranking, which will be unveiled in a countdown event. (Check out the previous rankings of Emotion and Loose to see how it works.) Feel free to use this thread to advocate for your track of choice or to share your memories from the past two decades of Spice. Ten lucky guest writers will also be chosen to explain why their favorite song is the true highlight of the album, so let me know if you are interested. The Definitive Spice Ranking 1. "2 Become 1" 2. "Say You'll Be There" 3. "Wannabe" 4. "Who Do You Think You Are" 5. "Naked" 6. "Mama" 7. "Last Time Lover" 8. "If U Can't Dance" 9. "Something Kinda Funny" 10. "Love Thing"
