Top 10 Most Overplayed Music Artists of 2018Music artists, good or bad, who got WAY too much plays on the radio in 2018, up to the point where you would want to rather have a seizure than hear these artists on a regular basis.
I absolutely despise how deluded and ignorant people can be these days. They act like everything Ariana Grande does is a good thing but everything Victoria Justice does is wrong. The second Victoria gets the lead in a Victorious song, it's a problem but when Ariana Grande licks donuts in a shop and says I hate America, it's, "oh no, maybe she was drunk. Everyone makes mistakes." I know I should not be bringing it up and it's all in the past, but I don't hear anyone zipping it up about JB spitting on his fans. Even though she apologized, all she said was, "I didn't know I was being recorded and if I'd known, I wouldn't have done it." So you're telling me that she only plays nice, sweet and innocent on camera, but acts like a prick when no one is looking. Also, she always has to try and play innocent when she's not. I've actually lost interest in her ever since Victorious ended and afterwards in the years she made annoying songs. I like her as a good singer, but not in person. She acts ...more
Ariana Grande is an awful singer. People say that she's a really good at it and blah blah blah. She may be nice to her fans but that doesn't automatically declare that she is nice to people who aren't her fans. Seriously- you call licking donuts on display without purchasing them when the cashier wasn't looking and saying F) America and F) Americans when she got caught, do you think that's a good role model to you?! News flash! No, it's not. Even if she did say 'sorry' after the "accident", she probably wouldn't have if she didn't get caught doing so. People are way to obbessed with her and needs to learn that she is an awful person and also has a terrible 'singing' voice. You people are so- let's just say- in love with her. I don't get the obbession over her. I really don't. She's not the best singer in the world. She doesn't have a great personality. People need to realize that. Sadly, she still has her career.
@GeckoEyes, what you said was actually true, but most of the time she IS nice to her fans though despite saying one time that she wanted them to die. But I'm sorry I made you choke on cake, LOL, I hope you're okay!
Secondly, she's super overrated. She's all I hear on Toronto's Perfect Music mix and also, here's another example: Tori Kelly and Kelly Clarkson. She can't even sing as good as they can. Yet people treat her like she's the goddess. That's even WORSE than how people treat Beyonce-no wait, actually they are both bad.
She annoys me so much. She can't sing and her fans are the most unbearable people ever. Why does she get hype over doing absolutely anything? She could open a door and her stupid fans would go "OHMYGOSH A LITEREL GODDESS!" Some people probably only even listen to her to fit in. Whats the point in that? I don't mind the people who just casually listen to her but the people who manage to fit it into every conversation they have and it gets super annoying.
Yes. she is overrated but I mean- she's not awful. Her raps aren't great, that's for sure but she has some talent in her. I mean, 'I Like It' was a decent song but she screwed it up with her adding those guys who has their own solo and litterally just speak plane gibberish or spanish or whatever the language is! But, Cardi B is a very pretty girl. Look at the picture! I love that hair. But if she thinks sticking her tongue out makes her look cool, well, I hate to break it to her, but it's not cool. At all. And she's a stripper?! Well, why did I even comment on her- that's just nasty. I really don't get the point in stripping. She should definitely take lessons or something on now to rap or sing or whatever- I honestlyb don't think she's awful but she does get played a lot.
My least favorite artist. Her music is bland and her lyrics are just are just mean less junk for people who think being rich is a personality trait
Her songs don't have any meaning and she doesn't even write them. She's just the 'new Nicki Minaj' and that's it. Her songs are 'catchy' but she's so problematic and overrated.
Who even wants to be her, it must be painful to have golden spikes implanted into her head, why is her nose and mouth always covered by a bunny or vampire faccemask, and where did she get that bunny tail?
Drake was streamed like mad that year and I kept hearing his voice everywhere. I don't even hate Drake but Scorpion was such an awful album.
Am I the only one that thinks Drake was way more overplayed than Ariana Grande and Cardi B in 2018. Gods Plan, Nice For What and In My Feelings were all severely overplayed.
I definitely think he was more overplayed that year than Ariana Grande he had 7-8 songs that got big (most of which were pretty boring) Ariana had only 2-3.
I don't like ariana grande, but she looks like an angel next to drake. I've hated his music since I was in third grade.
