This week, the women of pop are coming in full force and taking over. (With Cardi B landed atop the charts, and big names like P!nk, Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus and Shania Twain all brought the goods with powerful new music, while rising stars like FLETCHER, Ibeyi, Banks and ROZES are also finding their distinctive voices.
Start with P!nk’s “Beautiful Trauma,” the title track off her upcoming album, an unabashed sequel to her “Just Like a Pill”-style recognition of life’s messiness (and accompanying joys). Then jump into Demi Lovato’s soul-inspired new album, rife with breakup songs of confidence. Beyoncé adds her magic touch to J Balvin and Willy William’s “Mi Gente,” sending the proceeds to aid victims of recent natural disasters. And FLETCHER and Ibeyi both bring their own fresh voices to the mix.
