Between Taylor Swift’s epic 1989 World Tour and Justin Bieber’s big return, there’s no denying that 2015 was full of chart-topping, toe-tapping music! But now that we’re well into 2016, it’s time to look ahead to see which hitmakers will stand out among the rest!
With new acts like Shawn Mendes hitting their stride, and old favorites like Justin Timberlake back with brand-new tracks, it’s clear there’ll be a lot of great music to get down to, but we want to know which artist you think will rule the airwaves as we head into the second-half of the year.
So now’s your chance to vote for your favorite and tell us which singer will take the crown and completely rule 2016.
Will it be Adele with the continued success of her best-selling comeback album, 25? Or will everyone’s favorite Queen, Beyoncé, top the game thanks to Lemonade? Could 2016 be the year of Zayn Malik now that he’s officially broken away from One Direction and released his debut solo album? Or perhaps Jason Derulo will come back with another monster summer like “Want To Want Me” and completely annihilate the competition.
No matter which artist you’re rooting for, we want to hear about it! Check out our poll above and vote for the artist you think will rule 2016, and when you’re done, don’t forget to drop us a line in the comments and let us know why you voted the way you did! Voting closes Aug. 15, 2016.