Post Malone is OK. He's not great. I heard he is a not very nice person and all but I do like his songs. What I don't like is that he auto tunes his voice A LOT so I honestly have no idea how he got his career. In real life he is not great, and he is much better when he's on record, his looks aren't all that, but that is okay. He is a decent singer though. I like some of his songs. About 3 of them I like, other than that, he's not very good. Die For Me, Circles, and Sunflower are good songs from him but his voice can be a little bit annoying sometimes. It just depends on what he is singing. Some of his songs that he sings aren't technically fit for his style or voice too, so Post Malone is a decent singer, but at the same time he is not great and not all that. But what makes me hate him is that he is way overplayed. Escpecially in that song "Circles"
He's actually a pretty good artist, Rockstar, Circles, etc are all good songs but I agree they're overplayed. Just makes u annoyed even if u like the songs.
Forget everyone else on this list! Post Malone is so overplayed. Not just that, but his songs sound worse every time I hear them. Ariana Grande is also a little overrated, but she isn't painful for me to listen to. PM on the other hand drives me nuts with his heavy autotune, you can't even understand a single word. Please get him to number 1. I swear if I hear better now one more time, I will rip my ears off.
Rockstar, Better Now, Psycho, Congratulations, Jackie Chan, etc are all overplayed. It's like you can't find any radio station that doesn't play his generic music!
Taylor Swift isn't even as bad and overplayed as most of the artists here. All of her cheesy breakup songs don't really matter. Songs like Shake It Off and Bad Blood. But her other songs, especially her Christmas songs are the best! Taylor Swift is an amazing artist and I think you should give some of her best songs a chance. Don't worry, I'm not going to hate you for having your own opinion, because I'm not going to pull a bratty comment like that stupid retard Luvly. Yes, I said it. SHE IS A R E T A R D!
Her old songs are better than her new ones. Love Story and all of her other old songs have a nice, sweet and affectionate meaning and good lyrics about love. But what do her new songs have? The same line all the time, "I dumped my boyfriend" and "He dumped me vice versa to the point where it's just become boring, repetitive and annoying. Shake It Off, Bad Blood, and all those songs from her reputation concert album are SO overplayed. So she's not really overrated, since no one likes her music anymore. I really love her old music. It was nice and sweet plus she had a cute singing voice when she sand love story.
Whoever said that she isn't bad as most of the people here think, I agree. The only reason people don't like her is because of her cheesy break up songs. I think she's great and her country music is cool.
I think that she has a lot of good songs that are not being played and there playing all the suckie ones.if you start exploring you will realize that she isn't as bad as you think she is
The problem with Ed is that all of his annoying songs are overplayed ( Shape of You, I Don't Care) and most of his good ones are not played. He's a great singer, but Shape of You is wayy too overrated.
To the people b! tching about Ed Sheeran, YOU do better.
His voice is so clear that the listener can hear every word he sings unlike many, many, many other artists, AND he is EXTREMELY successful.
Perfect and Shape of You are generic, boring and repetitive songs and should not have gotten as popular as they did.
Some of his songs are overplayed but still...his songs are really nice.."castle on the hill","galway girl"..these are all really good music..and don't you dare say he's a bad lyricist..cause he's an awesome one and did you guys know that other artists want to sing songs written by him so they give money and pay for his songs..so yeah...he's a breathing,walking blessing to the music industry..
Imagine Dragons are AMAZING. Their songs have meaning, unlike some other people. Tbh, I really enjoy listening to their music, and I love how they think all their song ideas through. Even the over played songs they play have a deeper meaning than just words. its just my opinion, you can hate them if you want.
