Most Overrated Music Artists of 2020
I never really got into Billie Eilish. Maybe it's because I just haven't heard enough of her stuff. It's not that it's bad music; it's just the sort of cringy fake-edginess for normie HS girls that makes it unappealing. She always speaks in this low whispering tone and has minimalistic beats and rhythm that go with it. It doesn't fit the vibes of either a relaxing lo-fi song that you can just chill to or an energetic/badass workout or party song. It may go well with a quirky artistic coffee house vibe, but that's about it.
A lot of people don't understand her music so they assume she's terrible because she's different to the average pop star, she's very distinctive with her music and image and people are not used to it because they're used to hearing the same old average catchy simple pop music from artists that all look and act the same. She deserved that Grammy I honestly don't know why she felt the need to say Ariana deserved it she should've accepted and appreciated the moment because she created something unique and artistic.
Yeah, I will admit that she has become a little overplayed. But at least she is a lot better than the other overplayed artists. When I hear one of her songs, even without knowing anything, I know immediately that its Billie Eilish. Most pop artists don't seem to even aim for an identity. But I see where a lot of you are coming from, she isn't really saving popular music, she just so happens to be better than a lot of those other artists.
I don't hate her and most of her songs in her debut were good enough (my favorites being Wish You Were Gay and I Love You) but jesus christ, innovative? Groundbreaking? Original? Girl is just a darker version of Lorde with trap and rap beats, I don't get why many people is treating her as the future savior of music
Gonna write a rant about this one.
How is she overrated? She have only one song this year. And it's not even the worst song this year. If you think this is the worst, listen to Sasuke by Lil Uzi Vert or any song 6ix9ine have put out. And what's problem with the topic. We're not in 1950s anymore. She makes song for adult and teen, not for child. You questioned the existense of censorship but hate this song. Stuff like this is why age restrictions and censorship exists.
Her music only sounds good when you're partying and getting drunk or stoned. I say this because the lyrics in her songs are always about the same thing; being a "bad bitch", using her sex appeal to repeat songs about sex, making generic statements about how much material wealth she has, and nothing else.
Not only is WAP the most overrated song released in 2020 so far, but it is also one of the most overrated songs of all time. I don't understand why so many people like that garbage song.
The only reason she isn't played 24/7 on the radio is because of how vulgar her songs are.
Ariana, please do yourself a favor and either compose an original work with lo-fi vibes that fit your voice or just stop making music. If it doesn't have the lo-fi trippy vibes or if you don't feature with Jhene Aiko, then it won't sound nearly as entertaining.
Her voice is too soft for the songs that she sings. Her lyrics are also terrible as she brags about in her song 7 Rings... Her songs aren't like normal songs, which I think is cool if they song good. But her songs are just a bunch of mumbles...
I like Ariana Grande but I rarely hear her on the radio that much. I do hear sometimes at my school where the kids play her music but for the most part, I'd say it's 50/50.
She's a mumble singer. She needs to Learn to annunciate words.
I hate commenting on Drake every year because I've run out of things to say about him. What more is there to say about him? He makes unoriginal songs with lyrics that were obviously written by someone else or adds nothing as a featured artist on another song. Occasionally he raps as good as he did in his 2011/2012 days, but having that happen again is about as rare as finding a lit campfire in the middle of an ice storm.
His songs just aren't appealing to me... He doesn't sing but mumble and talk into the microphone. I know it might be his "style" but I think singers who try and sing their heart out deserve more recognition...
He doesn't even write his own lyrics, if he wasn't on Degrassi he'd be working a 9-5 just like everybody else
Her voice is powerful, but not always the inspiring kind. She's honestly very obnoxious and her song "Truth Hurts" hurt my EARS! She doesn't sing with as much talent as you think a popular star like herself would.
I don't understand the hype surrounding her music I don't really like it but her as a person she's funny and I love watching her interviews she seems like a nice person. Always makes me laugh.
Lizzo is such a pain to listen to. Her voice is incredibly annoying, her songwriting frankly isn't very good and for a person that's supposed to be "fun". She just comes of as pretentious.
I appreciate the positive message that she tries to share, but I honestly can't stand her music, which sounds really pretentious.
Play one simple piano tone for the entire song and sing in the most moody voice possible and boom! You get over 1 billion plays on spotify and itunes, constant radio sessions, and your name praised for a stupid amount of time.
