Top Ten Most Underrated Pop ArtistsToptenPizza Singers who deserve more attention in the pop genre
The Top Ten
She is the pop artist I respect the most. She's real. So many people only know her for Chandelier and Elastic Heart. She also sang Hostage, Fire Meet Gasoline, Big Girls Cry, The Girl You Lost to Cocaine about her depression and addiction. She uses no auto tune. - ToptenPizza
I agree, Sia is incredible. One of those singers whose emotions you can feel simply through their voices. an amazing songwriter, who really doesn't use auto tune. Her live performances are proof of her talent and artistic vision! - keycha1n
Time made me come to respect Sia's work over the years, she's an amazingly talented singer and songwriter and people give her too little credit for it.
Yes. - TwixxV 21 Comments
Most people just know Melanie just for Pity Party & Dollhouse, but she has so many other records like Bittersweet Tragedy, Gingerbread Man, Tag You're It, and Mrs. Potato Head. She has such a good message behind the songs too.
There isn't much to say about Melanie. She's so amazing, and effortlessly mixes pop and alternative so she isn't a cookie cutter copy of Selena Gomez, for example. Her pastel, frosted beats are catchy and stick in your head, and are perfect with deep, honest lyrics.
At one point, I went from mainstream songs to secondary artists. I went from Bea Miller to Phoebe Ryan to Halsey to Sia, but I didn't like all of their song; just one or two. Then I found Melanie Martinez while looking at random music videos. I fell in love with ALL of her songs, and was the first artist that I really liked and focused on. The message is kind of disturbing, yet amazing.
She's the best!V 28 Comments
Halsey and Melanie are the worst out there. Melanie is a little better as she's actually making a little more alternative music, Halsey on the other hand is a pop "artist", and I use artist loosely. She markets her aesthetic more than her music which By the way halsey fans, SHES NOT MAKING SOME REVOLUTIONARY MUSIC! It's subpar and not special. Nowadays Halsey trying to be Alternative is being mainstream as trying to be different is now doing the same thing as everyone else. Halsey is not the second coming of Christ chill the hell out
You voted for her because you hate her... What kind of logic is that? - Lilycat14192
All her songs are so creative, I love her. Her voice is so beautiful, I listen to all of her songs and like her! She's the first artist that I liked all of her songs
Halsey is the best singer ever. Hopeless Fountain Kingdom was the Queen of music proving that she can write radio music, and she obviously can. To anyone who insults her for her popular music:1. If you do not like it, it is still better than music like Strip That Down. 2. HEAVEN IN HIDING. Also, Halsey actually has meanings in her songs. - lovefrombadlands
I actully consider her alternitiveV 7 Comments
I remember her on mtv back in the day. Everywhere was a great song.
Her voice just makes me melt. All you wanted was perfect

Daya is by far my favorite artist. She has such amazing music, yet when I talk about her no one knows who she is! Everyone only knows her from Sit Still, Look Pretty. Honestly, I like her unpopular songs better! This is why I think the amazing singer Daya is super underrated.
SHUT UP Daya is very talented - riri_lol
Only the gays appreciate what carly rae jepsen contributes to music
She's like a one hit wonder so yeah
Just listen to her album Emotion...
She makes amazing music. - TwixxV 5 Comments
She used to be really popular in the early 2000's, it's just that time has changed people sleep on her now. I wouldn't say that she's underrated - dustymuave
Love her pop-rock style and I don't know why so many people don't know her?
Listen to her songs all the time. My favorite is "This Is How You Remind Me"
I listen to her "Nobodies Home" every day.V 2 Comments
I think Stacie Orrico is ok. Not amazing, but not bad.
WHERE IS SHE - mood333
Adorable, badass, British babe. Everything you could ask for in music with her accent as the cherry on top!
She took a lot of stands on political views, for example f you was against George Bush, and should be every homosexual person's theme song. - ToptenPizza
This guy has an impressive voice. He should have more hits. I hope he doesn't join the one hit wonder club... - ToptenPizza
Take Me To Church was an absolute disaster, but I feel like I should have given him another try. Jackie and Wilson was decent. - WonkeyDude98
I love hozier but if I'm not mistaken he's alternative not pop. - Beautifulsound
I love Elle King so much her voice is so powerful and her songs are mesmerizing my favorites are song of sorrow and ain’t gonna drown
Oh come on, I absolutely LOVE her music! She needs to be in the top ten - kaitlynrad11
She's unique and underrated. There's a miscomprehension of her style and once you understand what she tries to transmit, you become an automatic fan.
She's the queen, and you know it when you hear her singing.
Froot reached #8 on the US Billboard 200. It has sold 191,000 copies in the US and 1,100,000 Worldwide.V 4 Comments
She is from the voice, her songs such as Broken One, Tears Fall, etc are very uplifting and need to be put on the radio. - ToptenPizza
I wish more people knew about her. In my school, I'm her only fan. It's sad, she can sing without auto tune and she has a great voice and nice style, she is original. - ToptenPizza
I am 11 and I absolutely LOVE P! NK, she is definitely underrated
Underrated? Please... - RiverClanRocks
Don’t know if she’s VERY underrated because a lot of people know her... she is a legend though with an incredible incredible voice, personality, style, and talent. - TwixxV 1 Comment
She is so talented. - DynastiSugarPop
Sirens. Go listen. - Twixx
She hasn't done anything special to be honest, she's underrated for a reason. 'swagger jagger", 'want you back', 'i wish'. MEH. her songs are okay but there nothing special - dustymuave
I repeat. She sings?
Yeah but not that much I haven’t herd one of her songs since like 2013
She's not underrated, she's just old. She use to be popular in the early 2000's - dustymuave
Her voice is angelic to be honest
What,if u kissed Madonna your golden
Lol I don't think he's underrated at all!
He is the best and his songs are so heartwarming. I love him recommended 100/10
He is bae.
I bet this new album will be more mainstream than blue neighbourhood, well-known for 'youth' and sometimes 'wild' but I def 100% recommend especially 'for him' or 'dkla'V 1 Comment
SO MANY PEOLPLE are saying she can't sing! If you are talking about her SNL performance, how would you feel if people always just bugged you about your worst mistakes all the time! Her range is really big and when she hits the high notes, it is like listening to an angel! Her songs are mostly really meaningful and when I listen to her voice, I feel calm and that there is one person who really understands me in life, and that is, Lana Del Rey.
She's not underrated, but she's not overrated (maybe to people that listen to trip, dream pop, independent music or what ever it is that's she does) - dustymuave
I think she is overrated. The girl just can't sing!
Lana Del OverREYted. - lovefrombadlandsV 1 Comment
She is probably one of the best. For some reason she is underrated. I listened to much of her songs and I liked them all. So please support her and a bunch of other artists I know. She is one of the best.
Human and A Thousand Years brought tears to my eyes.