This band is amazing, but most people wont know because they are "hate" this band because THE RADIO plays maybe THREE of their songs too much. Well let me say this I NEVER get to hear these guys on the radio and they have Amazing songs(especially the older ones) such as: Bleeding out, its time, amsterdam, fallen, thief, dream, smoke and mirrors, 30 lives, round and round, my fault. Their music means something special unlike most music today. They give good messages (gold is about the dowside of being famous. 30 lives was written for one of their friends/fans that died of cancer. Bleeding out to me means doing anything for someone we love even if it means dying or bleeding out)
Believer, Thunder, Natural, those are all overplayed songs BUT Imagine Dragons is INCREDIBLE. Their music is so creative and it hypes me up. Not gonna lie though, they have better songs that are older though. (It’s Time, Demons, Radioactive, I Bet My Life)
I do not agree with this (in my opinion) Imagine dragons are the best band in my book, I hardly heard them on the radio in 2018. I don't know why these guys get so much hate their lyrics are meaningful and not "my boyfriend broke up with me" unlike most artists on the radio these days their concerts are amazing and send positive messages, so leave these guys alone all you haters
It's not even about her being overplayed that should bother me. Overplayed isn't a reason for me to dislike a song. I don't dislike her because she's overplayed, I actually like her style of music, because of her background in which makes her a special person. Besides, even though I like Camila Cabello, just because a person doesn't like her doesn't mean they don't know music. Have you ever heard of opinions? If you haven't, then start by shutting up and respecting those around you. -IShine&Illuminate
Camila was one of the main reasons why I didn't enjoy music from 2017. Her song Havana played so much in 2017, till now. I'm writing this in 2020, just to let you know. But she's a good singer, I like her voice and although she isn't one of my favorite singers, I appreciate those who have their own opinions about liking her.
Also, this is what surprised me the most. Camila can play guitar! I was like, are you freaking kidding me right now?! That's amazing! Plus, she's really good too. I watched a couple of duos where she's singing and playing guitar with Ashlee Juno and they're really amazing, no joke.
I actually like Camila Cabello. But you guys have the entitlement to your own opinions, plus I know this is about getting OVERPLAYED, not getting liked.
This is not whether we like the artist or not, the list is who was overplayed. And Camila was overplayed. I personally don't care for her but my friend HATES her. Says she has a whiny, annoying voice and personality; to a certain extent I see his point but he should rant about her whenever he hears her name mentioned or when Never Be the Same gets played.
Back on topic, she still was overplayed.
What about us is like pop music in an airport and the airport is so bad that it can only afford one song that is how overplayed this is. Also a million dreams and beautiful trauma were played tooo much
What About Us, Beautiful Trauma, A Million Dreams were highly overplayed throughout the year, they were so annoying,
Whatabout us, jesus, every 2 hours this is played, and on every single radio show without fail
Pink is queen bro if her music is overplayed its because its gpod unlike grande
Meant to Be sucks a lot, but one of her really great songs is "Name of Love". I recommend that you listen to it. It will definitely sound familiar to you once you start listening. - IceFoxPlayz
I hate Meant To Be, but I love her other songs like I'm A Mess, Name Of Love, and I'm Gonna Show You Crazy.
"Meant To Be" sucks, I agree, but "I'm A Mess" and "In the Name of Love" are good songs.
Okay but have any of you heard "I'm a mess"? That's one of her best songs.
she's an AMAZING artist... her whispering voice isn't that affective but its satisfying... yes she does deserve some fame but why like FIVE GRAMMYS man? Ariana grande was meant to win most of them but unfortunately she only got 1... ONE I SAY! kinda overrated and her new songs are kinda irritating... I'm just stating my opinion here... we can't deny the fact that billie is overplayed... most of her songs aren't even audible lmao
Billie is great, I listen to her when doing my laundry and I literally block everything out when I listen to her music. She got the best female artist for a reason. Maybe try listening to her other songs, other than bad guy and try listening to the lyrics.
Oh my god, where do I start? Her music is horrible. She literally just mumble raps. Her vibe screams 'I fake depression'. Everything about her sucks. Listen to Dr Dre or Eminem, if you want REAL music.
Where to begin with Billie Eilish? She has a creepy singing voice, a creepy face, creepy music videos, even though I've never seen them they just pop up just like that, she also has this obsession with singing about depression, death and other creepy stuff. So I just really hate her.
The only reason Maroon 5 is overplayed because their only songs that are practically overplayed on the radio these days are Girls Like You and What Lovers Do. Except WLD doesn't play as much anymore as GLY plays
Question, how do you go from the amazing "Songs About Jane" to the terrible "Red Pill Blues". Answer, you become Adam Levine and do anything for money.
