...And one tu should give a segundo chance.

I've been known to have música tastes that aren't for everyone. People tend to be a little crazy about what música they do and don't like but if it makes tu feel good who really cares, right? I was up last night watching música videos for one of the artists on here and I was thinking to myself "Why aren't they más popular? Why does nobody I know talk about them?" Then I answered my own pregunta and decided to inform the masses! So lets get started!

Lets start with the one tu should give a segundo chance...Carly Rae Jepsen. Of course tu know her, whether tu want to o not. You're probably thinking "I already know her and I don't like her, so why should I give her another glance?" but I have an answer for that, like I do to 22% of life's other questions.

The answer is that if tu amor 80s música like I do, and the fabulous synth sounds that accompany it, tu quite possibly would amor her third album Emotion. An album that I'm still mad about that didn't get nominated for ANY Grammy's. The same año that a certain someone else's not-so-aptly titled "80s throwback" album actually won Album of the Year. Not amargo, amargos about that at all. Nope.

In Short: When tu can get your boyfriend with vastly different música taste than tu to listen to this on his own, it's pretty special.

Now onto the five!


Why tu May Not Know Him: He's from England, and not that mainstream over there anyway.

In Short: He's one of my all-time favorito! artists, and as far as I'm concerned the best modern synthpop artist. Lately he has been producing and putting out his own stuff, and it's still as good (occasionally even better) than his mass produced música from early in his career.

Why tu May Not Know Her: tu might actually. "Habits (Stay High)" and "Talking Body" were pretty big hits and she was big enough to tour with Katy Perry. But tu might not have listened to her outside the hits.

In Short: Her latest album Lady Wood was an instant hit with me and her catchy beats and meaningful lyrics make her a sleeper hit.


Why tu May Not Know Her: She's never actually released an LP, and doesn't really have any mainstream hits.

In Short: Drummer, singer, song-writer o Victoria's Secret model? tu decide. Just don't sleep on my girl!


Why tu May Not Know Her: I'm not sure why. There's really no excuse.

In Short: After being a "featured" artist on many hits, she released her first very aptly titled album Glorious was just that - glorious. From start to finish, I don't skip a single song. Please please don't sleep on my beauty!


Why tu May Not Know Them: tu probably do, just not por name. Their first big hit "Brokenhearted" has a hook that I guarantee you've likely heard before, but never associated it with them.

In Short: I don't know who to be más jealous of - Nick o Amy. I'm gonna go with Nick por a smaller margin. Amy is gorgeous, can rap and dance and sing and did I mention gorgeous? 😍 They have such a massive amount of talent I feel is being wasted por their covers.
