Top 10 Music Artists that are Called "Talented" that are Talentless

OK so for some reason I was locked out of my account for god knows how long now. But fortunately, I have returned with a new list. This list is a list of music artists that some or most people call talented, that are actually, in fact, talentless.

The Top Ten

1 Rihanna Robyn Rihanna Fenty is a Barbadian-American pop singer. Born in Saint Michael and raised in Bridgetown, she first entered the music industry by recording demo tapes under the direction of record producer Evan Rogers in 2003. She ultimately signed a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning more.

People only like her because she's from Barbados. Really? Could there be a poorer reason to like her? Anyway, Rihanna is not talented in the slightest and her music is the definition of trash, and Work and Diamonds are so repetitive and annoying it puts Gucci Gang into perspective. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

Her voice sucks. Some of her older songs were good but her voice is bad. - DaWyteNight

2 Cardi B Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, known professionally as Cardi B, is an American rapper, songwriter, television personality and more.

Wow seriously they call her talented! - Soulstealer

She's basically a bland Nicki clone MEH.

3 Gucci Mane Radric Delantic Davis, known professionally as Gucci Mane, is an American rapper who has released 12 studio albums and over 70 mixtapes. In 2007, he founded his own label, 1017 Records.

4 Migos Migos is an American hip hop trio from Lawrenceville, Georgia, founded in 2008. They are composed of three rappers known by their stage names Takeoff, Quavo and Offset.
5 Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold is an American heavy metal band, that was formed 1999 in California. Their longest lineup of members was M. Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). more.

They only have 2 good songs. - DarkBoi-X

I hate these guys. - RadioHead03

I agree 100%. Almost every A7X song has a ripped off element, some songs have more than one. They should have been a cover band. Oh, and they aren't metal. - Metal_Treasure

I think these guys are one of the worst bands ever. I just can't really get into them and I don't think they are really that talented. They're not even real metal. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

6 Kanye West Kanye Omari West is an American rapper, songwriter, and fashion designer. He was born on June 8, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia. After West's parents divorced, him and his single mother moved to Chicago, Illinois. At the age of 10, West temporarily moved to Nanjing, China, because his mother was teaching more.

This guy is a genius. - AlphaQ

7 Adele Adele Laurie Blue Adkins is an English singer and songwriter. Graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace the same year. She is best known with her international hit singles more.

I wouldn't call her talentless she can hit high notes pretty well.

She has a nice vibrato and tone but she not a very "powerful" singer as everyone makes out to be. Beyonce and Lady Gaga have a much bigger vocal range than her - Ang2001

I disagree. I think she's talented. She sings very good. - Metal_Treasure

Incredibly overrated. I'm not trying to be biased, but seriously, there are way better singers. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

Better singers? Like who? Other than all your favorite rock singers. What singers are better? - B1ueNew

8 Lil Wayne
9 Ed Sheeran Edward Christopher "Ed" Sheeran is an English singer-songwriter and musician. He was born in Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire and raised in Framlingham, Suffolk.

Overwhelmingly overrated ginger Brit (no offense) whose songs are garbage, especially Shape of You and Perfect, AKA the most overplayed songs of all time. Seriously every time I go out I hear these stupid songs. They're not even good. In fact, they're terrible, especially Shape of You. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

To the person who thinks he's talentless, Ed Sheeran is doing EXTREMELY WELL right around the world!

Not a big fan of him, but I wouldn't call him talentless. - Userguy44

Not a fan of him, but I wouldn't call him talentless sure his lyrics are cheesy but he's a okay singer and a tolerable guitarist.

10 Chris Brown Christopher Maurice "Chris" Brown (born May 5, 1989) is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actor. Born in Tappahannock, Virginia, he was involved in his church choir and several local talent shows from a young age. He is most well known for his physical assault towards the singer Rihanna in more.

This guy deserves to be above Migos and Cardi B. - AlphaQ

His old stuff was pretty good, but he's not as great as his fans make him out to be. His fans act like he's this generation's MJ, but MJ never needed auto-tune and didn't sound bad live. Many of his contemporaries can all out-sing and out-r&b him any day. - DaWyteNight

The Contenders

11 Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lynn Lopez, also known as J. Lo, is an American singer, actress, dancer, fashion designer, author and producer.
12 Camila Cabello Karla Camila Cabello Estrabao, or professionally Camila Cabello (born March 3, 1997) is an American-Cuban musician. Camila was best known for being part of the girl group Fifth Harmony. Fifth Harmony are known for songs like Worth It, Work From Home, All In My Head (Flex), Bo$, and Sledgehammer. Camila more.