Girls Like You is practically their only song being played. Their other songs are never played at all compared to that generic cancer "song". That song makes Taki Taki look like Hotel California
Since 2016 They became so annoying : Don't wanna know, Wait, Cold, Girls like you what too much of the same. The way Adam is singing in every single one of this songs annoy me so much.
I actually like Katy Perry. But I don't understand why Chained To The Rhythm doesn't play anymore. It only played once on my radio, that's it. And I actually like that song. Her only songs that ever play are Teenage Dream, Hot N Cold and Roar. But to be honest, she really doesn't get as overplayed as the other artists here which isn't really such a big deal anyway. Still, I'd just really appreciate though is "someone" could mind her own business. And by someone, I mean that retard, Luvly!
her old songs like ROAR and FIREWORKS were bops... we can't argue with that... but some of her new songs are eww... all those annoying die hard fans who are still living in 2012 keep playing her on repeat all day long... so annoying... but her old songs... I love em :)) just my opinion
Lol why is Katy Perry at 12, did she even have any songs out this year?
The only new song I know by Katy Perry was Chained To The Rhythm and that was 2017.
honestly, their music is just amazing and their lyrics are inspirational and carry beautiful messages and personally, it helped me during the tough times.
I see that a lot of you think that they're overrated and I totally respect your opinion, but if you could stop saying that they're gay as it is disrespectful and really offensive to all of their fans.
Also, I'm sorry if some fans may have sounded annoying, it's simply because some people really don't know when they trespassed their limits.
and please let's stay respectful towards BTS (or any artist for that matter) and their work.
bts are just an amzing group and I really love their music. I think they deserve a higher spot on this list as they've relised 3 albums in 2018 that all ranked top 1 on US charts.
No offense, but the MAJOR reason of my hate for them is the fact that they LITERALLY cash in on one direction's hiatus. PLUS their music sounds like a cat dying (JUST MY OPINION) and they try SOOO hard TOO hard at times to look good and be popular. PLUS if you look at their career success as an overall, they have been in the music industry since 2013 and they only became popular in 2018, two years after the hiatus became just too long for the weaklings (fake directoners aka ARMY) to bear.WHERE WERE YA'LL BETWEEN 2013 TO 2017 BRUH?! ( one direction IS famous right from the day it was born (2010 - for ever))
PLUS if all of this is not enough already, they are just too cliche, "wearing the same clothes" " weird hair color" "choreographed dances" can they try harder?! lmao. all of them look like they're always high and anyone who is gonna support them...please don't start with the fact that their lives were pathetic but look what they have become. BTS came up as a trend and it just ...more
The fanbase is so damn annoying. I mean, grow up already and stop acting like little sissys towards them. Keep your feelings to yourself and stop complaining and reminding everyone how you are in an "Army" or something in every situation possible.
Songs are decent on their own, barely showcasing anything new in the pop colture that hasn't been done already in America.
I think Beyoncé is overrated, because her songs are just not special or something. She got praised once but I could ask 100 people what songs they know of Beyoncé and they would only name songs from the 2010's.
What has she even released recently? She just doesn't have the songs to live up to the hype.
Brown Skin Girl is all I know in 2019. Except I never heard it before.
Overrated, overdone, tired of her, we need a new artist.
Panic!, now just The Brendon Urie Show used to have amazing Alternative/ Indie music and even though the new material is not as good, it is quality music that is overplayed. Basically, Panic!'s music is quality, but overplayed.
High Hopes was a great song, but very overplayed. Panic! is great and they have really good older songs, like This Is Gospel, Emperor’s New Clothes, and I Write Sins Not Tragedies.
Panic at the disco used to be good. I like I write sins not tragedies, but now it’s not even panic at the disco, it’s just the Brendan Urie project. And also, I think high hopes the most overrated and annoying song in 2019. Because they always play it on the radio and in my school.
I love highhopes but it is just played every second of every day. There are much better songs I would like to hear besides high hopes and on the alternative radio I write sins. They are good songs but over played. Panic at the disco is like my favorite band but high hopes has been played way too many times
Selena Gomez started off good with The Scene in like, 2008 or '09 I think and she sang really good. Then at one point she just started singing so terribly! Just listen to Bad Liar and TELL me that's not the most cringeworthy sound of singing you've ever heard. OMG, it was so BAD! And I'm literally not joking and this is coming from the girl who's super into Love You Like A Love Song and Naturally. I appreciate that she has so much fans because she really deserves it like any other artist, but she really can't sing. I saw this video, like so many videos were made of her worst vocals. I mean no disrespect, but sometimes she tries to hit a high note and she ends up singing the wrong note. I am so deeply sorry Selena Gomez fans, but I'm just stating my opinion here.
