This album was full of gems – I mean “Habits”, “Not On Drugs”, “Thousand Miles”, “Talking Body” were all on our repeat list for 2014.

4. Foxes – ‘Glorious’

This album was along time coming, as it was delayed and finally released in 2014. Saw her perform live twice in Sydney and it made me really get into her stunning and unique style of music.

“Youth”, “Holding onto Heaven”, “Glorious” were among my most played last year.

Best tracks: Youth, Night Owls Early Birds, Glorious, Beauty Queen, The Unknown.

3. Ariana Grande – ‘My Everything’

Always been a fan of Ariana, and this year she knocked it out of the park with three hit singles… “Problem”, “Break Free” and “Love Me Harder”.

It was truly her year to shine, as she was pretty much everywhere over the media and rightfully so…The album is full of hits!

Best tracks: Love Me Harder, Why Try, One Last Time, Hands On Me, Break Free, You Don’t Know Me.

2. The Veronicas – ‘The Veronicas’

Our fave Aussie sisters finally made their big return last year, after all the record label troubles.  They came back with a vengeance as their self tiled 2014 album showed growth and maturity. Plus, they dominated the radio air-waves in Australia with “You Ruin Me”.

1. Taylor Swift – ‘1989’

Taylor totally turned casual fans into huge fan this year with her 1989 era, as she managed to deliver a pop-tastic album with every track being almost single-worthy.

It’s no easy feet to own the pop world, being a country artist either.

Best Tracks: Blank Space, Out Of The Woods, All You Had To Do Was Stay, This Love, I Know Places, You Are In Love.

Lea Michelle – Louder

This album is pure emotion, especially after the loss of Cory.  Plus, Lea also proved that she has what it takes in being a great pop star!

Just wish she made more of an impact within mainstream iTunes and radio as both first singles “Cannonball” and “On My Way” were quickly forgotten.

Hope we see more of her tackling the pop world in 2015!
