Albums from the 2010s Who Killed Their Artist's Career

This is a list to discuss about various albums from the 2010s who arguably ended the careers of the artists who made them

The Top Ten

Witness - Katy Perry Witness - Katy Perry Product Image

I have no idea why Katy Perry would make that album.

I dunno, it's pretty good but not the best

Obviously

It’s crazy how she’s had so many number 1s before this album, but now she’s nowhere as big as she was a couple of years ago. The music she’s released last year and this year are good, but they didn’t get the same attention as Dark Horse and Roar.

After the huge success of Blurred Lines he hasn’t had much luck afterwards with the lawsuit and during this period he was going through a lot as well it just all came crashing down.

I completely agree her career was not the same after that freestyle I remember the huge amount of dislikes the video had and people all over Twitter were dragging her and making complete fun of her. Not long after that people starting digging up old tweets that she made full of discrimination and stereotypes and they also found a song of hers before she became famous that was really controversial due to the racist lyrics and she just lost all respect and credit as a rapper.

I feel like her long absence was probably more important. 5 years is a long time to wait for a second album especially for an artist that originally got big from collaborations.

I also wonder if those racist and homophobic tweets she made, as long with that awful freestyle had something to do with her career flopping. Because from that point on, most of the songs she’s released have failed to crack the Top 5.

That's possible but I reckon she was never really that big herself she just had huge collaborations I certainly don't think this album ruined her career given that it debuted at only number 50 which seemed to show no one was really eagerly anticipating it in the first place.

The Beginning - Black Eyed Peas The Beginning - Black Eyed Peas Product Image

Not sure how much it was this album or how important their long hiatus was but it is kind of significant that they were a group that I would have thought were pretty much too big to fail but then sunk into obscurity.

The Big Day - Chance the Rapper

Revival - Eminem Revival - Eminem Product Image

Must I remind you of 'Lose Yourself'? That started a key point of his career

The Contenders

Harverd Dropout - Lil Pump Harverd Dropout - Lil Pump Product Image

At least his self-tilted album had catchy songs and beats. Lil pump has really catchy beats but wastes it.

Nuthin' 2 Prove - Lil Yachty Nuthin' 2 Prove - Lil Yachty Product Image

One More Light - Linkin Park One More Light - Linkin Park Product Image

This one hurts to put it here, specially by the aftermath... but we all know it ended Linkin Park careers

Red Pill Blues - Maroon 5 Red Pill Blues - Maroon 5 Product Image

Disagree here if anything I was surprised that this album was as successful as it was.

Wake Up Call - Theory of a Deadman Wake Up Call - Theory of a Deadman Product Image

They never had a career to begin with lol.

Reputation - Taylor Swift Reputation - Taylor Swift Product Image

I don't think this technicaly killed her career, I think it just ended a certain aspect of her music, such as how it wasn't all about boys for once.

'I'm sorry the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now. Why? Oh... because she's dead.'
