    I hate Michel teló, but I loved to see a brazilian on that list

  • aprilcorbett

    WOW! Am I hearing this correctly?!? There's too much "good" music now, as opposed to the past?!? Seriously? Todays music, I'm not speaking production because technology has improved, but raw vocal, instrumentation & song writing is FAR inferior to 25+ years ago I should clarify this...MOST! There are some extremely talented people today...but that is the exception, not the rule


    I really wanted Lucid dreams to be in this video

    I disagree with Shakira's song, she was B I G in Latinamerica, before the song "whenever wherever" even came out.

    giving What Makes You Beautiful a point for "interesting lyrics" is kinda funny, maybe only in a sense that it's a catchy song for a lot of people

    I mean to be fair that was more of Shakira's breakthrough on the anglophone music scene. She was already huge in latin america at that point. ¿Dónde están los ladrones?" was the big mood.

    The thing is country Taylor had many many popular songs I think her career making song was the teardrops one, you belong with me was her intro to pop in a way

    Just letting you know that Ariana Grande was NOT dating Mac Miller at the time, but was actually dating someone else. They started dating like 3 years later. So NO, dating Mac Miller wasn’t her break through

    Michel Teló had famous songs on Brasil before "Ai Se Eu Te Pego", this was his global breakthrough, I don't know why he didn't get more songs to be famous abroad; not only him, but other brazilian artists could have used this opportunity to make our culture known

    This compilation is wrong. Like 90% of the songs were released after the artist blew up. I don't know if this was made by your editors or a compilation on SLtoos, but I just thought I'd point that out

  • fevreddream

    I'm guessing that each persons location will affect which song is THE breakout songs for these artists... An American or Canadian artist will break out with songs earlier in the US or Canada than what might break in another country. I'd bet that people in the UK might say Adele's breakout song was Chasing Pavement... In America there would be a solid debate for Taylor Swift.... as a country artist? As a pop Artist? But no matter where you are from, how is Thrift Shop NOT Macklemore's break out song?