He had 1 song that's popular and has 1B views and it wasn't even good. It was trash! This guy sounds like he got something shoved up his ass whenever he sings.
Oh lord, this guy is so overrated this year. The song Somebody You Loved has over a billion views and it's not even good song at all.
BTS is one of those bands that were hyped up because of the whole K-Pop craze. To all you normies out there, just because the music originates from another country doesn't mean it's good. Just look at other mediocre artists like Ed Sheeran who hails from the U.K. or Iggy Azalea who hails from Australia. And if we're talking about East Asia, I've listened to so much J-Pop and J-Rock that sounds a thousand times more original and beautiful than this boy band who just wants to copycat all of the bland pop sounds coming from the American Hot 100.
I really don't get their appeal. I tried listening to their latest album and good lord, it's their worst one. Half the tracks sound like mumble rap. I get that they're catchy and stuff but I think they don't work well with autotuned (which appears a lot in this album).
I am sorry but I have to blame you guys for not leaving Future behind and making him a one hit wonder what he should have been. The fact he is still popular is so beyond me
It's amazing that this man is still relevant. He's only good if you're about to be blackout drunk or in a trance induced by percs and lean combined. Otherwise, he was the first to start the trend that would forever destroy mainstream rap; MUMBLING. Can't enjoy him sober or even stoned.
A strong contender to challenge Rebecca Black for the most amount of Auto-tune used up in a song.
It's the same bland pop music over and over again from her. As a person she's also low key pretentious and snarky.
Yeah he was already popular enough but everyone is praising him again now that he died (RIP though).
Terrible voice and terrible vocal melodies.
Overhyped rapper. I've listened to some of his stuff and he only has one good song. The rest of the stuff just has the same generic rap beat used by at least 10 other rappers before him that are also better than him. And don't even get me started on his lyrics. His "Whole Lotta Red" album was all hype because the lyrics were just written in a lazily composed fashion that never got me engaged in the song.
I don't have high expectations for this long-overdue Whole Lotta Red album, which doesn't seem to be dropping anytime soon. I wasn't a fan of Die Lit and I'm most definitely not a fan of that baby voice he keeps doing.
Now mostly only overrated on this site. Given the heavy rock and metal fan-base demographic on this site, it doesn't surprise me that 2 of their songs were spam-voted to the Top 3 of last year's best songs list.
Besides it's kinda hard to take this band seriously when their entire appeal is based on scary masks/costumes with simplistic one-note breakdowns and a fanbase that thinks heavyness defines quality ("IOWA level heavyness").
Their music is best marketed for 12 yo middle school bullies
I still like them and I come back to them every once in a while, but yeah, I think I'm beginning to mellow out from Slipknot.
They are quite average in my opinion, and this is coming from a metalhead.
Yeah, to be honest I'm slightly growing out of them.
He's okay. I am getting a little bit bored of The Box constantly being #1. He's definitely got catchiness and some improvements since his previous work but he deserves the higher positions because of how much his songs get played for the first 2 months.
At least she's better than most artists on this list.
I'm biased, like very biased in this especially considering that I absolutely hate rock, but bare with me. Like usual, they just scream into the microphone, which isn't "singing." I suppose if you're into that kind of music then you're bound to like this songs like their music, but I have friends and family member that like one of their songs and treat them like a God which is completely absurd. They aren't special, they just had one good song and people totally forget that. -_-
I think they release one live album in 2020, but they are not overrated.
Green Day is one of my favorite bands but I'm however not a fan of their 2020 album.
Eww...I'll stick to FOB. Gross losers. Also, their new album made me barf with rage.
No one liked their new album though...
No one like Father of All...
I can soumd exactly like her by blocking my nose and singing
She's just an overrated obnoxious brat
Again, now only overrated on this site. Their latest single was again hopped up pretty quickly into the Top 2 of best songs of last year list.
Most Tool songs has been basically nursery rhymes over-stretched with 2-minute drum improvisations, random time signature changes, simple Drop-D riffs played at 0.25 speed while Maynard screams his soul for as long as possible to fill time.
They Simply made a comeback After 13 years so I think It Is Natural that people are talking a Little more about them.
This guy is still relevant and popular?
