Top Ten Most Overrated Music Artists of 2017NicholasYellow
The Top Ten
Why is Kendrick seen as overrated? Can someone just tell me why? Wait, I think I got it. It's because everyone's in love with all this pop and rock that they can't take the time to appreciate the storytelling genius of Kendrick. Kendrick is my favorite artist and with his genius on tracks from "DAMN." are much better than most artists in the game right now. Unbelievable. - hiphopgod
He's been the rave of this year, but he's not that good! - RogerWatersfan1999
I hate how he barely tries in songs like Humble and DNA but that is the only reason why he is so popular
Let's just say he is not the best. Also, Humble is annoying.V 7 Comments
Well actually, @princepretty is right because he is only 17 but inappropriate. And when I am typing this he is gonna be 19 this year but he started when he was 16. - Carly19781
Lil pump, more like Lol Dump, because he belongs in the trash... Tell the Gucci gang he just got put on notice
Say same words 100 times and be famous! Okay...V 6 Comments
How on God's green Earth is Kendrick seen as more overrated than Taylor Swift? Taylor has some of the most bland and unoriginal songs I've ever heard. "Look What You Made Me Do" was a lazy attempt at trying to make herself seem edgy, "Ready For It? " was Taylor showing her hypocrisy by saying "the old Taylor's dead" only to make yet another song about an ex-boyfriend, and the entire "Reputation" album was just mediocre to say the least. - hiphopgod
I feel like she's REALLY overrated. I like her sound and taste for music, but she has too many vocal cliches and barely any of her songs are as unique as others. And she doesn't know how to dance very well, either.
Her music is generic pop music that gets annoying after you listen to it 3 times.
Her kind of music doesn't take that much to write anyway. If it is about making the songs with the most obnoxious choruses, then I guess she is a good writer. - DaWyteNightV 7 Comments
She is amazing.
She's just trash, Nicki Minaj might have been annoying but at least she had some kind of personality, this chick is just so bland, uninspired and forgettable. People always talk about how "she had it so hard growing up", but she doesn't put that into her music. One of the greatest mysteries of the world is how Bodak Yellow got to number 1. - DaWyteNight
To the people who are asking what's so special about cardi: HER PERSONALITY!
I HATE HER SO MUCH! She is SO OVERRATED as well as COMPLETELY TALENTLESS. Her abomination of a song B-B-Bod-dak Yell-o-ow (yes, I cringed while I put in the title) is one of the worst songs ever made (funny enough, it was either number 9 or 8 on the WatchMojo list of best songs of 2017). That song isn't even MUSIC. Cardi was just spouting stuff with her annoying voice ("I don't dance, I make money moves", SERIOUSLY?!?! ). Rap has SERIOUSLY gotten worse in 2017. COME BACK EMINEM, MAKE RAP GOOD AGAIN! - PhoenixAura81V 5 Comments
Definitely over rated and depressing
I don't think of Postey as underrated or overrated, because my opinion would be biased. Late in 2017, I had been dipping in and out of hip hop, and just when I was about to drop it I heard "rockstar" for the first time and it really drew me back in. He may not be my favorite but if it weren't for him I might be listening to pop trash so thank you Post. - hiphopgod
Most Lazy repetitive lyrics ever, it's just annoying how little he puts into his Lyricism
This picture scares meV 2 Comments
I understand that the guy has a lot of great lyrics. It's great to hear new rappers talk about actual, meaningful things as opposed to bragging about money, strippers, and cars and mumbling while they do it. It's just that I don't think Logic is a good rapper. His flow isn't that good and his voice doesn't command your attention. There are plenty of better conscious hip hop artists out there. Just listen to Kendrick and J. Cole. - phillysports
I like Logic but Everybody the album was kind of disappointing. When I first heard the song Everybody, I was thinking that this album was going to be the sickest, but sadly "Everybody" was the best that album had to offer. - DaWyteNight
I have to disagree personally. Logic talked about suicide and his life story, so basically by saying that his album was “overrated” you’re basically saying that suicide and racism don’t matter.
Dimash has an unique voice, model-looking appearance and very high human abilities
I like how he did the diva dance from the fifth element - iggyjepsen
At least from recent music listings and votes going on right now. - CrimsonShark
The haters of Dimash are all racist.
Sorry, but that's like saying all Republicans are racist. Not liking Dimash doesn't make you racist. - allamassalV 8 Comments
Why do we give this guy attention? He just shouts his name 20 times. Avicii was a better DJ
This guy isn't even an artist. - DaWyteNight
He’s is not overrated
Artists that a lot of people dislikes are not overrated. - Swellow
Just trash, her music is complete trash and it always was. Now days she's just in the media and it's annoying hearing about her all the time, but her music is hardly played on radio now (yes! ) - DaWyteNight
Both Tay and Demi are both on the radio! Never heard any of Katy's main songs once! - MissRWBY202
Katy Perry. PRISM was good but in Witness, she SMOOSHED her ENTIRE talent that it isn't even on the radio anymore. At least Taylor Swift only smooshed half of her talent and Demi Lovato a few. - MissRWBY202
Rip. - TwixxV 1 Comment
Most boring, uninspired rapper ever. It's no surprise that he and Cardi B made a song together. - DaWyteNight
He is overrated because most of his songs are just plagiarism, he has the most annoying voice and he tries to collaborate with other popular artists with the only purpose to increase his own more popularity. No respect for him.
