Criteria
“These women have made their mark, whether by challenging the mainstream or by carving out a unique spot of their own,” says Petite2Queen VP of Operations Amanda Whitbeck. “Each of them brought changes to popular genres, the way music is consumed and monetized, or the way women are represented in the entertainment industry.” Here they are, in chronological order. See if you agree who made the cut, according to notes by the Petite2Queen team.

Nicki Minaj
“Our team loved the way she emerged as a new voice among female rappers, with her bright wigs and costumes, and the way she carved out a space in the mainstream. She continuously grows, changing her sound and look at a dizzying pace.”

Adele
“Adele is a force to be reckoned with. Her music doesn’t chase trends; it’s old school, featuring organic instruments, soulful ballads and that amazing, all powerful voice. It was a pleasant surprise when she impacted the mainstream, already becoming one of the best-selling artists of the young century.”

Taylor Swift
“She’s one of the few female artists that made a successful transition from country music to mega mainstream stardom,” comments Whitbeck. “The writing, the musicianship, it’s all there. So is her prowess at being an excellent businesswomen. The industry follows her lead. She’s been setting the trends for about ten years and doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon.”

Lana Del Rey
“Since her major label debut ‘Born To Die,’ Lana Del Rey has developed a sound all here own, a combination of New York cool and Old Hollywood flair. A blend of modern trip hop and retro baroque pop. She doesn’t have much presence on mainstream radio, but her overall influence has made her iconic.”

Sia
“Her hit ‘Chandelier’ made her a household name worldwide. She has also written numerous songs for other artists like Rihanna, Katy Perry, Beyoncé and Britney Spears. Moreover, Sia performs with a wig covering her face. Without the imagery that propels most artists, Sia has found success based solely on the merit of her music.”

Tove Lo
“We love Tove, because she sings freely about taboo subjects such as sex and substance use. She doesn’t clean up her language, she’s a modern woman, and her music captures how times have evolved. She, along with Lana Del Rey, has ushered in a new era about what women can sing about.”

Janelle Monáe
“The most unique and distinctive artist on our list. She’s part funk, part psychedelic soul with R&B, hip hop and pop. Her themes are science fiction and afrofuturism. She’s made daring albums and songs, leading some to think of her as the modern David Bowie or Prince.”

Ariana Grande
“Her voice is amazing, but Ariana has changed the game in terms of being prodigious with her music releases. She has put out new songs every few weeks and seen them dominate the radio waves. Grande is altering how music is consumed, and her prolific catalog, along with her vocal talent, will ensure her force for the next decade.”

Cardi B
“Cardi B has successfully fused Latin hip hop and Latin rap with English urban mainstream. No small feat. She is also bringing about changes in the way we listen to music: Her first release was only available digitally. She’s been a polarizing figure the last two years, but also successful in blending her own Latin heritage into a space that’s becoming increasingly mainstream.”

Camila Cabello
“Camila has soared since getting her start in televised signing competitions and the girl group Fifth Harmony. After leaving the group, her 2017 release ‘Havana’ guaranteed her presence as a solo artist. She’s part of the growing presence of Latin music in the mainstream and probably the leading lady in that space.”

Billie Eilish
“Three years ago, Billie started releasing original music, pulling from electropop and avant-pop. Only seventeen, she presents herself as a cool teenager: Baggy clothes, dark colors and goth accessories are her trademarks. She represents a new generation of women finding success without relying on traditional expectations about image or sound.”

Lizzo
“We love how Lizzo weaves together pop, funk, R&B and hip hop. She filters everything through a layer of empowerment and positivity. She isn’t shy about her undeniably catchy music, and her music will make you shout and find humor in things. We can’t wait to hear more from her in the coming years.”
