Most Overrated Music Artists of 2020

The Top Ten
Billie Eilish Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O'Connell, known professionally as Billie Eilish (born December 18, 2001) is an American singer and songwriter, best known for her songs "When the Party's Over", "Bury a Friend" and especially "Bad Guy".

I don't understand what's so great about her tbh. I don't dislike her just because of her fanbase being mostly girls who fake depression, but I really don't like her music at all. I am sorry Billie Eilish fans but it's just so boring and her songs sound all the same.

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 think Billie eilish is a good artist, but she's not a top tier singer or whatever. Her execution can be good, I think she does have some good qualities but I think her whispery music style can get really repetitive.

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

Cardi B Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, known professionally as Cardi B, is an American rapper, songwriter, television personality and former stripper.

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.

Slipknot is a good band and deserves its success . Cardi b has Simply no talent

She is a brat. Her songs are ruined by her bitchy voice. Her songs aren't special and she doesn't deserve the attention she gets for her terrible raps.

Ariana Grande Ariana Grande-Butera, known professionally as Ariana Grande, is an American singer and actress. She was born on June 26th 1993 in Boca Raton, Florida to Joan Grande and Edward Butera. She is best known for her role as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious and its spin-off show Sam & Cat. ...read more.

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.

Lewis Capaldi

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.

I also hate this song but it only has 143 million views on Youtube. (Sorry I actually viewed it a couple times when I was trying to figure out what the fuss was about this song. The lyric video has more but still only 234 million.

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.

I have to admit, I really love his songs but they are overplayed.

Lizzo Melissa Viviane Jefferson, known professionally as Lizzo, is an American rapper, singer, and songwriter. Born in Detroit, Michigan and based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, she is best known for her songs "Truth Hurts" and "Good As Hell".

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.

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.

Lizzo is a good artist! She is an amazing singer and she sings better than all of ya on here! She is amazing! She has a greta voice!

Drake Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born on October 24, 1986 in Toronto, Canada. He started his career on Canadian reality show "Degrassi: The Next Generation".

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...

Future's partner in crime when making auto-tune manufactured hits

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

he's not that overrated

Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. ...read more.

Sorry to hope on the notorious JB hatred on this site, but in hindsight it really doesn't help when he makes a sequel for the worst songs of all time.

I don't think Yummy is that overrated though it got high on the charts yes but that was more due to hype it does not seem like anyone actually likes the song. I predict it will not stick around.

Yeah the beibs is overrated. He released a song called yummy. WhAtS hIs PrObLeM?

yEAH yOU gOT dAT yUUUUMMY yUMMMMY yUUUUUUUMMMY

No.
I'm not defending JB this time because his album was trash and his Yummy song is garbage.

UNIVERSAL TRUTH: HIS SONGS SUCK! JUST LIKE HIM

Slipknot Slipknot is an American Alternative/ Nu Metal band formed in 1995 from Iowa. The band is best known as one of the pioneers of the New Wave of American Alternative Metal during the late 1990s - 2000s and are distinguishable by the band's clothing choices, consisting of black/red jumpsuits and horror ...read more.

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.

I cannot understand this one. Are you really saying Slipknot is more overrated than ariana Grande or cardi b?

They are quite average in my opinion, and this is coming from a metalhead.

Khalid Khalid Donnel Robinson, known mononymously as Khalid, is an American singer and songwriter. He is signed to Right Hand Music Group and RCA Records.
Kimbra Kimbra Lee Johnson, known mononymously as Kimbra, is a New Zealand recording artist based in Los Angeles.

People actually like this scumbag of a singer? Pathetically disgusting. You need to have an appalling taste of music to actually like this brat's music.

This has to be a joke. She never even had a hit aside from that one song back in 2011.

Don't know why but for some reason she seems to be on every negative list.

Who keeps adding Kimbra to every single list?!

The Contenders
Juice WRLD

Yeah he was already popular enough but everyone is praising him again now that he died (RIP though).

He is the best rapper in my opinion and not overrated at all.

12 year olds: "HoLy CrAp HiS mUsIc Is So MeAnInGfUl".

Hayley Williams Hayley Nichole Williams is an American singer, songwriter and musician. She is best known as the lead vocalist, occasional keyboardist and primary songwriter of the American rock band Paramore. In 2020 she started a solo career.
Lil Baby
Roddy Ricch

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.

Jojo Siwa

She's annoying, obnoxious, and loud. I can't do any of these things, and using them as not only her personal but her in her songs in just flat out horrible. Her songs make my ears ring, and I think she needs to tone it back a few hundred notches... Isn't she like 16?

To Bammer73, I think she's only relevant today because of her changing into a more mature style. And also her TikToks.

Is she that relevant today?

She's probably forced by her Parents to keep this "kiddy" look. I feel so bad, she's probably gonna have a bigger breakdown than Britney Spears

Bangtan Boys BTS, also known as Bangtan Boys, is a seven-member South Korean boy group formed by Big Hit Entertainment.

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).

So bad that they’re on here twice

Playboi Carti

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.

Queen Queen are an English rock band formed in 1970. Members were Freddie Mercury (Vocals and Piano), Brian May (Guitar, Vocals), Roger Taylor (Drums, Vocals), and John Deacon (Bass Guitar, Vocals). Before forming into Queen, Brian May and Roger Taylor had played together in a band named Smile. Freddie Mercury ...read more.

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. -_-

queen *stock fart sound effect*

Green Day Green Day are an American pop punk, punk rock, and alternative rock band formed in East Bay, California in 1986. The members include Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals and guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass), Tré Cool (drums) and Jason White (guitar) . Green Day are associated with punk rock, pop punk and alternative ...read more.

No one liked their new album though...

Tool Tool is an American progressive/alternative/post-metal band, that was formed in 1990. ...read more.

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.

Lil Uzi Vert Symere Woods, better known by his stage name Lil Uzi Vert, is an American hip hop recording artist and songwriter.

This guy is still relevant and popular?

Future

A strong contender to challenge Rebecca Black for the most amount of Auto-tune used up in a song.

He sounds like he has Down Syndrome lol.

Moneybagg Yo
Children of Bodom Children Of Bodom was a melodic death metal band from Espoo, Finland. Formed in 1993, the final lineup consisted of Alexi Laiho, Janne Wirman, Henkka Seppälä, Jaska Raatikainen and Daniel Freyberg.

I'm gonna get some heat for this but their latest album was TRASH! The growling noises are annoying and the singers sound like they're shoving frogs in their throats.

This is actually a band I like. Was only put her because they elevated pretty high up on last year's best lists for their disappointing album.

I personally wasn't disappointed by their album, they had good songs on there.

Tyler, The Creator Tyler Gregory Okonma (born March 6, 1991), better known by his stage name Tyler, The Creator, is an American rapper, record producer, and music video director. ...read more.

Don't get the appeal to this guy at all. Fun personality but his "music" is just kooky for the sake of it and I've tried many times to like it. It just sucks
