Top 10 Worst Singers of 2023

These singers sucked in 2022 and might as well suck in 2023, which I obviously hope to be wrong about. More entries to be added as the year progresses. Whether it's because of the vocals or the songwriting, get your entries in, but remember to be constructive about your criticism instead of just saying "I hate him/her" or "He/she sucks".
The Top Ten
1 6ix9ine Daniel Hernandez, known by his stage name 6ix9ine, also known as Tekashi69 or simply Tekashi, is an American rapper. He is mostly known for his legal issues, particularly his sexual crimes... read more

It looks like this pedophile is finally no longer relevant, and his "fans" have finally moved on from him. Do not give him any attention now, and hopefully he'll go back to prison.

I have never, in my entire life, met someone who was a fan of 6ix9ine.

2 Tory Lanez Daystar Peterson, better known by his stage name Tory Lanez, is a Canadian rapper and singer. He received major recognition from the mixtape Lost Cause and the singles, "Say It," and "Luv", which peaked at number 23, and 19 on the Billboard Hot 100 respectively.

I hope this lying douchebag gets what he deserves after shooting Megan Thee Stallion.

For what he did to Megan Thee Stallion, he deserves to be in jail for 10 years.

3 Leah Kate

The worst Olivia Rodrigo clone and one of the worst singers ever. Her vocals are not terrible, but they clearly don't stand out. She has no personality at all (she basically jumped onto the pop-punk revival bandwagon), and her lyrics are too crude for kids and too dumb for teenagers.

The worst part is that she's in her late 20s and still manages to make songs more immature than Gayle and Olivia Rodrigo (who's a great songwriter for her age). When she released "Twinkle Twinkle" last year, she became a subject of ridicule, and her career ended before it could even begin. She will be forgotten this year for sure.

4 Dahvie Vanity David Jesus Torres, better known by his stage name Dahvie Vanity, is an American singer-songwriter and rapper born on September 5, 1984, who is best known as one half of Crunkcore duo Blood on the Dance Floor and as the face and creative mind behind Industrial project Sinners are Winners. He is also... read more

Get him to prison ASAP. He's just as bad as a musician and a person as 6ix9ine.

5 Machine Gun Kelly Colson Baker, better known by his stage names MGK and Machine Gun Kelly, is an American rapper and actor, from Cleveland, Ohio.

His pop-punk revamp sounded fresh at first, but now it just sounds like a caricature of everything pop-punk should not be. I hope he goes back to rap already.

Edit: He went back to rap, but he's still terrible.

I hope this guy just fades into obscurity sometime in the future.

6 Tyga Micheal Ray Stevenson, known by his stage name Tyga, is an American hip hop recording artist. In 2011, Tyga signed a recording contract with Young Money Entertainment, Cash Money Records and Republic Records.

Why are all these artists down to collaborate with him? His vocals are annoying, and his lyrics are awful. Hopefully, he'll be forgotten about over these next couple of years.

7 Blueface

Why are you giving attention to this artist? He fell off and will eventually be forgotten.

8 Colleen Ballinger

Yeah, this YouTuber is just a whiny, pathetic human being. She makes excuses instead of apologizing for what she did wrong, doing her little acoustic guitar schtick while singing about the (deserved) hate she's getting online. Good riddance if we forget about you, but honestly, she deserves the loathing attention.

Just in case you guys were living under a rock, Miranda Sings, a YouTuber that used to be very popular, was accused of racism after an old video of her performing Beyoncé's song "Single Ladies" while wearing blackface resurfaced on the web. I honestly didn't think that a YouTuber could be that racist, and I don't like it one bit. She deserves every criticism she can possibly get for doing that type of BS.


9 Lil Mabu

This man is just a rich white kid from NYC who writes horrible songs about how rich he is. Let's not give him any attention.

10 Lil Pump Gazzy Garcia (known professionally as Lil Pump, born August 17th, 2000) is an American rapper, producer and songwriter. Gazzy began his career in 2016 with a collaboration freestyle with Smokepurpp, which was eventually posted in Soundcloud to popular success. He broke out to mainstream the following... read more

He did just release a new album, but I have a feeling it will flop. Fantano gave it a "Not Good" rating. Let's leave Sir Pumpernickel back in the late 2010s.

He tried to make a comeback last year but failed miserably. Let's leave Gummy Worm Hair back in 2019.

The Newcomers

? Sexxy Red

A Cupcakke wannabe who somehow got famous because she's friends with Drake.

The Contenders
11 Andrew Taggart Andrew "Drew" Taggart (born December 31st, 1989) is an American DJ and singer who is best known for being one half of the DJ duo The Chainsmokers.

I've never been a fan of the Chainsmokers. In their early days (2013-2015), they were just tolerable. But since they released "Closer" in 2016, my loathing for this fake EDM has never stopped. He can't justify his vocals either because even when overprocessed and autotuned, they are trash. He and David Guetta need to get out of the way for the real EDM DJs that don't get nearly enough recognition.

The Chainsmokers' music has always been pretty generic. Drew's vocals are very whiny, and he can sound bored at times. Let's leave them in the late 2010s already.

12 Tom MacDonald Thomas "Tom" MacDonald (born September 21, 1988) is a Canadian rapper, songwriter, and former wrestler who first rose to fame after the release of his song "Dear Rappers" and has had three songs that have appeared in the Billboard Hot 100 since then.

The faster this man is out of the music industry, the better. He released that song "Facts" this year with Ben Shapiro (where Ben Shapiro "straight up spit gold bars haha"), which is guaranteed to make it onto my worst songs of 2024 list. It doesn't sound badass to rap about terminally online conservative bull or who we "don't rap about strippers, drugs, and hoes".