He is overrated because of Shape Of You. But Divide had some amazing tracks like Galway Girl, Perfect and Barcelona. - Anushka125
I kind of feel like he is underrated because people do not like Shape Of You, but there are much better tracks on Divide like Castle On The Hill.
If I hear Shape of You on the radio one more time I swear... - MetarockV 5 Comments
How is she only 53?! What About Us, which in my opinion is already an annoying and overly melodramatic song to begin with, was playing literally everywhere in late 2017 and early 2018, to the point where it drove me insane! Not to mention that there's a whole bunch of people on here who act like Pink is someone EVERYONE has to like, even after that song. - allamassal
LOL! I accidentally typed "hoe" instead of "how" and didn't even notice! - allamassal
What about us annoys me, but honestly all of her songs have annoyed me over the years. - DaWyteNight
Bitch what she’s amazing - Twixx
Sick of this guy popping up on everyone's songs. He has a really awful voice with auto-tune, he sounds like if Gucci Mane sang with auto-tune. Yuck. - DaWyteNight
I do not understand why everyone thinks she is the best, but they can think that if they want, I just won't agree.
I'd say they deserve more credit. Some members may be better than others but the Migos are strong together. Seriously though, when's Takeoff going to get his solo career because he is straight FIRE! - hiphopgod
She should be #1 Sorry not Sorry was everywhere in 2017
At least she actually has talent. That's pretty rare for today's pop music standards. I'd take her over katy, selena, taylor, rihanna etc any day of the week. - DaWyteNight
This is my opinion okay? - MissRWBY202
Even though it was wasted on a few songs. At least she did not SMOOSH her talent. :/ Taylor Swift SMOOSHED half of her talent. While Demi smooshed only 1/8 (it's pretty rare). Why? - MissRWBY202V 1 Comment
Sorry, but I am not down with a white supremacist stealing black music.
Love So Soft was a disappointment compared to her older songs. I am very sure that she is on The Voice now because of that song. - allamassal
Well hey, at least her music is better than fifth harmony's. - DaWyteNight
Like what someone said about Beyoncé, "overrated every year" - DaWyteNight
Most overrated artist ever
Always overrated. So sick of her being rubbed in my face all the time. - TJSlipperman
Yeah, pretty much. More so overrated as a celebrity, but she didn't release any music in 2017 (thankfully) - DaWyteNight
Overrated every year.
Thank God Uzi has been relatively untouched. He may not be the best rapper, and his album was... average, but Uzi's style and rapping ability are awesome to me. Uzi is a great artist. - hiphopgod
She is underrated. Sure, her hit songs aren't the best she can do, but go ahead and "take a breath and dive in deep" to her other music and you will appreciate the best singer ever!
Another bland pop artist who shows little to no personality in her songs. Definitely overrated. - hiphopgod
He's just a watered down version of Plies but he is nowhere near as good as Plies is. Sometimes his voice is downright unlistenable, and he has some of the worst lyrics I've heard ever, right up there with Lil Wayne.
She's had virtually no hits this year at all. How is she overrated? - Swellow
Her songs are boring as hell
Two hit songs isn't overrated. - Swellow
Whenever Lorde releases something, it’s automatically the best thing ever? That’s not right.
Revival is so bad
Eminem is by no means overrated. You can't be if you had the lowest selling album he's ever had. Besides, his lyrics are so good on Revival, but the production is so bad. - tripsten
I don't understand why people hype him up so much every album, even when they know it will not be the Em from before. People know what he is now, yet still await his album every time and end up disappointed. - DaWyteNight
Revival sucked - hiphopgod
They recently turned into a twenty one pilots ripoff band, which is... an improvement, at the very least.
If I have to hear that awful song they made with Coldplay one more time, I might go deaf. - RogerWatersfan1999
I think they're amazing.
She was actually GOOD in 2017. The song Malibu is EXCELLENT! - PhoenixAura81
Overexposed is more like it. - Swellow
Hasnt had a solo hit this year. - Swellow
I hate them so much
My friend loves them. I do not.
Don't get it.
<- Look at that hideous picture!
His music is irritating to the ears.
NO MEANING IN HER SONGS
Who thought it was a good idea for her to ruin Wild Thoughts and how high was Kendrick Lamar when he decided to put her on his album as a feature. And that new N.E.R.D. song with her is trash!
Adam Levine could just take Maroon 5 for himself, turn it into a single-man music project and still receive as much commercial success as it does today. - CrimsonShark
More like Adam Levine and some generic mainstream producers, it's not even Maroon 5 anymore and it hasn't been ever since 2011. - DaWyteNight
I love Maroon 5! Especially Wait.
He's not overrated cause a lot of people hate him. He still sucks though - Iamcool
Personally I am a former crybaby (melanie Martinez fan). I used to listen to her music and loved it. But honestly her music just got boring and ever since the Timothy Heller incident I've just gotten tires f her. I don't think the second album will be that good to be honest
The guy's voice is so...um, I don't even know how to describe it. Just whiny and lazy! - DaWyteNight