She may be better than she was in the worst girl group ever, Fifth Harmony, but she is still pretty horrific as a musician. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

Havana shows it. - Userguy44

NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva sorry to hear about your account getting locked, but I’m glad you’re back, and I agree, Camila is so overrated and for me, Fifth Harmony has always been terrible, even with her. - 3DG20

13 Avril Lavigne Avril Ramona Lavigne is a Canadian–French singer-songwriter and actress. By the age of 15, she had appeared on stage with Shania Twain; by 16, she had signed a two-album recording contract with Arista Records worth more than $2 million.

I majorly disagree... especially with her song "Let Me Go"

Untalented pop punk star that recently turned to pop music just like Maroon 5 and Coldplay. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

14 Kesha Kesha Rose Sebert (formerly known as Ke$ha) was born on March 1st, 1987 in Los Angeles, United States. She is best known for her hits like Timber, Tik Tok, and We R Who We R. more.

If you're talking pre -2017 music then I agree, but her music she released last year was pretty solid.

I agree with RogerWatersfan1999 that Praying is EXTREMELY overrated. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

15 Lady GaGa Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. more.

She can actually sing. - Userguy44

Not a fan of her, but I wouldn't call her talentless...

Not as talented as most people seem to think and her latest song with Bradley Cooper is overrated as hell. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

16 Kendrick Lamar Kendrick Lamar Duckworth (born June 17, 1987) is an American rapper and songwriter. Raised in Compton, California, Lamar embarked on his musical career as a teenager under the stage name K-Dot, releasing a mixtape that garnered local attention and led to his signing with indie record label Top Dawg more.

He's super overrated and not that lyrical like everybody claims he is, but he's not talentless. - DaWyteNight

Dude can write better lyrics than any rapper of this generation. For you to say that he's a Drake wannabe is like saying Michael Jackson was a Prince wannabe - Mcgillacuddy

He's nothing more than a Drake wannabe. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

He's not a drake wannabe. He actually raps about Meaningful things! - B1ueNew

17 Twenty One Pilots Twenty One Pilots is an American musical duo that is originally from Columbus, Ohio, who are best known for their songs "Stressed Out", "Heathens" and "Ride". Currently there are two members, Tyler Joseph (lead vocals, piano, keyboards, synthesizers, ukulele, bass and guitar) and Josh Dun (drums and more.

Really, really, really overrated emo/hip hop/indie band. They honestly have 0 talent, and their fangirls managed to become more cancerous than One Direction's fans, and it's pretty difficult to beat the level of cancer their fans reach. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

All their albums are trash. They'll never release a good album or hell even a slightly decent album. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

Extremely overhyped band. - Userguy44

All my friends are heathens take it slow ask for them to ask you who you know

18 Drake Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born on October 24, 1986 in Toronto, Canada. He started his career on Canadian reality show "Degrassi: The Next Generation".

He deserves to be higher than Kendrick... most of Drake's songs are garbage without any substance or meaning put into it... there's a few exceptions but not a lot.

19 Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. more.

Wouldn't call him completely talentless or talented either just in between.

Of course a negative music list wouldn't be complete without Justin Bieber. - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

I have no words for this guy except "what's wrong with you" - baekhyun26

Spam bots from Kazakh treat him like the best thing ever. - B1ueNew

I'm not a spammer, and I found him talented in his own genre when I checked out a few songs. Of course, he doesn't have the most regognizable voice as the spammers say, but at least he really can sing, unlike K.S. Chithra, another spam target being a beauty. - Alkadikce

Overvoted - Userguy44

22 Bob Dylan Bob Dylan is an American singer-songwriter, author, and artist who has been an influential figure in popular music and culture for more than five decades.

He's a decent songwriter but a mediocre vocalist.

23 Submarine Man Water Handblast (born Ardy Robert Andrews) better known by his name Submarine Man, is an American rapper known for his songs that heavily feature lyrics about foot fetishes as well as heavily autotuned vocals.

I this is a joke, but this man has zero talent. - Userguy44

One of the few items that actually apply the artists ahead generally actually are talented like Ed Sheeran, Adele and Kendrick Lamar or are mostly agreed to be talentless like Chris Brown or Nicki Minaj.
