Overrated means something that is good but gets more praise than it deserves. Every singer on this list gets a ton of hate. - DCfnaf

I'm not sure getting loads of hate could also mean the artist gets overrated especially when it's a terrible one like Nicki Minaj or Justin Bieber for example - christangrant

But because of the hate they get people will go out and by their music (Which sometimes they might like it) and thus means they get more sales - christangrant

Hate her so much. - RaccoonCartoon

Terrible? Maybe.
Overrated? No. - DaisyandRosalina

2 Flo Rida Flo Rida Tramar Lacel Dillard, better known by his stage name Flo Rida is an American hip hop recording artist from Carol City, Florida.

Not overrated at all, in fact he's one of the most hated artists. Most people don't consider Flo Rida good, so he is not overrated. Overplayed does not mean overrated. - DaWyteNight

He sucks and his music doesn't deserve any praise they get (And this was another list VGF5 requested I make) - christangrant

I Saw Him And Pitbull On the inspirational Rappers list, I Was Hoping It Was a joke, HOW CAN 2 RAPPERS WHO RAP ABOUT SEX BE INSPIRATIONAL?!, You also forgot, Andrew taggart (The Chainsmokers), And Adam Levine (Maroon 5), And Silento (Correct me if he's already here,) - VideoGamefan5

This girl can't sing for crap and 99% of her music is total crap. Rihanna might be a horrible singer but at least her older music was kind of catchy, katy was never good. I kissed a girl is one of the biggest piles of crap I've ever heard and I can't believe this dumb broad made an entire career off of horrible songs, fake boobs and horrible live singing. - DaWyteNight

She is not terrible at all but she is REALLY overrated, singers that can be good like Ariana, Miley, Rihanna or Demi Lovato got hate as much as her, but Katy is a mediocre live singer at best, her songs (not all of them) are kinda childish. - DaisyandRosalina

More like Katy Generic - christangrant

He can't sing and is so ANNOYING he's just a 13 yr "star" with his little fan girls SHOULDD BE NO1 I find him worst then Justin Bieber because he can a least SING and all the othes because they have a talent but Jacob makes money doing MUSICALLYS

His older stuff was good, but now days he tries to be gangsta but it just comes across as fake. You can't go from "Say Goodbye" to "Look At Me Now", that crap ain't even music but his first 2-3 albums were pretty good, not amazing but good. - DaWyteNight

He is bad but not overrated. - DaisyandRosalina

He never made 1 good song - christangrant

It's Also Cause He Beat Rihanna. - kcianciulli

9 Pitbull Pitbull

Shame on the people who only know Pitbull's mainstream radio songs, this dude actually used to make some great music and actual "real" hip hop, not the pop-rap that you hear on the radio today. His older music was pretty damn good, I was listening to this guy before he was on every top 40 radio station. The dude actually has some rapping skill but sadly doesn't use it because he sold out to the music industry. - DaWyteNight

Him and Flo Rida make a Good team Sucking at making good music - christangrant

No talent, can't sing, can't dance, can't act, rude, ugly.

She is talented but definitely overrated. Really it is some of her music that is terrible, not her voice. (unlike rihanna, katy perry and selena Gomez who are actually terrible at singing) - DaWyteNight

Beyonce has millions of fans! I think she is too overrated and terrible, though, and she is inappropriate as well.

I can tell he's only on the list just because of his actions, not because of his music. His album from 2004 and 2010 are masterpieces. - Mumbizz01

Who put Kanye on this list? You gotta love him as much as kanye loves kanye - TrisTris

14 Iggy Azalea Iggy Azalea Amethyst Amelia Kelly, known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, and model.

I am going to kindly disagree with this list because there are a few on here who, although they're definitely overrated, they're not terrible. You just don't like their music which is fine, and there are others who aren't really overrated like Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj who, if anything, are mostly hated, but this is one of the few items I do agree with. I don't like her music (I'm not calling it terrible. I'm just not a fan of it) and it is pretty overrated.
