The 24 Best Albums of 2017: Demi Lovato, Lights, Kelly Clarkson + More
“Sorry Not Sorry”? “Bodak Yellow”? In 2017, pop singles were king, but whose album successfully bowled you over?
As genre lines continue to blur, pop artists have taken more liberties than ever before with full-length releases. Kelly Clarkson went full-throttle soul-pop with Meaning of Life, Miley Cyrus tackled country-Americana with Younger Now and SZA reigned over chillwave and R&B minimalism with Ctrl. So don’t let anyone tell you the album is dead — the likes of Demi Lovato’s Tell Me You Love Me and St. Vincent’s MASSEDUCTION speak declaratively to the contrary.
Check out PopCrush’s best albums of 2017, below, in no particular order.
