Best Music Artists of 2010

The Top Ten
1 Eminem Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 300 million records making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce ...read more.

Eminem preaches and truly speaks his mind successfully, which not many artists do. With critics and outraged people all up in his face with his lyrics off albums such as The Slim Shady LP, The Marshall Mathers LP, The Eminem Show, and Encore. He was the biggest solo artist of the 2000s and he is STILL one of the biggest names in music today. He is still relevant with very little activity done over the last few months. And with his album on the way, I believe that he will strike us with something we wouldn't expect because he's like that, and that this is a new era. He's working with 2 Chainz and POSSIBLY Desiigner. Therefore, he still shows that he's relevant to other artists today such as Kendrick Lamar, etc., and that a lot of people want to collab with him like DJ Khaled, and many more.

There Em is again. He should make this site his official fan club. But seriously, he should've won a grammy for Recovery and his verse on any song makes it a whole lot better (Roman's Revenge, I need a Dr. , Drop the World, Forever, others). but serious Eminem fans know Relapse was a whole lot better. Recovery was just closure for Eminem and Songs for the Pop radio.

Its sad how the Rolling Stone Magazine, once one of the most reliable critics, lost their touch after 2010. Now they show more respect to Jay Z, Kanye West. Believe it or not but they removed LOSE YOURSELF from their list of the greatest songs of all time and replaced it with CRAZY IN LOVE by Beyonce. I Think Jay Z took over Rolling Stone.

Eminem is the best rapper that will ever live. I absolutely love him and I really hope and pray that he keeps singing for the rest of his life. I love him and he's changed for the better. His best song is "When I'm Gone" if you haven't heard it-- do! You're missing out.

2 K.S.Chithra

Queen of Music World. She is not only best in 2010 but always she is best in best. Chithra won the hearts of music lovers. Her voice is god gift to her, she is god gift to us. Every one love her songs beyond the boundaries. Her skill in handling words with music in unique.