He's also just another hateful person. Can't believe Canada produced this guy, but then again Canada also gave us Steven Crowder, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

13 Jared Leto Jared Joseph Leto is an American actor, singer-songwriter, and director. He is well known for being the lead singer of Thirty Seconds to Mars.

Why does he sound like he has a bad cold on 30STM's new album? I can't believe the same guy who brought us songs such as "The Kill (Bury Me)", "Kings and Queens," and "Closer to the Edge" also brought us the massive dud that is "It's the End of the World But It's a Beautiful Day." It sounds worse than the worst albums made by Imagine Dragons, The Chainsmokers, OneRepublic, and even Maroon 5.

If you doubt me, go give the album a spin. Or better yet, don't!

This wannabe Jesus Christ's music is extremely generic nowadays, and he's been music trend-chasing for a while now. 30STM just released a pretty bad single, "Stuck," with bland instrumentals, and his vocals sound pretty tired as well. The "ra-da-da's" at the bridge and outro make it even worse. Also, he's got an ego just as big as Ye, Adam Levine, and Ronnie Radke.

14 Corey Feldman Corey Scott Feldman is an American actor and singer. He became well known during the 1980s, with roles as a youth in films such as The Fox and the Hound, Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, The Goonies, Stand by Me, The Lost Boys, Gremlins and The 'Burbs.

Why is he desperately trying to be a musician even though he can't sing? If you watch Anthony Fantano, you'll know how bad his "music" is. "Angelic 2 the Core" was his worst album of the decade. But at least it doesn't really sound like he's trying to be mainstream.

15 Ariana Grande Ariana Grande-Butera (born June 26, 1993) is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. Her four-octave vocal range has received critical acclaim, and her personal life has been the subject of widespread media attention. She has received numerous accolades throughout her career, including two Grammy... read more

I'm sure I've said this before, but she has long overstayed her welcome in the music industry. She used to be better pre-2016, but now all I hear is bland, pretentious, overproduced crap from Ariana. While she's still relatively young, she can either retire with the sound she's got or create a new sound for her 30s. I'm done with her copy/paste songs.

16 Forgiato Blow

Nothing more to say about him other than that he's just a garbage human being. He released that transphobic "Boycott Target" song last year, which I'm sure only appealed to the mindless drones that support Trump on Truth Social. I don't like him (in fact, I hate him), and he only contributes to the division being sown in this country.

A terrible MAGA rapper who made that horrible song called "Boycott Target," which has openly homophobic and transphobic lyrics. It's so agonizing it makes Tom MacDonald sound inoffensive.

17 Adam Calhoun

He made an album with Tommy the McDonald Clown and deserves to be ignored.

He looks like an overweight Texas man in his 60s.

18 Soulja Boy DeAndre Cortez Way (born July 28, 1990), known professionally as Soulja Boy Tell 'Em or simply Soulja Boy, is an American rapper and record producer. In September 2007, his debut single "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" peaked at number 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The single was initially self-published... read more

This idiot still makes music in 2023?

19 Gayle

It looks like she will be added to the very short list of artists who had a song at or near #1 but never had a song hit the Hot 100 again, along with artists like Crazy Town and Daniel Powter. Like Crazy Town, Gayle sounded like she was trying to emulate an artist ruling the world at the time their song went big (in Gayle's case, Olivia Rodrigo, and in Crazy Town's case, Linkin Park). Their second album flopped hard and caused their breakup.

20 Kanye West Ye (born Kanye Omari West; June 8, 1977) is an American rapper, songwriter, record producer and fashion designer. He is regarded as one of the most influential, as well as controversial, artists of the 21st century... read more

Dear Ye,

I loved your music growing up. You are a great artist, great rapper, great producer, and great songwriter. However, all you need right now is a break. The last few songs you released sound like a man who has descended into complete madness and needs a lot of help before he destroys not only himself but also his family and surroundings.

I am deeply saddened and appalled by your recent antisemitic and anti-black comments, your praise of Hitler (although David Bowie made similar declarations in the mid-70s when cocaine was impairing his judgment), and everything that's been going on around you lately.

So please, Ye, before you release more terrible music that exemplifies your dangerous extremist views, and before you hurt more people, get help. You need it really badly!

21 Ronnie Radke Ronald Joseph Radke is an American singer, songwriter, rapper, musician, and record producer born in Las Vegas, Nevada. He is the current singer of the band Falling In Reverse and is the former singer of Escape The Fate.

He's one of the most pretentious singers in existence. Recently, he released a new song with Falling in Reverse called "Watch the World Burn," which sounds like Tom MacDonald making a rap-metal song. If you don't believe me, go listen to it and you'll see what I mean. Or better yet, don't listen to it!

This guy is such a douche, and his vocals are very whiny. Post-hardcore/metalcore is a pretty unlikable genre, honestly. FIR's song from last year, "Zombified," is pretty mediocre.

22 Jax

I gave her a pass last year because I can't help but glaze over the pop-punk revival sound in "Victoria's Secret". I know the song is trash, but it's a guilty pleasure to listen to. But this year? Nope, she's on my list.

"Cinderella Snapped" is such a cringe song. It sounds like Britta from Community just went on and spouted some politically incoherent bull which amounts to fake feminism. I'm a progressive, and even I don't like this.

Jax is the perfect example of "good message, bad execution." I didn't hate "Victoria's Secret," though I didn't like it either. But "U $," and "Cinderella Snapped" are Jax at her worst. If you want to know why she's so high on the list, you should hear at least one of them.

23 Yuno Miles
24 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.

He's just a troll artist. Stop giving him attention already.