I'm so sorry when I say this, but whenever I hear people saying that SG can't sing, it's actually true. I'm just facing the facts here
I loved Selena Gomez so much, notice I said LOVED. I mean, a lot of people would probably agree with me when I say that she was so great with The Scene. Now, her music is just trash, she can't sing anymore and I don't know what else to say, bye.
Just because she's not a good singer as people like Beyonce or Alicia Keys or Mariah Carey or Christina Aguilera or even Tori Kelly, does NOT mean she's a terrible singer! THINK PEOPLE!
NF is clean and has a passion, he raps about things that we can relate to, If people wanna rap listen to him, If people hate than people hate, There is nothing you can do about it, but Me, he is my Idol.
He is the one artist that will really describe how he is feeling through raps and not hold back. The meaning behind his songs are so amazing and insperational
I love his songs though... Paralyzed, let you down, other ones I can't remember the names off the top of my head... Don't at me please.
Yeah Lie and Let You down is kinda annoying but his other songs are way better. Plus he is better than Nickelback
OMG I love her SO much. She's totally my type .
Ew just gross
Ew, God, she’s disgusting.
Halsey is cool in my opinion, though some of her songs are overplayed. Her voice is quite unique, and her older songs (Control, Castle, Colors, Sorry) are quite good.
Halsey is so annoying...her vocals are utter trash and she's very unlikable. Heck, I'd rather listen to Cardi B than her and I don't even like Bacardi that much now.
The whole hotel shampoo thing is why I despise people like Halsey, which is way too many. It is so ridiculous, I think I literally face palmed when I saw it. Halsey needs to grow up and find better, reasonable ways to get attention.
My hatred for this disgrace to humanities achievements is everlasting. She genuinely sickens me physically. She would be overplayed if someone played one short clip of her song in the middle of a mountain range where nobody could here it apart from mountain goats. 🐐
He is a brilliant soul brought to this Earth to guide us through our darkness. The bringer of happiness, the sharer of spirit, through his divine music.
How is he not higher? Gucci Gang... repeat that in your head all day... then you'll get the song that will slowly but surely drives you mad.
Ummm, I have never heard any Lil Pump song on the radio except for Gucci Gang and that song doesn't even pop up anymore.
So you guys don't like other good celebrities but like him, you guys are a disgrace
Beautiful voice, beautiful dancing, and beautiful everything she truly is talented and she can really pull of those bridges.
Her music sucks but she is really hot
@Luvly, how about YOU get a slap in the face for acting like a brat?
people listen to her music u guys could not see talent if it slapped u in the face
These guys are never played on the radio! If so, then they deserve to be played on the radio. Thunderstruck, Highway to Hell, Fly on the wall, all great songs made by a legendary band.
The most overrated rock band.
So simple that every song and album sound exactly the same.
I literally never hear AC/DC on the radio. What are you guys talking about?
So overplayed in rock stations.
Jojo Siwa surprisingly doesn't even annoy me as much anymore. Because the more I stop paying attention to Nickelodeon, the less I hear/see her cringey self. But then again, there's all those Jojo Siwa wannabes I have to look out for, which annoys me too. -Fender4Life
Honestly, I only knew her from Dance Moms but I found that she she preceded to have a music career, kind of disappoints me. Don’t hate her but I hear her everywhere nowadays especially in Disney Radio (my little sister loves hearing her)
It seems like she's famous for being famous. I see her annoying face everywhere and can't actally find anything that she excels in.
True. There could be some people in the world who love to wear bows and rainbow clothes. I mean, she may have been good on things like Dance Moms, but her music videos suck
He garbage. Him going to prison might be the first time he ever finished a sentence.
So scary that he/she (I don't know the gender! ) gave me night mares- like momo did...
Hope he gets life imprisonment for everything he did, on and off stage
What the hell has the world come too...?
