In the year 1989, Taylor Alison Swift was born in Kentucky, and is an American singer-songwriter and Pop star. Her personal narrative lyricalism has garnered significant critical appreciation and media attention over the years.
Nashville, Tennessee-based country singer Taylor Swift moved to West Reading, Pennsylvania, to begin her musical career in 2004. Following the release of her eponymous first studio album in 2006, in which she collaborated with two other well-known musicians on the songs “Teardrops on My Guitar” and “Our Song,” she gained much popularity within the country music community.
Her second solo album, Fearless (2008), brought her to the forefront of the pop genre with mainstream appeal. ‘Love Story’ and ‘You Belong with Me’ were key contributors to Fearless selling over one million copies in the United States, which certified it as a double-platinum record.
Adele was born in 1988. She is a British recording artist. Adele received a recording contract with XL Records after completing from the BRIT School of music with a first-class degree in 2006. She got the BBC Sound of 2008 survey award and in 2007 she won the Brit Awards. Her debut album, which she published in 2008, is called 19. Adelle plays a part in our pop quiz.
In the UK, the album was certified eight times platinum while in the US, it was certified three times platinum. “Hometown Glory“, a track on her album, was written whilst she was 16, when she moved to London from West Norwood. In late 2008, her performance on Saturday Night Live put her reputation in the US on the fast track. Adele received the award for Best New Artist at the 2009 Grammy Awards.
21 was Adele’s second studio album, which was released in 2011. Her debut album was also highly praised and garnered several prizes, along with a groundbreaking six Grammy Awards and the Brit Prize for British Album. Overall, the record is the second highest-selling album in the country. It’s been on the top of the Billboard charts for more than any album in the history of the United States, and it has been certified platinum.
21, which has sold over 31 million copies since 2011, is indeed the finest albums of the new millennium. The release of 21 became Adele the first female artist to receive several citations in the Guinness Book of World Records. Her feat of having three consecutive number-one singles was the first for a female solo artist in the history of the Billboard Hot 100. Her tracks included “Rolling in the Deep”, “Someone Like You”, and “Set Fire to the Rain,” all of which topped the chart.
Ever heard of Justin Beiber? Well he was born in 1994, he is twenty seven years old as of 2021 and is a Canadian pop artist. As if you didn’t already know… He was found by Scooter Braun, a prominent American record executive, and signed to RBMG Records in 2008. He released his debut EP, My World (2009), to widespread acclaim and immediately became a teen idol. Nicknamed the “Prince of Pop,” his extensive use of many styles of music and theatrics has gained praise both domestically and internationally. Justin features in our pop music quiz.
His debut studio album, My World 2.0 (2010), reached number one on the Billboard 200 list at the age of 16 years and 342 days, making him the youngest solo male performer to reach the top in almost four decades. Also on the album was the widely popular track “Baby”, which later went on to be certified by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) as the best-selling single of all time in the US. For the first time, a Christmas album released by a male performer hit the top of the Billboard 200 chart.
Afterward, his third studio album, Believe (2012), arrived at number one on the Billboard 200, and he included dance-pop sounds and elements as well as subjects dealing with maturity. Beliebers following Believe saw a significant shift in reputation as Justin Bieber was embroiled in multiple scandals and legal problems during 2013 and 2014, ultimately resulting in Rolling Stone referring to him as “Bad Boy” on their March 2014 edition. Despite this, since 2015, he has focused on his public image by taking responsibility for his previous transgressions and having regular visits to the psychiatrist. When the February 2016 issue of GQ magazine hit newsstands, it had a storey on Bieber’s desire to “reintroduce” himself.
